BB19: Power of Veto Show Blog Party - July 12


As tonight's show airs, I'll be live-blogging and updating this entry -- refresh the page to get the latest. As always, the real party is in the comments area. I hope to see you there!

Recap, recap, recap. 

The Backdoor Cody plan is in. Alex and Josh are pawns and Ramses is the third nominee. The show is keeping the suspense going about him. 

Cody recognizes it's a backdoor in motion and hopes to play in PoV. Jessica vows to stay with him until the end. 

Paul talks to Ramses, promises him he's safe, but he needs to throw the veto comp. Ramses, in the DR, says he's going to try to win it because he feels alone in the game.

The Den of Temptation has cursed Jason, Jessica and Cody. Jessica thinks it was Christmas who did it and, of course, she is right. She thinks Christmas is a bully. They've been cursed by the VToad and must hop everywhere they go and stay to lily pads while in FROG costumes.

Paul sends Kevin to check in with Ramses to make sure he'll stick to the plan. Ramses tells him he will. But he tells us he's conflicted. 

Oh geez ... Cody and Jessica moments.

Time to pick PoV players! Only six will participate -- Paul pulls the two chips. Elena and Matt. It breaks Cody's heart. He's a victim.

The veto is played one player at a time. Paul is still trying to convince Ramses. Ramses says he promised himself and his family he wouldn't throw a comp.

The comp is a trip around the world. They pass through terminals, get asked questions, right and the flight is on time, wrong they get challenge delays. The fastest wins. The Path of Least Resistance. 

Paul got delayed in Terminal One. Then again in Two. Delayed again in Three. He got through the last two without delays.

Alex went through next. Then Josh. Neither seem to be doing well. Nor is Matt. Nope to Elena, too.

They have to eat pate, caviar and escargot with sweaty tourists falling asleep on them in one of the delays. In another they dive into a frozen "lake" to retrieve their passport. Others in the beginning have them kicking boards and grocery shopping adding up to a certain amount.

Ramses is up. He says he wants to win. He's getting the delays but getting through them quickly. 

Josh - 7.48
Ramses - 7.44
Elena - 22.35
Matt - 11.32
Alex - 16.38
Paul -  to commercial
Paul - 4.37

Paul wins PoV and isn't happy with Ramses.

More Cody and Jessica. Gag.

Ramses tells Paul he wasn't trying to win the veto, wanted to throw it. Paul says the book is closed, done. Paul doesn't trust Ramses. The editing hints he might want to take him out rather than Cody.

Yeah, right. 

Den of Temptation - Halting Hex pushed once again. 

Time for the Veto Meeting. 

Alex - Wants to be here, if you don't, I will fight you.
Ramses- Use as you feel fit.
Josh - Goes on tirade at Cody. Heh. Whoa, he's really lighting into them.

Paul saves Josh.

Heck, it was the best speech!

Paul puts Cody on the block.

Nickelpeed said...

Joe in NY said...

Still think that was a horrible temptation compared to Paul's

Glenn said...

Hi Jackie and Joe and Petals and anyone else I might have missed.

Petals said...

hey Penny & David

David said...

Hi Petals. =)

Nooooo, no tennis for me. Watching the WSOP though. You don't have to move your eye's or turn your head as much.

Nickelpeed said...

Well, Paul, I hope it changes. Look how mad you were when returnees came back. These people are so interesting. LOL

Cheryl in NC said...

Hi Jackie and everyone

Petals said...

what is WSOP

Wait - poker. I figured it out. LOL

I win. My sport is better. BWHAHAHA

Nickelpeed said...

LOL @ David.

Jackie said...

Hey, guys. Not a tennis fan myself.

Petals said...

Jackie - you'd love what Andy Murray did. He made a statement for feminism during his press conference.

Hoping for a BIG UPSET this week; tired of the Paul Show.

Cheryl in NC said...

I am soooo over Paul!

David said...

Hi Penny, Cheryl, and Glenn. =)

JonMD1267 said...

Helllloooo BB Peeps!!!

Petals said...

and... has anyone seen the footage of Domineque complaining about being on the show? She hates it, hates being there, is humiliated and questioning why she is even on the show (which shes never seen in her life).

It's on YouTube. Check it out.

I KNEW I hates her for a reason.

Petals said...

Hey Jon, Dave & Cheryl!

Cheryl in NC said...

It was stupid curse

Nickelpeed said...

Love that laugh. LOL

Petals said...

interesting, creepy voice...

Nickelpeed said...

Okay Jessica, let's talk bullying. You are a bully!

Petals said...

the FROG curse!

Cheryl in NC said...

Pot kettle black...Jessica..lol

JonMD1267 said...

LOL that is funny

Nickelpeed said...

Those are not toads. But....LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

Petals said...

wow - animation?

Nickelpeed said...

That is funny.

JonMD1267 said...

ok I'm pretty sure that is not the most humiliating thing she has done lol

Petals said...

LOL Jason

Cheryl in NC said...

Haha...at least they all laughed about it

Petals said...

Bwhaha Jon - you're correct!

JonMD1267 said...

They are on point with the sound effects this year lol

Cheryl in NC said...

Lol Jonmd

Petals said...

and...the Paul Show.

Petals said...

I'd leave a room if you were giving your balhblahblah bs!

David said...

Wait until Dominique gets put on the block. She is going to go balistic then. LOL If she wasn't in with the big group, she probably would have already self evicted.

JonMD1267 said...

I think if the kid would have said look I'm on the block right wrong or indifferent I'm not throwing the veto if he would have been upfront maybe they wouldnt have gotten so ticked over him going for it.

Nickelpeed said...

Feel bad for Ramses.

Petals said...

uhoh - someone stole a kid in KCMO. No more show for me.

Nickelpeed said...

That looks horrible. Yuck. LOLOLOL

Petals said...

HOHitis killed Cody

monty924 said...

Hi everyone... late to the party so I brought desert. Vanilla bean ice cream and apple dumplings.

Grabbing a Stella from Petals

Petals said...

what a whack season @@

SueGee said...

~~~SPLASH~~~ Howdy everyone!! Just home from the DR appt (shot in the old knee) Trying to catch up

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Petals said...

thanks Monty! I'm dying for something sweet - YUM!

SueGee said...

Hey Monty - I'll have the dumpling w/ ice cream and eat dinner later LOL

JonMD1267 said...

MMOOONNNNTTTYYYYY lol

JonMD1267 said...

I have left over carvel ice cream cake lol

Nickelpeed said...

I believe this is set up in some way. Neither Cody and Jessica would ever get pulled. I think Cody made production really mad, so he's all but guaranteed to go.

Paul, you are such a bully. Leave Ramses alone. Poor kid.

Petals said...

and if you don't do what Paul dictates - GONE

Nickelpeed said...

Jon, I love Carvel ice cream cake!!!

monty924 said...

JOOOONNNNNN

Petals said...

Paul has set-up Ram & Jason to go home - he is running the show unless AMERICA votes and changes the coarse of the game!

JonMD1267 said...

I pretend it's peoples birthdays now and then just to get one lol

Nickelpeed said...

Yes, Petals. HOH went to his head. He tried to do too much too soon.

tbc said...

Hi all! Jumping in the pool tonight. I'm late due to my karate phase exam. Tired, thirsty and hot! *pouring myself a Pinot Grigio spritzer*

JonMD1267 said...

It's always different when the person is not on the block telling the other they are safe when how many times do the pawns go home lol I kind of can't fault Rams for not throwing it even though he more then likely would have been 100% safe this week

monty924 said...

Paul can't win any temptations from here on out and I guarantee someone will go after him sooner or later.

Joe in NY said...

Does he ever stop talking?

Petals said...

TBC is our resident bad a**! WTG

monty924 said...

Love this veto... I've been waiting to see it just from the stories they've told

tbc said...

Thanks!!

JonMD1267 said...

No Joe he never stops talking lol

Petals said...

I really dislike xmas

JonMD1267 said...

that was funny

Nickelpeed said...

LOLOL This is a great veto challenge!

David said...

If I was HOH in a couple of weeks when Paul can be nominated, I would tell him if he does not say a word to anyone for 24 hours, I will not put him on the block. If he does, I will try to back door him. lol

tbc said...

I love this competition!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Ramses reminds me of Urkel. I would kind of like him to win, but we all know who does. LOL

Nickelpeed said...

He is so funny!

Joe in NY said...

I'm going to put up a Christmas tree.

Nickelpeed said...

Paul, shut up!

JonMD1267 said...

LOL that was funny 22:35

Cheryl in NC said...

Lol joe

Petals said...

make sure it leans...

Nickelpeed said...

I bet Cody wishes he treated people a lot better now.

Susan in MA said...

I think Cody would do it exactly the same way, he's so arrogant.

monty924 said...

Agree with Susan... he wouldn't change a thing

JonMD1267 said...

Paul does need a reality check nomination as soon as possible lol

David said...

Cody would have got away with being mean if he had put up Jason or Ramses after the Paul reveal. Putting up Christmas is what boned him.

JonMD1267 said...

They made it sound like he was two seconds in front of Paul lol

JonMD1267 said...

Cody flew to close to the sun lol

Nickelpeed said...

So right David. I do feel kind of bad Cody, but he kind of went wild there. It doesn't matter that Paul is doing the same thing.

monty924 said...

Cody has a horrible social game... it's his own fault

Sharon S said...

Ramses = Urkel -- you are so right! lol

Joe in NY said...

I feel like Ramses is lying to us. He tells us he doesn't want to throw it. He tells us he tried to throw it. What's the truth?

monty924 said...

That was for edit... pure and simple

JonMD1267 said...

Do he do that lol

Joe in NY said...

Cody definitely would do it again. He told Jessica so much when she wanted him to say, "Baby, I would have thrown it all away to stay with you for one more day!!!! xoxoxo"

Paul will likely be toast when he's eligible to go. He seems stronger now than I think he really is because of his 3 week safety medallion. No one is going to make moves against the sitting HOH when it's two more weeks before he can be targeted.

Petals said...

the fact that Ram was so harshly punished only because he did so well in this comp...tells you something

Joe in NY said...

Honestly, it looked like Urkel tried to win. But given how horrible pretty much all of the times were, he would have had to take a two hour nap to make sure he lost. I mean, didn't he get all but one of them wrong?

Nickelpeed said...

What does the Halting Hex do?

monty924 said...

Here we go.........

Joe in NY said...

Jessica is doing the usual dumb thing that some showmance does every year. Instead of moving ahead and trying to re-establish relationships in the house, she locks herself in the doomed relationship undermining her own future game.

JonMD1267 said...

wa wa waaaaaaa

Nickelpeed said...

I just do not like Josh. Dang, he's so unbearable.

JonMD1267 said...

tell me how you really feel lol

David said...

Halting Hex lets the owner stop an eviction night and make it a non-eviction night. Basically a re-set button.

Joe in NY said...

I guess he can bite Alex now.

tbc said...

It's very hard to judge how badly you're supposed to do in a timed competition. Ramses is 21 years old. He could have thought he was blowing it...

JonMD1267 said...

I love when they play the character and integrity cards lol

Joe in NY said...

Seriously? Halting Hex is an eviction reset? How the eff does Christmas get the lamest temptation of them all?

Anonymous said...

Hate Christmas & Paul!!

Nickelpeed said...

Looks like all of them were on Paul's side anyway. We know who's going to go, unless something happens fast. LOL

Thank you for hosting us Jackie. Appreciate it. See everyone tomorrow night.

Joe in NY said...

Josh was right about Jessica, though. She risks sinking her own ship along with Cody's.

Nickelpeed said...

Yeah, I know Joe. I think it's because people felt sorry for her. Well, the Halting Hex would be good for Cody to get. hmmmmmmm. LOL

Joe in NY said...

I'm not understanding the Christmas hatred. Is everyone Jewish?

But seriously, what am I missing in the feeds? She was virtually a non-entity on the TV version this week.

Judi Sweeney said...

Splash..... I was afraid I wasn't going to make it! I hate traffic! Hey Everyone!

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

monty924 said...

Lol, Joe.

Thanks Jackie. Will see you all in the comments later. TOmorrow night is another HOH that will play out on the feeds. Please let it be endurance!!!

David said...

Thanks Jackie =)

Everyone have a great night.

JonMD1267 said...

Thanks Jackie, see you guys Thursday night, everyone have a good one!!!

Jackie said...

Joe - She can be quite sharp-tongued and controlling.

Cheryl in NC said...

Goodnight Jackie and all

monty924 said...

Penny, Cody will already be gone. That's a wasted vote. imo

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, oh well. LOL. Now I need to figure out who else should get it. I've read, anyway, that production does not like Cody. So, I'm not surprised.

Judi Sweeney said...

Well, I at least got my toes wet! LOL... Thanks Jackie... See everyone tomorrow!

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Judy, BB was on at 8 p.m.

tbc said...

Thanks, Jackie!!

See everyone tomorrow!!

Anonymous said...

I believe this about production not liking Cody because he went after their golden boy right off the bat Paul!

monty924 said...

I don't blame production. He lacks awareness of how he comes across with his scowl and staring at people in the house. He's downright creepy. I haven't liked him since the feeds went live and can understand why others, including production, aren't warm to him. js

monty924 said...

And just to add... if he smiled more and warmed up to others like he acts with Jessica, that would go a long way towards making him more human. Problem is, he doesn't and probably won't even if he wins a battle back or whatever they have planned. He's just anti-social in there.

Sharon N said...

Since the plan is to get out Ramses next, it would be kind of funny for him to get the Halting Hex...especially if it actually is an eviction reset.

Anonymous said...

I have never posted here but i like Cody. He doesnt play by others rules. Yes, his social game could be a lot better and he went too hard, too fast. But that is who he is and i respect that. I might be the only one but i am hoping he stays, or gets to come back.

Anonymous said...

Hey Anonymous couldn't agree more! I think Cody is more serious because of being a vet. I have seen him smile in there. He was even laughing when they got the toad costumes

chrob61 said...

Nicklepeed- from what I understand, the Halting Hex is a power that lets you Halt the eviction, just before Julie announces the results of the live vote. The eviction is halted, and then they will continue as if it were a non-elimination week. Kinda like a non-elimination leg on The Amazing Race.

chrob61 said...

PS, I think this would be a really good one to give to Kevin. I think he would use it wisely.
