On the way to the Veto episode of “Big Brother 24”, head of the family Mount Taylor had just named Alyssa Snider and Indiana “Indy” Santos for deportation. However, he publicly promised them that they were not his real targets. In fact, he wanted to get Nicole Layog out of the house, but since she was “Festie Besties” with Taylor Hale, who had already been on the block several times this season, he wanted to get Taylor’s blessing in order to put them in place if the veto power ended up being used. So how did it all happen?

20:00 – “Previously on ‘Big Brother’! In the 10th episode, players competed in “The Invitation” themed HOH competition, with Monte easily winning. Monte then contacted his fellow Leftovers alliance members (Kyle, Brittany, Michael, Turner, Taylor, and Joseph) and they decided that a non-Leftover should go home this week (duh), but which one? Alyssa and Indy have been put on the block, but in case the veto is used to save them, Monte aims to hijack Nicole and Taylor’s duo, with the plan to send Nicole out the door.
8:04 p.m. – Alyssa and Indy were Monte’s safe bet nominees in case the veto wasn’t used, but his Leftovers alliance knew the perfect target would be Nicole, not Alyssa. For that to happen, they would have to put Taylor back on the block as a pawn and find a way to keep Nicole safe. After Ameerah was blindsided last week, Nicole knew she couldn’t feel completely safe and saw herself as a possible backdoor.
8:06 p.m. – Feeling comfortable in The Leftovers, Michael wanted to build a smaller alliance with people he fully trusted. He approached Brittany and Taylor for a final deal that the two were on the line for. Michael’s angle was to go all the way with people who no one could tell were bigger threats than him in the game.
8:08 p.m. – In a conversation with Daniel, Monte hinted that Taylor was his target this week. As someone who’s been invested in getting Taylor out since day one, Daniel liked to hear she was the target, but he knew getting her out would require putting the best ally on the block again. Separately, Taylor, Michael, and Kyle devised a scenario in which Kyle and Daniel win the veto and put Daniel in a position to use the veto with the assurance that Taylor returns home, only to find on the night of the eviction that he helped his best friend. Nicole goes home.
8:14 p.m. – Another tricky situation happening this week is that Kyle is in an alliance that is actively working against his crush in the Alyssa household. From his point of view, he just lied to her last week when Ameerah was kicked out and they’re working together, but from his point of view, he’s still potentially okay with his true alliance by voting it out this week . Kyle also thinks she has a relationship at home outside of the game, but can’t resist his attraction to her and his desire to keep her home.
8:17 p.m. – During the Veto Selection, three sets of Festie Besties were selected to compete. The HOH and their Besties were in attendance, as were the two nominees. The final set was chosen by lottery – Kyle and Daniel! Monte clarified that whichever pair wins the veto, it only takes one of them making the decision to use the veto for it to be used – they don’t have to agree on the decision. .
8:19 p.m. – With their new three-way alliance, Brittany points out to Michael and Taylor that the best option for next week is for the Veto not to be used to get either Indy or Alyssa to go home and they can convince whoever remains to join the Brittany/Michael pair. His thought is that everyone in The Leftovers is paired with someone outside of the covenant, protecting them next week from returning home even if they are nominated. But that’s not the case with Brittany and Michael who, if nominated, would force the alliance to vote for one of their own. At this point in the week, it looked like The Leftovers were split on whether or not they should go after Nicole this week.
8:25 p.m. – The “Trippy Watch Party” Veto Competition was held at the “BB Motel” and forced the teams to split up, with one going on a “psychedelic” trip and returning to their tent to communicate to their partner what she had lived. In reality, they looked at a colorful cartoon image and had to remember specific aspects of it. Partners who didn’t make the trip had to listen to their partners’ cartoon story and then answer questions about it.
8:31 p.m. – Kyle and Indy both answered the first question correctly, while Monte got it wrong. They were all right on the second question. In a complete guess, Kyle also answered the third question correctly. Monte fell even further behind on the fourth question when Indy and Kyle both got it right. Kyle took the win with a correct answer to the last question. This put the power of veto in the hands of Kyle and Daniel, the two players in the most difficult situation this week.
8:40 p.m. – On the face of it, Kyle and Daniel were excited about their veto win, but they didn’t seem to be on the same page about it. Kyle told Alyssa that he would obviously use her to save her, but Daniel wanted them to leave the same names to keep Nicole safe. Still wanting to keep the names the same, Michael made it his mission to convince the rest of The Leftovers that they should go after Alyssa this week. In order for Monte to go along with the plan to keep Nicole, they had to lock Indy up to join the pair of Michael and Brittany and convince Kyle not to use the veto to save Alyssa.
8:43 p.m. – When the plan was presented to Kyle, he said that it was morally difficult to accept it because of his friendship with Alyssa. Joseph said he had to weigh his moral compass against Brittany and Michael’s safety. Kyle told them he had to think about it.
8:50 p.m. – With the new plan to vote against Alyssa, Monte had a conversation with Nicole and Daniel where he asked Daniel not to use the veto lest he was no longer sure that Nicole would be safe. Believing herself to be smarter than him, Nicole thought Monte was lying and was sure she had the numbers to stay. Daniel believed that Monte was actually coming back out of Taylor’s protection and so he decided he had to use the veto to screw Monte by getting Taylor to vote. Daniel went to Kyle with this information, a revelation that was music to Kyle’s ears that Daniel would be the one to get Alyssa off the block and that Kyle wouldn’t have to go against his covenant.
8:56 p.m. – At the Veto meeting, Daniel proudly declared the decision to use their power to remove Alyssa and Indy from the block. Although he changed his mind about it, Monte was forced to name Taylor and Nicole as replacements. Taylor played her part in looking disappointed and tired of being around the neighborhood again, Kyle was thrilled to get what he wanted without having to do it himself, Brittany was disappointed in the lack of isolation for her and Michael next week, and Nicole was cackling to herself thinking she was a willing pawn on the block to get Taylor voted out.
