Big Brother 19 – We Have A House!

Hi, everyone! Steve’s on the road right now, so you’re stuck with me.


The BB house was just revealed! I know a lot of people look forward to this almost as much as who is in the cast, so here goes:

The first bedroom is the “Money Room,” because there’s framed money on the walls. Actually, Julie called it the Power Room, but there’s money on the walls, so it’s the money room to me. I’m going to guess it’s for people to remember what they’re actually playing for. It’s hard to remember sometimes when people think the game is all about the sun and boys.


(sorry it’s blurry. I’m on my work computer and it really sucks)

And now I HATE THIS! I don’t really mention it, since I don’t blog and Steve does, but I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE showmances, especially obviously fake showmances that are pushed down our throats (*ahem* James and Natalie). Well, they have a room for people to remember what they’re playing for (the money room), BUT they also have a room for people who want to completely forget that their brains don’t reside in their pants. They have a SHOWMANCE room. Let me repeat that: a showmance room! Observe:

All the beds are double beds and Julie specifically said it was for cuddling. Now, I am not the romantic person in my relationship. I leave that up to Steve. I already despise this room.

The lounge, for some reason, is full of green apples. I guess that’s if the Houseguests get hungry while plotting evil schemes or cuddling.

Now for the bathroom. I seriously want to live in here. I would say, “Screw the showmance room! Let me sleep in the bathroom!” and I’m not even kidding. Grab an apple from the lounge, curl up on a bathroom couch, and I would be good to go. Wake me when the season is over.

It’s PURPLE, you guys! And velvet!!!

Now for the HoH room. The theme for the HoH room is “Greed,” which is perfect for it, but I think it’s kind of ugly. Too much yellow and gaudiness…and this is coming from someone who likes purple velvet.

The backyard looks exactly the same as it does every year, but I’ll post (blurry) pics anyway.

That’s the pool table, in case you couldn’t tell. I can barely tell and I’m the one who took the screenshot.

The blurry gym where people will work out for a few days and then forget about.

And, last, but not least, the teeny pool where I really wish I was right now:


Don’t forget to sign up to our LIVE FEEDS to see all the action happening! If you love showmances, money, inflatable swans…this season will have it all!

I actually kind of enjoyed this. Steve might be out of a job.

    Not liking the showmance room. however. it could get interesting on the feeds.

    Thanks for the update, Melinda.

    It’s like a seven deadly sins themed house! Lol

      You’re right, Amy! I guess what threw me off was the gluttony part of it. If I was going to be a glutton about something, it sure wouldn’t be apples. However, throw some potato chips on those walls and I would have at it.

      • Renee

        Maybe the apples are representing temptation – like Adam and Eve????

      • Ann

        Maybe they should count the money & the apples because it could be a couple of the questions to study for one of the competitions. I would do it secretly hoping nobody else thought of it.

      • Renee

        I just looked at more pictures of the house on another site. There is an apple theme in several rooms and a snake theme as well. The Money room has glass apples on the coffee table and 2 pillows with apples & a snake. There is a statue of a king cobra on a coffee table between 2 red couches. There are also 2 wooden trees in the house with apples; an apple float in the pool and loose apples on the coffee table outside.

      • Ann

        @renee, very good observation. You should be on Big Brother because you sure do know the types of things to look for. I would be willing to bet everything you talked about is going to be in some of the mental comps. Good job!!!

    Great job Melinda! Like the HGs need a room to be reminded of showmances, or even be encouraged to get in one .

    • Avatar

      No kidding. The second they enter the house, “Omg, look at all the hot guys!” “Oh, man, she is so hot!” Gah. I really need to apply one of these years. I’ll be the most hated person, but I wouldn’t even care. My mouth has no filter haha.

      • Ann

        Me too Melinda, i’d probably be the first one evicted because I have a hard time biting my tounge & I cant stand a whole lot of silliness.

    Awesome job. Love the bathroom 🙂

    maybe im losing my memory but when did the Hottub get attached to th pool?… which season?…☺…

    • Renee

      I remember it being attached last season because when they would pan the cameras out we could see people sitting in both areas. Conversations were taking place about each other and I could never understand how they didn’t think the people in the other didn’t hear them. I’m not sure what season it actually became attached but I do remember it being separate early on.

    • ElaineB

      Good observation Lostie. I didn’t even connect that at some point the hot tub and pool were separated. I have little observational skills, so no house trivia challenges for me. Lol.

    Haha! Good Job Melinda Beans! The bathroom looks SO different! I guess since we had 2 seasons with the same decor, I got used to it!

  7. Ann

    Nice job Melinda, thumbs up:)

    “I hope you like Apple Pie.”

    The Apple theme reminds me how much I want to see that movie.

    Great job Melinda and HELLO BBJ!!! I am excited for season 19 and chatting away my summer with all of yall!!! We lost my father in law last Summer and it has been a hard on my husband missing his best friend. ♡

    The house is pretty awesome and let’s hope we have some real competitions that are challenging and entertaining. The houseguests look promising!! Showmance… ehhhh (eye roll)

    Anyways, I am excited and can’t wait!!!

    • Ann

      @ShoeLoveer, I’m so sorry for your family’s loss. I know from first hand experience how hard losing your father is. My heart truly goes out to your husband.

      Hopefully this BB summer will be a great one. I’ll probably be the first one to get mad at something going on in the house & say im done knowing full well I cant turn my back on the game. Lol
      Im hoping for an interesting BB summer. See you here on Wednesday night 🙂

    “Starting on Sunday, July 2 at 8/7c, the Houseguests will discover the Den of Temptation, a room that holds yet another enticement that, if accepted, will potentially unleash a game-breaking consequence upon the entire house.

    Even better, America will get to vote for the Houseguests they want to send into the Den of Temptation, which lets fans influence the game in spectacular Big Brother fashion.”

    3 days til the big day & counting down!!!

    • Renee

      I’m here Ann! Very excited too and looking forward to chatting with everyone all season. Thank goodness for All Access! I won’t be able to watch tonight because I have to pick up my daughter at the airport and won’t be home until after midnight. I look forward to seeing what everyone thinks after the show tonight! Enjoy!!!

  14. Ann

    Today is the big day guys. I cant wait to see who I like & who’s going to get on my nerves from the get go. I already have a pretty good idea after watching their interviews but I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt until we actually get to see their real personalities come out as we get into the game.

  15. AIO_7

    Well, I signed in with the feeds; nothing but fish for now.

    BTW: does anyone know who will be carrying BBAD this year? POP again?

  16. Ann

    1 & 1/2 hrs til start time.
