It was quite a messy and dramatic week in the Big Brother 19 house as fight after fight went down all leading up to a wasted HOH by way of a non-eviction. So let’s get right to the highs and lows of the week.
The Best And Worst Moments of Big Brother 19 Week 5
Eww. Cody: This week Cody became someone I can’t root for. I’ve been enjoying his hilarious demeanor that is really just him being himself and I’ve been enjoying his drive to play the game. But this past week, he really ruined any kind of progress Jessica made repairing her game. He also proved that he’s a guy she probably won’t be too compatible with outside the house. I’m not one to talk about showmances or personal relationships of HGs, but I just don’t seem them making that great a match outside the game.
Ahh. Jessica: Putting up with Cody this week wasn’t easy for Jessica. It wasn’t made an easier by everyone trying to convince her to not use her power and send the only ally she has in the game home. Luckily, Jessica is a smart girl and is playing the game hard, so she knew better than to take part in Cody’s demise this week. She keeps Cody grounded. I can only imagine how hotheaded he’d be without her in the house.
Eww. Mob Mentality: I refuse to use the word bully because these people are adults who signed up for a reality show that has a disclaimer attached to it. So no, I won’t ever use that term here. But I can use the term Mob Mentality. And that’s exactly what went down in the house this week. Everyone ganging up on Cody and Jessica like that was only to try to make Cody crack. What you didn’t see during the live show’s edits were Paul and Christmas really leading the charge to make Cody so mad this week he’d snap and Jessica would refuse to use the Hex. There was even talk of using Cody’s military service against him, as some of the HGs don’t think he’s being honest about his service. A lot of the actions this week were not OK. Drama and bickering is fun, but there are always lines a human being shouldn’t cross, even for TV.
Ahh: Jessica and Cody Stay Strong: There were times when the mob got to Jessica and Cody and they even discussed walking, but they eventually came around and handled it all pretty well.
Eww. Too Much Showmance: Wednesday night’s episode was ALL showmance. There was even sappy music. Ugh. I appreciate that Cody and Jessica are fighters in this game, but they just met 40-something days ago. Save the romance for Bold & The Beautiful.
Ahh. Jessica Uses the Hex: Of course she used it! It’s good they get to fight another week and that Paul had to waste his HOH sort of like when Cody wasn’t allowed to put Paul up. It’s almost like they’re even now.
Eww. Josh Wins HOH: I know this technically starts Week 6, but it was at the end of Week 5 and we saw it live, so I’m going to talk about it anyway. I feel in order to keep the great narrative of this season going, Cody or Jessica needed to win HOH. And since someone from that HUGE side of the house won, it’s going to just be another week of trying to get Cody or Jessica out. That’s getting tiresome. I wanted a power shift and I wanted to see it not be wasted like the last time Jessica was in power. Man, she really messed that HOH up.
What would you say the best and worst moments of the week were?
