Warning! The following contains spoilers from the Big Brother All-Stars live feeds as of Friday, September 11. Read at your own risk!
A new Head of Household was crowned in the Big Brother All-Stars house, and as usual, they didn't have much time to relax in the role. Dani Briones was tasked with putting two nominees on the block for eviction in Week 6, and it's looking like she could have the most chaotic week of Big Brother yet.
Not intentionally, mind you, because Dani Briones only did what she thought was the easiest move (wall yellers be damned) to make this week. Little does she know, this week could blow up on her big time, so let's get into all that by starting with who was put up on the block.
For the third time in Big Brother All-Stars, Kevin Campbell has been put up on the block. He has been the go-to pawn for the majority alliance, though pawns typically are people who agree to go on the block. Kevin has been given assurances by Dani Briones that he's safe this week, but he has played this game long enough to know even "pawns" go home sometimes.
That "sometimes" coming around to Big Brother All-Stars is a very real possibility this week, and I can't help but think that all of Dani's reassurances to Kevin will come back to bite her in a big way if the other nominee on the block does what viewers are expecting. Even then, there's still a long week ahead, and with Kevin securing one veto win this season, the situation might not be completely out of his hands.
Dani Briones threw David Alexander on the block, and let's be honest -- this wasn't one that was hard to spot. David and Dani probably talk the least game out of everyone in the house, and he's only been part of the alliance in name. David saw this nomination coming as much as Kevin Campbell did, but unlike Kevin, David has a plan.
David is in the possession of "The Disruptor" power, which allows him to pull himself down from the block provided he plays it before the veto competition. It seemed like a no brainer that he's going to use it on himself. After a tense couple hours post nomination, the feeds cut again and returned to the news David had saved himself. Perhaps it would be a little too obvious to have done so soon, and production was intentionally holding off to catch Dani Briones (who may be experiencing some karma this week) off guard? Whatever the case, there's now a new nominee up for eviction.
Replacement Nominee: Tyler Crispen
After a couple of hours of tension for fans, the feeds dropped and returned to reveal David Alexander used the Disruptor Power to take himself down from the block. Dani Briones had to make a replacement nomination, and much to my surprise she pulled the trigger on nominating Tyler Crispen. This previously seemed like a bad game move considering Tyler could still win the veto and could be pulled down from the block thus forcing another nomination.
Tyler seems blindsided by the move, and weirdly enough, not as upset that he may soon go home as he was a few short days ago. Clearly he's not looking forward to potentially spending the rest of the game in the jury house, so expect him to come out swinging to survive this week.
Who Is The Target?
As mentioned, David Alexander was the ideal target to go home this week. Now that he has used the Disruptor Power and Tyler Crispen is on the block, the game is about to get interesting. Tyler is clearly the bigger target than Kevin Campbell, but there are many in the house who want him as security to survive the next three weeks in the house. He has a chance of surviving via veto as well, which puts Dani Briones in a bad spot.
If Tyler uses the veto to save himself, I think it's possible Dani just cuts her losses and puts up someone that won't lose to Kevin. Really it's a bad situation all around, and I'm sure Dani is going to wish she never stayed on that wall after this week is up. In an ideal situation, this causes enough drama that fractures the majority alliance in a big way, but if not, let's just be happy that David Alexander made a great game move after a rough start in the house.
