Now that Big Brother 12
is in the final 4, the Power of Veto
competition is the most important one. HoH only ensures you safety, but
PoV keeps you safe, let's you pick the nominees and let's you pick who
SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 12 spoilers.
Hayden is the HoH and he nominated Lane and Britney.Hayden won the Power of Veto.
It seems the competition was about evicted HGs in previous challenges. The win solidifies two things. First, the nominations will stay the same and Britney will be evicted, leading to a dull Brigade final 3. Second, there's no way Lane or Enzo would bring Hayden to the finale.
With three HoH wins and now a Power of Veto victory, Hayden is proving that he's in it to win it, playing hard now that winning actually matters. Combined with the fact that he's already taking credit for getting Britney to backdoor Matt and you have your winner.
It also means that, despite the show getting its best ratings yet, I suspect the final few episodes will have a sharp decrease due to lack of interest in the outcome. Just like when Dick and Danielle were the final two, having the Brigade in the finale means that it doesn't really matter who wins.
Sure, Hayden deserves to win a little more, but all three members have the exact same argument for why they should win. They were all in the Brigade and so the number of competitions is the only real difference. Since Lane has one HoH and Enzo has one PoV, there's no way either could catch Hayden for number of wins.
Normally I would say that Hayden would be smart to turn on the Brigade and get Enzo out, but it truly doesn't matter. Hayden will win against anyone in the house and the only way for him to make the finale is to win the final HoH. This week's eviction couldn't matter less to him, except for the fact that beating Enzo and Lane is probably a little easier than beating Britney and Lane.
On the bright side, there's been talk about finally exposing the Brigade to Britney, so Saturday night's Big Brother: After Dark
could feature the revelation.See What Happened When the Brigade Came Out>>(Image courtsy of CBS)
