As you know, the battle back competition will be airing tomorrow night in a special Friday edition of Big Brother. In order to prevent that episode from going unwatched, CBS is blocking the feeds from later today until after the west coast episode airs (roughly 9 pm pst).

This means the feeds until tomorrow night will either be extremely slow or off altogether because Thursday afternoons are typically spent with people sitting in front of mirrors getting ready.  What this means for you?  Take a break! Or stay here and chat about the house.  Or go catch up on some DVR.  The world is your oyster.

The house has been talking about the possibility of a battle back competition, so I’m a bit surprised talk hasn’t pushed more for Jess to get evicted, but there is always today.  Most seemed to have moved on to next week as once again a houseguest is doing little to no campaigning to remain in the house (Dom). Jess has been working hard to mend fences broken when Cody did the horrible thing of trying to nominate the biggest threat in the house, while Dom has spent most of the time in isolation.  It’s very frustrating to see this because nobody can really list a solid reason why Dom needs to be evicted right now.  For situations like that, even moderately skilled players should be able to talk their way out of the eviction, but Dom is just praying and hoping for some divine intervention.

There is still no word on who won the temptation this week.  Judging by the polls and the people involved, this makes me think Kevin or Alex won, although Jess was really relaxed after the feeds returned, so she’s a third possibility.  I think Alex or Kevin because neither really trust anyone in the house enough to tell them they won, and both have been high on popularity polls around the Big Brother world. I am still not sure anyone knows that Kevin is the one who took the $25k, so he’s pretty damn good at keeping a secret.  If I were to bet, I’d say Kevin is holding the power and will be able to stop one of the next four evictions.  This basically amounts to a week of immunity because it’s highly unlikely he’ll use it unless he’s the one sitting on the block. There is a chance he’d save Paul, but I would like to believe he’s smarter than that. We’ll see.

Regarding the battle back competition, this is how it will go (if they go by last year’s BB comp):

Round 1 – Cameron vs Jillian
Round 2 – r1 winner vs Cody
Round 3 – r2 winner vs Dom/Jess

Round 3 winner gets to return to the house.

Let’s run a quick poll…..

I’m off for a bit, but I will be posting the results from the first two weeks of popularity polls later on.  Week 3 is open for voting, so be sure to do that!

    Dom might have thought there would be an early battle back, if she has watched BB previously and with her direct line to God. This should have led her to ‘work the room’ and campaign to stay. Again, she is on the block against Jessica…*yawn*. I hope she doesn’t win a second chance, because I think she hasn’t made anything out of this first chance. Yea, I know, they have been mean to her. This is the g-a-m-e! It is time for Dom to head home.

    All the votes for Cameron are the Cody haters! He will actually stir up the house so it isn’t the Paul Puppet Show™.

      Or they may just be cuz they want to see what fresh meat would do to the game. I’d rather have Cody come back but the fresh meat option would be interesting to watch too.

      Out of all I would like to see Cameron be the one to come back….not because I’m a Cody hater….because Cameron is the only one that has not had any chance to play…..Jillian had a chance…she had no game…she was as exciting and interesting as watching paint dry….Cody had his chance and most of my dislike for him comes from how he treated people ….same with both Dom and Jessica…both have had at least a chance to play……..

      Actually that is not true Jake. I was okay with Cody being evicted because he was too big for his britches, although I do applaud him taking an early shot at Paul. I didn’t like him in his gross-mance with Jessica. I would prefer Cameron to come back in because he is an unknown. Of the other choices, Cody would be my second choice, hoping that he would put his gross-mance to the side and play the game. By the way, in his interview with Jeff, Cody said he would work with Paul, if going back in, so the hope for an end to the ‘Paul Puppet Show’ may not end with Cody re-entering the house.

        If I were Paul I would not trust Cody. He already lied to him about not targeting him & in the same breath he turned right around & came for Pau with both guns ablazing even though he missed. Then he came for Christmas just because she was close to Paul & he missed again & got Jillian evicted. He is a cold hearted, psycho bully & I wouldn’t want any part of him. Paul could do the same thing & lie to him & use him but when it comes to endurance comps in the end, I don’t think Paul could win so he would have to take a shot at getting him out before the end. I don’t think I would take that chance other smiling in his face while I have a huge hunting knife buried in his back waiting for the right time to make that kill.

        Kevin will have to keep doing what he’s doing laying low & collecting cash anytime the opportunity arises. Kevin has had it in his mind from day 1 that he is not going home with empty pockets. If he can’t win 1st prize he’s got enough sense to get whatever cash he can while the getting is good. Now that’s what I’m talking about. I didn’t like Kevin in the beginning but he’s grown on me quite a bit once I figured out Mr. Kevin is playing these people & he knows what he’s doing.

        I’m sick of Mark’s big crybaby ass, all he needs is a diaper, a pacifier & a damn rattle. Miss Cleo just might get her Mark by the time she gets through showering & saying Hakuna Matata or whatever it is she’s chanting.

        And in the end, between stipends and money won along the way, some HGs have done better than landing in 2nd place, moneywise. I will encourage Kevin to pocket as much ‘for-sure scratch’ that he can, and though it is early I think he might have a shot as AFP.

    Has anyone heard what the twist is going to be? Last week the live show mentioned that the battleback could be blocked and no one would return. Has there been anymore info on how this might happen?

    • Profile photo of Ike7482
      Comments (191)

      not that I’ve heard, I think they’re trying to keep it under wraps until it actually happens, my guess is that accepting the halting hex allows the battle back to occur, since they said that the curse will effect th whole house, and a evicted player returning would effect the whole house

        Comments (859)

        The only thing about that is if the temptation wasn’t taken, what would they have done for the Friday show?
        I guess they could still do the battle back and then announce it was all for nothing.

      • Profile photo of Ike7482
        Comments (191)

        very true. did they tell them this is the last temptation? if they knew, then it could heavily influence taking it. But also I believe Kevin, Alex, jess, and Dom were the top for it. Jess + Dom would take it, I feel like Kevin will take whatever he’s given (that $27 was hilarious though), and Alex talked about not taking it, but then again if I was granted that, there’s no way in hell I’m giving that temptation up lol

        Lindsay, yeah I completely agree. They’ve did really well keeping this under wraps. Normally there is at least a tiny leak of some sort.

      They really should announce the power of the halting hex, at least to us and not necessarily the hg’s, before Friday’s battle back begins. It looks sketchy if it is announced AFTER we see who wins. There is no reason America can’t know before the battle back begins.

    I low-key want victor to host the battle back comps with a crown on since he’s the battle back king, it would be hilarious to bring him back in general for a comp

    • Profile photo of antsal
      Comments (159)

      The only way you’ll see Victor back on the show is if he is part of the battle back and he comes into the house to help Paul since his 3 (actually 4) weeks of safety are up. LOL. Expect the expected!

    I know the halting hex is to be used during the live eviction show, but I wonder at what point it is to be used. Before or after they know who is being evicted?
    I hope whoever got it is smart enough to keep their mouth shut and save it to use on themselves, but fear that the Paul worshipers will be stupid enough to use it on him. If he finds out they have it he will definitely work to convince them to.
    I really don’t think Jess has it because she again questioned Dom about having it in a late night conversation.

    Ok, I’m just watching last night’s show & I’m freaking scared. What the hell is up with Dom in the shower? I almost turned my tv off. The girl is straight up trippin. One night I woke up to somebody talking like that on tv on the BET channel & it scared the living shit out of me. I started screaming & my youngest son who lives with me came busting in my room & I got the hell out of there & slept in another room with the light on & I do not turn my tv on BET after dark ever.
    Dom creeps me the hell out & if I had been in that house when she was doing that I would never be around her & I would not sleep alone. Hell, I would probably pull a Raven & attach myself around somebody’s damn neck.

      It’s an Old Testament biblical thing called speaking in tongues. No one has used it since Jesus’ time and most who “use” it now are false prophets and fakes.

        @Zach speaking in tongues is not Old Testament but a New Testament phenomenon (see the book of Acts) It’s mostly practiced in Charismatic and Pentecostal churches around the world. It may be weird to some but there are thousands of people who embrace this spiritual practice mostly commonly know as their prayer language.

      I couldnt agree more about Dom! I was freaked out just watching it, had to tell my son to leave the room because that was NOT a conversation i was going to have with my 7 year old! Granted he only watches the comps and usually is not paying attention to anything else! But still, wonder if Dom realizes how much of a nut job she seems to be?!?

      Angel, In today’s world I think speaking in tongues takes away from the true message of Jesus. However, I don’t think this is the appropriate platform to discuss religion further. I’d be happy to private message you if you’d like to discuss it more in depth.

        Comments (56)

        @zach hey man no further dialogue needed. I simply responded to comments already posted in this thread placing speaking in tongues in the Old Testament vs. the New Testament after the ascent of Christ (its after). Just stating the facts man. People are definitely entitled to their opinion about it being a cultic practice or any other explanation they can concoct to describe their discomfort….

      Oh Ann, you’re a hoot!
      Hi everyone! I am in the game a little late, still catching up… Very busy summer dealing with a serious family health issue(my sister was diagnosed stage 4 melanoma 6 weeks ago)…so, yeah, getting adjusted to that. But I am getting my head in the game, just wanted to let you all know I have been reading and laughing…thanks all!
      So I just have a couple of observations about the players… They will change, I’m sure, because I still haven’t watched all of the episodes.
      Mark – wtf…seems like he is auditioning for a soap opera in the diary room.
      Kevin – I actually kind of like him. At least there are a few “over 30’s” in the house. And I saw him “being dad” with Ramses…his advice was crazy…but he may just be a really smart player.
      Dom – i agree with Ann, she was OK until she started the wacky talk…but I do want someone to go against Paul, because i am about done with his obnoxious personality. So I hope that either Dom or Cameron(poor Cameron) get back into the house.
      The rest I haven’t quite figured out yet…but I am liking this season better than last season, that was the worst! No one has made me want to throw a brick at the tv yet…
      Thanks again Stevebeans and everyone(NKog, Ann, Colby, danm, etc, etc…) – I may not be on much, but I am reading and being entertained by you all!
      ❤️

        NK I agree with you… I actually like Dom but her lack of strategy and game play is obvious. Her riddles and side talking are annoying and further ostracized her away from her team, making her disposable. I’m not crying when she leaves, neither should Mark… she didn’t fight to stay. Her tantrum is a direct contradiction of her faith in God and in her teammates.

      I guess many people feel that Paul is a bully (see definition below) and the best way to deal with a bully is with another bully. Despite the fact that Cody told Paul he wanted to work with him if he stayed. Don’t believe it.

      “Bully: a person who uses strength or power to harm or intimidate those who are weaker.” Weaker not only refers to strength but lack of smarts and common sense. We have a house full who fit that mold.

        He was all about his own agenda, and was incapable of playing nice with others. I know you have to play your own game, but his style is not one anyone could work with. Heck Jess was with him every waking moment & he wouldn’t let her in. Come on now…

      I for one want Cody back, for exactly that – he will stir it up.

      He is a competition beast. He may get on some peoples nerves, but it’s all about having the best players outplay and outsmart each other.

      I would rather have a great competition, instead of having a player coast to the end, and have a boring season.

      For me, that’s why I think it’s good to have Cody back in.

    Hi All….. Cody hater here. I’m going to bring up a couple of things. Cody asked Jess to be his GF outside of BB. I can see it now…… James & Nat all over again. And he’s 32 not 20 something. And does Jess know he has a kid? Now, if he gets back into the BBH……. Will he have learned anything about game play? I would love to see Cameron get s chance to play. If Jess is evicted, and someone like Cody go back in…..?

    Ok I’m confused on the temptation. If they block an eviction is the other person on the block automatically evicted? Do they put up another player in the other person place and they all vote again or once the blocked eviction is used nobody gets evicted?

        like Instead of any vote, they would stand up and pull out the hex and say something like “the den of temptation granted me this, and I’m using it to halt this eviction”, and if my theory is correct, then they would anncouce that the curse is a player returning in a battle back

        Makes sense though. If someone stops an eviction, no one is evicted. I was thinking the other evictee would go home automatically but maybe not. That’d be interesting, Dom and Jess stays, Cody comes back.

        I thought about that, but since you don’t have to exclusively be on the block, they wouldn’t have anyone to automatically go home. Like if mark got it (no way in hell that he did), and he wasn’t being an ass to Dom, he could use it for her, or if Jason hot it and randomly used it for jess, then there’s no one to automatically go home. If it was meant only to be used in yourself, then maybe, but this is all up in the air since they love to keep us on the edge of our feet

      Ditto on that… often times I find the ones I originally root for in the beginning I will end up changing my mind on later…who knows …it’s entertaining…and Cody was the only one who stood up against Paul, hopefully without Jess there as a distraction he can play a better social/mental game and not be such an asshat/bully. I still haven’t decided who I am rooting for at this point…I thought maybe Kevin but not sure…imma flipping flopper too!!!!

    If Cody comes back and forms an Alliance with Paul. Would it be the strongest two person alliance in the history of BB? Cody has challenges down pat, I think he won every one he was in this season. Paul has taken his social manipulation to another level that I’d put on par with how Derek worked the house in his season.

        It definitely would be interesting to see. Sure the next few weeks might be “boring” but after that I think once we get to jury things would heat up. Especially if there is another battleback comp lurking in the future(I personally think there will be) side note: have you ever tried out for BB? I went last season to a local casting call but didn’t hang around to get interviewed.

        I think Cody may have learned a thing or two, and may do things very differently. I do think he may work with Paul, right up until enough of the others realize that Paul has to go if they want any chance of winning, and then he will boot him in a heartbeat.

I wish they would do a season of fans only. No one with a secondary agenda to further their career or to get some publicity to launch themselves into the public eye.

        @ann Cody is a one trick pony. And i’m 30 but I agree. I’d like to see maybe a group of HGs 30+ in age. I think the game would be more tedious but at the same time I think it could be interesting to see how it’s played differently. Survivor casts a lot of older people and it’s still a wildly popular reality TV show. I think BB could do the same. Or at least mix it up more with more seasoned players. Some of my favorites have been older players like Donnie from a few years ago and Kevin this season.

        I bet Kevin sees Paul as being the biggest threat. It’s still a little early to make the move, because it seems like he is allied with everyone.

    The only thing clear to me about the Halting Hex is that it can be used on any of the next four evictions. It would stop anyone at all from going home that week. The players don’t know anything about Friday’s Battle Back. The Battle Back is going to happen Friday, regardless. Maybe the temptation winner has been told that accepting the Hex unleashes the chance for someone who was evicted to come back into the game. I say this keeping in mind that we viewers know about the Battle Back show on Friday and the players are in the dark about it.

    Supposedly this 3rd temptation is the last one of its kind. This doesn’t mean that much. Production can unleash a new way to keep things complicated. Plus the Battle Back and any possible double evictions are going to mess with the players’ plans and schemes anyhow.

    What I wonder is WHEN the temptation may start to be used. Will it effect this eviction tonight or not? We don’t have to wait much longer to find out, especially on the east coast when we’ll know plenty more in 4 to 5 more hours.

    Raven and Matt were approaching Paul about voting out Jessica instead of Dominique, trying to see whether he’d be open to it. Obviously these two don’t dare risk pissing off Paul by just voting Jessica out – by voting as they would choose. Geez.

      I see it as opposite…..Kevin may have been the one to get it…stipulation may be it can be used during the next four evictions but if not used tonight then another player returns…..it would make more sense…if halting hex is used tonight it leaves 13 housepets….if not used it goes to 12 with battle back taking it back to 13..,,,it may be why Kevin told camera in HOH last night….I find don’t feel good!

    To me, it’d be marvelous if Kevin got his hands on this Halting Hex. He’s not only entertaining. He’s a gambling man, he’s pretty crafty as a player and he has a good heart, as evidenced by the way he treats people. Also, no matter what he says or how diplomatic he keeps things, I think that Kevin sees Paul much more realistically than anyone else in the house. It’s like that beautiful Jimi Hendrix song.

    Kevin: ” Have you ever been experienced? Well, I have.”

      I agree with you, Paul is playing the best game but Kevin is the dark horse and IMO 2nd best player this season. He sees that he can sit back and let Paul control things and go along with Paul so he does not pose a threat(similar to how Paul was with Paulie last season before he lost his marbles) I think if Kevin can stick around long enough he will be the one to take Paul out. Kind of like Steve sending Vanessa packing right before the finale.

      Don’t get me wrong, I love Kevin, but he doesn’t treat people as well as they (HG) think. He does show a sensitive caring side..when he’s in front of them, but behind their backs, he talks about them just as badly as the rest of them. Case in point: He’s always encouraging and joking around with Josh, Ram, Xmas and Raven, but behind their backs he says Josh is an idiot, Ram and Raven are annoying and he wants all 4 of them gone.

        Right Zach! I like that he can keep his mouth shut (although he did tell Paul about the $25K, which might come back to bite him later). Some of them have started to suspect him but none have been able to actually catch him yet. I hope it’s a while before they do. I’d very much like for him to stick around for a bit longer.

    Now that we’ve got some down time, I’d like to take a minute to b!tch about a couple that I’ve been bitching about for the last few weeks. Heck, maybe I’ll take some time over the next 24 hours to express my thoughts on a few others. But for now…Mark and Elena.

    Everyone has noted how much time Grody and Messica spent together when he was in the house. Yet no one has talked about how much time these two spend together. Not only are they together almost constantly during the day, but notice that they are ALWAYS the last to go to bed every night. My belief is that it’s because Mark wants more alone time with her and she wants more time on camera.

    At first, only Elena annoyed me. Now Mark has shot up to an even keel. She is a selfish, self centered, narcissistic, ball-buster. And he is just an overgrown, walking, talking p*ssy. Not because he cries, there is nothing shameful about a man crying (Ram cried because they thought he was a trader; last year Paul cried because he thought he might get kicked out of the house; Cowpoke cried because he broke Xmas’ leg; Josh cries because he feels like he’s embarrassing his family, when in reality, they probably don’t give a damn what he says or does as long as he brings home the $$$). He’s one because he no longer cares about winning anything other than her approval and affection.

    He spends 90% of his time wrapped around her like a python, cooing, making goo goo eyes, planting kisses and trying to cop a feel. She spends 90% of her time flaunting her “assets” in front of everyone, especially Mark and Paul (with and emphasis on Paul, which I’ll get to in a second). She taunts and teases Mark constantly and he falls for it every time. She presses her body, as well as body parts, closely against him, she kisses him, then when he responds, tells him she doesn’t like to be touched. She eviscerates, obliterates and emasculates him with her words every chance she gets (and she gets a lot).

    She also has this obsession with Paul. It is not reciprocated. He laughs and plays along with her (to a certain extent), but shows no real interest. She tries to use Paul to make Mark jealous, which it does. But Mark won’t say anything to Paul because, well because he’s a p*ssy. (Let me take a moment to note that if noticed, Mark only goes after people like Josh or Ram, who he perceives as weak). She tries to use Mark to make Paul jealous, but to no avail. At first, she would only pull up on Paul when Mark wasn’t around. Since Paul isn’t impressed with her vamp act, she tries harder now and is just blatant about it. Case in point, last night everyone was in the wave room (sans Mark). Elena was laying in Paul’s arms and she was running her hand up and down his chest. She starts to play with her nipple and makes a remark about it. Paul pays no attention to it (she has the weirdest obsession with her own breast). Mark comes in and snuggles up behind and puts his arm around her waist. She never moves away from Paul and Mark doesn’t say a word…because he’s a p*ssy. Paul finally sits up and she has no choice but to let him. That’s just ONE example, we have witnessed many more.

    I’m ready for both of them to be gone. I’m sick of his adventures into masturbation (see last night’s Live Feed for that conversation) and I’m sick of her adventures into ways to make him masturbate. Hell, as sickening as Cody and Jessica were together, they never were nearly as overly sexual as these two. At this point, I just want the HG to kick them out the house and let them go get a room (although most likely Mark would be checking in alone).

      In Elena’s defense, she does have really great tits.(cut me some slack, I’m a guy) LMAO but I agree she is pretty annoying and very self centered/diva. Is it just me or are the ladies on this season more slooty sloots than normal? I don’t ever remember the female cast ever being this forwardly sexual toward the guys, at least not to this volume. As for Mark, I really think he is on steroids. I was a nurse for several years before I got into the IT side of healthcare and most of the male patients we had who were on steroids were very emotionally unstable, especially when they came off of them(he obviously can’t take them while he is on the show)

      At this point in my ‘BB watching life’ I don’t root for anyone in a gross-mance. Over the seasons, the ‘forced physical’ nature of relationships has become more obvious, in part due to the fact that Production wants voyeuristic feed viewers to subscribe.

        Agreed Elaine, but at this point, if we are voyeurs, then the Production crew are sex addicts. You would think that even though these HG know they are on national TV, they wouldn’t try to have sex, even sneakily. Production will shout out warnings about them not having their mics high enough, dancing or singing, but say nothing when they are trying to “get down”.

That said, make jokes about her if you want, but she is one of only two people who have figured out who is the biggest threat in the house.

        Derek was definitely smooth, probably one of the best BB gamers of all-time. Definitely top 3-4. So with that being said, Paul obviously isn’t playing as well as Derek, but his game is mimicking Derek’s. You know what they say, imitation is the best form of flattery.

        Or, the mental capabilities of those around Paul. Always easier watching it on TV, but, really, did ANYONE watch him at all last season? He only became “friendship” Paul after his hard play at the very start of last season with Victor put him on the same level as Jessica this year on the totem pole. He worked his way up with going low-key and his “friendship Paul” BS. People forgot about him for a while and they went after each other, saving Paul. But, could any HG have watched last season and not realized Paul is a snake in his gameplay?

        Cody said early on that Paul didn’t make it to F2 by being loyal to everyone. No one seemed to pay attention, because they were blinded by the cocky attitude of Cody. I will give him that statement, because it could be prophetic if not heeded by the HGs.

        @jimbo, I think that’s the reach. Last season Paul was never on the level of Jessica. No one thought of him as a threat the entire game. Yeah initially they thought he was a very brash dude. But, not a threat and definitely grew on people as the game went on. Also, last season he was pretty loyal to people he said he would be loyal to. This season, he has changed it up, used what people knew about him from last season and played them with it.

      • Profile photo of jimbo
        Comments (306)

        What I mean is, level on the totem pole. Right now, Jessica is rock bottom. After Paul was arrogant and a jerk at the start, brashly stating he was going after all “vets”, that they didn’t “deserve” another chance, he and Vic were immediately attacked and their game’s destroyed — so I mean he was in the same power position as Jess is now. This was the first 2 weeks — re-watch. He was a brash jerk, no mincing words, and he’s lucky they got Vic out first. He went low-key, kissed Paulie’s ass, and then “lasted” as other people (mainly Paulie) caused issues that made everyone forget newly formed”Friendship Paul.”

      Well, I never said Paul was the LOWEST at the start of last season, but pretty low. Jess is, too, pretty low. Neither Paul last season (after 2 weeks) nor Jess now have any power, or were a threat. Paul was neutered for like 6 weeks, the “friendship” Paul wormed (snaked) his way back in.

    @nkogneetow Elena acts like a swinger, sexually speaking. I was acquainted with a person who put a new age spin on being with multiple lovers and she was into what she called polyamory. She never married and had no children but had a trust fund, so no need to work. She wanted to have sex with people who didn’t choose to form exclusive relationships. Polyamory, of course, has a wiki page and lots of other exposure. I don’t think that Elena is sophisticated enough to be into polyamory and might not have heard of it. She’s more like an old-fashioned bordello madame. Her picture could appear below the definition of “bawdy.” It looks like she is afraid of commitment for personal reasons, and Mark is much too needy to float her boat.

        I don’t find it attractive or sophisticated either. Polyamory, as I said, is supposed to be new age stuff and has a following who think of themselves as a step above swngers. It’s swinging with “good manners” and individual boundaries and rules that are supposedly agreed upon to avoid jealousy and attachment situations. Elena is not a new age goddess type. I doubt that she’s heard of polyamory. Elena seems to like a good time ho’ down. She mentioned her father bringing a longhorn steer into her dorm room.

        Shi, I thought polyamory was a person who doesn’t identify as male or female and has no preference in sexual partners (they love who they love). I could be wrong, but that’s the way a self proclaimed polyamory person explained it to me. Until then, I had never heard of the term before.

        @nkogneetow Polyamorous is actually the practice of having multiple people in a relationship. I’m not involved in the practice, but I know of people who are. Example: a person is in a relationship with 3 others at the same time, with all of them knowing it. Similar to the show sister wives.

        She is fascinated with Paul though…she can not keep her hands off…….I think it shocked her a couple of days ago when she kept trying to rub her boobs on Paul that he told her to stop,that she was making him uncomfortable…….she stopped but is right back at it!
        If I were Paul’s “little burrito ” I’d be sending him the next HOH letter and telling him to tell that BBB ( big bosomed biatch) to keep her hands and boobs to herself!!

    Former BB player Wil “ain’t nobody got time for 2 ells” Heuser has 3 BB19 videos out so far this Season, playing Julie Chen, Cody, Paul, Jessica, etc. with his comic satire and costume talents still bringing some fabulous entertainment. And there’s more Raven stuff, also on youtube. “Raven Exposed” shows some interviews with Raven’s mother that could be straight out of a horror movie. The woman who made the video has said that she’s working on Raven Exposed part 2.

      I saw that and it was pretty interesting. Have you seen the 1 minute video of Ravens mother talking with the doctor? It was very strange.
      I watch Wils Saga every year!

        @Tooms_BB is the Twitter account I saw the videoon. It BB Tom’s (the one who claims to use the megaphone to yell stuff at the hgs. The tweet said they saw it on instagram, the mothers I’m assuming. You can tell she’s trying to get him to say certain things but he’s very careful with his wording and then she asks him a question, I think about people dying or something terminal and the video abruptly ends, suspiciously before his answer. I’m still looking for the other one.

        Most of this stuff that I’ve seen is on youtube, with one exception that I linked from Jokers. Raven Exposed is a video that showed up as a youtube offering, since youtube looks at your search history and recommends its various videos to you based on your search history. It’s very convenient.

    For every ‘thumbs down’ I am going to use ‘mad Bronte math’ and mentally turn it into a +2 ‘thumbs up’.

    Josh OMG, Seriously Dude . . . .. . WTH? He needs to get a fricken grip. He was all over the place with Mark. Josh has no credibility. Remember what you say and stick with it, or people will see you as being easily manipulated and not someone of their word. Josh is trying to play, but, clearly has issues. Good Luck Josh, because Mark is a man of his word and he didn’t play badly as you did. Like Josh when you were yelling as Mark was taking his shot.
