Big Brother 23 — Week 9 Veto Update

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 5, 2021

Hi, everyone!

Sorry for the late update! I hope everyone’s having a good holiday weekend.

It briefly looked like things might get interesting yesterday when Alyssa won the veto. Xavier and Derek F. had been talking about throwing the veto comp and making sure that Alyssa won so that Tiffany would be forced to put Claire on the block. I’m not sure if Xavier went through with his plan or if Alyssa legitimately won that veto but the important thing is that Alyssa won it.

Alyssa now has the veto and she’s going to use it on herself. Last week, Tiffany was talking about how she doesn’t trust Xavier and it would make more sense to either blindside him or put up on one of his allies like Derek F. than to go after Claire. So, I thought that might happen this week.

Well, it’s not. Shortly after the veto comp, Tiffany had one of her private conversations with the cameras in which she explained that she hated to put Claire up but that’s what she was going to have to do. So, Claire is going up and will probably go home on Thursday and, unless Alyssa wins HoH or the veto during the double eviction, Alyssa will probably follow her out the door.

The Cookout is still extremely paranoid about having their alliance revealed because they think there’s a chance a juror will return to the House. So, they’ve all been working on Alyssa and trying to convince Alyssa that Claire would be the smart replacement nominee. (The fear is that Alyssa will realize there’s an alliance if Tiffany, out-of-nowhere, uses her closest alley as a replacement.) Xavier and Hannah have both been laying it on thick, telling Alyssa what a threat Claire is. I think they’re almost hoping that they’ll be able to convince Alyssa to go upstairs and beg Tiffany to target Claire. Alyssa’s not quite that dumb, though. She definitely seems to realize that there’s an alliance, even if she doesn’t realize that Xavier’s the one in charge of it.

The veto meeting is tomorrow!
