Warning! The following contains spoilers for Big Brother! Read at your own risk!
The latest Head of Household competition was full of scares and screams, and the battle was fierce to decide who would be the next leader of the Big Brother house. For anyone hoping that the showmance Holly Allen and Jackson Michie would be ripped apart, they're gonna have to wait a tick because Jackson was crowned HoH yet again.
Big Brother 21 viewers could've guessed how Jackson was going to handle nominations ahead of his win, and sure enough, Michie has already assured his core four of Holly, Cliff Hogg III, and Nicole Anthony that they are safe. Michie even confessed that when it got down to 3 in the latest competition he was going to throw the HoH so Nicole would win (she really needed a win), but said he couldn't risk it with Tommy Bracco still in the running.
Michie said he doesn't want to pursue Tommy, and that his nominations will be Christie Murphy and Jessica Milagros. That's a win for Jackson either way, although it would benefit his game the most for Christie to leave as that would weaken Tommy's greatest ally in the game from day one. With that said I would be very surprised if Christie survives the block yet again, but she's survived more sure-fire eliminations and Tommy will fight for the veto to keep her in things over Jess.
When things will really get interesting is the Double Eviction, as the pressure will really be on Holly to try and win the next HoH yet again if she wants to keep her beau in the race (provided there's no twist). Technically, Nicole and Cliff are in the final 4 with them, but even they at this point have to know their odds aren't looking great going down to the wire with that duo. Hell, it's not looking good for anyone to go down to the wire with Jackson and Holly.
With that said Cliff has been a man of his word from the jump of Big Brother, and Nicole had a chance to make a major play this week but ultimately balked and wouldn't even give Nick Maccarone a sympathy vote. It's hard to imagine they won't stick to their alliance and hold to a final 4, and frankly, whoever is left following the first elimination would be happy to take their place in the Holly and Jackson alliance if one broke rank. Big Brother fans may just have to face facts that Jackson or Holly may just win Big Brother!
