Just when you thought this season of CBS’s Big Brother was gonna be a snoozefest, a few key twists have turned the game upside down, making it one of the craziest seasons yet. With Head of Household Brendon avenging the ousting of his girlfriend Rachel, and Matt holding the coveted Diamond Power of Veto, it really is time to expect the unexpected.
This week Brendon nominated Lane and Ragan for eviction, meaning their only chance to stay in the game is to win the Power of Veto. And while the Power of Veto competition won’t air until Wednesday night, it’s already a done deal. Plus, a new Pandora’s Box twist is revealed. So who won the Power of Veto this week on Big Brother 12? And what happened at the POV ceremony? Only peek if you really want to know before the show airs on CBS!
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD :DO NOT READ IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO KNOW THE OUTCOME OF THE WEEK 6 BIG BROTHER POV COMPETION AND POV CEREMONYOR THE LATEST PANDORA’S BOX TWIST.
Expect some major fireworks this week on Big Brother 12. According to Big Brother Network, Ragan won the Power of Veto competition. Which is great news for him, but not so great news for everyone else. First and foremost, Ragan will remain in the house for another week and will get the $20,000 prize for his two week saboteur stint. That is, if he actually completed all of his tasks. I don’t think CBS has shown him complete 3 sab tasks each week, but if he did then he will get the money because he escaped eviction. Good for him. That was surely the easiest 20G he ever earned.
During Monday afternoon’s POV ceremony, Ragan used the POV to save himself. So HOH Brendon put Matt on the block as Ragan’s replacement. Now this is going to get good! Because with the Diamond Power of Veto in his back pocket, Matt will undoubtedly use it to take himself off the block. He then gets to hand pick his replacement. Right now, even though Brendon is the current HOH, Matt has the most power in the house. And the only one that knows it is him. Until Thursday’s live show, that is.
Finally, if you saw Big Brother 12 last night (or if you DVR’d it and it didn’t record due to the golf tourney on CBS followed by 60 Minutes, you can read my recap here ) surely you were intrigued by the teaser about Pandora’s Box coming into play again, followed by a doorbell ring.
Well- ANOTHER SPOILER ALERT– Pandora’s Box is indeed opened by Brendon. And what it unleashes is Rachel- back into the Big Brother house for a 24 hour reign of terror! The only problem for Brendon is he misses reuniting with his girl because by opening Pandora’s Box he is now locked out of the Big Brother house. But Rachel uses her time to call out all the haters for unanimously voting her out. You can read more about Rachel’s return to the Big Brother house here.
