Big Brother 21 — About Tonight

by Lisa Marie Bowman on August 8, 2019

Hi, y’all!

So, obviously, if you haven’t seen tonight eviction episode, this post is going to be full of spoilers about who went to the jury house and who became the new HoH. So, if you’re trying to avoid spoilers, stop reading right now!

Okay?

Okay.

So, here’s the thing with Big Brother. Sometime, you have to take the good with the bad. To absolutely no one’s surprise, Jack was voted out tonight. The only thing surprising about the vote is that 1) Tommy voted to evict Jack and 2) Julie actually called out Jack on some of the comments that he made inside the House about Kemi and Bella. (Of course, Julie then proceeded to tell Jack that he would not “be gypped out of seeing his goodbye messages,” which kinda ruined the entire moment since gyp is, historically, a derogatory term for the Romani people.)

I have to say that I was really shocked by Tommy’s vote. In fact, when I heard it, I assumed that he must have said “Jackson.” It was only when Julie totaled up the votes and I checked on Facebook that I saw that Tommy had actually voted to evict Jack. (Only Christie and Analyse voted to keep Jack.) After spending the week saying that he would vote to keep Jack, Tommy decided to go with the majority. In other words, Tommy has no spine and I’m surprised he can handle wearing that big helmet when he doesn’t have any backbone.

Tommy’s lack of a spine is going to make this upcoming week interesting because Tommy is …. the new HoH!

That’s right, Tommy finally won a comp and it was the big one. Admittedly, it wasn’t much of a comp. The houseguests had to sit in a canoe and go across a slide. I imagine Tommy won because he weighed less than the bigger houseguests but he still weighed just enough to keep his canoe steady. (Nicole and Holly, for instance, both struggled to control their canoes.) It was really pretty much a random victory but it was still a victory nonetheless.

Tommy being HoH probably means that Christie is essentially going to be HoH. In theory, that should be bad news for Kat, Nicole, Jessica, and Cliff. It wouldn’t surprise me to see Tommy put any of them on the block. However, with the field trip coming up, there’s going to be a third nominee. Just judging from what people are saying online, it sounds like Christie’s getting a lot of the votes so it’s easy to imagine a situation where Christie ends up getting nominated and going home on Tommy’s HoH.

As for now, Jack is the first member of our jury. Julie didn’t say anything about there being another battleback so Jack may be out of the house permanently.

Anyway, Tommy should be making his nominations tomorrow. We’ll see what happens!
