Good evening! While this is indeed a show post and I don't allow spoilers from the live feeds here ... I am personally going to bend that a bit. Just a teensy bit with no real spoilers.
I think we're in for an entertaining show.
There. I said it. That was my spoiler. Heh.
I'll be live blogging the show's major happenings as it airs here on the East Coast. Refresh the page to get the latest update! So, where's the party? Well, head on down into the comments area. You'll find it there!
We'll just sit through the "previously on" segment humming show tunes.
We pick up the action after the nomination ceremony. Xavier seriously thinks that having Britini as a pawn will convince Brent that she's the target. Well, um. Azah is upset and consoling Britini. She feels left out of her alliance (Cookout) decisions.
Xavier tries to talk to Britini. He tells us that it's the best move to make sure Brent goes. Of course, if he were to put up a Cookout member, that too would assure Brent is out. But Xavier is keeping to his promise not to nominate any of them.
Hannah tells us that she's so fed up with Brent that she's willing to take him out. (Not on a date like he would think.) Whitney wants him out.
Azah is still having issues over Britini being nominated. Derek F sympathizes but says it is what it is. Brent tells Xavier that he's not dumb, had been loyal, etc. He is not pawn material, but the target. He's right, but Xavier still tells him that Britini is the target.
Brent is sure that he has most of the house in his pocket. Yeah, right. Brent talks to Whitney, Derek X and Hannah. "Nothing about me screams pawn." They all nod but no one speaks up.
Oh, geez, Xavier breaks down in tears to Azah. She comforts him. She tells us that she understands he did what he felt best for his game. She then confronts Tiffany about her and Derek X targeting Britini in the Wild Card comp. Tiffany says it was to make sure Brent stayed on the block.
Tiffany tells Xavier about Azah confronting her. First cracks in the Cookout? Maybe. Xavier chalks it up to emotion on Azah's part.
Ah, the Not a Showmance between Alyssa and Christian. Not my favorite thing. Unlike the producers of the show, I don't care for the showmances, especially if they get to the point of soft porn on the live feeds. It's not quite to that point with these two, but ...!
Time to pick players for the Veto Comp. Xavier picks first and gets Houseguest Choice, goes for Christian. Brent draws Derek F. Britini draws Whitney. Derek tells us he would take Britini down if he wins. Whitney is more concerned that Brent stay on the block so they can send him home. Brent thinks both would save him.
The Cookout has drafted Hannah in ... to a point, at least.
SarahBeth hosts and it's time for the veto comp. Spinning and then bowling again with the participants in tutus! This time it's being done in rounds. They have to knock down the numbers not in their room numbers for each round. The winner each round chooses the match-up for the next.
Britini challenges Brent. Brent is having real problems. Even so, he eliminates Brtini.
Xavier challenges Brent. Brent is starting to get sick. He gets sick and eliminated, too.
Derek F challenges Whitney. Derek beats Whitney.
Christian challenges Derek F. Christian wins and Derek F is out.
Last challenge -- Xavier and Christian. Christian wins!
CHRISTIAN WINS THE POWER OF VETO!
Brent is sure he has the votes to stay. Delusional much, kid?
Yes, he is delusional. He's running around telling people that they need to keep the noms the same. Which, of course, is exactly what they plan. He thinks he's doing some kind of major epic BB move. What he doesn't know is that HE IS THE TARGET and all plan on blindsiding him.
Time for the veto meeting! Christian does not use the power of veto.
