Former “Big Brother” season 15 house guest Nick Uhas released another fact-filled, action-packed Nickipedia on Aug. 27, 2014. His YouTube video is all about the reality show – specifically, statistics surrounding the coveted Power of Veto medallion.
The POV has historically been a game changer, as it can save a cast mate who has been nominated for eviction, or keep a Head of Household’s nominations intact. A triple dose of Nick also notes that only three house guests in “Big Brother” history have won three POVs in a row.
According to Nick, the POV did not even exist until season 3 of “Big Brother.” After it was introduced, there were three types of POVs: silver, gold, and diamond, each with their own unique powers.
Renowned player Janelle used the POV to save herself four times in season seven of “Big Brother,” according to Nick. Amazingly, no other house guest has ever been able to save themselves more than twice with the awesome piece of jewelry.
Overall, although men have won more POVs than women, Janelle holds the most total wins at seven. Brendon Villegas, who went on to marry “Big Brother” winner Rachel Reilly, is next in line with six POV wins, Nick reveals.
Nick also notes the POV was used the most – 11 times to be exact – in season 15 of “Big Brother.” It was used the least back in season three, the year in which it premiered.
Once again, Nick is entertaining, witty, and altogether informative, as he lasers graphics into oblivion with only his eyes, takes a fall in a paper bag and survives, and spits an impromptu rap that goes something like, “veto, mosquito, Dorito, and a handful of Cheetos...” In addition, he offers trivia about “Big Brother” that diehard fans and those new to the show are sure to find fun and fascinating.
“Big Brother” season 16 airs on Sundays at 8 p.m. ET, Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET, with live eviction shows airing on Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on CBS. In addition, “Big Brother: After Dark” is airing Monday and Tuesday nights at 11 p.m. ET, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights at 12 a.m. ET, and Thursdays at 1 a.m. ET on TVGN.
