It’s the day before the first live eviction of the summer, which means that the final stages of campaigning will be ramped up as the houseguests choose who they’re going to work with moving forward.
9:30 AM BBT: Jason told Kevin that Paul warned him that if he’s on the wrong side of the vote when Christmas stays, they’re going to be gunning for him. Kevin told him that people have been gunning for Jason since the beginning and is yet to be nominated. Kevin added that Jillian is going to have more allegiance to them than Christmas ever would.
10:25 AM BBT: Jessica told Cody that she doesn’t like when people feel too safe in the house, so she said that if Matt, Raven, and Elena keep doing what they’re doing, they’re going to regret making an enemy of the wrong side of the house.
10:30 AM BBT: Jessica asked Kevin how he was going to vote. Kevin said that he hasn’t thought about it because the girls have been fighting and Christmas is injured. Jessica said she doesn’t think that Christmas should get a sympathy vote, to which Kevin agreed.
10:35 AM BBT: Jessica told Jillian that she spoke with Josh last night and she’s convinced that he’s going to be voting to keep her. Jessica added that she talked to Kevin and he said that he was going to wait to see what Christmas’ MRI says, but Jessica told Jillian that she let Kevin know not to give Christmas a sympathy vote for rolling her ankle.
11:00 AM BBT: Kevin told Paul that Cody and Jessica asked him how he’s going to vote and that he told them that he doesn’t know yet. Paul asked if he was going to vote to keep Christmas, to which Kevin said that he probably was, adding that Paul is going to be shocked because a couple of people aren’t going to. Paul told Kevin that the only people who aren’t voting to save Christmas are Ramses, Alex, and maybe Jason. Paul said that Kevin doesn’t want to be caught on the wrong side of the vote if the house chooses to keep Christmas.
11:05 AM BBT: Paul told Elena that he believes Ramses is lying about his curse because Paul said that he read it as Ramses having to be the third nominee three weeks in a row, not just one of the three. Elena told Paul that she’ll feel better when both Cody and Jessica are out of the house, explaining that she believes Jessica is coming after her now.
11:15 AM BBT: Kevin told Alex that if Christmas comes back and says she’ll be recovering for six weeks, he doesn’t think that people are going to let her just sit on the couch all that time without being evicted. Alex agreed, saying she doesn’t think people will let her last even one week.
12:00 PM BBT: Cody told Alex that Matt is disloyal and that whenever he asked Matt if he trusted Paul over him even after Paul blatantly lied to all of them, Matt said yes. Cody added that every time she is brought up, it’s always in fear about how they need to get her out. Alex told him that once they secure the vote tomorrow, they’ll be much better off since if Christmas stays, they’re screwed. Alex added that she thought Christmas breaking her foot would have been a clear vote from both sides on getting her out. Cody said that they’re all idiots.
1:05 PM BBT: Cody told Kevin that he’s almost hoping that the vote is a tie so that he can be the one to send Christmas out. Kevin said that he thinks Paul’s group will come after Cody after that, but said that he’s going to go with Cody this time and vote out Christmas because Jillian deserves a chance after being nominated 3 times.
1:05 PM BBT: Jillian told Ramses that she thinks he should go up on the block this week as apart of his curse because they have the votes. Ramses said he doesn’t know who would be going up next to him next week. Ramses added that he can’t win HOH because he wouldn’t be able to put himself on the block like he needs to.
Ramses told Jillian that he is positive that she’s staying in the house and that there is no doubt in his mind as long as nobody flips their vote.
1:55 PM BBT: Kevin told Jason that Cody asked for his vote and that he told Cody that he has his back, so Kevin said that they need to make Cody think that they’re voting the way they are because Cody influenced them. Jason asked if Kevin thinks they’re going to be able to trust Ramses, to which Kevin said that he’d twist Ramses up like a pretzel if he flipped.
Kevin told Jason that Paul is saying that Christmas is going to stay in the house by a 9-4 vote, but said that he believe that it’ll actually be 9-4 to evict Christmas.
2:05 PM BBT: Mark, Matt, and Raven said they want to think about trying to get Ramses, Jessica, and Cody all out before jury starts. Mark said that he trusts Jason because he has had a relationship with him since day one, but said that Alex is a wildcard. Matt said that both Jason and Alex want Jessica out. Matt told them that when they take a shot at Cody, they have to make sure that they get him out that time and don’t give Cody a chance at regaining power. Elena says that she has a feeling that Paul would nominate Cody and Jessica together. Matt said that would ensure one of them left, but that Cody would likely be the one who remained.
2:10 PM BBT: Jason told Alex that he feels like them two and Kevin are a solid three. Alex agreed, saying that she trusts them completely. Alex told Jason that she doesn’t want to work with Jessica because she would backstab them. Jason agreed, saying that they need to get rid of her. Alex said that she made clear to Cody that their deal was week-to-week, so once two weeks goes by, they need to take a shot at Jessica.
3:15 PM BBT: Christmas rejoins the house, revealing that two bones in her foot are broken, but that she isn’t going to be leaving the house. She made clear that no competitions are going to be altered to accommodate her and that a doctor will determine which she can compete in.
3:25 PM BBT: Mark commented to Paul how Jessica and Cody didn’t even come downstairs to welcome Christmas back. Paul said doing something like that is just being a dick and not game related.
3:30 PM BBT: Christmas told Dominique not to discount her because she’s still going to be going after Cody. Christmas asked for updates regarding the game. Dominique told her that their team is feeling pretty good and that Dominique has actually been waiting for God’s approval to start playing mind games on Ramses because she believes that he’s a snake. Christmas said she’s hoping the order of evictions are Jillian, Jessica or Cody, then they can think of a third.
3:45 PM BBT: Elena told Mark that she’s not saying that he can’t trust Jason, but said that she is saying that she doesn’t think he should. Elena went on to tell Mark and Matt that she’s going to be friends with Cody outside the house, but said that she cannot trust him on a game level anymore.
4:05 PM BBT: Jessica asked Christmas what the diagnosis on her foot was. Christmas said that the diagnosis was that she’s here in the house. When Jessica asked how long the cast had to stay on, Christmas said that it’ll stay on as long as needed.
4:50 PM BBT: Jason asked Mark how he was feeling going into tomorrow’s vote. Mark said that he’s feeling phenomenal because nobody sees it coming, which Mark says is how he wants it. Mark added that everyone is on the same page as to who to get out over the next three weeks, then they’ll be in jury. Jason asked who is winning HOH, to which Mark said it would preferably be Paul because he wants to take out Cody.
4;55 PM BBT: Cody told Jessica that Christmas is so confident about the vote despite not having it. Jessica said that Christmas is trying to play mind games with her, as if she was dumb or easily intimidated. Jessica said that she wants Christmas and Matt out of the house. Cody agreed, saying that Matt is a snake and a piece of shit.
6:00 PM BBT: Christmas told Dominique, Elena, Mark, Paul, and Raven that she might have broken her foot, but still has a lot to tribute. Christmas added that she’s fine with being the first one taken out at jury.
6:05 PM BBT: Kevin told Jason that if one of them win, they need to put up Matt and Mark with the intention of one of those nominee winning veto and giving them the chance to backdoor Cody. Jason said that Cody is on their side, but Kevin said that he isn’t sure, saying that Cody was on the other side first and could just jump back.
6:45 PM BBT: Dominique told Christmas that she believes that Paul really is about loyalty and friendship because if he were to try anything different from what he had been preaching, his fans might not still respect him. Dominique said that she wants to talk to Paul about strategy because she wants to know if it would just be easier to put Cody and Jessica up together outright.
7:20 PM BBT: Dominique told Mark that she won’t be coming after his girlfriend. Mark said that as long as she waits until they get closer to jury. Mark added that Elena is very close to Matt and Raven, saying that he caught them whispering and when he walked in, they stopped. \
7:30 PM BBT: Paul gave Jason his word that neither him or Alex would be going anywhere near the block if he were to win HOH.
7:30 PM BBT: Mark told Dominique and Matt that he believes the best and safest thing they could do to ensure that one goes home is putting up Jessica and Cody together outright. Dominique agreed, saying that at least one needs to go home, but said that she’d prefer it be Cody.
7:40 PM BBT: Josh told Paul that he’s the only person he trusts and that he was hoping somebody like Paul would be coming into the game. Paul promised Josh that he would never put him on the block unless it was as a pawn, but even then said he would let Josh know first. Paul explained that if he wins HOH, the plan is to get Jessica and Cody out.
7:55 PM BBT: Mark told Dominique and Matt that Cody is convinced that they still have the votes to evict Christmas and that he and Mark are still as close as they were before.
7:55 PM BBT: Ramses asked Cody if he’s going to have his back next week, to which Cody said yes, stating that they’re both on the same side now.
8:00 PM BBT: Mark asked Josh where his head was at, stating that Christmas is his girl. Josh said that Christmas has been there for him the entire summer so far, which is something he looks at as an indicator for where his vote belongs. Josh added that Cody tried telling him that Paul’s side is trying to pick off his side one by one, but Josh said that Cody and Jessica hadn’t spoken to him all week and that he has his own mind to make decisions. Josh went on to give Dominique and Mark his word that he’s going to stick with them and be loyal to them.
8:05 PM BBT: Dominique told Matt that she believes Josh should make it to jury. Matt said he had no problem with that, explaining that it would be Cody, Jessica, and Ramses taken out before jury. Mark told them that there is a good chance that there is going to be a battle back that Cody wins, which in that case Mark said that they will just send Cody right back out.
8:25 PM BBT: Josh told Christmas that Cody and Jessica look at him like they’re disgusted and haven’t spoken a word of game to him. Josh explained the pitch that Jessica and Cody made to him last night about voting to keep Jillian in the house and said that he told Jessica and Cody that he’d vote how they wanted, but said in reality that he wants to work with her, Paul, and Dominique. Christmas agreed, saying that she has already let people know that the two of them have been solid since day one. Christmas told Josh about Jessica never mentioning anything positive about him when he is brought up in conversation. Josh said that if he wins HOH, he’s going to backdoor Cody, nominate Jessica and a pawn.
Josh gave Christmas his word of loyalty and said that his actions are what matter, which he said that he’d prove tomorrow with his vote to keep her. Josh added that if he ever does get HOH, Christmas won’t ever have anything to fear.
8:30 PM BBT: Kevin told Jillian that she has him, Ramses, Alex, Josh, Jason, Jessica, and Cody voting for her, ensuring that she’s going to be safe this week, adding that he doesn’t think she’ll even be on the block next week.
9:05 PM BBT: Christmas told Dominique and Elena that Alex is going to be pissed and will grill Josh, but said that Josh will stand is ground and say that he wasn’t one of the votes against Jillian.
Dominique told the girls that Ramses has to go soon after Jillian. Elena agreed, saying that she could start letting Ramses know that people are pissed at him for being apart of the banner plane lie. Christmas said they might want to be nice to Ramses until he nominates himself as part of the curse.
9:10 PM BBT: Josh told Jason not to let anyone in the house realize how close the two of them are. Jason asked him if Christmas was leaving, to which Josh said that she was. Jason warned Josh that he better stay to the pact the made or else his ass would be grass, adding that he better not mess up the vote and vote to evict Christmas no matter what is said to him.
9:15 PM BBT: Josh told Alex that she needs to trust him when he says he is with her, Jason, and Kevin. Alex said that she does trust him and instructed him to just make Paul’s group think that he’s with them. Josh ended the conversation by telling her that she’ll see that she can trust him through his actions.
12:00 AM BBT: Ramses warned Kevin that Paul’s group are trying to sway Josh’s vote. Kevin told him not to worry because Josh wouldn’t change his vote on them.
12:10 AM BBT: Josh told Kevin and Jillian that he’s not playing anybody else’s game and that if he were to get HOH, he’s going to do what is best for their group.
12:25 AM BBT: Josh told Alex that he’s starting to question if it’s smart to get rid of Jessica and Cody because he said that they could just let them two go at it with Paul’s side of the house. Jason said that they can talk about what their plan is next week once they get HOH, reiterating the need to stick with the plan for this week of evicting Christmas.
1:40 AM BBT: Josh had a conversation with himself on what he should do at tomorrow’s vote. He said that there is a strong alliance that consists of Paul, Christmas, Dominique, Matt, Raven, Mark, and Elena. Josh explained that his problem with that alliance is that none of them are looking to let Josh join it. Josh said that while Christmas has trusted him, she isn’t willing to break her back for him like he’s been willing to do for her and Paul. Josh said that moving forward, he could have a strong five in Jason, Alex, Ramses, Kevin, and Jillian since they’re all the outsiders. Josh made clear that his biggest problem with Paul and Christmas is their closeness to Elena, Mark, Raven, and Matt, saying that he doesn’t think Paul and Christmas know they’re allied to people who are untrustworthy.
2:10 AM BBT: Josh told Jillian and Alex that he’s going to make sure that they’re all safe, then he’s going to start throwing shots, which he said would blow up the house. Alex told him that he should keep pretending like he doesn’t know which side he’s on, that way Paul’s group might tell him information. Josh told the girls that they need to always remember that there was a nine person alliance that none of them were included in and were scheduled to be the pre-jury targets.
2:30 AM BBT: Alex told Jillian to stop giving information to Josh because he already knows too much. Jillian told her that Josh wants to be in an alliance with them. Alex said that they can be in a “”alliance””, but said that it would be little more than a loose alliance and even then said she doesn’t even want to call it an alliance. Alex went on to tell Jillian that people are going to try to target Ramses when he has to put himself up with the curse. Jillian said that they’re going to need to save Ramses since he’s better than Josh.
