Why Matt Should Be Ejected from the 'Big Brother 19' House

For a long time on Big Brother 19, the house's serial cereal eater, Matt, has been a boring but harmless presence. Matt's never bothered to play the game nor has he really participated in the melodrama. Matt has just been kind of there. In recent days, Matt has crossed a line. Due to his willful and repeated rule violations, Matt should be removed from the Big Brother house -- not just evicted, but pulled from the game entirely.

The Sins of a Cereal Eater

As was previously reported,  Matt is trying to purposely be evicted from the Big Brother 19 house. After the Power of Veto competition, Matt and his girlfriend Raven were left on the block for eviction night. Matt wants to make sure he goes home so he's breaking as many rules as he can to receive penalty votes, and so far he has received one. 

Matt hasn't slowed down at all after receiving that penalty vote. He continues to do things he is forbidden to do as a Have-Not. Matt has taken hot showers, he's eaten food that's not slop and he's slept in the same bed as Raven. 

In other words, Matt should be ousted by production and Jason will have to name a replacement nominee. The biggest consequence of all, though, is that Matt shouldn't be allowed to go to the jury house. It will be as if he never existed in the game, which, to be fair, was already the case. Either another Battle Back could happen and / or Big Brother could give America Matt's vote to avoid a tie at the end. 

What's Happened Before, Will Should Happen Again

This is what should happen because it's what has happened in the past. Big Brother has ejected multiple contestants from the game but one of the most notorious cases was Chima Simone from Big Brother 11. When Chima came out on the wrong side of a twist, she completely shut down from the game. Chima loudly ignored production's requests and repeatedly disobeyed the rules, just like Matt. It all culminated with her throwing her mic pack in the pool (after refusing to wear it). 

Interestingly, Chima was the eighth HG to leave the Big Brother house (which is what Matt is aiming to make happen) but she didn't go to jury. Since Chima was removed from the game by production, her vote was instead given to America and they voted for the eventual winner, Jordan Lloyd

Matt hasn't done anything as violent or potentially costly as throwing away a mic pack but Chima was already on thin ice before that happened. It was the final straw, not necessarily her removable offense. Matt has been warned by production, using the voice of Big Brother, to stop breaking the rules and he has made it clear he won't be slowing down any time soon. Raven has even taking to praising Matt for being her "little rebel." 

Matt's not a rebel. He's a coward and disgrace to the game. Cody was widely criticized for his behavior inside the house, but he still stuck to the rules. Cody played the game, even if he didn't do it particularly well. Matt isn't playing the game and by ignoring the rules, he's not only disrespecting the show but all the other evicted houseguests before him. 

By removing Matt there would also be a chance to really shake up the game. If a jury Battle Back happens, the game could completely shift for the ending and everyone would have to scramble. As things stand now it seems like Paul will easily walk away with the prize. Even if a Battle Back doesn't happen, Matt needs more of a punishment than a penalty vote because letting his behavior slide implies that the rules of Big Brother are little more than loosely enforced guidelines. 

Big Brother 19 airs Wednesdays at 8/7c, Thursdays at 9/8c and Sundays at 8/7c on CBS.
