Today was the veto meeting. Alyssa was clearly planning on using the veto to take herself off the block, meaning that the Cookout would then expect Tiffany to nominate Claire as a replacement.
Tiffany doesn’t want to lose Claire so she came up with a plan this morning. She tried to convince Alyssa to use the veto on Xavier! Tiffany tried to convince Alyssa that, if she used the veto on Xavier, Alyssa would be some sort of hero in the House and that everyone would want to work with her. Of course, Tiffany’s real plan was for Alyssa to stay on the block and get voted out on Thursday.
Alyssa didn’t go for that plan, of course. And Xavier is furious about it because, to him, it shows that Tiffany is more interested in playing for herself than for playing for the Cookout. Of course, the same could be said about Xavier but Xavier will never win points for self-awareness.
Anyway, at the veto meeting, Alyssa used the veto on herself and Tiffany nominated Claire as a replacement. Tiffany is now going to lose her biggest ally in the House. If she had nominated either Derek F. or Kyland, the women would have a majority in the House after the eviction vote and, even if he did say, Xavier would be weakened. Instead, Tiffany is basically setting herself up to be voted out as soon as one of the men wins HoH.
The thing is, I think everyone in the House realizes that it would be foolish to go to the final two with Xavier. And this vote would be a perfect opportunity to get rid of him. But the men aren’t going to vote to evict Xavier because they want him to take out TIffany. And even if Azah and Hannah voted to evict Xavier, they would still have to convince Alyssa to vote with them and there’s not much chance of that happening.
So, as of right now, it looks like Claire will be going to jury on Thursday, the first victim of the double eviction.
