Everyone catch their breath after the Double Eviction last night? Good cause this week is gonna be just as crazy now that there are only 9 people left. With 2 HoH’s back after a 1 night hiatus – 4 of the remaining 7 people will be on the block.
The Battle of the Block twist has failed to create as much drama as the producers thought when it was announced. We have yet to see someone go from HoH to the block & I was kinda hoping it would be over by now – but maybe now that the numbers are diminishing, it will happen.
With the house flip that happened 24 hours before the double eviction, Nicole & Hayden were on the outs – and Caleb broke them up (were they really at Showmance level yet???). Nicole was left all alone to try and figure out how to pick up the pieces. She had the typical meltdown and of course Zach was there to poke & prod her. Even Frankie was antagonizing her a little bit after the DE – so of course what happens? Nicole wins one of the HoH’s.
The Detonators realizing at the last second that getting rid of one of their own would be dumb, despite all their distrust. They have come back together and with the help of Caleb & Victoria have the numbers to do whatever they want for now. The only thing they need is a little bit of power, and they got that with Christine being the other HoH.
This brings up a very interesting situation – because if this was week 2, Nicole & Christine would be totally working together. But now who knows. Christine has showed she really has no problem turning on anyone & Nicole is so crippled from being played so bad last week. The 2 of them seemed to come back around and appear to be on the same page. They made a promise to not put each other up this week if given the opportunity.
Zach realizing that he may be in trouble again this week went to Nicole & threw everyone under the bus. He declared he is done with Frankie for lying to him & possibly was going to vote him out last night.
Team America was given their next task, they need to get someone to offer themselves up as a pawn, and then TA will get them evicted. This task will be tough as all three of them need to work together to get this task done. So now they need to find out who to target & Donny has already shown that he is not willing to do anything that will screw up his game.
With all this uncertainty & lying & friendships / alliances breaking down It’s really anyone’s guess what will happen this week. I would love to see Nicole stay as HoH and try to backdoor Christine, but I do not think she has it in her. I can see Christine however backdooring Nicole with no problem. The Detonators have been very loyal “at the end of the day” & anyone not in their group are expendable.
Jocasta & Hayden are in the Jury house with the opportunity to get back into the game at some point. We will probably have a competition in 2 weeks to come back. If they do a similar challenge like last year – it would be great if the person coming back is one of the 2 HoH’s that week. That possibility will be the best thing to make this twist live up to the preseason hype.
