If you don't want to be spoiled on what's been going on in the house before you see it play out in the episodes, read no further!
Big Brother has been pleasantly unpredictable this season, between the wildcard Head of Households to the hinky votes causing confusion in the house. And there's probably no one who's less predictable right now than Sam, who's been playing this game with her heart. We have the results of the Veto competition.
Ok, here's where things are in the Big Brother house right now...
Head of Household
Won the Veto
Powers in Play
Tyler's Cloud (not used)
Bayleigh's Identity Theft (not used)
Sam's Free Life (To Be used by default on Thursday)
I've been doing a lot of catching up on what's been going on in the Big Brother house since my brief hiatus due to Comic-Con. It's been kind of a whirlwind, with Sam winning the endurance Head of Household competition after Winston was evicted and Brett stuck around to torment Rockstar, who I hear was extremely upset over Brett's claim that she offered him her vote. I expect we'll see more of that fallout on Sunday night's episode.
Meanwhile, Sam put up Haleigh and Kaitlyn. It's interesting, because she knows her power is going to be used to save one of the evictees, which will essentially render her HoH reign moot. But that doesn't mean this week won't count. Let's consider, for example, that Kaitlyn is voted out by her own alliance this Thursday night, which could very well happen if the nominations stay the same. Even if she walks right back through the door -- it's still unclear what the evicted Houseguest might have to do to get back into the house -- there's the potential for drama and chaos over who voted her out. Most people don't seem to realize that Sam's power is even still in play, so unless that information gets out, at least some of the house will be voting on Thursday as if it's a normal eviction.
The fact that it's Haleigh on the block next to Kaitlyn is particularly interesting, because Fessy is close to both of them. In fact, he seems to have an interest in Haleigh, and Kaitlyn seems to have an interest in Fessy. Now Fessy has the Veto and not only has to decide whether or not to use it, but who to use it on. On Saturday night, he told Kaitlyn he wasn't sure if he was going to use it on her or if he was going to use it at all. Understandably, this did not go over well with Kaitlyn, who got emotional during the conversation and eventually excused herself and went to the Diary Room for a while.
Fessy, meanwhile, still seems baffled over how Winston went home over Brett. It's clear he's realizing there's a lot more to the game of Big Brother than simply following the rules and procedures for competitions and voting. I think he wants to use the Veto on Haleigh, but it's unclear right now who Sam would put up as a replacement, which may mean the safe thing to do would be to just let the nominations stay and try to get the votes for Haleigh.
So, as of right now, I'm not clear on whether or not the Veto will be used, who it will be used on or who Sam puts up as a replacement if it is used. We'll update if we get more information.
