Josh Martinez would win Big Brother if pre-jury evictees Jillian Parker and Dominique Cooper were voting in the live finale of Season 19.

Big Brother's jury consists of Cody Nickson, Alex Ow, Raven Walton, Matt Clines, Jason Dent, Elena Davies, Mark Jansen, and Kevin Schlehuber.

This group will vote to determine whether Josh, Paul Abrahamian or Christmas Abbott should be crowned champion depending on which two players make it to the end on the September 20 finale, but according to a couple of early evictees, Josh is the houseguest most deserving of the $500,000 grand prize.

"Josh surprised me because everybody wanted him out Week 1, and look at him now!... Josh has my vote to win!" Jillian, a 24-year-old timeshare sales representative from Florida who currently resides in Las Vegas, NV, told The Hollywood Reporter.

"He's not the brightest crayon in the box, but he made it! Christmas didn't do anything. Paul thinks he's entitled to win. He played everyone and the jury is salty... Judging by the jury's reactions to [Paul], they were not happy."

Josh became known for banging pots and pans in people's faces while yelling insults at them, and some viewers at home went as far as to call him a bully.

But Paul also received heat for treating some of the players poorly in the game, such as Cody and Jessica Graf. The returning player was also arguably the one who had orchestrated most of the blindsides and betrayals this season, such as Jason Dent and Alex Ow's departures.

"Josh has my vote to win the game. I'm pro-underdog," Dominique told The Reporter.

"I saw how people treated him at the beginning and he has a really good heart. With the exception of the pots and pans, I don't think he played a bad game... Paul is not going to win! I don't even want him to have the luxury of sitting in those Final 2 chairs." 


The 30-year-old government engineer from Alabama who currently resides in Woodbridge, VA, added that while the house perceived Josh as "annoying," he was actually "so strategic."

"Before I left I said, 'Josh, use what people have labeled you as to work for you in your game.' He used that, and look where he is today," Dominique noted.

The jury may be a split vote, however, because early evictees Jessica, Cameron Heard and Ramses Soto all believe Paul should win the game, hands down.

"[Paul] knows he's the villain this season. I think he's trying to change his image, and you saw that in the last few episodes where he's crying. He's just putting on a show because he's trying to save his reputation. He knows it's in danger right now," Jessica explained to The Reporter.


"If you're starting to feel bad for Paul, then you're just being one of his puppets, like they are in the house. The Paul you've seen this season is exactly who Paul is... [But] I would give Paul my vote. Paul played the best game... Nobody else deserves it. I'm rolling my eyes having to say it."
