In tonight’s Big Brother episode, the episode begins with the aftereffect of Alyssa spinning the Roulette wheel and putting Xavier on the block. Xavier was working hard not to get nominated this season and now he is nominated, he knows that he has to win the POV to get out of this. Sarah Beth says this is perfect the Chopping Block Roulette power has been flushed out.

Claire thinks Derek X. is Sarah Beth’s backdoor action. Claire then goes to see Derek X. and tells him what she is thinking. Derek X. and Claire then go speak to Tiffany and tell her that Derek X. could be the replacement nominee. She does not want to lose Derek X. and she knows if he goes up, the Cookout is not going to save him. Alyssa then goes to speak to Sarah Beth who tells her that she is targeting Derek X. and Alyssa is very excited.

Derek X. goes to speak to Sarah Beth and asks her if she would want the Veto used, she says she just hopes she wins so she has options because she doesn’t know what she is going to do. Derek X. is frustrated, he feels like the biggest idiot on the planet, he should have played the wheel.

Time for the Veto meeting, Sarah Beth chooses Azah, Claire chooses Derek F, Xavier chooses Alyssa. In the domino competition, there is the VETO or prizes and punishments, the players have to choose what they want to play for. If they go for punishment, the domino route is faster. Alyssa is first and she wants to win, to take off Xavier and have a nice warm seat on the block for Derek X.

Derek F. is next, he is safe anyways, he is going for the cash. Azah’s turn and she wants to win the Veto to ensure her own safety and to take Xavier off the block, she doesn’t do well the first time and has to set and try one more time. Sarah Beth already won $5000, she sees a chance to win another $10,000 but instead, she is going for the Veto to get her HOH back in control. Xavier is playing for the Veto, he has no choice but to go for it. Claire is going for the Veto, the worst-case scenario is for her and Derek X. to be on the block together.

One player went for the prizes, $100 BB bucks and $7500.00, but the winner is not announced, but everyone knows it was Derek F. The Veto winner is Xavier, but he also got punishments, BB bankruptcy, strategy shut down, and a third nominee at the next nomination. Claire is devasted, she doesn’t want to be sitting near Derek X. on Thursday. Sarah Beth is happy, not she can put Derek X. up and send him home. Claire is in the shower crying, Derek X. tells her it is ok, she is good. Tiffany comes in the bathroom and she tells a crying Claire not to beat herself up. This is a tough situation for Tiffany, Claire, and Derek X. are the only two houseguests that she is close to outside the Cookout.

The houseguests work together to prepare kits for the Red Cross. Derek X. is starting to panic, he knows that if he doesn’t figure out something soon he is going to be backdoored. He comes up with an idea, convinces Sarah Beth to put Hannah up and Tiffany is ok with that, she is willing to lose Hannah over keeping Derek X. It’s a hail Mary, it’s crazy, but Derek X. doesn’t have any other options.

Derek X. goes to see Sarah Beth and promises her safety for two weeks if she doesn’t put him up. He mentions Hannah and Sarah Beth is intrigued. Sarah Beth does think that Hannah is a dark horse in this game and she wouldn’t be surprised if she was throwing competitions.

Time for the Veto meeting. Xavier decides to use the Veto on himself. Sarah Beth now has to name a replacement nominee. Sarah Beth names Derek X. as the replacement nominee.
