Thursday Afternoon Update From Big Brother 19


The feeds turned on just under a week ago and it’s been a fairly exciting first week in the house. I covered the highlights of the week in my previous thread, so I’m not going to repeat them here. If you’re reading this, you’re probably a regular on this site and already know what’s going on….

The big question going into tonight is whether or not the lines will actually be drawn, or if all this huffing and puffing is just for show.  What I mean is, as of right now Jillian only has about 3 votes to stay (Kevin, Ramses, and Jessica) but this means a bunch of people are playing both sides of the house from Mark to Josh.  The house has Cody and Jessica so convinced that last night they were watching the feed from the HoH room and jokingly getting angry about Jillian dancing in the kitchen because she was looking too happy (side note – I never quite understood the logic. Let’s say Jillian actually is staying, are people going to change their votes because she’s socializing with the house?).

So that’s where we’re at right now. I was going to make this a live thread, but as I was in the process of posting this, the feeds went to kittens for possibly a few hours while they prepare for the ceremony tonight.  I guess I’ll just update this thread if anything happens, but worst case if gives you guys a new discussion post to work on!



  • 1:15 pm – Feeds are back and Josh is in the pantry talking to Paul.
    • Paul is reassuring him everything will be okay and hints at throwing HoH to him (Josh) – but we all know he wouldn’t.
    • Mark comes in and Paul leaves.  Josh starts telling Mark how scared he is and how alone he feels.
    • He is scared about keeping Christmas
    • Mark reminds Josh that he told him to lay low and look at the good position he’s in now.
  • They shake hands and break up. Matt enters…
    • Mark re-tells what Josh said to him about Cody
    • Apparently, Cody told Josh that there was a 9 person alliance who were coming after the floaters
    • Matt says he doesn’t think Cody is playing with a full deck
  • 2:00 pm – Jillian is talking to Alex in the bedroom
    • Jill feels luck is going to turn around after tonight because she’s had a string of bad luck lately.  Maybe she’ll win the lotto on her way home?
  • 3:00 pm – I just got word that tonight’s HoH competition will be endurance!  Yay!  Be sure to have the live feeds here

    while i like jillian, christmas is obviously the one who needs to stay if the alex side of the house wants a serious player to break the shownmances.

    For me, it was fun to see Jillian enjoying herself with people. She emerged from the shadows, and she hadn’t done that before. It was good of Poprah to give Jillian a “deathmarch” interview. Dominique plays it close to the vest and doesn’t give much reality about herself, but she’s big on offering her pop psychology to others. Maybe it’s a smart way of navigating for now. Still, it’d be interesting to see somebody pierce her armor, but Poprah might not lIke that. It’s a waiting game, finding out how she’ll represent herself as a comp player and how far she can coast on her pop stew. Said the spider to the fly.

      BINGO! You know what, now that I think of it Domi may have been cast to go into the BB house to Act as the Psychologist/Therapist?! Domi certainly has helped Josh, & Mark who are highly Emotional House Guest!

      And as we all of us know, being in the Big Brother House all Summer long can be Taxing even on the “Most” Sane person in the House?! So In other words Domi is an Asset in the House, but she is also taking everything in…Domi is being “Cagey”

        thats what I am thinking Mel, she does “sponge” everything up, but that could be helpful down the line, as does her calm demeanor with her sessions with everyone. We just need to see if she can be a competitor too, since the brain can only get you so far

    It should be an Interesting Eviction Night to say the least…So many of the HG keep going back & forth as to who they will be voting for to leave the House…But For Jillian it might be a case of a “Day Late, & a Dollar Short?!” Jillian waited a little too late in her Campaigning to stay in the House, & to get to know her House Mates Better.

    Yes it will be an interesting eviction…..the only thing I know at this point is that Paul is safe for the next two evictions….if the vote is 6 to 6 then it most definitely splits the house….if the vote is 7 to 5 to keep Jillian (because I’m not 100% convinced of Mark) that side will wonder who flipped…if it is 7 to 5 for Christmas to stay than Alex side is gonna wonder who flipped….in the meantime Paul will sit back this week and next week and watch them eat at each other……

  5. feltso gudinya

    i can’t remember the last bb eviction night when i wasn’t 99% sure who was leaving….i like being uncertain much better.

  6. jimbo

    Unless Xmas has a permanent cast on her foot, they are voting out zero threat Jillian instead of a huge threat. sigh

      True but I get sick of floaters like her getting far into the game…I’d rather watch strategy and competition…Jillian has neither

      • ElaineB

        Yes Christmas is a threat to the HGs’ games, which makes it interesting. I agree Helen, that as a viewer, I would rather watch the competitive social and physical games of HGs rather than the passive, go along with the house floater games like Jillian (the ottoman).

    • Avatar

      I agree that in general Christmas is the bigger threat, but since she wants to target Cody/jessica, then they can let her do that before getting her out. Plus they’re probably getting sick of Jillian’s constant babbling about her weight loss surgery

      • LindsayB

        Every time I tune into the feeds and see the ottoman on there I’m always like “who is that”? It takes me a minute to remember her existence. I realize their job in the house is to win and not entertain us but it will be a damn shame if the ottoman stays. Christmas is so much better for the game for us.

      • Avatar

        true Lindsay, Christmas is 100% more interesting than Jillian who from what I’m guessing will be leaving tonight, so the game will be interesting for a while (unless josh or Kevin or anyone else’s vote flips)

    Can this vote please happen now? Earlier is the first time I actually heard Kevin tell someone he is voting to keep Christmas…up until then he would always just say. I’m voting Christmas and it could have been taken two different ways……I don’t take Kevin to be a phony so there is that…but at the same time he is telling Alex and Cowboy he is with them and they are keeping Jillian…… Josh is a basket case. Who knows what he is doing. Does he even know? Mark seems to be playing both sides too…I think he still wants to align with Cody and he has some kind of deal going on with Cowboy…, Lol. Confused much

    • g8trgirl

      Kevin worries me. He’s so clueless about the game in general I’m afraid he won’t know he’s voting someone out of the house and not for them to stay in the house. Lol.

      • ElaineB

        Lol g8, Kevin has cracked me up for that very reason. Earlier Christmas said, ‘I hope I have your vote’. Crickets. Not sure if Kevin knows what or who or why he is voting.

      • LindsayB

        I love Kevin. Does he even know where he is? Does he know why he’s there? Usually when HGs are clueless about the game it annoys me. With him, it’s endearing and so entertaining.

      • ElaineB

        When he gets voted out, I don’t think he will leave. Lol.

      • LindsayB

        True. They’ll say “Kevin, gather your belongings and go out the door”. He’ll be like. “No. I’ll pass. I like it here. I’ll just hang out in mermaid costumes while you guys play”.

      • danmtruth

        @g8trgirl once in the Canada version at the finale that happen The person voted than said no i wanted the o the person I thought we were voting who not tō win what a mess One want to say it was Jasson who told Kevin remember say i’m voting Xmass OUT !

      • g8trgirl

        @danmtruth…that’s too funny. I can only imagine the looks on the HG’s face when that happened!

    I still don’t have a clue how some of them are voting. I haven’t seen any feeds today (crazy work day) and if it’s like last night, it may not have helped to see any. Josh and Kevin are totally up in the air to me because they sound equally convincing with both sides. I got a few quick reads from Twitter but all I could tell from that was that Matt says Cody isn’t playing with a full deck and Kevin says he’s not going to vote and instead, he’s going to pass. Lol I love Kevin…who if full of it about being ignorant regarding BB. I’m not saying he’s some kind of Super Fan but he’s said a few things to let you know that he’s more familiar than he’s acting. If he does, it makes me like him even more.
    Xmas must really be impressive to be around since people are talking like she could still slay Cody with her bum foot. She’s obviously more of a competitor than Jillian but let’s face it there’s some comps she may not even be able to compete in at all. She’s still a number for voting so I would keep her too if I was on her side of the house. The verdicts just fill out with me over what she can actually accomplish. I’ll be super impressed if she does and would love for her to beat Cody in something…anything with a broken foot. I don’t care if it’s a ham sandwich eating contest. I’d just like to see him lose to her. I like Alex (like her a little less than I didn in the beginning) and it sucks for her if Jillian goes tonight. Alex and her crazy conspiracy theories have knocked her down a few points for me though. I love the way she stood up to Cody and how well she’s done in comps but a couple of her decisions have me scratching my head. I don’t blame her for stopping the trust with Paul but to do it because you’re convinced he has a mission to break up a friendship or he’s getting paid extra to keep Christmas for a set amount of weeks??? That’s a little too far-fetched. I started questioning her thought process a bit when she went off on Megan and it’s sort of continued from there. I understood that she was upset with Megan but that was a really dumb move that day.

    • ElaineB

      I am with you Mell on my change of mind (a bit) on Alex. Some of her convos have taken her down a notch or two on my likable meter. If she continues to talk about breaking up the gross-mances, I am with her on that. For once I would like for those dud duos to be separated early in the game.

      • Kayla88

        Her likability for me is highly affected by her dislike of the grossmances like is Jessica ever not stradling Cody in bed?

      • Mel
        Mel (4667 comments)

        Me too Elaine! I like how competitive she is but her game thinking had been letting me down this week. She’s a firecracker tho and I like that. Grown men JUST started standing up to Cody but she’s done it to his face from the start.

    I hope Jillian stays and I like her and it’s gonna be hard eviction if they keep going back and forth over and over again. Also I hope Paul wins the HOH!

    Well so far today Kevin told Christmas he was keeping her….he also told her ( I think) who was against her….josh has told live feeds twice today and once a couple of days ago he is keeping Christmas…..mark and Cowboy are two that seem to have something strange going on…..
    I don’t think Kevin is a liar or a phony so I trust he is good on his word…josh would be a fool to tell live feeds one thing and go back and do another….

    • LindsayB

      “Josh would be a fool…”
      I think one thing Slosh has shown us is that he’s definitely a fool. An idiot. Paranoid. Delusional. Bat shit crazy. And for sure a fool.
      I have to turn off the feeds when he opens his whiny mouth but damn I’d love to see him win an HOH just to see the whole house have to try to suck up and work with that basket case.

      Kevin has told Jason & Alex repeatedly that he is voting out Xmas though and that’s who he seems closest to in the house. That’s why I haven’t been sure about what he’s doing. He also told Jason to just agree with Paul to shut him up but they weren’t really going to do what Paul wanted. I don’t see Kevin playing Paul this early but I don’t see him playing Jason either.

        Helen (5158 comments)

        Yeah I have been really confused….but I really like Kevin and I just can not see him looking Christmas in the eyes and telling her that he gives his word that he is voting to keep her….he might to Paul or even Jason but I really don’t think he’s the type of man that would do that to xmas……I could be wrong

      • LindsayB

        I can’t wait to see how everyone actually votes. It’s refreshing to think we just might have a season where every week people aren’t “voting with the house”. Love em or hate em it looks like we have some folks who will stick to their guns. I hope so anyway.

      • ElaineB

        Oh I am so glad it is not a week of ‘voting with the house’….hopefully the temptations and consequences will keep the HGs engaged in the game and putting forth effort.

      • g8trgirl

        @lindsayb how refreshing would it be if that could last all summer.

    I think it would be fantastic if Josh won hoh just to have another crazy week. Remember when most people hated Paul in the beginning and then he calmed down? He started wearing us down and they we loved him. I’m not crazy. I know Josh is a nut job but it would be funny if he could turn it around for himself in a similar sort of way. To be clear…that’s not a prediction, just a thought. Lol

    • Jenny

      It would be hilarious to see, for sure! Especially Cody. Watching him kiss up to anybody else would be fun, although maybe he doesn’t do that sort of thing. Maybe he’ll just spend the week aggressively brushing his teeth.

        Helen (5158 comments)

        That had to be the strangest thing I’ve ever seen anyone do…..he was for sure trying to intimidate Paul and I think Paul knew in that moment what Cody was going to do because as Paul left the room he said…well do what you got to do

    Earlier 1:14 pm Kevin and Christmas in rose room -Lbc Less…
    K……I told you I would give you my word….I don’t think your going to leave. . Just remember don’t f around. (He whispers in her ear) Remember who went against you. Remember
    C…..thank you. I will I will
    K……you can hug them and say what’s going on but you can play it up. Remember that when its time to come down if you can make it through everyone’s going to be on your side. when the numbers come down on your side remember that.
    C,…..I tell you what I would rather have a house full of people I like hanging out with and take those people far
    K…..the group
    C……the group picked you
    K……I was shocked shocked (about the nomination)
    C…..well I’m hoping everyone sees his inconsistency
    K…..are you going to win the hop (hoh)
    C……if I can. I have to participate in anything that I am capable of but if there is a danger the dr has to authorize it. So if the dr says no….
    K…..don’t worry I got your back (kisses her on the cheek) I never would have switched anyhow. I just dont like people asking all week. It’s like being in high school with girls not that it’s a girl thing sorry about that,
    C…..I have never been in the cool kids gossip group so for me to come play this game I don’t know what the f I’m doing.
    K…..I promise you. You’ll see at the end.
    C…..thank you

      Maybe he was just irritated with Paul all week & thats why he was considering keeping Jillian for a while. It still doesn’t explain why he would hang Jason out to dry like that tho. He’s closer to Jason than Xmas. Surely, if Kevins keeping Xmas, he’ll tell Jason beforehand. Either way, it should be interesting.

    • LindsayB

      That’s promising. I love Kevin and really hope he’s not full of shit.
