Celebrity Big Brother: Veto Plans In Round 5

Mark with nominees Brandi and Ari on Celebrity Big Brother

Celebrity Big Brother Houseguests are preparing now for the upcoming Power of Veto competition after players were drawn last night, sorry Ross, and there’s a plan set for what to do next.

Yep, everyone but Ross gets to play, but I imagine he’ll do a pretty slick job as the host so that worked out. Right now the players will be split between trying to save themselves and trying to keep noms just as they are.

Mark put Brandi and Ari on the Block so neither has the luxury of playing for the other. Both will want to get that Veto to secure their own safety, but Brandi is the one who is really in danger her. Mark would like her gone and James really wants her gone.

James and Brandi got into a small round of ruffled feathers last night as James is tired of Brandi taking potshots at him and it boiled over. He took his complaints around the house and Mark easily sided with him. Not that I don’t think Brandi was already the top target, but it probably just added a little fuel to James’s fire for today’s competition.

Should Brandi or Ari get the Veto then Mark’s going to have to name a renom. Omarosa is the obvious choice, but the trouble there for Mark is that Omarosa is also a tempting target if Brandi is still on the Block. Would Ross and Marissa be willing to vote out Omarosa to keep Brandi and Ari together as their alternate final four? It could happen.

Mark knows that’s always a possibility so he’s actually tossed out the idea of renom’ing either Marissa or Ross, probably the former, to make sure Brandi goes. But if it’s Brandi who comes down then I think Omarosa going up and out over Ari is the most likely outcome.

Should Marissa, James, or Omarosa win the Veto well then that’ll be interesting. I bet Ross is relieved he can’t be put in the position that Marissa may face. If she wins the Veto but doesn’t use it, then yikes, Brandi will probably hold that grudge through the Jury voting round.

James definitely wouldn’t use it since he wants to see Brandi go and Mark would probably ask him to decline to put it in the play. Then for Omarosa, well if she used it to save Brandi then we’d see things really get crazy. Either Ross or Marissa would go up and maybe out the door.

No matter how this shakes out today, Friday is going to be a Double Eviction bonanza and I can’t wait for that fun. Well, I guess we can wait and that’s fine because between now and then we’ll get the Veto comp, spoiler results, and maybe the Veto ceremony if they don’t hold off on that until Friday night.

Who do you want to see win the Veto? The competition is underway right now (started around 11:55 AM BBT) so we’ll have spoilers and results when it’s back. Join us on Facebook and Twitter to get our updates there or grab our free Big Brother App for on the go notifications.
