‘Big Brother 22’: Nicole Franzel and Janelle Pierzina Got Into an Argument Off-Feeds
[SPOILER ALERT: Spoilers ahead for Big Brother 22.]
After the second eviction of Big Brother 22, Nicole Franzel and Janelle Pierzina shared a heated exchange. The two have been annoyed with each other since they moved in, and it seemingly came to a head during the Have-Not nomination speeches.
Nicole Franzel and Janelle Pierzina got off to a bad start in ‘Big Brother 22’
During Leg 7 of The Amazing Race Season 31, Big Brother 13 winner Rachel Reilly Villegas and her sister, Elissa Reilly Slater, heard Team Fun planning to U-Turn Nicole Franzel and Victor Arroyo.
Because they were aligned with the other Big Brother team, the sisters warned them of the other team’s plans. When Nicole and Victor “fact-checked” the information with Team Fun, Rachel and Elissa claim the BB couple plotted to U-Turn them.
However, Nicole insists she only asked if the sisters’ warnings were accurate. The situation caused Rachel and Elissa to fall out with Nicole, and the BB18 winner believed Janelle Pierzina might target her due to it in BB22.
While Janelle has stated she doesn’t have any hard feelings, the four-time competitor has admitted she doesn’t trust Nicole because of the TAR drama.
Nicole Franzel said something mean to Janelle Pierzina
After the second Power of Veto ceremony, Kaysar Ridha and Janelle talked to Memphis about using it on their ally and backdooring Nicole F.
Because the BB18 winner is a member of the Unusual Suspects, Memphis told Nicole F. what Janelle said, upsetting the podcaster.
She bashed the four-time competitor almost non-stop and claimed she volunteered to become a Have-Not so she could nominate Janelle. The BB18 winner followed through and harshly picked the four-time competitor as her replacement.
Once the Live Feeds came on after the episode (EST), Nicole sat in the bathroom with Ian. She told him that Janelle mocked her, stating, “whiny, whiny whiny.”
The BB18 champ also said she thought she “gained some respect standing up for myself.” Cody Calafiore entered the bathroom, and Nicole claimed she didn’t “plan on saying that,” but now she’s “in trouble.”
However, the BB18 champ insisted that the four-time competitor continually spoke negatively about her. Nicole also shouted out the “girls at home” and advised them to stand up for themselves.
Janelle Pierzina said Nicole Franzel loves to play the victim role
Nicole’s speech annoyed Janelle as she called her the “biggest wimp in the house.” In a conversation with Kevin Campbell, the four-time competitor claimed she would “f***ing destroy her” and called the BB18 winner “gross.”
Although Kevin didn’t want Janelle to go off on Nicole, he acknowledged that her exploding could make her a bigger target, giving the other houseguests an incentive to keep her.
Janelle agreed and thought the competitors could vote for her as someone to go after Nicole and take care of their dirty work. The fan-favorite continued talking about the BB18 champ and joked she would pour salt all over Nicole’s food.
However, Janelle noted she doesn’t want to go off on the returning winner because it would give the BB18 champ an excuse to play the victim, a role she believes Nicole “loves to play.”
Viewers will hear what Nicole said in her Have-Not nomination speech on Sunday, Aug. 23.
