Big Brother: Over the Top live feeds for the past few days have revealed a number of key events in the house that could change the game moving forward. Week 2 nominees for eviction have been revealed, America nominated one houseguest, and the Power of Veto (POV) competition was played and a winner was crowned.
Head of Household (HOH) Alex Willett made her final choices Sunday regarding which cast members to keep safe, during the last Safety Ceremony of week 2. According to Joker’s Updates, when all was said and done, Justin Duncan, Scott Dennis, Kryssie Ridolfi, Whitney Hogg, Shelby Stockton, Neeley Jackson, Monte Massongill, and Alex’s sister, Morgan Willett, were chosen to be safe for the week.
Jason Roy, the veteran Big Brother 17 player, was also safe, but he did not gain this semi-immunity from Alex. Instead, Jason was given the gift of safety by Kryssie, who was chosen by America to receive the Save-A-Friend Care Package. Kryssie has viewed Jason as a close ally in the game, which made the choice somewhat easy for her.
The Safety Ceremony and Kryssie’s move meant that showmance partners Shane Chapman and Danielle Lickey were the week 2 nominees for eviction.
On Monday morning at around 10 a.m. Big Brother: Over the Top house time, the week 2 America’s Nominee was revealed to the cast members. Houseguest anticipation was high prior to the reveal, as there had been a number of riffs and confrontations between cast mates over the days prior.
Shelby has been the center of a number of fights, Monte has said some things in the Big Brother: Over the Top house that has rubbed his fellow houseguests the wrong way, and Justin’s behavior at times has been seen by some in the game as crude and offensive.
According to Daily Hamsterwatch, Big Brother: Over the Top viewers who voted to nominate a houseguest determined they no longer care for Monte’s game, thus he was chosen as America’s Nominee.
Big Brother Network noted it was no surprise that Monte was nominated by the public, as he was at the top of the website’s poll regarding who America should put up for eviction at around 38 percent. The poll indicates Kryssie was a close second with approximately 37 percent, while Morgan was third, but only about 12 percent of pollsters thought she should be a Big Brother: Over the Top week 2 nominee.
Later in the day on October 10, the week 2 POV competition was held and involved a golf theme. According to Daily Hamsterwatch, Alex, Danielle, Shane, Monte, Scott, and Shelby took part.
Jeff Schroeder, Big Brother veteran and online host of the regular season of Big Brother’s after shows, hosted the event.
Daily Hamsterwatch reports that each of the players took turns hitting gigantic golf balls into four different holes worth varying values. When they obtained a hole in one, cast members earned a ticket, which when accumulated would allow them to stop playing if they so desired, and choose a prize. Houseguests could also continue playing to accumulate even more tickets.
According to Daily Hamsterwatch, Shane was victorious and won the POV by gaining 60 tickets; Danielle garnered 40 tickets and the Water Hazard prize that meant she must fish balls out of the backyard pool for one week every time Big Brother sounds a signal; Alex won 30 and was given the Can’t See Straight disadvantage for the next HOH competition she is eligible to take part in; Scott gained 25 tickets and is Sand Trapped, as he must now sit for 24 hours straight in an actual Big Brother sand trap with food and water delivered to him by other houseguests; Shelby won 20 tickets and is tasked with wearing a caddy costume for a week, which includes carrying golf clubs; and Monte obtained zero tickets and must sit out during the next POV competition if he is not evicted this week and is still in the Big Brother: Over the Top house.
