‘Big Brother 22’: Which Houseguests Will Face Off For Final HOH on Finale Night?
[SPOILER ALERT: Spoilers ahead for Big Brother 22.]
After Christmas Abbott joined the jury, the remaining three houseguests competed in the first two parts of the final Head of Household competition of Big Brother 22. Who won and will face each other on finale night for the most critical HOH title of the season?
Enzo Palumbo won the final four Head of Household competition
Following Memphis Garrett’s eviction, Enzo outplayed Cody Calafiore and Christmas Abbott in Knight Moves to become Head of Household for the week. He kept his number one ally safe and nominated Christmas alongside Nicole Franzel for eviction.
They competed for the most important Power of Veto competition thus far, and Cody walked away with another win. Even though he knew he would have an easier time beating Christmas in the end, Cody remained loyal to Nicole and cast the sole vote to evict the BB19 finalist.
Nicole Franzel won the first part of the final HOH
After Christmas joined the jury, the remaining three houseguests faced off for the first part of the last HOH title of the season. In order to advance, the all-stars had to hold on to a rope while spinning, getting covered in paint, and slamming into a wall.
Nicole won, claiming her third competition victory of the season. She admitted she was “shook” as she thought she would’ve lost the endurance competition to one of the guys.
Cody had a hard time due to the speed of the spinning and believed he had a bad grip because his arms were “burning.” When talking to himself about his performance, Enzo seemingly implied he threw the competition because he admitted he began thinking of ways to get out only a few minutes after it started.
Additionally, he explained he sat down instead of standing up because he wanted to make it more believable.
Nicole and Cody will face off for the final HOH
Cody and Enzo competed against each other for the second part, and the BB16 runner-up walked away with the win. Enzo complained to himself in the room afterward and admitted he had his “biggest blow-up of the season” during the competition. He also apologized to a family member and said he “let everybody down.”
The BB12 finalist later talked to Nicole and Cody in the kitchen about the competition. He demonstrated they had to find pig-shaped objects containing past houseguests’ names and place them in a slot with the matching description. The pigs also had to be standing up at the same time. Enzo admitted that he lost his cool during the competition and began yelling and cursing.
Afterward, the BB12 finalist laid in his bed and claimed he wouldn’t do Nicole’s podcast. He thought it didn’t make sense that she would take Cody to the end over him due to his social game. Enzo noted the BB16 runner-up has also done well socially, although he thinks Cody came into the house with pregame alliances, making it easier.
Nicole and Cody will face off for Part 3 on finale night. The winner guarantees their spot in the final two seats and picks who will sit next to them. Big Brother 22 airs Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 8/7c on CBS.
