‘Big Brother 19’ Spoilers: POV Ceremony Results – Mark Saved Himself, Raven Is ‘BB19’ Renom [Updated]

Big Brother 19 spoilers from the latest CBS live feeds activity reveal that the chance of a twist today at the Veto Ceremony died. The live feeds showed Elena was working hard, but wouldn’t cross certain lines, to try and get Mark to use his veto on her. As of last night, it was 50/50 on what he would do at the Veto Ceremony today. With the PoV Ceremony now complete, we know that Mark took himself off the block and Raven, as expected was renommed. In other news, a special Friday episode of BB19 has been set for August 18 at 8 p.m. according to Big Brother Access, but it will likely not be another battle back. Instead, it could be a clip show and the halfway party that Big Brother throws for houseguests each year.

Mark should be safe either way

Other Big Brother 19 spoilers reveal that HoH Josh is busy waffling between targeting Elena or Jessica this week, but we all know he doesn’t vote, so he only gets a say if it goes to a tie. The house also seems to be flip-flopping. Paul has been busy campaigning to send Jessica out before jury and keep Elena. Christmas was working on Josh to help him target Elena, but even she now seems to have conceded that Elena is not that big of a threat and Jessica is far more dangerous to keep in the game.

Although BB19 viewers know that Josh and Mark have a rocky relationship, should Mark not use the Power of Veto on himself, it’s not likely he’ll be voted out. Elena is playing Mark hard to use the PoV on her. While it’s clear to BB19 viewers that Elena is just not that into him, Mark is either oblivious or hoping persistence pays off for him. Elena promised Mark a date if he used the veto on her and he seems to be contemplating it. Now that he didn’t, the fate of that date seems doomed!

Late night seduction attempts failed

As late as 3 a.m. Big Brother time, Mark was groveling to get a kiss from Elena or for her to let him climb into her bed as she tried to go to sleep in the Have Not room. Mark is not a Have Not – Elena is the only HN this week, but he claimed he was sleeping in the HN room with her in a show of support. From Elena’s live feeds behavior, it seems she would prefer to be alone in the room so she could get some sleep and not be harassed by demands for affection.


To call Mark and Elena a showmance is to abuse the phrase. Elena has given Mark almost no attention, and they have not had sex. Compared to Matt and Raven (aka Maven) and Jessica and Cody (aka Jody), who are frolicking like bunnies as soon as the lights go off, Mark and Elena have zero romance happening. In fact, Elena’s clearly into Paul and can’t keep her hands off of him. BB19 fans often question on social media why Mark continues to persist when Elena rejects him on a daily basis.

Who will be the renom? Answer: Raven

As of the latest Big Brother 19 spoilers from the live feeds, it seemed that no matter whom Mark pulled off the block at today’s PoV ceremony, himself or Elena, it was likely that Raven would be the renom. Raven didn’t seem bothered by the notion and, after the live feeds had come back up after the PoV Ceremony, Raven was chatting with Josh and taking her renom in good spirits. As of last night, it did appear that Paul might get his way and the votes will go against Jessica no matter who else remains on the chopping block.

If Josh really wanted to make an epic Big Brother blindside move, he would have put his boy Paul up on the chopping block, but that didn’t happen, despite many fans expressing that hope on social media. Tune into BB19 Wednesday night at 8 p.m. to see the veto competition and ceremony play out and then on Thursday night at 9 p.m. to see the live eviction. And don’t forget to mark your calendars for a week from Friday, on August 18 at 8 p.m. for a special bonus Big Brother episode. Check back often for more Big Brother 19 spoilers and updates.
