SPOILERS ahead from the 2019 Big Brother 21 live feeds.
Who won the HOH after the Big Brother 21 double eviction that took out Christie Murphy?
The battle lines are drawn for the final five in Big Brother 21, Week 11. After the double eviction, it seemed clear the final four of Nicole Anthony, Cliff Hogg III, Holly Allen, and Jackson Michie planned to stay together. What did that mean for Tommy Bracco? Christie's family friend from home certainly looked like a sitting duck, so if he didn't win the next HoH -- or the Veto -- he was in trouble.
Spoiler alert: So far, he's in trouble.
The HOH competition wasn't held late Thursday into Friday, as usual. Instead, Big Brother let Nicole be HOH for a bit and waited until the houseguests got up Friday morning and let the HOH comp and the Nomination Ceremony be held the same day. Here are the updates so far:
If I'm Tommy, I'm obviously gunning to win Veto on Saturday. But if that doesn't work, I'd pitch to Cliff and Nicole that they HAVE to break up Jackson and Holly. How much more obvious could it be that Jackson and Holly can steamroll comps to Final 2?
It did look like Cliff and Nicole had landed in a nice position -- Jackson and Holly want to get out Tommy, Tommy would love to take out Jackson and Holly -- but that's not going to help if Tommy wins Veto this week.
No one is directly targeting Nicole and Cliff, in part because they don't seem like very big threats. But Nicole did just take out Christie in the double eviction. That's certainly a resume move, especially when Jackson only took out Sis and Jess during his two HOH runs. Holly finally got her target Nick after a second try, but so many of the houseguests are just like fans -- they are rooting for Nicole. That will go a long way with the jury. Cliff also has a great story behind him. At the moment, Tommy is the underdog, and everyone loves an underdog. He has a lot of friends in that jury.
But Jackson and Holly have dominated this game -- from being a power couple in Gr8ful to briefly being the underdogs themselves before launching this successful new alliance with Cliff and Nicole. They have controlled the past four weeks in the house, taking out whoever they want, even if it's sometimes strange who they want to take out. (Sis and Jess? I mean, I guess...it did get Jackson here.)
So who will win Big Brother 21? It could be a close one, especially if Nicole and Cliff continue to win comps and eventually take out Jackson and Holly.
Big Brother 2019 airs Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays on CBS. Keep up with all the action on the live feeds.
