While we’re just a day out from the veto ceremony, the majority of game talk today will be about the plans for the coming weeks and the blindside plan that is still in effect for Thursday’s eviction, as Cody and Jessica continue to have no idea that Josh won’t be the one going home. If they somehow get wind, tomorrow’s veto ceremony will get a lot more interesting.
10:20 AM BBT: Josh told Matt that they all saw how quickly Mark flipped on them when Cody walked back into the house. Matt said that Mark flipped immediately. Josh said that he doesn’t respect Mark because he has been trying to hide behind someone else and ride people’s coattails.
10:50 AM BBT: Jessica told Cody that if Alex wins HOH and they went over to Alex’s side, it would be 6 on Alex’s side and 6 on Paul’s side. Jessica added that if Paul were to win HOH, they could go to his side and then ideally Paul would put up two people from Alex’s side. Jessica told Cody that if he wins HOH, they’d have to choose a side. Cody said that if he gets HOH, his only goal will be to backdoor Paul, adding that he’d possibly put up a pawn like Raven. Jessica said that they’d have to solidify an alliance with the other side of the house to get Paul out.
Cody told Jessica that regardless of who gets HOH, she should tell them that she has the temptation so that an HOH isn’t wasted. Cody added that the only person who would want people to waste their HOH is Paul so that the temptation is over. Jessica said that she’d keep it vague by saying that her temptation is better than Paul’s and that she basically controls both nominees. Jessica said that she wants people to be so fearful of her temptation to the point of them wanting to work with her. Jessica said that she trusts Paul more than Alex, but Cody said that he doesn’t trust either. Cody said that they could bring in Christmas because she has been looking for someone to trust.
11:35 AM BBT: Kevin, Mark, and Paul become have-nots for dropping out of the HOH competition first.
12:20 PM BBT: Kevin told Jason that the only reason Cody was brought back into the house is because he has a romance going, he and Jessica are good looking people, and that it’s good TV. Kevin added that “they”, presumably he means production, knew that the weak guys in the house, which Kevin said were Matt and Mark, would follow Cody. Kevin said that those two went from talking bad about Cody to hugging him like nothing ever happened.
12:45 PM BBT: Matt told Raven that after Josh doesn’t get evicted, he’s going to cause a scene. Matt explained that Josh said that he’s going to antagonize Mark, which Matt says will make Mark lose it.
3:20 PM BBT: Josh told Kevin that Cody came into the house with a new personality. Kevin agreed, telling Josh that Cody said that he had 3 interviews and each talked about how he was good athletically, but had no social game. Josh said that he’s not buying Cody’s social game this time either.
3:25 PM BBT: Matt asked Raven who she would put up if she won HOH. Raven said that she would put up Josh and Mark since they promised Cody and Jessica a week of safety for not putting them up. Matt agreed.
3:55 PM BBT: Mark opens in the double-or-nothing have-not temptation box while in private with only Elena. He got the two week extension.
4:05 PM BBT: Jessica told Cody that she feels like if they were to team up with Jason and Alex, they could demolish the house, but said that she can’t stand Alex. Jessica said that if they went back to their original alliance, they would be back at the bottom of the totem pole. Jessica said they’d be on an even playing field with Alex and Jason. Cody said that was assuming that they could even trust them. Cody said that Christmas has been the one seeking loyalty from someone and he said that he has felt that Christmas has aimed some of that towards him.
Cody told Jessica that for his sanity, he wants Josh sent out this week and said that he doesn’t ever want to see Josh interact with Jessica again. Jessica told Cody that it’s gone through her head a couple times that this is all just an act and that people are actually planning on getting Josh out. Cody said that if that happens, he’s going to win HOH out of pure rage. Jessica said that Josh’s crying is what makes her believe that Josh actually is the target. Cody questioned how much more people are going to be willing to take Raven. Jessica said that Dominique told her that less and less people are willing to throw it for Raven.
4:50 PM BBT: Raven told Christmas and Paul that Alex and Kevin are both pissed with Mark for doing the double-or-nothing temptation in private.
4:55 PM BBT: Paul told Alex that Mark is a bitch for the way he handled the double-or-nothing temptation. Alex agreed, saying that they need to send him home. Paul said that he’s still 100% on board with getting Ramses out over Josh. Raven said that Matt is too and Alex confirmed that Jason is too.
5:00 PM BBT: Matt told Christmas and Raven that if Mark doesn’t win this next HOH, he’s going to be going up. Christmas said that if Mark does get booted, Elena will be all over Cody and Jessica. Matt said that he thinks that Elena would come running back to them three.
5:05 PM BBT: Josh told Matt and Raven that he was wanting to work with them from the beginning, but just thought that they already had an alliance that was set in stone. Josh said that moving forward, Raven and Matt won’t have to worry about his vote or him coming after them. Christmas told Josh that he needs to act like he doesn’t know how he ended up staying.
6:25 PM BBT: Ramses asked Jessica if she’s at all thinking about using the veto. Jessica said that she’d prefer to leave nominations the same, but said that if she senses that he’s in danger after she talks with people, she’ll use the veto to pull Ramses off. Jessica said that she hasn’t heard any red flags yet and said that it seems like everyone is on board for a unanimous vote to send Josh home. Ramses said that if he was off the block, he would for sure vote for Josh to go home.
6:35 PM BBT: Jessica told Cody that she is getting paranoid about the vote because keeping Josh would terrorize them. Jessica added that she’s considering using the veto, pulling Ramses off, and putting up Alex in his place. Cody said that he’d rather her leave the nominations the same and they just ride it out, adding that there is nothing they can gain by stirring the pot by putting up someone else. Jessica said that she doesn’t want to look back on this HOH and realize that she wasted it. Cody said that they should just leave Ramses up and that he thinks that Jessica is more paranoid than she needs to be. Jessica said that if there is a plan to blindside them, it doesn’t matter what they do because they will be the targets next week regardless.
Jessica told Cody that Ramses has nothing to offer the other side and said that if she was apart of that side, that is how she’d be thinking too. Cody said that Ramses was apart of the scheme to get him out, so he said that he wouldn’t even mind Ramses going home, but Jessica said that she needs Josh out this week. Cody said that putting up Alex is putting up a juicy target. Jessica said that she doesn’t care who goes home between Josh and Alex. Cody said that he believes she should keep the nominations the same. Jessica said that she’s going to talk to Paul and that if Paul can’t look her in the eye and say that it’s going to be a unanimous vote, she’s going to use the veto on Ramses. Cody said that if she uses the veto, Jessica will look like a wild card, then people will see her as being just the same as Cody. Cody added that if she is going to take the risk of putting someone up as a replacement, she should just put Paul up. Jessica said that they wouldn’t have the votes.
7:00 PM BBT: Jessica told Elena that she needs her to be honest with her and asked if she’s going to be blindsided at eviction. Elena said no, asking Jessica if she’s just paranoid or if she has heard something. Jessica said that it’s a little bit of paranoia. Jessica said that she’d feel guilty if Ramses went home on her watch and doesn’t want that. Elena said that she has spoke to Matt and Raven who have both said that they’d vote how she votes and said that Paul is also voting out Josh. Elena said that even if Alex and Jason don’t vote against Josh, they’ll still have the numbers. Jessica told Elena that she feels better about it all now and thanked her.
7:25 PM BBT: Jessica told Cody that Elena gave her word that she is voting to evict Josh and said that Mark and Paul are both on board to do the same. Cody said that if Jessica keeps the nominations the same, everyone will vote Josh out and the rebuilding that they did will have worked. Cody added that if Ramses does go home, they’re going to have to fight for their life every week. Jessica said that if she hasn’t used her temptation by the fourth week, she wants to make a deal with the nominees to use it for them. Cody said that it wouldn’t make any sense because they’d just be targeted next after she did that.
7:35 PM BBT: Alex told Jason that Cody might be truthful, but Cody believes everything that Jessica tells him. Alex said that once everything blows up after the eviction, they have to act like they don’t know what happened. Jason said that he can do that. Alex said that he and Paul are the only two people that she trusts.
7:40 PM BBT: Jessica told Cody that it’s going to be interesting to see what happens when Paul wins HOH, questioning if Batman and Superman will align or will they kill each other again. Cody said that Paul wouldn’t approach him if Paul won HOH. Cody asked Jessica if she would want him to take out Alex. Jessica said that she wants him to take out Alex three weeks ago. Cody said that if he took out Alex, that would solidify some trust with Mark and Matt.
7:55 PM BBT: Paul and Alex agreed that Jessica and Cody are the biggest idiots ever if they keep the nominations the same. Paul told Alex and Jason that they could get Mark and Elena back to being their b*tch next week by putting Jessica and Cody up since Mark and Elena will go wherever the numbers are. Paul said that while they do this, Mark and Elena won’t have any idea that they all went them two out too.
8:05 PM BBT: Jason told Paul and Mark that nobody feels as bad for Christmas as he does and said that he wants to embrace her, but said that he can’t because out of everyone in the house, it’s Christmas who he can’t stand. Mark said that he doesn’t think that Jason is the only one who feels like that. Jason said that if he wins HOH, it’ll have to be Christmas who he targets.
8:15 PM BBT: Kevin asked Paul what happens if Jessica uses the veto on Ramses. Paul shushed him. Kevin questioned what happens if Ramses is taken off and Matt is put up. Kevin said that they would have to take Matt out to keep Josh.
8:35 PM BBT: Josh began talking to the cameras again. He said that he’s on his second day of pretending to act miserable, but said that he slipped up this morning because he was happy. Josh said that he can’t wait until Thursday because once the votes come in, he plans on calling out Mark. Josh said that he needs to pull Ramses into a room alone and act like he’s defeated and sad. He said that if he wins HOH next week, he’s going to put Mark on the block.
9:10 PM BBT: Josh told Ramses that he knows that he’s going home and that everyone has been waiting for this opportunity. Josh said that he couldn’t even get out of bed this morning and that he’s trying to find a way to leave the house while positive and happy. Josh told Ramses that he won’t be campaigning against him or saying anything bad. Josh said that Ramses just needs to stay strong and keep doing what he’s doing because he’s doing great.
9:50 PM BBT: Jessica told Cody that Elena is telling everyone on her side of the house that she thought Jessica was going to put Alex up next to Josh. Cody said that he thinks that Mark is one of Alex’s biggest targets. Jessica agreed, stating that Mark has a bigger target on his back than he realizes.
11:15 PM BBT: Paul told Kevin that Jessica isn’t going to use the veto because they’re stupid. Paul added that he knows Ramses is Kevin’s buddy, but said that Ramses is sneaky. Kevin said that Ramses isn’t his buddy and he never talks game to him.
11:25 PM BBT: Mark told Cody that he doesn’t think the vote will be unanimous because someone is going to want to stir the pot, but said that Josh is gone for sure because nobody wants him in the house anymore. Mark asked if Ramses will be their next target. Cody said that he wants to get HOH first, then evaluate. Cody said that right now, all he wants is for the couples to be safe because he said that it would be cruel if they were split up before jury.
12:15 AM BBT: Jessica told Cody that this is the second week in a row where the entire house is unified behind getting one person out.
12:35 AM BBT: Kevin told Jason that if someone is taken off the block, Jessica and Cody are going to make a big mistake because they’re going to send home whoever the replacement is, whether it be Matt, Mark, Raven, or Elena.
1:00 AM BBT: Jessica told Cody that Elena implied repeatedly to her that people are going to vote however Elena wants them to and that Elena wants Josh out since Elena has a good relationship with everyone in the house.
