The Diamond Power of Veto has been played. The great chain of Matt and Brenchel HoHs has been broken. Now, the only thing left to do is eliminate Brendon and push on toward the Big Brother 12 finale. Here’s how this week will play out.

Matt took another big gamble by throwing the HoH comp last night but the risk paid off when his more reliable ally, Britney, won the power over Enzo. Britney’s disdain for Brendon has only been thinly veiled to the man himself and despite her deal with him last week (everybody had a deal with Brendon last week) I don’t expect any obstacles in his nomination tonight. That leaves one other vacancy on the block.

Britney won’t nominate Matt nor is Ragan in any danger after this trio shared in the Fellowship of the Have-Nots last week. This leaves her the options of Lane, Enzo, and Hayden. There’s zero chance she’ll nominate Lane, so take him off the list. Enzo or Hayden will inevitably take the place of the pawn and that’s alright by me. Those boys need to break a sweat again in this game.

Unless Brendon wins the Veto on Saturday he’ll be going home. Should he pull out another Veto victory then look for the un-nominated half of Enzo and Hayden to take his place. The choice between evicting either of those two would be tough. Enzo is the new Kathy with his weak performance record in comps, but he’ll stab you in the back quicker than anyone left there. Hayden is the better phyiscal comp competitor and at least a tiny bit more trustworthy. If I were in there I’d say goodbye to Enzo, sorry kitty cat, I mean Meow-Meow.

I’m hoping it won’t come to that though and Brendon will be reunited with Rachel far far away from the rest of the season. Ahh, love truly does conquer all.

No matter what happens this week there will be an exicting Double Eviction night next Thursday. We’ll have the live eviction vote, an HoH comp, a Power of Veto comp, the Veto Ceremony, another live eviction, and then move on to a second HoH comp for the night. Phew! I’m expecting we’ll have an endurance comp on that second HoH round and unless Matt gets knocked out or becomes the shortest-lived HoH in round 1 he’ll have to fight to hold on to his winning endurance comp record. It’s gonna be awesome! Are you ready?
