"#Big Brother 19" fans saw #Josh Martinez take control of the house last night by winning Head of Household. Being a solid member of Team #Paul, there was some serious celebrating going on from the majority of the house, with a few knowing they could be in for a rough week.

The following will contain "Big Brother 19" spoilers. Don't continue to read if you don't want to know what may make the editorial cut for the show.

Right after the win last night, Paul Abrahamian pulled Josh aside. He wanted to make sure from the start that they were on the same page, and the two agreed to nominate Jessica and Cody for eviction. As always, in the game of "Big Brother," expect the unexpected.

Josh tells Christmas what he is thinking

Josh and Christmas Abbott sat down for a talk this morning. Josh swore her to secrecy as he told her his thoughts on the coming eviction. He wants to nominate Jessica and Cody, as he agreed but wants to backdoor Elena [VIDEO]. He has watched her switch loyalties too often in the game and no longer trusts her. With Elena having actively tried to get Josh evicted in the past, Josh should be leery.

Christmas listened as he explained his thought process that led to this decision. She advised Josh to try to talk to Jessica before the nominations and explain that he is trying to give her and Cody what they want. If they survive this week's eviction, they will be going to the Jury House rather than home. They have said repeatedly that they want to spend the summer together.

Josh still plans to put up Jessica and Cody. If one of them is able to win the Power of Veto, Elena will be the replacement nominee. Christmas pointed out to Josh that he has to be cautious and make sure the votes are there to evict Elena if she does end up on the block. Josh hasn't forgotten that Cody is a loose cannon in the "Big Brother 19" house. He knows that physically he is a strong competitor as well.

Potential problems as a result

Things Josh may not have thought through start with what a move like this would do to his game. When Cody went for a target his team wasn't expecting (Paul in week 2), it blew his alliance apart. He was seen as going rogue, and not one to be trusted to work with. Could Josh be risking the same, especially after the way his game began this season? Next, Cody and Jessica are both stronger players than Elena. They have each won competitions while Elena has relied on others to keep her safe.

Josh has some big decisions this week. He can use his HOH to further his own agenda and deal with the fallout, or he can follow Paul's instructions and go after the bigger threat in the "Big Brother 19" house.
