Cassandra Waldon, former ‘Big Brother’ houseguest, dead at 56
Big Brother” alum Cassandra Waldon, who was the very first houseguest to enter the house on the U.S. version, has died. She was 56.

Waldon passed away on Sept. 25 in Rome, where she lived and worked, due to a head injury sustained in a car accident about two months ago, according to TMZ. She never regained consciousness following the accident.

A communications director for the United Nations, Waldon finished in sixth place on the inaugural season of “Big Brother” in 2000. “Big Brother” host Julie Chen Moonves paid tribute to Waldon with a heartfelt post on Instagram on Friday.

“Rest In Peace Cassandra. Your light will continue to shine in this world because of the way you lived your life: with class and grace,” Chen Moonves wrote. “May your family and loved ones find solace and peace. Thank you for bringing your intelligence, warmth and wisdom to the ‘Big Brother’ house

‘Big Brother’ fans outraged over Jackson Michie’s victory: ‘Nicole should have won,’ they declare [Poll Results]

  • Gold Derby
You win some, you lose some. Even though Jackson Michie earned bragging rights on Wednesday night as the winner of “Big Brother” Season 21, only 29% of fans who voted in our recent poll claim they’re “happy” he won. Conversely, a whopping 69% of readers proclaim Nicole Anthony “should have won,” while just 2% thought it should have been Holly Allen. Do You agree or disagree with those poll results? Sound off down in the comments section.

Since Day 1, Michie had high hopes of walking out of the house with confetti on his shoulders, and that’s exactly what happened on Day 99 after the jury gave him six votes to Holly’s three. However, his victory was tarnished when host Julie Chen Moonves brought up all of the racist and sexist allegations that had plagued the show in early summer.

‘Big Brother 21’ winner Jackson says he’s ‘very, very not racist,’ will take ‘complete ownership of my mistakes’

It’s safe to say finale night didn’t go quite as Jackson Michie had imagined on “Big Brother 21.” He won over his showmance Holly Allen by a 6-3 vote and got the confetti on his shoulders like he had manifested pictured, but before all that, Julie Chen Moonves confronted him with allegations of racism and bullying. And let’s not forget Tommy Bracco‘s jury question about his (mis)treatment of women. It all made for a very awkward winning moment.

But game-wise, it’s hard to argue that Jackson didn’t deserve the $500,000. The watermelon-lovin’ mama’s boy was a comp beast, winning every eligible Hoh in the second half of the game, and concocted a big fat lie about Tommy to save Holly that encapsulated his ruthless ways.

We caught up with Jackson to get his thoughts on his big win, his conflicting emotions Wednesday night and more.

Big Brother Season 21 Winner on Allegations of Misogynistic Behavior: 'I Respect Women More Than Anything'

Big Brother houseguest Jackson Michie finally got that long-awaited confetti shower on Wednesday night — but he didn’t exactly seem thrilled about it.

On the Season 21 finale, Michie was awarded the $500,000 grand prize, besting runner-up Holly Allen in a 6-3 jury vote. But minutes before Michie was named the winner, he was grilled by host Julie Chen Moonves and some of the season’s previous evictees, who broke the news that some of Michie’s behavior this summer was perceived as racist and misogynistic.

After a long summer, “Big Brother 21” finally came to a close on Wednesday, with the winner announced by host Julie Chen Moonves in Wednesday’s live season finale.

The houseguests getting dragged for their ugly behavior on the ‘Big Brother 21’ finale was incredible television

The houseguests getting dragged for their ugly behavior on the ‘Big Brother 21’ finale was incredible television
“Big Brother” finales are often rushed affairs, and arguably the most important part — jury questionnaire and final statements — gets the short shrift so Tptb can cram in various segments, like Swaggy C proposing to Bayleigh last year. That was painful for us, but what happened on Wednesday’s Season 21 finale was painful for the houseguests and absolutely incredible for us.

During the pre-jurors segment, Julie Chen Moonves wasted no time bringing up all the gross behavior this season that ranged from Gr8ful’s bullying of Nicole Anthony (and Ovi Kabir’s sweet defense on her behalf) and racism to Nick Maccarone’s two-timing ways. It was brutal, uncomfortable and glorious, and no one in jury (except maybe Jack Matthews) or the final two, Jackson Michie and Holly Allen, saw it coming at all.

Ironically, Jack, the worst offender this summer, came off the best, but that’s probably because

‘Big Brother’ 21: Nicole Anthony named America’s Favorite Houseguest during uncomfortable live finale

  • Gold Derby
The motto of “Big Brother” has always been “expect the unexpected,” but after Wednesday’s live finale the new motto should really be “expect the uncomfortable.” We’re looking at you, Jackson Michie!

Near the end of the 90-minute episode, host Julie Chen Moonves brought up several of the summer’s most controversial moments, including how some viewers saw Michie’s decision to banish David Alexander, Kemi Fakunle, Jessica Milagros and Cliff Hogg on day one as racist/ageist. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. The one shining moment from the Season 21 finale was when viewers named Nicole Anthony as America’s Favorite Houseguest.

Kathryn said she saw all facets of Jackson's game and wasn't opposed to him winning. Analyse aka Sis still seemed quite pissed at Jackson. She said he's not loyal at all.

How will the ‘Big Brother 21’ jury vote? Let’s break it down (spoilers)

The “Big Brother 21” winner will be crowned Wednesday after the jurors cast their votes. And unlike most seasons, there is no suspense as to who the final two will be. Since Jackson Michie and Holly Allen won the first two parts of the final Hoh, respectively, they’ll take each other to final two, regardless of who wins Part 3 on Wednesday’s finale (though Jackson’s been dealing with a bout of paranoia recently). This is what happens when you don’t break up a showmance. So that means Nicole Anthony will be the ninth and final juror.

So how will the jury vote between Jolly? Will they be as bitter as the last three? There’s still a lot of variables, like the jury roundtable, if Cliff Hogg III will in fact try to sway everyone against Jackson, the jury questions and the final speeches. But based on everything we know so far,

Cliff Hogg (‘Big Brother’ 21) exit interview: ‘I was perhaps too trusting in gentleman’s agreements,’ he says after Michie’s betrayal

After 93 days in the “Big Brother” house, Cliff Hogg was sent packing on Thursday’s live eviction episode when Jackson Michie cast the sole vote to send the 54-year old engineer to jury. Although Nicole Anthony was the reigning Head of Household and had nominated Holly Allen and Michie for eviction, Michie won the most important Power of Veto of the summer, giving him the only vote on eviction night. Despite what Cliff may have thought, there was no chance Michie was going to save Cliff over his girlfriend Holly. Thankfully, host Julie Chen Moonves was waiting outside to ask Cliff what all of America wanted to know: “What was he thinking?!”

“I think I was getting a little too dependent on Michie and Holly,” Cliff admits. “I knew [Michie] was a strong person and I thought I could ride behind him. I was really thinking at some point someone else

Hey, fellow "Big Brother" fans. Tonight, September 19, 2019, the final 4 Live eviction show did indeed air, and another unlucky houseguest was sent packing, leaving just our final 3 for this season! Tonight's Live eviction show kicked off with footage of what took place in the house after Jackson won the Power Of Veto competition. Jackson was seen telling Nicole that he's definitely taking Holly to the final three. Nicole was visibly upset because she was hoping that his impossible deal with Cliff was possible. Jackson went to talk to Nicole alone to give her the dose of reality that she needed. He tried to sell to Nicole that he was forced to lie when she and Cliff started considering keeping Tommy over Holly last week. Nicole wasn't buying it, and she totally felt stupid for taking a showmance into the final 3. Jackson asked Nicole not to tell Cliff, but she wasn't having that.

‘Big Brother’ Turns 20: How the Genre-Defining Show Helped Shape Reality TV
When it comes to “Big Brother,” Peter Salmon has skin in the game as the chief creative officer of Endemol Shine, which makes and sells the format. But back when it hit British screens, in 2000, he was at the BBC, and the show aired on rival pubcaster Channel 4. It quickly overshadowed the Beeb’s own attempt at TV-meets-social-experiment, “Castaway,” an altogether more sober show.

“We saw ‘Big Brother’ and it just did it properly and was the human experiment we imagined we might have done ourselves. And like everyone else, we were transfixed,” Salmon says. “The fact you could watch it unfold it in front of your eyes was and is an abiding principle. I remember it well. Everything changed at that point.”

Produced by John de Mol’s Endemol (years before the company aligned with Shine), the show started out in the Netherlands in 1999, on Rtl’s Veronica channel.

Tommy Bracco (‘Big Brother’ 21) exit interview: ‘Michie made up a big fat lie!’ And who’d he want to sit next to in the finale?

Tommy Bracco cartwheeled his way to “Big Brother” 21 host Julie Chen Moonves after becoming the latest houseguest sent packing on Thursday’s live eviction episode. Despite launching a convincing campaign to save himself, Tommy was outsmarted by Head of Household Jackson Michie, who wove together a brilliant web of lies to convince Cliff Hogg and Nicole Anthony that Tommy couldn’t be trusted. In a last minute decision, Cliff and Nicole ultimately decided to evict Tommy over Michie’s number one ally and showmance, Holly Allen.

“He got me!” Tommy exclaims as he sits down with Julie. “It’s all false! It’s all a lie.” After Julie explains that viewers at home have not seen what transpired between Michie and Tommy, she gives the Broadway dancer an opportunity to explain his emotional final hours in the house.

‘Big Brother 21’ spoilers: There’s a new final 3 deal in place, but who knows if it’ll actually last

Well, Thursday’s episode of “Big Brother 21” was a doozy, wasn’t it? The post-eviction activities weren’t as dramatic, though, as the Hoh comp lasted less than 10 minutes, thanks to a bunch of deals, including a new final three.

First, no one knows what exactly went down during that intense house meeting Thursday morning or the rest of the day before the eviction. Shortly after the meeting was called, feeds went down for the usual prep for the live show, but they never returned because you know Tptb didn’t want to give away the farm; they had to maintain suspense about the vote and reserve good stuff to use to pad out Sunday’s episode. So now it’s a matter of filling in the blanks on what happened based on everyone’s conversations.

So here’s what we know: Holly Allen made a deal with Cliff Hogg

Who would have thought that the two most influential people in the “Big Brother” house would be underdogs Nicole Anthony and Cliff Hogg? Well, that’s exactly how things shaped up this week after Nicole won the Veto and removed Cliff from the chopping block.
