The majority alliance had another one of its own win the Head of Household and, as has been the trend since the game started, that meant another two people outside the group had to go on the block. Christmas Abbott decided to target another two women in the house this week and put Da'Vonne Rogers and Bayleigh Dayton on the block to fight to stay in the house after this week.
Of course, winning the veto could've guaranteed one of them safety and forced Christmas Abbott to put up another nominee to leave the house. Here's what happened in the veto competition and whether or not there are plans in place for it to be used.
And The Winner Is...
Christmas Abbott may have more or less won her Head of Household by not doing anything, but that wasn't the case in the veto competition. She ended up getting the win competing against Bayleigh Dayton, Da'vonne Rogers, Dani Briones, Nicole Franzel, and Ian Terry. Ian sat out of the competition for reasons not entirely known (other houseguests on live feeds have attributed it to stress) so it was just the ladies duking it out.
It was about as good an opportunity for Da'Vonne and Bayleigh to win but, unfortunately, Da'Vonne was one of the first eliminated. She did end up winning $5,000 apparently, thanks to Nicole Franzel, which seemed like a solid done thanks to Day helping Nicole win Big Brother back in Season 18. Bayleigh had to complete a lengthy triathlon in the backyard as punishment for her loss, which seemed like an insult to injury considering she's currently nominated.
Big Moves, Or All Talk?
Prior to the veto competition, Dani Briones and Nicole Franzel had been in Christmas Abbott's ear about making a big move. It was their hope that Christmas would nominate Tyler Crispen and then when that didn't happen, use the power of veto to backdoor nominate and get him out of the house. This mostly stemmed from Tyler's talk about making a move against Dani the week prior, and she didn't want to give him the chance to move against her.
Dani Briones and Nicole Franzel really worked on Christmas to make that move, but she still decided to nominate Da'Vonne Rogers and Bayleigh Dayton. Now with the Power of Veto, there's an opportunity to make the move, but will she actually do it?
Will Christmas Abbott Use The Power Of Veto?
As much as Christmas Abbott likes to talk about "big moves," she never had any intention of putting Tyler Crispen on the block. Christmas admitted that the safest thing for her at the moment is to keep the majority alliance intact and that Tyler is not a big target for her at the moment. Of course, viewers know that Tyler, Enzo Palumbo, Memphis Garrett, and Cody Calafiore (who was a topic of discussion among the fandom this week for other reasons) have privately discussed slowly picking off the women of their alliance if only to ensure a shot isn't taken at them first in the next few weeks.
Christmas doesn't know that so, for her, nominating Da'Vonne Rogers and Bayleigh Dayton was the least controversial play she could make. For that reason, I can't imagine she's going to shake things up further using the veto, no matter what anyone says at this stage. Even if she found out the guy's plans to target women, her name hasn't been directly mentioned. Shaking up the alliance now would only ensure she gets the blame for breaking up the band, and she'd be an easy nomination for next week's Head of Household.
Plus, backdooring anyone at this stage would mean leaving Bayleigh Dayton and Da'Vonne Rogers in the house. Given that neither were told they were a pawn before nominations, Christmas would be letting two people who would be biased towards targeting her walk free all because Dani Briones doesn't feel safe with him in the house. It's not a move any houseguest would make willingly, so I just don't see a scenario where Christmas uses the veto this week.
