You really, really want Sam to use her power this week on ‘Big Brother 20’

To use or not to use? Sam has had the Bonus Life Power App in her back pocket since the first week of “Big Brother 20” and this is the last week she can use it before it’s automatically invoked next week. So should she use it Thursday on Winston or Brett? Fifty-five percent of our readers say yes.

The only time Sam has considered using the power, which would give the evicted house guest a chance to compete to return to the game, was during Week 1 when she was on the block, but it became clear that Steve was going to get the boot instead. She didn’t use it last week during the Swaggy C backdoor, but since this is the last time she can decide who she wants to use it on, she might not want to risk it being forcibly used on someone she or the house doesn’t want back.

Lots of stuff has also happened this week that could impact her ultimate decision. (Spoilers ahead)

Kaitlyn told Scottie that she was the flip vote for Steve because Sam had a power that would’ve put anyone who wanted to save Steve in jeopardy. That’s not true, but of course that led Scottie to discuss Sam’s power with others and now the whole house knows she has a power. However, except for Tyler and Kaycee, they all think Sam’s power expires this week. Sam has also told numerous people that she doesn’t plan on using it this week because she doesn’t want to go against her pal Scottie. She might feel differently if she knew that Scottie is fuming that she didn’t tell him about her power.

If Sam uses it on Thursday’s eviction, it would be great for drama, but 45 percent of our readers want her to save it for next week when she herself might be on the block. The forced use next week would give us a few jaws on the floor since so many of them think it’s out of play after this week. Not to mention, they’ll be shocked to hear what the power actually does.
