Big Brother 19 Underdog Report Week 3

Last week we introduced the Underdog Report and featured Alex, so it’s not too surprising that this week we’re taking a look at her closest ally Jason Dent, aka Whistlenut.

And the interesting thing about Jason is that in the past week, he’s actually proving himself to have a better grasp on the game than Alex. He’s talked her down from several bad ideas and is even trying to talk some sense into her with her overtures of Paul.

On top of that, Jason won the Power of Veto under Alex’s HOH reign, allowing the two of them to have control over the week. I didn’t say complete, because Alex would have still consulted Paul on everything. Jason, however, doesn’t much care about Paul’s input.

In fact, Paul wanted Jason to use the veto on Jessica this week so Alex could put Mark next to Dominique on the block. But Jason decided not to use the veto and when Alex pressed him to tell Paul the decision, he told her they don’t have to tell Paul everything they do because he’s not their dad.

It should also be mentioned that for a not-so-small guy, Jason held his own in this week’s endurance wall competition. He only threw in the towel after he knew Alex was about to secure the HOH, or at the very least, their safety for the week.

On the other end of all this, Jason has made some flubs. But who hasn’t already this season? For a guy who had never seen Big Brother before, he’s playing a better game than some of the biggest superfans we’ve seen in recent history. And that is why he is our Underdog of the Week for Week 3.
