Ever since we started getting our Celebrity Big Brother Live Feed sneak peeks the details started rolling in on who had been sent to the Block and who was closest to being the first to the front door. Now the full Feeds are here and it doesn’t look like things have steered off course from that plan.
As we watched along last night on the Feeds it became clear that the Veto Ceremony was over. Nominations apparently didn’t change despite some of the ladies’ discussed plans. It wasn’t up to them though and the Veto holder opted against the idea of changing things up just for display. Good choice.
Let me back up. Shannon won HOH, but word is that Keshia won the Recast twist. Shannon sent James and Chuck to the Block but soon some HGs, at least including Ari and Omarosa, thought it’d be wise to save Chuck then send Mark to the Block. Chuck is doing well with his social game and the ladies wanted to reward him for that while putting Mark’s feet to the fire. Shannon knows this game better than that though.
More spoilers revealed Shannon had won the Power of Veto so the choice was hers. She left the noms in place which means either Chuck or James will be going home this Friday night. So who will it be?
Well, I don’t want to ruin the surprise for him, but James should be a lot more worried than he is. There are eight votes up for grabs and that means you need five to be solid against a tiebreaker by the HoH. Speaking of that, Keshia apparently did use her power and has replaced Shannon on the throne.

James spoke with Ross last night (Flashback to 12:20 AM 2/8), telling him he believes he has votes of support with Mark and Metta. James hopes he has Ross as well which means he’d only need two more to be in the safe zone. Doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.
Ross soon ran details back to Shannon to let her know James was counting votes and planning to break out his hard press for more votes on Thursday. The ladies’ alliance had already discussed during the sneak peek Feeds that James needed to go. With him up against Chuck, who is much more popular with the other HGs, James doesn’t have a great chance right now.
If the women stick together they have the five votes right there to make the decision. Eleven HGs and six are women so they’ve got the edge right there even with one of them in a non-voting position as HoH. Tack Ross’s vote on with their five and it’s even worse for James’s chances.
At the very least I’m expecting James to go by a 6-2 vote, but as we’ve seen frequently in the game, there’s safety in numbers and those last two votes may want to move with the house in keeping Chuck.
We’ll keep watching for more Big Brother spoilers on this first vote, but for now I think it’s a set decision for James Maslow to be the first Houseguest evicted from Celebrity Big Brother. What do you expect to happen? Could James still change the tide and pull off a victory this week or is his game done and gone already?
