With Keisha Knight Pulliam headed home to feed her baby, frontrunner Shannon Elizabeth felt confident that her alliance would be able to send home Omarosa.
However, the rest of the house (with the exception of James Maslow) was gunning for the American Pie alum.
We’re in Day 9 of Celebrity Big Brother, and it already feels like we’ve been here for weeks. The drama has been as advertised, but the game play is only now starting to heat up.
And the HOH battle this week was crucial if anybody had sights on the ice queen, as Brandi Glanville calls Elizabeth.
The game was golf (putt putt with a giant fan to throw them off) and as the house guests took to the links, the hope was that anybody but Elizabeth or Maslow would win. The former was able to displace Glanville from the top of the leaderboard quickly.
And then house guest after house guest failed to keep up — until Ariadna Gutierrez bested Elizabeth by more than a minute on her quest to get three holes in one. It spawned a celebration that rightfully drew concern from the frontrunner.
McGrath threw the competition, and Maslow nearly knocked her out of the top spot. But in the end, the 2-second former Miss Universe won the third Head of Household competition and is the fourth HOH overall.
Immediately, Shannon suggests to James that they work to convince Ariadna that she should nominate Omarosa and Metta World Peace. However, Elizabeth is unable to get access to Gutierrez in her HOH because they brilliant place Metta in there as a buffer and a barrier.
Nobody wants Shannon to have access to Ariadna so that she could talk her into anything. Brandi, Ross Mathews and Marissa Jaret Winokur make sure of that.
And as expected, Ariadna puts up James and Shannon for eviction. Live Power of Veto and eviction happens Friday night on CBS.
We’ll see what comes of this power move, but props to the beauty queen. She’s showing some moxie.
