BB19: Temptation Challenge, Nominations Show Blog Party - July 30
As the show airs here, I'll be live-blogging and constantly updating this entry -- refresh the page to get the latest! As always, the real party is in the comments area. Come join in on the fun!
After the recap, Paul thinks that Jessica is bluffing with her announcement that she has the power to keep her and Cody safe. Cody admits Jessica is much better at the game than he is. Well, heck ... ALL of them have a better social game. Elena is all upset that people lied to her. Josh thinks that he should irk Mark and starts banging pots and pans to wake him up.
He says he wants to bond with Mark. He runs around dancing to his circus theme. banging pots and pans claiming it's his last day. Mark tells us he's nauseous about having to deal with Josh for another week.
Jessica tells Cody that she wants to convince Paul to nominate two other people so the hex could be used next week.
Elena is shunning Mark and the world. Mark tries to make good with Cody. Cody tries to make good with Matt. Matt tells us voting Ramses out was best for his game. Cody tells us he doesn't like or trust Matt.
Paul thinks he should call Jessica's bluff and put both Jessica and Cody on the block. He gets his allies to back him up with the move.
Cody talks to Paul and brings to light a new target -- Mark. That's because Mark is his buddy.
Paul is still in secret cahoots with Alex. He tells her that he's going to put up Jessica and Cody. If Jessica and Cody come down, he'll replace them with Mark and Elena. Of course, he doesn't have the power of the hex right. He plants seeds with Elena that Mark is ruining her game because Mark has reattached to Cody.
Elena tells us she can't leave the house due to her showmance -- "I can't look that dumb."
Too bad. That dumb ship sailed long ago.
She talks to Mark. Now Mark is upset.
The Temptation Challenge is announced as the consequence of the acceptance of the final temptation.
Cody wants to compete in it. Jessica thinks that would be foolish because she wants people to believe they're safe. Elena thinks if she doesn't compete, it will show Paul she trusts him. Alex thins it's exciting but will do what's best for the group. Paul thinks Matt should play, so he'll do it for Paul.
Jason, Matt, Alex, Mark compete in the comp. Paul isn't too happy about Mark competing -- he was the Plan B eviction.
Big Brother Bowlarina. They get tutus. It's the comp where BB makes them dizzy and then they try to bowl. This comp is always a hoot to watch! Jason has to keep spinning and spinning to get time to nail his four pins. 3.37 on the clock.
Alex is having trouble throwing the balls hard enough. Her time is 1.39.
Mark spins slowly so he doesn't get as dizzy. It's working. He also has a lot of power. He takes the lead with 1.18.
Matt's up next. His time 2.34.
Jason will be on the block. Mark is safe for the week.
Cody tells Mark that Paul threw a fit when he saw Mark's time. They think it's Jessica, Cody, Elena and Mark against the rest of the house.
Elena had earlier agreed that she would be a pawn for Paul.
Jessica is being vague about her temptation with Paul. She once again indicates she can keep herself and Cody safe for the next few weeks.
Paul says he needs a strong pawn against Elena. Alex volunteers. Matt reluctantly says he will do it if he must. Paul is thinking that if he nominates Jessica and Cody, they can't be nominated. He's wrong on that, we know.
Paul and Jessica talk some more. He still thinks she's bluffing right before nominations.
Time for the nominations!
Jason is already on as the third. Paul nominates Jessica and then Cody. Paul says that he nominated them because they were vague about the temptation. Elena is relieved. Jessica claims she's surrounded by idiots in the house and his HoH is ruined -- she tells us this.
