Tonight is the first double eviction of the summer, which will get the houseguests the first opportunity to really shake up the game all in one night if they chose to.
Once the regularly scheduled eviction is over, the houseguests will be hurried out into the backyard where they’ll compete for Head of Household. Once HOH has been won, the new person in charge will have just a few minutes to decide who they’ll nominate. Once nominations are made, the houseguests will be hurried out into the backyard again to compete for the Power of Veto. They’ll get a few minutes to decide on what should be done with the veto before the veto ceremony, followed soon by the second live eviction.
It’s the final day before the double eviction and most of the houseguests are anticipating it, so the plans that everyone wants to execute will be finalized. Paul is going to have to make it through the day without Kevin finding out about Paul telling people of Kevin’s secret of taking the $25,000, or else Paul might have three people who might come for him instead of two.
The houseguests were surprised with the second practice competition that they have gotten in three weeks, but this time we don’t know exactly what competition it is for.
Since there is a double eviction coming up, this could be for the first HOH competition, the veto competition, or the second HOH competition that’ll be played later in the night after the live show. It seems like most fans on social media are hoping that it’s either the veto competition or the second HOH competition, as they don’t want such a consequential HOH being a crapshoot.
The practice competition was an oversized shuffleboard with no further instructions other than to practice shooting the puck to the other end. Each of the houseguests got eight shots. The way we scored the houseguests was making it to the back end of the board where there is a little red line that marks about 3.5 feet of space. Each time they did, we counted it counted as a point.
Kevin: 5 out of 8
Mark: 5 out of 8
Matt: 5 out of 8
Josh: 4 out of 8
Paul: 3 out of 8
Christmas: 3 out of 8
Alex: 3 out of 8
Elena: 3 out of 8
Cody: 2 out of 8
Jason: 2 out of 8
Raven: 1 out of 8
The competition is likely to end up a crapshoot, so these scores mean close to nothing, but it could be worth noting if it really is just oversized shuffleboard. Whatever the actual HOH ends up being, it’ll need to be a quick competition since they’re cramming an entire week into one live show. Below you can find pictures from the practice competition.
Kevin taking the $25,000 temptation that ended up bringing Paul into the house was arguably one of the best kept secrets of the season, but that isn’t the case any longer.
The only person that we knew for sure Kevin told about the $25,000 was Paul, which he ended up telling right away so that they could build an instant friendship, since Kevin actually was the reason that Paul even came into the game. Paul has been on an anti-Kevin kick for the last week and a half, but has always kept this secret to himself. After a full week of an anti-Kevin crusade, Paul decided that it was finally time to start telling people.
Despite just having a very public fight with Cody, the attention turned to Elena once Cody had left the room and the people left in the kitchen got to talking.
Once Cody had left the room and people were done rehashing what just happened, Josh turned to Elena and said that he was shocked by her actions the week before last. Elena questioned why they were even talking about this again when the two of them already had a conversation where Josh said that he knew where Elena was coming from. Josh said that when Jessica won power, it was Elena who tried rallying people against him, but when she realized that Josh was staying, she proved how disloyal she was by turning on Cody and Jessica on a dime.
