Julie tells us four HGs remain, only three make it to finale night and one HGs will be sent packing tonight. Welcome to Big Brother!
Previously, on Big Brother, with only five HGs remaining everyone thought they were aligned with Paul. But Josh was having his doubts. After Josh got power, he contemplated a big move, but ultimately stayed true to his allies Paul and Christmas. After Weiner Woman, The Meatball, Potty mouth, and Merman clashed for the veto, the fa-la-la lunatic announced the heroic winner.
Alex felt confident in her alliance with Paul, but he instead gave her some heart breaking news.
At the veto meeting Paul followed through with his betrayal of Alex. At the live eviction, Paul threw Alex a sympathy vote but it was still game over for the gamer. With the HoH on the line Paul punched his ticket to the final three.
Tonight, the final four go to battle for most important veto of the summer. Things get Arkansassy in the jury house and another HGs dream of a half-million dollars will come to an end. All this live on Big Brother.
Tonight, after weeks of manipulating and blindsiding his housemates, Paul will make the final nominations of the season. Then, they battle it out for the final power of veto and the winner will have the opportunity to change the final nominations live and in the process will determine who will cast the sole vote to evict. So who will be headed to jury and who will join Paul in the final three? We'll find out tonight live. #Butfirst, one last nomination ceremony and one last HG being played.
We see the nomination ceremony where Paul is nominating two HGs for eviction. His first nominee is Josh. The next HG he has nominated is Kevin. He has nominated Josh and Kevin. He says the choices for nomination were pretty slim. The importance lies in the veto competition, and with that he wishes them all the best of luck. Kevin says thank you.
Paul says this HoH isn't so much about the nominations, it's really more so about the veto. Kevin is definitely his target this week. If Josh, Christmas, or him wins, Kevin is going home. He can't really blame Paul for that because whoever votes him out, it isn't going to be him.
Josh tells us the goal is simple, to win veto and take himself off the block and send Kevin to jury and from there, it's anybody's game. Kevin tells us this is his fourth straight time on the block in seven days. He feels like one of the new kids, but that's him and Paul are like this and he crosses his finger. They had a bond from day one and he gave Paul his word and Paul gave Kevin his word and he wants to take himself off the block so he hopes he wins veto.
Paul and Josh are playing chess and Christmas is watching and Paul tells Josh he put him up so he wouldn't have to make the decision. Christmas tells us this is the most important veto of the game. If Kevin wins and take himself off the block, then she's the only option to go up and Kevin gets to make the decision on who goes home, Christmas or Josh. This could absolutely ruin everything they worked so hard for.
Up next, we visit the jury house, Matt and Jason join the jury and Jason learns the truth about his blind side. Plus, the final veto is up for grabs and the winner decides who will cast the sole vote to evict.
As the jury grows, things get tense as true feelings about each other and the game are revealed.
Mark says it's one big happy family in the jury house. Cody enjoys his alone time and him and Elena get to spend time together.
We see a car pull up and Matt gets out as Elena and Mark are discussing who will be next. Matt walks in and Cody gives us the stare and says he just thinks Matt is a piece of bleep.
Matt tells us his eviction didn't come as a surprise to him. They watch the video of the HoH. Elena asks if he tried to campaign and Matt said he didn't say a word. Mark asks Matt what was the actual agenda and Matt says backdoor Kevin. Mark asks why would you backdoor Kevin? He hasn't won anything. Mark asks who Matt thinks is running the house. Matt says from a social standpoint and strategic standpoint Paul is absolutely running house, but from a competitive standpoint, Jason and Alex are running things.
Mark asks Cody if he wants to contribute and Cody says he doesn't want to get involved in it. Matt says you're on the show guy and Cody says they're just trying to start something and he leaves. [Not sure if Cody meant BB or the other jurors.]
Elena asks Matt who he thinks is joining them and he thinks Jason will be joining them. We see Jason get out of the car as Mark is saying he doesn't want to see Jason or Alex in the house because they are competing. Jason comes in and Mark says cowboy and gives him a hug. Jason says this is going to be brutal to watch.
Jason says they clearly planned it and he thinks Paul was the ring leader. Mark says Christmas wins this? Mark rolls his eyes and Cody gives the stare. Jason says Kevin was supposed to be on the block.
Elena says so you're still thinking there's a chance Kevin is going to be backdoored even though Christmas was very direct about her nomination speech to him? Cody is just staring at nothing.
Jason says he thought that she was trying to keep Kevin in the dark. We see the veto ceremony. Elena says so eviction night, you think votes are stacked. Jason says he thought the vote would be 4-0. Elena says to send Kevin out? Jason says yeah. Jason says yeah, play dumb Alex. Jason says he thought he could trust Alex, she knew it was coming and now he doesn't want her to win. Jason says nothing goes on in that house that those two don't know about. Jason exits to the studio and Cody remarks he liked Jason's exit and smiles. Jason says he should have walked across the damned table.
Julie tells up next Jason learns the truth when Raven and Alex join the jury. Then the most powerful veto of the summer is up for grabs. Who will join Paul in the Final Three?
Elena asks Jason who he thinks the next HGs joining them will be. Jason says Alex and Paul will be competing pretty hard so Kevin or Raven has a good chance of walking through the door. Matt tells us he does not want to see Raven or Paul.
Raven comes in. Raven tells us going out second in the double eviction wasn't fun. She was more hurt because she thought Christmas and Josh had her back and wanted to be final four, but she guesses not.
They watch the video. Raven says she really wanted to win HoH because she knew she was going on the block. They see the clip of the HoH and Alex saying that's for you Jason and he looks dumbfounded. Mark says she didn't know. Jason asks Raven who voted him out, did Paul and Alex know about it. Raven says Alex had no idea and she was blindsided, but everyone but Kevin knew and Alex was loyal to Jason from the get-go. Raven says she was so upset when Jason left and he didn't give her a hug. He feels ridiculous now thinking she had anything to do with it. He was honestly just sure she would have had to be in on it because she's so smart at the game.
Jason tells us he got a big lump in his throat because he was pretty hard on Alex when he got evicted. Elena asks if Alex ever found out about the plan and Raven says she has no idea.
They watch the clip of Alex making her nominations and Jason yells put Paul up. Raven says she wants Paul to go to the end and Cody looks dumbfounded and has a smile on his face. Jason asks why she wants Paul to go to the end and Raven says she's been working with Paul the entire time.
Elena says everyone has been working with Paul the entire time. Raven says her, Matt, and Paul had an alliance and Mark says we had the same alliance. Raven says we knew about all the alliances, but the one Paul cared about was me and Matt.
Jason asks then why are you two sitting her then? Raven says they said Alex was a puppet master, but they figured it was Raven and Paul. Jason's eyes are huge and Elena laughs. Raven says maybe not Paul, but I was pulling some strings and knew what was going on. Elena laughs some more and says this is hilarious.
Elena asks Jason who he thinks will join them next and Jason says hopefully not Alex. He tells us he's still confused about the whole thing. On one hand if he doesn't see her then she's still in the game and if she does come to the house then he'll know she had nothing to do with his blindside. Elena says Alex was the last HoH and she can't compete and if Paul is being true to Paul she's sure he'll make a shot at the last alliance member.
Alex comes in in her super-hero costume. They watch the video. Raven asks why she's wearing the costume and Alex says they missed out on BB comics week. Alex says they wanted Josh to win to take that shot. Mark says he is going to get second place. Mark says there wasn't a puppet master? Alex he literally told Paul he was her one shot at the game and he didn't care. He pulled her into a room and said if he brings her to the Final Two then he'll lose. Alex apologizes to Jason and he says it's not her fault. Jason tells us he found out Alex wasn't a part of his blindside.
Jason tells Alex he can't vote for that idiot and she says it's the game. Raven agrees. Jason tells Alex just so you know these two (Raven and Matt) claim to be the puppet masters. Alex says it seems they've been having fun without her. Jason says we'd be having fun if it wasn't for those two.
Raven wants to know what they did to Jason in the game. Jason laughs. Raven says we were in our little world and Jason agrees and Raven says ignoring your ass. So what did we do to you in the game? Mark says he's never heard someone say they were a puppet master and won nothing. Raven asks what Mark won besides throwing condiments on Josh. Mark says two vetoes and two safeties. Raven says he's here because all he wanted to do was fight in the house. Mark says all her and Matt did was play house. Raven says she played a great social game. Jason is laughing and Raven says why are you such a bleep, that's probably your middle name. Mark says Raven contributed nothing to the game and she says she helped Paul pull strings and Mark says everybody did. Cody says I didn't. Everyone laughs.
Up next, it's the final most crucial veto competition of the summer.
It's time to find out who will win the final veto. Hello HG, my name is Artie, the artificial intelligence that runs the Big Brother time machines. Statistically speaking, you only had a 23.5% chance of being here today. Congratulations. This competition will be played over several rounds.
In each round, I will give you an event that occurred in the Big Brother house. Utilizing the two time dials, it is your job to figure out what day the event happened. Rotate the silver dial to make the digits change by 10 days and the gold dial to make digits change by 1 day. Once you think you have the day, hit your launch button to see if you're correct. If you are incorrect, you must try again. The last player to answer incorrectly in each round will have power drained from their time machine. Finish last in three rounds, you will lose all of your power making your time machine inoperable eliminating you from the competition. The last player remaining in the game will earn the golden power of veto. So who is ready to play Back to the Veto.
Josh tells us Kevin cannot win this veto because if he does it basically seals his or Christmas's fate in the game and they are screwed. He hasn't played all season and it's about damned time they ship him to jury. Paul says he's already HoH so he's secure in the final three, but if he wins this veto he can keep nominations the same which would force Christmas to be the deciding vote to send Kevin out of the game and he doesn't have to get any blood on his hands. Kevin says Josh is a good kid, he played a different style of game and he thinks it's time for him to go. Christmas says this week is all about the veto and if Kevin wins then she goes up and her or Josh go home. There is no way they are going to let Kevin take this.
It is time for the first time jump.
Round 1: On what day did Jason receive his eX-tremitard.
Josh says he can't forget his man Jason being in the eXtremitard on day 53. Josh and Paul lock in quickly. Christmas struggles and is last and loses power. Two more miscalculations and she is out of the competition.
Round 2: On what day did Cameron appear on the memory wall in Inked and Evicted.
Kevin buzzes in wrong and he doesn't' remember Cameron being on the wall. Josh is first and is correct with Paul right behind. Christmas finally gets to day 36 and Kevin loses power. Two more miscalculations and he will be eliminated. Paul says boom! Kevin loses a round and Christmas is back in the game. They can't afford for Kevin to win this veto.
Round 3: On what day was the halting hex used?
Christmas is first, then Paul, then Josh. Kevin is last and he tells us he's in big trouble. He wants to win the veto but he trusts Paul, he's his partner, they'll see what happens. One more miscalculation and Kevin is out of the competition. Josh says come on Kevin one more screw-up and you are out of the game.
Round 4: On what day did Raven win a Never-Not pass.
Kevin remembers being the merman. Kevin is last and is out of the competition. Kevin tells us he doesn't want Josh to win the veto because he'll take himself off, he needs Paul to win. Josh tells us Kevin is out of the competition. Deuces buddy, you played yourself. Now all he has to do is win the veto and secure his spot in top 3.
Paul says Kevin is out but he still has work to do. He needs to secure the veto to keep nominations the same.
Round 5: On what day did Mark win his first veto?
Josh is first and then Paul. Christmas finished last and she lost power for a second time. One more miscalculation and she'll be out.
Round 6: On what day did they watch The Revengers trailer?
Paul thought he knew it because it was veto competition and he gets it wrong twice. Josh rings in first and Paul gets it second. Christmas is now eliminated from the game.
Josh and Paul are left and Kevin says Josh winning is the worst case scenario.
Round 7: On what day did they get zinged by Zingbot?
Paul is first and Josh loses power. Paul says he needs to push through and finish the rest of the game.
Round 8: On what day did Jillian appear as The Timeshare Tyrant in BB Comics?
Paul is first and Josh loses a second time. One more miscalculation and he'll be out. Josh tells us this sucks, he trusts his allies but when you're on the block you win the veto and get yourself off the block.
Round 9: On what day was the first unanimous eviction?
Paul just barely beats Josh. Paul has won the final veto of the summer. He controls the whole week and he gets to pave the path to the end of the game and hopefully straight to the final two children.
Kevin feels comfortable staying on the block even if Paul leaves the nominations the same.
We see Paul and Kevin talking and he's asking Paul if everything is OK, if it's still them in the Final Three with her. Paul says yeah.
Paul tells us he's telling Kevin what he wants to hear so he can lock up the jury vote.
Kevin tells him if he goes and it's Paul and Christmas in the Final Two, then he will vote for Christmas.
Paul tells us he's the veto holder this week and he has to think of all his options because he lost by one jury vote and he does not want to make the same mistake twice.
Kevin tells Paul once he gets Christmas he's going to win easily. The live veto meeting and eviction is next.
It's time for them to tell Paul why he should use veto.
Josh is first and says, Congratulations. He stayed true to his morals and his word and his loyalty, he'd like Paul to use but if not he respects that.
Kevin says he knows it's a burden and he'll respect the decision he makes on whether to use the veto or not and he's had a great time with them.
Julie tells Paul he can use the veto or not and he can stand and give the decision. Paul says they've all had to face extremely difficult decisions this season and he chooses not to use the power of veto.
Julie says the nominations are the same and finale night is less than a week away.
Julie gives them each a final chance to address Christmas before she casts the sole vote to evict.
Josh is first and he gives all glory to God for this blessing. He thanks his family and CBS. He says he's been a man of his word, he's played his heart out, and had to make big moves he hopes she respects his game play.
Kevin says he's been on the block so much he feels like one of the New Kids. He says he's had a great time he'll respect her decision whatever it is and he tells them to listen to Tim McGraw's Humble and Kind when they get out.
Julie reminds them the evicted HGs only has a moment to say their goodbyes and leave.
Julie tells Christmas it's time for her to cast her vote and to stand and face the nominees.
Christmas: This is a difficult decision because I've been close to both of them. Kevin is her house husband and Josh is her meatball. She says this isn't a personal, this is a game decision they both had different strategies and they aren't comparable. She has to think what the game is and it's a combination of social, competition, and strategy and she thinks the top three should have shared the burden of having to send someone home. She evicts Kevin.
Kevin hugs and kisses them all and tells them all good luck and have a good time and enjoy themselves. He says no animosity.
Kevin gets a huge round of applause. Julie says he's the sharpest dresser they've ever had. She says he came into the game only to get evicted on the final episode before finale. She asks if he's surprised and he says no.
Kevin says you have to win a few competitions and he won nothing. Julie asks who he was most loyal to in the game. Kevin says Paul. Julie says Paul was your guy and Kevin says yes. Julie says are you surprised Paul didn't use the veto and Kevin says no he understands Paul was trying to do the best for his game. He says he gets along with most of the HGs and he didn't think Paul wanted go to Final Two with him.
Julie shows the goodbye messages. Paul says if he's seeing this then he was right and Christmas went rogue. He says he has to fight this one out on his own. He can't to wait to walk the Mission Hills streets with him and find out how to become a true badass.
Christmas thanks him for all his efforts and making it more cozy and comfortable. She hopes he understands why what happened happened.
Josh says Kevin, he's been aligned with Christmas and Paul and their goal was to get to final three. He's so sorry, Kevin was the last target and after all the madness in the house just tell his family he's still coming over for Thanksgiving and they better save him a plate.
Julie asks what he thinks of what he just heard. Kevin says it's fine, it's how the game's played and they were always together and talking and he knew something was going on. He wasn't going to come out and cause a scene, well he did once.
