OTEV "The Paranoid Pigeon" made a splash in Season 21.

OTEV "The Sneezy Skunk" spurted some snot during Season 20.

The all-powerful Big Brother deity known as OTEV made another appearance during the landmark 20th season of BB, once again changing shapes. 

For this Veto competition, OTEV took the form of the Sneezy Skunk, drenching the competing Houseguests in snot and smelly spray as they rushed to find the right medicine bottles in exchange for the coveted Power of Veto.

OTEV "The Dopest DJ" cranked up the volume in Season 18.

The Season 18 Houseguests raved in the backyard when OTEV "The Dopest DJ" took the stage to spin some da-da-da-dope tunes at the Electric BB Festival.

In a very posh British accent, the flippant frog made the competing players sift through a dank bog to return some turnt tracks. Though she may've had an epic fall during the competition, Michelle grooved her way onto the last lily pad just in time to drop the bass and win the golden Power Of Veto!

OTEV "The Rockin' Roll" made the Houseguests headbang in Season 17.

Do you know what goes best with rocking-good rolls? Butter, of course.

Okay, so for this specific Rockin' Roll, the answer is actually buttaaaaaa! If the remaining Houseguests were able to bring back the desired sticks of golden goodness without getting in a food fight, the rock god would grant one groupie person the Power of Veto. Two things stick out from this competition: Liz's somewhat unexpected win and Meg's cringeworthy fall. Poor #GrandmaMeg!

OTEV "The Pissed-Off Penguin" tried to keep his cool in Season 16.

OTEV might look all cute and cuddly, but don't get on this guy’s bad side! All this finicky flightless bird wanted was a cold drink to balance out the tropical setting of this POV competition. Major props go to Zach for being the one Houseguest able to quench OTEV's thirst—and whose win allowed him to take himself off the block.

Fun fact: famed comedian Gilbert Gottfried was the voice of this aggro aquatic animal!

OTEV "The Absent-Minded Alien" ventured into unknown territory in Season 14.

Strange things happened in the backyard during this POV competition!

OTEV needed the earthling Houseguests to help him find fuel for this spaceship. Dan, who won the coveted necklace, didn't snag a ride on the otherworldly vessel, but he did manage to walk away with the ability to pull Jenn off the block.
OTEV was first introduced to Big Brother fans in Season 7, Episode 20.

OTEV—which, for those who don't consider themselves students of etymology, spells "Veto" backwards—has long been a fan favorite for Big Brother Houseguests and fans alike.

The mythical creature first appeared in Season 7 during the "Voo Doo Dolls" POV competition and challenged the remaining group of Houseguests to answer a list of questions regarding past moments in the house, collect the corresponding stuffed effigy, and bring the initialed figure back to him as a sort of sacrifice. Who won this difficult comp? None other than Janelle!

Since then, OTEV has recurred during several Power of Veto competitions and, each year, the icon's booming voice has sent HGs racing around the BB backyard to find various items and quickly return them to the powerful figure.
