This week’s veto competition is without a doubt the most important of the season, as the veto winner will be the one casting the sole vote to evict, controlling who goes to the final three.
Paul winning the HOH ensured that he’ll be in the final three. Since he won the HOH he wouldn’t be able to cast the sole vote to evict if he were to win the veto, but he would be able to control which houseguest got the ability to cast that sole vote. Before this week started, Paul and James made a deal to work together, since they’re the only non-couple left in the house, which Paul will likely honor.
Today’s veto competition could either ensure Corey and Nicole’s plans, or throw a complete wrench in the works if their target were to obtain the ability to take themselves off the block.
Corey nominated Paul and Victor, with Victor as the main target. Corey and Nicole went against their final four alliance by doing this, so they’re wanting to send the biggest threat home, which they see as Victor. Victor has made it clear that he’s coming after them now if he were to stay, so Victor winning would be their best case scenario.
We’re down to the final six, which means that veto competitions will be even more crucial than they were before. If a nominee takes themselves off, they’ll be one of only three votes to evict come Thursday night.
Victor nominated James and Natalie with the intention of sending James home, however, it looks like Corey and Nicole might have some different plans. They floated the idea of letting James win the veto so that they could send Natalie home, though that comes with it’s own set of risks as well.
Today’s veto competition won’t only have to ability to seal someone’s fate, but it could also result in a line being drawn in the sand depending on who wins it.
Nicole nominated both Michelle and Paul this week, with the intention on sending Michelle home and doing whatever it took to keep Paul and Victor in the house to ensure that they’re still around to play in the double eviction for them. Going into today’s veto, James, Michelle, and Natalie had no idea about this new deal that had been struck between Corey, Nicole, Paul, and Victor, but they might find out depending on who wins today’s veto.
The target has changed four times within the last 24 hours, but none of that matters if the one of the two targets that have been getting switched between win today’s veto.
Going into this veto, Natalie has gone from wanting Corey out, to wanting Paul out, to wanting Corey out, to wanting Paul out once again. James has been consistent on trying to get her on the same page as him when it comes to wanting Paul out. They’re currently wanting to keep the nominations the same, but that could easily change from now until Monday’s veto meeting.
