After twenty three days, Cody Nickson, the 32 year old construction sales rep from Plano, TX became the second houseguest evicted from the Big Brother house. After being in a position of power last week, Cody’s game was completely turned upside down. During the live eviction, his alliance went against their original plan and sent the unintended target, Jillian home. To make matters even worse, Cody’s arch nemesis, Paul, became the newest HoH. As the week progressed, it came to no surprise that Cody found himself sitting on the chopping block, and eventually evicted during the live vote. You can find out how it all went down below.
Head of Household
Following the live eviction, we are introduced to the Sugar Shot Head of Household competition. During this challenge, candies are dropped from the sky with tickets inside. Once collected, houseguests are allowed to exchange tickets, and take up to three shots at one time. The first houseguest to land a ball in the center heart wins Head of Household for the week. Paul, the 24 year old clothing designer wins this challenge.
Den of Temptation
As you know, America has been voting all week to tempt a new houseguest inside the den of temptation. The houseguest that accepts their temptation will unleash a consequence on the house. Christmas, the 35 year old fitness superstar was offered the Ring of Replacement, which grants her the power to replace a randomly drawn player in any veto competition this season. Of course, she accepts! In order to release the power though, Christmas selected Cody, Jessica, and Jason to be cursed for the week.
Since the beginning of the week, Paul has made it known who his targets are, Cody and Jessica. With that being said, he plans on backdooring Cody, using two pawns in ths process. Paul eventually convinces both Alex and Josh to go up on the block together. During the nomination ceremony, Paul follows through with his plan and nominates Alex and Josh for eviction.
Oh, and let’s not forget about Ramses. Remember, last week, he randomly received the nomination curse. He decided to use the curse this week, and became the third nominee.
Power of Veto Competition
Paul, Alex, Josh, Ramses, Elena, and Matt participated in the Path of Least Resistance Power of Veto competition. According to wikipedia, “In this competition, houseguests competed individually. They must go through a series of rooms and answer questions based on what they have seen throughout the previous rooms. If they answer a question correctly, they may walk through a quicker path. If they answer incorrectly, they must take a delayed path that contains a challenge that will slow them down. The houseguest to make it through all five areas in the fastest time will win the Power of Veto. Paul was the winner.”
Power of Veto Ceremony
With complete power, Paul has every intention to carry out his plan. As expected, he used the Power of Veto on Josh, naming Cody as the replacement nominee.
Worried about Jessica’s position in the game, Cody decided to throw some of his former alliance members, Mark and Dominique, under the bus. Adding more fuel to the fire, Cody continued to stir the pot during Dominique’s talk show. Not only did this incident expose the old alliance to the house, it brought some attention to Dominique. At the live eviction, Cody was evicted in a seven to three vote.
