Big Brother 16: Week 12 Veto Comp Scenarios

I don’t want to blow this out of proportion, but we really could be a looking at a F2-deciding situation today on Big Brother 16 with the next Power of Veto competition. The stage is set for a very high-stakes competition and everyone knows it. Thanks, Caleb.

With only five players left in the game this week, again, all of the remaining HGs will be competing in the Power of Veto with the return of “Big Brother Freakshow.” While we know it’ll be the same competition as last week we do not know if it’ll be the same six “freaks.” Considering Big Brother slightly changed up the see-saw comp with more and differ “seeds” I would hope they’d also take the time to do new faces. I’m fairly confident they will do that.

So how could this next all-so critical Power of Veto turn out? Let’s run through the scenarios.

To set the stage we’ve got Caleb as HoH with Frankie and Victoria as the nominees.

Should either Victoria or Frankie win the Power of Veto then they will definitely use it. Derrick has been outspoken as a volunteer for renom so Caleb would likely look in that direction first, but I don’t believe for a second that Derrick won’t fight that tooth and nail if it comes to it.

I don’t think it’d be that telling for Caleb to renom Derrick as I don’t see him thinking of this as a chance to get Derrick out the door on his first time in the orange chairs. If Frankie is down from the block then he may try to talk Caleb in to a tie-breaker against Derrick, but I’d be surprised for Caleb to seriously consider it.

Frankie coming down from the block would shift the target to Victoria. Victoria winning & coming down would keep it right on Frankie as it is now.

If Caleb wins the Veto then Frankie will lean hard on him to use it and put up either Cody or Derrick, but as before, I don’t see Caleb going for it. He’s stuck to this evict-Frankie plan so far even when he went blabbing the back story. He may be honest about his intentions, but I don’t see him retreating just yet.

Should Cody win the Veto then it will not be used. No chance. He won’t risk Derrick going up and he flat out has no reason to use it on either Frankie or Victoria.

Now here’s Derrick. Is there any question about what would happen? Derrick would never use it. Simple.

I believe this Power of Veto comp comes down to two players: Derrick & Frankie. They were twenty some seconds apart in the last round with the other competitors minutes behind. Just as the see-saw comp was originally between Frankie and Caleb I think we’ll see a similar repeat with this one too.

Both are very smart guys with great potential to win this competition. Last time around we saw Frankie hopping from foot to foot while Derrick calmly reviewed the mash-ups and made his picks. Derrick might not be so reserved in his methods this time around.

Should Derrick win the Veto then Frankie goes to Jury. No question. If that happens then Derrick and Cody will only need to win one more comp, the next Veto, to secure the F3 with them and Victoria. Derrick has started to hint this scenario to Cody with “maybe we should send Caleb out next and keep Victoria,” so don’t be surprised if/when they make that move.

If Frankie pulls out the win like he did last week then the evict-Frankie plan is obviously dead in the water and Victoria is the most likely target. Cody, Derrick, and Caleb will then be forced to restart the plan and try again next week.

I think most fans will be sitting on pins and needles today waiting to hear who wins the Veto. This is huge for the rest of the game and will decide a LOT so do not miss the outcome.
