BB day 52

Post  Banjo on 2017-08-11, 14:26


As expected, Jessica is evicted last night and the love of her life of 50 days carries her to the door and 'seals their separation' with a kiss. We almost threw up in our throats. With that trauma out of the way Alex then proceeds to win HOH. This portends a fairly quiet HOH week, this is the second time she has won HOH. I predict that she will nominate Cody and Christmas for eviction next Thursday. Cody, well because it's Cody, and the likelihood of him being evicted is high. Christmas because Alex has never liked her very much and they rarely, if ever, communicate on strategy, but the other HGs would much rather see Cody go. But it will be a double eviction next Thursday, but that doesn't mean that Christmas will automatically be the second evictee. They must compete for another HOH and the new one may have very different ideas as to who to evict.

Meanwhile this 'new' strategy between Mark and Jason arises but Jason is too wishy-washy to carry it out to a useful end so it could die on the vine and Paul could still rule the house, even more so with Cody gone. Eventually Paul's continued presence in the house will be to the detriment of any HG actually trying to win the $500 K as opposed to merely making it to Jury, which during the last half of the season is a goal of many because they realize they don't have much of a chance of winning and just getting to stay in a nice house for some weeks, with all amenities and no responsibilities for competing or strategising other than agreeing with the other Jury House members as to who to vote to win. Paul made it to 2nd place last season, no reason he couldn't win this season if they don't take effective action soon.
The Jury House is a real house somewhere nearby the CBS Burbank studio where the BB house is. They never show anything other than a close up of the front, and some interior scenes with some of the Jury members as the limo drives up with the next evictee. They want to make sure that the location can't be identified to prevent lunatic fans from descending on it.

Big Brother 19 Live Feeds: Will Jason & Mark Flip On Paul?
August 10, 2017 Matthew Boyer Big Brother 19 265 Comments

Paul Abrahamian has been riding a good position in the Big Brother 19 house, but that might not be lasting as long as he had hoped. Yesterday Mark Jansen and Jason Dent had a little talk about Paul, his stranglehold on the game, and just what should be done about it.

Mark and Jason talk game on Big Brother 19

Someone is going to need to take Paul out of the game to break things open and redirect the season which has so far been a house full of heavily pro-Paul HGs. They’ve relied on his knowledge and expertise to guide their games, along with a lot more, but at what point will they decide they can spread their wings on their own? Mark might be ready to help give everyone a push and it sounds like Jason might be willing to join him.

Flashback to 3:46 PM BBT 8/9 Cams 3/4 on your Live Feeds (get the Free Trial now) to watch.

“How do you guys feel about Paul?” asks Mark. Jason starts off saying he thinks Paul has good interests in mind. Yeah, his own ya goof! Jason stalls for a bit before saying he thinks Paul has a mind that’s sharp as a tack before raising a real issue. Jason says Paul helps everybody, he wants to be everybody’s best friend. And that is a big part of Paul’s game.


Paul has made himself indispensable to so many HGs that they’re afraid to play without him. It’s a good strategy on Paul’s part and also a big part of why I have an issue with Vets. It removes the “lets discover this game!” part of the fun and, well, also part of the total disasters that can unfold for newbies.

Jason is on to that strategy and says Paul is doing this to make sure everyone is best buddies with him so they’d want to vote for him in the Jury. Just when you think Jason starts to talk against Paul he then wraps back around with “I don’t know, I’m a fan of that motherf**ker.” It’s like they’re all afraid to just say what they’re thinking. Paul is a threat to their chances of winning. Turns out, Mark isn’t that shy to say it.

“If Paul gets to the F2, nobody beats him,” says Mark. “Nobody,” agrees Jason, who asks Mark for his opinion. It’s hard to hear with the super low whispering, but it then sounds like Jason laughs and says “cut that f**ker.” But here it is again. Jason says he feels like Paul always knows what’s coming “so you feel bad to get rid of [him].”

Mark sits silently as Jason continues to run loops around himself babbling away. Mark finally says that he sees “one Vet in the house and he’s telling everyone what to do.” Mark is frustrated with how Paul called him out on Tuesday about the fights. Paul blamed Mark for not stopping Cody and Jessica after Mark had previously complained about no one stopping Josh from going off on him.

Now Mark starts to shift things. He tells Jason that he (J), Alex, and Kevin are voting together and that can control the votes here. Jason says he’ll talk with Alex, but Mark says it doesn’t matter right now. It’ll matter with who gets power next though.

Jump forward to 3:53 PM BBT. Mark tells Jason that only seven people have won anything in the house so far and if they took out Paul then all those other followers would be “lost puppies” and “if you take that out, the game gets a lot easier.” Mark says the puppies would be separated and “it’d be so easy to pick them off.”

So how do they get Paul out? Jason points out that Paul spent all last season on the Block, so it’s got to be a Backdoor move. Mark agrees, “but don’t say anything. It has to be perfect timing and everything has to fall in to place.” Mark pleads with Jason, “this has to stay between me and you.” “Duh,” confirms Jason.

Mark has a plan in mind, saying that if he gets HoH then Cody gets the Temptation safety and come Thursday night if Paul is still on the Block then it’d only take four votes to get Paul out the door. A quick vote check makes this look do-able in theory, but not a slam dunk. Cody for sure, then Jason if he’s in on this plan, but then they’d need two more. Mark suggests Elena, but just like Kevin and Alex, would any of those three really flip on their ally that they find so indispensable? This could get messy fast, but I like Mark’s spirit!

So what do you think? Mark sounds much more determined to target Paul while Jason sounds like he’d agree to anything that didn’t involve him being the target. I’d be worried for any VTE-Paul plans that relied on Jason just yet, but maybe he’ll surprise us. Then again, like Mark said, all the pieces have to come together and that starts with tonight’s Head of Household competition.

This makes sense, but whether Paul realizes it, is another story. Will his hatred of Cody blind him to the strategic value of keeping him around ?

Why Paul Should Keep Cody in the House on 'Big Brother 19'
Derek Stauffer

Contributing Writer, BuddyTV

Of Big Brother 19's many rivalries and feuds, none has been as consistent or bitter as the one between Paul and Cody. Since the very first night, Cody has not been a fan of Paul and he's made that known quite clearly. Now that Jessica is out of the game, Cody has no one to calm him down and he will likely go after Paul with every ounce of his energy. It's normally never a good idea to leave someone in Big Brother who wants you out, so Paul will undoubtedly try to target Cody, but it would be in Paul's best interest to keep Cody in the game as long as possible.


Why It's Good (and Bad) That There's No Jury Buyback on Big Brother 19>>>

The Devil You Know ...

On the live feeds, it appears that the initial plan for Alex's Head of Household reign, spearheaded by Paul, is to backdoor Cody for eviction. Plans can always change in Big Brother, especially with the Temptation Challenge this season, but Cody still seems to be Paul (and the house's) number one target. This is a silly plan. It's because Cody is incredibly unpopular that Paul should be trying to keep him around. Paul needs bigger threats in the house to draw everyone's focus. There is no one better to fill that role than Cody.

Cody wanting to get Paul out of the house and being able to pull it off are two very different things. Cody would not only have to win Head of Household to make Paul's eviction happen, a lot of other things would have to fall exactly into place. The most important piece of the puzzle is getting enough votes. Cody is never going to campaign for votes or play a good social game, so even if Paul is on the block come eviction night, his ouster will be far from ensured. Paul should be smart enough to realize this fact and use it to his advantage.

No one in the Big Brother 19 house, except for Mark and maybe Elena depending on her mood, likes Cody. Paul is sitting very pretty in the house as long as Cody is around. Everyone's energy is focused on Cody and how much they don't like him. No one can really focus on how much Paul is running the game when Cody is there causing chaos. Chaos isn't just good for Paul's game in Big Brother 19, it's the whole foundation. Without Cody, Paul has nothing.

Rolling the Dice

Paul might be on top in Big Brother 19 but it is a throne that is made from a house of cards. It's not stable. Paul's game is all fear tactics and loud "friendship." He's no mastermind. Paul has united the house over their mutual dislike of Cody. Once Cody is removed from the picture things are going to start crumbling very quickly.

The first targets after Cody might be one or both of the showmances but afterwards Paul's alliance is going to turn on itself and Christmas has already made it quite clear that she knows Paul can't be completely trusted. Once the immediate threat of Cody is eliminated, Paul is going to emerge as the biggest threat.

Will the House Ever Turn Against Paul on Big Brother 19?>>>

Paul has done maybe not an admirable job, as it has been based on nasty behavior, but an impressive one of controlling the house. All of Paul's control is based on this one very detested person. The best thing for Paul's game is for Cody to make the target on his back bigger and bigger. Paul should want Cody to go up on the block and pull himself off time and time again because it just makes himself look better and Cody look that much worse. If Cody goes, people are eventually going realize that Paul is their biggest obstacle to winning.

Paul might have control in the game but it's all risk. It's best for Paul to go all the way with that risky game and try to keep Cody in for just a little bit longer. He might be increasing his chances to go up on the block but he'll also be increasing his lifeline in the game.

But what do you think? Should Paul try to keep Cody in the game? When and if Cody goes will Paul soon follow suit? Do you think Cody could get Paul evicted? Do you see anything weakening Paul's control?

So the Jury gets to stay in a nice house for over a month. They probably still have to do their own cooking but there is always someone from BB production with them to keep things under control since there are no cameras in the house with 24/7 monitoring from a control room as there is in the BB house.

Why It's Good (and Bad) That There's No Jury Buyback on 'Big Brother 19'
John Kubicek
Senior Writer, BuddyTV

On Thursday's live eviction episode of Big Brother 19, Julie Chen announced to the house that the Top 11 all made it to the jury, something many of them have been talking about nonstop all season long. But Julie also revealed a huge twist. For the first time since season 14, no one from the jury will return to the game.

For the past four seasons in a row, there was always a competition where one of the first four or five members of the jury would get to return to the game, but thi will not be the case this year.

It's definitely nice to see the show switch up the game like this because the jury buyback has become such a regular occurrence that it's expected. It's also great news because it means the jury will be sequestered for less time.

Will the House Ever Turn Against Paul?>>>

One of the complaints about last year is that when Da'Vonne, the first member of the jury, was evicted, she was at the jury house for 48 days before voting for the finale. She missed almost half of the game and some fans wondered if being absent from the game for so long impacted her vote because she didn't have a clear picture of what happened.

For Big Brother 19, next week's double eviction will send the first two people to jury, and they will only be there for 34 days before the finale. That's a huge improvement because the jurors will miss far less of the game.

However, there is one huge problem with the revelation that there will be no jury buyback. Why did Julie tell them? The motto of Big Brother is "Expect the Unexpected," but nothing about the game is unexpected is Julie tells the HGs what to expect.

Will There Be Another Halfway Clip Show?>>>

Part of the fun of the game is the rampant paranoia in the house because they don't know what's coming. Julie didn't tell them about the Battle Back ahead of time. Even with the Den of Temptation, the HGs always had to wait to find out the Curse and were forced to speculate and worry about what it could be.

But now there's no paranoia and nothing to worry about. As much as I prefer a simple, regular game without twists, I wish the show would stay consistent. Either tell the HGs ahead of time what's happening or don't give them any information about what will occur in the game. Don't give us half and half.
