'Big Brother 19': Fifth Juror Reveals How Eviction Will Impact His Finale Vote
Big Brother season 19 may see a bitter jury come finale night on Sept. 20.
Although it looks like front-runner Paul Abrahamian is going to win the $500,000 prize, it still comes down to whether or not his fellow houseguests agree with expectations. Abrahamian has arguably played the best game this season, but will his actions impact his chances?
If Paul does lose the game after making it to the final two that will make him the first ever Big Brother two-time runner-up.
The latest victim of Paul's game play, Jason Dent, reveals to The Hollywood Reporter, who he wants to see at the end and why he thinks America is currently rooting for houseguest Kevin Schlehuber.
Do you see the events that happened Thursday night impacting your vote as a juror at all? Why or why not?
Yes, it'll definitely impact my jury vote. There's no clear reason why Paul and Alex would go against the final deal.I put most of the jury members on the block or in there. It offsets the fact they were assholes to half of them. I don't understand their need to bust our alliance. If it's Paul or Alex up there... unless it's the pair of them together, I'll have to do some thinking, but if it's them and anyone else, anyone else will win in my book.
Did you ever plan on targeting Paul in the game? Explain.
In the beginning. The first month. Even the first 44 days... days 44-51 I was on the fence, I was asking Alex which way we should go. That's where I went wrong, letting Alex decide that Paul was the safe bet. Paul's entire name is built on not being a fake person, but it took me a long time to buy into it. But when I did and we shook on the finale three deal, it was done for me then. I wish I had a crappy character and could have pretended that never happened and turned on him.
Which houseguests this season do you think are well liked by America? Why?
I think Kevin, I don't know how you couldn't like Kevin. He didn't cause any trouble and he's super funny. He's not that good of a competitor, but he's pretty funny. I'd like to think I was liked. I was a good competitor, I did the best I could with what I had. Ramses was a character, I didn't like the guy because he was so sneaky, but I think he's someone people could connect with because he was funny.
Who would you like to see in the final two and who don't you want to see?
That's tough right now because I would have said Paul and Alex, but since they put me here, I don't want to see them. They are the best game players, bar none, but they could have gotten there without blindsiding me, so that wasn't good. Now I want to see Kevin and Christmas.
