Daily Feeds Recaps

Day 93 - Thursday 9/19/19

Cliff had his final Cliff Notes session, recapping his summer and talking about what a great experience it had been. He said he hadn't liked all the yelling last week and he could have broken his word, but he'd been trying to stick to his deals, and protect Nicole. (Keeping Tommy would have been better for her, and both of them, and he wasn't protecting her much in his convos without her.) He said he might vote for Jackson after all, and I'm not sure if he said it this morning but I believe he told us last night that he might let Jackson know before he goes that all the jury tampering threats were just a ploy in hopes he could get Jackson to keep him tonight. Part 1 should begin after tonight's show but unfortunately probably won't be on feeds. The last time it was on feeds was BB17, and until then letting us watch had been a long-standing tradition, but that was then and sadly, this is now.

Despite Julie telling us last week that tonight's eviction would be live, it was in fact taped a couple hours early, BB Canada style. After too many recaps of the many repetitious convos of the week, they did a jury segment with the last four of them rolling in one by one to watch tv and look like they were making a cheap resort ad. Nick and Kat were extra friendly, and the show made a point of having most of the others comment about that. Were they punking us maybe? Who knows (or cares, really). Tommy and Christie told the jury their history, so now everyone knows and that reveal won't have to take up precious time on the already too-crowded finale. Finally Julie got around to current business: Jackson veto'd himself off the block and Cliff went up by default, Holly and Cliff gave predictable speeches, and Jackson gave a lengthy one with all his loops of the past week before he evicted Cliff. Julie announced the viewer favorite vote was open, which of course also meant the worst part of the season on BB Twitter.

The credits rolled as the final three cracked open their traditional champagne, and then things got confusing. A second audience was brought in after the eviction audience left, likely a paid/stunt audience as there were no tickets shown for a second taping. That second crowd saw Julie sit down onstage with Kaycee, Tyler, JC to go over the season. That will air on Sunday's clipdown show. Whether that will be in addition to or in place of the traditional guided memories over brunch by the hamsters remains to be seen. That memories meal is usually brunch on Friday morning. Whether Julie sent our current final three to start their Part 1 after that, or whether they'll do that much later tonight like last year, is as yet unknown as the feeds are still down as of 8.30pm. Interestingly, Julie said Part 1 will play out "in its entirety" on Sunday's show. Does that just mean the winner will be revealed? Because the only comps that play out in their "entirety" on the CBS shows are the live ones tacked at the end of eviction shows. Of course the Part 1 winner will be known on feeds but casuals had to wait til finale to find out who won Parts 1 and 2 in the recent past, so maybe that's all she meant. Or did they switch the comps, and Part 1 will be a simple QA rather than the endurance it's always been? We'll see, Hamsterwatchers, we'll see.

Feeds finally came back around 9.40pm and Jackson had won Part 1. They did indeed break tradition as it wasn't endurance: it had stamina/running, balance, and puzzle elements and involved lots of running around, jumping, climbing stairs, crossing a rope bridge, hanging on ropes with treasure chests and an Indiana Jones/Lara Croft type theme. They all competed together. Jackson had 25 something (completed puzzle pieces? not sure), Holly had 22, and Nicole had 8. The title was Raiders of the [something] - Jackson and Holly couldn't remember. It sounded more like a traditional Part 2 type comp, or the BB18 Part 1 where Nicole, Paul, James were dressed like cats and ran around different stages of oversized cat props. Jackson and Holly said at his shower that it was very fun but very hard. He said he should have let her win (which had been their plan if Part 1 was endurance as usual). Nicole laid in her bed alone, occasionally saying things like "it's embarrassing." She hurt her knee in the comp and was icing it.

As each did their Diary retells, the other two talked finals, as always happens at this stage. Nicole downplayed her own chances to both Holly and Jackson, while subtly working each of them. Nicole told Holly she'd done her best tonight, but she was disappointed and she'd never been an athlete. She said her ego was bruised more than her knee, but she'd take it as another piece in her BB learning curve. Jackson told her Cliff did indeed apologize today for his ploy, and "made it right." Jackson said he appreciated that, but he knew Cliff could still be working the jury against him, and he acknowledged that his jury management skills had been "shit, piss-poor." He changed his tune to both Nicole and Holly, now saying he just wants to sit in one of those chairs on Wednesday, and he'd be happy with second place.

Day 94 - Friday 9/20/19

The traditional final three champagne breakfast arrived on schedule, but since Julie shared memories with last year's final three last night for Sunday's show, the current three didn't have to dress up or be chaperoned this morning. They had to eat off their everyday camp dishes, which didn't lend a very fancy tone to the table, but no guest and no cues for discussion topics meant a much faster champagne breakfast than usual. They ran through a few non-cued memories on their own, and as tends to happen after 10am champagne, all three passed out afterwards.


A little later, around noon, they finally saw their family videos they've been begging for. Holly's father didn't appear in hers. Jackson sobbed silently under his hat, and mouthed "I'm sorry momma" at one point. Nicole offered him a hug and he told her "I wish I wouldn't have seen that video."

They spent most of the afternoon and evening napping, getting up now and then to play cards a little or move to another room for more napping. Feedmasters gave us some bonus random shots around the habitat, which I love. Jackson and Holly got a little snippy with each other about dinner prep, and Nicole turned to the camera to say "mommy and daddy are fighting again, I don't like it when they fight." Later she watched them from the balcony and made more cracks about being the third wheel on their bicycle, and Holly wondered if jurors were thinking poor Nicole, stuck in there with them? Nicole said "they probably are." When she left to join them for dinner, she passed the infamous shower sex stool, currently parked at the game table on the skybridge, and she said she didn't like it there, and asked if they could move it to Camp Have-not. That was said more to herself than the other two. Nicole's aware of the "alternate" uses that poor stool's been through this summer.

After dinner they lightly bashed all their former roomies, which was kind of fun. Jackson snapped at Holly about going to Diary in a see-thru top, saying "I'm just thinking about who all those millions of people include." They had a make-up hug when she came out, with him glaring at the camera. Yep big boy, we're watching. We've been watching, and we've seen and heard it all.

Part 2 will happen Saturday and it'll be a days comp: Holly versus Nicole. If Holly wins, the season's effectively over other than the formalities on Wednesday night. But Nicole's got the best shot for this one since she knows the days and Holly doesn't. If Nicole wins, she'll have a very good chance at making final two, plus things could be tense between Jackson and Holly tomorrow night.

Day 95 - Saturday 9/21/19

They sat around waiting for Part 2, nervousing and speculating, and whispering in pairs as the third went to Diary. For what, who knows? There won't be many Diary segments on Sunday or Wednesday shows, and most of the sessions they'll glean those few minutes from have probably been done. Feedmasters kept owls on quads for much of the day, along with our anxious and lazy hamsters.

They played cards, they played chess, and they fed the fishies. Nicole again asked if they could "do something" with the sex stool, adding "this is ridiculous, it's diseased, that's nasty, nasty ass stool." Jackson said "that's our favorite stool, that's the house stool" and said it wasn't diseased, and he and Holly laughed. Nicole joked she didn't like it because it reminds her of all her showmances that went home. Later Jackson harassed her with it. She squealed "nooooo" and told him to stop many times, but he kept doing it and laughing. They got a delivery of requested cosmetics, one item each: hair product for Jackson, more makeup for Holly, and dry shampoo for Nicole (she said she didn't need anything so just said that in case she could use it). They finally cracked open the tie-dye kits that arrived last Sunday and mixed, tied, banded, and squirted the included shirts together.

Feeds went to adoptable anipals at 6.43pm for Part 2, Nicole versus Holly. Last year they were down about three hours for Part 2, and just over six hours two years ago.

Feeds came back at 10.30pm and Holly had won Part 2. Nicole was crying in her RV room, and Holly and Jackson were whispering in the bathroom. Holly said it was a very hard comp, and she said something about Day 69, the day the clowns scared Nicole. I don't know if that was a pivotal question or what. Jackson said he was proud of her, and then said he wanted to check on Nicole and console her. Much later, Jackson and Holly finally formalized a final two deal with a pinkyswear.

That's pretty much a wrap for the season as Jackson and Holly will compete in Part 3 live on Wednesday, and whichever wins will almost certainly take the other to finals. I've never seen the fanbase rally so strong and almost unanimously behind one hamster before, not even Janelle's first season, and especially at the end. Nicole should be very very proud to have earned so much love and respect from this jaded community.

HOH 2 - Veto 0 - Noms 1/1/0 - HN 0

Won: $10,000; Camp Director 1st eviction immunity; Field Trip 7th eviction immunity; 24 hrs Alien Doctor
HOH 3 - Veto 4 - Noms 3/0/0 - HN 1

Won: 1 week pie smashing
HOH 2 - Veto 1 - Noms 0/1/0 - HN 1

Won: $7,500; Revival to Camp Comeback Day 30; Full revival to BB21; 1 week pie smashing
HOH 1 - Veto 1 - Noms 4/1/0 - HN 0

He was almost gone Day 1 but fought his way back in the banishment comp, then he was gone Day 30 but fought his way back again in the comeback comp. He was our hero the next day when he put up the Jacks, but then Jackson won veto and Cliff caved to Christie drama, putting up Bella as renom/target rather than getting rid of Jack. After that he was both over-cautious and reckless, both of which turned his and Nicole's endgames into disaster. Along the way he danced, bandwagon bashed The Six's targets, and he talked to us about his game, being a feedster himself, until Christie busted his Cliff Notes talks. After that they were all lovely but repetitive family shoutouts. He carted Orwell around for After Dark every night, he re-enacted the 1969 moon landing and held a 9/11 memorial, and wore a cereal box and a blown-up plastic glove on his head. He was liked by most if not all of them, and he made an effort to be a friend.

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. Tamar broke the first-in curse on Celebs 2, but Tommy upheld the other curse: the OTEV winner still hasn't won their season.

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.
