Who won Power of Veto on Big Brother tonight was pretty much a do or die prospect for eviction nominees Natalie Negrotti and veteran James Huling. Head of Household Victor Arroyo and his allies, which at this point includes everyone else in the house except James and Natalie, had no interest at all in changing the nominations. So if James or Natalie didn’t win the Veto, they were certain to stay on the block, and for one of them to go home this week.
CBS just loves to cross-promote their television shows, so this week’s Power of Veto was a MacGyver themed competition as a bit of freebie advertising for the network’s upcoming reboot. From what we heard on the Big Brother Live Feeds about the competition, which took place on Saturday, it sounded like it was going to be a fun challenge for the viewers. Even if not so fun really for James and Natalie, who would be battling for their lives in the Big Brother 18 house.
Before the Power of Veto challenge, James Huling swore repeatedly to flirtmance partner Natalie Negrotti that he would use the PoV to save her instead of himself if he won it. Natalie had previously sworn to James that she would use the Veto to rescue him if she grabbed it. Frankly, we felt James was more actually serious about that than Natalie was, but who knows?
We’ll never find out, however, if Natalie and/or James might have been telling the truth about sacrificing the Veto to save the other one. Unfortunately for both of them, the houseguest who won Power of Veto on Big Brother tonight ended up being the big lug himself, Corey Brooks.
That pretty much sealed the deal on the nominations, as Corey wasn’t about to save James or Natalie from the block, and stuck with the plan of leaving them both up for eviction night. Either James or Natalie will be getting evicted on Thursday night, and this time there will be no second chances for the houseguest who goes off to Jury.
