Big Brother 21 – Sunday Recap for 9/1/19

 

Advertisement:

Good Labor Day morning. I hope you all had an amazing weekend and if you’re off work today, enjoying yourself. Except for the Jolly Rancher shomance drama, we’re just sitting around waiting for Jess to be evicted and see who comes out on top in the double eviction on Thursday. The veto ceremony won’t even be pivotal today because we already know Tommy will take Christie off the block. He was always going to take her off, it was only a matter of which reason he’d use.

Tommy telling Jackson that he had Beth and saying Tommy only had Christie was just as good as any other reason he could’ve came up with. For a time, I thought they were all lying to each other but for now, Jackson believes Tommy is with him. He and Beth are a little concerned but not as much as they should be. Jackson thinks they should throw the next 2 hoh’s so they don’t have “to show their cards.” Beth thinks they should throw the next one and decide from there. Yep, Jolly is still a couple.

Is it possible the DE won’t bring any excitement? If they stick to this plan, we’ll head into Thursday knowing Christie and Tommy have good odds to win. If Beth throws it, there will only be 4 people really competing for it and the physical part should give Tommy the advantage. Tommy and Christie will go after Jolly and I think, Cliff and Nicole will go after Christie and Tommy. Will Beth really throw the comp this late in the game? I have to think once they find out it’s a double, she and Jackson will change their minds about this but you never know.

Yesterday was the typical Sunday, Funday outside while they wait for the veto ceremony. Sometimes, there’s a lot of game being played leading up to it but Jess told Nicole she wasn’t going to campaign and doesn’t see the need for it so it was a very slow day. Here’s the recap:

  • Jackson and Beth made up and she said she was mad at her body for making her act crazy but said she’s normal again. (She HAS to be grading on a curve) She said she was only having a hormonal and chemical imbalance. She wished she could take back the last 48 hours, said Zingbot got in her head and made her start worrying about the outside after she’d managed to stop for a time. (I missed those weeks, I guess)
  • Jackson said they needed to focus and work together to finish the game. She asked if he only want to be together for the game. He said he didn’t know and she wished she hadn’t asked him. They talked, made up and things were happy again. (That’s the only detail I’m giving because I spent part of the day yesterday writing about these two idiots and I’m spent)
  • Christie and Tommy talked about how the game is going. He doesn’t want to chance anything even though he believes she’d stay this week. The mentioned things from their relationship and talked about sitting on the couch and watching BB together last year. They’re amazed they both ended up  in the house and playing together.
  • Tommy told Jackson again but more officially this time, he wants to use the veto on Christie. Jackson said he understood and said he didn’t want Christie leaving either. They discussed Cliff being the next one who needed to go. Tommy pushed just a bit for Cliff to go this week and said taking Nicole out would be smart because Cliff and Jess arn’t together. Jackson said he’s worried about Jess winning BB Comics and Tommy said she wouldn’t be able to hold herself up so she wouldn’t win it. Things ended with Cliff still  being the next target, (but not really)  Jess going home and Tommy saying he loved Nicole too.
  • Jackson filled Cliff in on what he said to Tommy and told him he went along with Cliff being a threat but assured Cliff he wasn’t going anywhere.
  • Jackson bragged about telling the DR he could live without watermelon easier than living without Beth. (The ‘make us a sweet flavored Jolly Rancher’ tour is officially underway)
  • Christie let Cliff know Tommy was going to use the veto on her but promised Cliff she would vote to keep him. (Wonder what Jess will think about this?) They both agreed Jackson and Beth feel safe and are playing both sides. They mostly had the same talk Nicole and Tommy had recently. Christie said he’s been in power so long, he’s just assuming people will continue to kiss ass. (She isn’t wrong but it’s mostly Jolly getting too used to the hoh life. They’ve forgotten WHY things are going their way and think it’s great game play) Christie told Cliff she plans to go after them if she wins the next one.
  • Jolly said they trust Cliff and Nicole more than Christie and Tommy but say they’ll  be ok no matter who wins the next one. They said they have the votes and if it ends up being Nicole and Beth otb, Jackson and Tommy will keep her. They began wondering when Christie and Tommy would wake up and see they have to compete against them and stop being loyal. They’ve both played decent games (for this season) but 3 weeks of hoh has caused them to see the game throgh hoh goggles.
  • Beth told Jackson she wondered how he’d  see her once he was looking at her in different lighting. (fishing for compliments) She said something about crows feet and Nicole corrected her and said “buzzards feet.” Haha
  • Jess told Nicole she thought things were good with her and Jackson so she didn’t understand why he put her otb. She said maybe she didn’t know things about some of the other relationships in the house. (No shit!) She also said everyone already knew her strengths and weaknesses and they knew Cliffs too. For that reason, she doesn’t see the need to campaign

That’s pretty much it for yesterday. If you want excitement, I’d start hoping people get paranoid but that would only result in Cliff leaving over Jess and that’s not very exciting either. Cliff isn’t some amazing player but he has done well for himself, especially as the token 50 plus player. He’s done a lot more than Jess. I’d hoped Jess was the next to leave before the wall comp was finished and that hasn’t changed for me. Nice enough lady but awful BB player.

I keep reading peoples opinions about production meddling regarding Christie and Tommy. (Not so much here but other places) I dont see it, sorry. I just don’t see the conspiracy this time around. It’s one thing to pass off a bad decision as a twist but do they really want Christie and Tommy in the F2? I don’t think so because it only opens the door wider for people to say “well, of course they got to the F2. They knew each other!” It’s a better result for the show if they’re found out at some point in the game. Sure, they wanted Christie to stick around and have probably led people in that direction in the DR because she’s easy to edit for entertaining episodes. I also wouldn’t be surprised if some of Nicole’s recent “concern” over what is up with Christie and Tommy lately, is some leading questions in the DR. I’m not saying that’s what’s happening, only that it wouldn’t surprise me. Sorry there wasn’t more to offer today.

Have a great Monday.

    As I said yesterday I just want Christie out before Cliff or Nicole her personality is grating to put it midly and I really don’t think her gameplay has been all that impressive. Yes she will survive mulptile trips to the block but that has been because of Tommy her built in from day one ally saving her twice and bad game decisions from Jackson and Holly if not for that she would have been out two or three weeks ago it’s the classic example of it’s better to be lucky than good.

  2. Mary

    Would like to see Cliff and Nicole going as far as they can, they seem to be the only one’s not so annoying. Agree Jackson and Holly have gotten to comfortable up in the HOH room, and have no doubt if either Christie or Tommy win HOH in the double they will put them up. Jackson believes that Tommy won’t put him up, that’s wishful thinking. You’re competing for a half million dollars, that’s something they have forgotten about. Well maybe not forgotten, just seems foolish at some of their decision lately. Voting out Sis was so stupid in my eyes.

  3. mustangsally

    I hope Cliff or Nicole win HOH and put up TT and CC.

  4. Mary

    Would be nice to see Cliff win in the double Thursday and then Nicole next. That’s my wish for the week.

  5. Ashley

    • Robin

      Wrong tree Ashley, disagreeing with the opinion is fine… that is a personal attack!

    • Mary

      Isn’t every season in someway? The way they ask questions and push certain agendas in the diary room. Isn’t that why they always get the warnings when they talk about them among themselves.

      • Robin

        Completely agree Mary, but I don’t go to someone house where they pay the bills and insult them in their living room.

      • Mary

        First let me say I gave Ashley a thumbs up. She has a right to her opinion, just as we all do on this site. Plus, you don’t know if she was just joking or not. Goodness gracious ! If Mel wants to address it, let her.

      • ElaineB

        I read it as a ‘ribbing’, and thought it was funny. Having read Mel for many seasons, she has a sense of humor! Mel herself has strong opinions about Production. In giving of her time and talents, Mel has shown good backbone, to read through many different opinions and reactions to her recaps.

      • NKogNeeTow

        Mary,

        That didn’t sound like an opinion, but more of a personal attack, which as all of you know, I take VERY seriously and it won’t be tolerated from ANYONE, regardless of whether it was directed at Mel or anyone else. 🙂

    • Tam

      Ashley, I really hope that was a joke. Not being mean spirit to you, whatsoever, #1 MEL is not paid by CBS and this HER daily recap. This site isn’t CBS sponsored or there wouldn’t be any room to post your opinion. Yes, we all have had thoughts that CBS is heavy handed with production medalling, but damn sure, not MEL. She has been consistent and her takes are what we wake up and go from there. Our mornings with Mel are like a sacred place and I am sure that I am not only one that will be quick to defend Mel. There is donation tab at the top of the page. Definitely need that coffee now.

      • Robin

        Very elegantly said Tam!

      • Tam

        Not really, Robin, I can’t spell this morning or think straight. Trying to get some coffee made and try to really wake up. This screen flickering is working my nerves this morning. Doesn’t help with the head. Finally got to sleep some decent hours last night and still feeling really groggy. Ok, I am going to see if my brew is ready……;-)

      • danmtruth

        Good job Tam did not see this when i posted yours was better written and express the same thoughts Thanks

    • Mel

      If you’ve read very much of anything I’ve written for this site, you would know I’m a huge believer in production meddling. I’ve actually been so hard on production a few times, I was afraid I might make it harder for Steve to be invited or included in BB events. I don’t defend them and even the idea of it is hilarious but I’ll always welcome your opinions and those of others. Thanks for taking the time to read the recap.

      • AIO_7

        ” I was afraid I might make it harder for Steve to be invited or included in BB events.”

        I’ve thought that too; and hence the willful blindness, and making statements like Christie is one of the top 5 BB players of all time.

      • ElaineB

        Thx for all you do Mel!

      • Mel

        That’s one of the things that’s great about Steve. He’s never asked me to tone down my opinions on the show, the cast or production and we often disagree. He just let’s me log on and type. Now that I think about it, I don’t even think he’s ever mentioned all my typos either. Lol

        For the record, I don’t even think Christie is a good player so I don’t know where that one came from. Shes an average level emotional player imo. Someone like Vanessa was an emotional player too but she excelled at it.

      • AIO_7

        “For the record, I don’t even think Christie is a good player so I don’t know where that one came from.”

        Steve said that; and I was implying the willful blindness is his.

      • Mel

        Lol. I was so lost.

    • danmtruth

      Ashley sarcasm is hard to properly express in short takes I hope you were saying it sarcastically Like how much are they paying you not to see , , , yada yada ,, , one thing that draws me to this site Is hiw well thought out Dteves ,Mel and NK take on the show is With that allowing other reasnable points of view to be discused I think many of us have a tend to defend who we see as our family Some might have jumped to Mels defense in stronger than need reaction

    • Tam

      Ashley, I apologize for my curt response and defense of Mel. Not a morning person and tend to be defensive if feeling Mel and/or the group is being attacked. I have experienced it personally so it makes me more sensitive that I need be. Again, I apologize. Lost internet for a while so forgive me for the delayed apology….Always fun to be on hold 28 minutes with just customer service…..

      • Ashley

        It’s okay, no apology needed! I’ve been through way worse! I can see some people are a little touchy, lol. I just wish I could see how many thumbs up I got on my comment before it was removed!

      • Mel

        You actually had quite a few. Up and down was about 50/50 last time I scrolled by it. Lol

  6. Robin

    On the hurricane front, my crew has, so far, decided to ride it out. I’m hoping that we don’t live to regret that decision. I just want it be over with. This has got to be one of the slowest hurricanes in history!

    • Tam

      Robin, definitely been praying for you and continuing to do so. Harvey was hell for us. Just sat on us and still get sick thinking about it because still not recovered from it. The decision to stay or leave is daunting. I stayed and then after had to leave because of the flooding. That was another nightmare that I still have utter terror from. Thank God for the Cajun Navy that came in and helped rescue so many in our area. Please keep your eye out, be prepared, and please keep us posted. Praying that it just goes by quick and heads out to the Atlantic and not along the Atlantic seaboard. This country is going through enough. If things get tough you know you have us in your corner and in our prayers. Much Love to you, honey, not in the BB fake way but for real…..

    • Charlotte

      Same here, Robin. Under a mandatory evacuation as of noon today, but we’re staying. We’ll move to higher ground with all the animals, but not leaving town. Hope you make it through safely, along with anyone else in the cone of destruction. Will be keeping up with BB through this site. Losing power is pretty much a given this week.

    • Mel

      Praying for you Robin and everyone else having to deal with this.

    • danmtruth

      Goes without saying listening to these reports take on a much more personal concern

    • Alda

      A turtle could move faster then this hurricane.Now,my brother in law’s college is closed tomorrow.His daughter’s school is open.They are in Lee county.

    • Nikki

      Robin – in response to your “this has to be the slowest hurricane”

      I just saw a meme (from my uncle who lives 20 miles north of Orlando) that said,
      “Dorian is like that friend that says they’ll be over in five minutes but they haven’t gotten out of bed or even showered yet!”

  7. Annabelle

    Poor thumby bored today. Hope we entertain you. Hope all my fellow junkies have a great day and that today is one of those good days for those in pain. Going to wonder and think a few while waiting on my hubby to get off work. His last Labor day as a officer! This time next year we will be 50 years old and I want to spend next Sept on a beach! Back to BB stuff…I keep wondering how everyone will react to the fact the one big secret Tommy has kept. Chompy has about blown it several times and probably would have if not for Tommy. I agree Dan there’s just something about Chompy besides her manners that grates my nerves. I however has some weird soft spot for Nick. I’m not usually the of the mindset that the love of the right person can change someone but I think this with him. He has some deep wounds that need to be healed tha causes his overly sexual actions. To want to work with kids with problems takes something not everyone has. Maybe seeing himself on tv will be a changing day for him. I also hope he doesn’t get with Bella. The video of how we feeders see and think etc was all I needed to know she is spoiled and oblivious.

    • Annabelle

      Also prayers for those in hurricane path and those with family in it. I have family in Florida and Alabama but blessed this time. Hopefully all will be minimal this go round.

    • danmtruth

      Annabella i cannot say loud enough how i hope you and your husband get to spend that time on the beach I cant believe or imagine the changes your husband has seen in how people interact with him now What control officers must have to try to be open enough to want to help strangers Some who have shown disresoect for them but when trouble happens look to them for protection It was never an easy job i just see the job having got harder for so many reasons
      As for Nick Yes he is young and got involved in something he did not realize how unprepared he was I was harsh in my criticism of him because of his training forgetting he lacked the experience to take what he learned and to apply it to what was happening in the world around him

  8. hogwild

    I see thumbsy is with us today.

  9. hogwild

    Just checked the feeds we have puppies must be doing the anti climatic veto cermoney.

  10. hogwild

    Feeds are back it still shows Christie and Jessica as noms so either they were down for something else or Tommy did something crazy and considering Christies is not flipping out must have been something else.

    • Annabelle

      You never know with this bunch. Tommy leaving them the same would be good game play and would make screwing over jolly that much easier and for some entertaining feeds after they realize it. Plus the dream of a CC backdoor is there but probably wishful thinking

    • Robin

      Hey Hog, I’m having one of my many stupid moments… who is thumbsy?

      • hogwild

        That is our name for the troll who comes in and gives every post or almost every post a thumbs down but never actually post anything.

      • danmtruth

        Gives a thumbs down for wishing Mr Berdo good luck and good health for his new baby he is expecting Even giving people thumb down on saying how cute a pet is Just a troll that thinks giving a thumbs down is some great power trip Our wierd cousin no one wa ts to get stuck with at family gatherings

      • NKogNeeTow

        Thumby is our own personal resident Troll who has been here for many years. I gave him the name Thumby years ago to give him an identity since he’s a man of few words. I just tell everyone new that he’s part of the family too. And that he’s that annoying cousin that everybody knows about but never speaks of. Pay him no mind. 🙂

    BMX has all cams on Jess, her first ever camera chat.

  13. Mary

    They down graded Dorian to a Cat 4.

  14. hogwild

    I’m not the conspiracy type don’t believe the moon landing was faked or there was a second shooter on the grassy knoll my biggest issue with production is the editing they do where they try and make some people look much better than they are and other’s look worse. If you are going to have feeds up basically 24/7 doing deceptive editing is not only stupid but a waste of time in this day with this tech the truth always comes out even inept computer dopes like me can find it.

    • AIO_7

      ….”my biggest issue with production is the editing they do where they try and make some people look much better than they are and other’s look worse”….

      Think about it; if they are going to go to the trouble to do that, then why not put your thumb on who stays or not?

    • danmtruth

      Hog as a feed watcher you would think that is true With sites like this Yet look at pools and the difference in how HG are perceived bye feed watchers and people who just watch the 3 network shows Normaly always a vast difference

  15. AIO_7

    “I keep reading peoples opinions about production meddling regarding Christie and Tommy. (Not so much here but other places) I dont see it, sorry. I just don’t see the conspiracy this time around.”

    “Sure, they wanted Christie to stick around and have probably led people in that direction in the DR”….

    You know what I don’t see? I don’t see a contradiction in those two sentences.

    • hogwild

      Like I said the one place I have a problem with production is in editing when they have America voting to give someone a power or advantage the kind of edits they get can play a role in how the vote goes.

    • Robin

      That is great AIO 7. Perhaps I have watched too many programs ABOUT reality TV. Perhaps I have become a nihilist, makes me believe that if God doesn’t keep you from going home after 4 times in a row on the block… that only leaves human intervention. All depends on what kind and how much…. is it live or is it memorex?

      • ElaineB

        I don’t think God is invested in who stays or goes in BB. As for human intervention, yes. HGs, who have been cooped up with strangers for several months, can be persuaded, by each other and/or the DR.

    • Mel

      What I was saying (poorly, haha) is that theyve obviously meddled when they thought they could sway someone to keep someone longer, someone who makes for good episodes. However, I don’t think they care if that person stays to the end and I especially dont think they care who wins the game. (There have been a few rare exceptions when I believe they’ve cared who won in the end) In this case, they’ll take more grief if Christie and Tommy are the F2. For ratings, they’d be better with Cliff. They like to cast only 1 older person so they’d like to be able to say “see, an older cast member can win .” I’m not saying they want Cliff to win either, it’s just got better spin for them in the future if he did.

  16. hogwild

    Feeds down for puppies again veto? We shall see.

  17. Mary

    Would like Cliff or Nicole to win the next HOH and put up Holly and Tommy, tell them I just wanted you to get the whole BB experience since you haven’t seen the block yet.

    • AIO_7

      Cliff will be lucky if he is still there. He could get blindsided this week.

      • Mary

        I know, which stinks. Know many don’t like him, I do. For being one of the first ones to see the block and still be there is impressive. Realize he made some deals to stay, and ruffled a few feathers, he seems to understand the game more than most.

      • NKogNeeTow

        Agree Mary. The only problem I’ve had with him lately is how he seems to be doing what Jess has been doing all along…rolling up on people, sitting down and insinuating himself into their conversations. This is something that has always annoyed me. Other than that, I really like him and am also impressed with how far he’s gotten and hope he can make it to the end.

        BTW, love the new lamb 🙂

      • Mel

        Andy in BB15 was the only person I ever saw do that successfully.

    • Robin

      I would love to see Nicole get it. It would be hard for her, but she has just about cut her baby teeth . Time for a bigger bite!

    • Tam

      That sounds marvelous is my dream…..Manifest, manifest, manifest…….

  18. Robin

    Looks like Cliff is up as we anticipated. If T & C find a way to save Jess…. it would be too sad!
