Big Brother 21 is slowly starting to wind down as this week the Final 7 will become the Final 5 after a double eviction set for Thursday. Right now we know how everything from the first round will play out, barring any late vote flips. So let’s take a look at everything that has gone down during Week 10 so far, including some spoilers.
Head of Household
As we saw on Sunday night’s episode, Jackson was forced to win HOH when Cliff and Nicole couldn’t pull it off. He didn’t want to win, but when it came down to himself and Tommy, he knew he had to do it to protect Cliff and Nicole.
And since Jackson didn’t want to actually win HOH, he decided to still not pick a side and decided to target Jessica. He nominated Christie as a pawn and Jessica as his target. Jessica seems like a wasted nomination to us, but he did that so he could keep working with Cliff/Nicole and Tommy/Christie separately.
Power of Veto
Tommy pulled out the win this week when the houseguests played Hide and Go Veto. Cliff is perplexed as to why Jackson found his veto when he told him beforehand where he would hide it. Suspicions that Jackson and Holly are covering all their bases are finally surfacing. Holly and Jackson might not be as safe as they think heading into that double eviction.
At the nomination ceremony Tommy used the veto on Christie. Jackson’s replacement nominee was Cliff. Jackson sill plans on Jessica being the target, and as long as he has Nicole’s and Holly’s votes, that’s what will happen. He would break a tie in Cliff’s favor to send Jessica off to jury.
So it seems like Jackson is wasting his second HOH on a non-threat, but I do kind of understand the method to his madness. He thinks Jessica is the safe bet this week so that he can let Christie and Tommy and Cliff and Nicole battle it out while he and Holly relax in the middle. But that’s a risky move and one that probably won’t work.
