The game started out with quite a week to say the least. I don’t think anyone was surprised when Cody took the first HOH this season. He was out for blood from the beginning. The cool kids looked to sweep the week with Cody in the driver’s seat, but Cody had other plans. I called it pre-season; Cody was going to play too hard right from the get go. He definitely didn’t disappoint any of us. He’s also become on of the most disliked player to ever play Big Brother.
Cody kicked off the week by nominating Jillian and Megan, but in a strange turn of events Megan decided to leave the game. It was all over a comment that Jessica made by the pool to her alliance about Alex by the pool by calling her Pao Pao from season 16. Megan relayed the message back to Alex, but told her they called her a Panda. Megan let misunderstanding get the best her ending her own game. This forced Cody to replace her with Alex. After making three people an enemy, the POV was sure to be a nail biter.
The Power of Veto was hosted by my personal favorite, Kevin. I have to say he was the best “Merman” I have ever seen. The players consisted of Alex and Jillian, the nominees, Cody, the HOH, Raven, Matt, and Jason. They all dressed up on snorkel gear with hopes in stacking the most starfish before their water timer ran out. No surprise to anyone, there was a temptation during the competition up for grabs. Raven was able to snag the Never a Have Not pass for the entire summer.
The competition came down to the wire with the final three, Alex, Jillian, and Cody fighting it out until the end. Cody ultimately threw the competition by giving the win to Alex. This guy has no strategy. He had already made a bigger target out of himself by putting three nominees on the block, but no he had to replace them with another.
His solid alliance were all in agreement to go after anyone else available from “The Outsiders”, but Cody had other plans. He obviously did not consider the backlash he would get from putting one of his own on the block; he definitely didn’t consider Paul winning the Den of Temptation. At the veto meeting, Alex used her POV to remove herself from the block. It was then Cody’s time to “SHINE”. TV gold was about to unfold.
Cody nominated Paul for eviction and as we all knew, Paul played his “Pendant of Protection” and saved himself. A logical player would have cut his losses and put up an “Outsider”, but Cody is far from logical. He then proceeded to put up Christmas on the block. It was a total to shock to everyone in the house. It completely drew a line in the sand and put Cody and Jessica on one side of the house and the rest of the houseguests on the other.
Cody was so oblivious to how bad his move was for his showmance and himself; he continued to believe his former alliance would have his back. Everyone banded together to save Christmas and completely derail Cody’s plan. By a vote of 8-4, Jillian was evicted from the Big Brother house.
After a few words back and forth between Jessica and Christmas, the houseguest then went to the backyard to compete for HOH. I didn’t think it was possible for Cody to have a more sour face than normal, but during the HOH he proved me completely wrong. It was nice to know that he could show emotion though. Regret looked great on him. HAHA.
After a “Candy Crush” filled competition, Paul came away with the HOH. Cody handed over his HOH key to the Vet and the entire house celebrated Jessica’s loss. The clear agenda this week is to evict “JODY” from the house. I think we all hope that Cody gets what he has coming, an overdone dish of crow.
