Big Brother 19: First HoH Comp Show Blog Party
Julie Chen promised us tonight will be the first HoH comp show. She didn't mention eviction, so that should be on the slate for next Thursday. As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll be live blogging and updating this entry with the major events. Refresh the page to get the latest! It will be sort of a "the best I can" attempt as it takes me a bit to get the names down in the beginning of the season. The real party is in the comments area -- I hope to see you there!
The live feeds won't come on until 1am here on the East Coast after tonight's show finishes up on the West Coast. I have to get up early for work tomorrow. I'll try to have something for you, but I don't know what or how much right now! Once the feeds are constantly on, I' plan on posting two live feeds reports daily. That 1am is a killer for the first live feeds on the East Coast, though!

Hamster watchers ready?
We must endure a recap of last night ...
Paul tells us that Christmas should have been the target -- she's the biggest threat. He's right, of course. But, personally, I think I'd rather spend the summer watching her instead of Cameron. I found Cameron annoying. He was too cocky.
The girls are already thinking that the guys have an alliance. While I saw no actual alliance last night, it was mainly the guys voting to oust Jillian, the women went for Cameron. Josh and Jason went for Christmas.
Megan, Alex, Ramses and Jillian are the only outright alliance I've seen. They're scheming as I type. They want to target Josh, Paul and Mark.
Oh, geez. Tough talking Josh is crying. Who comforts him? Christmas! He tells us that he made a mistake voting for her last night and she has a big heart. He thinks he can work with her. She thinks he needs to toughen up or he won't last. But she doesn't tell him that.
The doorbell rings. NICOLE walks into the house! Kevin has to be told who she is, of course. Paul isn't too happy.
She's not there to stay. She's there to host the first HoH comp of the summer. She has to read off the rules. Teams of four -- two men/two women per team.
Gah -- I have to catch up with the teams! Garden of Temptation, rotten apples, one team member must retrieve one apple, two per person total. First two teams advance, other two eliminated. Golden apple -- safe for the week, with a consequence the rest of the team eliminated from playing for HoH.
Kevin has to throw HoH.
Josh took the golden apple! Jillian is ticked. Kevin is probably relieved because he didn't have to really throw it. Josh blew up at them saying he knows he's a target. Josh screamed at Megan, blaming her.
Ramses feels responsible for his team's loss.
The final leg has them using two of each team, the others could still be up.
Balancing apples on tree.
Paul is against Cody right now. It's kind of like the comp where they had to balance stuffed animals on trees.
CODY wins the first HoH comp! We know that he's really irked at Josh for being "selfish" in the beginning of the game and he wants Paul gone. Will Paul be a nominee? It's hard to tell. Hmm. Josh has safety.
Cody tells us he wants to draw lines in the sand and divide the house. Oh my.
Josh once again tells Megan she's disgusting. He once again accuses her of rallying against him. This dude has issues. Maybe even a subscription. If anything, he's going to make others want to protect her.
Paul makes chaps and "bullrides" Jason to lighten the mood. Cody is not impressed -- he wants Paul out.
Mark, Matt and Cody start an alliance.
Good ... Josh is really truly apologizing to Megan. The dude is whacked. He claims it's the first time he's been away from his family and blah-blah-blah.
Christmas, Raven, Domnique and Elean have attracted Cody's interest as "babes" he could work with. He thinks Jessica is great, but distracts him.
Cody tells Mark that they can't trust Paul and he needs to be backdoored. Mark trusts Paul, but it's Cody's call. Cody thinks others are "outsiders" in the house.
Nominations ceremony time --
Jillian and Megan.
He says that he doesn't like Megan much and Jillian aligns with Megan too much.
He, of course, is still thinking of backdooring Paul if he can.
I'll try to have a little something on the feeds in the morning, but I can't promise much. I will have a full report tomorrow evening!
