    • I definitely missed the POV stuff, but there isn’t really anything trivia worthy of her HOHs in relation to the other stuff I posted.

  1. Christmas won a power of veto to say her self that is why she was in the final three with Paul and josh

    • Christmas never won POV. Paul was HOH and won the final POV competition and kept noms the same (Josh & Kevin), which gave Christmas the sole vote to evict as she wasn’t nominated.
