With Alex (aka Paul’s #1 puppet) as HoH on Big Brother 19, it should go without saying that the plan is to backdoor Cody. So the Power of Veto is a crucial part to this plan. Did everything go smoothly and will Paul once again get exactly what he wants?

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 19 spoilers.

Mark won immunity and Matt is the third nominee.

Alex nominated Elena and Jason.

Mark and Paul were picked to play.

Matt won the Power of Veto!

It was a prize and punishment competition, and it seems Elena took $5,000 (from Alex) and Mark got a vacation. Meanwhile, Jason got the unitard and Alex has some type of camping punishment that involves making hot dogs. Paul will be shackled to Christmas for 48 hours.

Cody should be getting evicted, but there’s some drama. Obviously Matt can’t use the PoV on himself because then there is no replacement nominee, so he would have to save someone else (probably Jason). But there’s definitely a lot of animosity directed at Elena and Mark because they got the prizes, so there’s even some talk of evicting Elena instead of Cody this week. That will probably die down, but it’s interesting.

Will Matt ultimately decide to use the Powr of Veto to save himself or will he become the first nominee in history to use the PoV on someone else that he’s not related to (Evel Dick and his daughter Daniele both saved each other when they were both on the block and Brendon saved his fiancée Rachel in season 13)?
