This week, Paul won the Power of Veto (POV) and secured all the power in the “Big Brother” house. Prior to his win, Paul made it clear that his targets are both Cody Nickson and the latter’s showmance, Jessica Graf. However, Cody is a competition beast, and he could easily save himself in the POV if Paul nominated him.

With this, Paul came up with a backup plan to put Alex Ow and Jason Dent up as his pawns for the week. He asked both houseguests to throw the competition for him, and both of them agreed. However, it was only Jason that followed through with their agreement. Alex was worried that Paul would backdoor her so she fought until the end.

After Paul won the POV for this week, he also did his part in honoring his agreement with Jason. He took him off the block and replaced him with his main target, Cody. Now that Alex, Cody and Ramses Soto are all nominated for eviction, the remaining houseguests would have to think long and hard about which one they should keep in the game.

Both Alex and Cody are competitive houseguests so they could win the upcoming Head of Household (HOH) and POV games. Ramses, on the other hand, has been playing it safe for the past two weeks so he isn’t a huge threat in the house.

Meanwhile, another houseguest will gain access to this week’s Den of Temptation, the Halting Hex. This privilege gives the recipient the chance to stop an eviction ceremony from taking place. The houseguest can also use the power regardless of whether or not he or she is nominated during that particular week. Unfortunately, with this power comes another curse that could put a houseguest in huge danger.

Who do you think will be voted out of the house this week and who will receive the Halting Hex?

“Big Brother” Season 19 airs Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. EDT on CBS.
