Tonight, Big Brother 19 had a rather stunning finale result with Josh winning this season over Paul; what did Elena Davies have to do with this outcome? Well, her vote was for Josh over Paul, and we do think that she is one of the swing votes that really determined that. Alex and Jason together went for Josh instead, and the same goes for Elena, Mark, and Cody. It’s crazy to think that Josh managed to win given where he was at the start of the show with some of these people that voted for him, but it happened.
For now, though, let’s just focus on Elena and what she had to say to Dr. Will Kirby tonight in the CBS backyard interviews. She made it clear first and foremost that she made the decision for the sake of the game, and at the same time admitted that it was rather difficult. After all, she and Paul were close in the game, so there may have been that temptation for her to go with him as the possible champion instead. You can agree or disagree with the move, but at least she owned it in the interview.
Beyond that, we also had a chance to see what Elena had to say about her future with Mark. At the start of the season, we saw that she was resistant to the idea of the showmance. However, over the course of the season he started to win her over, and in the jury house the pressure was off and as a result of that, she found a way to get to know him better. She figured out a way to learn more about him as a person in the house, and to go along with it, she also managed to understand more of her own feelings. We actually do like the idea of this showmance, at least since there is some sort of emotional understanding between the two of them. Also, we don’t think that America is going to harass either one of them all that much over it, mostly because of the fact that there is Matt and Raven still out there.
Ultimately, Elena is open to doing more shows seemingly (which makes sense since she came onto Big Brother to help her career in entertainment); had she made it a little bit further (and played a bit harder), maybe she’d be a lock to return. As of right now, it’s doubtful.
