Big Brother 25 really heated up in week 6 when then-HOH Cameron Hardin turned the game on its head by nominating house ringleaders Felicia Cannon and Izzy Gleicher for the block. The main target for weeks, Cameron managed to pit the house against itself, finally taking the heat off of him. Showmance couple America Lopez and Cory Wurtenberger flipped the vote against an irate Izzy. So, new-HOH Jared Fields and his Survivor star mom Cirie Fields decided to go after the couple who betrayed their trust. Jared put Americory on the block. So, who wins the Power of Veto on Week 7 and who’s Jared’s replacement nominee if he Cory or America is off the block?

The Power of Veto competition took place on the middle of Saturday, September 15. The three houseguests guaranteed to play in the POV competition were Jared, America and Cory (HOH and nominees always play). On Saturday morning, Cory, Jared and America drew names of other houseguests. Jag Bains, Bowie Jane and Cameron all got selected to play in the Veto competition. It’s unclear if any of the three selected by draw were picked by houseguest choice. We’ll have to wait until Wednesday’s episode to find out those details.
In the end, Jag was the victor. So, did he take either America or Cory off the block? Some superfans watching the live feeds believed he’d take Cory off the block. However, at one point he was plotting with Matt to take out Cory. Jared as HOH already made it clear his intentions were for Cameron to get backdoored this week. After Monday’s veto ceremony, it was revealed Jag used the POV on Cory. Jared then put Cameron on the block as the replacement nominee. Cameron tried to use his deal with Jag about not putting him on the block this week to stop Jag from using the POV. However, the deal only stipulated Jag himself wouldn’t put up Cameron if he was the HOH.
Jag and Matt want Cory off the block b/c Cory is a far better ally for both of them than America. All she does is constantly run her mouth and can’t win comps. At least Cory had influence and can hold water. Not to mention, he’s better at mental comps. #BB25

Cam is already starting to campaign against Cory. I think he’s gonna try to offer Jag another safety deal if he uses the veto on America and leaves Cory on the block #bb25

America wanted Jag using the POV on her, not Cory, which caused friction in the their relationship. In the end, it almost certainly won’t matter. The entire house doesn’t like Cameron and he’s demonstrated he’s a comp beast, so houseguests will happily vote him out.
So far today Jags been pondering who to save with the PoV (He wants Cory / America to decide but will save America if they don't tell him otherwise). Cameron has been campaigning to various HGs as expected. Not quite as quiet as I thought it might be. #bb25 https://t.co/SzJzhdXbS4

America isn't happy that Cory isn't just laying down and letting Jag use veto on her. ?#BB25

America and Cameron are the houseguests up on the block Thursday. However, the Scaryverse double eviction means not just Cameron is going home this week.
Last week’s POV competition took a long time because there were several knockout rounds. Also, Josh Duhamel hosted the POV competition because he was promoting his new show Buddy Games. That meant the game took over three hours to complete. This week’s competition didn’t take nearly as long.
Cirie after the selection of competitors for the POV competition this week went to the HOH room to tell Jared she wanted him to sacrifice her for his game and put her up as the replacement nominee if Cameron won. Thankfully for all the fans of the four-time Survivor competitor she didn’t have to sacrifice her own game.
Jared: Cameron is definitely still target for me, no matter what. I think it's pretty obvious what else is gonna happen…Cameron is too much of a competitor to nominate him.
Cory: Is it me/America, Cam backdoor?
Jared: Mhmm. I'm just saying yeah, I don't know. #bb25 pic.twitter.com/0dQiMZ2jDi

The houseguests appeared to be tired and weak after facing a week of eating slop in the house (except Cameron). We’ll have to wait and see if this affected not just the HOH wall competition but also the POV gameplay.
