Big Brother 21 – Thursday Recap



Good morning all! It’s a short one today but all the fun stuff will happen later. The best part of the post eviction drama would’ve been when the feeds were down last night so that was a bummer.  Last night was unexpected or at least some of it was. I didn’t expect Cliff to win his way back into the house and  I certainly didn’t expect him to win the HOH so congratulations to Cliff. As the older person, he had to avoid being the first one out, win his way back into the game and now is in a position of power.  My wishing it wasn’t Cliff who got back in is no reflection on him.  He smoked them all in the comp, he earned it and I’m happy for him.

There was definitely scrambling going on after the live show but we didn’t see much of it. The 6 Shooters were trying to do some damage control after they blindsided Nick and Bella. Here’s Nick the moment Cliff was evicted:


Everybody was lying to everybody last night. Christie was saying they tried to express to Nick how much they wanted Cliff out but it seemed like he didn’t want to hear it. (Not true) Tommy used the approach of hinting that they trusted Nick but was afraid Bella would talk. (Not the reason for the blindside but obviously true)  Bella and Jack had a bit of a testy conversation about not talking game with outsiders but were still saying they were together. Nick said he wasn’t upset about the vote and wanted the 9 to remain a group. The HOH comp hadn’t been played yet so it was impossible to know how much Nick was lying.

Now that Cliff is hoh, he said he wants the outsiders to work together. He told Nicole, Jess and Kat they were safe and said no one that’s been going otb has to worry this week.

Cliff wants to go after Jack, Christie, Tommy or Sis. He knows Jackson and Holly are a couple but is the least worried about them. For now, that’s his plan but he has several obstacles. The first one is Kat. They think she’s with them but she is telling everything to the 6 Shooters. The second is Christie’s power. Luckily, the entire house knows about it and it could come into play this week. Christie got mad at Jack for mentioning it with Nicole in the room. She ended up explaining it to Nicole. (like she didn’t tell everyone else in the house?) Cliffs third problem is Jess because she doesn’t have a clue what’s going on or who is with who even tho it’s being spelled out for her all the time. Kat will tell things on purpose and Jess may do it on accident.

Tommy put the most work in with Nicole as to why they kept her.


Jess really trusts Christie which will bite her in the ass soon.

Jackson came up with the brilliant plan of being a pawn and having Cliff get rid of Nick. He wants Christie to use her power to make it happen. (Don’t ask me???) Jackson thought telling Cliff how he’d be a hero for getting rid of someone the entire house is after was a good idea. (That big head holds a tiny brain) Why would Cliff get rid of the house target?

Christie did a terrible job of explaining to Cliff why they evicted him over Nicole.

Christie is sure she’s going otb and Jack is simply in a mood over finally not having control of something in the game.


Sis said she hated Cliff with her usual venom.

Kat’s already reported back to Jackson who Cliff wants to target. She knows she’s safe this week  and she told him something about this being a good time to tell him that he’s bad for her game. That was actually pretty funny since he did it to her.

Since Cliff is a long time fan of BB, he obviously knows all about doing the storage room dance so he gave us one:


The CBS interviews with Kemi, Ovi and David are on the site now. I haven’t seen them yet so I don’t have any info to share.

Today could be interesting so check back with Steve later for all the details.

Have a great Friday.

    I’m in bizzaro world..Cliff is HoH? I hvnt seen BBAD yet, this is first thing I’ve read..I’m so glad none of the deplorable nine won..
    Thank you Mel…you are always appreciated

  2. Minkie

    Oh my goodness!! What a glorious Friday! Hope Cliff sends the 6 shooters into an absolute frenzy. I hang my hopes on Cliff to turn this house upside down this week. Please please please make it a good one!

  3. ElaineB

    Thx Mel! Yes, Congrats to Cliff! I am just glad that no one from the 6, 8, 9 groups got HOH. Phew! Hopefully some interesting discussions ahead.

  4. Katheryn

    Thanks Mel. How exactly does the power that Christi won work?

    • Helen

      She can change POV to diamond POV at veto meeting..
      For example…Christie and tommy OTB…say jack wins POV…Christie can make it a diamond POV and Jack will name the replacement instead of cliff (HOH) ..
      Whoever is holding POV would name the replacement…instead of HOH..

      • Katheryn

        Thank you Helen for the clarification. I hope none of the secret 8 win POV then

      • amareels

        Thanks Helen. Can you tell me how AD’s power works, too?

      • Holan

        Jack’s power isn’t as good. When they pull names for veto, if he doesn’t like what was pulled, he says they have to redraw names from the box. So, it’s just a redo for what is already a random draw.

  5. hogwild

    The good news is it seems like Cliff knows who has his back and who just put a knife in it hopefully he makes a smart move and doesn’t become an honorary member of last years hive alliance.

  6. Painter1

    Grats to Cliff,now let’s hope he makes a decent move. With everyone now thinking he’s a comp beast(thier words) he really has to throw floating out the window.

  7. Joy

    Wow, I just finished watching Julie’s interview with David, Ovi and Kemi. They were amazing!!! I would be so proud of those three as a parent. I would be so embarrassed if I were the parent of any of the hateful 8 group…

  8. danmtruth

    Mel thanks for doing a nice job of sorting it out As much as Kat has been growing on me Her running back to Christie and Jack is bothersome As she was breathlessly talking to them The two were very dismissive of her Christie knows she is not going anywhere this week As she is protected by her power She is looking for ways not to use it That is the big flaw in JJ Snacksons problem Christie could decide loosing him is an option
    Cliff gives off his aww schucks image We will see and hear just how good of a player he is Now with Cliffs love for talking to the camera we should get a front row seat to his plans Will Cliff not care about Christie power and force her to use it Not sure if he cares who goes Jack Christie or Tommy Not sure what he thinks of Bella and Nick Perhaps to lessen the target on himself he takes them one of them out to play nice with the six In an effort to live a little longer

  9. Nancy

    So excuse my memory lapse..Kat is working with Christie and AD..shes just that little fly spy buzzing around..do I hv it?

  10. Avatar

    Does Kat not realize that she is one of the expendables (which honestly is way too cool of a name)…remember the movies after all… I know she doesn’t seem to care about playing the game…but she’s just going to lessen her time on TV by tattling everything to Camp Ogre.

    • hogwild

      No I really don’t think she days if these seven would get together and form an alliance I would name it lucky seven the name the underdog kids in Stephen Kings IT called themselves.

    I might have missed this if it has been mentioned already…….but with the Diamond POV, when, exactly, is Crazy person supposed to announce she is using it? If she’s on the block and she activates it, does the POV holder HAVE to use it? What if she activates it, thinking it saves her, but then the POV holder says, nah, I’m not using the Veto? Can they do that? Just thinking ahead and dreaming……

    • AIO_7

      Don’t ask me. I think it’s just another of those BB “powers” that they like to keep confusing that they should just do away with. All of them.

    • Avatar

      This power is lame UNLESS the holder of the power wins the regular POV. Then the holder not only removes someone, they also name the replacement.

      If someone else is the holder of the regular POV, I don’t see any way that you could guarantee that they would use it if you activated the Diamond power then you just wasted your power.

      I agree with the earlier comment that this power will likely expire without ever being used.

    I really hope they put AD up this week. Watching how they treated Ovi, kicking him out of the HoH room like they rule the roost was pretty sickening. Yeah he was dorky, but one of the nicest HGs.

  14. Mimi Ryan

    Bat Crap Crazy Christy IMO will most likely, like Ovi, Like a lot of Survivor peeps “don’t want to use it too soon, or miss the immediate opportunity completely” & it dies on the vine it was on. AD offering to go up as a pawn to “prove” how indestructible he is in the is game, the power house, the master mind, the enforcer, etc. . . . . . . Just might have to change his brain chemistry and rethink how things are actually going. Since Cliff Notes did win CC & then deftly took the HoH – I’m Really glad it was a CC that won Hoh rather than getting outsed immediately after coming back into the game. One could see where Production tailor made that comp for Cliff Notes. Yeap, I said it. WingNut Nic – He repeated say, “your over thinking things.” That is probably the only thing worth saying in this game. Well, there’s plenty of drama screams in the house & paranoia. Let the game begin yet again. AD OTB with Ratella, DPoV saves AD, then Ratella & WingNut Nick OTB & Ratella goes home. The actual scenario obviously will be played out, along with a potential DDB Eviction next week 😉 Cheers

    Just saw the extended interview with the 3 evicted HG First I felt Julie did a good job with her question All 3 gave thoughtful intelligent answers
    David was cast and did not understand how the game worked On the first night he was amazed that people would lie That if someone (jackson) cooked chicken poorly No one said anything Instead ate it and said how good it was This surprised him Just tell him he cant cook Despite him being able to see the couples in the house His lack of understanding how the game worked doomed him After hearing his i interview im glad he did not get bavk in
    Ovi truly bounded with Cliff He has a good understanding if the game but did not know how to use it
    Kemi was a different case she calls herself a superfan even tho she has only started watching for a year It was telling when she said it took her a long time telling the difference between being disrespectful and knowing how to stay calm and not feed into it She also was a big fan of Cliff Was very hurt bye Bella Understand how she tells a lie long enough the lie becomes her truth So Bella can proceed with a clear consciences

  16. Helen

    Are they letting housepets sleep a lot later this year or does it just seem that way?

  17. Avatar

    Does anyone know what the HoH comp was? They were all dressed for an endurance competition so I’m shocked Cliff would have out endured them all.

  18. Alda

    Does anyone remember what AD’s power is all about?

  19. AIO_7

    Hank Hill being HoH makes me wish he still had Ovi in the house.

  20. AIO_7

    Hank, put her up and make her use up her power …
