A Few Quick Touch-Ups. #BB19

The live feeds are still down, and will return after the West Coast airing of the "special" Wednesday night CBS episode.   I have a few news items, and follow up from yesterday's post.


The same spoiler who announced Megan's departure, and also that Josh tried to self-evict has been providing accurate spoilers on Reddit all season.  And we're all grateful, so I don't want to shoot the messenger, but this person clearly enjoys the attention.  He or she was lurking on the BB subreddit all day, replying a few times to the posters who were thirsty for the information, begging for scraps of news and profusely thanking the The Spoiler, giddy with excitement if The Spoiler acknowledged them in a post.

It's not that serious, people.  It's not like the information spoiled is going to make us happy.  And the poster stans Christmas, so there's that.


If true (and I think it is), then the vote WAS split, and Josh COULD have evicted Kevin.  But let's face it, there is not even a 50/50 chance that Alex would work with Josh to target Paul.  In fact, it seems nearly certain that Paul would get to Alex first, joining forces with her as they stumble to the finish line.

Remember when Mark tried to get Jason to help him target Paul?  Remember what happened to Mark during the first Double Eviction?  So I can't really blame Josh for not keeping Alex, because his odds of going to the Final Three with Paul and Christmas are much higher, and he knows that.  We can still hope that Josh evicts Paul in the #3 spot, but I think we should try to look forward to the audience reaction to the Finale Events.  Like cheers if Josh wins a competition, or boos if (or WHEN) Paul does.   (Jordan Lloyd said the BB11 finalists clearly heard the audience cheer when she beat Natalie Martinez in a finale competition, live in the backyard.)

I did cut off the bottom part of the spoiler's message, where they were saying that their phone battery was only at 4% so they didn't know if they could come back with more info. And everyone begged, and pleaded, of course.  Whatever.


Yes yes, Paul won the HoH.  And he apparently won this same competition last year in this same spot.  But no one said this would be fair, now did they?  I haven't seen the PoV spoiler yet, so I'm not sure if that will be coming before the episode or not.  If I see it, I'll tweet it out.

And I cut off the bottom part of this spoiler message, too, as it was a rather dramatic paragraph about how he or she was criticized and attacked all season, but did make a few "friends" in the process.

Yeah, okay.  Whatever.


I inadvertently omitted Elena's comic in yesterday's post.  A thousand apologies, Elena.  She's Hellena, and she Hath No Fury.  Well, I understand the "Hell Hath No Fury" saying, because it's as old as time, but isn't the point of this BB Comic that Hellena DOES have some pent up anger?  And deathly flame-throwing potential?

The artist certainly depicted Elena in a flattering manner, using their imagination to give Elena some impressive muscle tone, as well as a top providing adequate support for a change.  I think Elena will love this BB Comic.  I guess we'll find out tonight if she's turned Mark into a torched, crispy mess yet in the Jury house.

The Final Five BB Comics were released yesterday, but not officially, so the picture quality is rather substandard.  It's a disservice to the artists, really, because these smeary pictures are the ones being documented now on all of the BB blogs, because some girl who worked on the competitions this season tweeted out  a picture of all of the BB Comics, and everyone is chopping that up to present the information.

And here are the smeary close-ups.  Let's just get to the worst ones first, okay?  Because clearly two of the BB Comics were scathing, bubbling with hatred and scorn.


Yeah.  Paul is The Potty Mouth, after a Toxic Toilet Turned the MotorMouth in a direction none of us saw coming.  Because Paul's "Motormouth" comic last season was quite flattering to him.  But this one, not so much.

 Paul has been STEWING over this.  It's worse than Austin's BB Comic in BB17, which showed waves of stink coming off him.  Is it Paul's breath?  Is it the scaly mouth syndrome that he was so anxious about a few weeks ago, showing everyone the skin inside his mouth that was worrying him?

I guess Paul could spin it that he's plunging the crap out of the toilet, but why would you want to?   The downside to this, from my perspective, is that Paul is now well-aware that his public reception is probably "gumpy".   Is that a pack of hot dogs strapped to his right shoulder?


And this one is BAD, too.  Christmas Joy is The Fa La La Lunatic, and She'll Make You Feliz NaviDead.  Sure her abs look tight and all, but being called a Fa La La Lunatic is never a flattering moment.

I haven't heard the house guests talk much about this, so that kind of told me it wasn't something positive. I did hear Christmas say to Josh that she thought her comic made her look like "kind of a bad ass", but surely she's tossing and turning, thinking about this one.

The reindeer looks sad, too.  Is he drooling a little, too?  Is that normal for a reindeer?


Alex is the Weiner Woman, and she's Serving up Justice One Wiener at a Time.  I guess this is okay, but I would have preferred some sort of Camp Counselor from Hell, or something like that.  But she did cook up a lot of wieners, so I get the connection.  I think they could have depicted Alex as someone who tortures senior citizens, too.  Just saying.  But she looks cute in the picture, so I'm sure that is Alex's biggest concern.


Josh is The Meatball, Leaving Destruction and Marinara in His Wake.  Josh was not happy about this, because apparently his mission was to brand Mark as the meatball, not himself.  So we all misunderstood what he was saying.  Because Josh said a lot, and then he said a lot again, and again, and again.  He can't blame us for not analyzing every word.  But they got his face right, and they gave his arms some muscle tone.  And they let Mark be the crier in his cartoon, rather than Josh.  So Josh should just zip it and be happy for a change.

Right.  Like THAT will happen.


Kevin is The Mer-Man, and He's a Little Fishy.  Of course this refers to Kevin having to dress as a mermaid for an early season PoV competition.  Is this all they could come up with?  Why not make his comic a play on walking and talking in the (prison) yard?  Maybe he'll talk your ear off or something, with a bunch of guys writhing in pain after their ears fly off their skulls.

But they made Kevin a very handsome Mer-Man, at least.  I'm not sure that saying he's "a little fishy" is good for his game right now, but it is what it is, I guess.  It's certainly better than being a potty mouth or a lunatic, that's for sure.


Supposedly there were six different artists this season, working on these comics.


  1. I like to think The Potty Mouth is a shot at the way Paul has been talking shit about everyone all season. Love that he got checked like that. After his comic from last season - that he was so proud of - he's probably been dreaming for weeks about how EPIC this cover would be...not so much, but thanks for playing.

  2. Christmas has a camel toe in her comic. Id think that was the worst part of I were her.

  3. I must be the oldest person here, lol. Potty mouth meant swearing all the time. That's what I thought the comic is about.

    It was fun to see Paul upset over the comic, though it was on so long you'd think it was Josh.

    Ah, you mean I'm not a God in the house? Someone is finding fault with me? I thought I was the darling of the show & could do no wrong. Uh huh.
