BB day 66

It's interesting that most of the HGs can't grasp that Paul is manipulating them to the end. It is nearly past the point that they can take their fate into their own hands. Meanwhile with his experience in S 18 he has a clearer vision of how not to make the mistakes he made then, but still finished in second.

Can Anyone on 'Big Brother 19' Possibly Beat Paul?
Derek Stauffer

Contributing Writer, BuddyTV

The majority alliance (otherwise known as Paul and his minions) got exactly what they wanted in Big Brother 19. The made it to the final eight with their team intact. Now it's time for them to turn on each other.

The alliance might have been eight people strong but now it has boiled down to three pairs with Paul and Kevin on the sidelines. Realistically it should be anyone's game but so far there's one person who is nobody's target for eviction: Paul. It begs the question if there's any houseguest left who can possibly stand up to him or if the season is essentially over with the winner being an inevitable conclusion.


Big Brother 19 Recap: The Inevitable Eviction of Mark>>>

Even though Paul does have final three deals with everyone, this isn't insurance he will get to the final two. Paul still really needs to win the final HoH because as loyal as the house is to him, it seems unlikely that anyone would be that stupid to take him to end and/or they already have a solid partner. Nevertheless, with Paul's iron grip on the house it is worth discussing who, if anyone, could beat him.

Matt and Raven

Though Paul seems to be siding with Christmas and Josh or Jason and Alex over these two, this showmance is really his best chance to win. They would probably take each other to the end if either of them won the final HoH but that's an incredibly big "if." Raven and Matt are terrible at nearly every aspect of the game with Matt openly admitting he's a terrific loser.

For whatever reason, they seem to be big targets. Paul can't logically protect them but they'd be the perfect people to take to the end. Paul's biggest obstacle in winning this season is not necessarily making it to the end but picking the right person so that the jury will vote for him when he gets there. No one respects Matt and Raven's "games" and if Paul was against either of them, he'd win by default.

Kevin

Kevin is probably the second safest option for Paul to take to the end. Unless Kevin suddenly awakens in the last month of the game to be some strategic mastermind or competition beast, no one is going to seriously argue he has played the best game this summer. Kevin did a good job sticking under the radar but he has long since passed the time he should have emerged as a threat if he wanted to win. Kevin is probably the most liked person in the house (and among the current jury) but it's doubtful that anyone will award his do-nothing game over Paul.

Christmas

As much as Christmas talks about making big moves but does nothing, she probably would've been Paul's biggest threat if not for her injury. Christmas' broken foot has severely hindered her game. Even if she has shown an insane level of trust in Paul, Christmas hasn't been able to compete in most of the competitions this season. As such she's become a bit of non-entity. This combined with the fact that she's really participated in kicking her fellow houseguests when they're already down makes it likely that no one is going to want to vote for her in the end. Christmas, unlike the holiday, isn't super popular.

Jason

Jason is in the same position as Christmas, he's just viewed as slightly more likable. Jason has won a few competitions. He's directly behind Paul and Alex in terms of wins. Jason just has no strategic mind of his own. He's not exactly dead weight, like Zingbot called him. He's more just a tool. Jason has never thought for himself once the entire game and has done exactly what Paul or Alex has told him to do. There's no way he'd win against Paul, who could easily argue against him.

Josh

It would've been unthinkable at the start of the game but there's a chance, even a very small one, that Josh could beat Paul at the end. Josh is certainly an immature jerk but he has shown some genuine strategy and a winning thought process recently in the season. Mark even stood up for Josh as he exited the game, praising him for how Josh "turned it around."

Why Matt Is an Embarrassment on Big Brother 19>>>

Josh used to be the perfect goat but he's positioned himself in such a way that he could be a real power player in the endgame of Big Brother 19. Josh is never going to get Cody's vote but depending on how things play out he could end up securing Alex, Jason, Kevin and Mark's votes, especially if Paul openly betrays those first three. Josh is never going to be one the best players but he honestly might be the winner Big Brother 19 deserves to have crowned.

Alex

Josh might have a chance to be a threat but Alex is Paul's biggest obstacle. Alex has a great competitive resume and she's been an aggressive player in BB19. Paul has used her a lot but Alex hasn't been quite as manipulated or rudderless in the game as her "ride-or-die" Jason. There's an argument to be made for her even playing a better game than Paul.

The deciding factor, if it comes down to Paul and Alex, will be the jury's personal feelings. Paul has been really awful to be people in the game but he's at least tried to soothe them before they head off to jury, understanding that bad jury management was his downfall in Big Brother 18. Alex, meanwhile, has been just as petty as Paul but hasn't really bothered to make people like her as they leave the house. In fact, she's really done the exact opposite, openly antagonizing Cody and Elena. Everyone who is on the jury now, with the exception of Mark, will not respect that and that could make Alex's competition wins irrelevant.

The bottom line is that Paul will probably win Big Brother 19 but it's not a done deal. Alex, Josh, Christmas or even Jason could unseat him. It's not likely but it's possible. This season has been very predictable so far with the target almost always going home but things can still change. Paul doesn't have the game locked up ... yet.

But what do you think? Could Alex or Josh beat Paul at the end? Could anyone in BB19 beat Paul? Who do you want to win? Does Paul deserve to win?

‘Big Brother 19’ Spoilers: Tree Of Temptation – Week 9
August 25, 2017 Matthew Boyer Big Brother 2 Comments

Tree of Temptation twist on Big Brother 19

The Tree of Temptation twist is back for Week 9 of Big Brother 19 and it’s about as big a hit as a contagious rash might be in that house. Yep, things aren’t looking too good for this apple tree.

Continuing the Summer of Temptation, following the Den and Competition installments, is the “Tree of Temptation” which bears the fruit of five apples and inside each of them is either a power or a curse. Houseguests would have to be the first to race to the Diary Room each Friday when the tree lit up just hours before Nominations. Or not.

This morning, Flashback on your Live Feeds to 10:04 AM BBT as the spooky voiceover announces the tree has come to life. If you have the Feeds on mute you wouldn’t know anything had happened because there was practically zero reaction. HGs just kept on chatting and sitting around like nothing was going on.

Slowly Matthew walked back to the kitchen but didn’t even bother to walk over. Paul came out of the Lounge, looked around, and announced that he was going to get it but then admitted he was joking. He strolled over to the well lit tree with Raven and chatted about the twist’s “gumpy-ness”. Few others stopped by but there were no takers.

It’s been just over two hours since the tree opened up an opportunity for someone to grab one of the four remaining powers and still yet there are no takers. This twist could be about to fall apart. As Paul pointed out, if there was some cash in the mix they’d probably get a better reaction. We’ll have to see if that gets added next week.

Trouble here is that Paul has everyone so convinced that they’re safe no one realizes that’s going on. Matthew and Raven are about to go up, but they think Kevin is the target while everyone else knows otherwise. Paul is working to make sure Raven and Matthew don’t wise up and make a grab for some power here. So far his plan is working.

As a reminder, here are the four remaining options after Mark got the “Save-A-Friend” apple last week:

Second Veto
Eliminate 2 Eviction Votes
Bounty On Your Head
Can’t Play In Next HoH

Since Feeds were down last week we don’t know how long exactly this twist will be active this afternoon, but it’s likely going to be closed for business by the time nominations arrive later tonight. Speaking of, I’d bet Matthew and Raven, this week’s current eviction targets, will wish they took the gamble on an apple by the time the Veto Ceremony rolls around.
