Big Brother 21: Did Bella Wang Just Break up with Nick Maccarone?


At the end of a long day, sometimes the best way to feel like you’re living your best life is with some comfy PJ’s, a glass of wine, and gratuitous reality television. In our series“Not-So-Guilty Pleasures,” we remove the “guilt” and break down the latest happenings in your favorite TV indulgences.

  • After being evicted from Big Brother 21 in the fifth week, Bella Wang appears to have broken up with her showmance partner, Nick Maccarone, who’s still in the house.
  • Bella tweeted that she couldn’t “support Nick and his actions” after he was seen cuddling with fellow contestant Analyse.

Since it started at the end of June, Big Brother 21 has proved that not only does it bring drama, but also occasional racism, bullying, and possible misuse of animals. The latest news of the season? One of the show’s main showmances may be over.

Bella Wang, who was evicted in a week five with a 8-2 vote, just tweeted what seems to be an official public statement of the end of her relationship with Nick Maccarone, who’s still in the BB21 house. Her announcement came after eagle-eyed live feed watchers caught Nick snuggling in bed with fellow houseguest Analyse Talavera.

Nick and Analyse have always been close friends in the house, but it’s unclear about whether or not their relationship is anything more. (Analyse was also in a showmance with the now-evicted Jack). But it seems that screenshots of their exchange are what caused Bella to speak out.

“I understand firsthand how being in the BB house can cause houseguests to feel extremely close to each other,” she wrote on Twitter. “Unfortunately at this time, I can no longer support Nick and his actions. NO ONE deserves to feel second in a relationship.”

She soon followed up with another tweet, which seems to leave a small window of hope for their showmance.

“Maybe Nick and I can discuss this once he is out of the house… and go from there,” she wrote. Of course, both threads have some pretty juicy responses.

Nick and Bella formed a quick bond in the early weeks of the house. Upon the 22-year-old public health analyst’s eviction, Nick was openly distraught and seen crying on the live show moments after she’d exited the game. And up until now, Bella has been openly rooting for him on Twitter.

“I think there’s something more,” Bella told Entertainment Weekly in July when speaking about their relationship.”I really, really, really, really didn’t want to get in a showmance at all. But Nick is a really great person and I love him so much…I definitely can’t wait to see him when he’s done with the show.”

To top it all off, since the cast is completely cut off from the outside world, Nick has no idea that his BB relationship is more-than rocky at the moment. Can someone say… awkward?
