‘Big Brother 19’ Episode Guide (Aug. 6): Josh’s Nominees Revealed; Temptation Competition

“Big Brother” (08/06/17) – On Thursday’s live episode, Josh won his first Head of Household of the season, giving him safety for the entire week and with the power to nominate two fellow Houseguests. Will Josh go after Jessica and Cody, or does he have another target in mind?

Plus, members of the house will compete in an optional temptation competition with the winner giving themselves safety for the week, and the last placed loser automatically being the third nominee.

This season’s “Big Brother” twist is the “Summer of Temptation,” where the Houseguests will be challenged like never before as they embark on a season of tempting offers that could give them money, power and safety in the game. But, they will need to be careful, because for every temptation taken, there will be a consequence to face. This season’s house reflects the temptation twist with words like Money and Revenge hanging on the wall, constantly reminding the Houseguests that the game never stops.

“Big Brother” follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with 87 HD cameras and more than 100 microphones, recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week, someone will be voted out of the house, with the last remaining Houseguest receiving the grand prize of $500,000.

The remaining houseguests left in the house are as follows:

– Christmas Abbott (33), a fitness superstar currently residing in Lynchburg, VA
– Paul Abrahamian (24), a clothing designer currently residing in Tarzana, CA
– Matthew Clines (33), a renovating consultant currently residing in Arlington, VA
