Warning! The following contains spoilers from the Big Brother All-Stars live feeds as of Sunday, August 23. Read at your own risk!
Following Tyler Crispen's nominations for eviction in Week 3 of Big Brother All-Stars, the pressure was on for one of the nominees to snag the veto. Kaysar Ridha and Janelle Pierzina warned the "other side" of the house that there was a good chance of the majority alliance running the table if another person outside the group got evicted and that they could be next if they couldn't make a move for this veto.
Flipping the vote is a long shot to be sure, but can Janelle Pierzina and Kaysar Ridha somehow survive the week? Here's who won the veto, how things are looking in the house, and what the odds are that the Kaysar alliance will remain intact another week.
And The Winner Is...
Sorry for anyone hoping Janelle Pierzina and Kaysar Ridha would clutch out a victory, the winner is Cody Calafiore. Once again, the majority alliance has snagged another competition win in Big Brother All-Stars, which isn't entirely surprising given they have some of the more physical threats of the house.
Cody Calafiore was the founder of the majority alliance, and while he didn't pull the trigger during his Head of Household reign, has talked up the threat of Janelle and Kaysar frequently. Can he be swayed to use the power of veto, and if he were to use it, what would his move be?
Cody's Worried About Alliance Exposure
After the competition, Cody Calafiore talked to Tyler Crispen and Enzo Palumbo about the risk of alliance exposure. Mind you, Cody was not referring to the majority alliance in the house, but the "guys alliance" that Da'Vonne Rogers potentially willed into existence with her conspiracy talk.
Now that it's officially a thing, Cody expressed fears that if yet another woman in the house went home for the third week in a row, it may send red flags up against the remaining women. For the majority alliance, that could potentially mean losing Nicole Franzel, Dani Briones, and Christmas Abbott. Ideally, the men of the alliance are looking to hold onto them as long as possible and only take shots once the people out of the majority alliance have been eliminated. Could this be the "x" factor in who goes home this week?
Will Cody Calafiore Use The Power Of Veto?
As of Sunday afternoon, there has been no indication that Cody Calafiore will use the Power of Veto to take Janelle Pierzina or Kaysar Ridha off the block. Cody is going to do what Tyler Crispen wants and, right now, Tyler is wanting the nominations to stay the same. Taking either one down would be a huge violation of trust for the majority alliance, so I can't see Tyler or Cody risking their safe social standing in the house to unnecessarily make waves.
And when it comes to the women of their alliance, there's no one worried about a men's alliance running the table. In fact, they seem more obsessed with making sure Janelle Pierzina is gone by Thursday that I think any amount of scheming by the men of the house this week would go unnoticed. Keeping Kaysar Ridha would make for a good shield if they start to sniff that out next week or make for another vote in the house that would make sure the "guys alliance" keeps rolling without too many hiccups.
