8:00: Here we go! Tonight’s episode will feature the famous OTEV Veto competition.
Tonight’s episode kicks off right after the nomination ceremony. In a Diary Room confessional, Daniel says he knows he is still a target even though he’s not on the block. He is aware he is a backdoor option, so he is planning to gun for the Veto.
Jasmine tells Alyssa they need to get Monte out sooner than later.
8:05:Daniel and Terrance are talking. Terrance reveals he wants to get Monte out. He tells Daniel to keep nominations the same if he wins the Veto. Terrance says he will throw the Veto to give Daniel a better chance of winning.
Here comes another Muffin Gate segment. Jasmine is on a mission to find out who ate her muffin. She is crawling around trying to spy on the houseguests to see if she can catch the muffin stealer.
She is unsuccessful. The muffin stealer (Turner) is still on the loose. Terrance spills the beans that he thinks Turner ate her muffin (he’s right).
Jasmine confronts Turner about the muffin stealing. She says “I think you should fess up Festie Bestie,” but Turner doesn’t budge.
8:10: Brittany, Michael, and Taylor are talking game. They admit Monte is a huge threat in the game. They discuss the possibility of shifting the target from Daniel to Monte. Michael says he isn’t 100 percent sold on targeting Daniel this week.
8:15: Taylor and Joseph are flirting. Taylor admits she is crushing on Joseph in a Diary Room confessional, revealing she “falls more and more everyday.” She even says she is in love with…oh, wait.

8:20: Daniel is feeling a little hopeless after not being picked to play in the Veto competition. In a DR confessional, Terrance reveals he plans to sabotage his team so they lose the Veto competition. Wow! He really wants Monte out of the house.
8:25: Time for OTEV! This season’s OTEV competition is western themed. The rules of OTEV are simple. OTEV will sing a song that references something that happened in the house this summer. The houseguests will then slide down a slippery ramp and search for the correct card. Then, they will run back up the ramp. The last houseguest to reach the top will be eliminated from the competition.
The houseguests will compete individually for the Veto but whoever wins will guarantee safety for both them and their Festie Bestie(s)
FIRST ROUND: The first card the houseguests have to search for is the Potty Talk competition. Let’s see how the houseguests perform.
Brittany is the first houseguest eliminated.

Let’s see how they do.
Jasmine is the second houseguest eliminated.
THIRD ROUND: The third card the houseguests have to search for is the HOH Pie Fest competition.
Turner is the third houseguest eliminated.

Michael confides in Turner about the other side of the house trying to convince him to keep noms the same.
