Each week, host Julie Chen will answer a few questions about the latest events in the Big Brother house.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Once again, the pawn goes home. How would you critique Ramses’ game now that he has been voted out?
Ramses had no game. He was a sweet kid who is probably way too innocent and naive and kind to play the game and get his hands a little dirty. He’s just a nice social butterfly who didn’t know how to get in there and do some damage. Or how to save himself.

What do you make of Jessica’s move during the live show to tell the other houseguests that she and Cody are safe for a few weeks, which is stretching the truth a bit from the advantage she actually got? Smart move for her to do that, or not?
Loose lips sink ships. Information is power. I would NOT have said a word if I were Jessica. Why give away the fact you are holding an ace? I think her ego got in the way of her playing clearly. She was so hell bent on showing those who blindsided her that they did not get the best of her. Just emotional and not wise. That being said, it could be fun for her to see the others scramble to figure out what’s true, what’s false.

Paul wins Head of Household again and seems to have firm control over the majority of the house. If you were in that house playing the game, when would be the time to take him out? Because if this continues and he gets to the end, you have to figure he’s winning.
This past week was the week to take out Paul if you want to win the game. He’s poised now to take it to the end. What the heck was Jessica thinking this week? She should’ve used this opportunity to take him and only him out. Again, ego got in the way. She can’t stand Josh and how he likes to make fun of her and Cody, so her ego aimed for him. He’s no threat. He’s not great at competitions, he has no real friends in the house and no alliance. Why waste a week of power removing him? Foolish move.

Looking ahead, you just introduced the latest twist on the house, which is the Temptation Competition — where players can choose to compete and gain safety if they win, but automatically go on the block if they come in last place. Is that a risk worth taking, and how many folks do you think will take it?
Temptation Competition: If you’re Cody and Jessica isn’t HOH, you’d be a fool not to play the Temptation Competition. If you’re a low profile non-threat like Kevin, Matt, Raven, Mark, Elena, and Jason (and maybe now Christmas due to her injury), then you should not play.
