The Big Brother 19 Power of Veto competition is coming up today for the Houseguests and given what we know of the situation there’s a whole lot of fuss over what’s likely going to be nothing.
Update: Veto comp underway as of 2:35 PM BBT. Kevin & Raven were picked to join the comp. Christmas will be hosting.
Paul made his nominee picks last night which set off a firestorm of arguments through the house, some getting extremely heated, and now Big Brother is piling on the stress. Just as HGs thought they might be able to settle down and rest the announcement of a Big Brother Storm Watch ripped that chance away.
Starting at 12:45 AM BBT overnight the HGs were repeatedly dragged in to the living room to be given details about various weather related events. Fictional, of course. These details will be used in Saturday’s Veto comp so the HGs have to study up if they want to win.
As of now the HGs still don’t even know if they’ll be competing so a lot of them are studying up for nothing. Actually, they’re all studying up for nothing. Probably. Jessica has her Hex ready to go now that she’s on the Block and has promised Cody that even if it’s just him up there that she’d use it. Houseguests are pressing her on that stance.
Last night Paul and Christmas each worked on Jessica individually to suggest that she should consider not using the Hex and letting Cody get evicted. Now I’d say there are a couple of problems here. One, her not using the power this week just extends her chances of using it next week instead. Second, she’s not going to give up Cody for them.
All the same, the house will probably continue to try and convince her of that move. Paul wants to win the Veto and his plan there may be to save Jessica so it’s just Cody on the Block (plus another pawn, of course). In that situation they’d have an easier argument of “don’t use the Hex.” If she was still up there she’d have an easier excuse of saving herself and Cody.
Update: Group discussion this morning is for Jason to be saved & they’ll then still try to talk Jessica down from using her Hex. Won’t work.
As for the comp itself, this will likely be similar to last year’s Veto comp in Week 9. Remember who won that? It’s okay, I had to check too. Oh, look at that. Paul won this comp last season. Well, I wouldn’t say he’s a sure thing for it, but he’s got an edge and from listening in on their studying sessions last night he definitely knows his stuff.
We’ll watch for the Veto players to be picked later but with Jason on the Block thanks to losing the Temptation Competition it means he’ll be taking up one of the three spots. Just two other vacancies to fill in the day’s event. When results are back for the player pick and the comp we’ll share the updates.
What do you want to happen today in the Big Brother Veto comp? Are you even concerned given Jessica will most likely (I’d say it’s all but certain) Share your thoughts below.
