I think that her putting up Joe gives a little hint that she may be recognizing the damage she's doing to herself -- although it is likely too late. The way she was putting such pressure on the veto players to go her way showed that she was thinking only about this week, giving no consideration at all to future weeks when she's not HOH. I think she may have started to think about that before the veto ceremony. Nick is more liked and supported in the house than Joe is. I think she chickened out a bit from the power she thought she had, and backed off to nominate Joe instead.Originally Posted by misskitty;2479916;
And as much as I hate to say it, she may have (possibly intentionally, but more likely unintentionally) bought herself a few extra weeks in the house with her power hungry ways this week. She's firmly established herself now as one of if not the most disliked person in the house. That means that now, she'll be in the position of each HOH thinking "I want to get her, but I know someone will next week, so I will do what I want to do". There's one every season who stays a lot longer than they should because of that kind of thought.
