Friday will offer up not one but two evictions on Celebrity Big Brother and while we’ll have to wait and see for our options in the second round there’s not a lot of wiggle room for who will likely be evicted first that night.
Mark took over as the new Head of Household after James worked with him to secure his own safety plus a chance to win the next HoH comp. The target was set on Brandi so she and Ari were sent to the Block. Now the Veto comp is over and those results are unlikely to change Brandi’s fate.
Ari won the Power of Veto and now she’ll obviously use it on herself at the ceremony. When she vacates that spot Mark will have to name a renom. The F4 group of Ross, Marissa, Brandi, and Ari had hoped to get Omarosa in that spot so she could be voted out instead of Brandi. Mark is on to that plan.
Shortly after the Veto comp ended last night Mark told James that he knows that move, renom’ing Omarosa, is too risky and he won’t do it. He suggested that if Ross and Marissa are truly on board with the plan to evict Brandi then there shouldn’t be a problem. It’s a smart move because Omarosa probably would get voted out if she were up against Brandi.
Mark plans to renom Marissa to sit next to his target. He didn’t want to tell her last night to avoid having to listen to her counter arguments and complaints. Instead, he’ll wait and tell her today or just before the ceremony.
Brandi has pitched the idea to Ari and Omarosa that they could try to get Ross BD’d. It’s not a bad strategy, but I’d really be surprised if Mark would do Brandi any favors. Mark has negotiated a F4 deal with Ross, Marissa, and James, so why would he keep Brandi over him? She’d have to make a very convincing argument but that’s going to be an uphill battle.
With Marissa and Brandi on the Block it seems highly likely we’ll see Brandi go. There are four votes and the chance for a tiebreaker by Mark. He would obviously vote out Brandi in the case of a tie so she’d need three votes to stay. That’s unlikely to happen.
James, Ross, Ari, and Omarosa are voting. James definitely won’t flip his vote. He’s anxiously awaiting Brandi’s departure. That means it all comes down to Ross. Omarosa already promised Brandi that if she could get that one extra vote then she’d join Ari and that other HG to evict Marissa instead.
Would Ross vote out Marissa? Doubtful. She seems more loyal to Ross than Brandi would be since she’s close with Ari instead. Ross will need to evict Brandi and keep his stronger ally and that’s what I’d expect him to do this round. After that the Double Eviction breaks loose and who knows what will happen next!
What do you think of Mark’s plans for the renom and his target on Brandi? Is it the right move or should he be trying to evict a different HG this round? Share your thoughts below.
