SPOILERS ahead from the 2019 Big Brother 21 live feeds.
Who was nominated for eviction after the Big Brother 21 Final 4 HOH competition? Sure, you know it doesn't really matter -- the Power of Veto is everything this week -- but give me a minute to appreciate the irony. Here we are in Big Brother 21 Week 12 and Jackson Michie and Holly Allen are finally sitting next to each other on the block.
Yes, finally. Not that it really matters now, since the Veto could change it all. Here's the update from Friday evening (9/13/19):
There was also a luxury comp on Friday, with Ovi Kabir in the house, and Jackson won money. Because he's not doing well enough. Will that change anything for Cliff? Seeing Jackson win the luxury comp might finally trigger something in Cliff's head that Jackson has won enough. That's something that went through Jackson's head too.
I want Jackson evicted and, as far as I can tell, that's what HOH Nicole wants too. However, Cliff already announced to Nicole and Jackson that he still wants to keep Jackson around. Cliff wants a Final 3 of Jackson/Cliff/Nicole, so he would evict Holly if he won the Veto. I know. Jackson really has the best odds to win Big Brother Season 21. When did he become the puppet-master?
Here are some scenarios for the Saturday, Sept. 14 Veto comp:
Holly threw the HOH as part of her deal to stay this week over Tommy. Apparently Jackson and Holly did a lot of deal-making for Holly to survive to this point -- Holly was supposed to throw both HOH and Veto, and Jackson would take Cliff and Nicole to the end -- but they don't plan to stick with it. Because who the hell would?
Really? On Friday, Holly talked to Cliff and Nicole and said she'd target Jackson. That was her way of getting them to let her gun for the Veto tomorrow:
Really? If Cliff and Nicole believe any of that -- that Holly and Jackson would really turn on each other in favor of Cliff and Nicole -- they deserve what they get. I have to hope they don't buy it, they're just trying to get as many deals and promises out of Jolly as possible. It's not like they can make Holly throw another comp to them.
Cliff is still the target if Jackson or Holly win the Veto on Saturday. Holly appears to be Cliff's target if he wins Veto. Jackson is Nicole's target, and she'd have to hope Cliff lived up to his word in the event she won the Veto.
If Jackson makes it to Final 3 -- and that's looking good right about now -- he has a good chance of winning it all. There's still a chance for Cliff or Nicole to pull out a win and take each other, but I'm frustrated by just the idea of helping Jackson get that far. Honestly, I'm kind of with this BB fan who wants Nicole to completely cut ties with Cliff:
I'd rather Nicole take the shot at Jackson if they get to Final 3, but I'd much prefer a Final 3 of Nicole/Cliff/Holly. At this point, I'm rooting for a Nicole/Holly Final 2.
At any rate, I will take this moment to enjoy seeing Holly and Jackson on the block under Nicole's HOH. It's not quite the same as putting them up in the double eviction, as Christie Murphy and Tommy Bracco wanted her to do, but at least it finally happened after, what, 87 days?
