Big Brother 21 — Week 7 Veto Meeting Results

by Lisa Marie Bowman on August 12, 2019

Hi, y’all!

So, this will not come as a surprise to anyone but, at today’s veto meeting, Tommy used the power of veto to take Christie off the block. Since he didn’t nominate her for eviction, he didn’t need to pick a replacement. So, now, Kat and Cliff are still on the block.

And I have to say, that still bugs me. Christie was put on on the block as a punishment. America voted for her to go on the block. So, if she didn’t have to be replaced because she wasn’t actually nominated than, to me, it seems like it would stand to reason that she shouldn’t be eligible for the veto because, again, she wasn’t actually nominated.

I mean, Analyse came in second and is stuck wearing a chicken costume and making eggs all week. And there’s absolutely nothing that Analyse can do to get out of that punishment. Tommy had to wear a stupid costume, even after he became HoH, because it was a punishment and there’s no way to get out of it. If you refuse to do a punishment, the rules of Big Brother state that you automatically go on the block.

Meanwhile, Christie got the worst punishment that we could give her. America spent ten days voting to give her that punishment. From what I’ve heard, the vote wasn’t even close. America overwhelming decided to send Christie on that field trip, knowing she could get put on the block. And then her punishment only lasted 3 days.

I don’t think it’s a conspiracy as much as I just think that production isn’t really thinking through their policy decisions. It’s like when Cody was forced to nominate half the house during the first week of season 19. I almost wish they would stop doing twists like this because they never seem to work out the way that they should.

So, Christie is safe and right now, it appears that Kat is going to be the one to go. Earlier today, Nicole and Jessica both said that they feel like they should ally with Christie and Tommy instead of Jackson and Holly. Allying with Christie right now means voting out Kat.

As for what we have to look forward to after this week: DOUBLE EVICTION! As of right now, Christie, Tommy, and Analyse are talking about using the double eviction to get rid of Jackson. Strangely enough, they don’t seem to be planning on going after Holly. They apparently think that Holly will join up with them after they evict her boyfriend. That’s interesting logic.

As always, we’ll see what happens!

Big Brother 21 — Checking in With The House

by Lisa Marie Bowman on August 11, 2019

Hi y’all!

So, as of right now, I’m really not sure who is going to be going to the jury on Thursday. If I had to guess, I would say Kat. Jackson and Holly have both indicated that they’ll vote however Tommy wants and Tommy told Jackson that Kat would probably be his preference. At the same time, Tommy hasn’t really definitely said, “I want this person gone,” and that’s worrying both Jackson and Christie because they want to be sure to vote with the majority.

As for the rest, Jessica and Nicole have both told each other that they would rather vote out Kat than Cliff. They both trust Cliff while they’re still not totally sure where Kat’s head is at. Jessica is still worried that Kat could secretly be working with Holly and she doesn’t want to get stabbed in the back later on in the game.

However, Analyse has been telling Holly that it would be better for both of their games if Cliff was the one who was voted out. Analyse says she’s concerned that Cliff could win the next HoH while she’s fairly certain that Kat won’t. As Analyse put it, “Cliff is good at mental stuff and that’s really dangerous for my game.” In other words, Analyse views Cliff as being a threat because Cliff actually knows the difference between a noun, a verb, and an adjective.

As for Christie — well, who knows where Christie’s head is at? She’s still obsessing on why America voted for her to go on the field trip. She’s decided that it’s not because America can’t stand her but instead, because America loves her so much that they wanted to give her a chance to play in the OTEV comp! That said, Christie seems far more certain to vote for Kat than Cliff.

And then you’ve got Nick, who apparently is now envisioning a new alliance made up of himself, Tommy, Christie, Analyse, Nicole, and Cliff. Nick, being Nick, has spent most of this week kissing up to Tommy and the result right now is that absolutely no one in the House trusts him. Both he and Christie have currently got huge targets on their back and neither seems to realize it.

So, right now, if I had to guess, I’d say Kat will be voted out on Thursday. But you never know! Things can change quickly in the Big Brother House, especially when you’ve got a paranoid group of houseguests.

Here’s what I’d love to see happen: At tomorrow’s veto ceremony, Tommy tries to use the veto on Christie. A voice says, “You cannot use the veto on the loser of the field trip comp.” It won’t happen, even though I kind of think that it should. (After all, America votes for 10 days straight to put Christie on the block.) Seriously, though, if Tommy didn’t have that veto, Christie would be going to jury this week.

*sigh*

Oh well! We’ll see what happens,

Big Brother 21 — Week 7 Veto Comp Results

by Lisa Marie Bowman on August 10, 2019

Well, everyone, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but here goes.

Earlier today, they did the veto comp. Tommy, Christie, Cliff, Kat, Jackson, and Nick competed for the veto. Shortly before the comp took place, Jackson and Holly were talking about how much they distrust Christie and they agreed that if Jackson won the veto, he would not use it on Christie and that the two of them would join Nicole and Jessica in voting her out of the House.

So, I was pretty excited because, say what you will about Jackson as a human being, he’s still pretty good at comps. And if it meant getting Christie out of the house, I was totally in favor of him winning this one veto comp.

But, somehow, it did not happen. The feeds just came back from the veto comp and …. Tommy won the veto.

If you were one of the many who wanted to see Christie voted out this week, Tommy winning the veto was your worst case scenario. Tommy is going to use the veto to take Christie off the block. Since Christie was nominated as the result of a comp and is technically not one of “Tommy’s nominees,” Tommy will not be required to name a replacement. That means that, unless something huge happens between tonight and Monday afternoon, it’ll be either Kat or Cliff getting evicted on Thursday.

Sorry, everyone. Apparently, Tommy’s on a winning streak right now. If it makes anyone feel better, at least Analyse is having to wear a stupid chicken costume all week. (That’s her punishment for coming in 2nd during the field trip comp.)

Big Brother 21 — Week 7 Nominations

by Lisa Marie Bowman on August 9, 2019

Hi, everyone!

The feeds were down a lot today but we can finally tell you which THREE players are now on the block!

First off, the field trip comp was played earlier today. The viewers voted for Jackson, Analyse, and Christie to take “the field trip” and compete to either be safe or to be nominated.

Jackson won the comp, which means that he will be safe for the week. He cannot be nominated and he cannot go up as a replacement. Analyse came in second, which means that she’s going to get some sort of punishment. Christie came in third, which means that she automatically went on the block.

After the field trip comp, they held the nomination ceremony. As he had been talking about doing ever since he first became HoH, Tommy nominated Cliff and Kat for eviction.

So, as of right now: Christie, Cliff, and Kat are on the block.

Now, I’m not sure how the veto is working this week. With three nominees on the block, would Tommy have to pick a replacement if one of them won and used the veto? I get the feeling that if the veto is used on Christie, Tommy won’t have to name a replacement because Christie is technically not Tommy’s nominee. However, if Cliff or Kat comes down, I imagine Tommy will have to pick a replacement and that replacement would probably be Nicole.

So, let’s say that the veto is not used this week. If the three nominees remain the same, there would only be five houseguests voting that week: Jackson, Analyse, Jessica, Nicole, and Nick. I can’t imagine any circumstance in which Jessica and Nicole would not vote for Christie. By that same token, Jackson and Analyse are both going to vote for either Cliff or Kat. Which means that Nick would be the deciding vote.

(Whoops! When I wrote the paragraph above, I totally forgot about Holly! So, if Nick goes with Jessica and Nicole, it would be a tie and Tommy would break it. But Jackson and Holly also have issues with Christie so it’s actually totally possible that they may just go ahead and get rid of her. Well, we’ll see!)

And who knows what Nick would do? After spending last week sucking up to Jessica and the outsiders, Nick has spent the past day sucking up to Tommy. Nick likes to play both sides of the house so it’ll be interesting to see what he does this week.

We’ll see what happens with the veto competition tomorrow!

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!

Well, tomorrow is the night that I know a lot of you have been waiting for!

Either Jack or Jackson will be leaving the Big Brother House! Now, they won’t be going home. As much as some of us would love to see them totally out of the game, they’ll actually still very much be a part of it all. Whoever is voted out will be sent to the jury house and will later play a key role in determining who wins this season of Big Brother.

And, with this being Big Brother, it’s always possible that they’ll do a jury battleback at some point. So, regardless of who goes, we’re still going to have to deal with them in one way or the other.

STILL — at least we won’t have him in the House, bossing people around and controlling the game.

So, who do you want to see voted out on Thursday?

Do you vote for…

JACK, the long-haired lifeguard who wants you to think of him as being Aquaman

or

JACKSON, A.K.A. MICHIE, the short-haired unemployed guy who swears that he hates bullies even though he’s spent the first half of the season bullying the entier house?

Let us know either in the comments section below or vote in this poll that we have going in the Big Brother Blog Facebook Group! Here’s the link!

And then, be sure to watch Thursday to see what will probably be a very satisfying eviction!

Happy voting,

Lisa Marie

P.S. I vote for Jackson.

Big Brother 21 — Approaching Thursday

by Lisa Marie Bowman on August 6, 2019

Hi y’all!

So, I’m checking in with the Big Brother House. Tommy is having to wear a stupid costume. Jack spent the first part of the week being harassed by Albert the Alien, who basically ordered Jack to clean up after himself at all hours of the night. Jackson has just completed his punishment, which was to get doused in slime every hour for 24 hours. That’s all a result of them failing to win the veto this week. We’ll see that competition on the show tomorrow.

The veto was won by Jessica and, since she declined to use it, the Six Shooters are currently in disarray. It’s been fun to watch. After spending the first half of this season smugly talking down to the rest of the House and targeting people for the least little thing, Jack and Jackson are now on the block and neither one of them is dealing with it very well.

Jack acts like he’s still convinced that he can somehow save himself and avoid getting voted out but I think, deep down, Jack knows that there’s next to no chance that he won’t be voted out on Thursday. Analyse is even more upset about it than Jack. She’s spent a lot of time whining about how much she hates being on the show and how she wishes she could just self-evict. That’s gotten rather old, considering that Analyse has never even been on the block. As for Holly, she keeps asking whether or not the feeds are live, which would seem to indicate that Holly still doesn’t understand that she’s on Big Brother.

(I think all of the Six Shooters were recruits, as opposed to fans who actually went through the process of applying for the show. I imagine that explains a lot of about their entitled attitude.)

Jack thinks that he can scare Kat into voting to keep him by threatening to blow up her game otherwise. I doubt that’s going to work since everyone in the House already knows that Kat spent the first half of the game playing both sides and no one really cares. Jack has also considered stabbing Christie in the back and trying to convince everyone to keep him around so that he can go after her. Neither one of those plans seems likely to work but what’s really dooming Jack is his entire attitude. Even on the block, he can’t fake the humility necessary to not come across like he thinks he’s better than everyone else in the House.

For some reason, even though it’s pretty much guaranteed that he’s going to survive this week, Jackson told Holly that he’s going to blow up everyone’s game in his eviction speech. Holly asked to hear his speech, just for Jackson to reply, “I already know the speech is good. You’ll hear it on Thursday with everyone else.” Personally, I’d think it would be a better strategy to lay low and let Jack keep screwing up but I guess Jackson knows better.

Thursday cannot get here soon enough!

Big Brother 21 — Week 6 Veto Meeting Results

by Lisa Marie Bowman on August 5, 2019

Hi, everyone!

Well, this week just keep getting better and better!

Earlier today, Jessica held the power of veto meeting and she announced that she would NOT be using the veto. So, Jack and Jackson are still on the block and Christie’s power has now expired.

Jack is still clearly the target, even though he’s convinced himself that he has enough votes to stay. He and Analyse have made their pitches to both Cliff and Nick and Jack seems to think that he’s convinced both of them to vote to evict Jackson on Thursday. However, Cliff and Nick have both told Jessica and the other outsiders that they will be voting to evict Jack, so it appears that Jack’s got a surprise in store for him on Thursday. It also appears that Jack is under the impression that this week is going to be a double eviction. It’s not.

Christie spent all last night saying that she was going to blow up the house after the veto meeting, presumably by telling everyone that Holly and Kat know each other outside of the house. However, I have yet to see her actually doing any of that, perhaps because she doesn’t want anyone then finding out that she and Tommy were acquainted before the game started. As for Tommy, he just can’t stop crying about the prospect of Jack leaving.

As of right now, the vote should be 5-3 to send Jack to the jury. It’s totally possible that Christie and Tommy might change their minds and vote with the majority of the House, in which case it’ll be a 7-1 vote to evict Jack.

Thursday should be fun!

Big Brother 21 — The Six Shooters Are Still Breaking Down

by Lisa Marie Bowman on August 4, 2019

Hi, y’all!

So, for perhaps for the first time this season, I actually enjoyed watching Big Brother tonight. Even though I already knew what we would be seeing, it was still wonderful to watch the Six Shooters fall apart so dramatically. The Six Shooters went from being one of the most dominant alliances in Big Brother history to being a complete mess and it all happened within 24 hours.

And, here’s what’s really great about it: The week’s not over!

So, here’s the situation in the house right now:

Jack and Jackson are on the block.

Jessica has won the power of veto.

Jessica is absolutely not going to use the veto. Christie tried to convince her to use the veto to take down Jackson and to put up Nick. Nick tried to convince Jessica to use the veto on Jackson and to put up Tommy. Both of them argued that taking Jackson off the block would ensure that Jack went home. (Christie, however, was lying and basically wanted to blindside Nick.) Jessica considered both ideas but, as of right now, she is not using the veto.

So, come Thursday, either Jack or Jackson will be going to the jury house. Here’s how the vote is breaking down right now:

Holly, Cliff, Kat, and Nicole are all planning on voting to evict Jack.

Christie, Tommy, and Analyse want to evict Jackson.

Nick is kind of a floater. He’s said that he’ll vote however Jessica tells him to vote and Jessica wants Jack gone. So, if Nick votes for Jack, it would be a 5-3 vote to evict Jack.

So, right now, Jack and his allies are hoping to convince Nick and one other houseguest to flip their votes. Earlier today, Jack tried to approach Kat but he made the mistake of being his usual condescending self in their conversation and now Kat appears to be more determined than ever to vote him out. So now, Jack and company are planning on focusing their efforts on Cliff. They’re going to try to convince Cliff that Holly and Kat are friends outside the House and they think that, if they get Cliff paranoid enough, Cliff will flip.

If all of that happens and Jack is not evicted, the plan is to then bring Cliff and Nick into a new alliance with Jack, Christie, Tommy, and Analyse and to then target Kat and Holly for eviction.

It’s a big plan and it probably won’t work because everyone in the House hates Jack. Even Chrisite and Tommy have privately told each other that, if it looks like the votes can’t be flipped, they’ll go ahead and vote to evict Jack. Analyse appears to be the only person who is firmly committed to not out of Jack.

For his part, Jack seems to know that he’s going to voted out on Thursday. Just about an hour ago, he pulled Nick aside and made Nick promise to evict Analyse next so that Jack can have some company in the jury house.

What a guy, right?

Anyway, I can’t wait until Thursday! It should be fun!

Big Brother 21 — Week 6 Veto Comp Results

by Lisa Marie Bowman on August 3, 2019

Hi, everyone!

So, I don’t know where the current Jessica was for the first two months or so of the game but she is totally dominating the house right now.

First, she won HoH.

Then, she nominated Jack and Jackson for eviction.

And now …. JESSICA HAS WON THE GOLDEN POWER OF VETO!

What does this mean? Well, it means that one of the Jacks will be going to jury this week. Christie isn’t going to use her power and, if she did, it would simply mean that Jessica could take someone down and replace them with whoever she wanted. That’s a power that Jessica, as veto holder and HoH already has.

So, which one of the two Jacks will be going to the jury house? Jessica has made it clear that her target is Jack. Now, to be honest, I think it would be a better idea to go after Jackson but I guess the feeling is that Jack is a bigger challenge and social threat than Jackson.

So, as of right now, it looks like its “Bye bye, Jack” and the entire game is about to change.

Who would have guessed it would be Jessica who would end finally getting a six shooter out of the house?
