Heading in to this week’s Power of Veto on Big Brother 16 the Houseguests have an interesting opportunity ahead of them as they contemplate some bigger targets.

We have our pair of nominees and the Head of Household so far for today’s Veto comp. They’ll soon be joined by another three players as drawn from the bag of chips. Once we have our full list of players the HGs in charge will have the chance to start planning for a potential backdoor.

There have been a few names floated around for a backdoor eviction this week. Caleb and Amber are the most frequently mentioned names, but Frankie has repeatedly suggested Zach as an option.

I’m not entirely sure why Frankie likes this idea which makes me think it’s mostly for show as much of the house is annoyed with Zach’s antics. Zach completely has Frankie’s back and isn’t close to causing direct trouble for him. Plus, as long as Zach is around folks will look at him instead of HGs like Frankie and Derrick who are pulling a lot of strings.

So I think we can take Zach off the list of potential renoms. That leaves Caleb and Amber.

If Amber were knocked out of the game it’d definitely give Caleb a chance to get his head back in it. It could also leave one very pissed off “beast mode cowboy.”

Should Caleb go then Cody would have better access to controlling Amber for his game and, by extension, Derrick’s game too. It’d be a loss of a very loyal, albeit seemingly clueless player on their side of the numbers, so maybe not the best choice just yet.

Should neither Amber or Caleb be selected to play today then Frankie’s choices will remain wide open. There was discussion earlier that they hope Donny is picked to play as they think he’d again use it on Jocasta and create that Block vacancy they need to get someone up there without raising any attention. Not a bad plan.

Who do you hope wins the Power of Veto later today? I’ll keep an eye out on the players picked and the spoilers once the results are in. Keep checking back in here on the site for both!

Update: We have the PoV players for today! Christine, Donny, and Hayden were selected to play along with noms Jocasta & Victoria plus HoH Frankie. That means Caleb & Amber are vulnerable to be renoms. Of course that also leaves Zach exposed to the same danger. Amber will be the host.
