13 Players entered the Big Brother house with one goal in mind. To win the million dollar prize and be the last houseguest standing. At the first HoH of the season, a classic endurance competition. Nathan came out on victorious and won the first HoH of the season.
Starting off, Patrick and Stu went up to the HoH room and started making an alliance with Nathan. And they instantly set up a target in mind Vanessa. Although Nathan was very hesitant to put up a strong player he called up Vanessa to the HoH room and told her that he was putting her up as a pawn. Vanessa then tells Nathan that if he puts her up she will lose all her trust in him and will have every reason to put him up next week if she wins. Nathan feeling very threatened about this, tells his alliance and they all agree that they cannot nominate her first but have a plan to backdoor her. So they decide to put up 2 pawns, Topaz and Monica.
At the Nomination Ceremony, Nathan turns the keys and nominates Monica and Topaz. "I just haven't talked to y'all and I don't know where your head is up, but remember Power of Veto is up for grabs goodluck". Topaz immediately goes up to talk to Nathan and promises him that if he wins Veto and saves her, shes in her debt. Nathan than tells Topaz about the plan to backdoor Vanessa but only says it was Patrick and Stu's idea and that he wasn't sure if he was going to do it. Seeing this as an opening, Topaz goes down and tells Vanessa of the plan and makes Vanessa swear to use the veto on her if she wins; Vanessa promises to use it on her.
At the veto picking, Nathan picks Vanessa, Topaz picks Stu, and Monica picks Zack.
