The final four nominations have come in within the Big Brother 21 house — not that there is any element of surprise to them.
In the end, head of household Nicole decided to nominate Jackson and Holly, which she was always going to do — the only other option was Cliff and she was never going to do that. The only thing that matters this week is the final four Veto Competition, and rest assured that there is going to be some ridiculous scenarios going on around it right now.
Let’s start, of course, with Cliff seemingly thinking (or convincing himself) that Jackson would take him to the final three over Holly, just because he agreed to do that. The two carved out a deal leading into the Tommy vote, one that also dictates that Jackson would take Cliff to the final two. Cliff, however, had to clarify to Jackson today that he would take Nicole to final two, but would go ahead and take Jackson to final three. Jackson acted like he was okay with that. After this, though, Jackson went and told Holly that Cliff was already changing his story on how far Cliff would take him.
Meanwhile, Holly also was approached by Cliff earlier today, making it so that Holly doesn’t have to throw the final four Veto as previously determined — yet, if she does win it, the terms of the deal mean that she has to dictate Jackson … which she is obviously not going to do. All of this is ridiculous, to say the least, and it’s only going to get more ridiculous over time. Holly also talked to Cliff, who suggested that Jackson was going to take him over Holly.
What is Cliff trying to do in the middle of all of this? It feels almost like he is being the world’s worst mob boss, getting everyone to kiss a ring that isn’t actually there. He can’t convince Holly and Jackson to turn on each other, and nor should he think that he is going to. The best thing he could maybe do at this point is try to lay groundwork so that one of them will take him over Nicole at final two, and that’s it.
