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!

I don’t trust Tommy! I am sure he will team up with Jackson if Holly is evicted on Thursday.

At this point it’s difficult to know what the remaining players are planning to do! I think they are all telling each other what they want to hear! I don’t trust Jackson at all! He’s playing Nicole like a violin! “Little sister!,”. She’s so gullible where Jackson’s concerned ! I think “Little sister” has a crush on her brother ! 💗
I would love for Holly to go to Jury and for Tommy to actually throw the HOH! We shall see! It’s going to be an interesting week!
Goodnight everyone! Sleep well! 💗

Poor Nicole. I do think she’s smarter than she lets on. Though she may have a little crush on Jackson, I don’t think she’s stupid enough to fall for his B.S. She’s smart enough to make him think she does though!

I agree! Dont trust Tommy..two faced all nice Tommy. Evict Holly and let the cards fall. They blew it when they didnt get rid of jackson when they had the chance. Now lets hope for the best!
Get rid of Holly and Jackson and ..I would be happy with that.
First time i can say i dont care who wins but i do care who does not win!!

Thanks Lisa

Tommy seems to be a pretty sensitive man. The way he’s been there for those players when they are upset. He looks them right in their face with tears in his eyes. 💞 .I think he’s sincere. I would love for Nicole and Cliff to be final two. I can’t believe the season’s almost over. :'(

It is all an act. Tommy is a good actor, but he is ruthless and would sell his own mother for 500K!

Since I’m not watching the feeds this year, nor BBAD, I probably shouldn’t have an opinion… but I do. I think Tommy’s “like” for his fellow HGs is real, but he’s also playing the game. I think he wants Jackson out of the house as much as anyone else.

Jackson’s resume is pretty strong in the house, and he has a lot of allies in the Jury. If he does make it to the end, as much as I loathe him, he deserves to win based upon his game play… which is exactly why they need to get rid of him.

I think Tommy’s strategy is a good one. He does put himself at risk of getting voted out if Jackson wins Veto, but Tommy is just as likely to win the Veto. Obviously, the Veto winner will decide who stays and who goes…

I’m looking forward to seeing how Jackson reacts to the Holly blindside…. I’m expecting a blow-up, but he could just be relieved that he didn’t have to vote her out himself! He’s a user, and based upon his recent behavior towards her, I’d have to tell her… “he’s just not that into you!” Maybe she’ll smell the coffee in jury. Their showmance is done!

A side note, Cliffs the second oldest player to make it to F4 in BB US history. Only Jerry MacDonald was older at 75… and truthfully, Jerry was carried along by Dan & Memphis because they knew he didn’t have a chance against them in F3 comps. Interestingly, they’re both from my home state of Texas! Go Cliff!

Last night on BBAD, Nicole was tap dancing on my last nerve! Her comp wins have gone to her head! Now I want to see Cliff and Jackson in the final two!

I knew Tommy shouldn’t have told J/H about knowing Christie because they are planning to use it against him in her campaign to C/N. And sure enough Jackson told Cliff at Holly’s urging. This might have backfired on them.

Holly is very upset that Cliff didn’t tell her she was safe. He told her he was going to vote with Nicole and now Holly is panicked!
