We had to wait an agonizingly long time for the “Celebrity Big Brother” live feeds to return on Wednesday while the houseguest competed for the round 3 power of veto. During an event-filled episode of “CBB” that aired on Jan. 30, we had seen round 3 Head of Household Tom Green make his eviction nominations. Kandi Burruss and Joey Lawrence ended up on the chopping block.
We also got the big reveal as to which houseguest had won the game-changing Power of the Publicist. As we predicted Tamar Braxton claimed this power, which give her the right to remove herself as a nominee for eviction in the next two rounds. She can use this power whether she is one of the original nominees or a substitution at the power of veto ceremony. Spoiler ahead
This twist made the third round power of veto competition even more compelling. With CBS airing the Super Bowl on Sunday (sorry, no “CBB” that night), it wasn’t a surprise that this POV competition was a physical challenge. And it wasn’t a shock that the winner was one-time WWE wrestler Natalie Eva Marie.
But what will Natalie do with this newfound power? If she removes either Joey or Kandi from consideration for eviction, Tom will have to nominate another houseguest. And he is consumed by fear that he will mistakenly pick the person with the Power of the Publicist. We expect Natalie to let the nominations stand.
We’ll know what Natalie did sometime on Thursday when we see the POV ceremony. Until then, be sure to vote in our poll as to which of the two nominees you’d like to see evicted in the live episode on February 2. Or do you like them both so much that you want to see a substitution in the eviction nominations? And be sure to sound off in the comments section with your thoughts on “CBB” so far.
