Karen: I feel like we’re getting left out, Caleb.
Caleb: Oh, now you’re talking to me?
Karen: We don’t have to like each other, but you’re in no position to turn down a possible ally.
Caleb: What are you talking about?
Karen: Young ones are sticking together. It’s pretty obvious. I know you’re spending a lot of your time doing absolutely nothing, but I’ve been very careful and I’ve noticed a few interesting things.
Caleb: Like what?
Karen: Well, Charley seems to have a thing for Zach. But Zach likes Stephanie. I’m not sure how Steph feels. It looks like she just likes him as a friend. On the other side of the house you have the guys who do nothing but work out – Dane, Felix and Robert. And then there’s Selena and Kyra who spend a lot of time together. We’re the only ones without a true alliance.
Caleb: I don’t want to be in an alliance with you, woman.
Karen: Oh, and I’m just begging to be in one with you. *laughs* Old fart. But hey, you don’t get what you want in life either. If you want to stay in this game we might just need to work together. And to be honest, it’s kind of great that we dislike each other. No one would suspect us working together.
Caleb: Are you really suggesting this?
Karen: Yeah, why not. Let young ones evict each other while we stand on the sidelines watching and then when it’s time to strike, no one will see it coming.
Caleb: But I have no reason to trust you.
Karen: I just told you all I’ve noticed about other players. I came to you. What reason would I have to come to you if I’m not serious about this. You moron.
Caleb: You just called me an old fart and a moron.
Karen: Because you are just that. Again, that has nothing to do with the fact that I’m willing to work with you.
Caleb: Fine. I believe you.
Karen: So, we’re on?
Caleb: I think it’s time for me to do what I came in here to do and that is to play this game. Yes, let’s do it, gorgeous.
Karen: Oh, god damn, Caleb, I wasn’t flirting with you. If I wanted a floppy lover, I’d stay with my last husband. This is strictly business. That’s it.
Caleb: Oh, okay, woman. I had to try my luck.
Karen: Great! Now, let’s try to work with other people too to find out what’s going on this week and then we’ll compare notes. I’ll try speaking with the girls, you try to get on guys’ good side. I know that you haven’t been a proper man for a while, but try to remember.
Caleb: Keep talking like that to me and…
Karen: Oh, Caleb, stop making me laugh. Your threats are empty and you know it! *laughs*
Selena: It’s time to announce the players of the second Power of Veto competition! As all of you know, only six of us can compete – me as the current HoH, two Nominees and three HouseGuests chosen at random. They’ve just let me know in the Diary Room that the three HouseGuests chosen at random are…
Selena: …Kyra, Felix and Karen. The game will be played tomorrow in the Competition Arena.
Karen: Me again?! I don’t know if I’m lucky or unlucky! *laughs* But what do I do if I win it? I would probably need to save Caleb as I do want him in now and I need to show him that I’m really willing to work with him. However, that could also expose our alliance. This is really not a good position to be in.
Selena: Two people from my alliance got chosen. That’s amazing! I love it! *laughs*
Dane: Welcome to the Power of Veto Competition! This will be somewhat of an endurance competition and there are just a few rules. You will have to keep taking the Big Brother’s famous cold shower for at least fifteen minutes. However, the winner will not be a person who stays in the shower the longest as you are all required to stay in there for fifteen minutes to qualify for the Veto. The winner will be the person with the most points.
Dane: How to win points you might ask? Well, by pressing your buzzer every minute. If you are closest to the minute mark you get a point. If you get over the minute mark, your buzz will be counted for the next minute mark and you won’t be able to press it again for that round. I will announce it if someone went over so you’d know not to press again until I announce the winner of the next point. If none of you can stay in your shower for the required fifteen minutes, we will not have a Power of Veto winner this week.
Selena: What?! There is a possibility that there will be no winner? That’s mental. Gosh, I hope it’s not as freezing as Zach made it sound, I can’t stand cold but I can’t let someone else win this Veto. It’s too crucial.
Dane: Selena gets the first point. Caleb and Felix, you went over.
Dane: Charley gets the point. No one went over.
Dane: Karen gets the point this time. Felix, you went over.
Felix: This is really not my game, is it?
Dane: And Caleb steps out. You have therefore been disqualified, Caleb.
Caleb: I know, I know.
Zach: What? He’s nominated, he should have gotten used to the cold showers by now. If it were me playing, I’d probably win. *laughs* I have been taking cold showers for way too long. Fifteen minutes is nothing. *laughs*
Dane: We’re eight minutes in and Felix just stepped out.
Felix: I went over three times, there was no way I could have won so why torture myself. Selena is in the lead anyway so I should be safe this week. I don’t trust her but she’s not stupid enough to put me up just yet.
Dane: We’re in the final minute and we have a three way tie! Karen, Charley and Selena, whoever gets this one right wins…
Dane: It’s official! Selena, you are the winner of the Power of Veto!
Selena: *yells* This was sooo hard! But I had to pull through for my alliance. Karen is the one who shocked me the most. Woman stood under that cold shower for fifteen minutes while Caleb and Felix decided to leave before the fifteen minute mark. I have mad respect for the lady!
Selena: We are gathered here for the Power of Veto Ceremony. I, as the winner have the power to veto one of my own nominations. However, I am pretty happy with my nominations so I’ve decided not to use the Power of Veto.
Producer’s voice: Charley, you, as the holder of Big Brother’s special power can now decide if you want to use it or not. Please stand if you want to use the power you’ve been given.
Charley: I do want to use my power. It is called the Diamond Power of Veto and it lets me save one Nominee, myself. However, it also lets me choose the replacement nominee.
Felix: No way?!
Charley: I have decided to nominate…
Charley: I think it’s time to make sure one guy leaves. Felix, please, take a sit next to Caleb.
Felix: You must be f*cking kidding me?
Felix: What the actual f*ck just happened?! I left that competition sure I was safe. Whaaaaat happened?! This is unfair!
Charley: This felt so good. The look on his face was priceless! Selena and Kyra approached me today and they’ve told me they’d keep me safe… and Steph agreed to that apparently too but I don’t fully trust Steph. For obvious reasons. Selena, Kyra and I talked a bit on who we wanted out and they’ve told me all the things Felix said about me. That moron is leaving the house of Friday because of that!
Selena: I thought it couldn’t harm us if Kyra and I went along with Steph’s little plan. However, I also wanted to mention to Charley a few of the things Felix never said. *laughs* That way, if her power ended up being something useful, she’d have him in mind. I can’t help it, I feel like he is able to ruin my game and I want to strike first. But this way, Kyra and I didn’t need to get our hands dirty. *laughs* This ended up working perfectly in our favor! I’m so happy!
Zach: Woah! What a twist this was! It’s a good thing I am on Charley’s good side. *laughs*
