Big Brother 21 — About Tonight

by Lisa Marie Bowman on August 22, 2019

I’m just as shocked as anyone.

Seriously, anyone who watched the live feeds from Friday morning to Wednesday afternoon would have been totally justified in believing that Christie was going home. Jackson couldn’t stop talking about how much he was looking forward to getting rid of her. Everyone was agreeing that she had to go. As opposed to the way it was edited to look on Thursday’s show, her attempt to blow up Nick’s game on Tuesday was actually a huge mess that left everyone saying that they were eager to get rid of her.

And yet, somehow, Christie has survived another week. Jackson decided that he’d rather get rid of Analyse and even said that, if there was a tie, he would break it by sending Analyse out of the house. So, as a result, only Nick voted to keep Analyse. Everyone else voted to evict her and Analyse is now off to the jury house.

Was Jackson really motivated to change his mind by the fact that Analyse couldn’t definitely tell him who she was planning on putting on the block if she won HoH? That’s what he’s been saying.

But still, it feels very strange and, as always, there’s a lot of conspiracy theories floating around out there. On twitter, a lot of people are convinced that the Diary Room may have influenced Jackson to target Analyse. We do know that someone in the Diary Room told Jackson to tone down his earlier behavior because he’s let it slip a few times while talking to Holly that the viewers were offended by some of the things he said during the first few weeks of the game. So, we do know that Jackson can be influenced by production and I would assume that the show’s producers would rather keep drama-causing Christie in the house over a boring player like Analyse.

Who knows? Please don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying that’s what happened because I have no way of knowing for sure. It could just be that Christie really did get lucky and everyone spontaneously decided that they needed to keep her around so she could go after Nick. Or maybe the universe really does want Christie in the house. Who knows?

Well, regardless of how it happened, Christie survived. And Holly is the new HoH! Who is Holly going to nominate? Well, that’s an interesting question. Nick seems like an obvious target, now. And Jessica’s been getting on a lot of people’s nerves. However, this is Prank Week which means there’s a twist!

And that twist is a big one. Basically, the viewers get to vote for one player (other than Holly) to be America’s Prankster. Holly will have to split her HoH power with America’s Prankster. That means that Holly will only get to make one nomination and the other will be made by the Prankster. The Prankster’s identity will also remain a secret.

How will this effect the game? Well, it depends on who wins the role. To be honest, though, I wouldn’t want to be the Prankster. Everyone’s going to be super paranoid once the twist is revealed and my main fear is that, as happens so often with twists like this, the rest of the house will accuse the wrong person of being the prankster and that person will be voted out as a result.

We’ll see what happens. Nominations are tomorrow!

I voted for Jackson jist bc i dont want him on the block just yet. I want christie and Tommy out so bad. Seems like the gay folk always win BB. The last few years anyway. Im tellin ya Tommy is pullin some strings with production. He is promoting himself everytime i see hum. Covers his butt good with sucking up to christie and whoever. It would be a mistake to take him to final 3.

Christy staying makes me sick! The production team is doing a terrific job of alienating its most loyal fans! She is DISGUSTING!!!! holly the whore of the house as HOH? Jackson gets another week to control things. The smug smirk on his face during the “big blow up” was so obvious the houseguests are all stupid not to see he was pulling the strings. I HATE THESE PEOPLE!!

Stop watching for the first time ever!! Though I do really like Nicole and Cliff, the others just got on my last nerve. Both Jacks are truly the worse people who have ever been on the show. Now I just read the updates that you provide. So sad, this show use to be my “must see TV”. PS – I truly believe production is playing a big part in the show this season, again, so sad!

Production has manipulated HGs in the DR every season, so this is nothing new. BB is suffering from its worst season ever, even less viewership than Season 9, so production will do whatever they can to boost viewership… they’re probably back in the think tank now trying to come up with more twists to get fans voting for something… anything… don’t be surprised if it gets worse.

I’ve decided to vote for Nick to get the power so he and Christie can sit on the block together. That should pump the fans up!

I just checked the ratings for Big Brother, Marcella. They are high for all nights. So I am sure they are happy with their summer show and will not be making any changes to the format. You are right about getting fans involved, that’s the way it is today. Tweeting and voting. Us oldsters are outdated in the fans they care about, so we better just accept that fact. Funny you picked, Nick, that’s exactly what I thought. Taco Tuesday will be mild compared to those two sitting next to each other.

Really… the Neilsens show them down more than 25% this year over last… and last years rating were so low, CBS seriously toyed with cancelling BB, (but they were way up for last nights eviction….) yep… the last time I think they had a female even close to my age was Rennie… lol As my husband likes to remind me.. “dang you’re getting old girl!”

Taco night should be fun if America gets it way!

I guess the Universe (not just America) really does want Christie to be in the house, KMB. I think Holly helped turn Jackson’s mind on that. He is easily swayed by what people tell him. And yes, I’m sure production wants Christie to stay so they probably helped too.

It will be fun to see who the voters pick. I hope Nick. It would be fun to see Christie and Nick on the block. Cliff might be interesting with his choice. I wonder if Betty was up all night voting.

It was fun watching Nicole sleep on BBAD last night. I would rather watch her sleep than Jessica talk or eat.

Obviously listening to Cliff and Holly’s conversation right now the HG have been told what the Prankster is going to do! Cliff is vowing to her that if he wins he will talk with her about who to put up! Why does everyone in the house not think Cliff and Nicole are a duo because he is always talking FOR her!

I absolutely can’t believe it! Jackson and Holly are plotting to pit Nick and Christie against each other again to cause a huge public fight about something Christie told her in their one on one and what Nick told her. Jackson is so sure he is going to win the Prankster vote that he told Holly he thinks he will put himself on the block so he can play in the veto and also because nobody would know that he got it!!!! Dumb ass. I hope to hell Nick puts Jackson on the block!

Christie and Nick

Holly put up Christie
Nick put up Christie

Holly was going to put her up anyway but only as a pawn. So she’s worse off now. So much for her safety. That didn’t last very long.
Can’t wait to see those two butting heads all week!!😏

Did you notice Julie again did not say anything about a double eviction next week?

I remember an interview with Alison G one time that she said there will always be a double eviction because that is a big part of the game. It also doesn’t look like there will be a jury battle back because they are both in the jury house together. Did everyone see their individual interviews in the jury house?

You know, I was looking at ratings for the nights compared to competition and not overall just looked at the Neilsens. I stand corrected. I wonder how much they make off the live feeds. Have they ever said how many people subscribe. No one my age ever, I’m almost as old as C’est! It would be nice to see a larger age group.

I understand the feeds subscribers have been way down for years…

I think there are few players over 40 for a couple of reasons.. we have jobs and can’t goof off for 3- months on tv and… we know better. I think the proof of my opinion is the celebrity BB. Most of those players were 40+ and audiences found them interesting enough.. their jobs allow for 3-months of reality tv and… they don’t know better.. “any publicity/tv time, is better than none!”

Anyway, the younger viewers are who they want… and apparently that group isn’t watching much tv..case in point, the only tv my boys really take time to watch… football… otherwise, I think they could go without it all together?
