Big Brother: A Potential POV Dilemma

I was thinking about the situation in the Big Brother House, and I came up with what may be a potential problem regarding the POV for this week. Hear me out, and see if this makes sense...and if I'm missing something or I'm wrong, please let me know.

This season started with 7 Duos, and after the elimination of Keith, Dick, and Cassi, we are down to only 4 Duos remaining: Brendon and Rachel, Jeff and Jordan, Adam and Dominic, and Lawon and Kalia.With Rachel as the HoH for this week, she and Brendon are both safe, and Porsche, Daniele, and Shelly are all holders of "The Golden Key", so their nomination must be one of the remaining three Duos. Let's assume just for the sake of argument that they nominate Adam and Dominic for eviction.

Now, in the past, if you won the POV and chose to use it to remove someone from the block, you were not eligible to be named as the replacement nominee. We've heard nothing to the contrary this season, so is it safe to assume that this standard Big Brother rule still applies? (If anyone has heard otherwise, please let me know.)

Here's my question: If you win the POV and choose to remove a Duo from the block (since you presumably can't just remove ONE person from the block), are you and your partner safe as well?  Here's why I ask...

Let's assume still that Adam and Dominic are nominated for eviction. Now let's assume that Lawon (or Kalia) wins the POV....AND chooses to use it to save Adam and Dominic. Well, if that's the case, and Lawon and Kalia are now safe...then Rachel's replacement nominees would have to be...

Jeff and Jordan.

Has anyone else considered this? I know that for this scenario to take place, a number of things have to fall in place: one newbie Duo has to be nominated; the other newbie Duo has to be chosen to participate in the random draw (not that far-fetched since there are only 2 teams to choose from); the 2nd newbie Duo has to win the POV; and then the second newbie Duo has to choose to use the POV.

Which, if my logic is right...would be a pretty smart move to break up the Veteran alliance...don't you think?

Are you new to this game? Are you just catching up? You have NOT given us anything new to think about. You are spewing the obvious.

Anonymous 4:58, Lose the attitude. I'll spew whatever I want. If you don't like it, don't read.

Anonymous 7:38, this blog is based on the TV airings only, not the live feeds, and it is Spoiler-Free, so I'm sorry, but I have removed your comment since it gives details on the upcoming nominations for tonight's episode.

And YES, it is new. The fact that the current HoH might have only one choice to put if the POV is used is very new...when there are still ELEVEN players in the game.

When there are 5 left, that's when this math comes in to play, not 11.
