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! 

Recap, recap. 

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.

Had to toss the bowl of soggy chips.


monty924 said...

Glenn said...

Hi Jackie and everyone!

monty924 said...

Hey Cheryl

monty924 said...

And Glenn

Joe in NY said...

Ho Ho Ho, folks

Sharon N said...

Slip slidin' a cold maggie to Monty!!

monty924 said...

That was a big backfire on you, Jessica!

tbc said...

Hi everyone!! I have Pinot Grigio and smoked ribs. They have been cooking all day. The backyard smells fabulous.

monty924 said...

Omg, LMAO

Petals said...

~*~*~* SPLASH ~*~*~*~*

Hello!

Joe in NY said...

What is the matter with Josh? And what is the matter with the people that think Josh pushing around the minority is so funny?

Cheryl in NC said...

What an ass

monty924 said...

Hey Joe and tbc... the ribs sound awesome

Joe in NY said...

The only thing wrong with this week is that it is pretty much all for naught.

Petals said...

mmmmm ribs & strawberry shortcake

monty924 said...

See, you can't strong arm someone if you don't give them all the facts. Poor gameplay on Jessica's part.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Jackie and Vincent. Thank you for hosting us!

Hi Monty, CherylNC, Joe, Glenn, Sharon, TBC, and all who follow.

Sorry, but I don't think Josh is funny. We know who set him up to bang and drum all day and all night. LOL

uncartie said...

Hi everyone. I might be in the minority Josh cracks me up me up me up

Cheryl in NC said...

Yes Joe but it will be fun when she halts the eviction

Petals said...

yes Joe - thankfully! Paul think Josh is America's fave, which is ludicrous!!!

*drink* meatball

Nickelpeed said...

But he trusts Paul? Boy, these sheeple are so funny. Paul is going to win this game.

Petals said...

what Cheryl said...

Joe in NY said...

On the bright side, if Cody or Jess or Mark win HOH next week, I think we can be pretty sure that Paul and Josh go up.

monty924 said...

Hey Petals... I agree, just like a backyard bbq only at the pool

Nickelpeed said...

Paul thinks Josh is America's fave???? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL. Josh our fave? LOLOLOLOLOLOL

Petals said...

Paul threatened Jess, that if she uses the Hex, she will be the next to leave the house. So who is the bigger jerk in the house? not Cody.

Cheryl in NC said...

Josh America's fave...bwahahaha..now that's funny

uncartie said...

Cody AKA GI Jackass

Petals said...

LOL Penny!

tbc said...

This is the best place to be on a Sunday night. Love watching BB and reading everyone's clever comments. Thanks for hosting, Jackie!!

Cheryl in NC said...

From your mouth to the BB gods ears ,Joe!!

Joe in NY said...

I don't know, Monty, I think Jessica took her best shot. She exaggerated the power in hopes that she could preserve the power. She suggested that she and Cody couldn't be nominated for a couple weeks, hoping Paul wouldn't nominate. If she told Paul the truth, that it was a single use save, then he's going to nominate her anyway to flush the power out.

The only other thing she could have done is not mention the power at all and see if Paul didn't nominate her. But I think she's smart enough to know that really wasn't an option.

Until one of the Cultists breaks free, we can be pretty sure every week is Paul against Jody until one of them gets got.

The only real mistake Jess made was not swapping Ramses for Paul which would have guaranteed a Josh eviction. But, she got misted...

Nickelpeed said...

Well, Jess and Cody need to start playing smart. If this happens and one gets the veto, put another one of Paul's minions up. They need to start playing as if they want to win.

Sharon N said...

If you think about it, not many of these people like each other much this year. LOL
Which brings to mind... out in the yard today, I think it was Kevin mentioned to Jason/? that they need to start thinking about getting Paul out. hmmm

Jackie said...

I called Josh out as a jerk pretty much when I saw his Jeff interview pre-season. I think they're all laughing because (A) they don't like his target(s) and it's not them he's targeting with his idiocy and (B) he's not a contender to win. If ever he was in the final two, even against a pot of slop ... the slop would be voted the winner by the jury.

Petals said...

Agree Joe!!!

Cody tried to protect Mark.
I don't see why everyone hates him. He isn't half the jerkweed that Paul is.

Joe in NY said...

Paul really is a bit of a jerk. Don't get me wrong, he's winning the game, but he's a jerk nonetheless.

Petals said...

Paul got STELLA in his basket. lol

Petals said...

^5 boyfriend.

Cheryl in NC said...

So I have decided that Paul wants Cody or anybody else out that he can't control. The rest of the folks are just steeple...Brilliant on his part..but makes the rest of them look like fools

monty924 said...

LOL, Jackie. Agree, the pot of slop would win. :)))

Petals said...

you ARE that dumb!

Joe in NY said...

Jackie, I agree with you about Josh. But it still strikes me as borderline bullying. It's 9 against 3 and the 9 just take a lot of pleasure in the unhappiness of the 3. They could just use the numbers and power and try to evict the 3. Instead, they revel in rubbing their noses in it every chance they get.

Petals said...

Jackie - BWHAHAHA!! You are right, the pot 'o slop would win!

Cheryl in NC said...

Sheeple not steeple...damn auto correct

Nickelpeed said...

Paul doesn't believe the power of the temptation. He thinks Jess is bluffing. He's more worried about the curse that goes with taking the temptation. Neither he nor Jess realize that the curse was the temptation games where the person in last place has to go up on the block as the 3rd person.

Paul believes production hasn't released the curse. He believes the curse won't be released until Jess uses her temptation. And, he believes it's going to be bad.

Petals said...

again, ^5 Joe. Right?????? No one else sees it, they are so blinded by Cody-hate.

SueGee said...

~~~~SPLASH~~~~~~~ Made it tonight!!! I need a strong drink and a place to relax a little! Been a rough week - husband had a heart attack and I'm the exhausted one. (he is home and doing fine, but sick men are babies always)

Thankful for the updates and being able to keep up with BB this summer through Jackie!!

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Joe in NY said...

Elena is a bit of a byotch. By the way, when you call your relationship a "showmance", aren't you pretty much acknowledging that it's fake.

jennifer said...

Elana finally said something smart!

monty924 said...

If I were in that house, I would rather have a constant target like Josh in there before a Victoria, or any of the other perpetual pawns.

Sharon N said...

Jackie posted re Elena not wanting to be evicted due to her showmance and look that dumb:
"Too bad. That ship has sailed." LMAO!!!

Thanks Jackie... that made my day!

Petals said...

Raven is Paul's Victoria.

Joe in NY said...

I don't know. I think Cody is trying, but no one really wants to welcome him back. I'm really becoming more interested in how the Numbskull Nine envision the game going once it is down to 9. Is there a 5-4 suballiance? Multiple suballiances? No plan whatsoever?

And if you are in a subgroup of 3 or 4, you are a minority in your own alliance, so you need at least one or two outsiders to flip the script...if you are even trying to win the game, that is.

Feed watchers, has anyone talked about what happens once it's down to 9?

monty924 said...

Hi SueGee. Sorry to hear about your husband. Prayers that the recovery is smooth.

tbc said...

Oh, SueGee, I am so sorry. I hope he is well now.

Petals said...

No, Joe. They all ONLY talk about Jury (and that is rare; they usually don't discuss it at all)

Petals said...

Sorry SueG *hugs*

Petals said...

Cody & Jess are a pretty couple

tbc said...

Are those cat ears "eco-friendly"??

Joe in NY said...

Gee, Elena trusts Paul. I guess she doesn't know that he calls her "Plan B". :)

Sharon N said...

SueGee,
Sorry to hear about your husband's heart attack, but glad he is doing well.

Petals said...

NOT COMPETING to show Paul your loyalty?? What?? "Best for the group"?

Yes - Cheryl, Sheeple!

Joe in NY said...

ooo...Mark has said 18 words this week!! A new record!

tbc said...

The Friendly Ghost speaks

Cheryl in NC said...

That's right Matt...play Paul's game....geez

Joe in NY said...

Glad to hear your husband is on the mend, SueGee!

Petals said...

Here's the fun comp, Monty!

monty924 said...

So Raven didn't compete but wore Matt's tutu around afterwards. Lame

monty924 said...

Yes, Petals. One of my favs, LOL

Nickelpeed said...

SueGee, sending prayers to your husband and you. God bless you. What a week for you. Please keep us posted. I am so sorry. <3

Anonymous said...

Suegee...glad your hubby is home and doing well

SueGee said...

Thanks everyone for your kind wishes.

Petals said...

exactly, Monty. She wore his tutu all night. @@

LOVE Jason - he is just having fun! ♥

monty924 said...

OMG, I'm dying, LOL

Petals said...

LOL!!!!!

monty924 said...

Once you're down, stay down you dummie... crawl up there

tbc said...

I guess Rideo clowns don't spin...

tbc said...

*rodeo

Nickelpeed said...

This is too funny. LOL

Nickelpeed said...

I don't know tbc, rideo seems appropriate after all those spins! LOL

Petals said...

last time we saw this comp, they were SICK afterwards.

Petals said...

LOVE Jason! He, Alex & Kevin are my faves.

tbc said...

Lol, Nickelpeed

Joe in NY said...

Mark may break the mechanism if he hangs from it.

monty924 said...

Austin was the last one to win this comp. MaCrae won it the year before. They did a spinny comp last season with crawling through a tunnel and building a wall of dog bones.

Jackie said...

So sorry to hear the news about your husband, Sue. I'm glad to hear he's home and okay.

Nickelpeed said...

OMGosh! a big lemon with a dash of lime! heeeheeeheee

Petals said...

DRINK

uncartie said...

I don't even remember this comp. You're amazing Monty

tbc said...

That was fun!!

Joe in NY said...

Your man is safe and it doesn't feel good. Run, Mark, there are better options in that House.

Nickelpeed said...

I think what's funny about this is they had all these people who are against Jess and Cody, but the one person they did not want to win, won. How funny.

Petals said...

Monty & Jackie are like Rainman with Big Brother. I don't know how they remember everything...

Nickelpeed said...

I know, Petals, they are amazing!

Petals said...

Cody & I. Grrrr

Nickelpeed said...

Paul doesn't believe Jess for one second. He calls her bluff, he will be sooooo surprised. He just doesn't think it's what she says.

monty924 said...

Lol, unc. They've used it a few times. Amanda puked her guts up in her season.

SueGee said...

I'm with you Petals...I promptly forget most of the players/comps etc when the season is over. Only some remain in my head forever and ever good or bad (Rachael) LOL

monty924 said...

When Austin won it, it was a knock out veto and one of the twins (Julia, I think) did something stupid for Vanessa and Austin had to play when he wouldn't have otherwise.

Glenn said...

SueGeeI pray your husbands recovery goes well!

Petals said...

Paul has been ragging on Cody all day, calling him "little man". Which is hilarious, since Paul is what? 5'2", 3"?

tbc said...

Put on a shirt...

Petals said...

wow

David said...

Thanks Jackie =)

Prayers for your husband to make a full recovery SueGee.

Everyone have a great week.

Nickelpeed said...

Thank you so much, Jackie. Appreciate it.

I work Wednesday and Thursday, so I will miss all this fun. I'll check here periodically.

Have a great week everyone!!

Petals said...

Love it. What a waste.

Thank you Jackie!!!

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

Cheryl in NC said...

It's just as well that they use the hex this week.It would go to waste next week if they were to win hoh next anyway,which is a real possibility.

monty924 said...

Thanks Jackie. Will see everyone in the comments. Have a great week otherwise.

SueGee, keeping you and your husband in thoughts and prayers.

Joe in NY said...

What do they know about the Hex at this point? Do they know it won't be revealed until Thursday?

Nickelpeed said...

SueGee, sending prayers. Hope he fully recovers.

Cheryl in NC said...

Thanks Jackie as always!! Have a great week everyone!

Sharon N said...

Thank you Jackie... see y'all on Wednesday!!
(Now I get to watch the show!)

tbc said...

Will miss you, Nickel

Cheryl in NC said...

Joe ,sounds like they don't think it exist

uncartie said...

Thanks for hosting, Jackie

tbc said...

All the ribs were eaten!! Yay!

Have a great week. See you Wednesday everyone.

Thanks, Jackie!

Nickelpeed said...

I was looking at you tube feeds and they do not know a lot about the Hex, Joe. She's told them that it will mean Cody and she will be safe for a few weeks. Of course, they do not know it can only be used once. Jessica is embellishing it. Bottom line is Paul does not believe it. He also believes there will be more to the temptation punishment than just the temptation challenges. He even told her that the it doesn't bother him she took the temptation, because he did; but he more scared of the punishment. They just don't understand that the punishment has already been given.

jessica UNderwood said...

This is stupid. Why make Someone waste their HOH?!
