Big Brother 18: Voting Open – America’s Care Package Round 2| August 1, 2016 at 12:00 PM EST
The latest round of voting has begun for the new Big Brother 18 twist America’s Care Package. This time the prize is the chance to change up the outcome of an eviction vote by cherry picking two votes to cancel out. Now this could be good.
This week we’ve got eight votes and we’re seeing how powerful two votes removed could be, but this twist won’t help the upcoming eviction target. Instead the voting going on now will impact the following week’s vote when we’re down to just seven votes and an easier gap to close on making an impact.
Last week Natalie won the first care package, a Never-Not Pass, which means she won’t be eligible to receive any further prizes. She’s done for the twist’s run, though her pass is good all season. Instead one of the other ten Houseguests will have a shot at this new power, well except for the HG who is going to be evicted on Thursday so keep that in mind when casting your votes. Well, unless that Round Trip ticket hits on Thursday night then it’d be worthwhile.
CBS’s specific explanation of this round’s awarded power is as such: “The winner of this care package could single-handedly flip the house by preventing two Houseguests of their choosing from voting in next week’s eviction.”
When you’re deciding which of the other remaining HGs to support cautiously support Da’Vonne because she’s the most likely evictee this week then your votes go to no one unless she has the Round Trip ticket. You’ll also want to keep in mind the other pending prizes. The following three packages will be “super safety,” “co-HoH,” and “BB Bribe.” Whoever wins this package won’t be eligible for those next three.
Voting for this week’s care package opened Sunday (vote here now) and will continue until Friday, August 5th at 10AM PT. You have 20 votes each day. Shortly after that the HGs will learn who has won the next prize and remember all the details will be openly revealed. We don’t know if the HG who receives this has to make a publicly reveal of the canceled votes or even when that decision must be made.
This could be interesting. If an ally of Da’Vonne had this ability for Thursday’s vote then they could likely force the tie-breaker or even avoid it altogether, but that’s not going to happen. But just try and imagine what scrambling we could see next week if the house starts dividing over the latest target.
