Big Brother featured the house evicting Nick Maccarone over Christie Murphy during Thursday night's live Season 21 broadcast on CBS.

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.

"It didn't work out for me. [Tommy Bracco] is really loyal, but when it comes down to a vote, he hasn't been. He voted out [Jack Matthews], he voted out [Analyse Talavera] and he just voted out me. And [Cliff Hogg] is going to do what's best for his game," Nick told Big Brother host Julie Chen in his post-eviction interview.

"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."

Big Brother 21 - Episode 29

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.

Christie then told Tommy she could see Tommy and herself going to the end together.

"We are going to make it to the very end. That is my goal!" Tommy said of a Final 3 deal involving Christie.

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.

Nick also said Christie "jumped ship" so quickly when her back was against the wall. Nick told Holly and Michie they didn't owe him any loyalty or promise him anything but he'd still have their backs.

Michie was beginning to realize Nick had more to offer than Christie at this point in the game and maybe it made sense to keep him instead for the sake of longevity in the game.

Nick is evicted in the live eviction

It then became time for the live eviction, and Christie called Nick "a master of the game," saying she felt honored to be sitting next to him on the block.

And when Nick gave his speech, he said he missed Sam Smith and Isabella Wang terribly and called Michie his "boy."

Michie, Tommy, Nicole, Jessica and Cliff all voted to evict Nick.

The episode concluding with the season's next Head of Household competition dubbed "Hold on Fright."

Holly, as the outgoing Head of Household, was deemed ineligible to compete.

The endurance competition required the players to hold onto the outside of a haunted house for as long as possible as they were sprayed with water, scared by clowns and more.
