What Are The Big Brother Season 21 Houseguests Doing Now?
A secret alliance between two previous acquaintances? Houseguests living in the house but not competing until a comeback? A major alliance imploding on itself on a live eviction night? Two underdogs taking on a super showmance in the Final Four? A showmance in the Final Two? So much to unpack!
The summer in the Big Brother 21 house may have been themed for summer camp, but the 16 Houseguests endured much more than s'more making and pesky mosquitos. So how are the Houseguests holding up after a few months out of the house?
Let's take a look at where the Big Brother Season 21 Houseguests are today!

She may have been runner-up on finale night, but Holly walked away from the Big Brother house with $50k and a brand new beau.
The Wyoming native and LA transplant returned to life in LA with her dog, Jackson (no resemblance to her new BF), and has been keeping up her relationship with Jackson Michie, her devotion to her friends, and duties in the pageantry world.
So Bella showed me all the cool things in Santa Monica on Christmas Eve. . . I am missing my family and friends back home during this week but man is it nice to take the time to settle in and unpack. . . This year has been quite the ride. #lovinglife #fortunate #amianinfluenceryet #doyoufeelinfluenced #newalliance #bb21 #myhomie #adventuresincalifornia
David was the first one "out" of the house but got the chance of a lifetime when Camp Comeback was introduced and he found himself back in the House as a camper, if not a competitor.
His time in Camp Comeback allowed David a rare chance to get especially close to the other Houseguests despite his outsider status and his current friendships reflect that. Even Jack, who expressed feeling especially threatened by David's gameplay and apologized to him on finale night, has trained with David sharing their love of fitness. Fellow Houseguest, Bella was more than happy to show David around when he decided to move to Los Angeles.
Third place winner Nicole played an insightful and daunting game in the Big Brother house. She was often up against those whose social and physical games were more than a little intimidating.
Nicole showed what she was made of later in the season, standing up for herself repeatedly, doing her best to rely on her gut, and taking every opportunity possible to remind those watching the feeds that nothing is as important as being true to yourself.
A mantra she clearly continues to chant to as she travels, meets other BB alumni, and embraces the fans who voted her America's Favorite Houseguest.
The BB21 house's resident performer made sure his fellow Houseguests picked up smooth dance moves if nothing else from the summer.
Tommy spent quite a bit of time in the house, having made it to the Final Five, and treated the other Houseguests like family. All while keeping a very big secret: he and Christie knew each other from outside of the house.
These days he's clearly happy to be back with his actual family and recently took a trip to Disneyland. He's made time for his BB BFF Christie, dressing with her for Halloween in matching BB Poison Ivy outfits.
Kat was the resident conspiracy theorist, comedic relief, and surprisingly sneaky player of BB21. She quite successfully played multiple sides of the house, protecting herself for some time.
As a member of the Jury, she surprised everyone by taking up a flirtation with Nick, one that appears to be continuing out in the real world.
Kat stays busy modeling, doing public appearances, and has capitalized on her trademark phrase with a line of clothing aimed at "conspiring bitches."
Kemi was the queen of side-eye and sass in the house, always with her trademark dry humor and cuteness.
As a result, she may not have made it out of Camp Comeback but she made it directly into the hearts of fans. She wasn't afraid to speak her truth on finale night and she continues to bring the realness outside of the house in her life in NYC.
Not to mention her killer fashion sense.
Cliff Hogg III
Cliff surprised everyone inside and outside of the house by proving himself to be a true strategist and Big Brother Superfan.
Cliff made his way to the Final Four before mistakenly putting his trust in Michie but he was so clearly happy to have played the game, he made for one chipper Jury member.
These days, Cliff is back in Texas with his family and took one of his best friends from the house back with him. Orwell has surely never been better cared for.
If making cookies could win Big Brother, Ovi would have come out on top. As it was, he made it into Camp Comeback long enough to form a tight friendship with Nicole and leave as a house hero, standing up to bullies and advocating for diversity and inclusion.
Ovi keeps up with the BB friends he made, especially Nicole, and is back to life with his girlfriend.
Nick possibly engaged the most in BB21's house drama, starring alongside Christie in the infamous Taco Tuesday blow-out. Outside of the house, however, he appears to keep a much lower profile.
He and Kat formed a strong bond in the Jury house and her calming and quirky influence continues to attract him.
MCM. —— I absolutely LOVE this photo. ?: @analysetalavera —— To one of the most genuine people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. If you haven’t met him yet, I hope that you get the chance to. He truly is something else and is here to do something beautiful in this world. So happy to call you my friend! —— #shakeandbake #bestfinaltwo #otherbromance #mydude #onethousandpercent
Jack played a hard and fast game that included turning on his own Final Two partner Michie, essentially dissolving the Gr8ful/Six-Shooters alliance. Despite his paranoia and tendency toward harsh observations, Jack made it far enough to become the first member of the Jury.
Outside of the house, Jack continues to be a trainer and fitness enthusiast. He and Analyse kept up their romance post-BB for a while before deciding to give it a break, but he expresses his admiration and love for fellow Houseguests eagerly and often.
1,600 miles, a couple missed/delayed flights, and some big ol smiles... all worth it to surprise my family for thanksgiving. Enjoy the holidays and always make time for family and loved ones. At the end of the day it’s the most important thing we have and we can’t put a price on it.
King of cliche sayings and watermelon-eating, Michie took home the grand prize by being singularly focused—even while maintaining a showmance with Holly. Michie made it clear on finale night that the only person whose opinion he was concerned with was his mother's, and post-Big Brother, a top priority for him was reconnecting with family.
Holly appears to be a big part of Michie's life—she even went home with him for Thanksgiving! And it seems bygones are bygones with Jack, who is now back to being one of Michie's close friends.
Jessica was a trusting and motherly influence in the BB21 house, though she certainly could put on a shocked and dramatic face whenever the twists of the game took her by surprise.
All that dramatic tension has paid off outside of the house, though, where she continues to mug for the camera as a model and even had a cameo appearance on The Bold and the Beautiful.
The guru of the BB21 house, Christie spoke often about manifesting her way through the game. In the end, she couldn't quite manifest a win, but certainly left an impression.
She also managed to successfully keep her and Tommy's previous relationship a secret until they decided to tell the Jury together.
Back at home in New Jersey, Christie continues to run her retail business and enjoys the perks of being a part of the Big Brother family, spending more time with Tommy, and finally meeting her not-so-spiritual sister, BB20's Kaitlyn Herman.
Sam was known to tell it like it is in the house, but he was also eager to tell a good story and make his fellow HGs laugh. He talked often of his family and life on the road as a truck driver.
Post-Big Brother, he is back at home and enjoyed being just as baffled as the rest of us watching the rest of the season play out on TV this summer.
Sam may have missed out on going to Jury, but he didn't leave the Big Brother house empty-handed. Sam won a trip to Fiji and he and his wife got to enjoy an exciting beach trip.
Analyse suffered through a few fun punishments in the house and endured a few jokes at her expense as well, but she was always quick to laugh at herself and was the unofficial "little sister" of the house.
She quickly fell into a flirtation with Jack, which has since ended, but returned to her life in LA after finale night, continuing to model and advocate for physical and mental health. All with her trademark sense of humor.
When Bella left the BB house, she'd made quite a few enemies, stirred up some trouble, and gained a boyfriend. Outside of the house, she watched with the rest of America as her enemies found themselves in new trouble and her boyfriend flirted his way through the house (and into Jury).
Needless to say, Bella had plenty of reason to chop off her hair, go blonde, and get empowered to be her best self outside of the house.
She appears to have made her amends with other Houseguests (except those she's cut out entirely) and is living her best life. She even kept up her re-pierced nose ring!
