Big Brother 19 – Thursday Night Self Blogging


Woah woah woah, what is this self-blogging shit?

Glad you asked!  Tonight I am going to my daughter’s dance recital. Typically they schedule them in May, but for some reason they did a late June one just to mess with me. Now I’d like to say I want to skip it, but I don’t. I love watching her dance and there is no way I’m going to miss it regardless of Big Brother.

So what that means is that you guys are the bloggers tonight.  Don’t worry, it’s not going to be a very intense episode. It sounds like they’re going to show a lot of clips from between the first day and the first HoH competition and finish the episode with that. Hopefully you guys can comment a lot and keep everyone reading informed on what is going on for those who can’t watch it.


This is the first time I’ve done some self-blogging like this, so don’t let me don’t. I know you won’t!  You guys are amazing and I want to see how you work as a team to get the information out.

When I return, I will watch the show on DVR and update this thread with a few notes, but I am sure most of you will cover all the good stuff already.   After that, we wait 3 hours and then it’s time for feeds!  I will be up for that and have a live feed thread going by 1am est.

Good luck!

    Phil Michelson skipped the U.S. Open for his daughter’s high school graduation, and now Steve does this.
    Have a good time, Steve.

    I wonder how Matt feels about a slightly older woman about 19 yrs his senior? I do sound like a stage 5 stalker don’t I? I cant help it. His smile, silver hair & oh my damn, that body. They didn’t make them like that when I was comin up.
    Ok, I’m done for the time being. No more Matt the Magically Delicious Silver Fox.

    Hi guys and gals! I’ve missed everyone and it’s good to be back on here. I can’t wait to compare thoughts with you guys this season. I’m being optimistic and withholding judgement after only 1 show. These were only my first impressions…
    Some of the cast being over dorm room living age, hearing how people voted quickly and without the stupid one liners, the fact that Paola, I mean Alex impressed me in her comp, hearing Alex tell Monty, I mean Cody, to eat $hit, Paul is the returning player, (if there had to be one) the idea of a temptation themed season and people looking for money instead of a boyfriend.
    Anyone being evicted before they’ve even had time to shower, a returning player being in the game, needing my volume down for the first half hour due to all the fake screaming (getting keys and house entry), temptations that aren’t really temptations (tempting Paul was really just Paul having a chance to assess all 16 houseguests and single-handedly choose who he would like safe and the three on the block weren’t tempted, they just had to make a choice- the only real temptation was the 25k), voting on things that can be real game changers and seeing way too much of Jessicas boobs in her intro. ( Steve, I don’t know if they’re real or not but they would have looked a lot sexier if her top was the right size.)
    I loved Paul last summer and part of the reason was watching him start out clueless and gradually learn the game. He’s coming in as a vet this time and won’t have that “naive” quality. I don’t know how I’ll feel when I can’t root for him as an underdog.
    Alex in the comp, Cameron leaving so soon, Josh not being the 1st to leave, Christmas’ stupid comment in front of Paul, that I may not hate Elana like I thought I would and that Megan may actually be a real Paul groupie.

    2 upcoming votes are to be able to play in a veto even if you arn’t picked and being able to stop/cancel out someone’s eviction.

    Paul is crazy with the mans agreement
    Josh is bat shit crazy G8trgirl sorry to hear your not feeling well

    • NKogNeeTow

      Dan, I was surprised that Paul actually thinks that his handshake with Cody meant something. Cody can’t wait to run him out of the house. The only reason he didn’t put him up tonight is because he didn’t want to come on to strong and he believed that the women will want to get all the men out first. Wasn’t that plan tried already in a previous game?

      • danmtruth

        so true and i still want to see him make a ,, dare i say it ,,, a big move ! He started the cliche battle by saying he is not afraid of drawing blood ,,,, Blood on the hands ,,,

    Wow if looks could kill…. Im not sure about Cody.

  14. BBBonbon62

    Cody, Matt and Mark. Who would’ve thunk it??? Lmao…so predictable.

    • BBBonbon62

      Still a big Matt fan. Cody not so much and Mark not really sure about him yet.

    • NKogNeeTow

      Did you hear when Cody referred to Christmas, Dominique, Raven and Jessica as “Babes”. Then referred to Alex, Megan and Jillian as “The Outside Chicks”.

      Matt teaming up with Cody…NOOOOO
      Mark teaming up with Cody…NOOOOO

      Alex and Meech, I mean Megan, already started trying to talk the group into going after Paul. But Paul lives to fight another day.

      Cody: “Megan, I just don’t like you that much.”….THE NERVE!

      • danmtruth

        in watching Cody’s video I could not help but be reminded of James Talks so lovingly of his daughter Only problem is she does not live with him James was behind in his child support before he was on the show Cody for what ever reason did not get custard So back off on pulling the heart strings about his daughter

  20. BBBonbon62

    Omg is Cody predictable. Lets keep all the big boobs in the house and get rid of the more “nerdy” less popular girls. Typical high school big brother play. If your are smart Cody you need to look beyond the outer core, you douche. Oops, sorry but he is just too much.

  21. ingodog

    Why do everyone hate Megan?????? I like her. And why is Cody so contrary all the time? And of course he like the big boobed girls.

    • ElaineB

      I hope Megan can keep her cool and re-group. I think she got singled out unfairly and it just caught fire. I am rooting for the “Outside Chicks”!

      • NKogNeeTow

        Megan already started to breakdown in the DR (Meech). She got singled out when Josh the Over Emotional Hedgehog overheard her remark about getting out all of the “big” guys. He also figured out that some of the ladies had an alliance started. All he really had to do was go to the other guys and tell them what the girls were talking about then sit back and let the rest of them loose on the girls. But I think he singled her out because she’s the one he overheard.

  22. Ann

    Why is it these guys dont like Megan?

    • Jenny

      They did show a clip of her during the first comp where she was saying they should go after the big guys first.. and Josh was there to hear it. I think that’s why he thought she was targeting him.

      • Mel

        Yeah, if you’re going to say something about getting out the big guys, maybe it shouldn’t be while sitting next to a big guy!

      • NKogNeeTow

        @Jenny, it was. He realized Megan and a few others had formed an alliance. When he was lying on the bed crying and Christmas was trying to comfort him, he tried to warn her and told her don’t trust anybody.

      • ElaineB

        Interesting that Josh would warn Christmas about trust…..if I remember the clip, Josh voted to evict her.

      • Jenny

        ElaineB, he did vote to evict her, but then later said he felt really bad about it. Guessing he got to know her a little better and realized he likes her.

    • NKogNeeTow

      @Ann, I don’t because there is something about her that reminds me of Meech. Not the Meech when she was acting semi-smart, but Meech when she was having one of her spells. Just something underlying unstable about her.

  23. Jenny

    I like Jessica so far more than I thought I would. Anybody else think she looks like Ariana Grande + Jennifer Love Hewitt? And Mark is Josh Duhamel + steroids.
    Josh is really unstable and kind of scares me. I mean it’s good that he realized he was wrong and apologized for blowing up at Megan but good golly that dude is not right. WTF made him so paranoid?
    Cody is… anybody remember Eddie Lebec from Cheers? Kinda reminds me of that guy except also a little batcrap crazy. At least he’s interesting to watch.
    Kevin is like a taller version of Joe Pesci. Except I like Joe Pesci better.
    I was annoyed to see Nicole back but glad she was only stopping by. Now I’m wondering if they are going to have vets coming in every week. Ugh.

  24. Ann

    Cody is a real ASSHOLE!!!

    • AIO_7

      “Megan, I just don’t like you that much.”

      • ElaineB

        That comment by Cody during noms was unnecessary. If Cody hopes to win friends and influence people, he is off to a bad start. At this point, pissing off people for no good reason is not smart, because you have no clue who you can trust.

      • NKogNeeTow

        I think sometimes they forget that they are only HOH for A WEEK. After that, he’s thrown back into the lion’s den with the rest of them. But that’s okay. I don’t like him anyway so let him keep digging that grave.

      • ElaineB

        Will be interesting to see how this BIG plan of Cody’s (reminds me of James and his BIG moves) plays out. I thought I would like Cody, but he is just being a jerk! That Silver Fox better distance himself….right Ann? lol.

      • ElaineB

        We will see how Cody’s BIG plan plays out (reminds me of James and his BIG moves). I thought I would like Cody, but he is starting out as a real jerk! Silver Fox better distance himself. Lol.

      • ElaineB

        Sorry for the duplicate remark…loading issue. I didn’t put it in twice because I thought it was so good.

      • NKogNeeTow

        @Elaine, I’m having the same problem with comments loading.

    • BBBonbon62

      He just doesn’t seem like a nice guy. I admire honesty but after 2 days in the house and one of the first people you put up you tell them you just don’t like them. He doesn’t even know her, yet he proclaims he doesn’t like her. Not sure that type of “unsocial” game is gonna work for him. I also feel Mark and Matt are true good guys and may try and distance themselves from Cody’s hostility/negativity. One can dream…..

      • NKogNeeTow

        When Cody first brought up the idea to Matt and Mark, of putting up Paul, Matt didn’t want to do it and he tried to steer Cody away from him. Cody decided to hold Paul for a backdoor. Matt said in the DR that he really likes Paul. I hope they get together and go after Monte 2.0.

      • Mel

        Agree NK, it may be too soon for insulting nicknames but I want to call him Mody very badly!

      • NKogNeeTow

        @Mell, you know me, I get ’em in early…lol. Because I love you, I apologize in advance for all the insulting nicknames I’m going to post :-p

    • Alda

      Ann,I totally agree with you! Cody is a douche bag! He’s not all that,but he sure thinks he is.I want him out of the house sooner than later!

  25. kneeless

    So good to see everyone back here at BBJ! It’s like a big family reunion, we’re all here, excited to chat with each other & by the end of the summer we’ll be ready to be done!

    Not a huge fan a vets returning but since BB felt the need to bring someone back at least it’seems not a repeat of a repeat vet (insert cough, James)! Kind of wish they’do let a fan favorite remain a fan favorite & not bring them back. Oh well.

    Josh is a hot mess! Cody needs to learn the fine art of pretending to like someone. I am glad there’s a bit of age diversity but poor Kevin. He is my age but he is definitely clueless about BB. I am on the fence about the girls, time will tell.

    Glad to be back with everyone for the summer!

    • Jenny

      omg when someone had to tell him who Nicole is???? really???? what is he doing on this show???

    • Alda

      Has Kevin ever watched BB ?

      • Mel

        No, it was obvious in his interview with Jeff that he’s not very familiar. He seems to get the concept of the game but isn’t going to know who past players are. Normally someone that clueless in the game irritates me but I like that he’s older and understands he needs to lay low while still being social. I can handle someone with a fresh take and who doesn’t know much about it as long as they aren’t there to date! Lol

      • ElaineB

        Well since Megan had to run over and tell him who Nicole was, makes it obvious that Kevin is clueless. Kevin is in need of ‘Cliff Notes’ for BB. Lol.

    • NKogNeeTow

      KNEES! I’ve missed you. Glad you’re back 🙂

    I’m Emalea (like emily) and I am 25 years old.
    I’ve been an avid reader of BBJ for about four years now give or take and a BB watcher since i was 16 when my dear mother got me addicted! But this is my first time signing up to be able to comment and not just read them! Super excited about it so heyyyy yall!!!!

    First comment of many this season to come-
    Am i the only one who thinks Josh is batsh!t crazy for calling Megan out with seemingly no merit?? He just seems like a complete nutzo to me!!!!

    • Avatar

      Also since im new to this … how do i get my comment to show in the thread? It currently says awaiting moderation or approval ??

    • Mel

      Welcome Emalea! I think he is too. Actually, from his bio, intro and Jeff interview I think he’s probably very babied and spoiled at home. He may be used to most things going his way and he may not get out of his comfort zone and circle of friends very often. All that translates into batshit crazy once you’re on Big Brother!

    • Gerardo Chen Moonves

      Hi Emalea, welcome! And no, you’re definitely not the only one who thinks Josh is a little (or a lot) nutty, lol. As Paul stated, Josh is a little “intense” for my taste.

    • NKogNeeTow

      WELCOME Emalea! Glad you decided to officially join the group. We look forward to reading your comments/opinions. We get a little crazy in her sometimes but most of us have been together for a while and it’s all in good fun. Now buckle up girl, sit back and enjoy the ride 🙂

    BBBonbon62 totally agree models Vs the OTHERS ,,, back to high school with this group having a hard time finding someone to get behind Megan was called out for saying the SAME thing as Josh ;one group of the same sex is going to target the other
    Lets see if anyone uses the veto Will badass Cody use it on Paul Or will he be all talk like the people last year Cody did drag out the blood on the hands statement already

    • ElaineB

      I see it coming dan….all the hot talk about getting Paul out, backdoor, blah, blah, blah and then pulling out the ‘don’t want to get blood on my hands’ statement at every turn.

      • danmtruth

        just like James last year always talking about big moves Yet always having a reason not to do it ; not the right time ; the house wants someone else

  29. Mel

    I could have went years without seeing Nicole and been just fine. (That’s my own issue though) I did like Kevins blank reaction to her and Paul because it was funny compared to the jumping and screaming from the others.
    Josh seems like what you would get if Josea and Devon from bb16 had a child. The conversation with Christmas was Devon whining about misjudging Donnie and Brittany all over again.We knew he would be the 1st to cry when he talked about being all business and cut throat before it started. It’s pathetic for a guy to want an audience to go off on someone but whisper and want privacy to apologize. (Megan did make a dumb comment though)
    When I see and hear Cody…he’s Monte! He seems more intelligent but an ass just the same! He isn’t as tough as he likes to talk either since he didn’t nominate any of the men he says he doesn’t like. There were plenty to pick from. I do like Mark more than I thought I would.I think he’s more than a muscle head. So far, I’m sticking with my first impressions which was that Josh is a big baby nut job, Cody’s an a-hole and Jessicas swim top would look better if it supported her boobs!

    • Gerardo Chen Moonves

      I found Monte a self-absorbed, self-important, narcissist (and he REALLY pissed me off when he lied about the Justin shower incident), but for some reason I’m finding Cody much more insufferable than Monte. Every time he appears on my screen I’m already rolling my eyes, and we’re only on night 2. He just seems to think he is so much better than everyone else. Hopefully, just like Monte, Cody’s ego will pave the way to his early exit.

      • NKogNeeTow

        I swear Gerardo, it’s like you were reading my mind. This is only night 2 and I loathe Cody already. I just don’t like people like him, bullies. And I have the same reaction when he comes on my scree too, except I also hiss a little bit.

      • Mel

        I think you’re both right. Perhaps I’m not being fair to Monte because although I couldn’t stand him, I did give him the benefit of the doubt…which was maybe there was a farm animal or two somewhere in his family tree. Maybe I’m the only one who thought that and I shouldnt share every thought I have! Cody seems like a more intelligent person than Monte which makes his attitude and behavior even more disgusting.

      • Gerardo Chen Moonves

        OMG Mell, “a farm animal or two somewhere in his family tree”… I just screamed! LMAO!

      • Mel

        Gerardo, it’s the only reason I could ever come up with. Lol

    • ElaineB

      Oh Mell, I thought Josh (who is very Devin-like) was going to pull a page out of the Jozea/Devin handbook and call a house meeting (LOL) to publicly out Megan and her supposed horrible deed.

    • danmtruth

      perfect call Mell on the love child of Josae and Devon being Josh

  30. Colby

    In all fairness, it would be really hard to be the first HOH and decide who to put up. They all barely know each other so they pretty much have to rely on their first impressions.

  31. Lynn

    I’m new to this comments section, so hello, all! I know I’m in the minority, but I find myself liking Cody (he has a very slim chance of winning lol). But, I just like his more mature, no-nonsense approach. It’s refreshing vs the usual fake and juvenile, frat house characters who have been the usual suspects. It’s early, but I’m thinking Alex will do well. I’m an early Dominque fan too!

    • AIO_7

      Welcome, Lynn.

    • NKogNeeTow

      WELCOME Lynn! You are our 2nd new Board Member tonight and we are very happy to have you. Please feel free to comment and state your opinions. We don’t always agree but we try to always get along and respect each other.

      I don’t like Cody(Monte 2.0) because he came out to nasty and strong right out the gate. He pretty much showed me his true colors the first night. I’m hoping like hell that he doesn’t win, that he doesn’t even stay, but it’s early and you never know.

      Again, welcome and have fun!

    • ElaineB

      Hi Lynn~ Take a seat and buckle up with us for this BB season. We have fun and lots of comments from different points of view. Makes it more interesting for sure.

  32. Shivani33

    Kevin gave Josh some valuable advice and really helped to cool him down enough so that Josh went and apologized to Megan. I hope that Josh adapts to being away from home and learns to play BB for long enough to take away a good experience. But he has been his one & only worst enemy so far. Megan wasn’t talking about him when she met with her little alliance to discuss going after the big guys. She meant big threats, not just meatheads. Cody is the full Monte, but maybe a little smarter. He chose to nominate noncontroversial Megan and Whatshername…Jillian. These nominees don’t expose his real intention to get rid of Paul, but instead target women who don’t meet his Babe standards. Well, Cody isn’t all that. It’d be really nice if he screws himself asap.

    • AIO_7

      If I remember correctly, Shiv., Monte was gone after 2 weeks.

    • NKogNeeTow

      @Shi: Lordy, when you said “Cody is the full Monty”, something else came to mind and I was laughing my azz off…lol. And calling Jillian “Whathername”, I’m having the same trouble remembering who is who. Half the time I have to scroll up to the top to look at the pictures to see who I’m talking about. For some reason, I don’t like any of these women at all. I’m hoping one or more will grow on me but so far, nada.

  33. AIO_7

    Well, time for BBAD and the feeds starting. I’ll try to keep you updated.

  34. kneeless

    Watching BBAD, sounds like Meagan left the house. Can ànyone confirm?
