The Trifecta is a major alliance formed in BB12.
This alliance formed early in the game, as Draskk and Hermes caught up and discussed who they wanted to work with. Hermes managed to bring in Flour to the alliance, with Draskk supposedly bringing in Amy-Kate, though this never ended up happening. Together, they formed the Trifecta.
The alliance had a list of earlygame moves that solidified their strength:
- Flour won the first Safety Suite competition and chose to save Draskk, which proved to be a good decision as Ephemera (the first HOH) had considered targeting them.
- Draskk managed to convince Anna to move away from using Flour as a replacement pawn to take out Amy-Kate, and get her to backdoor Ephemera and target them. Draskk then also flipped the house as well, convincing the majority to take them out while they could.
- Hermes managed to win the third Safety Suite competition, choosing to save Brave to forge a new connection as well as throw any suspecting houseguests off the scent of his alliance with both Flour and Draskk, as well as his other significant alliance.
This alliance had plenty of success during the first 3 weeks, and the group worked well together until Flour's first HOH, where his decision to nominate Brave without communicating in the alliance complicated his relationship with Draskk, leading to their relationship falling apart and Hermes playing the middle between the two of them. Ultimately, Hermes and Flour were forced to cut Draskk weeks later, but the alliance had been dead long before that.
Though Flour ended up winning and Hermes had an iron grip on the game before that, their dominance in the later portions of the game doesn't owe much of its success to this alliance.
