It’s Week 9 in the Big Brother 21 house and the numbers are starting to dwindle. One more HG will go this week, and it’s seemingly already pretty clear who that will be. Let’s take a look at all the events so far this week, including some spoilers you might not be aware of.
Head of Household
As we all saw on Thursday’s episode, Holly rolled a perfect score to become the new Head of Household. This is Holly’s second turn at HOH and the first repeat HOH of the season.
We also saw that America went with Nick as the Prankster. This was surprising to some people because Nick doesn’t get a lot of airtime, but Live Feeders see a lot of Nick and it looks like voters really wanted him to win so he could nominate Christie. But that was Holly’s plan anyway, so this was yet another pointless twist.
On Sunday night we saw Holly go after Nick as her nominee and Nick, as the Prankster, did what America wanted and put Christie next to himself on the block. As of then, no one in the house knew he was the Prankster, but everyone knows now.
Power of Veto
What we won’t see until Wednesday night’s episode is that Jackson won the Power of Veto this week. Zingbot also stopped by for some zings that are still stinging the contestants (they’re really bothered by them this season). Jackson and Holly hold all the power this week and are proving to be a powerful pair in the game.
UPDATE: As expected, Jackson did not use the Power of Veto. Christie or Nick will be evicted.
A little later today, the HGs will gather for the veto ceremony. Jackson’s plan is to not use the power of veto. Nick has been putting in some work, trying to get Jackson to use it, but it looks like the final nominees for the week will be Nick and Christie.
As of now, Nick is the target this week. As we saw last week, things can change quickly. But Tommy, Cliff and Jessica have all vowed to keep Christie, and if Nicole wants to honor a deal that she and Cliff have looming with Holly and Jackson, she will probably vote with them as well.
