The day started off early for the Big Brother 21 houseguests as they woke up to pay tribute to thousands of the men, women, and children that lost their lives 18 years ago on 9/11/2001. A little later on, there was some talk about which way Nicole and Cliff were leaning with their vote that lead to a lot of tears from Holly.

Cliff tells her it shouldn’t be about gender. Talks turn to what each nom might try and offer in their campaigns.

1:00 PM BBT – Nicole and Tommy are talking about her conversation with Holly the night before.

She also told Tommy that she told Holly her and Cliff would be on the same page when it comes time to vote.
1:15 PM BBT – Nicole, Tommy, and Holly are talking about transitioning into the real world after the show. Holly talks about how she has had to suppress so many emotions and when she gets out there won’t be a reason to do that. She says that a week before she came to Big Brother, her best friend was diagnosed and feeds switch to Jackson and Cliff playing chess.
3:45 PM BBT – Cliff and Nicole talk about who to keep this week some more. Cliff says the one thing that worries him is if Tommy and Jackson have some kind of agreement to protect each other if Holly goes home. Nicole says that doesn’t scare her as much as keeping the showmance.
3:47 PM BBT – Cliff says he’s playing devil’s advocate and says if they keep Tommy they have to strong people playing for veto (Jackson and Tommy), whereas if Tommy goes, it’s Jackson and Holly.
3:50 PM BBT – Nicole tells Cliff that Tommy swears he will gun for the veto and evict Jackson. Cliff says he’s no longer even basing this on any kind of agreement they had with Holly and Jackson. He says now they’re at the point where they just have to do what is best for their game.
6:53 PM BBT – Tommy tells Cliff and Nicole that he loves them and wants to stay and go after Jackson for the three of them. He again says he will throw the HOH as a way to show them that he does trust them.

Tommy says he told Jackson and Holly the secret already because they were trashing Christie so hard that it was hard for him to hear.

4:12 PM BBT – Nicole tells Tommy that she’s surprised Christie kept that secret since she wasn’t great at keeping secrets in the house.

4:25 PM BBT – Holly says Nicole and Cliff are being weird toward her and Tommy and Nicole are acting like best friends.
4:30 PM BBT – Holly says it will look so bad on Nicole and Cliff if they flip. Holly says they aren’t even hiding it that they’re considering it.

4:57 PM BBT – Holly and Cliff discuss how hypocritical it was of Tommy and Christie wanting Kat and Holly out because they know each other.
5:00 PM BBT – Jackson tells Nicole and Holly that hearing that Christie and Tommy know each other just makes him think Christie is a definite vote for Tommy in jury. He says she would probably campaign for him in the jury house too.
5:13 PM BBT – Nicole and Cliff decide Tommy’s news wasn’t that big a deal and that they know if they get to final 3 they have to win and take the other anyway. They aren’t worried about Tommy knowing Christie.
5:25 PM BBT – Cliff and Nicole tell Jackson they haven’t made a decision on the vote yet. Jackson hints that if they vote Holly out it won’t matter to him (He’s kind of letting them know he’s OK with it, but when he’s with Holly he acts like he’s upset).
5:43 PM BBT – Jackson and Cliff talk about how Tommy staying is better for Nicole’s game but not theirs. Jackson says he would hate to see Holly go and says keeping Tommy really does scare him.

7:54 PM BBT – Holly says it wasn’t cool how emotionless Nicole was during their talk. Holly is upset that they shook hands and now she’s backtracking.
7:58 PM BBT – Nicole tells Cliff that it’s either they go to Final 4 with Jackson and Holly and find out who gets to take the first shot, or they take the first shot now while they have the control.
8:04 PM BBT – Holly says the only reason she wanted to work with Cliff and Nicole was because she thought they were honest players. Jackson tells Holly he is furious that Cliff and Nicole are even considering breaking their deal. Then he says he’s not even mad, he’s disappointed.
8:05 PM BBT – Cliff lets Nicole know that Holly thinks Nicole is the one leaning toward keeping Tommy and Cliff is leaning toward keeping Holly. Nicole says she doesn’t blame him for playing the game.

11:45 PM BBT – Holly, Jackson, and Tommy are hanging out talking about life after Big Brother and what they look forward to doing.

1:00 AM BBT – Nicole and Cliff have gone back downstairs so Holly leaves the HOH room and goes to make another pitch. She’s again saying her game is separate from Jackson. Holly points out Christie and Tommy betrayed their group and that’s what went wrong on that side.

1:45 AM BBT – Cliff and Nicole are worrying that Tommy is sketchy and can’t be trusted.
