On Big Brother 20, Faysal and Haleigh’s relationship begins to crumble as they both battle to win the PoV.

Angela is definitely emerging as the villain of Big Brother 20. She’s not just playing the game, she’s nasty about it, even admitting she’s “evil.” According to Tyler, Level Six is just steamrolling through the house.

Faysal is blindsided again, but he wouldn’t have been if he had heeded Haleigh’s warnings. They may agree that it sucks to be on the block together, but each one of the power couple believes they’re the target. Angela wants Fessy out because he’s proven he can win comps. That’s about all he can do because as a strategic player, he sucks.

The last three weeks have been a disaster for Haleigh and Fessy. Even though Haleigh was the Hacker, and then they won HoH back to back, they’ve managed to accomplish nothing except watch their own alliance members walk out the door. Their only hope is to win the veto.

JC and Level Six don’t want Sam to play in the veto comp because she’s a wild card. Sam also has a sweet spot for Fessy and could pull him down. This would be bad news for JC.

Angela, Kaycee, Haleigh, JC, Faysal and Sam (chosen by Haleigh) are picked to participate in the veto competition.

Haleigh talks to Angela who tells Haleigh her best shot of staying is to be on the block with Fessy. Haleigh’s relieved to find out Faysal is the target, but the only way to guarantee her safety is to get the veto.

Faysal goes to work on JC who doesn’t want to go against the house. Fessy warns JC he’s better off keeping him because JC is low man on totem pole. JC definitely will leave the house before Kaycee, Angela or Tyler.

This veto comp, “Mission to Planet Veto,” is an individual one. Each player goes to the backyard. Their “mission” is to collect as much “vetonium” as possible for their spaceships which are headed to the planet “Veto.” They have to battle alien creatures who will fire the vetonium (green balls). They need to catch a ball before it hits the ground and place it in their container. The player with the most balls recovered wins the Golden Power of Veto.

This turns out to be much more difficult than it sounds because along with shooting out the vetonium, the space creatures expel slime as well, making it hard to see. There are three rounds, and the vetonium is worth more points each round. In the final round, the players have to catch the balls in their mouths. This comp is tailor-made for Kaycee and Faysal who both play football.

Kaycee scores 33 points, just one point more than Faysal and wins the PoV. Haleigh knows her only hope is to start hanging out with the other side of the house.

Faysal gets upset when Haleigh ditches him. He knows they only have a limited amount of time left together, and Haleigh blows him off.

This causes an argument between the twosome. Faysal wonders what this means after the game. Brett decides to lend Haleigh his shoulder to cry on. He wants to know whether or not Haleigh and Faysal are in a showmance, and she swears they aren’t.

Haleigh has been loyal to Faysal throughout the game, even when she hasn’t agreed with his decisions. But since he’s icing her out, Haleigh decides she needs to look out for herself. She’s going to do whatever it takes to stay as long as possible. The game means everything to her.

At the Veto Meeting on Big Brother, Kaycee chooses not to use the PoV.

Haleigh is down. Everyone she gets close to gets evicted. Faysal hopes he’ll at least walk away with a girlfriend.

Tyler’s Power App has expired, so he has to be cautious since things will get tricky going forward.
