The outcome of today’s veto competition will be solely based around either nominee winning, as they’re the only two that could really shake up the plans for this week.
Jessica nominated Josh and Ramses. Christmas, Cody, and Jason were selected to play in the veto alongside them. Jessica and Cody’s target is Josh, so they’re hoping for anyone but Josh to win. However, nearly everyone else other than Mark and Elena are planning on keeping Josh in the house and sending Ramses out, behind the backs of Cody, Jessica, Elena, and Mark. Which means that either nominee winning could seriously throw a wrench in this week’s plans.
The POV competition is always scheduled for Saturday afternoon, the day after nominations, but it was abruptly moved to being played Friday night, just hours after nominations were made.
Alex nominated Dominique and Jessica. Christmas, Jason, and Kevin were chosen to play in the veto competition alongside them. This week’s veto competition caught all the houseguests by surprise, leaving some thinking that there is going to be a special Sunday eviction. We don’t know exactly why it was moved up, but it’s possible that production wanted to get it out of the way so that they can prepare for the Battle Back competitions that could possibly take course over a couple days.
This week’s Power of Veto competition is going to be crucial to determining what’s going to come of Thursday’s eviction, but in a very different way than what you’d probably be expecting.
Typically the Head of Household is worried about the nominees winning the veto or the backdoor target being selected to play in it, but that isn’t the case this week. Both of Paul’s nominees are pawns that he wants to win and with Christmas’ ability to swap places with any selected player, there is no chance that Cody will get to play in today’s competition.
It might just be the first veto competition of the summer, but the had the possibility to really shake things up based on could have ended up winning.
Jillian and Alex were the nominees, as Alex was nominated after Megan self-evicted, which meant that the two girls and Cody were guaranteed to play in the competition, alongside Raven, Matt, and Jason. Cody, Matt, Mark, Paul, Jessica, Elena, and Raven’s target this week is Alex, but this is Big Brother and things can always flip on a dime.
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.
