Holly Allen has revealed why alcohol is so limited for the houseguests on Big Brother. Find out what she said about the alcohol guidelines on BB.
Big Brother 21 runner-up Holly Allen has revealed why the producers limit the amount of alcohol that they give to the houseguests on the show. Unfortunately, Holly’s journey on BB21 was not exactly what she had always dreamed of. Over the course of the season, Holly got to win two Head of Household competitions and survived two nomination blocks. Through the Gr8ful alliance and her showmance with Jackson Michie, Holly made it all the way to the end.
When it got to the final three of Big Brother 21, Holly Allen and Jackson Michie competed together to go to the final two and leave Nicole Anthony in third place. They succeeded, but Jackson took home the $500,000 grand prize instead of Holly. After the show, Jackson and Holly stayed together for about a year. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Holly and Jackson announced that they had broken up.

In general, Holly Allen isn’t a huge fan of how she was edited on Big Brother 21, and how she was reduced to the “girlfriend” role to further Jackson Michie’s showmance plot. Alas, from time to time, Holly still holds Instagram Q&A sessions to share her Big Brother experience with the fans. During her latest Q&A, a follower asked Holly if production limited alcohol for the contestants on the show. “I think they learned the hard way on this,” Holly responded, “Tempters get high under the stress and people have gotten violent in the past.”
While Holly Allen kept things vague enough, she did draw a connection to the availability of knives in the house. Holly wrote, “They also don’t give us real knives and the only kitchen knife we do get would get taken away when a certain person got angry. Sooo yeah.” Holly’s specific comment about a “certain person” getting angry on her season is probably related to Jackson Michie, who became infamous for his anger mismanagement on the show. With that said, the rule that Holly is referring to was likely put in place after Justin Sebik got inebriated on Big Brother 2 and held up a knife against one of his co-stars – which is the reason that got him expelled from the season.
Many international editions of Big Brother are more permissive about alcohol intake, and some of those shows even throw parties inside the house for the contestants. Alas, that didn’t work out for the American edition, and it’s probably for the best – and for everyone’s safety – that alcohol is very limited inside the BB house.
