Well, this sounds familiar. It’s more than likely Cody’s last night in the Big Brother 19 house, and it’s not going well for him.
Really, Alex seems very much desperate to extract every ounce of petty from her brain so that she can pour them all over Cody. She’s still mad about him eating all the cereal, and tonight she basically got angry at him for so long that he told her he was sorry probably just so that he could be left alone. That’s the sort of thing that we’ve seen him do before in the game, and it’s probably the same sort of thing that he’s going to be doing in jury house. He’s had flashes here and there of being social, but he realizes that there’s not that much that he can do to save himself. Nobody is listening, and Paul basically is making anyone who does speak with him into the worst person alive. They’ve done it with Kevin this week as well, and he’s now someone on the bottom of the numbers after looking super-secure for a good while.
As a matter of fact, Mark and Elena were of course attacked for spending time with him/reading the Bible with him tonight. It’s been a lot of rinse-and-repeat bashing, and there is an interesting dichotomy when it comes to TV show versus the live feeds in terms of enthusiasm. We know that there are plenty of people who can’t be bothered with this season at the moment because of recent gameplay, but the show’s been killing it lately in the numbers.
In the end, the only thing that we can say on that is that there are some things that we’ll never quite understand with the Big Brother universe. We are curious to see if things change based on some of what happens in the double eviction show.
What is psychologically so interesting about the show
Think of things this way: Put Cody into a very different season with a very different cast, and with that, have him in power for a good five or six weeks. Would he really be the favorite of many fans? This is one of the first times in recent memory that a super alpha-male personality has been popular, and we think it’s largely a product of circumstance much in the way that Paul’s popularity was last year or Nicole’s was back in season 16. There are few personalities that we consider to be completely immune to where they are in the game or who they are playing with — think in terms of a Johnny Mac or a Dani Donato. The majority of people are loved/hated based on what happened to him in the game.
Do you agree with this assessment on Cody, and what do you think is going to happen on Thursday’s show? Let us know in the comments!
