I was a little confused when we had nominations so early in the episode. I had to double-check the time.On travel and won't be able to watch tonight... But standing up the thread for anyone who has had the chance to watch and comment!
I initially agreed with you about SB, and initially her explanation made sense (wanting to burn it so it can't be used in the future). But, she had to know that at least the nominees would go for it. So it wasn't going to be around.I was a little confused when we had nominations so early in the episode. I had to double-check the time.
I was a little surprised who got the most BB Bucks. I didn't think that Britini was that popular (she annoys me).
I think SB was dumb to play for the 2nd veto. With her +1 as HOH there was very little chance she is/was going on the block. She should have saved here money.
Having someone potentially be betting on you to win POV may change your strategy a little bit. What if Claire bets on Ky to win POV. Usually the HOH wants to win POV to keep the noms the same. But, if Ky were to win POV, Claire would also win a Veto and take herself off. So, does Ky not try and win the POV? I think for the bettors, the best choice is to pick someone who you don't think will take you off the block.
It's the "entitled" world.What world do these people live in where "winning" means people throwing comps and gifting them wins???
I think they will have to make their pick in public. That adds an additional twist to the POV competition. Like I said, if Claire picks Ky to win (not a bad choice), normally Ky would play hard to win the veto and keep his noms the same (or bd someone). But, he would also be handing Claire a veto as well. Maybe he woudl rather throw the POV to an ally that will keep the noms the same.I think somehow it will be a secret bet... Otherwise, there's too great a chance for manipulating your performance based on who bet on you... And if I were the producers, I would probably have them pick their top picks based on their placement...
In other words, first place would only have to choose 1 secret bet... 2nd place would have to place 2 prioritized bets... Etc, etc, etc... I think it is the only fair way to execute on this and not encourage the players to manipulate their game play to suit their strategy... IDK...maybe the producers actually don't care if players manipulate their performance...this isn't sports competition IRL...it's BB for heaven's sake...the goal is viewership, not fair play...
