‘Big Brother Over The Top’: Nomination Anticipation In Week 1 – Update: Safety Plans| October 1, 2016 at 11:00 AM EST
Our first round of nominations for Big Brother Over The Top will start up today with a scheduled 10PM ET “Safety Ceremony” shown live on the Feeds (and available later On Demand) and while we don’t know for sure what that means, we do know what Monte, the new HoH, is planning to do when it comes to targets.
Monte started his round of bringing up the individual Houseguests yesterday on the Live Feeds and despite a good talk with the original target nothing has changed for Monte’s goals.
The group thought right now has been to target Jason Roy for eviction. He’s a Vet with existing fans coming in to a fan voting focused season. It’s reasonable that he should be the one to go as the most logical target, or maybe they could use him to their advantage.
Jason pitched to Monte (10:05 PM BBT 9/30) that if there’s going to be an America’s Vote this season of Big Brother (and we know there is going to be a lot of fan voting each week) then Monte and company could use Jason and keep control of those votes for at least the start. Think back to BB15 how Elissa kept getting all the fan votes thanks to her sister’s popularity helping to control that vote. It could be like that again. Monte may be tempted, but he’s not taking the bait.
Monte is talking with Shane and Whitney about the Over The Top nominations and what to do. It’s clear that Monte is going after Jason. He says that he already has enough allies and doesn’t need to expand that circle any wider. Jason is the top target.
So who will go up with Jason? The current plan is to get Kryssie on the Block but she will be plan B in case Jason wins the Veto. There’s also talk of Shelby going up and Shane says that’d be safe because no one has a reason to get her out (as compared to Kryssie?). Monte is a little nervous that Shelby could inadvertently become the target and be evicted.
This should only be an issue if Jason gets the PoV though (Veto comps happen on Mondays for BBOTT & Veto ceremonies are on Tuesdays) as Monte appears to be set on his plans. Jason and Kryssie are his targets to be nominated with Jason the eviction target.
What we don’t know is how this Safety Ceremony will work out but we saw a board of names and pictures hanging in the HOH room with buttons below each face. It looks like Shane may select a series of HGs for the initial Ceremony on Saturday night (10PM ET / 7PM PT) and then by Sunday night we’ll get the second installment of the reveals (also at 10PM ET / 7PM PT). I’ll skip speculating over how these two events could work and just wait to see how it goes down tonight.
We do however know that America will be voting for a 3rd nominee and that vote is coming up on Sunday. You’ll need to be subscribed to All Access to participate in that vote as well. But again, I don’t know yet how that will work in to the nominations timeline. As soon as we know more I will share it with you right away.
Update: Shane and Monte discussed the plans again this morning (9:20 AM BBT). Monte says he’ll go with Alex, Danielle, CB, and Neeley for his first four Safety picks. Not sure if DR told him to have four ready for tonight.
Discussions going on between Monte & Shane for who will get Safety later tonight (10PM ET). Monte says: Neeley, CB, Alex, & Danielle. #BBOTT
