We’ve got a new Head of Household as Ross took control overnight Friday and while nominations were in the works we saw him developing a plan that would shift from the original obvious target of Omarosa. Instead of going for the expected eviction Ross had an idea that maybe it was time to evict a bigger threat: Shannon.
Actually, it looks like Brandi and Ari had the idea (Flashback 1:25PM BBT Saturday – hat tip @bigbrothrgossip) and passed it along to Ross. Then, talking with Marissa yesterday we saw Ross continue to develop a plan that would send Shannon out the backdoor given the chance. Ross would still go with nominating Omarosa and ally Keshia, but if either came down then he’d go for Shannon while she was vulnerable.
By the end of the night, Omarosa and Keshia were sent to the Block with this potential Backdoor there but unannounced in case they needed to pull the plug. No need to alert Shannon to their ideas.
Today the talks resurfaced and this time Ross was telling Marissa it just wasn’t the right time. Flashback to 12:40PM BBT. They’re alone in the LA bedroom agreeing that maybe they better not go after Shannon just yet. Hold that thought. In walks Mark and talks spin up to the idea of maybe they should take this chance to go after a bigger target than Omarosa. Well guess who love this idea? Mark, Mark, and Mark. He’s fully on board. Of course, that was also after Mark offered himself as a pawn in case someone came down, so yeah, BD’ing Shannon would obviously be way more appealing than having to go up as a pawn.
So now the three of them are all in agreement. Ross tells Mark and Marissa that if this can be done quickly and quietly he’ll go for it. Considering we’re expecting Veto and Eviction all in one swift event on Monday night that would be the situation Ross hopes to have.
Ross soon went upstairs (Flashback to 12:55 PM BBT) and let Brandi know that Mark was on board with the idea of targeting Shannon for a backdoor. Their concern now is if Mark will open his mouth to James. Both agree that they can’t leave Mark and James alone in a room for the next few days.
Alright, so there we have it. Ross is considering getting rid of Shannon with a Backdoor move this week. Veto is still coming up and HGs were told to prepare for drawing players this afternoon, but that still hasn’t happened yet so we don’t even know if Shannon would be playing or not. Julie Chen mentioned the Veto would play out live on Monday, but that could just be the Veto Ceremony portion, we don’t know for sure. Either way, we’ll be ready to see if this is even still a possibility or if Shannon will get to play and pull off another spectacular Veto victory.
What do you think of this plan? Is it a big mistake by Ross to go after Shannon or is this the chance he needs to take if the stars align? Share your thoughts!
