At (a) certain point(s) in the game, a double eviction will take place where two Houseguests will be evicted within the one night.
At the start of each week, there will be three Houseguests up for eviction; two nominated by the Head of Household and a special "Payback Nominee" chosen by the holder of the Payback Pendant. These three nominees will then compete in the Safety Showdown, where the winning Houseguest will not only secure themselves safety for the week but will be granted the Payback Pendant for the following week.
The Payback Pendant allows the winner of the Safety Showdown to nominate a third "Payback Nominee" for eviction the following week. The "Payback Nominee" will compete in the Safety Showdown alongside the HOH's nominees, and can still win the Payback Pendant should they come out victorious. If the "Payback Nominee" is vetoed off the block, the holder of the Payback Pendant will be able to name a replacement. Unlike the HOH, the holder of the Payback Pendant is still eligible to be nominated and can win it back to back.
During the first Head of Household competition in Week 1, the Houseguest who receives the most tokens will become the third nominee for the week.
More twists will be revealed as the game goes on!

Season Summary Edit
Week 1 Edit
Episode 1 (Premiere Part 1)Edit
The second installment of Tozza's Big Brother series begins with a smiling Julie Chen, standing center stage as she introduces the viewers to what will surely be "one crazy summer". The host explains that this season, the Head of Household will have to be even more careful than ever before, for his or her nominations could very well come back to bite them. She also alludes to a second twist, stating that first impressions will be more important than ever this season. But first, it is time to meet the Houseguests that will be competing this season.
The first Houseguest we meet is Marcus, a baseball coach that is ready to "bring the heat." Then we have Alexandra, a self-proclaimed pocket-rocket, who is looking to spice up the competition, followed by Wyatt, a cancer survivor who is eager to share his story with the world. Hugo is an eager superfan, wanting to play a wild game, unlike Tara, who plans on working from behind the scenes. Nigel is a former model who doesn't want anyone to know it, while Avery is an out and proud LGBT+ supporter, who isn't afraid of making a few enemies. Eve is a cutthroat mom who wants blood up to her elbows, while Clyde is looking for a fun way to spend his Summer. Next up is Victoria, who has plans to woo over all the guys, similar to Lawrence, who thinks his smile will be his greatest weapon. Simone is not afraid to call someone out, and Jordan plans on using his charm to get everybody on his side. Gloria admits she's going to be a proud fish-out-of-water, meanwhile Chinelo feels growing up in Nigeria has prepared him for the game. Lastly, we are introduced to Alice, who had to repack since she thought she needed to take her older brother with her.
With America having been introduced to all sixteen Houseguests, we cut back to see all of them standing in front of the door, eagerly waiting to enter. Julie announces the first group to walk inside the house will be Simone, Jordan, Alice and Lawrence. The four selected excitedly enter and quickly scramble for beds. Alice initially places her bag in the Lounge until Simone informs her that there are actual beds in the other rooms. As Simone shows Alice the real bedroom, she takes note that she isn't the brightest crayon in the box. The second group to enter consists of Eve, Marcus, Hugo and Victoria. After they all find their beds, Jordan quickly takes a liking to Victoria, deeming her "smoking hot." Meanwhile, Hugo expresses in the Diary Room just how pumped he is to finally be playing "the best game on the planet." Next to enter is Tara, Nigel, Wyatt and Alexandra. As the four of them claim beds and start getting to know their fellow housemates, Alexandra mentions that there are so many attractive guys in the house, referencing Jordan, Marcus and even Nigel in the process. The remaining Houseguests, Chinelo, Gloria, Clyde and Avery soon join the other twelve, only to find that there are no more beds left. While the younger three all find people to bunk with, Gloria mentions she doesn't want to be seen as too creepy by sleeping with someone half her age. With a laugh, Lawrence invites her to share a bed with him, which she gladly accepts.
Once everybody is well-acquainted, the Houseguests gather around the Living Area, where a bottle of champagne has been conveniently placed. Once Clyde pops it open and pours everyone a glass, the introductions begin. Some standouts include Gloria, who tells everyone that even though she used to an optometrist, she's "about as rational as bull when it sees red" so they don't need to worry about her being too smart or anything, and Nigel, who states he's been a stay-at-home dad since they first had kids, when in actuality he used to be a model. In the Diary Room, he states people wouldn't want to give him the money if they knew he was already successful. Avery also makes a bit of splash by revealing that she is a lesbian and that if there are any homophobes in the house, they can go f**k themselves. Victoria, in particular, rolls her eyes at this comment, calling her an attention seeker in the Diary Room. Last but not least is Wyatt, who talks about his battles with cancer and hopes that the Big Brother house will help him move on. While Simone is very touched by his story, Marcus has the exact opposite reaction, stating in the Diary Room that he doesn't like the way Wyatt is trying to play the sympathy card.
After introductions, the Houseguests start breaking off and begin talking strategy. Wanting to get right into the game, Hugo pulls aside the people he believes to be super fans, Tara and Gloria, and proposes an alliance. While a little flustered, the two ladies accept in order to appease him. Hugo decides to name themselves the "Fan Clan" since he gets the feeling that the three of them are fans, which Gloria raises an eyebrow at. In the Diary Room, Gloria explains she's never even seen the show but is more than happy to play along to see where the Hugo train takes her. Meanwhile, in the Storage Room, Avery, Victoria, Alexandra, Eve and Simone are all talking together. Avery makes the case that the five of them are the strongest women in the house and should thus stick together. Simone quickly points out that women's alliances haven't worked out too often in the past, which prompts Avery to argue that as long as they don't let the men hijack them, there shouldn't be any issues. Later, Alexandra, Victoria and Simone have a private conversation and all agree that they don't trust Avery at all. Victoria suggests that just the three of them form an alliance of their own, which the other pair both agree to.
Before long, Julie Chen appears on the screen and asks the Houseguests to once again gather in the Living Room. Once everybody is present, the host announces: "this season, there will be three nominees at the start of every week. That's right, three of you will face the threat of eviction each and every week, however, this will not be for long. Following nominations, the three nominees will compete in the Safety Showdown, where the winner will not only be granted safety for the rest of the week but will always be given a special power which will be revealed in due time. Oh, and one last thing. Even though there will be three people on the block each week, only two of them will be chosen by the Head of Household. How will the third nominee be chosen? You'll find out soon enough. Goodnight Houseguests." As Julie vanishes off the screen, many shocked faces are seen as the Houseguests begin murmuring amongst themselves, speculating as to what Julie could mean. With that, the first part of the two-night premiere comes to a close.
Episode 2 (Premiere Part 2/HOH)Edit
The episode picks up where the previous left off with Julie having just dropped a huge bomb on the house. Hugo immediately announces that he thinks the MVP twist will be coming back into the game, joking that there better not be any siblings of former players in the house. This theory seems very popular amongst the Houseguests, with Alice commenting in the Diary Room that she hopes America votes for her to win the MLP because she's always been curious about what it would be like as "My Little Pony". Production then tells her it's MVP not MLP, leaving her confused.
The following morning, Clyde, Jordan and Chinelo gather in the newly refurbished Disco Room. Jordan voices that he's got a good feeling about the three of them, which the other two agree with wholeheartedly. Marcus soon joins them and voices concern that the girls are already really close, so the guys need to stick together if they want to have a chance. The four agree to form an alliance, naming themselves "The Royal Advisors". Clyde brings up that Avery definitely seems to be the one leading the girls at the moment, which Jordan supports, saying she doesn't even talk to the guys. Marcus also brings up that he doesn't like the fact that Wyatt's trying to milk sympathy with his cancer story and argues that if there is an MVP twist, America could feel bad for him.
Later in the day, we hear a Diary Room from Hugo, stating that with three people going on the block, he wants to make sure everyone feels comfortable with him so nobody puts him up. We proceed to a montage of Hugo talking to multiple people in the house, namely Lawrence, Simone, Chinelo and Eve, telling them all that he has their back 100%. Simone tells the viewers that Hugo is shadier than a drug dealer and doesn't trust the boy "for a goddamn second". In the Salsa Room, Simone meets up with Alexandra and Victoria to discuss Hugo's scheming. Alexandra says that he's just digging his own grave and would be an easy target if one of them were to win HOH. Similarly, Lawrence and Gloria are seen talking together in the Lounge, where Lawrence, who has grown quite close to Gloria, exposes Hugo's attempts at forming a Final Two deal with him. Shocked by this news, Gloria proceeds to inform Lawrence that Hugo formed an alliance with her and Tara on the first night, wanting the "super fans" to all stick together despite her not even being a fan. Lawrence finds this hilarious and agrees that Hugo is playing way too hard.
That afternoon, Julie Chen appears on the screen yet again and instructs all the Houseguests to gather in the Living Room. Once everybody is present, Julie states that there has been a lot of speculation about the mysterious third nominee, and it is time to put all of that to rest. She informs everyone that the winner of the Safety Showdown, each week, will be granted the Payback Pendant, a power which allows the winner to nominate a third Houseguest for eviction the following week (see the Twists section for more details). However, since nobody is currently in possession of the Payback Pendant, in order to determine the third nominee this week, things will have to be done a little bit differently. As confusion sets in on many of the Houseguests, Julie invites everybody out into the backyard for their first Head of Household competition of the Summer.
In this competition, each Houseguest will be given a set of tokens with their own names on it. On go, the competitors will have to make their way through a huge obstacle course, including swinging on vines, balances beams and things like that. If at any point a Houseguest drops, they must go back and start again. Once at the end of the course, the Houseguests are allowed to place exactly one of their tokens into any one of sixteen jars waiting at the end, each corresponding to one of the Houseguests. They must choose wisely, however, for the Houseguest whose jar has the most tokens in it after fifteen minutes will become the third nominee. In a twist, the nominated Houseguest will then reach into their jar to pick out a token. Whoever's name is on this token will become the first Head of Household of the season.
Right out of the gate, Marcus, Jordan, Alexandra and Wyatt get off to flying starts, using their athleticism to cross the obstacle course with relative ease. Others, such as Lawrence, Gloria and Tara, struggle. Jordan is the first to make it across and decides to place his first token in Avery's jar. Marcus places his in Wyatt's, while Alexandra places hers in Hugo's jar. As the competition goes on, these seem to be the three common names people are putting their tokens in. Avery catches Clyde placing a token in her jar, prompting her to place a token in his out of retaliation. Avery even tries to tell the girls in her all-girls alliance to do the same, but they seem insistent on targeting Hugo. Gloria finally gets to end and places her token in Hugo's jar, just as the buzzer sounds, indicating the end of the challenge. After tallying up the results, it is revealed that Hugo received the most tokens in his jar, shocking him completely. In the Diary Room, he expresses he is complete disbelief, figuring he had made inroads with the whole house. As instructed by Julie, Hugo reaches into his jar, and pulls out Gloria's name, making her the first Head of Household of the season. As everybody congratulates a shocked Gloria on her win, the episode comes to a close.
Episode 3 (Nominations/Safety Showdown)Edit
Following a very stressful HOH/Nomination competition, tensions are very high upon returning to the house. Pissed off that he was nominated, Hugo feels particularly betrayed by Gloria, thinking they had a close alliance. He makes a brash comment, saying "way to show your loyalty, Gloria," before walking away. Similarly, Avery decides to confront Clyde about him placing one of his tokens in her jar. Clyde simply tells her that she hadn't made an effort to talk to him, which prompts the former to explain that the reason for this is because he has spent all his time up the other guys' asses. Avery goes on to call Clyde a meninist who is clearly intimidated by an independent woman like herself before storming away.
Shortly after the explosive aftermath of the competition, the Royal Advisors meet up in the Disco Room and agree that Avery's antics are getting out of hand. Marcus suggests getting a group of people to go up to Gloria to pressure her into nominating Avery. The other guys seem to be on board with this idea, feeling it would get rid of most of the drama in the house. Meanwhile, Avery gathers up her girls alliance of Victoria, Simone, Alexandra and Eve, and states that they need to pull Gloria into their alliance so that they can convince her to nominate two of the guys. Victoria voices her concerns for going after an athletic guy so soon since they could easily win the Safety Showdown and gun for them next week. Avery insists that this is their only option otherwise the girls will get picked off "as usual." Once she leaves, the other four women concur that Avery is putting an unnecessary target on all of their backs and need to try to distance themselves from her. The group of ladies decide to call themselves the "Fabulous Four," a name which Simone secretly makes fun of in the Diary Room. Over in the Ballet Room, Avery pulls Gloria aside and asserts that it would be in her best interest to nominate two of the guys in order to give the females a chance to go far. Gloria says she'll definitely consider it but makes no promises.
Soon, Gloria announces it is time to go see her HOH room. After a series of mostly insincere obsessing over Gloria's photos and hearing a letter from her husband, it is revealed that Gloria must select the first Have-Nots of the season. She chooses Chinelo, Tara, Hugo and Alice (unaware of what it actually was), who all volunteer. Once everybody has been ushered out of the room, Gloria and her closest ally, Lawrence, discuss their plan for the week. Gloria admits she wasn't really expecting to win and is unsure of what to do. Lawrence suggest hearing what other people have to say first, although admits he would love to see Hugo go home since he's "Mr. Sketchytown". Soon, Hugo asks if he can speak privately with Gloria, prompting Lawrence to leave the room. Hugo asks why Gloria was targeting him during the HOH competition, emphasising that he thought they were really close. Gloria lies, saying that she got across with only a few seconds left and simply reached for whatever jar was closest to her. Although a little skeptical, Hugo accepts this reasoning and apologises for the comment he made earlier on. Hugo asks if the Fan Clan alliance with Tara is still staying strong, which Gloria confirms although secretly discloses in the Diary Room that she, in fact, has no intention of working with Hugo but is having a "jolly good time leading him on."
The following morning, Jordan speaks with Alexandra, someone he's been slowly getting closer to, informing her of the current plan to send Avery home. Alexandra happily agrees, voicing that Victoria, Simone and Eve would all be interested too. Not long after, the members of both the Fabulous Four and the Royal Advisors along with Gloria and Lawrence are found up in the HOH room. Marcus explains that Avery is getting on a lot of people's nerves and the whole house is essentially in agreement that it would be best to send her home. Gloria agrees to the proposal, making it clear that she wants as little blood on her hands as possible. At the Nomination Ceremony, Gloria turns the first key, showing Alice's face on the Memory Wall. She then turns the second key, revealing Avery's face on the Memory Wall. Gloria, a little unprepared for her speech, simply says that she's sorry that she had to do this to them and wishes them the best of luck in the Safety Showdown.
Both nominees seem somewhat surprised to be sitting on the block, especially Avery, who calls Gloria a moron under her breath, extremely upset that she didn't go after one of the stronger males instead. Before they have much time to process it, however, Big Brother announces it is time for the first Safety Showdown. In this competition, each of the three nominees must transport 24 blocks of different sizes across a narrow beam and stack them on a small podium at the end. If at any point they drop a block or fall off, they must start over. The first Houseguest to stack all of their blocks will be granted not only safety but also the Payback Pendant for the following week. Right out of the gate, Alice struggles with the challenge, trying to place her blocks all on top of one another, causing them to fall over very easily. Because of this, it quickly becomes a two horse race between Hugo and Avery. Both seem to be going strong, with Hugo just in front at the twenty-block mark. It's at this point where Hugo accidentally knocks over a quarter of his stack, putting him behind Avery ever so slightly. This small advantage is enough to grant Avery the win, much to her delight. As she celebrates her victory quite loudly, the episode comes to an end.
Episode 4 (POV)Edit
With Avery winning the Safety Showdown, thus becoming safe for the week, many of the Houseguests begin to regret putting her straight onto the block rather than a backdoor. Gloria especially fears that Avery could use the Payback Pendant to send her packing the following week. Up in the HOH room, Avery is quick to question Gloria's move to nominate her rather than one of the stronger guys. Seeing how well it worked on Hugo, Gloria decides to lie again to Avery, stating that her nominations were quite random, with the only common factor being that she was one of the fairly younger contestants. Not buying her excuse, Avery insinuates to Gloria that the people she thinks she's working with are just using her, before walking out of the room. Downstairs, Alexandra, Victoria, Alice, Jordan and Chinelo are seen talking together, with Alexandra loudly voicing her annoyance that Avery ended up winning safety for the week. Jordan helps calm her down, reminding her that they can always backdoor the LGBT+ activist next week. Alice asks if she has anything to worry about, prompting the other four in the room to promise her that she won't be going anywhere.
The following morning, Simone narrates from the Diary Room that there are plenty of early showmances blossoming already. She notes that Clyde and Alice have a bit of a flirt-mance going on, while Alexandra and Jordan seem to be getting pretty touchy-feely as of late too. Simone notes that Alexandra seems way more invested in the showmance than Jordan, explaining "Jordan is the slimy type, and I'm sure he'll drop the girl the second he doesn't need her." We then cut to a conversation between Clyde and Alice, with the latter saying that she's very thankful she was nominated. Puzzled, Clyde asks why, which causes Alice to explain that everyone she's spoken to has told her she is safe, so she figured being nominated gives you immunity. Clyde lets out a chuckle, before laying out how being nominated actually works. Clyde jokes in the Diary Room that while Alice looks like a goddess, her head might be a little too far up in the clouds.
Soon, it is time to pick players for the Veto Competition. Gloria draws Nigel's name, Hugo draws Marcus, while Alice draws Victoria's chip, making the Veto players Gloria, Hugo, Alice, Nigel, Marcus and Victoria. Shortly before the competition, Hugo meets up with Gloria, Tara and Lawrence in the HOH room. Hugo asks the other three who the target is for the week, with Gloria stating she would like to see Alice go since she's pretty useless. Hugo is very thanful and decides to add Lawrence to the Fan Clan, making them an alliance of four. After he leaves, Lawrence reveals to Tara that they actually want Hugo out, feeling he has deals with everyone. While Tara agrees, she voices in the Diary Room that she still thinks Hugo would be loyal to the alliance and would rather him stay if she had the choice.
It is then time for the Power of Veto competition. This competition is the infamous spelling competition, where the Houseguests must search through an ogre's swamp in search of letter tiles. They must then use these letters to form the longest word possible within the time period of ten minutes. Whoever spells the longest word will win the Power of Veto. After a mad scramble for letters, it is soon time to reveal who has spelled what. Gloria spells the word "children", Nigel and Victoria (who both threw the challenge) spell "catfish" and "eating" respectively. Hugo spells "staircase", putting him in the lead, while Alice manages to somehow misspell the word "word" as "werd", eliminating her. Finally is Marcus, who spells "elimination", a correctly spelled eleven letter word, which wins him the competition.
With the Veto in Marcus' hands, the Royal Advisors celebrate in the Salsa Room, happy that they have the power. Marcus states outright that he's probably not going to use the Veto, which causes a bit of concern with Clyde, who worries for Alice's safety. He suggests the possibility of using the Veto on her to gain trust, but Marcus shuts the idea down, calling her too stupid to even remember what happened if they were to use it. This irritates Clyde a bit, feeling Marcus is being disrespectful. Just prior to the Veto Meeting, Avery is seen speaking with Alice, telling her she feels like she's on the outs and that all her allies have abandoned her. Hearing this, Alice lets slip that Alexandra in particular was really upset that Avery won the safety competition, shocking Avery very much, who had thought Alexandra was loyal to the Girls Alliance. Even though she isn't sure if she can trust Alice, Avery thanks her for the information.
At the Veto Meeting, Marcus predictably opts not to exercise his Power of Veto, meaning either Alice or Hugo will be the first person evicted from the Big Brother house. The episode ends with both nominees giving Diary Room confessions stating that they each feel they are safe this week, meaning one of them will likely be in for surprise come the next eviction.
Episode 5 Part 1 (Eviction)Edit
The episode begins where the previous one left off, with Alice and Hugo officially on the block. With the nominations finalised for the week, talk about the vote is quick to ensue. Upstairs in the HOH room, Gloria, along with Lawrence and the members of both the Fabulous Four and the Royal Advisors join together to discuss the vote. Gloria makes it clear that Hugo is her target and wants to ensure he gets the majority of the votes. Everyone in the room seems to agree with this proposal, with Clyde being particularly passionate about saving his flirt-mance, Alice. While there is no official alliance, the group of ten seem to have some kind of agreement to tentatively work together.
Meanwhile, downstairs in the Disco Room, Hugo, Tara and Wyatt are chatting it up. Hugo mentions that a lot of people seem to be up in the HOH room, and is concerned that they could be switching the target to him. Wyatt, who has not been let in on the plan to send Hugo home, reassures him that it's probably nothing. Tara, on the other hand, who knows full well that Hugo is indeed the house's target subtly tells him that it could be a good idea to start talking to more people to ensure he has their votes. In the Diary Room, she admits that while she would like to save Hugo, she can't tell him he's the target or else she could be in hot water is somebody found out. Taking Tara's advice, Hugo speaking with Nigel and later Chinelo, Eve, Gloria and Lawrence, who all tell Hugo he is safe. Lawrence states in the Diary Room that the fact Hugo is so paranoid is just more reason why he needs to go.
The following day, Alexandra, Simone and Jordan are seen casually conversing in the Lounge when Avery walks in. She reveals in the Diary Room that she's very concerned about what Alice told her about Alexandra possibly wanting her out, and needed to get to the bottom of things. Avery straight up asks Alexandra if she has an issue with her. Alexandra denies, prompting Avery to explain that Alice told her that Alexandra was supposedly upset when Avery won the Safety Showdown. Shocked, Alexandra is left speechless for a moment, before Jordan, unaware of Alexandra's fake girls alliance with Avery, steps in, telling Avery that a lot of people were upset that she won the competition, not just Alexandra, so she shouldn't just take it out on her. Simone's eyes go wide as Avery tells Alexandra that she truly had her back and is appalled that she would turn on her so quickly. Alexandra bites back, telling Avery that it was impossible to work with her because she wouldn't listen to anyone else's opinions, causing Avery to shout that Alexandra has clearly been brainwashed by Jordan and is nothing but his pathetic, little puppy. Jordan quickly defends his showmance, calling Avery jealous that nobody likes her and tells her to leave them the f**k alone. Avery starts screaming at Jordan, saying she can do whatever the f**k she wants and she won't let a man walk all over her like "the pillow" he's sleeping with. Just as Alexandra starts to get up in Avery's face, Big Brother tells them to go to opposite sides of the house.
The morning after the huge fight, Alexandra vents to the rest of the Fabulous Four about Avery, saying she's an absolute moron that has officially dug herself into an even deeper hole. Eve brings up that none of this drama would've even happened to begin with if Alice didn't rat them out to Avery, leading the four girls to agree that it might be in their best interest to send Alice home rather than Hugo. The girls meet up with Chinelo, Jordan and Marcus, and reveal their concerns about keeping Alice in the game, feeling that she will continue to just slip under everyone's radar, whereas Hugo will forever remain a target. While the guys seem to agree, they are worried about how Clyde would react, considering he and Alice are very close. Simone argues that if he's really loyal to the alliance, he will understand. Lawrence and Gloria soon join the group and are informed about the recent discussions about switching up the target. Lawrence stresses that Hugo is too sketchy and needs to go, whereas Gloria admits that she doesn't like the fact that Alice is such a blabbermouth.
At the live vote and eviction, the house ultimately decides that Alice's loose lips made her too dangerous to keep around, sending her home 11-2, with only Avery and Clyde voting to keep her. Alice, along with Clyde are both shocked by the outcome, but before too many questions can be asked, Julie summons everybody outside for the next Head of Household competition.
Votes for Alice: Alexandra, Chinelo, Eve, Jordan, Lawrence, Marcus, Nigel, Simone, Tara, Victoria, Wyatt
Votes for Hugo: Avery, Clyde
Week 2 Edit
Episode 5 Part 2 (HOH)Edit
For this Head of Household competition, the Houseguests have to race to collect their coloured puzzle pieces from a large pit in the center of the yard. Once they have collected all their puzzle pieces, they can begin putting their puzzle together. The first person to finish will become the new HOH. As the Houseguests scramble to collect their pieces, it's quite difficult to tell what's going on at first. After a while, however, some people begin to pull ahead. Marcus is the first to collect all his pieces, followed by Alexandra, Avery, Clyde and Wyatt. While Clyde and Alexandra struggle at the puzzle section, Marcus and Avery really excel and it quickly becomes a race between these two. In the end, Marcus prevails, making him the second Head of Household of the season.
Episode 6 (Nominations/Safety Showdown)Edit
After a chaotic week resulting in Alice's blindside, tension is still very much in the air. Clyde, in particular, is in a complete state of shock, having no clue that his closest ally in the house was going to get evicted. Wanting to get to the bottom of things, Clyde meets up with his fellow Royal Advisors to try to work out where things went wrong. Jordan tries his best to explain to Clyde that Alice had been spilling information to the other side and felt that she would be more detrimental to their alliance than Hugo, who everyone sees through at this point. Clyde admits that their reasoning is sound but he's more upset that he was left out of the loop than anything. Marcus bluntly says the reason that didn't tell him is that they knew he would be against it and didn't want him to make himself a bigger target by trying to flip things. While still mad, Clyde accepts the reasoning, stating in the Diary Room that he'll play nice for now but he definitely doesn't trust the guys as much as he used to.
Meanwhile, knowing she's likely going to be the house's target this week, Avery knows she needs to put her power to good use and meets up with Tara to discuss some options. Avery tells her that Tara's the only other girl that isn't currently under the guys' spell and believes the two of them need to try to get one of them out if they want a hope at staying in the game. A little surprised that Avery feels this way about her, Tara simply tells Avery that she just needs to trust whatever her gut is telling her. As the conversation continues, Simone briefly walks into the room to collect her jacket and notices the two girls talking. In the Diary Room, Simone notes that the girls stopped their conversation the second she stepped into the room and thinks they're up to something sketchy. Before long, it's time to see Marcus' new HOH room. After reading his letter from his father, similar to last week, he is tasked with naming the four Have-Nots for the week. While Wyatt, Eve and Clyde all volunteer, Marcus decides to name Avery as the fourth, annoying her greatly.
Wanting to discuss who to nominate, Marcus meets with a collection of his allies, Simone, Clyde, Chinelo, Eve and Lawrence, to talk about his plan for the week. Considering putting Avery directly on the block last week backfired in their faces, Marcus is looking to backdoor her this time around, needing two pawns to go up. He also says that he wants at least one of the pawns to be a strong competitor that will gun for the Payback Pendant so they can keep the other side from getting it next week. Without any volunteers, Marcus asks Clyde and Chinelo specifically if they would be willing to do it. They both firmly say no, with Clyde emphasising he doesn't feel confident about going on the block after voting in the minority last week and would rather somebody else do it. This annoys Marcus greatly, feeling Clyde isn't playing for the team. Simone brings up how she caught Tara talking to Avery and feels that she could be a pawn because if Avery somehow manages to win POV, she could be a good backup target. Everybody seems to like this idea, barring Lawrence, who is fearful that his side alliance with Tara, Gloria and partially Hugo could be in jeopardy. However, he keeps quiet, not wanting to reveal its existence.
With nominations looming, Marcus decides to pull Tara aside to make sure she won't be mad at him if he uses her as a pawn. Marcus tells Tara his plan to nominate her as a pawn, which, at first, gets her quite nervous. Trying to reassure her, Marcus makes it clear that he has a bigger plan in the works, hinting that Avery is his real target for the week. He then explains that because he gave Tara a heads up, he was hoping that she wouldn't seek vengeance if she were to win the Payback Pendant at the Safety Showdown. Tara obviously agrees to the offer, not wanting to piss off the HOH, but admits in the Diary Room that Marcus is acting like he's doing her a favour by putting her on the block, and thinks it's ridiculous that he's asking her to keep him safe next week when he's putting her in danger. At the Nomination Ceremony, Marcus turns the first key, revealing Tara's face on the memory wall. He then turns the second key, showing Wyatt's face on the memory wall. Marcus is very direct in saying that the two of them are just pawns and neither of them is his target. Avery then steps forward to turn her key, showing Jordan's face on the memory wall. She simply tells Jordan that he probably thinks that he can charm all the girls into blindly following him, but Avery ain't falling for any of that. Alexandra rolls her eyes at Avery's statement, bringing the ceremony to a close.
Almost immediately after the Nomination Ceremony, the Houseguests are summoned into the backyard for their second Safety Showdown of the season. In this competition, the three nominees start on one of three corners of a triangular board made of square tiles. One at a time, they must make a move like a knight on a chess board, flipping over the tile they step onto. Once a tile has been flipped, it cannot be stepped on again. If you cannot move, you are eliminated from the competition. The last person standing will win the Safety Showdown. For a while, none of the three seem to have any difficulties, that is until roughly half the tiles have been flipped over. Jordan ends up cornering himself accidentally, and after Tara cuts off his only option, he is the first eliminated. Now a race between Tara and Wyatt, Wyatt ends up making a fatal mistake, which Tara takes advantage of, ultimately winning her safety for the week. With that, the episode comes to an end.
Episode 7 (POV)Edit
Proceeding the Safety Showdown, as the Houseguests begin to return inside, Tara confesses she's both happy and nervous about winning. On one hand, she knows she's safe for the week, however, she also admits she's going to have to get blood on her hands next week, which she was hoping to avoid. Upstairs in the HOH room, the Royal Advisors meet up to discuss the results of the competition. Chinelo, Clyde and particularly Jordan are fearful of Tara winning the Payback Pendant, knowing she isn't in their core alliance. Marcus reassures the group that he had a conversation with Tara prior to the competition, where he got her to promise him she wouldn't retaliate if she won the Payback Pendant. Clyde asks if Marcus got the whole alliance safety or just himself, which Marcus responds with saying he didn't really specify but they came to an agreement. Marcus goes on to say that if he was so worried about someone winning the Payback Pendant, Clyde could've just volunteered to be a pawn like he had asked, creating tension within the group.
The following morning, Jordan and Alexandra are seen cuddling out on the hammock, chatting away. Jordan makes a joke that if weren't for Alexandra getting into a catfight with Avery, he probably wouldn't be on the block. Alexandra makes a face, before saying that Jordan was the one who threw her under the bus when he confirmed that Alice was telling the truth. She goes on to say that she wasn't appreciative of the way Jordan felt the need to talk in her defense, with Jordan arguing that all he did was back her up. Jordan tells Alexandra to take responsibility for her actions, irritating Alexandra who says they wouldn't be in this mess if it wasn't for him. Jordan calls Alexandra a drama queen, prompting her to walk away from the hammock without another word. Having watched the whole fight transpire, Avery states in the Diary Room that she knows that she's probably the backdoor target, so having Jordan and Alexandra get into a fight might just be her saving grace.
Soon after, it's time to pick players for the Power of Veto competition. Marcus pulls out Simone's name, Wyatt draws Gloria, while Jordan gets Houseguest's Choice, and selects Chinelo, annoying Alexandra even further. On the other hand, Marcus is very happy with the selection, seeing as though Avery was not picked. Following the player picking, Alexandra is seen meeting with the other members of the Fabulous Four, venting her frustrations towards Jordan. She explains that he's somehow trying to blame his own nomination on her when he's the one who's been putting a target on her back. The girls try to comfort Alexandra, telling her to let it all out, while in the Diary Room, Victoria states that Jordan has every right to be mad at Alexandra, since she was the one who yelled at Avery, putting a target on her and Jordan's back.
That afternoon, it is time for the Power of Veto competition to begin. In this competition, the Houseguests must race to collect several differently shaped clocks, scattered throughout the yard. Using these clocks, the competitors must stack as many of them on their stand as they can. To make things more difficult, on the other side of the yard, is an hourglass, one corresponding to each Houseguest. If at any point an hourglass has been depleted, that Houseguest is out of the competition. The first Houseguest to stack twenty clocks will win the Power of Veto. On go, Marcus, Jordan and Chinelo get off to quick starts, while Gloria struggles to keep up, claiming that her arthritis chose the wrong day to start playing up. As time passes, Marcus is in the lead with twelve clocks stacked, while Jordan is right behind him on ten. However, due to being too caught up in his stacking, Marcus' hourglass runs out, eliminating him from the competition. Soon, it becomes a competition between Jordan, Chinelo and Wyatt, but in the end, Jordan reaches twenty clocks first, granting him the Power of Veto.
Back inside, many of the Houseguests, particularly Wyatt, are worried about Jordan winning the Veto, knowing that if Jordan decides to pull himself off the block, Avery will decide the replacement nominee, ruining the plan to backdoor her. In the Lounge, a fearful Wyatt speaks with Marcus about his concerns that Jordan won the Veto. He begins freaking out, expressing how badly he wants to stay in the game. Marcus reassures Wyatt that he'll have a chat with Jordan, although secretly doesn't like the way Wyatt is acting so desperate. The following morning, the Royal Advisors meet up once again in the HOH room. Marcus insists that Avery has to go this week, telling Jordan he needs to use the POV on Wyatt in order to make it happen. Jordan expresses that after his blow-up with Alexandra, he doesn't feel comfortable being on the block, arguing that Wyatt needs to go soon anyway, so there's no harm in getting him out now. Marcus admits Wyatt has been getting on his nerves lately. Alexandra soon joins the conversation and is filled in that Jordan is considering using the Veto on himself. Alexandra immediately shoots that idea down, saying Avery is just going to nominate somebody else from their group anyway, so it's not going to make a difference. Jordan is left very conflicted, admitting in the Diary Room that he told himself he would never voluntarily put himself on the block but also doesn't want to piss off his alliance.
At the Veto Meeting, Jordan shockingly decides to use the Veto on himself, surprising many people from his alliance, particularly Lawrence, whose jaw is seen hanging on the ground. With a sigh of relief, Avery heads to the front of the Living Room and announces that her replacement nominee will be Alexandra, stating she warned her about letting a boy get in her head, and this is the price she has to pay. Alexandra angrily takes a seat, visibly fuming that Jordan decided to remove himself from the block. With that, the episode comes to an end.
Episode 8 Part 1 (Eviction)Edit
Following quite a shocking Veto Meeting, the episode starts off with a bang, as Alexandra, now riled up, calls Jordan a selfish a**hole. Jordan states that he has the right to use his Veto on himself and anyone else in his position would've done the same. Alexandra yells that he clearly doesn't care about her safety despite supposedly being in an alliance, with Simone backing her up, saying Jordan didn't even tell anyone he was using it, to begin with. Marcus backs Jordan up, arguing that it's unfair to get mad at somebody for using the Veto on themselves, before Avery decides to step in, stating Jordan's just mad that people have caught on to his lies and deceit. As Jordan tries to remove himself from the situation, Alexandra makes it known that her and Jordan's showmance is officially over.
Once the house has calmed down a bit, Alexandra can be seen venting to the members of the Fabulous Four, alongside Clyde, Chinelo, Gloria and Lawrence. Alexandra rants about Jordan showing what a "selfish douchebag" he really is, feeling he's proven now that his loyalties clearly don't lie with their group of ten anymore. The others seem to agree, with Eve adding that Jordan and Marcus have isolated themselves from the group and can no longer be trusted. While everyone seems to be in agreeance, in the Diary Room, Victoria voices that everyone in their so-called alliance is an absolute moron, saying all Jordan did was use the POV on himself yet for some reason everyone's already turning on him. Despite Victoria feeling this way, she keeps and straight face during the conversation, not letting it show. Wanting to finally confirm an alliance, the group of eight decide to call themselves the Gelati Party, a name coined by Gloria, and agree that Wyatt needs to go this week.
Following the "meeting", Jordan and Marcus are seen talking alone up in the HOH room, with Jordan complaining about Alexandra's "uncalled for reaction". Victoria soon joins the two men, snidely remarking that she's glad she finally has a chance to talk to some people with more than two brain cells. Elaborating on her point, Victoria explains that their so-called group has officially decided to excommunicate the two of them, and have formed an alliance of their own. Shocked by this news, a confused yet angry Marcus storms downstairs and publicly demands and explanation out of Chinelo and Clyde, asking them outright if they formed a new alliance behind his and Jordan's backs. Baffled as to how he found out, Chinelo tries to deflect the question, asking Marcus how he knows this. Marcus refuses to answer, saying that he doesn't owe them anything if what he's heard is true. Clyde comes clean, admitting that nobody trusts Marcus and Jordan anymore after Jordan used the Veto on himself. Beginning to raise his voice, Marcus asked what that's got to do with him, prompting Clyde to snap back by saying Marcus has shown that he doesn't care about him, pointing out how he tried to guilt him into being a pawn when they were supposed to be allies. Just as Marcus starts to shout and call Clyde a disloyal liar, Clyde states "if you cared so much about loyalty, then maybe you shouldn't have left me out of the last vote," before walking off.
Following another huge blow-up, it is quite clear that the Royal Advisors alliance is over. In the Salsa Room, the Fan Clan, consisting of Hugo, Tara, Gloria and Lawrence, meet up to get on the same page. Lawrence states that he's heard that everyone seems to want Wyatt out, which Gloria supports. Hugo speculates that Alexandra may be a part of this new alliance Marcus was mad at Clyde and Chinelo for joining, and that's where she's getting this support from. He then suggests trying to flip the vote on her instead, which Gloria and Lawrence quickly shut down, surprising Hugo a little bit. Not giving up on his plan, Hugo approaches Marcus and Jordan about voting Alexandra out this week, which they are instantly on board for. They agree that Avery would for sure be up for it, so they would only need three more votes to have a majority. Hugo talks to Tara about trying to switch things up, but Tara warns Hugo that making a move like that could put a target on their backs, bringing up that Hugo almost went home last week.
At the Live Eviction, Hugo and Tara decide to stick with the house in voting out Wyatt, who only receives votes to stay from Avery and Jordan, both of whom knew he would go home regardless but wanted the satisfaction of voting to evict Alexandra. After Wyatt leaves the house, Julie instructs the Houseguests to once again head to the backyard for the next Head of Household competition.
Votes for Wyatt: Chinelo, Clyde, Eve, Gloria, Hugo, Lawrence, Nigel, Simone, Tara, Victoria
Votes for Alexandra: Avery, Jordan
Week 3 Edit
Episode 8 Part 2 (HOH)Edit
In this Head of Household competition, one at a time, each Houseguest will have to roll their ball down a slope filled with various obstacles, landing in one of twenty slots, numbered 1-20. Whichever competitor gets the highest score will became the new HOH. Furthermore, the four Houseguests who score the lowest will become Have-Nots for the week. Eve was randomly selected to go first, rolling a 13. Avery then scores a 15, putting her in the lead. Nigel (12), Lawrence (2), Simone (11) and Victoria (11) all fail to beat her until it comes to Hugo, who lands an 18. Alexandra gets a 1, annoying her greatly, while Chinelo (15), Gloria (8), Tara (17) and Clyde (9) fail to top Hugo's score. Finally is Jordan, who ends up scoring just a 16, making Hugo the new Head of Household. For scoring the lowest amount of points, Alexandra, Lawrence, Gloria and Clyde will be this week's Have-Nots.
