I hope everyone is having a good and safe holiday weekend so far. It’s Saturday, and that means it’s time for the Power of Veto competition. There is no word yet on when it will be, but they have been working on it since last night, so whatever the competition will be, it won’t be rolling a ball down a snake whenever it does happen. Everyone in the house has been studying the memory wall real hard, to prepare for a potential morphing competition (where they merge faces and you have to guess which two). I doubt that will be the veto, but it could likely be one of the two HoH competitions that will happen this week.
Note – I’ve had some complaints about my style of posts where some just want updates, so let me appease both types of readers for a moment…
Back to Veto talk… Barring any special moves by Adam, the competition today is not important at all. Here are the likely results:
- Jordan, Rachel, or Adam win: Nominations remain the same
- Kalia wins: She takes herself down, Adam goes up, Porsche goes home
- Porsche wins: She takes herself down, Adam goes up, Kalia goes home
It’s pretty straight forward this week, and the only situation that can shake up the house is if Adam wins, and he changes the nominations. The situation is so bad for the newbies that it would almost be better for them to throw the competition than to win.
Adam is pretty determined to go to the final 3 with Jordan and Rachel, as he said last night, so I look for another robot / gumball result for him. He’ll try, but not hard, so he’ll lose. Shit, even if he tries hard, he’ll still probably lose, so giving it even 99% effort will result in a loss for our buddy Adam.
In the unlikely event that Adam does win, he has already promised Jordan he won’t use it… so there goes that sitaution.
Here is a little tip for the newbies, and by newbies I mean Kalia and Porsche…..
Play aggressive. Take tips from Jeff. Pull Rachel aside and tell her that she’s not getting their votes to win unless she helps them get to the final 4. Tell her that if she sits next to Jordan, neither of you are going to vote for her to win, neither will Dani. It only takes 4 votes to win, so potentially losing 3 votes is pretty crucial. Let it be known that there is a big difference between $50k and $500k, and if she wants that extra zero, she has to keep them both this week.
Will it work? Maybe, maybe not, but it has a much better chance to work than just hoping Adam wins and takes one of you off. That’s not happening. If you don’t even try to save your asses over the next few days by pushing Rachel to vote for you, you deserve to be where you’ll end up, the jury.
