Big Brother 25 is nearing its end, with only seven houseguests left in the game. In the previous episode, Jag Bains won his second consecutive Head of Household competition and nominated America Lopez (his pawn) and Blue Kim (his target) for eviction. However, the upcoming Power of Veto challenge could change everything, as it could save one of the nominees or open up a backdoor opportunity. Moreover, this week is also a double eviction week, which means that two houseguests will be sent to the jury by the end of the night. Who will win the Veto and who will be evicted? Here is a recap of what happened in episode 35 of Big Brother 25.
The Veto Competition
The Veto competition was called “Veto Vault”, and it required the players to crack a four-digit code by using clues hidden in different rooms of the house. The first player to enter the correct code and open the vault would win the Power of Veto. The players who competed were Jag, America, Blue, Bowie Jane, Felicia Cannon, and Cirie Fields.
The competition was intense, as all the players scrambled to find the clues and figure out the code. America and Blue were desperate to win the Veto and save themselves from the block, while Jag wanted to keep his nominations intact. Bowie, Felicia, and Cirie were also eager to win the Veto and secure their safety for the week.
After several minutes of searching and guessing, it was Felicia who managed to crack the code and open the vault. She won the Power of Veto and celebrated her victory. She was ecstatic to have some power in the game and to be safe from eviction.
The Veto Ceremony
At the Veto ceremony, Felicia had to decide whether to use the Veto or not. She knew that Jag wanted to evict Blue, but she also had a secret alliance with her called “The Bluebirds”. She was torn between staying loyal to her ally or respecting Jag’s wishes.
After much deliberation, Felicia decided to use the Veto on America. She said that she wanted to repay America for saving her with the Veto last week, and that she trusted her more than anyone else in the game. She also said that she hoped that Jag would respect her decision and not take it personally.
Jag was shocked and angry by Felicia’s move. He felt betrayed by her and thought that she was working with Blue behind his back. He had no choice but to name a replacement nominee, and he decided to put up Bowie as his new pawn. He said that he still wanted Blue out of the game, and that he hoped that everyone would vote accordingly.
The First Eviction
The first eviction of the night was between Blue and Bowie. Both of them gave their final pleas to stay in the game. Blue said that she loved everyone in the house and that she played an honest game. She also said that she respected Felicia’s decision and that she hoped that people would vote with their hearts. Bowie said that he was grateful for the experience and that he had fun in the game. He also said that he understood Jag’s move and that he hoped that people would vote with their heads.
The votes were then cast one by one in the Diary Room. Felicia voted to evict Bowie, while Matt Klotz, Cirie, and America voted to evict Blue. With a vote of 3-1, Blue became the ninth houseguest evicted from Big Brother 25. She hugged everyone goodbye and left the house.
In her exit interview with Julie Chen Moonves, Blue said that she was not surprised by her eviction and that she knew it was coming. She said that she was proud of her game and that she had no regrets. She also said that she was loyal to Jag until he betrayed her last week, and that she hoped that Felicia would win the game.
The Second HOH Competition
The second HOH competition of the night was called “Before or After”, and it tested the players’ memory of events that happened in the game. Julie asked a series of questions about whether one event happened before or after another event. The players had to answer by stepping on either “Before” or “After” on their platforms. A wrong answer would eliminate a player from the competition. The last player standing would become the new HOH.
The competition was quick and brutal, as one by one, the players were eliminated by answering incorrectly. After only four questions, Matt emerged as the winner and became the new HOH. He celebrated his victory and prepared to make his nominations.
The Second Nominations
Matt had only a few minutes to decide whom to nominate for eviction. He knew that he wanted to target Cirie, who he considered a strategic threat and a flip-flopper. He also knew that he wanted to keep Jag, Felicia, and America safe, as they were his allies. He decided to nominate Cirie and Bowie for eviction, saying that they were both strong players and that he respected their games.
The Second Veto Competition
The second Veto competition of the night was called “BB Comics”, and it required the players to memorize a series of comic book covers featuring the houseguests as superheroes or villains. The players had to zip-line across a window and look at the covers, then recreate them on a board by using different versions of the covers. The player who recreated the covers correctly in the fastest time would win the Power of Veto.
The players who competed were Matt, Cirie, Bowie, Jag, Felicia, and America. They all took their turns and tried their best to memorize and recreate the covers. Some of them struggled with the details and the order of the covers, while others breezed through the task.
The results were then revealed by Julie. America completed the competition in 18 minutes and 23 seconds, Felicia in 16 minutes and 12 seconds, Jag in 15 minutes and 9 seconds, Bowie in 14 minutes and 37 seconds, Cirie in 13 minutes and 51 seconds, and Matt in 12 minutes and 45 seconds. Matt won the Power of Veto and secured his power for the week.
The Second Veto Ceremony
At the second Veto ceremony, Matt had to decide whether to use the Veto or not. He knew that he wanted to evict Cirie, but he also had a backup plan in case she won the Veto. He decided not to use the Veto and keep his nominations the same. He said that he was happy with his choices and that he hoped that everyone would respect his decision.
The Second Eviction
The second eviction of the night was between Cirie and Bowie. Both of them gave their final pleas to stay in the game. Cirie said that she loved playing Big Brother and that she respected everyone’s game. She also said that she was not ready to go home and that she hoped that people would vote for who deserved to be in the final five. Bowie said that he was honored to be part of Big Brother and that he enjoyed every moment of it. He also said that he was loyal to his friends and that he hoped that people would vote for who they trusted more.
The votes were then cast one by one in the Diary Room. Felicia voted to evict Cirie, while Jag, America, and Bowie voted to evict Bowie. With a vote of 3-1, Bowie became the tenth houseguest evicted from Big Brother 25. He hugged everyone goodbye and left the house.
In his exit interview with Julie, Bowie said that he was surprised by his eviction and that he thought he had a chance to stay. He said that he was proud of his game and that he had fun in it. He also said that he was loyal to Matt until he betrayed him this week, and that he hoped that America would win the game.
