Veto Day got off to an interesting start as the HGs were late to rise after a long night, but once they got rolling we had some good talks. Josh and Christmas came up with a plan to save her Temptation power and keep the target on Elena, but that soon fell apart and gave us even more drama for the day.
I’ve extended this post from earlier with the rest of Saturday’s events so don’t miss the additions for what happened after the Veto comp ended and we found out who won PoV this week.
Big Brother 19 Live Feed Highlights – Saturday, August 5, 2017:
9:25 AM BBT – HGs starting to get up for the day, but it’s a slow start.
10:00 AM BBT – HGs gathering in the HoH room for the HN reveal set up.
10:10 AM BBT – Josh reads the HN card to discover there are no new HNs this week. Elena still has a second week to go and will be in there alone. Mark offers to stay with her in there, but she declines.
10:45 AM BBT – Mark tells Cody again that he’s so glad he came back. Cody says the other HGs were trying to pit them against each other.
11:00 AM BBT – Kevin tells Jason and Alex that if Jessica doesn’t win the Veto then she’ll be home and back at work by the weekend.
11:05 AM BBT – Josh talks with Christmas about the players pick. Christmas says Paul wants her to use her Temptation power, but Josh says he doesn’t want her to do that.
11:10 AM BBT – Josh says he’ll tell Paul that he’s had Paul’s back in everything so now he wants Elena out, should Jessica win the Veto.
12:20 PM BBT – Jessica and Josh are talking in the Lounge. He’s wishing her luck. She explains how he wronged so many people at the start with the golden apple. Josh apologizes for the fights between them before. He’s trying his best to reconcile and Jessica is clearly still very annoyed with him.
12:35 PM BBT – Josh camtalks that he’s trying with her, but Jessica and Cody are still playing very personal with him. Josh wants to win the Veto so he has control. He wasn’t moved by her statement that her closest friends are on the Block since those were all the people who have gone against him.
12:50 PM BBT – Josh checks in with Christmas and says he’s got to keep his distance from Cody and Jessica now so no one catches on that he’s not targeting them. Josh again tells Christmas he doesn’t want her to use the Temptation power since he’s happy with all three people on the Block as possible targets. Christmas suggests to Josh that maybe he should save Jessica with the Veto if he wins it.
1:00 PM BBT – Josh thinks Mark and Elena are still together despite how they’re acting to try and suggest otherwise. Christmas agrees with Josh.
1:01 PM BBT – Christmas and Josh agree to go tell Paul that she’s not using her Temptation to change Veto players. Josh reaffirms that he likes his VTE-Elena plan saying she’s a middle ground player who could flip HGs.
1:10 PM BBT – Josh tells Paul that he doesn’t want Christmas’s power used. Paul resists a little. Josh says his targets are Jessica and Elena so one of them could end up safe and the other will go. Paul yields and tell Josh it’s his HoH so go with what he wants. Paul again warns Josh that Jessica and Cody would vote against him (J) in F2 but Elena would more likely be fair.
1:12 PM BBT – Paul reminds Josh that Jessica is the stronger player over Elena, but Josh disagrees.
1:15 PM BBT – Josh says he wants Christmas’s power saved for a more important opportunity. Paul says he thinks controlling the Jury is the most important thing they could do with it.
1:20 PM BBT – Paul says Elena is a good back up plan, but Jessica should be the focus. Paul tells Josh to go with what he wants since he’s HoH. Josh says he still doesn’t want the power used. Paul says okay.
1:25 PM BBT – Josh continues to push that he doesn’t want the power played. Paul says it isn’t Josh’s power to decide and using it would better secure their target (Jessica).
1:30 PM BBT – Christmas tells Josh that Jessica has done more damage and should be the one to go.
1:45 PM BBT – Jason promises Mark that even if things go wrong and he’s still up on Thursday night then he (M) won’t be going.
2:13 PM BBT – Feeds are back from picking players. Cody is crying. Christmas used her Ring of Replacement after he was picked. Alex will also be playing.
2:15 PM BBT – Cody was called to DR. “F**k you,” replies Cody.
2:20 PM BBT – Kevin tells Jessica that he’ll look out for Cody if she goes this week.
2:20 PM BBT – Josh tells Mark that he (M) is on Josh’s team now so they’ve got to watch each other’s back.
2:25 PM BBT – Jessica tells Christmas that her move with the Ring was a personal attack against her. Christmas says she likes Jessica personally and needs to figure out the difference between game and personal. Jessica says she won’t have a personal relationship with someone who is two faced.
2:50 PM BBT – Jessica and Cody grumble about Christmas’s decision to use the Ring. Cody says the men are afraid of a woman (Jessica).
2:55 PM BBT – Jessica tells Cody that Kevin offered to take him in if she leaves. She says that includes working with Paul. Cody says he won’t do that. He expects to always be the target and will go after whoever he can. Cody says Christmas is overcompensating because she thinks she’s a “dude.”
3:00 PM BBT – Josh tells the HoH crew to stay off of Jessica during the comp. He doesn’t want any verbal attacks at her.
3:15 PM BBT – Cody says he’s sad because he feels helpless and wanted to do everything he could for Jessica.
3:20 PM BBT – Christmas wants Elena to talk with Jessica and let her know this was not a personal attack like she thinks it is.
3:23 PM BBT – Christmas warns Josh that they have to get Jessica out now or he’d be going up. He agrees and says they’ll have to get Jessica out. She promises him Paul does have Josh’s back. Josh remains adamant that he doesn’t want Jessica harassed during the competition.
3:30 PM BBT – Cody tells Jessica that she’ll be remembered for fighting back against the whole house as a strong woman.
3:35 PM BBT – Josh talks with Alex that they have to win this Veto. He doesn’t want the noms to change and he still wants Elena out. Josh says he’s HoH and he’s still going to play his own game, not theirs. Alex promises to keep noms the same if she wins. Josh points out that if they keep Jessica and Cody in the game then they’ll always be targets before them.
3:40 PM BBT – Josh camtalks that he wants Cody, Jessica, and Elena out, but he wants Elena out now and during his HoH.
3:45 PM BBT – Josh says he thinks he can sway Jessica and Cody to vote for him in the end.
3:50 PM BBT – Josh tells Christmas that he doesn’t like how Paul tries to control everything. He doesn’t like how Paul tries to use personal things to get him riled up against others.
3:55 PM BBT – Christmas suggests that Elena and Paul have some sort of alliance going on and Elena will do whatever Paul wants.
3:57 PM BBT – Paul joins the talk. He wants Josh to be doing the pots & pans routine before the Veto comp. Paul tells Josh not to let them use his (Josh’s) emotions against him. Josh says he doesn’t want to see a repeat of what they did the other day to Jessica and Cody. Paul says it won’t happen again.
4:03 PM BBT – Feeds cut for the Veto competition.
6:27 PM BBT – Feeds are back.
6:28 PM BBT – Christmas and Josh discussing if Mark saves himself. Mark won the Veto. She says she’s willing to go up if they need a pawn. Josh says he may use Raven instead.
6:30 PM BBT – Alex tells Josh that Mark might be willing to not use the Veto.
6:35 PM BBT – Christmas and Paul strongly agree that it needs to be Jessica who goes this week.
6:45 PM BBT – Mark confirms to HGs that yes, he’s going to save himself with his Veto win.
6:55 PM BBT – Christmas says she would have had few chances to use the Ring of Replacement so she went for it.
7:00 PM BBT – Josh proposes to Mark that he not use his Veto. He suggests that’ll help people trust Mark more. Mark declines.
7:03 PM BBT – Cody tells Jessica that he wants to get out as many HGs as he can on his way out. He’ll start with Matthew and Raven.
7:07 PM BBT – Mark tells Josh that Cody will be his target next week.
7:15 PM BBT – Jessica says she wants Cody to get Paul out. He promises he’ll try.
7:50 PM BBT – Alex, Josh, and Christmas are annoyed that Mark is using his Veto to save himself. Christmas suggests that Mark winning was proving enough and doesn’t have to use it.
8:00 PM BBT – Josh tells Christmas to stop saying she’ll be the pawn since Raven is spreading that. Both say they’re sick of Raven. Josh is worried that Paul will tell Elena that he (J) wanted Elena out. Christmas says Paul wouldn’t do that.
8:05 PM BBT – Christmas is pushing Mark on telling him he shouldn’t use the Veto and how it’ll isolate him in the game with others upset at him.
9:10 PM BBT – Matthew agrees with Christmas and Josh that Mark shouldn’t use the Veto. He says it’s unnecessary and they all made Jury so that should be enough.
9:20 PM BBT – Josh suggests that it makes Mark look like he’s with Cody by using the Veto on himself.
9:25 PM BBT – Paul tells Josh that they can’t blame Mark for saving himself with the Veto. Matthew now agrees that it’s okay for Mark to use the Veto, but thinks the benefits for trust building would be better for Mark to pass on it.
9:30 PM BBT – Matthew and Raven both agree that they’re okay going up as a renom. Raven points out that if she has to go up as a renom for Mark’s move then she can use that as justification later to nominate him.
9:40 PM BBT – Kevin suggests to Paul that they give Cody a chance to play since they have the advantage over him. Paul says they need to wait and see if he wins HoH or not.
9:45 PM BBT – Jason tells Josh to pick Matthew over Raven as the renom. Jason thinks it’d be better to keep Mark for now anyway. Josh says he’d rather see Mark, Cody, or Elena go before either Matthew or Raven.
9:50 PM BBT – Paul advises Elena to keep her nose clean this week and steer clear of Cody and Jessica so no one gets suspicious.
10:05 PM BBT – Paul wants Josh to try and get under Cody’s skin. Josh doesn’t seem to think it’s necessary and no one else is going to be doing it.
10:15 PM BBT – Paul again defending Mark’s right to use the Veto on himself. Jason agrees that it’s not a big deal to do that.
10:20 PM BBT – Christmas asks Josh who they should target for BD next week. Josh suggests Cody. Christmas says she’s confused and thought Cody was gone already.
10:30 PM BBT – Cody tells Jessica that he’ll still talk with Kevin, Mark, Elena, and Jason.
11:35 PM BBT – Mark tells Alex there is no way he’s not saving himself with the Veto.
11:50 PM BBT – Josh says his style of game play doesn’t involve paranoia. At least not anymore. He says he’s willing to just talk with other HGs.
12:20 AM BBT – Josh, Paul, and Elena have been hanging out in the HoH room for awhile now just chatting about life.
12:45 AM BBT – Christmas doesn’t like Jessica continuing to play the victim when she knows she’s going. She suggests Jessica should try to enjoy it and have fun for the last few days.
12:50 AM BBT – Few of the HGs gathering in the kitchen for a grilled cheese cooking session with Josh.
1:20 AM BBT – Paul observes that last season they never got the warning to “settle down” but this year they’ve had it a lot.
1:40 AM BBT – Cody and Jessica are back up and having a snack after Jessica was laying awake in bed for awhile.
2:30 AM BBT – HGs finally starting to settle in for the night.
3:30 AM BBT – Mark is staying in the HN room with Elena. They’re curled up together and kissing.
The pressure is on Jessica here heading in to the comp. Josh might want Elena out, but Paul won’t vote her out and apparently Christmas is only delivering Josh lip service at the moment. The others are likely to follow Paul as well if there’s still a choice to be made on Thursday night.
