Big Brother 21 Endgame: The Road To Finale [Analysis]

It’s been a long and weird season of Big Brother 21, but we are finally down to the wire. As we saw on Thursday night’s episode, Tommy was sent off to jury, leaving us with our Big Brother 2019 final four: Nicole, Cliff, Jackson and Holly.

Spoiler alert! And if you didn’t tune into the 45 seconds of the Head of Household competition, then you might have missed the news that Nicole won the “epic battle of endurance.” That competition lasted only several minutes as Cliff quickly dropped and then Holly bailed, sticking to a deal that was apparently made before the live episode. So Nicole is the first official member of the final 3.

And as we all know, the Power of Veto is the most important thing at this point, so let’s take a look at some scenarios.

If Nicole or Cliff Win Veto

First, let’s just go ahead and say Nicole will nominate Jackson and Holly. So if she or Cliff win veto, then Cliff will be deciding who makes it to final 3 with himself and Nicole. And we already heard that plan on Thursday night. Cliff and Jackson struck a deal and Cliff will evict Holly over Jackson. This makes no sense to me, but Cliff swears by it and for some reason, he thinks Jackson will take him to Final 2. And maybe he will. Very little this season has made any sense.

So this would leave a Nicole, Cliff, Jackson final 3. If Nicole wins Final HOH, she’s cutting Jackson. If Cliff wins Final HOH, he should remain a man of his word and cut Jackson, but he’s been alluding to Jackson he will take him. If Jackson wins Final HOH, I think he cuts Nicole. I know a lot of people don’t think this, but this is just something I believe. I think Jackson would be better off taking Nicole, but I truly don’t think he will.

That means my prediction for this outcome is a Jackson/Cliff Final 2. And that makes me cringe. (This is because I think Jackson wins the Final HOH. If Nicole wins Final HOH, she and Cliff are final 2).

If Jackson Wins Veto

Apparently, the deal Jackson made with Cliff goes both ways. Jackson is supposed to evict Holly. I know he’s been saying all along that he came in alone and he is playing alone, but will he really scumbag Holly like that after worrying about his image all season? Cutting your shomance at Final 3 is a pretty douchey move and he hated with Zingbot called him a douche. I look for Jackson to not honor that deal after what Cliff and Nicole almost did this week. Of course Cliff is throwing Nicole under the bus as I write this by telling Jackson that Nicole was really hard to convince to keep Holly this week.

So this would leave a Nicole, Jackson, Holly Final 3. If that’s what happens, I think Nicole cuts Jackson if she wins Final HOH. And vice versa. If Holly wins Final HOH, she cuts Nicole.

That means my prediction for this outcome is a Jackson/Holly Final 2.

If Holly Wins Veto

I’m not sure if there was some absurd deal where Holly would evict Jackson over Cliff, but I don’t think that would happen even if there was one. I think this is the most obvious scenario. If Holly wins veto, she will evict Cliff.

So this would leave a Nicole, Holly, Jackson final 3 also. So, the above scenario is exactly the same.

Who Goes to Final 2?

Since it might be confusing to sort it out in the above posts, let me repeat it here who I think wold take who to final 2.

  • Who does Nicole take: Cliff (100 precent)
  • Who does Cliff take: Nicole (I think)
  • Who does Jackson take: Cliff (if Holly is gone)
  • Who does Holly take: Jackson (100 percent)

What I’m saying is, keeping Jackson is really bad for Nicole and Cliff’s game. I can’t believe they’re planning on doing that if Cliff wins Veto. I could be wrong, and I hope I am, but with that move, I don’t see any scenario where Cliff and Nicole make final 2 together. The reason being, I see Jackson winning Part 1 and Part 3 of the final HOH in all scenarios. Maybe I’m wrong, and maybe Nicole will win Part 3 and evict Jackson. Or maybe I’m even wrong about Jackson taking Cliff over Nicole. Maybe Jackson will take Nicole, but I’m not so sure.

What do you think will happen with the Big Brother 2019 final 3 and finale? Who are you rooting for?
