Big Brother 19: Week 6 recap

BBbanner-sm

Name calling. Deception. I’m pretty much over Paul and this season. It’s been an extremely crazy week as the king of the meatballs is ruling over the house and America’s sweethearts are up on the block. Welcome to another Big Brother 19 recap.

So the week kicked off with Josh winning Head of Household with Christmas, who will now be referred to as other holidays, and Cody coming in second place. This lead to Labor Day happily proclaiming that she is the “Second Place queen.” This statement is what is wrong with this season. Everyone is letting Paul control them and are pretty much playing for the $50,000 instead of the $500,000. But I’ll get to that later.

Me hearing that Josh wasn’t targeting who Paul wanted

Shit hits the fan as Alex tries to throw Mark and Elena under the bus to Paul and his Minions right in front of Mark. They had a long talk before “fixing things” with Mark. Elena and Josh have a talk that results in Josh wanting to evict Elena and not Jessica/Cody. It was like the Big Brother gods opened up and gave us a gift. This is the start of the cracks in Paul’s game. Josh would throw up this plan to Paul and his minions. Paul kept trying to make Jessica the target and you know everyone else agreed because it’s Paul and they are all pretty much sucking his Big Brother dick and getting more blood on their hands for someone who probably won’t do the same for them. After Paul and the rest leave, Arbor Day reminds Josh that it’s his HOH. As much as Arbor Day isn’t my favorite, I’m living for the cracks in the minions.

It’s from here it’s when Jessica pretty much threw away her game. Literally, she threw the Temptation comp and then didn’t really campaign for herself after she lost the veto competition. Sure, she was more likely go home but she still had a chance to stay. She was up against both Elena and Raven, who isn’t very well liked in the house, to begin with. She stood a chance before she decided to get into multiple fights with Josh. While I’m not supporting the name calling that she and Cody called Josh, which pretty much sealed her fate, Jessica went out with a bang.

 

Elena stating the obvious

 

I was extremely sad to see Jessica leave the house because she was the best part of an entirely predictable cast of idiots. Her speech was iconic for the season. She pretty much called them all idiots. If I was Jessica, I would be very proud of everything that she accomplished in the house. She lasted more weeks than anyone ever thought she would and she did it in a house full of sheep. Now that they made it to Jury, hopefully, we start seeing more moves. If Paul doesn’t go home next week during the Double Eviction then these people are idiots like Jessica said. If they want to prove her wrong, then they need to get him out.

Here’s to hoping that it’s not the Paul show anymore! I have a hunch that it still will be. sigh.

Big Brother 19: Week 5 recap

BBbanner-sm

Drama. Betrayal. Fucking assholes. It’s time for another recap of the game we all love and are addicted to. Welcome to probably one of the most hectic weeks in the history of the show…and Julie Chen stole that line from me. It's so hectic that I'm skipping over week 4.

This week was soo good. Here's the breakdown of week 4:

  • Jessica won HOH and POV
  • She nominated with Josh and Ramses; Josh was the target
  • Paul flipped the house on her and Ramses was evicted.

With the anointing of Paul as Head of Household, Jessica decided to slay the world by telling the world that she has the temptation and that is where it hit the fan. Pretty much this week was a shit show of how these houseguests are literally letting Paul win this season. Like, they have no backbone.

These houseguests are literally letting him control their actions. Paul pretty much sent them to attack both Cody and Jessica to the point of harassment and bullying. There were only two of them that thought it wasn't the right thing to do: Matt and Mark. Out of those two, Matt was the only one to say something. That right there is what's wrong with society today. People would rather fly under the radar and just let stuff like that happened. If more people would stand up to that, then they wouldn't stand out.

Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of things that Cody and Jessica have done in the house that aren't great but they didn't deserve this. Ever wonder why they are secluded from the rest of the house? Maybe it could be the fact that they were all screaming at them and just being trashy human beings.

During the harassment of two houseguests, I was glad to see that Raven's disease doesn't stop her from talking trash as well as looking like it. Pretty much, the entire houseguest got into a screaming match with Jessica and Jessica left the entire thing looking like a badass. I'm also tired of Josh crashing pots and pans. Oh, if you want a good laugh, I highly recommend search #RavenExposedParty because the internet is on to her game.

What started this? The fucking veto ceremony where Paul didn't remove Jessica in order to prove to her she's safe. He removes Jason, who was only the third nominee because he lost the temptation competition. Paul was felt like Jessica and Cody shitted on the game and him by not doing a traditional veto speech. Don't worry, Jason's speech where he pretty much shitted on Cody was acceptable. This house is just one big hypocritical fest.

Jessica used to the Halting Hex and stopped the eviction that saved her and Cody from eviction. Paul looked pissed off because his second HoH was a waste. Then magically at the end of the spell, they are all kissing Jessica's ass about how cool that was, which it was just disgusting. Literally four days early, they were harassing them to the point where they were going to self-evict. Fuck you guys is what I would have said more than likely.

At this point in the game, Paul is playing the best game but. He has the house under his control and is using them to do his bidding. He just looks like a horrible human being while doing it. He's on his way to winning because no one besides Jessica and Cody is going to nominate him. Once they get out Cody and Jessica, it going to be a super boring season. Here's how I could get him out: Nominate Alex and Kevin. Have the POV used to save Alex and then put Paul up against Paul. No one will vote out Kevin. There you go. Oh, and you do it on a Double Eviction night. This pretty much me to the majority of the house this season:

There was other things that happened but they weren't as important. I'm just over this season from a faith in humanity standpoint. Here is some thing to ponder for next time: When will Christmas use her temptation?

Top 5ive: Big Brother seasons you need to watch

BBbanner-sm

While we are the midst a summer of temptations with Big Brother 19, there's a lot of down time if you are following the live feeds. So I say, don't use that opportunity let your family know you're still alive and grace them with your presences. Re-watch past Big Brother seasons!

Re-watching past seasons is such an easy thing to do, especially if you have CBS All Access (I'm going to assume you do if you are watching the Live feeds). It lets you see how the game evolved and also helps you keep up on all of the references. Here's a list of seasons that I recommend watching if you don't want to go season by season.

5. Big Brother 2

bb2usa-group

It's the first season with the format that we know and love. The first season followed the international version of the game, which is actually rather boring to point. While I do recommend watching the first couple of episodes of the first season just to see what it was, Big Brother 2 is just too good. It gave us Dr. Will Kirby, who would go on to become one of the best players in the history of the game, as well as ChillTown, one of the greatest alliances in Big Brother North American history. It's a really great to see how far we came since then.

4. Big Brother 10

BIG BROTHER 10

After the disaster that was Big Brother 9, Big Brother 10 was a back to basic season that returned to strangers entering the house and having little to minimal twist. This season was all up the houseguest being entertaining and boy, they were. You know you are going to have a great season when you hear an 71-year-old man compare a 24-year-old man to Judas, which is still an iconic line that will live on. This season introduced use to Big Brother Legends Dan Gheesling, who won this season, and Jesse Godderz, who we've seen more time during the last couple of season of Big Brother than anyone would want to see. Anyways, this season is just a great season from a cast perspective.

3. Big Brother 8

Big_Brother_8_Cast

This season is only notable for the winner and the runner-up: Evel Dick and Daniele Donato. They started the game not knowing they would end up playing together and having big targets on their back, to literally making it to the end. The father and daughter  team was estranged before entering the house and the game brought them together. Evel Dick was literally the most entertaining person in the house that season. He terrorized the houseguest and then Daniele would go smooth things over with them. At one point, Dick and Daniele was on the block. Dick won the veto and used on Daniele and got the alliance to turn on the their pawn. I miss those days.sigh.

2. Big Brother 7 aka Big Brother All-Stars

big-brother-all-stars-092315

It was the best of the best competing from the first six seasons of the show. It was great and amazing. It will probably be the only all-star season we get but it will go down infamy. It gave many of our favorite players to come back into the game and try their hand at it again. It was great season with a lot of strategy and backstabbing. It also was the first to feature Big Brother Slop. Before this, they would force the houseguest to eat Peanut Butter and Jelly.

1. Big Brother 6

big-brother6-6

The single best season in the history of Big Brother USA. Hands down. It was the most entertaining and chaotic. It has the longest competition in North American Big Brother history. It also spawned iconic lines and moments as well as legends. It was kind of reboot of the game as it was a brand new house. It also gave us the iconic theme song that we hear every week, or everyday on the live feeds. Big Brother 6 was a house divided with bitter tensions and fierce competition that  made for good television and live feeds. I cannot tell you how good this season was.

Honorable Mention: Big Brother: Over the Top

big-brother-top

The first internet season of Big Brother in the world, it's something you just need to check out. It's only 10 episodes long and features a lot of drama, twists, and Julie Chen saying Shit. Just hearing Julie Chen say shit is reason enough to watch the season. While It was way more entertaining live, mainly because you literally saw everything, it's still a great season that kept everything interesting and divided people just as much as the presidential election that happened at the same time.

Honorable Mention: Big Brother 14

bb14-group-pool-hdr

This season is only on this list because for two reasons: Dan Gheesling and Wil Heuser. Wil didn't make it far on the show but he has been giving amazing parodies of the every Big Brother USA season since which have been way better than the actual season. During his time on the show, his Diary Room sessions were hilarious and he was just an entertaining houseguest. You need to also watch for Dan Gheesling and the amazing game he played. He already won the game but then re-entered to coach a team of new houseguest. It wasn't until a few weeks into the game that we re-entered the game as a houseguest. He played a flawless game and really should have won the game for a second time. The only reason he didn't win was for the fact that the jury was bitter because he literally screwed them all out of the house.

Honorable Mention: Big Brother Canada

BBC-logo

Our neighbors to the north have their own version of Big Brother and it's literally better than the last few years of Big Brother USA. It's the same format that we know and love but done it way that makes it fresh and just better. There's plenty of ways you can watch past seasons if you don't live in Canada online. If you are going to watch Big Brother Canada, then I recommend all of them with Big Brother 5 as the strongest and best so far. All of them a good (Big Brother 3 is a clusterfuck) with a lot of iconic moments. If you thought that Big Brother USA was petty, Big Brother Canada is the pettiest of them all.

Big Brother Battle Back Showdown rocks the house

BBbanner-battleback-sm.jpg

It’s time for the now annual Battle Back competition. It’s the time were evicted houseguest competes in order to re-enter the game and continue their dreams toward the grand prize. And this time, the Battle Back was literally everything.

Now I won’t do a play-by-play of it because frankly, that is pointless. This Battle Back was more thought out and do extremely well. I applaud them for making something that was literally just ehh the first time they did it and just making what it was. It also could be the fact that this cast is probably the best cast they have had in years as a whole. This so far is the best season that the United States has put on in years. Probably since Big Brother 14 or Big Brother 10.

So they did a playoff format for this year’s Battle Back. The first four evicted competed with the winner and the one that came in second moving onto the next round. Then those two competed with the winner going on to face an existing houseguest to see if they could re-enter the game. If the evicted houseguest won, then they were back in the house. But if the existing houseguest won, then the evicted houseguest would go home.

Here’s the breakdown of what happened because I’m not Julie Chen and obviously not good at explaining rules, as you can see from above:

  • Cameron and Cody beat Dominique and Jillian
  • Cody beat Cameron
  • Paul was voted by the house 11-1 to face Cody.
  • Cody beat Paul

Pretty much Mark during all of this.

Personally, I’m excited Cody to re-enter the game because that means there will be more interesting television and feed. When the houseguests found out about the Battle Back Showdown, all of them were dreading the return on Cody. Mark looked like someone kicked his puppy when he thought about the return of Cody and Dominique. Jessica thought was ecstatic to see her boyfriend return. It also helped the fact that she could prevent them from evicted him/her. Like, we all saw this coming from miles away. This is why you don’t burn bridges with the evicted houseguests unless they walked from the game or you just flat-out can’t stand them. I thought of this as soon as Megan walked away from the game and they didn’t let Cameron re-enter the game right away.

 

Speaking of Cameron, he is probably kicking himself in the face when he re-watches the episodes and realizes how much he got screwed in the first episode and how close he was to vengeance before letting it all slip away. He was literally beating Cody for most of the competition until Cody realized what worked and won the comp. I hope Big Brother does a second chance season and Cameron is one of the “returning” houseguests so he can get a fair shake at the game.

 

Paul is running the game right now. 

The fact that the whole house picked Paul proves how much of a dangerous player in the game he is. I hope they go more into their reasoning for it because it just looks like everyone is his bitch and he’s a “puppet master.” He’s in a perfect position right now to win the game if they don’t get him out. Cody and Paul are going to be gunning for each other. The one left standing will have a very high chance of making it to the end. If it’s down to Cody/Paul and Kevin, then I see Kevin being the one to win it all. Hopefully, by then, Kevin doesn’t just float on by not knowing what is going on with his “mojos” and “HOV.” I honestly believe that he’s actually faking all of that. He’s a mastermind. Kevin and Paul are the big threats in the game. I say screw Cody and Jessica and focus on getting them out before it’s too late.

 

Now that week 3 is in the books. I cannot wait to see what happens next week with the return of Cody and what curse has been placed on the house when Jess accepted the temptation.
