Anew Head of Household, Xavier, was crowned in Thursday’s episode of “Big Brother.” Xavier is a member of the Kings team, who have been working closely with the Queens, which includes last weeks’ HOH, Kyland.
Kyland has had Brent and Whitney on his radar since the pair declined to promise him safety this week if either won HOH. So it’s no surprise that Xavier chose to put Brent on the block this week. Most of the house perceives the flight attendant as a threat. Xavier also nominated Britini, making her a pawn two weeks in a row.
So who played in the POV competition, who won, and will the Power of Veto be used this week? Read on to find out.

Who Played for the Veto?
As usual, the HOH (Xavier) and the two nominees (Brent and Britini) played in the veto competition. Three other houseguests selected by random draw also played: Christian, Derek F., and Whitney.
This was the first POV competition for Christian, Derek F., Whitney, Brent, and Xavier. Britini played last week as well.
Christian won the Power of Veto this week, marking the third week in a row where neither of the nominees will be able to take themselves off the block. This is also Christian’s second competition victory of the summer. He won the first Wildcard competition of the season.
This could make Christian a target going forward. However, he has also been building solid connections in addition to winning competitions. It seems likely that his teammates will fight to protect him.
Will the Veto Be Used This Week?
It seems unlikely that the veto will be used this week. Christian is on the same team as HOH Xavier and they are working together. Xavier’s target is Brent and Christian will likely keep nominations the same. This way, Brent goes home and Xavier doesn’t get any more blood on his hands.
If Brent goes home, the Kings will be the only remaining team with four players left. It will be interesting to see how the teams shift and change in the coming weeks.
Who Will Go Home on Thursday?
A lot could happen between now and Thursday’s live eviction. Brent has proven to be adaptable in the game thus far (he had a final two deal with Frenchie that didn’t last long) and could campaign for votes.
Britini has also not made any meaningful alliances with anyone in the house and is nominated for the second week in a row. It’s possible that Brent will be able to convince houseguests that if they work together moving forward, he’ll be an asset.
As things stand currently, the house is almost unanimously in favor of getting rid of Brent. Tune in for the live eviction on Thursday, July 29 at 8 PM ET.
