Big Brother 21 Punishments: The Poison Ivy Punishment Explained

As we all saw on last night’s episode of Big Brother 21, Tommy and Christie drew chips in this week’s HOH comp giving them the Poison Ivy Punishment. We also got a rundown of what this punishment entails and I have some additional information and photos of Tommy and Christie as they went into phase two of this punishment yesterday on the Big Brother live feeds!

Phase one of this punishment involved Christie and Tommy wearing bright green swimsuits and being covered in red blotches that are supposed to look like poison ivy covering their entire body. When they came out of the DR and showed off their new look, it was explained that they had to be quarantined inside the Big Brother house and couldn’t go outside. Tommy added that the best part of this is that they can’t shower for four days either while their poison ivy clears up.

Phase two of this punishment happened yesterday on the Big Brother live feeds. At 2:50 PM BBT, Tommy and Christie both came out of the DR completely covered in pink airbrush paint that is supposed to be calamine lotion and told the HGs that this was their BB Poison Ivy Treatment. Tommy and Christie flaunted their new look and when Tommy went to explain a new rule associated with this new phase, the feeds went down. My guess is we will find out the details a little later this week, but it sounded like the only thing they couldn’t do in addition to going outside or showering, was they couldn’t do anything that would rub off the “calamine lotion.”

Here are some photos from last night’s episode of Big Brother and yesterday’s Big Brother live feeds of Tommy and Christie’s punishment costume!
