It’s Power of Veto day in the Big Brother house, which means that we’re going to have plenty of game talk to mule over as Jessica will begin to settle in on who they’re going to be targeting. As it sits, they actually do want to target Josh, but depending on who wins POV, that could change.
9:20 AM BBT: Mark asked Jason why he said he was surprised last night when Mark told him that nothing has changed between them. Jason said that he wasn’t really surprised, that he was just didn’t know about his relationship with Cody. Mark said that was just him starting over with Cody after Cody threw him under the bus. Jason said that’s good.
9:35 AM BBT: Cody told Jason that him and Alex are the only two people who have stayed loyal to him. Jason said that he feels like half the people in the house only want to make it to jury. Cody said that it’s true that 11th is the same as 3rd place. Jason said that Christmas is crazy, coo coo, and an emotional wreck. Jason explained that he feels responsible for Christmas’ leg and said that he feels like Christmas is the one who always spreads negativity. Cody said that he hasn’t heard any of that, but said that he hasn’t spoke with her much.
Jason told Cody that Paul stood up during the Battle Back Showdown and told everyone to vote for him as the House Challenger so that they could turn around and vote the evictee right back out.
10:05 AM BBT: Cody told Jessica that it was Christmas who voted for him to stay, not Jason. Jessica asked where he got that from. Cody said that Jason admitted it to him that he didn’t vote to keep him. Jessica asked why Jason would admit that. Cody said that Jason is an idiot who can’t stop talking. Cody added that Kevin also said that he voted for him to stay. Jessica said that she has been saying that Kevin is the one who has been lying and that he was one of the votes against Jillian. Jessica said that she knew about the Christmas vote, but said that she was shocked to learn that Jason voted him out.
10:55 AM BBT: Paul told Alex and Jason that their plan to get Ramses out over Josh is still in motion. Paul told them that Raven brought up the idea of keeping Josh before he even had a chance to mention it. Paul said that the only person who hasn’t is Mark, so he said that they shouldn’t even mention it to him or Elena. Paul said that he believes Ramses made some sort of deal with Cody and Jessica, so they should get him out while they have Ramses pinned down. Paul said that by keeping Josh, Josh would go after Mark, Jessica, and Cody for them.
12:10 PM BBT: Kevin told Christmas that if Cody wins HOH next week, it’s going to be interesting, adding that if Cody knows anything, he’ll take Ramses out and put someone strong up next to him. Christmas said that she doesn’t think Cody knows anything, stating that they just need to get power back next week. Kevin said that they will since they have 4 or 5 people going against just Cody. Kevin said that he doesn’t know where Matt or Mark stand, explaining that it looks like those two are kissing Cody’s ass again. Christmas said that she believes Matt is just trying to be cordial with Cody.
1:45 PM BBT: Christmas, Cody, and Jason are selected to play in the veto alongside Jessica, Josh, and Ramses
1:55 PM BBT: Matt asked Christmas if she believes that Mark and Elena have a deal with Jessica and Cody. Christmas nodded that she thinks they do. Matt said that Mark and Elena are floating to each sides of the house between them and Cody and Jessica. Christmas said that she believes Mark and Elena threw the HOH competition as a nod to Cody. Christmas addd that she believes Mark voted to evict Ramses so that he would be on Cody’s good side if he were to return to the house. Matt said that he doesn’t disagree with Christmas on Mark and Elena, but said that he doesn’t think it matters since he knows Christmas will be in the house longer than those two.
Matt told Christmas that he believes they should throw the upcoming HOH to Jason or Alex because they’d put up Cody and Jessica or Mark and Elena, which he said that he didn’t care which. Christmas agreed.
2:10 PM BBT: Jessica told Ramses that no matter what happens, she’s going to rally votes for him and do everything in her power to make sure that Josh is the one who goes home.
2:15 PM BBT: Jessica asked Alex if she wasn’t thrilled with her nominations. Alex said that she wasn’t. Jessica said that she understands Alex thinks she can control Josh’s vote, but said that she knows from experience that Josh is too much of a wild card to rely on. Alex said that it’s not about Josh’s number, it’s about not knowing which of the two to vote out. Jessica said that Josh has been nothing but a distraction for her, which is why Jessica said that she wants him out. Jessica said that she knows there are bigger targets in the house, but said that she wants Josh out this week so that she can move forward with a clear head. Alex told Jessica that if Jason wins the veto, he won’t be using it.
2:30 PM BBT: Cody told Mark that before he was just wanting to make it to jury, but said that now he can envision them making it much further. Cody explained that they can keep this rolling for weeks since they have weapons like Elena and Jessica who have proven themselves. Mark said that Cody will see when he watches the show back that when he turned on Cody, it felt like he turned his back on his brother. Mark added that after Cody came back into the house, Elena asked him why he was so happy and Mark said that his boy is back in the house.
Mark told Cody that he’s not going to put him or Jessica up as pawns and will be completely safe in Mark’s book for the rest of the game. Mark said that Cody needs to trust him when he says that he’s happy that Cody is back in the game. Cody told Mark that he believes Christmas got the second temptation, then whoever is closest to Paul got the third. Mark said that if Jessica didn’t get it, he doesn’t have any idea as to who did. Cody said that he still thinks that Raven is America’s sweetheart, so she might have gotten it.
3:00 PM BBT: Alex told Jason that Jessica asked her to vote out Josh, giving her the reason that Josh throws Jessica off and that she doesn’t like him. Alex told Jason not to promise Jessica any vote and that what she said was that she’ll have to think about it because she’s pissed at both Ramses and Josh for breaking her glasses. Jason asked if they’re teaming up with Paul and Kevin. Alex said yes. Alex said that if the vote is close and Josh goes home, they’ll say that they don’t know what happened, then they’ll start planting the seed that it might have been Mark.
3:10 PM BBT: Josh told Jason that if Jason wins the veto, he doesn’t pull Josh off because he wants to be sitting against Ramses, but said that if it comes down to the two of them, Jason should throw it to Josh because they’ll have the votes to save whomever ends up being the replacement nominee. Josh said that if it’s the face off competition, they should always put Cody and Jessica up against each other.
3:15 PM BBT: Paul told Cody that things are stacked in their favor going into the POV competition and that he’s pretty sure that Josh is nervous.
5:15 PM BBT: Jessica won the Power of Veto
5:15 PM BBT: Jessica told Cody that Christmas threw that competition because the first round was too easy for her to get wrong. Cody said that it’s fine and that it benefitted Christmas to not win that competition.
5:25 PM BBT: Paul told Raven that Christmas said that Jessica isn’t going to use the veto. Raven asked if they have to votes to evict Ramses. Paul said yes, so long as her and Matt are 100% committed. Raven said that they are and said that Jessica is just assuming that they’re all going to vote Josh out.
5:30 PM BBT: Paul told Mark that he doesn’t think Jessica is going to use the veto. Mark said that he’s 1000% sure that Jessica isn’t going to use it and said that Cody and Jessica are just trying to do everything in their power to mend fences with them again. Paul said that Josh is done and said that Josh knows that since he has just rolled over at this point.
5:35 PM BBT: Jessica told Cody that they’re scaring people and putting a bigger target on their back by winning so many competitions, but said that they earned everything that they have. Jessica said that she thinks Elena is a little salty about losing, but said that she doesn’t think Elena would nominate either of them if she were to win the next HOH.
Cody told Jessica about his conversation with Mark, telling her that he was lying to Mark the entire time. Jessica explained that she had to convince Mark that Cody coming back into the house wouldn’t be a bad thing since he was so reprehensive about it. Jessica added that Mark talking to him just shows to her that Mark wants to become Cody’s best friend to get information, so she told Cody that he needs to be careful. Jessica said that she loves Mark as a person, but said that he’s making it difficult in the game. Cody said that he doesn’t know if he loves Mark as a person after the level of disloyalty he showed.
5:55 PM BBT: Jessica told Cody that if she gets any suspicion that one of them are going up, she is going to reveal her temptation before the nomination ceremony. Cody agreed with this plan, giving the example of the fact that he wouldn’t have wasted his HOH on Paul had he known Paul was safe.
6:10 PM BBT: Josh told Jason to just tell Jessica and Cody that he’s going to evict Josh, but said that Jason better vote to keep him. Jason said that he will.
6:20 PM BBT: Kevin asked Jason that if he really wanted Josh gone, wouldn’t he use the veto on Ramses and put up someone who is less of a target. Jason said yes.
6:25 PM BBT: Alex told Paul that Jessica asked her to vote against Josh. Paul said that they need to make it seem like Josh is going home. Paul added that Jessica doesn’t want to rock the boat, so she’s likely not going to use the veto. Paul told Alex that she should reiterate to Jessica that she won’t make any waves if she just doesn’t use it.
6:45 PM BBT: Paul told Josh that he should have a conversation with Cody and Jessica, telling them that he knows he’s going home and that he just wants to keep things civil.
6:45 PM BBT: Kevin told Christmas that if everyone doesn’t keep their cool, Jessica will use the veto on Ramses. Kevin asked if Matt were to replace Ramses on the block, would take take Matt out. Christmas said that they’d have to take Josh out at that point.
6:55 PM BBT: Josh began talking to the cameras. He said that his votes are Paul, Christmas, Alex, Jason, Kevin, Raven, and Matt, which he said will make the vote 7-3 to evict Ramses. Josh said that Jessica and Cody are going to lose it when the vote is revealed, stating that Jessica and Cody’s egos are inflated by seeing him miserable. Josh said that he’s going to drop a bomb on the house in his eviction speech by standing on the sofa and calling people out.
Josh said that Jessica was begging for everyone’s friendship when Cody left, but went right back to the way she was before when Cody returned. Josh said that Jessica is controlled by Cody and that her personality changes the moment Cody walks into a room. Josh said that everything he called Mark out on is proving itself to be true. Josh revealed that the people on his target list are Elena, Mark, Cody, and Jessica, but said in the meantime that he’s going to make this week BB hell for Cody and Mark.
7:50 PM BBT: Paul told Alex, Christmas, Jason, and Kevin that Josh has been doing such a good job with acting miserable. Paul added that Cody and Jessica are laughing at Josh now, but said that they’ll be the ones laughing by the time the week is over. Paul said that when one of them wins HOH next week, they’ll have to figure it out, but said that he thinks they should put up Mark. Christmas said that if they put up anybody as the replacement nominee, it’s not going to go in Jessica’s favor unless it’s Mark. Christmas added that Jessica did say that she didn’t want to shed anymore blood, so it sounds like the veto won’t be used.
8:10 PM BBT: Jessica told Cody that everyone is literally celebrating that Josh is leaving and that this is best case scenario for them since the house is united to get one person out. Cody said that there is only so much the house can take before people start to turn on him and question why he’s on their season. Jessica said that Paul trains animals and has been using those techniques in the house.
Jessica told Cody that she trusts Matt to be a straight shooter with her, but said that she doesn’t trust anything that Raven says. Jessica said that she trusts Elena to be honest with her, but said that she doesn’t trust anything that Mark says.
8:30 PM BBT: Mark told Cody and Jessica that he wanted to say again how happy he is that Cody is back and that he loves them. Jessica told Mark that she believes production is celebrating Josh going home and that is why they gave them alcohol tonight. Cody said that he hopes the crowd boos Josh when he walks out.
8:35 PM BBT: Cody told Jessica that Elena should have Mark’s back no matter what, then questioned why Elena would put their relationship to the side and say that she’s just playing the game. Jessica said that she thinks Elena doesn’t want to throw her game away for someone she doesn’t know is being sincere or not. Jessica said that if Elena made final two, she’d vote for her to win. Cody agreed. Jessica told Cody that she’s glad she won the veto so that she doesn’t have to put anyone else on the block and will show that she’s true to her word when everyone sees that there wasn’t a backdoor plan.
8:40 PM BBT: Jessica asked Mark if everyone is on board with getting Josh out. Mark said that Jessica doesn’t have anything to worry about, but said that he doesn’t think it’ll be unanimous. Jessica said that she was surprised by Dominique’s vote being unanimous, so she said that Josh’s might be too.
9:20 PM BBT: Matt told Raven that Jessica and Cody are going to ask them who they’re voting out and they’re going to have to lie to their faces. Matt explained that if they take out Ramses and Cody, Mark, or Elena wins HOH, one of them will be going home. Matt said that he’s down with the plan to get Ramses out, but said that it increases their odds of going home next week. Raven said that she doesn’t think it matters if they follow Cody and Jessica or not. Matt said that he disagrees, stating that for the group getting Ramses out is best, but for the two of them, keeping Josh might not be their best option.
9:25 PM BBT: Matt told Paul that he’s voting however the group votes, but said that Paul needs to realize that it increases their odds of one of them going home next week. Paul said that he disagreed, explaining that Cody is the only competitor going against them next week since Mark can’t win and Elena wouldn’t come after them. Paul added that he’ll take all the heat if Cody does end up winning HOH. Paul said that once Cody and Jessica see that the vote is 7-3, they won’t have any choice but to fall in line since they see that they’re not in the majority. Matt said they could easily take Ramses out next week, but Paul said they couldn’t, adding that they would be leaving Ramses, Mark, Cody, and Jessica together while Josh is a number for their side.
Paul said the the only person who is going to have a target pointed at is him. Matt said that they don’t want to be in the game without Paul. Paul said that it doesn’t matter and that they’re playing a game where risks have to be taken. Paul added that they need to keep enemies in the house and by keeping Josh, they’ll always have someone that would be targeted before Matt and Raven.
9:35 PM BBT: Ramses told Paul, Matt, and Raven that he was good until he was reminded that someone has a temptation. Paul told Ramses that Josh is clearly the target, so Ramses shouldn’t freak out and make himself stand out. Ramses said that he’s not worried and knows that he’s next to a bigger target.
10:25 PM BBT: Paul told Mark that the third curse hasn’t been unleashed and that it could be a reset week. Mark said there is no chance in hell because he believes that production wants Josh gone too. Mark added that he doesn’t think that Josh is good for them. Paul agreed. Mark said that he’s going to end up getting evicted if Josh stays.
10:25 PM BBT: Josh told Jessica that he knows he’s going home and that he just wants to be cordial and enjoy his last few days in the house. Jessica said that it’s going to be on Josh to uphold the being cordial part and said that if that is what he’s wanting, she’s fine with that. Jessica added that she’d love for Josh to enjoy her last few days in the house.
10:30 PM BBT: Jessica told Cody that if Josh wants to be civil and enjoy his remaining days in the house, she’s going to support that because she said that she’s not a piece of sh*t.
10:40 PM BBT: Christmas told Josh that the vote is going to be 7-3 to evict Ramses. Josh asked if Kevin knows and will keep him. Christmas said that Kevin does know and plans on voting to keep Josh. Josh told Christmas about what he told Jessica. Christmas said that she doesn’t think that Jessica is going to use the veto. Josh agreed, stating that Jessica doesn’t want to make herself more of a target to other people. Christmas told Josh that everyone is going to tell Jessica that they’re voting to keep Ramses. Christmas added that she’s going to tell Jessica that she’s going to give Josh a sympathy vote since she knows it’ll be a landslide and Josh helped her.
Josh told Christmas that he’s going to lose his sh*t after the votes are announced on Thursday. Christmas said that they have a strategy for the fallout and that she’ll talk to Josh about it later. Josh said that he can’t stand Cody and wants him back out of the house. Josh added that Mark needs to go too. Christmas agreed, stating that she’s been watching Mark for weeks. Christmas added that Mark is an opportunist with no loyalty. Josh said that they have the numbers to get Cody, Jessica, Mark, and Elena out. Christmas said that they just have to win HOH.
12:35 AM BBT: Jessica told Cody that if Alex doesn’t fall in line and vote Josh out like Alex said she would, Jessica said that she’d go after Alex. Cody said that Ramses was a great pawn. Jessica agreed, stating that he’s not allies with anyone, so nobody is upset. Cody said that he’s starting to question Alex and Jason after learning that Jason voted him out. Jessica said that if she knew how Jason voted before nominations, she would have put Alex and Jason up together instead of Josh and Ramses. Cody said that they can’t trust anyone, not even Raven.
