BB19: Temptation Challenge and Nominations Show Blog Party - August 6
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 starts off with the Josh/Mark fiasco. Recap, recap.
Mark is worried, but he and Josh have made up. Josh tells him he won't be provoking him again. Mark hopes all is cool with him. Jessica and Cody are (rightfully) worried.
Paul points out how unhappy Mark and Elena seem to be with Josh's win. Alex points out to Josh in front of Mark that his "face was down" when Josh won. She has a long talk with Mark, starting out with an argument. She accuses him of playing both sides. He admits doing so to us.
Josh thinks he actually has four targets -- Cody, Jessica, Elena and Mark. Paul wants him to go after Jessica and Cody. Christmas points out that it's Josh's HoH, not Paul's. So ... it's to become Christmas's HoH? She wants Mark or Elena out because they're floaters.
A talk between Josh and Elena doesn't seem to help improve her standing in his book.
Paul thinks Jessica needs to go first out of the four targets. Christmas takes Josh aside and tells him she loves Paul, but don't do everything he says. She told him that he needs to be nice to all four.
Heh, Elena is definitely Josh's target. He thinks she's very influential to others while Jessica and Cody will always be targets. Josh thinks others don't see what he sees in the threat of Elena.
The Den of Temptation voice speaks to them warning them the comp will be in the morning. Jessica and Cody think they don't have much to lose and will both play in the comp. They hope one wins safety, the other might win veto.
Everybody except Christmas is drinking the potion to play. (No wonder the feeds were blocked for over ten hours for the comp!)
They have to find three written clues in the haunted house that will seal the rift between two worlds. Evil scary things are jumping out at them as they do the challenge individually. Jessica's plan was to throw the comp so Cody could win. She does just that.
Cody is safe. Jessica is the third nominee. Elena is worried that she will go on the block. Mark is just as upset.
Paul thinks they should target Jessica and not let her be saved with the veto. Josh still wants Elena out. Paul tells Josh to tell Elena it's a team effort and she's a pawn. Josh tells us again that she's his target.
Elena doubts Josh's reasoning that she is a good competitor and that's why she's a pawn. Josh thinks she's throwing Paul "under the rug." So he brings Paul in on the conversation. She kerfuffles about it but he says she will go up as a pawn.
Nominations ceremony time.
Josh nominates ... Mark, then Elena.
Mark, not really familia. Elena, good competitor. Josh tells Jessica he's gunning for her.
