Welcome to my coverage of Big Brother 19!!! Big Brother has been a staple of my summer for a very long time. So this summer I will be covering the whole season with episode recaps and power rankings of the cast every Friday. I have seen only the cast bios and interviews with Jeff so this preseason ranking will be judged solely on that. This isn’t a ranking of who I like personally but who has the best chance to win.
If you’ve been seeing that Alex is a lot like Pow Pow from BB16, it’s pretty dead on. She doesn’t know the game and will probably get into a fight just like Pow Pow. It’s a long game and I don’t see her making the distance.
I really want him to succeed but if these rumors of someone getting evicted immediately then I’m worried about him. Even if those rumors are false, he seems like an easy target for the house to evict so let’s hope he “slashtags” survives. Actually, if he goes far, I hope we found out all of his own personal terms because from the taste I got in the interview then it will be a treat.
CHOO CHOO ALL BOARD ON THE TRAINWRECK EXPRESS CHOO CHOO!!!! On a pure entertainment level, I love Josh so much however, he’s going to be out so fast. He’s going a mile a minute but Big Brother is a marathon. Now I’ve never run a marathon before but even I know you can’t tire yourself out in the first leg. I’ll be very surprised if he lasts a month so good luck to him.
If Cody was a song, he would be “Walking Contradiction” by Green Day. I’m so complexed by him and he comes off like a little bit of a jerk. Maybe he can get some sympathy because of his daughter but sometimes that doesn’t work (cough Devon Bro cough). Also, anyone who says that they don’t lie in their life is obviously lying. Well, I’ll agree with Jeff and say Cody is definingly an interesting cat.
The only reason I hope Raven goes really far is that I want to make so many That’s So Raven jokes. I get a Bronte feel out of Raven and barely see her making to the jury.
Elena is someone who will probably go to jury house but might get out sooner if she’s on the wrong side of the numbers.
I got to admit ……. I like Whistlenut as a stage name, maybe it’s the immature sense of humor I have. Jason main goal isn’t to win but just to build his brand. Also, if anyone says they have a strategy but don’t want to share it because “they’re so much to share” is bs. That’s like saying to my professor “I really wanted to write my paper but there was so much stuff I wanted to write about.” However, his lack of the show can be beneficial if someone takes him as a number.
Although I personally enjoyed her interview with Jeff, I think Dominique type A personality might rub people the wrong way. Especially when you take the quote from her bio,” I’m not afraid to speak the truth, nor do I shy away from controversy” into consideration. Dominique will probably be in the early jury phrase but hopefully, I’m wrong and she can make it farther than that.
Jillian just seems nice and sweet … that’s it. Nothing really special but she’ll make the jury phrase.
He seems like a pretty chill dude that can get along with almost anyone. It appears he doesn’t have that much knowledge of the game but can probably learn pretty fast. Matthew might be targeted as a physical threat but he could wiggle his way out. Maybe he can get in an alliance with Mark and Christmas because of the fitness connection??
She says that there won’t be a showmance but I can see her getting into one and actually using that to her advantage. People in the house might solely judge on her looks but I think that’s a dangerous mistake. If she really does act like Janelle then everyone needs to watch out.
He falls into the “nerdy young superfan” trope which has worked out for two winners (Ian from BB14 and Steve from BB17) and sometimes it doesn’t (Ronnie from BB11). Cameron automatically gets some points for loving Rob Has a Podcast but cmon if you’re a superfan then you shouldn’t use the term “nerd herd”. As long as he gets past the first couple of weeks then I see him going far.
If she didn’t mention her laugh, I wouldn’t have noticed but God that’s all I hear. I did like her explanation of the experience she wants in the house. This isn’t some recruit who just wandered in but someone who knows this game and wants to win. Her strategy of trying to find a gym buddy can actually work in her faith with all of the fitness personalities we have in the house.
I know people are going to complain about the forced Christmas jokes we will probably get on the show but I’m a sucker for puns. As long as we don’t get into Mr. Freeze annoyance of puns level then I’m good. There are so many good things from her interview and the way she described herself as a honey badger that looks like a honey badger is promising. Especially learning that she was an Iraq contractor (not just once but twice), that makes Big Brother look like nothing.
Besides having my name (Mark’s gotta stick together), I really like Mark. He seems really nice which can charm a lot of people and pull out some comp wins. I predict a connection between Christmas and Mark due to their fitness connection. Might seem ridiculous but if someone shares the same passion as you then that can be really helpful. He was close to being my winner pick but people might target him because of his physical presence, especially if he wins comps.
I’m getting huge Andy from BB15 vibes out of him and that’s great. Andy had a fantastic social game with everyone in the house and pulled out some important comp wins. If Ramses is anything like Andy then people in the house should watch out because he might be the winner. The only recurring negative I’ve seen about him is that he’s younger than the other cast but I think Ramses will overcome it. Out of everyone in this cast, I feel the most confident to call him my winner pick so please don’t let me down Ramses!
