Over the past few days the vote count has stacked up against Zach despite his sense of confidence in his alliance to keep him safe this week. He sees the four voting Detonators plus Caleb as his surefire way to avoid the tie-breaker by Nicole with the eight votes up for grabs. It’s not going to work out that way though.
Flashback on your Live Feeds to 10:43PM BBT 8/4 Cams 3/4 to find Christine telling Cody how they can split the votes to keep it close and potentially avoid having Zach blow them up on the way out the door.
Hayden, Frankie, Victoria, and Caleb would all vote to keep Zach, explains Christine. Then she would join Cody, Donny, and Derrick to evict Zach. The 4-4 vote would let Nicole happily vote to evict Zach. It would all be planned to to make it look like just Caleb flipped on him while the majority of the house was in on the decision.
It kinda seems backwards to me if Hayden is set on evicting Zach that he’d suddenly agree to vote the opposite way. Just one flipped vote in the other direction and Zach would stay. The plan comes off a little half-baked to me, but I understand the goal and that part makes sense. It doesn’t really matter though as it didn’t last too long.
After a talk with Christine in the hammock with Derrick they talk with Cody about the 4-4 plan. Flashback to 2:57AM BBT 8/5 to find Christine, Cody, and Derrick whispering in the kitchen. Cody says he thinks the 4-4 vote is a bad idea. Derrick agrees and says they need to make it unanimous and do the damage control as he heads out the door. Yes, even Frankie is in on voting out Zach this week.
Christine says if they’re going to make it unanimous then they need to tell Zach before someone else does. Derrick doesn’t think anyone would tell Zach. Christine worries Victoria could slip up or Caleb could just flat out tell him.
The discussion wobbles on the unanimous vote but Derrick asserts that if they try the 4-4 vote and something goes wrong then they’ll have trouble. Derrick thinks they need to just hold tight for a few more days and see where things go naturally with the votes before trying to do more vote controls just yet.
Zach is headed out the door and would be the first Jury member if there’s a 9-HG Jury again this season like last. The HGs could try for a fancy split-vote with Nicole voting out Zach, but I’d be surprised for them to take that risk. It’ll most likely be another block vote.
Don’t forget though, Thursday night is our first Double Eviction event of the season and all these carefully constructed plans could fly out the door along with the second evictee amid all the chaos that we could get that night!
