Heading into the veto challenge today, Elissa had a lot going for her. Jeremy was on the block, she possibly had the numbers to get him out, and half of those competing were weak competition. The only thing that stood in her way between an easy week and a very stressful week is Jeremy winning PoV.
Well, Jeremy won PoV. This means Team Ignorance is all excited, Kaitlin and Jeremy are going to spend the next few days dry humping, and Aaryn will continue to annoy anyone who listens with her raspy voice. Am I upset? No, actually. I think it’s good for the game to keep people like Jeremy in, especially when he has a chance to cause some major fireworks by hitting on Aaryn. That’s fun feeds for us bloggers, not this teenage makeout session these two constantly have.
Since the feeds came back live, there have been a lot of whispers about just sending Elissa home. I think Amanda, McCrae and crew are starting to drink the kool-aid that it’s bad to have her as a weapon every week. I think their original plan of using her as a human shield was pretty solid, especially the power she brings to the game each week, but there are far too many whispers about just voting her out.
As far as who is replacing Jeremy on the block, I have no clue. I keep hearing mixed reports about how the MVP-Nom works with Veto. I am going to guess that Jeremy will take himself off, and the MVP has to select another person in the DR at a later time. Nothing else makes sense, so I’m going to go with that theory. As far as the PoV not being safe (say Nick won it and took Jeremy off), I think that’s wrong. There is no way the MVP nomination trumps PoV or HoH. Those are essentially the two forms of guaranteed immunity and it would be silly to suddenly put the new twist over one of those.
This week should certainly be interesting as it’s a pretty big decision to make for people. Do they keep their human shield, or do they allow team ignorance to keep their alliance in tact for another week? I’m going to be glued to the feeds to try and get a better feel, but right now it is just not looking good for Elissa.
