Now that Jessica, Cody, Elena and Mark are out of the Big Brother 19 house, it’s time for that giant alliance to draw a line in the sand. And sine Jason is the first official HOH after the two main showmances were axed, he has the honor.
But let’s first see how Jason got there. The episode starts during the Head of Household competition. The HGs are all hanging on in their hot dog buns getting sprayed with ketchup and mustard. But before we go any further, we’ve got to address those weird eviction votes from Alex and Jason.
We cut to the Diary Room where Alex tells us that only Jason was supposed to vote for Matthew to be evicted. The plans was to throw the rogue vote in there so that if Matt or Raven win HOH they could frame Kevin. But she says she had a bit of a mind slip and also voted for Matthew. Smooth, Alex. Maybe if you weren’t concerned with giving shoutouts you wouldn’t have messed that one up.
Back at the HOH competition Kevin is the first person to drop from the wall after 17 minutes. And Matt drops just three minutes later. Josh falls after 30 minutes and Raven already starts talking about making deals. She asks Paul, Alex and Jason what they want. But no one is ready for a deal. And before anyone can say anything Paul and Raven drop.
That means Alex and Jason are the final two on the wall. Alex starts asking Jason what he wants from her so he can drop. And he says he wants to win. She says fine then she’ll drop when he offers her something. She says she wants safety this week and a jury vote. Meanwhile, Matt is calling how shady it is that they’re still up there. Paul and Josh also seem a bit confused as to why they’re still up when they’re each other’s ride or die. Jason finally promises her safety and she finally drops. Jason is the new HOH.
Even though Matt and Raven are the targets this week, Josh and Alex start complaining about Kevin (which is something Alex has been doing most of the season). Josh says that Kevin keeps flipping out about the rogue votes so that must mean it was really Kevin.
But elsewhere Jason tells Kevin that one of the votes was him and he thinks the other one was Alex. Oops. When Alex finds out Jason told Kevin, she freaks out. She asks why he’d tell the guy they were trying to frame. Probably because he likes Kevin and doesn’t want to frame him, Alex.
And since this cast is growing more and more boring every episode, we finally get a filler Raven segment. And it’s not going to do Raven any favors in the America’s Favorite Player race. It’s a segment all about how everyone in the house thinks Raven is a compulsive liar and they show us all the clips the Live Feeds watchers have been talking about all season. For example: Her mom has been struck by lightening and Raven has an inverted spine.
Enough of that. It’s Tree of Temptation time! OHHHH EXCITING! Who is going to be tempted! I cannot wait for this! Just kidding, no one takes an apple. They know it’s a crappy twist and too many bad apples. You failed, production.
So now that we’ve exhausted all the episode filler, let’s find out who is Jason going to target this week. The original plan was Matt and Raven, but Kevin has been made to look bad by Alex, and Paul is frustrated with him also. So it sounds like it could go a number of ways this week. Jason could backdoor Kevin or just use that as the ploy to keep Matt and Raven feeling safe this week and blindside one of them.
At the nomination ceremony, Jason goes with Matt and Raven. Of course, Matt and Raven think Kevin is the target so they’re not really too concerned. But again, after Alex and Jason framed Kevin with those votes, who knows what can happen this week.
