We’re down to eight votes this week on Big Brother 19 with three nominees leaving us with the chance of a tie-breaker situation with Josh at the helm. So who is going this week? Let’s take a look.
The top targets for the majority going in to this week were Jessica & Cody, but Cody won his way to safety with the Temptation. Now we’ve got Jessica on the Block along with Elena, Josh’s preferred target from earlier this week, and Raven, the renom’d pawn.
Josh let us know via camtalk on Friday morning that he wanted Elena out for her quick-to-flip form of loyalty and central position between Jessica, Cody, and Mark along with her connection to Paul. It seemed semi-reasonable for him to go after her, despite his situation with Cody and Jessica, but the house has pressed on him to reverse course and stick with the group’s/Paul’s plan.
If Josh had been able to sway the group then he would have only needed four votes to reach the tie and send Elena out. He could have gotten there, in theory, with Alex, Christmas, Jason, and Kevin, but the support isn’t there. Alex gave Josh a lot of smiles and nods, but as soon as he’d turn around she’d tell Jason they weren’t doing that. So there went half of the votes he’d need.
Even Christmas made it seem like she was willing to go with getting Elena out, but that seemed to be a ruse to appear very supportive of Josh and build his confidence in her. Eventually she turned that support around to getting Josh back on track to targeting Jessica.
Out of the eight votes it looks like we’re going to get Alex, Christmas, Jason, Kevin, Matthew, and Paul voting against Jessica. Cody has said he’d vote against Raven, no surprise, and maybe possibly we’d see Mark do the same since he isn’t much of a fan of hers, but since Mark is so concerned with appearing to rejoin the main group he could also end up voting against Jessica.
As for Raven’s chances of being evicted, I don’t think they’re very strong. Even if you saw Cody and Mark vote against her you’d still need another three to avoid Josh breaking a tie to keep her, if that was his decision.
If the Big Brother eviction vote were held today then I’d expect Jessica to be evicted 7-1 or 6-2. We’ve still got two more days until that vote happens, so anything is possible, but it’d take something big for folks to change at this point.
