After a long day of competing on Friday the Big Brother 19 Houseguests were settled in on who would be going up on the Block and who would be the target. Of course there are several different opinions on the latter which makes today’s Power of Veto competition very important for the dueling agendas.
Update: Results are in! Find out who won the Veto this week on BB19!
On Friday morning we discovered Josh had other fish to fry than getting out either Jessica or Cody. He actually wanted Elena out this week. Well that’s different. Most of the house was anticipating Cody and Jessica being his target so he would have to do some navigating to get his target on the Block instead. Cody and Jessica helped him out with that one.
When the Temptation Competition was over we found out Cody had won and would be safe this week. Meanwhile Jessica managed to come in last and get herself a spot on the Block as the 3rd nominee. That meant Josh would have to pick two new nominees instead of either of the easy choices. Well that turned out to be his lucky comp, huh?
Soon Josh had Elena and Mark on the Block and began working the house to make Elena his target. Paul doesn’t like this too much and wants Jessica out. I suspect several of the other HGs agree and see her as more threatening than the laying-low Elena. Would any of them stick their neck out to save her though?
Elena believes she’s on her on in the Veto competition today. She’ll be up against Josh, Mark, and Jessica for certain. That leaves two spots for picks and Paul has already been working on Christmas to have her Ring of Replacement ready to go in case Cody is drawn. They don’t want Cody to have the chance to help save Jessica. Remember that as the 3rd Nom, if Jessica comes down there is no replacement which would leave Mark and Elena in the hot seat for Thursday. I think Josh would love that.
We’re waiting on the player draw later this morning but if Cody is drawn then it’ll be very interesting to find out if Christmas was willing to use her power here. Paul wants her to do that but she sounded a little resistant to the idea. However, Christmas is closing in on Josh’s side and he might actually like the idea of Jessica having a better shot at rescue so I’d guess he wouldn’t want Christmas to use her power and reduce Jessica’s odds.
As for Mark and Elena’s chances, I don’t see anyone else being drawn that would helping to save them with a Veto win. Mark and Elena will be on their own for this one. Josh definitely isn’t going to save them. He said last night that he wants to win the Veto and keep his noms the same. Not sure if he’d be so bold as to openly show his plans by saving Jessica, but hey, why not at the point that he could have Elena secured on the Block for Thursday night.
We’ll keep watching and waiting for the players to be decided and then on to who pulls off the win. Do you want Josh to get his way and Elena move up to being the main target or are they better off going after Jessica this week?
Update: Players were picked and ended up with Alex and Cody. Josh and Christmas were ready for this they had several extended talks about how she should not use her Ring of Replacement from the Den of Temptation so swap out Cody for herself. They even went and talked it through with Paul so he wouldn’t be surprised when Christmas didn’t use it… Guess what. Yep.
Christmas went and used her Ring of Replacement on Cody after he was drawn from the bag! Good grief. I don’t think this was a good strategy move for Christmas. She could have kept that power all season to use for herself in a pinch. Josh was happy with all three Noms as solid targets. But no, Christmas took out Cody from up’ing Jessica’s chances and making Elena all the more likely to head out this week.
Feeds returned to Cody sniffling and Jessica calling Christmas’s decision a personal attack. Nah. It wasn’t a brilliant game move, but just because it was bad for Jessica’s game doesn’t make it a personal attack.
Veto comp has finally begun as Feeds went off at just past 4PM BBT. This will likely take at least a couple of hours, maybe much longer.
