Big Brother 23 Spoilers Week 7 Power of Veto Ceremony Results (08/23/21)

The moment Derek Xiao didn’t play in this week’s Big Brother High Roller’s Room Competition, and then didn’t get selected to play in this week’s Big Brother 23 Power of Veto Competition, it became very clear that he would be this week’s target. Whether he stayed or left would depend on if he could successfully campaign against his close ally Claire Rehfuss. Derek X had a bit of hope to stay in the Big Brother 23 house on Thursday, when Sarah Beth originally spoke of plans to possibly target Alyssa Lopez or Xavier Prather. 

However, by Friday,  Head of Household Sarah Beth Steagall had tunnel vision on getting Derek X out this week. Now, everything has aligned in her favor. Derek X will go on the block today when Xavier uses the Power of Veto to remove himself from the block.

Derek X has made attempts to stay off the block. On Sunday, Tiffany Mitchell, Hannah Chaddha, and Derek X tried to work on getting Hannah on the block instead of Derek X, because then Derek X would be safe and they would just sacrifice Claire this week by having the majority to vote her out over Hannah. 

This wasn’t a bad plan, especially knowing that the Cookout will remain loyal, at least for now, so Hannah would be safe and Claire would go to the jury house. Unfortunately, Sarah Beth isn’t one to change her mind easily. She made a decision that Derek X has to go this week, and she’s not backing down on it anytime soon.

Xavier removed himself from the block. Derek X went up as his replacement.

It’s not completely over for Derek X this week, but he would need Kyland and Xavier’s votes, which doesn’t seem likely at all, or Azah and Derek F’s votes, which is more likely but still only a slight chance. However, stranger things have happened, so let’s see if Derek X can save himself from eviction this week.
