Big Brother 22 — It’s Over

by Lisa Marie Bowman on October 28, 2020

SPOILERS!

SPOILERS!

Okay, another season of Big Brother is in the books. The house is now empty. The HGs are heading home.

Cody defeated Nicole for the final HoH. I was actually surprised that Cody chose to evict her and go to the final two with Enzo. Over the last few days, it really seemed like Nicole and Cody had their final two agreement set in stone. But, in the end, Cody obviously realized that he had a better chance of beating Enzo than beating Nicole.

And, it turns out, Cody was right. Despite some apparently bitterness on the part of the jurors, Cody not only won but he won unanimously. Even Da’Vonne and Christmas voted for Cody. Cody handled himself well during the jury questioning and, even though everyone liked Enzo personally, Enzo still couldn’t really point to any big moves that he had made while he was in the House.

So, Cody is the newest Big Brother champ. Enzo came in second. Da’Vonne beat out Tyler for America’s Favorite Player.

And another season comes to a close.

This was an often frustrating season. The lack of big moves and blindsides made for some fairly dull gameplay. But, it’s over now and, in the end, I do think the right person won.

So congrats to Cody! And thank you to everyone who has been reading this site over the past three months! I may not have enjoyed the season but I did enjoy writing about it.

As for the future — who knows? I’m covering The Amazing Race right now but once it’s over with, we’re going to be without reality programming for a while. Production on the new seasons of Survivor and The Amazing Race were both suspended due to the pandemic. Hopefully, Big Bother will be back next summer. And if it is, I’ll be back with it.

Stay safe everyone. Thank you for reading,

Lisa Marie

Well, Big Brother All-Stars is nearly over.

We’re down to three houseguests. On Wednesday, we’ll find out who our final HoH is. And then the jury will select the winner.

You know what that means — it’s time to open up the Diary Room one last time!

Who do you, the Big Brother Blog faithful, want to see win?

Do you vote for….

CODY, the best-looking guy in the House

ENZO, the wise guy

or

NICOLE, the last woman standing?

Let us know in the comments below or by voting in the little poll that we’ve got going over on the right side of the page! And then, on Wednesday, be sure to tune in and see who wins Big Brother All-Stars!

Happy voting,

Lisa Marie

P.S. Yes, “I don’t want any of them to win,” is a perfectly acceptable response.

Big Brother 22 — Who Won Part 2 of the HoH Comp

by Lisa Marie Bowman on October 25, 2020

Hi, everyone!

Nicole previously won the first part of the final HoH contest. Last night, Cody won the 2nd part.

What does that mean?

Well, basically, it’s pretty much the end of Enzo’s game. Nicole and Cody will be competing for the final HoH and then whoever wins will pick someone to take to the final two with them. But Cody and Nicole have a final two agreement so it seems like no matter who wins that final HoH, Enzo is going to get third place.

Of Cody and Nicole, I think Cody would be more likely to break the agreement and send out Nicole. Cody has always been the more ruthless of the two. But I also think that Cody believes that he can beat Nicole because Nicole’s a former winner. As for Nicole, she’s been saying that she’s going to honor her final two deal for a while now. So, while anything could happen, the most likely scenario is that Cody and Nicole go to the end together.

So, chances are that, come Wednesday, the jury will be choosing between Nicole and Cody.

Big Brother 22 — Who Won The First Part of the Final HoH comp

by Lisa Marie Bowman on October 23, 2020

Hi, everyone.

So, our final three is made up of Nicole, Enzo, and Cody. They are currently competing in a three-part HoH contest to decide who will be the final HoH. The final HoH is not only guaranteed a spot in the final two but they also get to pick who goes with them.

Last night, they played the first part of the HoH comp and it was won by …. Nicole. Judging from the conversation between Nicole and Enzo, it was apparently an endurance comp.

This means that the 2nd part of the HoH comp will be between Cody Enzo. And then whoever wins that will face-off against Nicole for the chance to be the final HoH,

So, for now, Nicole gets a few days to relax while Cody and Enzo fight to determine their future in the game.

Big Brother 22 — About Tonight

by Lisa Marie Bowman on October 22, 2020

Hi, everyone!

I know that the show is going to be running late in some parts of the country because of the presidential debate so, in case you haven’t seen it yet and don’t want to know who was voted out, STOP READING NOW!

Yep, it’s spoiler alert time!

Anyway, there were no big shocks tonight. Cody was the only one to cast a vote and, as expected, he voted to evict Christmas. In his goodbye message, he told Christmas about the wise guys and all the other alliances. Cody is trying to jury manage by being honest in his goodbye messages.

Most of tonight’s show was …. really quite boring. Did we really need to see a fantasy segment of Nicole thinking about winning for the 2nd time in a row? I don’t blame the show’s editors, though. Nothing happened in the House this week. I’m amazed they could stretch things out to an hour, to be honest.

So, anyway — here’s our final three:

Cody

Enzo

Nicole

Out of that three, Cody is the one who deserves to win but he still has to win that final three-part HoH comp to secure himself a place in the final two. That’ll start soon.

There are three episodes of Big Brother left. Tomorrow, they will show the flashback episode, where the final three sit around and say stuff like, “Remember that time Kevin and David got into an argument?” or “Remember all the pranks Nicole pulled?” Flashback episodes are the worst and I usually skip them, to be honest.

On Monday, I guess they’ll show the 1st part of the final HoH comp.

And then on Wednesday, a new winner is crowned and this season comes to an end.

We’ll see how it plays out. It’s almost over.

Big Brother 22 — Time to Open Up The Diary Room

by Lisa Marie Bowman on October 21, 2020

Hi, everyone!

It’s that time again! It’s time open up the diary room for week 11! This is your chance to let us know who you would vote for if you had the power to do so.

(SPOILER WARNING FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DON’T KNOW THE RESULTS OF THE VETO COMP)

Right now, Christmas and Nicole are on the block and Cody will be casting the only vote on Thursday night. Cody has made it clear that he will be voting to evict Christmas.

But who do you vote to evict?

Do you vote to evict….

NICOLE, who is playing for the first time without a showmance

or

CHRISTMAS, who is playing for the first time without a cast?

Cast you vote in the comments below or use the poll that we’ve got going on the right side of the page! Be sure to watch Thursday to see who gets sent to the jury!

Happy voting!

Big Brother 22 — Things Are Winding Down

by Lisa Marie Bowman on October 19, 2020

The House right now is boring. Christmas appears to know that Cody is going to send her to the jury. Enzo and Cody have been spending all of their time working out. Nicole has been studying for the next HoH comp, going over vote totals and eviction orders.

That’s about it. There’s not much going on. Christmas is more than a little bit bitter about how things are going. Nicole has gotten extremely cocky because she’s convinced that both Enzo and Cody will take her to the final two and she’ll become the first HG to win the show twice. At the very least, that’ll help pay for her wedding.

It’s kind of a fitting end for a season that saw no big moves and no grand strategy. Cody has pretty much run the House from the minute the season started. Enzo was smart enough to stay under the radar. Nicole and Christmas have both, more or less, been carried to the final four.

Who, out of our final four, has the best chance of winning? Normally, I would say Cody but I could see the jury being bitter and going for whoever is sitting next to Cody. To be honest, I could see Enzo winnings just because he hasn’t angered too many people. It could be a Paul and Josh situation all over again.

Nicole seems to be convinced that the jury loves her but I’m not totally sure about that. Da’Vonne, Kevin, and David certainly don’t like her. Memphis probably isn’t going to forgive her for putting him on the block. I could actually imagine the jury being even more bitter towards Nicole than they are towards Cody.

Well, we’ll see. As of right now, it appears that, come Thursday, our final three will be Nicole, Cody, and Enzo.

Big Brother 22 — Week 11 Veto Comp Results

by Lisa Marie Bowman on October 17, 2020

Hey, y’all!

So, earlier today, the 4 remaining houseguests played for the power of veto and it was won by….

CODY!

So, what does this mean? It means the nominations are going to remain the same. It means that Nicole and Christmas will remain on the block and that Cody will be the sole vote. As of right now, Cody has been pretty adamant that he’s going to vote to evict Christmas.

Enzo and Cody are now both guaranteed a spot in the final three. Also, both of them are going to make it to the finale without having ever been put on the block during all-stars.

Up until Thursday, I imagine we’ll see a lot of Christmas trying to convince Cody vote for Nicole. I doubt it will make much difference. Once Cody makes up his mind on how he’s going to vote, it’s rare that he changes it and he’s pretty much decided that he’s going to evict Christmas.

Big Brother 22 — Week 11 Nominations

by Lisa Marie Bowman on October 16, 2020

Hi, y’all!

Enzo made his nominations today. He nominated Nicole and Christmas for eviction.

The thing is, though, once you reach the top 4, everyone except for the HoH is pretty much on the block. If either Nicole or Christmas wins the veto and uses it, that means Cody will go up on the block, just because he’s the only person left who can be nominated.

That said, Christmas is still furious about being nominated. Last night, she spent hours in bed, crying about Memphis being evicted. Now, she’s once again in bed, talking to the camera about how she feels that Enzo betrayed her by putting her on the block.

What will happen on eviction night?

If the noms remain the same, Cody is planning on voting out Christmas.

If Christmas wins the veto, she’ll vote out Cody.

If Nicole wins the veto, I’m not sure how she’ll vote between Cody and Christmas. I know she has a deal with Cody but she has to also know that Christmas would be easier to beat in the finale.

What we do know is that both Enzo and Nicole are pretty much guaranteed a spot in the final three and that it’ll be either Cody or Christmas going to jury. It all depends on what happens with the veto tomorrow.

Big Brother 22 — And Your New HoH Is….

by Lisa Marie Bowman on October 15, 2020

Hey, everyone!

About tonight — well, it really wasn’t a shock. Cody and Enzo went ahead and voted out Memphis. Even though I think Enzo wanted to vote out Christmas, he decided to go along with Cody. I imagine Enzo wants to make sure that he stays on Cody’s good side so Cody will take him to the final two.

The feeds just came back and the new HoH is….

ENZO!

That’s right. Enzo finally won a comp. What does it mean that Enzo is HoH? Well, it means that he’s guaranteed a spot in the top three. It also means that Christmas and Nicole will probably end up on the block together. And if one of them wins the veto, then Cody will go up.

Only two weeks left! Enzo will make his nominations tomorrow.
