Thanks to the sleuthing of the Big Brother fan community, we have some proof that new houseguests Tommy Bracco and Christie Murphy know each other. Christie is tagged in one of Tommy’s Instagram posts from 2015 that says “LOVE MY FAMILY MORE THAN ANYTHING.” Other Big Brother fans have said they’re also Facebook friends.
Could this mean we are in for some kind of casting twist for Big Brother 21? The speculations are already flying. Could it be secret duos? Enemies? Exes? Or could it just be a coincidence? Both are from Staten Island, N.Y., so add that to the list of coincidences.
Hamsterwatch on Twitter says she was informed that Christie used to date Tommy’s aunt. So there’s definitely a connection, but whether or not it is a part of the game is yet to be seen. At the very least they’re going to recognize each other in the house and how they handle that could be detrimental to their games. People in the BB house get paranoid and if they think they know each other too well, that could go very badly.
apparently Christie dated (past tense) Tommy’s aunt

We are currently checking out any other possible connections just to see if we can figure this out (or at the very least ramp up your suspicions – you know you love it!). The other possible connections at the moment are Jackson Michie and Ovi Kabir, Holly Allen and Kathryn Dunn, and Isabella Wang and Jack Matthews. Ovi and Jackson are from Tennessee and went to the same university. As for Holly and Kathryn, both participated in the Miss USA pageant system, are close in age and are rumored to know each other. During the Jeff interviews Isabella and Jack both mentioned climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. Isabella even said she did so with her ex.
What do you think? Do you think there’s a Big Brother 21 casting twist going on or is this really just a few cases of small world? I think it would be fun to have a good casting twist. We haven’t had one in a while aside from the little ones like Alex and Morgan in BBOTT and the return of the twin twist in Big Brother 17.
