This afternoon the first power of veto ceremony was held and shocker - it wasn't used. It was pretty obvious that Brendon and Rachel weren't going to use it - if for no other reason than they don't want to make any more enemies and they have pretty much asked for loyalty from everyone in the house.
I would have said its almost a lock that Keith was going home however after listening to Cassie, Lawon and Dominic chat in the Padded Have Not room this afternoon I think there is a chance he may stay. They feel that if they keep him in the house he will be the first target once the golden keys are gone. It will be an up and down week with the HGs not being forced to 'lock in' their votes until Thursday (thats right, the feeling among most of us is that it isn't really a live vote - the HGs have to TELL production how they are going to vote the day before).
The other item of note today was that Danielle suddenly realized that all the golden key holders were guarenteed to make it to the Jury House. There has been some question as to how that will work. People are doing the math as so... 14 people-4 key holders leaves 10 people - 2 finalists = 8 people but there are only 7 in the Jury - so how can everyone that gets a key make the jury? The answer is in the last week before Jury - that person needs no key because they are in. Here is the way it works.
Week 1 - Danielle - 1st Key - 13 HGs left
Week 1 - Keith/Porsche - 2nd Key - 12 HGs left
Week 2 - ?? - 3rd Key - 11 HGs left
Week 3 - ?? - 4th Key - 10 HGs left
Week 4 - ?? Evicted - the person left gets no key but thats ok - every week after the evictee is in the jury. 9 HGs left - 2 finalists and 7 Jury.
Make sense? If you already figured it out - sorry!
The TV show is on tonight in about 40 minutes for me. We'll see the Have Not competition that involves something with Milking Cows on the Moon - or at least cows and the moon are involved.
There will also be the first nomination ceremony shown. And maybe there will be hints to Dicks impending departure. Speaking of Dick he should be releasing a video statement sometime today, we'll let you know when its up.
After watching tonight's show, I am not sure the golden key winner is guaranteed the Jury. Julie said they were safe for the first four evictions. That may mean that the last eviction before the Jury forms will be a free-for-all where everyone is on their own and golden key winners are vulnerable. That almost makes more sense.
