Daily Feeds Recaps

Day 86 - Thursday 9/12/19

Cliff and Nicole revved up gametalk first thing, from their beds. Holly was a certain goner but after last night's chaos with Jackson's eavesdropping and subsequent lie, tables turned and as of this morning, Cliff and Nicole flipped back to planning to evict Tommy. But first Nicole sat down with Tommy, with Cliff present and Holly eavesdropping, to ask if he'd told Jackson about his offer to throw the HOH comp, and Tommy said no, "that's a big fat lie." (True, Tommy did make the offer to Cliff and Nicole, but he never told Jackson about it.) Nicole said she wanted to get everything out in the open and she called a house meeting at 11.08am, saying it was something she'd always wanted to do. Unfortunately for us, that coincided with the usual Thursday HOH lockdown for tech rehearsal and feeds didn't come back as they usually do, so we'll have to rely on later retells to find out how it went.

Meanwhile a surprise: tonight's HOH comp will be on feeds! Sign up to watch live if you haven't already! This is unusual at this stage, but so is the endgame schedule. Julie should clarify for us tonight if they're doing a "special" (taped) eviction next week like usual, or if fourth place will go out on Thursday like any normal week. Hopefully they'll also revert to letting us watch Part 1 on feeds, especially after withholding today's shenanigans from us.

Julie announced the day had been drama and told us we'd see that on Sunday's show (edited version, of course). They did recap Tommy's offer to throw the HOH, Jackson eavesdropping on his retell of that, and deciding to create a lie around it. Tommy was evicted 2-0, he came out with a cartwheel, and told Julie it was indeed a lie (but you knew that already). Julie announced next week as normal, including live eviction on Thursday, breaking the VERY longstanding tradition of After Dark morning taping, taped eviction, and a 36-hour feeds block. She sent Cliff, Nicole, Holly out to their HOH comp titled Crash and Turn, in BB Stunt Camp setting, complete with flames. They had to stand on discs that would spin and revolve through a "stunts" setting with wrecked cars, and foam trucks crashing into them periodically. She started them at 6.53pm, feeds came on just after 7pm and Cliff was off, and then Holly was off, giving Nicole the win in under 10 minutes.

Jackson asked Holly if she told Cliff and Nicole she'd throw "the veto" and Holly nodded, saying "it was conditional, they came to me with it." That may have been a veto/HOH wording mixup by Jackson, or she may have offered both? There was a handshake glimpsed behind Julie during the show, with Cliff and Nicole shaking Holly's hand, so that may have been what that was about. Holly told Nicole "I kept my word" after she dropped, and later confirmed to Jackson she had indeed thrown it. The final four hugged, rehashed the day and the season again, and did their usual kumbaya session. Nicole confessed she'd told Jessica about the deal that Jessica blabbed about all over town the night before Kat was evicted, and that she was a self-proclaimed "megafan" since BB10. When Nicole and Holly wandered off, Cliff and Jackson shook on a deal they'd "made tonight" that they'd both cut Holly if either of them wins the final veto, and they'd go to finale with Nicole. Cliff reported that to Nicole, who was fine with the idea.

Later Cliff and Jackson super-shmoozed each other over how much they want to be in finals together and either would be honored to lose to each other. Jackson broke down to Holly about having screwed over Tommy, saying he loved him, he's such a great guy, and "I never wanted to hurt anybody in this game, I never wanted to make it personal, I never wanted to see someone cry because of me." Well quite a number of hamsters have cried because of him, including Holly who was comforting him, several times, but details, details. He eyed the camera at one point, and she said none of today's mess would have happened if Cliff and Nicole hadn't wavered on their deal.

Nicole hollered about her room at 10.45pm and the quartet marched up there for the last HOH room of the season. Nicole got photos of her sisters and her doggie, unicorn pegasus socks, a holographic unicorn hat, more nail polish, an owl onesie from Pop, Seagram's drinks, the usual excess of snacks and candy and cereal, music by Eric Church (via group request), and a letter from sister Kayla. Since nominations are basically pointless and they were all exhausted after a late stressful night and stressful day, nobody lingered long. Nicole reread her letter aloud, praised her family and Cliff, and talked about being happy to be guaranteed final three, getting her HOH robe, and not going to jury house. And she said she hoped she has some supporters out here, that she's been doing her best, and she apologized to viewers who might have a problem with her flip-flopping or her votes. Jackson sobbed some more to Holly before they switched to their cuddly slurpy mode. They regathered again later in HOH for another round of snacks, analysis, what-if, backgammon, and kumbaya.

Cliff told us in his bedtime monologue that he'd take Nicole to finals if he wins the final HOH, despite his agreement with Jackson. Jackson's side of that agreement may have been just as hollow.

Day 87 - Friday 9/13/19

Feeds went to puppies and kitties around 9am, maybe for the tiny table or maybe some event was scheduled before they knew they'd have yesterday's drama for Sunday's show - we'll find out. I'm pleased they brought back Puppycam and Kittycam this season, it's far superior for scheduled downtime than running Jeff segments or prior season episodes. And a reminder, all the feeds anipals are adoptables from Rancho Coastal Humane Society of Encinitas, CA. Visit them or your local shelter to find your new best friend!

Feeds came back at 1.23pm and the tiny table for four had been installed, and they'd done a competition about changes made to the habitat. Jackson won and got $10,000 for that, and Ovi had been there. They said it was fun, but Jackson said he'd rather have had family videos than cash. He also said he hoped that winning that cash wouldn't cost him more money (referring to finalist prizes, since that's the same amount as the third place bonus). Cliff was upset, and he later told Nicole (again) about his and Jackson's final three deal, and that Jackson had agreed to take him to final two, but that he (Cliff) would definitely take Nicole if it's up to him, as he'd told us last night. Cliff had a check-in with Jackson to clarify their deals, and Cliff told him he'd take Nicole to final two if it's up to him. Jackson reported to Holly, who seemed surprised to hear Jackson had agreed to take Cliff, and he said Cliff had backtracked on their deal, but he'd take Holly anyway if it's up to him. They agreed they'd boot Cliff if either wins veto. In HOH, Nicole muttered to herself "sketchy, sketchy, sketchy." Then Jackson/Holly and Cliff/Nicole met separately to discuss the other duo, and deals, and blah blah blah.

Nicole held pre-nom meetings just for fun and for the formality, because they all knew Jackson and Holly would be her noms, and they all knew noms don't even matter at this stage since everything comes down to the veto. They gathered to stare at the screen after the ceremony, being the first time Holly's photo had appeared there. Not long after, they all went horizontal again. The only noteworthy item after that was Holly telling Cliff and Nicole that she'd told Jackson she will gun for the veto (her earlier offer to throw it was canceled by mutual agreement), and that she'd cut Jackson if she wins it, and Jackson told the same to Cliff. Holly and Jackson compared retells with each other with glee and a fistbump because of course it was BS. And they agreed not to "oversell" it to Cliff and Nicole.

Day 88 - Saturday 9/14/19

The day started like most others lately, hamsters coming together, separating, and coming together again. Nicole and Cliff both held monologues with us, Nicole saying she's going to win this veto and have a say in who goes to finale with her and Cliff, and reassuring herself and us that it'll be her and Cliff in the finals chairs, and Cliff saying he has been and will stay true to his character, and predicting some out here will love him and some will hate him, and both expressing shock and awe that they made it this far. Basically the same spiels from all four of them they've been running for a week or two now, as they and we waited for the final veto comp.

Jackson won the final veto. Feeds were down just shy of five hours for their comp, which was title Win and You're In, and done in individually timed runs. They had questions about season events (never won an HOH, didn't get a punishment in space veto, etc) and they had to shoot balls with a slingshot to knock out faces or cutouts of hamsters that filled the criteria for each question. If they got anything wrong, the round was reset and they had to fetch all their balls and start over. Cliff said he had trouble hitting the targets and Nicole said running for the balls was the worst part. They had one hour each to complete their runs and I didn't catch Jackson's time but they finished in age order: Jackson, Nicole 2 minutes behind him, Holly 17 minutes, Cliff 38 minutes. Cliff narrated his run with Cliffisms and encouraging words, Nicole said she talked to the cutouts and cussed up a storm when she missed, Holly said nothing but used her inhaler a lot, and Jackson said he felt light-headed and almost had a panic attack.

Shortly after feeds returned, Jackson was called to Diary and Holly met him at the door. She said something I couldn't catch, and he snapped at her saying "this is happiness Holls, this is me being fuckin happy! Shit!" and he turned away from her. She said "okay, I love you" as he went into Diary, seeming angry. Holly told Cliff and Nicole "everything's okay, I don't know if he's happy or mad, I'm the one going home, I should be crying." He came out soon after and went to pray, and when Holly tried to approach him again he snapped at her again to give him a minute, and he said to himself he's going to finale with Holly. Then they entwined around each other, like they do, and celebrated their win and road to finale. At the same time Cliff told Nicole he thought Jackson would keep his word and evict Holly, but if not and he (Cliff) gets played, he'll shake Jackson's hand and go out with his head held high.

Comp retells gradually began to wind down and they reverted to their usual patterns of season rehashes and food prep. I'm not expecting much later but if something interesting or unusual or funny does happen, I'll add it here.

Day 89 - Sunday 9/15/19

Morning was quiet. Cliff slept late, still under the weather after yesterday's comp, and Nicole talked about her life and her self-discovery in there, and she narrated her morning, her breakfast, her pool game, and her escape from a cicada harassing her. Jackson and Holly cuddled and talked about their position in there, and Jackson ran his as-expected answer to Tommy's expected juror question about his Big Lie. He also said to Holly "you and I, we weren't really doing that much manipulating, the only thing I have is shit with Tommy." He probably should include their current lies to Cliff and Nicole about this week and next but he didn't, at least in this round. Then he snapped at her for not wanting to respond to the "change your batteries" reminder because "there's only four of us! Don't get mad at me, I don't want either one of us to get a penalty vote!" They changed their batteries, and went for a "shower."

Ants were discovered in the kitchen, atop the fridge, not surprisingly swarming in the candy they'd left there. Hamsters were disgusted but Team Ants aficionados cheered. Jackson told Nicole he'll be cutting Cliff tomorrow, and said it was because he'd been planning to go against their F4 at the Tommy/Holly vote, plus a lot of words about being a man of his word "until it's not reciprocated." Cliff arrived so he didn't get to the actual words but it was obvious where he was going, and he did say "this is the final three right here." Nicole went inside saying "it's my own fault, it's my own fault." Jackson followed her in and they went to HOH to discuss/explain/argue it out, where they were joined by Holly. Nicole grew frustrated and upset, saying "I'm officially the dodo bird that put a showmance in final three." Jackson and Holly swore they'd never wavered on their F4 deal (lie), and Jackson told her about the deals Cliff made this week without her, and offered to give Cliff a warning before his veto speech tomorrow if Nicole wanted him to. Nicole went to Diary, and Jackson and Holly went to work with spray and traps to attempt to counter Team Ants, and they tossed all the candy and snacks from atop the fridge. Jackson then cleaned out the inside of the fridge, tossing most of what was in there.

Nicole told Cliff about Jackson's plans to drop a bombshell speech at the veto meeting and cut Cliff at the vote. She said she'd told Jackson and Holly she wouldn't tell him, but figured the worst that could happen would be she gets cut on finale and that was going to happen anyway. Cliff said he wasn't surprised, and it was okay, and he half suspected as much. Cliff then went to Jackson to say Nicole had told him, and they talked in the living room while Nicole watched from HOH on the spyscreen and ranted to herself. Jackson ran his loops about man of his word etc, and Cliff ran his about it's a game, and they agreed to disagree over who betrayed whom first and why. Cliff then went to retell to Nicole, and Jackson to Holly. Incidentally, there were a lot of references to Cliff's health and "we can't talk about yesterday" so it seems he definitely had problems at the veto comp, maybe heat-related, but he's okay.

They got tie-dye kits last night and decided to do that today, but gametalk revelations came along and tie-dye still hadn't happened as of 10pm. The not-really-Snapchat goggles came out, maybe for the last time. They posed for that and Nicole took pics of random things around the habitat. They got Jenga tonight, giant industrial size, and they all played that for one tower's worth. During that game, Jackson hollered "noooooo!!" from the pantry and the others guessed correctly that he'd dropped and killed a watermelon. He salvaged some of it, and had Holly clean up the rest. Retells of the day's events carried on, in solo monologues to cameras and in pairs, and occasionally with all of them. They all ran the usual loops: it's game/not personal, it's hard being there, it's almost over, they love each other, they're happy they got this far, and blah blah blah. Nicole was hard on herself at times, but said she'll go for the final comps so she can sit in one of those finalist chairs next week.

Won: $5,000; 4 days Poison Ivy; 1 week 6 days BB Explorer
HOH 1 - Veto 2 - Noms 2/0/0 - HN 1

He was often loud, boisterous, and extra showy, with his high kicks and loud laugh, and he visibly came alive every night when After Dark started. But he was also everyone's friend and confidante, and a shoulder when they were upset, and he was even official mediator for a week or two to ensure accurate retells of tricky convos. His trademark 'sincere gaze' when listening to troubles became ridiculous and comical for most out here, but he made his fellow hamsters feel comfortable and loved, and that's highly valuable stock in BB. He was hindered by Christie and his relationship with her, and then sent out because of Jackson's Big Lie. Along the way he taught them a dance, he directed a horror movie, and he did his week-long run-around task, including its suit with its heavy helmet, without complaint.

Won: Whacktivity 3 Panic; 4 days Poison Ivy; Field Trip nominee
HOH 1 - Veto 0 - Noms 3/0/2 - HN 1

She played the hell out of the game and drove it for most of the season, but she was too mouthy, too busy, and too obnoxious to pull it off. She came in with a lot of half-baked new age rhetoric and she made sure everyone heard about it daily, but she didn't understand it, she certainly didn't put it into practice, and she had no time for anyone else's beliefs. She quickly became known for her nasty eating habits, nonstop talking, and constant crying, and she panicked whenever she felt a shadow of a hint of danger in the game, and then she blamed PMS for that. Her pre-existing friendship with Tommy was the one secret she never spilled, and she double-dipped outside every alliance she was in. She won a valuable power but rendered it useless by telling everyone about it, and she was put on the block twice by viewers.

Won: 1 week pie smashing
HOH 1 - Veto 1 - Noms 3/0/0 - HN 1

She came in perky and sassy, which didn't last long, but pretty soon she was the reaction queen, providing facial expressions, gifs, and screencaps for every occasion. She was never really plugged into the game and liiiiiike she was like exhausting to like listen to when she talked like game? Her confusion became more apparent as the weeks dragged on, making her a liability for her teamies Kat, Cliff, and Nicole. But she was often fun especially with Kat, and Kemi and Nicole in their RV room. She had a dedicated feed for the big Nick versus Christie Taco Tuesday fight and her faces during that were superb, as was her squawky fall from the endurance wall comp. She kept busy much of the time: she ran the show days hair salon, she was the designated DIY chiropractor, and she gave lengthy massages that they loved. She didn't do a lot game-wise but she broke up the Jacks and she got one gone during her HOH week, and that was huge for them and us.

Won: $5,000; 1 week America's Prankster
HOH 1 - Veto 1 - Noms 2/0/0 - HN 0

He came in looking good, being a mental health therapist and bashing Matt and his cereal, but it didn't take long for us to forget all that. He talked way too much and way too fast, and he seemed intent on turning against allies for no reason. All that got him targeted relatively early but he won a veto and worked his way back into the good graces of most of them. He was often highly inappropriate, between regularly humping Tommy, ogling and cuddling Analyse while showmancing Bella, rubbing his feet on both of them, and talking in explicit detail about anything sexual. He was shocked to get zinged about his hair when he'd been singing his barber's praises all season, but he was usually able to laugh at himself, including his famous '30 seconds' story about his first time doing the deed with Bella.

Won: 1 week chicken/3 days eggs
HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Noms 1/0/0 - HN 0

She literally griped about Ovi when feeds started and planned to do makeup tutorials with Holly. That never happened but soon she shared her big news about doing the deed with Jack, and that's about all she did from then on, so she featured big on the sex tally (with and without their sex stool). She didn't win comps and she didn't gametalk much, but she griped a lot and made lots of threats to go off on whoever she was mad at on a given day. She was literally horizontal a lot so #LeaningSis became a fun hashtag game. One day Jack made an effort to spend time with her outside of bed and they screamed around playing pranks and hiding, including several rounds in the pantry trash can, once with the ultimate lean. When Jack left she socialized a little more, and she didn't complain too much about being a chicken or making eggs, but she literally never made them again.

Won: Hawaii trip
HOH 0 - Veto 1 - Noms 2/1/0 - HN 1

She came in confusing, telling one interview she'd watched for years and another that she just heard of the show. Then on the pre-season audio leak, Christie said she'd put Kat OTB because she was paranoid and annoying. Then feeds started and Kat was a basketcase, crying and freaking out. We found out some of that was due to Jackson's hump 'n dump, and when she wasn't evicted she settled into being the most entertaining of this bunch. She was random and funny, often using self-deprecating humor and making it work, along with ongoing gags about 'conspiring bitches' and Brett. She played a rat floater game but she didn't do it well, and there were a half dozen other rat floaters to maneuver around. She was outside most alliances but infiltrated with the best of them, and her game was great fun to watch, though very, very messy.

Won: Whacktivity 2 Chaos; 24 hrs Angry Alien
HOH 1 - Veto 0 - Noms 2/0 - HN 0

He was cocky and arrogant, and he and Jackson didn't want to talk to anyone who wasn't cool or pretty enough for them. He had a vendetta against Kemi for no apparent reason and he made more than a few racially charged comments about her and David. Julie grilled him about some of those as well as a comment about Bella, like she hasn't done to anyone since BB15 Aaryn. His HOH letter was from his dogsitter, and he called a house meeting to announce nobody could gametalk with the three Camp Comebackers (but everyone did, including him). He referred to bedmate Analyse as his 'game piece' early on to Jackson, and he had a multi-way attraction thing going with Christie and Tommy. He was tipped off about some of his behavior and tried to do better but it was a transparent effort.

Won: Fiji trip
HOH 0 - Veto 2 - Noms 1/0 - HN 1
He was the first outsider to learn the Eight (and the Six) were things, and he seemed content to be their ninth (and seventh) rather than taking that info to the rest of the strays so they could organize and counter. He started strong, winning the first two vetos, but his luck went downhill after that. He planned a nominee speech outing Christie's shady dealings but he blabbed and it got back to Christie and the rest. But that then led to the huge fight before his eviction show that tore the Jacks apart and blew up the Six, so kudos for that. Never mind he could have used that mess to his advantage and maybe stayed. He was a DIARY SHOUTER, he had lots of goofy (sometimes inappropriate) stories, and he was liked by most, most of the time.

Won: Nothing
HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Noms 0/1 - HN 0
She seemed promising in her pre-season interviews but it turned out she hadn't really done the homework recruits should do, and she was quickly in over her head. She blabbed about most every convo she had, and she blew up alliances almost as soon as they were formed. But along the way she mixed and drank gross concoctions including hot dog water and mayo, she told some funny stories and some sad ones, and she and Nick fell in love (once she finally got him to stop lusting for Analyse).

Won: Revival to Camp Comeback Day 23
HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Noms 1/0 - HN 0
She was targeted by Jack and Jackson for no reason we know of, other than naming them as potential nominees in the first days. From then on they were obsessed with her, spreading that obsessive hate to their teamies, and it was so stupid it would have been comical if it weren't so ugly. She kept it classy despite all that, and it's good she had Nicole as a sounding board (and genuine friend) to vent her frustrations. I just wish she and Kat didn't hate each other as they would have made a superb comedy duo.

Won: Whacktivity 1 Nightmare (unused); Revival to Camp Comeback Day 15
HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Noms 0/1 - HN 0
He was a prime example of BB book smarts not necessarily equating to BB street smarts, and he didn't help himself any by being too loud and busy, nor by snitching on alliances to those same alliance members. Analyse accused him of being creepy with her but there was no evidence of that. He's done great things out here and will undoubtedly do more, so it was probably for the best that he got out of that snakepit sooner than later.

Won: First 2 weeks in sequester; Revival to Camp Comeback Day 15
HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Noms 0/0 - HN 0
He got the rawest of BB deals, the first night boot, and then he was locked in a hotel room for two more weeks. He showed a quick and accurate read on everything when he re-entered the habitat and was probably the only one of the Comebackers with potential to do some real damage if he'd won the comp to re-enter the game, but it wasn't to be. His and Kat's flirtation was fun to watch. He could and should have been a contender but instead he got the boot twice, and without any noms or votes to evict.

Big Brother 21 SEASON FAQ
Day 1 Move-in was June 19
Day 7 CBS premiere was June 25
Day 8 Feeds began June 26
Day 99 Finale is September 25

Feeds are streamed by CBS, and Flashback is accessible via All Access subscription. Call 888-274-5343 for account help, including cancellation.

*Effective July 10* Air shows on CBS (Global in Canada) are Sundays 8pm, Wednesdays 9pm, eviction Thursdays 9pm.

Big Brother After Dark on Pop TV will be every night midnight to 3am (an hour later on Wednesdays and Thursdays). The aired blocks are live (or recorded earlier the same night, depending on your cable provider).

The CBS app (by CBS Interactive) plays BB air shows and other CBS shows, as well as feeds, or you can use your browser to watch feeds on mobile devices. The same All Access link used to subscribe will lead to the feeds viewing page if you're already signed up.

BB21 finalist prizes are the same: $500k for the winner and $50k for 2nd place. Stipend for the others to be confirmed if/when they mention it on feeds, likely $1,000 per week again. Top finishers get bonuses again this season: $10,000 for 3rd place, $7,500 for 4th, $5,000 for 5th.

The habitat has 94 HD cameras (no change) and 113 microphones (no change).

The recorded in-house announcements are the voice of producer Don Wollman. He and Julie Chen are the only staffers who have been there since Big Brother 1.

and other pets. Never put it on or near a television, radio or hi-fi, or a fridge."
