Big Brother 21 — The Blindside Continue To Brew

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 10, 2019

Hi y’all!

So, when last I checked, Cliff was still telling the feedsters that he was officially undecided on whether or not to blindside Holly but, just from listening to him and Nicole talk, it sounds pretty obvious that he’s going to do it. Cliff, probably more than any other recent guest, likes to play to the camera. He’s been a fan of the show for a long time and he’s fond of trying to drag out the suspense of how he’s going to vote. Just because Cliff says he doesn’t know how he’s going to vote doesn’t mean that’s true.

Last night, Tommy offered Nicole and Cliff a pretty big deal. Basically, he told them that, if they blindside Holly, he’ll throw the next HoH comp and then allow either Cliff or Nicole to put him on the block next to Jackson. Cliff seemed to be very intrigued by the deal but how does he know that Tommy’s telling the truth? If Tommy does stay and wins HoH, he could just as easily team up with Jackson and then take out either Cliff or Nicole. Just last night, Tommy was telling Nicole that he feels it would be impossible to defeat her in a final two situation. Of course, if Holly stays, she’ll definitely team up with Jackson to take out Cliff and Nicole.

Here’s why I think Tommy might go ahead and throw the HoH comp. If he does and then Jackson’s nominated and evicted by either Cliff or Nicole, Tommy won’t have to worry about Jackson getting angry and refusing to vote for him in the finale. Instead, Jackson will be angry at whoever’s sitting next to Tommy. Tommy’s entire game has basically been about getting other people to do the dirty work while he sits back and pretends to be everyone’s friend. Considering that Holly is already going to angry with Cliff and Nicole and that Christie is on the jury, that would mean that, if Tommy makes it to the final two, he would probably already have three people on the jury planning to vote for him.

If I was in Nicole’s shoes, I’m not sure that I would trust Tommy but, at the same time, I would also know that Jackson has got to go. He’s too good at comps and. if he’s competing in the final HoH comp, there’s a good chance he’ll win it. And if Jackson makes it to the final two, he would be a strong contender to win. I think Cliff and Nicole’s mistake was not making a big move earlier because now they’re in a position where they have to beat two strong competitors, one after another.

Anyway, as of right now, the HGs are doing an Easter egg hunt and everyone appears to be in a pretty good mood. So, I’m going to guess that Holly still doesn’t know that she’s going to be blindsided on Thursday.

We’ll see what happens!
