The focus of Wednesday night's Veto episode of "Big Brother" provided the most shocking game move yet, when Jason Roy went up as the replacement nominee after Clay Honeycutt removed himself from the block. But perhaps the biggest WTF moment came before that when, in a Diary Room entry during the Veto competition, the otherwise unassuming Steve Moses verbally attacked Becky Burgess. Will Steve's surprising comments impact who is evicted this week? Head over to the prediction center now to make your predictions for the chance to win a $100 Amazon gift card.
For devoted live feed watchers, episodes of "Big Brother" rarely provide surprising elements as most of the goings-on unfold on the feeds for them in real time. The one area where new information is gleaned, however, is in the cast's Diary Room entries and this week we got one way out of left field. During the Veto competition, as nominee Becky continued to fail at the game, Steve was shown narrating, "Becky drops her ball and I can see her entire demeanor — she is crushed! And seeing that misery in her is making me so freaking happy. I am loving just watching her crash."
Through five weeks of competition Steve has been the sweet, not-at-all-abrasive nerd of the house. In many ways, Steve has shown himself to lack the confidence that comes so easily to the other houseguests. In this same episode, Austin Matelson handily kicked Steve out of one of the rooms with one word: "Leave." Is Steve's secret tirade against Becky our first glimpse into a stronger, more devious player? Let's hope so!
It's possible that Steve's hatred of Becky might impact the game tonight, as she still sits on the nominee block, and he is apparently ready to send her packing. His entry continued, "It's that simple — and I'm sorry — and good luck back in Colorado."
While Steve may have promised his vote to Sixth Sense, presumably to evict Jason over Becky, it would seem that Steve may be ready to take the driver's seat in his own game and throw a wonky vote against Becky. With nine votes this week, Jason only needs five to stay. If Steve is one, and Meg, Jackie and James are others, then Sixth Sense may very well be in for a second blindside, but this time against them.

To vote for who you think will be eliminated next, drag your chosen contestant over from the left to the right. For example, if you think Becky will get the boot, make sure you put her in first place.
Every time someone logs their predictions, the racetrack odds of the contestants are automatically updated. If the majority of users think Becky will go home, that means she'll have the best odds and will go to the front of the pack. Conversely, the contestants who don't receive many predictions have the worst odds and will go to the bottom of the pile.
Remember that coming out on top doesn't just mean answering that week's questions correctly. You also have to use your three big bets (500 points and two of 200 points) strategically to score the most game points. If you bet on a longshot who pulls off an upset, you can really rack up the points, so don't take them for granted.
