Thursday night was a live eviction episode of Big Brother 19. Read on for spoilers to see where the Houseguests stand for the week.
Last night was a live eviction episode of Big Brother 19. By the end of the evening, Jason and Raven were evicted from the Big Brother house. After the eviction, Josh won HoH. The nomination ceremony will be shown on Sunday’s episode, but Josh has nominated Alex and Kevin for eviction. But before I get to my predictions of the upcoming week, let me discuss the events of the previous week that led to Jason’s and Raven’s evictions.
JASON: After Jason was part of the plan to split up Matt and Raven last week, he should’ve known better. Matt and Raven were told that Kevin was the target last week, but they found out the real plan after Jason did not use the Power of Veto. This past week, Jason was told Kevin was the target, yet he was blindsided last night when he was evicted from the Big Brother house instead of Kevin. Jason should’ve realized the same lie could be said to him, yet he trusted “the house” more than he should. Jason won multiple competitions this summer, so he shouldn’t have been surprised people would want to evict him. However, he trusted Paul way too much, which has been the same mistake several Houseguests have made this season.
RAVEN: Raven has been a complete non-entity in the house, and no one saw her as a threat. When Alex won the HoH during the double eviction, Kevin was her target. However, Paul and Christmas decided to evict Raven instead due to Kevin performing worse in challenges. Raven never had a chance at winning this game as she just attached herself to Matt and Paul all summer long and made no contributions to the game play this season.
There are only five people left in the game, therefore the Houseguests should be thinking individually instead of what is best for a team. However, only Paul is thinking for himself as Christmas and Josh are on board with getting to the Final 3 with Paul. As well, Alex and Kevin have a lot of trust in Paul too. The only person who has considered taking a shot at Paul before Final 3 is Josh, but it’s unlikely he will follow through with targeting Paul.
Now onto the Power Rankings. Here are where the Houseguests stand in the house this upcoming week with
Paul Josh as the Head of Household.
WEEK 11 POWER RANKINGS
1. JOSH – Josh is the Head of Household, and his target is Alex. He is most loyal to Christmas, but he has been catching on to Paul’s game. At the moment, Josh is the only person in the house that would consider taking a shot at Paul, but it’s not a move he is eager to make this week. He will probably wait until Final 3 if he wins the Final HoH, but he should take the shot now. It would be a game-changing move that could help him win the game if he makes it to the Final 2.
2. CHRISTMAS – Josh is the most loyal to Christmas, so she is safe this week. However, Christmas has foolishly offered to go up as a pawn if the Veto gets used this week. She should still have the votes to stay as Kevin or Alex getting evicted this week is more likely to happen. Christmas chances at winning this game are uncertain. On one hand, Christmas hasn’t done much in the game and the two HoH competitions she won were practically given to her. However, Jason has stated in exit interviews he has no plans to vote for Paul to win the game, and he is rooting for Christmas to win.
3. PAUL – Paul has had control of the game for nearly every eviction this summer. He has had a foolishly loyal group of minions obeying his every command, and it seems like they will continue to throw their games away and allow Paul to claim the $500,000 for himself. However, there is a slim chance Paul could get evicted this week. Josh has talked to the cameras alone and admitted that Paul is the biggest threat to win the game. If Alex were to win the Power of Veto this week, this may be the only time Paul can get evicted before the finale.
4. KEVIN – If Alex wins the Power of Veto this week, Kevin is the backup target. Josh, Christmas, and Paul agreed to vote out Kevin if Alex manages to pull herself off the block. However, Kevin is not a competition threat at all, and it would be wiser to keep him in the house. However, even if Alex does win the Veto, it would be very tough for Josh to convince Christmas and Alex to vote out Paul if Josh does take that shot. So we’re more likely going to see either Alex or Kevin evicted this week.
5. ALEX – If Alex does not win the Power of Veto, she will be evicted from the Big Brother house. She’s the clear target and has no more allies on her side. She lost her closest ally Jason last night, and Paul has no interest in working with her anymore and wants her out. Alex is still trusting Paul though due to some foolish belief that Paul would never turn his back on “friendship.” When she is evicted, she will regret blindly following Paul’s command instead of playing her own game.
So those are my thoughts on the house dynamics this week. Thanks for reading and feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
