After a mildly-dramatic Power of Veto meeting, the Big Brother 19 houseguests gave us one explosion after another for the rest of the afternoon. We had Jessica vs. Raven, Matt vs. Christmas. Josh vs. anyone who would listen. It was quite the day. Read on for all those details and more.
Big Brother 19 Live Feed Highlights – Monday, July 31, 2017:
10:30 AM BBT – HGs slow to get up as BB gets more upset with them. Jason and Kevin are up and chatting. Jason notes how Paul is pushing him to cause trouble at the Veto meeting.

12:10 PM BBT – Jessica and Cody talk about how many opportunities they have next week to keep themselves safe. She says if they don’t win any of those competitions next week, they deserve to go home.
12:15 PM BBT – Jessica tells Cody she’s not packing her suitcase this week. He laughs.
12:27 PM BBT – Josh tells Alex he thinks Jessica is going to use the Hex since Cody didn’t give a speech and she used hers to joke. Alex says she doesn’t think she’s going to use it.
12:28 PM BBT – Matt is using the trash can to drain slop. Slop that people are going to eat.
12:30 PM BBT – Jessica and Cody think Jason made some jabs during the veto ceremony only because Paul told him to. Apparently Jason said something about Cody not wanting to participate any longer.
12:34 PM BBT – Jessica says she’d nominate Raven and Alex and veto Alex to backdoor Paul.
12:38 PM BBT – Matt and Raven talk about the vote this week. Matt says it’s an easy decision for him to vote Cody out. Raven says she’s going back and forth. Matt says they don’t even know for sure IF they can even vote out Jessica. Raven says Paul says they can.
12:43 PM BBT – Kevin wonders if it’s going to be a null week. Jason says he thinks so and they’re both going to stay. Raven say that if Jessica was smart she wouldn’t use the Hex. Jason says they’ve already established Jessica isn’t smart.
12:46 PM BBT – Jessica confronts Raven about how it looks when she walks into a room and people point to Jessica and then change the subject. Raven tries to tell Jessica that hasn’t happened but Jessica doesn’t believe her. Raven tries to explain and wants to look her in the eyes but Jessica refuses and tells her she’s too pissed.
12:48 PM BBT – Raven pulls Cody and Jessica into the lounge to explain that they weren’t talking about Jessica or Cody when she walked in. Raven asks her to please not be this way with her. Jessica remains silent. Cody asks Raven why she’s so against him in this game. Raven says the whole house is against him. Raven says if she doesn’t go along with the house, she’ll end up with a target on her back.
12:51 PM BBT – Jessica tells Raven she just doesn’t have anything to say to her right now.
12:53 PM BBT – Cody tells Raven he was hoping that she’d respect them enough to let them be in jury together. Raven says she has to play the game for her mom and can’t risk a target on her back. She asks Jessica for a hug. Jessica gives her a tap.
12:54 PM BBT – Raven leaves the room. Jessica tells Cody that Raven is never going to go against Paul so Cody needs to stop saying anything about Paul in front of her. Cody tells Jessica he is so glad she is the queen of controversy and that she takes everything head on. He says “Gosh, it makes me proud to be your boyfriend.”
12:55 PM BBT – Raven tells Kevin, Jason and Paul what Jessica just said to her. They all agree they weren’t talking about Jessica. Kevin says he wants to go tell Jessica they weren’t talking about her.
12:58 PM BBT – Jason goes into talk to Cody and Jessica. He tells them that they weren’t even talking about her. Jason says Raven is crying. Jessica says the whole house has been conspiring against her the whole time and when people pretend they aren’t it’s frustrating.
12:59 PM BBT – Cody asks Jason when has he ever gone against him. Cody says he’s been loyal to him the whole game and has never once said anything against him. Cody asks what was up with that speech. Jason says since Cody returned, he feels like nothing is the same. Cody says he and Jason are the closest personalities outside the house and he’s surprised that Jason jumped to the other side of the house.
1:01 PM BBT – Cody tells Jessica that it’s fine that he’s not down in the trenches with him but when he gives a speech like that against him, nothing is gained from it. Jason said it proves plenty for himself and his game.
1:04 PM BBT – Jessica asks Jason what his wife would do if she was in the same situation. Jessica seems to think a 40-something-day showmance is the same as being married with children. Cody tells Jason just not to take it to a personal level.
1:05 PM BBT – Raven is in tears about the misunderstanding she had with Jessica. Kevin is annoyed that people get so testy over people talking. He says it’s impossible to avoid people in the house.
1:07 PM BBT – Kevin comes in and tells Jessica they absolutely were not talking about Jessica.
1:12 PM BBT – People keep interrupting the talk Jessica and Cody are having with Jason. Jessica says she’s never seen so many people scared of two people. She says it’s like they have weapons or something.
1:13 PM BBT – Jessica goes to talk to a crying Raven. Jessica tells Raven that she’s sorry she’s upset but the house needs to relax and that the whole “don’t talk to people” thing has to end. She said Jason was in there trying to defend Raven and people kept coming in like they are now. Jessica asks if they can go talk in private. Jessica tells Raven she doesn’t want her to cry over this and reminds Raven that Jessica is the one being attacked by everyone in the house.
1:15 PM BBT – Jason has to explain to Alex what he was talking about with Jessica and Cody.
1:18 PM BBT Jessica and Raven hug.
1:19 PM BBT – Kevin and Paul go into the storage room to find out what Jason and Cody and Jessica talked about.
1:21 PM BBT – Christmas and Paul go into the storage room so half the house is in there now.
1:24 PM BBT – Jason is questioning Cody’s military service because of the tape on his dog tags. Kevin has his doubts too.
1:26 PM BBT – Paul tells the group Jessica can use the Hex and they’ll declare war (haven’t they already?). He says using that will delay them getting to jury and they’ll be everyone’s target (they already are).
1:29 PM BBT – Matt talking to Jessica and Cody. Jessica tells Matt that she feels like a lot of people are playing the game by bullying. Matt says he wanted to make sure he told them that he has no personal issues with them at all.
1:38 PM BBT – Matt tells his group that he’d like for them to not attack Jessica and Cody all week and try to get her to not use the hex. Josh gets upset and says Jessica keeps attacking him so why can’t they attack them. Christmas tells Josh to shut up and then says just leave them alone and if she uses the Hex, they’ll regroup.
1:40 PM BBT – Matt is really trying to get everyone to understand that Jessica is just defending Cody and everyone else would do the same.
1:46 PM BBT – Paul says if Cody blows up again, she won’t use it. Paul says he’s not going to pump the breaks on torturing them. Josh doesn’t plan to leave them alone this week either because they’ve attacked him all week.
1:48 PM BBT – Paul looks at Josh and says “let’s make him snap.” Paul tells Christmas that Jessica wants them to be nice this week just so Cody won’t blow up. Christmas suggests they start questioning his military service to make him mad.
1:50 PM BBT – Josh puts on a tutu, grabs some pots and pans and gets to work.
1:54 PM BBT – Paul telling Matt why keeping the peace this week isn’t the way to go. He says she gets most upset when Cody blows up and if they get him to blow up she might not use the Hex this week. Matt says he will just always take the path of least resistance.
2:05 PM BBT – Paul tells the group that they can leave Jessica alone, but they have to keep Cody on edge. He says they’ve got to get him to crack. He calls for “emotional warfare.”
2:13 PM BBT – Christmas and Paul coaching Josh on what to say to Cody to make him blow up.
2:18 PM BBT – Matt says this is not a good idea. He says they’re putting people in physical danger now.
2:20 PM BBT – Matt says they are trying to get someone who has killed humans in combat to snap. Christmas says if he’s as disciplined as he should be then he won’t physically harm anyone. Matt asks Christmas how she will feel if Cody punches Josh. Christmas gets really mad at Matt for lecturing her. Christmas tells Raven to let her out of the F-ing room and to get Matt off her ass.
2:30 PM BBT – Jessica tells Cody that if she was watching as a fan, she’d be rooting for Paul, but since she’s in the game with him she wants him out. She says if he’s in the final two with anyone other than Cody, he’s getting her vote.
2:46 PM BBT – Jessica tells Cody that her biggest fear with using the Hex is whether or not it’s in his best interest to stay. She says he’s gone back and forth of wanting to stay and go and she knows that he’s better than this game and she’s scared for him staying in the game. She says she doesn’t want to later think he should have gone this week. He tells her that he needs a better week than this one and that he can’t go out like this. He promises her that he will 1,000 percent be in control this week. She tells him just to be smart about what he says this week.
2:48 PM BBT – Jessica says she’ll ask him again Thursday if he wants to stay. She says she doesn’t want force him to stay. She says if he does decide to go, she has a Plan B in place. She tells him that she made a deal that if she didn’t use the Hex this week she’d get two weeks of safety and that whoever wins HOH would target Alex. Cody doesn’t respond.
2:50 PM BBT – Josh yells into the room that Jessica and Cody are in that Cody should have thrown the Battle Back to Cameron. Jessica tells Josh to please stop talking. Josh starts cam talking to Cameron saying he should have fought harder to to get back in the house instead of the guy who has no social game and has to me muzzled by his girlfriend.
2:52 PM BBT – Cody says he doesn’t buy any deal they say they made with Jessica. He says he only acted like he wanted to go home because he thought lost her. So now he’s good to go. But Jessica keeps bringing up Cody going home, almost as if she wants him to tell her not to use the Hex. Josh keeps trying to bug them but they’re ignoring him and start making out instead.
Read what happened next with our Monday overnight Feed Highlights Report for the second half of the day’s events.
Paul and the others’ plan to make Cody snap is a scary and risky one, that I can’t imagine production allowing to move forward, but we’ll see. At any rate, I don’t think Jessica will be holding onto the Hex this week. She knows she has way more to lose by not using it this week. There is still that hint that she wants to hold onto and let Cody go this week, but she will most likely be saving them both this week.
