Last week, Big Brother 15 tied the record for the most number of times the Power of Veto was used in a single season with 10. Did this week set a new record?

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 15 spoilers.

McCrae won the Power of Veto. He saved himself and Judd is the replacement nominee.

At the ceremony, it sounds like Judd went off on McCrae, though that was part of a plan to make Andy and Spencer think McCrae will hate Judd, thus convincing them that they should keep him over GinaMarie. McCrae was in on the plan, but it doesn't seem to matter much as Andy and Spencer plan on getting rid of Judd and saving GM (though that isn't as firm as it usually is).

There are serious pros and cons to keeping or evicting Judd or GM, making this a tough choice. But in the end, I believe Judd will be evicted for a second time simply because GM is easier to beat in every conceivable way, especially if the final competitions involve questions.


-McCrae has now avoided nomination three times in a row thanks to the Power of Veto, an impressive feat as he now heads into the Final 4 without ever being eligible for eviction.

-McCrae is the 11th person to win three Power of Veto competitions in a single season, but only the sixth person to actually USE the Power of Veto at least three times.

-McCrae is only the fifth person to be saved with the Power of Veto three times in a single season. The others are season 4 runner-up Alison Irwin, season 6's James Rhine, season 7's Janelle Pierzina (who was saved four times) and season 8's Jen Johnson.

-This is the 11th time the Power of Veto has been used this season, setting a new record. This is the eighth time that one of the nominees has won it, which is one away from the record set in season 7.
