Nick, a 27-year-old therapist from Sewell, NJ, was voted out of the Big Brother house in a 5-0 unanimous vote instead of Christie, a 28-year-old boutique owner from Staten Island, NY, who currently resides in Keyport, NJ.
"And Christie is good. She's a good campaigner. Her game borders on dirty a little bit for my liking, but I respect it. She does what she has to do to stay... [Jackson Michie] is now the only alpha male in the house."
Nick added, "I feel like Michie or [Holly Allen] are going to win this game. I feel like they're in a really good spot. They worked really hard to get back on top and they should be protected. I honestly hope one of them wins because I respect them the most."
The Big Brother broadcast began on Day 69 with Christie and Nick on the chopping block after the Veto Meeting.
Holly said Nick was still her target, and Christie figured that was the case. However, Nick felt super confident he could stay.
"If I would be the sole reason that Christie got out of this game, it honestly would be the biggest poetic justice. She would get what she deserves, and I would get what I deserve," Nick said in a confessional.
Nicole Anthony wanted to keep Nick around because they were close friends, she trusted him, and he served as a shield for herself, but she knew she needed to be cautious in order to not paint a target on her own back for next week.
Meanwhile, Jessica Milagros wanted to save Christie because they were friends and she thought Nick was a snake.
Jessica also thought she was a third wheel to many couples in the house -- such as Christie and Tommy -- which would be great for her endgame and potentially making it to the Final 3.
Tommy was then shown admitting to Nick that he had made a promise to keep Christie, so Nick was disappointed and started to feel defeated.
Nicole, however, wondered if there was a larger reason why Tommy was so hell-bent on having Christie's back. It was obvious they're a duo, but Nicole questioned whether there was more to their relationship -- and she was right, given the pair had known each other before the game.
Nicole then planted a seed by talking to Holly about how Christie had survived a previous eviction because of "a killer campaign" and was about to survive another week of being on the block.
Nicole also reminded Holly that Christie and Tommy were extremely close and maybe there was something the house didn't know.
But Nicole pitched the idea to Holly and Jackson that he was working for them and was also protection for them. He added that if either person ever got nominated and he won the Power of Veto, he would remove them from the block.
