19 Times Big Brother's Cody Tried to Emote, and Utterly, Completely Failed

<Insert death stare>

Barring a total blindside, Cody will be the third houseguest evicted from Big Brother 19 on Thursday night. Which means we'll be deprived of his dead-eyed, sociopathic stare.

You know what we're talking about: he looks like if Jim Caviezel went all Javier Bardem in No Country for Old Men. Or if Michael Phelps never wiped off his Olympic scowl. Cody is an emotionless, charisma-free droid who loves brushing his teeth and accusing people of making "victim noises." He has an unhealthy obsession with Alex, while being in a showmance with Jessica. He's an Air Force and Marine vet, so that explains the intensity, but you don't need to carry that all into the Big Brother house and on national TV. In fact, you shouldn't. It's freaky, unsettling, or as Gold Derby puts it: Is Cody Nickson Too Creepy to Win?

Here are 19 times Cody couldn't emote.

1. When he tried to smile but changed his mind

2. When he couldn't fake a conversation with Paul
