This has been an odd week in the Big Brother 21 house because with only two people voting, there as sure been a lot of flip-flopping on the vote.
When Nicole won the Power of Veto and removed Cliff from the block, they promised Jackson and Holly “no funny business.” So it was pretty clear they would honor their final four deal and vote Tommy out. But then Nicole quickly realized that this would be the perfect, and maybe only, time to break up the showmance of Holly and Jackson. Cliff was on board, also, but still pretended to struggle because he seems to always have the America’s Favorite Player idea going in the back of his mind. But it seemed pretty certain they would evict Holly. Tommy even offered to throw the HOH to one of them and then gun for the veto to evict Jackson.
So we got used to the idea that Holly would be going this week. But then on Wednesday night, Nicole started changing her mind after a Diary Room session. And Cliff sways with the wind, so he too started chaining his mind. Jackson then eavesdropped on Tommy, Nicole and Cliff and used what he heard later against Tommy. Jackson told Cliff and Nicole that Tommy is lying to them about throwing the HOH and targeting Jackson. And they believed Jackson because how else would Jackson know these details? I mean other than eavesdropping, which everyone knows he has done all season long.
Cut to this morning and Cliff and Nicole have confirmed that they are now leaning in the direction of keeping Holly. So it looked like we were ready to make our prediction and say Tommy is getting evicted. But then Cliff and Nicole talked with Tommy and he denied everything Jackson told them. So Nicole calls a house meeting to clear the air. Jackson is visibly upset, banging dishes and huffing and puffing. And then the feeds cut. And they stay down during what we can only imagine is a house meeting that we would have really loved to see.
It’s hard to say who is going at this point, but I have a feeling Nicole and Cliff have been swayed to keep Holly. Whether or not that’s the right decision, is up for debate, but I think we will be seeing Tommy walk out the door tonight. Of course things could change before the live show, and we may not even see the Live Feeds again before that.
We weren’t the only ones who first thought Holly would be heading home. Our readers were pretty sure it was Holly leaving tonight also. In our eviction prediction poll, Holly took over 76 precent of the vote. Do you still think she’s heading home tonight over Tommy?
