Brett won the power of veto, and that’s about all that happened in Big Brother Brother Season 20 Episode 25 because they didn’t even want to tell us what happened with the veto.
The completely unnecessary cliffhanger (though there is a lot of ground to cover with the fallout) we left off with was Scottie and Sam throwing Haleigh under the bus. They want her to be the replacement nominee. Never going to happen. Then again, most people thought Fessy was an idiot for nominating Scottie. Predictably, Fessy tells Haleigh, who takes it about far worse than can be expected, but she didn’t even need to hear that from him. A guilty Scottie is honest about what he’s doing. It’s a jerk move, but it’s the only thing he has left. He suggests she just let him go and distance herself from him because he knows it’s over.
He tells Fessy he better not put Haleigh on the block. Oh, and by the way, he does have a crush on her. Of course he does. Whether he has a chance, probably not, but that’s not what Fessy is thinking. Instead of the proposed Haleigh plan that he has since decided was stupid, he throws Sam under the bus. Ah, the other person who supported him and tried to make sure he didn’t go home. The sinking ship keeps taking cannon fire.
Brett saves himself.
Kaycee is the replacement nominee.
Tyler and Angela visit Faysal and Haleigh and play along with Fessy’s plan to form an alliance with them. Tyler now has an alliance with everybody in the house, other than the guy who is going home. He has little interest in winning HOH. Let somebody else get blood on their hands.
By a vote of 6-0, Scottie has been evicted from the Big Brother house. He tried remaining loyal to an absolutely awful alliance, most of whom never really trusted him, which he cemented with his final acts. Fessy’s HOH somehow took out one of his allies, but he’s not wrong. Even though he can’t trust anybody else either, he was correct that he couldn’t trust Scottie, and he had reason to be jealous. Jealousy is hardly a useful emotion in this game, though.
The HOH competition will require them to search ball pits for one with a token inside, then make a perfect shot or as close to it as they can get, trying to get the highest score and settling for what they have or opting to keep going. They will have an hour.
