Big Brother Season 21, Episode 5 recap
After a quick recap, it was time for host Julie Chen to introduce the twist. The new twist is that the evicted houseguest will remain in the house. There is more information to come from Julie later in the hour.

Footage from the past week was shown where Christie pulled aside Ovi with Jack Matthews there to tell him that he wasn’t going to be a target. Jack was then shown being frustrated about Kemi Faknule not being nominated.
Ovi and Kathryn each pushed hard to get people on their sides, but the editing made it look like they were both creating waves in the house in a negative fashion.
Ovi reveals his secret power
Ovi pulled aside Jackson Michie and Jack to share the information he had about his secret power. His hope was that this was a way to save himself while trying to convince the guys that the power would help them as well.

Eviction Ceremony vote
At the first official Eviction Ceremony of the season, the houseguests had to decide whether to evict Ovi Kabir or Kathryn Dunn. As the vote was taking place, Julie reminded viewers about the person staying in the house.
In a unanimous vote, Ovi Kabir was evicted. As he was saying his goodbyes, a trumpet was played in the house and Julie asked everyone to return to the living room.
Everyone was told about Camp Comeback, where the first four evicted houseguests would reside somewhere in the house until possibly getting a chance to return to the game. The doorbell rang and David Alexander was there to re-join the game.
Camp Comeback is where Ovi and David will reside during competitions, but there are allowed to listen in.
#BBMichie’s certain he is NOT getting in a showmance this summer but… these moments with #BBKathryn have us wondering. 🤔 What do you think will happen between these two? #BB21 pic.twitter.com/nq7FwdEVPB

New HOH Competition
A question game was used to determine the new Head of Household. Getting a question wrong would eliminate people. Tommy Bracco, Holly Allen, and Kathryn Dunn were out first.
Jackson Michie, Jessica Milagros, Nicole Anthony, and Jack Matthews were the only people left after four questions. It then came down to just Jack vs Jessica for HOH. Jack beat Jessica to become the new Head of Household.
That brings an end to the Big Brother recap for Season 21, Episode 5. There are likely to be a lot of really exciting Big Brother 21 spoilers coming out on the feeds overnight.
