BB19: Power of Veto Episode Blog Party -August 2
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!
Time for a recap!
Okay, nominations are over. Paul is thinking all is okay because he put Cody and Jessica on the block together and nothing seems to have happened. Jason feels safe being the third person on the block.
Paul has Jessica and Cody come up to his HoH room. He tells them that he believed they had safety when he put them on the block. Jessica tells him that it's bad for him, drops a hint or two. Paul tells them nine people wanted them up. Cody gets quite argumentative. Paul tells him to leave the room. They argue back and forth. Cody calls him a character on a show. Paul tells Cody to grow up.
Now Jessica is telling Cody that "at the end of the day," this is a game. She tells him he escalated the problems. She tells him it's the second time he's made her go through this. She's ticked. He seems to think nothing's his fault. She tells him he's a hothead and wonders if it's like that outside the house. She needs to be alone.
"That's why I'm single," Cody mutters.
Josh spouts off about Cody. Mark tells him to shut up. Ohhh ... a heated kerfuffle complete with name calling. Josh starts up with his circus music, grabbing pots to bang. Mark goes to him, grabs the pots and acted like he was going to swing one. Kevin intervened.
Little boys at war, I say.
Cody brings Josh into one of the bedrooms and they grouse about Josh. Mark tells us he was bullied as a kid, but no one does it since he went to the gym. Cody tells Mark that Jessica is mad because he reacted to Paul telling her to lower her voice. He says her default will be to always blame him. Whatever.
Paul goes to Jessica, telling her that he assumed Cody and her had safety and he would put two others on the block. Jessica tells him that she'll need to use the hex. Paul admits to being a character on the show, but says he won't fist fight with some kid. He tells her Cody is highly emotional and she needs to make a decision.
Paul tells Elena he knows about the hex and it will make it a "dud week." He tells Elena that if people can't get Cody, they'll go after her (Jessica). Paul, the Showmance Killer, is back. He wants Elena to convince Jessica to let Cody go this week.
Elena tries to convince Jessica not to use the hex and let Cody go home.
Jessica tells Cody that she represents her family and her job, must act responsibly and not be a hothead getting into fistfights. Cody is weakened when confronted by her. Will he start making victim noises? He tells her he just wants her to be happy. She is worried that's how he acts in the real world. He admits, at times, yes. Not the right answer, buckaroo!
Elena honestly thinks Jessica's best move would be to let Cody go home. Meanwhile, Cody and Mark are talking. Jessica thinks his behavior is unacceptable. Cody tells Mark that Jessica has a chance to win if he's out of the game.
Oh geez, Jessica and Cody are hugging again. He tells her he wants her to win the game because she can. He tells her that she would do better without him. He also said he hates Paul and will react every time such as he did. He has no friends, is single and has little family. Oh my, boy does have enough issues to be a lifetime subscription!
Finally, the BB Weather Update airs, most go to the HoH room to study the BB storms shown on videos to them. The storms are all named after evicted hamsters.
Veto Player Pick time -- Paul picks two chips out of the box. He gets himself. Because of that, he goes for Kevin. The other one is Raven. Because of the three nominees, the pick is done this way.
This comp is a hoot! Jason Thinder is first. They have to fill in the name of the storm while reading from the teleprompter screen during rough weather. Cody Cloud. Raven Rain. Kevin Lightning. Jessica Puddle. Paul Bluster.
Raven - 16
Cody - 15
Paul - 22
Jason - 15
Kevin - 16
Jessica - 12
Paul wins the Power of Veto!
Paul talks more to Jessica. He tells her that Cody said in the beginning that the only reason he wanted to keep Alex and Jason in the house was because they would take out Jessica and Raven. She makes a deal with Paul that she has safety from the block and Alex out.
And, that's how they leave things ...
