Julie Chen is back, of course, and she’s about to take us on our inaugural tour of the HGs summer abode (see the full tour gallery here). From there the HGs will arrive at the front of the studio to head inside and see who they’ll be facing off against for the half million dollars. Oh boy, oh boy!

First group was split with Tommy, Jack, Kathryn, and Nicole. Second half of the group was Jackson, Ovi, Holly, and Kemi.

Second group is split with Analyse, Isabella, David, and Cliff. That leaves Nick, Christie, Sam, and Jessica heading in to complete our Big Brother 21 cast.

As the cast settles in we hear from Tommy that he does, in fact, know Christie. Yeah, we knew that already. Christie dated Tommy’s aunt for many years. He wants to keep this connection quiet and worries about the fallout potential. (Supposedly, Christie was an alternate this season so it may have been an accidental connection. Dunno.)

New twist revealed. Since it’s Camp BB there has to be a Camp Director. HGs will vote to nominate someone to be the director and you can’t vote for yourself. The director is safe for the week gets a lot of power. HGs worry the impact of this role. Time to see who will step up to the plate and agree to take on this twist.

The ladies plus Tommy are rallying around Jessica to make her the camp director but Jackson is thinking he might want to take this on. Can Jackson pull the votes away from Jessica? Nicole and Isabella are starting to pull away. Wait, and here comes Christie to pile on too for supporting Jackson.

Camp Director Voting:

Vote came down to Jackson versus Jessica… Jackson wins!

Julie reveals the director, Jackson, will be safe for the week but has to select four HGs to “banish.” They will then enter the battle arena to fight for their Big Brother lives. Three will return. One will be eliminated. Yeah, I think we already know who lost! (Spoilers on that here.)

In the next episode, we’ll see this banishment nonsense and an Endurance HOH (won’t be on the Feeds since it happened last week). Get the spoilers on the first HOH of Big Brother 21!

Wednesday night will deliver the second episode of the season starting at 8/7c and then soon after that the Big Brother Feeds launch around 9PM PT. Grab your Free Trial now and be ready to watch!
