It was Eviction Eve inside the Big Brother 21 house and with that came Cliff’s final pitch to Jackson on why he should stay over Holly. He started the conversation off with telling Jackson that he really wants to walk out of here shaking Jackson’s hand, but he is a fighter and needs to try everything he can to stay. Jackson tells him that he wouldn’t expect anything less from Cliff Hogg III.
Cliff tells him he had a few points he wants to touch on and the first one was that Jackson always talked about wanting to see fighters in the end and he wants to know what has changed that. Jackson tells him that last week changed everything because he realized that Nicole was Cliff’s number one priority and Holly has never gone against Holly no matter if the moves he was trying to make were good for her game or not. Jackson tells him that if Holly wasn’t forced to throw the HOH to Nicole then Nicole would be in this position. Cliff talks about how Jackson banished him, voted him out, Cliff turned down four weeks of safety with Jack, and still wanted to work with Jackson.
Cliff at one point asked Jackson if Holly was his No. 1 and Jackson tells him that she always has been. Which makes Cliff wonder why there were so many conversations about Jackson, Cliff, and Nicole going to F3. Jackson tells him that if everything went to plan and they went into F4 without what happened last week, they would have been able to fight it out fairly this week. However, Holly was forced to promise to throw the HOH and that changed how everything happened this week.
Cliff tells Jackson that if Holly stays then maybe Jackson makes it to F2, or maybe he doesn’t. Cliff promises that if he keeps him this week, he can guarantee him a F2 seat. Talks then turned to Cliff asking Jackson if he was leaning towards keeping Holly this week and Jackson confirms that he is. Cliff then starts talking about how if he and Holly are looking really good for keeping their deals, but Jackson isn’t. Jackson goes back to last week when he realized that Tommy might stay over Holly, that changed everything. Cliff reminds Jackson that it was Nicole’s doing and Jackson tells him that he knows that but unfortunately, Nicole isn’t the one on the block.
Cliff then touches on Jury votes and asks Jackson if he has thought about Jury votes yet? Jackson says that he has. Cliff tells him that if he goes to Jury this week and Jackson is sitting next to Nicole in F2, Nicole gets his vote. He also tells Jackson that if he is sitting next to Holly in F2, Holly gets his vote and might also get Nicole’s vote. He mentions that if he sends Holly to Jury this week, she could advocate for Jackson in the Jury house and make it easier for Jackson to win if he is sitting next to Nicole or Cliff in F2.
When Cliff leaves the room, Jackson is clearly upset about what Cliff just said to him about the Jury votes. Jackson says to the cameras, “Are you f*cking kidding me? Are you f*cking kidding me? You’re going to threaten me with f*cking Jury votes? So by doing what’s best for my game, I’m going to lose two votes and everyone elses? Ok, sick, appreciate it, Cliff. Thanks for making my job a whole lot easier.” Jackson later confirmed to Nicole and Holly that Cliff’s talk about the Jury votes is what sealed Cliff’s fate and will send him out of the door this week. He mentions that he won’t be bullied into a corner by Cliff.
However, Jackson was feeling pretty paranoid about the votes after this conversation. Told Holly that he might actually save her with the POV tonight so that she has to vote him out, but he doesn’t want to look like a coward. Do you think that there is any shot that Jackson will change his mind and stick with Cliff in fear that he would lose $500k for breaking another deal? Or will Jackson take his chances and stick to evicting Cliff tonight?
