Big Brother Jedis harness the force of chaos

If you’re as sick of the corny puns as I am, I have good news — Christmas is no longer the gift that keeps on giving. It’s Cody! Last week, the Big Brother house had a nasty case of the warts. At first glance, it looked like those nasties hopped out the door with V-Toad Cody, but it turns out Cody spread a virus when he told Paul that Mark and Dominique knew about Cody’s plan to backdoor the vet. The name of that virus is paranoia, my friends, and on Big Brother it spreads faster than whooping cough at a boarding school. More on paranoia and chaos later. 3, 2, 1, blast off!
The houseguests launch into an HoH competition that’s intergalactic mayhem as space cadets cling to a wall while they’re aggressively pelted by gak reminiscent of Nickelodeon’s ’90s favorite, Double Dare. The whimsy of slime aside, this whole business of winning the competition gets heavy real quickly. Jessica invokes the memory of Cody like he’s a dead relative who’s an angel on her shoulder to help her overcome the pain, and Alex says more prayers than I’ve heard at most Catholic funerals. Now I’m curious — does God watch the live feeds?
Apparently he does, because Alex wins, edging out Elena, but not before making a deal that she won’t come after Elena’s people (Mark, Paul, Raven, Matt, and Dominique). Alex snags her HoH key as the houseguests return from the backyard and compares Big Brother to the Hunger Games. She isn’t wrong. Chaos is about to ensue. “May the odds be ever in your favor.” Read on here: http://ew.com/recap/big-brother-season-19-episode-9/
