Tuesday Talk-Big Brother

 Hey Everyone!

Today is one of my favorite days of the month in the blogging world.  It's the day where we chit chat about anything and everything.  Fancy Ashley and I invite you to join us the third Tuesday of every month to TALK on a TUESDAY!  ;)

This is what I want to talk about...
 You guys!  I LOVE this show.  #pleasetellmeimnotalone

I don't know what it is but I become completely giddy about Big Brother every single summer.  I love the competitions.  I love that it's a reality show.  I love that it comes on three nights a week.  The list goes on...

I know lots of you are BB fans as well, so I want us to talk about a few things.

First up, what are you thinking about the Den of Temptation?  Do you like that twist or not really?  Clearly, I'm thinking like most of America because last week I was FRANTICALLY voting for Christmas to win the temptation.  haha! #anditworked

I happened to think the Ve-Toad costume on Cody in particular was hilarious.  He doesn't seem like the type who's into jokes so it made it extra funny.  Right?

Let's also chat...
Christmas
*I was confused about why she cursed Jason?  Because he dropped her and she broke her foot?  Because they're on different "sides" of the house?  What do you think?
*Why did she NOT vote to send Cody out of the house?  Why would she believe his story?
*I really like her as a player, but do you think it's fair she got to leave and come back?  I know she was hurt but what are your thoughts?  (I'm asking because I think I remember years ago on Survivor if you had to leave for medical attention-you were out?)

Dominique
*Who was she trying to throw under the bus on Sunday night with Alex?  Elena?  I was confused by that.
*I LOVED her talk show last week.   SO fun to watch!

I heart Julie Chen.  :)

Jessica
*You're either for her or against her.  Am I right?  I would have had SO much respect for her if she'd ditched Cody and sided with the house when he put up Christmas.  But since she didn't, I'm not a fan.  What side are you on?

Alex
*I'm a big Alex fan.  I liked that she teamed up with Paul and she seems to be playing a smart game.

Kevin
He CRACKS me up!  I wasn't sure what to think of him when the show first began, but I'm Team Kevin all the way!

Paul
I know he's had his chance and with veteran status he definitely has an advantage, but I like Paul.  He's REALLY good at this game!

If I had to choose a winner right now at the moment...I'd want it to be Kevin, but I think it might be Alex. (I like her too, but Kevin is my fave at the moment.)

Those are my Big Brother thoughts so far now I wanna hear from YOU!  Big Brother fans...who are your favorites?  Are you for Jessica or against her?  Who would you predict as the Season 19 winner?  I want to hear what you're thinking about the season so far.  And please tell me you get as excited as I do three nights a week.  ;)

Have a great day!  And happy Big Brother watching tomorrow night!  XO

This post just makes me laugh! That's all...I'm just over here laughing! I clearly am missing the boat on Big Brother!!!

Lisa L said...

Team Alex or Kevin all the way! They are both fun to watch-and Alex is a beast. I just hope Cody doesn't battle his way back into the house.

Sheaffer {Pinterest Told Me To} said...

I'm going to have to send Chris your post for today. I just kinda watch when I'm doing other stuff, but he's ALL IN like you!!!!! He'll love this!

Bailey Bryant said...

I hate to say it, but I didn't think it was "fair" for Christmas to leave and come back. Like survivor, I think the rule should be if you have to leave, you're out. But I do like her! Not a fan of Cody and I'm 90% sure he'll be back in the house after Friday night. LOVE Alex & Kevin...I'm pulling for Alex at the moment. I think she's really smart and definitely has the ability of going far. Paul will always be a fave-he just adds so much. I lost respect for Jessica when she teamed up with Cody; play the game for yourself!!!
Overall, I kind of feel like the majority of these peeps are coat tailers; Paul has kind of had it pretty easy because there are so many that are putty in his hands!

Sammi_Miami said...

I LOVE Big Brother! When I saw your post title, I smiled so big! I've been watching since Season 8, and have seen every single season! I am really hoping either Kevin or Alex wins, too! Fridays episode should be CRAZY -- I bet Cody gets back into the game!!!

Narci Dreffs said...

Well, you know I am a big fan! I love Kevin and am NOT a fan of Jessica's! Also, Paul is SO GOOD at this game!! The Den of Temptation is super creepy, but I love all of the twists that it brings on the house! So fun!

farmlifefairytale said...

I am a Big Brother fanatic! I love that this is the one show that comes on three nights a week. My heart almost can't take Double Eviction night! ;) So far, I would say I'm rooting for Alex to win. Character wise I don't really know that she's my favorite, but I'd definitely say she came to leave a mark on Big Brother! I like Kevin because he's older, he has no filter and he's just hilarious to watch, but I think he's starting to play his game for Paul! I hope I'm wrong. I feel bad for Christmas and her foot, but I do think it's a little unfair that she's still able to compete! As uncomfortable as Cody and Jessica make me feel, I hope Cody wins the Battle Back and shakes that house UP! Can't wait to see what happens!

Sabrina said...

YES!!! I'm addicted to BB! I quit watching it for a few years (no idea why!) but I seriously wish it came on every night!!

Sarah R said...

So don't think it was fair that Christmas was allowed to come back in the house, just doesn't seem fair.

Erin said...

I actually liked Cody. I think he got screwed on his HoH by having to nominate like 10 people which basically meant there wasn't anybody he didn't piss off. I also 100% agree with him that Paul needs to go. I will admit Paul's good at the game, I just can't stand him and think the others are all idiots for keeping him in the game. Jess is right that she is too easy of a target and Alex should be gunning for others. Alex never should have made a deal that keeps so many people safe. Give her herself and maybe one other person (though I can't stand Mark), but agreeing to keep that many people save is a waste of her HoH. I hope Cody wins the Battle Back comp and comes back in to work with the misfits. Oh, and I don't like the Den of Temptation. It makes things drag on and takes too much of the strategy out of the game. And I think Christmas should have left. Part of the game is the isolation and she wasn't isolated in the hospital. Even if she didn't see her family she was able to see hospital staff.

brookerichardson said...

I'm not sure about the whole Christmas thing but when she returned and talked about how bad her foot was messed up, I couldn't help but feel so bad for her. I'm sure she will be safe awhile, so maybe her foot is an advantage now. ;) I like almost all the house guests, I agree with what you said about Jessica though, I have a feeling she will leave the house soon. She really isn't on either side. Who knows maybe she will float on through!!!! I love this show!!!! Maybe a little too much. Lol

Laura Kaupang said...

I've never seen this show but might need to start watching!

Brittany Lewis said...

Sooo much to discuss! haha! First of all I LOVE too that it comes on three nights a week. I wish it came on every night all summer! I have to say, I liked America's Care Package way more than I like the den of temptation. I also think that the punishment Christmas give was way less severe than the one Paul put on Ramses (because he didn't know who he was cursing and it actually could have caused him to be sent home whereas the Ve-toads just had to wear a costume and jump around). As much as I like Christmas, I don't think it was fair that she get to leave and then come back. She was a fierce competitor before the accident but now all she can really do are the non-physical comps. I guess it helps that she can't win HOH or a Veto comp now unless it's one of the non-physical comps? Maybe? I don't know. Also, since it came out on Sunday's episode that Paul talked Kevin into voting for Ramses to stir things up, I'm thinking he may have asked Christmas to do the same (he may have said that on the episode but if so I missed it). I know she wanted Cody out but Paul is wayyyy too good at this game and was smart (?) to break up the votes and freak people out. After Sunday, I'm not a fan of Dominique. I think she was referring to Elena too but I don't understand why. I'm glad Alex didn't respect her for throwing her people under the bus and put her on the block as well. Right now I'm pulling for Mark, Raven and Kevin. They are my favorites so far. I think Paul will get himself to the end again and if that happens, he deserves to win (but I hate when vets are on because they KNOW the game too well) unless he screws up and gets caught in the mess he's trying to make in the house right now. Whew! I could talk about this all day!

Allie said...

Paul is going to win if they don't get him out! He is WAYYYY too good at this game! I mean they do remember that not only is he a veteran, but he won runner up last year, right? I really like Alex! Her and Kevin are some favorites for me too. Josh is a little too crazy at times, but maybe he's settled down a bit? I'm not team Jessica. I mean she didn't know Cody long enough to stay loyal to him when he did what he did. She ruined her game by doing so. I'm partial to Christmas, but only because she's from the city I live in so it would be cool for someone local to win, but I have a feeling the injury will weed her out sooner, rather than later.

I do kind of hope Cody wins the BattleBack comp and comes back into the house - just to stir up drama haha The Den of Temptation is just too much. I wish they would go back to the old way of just strategy and competitions!

Kaylee said...

Love this season!! My mom actually grew up with Kevin! They went to the same high school and he goes into the salon she works at with his family!

COURTNEY BOZEMAN said...

I really didn't like Paul on his previous season but this season, I kinda want him to win! He is really good and so smart with the game. I do hope Cody wins the Battle Back, because although he seemed like a jerk - I think we saw a different side of him on his interview with Julie after he was evicted (maybe that is just me thinking that way?).

Deena @Shoes to Shiraz said...

I haven't watched BB for awhile and have to admit that I kinda miss it!

Ashley Van Dam said...

Oh girl. I looooove Big Brother. I am talking to a level that is unhealthy and probably intervention worthy (... I just got live feeds - dont do it!! It will suck you in).

I am not sure about the Den of Temptation. I cant help but think that the whole Den was created to give Paul 3 weeks of safety because he is so good at the game and such a fan favorite however they knew he would be voted out right away. I LOVED the look on Cody's face when Paul revealed his protection. Priceless.

Speaking of Cody, I did NOT like him AT ALL and I realllly hope that he does not come back. Although, I have a feeling he will. The execs for the show must love his crazy eyes and the story line he can provide so the competition for the returning houseguest will probably be right up his alley. I am rooting for Cameron to come back. He never got a fair shot to live out his dream!!

Christmas - I feel so bad for her. Seriously brutal thing to have happened. It sucks because I think she would have been a beast at the competitions.

Jessica - Did you ever watch The Hills? She reminds me of Kristen from the hills. Young, immature and boy crazy.

Kevin - I agree. I LOOOVE Kevin. He is actually the Dad of the group. He is so funny to listen to when he is talking to Ramses or Josh.

Speaking of Josh, that boy is CRAZY emotional. He just needs to walk away and breath sometimes haha He may have some regrets when he watches the show back.

Paul - Definitely a favorite for me! So happy he is back and I am so happy he seems to be doing so well. His social game is unmatched! Him and Alex teaming up could be dangerous.

Ok... I could talk about BB all day haha

Annie Fasone said...

I love Big Brother!! I've been watching this show forever! I watch the live feeds and all.

Here's my thoughts:

1. I love Raven and Matt and Alex! They are my favorite for sure.

2. Cody drove me crazy! He was so rude, but great entertainment.

3. I think Christmas shouldn't be allowed to keep playing. I don't think it's fair to allow her to recover in that house.

I'm obsessed with Big Brother and could talk about it all the time!

Kristin said...

Erika, we might as well be watching it together because I am thinking the EXACT SAME THINGS AS YOU! I think right now my favorites to win are Alex, Paul, and Kevin. I want all of the Showmances gone! :)

Kirsten said...

I LOVE Kevin, Alex is growing on me. I have a love-hate relationship with Paul, he's SO good at the game. I also have mixed feelings on Christmas. oh and I also LOVE Raven!

Amanda @ That Inspired Chick said...

I agree with all your thoughts! Although Alex has grown on me (she was a little annoying in the live feeds at the beginning but she's calmed down) and Kevin just this dark horse that is becoming quite a little threat! I think people aren't taking him seriously because he's older. He's hustlin' them! Love it!

Jessica...ditch the jerk and maybe I'll like you. (But then again, maybe not??)

Love Elena and Mark. :)

I wasn't sure why Christmas chose Jason either?! But I feel AWFUL for Jason!!! You can tell he is struggling with the guilt he feels towards her accident. Poor guy. I really like him. I can't decide if I think it's fair that Christmas stays in or not. She's got a huge disadvantage now in every single challenge...there's no way she'll be able to win a physical challenge.

Cody. I almost felt a little sorry for him when he got kicked out for good! And even liked him just a tiny bit during his exit interview. I bet he'll get back in the house.

Josh-please let him be the next one to go home. I just don't like his energy. He seems a little unstable and super defensive all the time! He is not my favorite.

Love BB!! I heard the BB discussion going on Sunday night at the party from across the room but I was having my own discussion on something else and felt torn!! haha I wanted to be in both places! Happy Tuesday, friend!

Julie Bradford said...

I LOVE BIG BROTHER.. I started watching the very first BB while I was at college in Auburn and I have NEVER missed a season.. pretty awesome and sad!!! I love that it comes on 3 times a week so we DVR it and then play catch up b/c I can't wait days to see what happens!!! haha so let's talk about the this season..

den of temptation... there are times I like it and times that it drives me totally insane... but I did think it was hilarious when Paul was safe and Cody was like uh-oh... I was NOT a fan of Cody in the house but when he was talking Julie in the interview I actually liked him.. so if he goes back in the house maybe he will be different.

I do really like Alex.. I think she is great at the game.. I like watching Paul and I think he is a great competitor therefore they better get him out. I don't really want him winning since he was runner up last year.
I really like Matt and Raven. Raven tickles me and Matt just seems like a good guy and he's really cute :)
Josh.. oh my goodness...that dude DRIVES me crazy!!! I can't even go there.
Christmas.. I felt so bad for her talking about her foot and arthritis.. I cried watching and made me feel terrible for Jason.. he's a funny dude.
Kevin.. at first I was like oh come on BB but I really like him... he is laying low.. I LOVE IT!!!

So I don't know who I want to win right now... give me a few more weeks to see how the house turns on each other bc you know it's going to happen. HA
thanks for the Tuesday talk about BB... FAVORITE.SHOW.EVER!!!!

Tiffany Davis said...

Hey! So Paul asked Christmas and Kevin to vote to keep Cody. I saw it in the feeds. He wanted to see what the house would do/say. Pailful has a good game. Although I don't like that he has another shot... I love seeing his game play this season.

Christmas....I love her. I hope they keep her around until the jury house.

Alex has a great game play too. And I like that she is playing along with Paul right now. I think that will keep her around till the end.

Melanie said...

We are HUGE BB fans around our house. Even our 9 year old loves it. Your thoughts on this season could very well be my own!!! I am also confused about why Christmas cursed Jason and I also don't think she should be able to stay in the house since she really can't "compete" to stay inside. I think Alex will go far, but it really bothers me that she is letting Paul and her agreement with Elena to control her time as HOH. Someone is going to have to make a bold move and break up the showmances, but it will have to be someone who has the other half the house pretty wrapped in order to do it, so I am thinking Paul. How are Ramses and Josh still in the house? I don't feel like Jessica is a threat because she is all alone at this point, so I am not sure I agree with putting her up for eviction other than to keep the rest of the house happy since they all want her gone. I think Matt might be a sleeper and come on strong at the end. He has no real enemies and I don't think we have seen his ability to influence the votes since he hasn't been in a position of power yet. I like the Den of Temptation because it brings a whole different level to the game, but it can take most of the strategy out of the game (we saw this when Cody tried to put Paul up).

Sarah Kuykendall said...

Ha! This show kills my brain cells but I still watch every summer!
Cody is creepy with his expressions and no talking.
Kevin cracks me up.
I love Ramses.
Alex is a beast.
I love Christmas but it did seem weird she got to leave the house and return. Maybe they allowed it bc that one girl with blue hair already left early?
Elena is so pretty.
I feel like Matt (Mark?), the big guy, has the hots for Christmas AND Elena.

ehomaha said...

LOVE Big Brother! I get so excited for Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays in the summer! It's my new tv during the summer months! I agree that I think Alex has the best shot. And Kevin is so fun. He does whatever people tell him and it never comes back on him - he's like, sure, whatever!! :)) Paul is fun to watch too - he's great at the game! So glad Cody's gone! I wish Christmas wasn't hurt - she's an awesome competitor too!!

MississippiMagnoliaMommy said...

You are not alone! I LOVE Big Brother as well! I've gotten my husband even hooked on it too! It's our favorite summer show. I have to say at first, I wasn't too thrilled about the Den of Temptation, but after seeing the look on Cody's face! Priceless! I love it now. I feel like it puts a different spin on things! I think she put Jason as a toad because she knows he is a rodeo clown & is used to dressing up. I also can't figure out why Christmas wanted to keep Cody. I do not think it is fair for her to stay there because she can't do any physical challenge. I was totally confused on the whole Dominique thing too! I am also not a fan of Jessica or Josh. I think Alex has the best chance of winning if they can get Paul out.

Jen said...

I've posted here before that my family (and extended family) pick players and we are ALL IN this BB season. I wish it were on more days in the week! The beginning of my week is like blah hurry up Wednesday. Don't forget this week its on wed, thurs, FRIDAY and sunday. They are battling back in Friday. Man, I know Cody is going to win and come back. I really hope its Cameron who didn't get to play.

Paul is my player so although it's a bit unfair that he's back in, I am all for it! My husband picked Alex so we are routing for that team. I just hope they can keep the numbers on that side and Alex continues to work with him. I think she could win if she can keep enough people on her side.

I don't love the den of temptation, it can really alter the game. Christmas... I was routing for her before, but I think homegirl needs to leave and rest up her foot. No team Jessica here, she's got to go.

Britt Hensley said...

Yay!!! I love Big Brother, and clearly based on all the comments tons of other readers out there in blog-land do too! I think Cody shot himself in the foot when he over-played his hand too early. The showmance clearly hurt his game too! I love Alex too!! Fun season already with tons of twists a turns.
#TeamJulieChenALLtheWay!

Whitney Pegram said...

Eeeek! I'm obsessed & definitely not a fan of Jessica!

Misty Harriman said...

FRIENDSHIP! I love Paul, I can't help it! He makes me laugh and he's GOOD at the game. Alex is right up there with her game play though, the girl is smart. 🤓🙌🏻

Melanie Smith said...

LOVE Kevin and Alex; I think Alex should win. I just hate how everyone is so duped by Paul. He's playing an awesome game, but why are they letting him decide everything!? They will let him win.

Loved Cody when they introduced him, but hated his character. And Jessica was even worse than him. I mean they are bullies!
