The fourth live eviction on “Celebrity Big Brother” is set for Monday (Feb. 19). At the end of the Feb. 16 episode, we saw the start of the competition that determined the Round 4 Head of Household. That person spent the next 36 hours figuring out what they hope to be a winning strategy to eliminate one of their remaining rivals and move closer to winning the $250,000 prize. Spoilers ahead.
Omarosa won the test of endurance that was “Courtside Seats” and became HoH for the first time in the competition. She outlasted the seven other houseguests who dropped by the wayside in this order: NBA all-star Metta World Peace, TV personality Ross Mathews (who had been the second HoH), singer Mark McGrath (who had been up for eviction in Round 3), actress Marissa Janet Winokur, “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Brandi Granville and singer James Maslow (who had used his Power of Veto in Round 3 to avoid elimination).
Omarosa has nominated Granville and Mathews for eviction, with her sights set firmly on the latter as the eventual ejectee. She is hoping to strike a deal with the other three men still in the house (Maslow, McGrath and Peace) to send Mathews packing.
Omarosa, who is a skillful game player, is well aware that Monday’s Power of Veto competition could change everything. It did just that last Friday when Maslow used it to put McGrath in his place in the eviction vote against Shannon Elizabeth.
The type of Power of Veto up for grabs on Monday will be decided by a public vote. The three choices are:
Diamond Veto: Winner can replace one nominee for eviction.
VIP Veto: Winner has the option to use the Veto once or twice or not at all in the same Veto Meeting. If the winner removes one of the nominees, they can also use it a second time on the replacement nominee.
Spotlight Veto: Winner must replace one nominee for eviction.
