It was an emotional evening in the Big Brother 19 house as tears, both real and fake, were spilled after Josh made his nominations and Alex started to see the writing on the wall.
Catch up on Friday’s Daytime Highlights report before reading on through what happened overnight.
Big Brother 19 Live Feed Highlights – Friday, September 8, 2017:
5:41 PM BBT – Feeds are back from nominations. Alex is crying to Josh that he betrayed her and she trusted him.
5:45 PM BBT – Josh leaves the room and Alex tells the cameras she was fake crying.
5:47 PM BBT – Now Josh is crying and he tells Christmas and Paul he feels terrible for what he’s done to Jason and Alex because he likes them both. Paul tells Josh he’s being duped by Alex. He says don’t fall for her tears.
5:56 PM BBT – Christmas reminds Josh that Alex can’t be trusted and needs to go. She says Alex will keep messing with his head to make sure he doesn’t win veto so she can try to win it and stick around and retaliate against him.
6:00 PM BBT – Alex tells Paul she can cry on command. She tells Paul she thinks she convinced Josh to use the veto on her if he wins. But then she says she’s afraid if Josh does that he’ll try to backdoor Paul. She says she doesn’t believe Kevin is the target.
6:06 PM BBT – Paul tells Josh that Alex says she can cry on command, confirming what Paul said about her just gaming Josh. Paul tells Josh and Christmas that Alex said they made a mistake leaving Christmas in the game because now she’s trying to win.
6:16 PM BBT – Paul tells Kevin as long as Alex doesn’t win veto they’re good. He actually tells Kevin to try to win it.
6:43 PM BBT – Alex tells Paul he needs to win the veto so he can save both of them.
6:45 PM BBT – Alex says they want to take herself and Paul out because they’re good competitors. She then says they’re going to let a gimpy girl (Christmas) win the game. Alex tells Paul he is the only person she trusts and that Josh has gone rogue.
6:56 PM BBT – Paul telling Josh that it’s the two of them in the Final HOH and one of them gets to pick the other to sit next to them in the final two chairs. They both agree that Christmas acts like she won’t be upset if she gets cut at the end.
7:00 PM BBT – Paul working on getting Josh to name Christmas as the replacement nominee if someone uses the veto (so he can keep his nomination record clean).
7:05 PM BBT – Josh is panicking over Kevin winning next week’s HOH. Paul says if Kevin wins and nominates Josh and Christmas and Josh wins veto, don’t use it. He says he’ll be the one voting and save Josh (seriously, he said that).
7:33 PM BBT – Josh is alone and cam talking. He says he doesn’t know if he should flip the game and try to get Paul out this week. He says he knows he can beat Alex or Kevin in the end, but not Paul. Josh wonders if he should pull Alex down and put Paul up. He’s worried that Christmas will take Paul to final two instead of him.
7:38 PM BBT – Josh says he feels really alone and like he’s been played. He says Alex and Kevin would both take him to final two over the other, so he thinks it would be smart to get Paul out now.
7:40 PM BBT – Josh confirms that what he wants to do is win veto, save Alex and put Paul up. But he also says Alex won’t vote out Paul over Kevin. And neither would Christmas, he decides. He says it is probably a better idea to take the shot at Paul at final 3 – cut him then and take Christmas to final two.
8:55 PM BBT – Alex tells Paul she’ll try to convince Josh to put Christmas up instead of Paul if someone comes off the block with veto.
9:03 PM BBT – Alex asks Josh when the plan to evict Jason was enacted. Josh says he never actually planned to vote out Jason. Josh tells her that if they talk it has to stay between the two of them. Alex says she’s all alone now so she wouldn’t have anyone to tell. Josh tells her that Jason was going to be too hard to beat.
9:06 PM BBT – Alex tells Josh that it was a good game move but as a friend, it wasn’t cool. Josh agrees.
9:09 PM BBT – Alex tells Josh he will lose to Christmas, who had everything handed to her or Kevin, who lied his way to the top.
9:10 PM BBT – Josh says getting Jason out broke his heart but he knows that Big Brother will enhance Jason’s career (well…).
9:12 PM BBT – Alex guilt tripping Josh again. She tells him she always had his back and didn’t even put him up after her evicted Jason. Alex says she doesn’t know if she wants to be friends with him. She starts crying and says he’s not playing a friend game. She says she’ll give him a fair shot but she doesn’t feel like being his friend at the moment, especially if she’s voted out this week.
9:15 PM BBT – Alex tells Josh he’s done this to her three times now (Jillian, Jason and now her) and after each time she still protected him. More fake tears. She starts talking about how loyal she’s been to everyone.
9:17 PM BBT – Josh tells Alex she has the veto still. She says it doesn’t matter now because if she wins Paul or Christmas will have to go up. Alex says after Jason left, she thought it would be the two of them and Paul since they all worked the hardest. She again says what Josh did isn’t good on a friend level and she doesn’t think she can forgive him this time.
9:19 PM BBT – Josh asks Alex for a hug but she refuses and leaves the room.
9:20 PM BBT – Christmas comes in and ask Josh what that was about. He doesn’t say anything and she asks if he’s not going to talk to him. Josh said it was more of the same thing. Christmas goes into how Alex is just playing on his emotions. Christmas asks him why he’s moping over Alex.
9:21 PM BBT – Paul comes in and asks what’s going on. Josh says Alex is upset. Paul says it’s all fake Josh said he told them all the heat was going to be on him. Christmas says if he’s going to have a woe is he moment, she can’t listen to it. She says she needs him to snap out of it and either be their teammate or let Alex ruin his game.
9:23 PM BBT – Paul tells Josh that Alex knows that his biggest issue is wanting to be friends with everyone outside the house and she’s using that against him.
9:24 PM BBT – Paul tells him that Alex is a game player and she wants to convince him to save her so that she can turn around and sweep him. Josh asks Christmas and Paul why they’re acting so concerned with him right now. They said because he’s acting like he’s depressed and she’s making him vulnerable.
9:25 PM BBT – Christmas tells Josh that emotional exhaustion is harder than physical exhaustion. She says he needs to shake it off or he’s not going to be 100 percent for veto.
9:27 PM BBT – Christmas says unless Josh wants herself or Paul to go home this week or next week, then he needs to snap the F out of this funk. Paul says Josh is letting Alex play him. Josh says he’s fine.
9:30 PM BBT – Josh tells Christmas won’t beat him or Paul in veto. Christmas says they can’t be too sure about that.
9:35 PM BBT – Paul reminds Josh that the two people he (Jo) wants out of the game are on the Block right now, so he should be happy.
10:10 PM BBT – While alone, Paul reveals to Christmas that he was on Candy Crush. Paul thinks Christmas could get to do it too.
10:15 PM BBT – Paul compares last season to this year and says he played more strategy this time around since last time he was fighting for survival instead of having the chance to plan.
10:35 PM BBT – Paul suggests to Christmas that Kevin may be colorblind which would hinder his chances at BB Comics for seeing all the differences.
11:50 PM BBT – Alex talks with Paul about her conversation earlier with Josh. She says he told her she was too strong a competitor so he wanted her out and that Josh told her “I don’t think I can beat you or Paul.” Alex says she hopes Paul can win Veto for their best case. Paul asks who she thinks the two of them could beat. Alex says Kevin and Christmas are a maybe, but against Josh she thinks Paul would sweep it. Alex promises to campaign for Paul in the Jury if she goes before him.
12:20 AM BBT – Christmas is giving Josh a peptalk and he’s returning the praise.
12:25 AM BBT – Christmas tells Josh he needs to get his head in the game or either her or Paul could be going home this week. They talk about vision issues. Josh says he needs his glasses but his mom sent him contacts instead but they hurt so he doesn’t wear them. Christmas says she’s farsighted so she should be good for that comp.
12:40 AM BBT – Paul has joined the talk and retelling BB18 stories.
12:50 AM BBT – Paul, Christmas, and Josh discuss Kevin’s chances at the end. Paul is telling them that most of the Jury members would vote for Kevin over any of them.
1:02 AM BBT – Paul tells Josh that Alex told him Josh was going to get out her (A) or Paul because they were too strong of competitors. Josh denies it. Paul says he’ll use that as an excuse not to use the Veto if he wins it. Paul says she wants to use Paul to take out Josh if she stays this week.
1:50 AM BBT – HGs are settling in for the night. Kevin is staring off in to the darkness but awake. Alex, Christmas, and Paul are chatting in the rose room.
2:00 AM BBT – That’s it for the night as HGs are asleep and resting up for Saturday’s Veto Comp.
Josh has a lot to consider on his shoulders, but he can’t make any real decisions until after the PoV is over and we’ll know more then. Josh seems to know he needs Paul out, but he’s been so dependent on Paul for so long that I’ll be amazed if he takes a swing. Then again, if anyone is going to do it in these last few days, it’s probably going to be Josh.
