After 19 seasons of Big Brother, you’d think we’ve seen it all by now: bad decisions, hidden alliances, way too many showmances. But this season, Big Brother 19 has blown our minds time and time again. First, Paul Abrahamian returns from Big Brother 18, the season where he lost to Nicole “The Snake” Franzel. OK, it wasn’t surprising, but bringing back a veteran again? Really? Are we done yet? And don’t even get me started on Josh Martinez and his erratic pots-and-pans-banging, “meatball”-insult-slinging self.
But it isn’t just the players who are questionable. The editing of each show and what producers have chosen to show America has really gotten Twitter (and Reddit) talking. After you see the following list of moments you didn’t see on the show, your opinion about the players (and who you’re rooting for) might just change.
1. Who really stole the cat ears?
raven literally hid the cat ears, is proud of being paul's minion and plays the victim in every situation i am TIRED #bb19

During that explosive fight in the kitchen between Jessica Graf, Raven Walton and Alex Ow, Alex brings up those dang cat ears. She truly believes Jess stole them, but really? It was Raven.
2. Questioning Cody Nickson’s military service
So Big Brother decided not to show Paul, Alex, and Christmas mocking Cody's service as a marine? Cowards. Expose this trash. #BB19

But that’s not all that happened during that fight. Paul, Alex and Christmas Abbott (Christmas!) went as far as to question and mock Cody’s military experience. Really?
3. The entire edit of the fight

But that’s not it! You only saw a sliver of what actually went down during that fight. You didn’t see: the high-five Paul gives Raven or Raven’s sailor mouth, which is basically just Raven being disgusting.
4. Kevin Schlehuber is a liar & a genius

5. Raven has a disease!

Raven has a life-threatening disease that affects her GI tract, but she eats… The. Most. Junk. Food. Ever.
6. Cody has auditioned before
Cody tells some of the houseguests that he auditioned for BB15… Could you imagine? Would have probably been infinitely better than this Paul vs. Cody storyline that won’t die.
7. Elena Davies in the diary room

Welp, not sure how this one got out, but hey, this is what really goes down in the diary room. (But y’all knew this already, right?)
8. Raven’s accent
Live feed viewers have noticed something fishy about Raven: her accent. Does she have one? Does she fake it? Either way, it’s been discussed enough that someone created the nifty chart above.
Christmas- Her (Raven's) accent is very circumstantial. Kevin- it's a convenient accent #BB19

9. The, um, butt poking?
So, apparently, Jess (and the rest of the house, really) have been, uh, poking one another’s rear ends. Alex got emotional about it and didn’t appreciate it one bit.
10. Kevin & Christmas: Cuddle buddies
Christmas asking Kevin if they can cuddle while he gives her a massage. He says "of course". 🤔 #BB19

So, he’s married, and she’s flirty. Acceptable or not?
11. Paul’s “black face” comment
You probably know about this one by now, but if not, here’s what happened: When Dominique Cooper was still in the house, Paul was seen debating whether he should wear a black mask (what he described as a “black face”) and a snake-print romper (which he did do) in an effort to mock Dom, who called him a “snake.” If you’re still rooting for Paul, I don’t know what say.
