Sunday night’s episode of Big Brother 19 had one major theme: everything is happening way too fast this season. But before we jump the gun like this season, let’s start from the beginning of the episode.
The episode picks up right after Cody nominated Jillian and Megan for eviction. Paul is shocked that he wasn’t nominated, and rightly so. “What part of almost won last season isn’t clear to you,” Paul says in the Diary Room. But for some reason Cody is just focused on getting Megan out.
Megan is immediately in tears and in the Dairy Room telling us that she doesn’t know if she can handle this game. Jillian and Josh are having similar feelings. I don’t know about you, but it seems way too early for so many people to be freaking out this much. It’s going to be a long season for them. Well, for some of them …
Speaking of things happening too fast, we’ve already got a house full of showmances and a montage about that to suffer through. *Mutes the TV*
Let’s get back to the good stuff. Josh is still complaining about being in the house and being homesick. And things don’t improve when he volunteers to be a have-not only to find out that he’ll literally be sleeping on a bed of spikes.
But that drama is nothing. Let’s get to the real drama. Jessica decides to start calling Alex “Pao Pao,” after BB16 Paola, but Megan apparently hears “Panda” instead, and goes and tells Alex. So that’s decidedly racist and Alex is not happy with Jessica. When Paul finds out and tells Jessica what is going on, Jessica decides to go set things straight with Alex.
Jessica tells Alex that she did not say anything racist and that Megan is just trying to stir the pot since she’s on the block this week. Alex believes Jessica and begins to doubt Megan, who was one of her main allies.
Alex decides to call Megan out so she goes to the kitchen and confronts her in front of everyone. Despite what Alex believes, Megan stands by what she heard. Alex is done with her, though. What ever Megan’s plan was with this, it definitely backfired. Megan is now public enemy number one.
It doesn’t take Megan long to know she’s in way too deep, so she heads to the Diary Room where she decides it’s impossible for her to calm down. She ultimately decides she can’t continue the game and never reemerges from the Diary Room.
Production fills in the other houseguests that Megan has decided to leave the game. They tell the HGs that due to a personal matter, Megan will no longer be participating in the game this summer and Cody will have to name a new nominee the following day.
It’s Den of Temptation time! Jessica is up first. She heads into the den and finds an envelope with her name on it. She has not been chosen by America. Kevin is next in and, he also didn’t win the power. Josh is next and didn’t get the offer either. Christmas is next. OK, this is going to go on forever. Let’s cut tot he chase. Paul is the one who got the temptation. He receives the Pendant of Protection so he’s protected for the next three evictions. That also means one of his housemates will be vulnerable the next three weeks.
Paul has to blindly select which of his housemates will be cursed. He chooses a number at random, cursing the unknown houseguest. The HGs find out that the temptation was accepted and that the next time they’re called into the den they should be worried…
But before we find out who is cursed (which won’t be in this episode), we have to find out who Cody has decided to nominate in Megan’s place. Cody decides to make Alex the new nominee. So it’s Jillian and Alex on the block ahead of the first Power of Veto competition this season.
