Big Brother 24 has been full of surprises this season, from Paloma Aguilar’s sudden self-eviction to the house flipping on Joe “Pooch” Pucciarelli and Ameerah Jones, and now another epic blindside is in the works. When Thursday’s episode ended, the houseguests had begun to battle it out during the Head of Household (HOH) competition. Monte Taylor won this competition, so the Leftovers alliance will continue to dominate the game. The seven-person Leftovers alliance consists of players who came together when they felt excluded from other groups in house. Its members are Monte, Matt “Turner” Turner, Michael Bruner, Brittany Hoopes, Joseph Abdin, Kyle Capener, and Taylor Hale.
Because Monte is safe, his Big Brother Festie Bestie partners Joseph and Terrance Higgins are also safe for the week. Monte made the decision to nominate Alyssa Snider and Indy Santos for eviction, figuring that he could have the option to backdoor either Nicole Layog or Daniel Durston if he wanted to. No matter what, someone outside of the Leftovers alliance would go home.
According to GlobalTV, the live feeds revealed that Daniel and his Festie Bestie partner, Kyle, won the Power of Veto competition making them safe from eviction. Daniel believes that the entire house is finally on board with evicting Taylor, who was targeted in weeks one and two. After Daniel blew up at Taylor during a misunderstanding between Taylor and Nicole, he assumed that Taylor would go home in week three. However, Turner decided that Taylor had been bullied enough, and he formed the Leftovers alliance with the others in order to turn the tables on the others. They shocked Ameerah by evicting her, and now they might be about to pull off one of the greatest blindsides in the show’s history.
If Daniel uses the Big Brother Power of Veto to remove Alyssa and Indy from the Chopping Block, Monte will replace them with Taylor and Nicole, which is what Daniel hopes he will do because he wants Taylor backdoored. However, the Leftovers will not evict Taylor, but Daniel’s ally and Final 2 partner, Nicole. Taylor pretended she was heartbroken after the competition, but when she entered the HOH room, she danced with joy as Monte smiled and said, “This is very, very poetic.” Monte and Taylor discussed the plan, and he made sure that she was okay with going on the block as a pawn. Taylor pretended to cry and then laughed about the plan. Monte told Taylor that he wants Nicole out of the house because she told him that if she won HOH next week, she would put up Monte, Joseph, and Terrance as pawns in order to evict Brittany or Michael. Joseph then entered the room and they all laughed as they realized that Daniel was about to make a move that would take out his biggest ally in the game. Then Kyle, who is Daniel’s Festie Bestie partner, asked what he should do next. Monte told him to stick to the plan, and convince Daniel that they are using the veto in order to backdoor Taylor.
If this plan works, it will be one of the greatest blindsides in Big Brother history. After the way that Daniel and Nicole treated Taylor, this backdoor plan would prove to everyone that actions have consequences in the house. Seeing Daniel help to evict his number one ally Nicole would be poetic justice after the way he treated Taylor. Even if Daniel figures out the plan ahead of time and he and Kyle do not use the veto, the Leftovers will still be safe and can choose between Alyssa and Indy for eviction. The Leftovers have all of the power this week no matter what Daniel decides to do with the veto.
