Big Brother 16: Power of Veto Scenarios In Week 8

The Power of Veto competition will be held later today in the Big Brother 16 house and the HGs are working quickly to regroup after last night’s Battle of the Block caught them off-guard. Now we have the Veto players selected and ready to go with just the Zingbot left to get this party started.

Late last night the HGs gathered and the Veto chip box was brought out. When the Live Feeds returned (get your Free Trial now!) we learned that Christine, Donny, and Victoria would be joining Frankie, Caleb, and Cody in the competition. Derrick was selected by Frankie to host.

With so few options left in the game for players and renom possibilities the HGs were busily figuring out what might happen and who could win the comp.

Since neither Cody or Caleb were the original targets (that was Donny), the guys alliance is anxious to rescue their numbers from potential eviction, but there’s a risk in that move for some of them which will impact the choice to use the Power of Veto.

If either Cody or Caleb win the Veto today then they’ll definitely use it and come down. No brainer.

Should Frankie win the PoV then he just might use it to save Caleb, according to what he told Derrick. Now I’m sure that gave Derrick some panicky thoughts. Frankie said he would renom Victoria in that case and Victoria would be a sitting duck against Cody. That nom pairing would really be one of Derrick’s worst case scenarios (aside from him being up there, of course). Cody and Victoria are Derrick’s major pawns in the game and losing either of them will hurt his master plan.

Christine could pull off another Veto win and if she does then watch for her to save Cody, her snuggle buddy. Same as before, if Cody comes down then I think Frankie will renom Victoria.

Anything is possible, but if Frankie had to name a renom this instant I really do think he’d go for Victoria over trying to shock his alliance with a Derrick renom or even a Zach one. Since Donny and Christine won BotB there are no other options besides those three this week.

The two players that I don’t think would use it are Donny and Victoria. Donny knows Cody and Caleb were part of the plan to get him out and it’d be a dream come true for him to chip away at their numbers by their own hands.

Victoria would be hesitant to use the Veto as well since that would make Derrick vulnerable to the renom. She’s already promised Derrick she wouldn’t use it and I believe her. Victoria needs Derrick and won’t risk him being evicted this week.

Had Derrick remained HoH in this scenario then I’d say Zach was in big danger this week, but with Frankie at the helm of any final decisions on renom I think Zach has a lot better odds of safety.

What do you hope will happen today with the Zingbot themed Veto comp? We’ll have the comp results and spoilers soon so join us on Facebook, Twitter, and by Email Updates so you never miss another thing!
