It was a predictable and relatively uneventful week in the Big Brother 19 house as the house targeted the one last “outsider,” leaving most viewers longing for something a little more. So don’t be surprised if this week’s edition of Ewws & Ahhs have more ewws than ahhs.
The Best and Worst Moments of Big Brother 19 Week 8
Eww. That Friday Episode: How pointless was that “special” Friday episode of Big Brother 19? Not only did it tout Derrick, hardly a fan-favorite, as a “worth-it” special guest, it was a clip show! We were seriously being forced to watch things we had seen days or a week before. Something tells me CBS ordered that episode pre-season and then producers ran out of ideas to fill the slot. What’s even worst is that meant a Live Feed outage all night Thursday and most of Friday.
Ahh. Derrick Skips Over Raven. The only good part of that episode was Derrick didn’t even waste time talking to Raven. So we had no Raven montage. That really says a lot about her popularity (or lack thereof).
Eww. Christmas Wins HOH. I had hoped Mark could pull out a win to shake things up at least a little that week, but once again the same group keeps the power. So we all knew what was ahead.
Ahh. The HOH Competition. I love seeing new competitions or news spins on competitions. I thought that competition was a little easy, but it was still a fun one.
Eww. The New Twist: That temptation tree is just pointless. There’s only one decent reward on there and that’s the extra veto. I think these players have had enough advantages this season. Let’s get back to basics for at least a couple weeks, jeez.
Ahh. Mark Gets Picked for Veto: At least Mark got a shot to fight for his place in the game this week and couldn’t be straight-up backdoored.
Ahh. Zingbot. It was the return of Zingbot this week and that robot did not hold back. Josh’s and Christmas’ zings were a little harsh, but that’s what roasting is all about I guess.
Eww. Mark Loses the Veto: Well, so much for that. Definitely knew it was going to be a predictable week at this point.
Eww. The Veto Comp: Why did they do the slip and slide competition as a veto? We always get to watch that one play out on the live feeds and it’s always a long and enjoyable one. How disappointing.
Ahh. Mark Campaigns. Mark worked hard all week to survive the week. He made a lot of valid arguments and talked to all the right people. But in the end, Paul wanted Mark gone and what Paul says goes this season. Good fight, Mark, even if it was a bit too late.
Ahh. Endurance Competition. Finally, we get another endurance competition! Of course it played out on the Live Feeds, and this is a spoiler-free post, so that’s all I’m saying.
