8:00 p.m. – “Previously on ‘Big Brother’!” In the 34th episode, the players competed in a dentist-themed HOH challenge, with Jag eking out a second consecutive victory. Based on a lie Cory told her, Bowie felt that she couldn’t trust Jag and Matt anymore. Elsewhere, Cirie and Felicia cemented their Final 4 deal with the boys. In the end, Jag nominated America and Blue for eviction, revealing he wanted to oust Blue because she’s a major competition threat. How will the Veto shake up this week’s nominations, if at all?
8:03 p.m. – Even though Jag told Blue that he was just a pawn, he put her on the block because Blue has been one of the biggest competitors in comps and his vision for the end game is to take out anyone who could potentially beat him in the final comps. Meanwhile, America was convinced that she was the house target for the week because she’d be an easy vote now that Cory was no longer in the house to support her.
8:06 p.m. – After noms, Bowie was feeling better about her relationship with Matt and Jag, putting aside the whispers Cory had put in her head that she couldn’t trust them. Jag let Bowie in on his true plan that Blue is the target not America.
8:07 p.m. – The relationship that Cirie and Matt had built earlier in the season was still going strong with Matt seeing Cirie as a mother figure in the house that he goes to about any and everything. In terms of the game, Matt and Jag were still trying to protect Cirie and Felicia for a little while longer in case their final four with them ends up being their best path forward. Jag was not letting Felicia in on his intentions to take Blue out because he didn’t trust that she’d keep it secret, but he did tell Cirie the plan because of Matt’s trust in her. That Jag was sharing his plan with her made Cirie feel good on one hand, but on the other it concerned her that he was willing to evict one of his best friends in the house.
8:18 p.m. – To select players to compete for the Power of Veto, Jag picked out the chip for Matt, America picked out the chip for Felicia, and Blue picked out the chip for Bowie. That left Cirie out of the comp in the final draw, meaning she never got picked to play for the Veto. Knowing that Blue is Jag’s true target, but wanting her to stay in the house, Cirie was walking a fine line between getting her to not trust Jag without explicitly telling her that she’s the target. She knew that if she told Blue then Blue would flip out and blow up Cirie’s game to Jag.
8:26 p.m. – Cirie was less shy about discussing the week with Felicia, mentioning to her that it makes no sense why Blue is on the block and that it’s possible they might want her out instead. Cirie knew that Felicia was putting all of “her eggs in Jag’s basket” and so this was her way of showing Felicia that Jag has been lying to her all week. Felicia took it a different way though — she was upset that Cirie was putting thoughts in Blue’s ear in that she might be in danger when they should be feeling secure with Jag and Matt. The first chance Felicia got she went to Jag to inform him of Cirie’s whispers and paranoia. The revelation was a lightbulb for Jag who now knew that he may not be able to trust Cirie as much as he was.
8:36 p.m. – For the Veto comp, all of the players competed in private, having to arrange a series of photos in chronological order using clues within the Humili-Cruise themed images.
8:50 p.m. – After all the competitors finished, Cirie read the top three finishing times to reveal the winner. In third place was Bowie with 10:36. In second place was Blue with 8:00. And in first place and the winner of the Veto was Jag with 6:22.
8:52 p.m. – With the Veto in his hands, Jag’s next move was to loop Matt in to Cirie’s loose lips in letting Blue know that she’s the target. Jag was worried that Cirie is trying to build trust with Blue in order to go after them and even if Matt is close to Cirie it’s good for them to know that they might not be able to fully trust her.
8:57 p.m. – At the Veto Meeting, Jag revealed his decision to keep nominations the same, leaving both America and Blue on the block for eviction. In the Diary Room, he revealed that he considered putting Cirie up, but it’s more important for him to get out comp threats and so Blue has to go this week. Jag’s plan to take Blue out was exactly what America and Cirie were hoping he’d follow through with because neither of them want to keep him safe next week and are prepared to take a shot at him the second they get a chance.
