Carson is the HoH, and he nominated Miesha and Todd for eviction. However, his target is Shanna. Todrick and Miesha convinced Carson and Cynthia that Shanna has been playing both sides of the house. Even though Carson would’ve been evicted last week if it wasn’t for Shanna, Carson wants to backdoor Shanna this week. Will he follow through on his plan? Or will Shanna save herself with the Power of Veto? And who will be evicted tonight? Let’s find out!

The episode picks up after the Nomination Ceremony. The house is in agreement that Shanna is the target this week. However, there is still the upcoming Power of Veto competition. If Shanna saves herself with another Power of Veto win, then someone else will have to be the target instead. Shanna is aware she is still in trouble, so she tries to clear the air with Cynthia. Shanna says she was feeling people out in the beginning of the game, but she committed to aligning with Carson and Cynthia. Cynthia still believes Shanna isn’t trustworthy. She refuses to acknowledge that Carson and Cynthia would’ve been left on the block together if Shanna did not use the Power of Veto last week. Shanna could’ve done what Miesha wanted last week, but she burned any possible alliance with Miesha by using the Power of Veto to save Carson. Shanna proved that she wanted to stick with Carson and Cynthia by using the Power of Veto. However, Cynthia stubbornly chooses to believe that Shanna has been playing both sides and keeping her options open. Meanwhile, Miesha and Todrick talk game. They say they will use this week to take out Shanna. If Todrick or Miesha wins the next HoH competition, then they will target Carson.

We next see a segment with Lamar discussing his marriage to Khloe Kardashian. He talks about their wedding, and he regrets how he and Khloe are no longer together. He wants another chance to be back together with her. Later, Carson approaches Miesha about a possible deal. He reconfirms plans to target Shanna this week if she doesn’t win the Power of Veto. In return, he asks Miesha to spare him and Cynthia if she were to win the next HoH competition. Miesha agrees to the deal, and Carson shares this news with Cynthia. They feel good about this deal, and they believe they set themselves up to go to the Final 4. Meanwhile, Miesha talks to Todrick about this deal too. Miesha says the deal was just for next week. She says no Final 4 deal was discussed, and Todrick is free to target Carson next week if he were to win HoH.

It’s time for the Power of Veto competition. A random draw determined Todrick, Lamar, and Cynthia will be playing in the competition with HoH Carson and nominees Miesha and Todd. Shanna will not be playing, so her fate is likely already sealed. For this competition, the celebrities must solve a puzzle. The puzzle pieces are shaped like Tetris pieces. The competition begins, and they get to work assembling their puzzle. Todrick takes an early lead, and he is the first to complete his puzzle. Todrick wins the Power of Veto. After the commercial break, Todrick makes his choice. Todrick uses the Power of Veto on Todd. Carson names Shanna as the replacement nominee.

Miesha and Shanna will get a chance to sway their votes before the eviction. Miesha says she’s not surprised to be nominated, but she calls out Shanna for being shady. Shanna thanks CBS and the production crew. She gives a shout-out to her loved ones back home. She says playing Big Brother has been a dream come true. Afterwards, it’s time for the vote.

Todd votes to evict Shanna.

Cynthia votes to evict Shanna.

Lamar votes to evict Shanna.

Todrick votes to evict Shanna.

By a unanimous vote, Shanna has been evicted from the Big Brother house. Shanna only gives a hug to Lamar and Todd before walking out the front door. She tells Todd she hopes he wins, and she tells Todrick that she will turn the jury against him. She sits down for her interview with Julie. She admits she gave a farewell speech before the vote. She knew she was going home. Julie asks her about Carson and Cynthia’s refusal to believe her. She says Carson and Cynthia don’t know how to play the game. Julie asks if they made a mistake turning against her, and Shanna says they are done. She says Chris Kirkpatrick sacrificed his game to make a power play, but Carson threw it away. She says her mind is blown. Julie asks if Todrick and Miesha outplayed her this week. She admits Todrick and Miesha did what they had to do, but she doesn’t respect how Carson believed them. She points out how she used the Power of Veto on Carson. Nonetheless, she’s thankful for the experience.

And that wraps up tonight’s episode of Celebrity Big Brother. Thanks for reading, and come back next time for another live recap.
