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.
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.
