Now that Big Brother until next year, it’s time to take a look back at the season that was. Earlier, we took a look at the cast’s best moves. Now we are reflecting on the cast of Big Brother 21’s worst moves. The next person we will look at is Christie Murphy.

Christie Murphy was the 6th member of the jury in Big Brother 21. Christie was known for her gameplay, controversial behavior in the house, and her emotions.

Christie started off Big Brother 21 in a very strong position. She was part of the Gr8ful alliance and she had her real-life friend Tommy Bracco in the house with her. This allowed her to remain safe until week 7. Beginning with week 7, she was nominated for eviction 5 consecutive times before finally being evicted in week 10 on the backend of the double eviction.

Christie was the first Head of Household of Big Brother 21 and she nominated Cliff Hogg III and Kathryn “Kat” Dunn for eviction. After Sam Smith won the Power of Veto, he used it to save Kat. Christie named Ovi Kabir the replacement nominee. Ovi had tried to form an alliance to target her Gr8ful alliance. However, the people he told about the big alliance were members of Gr8ful.

In week 3, Christie won the Panic Whacktivity earning her the Panic Power. This allowed her to turn someone’s Golden Power of Veto into the Diamond Power of Veto at one of the next couple of Power of Veto ceremonies.

Later in the week, Christie was one of the people who spearheaded the Six Shooters alliance with the intention of targeting Cliff. Christie had overheard Cliff’s strategy talk earlier in the week in which Cliff said he wanted to go after the couples. Their Gr8ful allies Nick Maccarone, Isabella “Bella” Wang had wanted to target Nicole Anthony after a bullying incident earlier in the week.

Christie’s plan to evict Cliff backfired when he won the Camp Comeback Competition and later, Head of Household. Cliff nominated Jack Matthews and Jackson Michie for eviction that week. Once Michie won the Power of Veto, Cliff considered the possibility of naming Christie the replacement nominee. However, Cliff made a deal with Christie to keep Christie off the block and not have her use the Panic Power against him. As a result, Bella was named the replacement nominee and ultimately evicted in an 8-2 vote.

In week 7, Christie was one of 3 players selected to participate in America’s Field Trip alongside Michie and Analyse Talavera. Despite Analyse’s attempt to throw the competition, Christie lost the Competition and was named a special 3rd nominee. However, Tommy won the Power of Veto and used it to save Christie.

The following week, she was nominated again. This time she was up against Analyse. Christie was HOH Michie’s target going into the week. However, the infamous Taco Tuesday fight between Christie and Nick began to turn the tides. Christie used it to her advantage and made a deal with Michie and Holly that allowed Michie and Holly to use her as a pawn in future weeks.

In week 9, she was nominated for the 3rd straight week. This time, by America’s Prankster Nick Maccarone. She was up against Nick for eviction. However, she stayed in a unanimous vote.

She survived a 4th week on the block in week 10, this time against Jessica Milagros. On the back end of a double eviction in week 10, she was nominated alongside Tommy. She was evicted in a 3-0 vote.

Christie’s worst moves of Big Brother 21

Christie’s worst move was not working on her social game more. It became evident later on she really only had a social game through her real-life friend Tommy. As an example of her poor social game, it took her over 50 days to ask Michie where he worked as a server. That’s the kind of thing you should be talking about with people on Day 1 or 2.  A combination of her coming on strong and her poor social play caused her to be nominated 5 times in a row (although one time was via America’s Field Trip). If she had a better social game, it isn’t hard to see her and Tommy making it to the end together.
