Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of each of these Week 2 frontrunners:

Calling ‘Big Brother’ fans: Win prizes by predicting Season 16

1. Christine (15/2 odds to win)

PROS: Christine has the benefit of being in two successful alliances and has so far managed to keep each one secret from the other. While her heart might be with the Christine/Nicole/Hayden alliance, her head is with the Bomb Squad and we can’t wait to see which of these two groups she’ll side with in the end.

CONS: When it comes down to the final eight, if all Bomb Squad members are still standing it’s very likely that Christine will be the first to go. In other words, she’s possibly eighth place in that eight-person dominating alliance.

2. Nicole (17/2 odds to win)

PROS: Yeah, she was nominated for eviction this week by Amber Borzotra, but she was able to save herself after winning Battle of the Block. Nicole is extremely likeable in the house and she’s also not a physical threat, so she doesn’t have a target on her back… yet.

CONS: Despite being in a secret three-person alliance with Christine and Hayden, Nicole is seen by the others in the house as being a floater. Ironically, if they all knew the truth she would likely still be nominated for daring to be in a competing alliance.

3. Hayden (10/1 odds to win)

PROS: A spoiler in third place, Hayden Voss gained some major points in Week 2 when he joined the Christine/Nicole alliance as their muscle. He was also briefly nominated for eviction with Nicole, but was able to win the Battle of the Block competition and pull himself off the block.

CONS: As one of the only men in the house (besides Donny Thompson) to not be a member of the Bomb Squad, Hayden has his work cut out for him. There’s a good chance he could be nominated every week from here on out, which means he’ll need to win Head of Household or the Veto to stay safe.
