'Big Brother 11' Spoilers: Week 8 Nominations

We've reached the point in Big Brother 11 where HoH and nominations are far less important than the Power of Veto.  There's a 40 percent chance one of the two people nominated will win and use the PoV on themselves.  And it's also possible that whoever wins it may want to use it, because they'd be safe anyway.

With an HoH competition that went past the live show, all your spoilers can be found below.

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains results from this week's Big Brother 11 HoH competition and nomination ceremony.

As you know, Kevin defied the odds and actually won the HoH competition.

Kevin nominated Jeff and Michele.

Here's why this is an idiotic move: It allows for the possibility that both Jeff and Jordan can be safe.

Since the PoV is so important, there are realistically only three possible outcomes for Thursday.

Scenario 1: Kevin, Natalie or Michele Win PoV
In this situation, the nominations either stay the same, or Michele comes off and Jordan goes up.  Either way, if Jeff really is the target (as he should be), he will be evicted.

Scenario 2: Jeff Wins PoV

In this instance, he takes himself off the block and Kevin most likely puts Jordan up in his place.  Obviously Jeff would vote to keep Jordan, but perhaps Natalie would see Michele as the bigger threat and evict Michele as well, thus allowing Jeff and Jordan to continue their alliance into the final four.

Scenario 3: Jordan Wins PoV
This is the Doomsday Scenario, and the main reason not putting both Jeff and Jordan on the block was a terrible idea.  If Jordan wins, she can take her beau Jeff off the block and Kevin would be forced to nominate Natalie in his place.  Then Jeff and Jordan, together, could pick whichever woman they wanted out.

I realize the likelihood of Jordan winning the Power of Veto is very small, but Kevin is an idiot for even opening the door to that possibility.  If he'd nominated Jeff and Jordan, he could have an 80 percent guarantee Jeff goes home.  Now, it's just 60 percent.
