Find out the details of this week’s Power of Veto Ceremony here:
To recap, Derrick is the HoH. He nominated Jocasta and Caleb for eviction. Donny won the Power of Veto.
Donny used the Power of Veto on Jocasta. Derrick chose Devin as the replacement nominee.
The plan has always been to backdoor Devin, and it seems like that plan will follow through on Thursday. There have been some consideration of evicting Caleb instead, but people have agreed that Devin is a better competitor than Caleb. Caleb has only won one competition in the several that he has competed in. As well, Caleb is easily manipulated; he volunteered to go on the block to save Amber, so Caleb isn’t viewed as much of a threat as Devin.
Therefore, it seems like Devin will definitely be walking out the door on Thursday night. There’s always the chance that people will consider evicting Caleb again, but at this point it seems unlikely. However, this is the Big Brother house, and things can always change.
Although the Bomb Squad is no more, some of its key members are still working together. The dominant alliance in the house is the one that consists of Derrick, Cody, and Zach. All three of them are playing a good social game and I can’t see anyone targeting those three anytime soon. The three of them also have Brittany on their side too. Brittany says she trusts Derrick and Cody the most, but she has branched out and made close bonds with Nicole, Donny, and Jocasta too. Nicole, Hayden, and Christine are together as well, but Christine is playing all sides of the house. Frankie is a rat and will most likely just side with the house that is in power; no one really trusts him. Caleb definitely will protect Amber at all costs, but Amber isn’t trusted by most of the house, so she isn’t part of any true alliances. Of course there’s Team America (Derrick, Donny, and Frankie). Victoria is definitely an outsider and could very well be evicted next since she’s expendable. Regardless, with the big target Devin leaving, it will be interesting to see how the game plays out from here.
