Well, this is going to be a quick post but I still think that a lot of you will be happy when you read it.
They held the POV ceremony earlier today. Donny kept his promise. He used the veto on Jocasta, taking her off the block. Derrick, in turn, kept his promise as well. He nominated Devin in her place.
Now, I have to admit that I would have a hard time choosing between Devin and Caleb. Yes, Devin is annoying but he’s also so hated that it’s pretty much guaranteed that he would never end up winning the game. If he made it to Final Two, it’s hard to think of anyone who couldn’t beat him. Add to that, keeping Devin around will always mean that there will be a big target in the house.
Caleb, on the other hand, could still conceivably win in the final two. If I was in the house, I would be really tempted to go ahead and get rid of Caleb while I can.
However, as of right now, it looks like Devin is definitely going to go home. Derrick has told everyone that Devin is his target and — unlike Devin during his HoH — Derrick hasn’t alienated everyone in the house. As of right now, Derrick believes that the vote to evict Devin will be unanimous. It’ll be interesting to see how Devin handles all of this. Earlier this week, he was saying that he was fine with getting voted out but everyone always says that and nobody actually means it. I’m expecting that we’ll hear a lot about Devin’s daughter over the next few days.
But anyway, Derrick is our first truly successful HoH of the season. (Devin failed to get rid of his target and Caleb had to switch targets after Donny won the veto.) He’s also proven everyone (like me) who doubted him wrong. Unfortunately, by being such an effective HoH, Derrick has probably increased the target on his back but, as of right now, I think Derrick has to be considered one of the season’s early front runners.
Okay, gotta run so talk to everyone later,
