Big Brother 18 Week 2: Veto Comp Plans For Backdoor – Update: Players Picked

The Power of Veto competition is coming up today for the Big Brother 18 Houseguests and they’ve got a plan to target Victor but there’s a few things to work out before they can pull this one off. Overnight things got a little more complicated and plans had to adapt.

Tiffany and Paulie form Team Red

With the reveal of the Roadkill nominee the alliance in control had to work through paranoia and worries before setting a new course to get through Saturday’s Veto comp if they want to keep the Backdoor open for Thursday’s eviction.

The Eight Pack obviously didn’t want Victor to win the Roadkill comp and be in charge of naming the renom for that third spot, but that’s where they are. When the initial plan from Victor had James going up that would have been just fine since James doesn’t mind taking a bow to avoid Victor from being the one to name the renom. Well that didn’t last too long.

Victor instead put up Tiffany who immediately went in to paranoia mode and started talking about a conspiracy to get her evicted this week. She suggested the guys could have finally come together and decided to go after a woman instead. That’s not what’s going on, but can you be surprised by this reaction?

Tiffany’s allies swooped in and calmed her fears last night, at least this for the moment, while coming up for a plan on what they’d need to do to block a potential Victor Veto win.

Flashback to 12:48 AM BBT 7/2 Cams 1/2 on your Live Feeds (Free Trial).

Frank, Tiffany, and Paulie are together in the HoH room. Frank has just finished explaining why he hadn’t immediately told Tiffany that she was going up as Victor’s pick. He didn’t want her to freak out. Heh. Oh well.

Frank says they have a strong advantage going in to the comp with smart and athletic players on their side. The worst case for the draw would be Victor getting one of the two spots. As of now, both Bronte and Paul have agreed to not pick Victor as their HG Choice if they get the chance.

If Victor is drawn to join in the Veto competition then Frank says everyone will need to go all out and win it, even Tiffany. The issue was that if Tiffany won it and used it on herself then Victor won’t name Victor as the renom, but if Tiffany wins it and uses it on Paul or Bronte then Paulie could send Victor to the Block.

Should Victor not get one of the two spots for PoV today then they’re encouraging everyone to let Paul or Bronte win it since they’d use it without question. That’s obviously the simplest scenario.

Now if you want maximum chaos this week then you’re hoping for either Victor playing and winning the comp or Tiffany winning PoV and then getting too paranoid to give it away. The latter of which seems totally plausible, but probably wouldn’t happen.

Later this morning we’ll get the Power of Veto players pick and will update this post here with the news. The competition should be held later on this afternoon and as soon as we have that news you’ll get an alert from us if you’ve got our Big Brother App.

What do you think of the Eight Pack’s plan? Can they pull off the Victor Backdoor this week or are things going to get too messy as it tends to happen with Big Brother? Either way, we’ve got some fun Live Feeds time ahead!

Update: Players picked for the Veto comp and Victor is not one of the two selected. Da’Vonne and Zakiyah will be competing, though they won’t really need to try. As Frank put it, today’s Veto comp is “just for bragging rights.” Operation Backdoor Victor is a go.

This week’s players: Paulie, Paul, Bronte, Tiffany, Da’Vonne, & Zakiyah.

What do you think of the draw? Glad Victor is one step closer to eviction or would it have been better for him to compete and have a shot at this?
