Live HoH Competition Thread


That was a pretty predictable eviction episode, but what isn’t predictable is who will win the HoH tonight.

It is the wall competition which typically goes to people with smaller frames, so really don’t expect Mark to win haha.

Also – watch along with the live feeds for free!


And buy me a coffee, or a steak!

Still On Wall:

  • Alex
  • Dominique
  • Elena
  • Jessica
  • Jason
  • Josh
  • Kevin
  • Mark
  • Matt
  • Ramses
  • Raven


  • 7:00 pm – Raven’s makeup is scary looking!
  • 7:10 pm – They’re playing word games while on the wall.  The OTT was far more serious when they did these comps
    • Josh falls
  • 7:20 pm – Mark is down
    • Random shot of Dom because why not?
  • 7:30 pm – For some reason the cam doesn’t want to show Jess or Elena
    • Someone has turned on Paul as he is non-stop talking trying to get the sound bytes for the show
  • 7:38 pm – Raven drops. Surprising she made it this far with her foot.  She may have won this if healthy
    • Meanwhile, 100 year old Kevin is still hanging in there
  • 7:50 pm – No updates.  Jess has laser focus though
    • Random – add me on snap because I want more snap friends – stevebsfan
    • Picture of the wall at an angle. Ramses is not doing well
    • And just as I typed that, he fell
  • 7:55 pm – Jason took the James position of squatting
    • Kevin falls
  • 8;00 pm – More are pulling a James
  • 8:05 pm – Matt is struggling
    • And he’s down
  • 8:15 pm – The remaining 5 are hanging in there
    • Jessica fell
    • Dom fell right after
  • 8:25 pm – The final 3 are still up.
    • Elena, Alex, and Jason
  • 8:30 pm – They make some deals for safety and all drop.
    • Alex wins HoH

    Ahh the battle back. I’m conflicted on what I want to happen here. I mean it’d be nice for Cameron to actually get a shot to play so I wouldn’t be mad if he came back. I also hate to admit it but if Cody came back I wouldn’t be mad because drama. It would be better if Jessica was out next though so they aren’t back in the house together. Anyway I’m rambling what do you guys think?

    • Avatar

      I think Cody has burned too many bridges. If he battles back, he has to hope either he, Jessica, or Christmas win hoh. Otherwise he’ll be back on the block.
      Jillian might be interesting, because she was betrayed. I wonder who who she would align with.

      • ElaineB

        If Jessica is still in the house, I don’t think Cody can change his game enough to make a difference long term. They are toxic as a pair. As I saw Cody’s conversation with Christmas on the show, though he was trying to help Jessica’s game, it looked like he might have influence, if by himself, back in the house.

    • Seattle Kari

      I am really hoping for a miracle and Cameron gets another chance. The way he was let out in the beginning it was simply unfair…

      • Kayla88

        Ya he’s my preferred option especially being such a big fan of the show finally getting your dream and not even lasting a day, really got the shit sandwich there

        Morgana (810 comments)

        So, do you think like a second battleback?

      • Mel

        No I was thinking they do the battle back but the winner has to wait and see if the Temptation is taken before they’re allowed to get back in. Of course they’re going to take the Temptation -they’ve taken them all and after the frogs being a safe consequence, I don’t think anyone would worry about taking it.

        They should definitely take it, but I hope it means a double eviction the next week, just because I find double eviction nights highly entertaining,

      It allows the winner the ability to stop an eviction.

      The next temptation will maybe stop a house guest from reentering. GIVE IT TO JOSH!!!!!! lol

  5. danmtruth

    just pointing out I said Josh out before 3
    could be they pick one HG to battle the winner of the battle back Winner stays loser goes home or HOH gets the final say if the battle back winner comes back So many ways to do it

    Not for nothing but since Cameron might actually have a shot at coming back and was at least “in the house”, shouldn’t his image be at the top grey’d out as an evictee?

  8. Mel

    I like Paul but I think it’s stupid the for half the competition he’s had an entire camera devoted to him

    • Avatar

      I agree, I like Paul but almost the entire show is dedicated to a few people the rest are almost strangers other than knowing their names and a few min of airtime if they are speaking to the right person…obvious bias

    Just thought of an interesting scenario…..

    If Jess wins HoH odds are she will go after Christmas since they don’t play well together. Josh would also have a target on him.


    Wonder how production would handle that one if Christmas is on the block as far as the PoV is concerned. Pretty obviously rigged if the PoV ended up being something non-physical that actually gave her a shot.

    I honestly think that Josh has been to “in your face” of late and is creating too much drama. I think there’s a good chance that Alex, Jess, or even Mark might opt to put him up because he’s been too obnoxious. But this whole Christmas thing is an all new one. Wonder if CBS has her under guard to prevent anyone from getting insider info to her. Talk about an unfair advantage. I mean, I like her spirit and all but c-mon – she was the one literally doing horseplay when the injury occurred. In my book if you can’t stick around exceptions should not be made. What is Megan suddenly decided “Ok, I went and talked to my doc and I am perfectly ok now – can I come back in. I was just out getting a little treatment….”
    Can of worms potential because they changed the rules to accommodate one player.

    • Avatar
      Morgana (810 comments)

      I would think Christmas would be sequestered in the hospital The difference between Megan & Christmas is that Megan left willingly. She took herself out. Christmas didn’t, the Christmas situation is uncharted territory for production, so I honestly think they are winging it.

    • jimbo

      I’ve been saying since she got hurt that it’s total BS. Jeff Probst would have booted her already. She was literally riding a dancing asshole around the house…not wise. So, those is the breaks.

    • ElaineB

      Josh is a man of extremes, either sobbing or yelling smack to another HG across the room. That huge emotional range should make him a big target. Not a fan of him at this point, so that is okay. Megan chose to leave. I have read both sides of the Christmas situation. I agree with Morgana, that there is some winging it by Production, since the injury is so serious. As we saw on the show, at this point they gave Christmas the choice to stay or go. They certainly aren’t in a rush for her to leave.

    Elena says she can stay up there all night.Who would have thought? Kudos.

    Off subject but – Anyone else notice Raven has what looks like a medical implant on her stomach next to her belly button on her left side? Just wondering if anyone else saw it or knows what it is? I paused my DVR in the last few minutes of the live show as there was a great close view of it but i cant figure out what it is???

      Morgana (810 comments)

      It’s an implant that helps her digestion. I’m sure somebody else can give you more details though.

    • LindsayB

      Just watch. She talks about it every 5 minutes. It’s her terminal digestive disease. She talks about it while eating junk food non stop.

    • Avatar

      I was curious too, so I looked her up. I’m new to posting here and looked for FAQ’s to see if links are allowed. I couldn’t seem to find that info, so I hope they are. Lol. I’ll put spaces between the link in case it’s not. Hopefully, that will allow it to go through.

      There are several articles about her. She has gastroparesis.

        Thank you, hun! Although I’ve never commented before, I do visit it a LOT! This is a great blog for BB and I’d probably say my favorite. It takes a special type of devotion to stay on the live feeds and then make posts for so those who don’t have the feeds…get their fix. :D. It always seems to be the most current/up to date info and quicker than others I’ve ran across.

        Massive respect to those that donate their time!

        It was very sweet of you to take the time to welcome me, as well. =). That is appreciated, too. Hope to catch you around sometime. You have a wonderful day!

    Battle back would be interesting with Cody and Josh

    • Avatar

      I think it would be interesting with Cody and Jessica. Would he give it to her or make her lose?

      • Avatar

        I said on here a few days ago about the whole Cody/Jessica – Brendon/Rachel thing. I don’t think Cody would give up his game for Jessica like Brendon did for Rachel. Cody has to understand he is the better competitor of the two who could fight harder in the house and possibly last longer.

    • Avatar

      If they evict Christmas, cody’s all but garaunteed to come back, none of those others can beat him physically and he wants to get back to his girlfriend.

      • Mimi Ryan

        As I recall on the battleback, it is a 3 part comp. Those 3 parts = Physical, Mental and I think a combo in the end, where the final elimination happens. Cody might want back in, I’m not so sure he has a clue how to move forward. I loved it when he told us and Julie – Jessica said he is the worst player in BB History. He doesn’t have a social game at all and he is so in his head . . . So no I don’t want him back in. But, hey if he wins this. Bravo to him.

  35. Mimi Ryan

    I’m here on the West Coast, so I’m late to this party . . . . So Cody ;(. Damn Dude . . . if anyone needs to stop talking it’s him. He doesn’t remember anything he says. I love Christmas, but she voted against Rameses? WTH? And now Cody will compete to come back. Wow.

    • Renee

      I was wondering the same thing. I haven’t seen the feeds at all this season and have to always catch up what’s happening through everyone here. Anyone know why Christmas voted for Ramses instead of Cody?

      • LindsayB

        Not yet. She hasn’t been back in yet to hear her talk about it. I’m wondering if Paul asked her to throw a random vote to stir things up. Or she just might be totally messed up on pain meds.

      • ElaineB

        I saw the convo where Paul asked Kevin to do the shake-things-up vote, but the Christmas vote surprised me.

    • Mimi Ryan

      The one thing in the feeds was where he went to Christmas and tried to salvage Jess’s game. Christmas might have been throwing him a bone. Christmas is incredibly smart and capable. I love her game play. She might also, might have counted on the battle back . . . .

    how soon till Paul uses the people bounce checks in BB all the time
    Alex is going to be a hard sell to convince who to put up on the block She has her own mind

    • Avatar

      She already plans to nominate Jessica and Ramses. Which irritates me. Poor Ramses. Remember when was in an alliance with Alex? This is why i don’t like Alex, she has no loyalty.

      • LindsayB

        Poor Ramses? All he did for the first couple weeks was slither around like a snake sharing info with both sides. There hasn’t been a big call out on him or anything but he definitely spent too much time trying to be a snitch than trying to form relationships. Poor Ramses my ass.

    • Avatar

      As long as he gives credit to Mike Boogie, he can use the bounce checks line. I guess some people who are new the show will think how witty Paul is at he came up with that line.

    Was Jessica peeing as the comp started?

  40. Shivani33

    Lots of impulsive talk, jitters and some frantic energy in the BB house. Alex talking over a ragtag enclave of very inexperienced contestants and not listening. Kevin playing spy for Paul. Disagreements about preferred nominees. Paul more or less sitting back and assessing it all.

    • NKogNeeTow

      The whispering is driving me crazy Shi. I keep having to strain to hear them. Its gotten on my nerves so much, I just have the Feeds running in the background while I do some work in the computer. They should make another rule….NO WHISPERING!

      Know what else? Kevin is a killer..or at least has the killer instinct. He, N-N, Josh and Ram were talking. He told them he’s looking forward to the next competition. Josh asked him why. He said because by then there will be 1 less person in the house. He also keeps repeating over and over, that Ram taught him about the game. Kind of sounds like he’s reminding people how well Ram knows the game. He claimed that he doesn’t know about the game, yet argued with Alex about who she should put up next and why. Now if you’re a novice, how did you come up with that logic? I’m telling you, everything he says goes right over their heads. A few are starting to catch on, but even they just wind up shrugging it off. He’s skating dangerously close to being caught, but he talks so fast and so much trash, he could probably talk his way out of it. He’s more like Paul than any of the realizes.

      • Mello_One

        Uh huh…Our little Kevin is a Sneaky One. But Ram, Jason, Alex, & I believe Mark are kinda on to him. But you’re right, he is going to slip up sooner, rather than later!

  41. Shivani33

    Paul was picking Dom’s brain tonight, too. He came at her with respectful interest, while she hung herself by constantly giving off being a special sort of know-it-all.

  42. Avatar

    I am excited for the battle back! If Jessica is voted out will her and cody actually battle back or will they run off into the sunset to live happily ever after? Josh calling Cody a meatball was hilarious, I can’t help but wonder why. They need to get Dom out sooner rather than later, she is a sponge floater, soaking up all the information in the house while floating through just waiting to use her info to take over the house. Did anybody else think Cody’s interview with Julie was kinda funny?

  43. LindsayB

    Finally watching last night’s eviction episode. I actually liked Cody a bit. I kind of threw up a bit just thinking that but it’s still true. He’s finally showing some game thought instead of just being an ass. Also, he seems (gag) really genuine with his caring and concern for Jessica (double gag). Moral of the story: I can appreciate a few more things in Cody than I did before and it seems like if he were to come back he would adjust a little bit to actually play the game instead of trying to strongarm his whole way thru. At this point I wouldn’t mind him coming back (hopefully with Jess out of the house) and see him team up with Paul. I could see them being able to have a strong partnership. It would be full of paranoia but would be cool to watch them take down the sheep together and then battle it out.

    • Wendy

      I agreee after seeing Cody and his interview with Julie. He is much more likeable. I do agree him and Paul would be a great team up if he wins the battle back. With the bro code and the way they have respect for each other will make then an unstoppable team.

      • LindsayB

        His reaction, or lack thereof, when told about the battleback was pretty telling. I think he realized he screwed up really bad and truly couldn’t process the idea of actually getting another chance. When he said he was surprised that he had people cheering for him when he walked out I saw more self awareness in him than I have this whole time. Without knowing who the last person is that competing next week I have to say I’ll be rooting for Cody.

      • Avatar

        He played the game in a way he thought would be best for him. Hindsight is 20/20 if he gets back in it will be interesting on how he plays this time around. I think if Cody and Paul put the past behind them and maybe play off a little hostility with one another they could rule the house in secret, taking each other to the final 2.

        I have always wondered what is so great about making it to jury?

      • LindsayB

        They make more money if they get to jury.

    • Mel

      Lindsay, Agree. I couldn’t help but like Cody last night and felt this strange need to go take a shower because it had that effect on me. Remember last year when the majority of the people couldn’t stand Victor but he came back and changed his ways? I’m not saying Cody’s going to end AFP but people do like his honesty and bold play so he could aquire some fans that no one ever thought he would have. Lol

      • LindsayB

        I despised both victor and Paul at first last year and ended up rooting for them to go to the end. It’s crazy how they can change things up in there resulting in huge changes of support from us voyeurs. I think the key to Cody having success if he comes back is for Jessica to be gone. She’s so unlikable that it would hurt his game and it’s just disgusting watching them together. My favorite players in the game are the ones that can truly adapt to the ever changing dynamics without being wishy washy. Its completely different to gather info and change strategy than it is to just float from power to power. Cody showed me tonight that he could maybe possibly change his strategy. Damn, I’m rambling this morning.

    • Renee

      @lindsayb I agree, if Cody comes back I would be okay, but only if Jess is out of the house. His connection to her ruined his chance at getting to see what his actions were doing with the other houseguests. The fact that she is friends with the twins, it is obvious she is just there for the perks of being on tv.

      • ElaineB

        If Jessica is friends with the twins, makes a lot of sense that she grabbed onto a man in the house early on and never let go (literally).

  44. Mel

    I don’t judge hgs for not knowing things they can’t possibly know but I do judge their game play when they don’t pick up on what is in front of them. I agree with a commenter the other night that ‘Alex can’t see the forest for the trees.’ She is determined to work with Paul at all costs and I believe that cost will be 500K. She does understand that she’s on the bottom of this alliance which apparently includes everyone in the house except Jessica so rather than knock out their numbers, she plans to infiltrate and steal Paul from them. (tree) She doesn’t really trust Paul but she trusts he’ll stick with friendship because if he doesn’t, it’ll ruin his reputation. (tree) Unlike some past hgs, his identity doesn’t come from being on BB and he could care less about friendship.
    I wouldn’t mind Alex refusing to work with Xmas and Jessica if it were for game reasons but she simply doesn’t like either of them and that’s why she doesn’t want to work with him. She thinks if Xmas goes, she will step in and be Paul’s #1. The problem is, Xmas isn’t Paul’s #1 now. I think Kevin is and he’ll cut him too. No one likes Jessica (Ales’ statement) but they’re all talking about a battle back so if Cody came back, they could team up if she works with Jessica now and that could give Alex the #’s she really needs. Cody was already loyal to Alex & helping Jess now would solidify it if he came back. (Let’s face it, I don’t see Cameron, Jillian, Dom or Jessica beating Cody unless Cody gives it to Jess) If she’s thinking there is no battle back, Jessica is a number and a ticked off one who has the same goal as Alex said she had. (kind of like the same reason they kept xmas) She did well in last nights comp so she can compete. Alex has written off Ramses, Josh, Jessica, Xmas, Kevin to a certain extent and now Dom and Mark. Who does that leave? Does she think she’s going to get to the end with Matt, Paul and Jason?(remember, Matt & Jason don’t like or trust each other so how’s she going to stay with both)
    I do understand the dilemma Alex is in. She’s afraid to make a move and pay for it next week but taking out Dom doesn’t help her eliminate the shomances she said she was after. If anything, it may make one of the shomances stronger when Dom leaves. Alex also has lesst to worry about with Dom as far as Doms targets than she does Raven and Elena. I do think she should put Jessica otb to appease the other side of the house even if it’s fake but she should do it by secretly explaining to Jessica what the reason is, who her real target is and form something with her. (tree & she doesn’t have to mean it) Dom isn’t after Alex and frankly neither is Mark-those seem to be her targets along with Jess and Xmas. It’s a great move for Paul’s game tho! I think Alex needs to understand that there’s a difference in not having the numbers and refusing to work with the numbers you could have. (tree)
    Jason is kicking himself for falling but he’s so close with Alex I think he felt confident which way she would go. She kept telling him the other night they needed to play it safe. He should have been listening but maybe there was a tree in his way too.
    I was so hopeful last night when she was in the storage room whispering about the huge move she was going to make. Like Dom or not, she isn’t a huge move unless you’re Paul or Ramses. If Alex puts up someone with Jess that the Paul/Couples group doesn’t like, they can just vote out Jess instead and Alex will have shoen too much about her true intentions.Regardless of this week, she should have time to fix any problems that occur with the temptation that I’m certain she’ll get and most players don’t get that opportunity.
    * regarding the mystery that Alex is trying to solve- Jessica is the one who hid her cat ears under the sofa cushion but Raven is the one who’s been pouring out her coke.

  45. Renee

    I love going back and reading the original bios on this page done by @stevebeans and the official CBS bio of characters just to see if their first impressions come true. Stevebeans called the timing of this eviction spot on: “If people stuck with their pregame strategy, I’d rank this guy 14th at best. He is planning on playing an absolutely terrible game with the ‘I need to get floaters out soon’. ” Funny Cody didn’t stick to his pre-game and go after floaters instead of trying to get out strong players first.
