Raven asked if Matt was actually thinking about keeping Ramses, to which Matt said not at all. Raven said that Josh doesn’t know that he’s the one that’ll be staying.

Cody added that he’d love to play in the veto and be the person who put the final nail in Josh’ coffin.
1:45 AM BBT: Christmas told Raven that Paul is a really good competitor. Raven agreed, adding that Paul is a good competitor on top of having experience and being super intelligent.
