This Big Brother 19 recap will include spoilers from the August 17 episode. It’s double eviction time for the BB 19 cast, and two houseguests will be evicted by the end of Thursday night. Those two houseguests will then get sequestered and sent to the BB 19 jury house (a mansion) where they will relax until it is time to vote for the $500,000 winner in September.
As the Thursday night episode plays out, this particular article will provide a play-by-play account of the BB 19 double eviction. The episode begins at 9 p.m. PT/ET on CBS, with a lot of fireworks in the forecast. The Big Brother Twitter account has been advertising the event for more than a week now, with the intent to spur interest from the fans and possibly help bump the BB 19 ratings for the night.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the three nominees for eviction on August 17 are Cody Nickson, Elena Davies, and Matt Clines. Matt won the Power of Veto and decided to save Jason Dent from the block this week, an interesting move when you stop to consider that he was putting himself at risk by remaining a nominee. It’s just one more odd game move by a member of the BB 19 cast that shows they are playing more as a team than individuals this summer.
The August 16 episode is already up on the CBS website so that fans can view it again before the double eviction episode. It showcases a lot of the drama that has been taking place between Alex Ow and Elena Davies after what happened in the Veto Competition. Alex was very upset that Elena had not only taken the $5,000 prize that she had in hand, but that Elena had stuck her with a punishment that is still playing out on the live feeds. It might even go down as the worst punishment a Big Brother cast member has ever endured.
Big Brother 19, Episode 24 is going to be an exciting one, as there is no way to predict how everything is going to play out. The only thing known for sure is that by the end of the night, two houseguests will be on their way to the BB 19 jury house. Could this be where some of the houseguests finally turn against Paul Abrahamian? Will someone new finally win the HOH and make some bold nominees? Make sure to check back here as the latest Big Brother 19 recap is rolled out live.
Updated 6:58 p.m. PT / 9:58 p.m. ET
Host Julie Chen opened the episode with some ominous statements about what was to come in the hour and then it was time for the “previously on Big Brother” segment. Footage was shown to keep viewers guessing about whether it would be Cody Nickson or Elena Davies becoming the first member of the BB 19 jury.
Before the “live” part of the double eviction episode could even get started, it was time to show what took place after the Veto Ceremony and during the past few days in the BB 19 house. It included several houseguests trying to put Mark Jansen on the spot regarding his early-season alliance with Cody Nickson. Elena Davies stepped in the middle of Josh Martinez putting Cody and Mark on the spot, but that then led to Alex Ow calling out Elena for lying during the Veto Competition and cursing the current HOH.
Roughly 10 minutes into the episode it was time to let the BB 19 cast know that this was a double eviction episode. Elena Davies, Cody Nickson, and Matt Clines each gave their speeches and it was time for the cast to make their first eviction of the night. Paul Abrahamian, Mark Jansen, Kevin Schlehuber, Josh Martinez, Raven Walton, Jason Dent, and Christmas Abbott voted unanimously to evict Cody Nickson from the Big Brother house.
In his second exit interview with Julie Chen, Cody was actually very personable, though he didn’t pull any punches when discussing the rest of the houseguests. He will now head to the BB 19 jury house and await the second evictee of the night. The remaining 10 houseguests would begin the next Head of Household Competition after the commercial break. This is where the primary Big Brother 19 spoilers for the evening would begin.
The HOH Competition was a head-to-head shuffle board battle. Josh Martinez beat Matt Clines in the first round, Mark Jansen beat Elena Davies in the second round, Christmas Abbott beat Josh Martinez in the third round, and Mark Jansen beat Raven Walton in the fourth round. Then Christmas beat Kevin Schlehuber, Jason Dent beat Mark, and Christmas beat Paul Abrahamian in successive rounds. That left Jason against Christmas for the Head of Household and it was Jason who won the power.
This August 17 Big Brother 19 recap continues with the “live” Nomination Ceremony where Jason Dent put Mark Jansen and Elena Davies on the block for eviction. It was then time to play the Veto Competition and find out who would hold the Power of Veto. The participants in the Veto Competition were Jason, Mark, Elena, Matt Clines, Raven Walton, and Josh Martinez. The challenge was a series of puzzles, with the first one done getting the Power of Veto. It was a close battle with Jason, but Mark Jansen won the POV.
At the Veto Ceremony, Mark used the Veto to save himself and Jason selected Matt as the replacement nominee. After the two nominees gave their speeches, it was time to hold the second eviction vote of the night. Raven Walton, Alex Ow, Josh Martinez, Paul Abrahamian, Christmas Abbott, and Kevin Schlehuber voted for Elena, while Mark Jansen voted for Matt. By a vote of 6-1, Elena Davies becomes the second member of the BB 19 jury.
That brings an end to the August 17 Big Brother 19 recap, as the second Head of Household Competition won’t get played until a bit later in the evening, with that footage likely saved for the Sunday night episode (August 20).
