BB day 35

Post  Banjo on 2017-07-25, 12:58

So now we know that Jessica's plan to evict Josh may be undermined if the conspirators can keep the secret until Thursday. Booting Ramses rather than Josh is still a mistake imho. Of course Josh makes for more entertaining 'action' on the live feeds but that's not a consideration for the HGs if they intend to play the most strategic game.

This week’s Veto Ceremony is over and we have our final Big Brother 19 noms. Read on for the latest Big Brother spoilers for Week 4’s Power of Veto events.

Overnight it looked like Jessica might have finally caught on to the plan to evict the pawn over her target Josh. All she had to do was take down Ramses, her pawn, and replace him with someone the other side would rather keep. Her fears grew, but Cody and Elena worked to calm those worries. Which side of the argument won? Read on for the spoilers.

Power of Veto Ceremony Spoilers – Week 4


  • Jessica decided to not use the Veto.
  • Josh & Ramses are this week’s final noms

Jessica should have gone with her gut instead of listening to Cody telling her to not make more waves or Elena telling her all the votes would follow her own. They were wrong.
The current plan is to keep Jessica, Cody, Mark, and Elena in the dark. Everyone else will be voting out Ramses and he’ll be out the door and Josh will be sticking around. Paul wants to make it a surprise for Thursday night, but at this point the worst that can happen is a few extra days of death glares from Cody.
 The noms are locked in and it’s no longer up to Cody and Jessica unless Jessica wants to waste her Halting Hex, but there’s no way she’d do that, right?

Big Brother 19: Jessica Almost Had The Perfect Week Locked In [Op-Ed]
Posted: 25 Jul 2017 07:00 AM PDT
“Fool me once, shame on you …” You know the saying. And I can’t help but think of it when I think of current Big Brother 19 Head of Household Jessica Graf.

(WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD) Jessica ALMOST had the perfect Big Brother week in the bag. She is in possession of a secret power that can save herself from eviction, her boyfriend re-entered the game via the Battle Back Showdown, she won HOH, and then turned around and won the Power of Veto.
That is absolute and complete control. Arguably one of the best weeks ever had inside the Big Brother house, outside of winning the game.
All that power and esteem and she’s still poised to be blindsided this week when the majority of the house votes to evict Jessica’s pawn instead of her target. And this all could have been avoided if she simply would have placed another target, or someone no one would ever vote out, next to her initial target. She had all the power to do so.
But before I go placing all the blame on Jessica, I have to point out that she did have her doubts about the plan. Her target this week is Josh. The entire house has agreed to unite to get him out. He’s a hothead and no one wants to be in the jury house with him, blah, blah, blah. But she had a fear the house would flip and vote out the pawn, Ramses. She was right to worry. But she was wrong to listen to Cody who told her not to sweat it and leave nominations the same. Cody was certain the house will get rid of Josh.
But that’s such a silly thing to presume on Cody’s part. Jessica and Cody have the biggest reasons to actually want Josh out because he’s butted heads with them all season. So that’s understandable. But what Cody and Jessica don’t seem to realize is that Josh hasn’t done anything to anyone else in the house besides Mark. And Mark is on their side this week and will also likely be blindsided when Josh doesn’t go anywhere this week.
When Jessica was having her doubts, her plan was to use the Power of Veto on Ramses and nominate Alex in his place. That way, she thought, Josh would surely go home because Alex would have the votes to stay. But then she realized Alex could look like a pretty juicy target herself, so people might take the chance to vote her out. So she decided Ramses, who has NO allies in the house, was a better pawn. Doh.
This could likely be Jessica’s fatal flaw in the game. And when she was having such a great week, too. All she had to do was pull Ramses down and put Alex, or even better Raven, on the block. No one would have voted Raven out. And if Alex was voted out, then that’s just another target out of the way. The same could even be said for Raven. At this point no one would vote against Raven in a final two scenario.
And you know what else might have been a good idea? Nominating Paul and Josh. That way Paul’s allies would definitely send Josh packing. And if by some chance there was a vote flip, Jessica could have evicting Paul on her resume.
I understand Jessica’s thinking this week, I really do. She wanted to rebuild relationships and stick to promises and plans to try and repair all the damage Cody did before he was evicted and returned to the game. But it’s Big Brother, and once a bridge is burned, it’s burned. Someone will always use what already happened in the house against you eventually. She should’ve just made a bold move this week and dealt with the repercussions later. I mean, she has the Halting Hex to help with that.
It was a great week for Jessica, but a tough one. In the end, I do get where she’s coming from, but I think she made a pretty big mistake this week. And while Cody could easily be blamed, she’s the one who had all the power this week when it’s all said and done. But she should really stop listening to Cody.
What do you think about Jessica’s moves this week in the Big Brother 19 house?

Is Josh on 'Big Brother 19' a Strategic Mastermind or Just a Bully?
Derek Stauffer

Contributing Writer, BuddyTV

Josh has strangely become one of Big Brother 19's most interesting and volatile houseguests. Josh has been quick to anger and even quicker to cry. Josh has been no stranger to fights in the house, managing to have some big blow-up with nearly everyone. For all his war of words though, Josh's most frequent and exhausting fights have been with Jessica or Cody.


Is Cody Still Doomed on Big Brother 19?>>>

The big rivalry, if something so petty can even be called a rivalry, culminated in Josh mercilessly annoying Jessica and Cody while they tried to win HoH. This act, along with everything else he has done, resulted in Josh becoming Jessica's target during her Head of Household run. Yet all the other houseguests seem to enjoy Josh's antagonizing of BB19's former power couple. So is Josh's teasing of Jessica and Cody a good gameplay move or is he just being annoying and unsportsmanlike?

The Benefit of Being a Target

Josh has chosen a good target for its emotional outbursts. While Josh is almost certainly a hot mess and his actions are 99.9% ruled by his emotions, he has made a real effort to go after Jessica and Cody. Some of their altercations have been in the heat of the moment but most of the fights haven't been a natural occurrence. Josh has deliberately and purposely gone after Jessica and Cody.

It's something that certainly hasn't endeared him to Jessica or Cody but the rest of the house does seem to enjoy it. It helps that Paul has literally egged Josh on to annoy the two but everyone gets a real kick out of Josh's antics. Alex, Jason and Ramses were having a giggling fit when Josh went after Jessica following his big blow-up with Mark. (The only thing the trio were missing was some popcorn.) Matt enjoyed Josh's taunting at the HoH competition so much that Raven had to cover his laughter with her entire body. Jessica and Cody are so unpopular, due mainly to their own actions, that Josh kicking them when they're down isn't frowned upon at all, it is celebrated.

Josh is also riling Cody and Jessica up perfectly. Josh isn't a threat. He doesn't seem to have any major alliances, at least no real ones. He is being used by stronger and better players as a vote but Josh has no real power and influence. Jessica and Cody would be best served by tuning Josh out altogether and not engaging with him. Yet they continually stoop to Josh's level.

Josh is Jessica's number one target in the house, which is insane considering there are so many other threats to go after before him. Josh sending Jessica and Cody into such a blind rage is a dangerous move but it is proving to be a smart one. Those bigger threats like Paul, Alex or Christmas are going to want to keep Josh around so they don't get targeted by Jessica or Cody next. It's for this reason that Jessica's pawn, Ramses, is likely to go home way before Josh.

A (Loud) Flash in the Pan

Josh's taunting is only a brilliant game move if Josh intended it to work out this way and that doesn't seem likely. Josh seems to have lucked into this position and is being coached by Paul and the rest to stay there. Josh might choose to go after Jessica and Cody but it is not motivated by gameplay. Josh just really doesn't like either one of them and can't help himself from letting them know. It's all personal and it is only houseguests like Paul who are seeing the gameplay potential.

Who Is the Villain of Big Brother 19?>>>

Josh's behavior towards Jessica and Cody has been nasty. Jessica and Cody are not the most likable people, especially Cody, but Josh constantly calling them "meatballs" and talking down to them just seems uncalled for and way too mean-spirited. This is especially true since Josh can't seem to take ANY of his own medicine being shot back at him. Cody likely started this whole feud by insulting Josh but anytime Cody or Jessica have done anything but tell Josh to shut up, he devolves into a blubbering mess. Josh's behavior toward Jessica and Cody might be fun for the houseguests but for the audience it can only be viewed as whiny, annoying and cowardly.

There is also the fact that there is no long-term benefit to Josh's taunting. It is becoming clear that Jessica and Cody's days together in the Big Brother house are numbered once again. Once Jessica uses her Halting Hex and buys them safety, it is over. They will be separated eventually. Once that happens, Josh is not going to be a benefit to anyone's game. Once Cody or Jessica goes, Josh loses all relevance in the game.

But what do you think? Is Josh's behavior helping him or is it just mean-spirited? Is Josh intentionally riling the two up to stay in the house or does it just happen to look that way? What do you think Josh should do moving forward?
