Big Brother 19 Spoilers: Week 2 ‘Den Of Temptation’

Houseguests were gathered for the reveal of this week’s “Den of Temptation” and we’ve got the latest spoilers on which of them landed the power thanks to your votes.

Den of Temptation on Big Brother 19

Our own poll showed Christmas at the top of the list to win this one with Alex not far behind her. So how did those results compare to the real spoilers today? Read on to find out who now has the chance to swap themselves out for a chance to play in an upcoming Veto comp.

Spoilers: Den of Temptation – Week 2

Christmas won the Ring of Replacement Temptation!

Flashback to 5:37 PM BBT Cams 3/4 to watch as she makes the secret reveal to Paul in the HoH bathroom. Christmas reveals that not only did she get the reward, Ring of Replacement, but she also got to pick the 3 HGs who would be cursed, though she does not yet know what the curse will be.

Cursed HGs: Cody, Jessica, & Ramses Jason (Seems Ramses couldn’t be cursed 2x in a row.)

Update: The curse is for those 3 to be dressed in frog/toad costumes all week as V-Toads.

Christmas says she has only told Paul. No kidding. It took us forever to find out who got it, though based on our poll this is what I expected. Paul advises her not to tell anyone else. She hopes they don’t have to use it this week.

As a reminder, here’s how the official description of this week’s power will work for its holder.

The winning Houseguest will be tempted with the Ring of Replacement, which will give them the power to play in any Veto Competition they want this summer! If they’re not one of the six houseguests playing, they can swap places with one of the three players chosen by random draw. The Ring of Replacement can only be used once, but remember, every temptation comes with a consequence.

So Cody is dunzo. If his name is drawn for the Veto comp then Christmas could use her Temptation power and knock him out of the comp. That’s probably it for Cody unless there really is a Battle Back in two weeks!

Next week’s power is the “Halting Hex” which will cancel an eviction. Now that’s powerful stuff!

With Paul’s big plan to Backdoor Cody ready to be set in to action this twist had a fun potential to throw a wrench in the works, but do you think that will actually happen now?

  1. Ok, now, if Cody is not one of the nominee, and get chosen to play veto, Christmas can remove him and take his place. That way Cody cannot win veto and can’t prevent Paul from renomming him for the back door. Obviously Paul or someone that work with him has to win veto, so it can be use.

    Ok, that can work.

    • I didn’t even think about that one! So if Paul nominates Cody, and Xmas takes his place in the veto comp, it would be a nom and backdoor…

      • No, if Cody is a nominee, he cannot be remove. Christmas can only take the place of one of the 3 chosen players.

      • Christmas has to replace one of the three random players that were drawn, not either of the noms on the block. That’s what I thought you meant, so if Paul now knows this, he could go ahead and nominate Josh and Alex to go on the block. Then hope that Cody is picked to play veto, so Christmas can use her temptation option!

      • They should not waste it this week. Let Cody play. If he wins, they can target him next week. And vote Alex out this week.

      • I dont think Alex would go after xmas soon tho, due to the sympathy factor. Plus she appears to be working with paul, a close ally of xmas. Cody on the other hand has shown he is after both payl and xmas, so it sould be in xmas’s best interests to go after cody first.

    • Take note of wording “they can swap places with one of the three players chosen by random draw.” Not the noms themselves.

    • That would be perfect!!! And would accomplish Paul’s plan to BD Cody bo Boady! Just hope it’s a comp that Christmas can play in!

  2. Nothing and I think she should hold onto it until she is on the block and Paul isn’t sitting next to her. I wonder if that either holds off the curses or if it is like what Raven, of all people, suggested that it nullifies their votes.

    • Yeah…I don’t see how he stays at this point. This week is locked in! The only exciting thing would be if he actually got picked and the power used. I expect Jessica to self-evict at that point!

  3. Well seems like Cody’s fate is sealed. The only way he can get out of this is if he and Jessica BOTH get picked and Xmas can only replace one of them. And tbh, I don’t really want him to get that lucky.
    On another note, Xmas is DUMB to be revealing this. The only circumstance that she needed to CONSIDER revealing it was if Cody or Jessica got picked to play in the veto and she had to play it to kick them out of the comp. And for a sec I thought Xmas might be that strong independent female that takes out Paul in the long run, turns out I shouldn’t be too hopeful of that.
    Paul has said it himself… newbies are SO dumb

    • Also another option. If Ramses wins the pov wouldn’t you think he doesn’t get a replacement nom? In bbott America’s nom didn’t get replaced if they won veto.

    • Agreed. Nobody else will try to take Paul out and it will be boring. I don’t hate Paul but we need to keep cody for entertainment value. Also I was thinking, maybe if Ramses wins pov paul doesn’t name a replacement since Ramses put himself on the block. I notice that hasn’t been clarified… hmm

      • Paul’s “plan” was stupid from the getgo. He should have put Cody and Jessica up to begin with … especially due to all the crazy powere floating around.

      • That’s what I wanted him to do too and let the chips fall where they may!

      • Yal got it wrong. Ramses is supposed to throw the veto. The deal is that Ramses put himself up this week as a favor to Paul’s army to get out Cody in exchange for safety. He only need Ramses to fill up more spots narrowing Cody’s chances of getting picked to play. Ramses really don’t have choice to say no because he’s in a bad place in the house.

      • What kind of entertainment is Cody providing? It’s like looking at a stone wall.

      • Not Cody himself. The whole Cody vs. Paul storyline would have been entertaining. Now it’s going to be boring with no drama

    • If he does he will be out soon still. The guy cant play big brother. Hes too dumb. There was a much smarter way to do it and it definitely wasn’t week 2 with 15 players still in the house. He needed to build a more solid foundation. Paul can talk his way out of a lion’s mouth! I knew paul would run circles around that meat head.

  4. So, who do you think should get the haulting hex temptation? I’m thinking Dom…

      • That could blow her cover with Paul though…
        I like the Paul/Alex combo…

      • Me too. And I’m so scared at his power that might eventually make bb19 become a Paul dominated season.

      • Yep! There’s just so much blind trust, it’s mind-blowing to watch!

      • Me too. Maybe if Paul struggles a little this season and plays as an underdog I might start liking him. Otherwise, I’m writing Paul off after some comments he made that I personally didn’t like

      • He’s started out too intense this early. But he was blindsided and had to reveal his temptation…

      • The Paul/Alex combo that is one-sided at best if Alex decides to pour heart and soul out into it

  5. I’m more interested with the three HG’s that are cursed..That’s funny. What’s gonna happen to them? I wished I had that power, Put a cursed on three people I know. lol

  6. What I wonder is… if Cody is cursed but he gets evicted and comes back into the game is the curse still in effect or is anything players have when it comes to the den of tempatation (curses particularly) that have no expiry date (possibly) become null and void if someone is voted out regardless of their return?

    • The curses are only valid the week they were given it. This DOT could have been played any time throughout the rest of the season. Paul’s was only valid for three weeks.

  7. Baby when it rains it POURS! LOL so Ramses, Jessica and Cody are cursed? Do i have that correct?

  8. Why Ramses? These people need to leave the poor kid alone. I hope he wins HOH next time.

    • Because Ramses is pretty much the Andy of this season- spreading around information to everyone. He tends to eavesdrop and nobody seems to trust him

      • He’s young..not yet seasoned like the others are! He just got through the potty-training stage, right?

      • LOL, yeah, sure. I think he seems like a really nice kid but very naive and maybe too nice? Not too sure about the last part but he is definitely out of his element and hence isn’t very vocal and doesn’t join in with the group.

      • If I recall, neither was Steve Moses at first. Took him a good 2 weeks to start engaging with the others.

      • True dat Joni!!! I knew from the start Steve had it in him to take it to the end, just didn’t know if he would be able to actually implement it, considering he had a very formidable opponent in Vanessa. I did’t really like him a whole lot but was very excited about him winning. I don’t know if Ramses has that in him, but you never know.

      • Yea i would akin ramses to steve moreso than andy. Couldn’t stand Andy but he was way smarter than ramses. Andy would have voted the majority and made it known.

      • But if my recall is correct, Steve was well-versed on the game … do you think Ramses did as much to prepare? I give a lot of credit to those who work to really study the game beforehand.

      • Ramses said he’s watched BB since he was 8 yrs old, so how much he watched and studied it is still to be determined. He hasn’t shown a lot of what he knows yet, but it’s still early. Seemed like the first week was the longest week ever! hahaha

      • Pssst, over here. Yeh, you. Come a little closer. She was referring to Ramses. Don’t tell her I told ya, k?

      • Ramses really hasn’t spread much of anything around. He has been set up to make it look like that, though.

      • Is he making trouble and lying to people? I haven’t seen that yet, I hope he is nothing like the horrible Andy.

      • No, I don’t think he is making trouble. I think people have targeted him because he is an easy target.

      • Oh no. He’s not an Andy. They are on to Ramses. Andy wasn’t discovered being sneaky untill the end! Lol by then it was too late! He’s a knock off Andy lol

      • I agree, so what if he is a little out there, he hasn’t done anything to warrant what they say about him.

      • And as we’ve seen, sometimes in BB the truth hurts you than the ones you told it to.

      • I say that because they are being bullied a bit in this game. They don’t deserve it. There are snakes in there that does. Aka kevin and jason. I hate them

      • Maybe Kevin told Ramses in secret to act like he flipped the house, but not to tell anyone else, especially Alex and Jason.

      • It would have been right thing to do. Maybe Kevin will let Ramses know right before the next eviction.

      • Yea. Didn’t he get in Ramses face? He already had lied on him, he didn’t have to get in his face too!

      • I didn’t see that, but it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. Kevin is certainly pushing the agenda of Ramses being the “culprit” for sure and everyone believes him.

      • Correction: flashback, lol Kevin didn’t get in Ramses face. That was rumor. My bad

      • I know you were like, huh? What is he talking about?? Lol what actually was wanted to stage that confrontation, ran it by Paul and he advised against it. I think I have it right now. If not just smile and nod. Lol

      • I wouldn’t mind Josh winning. I like what I see and he is some good feeds.

  9. This seems all well and good, but one thing worries me: if Ramses nominates himself for the 3rd nominee, and THEN he wins veto, clearly he’s gonna use it on himself! At that point, Josh and Alex are stuck on the block.

    • Well the plan is for Ramses not to use it if he’s working together with the group to get cody out. But this is big brother. If Ramses is not going to honor it then paul is screwed

      • They are guaranteeing his saftey in exchange for the favor of putting himself on the block this week.

    • Do we know if someone would go up to take Ramses place as a third nominee or would that just be it and it’d go back to only two for the week?

    • I was under the impression he would cancel out one of Paul nominees, that would mean that there is only two people on the block but hey, I have been wrong before and I will be wrong again.

  10. I kinda feel bad for Cody. When’s the last time someone’s just been so utterly shut down by twist after twist? A twist ruined his HoH, and now a twist will (potentially) deprive him of his chance to save himself.

    • Grody ruined his own HOH, period the end. He could have salvaged all of that mess if he was open with his alliance.

  11. What’s with the feeds? Is there a comp coming right now? All I see is the cats.

  12. I wonder if somebody will ever turn down the temptation? If so would production reveal what the consequence would have been? Would they have told the audience that Paul was about to come in the house but nobody took the $25k? I bet they would have found another way to bring him in.

  13. Feeds are back. Ramses put himself on the block. Paul nominated Alex and Josh.

    • How did I miss that. I have been watching it and didn’t see Paul nominate anyone.

      • What is the point of paying when they don’t show everything. I’m cancelling before the next month.

      • It’s been like that since the beginning. Nomination/Veto/HoH/Eviction ceremony are taped and shown for TV viewers…OTT version was different.

      • I paid for it last time when the show was online so I got used to watching it that way. Thank you. I won’t do it again.

  14. Ok so Paul nominated: Alex and Josh so if Cody gets picked to play he’s ghosted by the DOT lol..

  15. Kevin is schooling Holena on money and crime terms. LOL

  16. Everyone is out in the kitchen eating but Grody and Messica, whom are sequestered away in their “love den”. Way to turn your game around kids. They really could make lemonade out of lemons if they made a serious effort to be with the others and try and enjoy their company.

  17. Cody is going to flip the F out if she have to use the DOT on him. They may need security up in there! Lol it will be some gooood tv!

    • I think Messica is more likely to flip out. GRody seems to be able to put a stop to a lot of his emotions, the very few he has.

      • But I wish someone would take his blood pressure when these blindsides hit him

  18. Poor Ramses! I don’t like the idea of the same hgs getting curse after curse. I’m not even really a Ramses fan but I feel bad for him. I’m all for an all stars season but I don’t like vets and newbies mix. He already had an advantage without production giving friendship bracelets, 3 weeks safety, etc. When they done the care packages they were less powerful in the beginning. How is 3 weeks safety for the first one justified. They knew Paul was getting it.

    • It is definitely slanted in favor of Paul…what a crock! Disappointing season

  19. What a waste to give this Temptation to Christmas! 10 to 1 she will not be able to finish the game after her surgery on Monday! I hope her doctor(s) explain to her how having pins inserted into the broken bones in your foot is a serious. Its not only painful but your bone(s) in her foot need to heal properly, her body needs to be given time to “accept” (not reject) the pins (foreign matter), and to set correctly in order to prevent any orthopedic maladies.Also, even if she can participate she will never be able to give 100 percent especially in a physical challenge. Unless, of course, she gets the Frankie “Nancy” Grande treatment, where all the challenges are biased towards her strengths/abilities! I give her props for wanting to continue, but in essence, she’s playing BB with “one hand/foot tied behind her back!

    Come back next year Christmas!

  20. Christmas got it. Like we all predicted. But Paul, what are you thinking by not nominating Jessica? You nominated Alex & Josh? You nominate Jessica and a pawn. That way, only Cody’s name can be pulled for veto. And if that happens, Chrismas could replace him. And if Jessica wins, she uses it on herself, and Cody get backdoored. But since you didn’t do that, now we stand the chance of both Cody and Jessica staying and creating horrible damage to the game. Paul you IDIOT! If both Cody & Jessica’s names get pulled for veto, Christmas can only take away 1 nomination. So assuming she takes down Cody, and Jessica wins veto, she won’t use it, and you just wasted your HOH, and your girl, Christmas, goes home next week. Paul, you better hope this works, because your plans has flaws all over the place. Putting up Jessica & a pawn was a flawless plan. America handed this one to you, Paul, and you do this?

  21. okay so…. I love Christmas to death. But we do know she’s basically unable to compete? Why did we give this one to her lol?

  22. Dominique the dominator show is dumb. It will be boring once Cody and Alex leave. Aside from Paul, they are really the only competitors.

    • You don’t win BB by being a competitor. BB is 90% social game, 7% physical, & 3% other. You need social game. And Cody has the worst social game in BB history. He has 0.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001% of winning. Best get him out now, bc he is toxic to that house.

  23. Looks like only way cody is surviving this week is if he and jess both get picked to play the veto, and one of them wins it. Playing it this week if cody gets drawn s probably the best move for xmas, since she probably will never win a veto given how the comps are usually physical, so there’s no point using it to try and play and save her allies down the road. If xmas actually had a chance of winning the veto this temptation would be more useful for her, but at least week 2 is turning out better for her so far.

  24. RANT…..BS boo 😒 BB (for the record I am NOT a fan of Cody! However……)
    This is NOT “organic” at all! I know to expect the unexpected…..
    When you go into a game, you should be able to at least fight for it. This just makes it completely impossible for a player (Cody) to play the game.
    It’s like shooting fish in a barrel & I feel like I’m watching people shoot fish in a barrel! This is way too easy!!
    As a huge BB fan since day one, I’m not liking some of these temptations! Cody might as well walk out the door right now. (Sure, stay, fight for your game & try to get votes!) Yes Cody made a HUGE/STUPID mistake putting up Christmas but, I strongly believe his HOH had some “unfair” disadvantages! & if this was an HG we all ‘liked,’ we would be pissed off! Clearly, I’m a little upset. I miss the BB that was more “organic” (less manipulated by production etc.)
    – Megan walks out so he’s ‘forced’ to renom (Alex) Blood x 3
    -His Veto Renom is destroyed b/c of Paul’s safety. Blood x 5 (Cody was the one who received the worst punishment for Paul taking the temptation!)
    -Paul technically gets 2 rewards. Safety & also gets a free pass to find out who he can trust & not!!
    -Technically 2 people receive punishments for Paul’s temptation. Ramses & Cody!
    I would love to watch a season of BB where it was more like the earlier seasons. No twists, Temptations …. just straight up head-to-head battle of the house!

    • Tina, I understand your frustration with the twists and their impact on Cody but you can’t overlook how Cody’s personality has impacted his game more than the twists. Cody could be a very strong player, he certainly has that potential. Unfortunately his ego gets in the way. Paul coming back into the game should not derail Cody’s game – in fact Paul was willing to work with him. Cody had built a strong alliance but he treated them as if they were simply his minions and never consulted them on going after Paul or Xmas because he knew better. He played too hard, too soon thinking he had the season planned out as to who would be in Jury and who would win (him). He has insulted people, stonewalled them and simply been a miserable, glowering a** For me, the saddest thing is not that Cody has been screwed by the twists but that Cody’s behaviour and attitude has led to the position he is now in. My rant now over, lol

      • Very fair Rant :-) and very true! And I totally agree with you regarding Cody’s behaviour and what not. Very very true!
        But these twist and Temptations still drive me crazy. LOL
        PS. Thank you for taking the time to read my crazy long rant 😜

      • Right but if it was one of the fan favourites so to speak, people would be furious at how unfair their HOH was. You know what I mean?
        It’s only because Cody is so disliked by most of us, so people don’t really care and are happy it happened to him.
        But I still want a more organic game. Regardless of my feelings towards him

      • I TOTALLY get it. I admitted production interference was obvious here. Normally I hate it but this time I was selfish and for my own satisfaction I enjoyed it. I hate Cody in this game; more than Aaryn, Evil Dick, Amanda and Jeremy put together. Lol those were the ones I could hardly stomach. He exceeded them! Not saying he deserved it but I loved it.

  25. So Ramses couldn’t be cursed twice? What if nobody in the house knew about the curse and Xmas tried to curse him?

  26. Stop already I hope their plan doesn’t work,I am sick n tired of watching these people kissing Paul’s ass
