The Big Brother spoilers are in for who won Power of Veto in week 8! We’ve been anxiously awaiting the outcome of the competition to find out if the house majority would be able to move forward with their target, or if a new eviction plan would have to go into action.

The Power of Veto Competition for week 8 was held late on Saturday afternoon, lasting several hours while we waiting impatiently for the Live Feeds to come back on and reveal the winner. Although, honestly, as things stand right now, it seems like Thursday night’s eviction target is pretty much set in stone right now to be either Paulie Calafiore or Corey Brooks, depending on who won the Power of Veto on Big Brother this week. All thanks to a huge mutiny in the house, with Paul leading the charge to get Victor on board with getting some revenge against Paulie for helping get him evicted earlier in the game.
This week’s Power of Veto Competition players included Victor Arroyo as Head of Household, Paulie and Corey as eviction nominees, and James Huling, Nicole Franzel, and Paul Abrahamian as the additional houseguests drawn to participate. No matter which way you sliced it, if Paulie was not the player who won Power of Veto on Big Brother today, there was no way he was coming off the block — and a seriously strong chance he would be headed straight to eviction on Thursday night.
After having his game entirely blown up in his face, Paulie actually told Corey he would rather save him if he won the Power of Veto than himself. Although we didn’t really believe him and felt like it was more gameplay than honest remorse over getting Corey into this situation as his ally. Corey told him not to do any such thing, which of course gave Paulie every excuse not to and still not end up with a bitter Jury member later if he did somehow survive.
Before the Power of Veto Competition on Saturday, Paul and the rest of the houseguests (minus Corey and Nicole) intentionally got all up in Paulie’s face to try to get him upset and freaked out so he would hopefully do badly in the comp. Fans might remember that Paulie did something similar to Tiffany Rousso earlier in the season, so karma basically came around and kicked him in the butt for that.
When the Big Brother Live Feeds returned from blackout for the competition, we quickly learned that Victor was the houseguest who won the Power of Veto this week! With both the Head of Household and the PoV under his belt, Victor now has pretty much almost near total control over the house, and which player will be getting kicked out on Thursday night. Right now that almost certainly seems like it will be Paulie going to Jury next.
Paulie told Corey he wants to try to convince Victor to save Corey from the block so that he has to put up a renom. That way Paulie won’t have to campaign against Corey to stay (and oh yeah, could potentially end up somehow saving himself AND keeping his allies of Corey and Nicole intact). If Victor is wise and really wants to solidify his and Paul’s new power positions in the house, he will leave those nominations exactly as they are in Monday’s Veto Ceremony.
