The new Heads of Household for week 5 got together last night and this morning to firm up their plan for this week’s eviction. A big part of that plan, however, was dependent on whether or not the chosen pawns would be able to play their part as ordered at the Battle of the Block.
Instead of doing what we had hoped and going head to head this week, new HoHs Vanessa and Jackie decided to work together. Yes, another week of pointless Battle of the Block nonsense because the two HoHs aren’t competing, they are collaborating.
Together, after a bit of back and forth, Vanessa and Jackie decided their main target for the week would be Austin. For Vanessa, this is all about Austin going behind her back making game moves without telling her, and then lying to her face about it. Jackie just considers Austin a good target, especially with the whole Liz thing going on. She just wants to stay HoH so she is in no accidental danger of anything weird happening to her.
For the Eviction Nominations, Jackie put up James and Liz/Julia. The plan was for James to throw the Battle of the Block so that Vanessa is dethroned and Jackie stays HoH. Meanwhile, Vanessa nominated Clay and Becky, who were supposed to win the Battle of the Block so James and Liz/Julia remain as the Eviction Nominees. This would pave the way for the Veto to hopefully be used on James in the future, with Austin going up as the Replacement Nominee.
At the Battle of the Block on Friday, things did not quite go according to plan… Instead of James and Liz/Julia losing Battle of the Block, they won! This means that Clay and Becky will stay on the block, and Vanessa will remain HoH. So any backdooring going on will be blood on her hands.
Will Austin still be the target? Or will Vanessa re-evaluate her options and decide on a different plan?
Whatever that plan might be, it is now too late to get the twins out before both of them get to enter the house. Welcome to the game Julia!
