[SPOILER ALERT: Spoilers ahead for Big Brother 22.]

After Keesha Smith’s eviction, her Big Brother 10 co-star Memphis Garrett won the question-based Head of Household competition. He then made his nominations, which rubbed some the wrong way, before they competed in the Power of Veto competition. Who won, and will they use it to save someone on the block?

Memphis Garrett won Head of Household for ‘Big Brother 22’ Week 2

Last week, BB10 runner-up Memphis Garrett almost won the first Head of Household competition but ended up becoming a Have-Not by random selection.

Even though he could only eat slop and lived in a room secluded from everyone else, he wasted no time gathering an alliance. Memphis approached Cody Calafiore, Christmas Abbott, Nicole Franzel, Dani Donato Briones, and Tyler Crispen, who all eagerly agreed although they already joined other alliances.

He decided to name the group the Unusual Suspects. The BB10 runner-up then won the following HOH competition, keeping his alliance in power.

After briefly showing everyone his room, Memphis had private conversations with several houseguests and advised nearly all of them to play in the upcoming Safety Suite competition.

Memphis Garrett nominated Nicole Anthony and David Alexander

The restaurant owner also asked a few members of his alliance to compete so the other competitors wouldn’t think they were working together. David Alexander, Ian Terry, Kevin Campbell, Da’Vonne Rogers, Bayleigh Dayton, Cody, and Christmas all swiped their VIP passes to compete for safety.

Christmas ended up winning and chose Ian as her “plus one” because Nicole F. correctly assumed that Memphis wanted to target the other winner. Her decision to save Ian annoyed the BB10 runner-up even though he later told Christmas he didn’t care.

With the BB14 champ exempt, Memphis decided to play it safe and nominated BB21 co-stars Nicole Anthony and David. In his nomination speech, he apparently told Nicole A. she should have played in the Safety Suite competition and welcomed David “to the grown-ups table.”

The choice of words annoyed several houseguests, even many of his own allies.

Who won the ‘Big Brother 22’ Week 2 Power of Veto competition?

Memphis, Nicole A., David, Nicole F., Ian, and Tyer all competed in the Power of Veto competition with Enzo Palumbo hosting. Before it began, the other Unusual Suspects gathered and talked about how annoyed they were with Memphis’ behavior and nominations.

Additionally, Cody knows that Janelle Pierzina and Kaysar Ridha are forming an alliance to take out himself, Nicole F., Tyler, and Dani. Therefore, he wants Memphis to backdoor the longstanding allies. However, his reluctance to do so is making his allies doubt him and possibly turn on him.

After waiting until midnight, the houseguests finally competed in the endurance-related POV. According to the competitors describing it afterward, it seemed like they had to balance a ball on a heavy paddle.

Many believe the competition relied on arm strength, which is why Memphis walked away with the win. Not wanting to ruffle any feathers, the BB10 runner-up will likely keep his nominations the same.

After the competition, the votes were leaning toward keeping David. Therefore, Nicole A. might become the second evictee. Big Brother 22: All-Stars airs Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
