With the finale of Big Brother 19 less than two weeks away, it’s time for another double eviction as we go from seven HGs down to just five. Paul has had control over the entire season, but the chaos that a DE brings is always a challenge. But the real shocker is that this Winter, celebrities will be entering the house and playing the game.
Jason vs. Kevin
Kevin doesn’t understand the plan while Alex is ecstatic that Kevin is going home. Jason also feels safe and Kevin mopes around, thinking he’s being evicted. Paul’s plan to keep his hands clean is to have Josh and Raven vote to evict Jason while he and Alex vote out Kevin. Josh is uneasy that he and Christmas are getting all of the heat while Paul is safe.
This weighs heavily on Josh’s soul. He feels badly that he’s blindsiding Jason, but he’s also upset that this is hurting his game because it makes him look like a snake.
The First Eviction
Jason wants them to keep him in the house. Kevin says hi to his wife and all of his kids. He thanks everyone for the great summer.
Alex votes to evict…Kevin
Raven votes to evict…Jason
Paul votes to evict…Kevin
Josh votes to evict…Jason
It’s a tie!
Christmas votes to evict…Jason
Jason is evicted 3-2!
Jason, Alex and Kevin look shocked while Christmas and Josh cry. Jason simply walks out without saying anything. Afterwards, Paul starts a fake fight with Josh, acting like he would’ve been evicted if he was on the block.
Jason is totally blindsided and wants to go back in for just five minutes. He has no idea what happened and is trying to process it. Josh’s goodbye message reveals that Paul was behind the plan, but Paul’s message claims that he was on Jason’s side and will help Alex. Ooh, Paul lied and Josh blew up his spot. Not owning his game could definitely result in a bitter jury and cost Paul the win.
The HoH Competition and Nominations
Paul, Alex, Kevin, Josh and Raven compete in a trivia about events that may or may not have happened. It’s a true or false quiz and whoever has the most points after seven questions wins. Alex gets every question right.
Alex is the new HoH!
Uh-oh, this was NOT the plan. Now things are going to get wild. They go right into nominations with no time to talk.
Alex nominates Kevin and Raven.
Wow, Paul gets exactly what he wants because Alex doesn’t go after Josh and Christmas, even though they were also involved in Jason’s eviction. She truly is the dumbest HG.
The Power of Veto Competition
It’s the ball pit where the HGs must find lime and drop them into a tube. The first person to drop four limes in wins. A lot of people fail to get the limes when they drop them.
Alex gets two limes while Christmas, Raven and Josh have one. Then Alex gets her third. Christmas, Josh and Raven get second limes while Kevin and Paul get their first. Raven and Josh get their third limes. Josh gets his fourth lime.
Josh wins the Power of Veto!
Wow, that was close. It was a nice twist on the traditional ball pit competition.
Josh does NOT to use the Power of Veto.
That’s not a surprise since, if he did, Paul or Christmas would’ve been nominated (probably Christmas).
The Second Eviction
Kevin tells everyone to do what they have to do and have a good time. Raven is not ready for her summer to end.
Paul votes to evict…Raven
Christmas votes to evict…Raven
Josh votes to evict…Kevin
Raven is evicted 2-1!
Wow, Josh voted different from the others. I’m curious about that. Was he trying to save Raven or did he know how Paul was voting? Raven is in tears while Josh apologizes. Alex says it wasn’t her, but Raven doesn’t believe them. Josh is in tears, Alex is deep in thought and Kevin immediately takes his shirt off.
Raven understands because Kevin is useless and she’s a huge jury threat because of her disease. Julie Chen says she didn’t play the game, but Raven claims that she was great and everyone liked her.
At least Raven made history, becoming only the second woman ever to finish in the Top 6 without winning any competitions (season 13’s Shelly Moore was the other, also evicted in sixth place). And she played in a total of 19 HoH and PoV competitions without winning, second only to Dr. Will Kirby, who played in 21 on All-Stars and lost all of them.
Celebrity Big Brother
HOLY CRAP! Julie ends the show with a huge announcement. This Winter, a celebrity edition of Big Brother will air. Let’s hope they get Bobby Moynihan. Odds are it will be much shorter than a regular season, but that sounds so fun.
Big Brother 19 airs Sundays at 8/7c, Wednesdays at 8/7c and Thursdays at 9/8c on CBS.
