When Jackson Michie won the Final 5 Head of Household, he never imagined in a million years the week would end with his showmance partner Holly Allen going up on the block … and possibly being evicted. But that’s exactly what happened thanks to Nicole Anthony winning the power of Veto in Wednesday’s episode and removing her ride-or-die Cliff Hogg from the chopping block. Michie had no other chance but to nominate Holly as a replacement, meaning either she or Tommy Bracco will be going home on Thursday.
“My fate is now in Cliff and Nicole’s hands,” Holly declared in the Diary Room following the Veto meeting. “They are the only votes this week. I trust their character. I trust their morals. But at the end of the day this is a game and they could change their minds to benefit their game. And that realization is terrifying.” Holly was the last of the Final 5 to never see the block, but now will her first time as a nominee result in a one-way ticket to the jury house?
Nicole was the unlikely winner of the BB Comics Veto challenge, giving her a second comp victory following her HOH triumph during the double eviction. “I did it!” she shouted to the camera. “I know it’s only Final 4, but it’s frickin’ Final 4. I’m just so proud and I honestly don’t think anybody that’s still in this house wants it as bad as I do. I see myself in those Final 2 chairs. I’m living the dream and I’m hoping it comes true in the end because I want it so frickin’ bad.”
After Nicole presented her plan of backdooring Holly to Tommy, the Broadway dancer filled with hope for the first time since his best friend Christie Murphy was evicted from the house. “Nicole told me that she wants to keep me in this game,” he said. “That’s the hope that I need. That’s the fire I need to keep going. I’ll do whatever it takes to convince Cliff and Nicole that they need to keep me in this game instead of Holly.”
So who will be evicted from the “Big Brother” house on Thursday night: Tommy or Holly? That person will immediately join Jack Matthews, Kathryn Dunn, Analyse Talavera, Nick Maccarone, Jessica Milagros and Christie Murphy as the seventh jury member of “BB21.”
