Warning! The following contains spoilers from the Big Brother live feeds as of Sunday, August 15th. Read at your own risk!
The Cookout alliance got a major win this week with Kyland Young scoring his second Head of Household win, and now they're one step closer to getting all six of their members to the end-stretch of the game. Of course, all that could be derailed by a rogue win by someone outside their group, and there was another chance for that with Big Brother's Week 6 veto.
This week's veto in Big Brother was the famous OTEV competition and a chance for nominees Derek Frazier and Claire Rehfuss to get off the block. Of course, there was also a chance for Kyland Young to win and do as he pleases with the veto, and Alyssa Lopez, Azah Awasum, and Britini D'Angelo had a shot as well. Now that we've got all that laid out, let's get into who won and the big twist that resulted in two veto medallions.
Alyssa Lopez Won The Power Of Veto
Christian Birkenberger recently told us Alyssa Lopez's biggest weakness was her lack of competition wins, and it's almost like her ears were burning. Alyssa won her first competition of Big Brother, and she won OTEV nonetheless. That competition requires a big mix of memory and physical strength, so I think it's safe to say Alyssa has effectively shown she's no pushover now with Christian out of the house.
Kyland Young Also Won The Power Of Veto
Yes, thanks to the High Roller Room, there was an opportunity to win a second veto in Big Brother Week 6. Houseguests had the option to place a wager on who would win the OTEV competition, and apparently, Kyland Young put a bet on Alyssa Lopez to win. The current narrative from Kyland is that he intentionally threw the OTEV competition to Alyssa at the last minute, though there's been some debate amongst Big Brother fans whether or not that's true. Apparently, Alyssa bet on Kyland to win, so wouldn't either have ended up with a veto either way?
Will Either Houseguest Use The Power Of Veto?
As of this moment, the expectation is that Alyssa Lopez will choose not to use the Power of Veto. She doesn't have a particularly strong relationship with Derek Frazier or Claire Rehfuss, so she has no reason to stick her neck out for either. As for Kyland Young, he originally wanted to get Claire out, but to better his relationship with Tiffany Mitchell, he's now planning to use his veto to save Claire and put Britini D'Angelo up in her place.
How Bad Is This For Britini D'Angelo?
Britini D'Angelo has been on the block in Big Brother Season 23 four times so far. Unfortunately, the odds of her surviving the block if she's put up this fifth time is incredibly slim. She's not aligned with anyone in the game outside of her former Jokers teammates Derek Frazier and Azah Awasum, and both were made aware of Kyland Young's plan to backdoor her. They're willing to make the sacrifice for the greater good, so it seems Britini may be sunk.
Even in the hypothetical situation that The Cookout was exposed to the rest of the Houseguests, the best those outside the alliance could do at this point is force a tie. In the event of a tie, Kyland would then get the ability to break the tie, and he's not going to miss a chance to send Britini home and give The Cookout the majority of players in the house. This is one situation that, barring a bunch of chaos, I don't see Britini getting out of.
Big Brother airs on CBS Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 8:00 p.m. ET. Be sure to keep an eye out for any developments that may change Britini D'Angelo's fate in the coming days, and read up on what the Houseguests have to say now that they're out of the game.
