Big Brother 19: Season Premiere Blog Party


Okay, hamster watchers! It's HERE -- the two-hour season premiere of Big Brother 19! As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll be updating this entry with the major events. Refresh the page to get the latest! Tonight 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 tomorrow's show and I have to get up early for work Friday. 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 tomorrow is a killer, though!

Here are the blog pool match-ups for easy reference tonight -- 

Alex Ow - jujufruit423, caela, Donna in FL, Nickelpeed
Cameron Heard - Indiana Jane, Jackie, Brian, Marlo L
Christmas Abbott - Willie J, Rich from Buffalo, Glenn, QuixoticElf
Cody Nickson - MikesGirl, Chacha, Donna in NY, Delee
Dominique Cooper - Ed in Ohio, Monty924, Delores in Hollywood (FL)
Elena Davies - Uncartie, Fred aka TwoBlackAces. Sharon N
Jason Dent - Donna in Alabama, Cheryl in NC, jo Chapman
Jessica Graf - zombiehospice, Jean in Tampa Bay, Merilee
Jillian Parker - Sasha, Janice from GA/FL, DFT, jessica UNderwood
Josh Martinez - Petals, Stormy, Kelsey in NY, Dr_Celine
Kevin Schlehuber - elee86, aya, SueGee on the Left Coast
Mark Jansen - Buzzmaam, Judi Sweeney, Cheryl C, Sharon S
Matthew Clines - JonMD1267, T-Town Chick, Sharon C
Megan Lowder -Jenn G, chrob61, Marthalight
Ramses Soto - tbc, Pupis, Babs, Tammy
Raven Walton - Kristen from Ohio, David, Nora


Just a reminder -- please keep the comments PG-rated, please don't attack other commenters, please keep the comments towards things the hamsters can control (not looks and such). Any hate speech will be removed -- we don't need that here!

Hamster watchers ready? 

Julie promises us the most tempting season of Big Brother and lets us know there will be three tempting offers -- 25 grand, fan favorite back in game, one might go home. Oy. I don't want a returning hamster!

Then we're into the key receiving introductions. I will not be posting play by play with that. Christmas starts off.We meet half of them first. Julie hints at temptations. Alex, Mark, Ramses and Elena enter first. Alex is liking it to a Garden of Eden already and thinks Mark is a hottie.

Jason, Dominque, Kevin and Christmas enter next.

Now we're meeting the second half of the hamsters.Matt, Raven, Jillian and Cameron move in next. Finally, Cody ... Jessica, Josh and Megan enter.

Once all gathered, it's introductions and champagne to start things off. Dominique lies and tells them she's a motivational speaker, not an engineer.

The editing is definitely pushing showmance potential stuff. 

Julie tells us that before the night is up, the hamsters will be tempted by money, safety and power ... but each will come with a consequence. 

Julie calls them all to the living room. She tells them of the summer's big twist. Says it's the biggest, wildest, most tempting of the game. It starts right now. She tells them they'll be tempted by money, safety and power. 

First temptation -- 
Head outside. BB's Garden of Temptation. They must each pick a (huge) pod. Who could use 25 grand? First person to push their button when a light in front of them turns green wins. The first twist of the summer will release. It will be anonymous. Kevin did it. The first twist has two consequences, one personal and the other for the entire house. Kevin can't win the first HoH. The second will be revealed in "due time." 

Oh, geez. A former houseguest "fan favorite" will be entering as the 17th houseguest. I DID NOT WANT A RETURNING HAMSTER! 

Lots of speculation over who did it. And, ack, it's Paul from BB18 (as per the rumors). Kevin has no clue who he is. @@

Julie calls them again to the living room. Paul is not moving in simply to play the game -- he's taking the place of one of the hamsters. One will be evicted tonight.

Second temptation -- Safety. If one wants to stay in the game, one must tempt Paul. Paul retrieves a box. Inside are nine friendship bracelets. He is to have one, hand out eight to others. Those eight will be safe. 

They all get a few moments with him. Very odd.

Julie calls them to the living room once again. Paul tells us he wants to keep a mix in the house. Paul saves Kevin first. Then Raven, Dominque, Mark, Jason, Jessica, Ramses and Elena.

Josh thinks by not being selected, Paul likes him. 

The eight without bracelets will go to the backyard to compete for safety. 

The comp is called Tempted by the Fruit. Three will remain on the chopping block at the end of the comp, one will be voted out. They have to stand on a trapeze. If they fall off, they must eat an apple. Four are "good" apples giving safety, four are "poison." The longer they stay on the trapeze, the more clues they get for finding the good apples. 

Jillian(?) falls first, takes an apple from a red snake (more likely to be good). Megan goes out next, picks an apple. Josh jumps and thinks he picked a good apple. He thinks he's smarter than all. Cameron is down, forgets the clues and just goes for an apple. Christmas deliberately goes down, picks an apple.  

Three houseguests left, two apples. Cody, Matt and Alex remain. Matt goes down. Alex is down. Cody wins safety! 

Poison apples: Christmas, Cameron, Jillian 

Julie reveals the final temptation of the night. Power. Will only offer it to the three on the block. They get to choose how they want their fate determined. They can have the house vote or they can fight for safety in an eviction comp. They vote for it.

Jillian -- Vote, doesn't think she can beat Christmas
Cameron -- Compete
Christmas -- Vote (to see where she stands)

Eviction vote wins, 2 to 1. They get some time to campaign for safety.

Paul can only vote in the event of a tie since he'll be taking the evicted's place.

They're not showing the votes! Wah!

Julie tells them the votes are in. Christmas, 2 votes, safe. 8-3, Cameron is evicted.

There goes my pool boy! He was too cocky, methinks.

By the way, the blog pool people who had Cameron will now have Paul. I can't win for losing, eh? 

Tomorrow night is the first HoH comp, Sunday is the Den of Temptation -- the Pendant of Protection, protects holder through the next three evictions. We get to vote. Of course, there will be a consequence. 

Ah, the guys are the ones who voted to evict the girls. The girls went after Cameron.

monty924 said...

Hey Penny and Jackie

Glenn said...

Hi Jackie and everyone! I am so glad that Christmas is my pool pick. She is from Raleigh, NC which is only a couple hours from my Hometown of Wilmington, NC. I also liked her interview with Jeff!

Hey Monty and everyone

Petals said...

OH! I have 2 fresh apple pies (because what goes better with booze, margaritas & Buffalo wings?)

Friend! There is a tornado (not nearly) close to my viewing area, so BB is effing interrupted for the storm watch. Grrrr! I'll be counting on you for pivotal updates. :)

And I had to, regretfully, retire my leopard floatie. She had a hole :( I'm a peacock now.

Joe in NY said...

My EARLY favorite is muscle girl!

Cheryl in NC said...

Hey Glenn..are you still in NC?

Rich said...

Hi everyone! Rich from Buffalo hopping in for another summer of fun! I'm excited to see what this season brings!

David said...

Hello Everyone, =)

Nooooo Monty, I hope the rumors are not true. If they are, he should be first voted out.

Nickelpeed said...

Petals, I had that happen during the Survivor Finale. They interrupted the entire 3 hours. And, didn't show it later. I was so upset. Thank God I had a friend who DVRed it and copied it on a disc. I was so upset.

Joe in NY said...

Y'know, they are all acting surprised, but there's an effing camera crew right there. Why did they think there was a camera crew in the house?

Becky said...

Hey, everyone. I thought I had signed up, but I guess I didn't. Oh, well.

Cheryl in NC said...

Hey Joe

Nickelpeed said...

This woman is soooooo smart. I hope she does well and doesn't overthink it.

monty924 said...

JJOOOOOEEEEEE xoxoxoxoxo

JonMD1267 said...

PETALS :)

Nickelpeed said...

I don't mind people bringing Jesus to these competitions, but it makes a hard game to play if you don't want to be sneaky, etc. Also, if they talk about him all the time, it makes it very difficult.

monty924 said...

Love the new floatie, Petals!! :)))

Petals said...

and anyone I missed, since i am tending bar, watching a tornado that is about 100000 miles away. grrrr

Who needs a drink?? (besides me?)

Nickelpeed said...

Love you Becky.

Petals said...

You guys - My best gf went to college with the rodeo cowboy Jason! She said he was nice, a 'character', always in a good mood, and was class clown.

So we have somewhat of a hometown connection!

JonMD1267 said...

Kristen from Ohio said...

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi SueGee, Congrats to your Dubs!

monty924 said...

Pao Pao 2.0 has the first one in curse

Joe in NY said...

Did Julie have work done or something? She looks very different.

Sharon N said...

Careful Petals. You might be inadvertently be inviting PAUL to the party... to steal your floatie!! LOL

JonMD1267 said...

I will try and refrain from the "Christmas" puns, try being the word lol

Joe in NY said...

Onesies...LMAO

Petals said...

Hey JO!!! Hey TBC! Hey Sharon!! Hey there, Sue !!

I love Mark & Matt, and i love Ramses' name, and I love Whistlenut (cowboy's nickname)

I am not impressed with muscles on chicks, so I'm not a Christmas fan.

SueGee said...

Thanks Ed!!

tbc said...

Onesies lol

monty924 said...

Homie!! Long time no see... got to root for our gal Dominque the Dominator :))

Joe in NY said...

Hi Petals, how's tricks?

Petals said...

*sliding a cool Stella to Monty*

Pao 2.0, LOL!!!

monty924 said...

LOL @ Sharon... right?

Petals said...

JOEEEEEEE!! Same old stuff. Nothing has changed, but I am tolerating it better. Are you off for the summer? (no way - you are NEVER off)

tbc said...

Hi, Petals!!

monty924 said...

Down the hatch! Thanks pal!!

Petals said...

No onesies, Joe? Uhoh..I'd already picked out one for you!

monty924 said...

The gangs all here! So excited for this summer.

SueGee said...

Shoot - looks like there is a grass fire close by - can smell it!!! And see the smoke

Petals said...

Sue - really? Or is grass fire a euphemism?

monty924 said...

I don't think Julie's changed, Joe. But... I see her everyday on The Talk so maybe I just don't notice.

Petals said...

I like Cody!

David said...

Stay safe SueGee. Hope you don't have to evacuate.

monty924 said...

I think Raven is going to drive me nuts

JonMD1267 said...

"Who you gonna call" lol

SueGee said...

Brats are really good!! Steamed them with Anchor Steam beer. Sipping down the rest!

Jennasmom said...

Oh, man, I missed the pool this year. Oh, well. I'll just splash in my bathtub.

SueGee said...

So much dry grass around here...fire looks like its over by the freeway...lots of smoke

monty924 said...

Stay safe, SueGee

Kristen from Ohio said...

Raven is my pick and I think she'll drive me nuts.

Nickelpeed said...

Gosh SueGee, stay safe! Sending prayers.

Petals said...

oh no! yes, be careful Sue!

Here is Natalie 2.0. @@

Ed in Ohio said...

Hope it's not 'windy' too SueGee

JonMD1267 said...

I have nothing to say on her lol

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, she says her boobs are real, but REALLY?

Becky said...

LYM Penny! Petals, check your mail during commercial. And pass me a Stella.

JonMD1267 said...

My local VA pool boy lol

David said...

My pool pick driving Monty nuts.....bonus! lol I was kind of afraid of that after seeing her interview.

SueGee said...

Drinking word tonight - "Real"

Petals said...

*Stella for Becky!*


Sue Gee - LOL!

Monty thought a good drinking word would be Alliance. But "real" is good, too!

Becky said...

SueGee, please be very, very careful.

Nickelpeed said...

Yep, and I bet she tells everyone quite often they are REAL. lolol

Petals said...

How many minutes until we hear Josh say, "Say 'ello to my lil frien"?

JonMD1267 said...

LOL point to petals lol

Nickelpeed said...

I always feel sorry for the last 4 because they get what's left. Sometimes it's bad.

Nickelpeed said...

I kind of like Raven. She's funny.

Petals said...

Becky - I have no mail? FB or G? jlmcc1031@gmail.com

Sharon N said...

With both Alliance and Real the drinking words, lots of taxi rides home tonight! LOL

Petals said...

NOOO Cody - she is disgusting! Look away!

monty924 said...

LOL, Petals

Nickelpeed said...

OMGosh! I hope they put salt peter in the guys food. LOL

jo Chapman said...

Josh is gonna drive me crazy

Petals said...

Ramses is Jason 2.0

Becky said...

What is the older dudes name - the one with the vest and tie.

JonMD1267 said...

Famous last words good vibes lol

Joe in NY said...

Well, we know the two guys that AREN'T winning. LOL. Jessica's boys are going out early!

JonMD1267 said...

LOL that was funny

Ed in Ohio said...

I think I could get along with Matthew

Petals said...

ugh.. Show-play (foreplay to a showmance)

Joe in NY said...

Hi Petals. No, not off. Halfway through summer session.

Petals said...

Raven would be pretty if she wasn't suck a kook

Petals said...

Becky - older dude has like 7 kids! He is a Mr Mom.

Ed in Ohio said...

I thought Ramses had an 'Urkel' vibe

Joe in NY said...

Cockplay. LMAO. Can we see a cockplay onesie...

Nickelpeed said...

I thought everyone knew what a COS Player was? I'm surprised.

Petals said...

JASONNNNNN!!!! WHOOOO!

JonMD1267 said...

THEY GAVE HER SUBTITLES Lol

Nickelpeed said...

Just keep passing me the margaritas and I'll be fine. Yum

Petals said...

Hello! Mark brought the GUN SHOW

Joe in NY said...

OKay, hard to believe all those early 20-somethings are digging the silver fox. Where were they before I went from silver to skin? LOL

monty924 said...

Ah, when they all still like each other, lol

Nickelpeed said...

So, I wonder what happens if someone gives in to CBS's temptations? Any one know?

Petals said...

I am loving the Temptation in place of Battle of the Block.

monty924 said...

LOL @ Joe

Nickelpeed said...

Joe, you are so funny! LOL

JonMD1267 said...

That never lasts long Monty lol

Becky said...

Joe, you are funny!

Sharon N said...

Sliding a mega-Margarita over to Penny...

Ed in Ohio said...

Won't be long 'til the claws come out!

Petals said...

Joe - you know skin is a sign of virility!

Rich said...

Those cheers turned to silent "oh no's" very quickly. Lol

Joe in NY said...

OMG! Do we have to scream about everything

monty924 said...

Don't do it

Petals said...

I love this Temptation twist!

monty924 said...

Whistlenut has never seen the game. He'll do it

JonMD1267 said...

They gonna break fingers pressing that button lol

monty924 said...

Kevin, ugh

Joe in NY said...

Why wouldn't you press the button if it's anonymous and the consequences don't automatically fall on you?

JonMD1267 said...

Thank you Joe!!! I would have broke the buzzer trying to press it lol

Petals said...

oh man! A bunch of people hit the button!

Nickelpeed said...

Let's just hope, for Kevin's sake, they never find out he pushed the button.

monty924 said...

And the consequence wasn't that bad, I guess. First HOH isn't necessarily a great thing.

SueGee said...

Apparently some consequences are for the button pusher

Cheryl in NC said...

I think I would have pushed the damn button too!

Kristen from Ohio said...

Does Kevin remind anyone else of Berry Manaloe?

SueGee said...

Bets anyone???

Joe in NY said...

I would think the millenials should know what a Cosplay is.

Joe in NY said...

Why do I think he's going to soooo obviously throw the HOH that they'll know it's him?

Petals said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

JonMD1267 said...

He isnt going to last this time

monty924 said...

And here's Paul... no Pablo this year, Paul.

Cheryl in NC said...

Noooooooooo

Petals said...

I need a drink.


ugh

Kristen from Ohio said...

Ugh

SueGee said...

When are they going to add someone??

Petals said...

I need another...

uuuugghh

Ed in Ohio said...

Uuuuughhh Paul...........now I'm gonna' have to use the mute button

Becky said...

I'm glad that Kevin got the money. The father of seven? He needs it.

monty924 said...

Cody, ugh. Didn't like the last one either.

Petals said...

Dominique - you & me BOTH, girl! I didn't want any repeats!

Kristen from Ohio said...

Wonder if he brought his pool float

David said...

The vote was rigged. No way Paul is a fan favorite. I bet Russia hacked it to subject us to him.

Petals said...

I don't really dig on Tijuana-plastic-surgery-with-the-family chick.

JonMD1267 said...

LOL funny

Petals said...

David - FAKE NEWS!

monty924 said...

DRINK

SueGee said...

I really didn't get into BB18 so he is unknown to me

Joe in NY said...

I vote that we eliminate all screamers

SueGee said...

FAKE CHOICE

Petals said...

Because don't all "down-to-Earth" people die their hair like cotton candy?

*huge EYEROLL @@*

Sharon N said...

LOL David.

SueGee said...

It would be nice to have a vote again.......

Nickelpeed said...

Why Paul. Well, they better vote him off fast.

monty924 said...

That sucks

Becky said...

LOL< Petals. NOT fair!

Kristen from Ohio said...

Boo

Petals said...

Sue G - he was a rich Armenian kid from BevHills, just fame-hungry. Over-the-top, in your face personality. Not charming at all. Just a LOUD character, period. IMO natch.


Still need a drink. Sent step-n-fetch boy for more STELLA

JonMD1267 said...

"What a twist" lol

JonMD1267 said...

LOL that's cold lol but funny

SueGee said...

Well, one leaves, one joins - makes for an easier pool shuffle LOL

Petals said...

I may not like all of the players, but I AM LOVING this new twisty-twists!

Joe - do you like my new peacock floatie? How are your babies?

Nickelpeed said...

Will he save the guys? Or will he mix it up? Kevin will probably offer Paul the money. Yikes.

monty924 said...

Now everyone is Paul's best friend, lol

SueGee said...

He must have been still unemployed and available LOL or his Daddy has an in at CBS

JonMD1267 said...

LOL Her weave out that was funny

Petals said...

She must've gotten the weave in Tijuana, too - it looks ... less than hi-quality.

Nickelpeed said...

Where is this house located? LA or Beverly Hills? Or neither?

Petals said...

CBS Studio lot.

SueGee said...

I think the lot is in Burbank

Joe in NY said...

LOL, Petals. Yes, it's a charming floatie.

I never really warmed up to Pauly last year. Then again, I usually don't warm up to most of the hgs, so no big deal.

I'm still liking Christmas. I suppose I should cheer for Upstate NY guy. He seems nice enough. Cosplay and Miami are going to annoy me, I think.

Becky said...

I never was a fan of his last year. It's not fair that someone gets the boot so that guy (I am being nice, Jackie, can stay. I don't think that Kevin will offer him the money. He will play the seven little kids at home card.

uncartie said...

The microbiologist will be right at home living in the soon to be germ factory. Hi everyone.

Petals said...

Actually, Kevin buzzing-in first for the $25k was very smart. He will take home more than he wouldn've earned; those kids weren't gonna keep him around long.

Kristen - no. I don't see Barry Manilow in him; I loved Barry from the 70s, his big nose & all. I don't recognize him anymore. :(


Joe in NY said...

They must have gone to Tijuana because they didn't qualify in the US. They didn't look that heavy. My cousin actually went and GAINED weight so she would qualify in the US. You have to have a BMI of 35 or higher, I think.

Petals said...

uncartie - LOL!!! Welcome! Have a STELLA!

Anyone else? Margarita? Stella? Perrier?

Joe in NY said...

LOL, uncartie

Ed in Ohio said...

Paul & his 'friendship' shtick.....they're losing me already.

What if no one took the 25K? Would Paul still come in?
