Warning: This article contains spoilers for Big Brother Season 21.
There are only a few days left of Big Brother Season 21 as Day 99 approaches. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Jackson Michie won Part 1 of the final Head of Household (HOH) competition, with Holly Allen winning Part 2. This almost guarantees that the showmance will make it to Final 2, meaning Nicole Anthony will inevitably come in third place.
Nicole has been a fan-favorite since the beginning of the show, with many fans considering her to be an underdog who wasn’t involved in many alliances and was outcast from the “popular group” on several occasions. Over the last several weeks, Nicole became the real champion of Big Brother. Many viewers were hoping Nicole would save the season, as some are regarding it as the worst season in the show’s history.
Now that Jackson and Holly are the only two houseguests eligible to win the final HOH competition, Nicole will be the last member of the jury since the showmance will take one another to the end.
Once the results of Part 1 and Part 2 were revealed on Twitter by spoiler accounts, fans began raging behind their keyboards, accusing this season of being rigged in Jackson’s favor. As many viewers have pointed out, Jackson was caught cheating while he was a have-not.
Soon after, the slop punishment was canceled for the season and no further explanation was offered by the show’s production team. It’s been rumored that Jackson’s mother got involved, hiring a lawyer to protect her son and his slop punishment. However, the rumor has not been confirmed.
This is the first time have-nots were canceled after only two weeks in play in the house. The punishment can have a major effect on gameplay, meaning the cancelation could have given Jackson a major advantage in the game. Over the last week, certain comments Jackson made about the final Power of Veto (POV) competition has even more fans scratching their heads.
Jackson noted that production helped in the POV by telling him that he was doing the competition wrong, so he corrected himself straight to a victory. Normally, production will not intervene over the loudspeaker to correct anyone, which gives other houseguests a chance to win. A fan thread on Twitter detailed the assistance production gave Jackson, which seems to confirm that the Tennessean was given an advantage over Cliff Hogg and Nicole.
Another gray area in Jackson’s game involved the lie he concocted to help Holly, who was on the block next to Tommy Bracco, stay in the game. Rules of Big Brother state that you cannot use production or discuss your diary room sessions to further your game. However, it appears Jackson broke the rules to ensure Cliff and Nicole voted to evict Tommy.
According to a fan on Twitter, Jackson lied about a diary room session regarding Tommy, which aided in keeping Holly over the broadway dancer.
The winner of Big Brother Season 21 will be revealed on Wednesday night.
