  1. Previously, on Big Brother, with the Cookout finally ready to turn on each other, the guys made a F3 deal. But Kyland and X then made their own gentleman’s deal. So when Ky egg-spertly seized power, he put up his and X’s two biggest threats. After Kyland claimed even more power, his nominations became final, and Tiffany’s days seemed numbered. At the live eviction, Tiffy toes tippy toed straight to jury, but she would not be alone. When the HOH resulted in a face-off, Azah rolled into power and she quickly made her nominations. At the most critical veto competition of the summer so far, Ky got another huge win and he saved his ride or die. Setting the stage for Hannah to be rannah out of the house. Tonight, witness the drama that went down during the action packed double eviction. Plus, a new HOH will be crowned and the winner punches their ticket to the top three. And which two Cookout members will find themselves in the hot seat? Find out right now on Big Brother. We pick up on Day 71 after the double eviction. Derek F says it feels great that they keep keeping him, but he did not like the veto stunt because they are supposed to be loyal to him, and not each other. X says it is bittersweet because he just sent his baby sis out the door. But it speaks volumes to how well he has done that he has been nominated five times and still there. Ky says he is so close to the end and he cannot stop until he is in one of the F2 chairs. Azah says the double eviction was intense but she and Hannah never solidified a deal. She has been close with Big D and X and so her loyalties lie with them. Azah says she did not want Hannah to feel frazzled, but she lied to her. Azah says all she had to do with Hannah on the block was make sure she did not win veto. We see Ky telling Hannah that he was going to save X and he did not promise to vote to save Hannah. Hannah says she would love to be part of the final four. We see Hannah asking X who he would vote to keep. X says he wanted to keep Hannah, but he did not want to put Azah in a tough decision and that would cause some backlash on him. He felt it was better to make it a unanimous vote. We see Ky saving X and Big D being nominated. He says he was livid because this was not a part of his plan and that makes him upset. He has to trust these boys are going to do what needs to be done, but next time they need to give him a heads up. We see Ky and X talking about if they were going to vote to keep Hannah. X would love to give her a sympathy vote but he needs to create trust with Ky and he cannot vote for Hannah. Hannah tells Big D that X and Ky have a final two. Big D says Azah does not need to know he has a F3 with the guys and hopefully the deals he made with the guys will get him through the next elimination. Azah says her stomach does not sit right with this move. She is concerned they want to take out Big D. Hannah is talking to Ky and X and she pitches for them to keep her. She says please vote to keep me and X says they need to think it over. We see Hannah evicted and Ky says he did not want to split the vote and Azah does not feel good. She feels like she has been played. X says achieving final four is a huge accomplishment and he has to do some damage control but everyone competition from this point matters. He says every move he makes has to be perfect. It’s either put up or shut up. Ky says he has a F2 with Xavier and that is the one he is most committed to, but he cannot let Derek know that. Xavier says he is making Ky think he is loyal to him, but his first F2 is made with Big D and that is who he will be loyal to. Azah and Big D are talking and she is mad. She says they did not need to do that and she was forced to put up her ally and she is left feeling icky and upset. Big D says they still have a game to play and they need to focus. Big D is talking to X and he says his attitude is not with him, but he is upset they did not tell him what was going on. He says he does not care who sits next to him, but he deserves a seat in one of those final two chairs. X says it is no surprise that Big D is upset that Ky used the veto on him. X says that raised a red flag with Big D and he can understand why that would make him upset. Big D says he does not leave them out of plans. It is time for the HOH competition! They see a trailer for the new season of CSI:Vegas and the next HOH will be a crime scene competition. They will compete one at a time. Xavier says this HOH is big. Ky says he has been thinking about all of the things he has sacrificed this summer and he did not come this far to not make it to F2. Azah says she does not know where her standing is in the house but now she feels she has a target on her back. Big D says the guys pulled a fast one on him and he needs to win this HOH to make sure there are no blindsides going forward. He wants to make F2 and this HOH will be a big step in getting there. Big D is the first HG into the BB Crime Lab. The HOH key has been stolen from the BB23 museum and it is his job to find the clues. He will grab a blacklight and look for 5 pieces of evidence. He has to match the evidence with the evidence on the wall on the crime wall. Once they have believe they have the five correct pieces of evidence, then they need to ring in. If they are correct, they will lock in their time. If they are incorrect, they have to figure out what they did wrong. Fastest time wins HOH. Big D heads to the crime scene and he wants to look at each and every single detail. But he says when you go back to look at the evidence you realize there are decoys and it makes it very difficult. He selects fingerprint #10, but the correct piece is #5. Big D has found the second clue of the shoe prints. He goes with #12 and he has this one correct. He finds the third clue of the chemical evidence and he says it is clearly #3 and he is correct on that one. Big D finds the DNA and thinks it is #11, but it is #4. He is looking for the final clue and he says it is the most difficult so far. He is confident it is tire track #10, but he is wrong because it is #9. He locks in his time and he has three wrong. Big D switches out DNA #11 with #4 and he rings in. He gets that correct, but now he is unsure. He gets tire track #9 and he has it right but there is still one wrong. He goes back to look at clues. He thinks maybe it is the fingerprint and he gets #5 and he is correct. Xavier is in next and his strategy is to find the clues first and then go and match it up with its corresponding evidence. He says getting a fast time is going to be crucial. He starts with the chemical clue and he has it correct. X heads back in and he finds the DNA clue and he says it is a bit trickier and he gets it correct. He finds the fingerprint clue next and he says it is tricky. He grabs fingerprint #10 and he is incorrect on that one. X goes back in and finds the tire track clue and he says who is driving in a museum. He gets that one correct and he is looking for the shoeprint. He runs back in and grabs the correct one. The only one he has incorrect is the fingerprint. X says fingerprint #5 looks similar to #10 and he runs back to the museum to look at the clue again. He runs back in and selects the correct fingerprint and he locks in his time. Kyland is in next and he runs into he museum. He decides to look for one clue at a time so he is not getting distracted. He found the shoe print and when he looks at the evidence he realizes there are several options so he goes to look again. He selects the correct one. Ky goes back into the museum and finds the DNA and he selects the correct one. He then finds the tire track and he looks at the evidence. He then runs back to the museum for another look and he selects the correct one. Ky then finds the fingerprint and he goes to look at the evidence and he says the differences are pretty subtle and he selects the correct one. He now has to go find the chemical evidence. He feels like he has looked everywhere and he cannot find the symbol. Ky finally finds the chemical clue and he has to go find the one on the evidence wall. He locks in his time and he is correct. He says he has all the answers right on the first try, but he is not sure about the times of his competitors. Time to see how the HG did in the BB Crime Lab competition. Derek F finished with a time of 15:44. Kyland finished with a time of 14:52. Ky is now in the lead. Xavier finished with a time of 10:18. Xavier has won the HOH! Xavier says this is big and he is emotional. He has guaranteed himself a spot in the final three. He says this HOH could be the difference between him winning $750k and going home. He says it is a great feeling. Big D says it is hard to feel like he is riding people’s coattails because he likes to be a leader. X is in a bedroom talking to himself and says he won when he needed to. Big D and Azah congratulate him and he thanks them. Ky is disappointed in himself. He definitely could have been better at it than he did. He says how is he so stupid. He trusts Xavier moving forward, but if someone else wins veto, there is nothing he can do. Big D comes to comfort Ky and Ky says if Azah wins veto and she will take him over Ky. Big D is telling Ky not to worry about that yet and focus on the veto competition first. Big D says X is HOH, but in reality it does not come down to him. It is all about the veto this week and that is the only way to secure your spot in the F3. Ky and X hug and X says they are winning when they need to. Ky says he knows he is on the bottom of the four and he is concerned about Azah. X says Ky’s fears are justified, because if he does not win veto then he could be going home. He says it is really all up to Ky. Xavier is talking to Azah and he says he is just talking to everyone. He says it does not matter if he puts Ky up, then Big D or Azah have to go up. Azah asks if he has a F2 with Ky and Xavier denies it. X says he thought Ky would have taken a shot at him last week. Azah cannot make up her mind how she feels about Ky and X. She says it puts her and Big D in a tough spot and they could be split up at the end of the week. She says if she and Big D are the nominations, then she will feel played. Big D is talking to X and he says he his scared and he is trying to make it to the F3. X says he is just evaluating things and he is evaluating what move will be best. X tells him in the F3 HOH, he does not know if Ky wins who he would take. X says they could take out one of the biggest competitors of the summer and he wants to plant a seed in Big D’s head. He wants Big D to vote out Ky and get all the blood on his hands. Big D does not know how he feels about cutting Ky yet. He has ties with him. Big D says it is hard to send someone home you love dearly. Xavier tells Big D just to think about that final three HOH competition and who he could beat…Kyland or Azah. It is time for the nomination ceremony! X’s first nominee is…Azah. His second nominee is…Kyland. X says Azah has made it this far without being nominated speaks about her social game. He says Ky has been a competitor and really nominations do not mean anything. Azah says it is funny the first time she is hitting the block she could be going home. She says there is no plan B, she has to win veto. Big D says because he is not on the block does not mean anything. He says veto means everything. X says if he wins veto then he will not use and let Big D decide who to take to F3, but does it matter if they take the shot now or next week. Ky says he can feel himself sitting in the F2 and he is getting chills. He just needs to win veto to get there.
  2. Previously, on Big Brother, the Cookout made history by making it to the final six, but it was time for them to start grilling each other. Kyland had made a deal with the guys and wanted to ride to the end with Xavier. But protecting his game, Ky also made a final three with Hannah and Tiffany. After cockadoodle dominating the HOH competition, Kyland became egg-xalted. Officially drawing a line in the sand, Ky chose his side and it appeared Tiffany had a bullseye on her back. It was a must win veto for Hannah and Tiff, but the Kylander captured it instead. At the veto meeting, Kyland sealed either Hannah or Tiffany’s fate. And there will be more than one Cookout member headed to jury. It’s a double eviction baby! The HG will be shocked when they find out they have to play a week’s worth of Big Brother in one night. All this right now on Big Brother! We pick up on day 69 after the veto meeting. Ky says he did not use veto because Tiff has broken trust not just with him, but the entire house. Hannah says she is not surprised, but she cannot be upset because she still has to navigate the rest of the game. Tiff actually believes she can stay, she just has a lot of work to do. She has to work on Big D and Xavier. Tiff is talking to Hannah and she says it is exciting to watch the season back. Hannah thinks it is unfair Tiff is the first to leave to jury because it was her masterplan to get them all there to this point. Tiff says what she did was ensure an African American would win BB and two would be sitting in the F2. Tiff is talking to Azah and she says she has to work on Derek. She thinks Derek wants her gone because he thinks she is coming after him. Tiff says Big D would not work with Hannah. Azah is just saying mmhmm and not saying much. Xavier and Ky are talking in front of Hannah and Big D and they are going on a guy’s trip and they are talking about who they would take and they were deciding between Christian, Derek X, Frenchie, Brent, and Travis. Big D says why would you not take me? Big D says they need him to be entertaining. Xavier says if there was a trip involving BB23, Big D would be part of the trip, but it is fun to poke at his ego a little because he takes things so seriously. Ky is in talking to Azah and he is just standing thinking. He says he is just thinking about the game as a whole and he is talking about random things. He says he has been philosophizing a lot. Azah says she does not always understand what Ky is talking about all the time. Xavier and Ky are talking about their motivation to make final 2. Ky says he has over a hundred grand in student loans and he is always trying to figure out how to take care of his family. The ability to help his parents and grandparents. Xavier says everything he has done has been motivated by his family. He made a promise to his brother that he would do what he could before his brother had a heart attack. There is not a single day that goes by when he does not think about his brother and his nephew. Tiff goes to talk to Big D in the HOH room. She says she has never been at someone’s mercy so bad in her life. Tiff says Hannah is cutthroat and she knows Hannah is going to go for that money. Big D says she has to worry about Xavier. Tiff does not feel good about Big D’s vote, but she thinks she has Azah. She has to convince Xavier that she is not just better for his game, but what is best for his game. We see her talking to Xavier and she tells him if she stays, she will still be Ky’s target. Xavier tells Tiff that Ky may want to take a shot at him and Tiff says if she is not there, then he might take a shot at X. Tiff says she is not unemotional about the game, but Hannah is emotional and she will go for the money. X says she would be a shield, but can he trust her. Xavier is talking to Big D. Big D says Tiff is trying her best and he says that Tiff told him everyone would vote for X at the end and Hannah would take either of the guys out. X says Hannah has shown she is a formidable opponent and she is well connected to the jury. Julie goes to greet the HG and she congratulates the Cookout on completing their mission. She asks Tiff why it was important to her and she says it was an amazing feat and they all had the same goal when they walked in and seen 5 faces that looked like their own. Julie asks X how he felt when they realized they had made it together. X says it was groundbreaking. He says he was sad to see Alyssa go, but it was their goal and he had happy and sad tears. Julie asks Big D if it was ever a challenge to keep the group together and achieve the mission. He says yes it was and it was worth it. He says everything they did was worth it and he is happy and he loves them all. Julie asks Hannah they almost all had a side alliance, but how difficult was her to say goodbye to Derek X. She says she was a hot mess because they each had someone who put all their trust and loyalty in them, but the Cookout always came first. Julie asks Ky how hard it was to play a personal game but also fulfill the mission of the Cookout. Ky says it added a layer to the game he never seen before and at times the mission conflicted with what was best for their personal game. He says it was worth it. Julie tells Azah they were the first six person alliance to make it intact. She asks if there was ever doubt. Azah says yeah, but she had faith in the alliance, even if she was not sure it could happen and they are all here and they cannot regret the decisions they made. We check in with jury. Britini and Derek X are talking and they hope Sarah Beth walks in and Brit says the only way it is not her is if Ky wins that HOH. SB walks in and she says it is tough to take that she is here and she is disappointed in herself and embarrassed. Derek X has mixed emotions about seeing SB. He did not want to see her win, but he did not want to see her yet. They go to watch the DVD. They see Tiff win HOH, then Xavier becoming the third nominee because of his punishment and then Tiff nominating Ky and SB. Brit asks how in the world SB went home. They see the coin flip from the coin of destiny and Tiff getting de-throned. We see the secret HOH’s nominations of Ky and SB. SB says Claire revealed that she was the secret HOH which means she could not win next HOH. Derek X says he did not know they could not win the next HOH. They see Hannah win veto and then using it on Xavier. Derek X and Brit says he should have been the target. They then see SB getting evicted and she talks about the goodbye messages. They show Azah talking about the mission and Ky talking about the secret alliance. SB lists the members of the Cookout and they talk about there has never been a black winner and Derek X says he did not know and SB says she empathizes with the mission. Derek X says it seems like a noble mission and he thinks it is impressive to keep the alliance together since week one. DX says he would be impressed if they make it to final six. SB says she understands the mission with Ky, but she is not ok with the lies he told that were unnecessary. She feels like there were a lot of conversations that she had with Ky that were empty. Brit says Ky is the most annoying to her and even though they are in an alliance, they have to take each other out. Brit says whoever gets Ky out will be the most impressive to her. Claire and Alyssa are about ready to hit the jury house. SB says if they were going to break up the six, they would have done it last week because there was no good reason to send her home over Kyland. Claire says it feels weird to have been put on the block and evicted by her closest ally in the game but she does not think there is much she could have done. Claire tells them it was a double eviction and she does not know who it is but she can guess. Alyssa comes in and she says double eviction was intense and eye opening and she thinks there are bigger targets than her. Alyssa says she definitely was the dim one. Claire says it was a wild week and they have to watch it and Claire says she had to throw the comp. The HG see Tiff win the HOH and they are all shocked that Tiff took her out. SB says that was messed up and Derek X says Tiff was the last person to win HOH and take Claire out. We see Tiff nominating Xavier and Alyssa, and then we see the veto that Alyssa won with the mini cocktails. SB says Tiff must have been devastated at this point and Claire says she was excited cause she thought Xavier was going home. We see Tiff name Claire as the replacement nominee and SB wants to know what she has been told and Claire tells her that Tiff told her the night before that she did not want to be the one to not take out an African American player. DX asks if Claire still wants Tiff to win and she says of course. Alyssa shows them the double eviction video and Hannah winning HOH and nominating Xavier and Alyssa. Alyssa says she thought she was a pawn and if X comes down then Ky is going up. We see Xavier killing the veto and winning. Brit says X has been throwing so many comps and Claire agrees. Claire says X is playing such a good game and Brit thinks he is playing an excellent game. We see X uses the veto on himself. We then see Alyssa being evicted. Alyssa says in her goodbye message that X came there for a bigger purpose. Ky told her that the rest of the HG were in an alliance and she should not feel dumb or played. Hannah hoped she understood and respected the reason. Alyssa wants to see Hannah in the F2 because people underestimate her. Alyssa says she respects the alliance and she loves that feels stupid and she completely respects the game. Brit says when the next HG arrives, the game has officially begun. It is time for the live vote and eviction! Tiff does her shoutouts and she says their display of black excellence and achievement made history and bound them together and she is honored. She thinks Tiff is the reason she is in the seat but she hopes they keep her. Hannah does her shoutouts and she says they came exactly what they came to do and it has been an utmost honor to play the game with them. She has nothing but positive to say about Tiff and she hopes they vote for her to stay. It is time to vote! Derek F sadly to evict Tiffany. Xavier votes to evict Tiffany. Azah votes to evict Tiffany. By a unanimous vote of 3-0, Tiff has been evicted from the Big Brother house. Tiff gives everyone hugs and tells them to be nice. Julie asks Tiff why she was the reason she was on the block and Tiff says because she waivered with trust and that is why. She just hoped she and Ky could get to the end, but she also loved Hannah. Julie asks Tiff if her not throwing HOH was why she was there and Tiff says yeah. She says it was not necessarily that she won, but the way she won. She would rather ask for forgiveness rather than permission. Julie asks if Tiff has regrets and she says no. She was ready to play, but she had a mission. Julie says she was always the mastermind, so is she mad that it was her to be the first to go? Tiff says it did her hurt feelings but she understands that made her a threat. Julie asks how she balanced personal play with their mission and Tiff says it was hard. She says she had moments where she realized they did not have a plan to get to the six and she had to come up with a plan. They needed a plan to keep the six or it could ruin her game. Julie sends Tiff off and she goes to the HG and tells them another person will be leaving. She says for the first time in BB history they are having back to back double evictions. She will see them in the BY soon for the next HOH. It is time for the HOH! They are going to play BB Ballers. They have 12 silver balls in the grass on the end of the ramp. They will retrieve a ball from their ball box and roll one ball to knock their silver balls off. The first two HG to knock them all off will advance to round 2. The winner of round 2 will be the next HOH! Azah and Hannah are doing well. Xavier is doing very well and five left. Hannah has three left. Azah has six left. Xavier is down to two balls. Hannah is down to two balls. Xavier is first to ring in. Ky is cheering them on and tells Big D not to give up. Azah has one more ball. Hannah has two more balls. Azah knocks her ball off and she rings in and she will advance to round 2 and face off against each other. Now Xavier and Azah will face off for HOH in part 2. In round 2, they must roll balls onto the grass. They will take 10 shots and the HG with the most balls on the grass will win. If there is a tie, then they will have a tie breaker question. Xavier and Azah both roll too hard on their first shot. They take the second shot and both are too hard still. They grab their third ball and they both miss. The fourth shot is off and they both miss again. Xavier and Azah roll their fifth ball and they both hit. The sixth ball is ready and Azah lands her ball and Xavier misses. The seventh ball is shot and they both land. They both missed the next shot. They both hit their next shot. Azah hits the next shot and wins HOH! Azah is ready to name her nominees and she is trying to keep her promises and she nominates Xavier and Hannah. The veto competition is next. The veto competition is What the Bleep? They will be shown an eviction clip with a word bleeped out and they will be given a word and they have to decide if that word is true or false. After 7 questions, whoever has the most points will win. Ky and Xavier end up tied and they have to go to a tie breaker. Ky ends up winning veto! Ky has decided to use the veto on Xavier and Big D is the only option as a replacement. It is time for the live vote and eviction! Big D and Hannah do their eviction speeches. It is time to vote! Ky sadly votes to evict Hannah. Xavier votes to evict Hannah. By a unanimous vote, Hannah has been evicted. She is emotional and gives hugs. Julie says when Azah nominated Hannah her face dropped. Why? Hannah thought Azah’s target would have been Ky and she was shocked that she did not initially put him on the block. Hannah says Azah should have kept her because they guys are together. Julie says Azah told her Xavier was the target and Hannah does not believe that Azah had a deal with Ky, but Hannah knew that Ky wanted to move forward together with strong competitors and she was not worthy apparently, but Azah did not know that. Julie asks why there was no path to finale without Tiff in the game? Hannah says she was close with Tiff and she had to find her own path and she tried to make a deal but Azah did not know Ky would use the veto on X and she was collateral. Julie asks how hard it was to play a personal game versus the mission. Hannah says there were hard times when she had to send home Derek X and Claire, but the Cookout always came first. She feels like a winner and now there will be black winner. Julie asks her what the best part of playing Big Brother. Hannah says she wanted to play cutthroat but then she seen five other faces that looked like her and it changed and the best part was getting them all to final six.

  4. We pick up on Day 66 after the nomination ceremony and Kyland has nominated Tiffany and Hannah. Tiff is his primary target because he cannot trust her. He says it is strange to nominate a member of the Cookout. Tiff does feel betrayed. She thought their final three deal was sealed. She knows if she does not win veto, then she is going home. Derek F is happy Tiff is on the block and he cannot wait to get her out of the house. Xavier says if he had won, then he would have targeted Tiff, but this keeps his hands clean and gives him another week. Hannah says she is shocked. If Ky does not need their final three as protection, then that means he has protection elsewhere. Hannah goes to talk to Kyland and she tells him she is shocked by who she is next to, but she thinks she is not the target. Ky says Xavier and Tiff did not want to move forward in the game together and Hannah says why does he care? She thinks the guys are working together. Hannah says if Ky’s goal is to walk out in second place and lose to Xavier, then he is doing a great job. Hannah says Ky may be ready to hand his game over on a silver platter to X, but she is not. Hannah says she needs to fight for this veto. Big D is talking to Xavier and he says he feels bad for them and for Ky. He says this is not as easy as he thought it would be. X says he never thought it would be easy, and this is the stage where they have to take shots at each other. X feels he has a better chance against Big D or Ky because of jury management. Big D says hopefully Ky does not try to do any tricky stuff and all the guys are together and sticking it out to the end. Hannah is talking to Tiff and Tiff says after Claire left, she did not trust anyone else in the game besides Hannah. Hannah tells her after today, it is clear the guys are working together. Hannah and Tiff believe Azah will be the replacement nominee and they need her to win and take one of them down because it is the only way to keep the ladies of the Cookout safe. Hannah is talking to Azah and Azah says she did not know he would come for Tiffany. Hannah says she did not either and she thinks the ladies are in trouble because they will be picked off going forward and they need to try and get control and send a guy home. Azah says she does not see a way for her or Hannah to make final two unless she wins veto and she is concerned because she has not been able to win. Hannah says she would like to see a black woman win, even if it is not her. Azah say she has a good relationship with Big D and X and she has a decision to make. She can roll with the guys or the women, but first she needs to win the veto to even get a chance to make that decision. Tiff has thought a lot about how life changing winning Big Brother would win. She knows she is Ky’s target and her back is against the wall. The best thing she can do for her son is to bring home the veto. She needs wants and needs to provide for her son. It is time for the veto competition! It is time for BB Comics. We see Lord of the Litrine, Derek X and Sarah Breath. We see Big Z snores and Wizards of Azah. They have to find all 16 authentic BB comics. They will fly down a zip line and peek into a BB Comics studio and they have to place them in the right order and the correct comics. If they are wrong, they will continue to find the correct order and comics. Fastest time will win the POV! Big D is up first and he wants to win. Before he finds the differences, he wants to get the correct order. Big D thinks he has the order correct and now he is going to figure out the difference. We see Claire Bear and Fliptonite is Christian. We have Whitney with her Glamour Slammer and Big D notices the workout top on the comic book cover. The Bikini Genie is Alyssa and he is so impressed by hers. We also have Tiffy Toes. Big D thinks he is correct and he has one wrong and it is Tiffany. Big D says of course he gets stuck on Tiffany’s comic. She is even coming for him in a comic book form. He makes the switch and locks in his time. Ky says it is important for him to win so he can keep all the control in his hands. He is trying really hard not to get distracted by these comic book covers because he is a huge fan. He gets the order right, then wants to focus on finding the differences. Ky sees The Kylander and he is excited by his comic. Brent is The Fright Attendant and Ky says if he seen him, he would opt for the train. He thinks Sarah Breath’s costume is “cool”. He is pretty confident about most of his comics. Ky locks in but one is wrong and it is Whitney’s. He quickly fixes the comics from a spade over the eye to a heart and he locks in his time. Azah says if she wins this week, then she will have the two votes needed to keep a girl in the house. Azah says she likes her comic. The Denialator is Britini’s comic. Frenchie is Mr. French. Azah is feeling like she has most of the comics correct. Azah is having a hard time finding the differences between Britini’s and Hannahs. She sees the taglines are different on Britini’s comics and she is also missing Sarah Breath’s comics. She takes one more look and fixes those two and buzzes in and she is correct. Xavier is up next and he wants to win to get another comp win and to keep nominations the same to make sure Tiffany goes home. X has been waiting for his comic The X-plorer. He says the Bikini Genie made him feel some type of way. Xavier says this is not easy. Even if your are good at attention to detail, you are also throwing in a zip line and the order of things. He has a lot wrong and has to keep making changes. He keeps buzzing in and he is getting nowhere. Tiffany is up and she knows she is the target and she has to win. She says if she does not win, the chances of her going home are probably very high. She loves her comic book. Tiffany seems to be moving pretty well and she buzzes in and she has over half wrong. Tiff needs to start figuring out what she has wrong and make corrections. She buzzes in and she is now only one away. She needs to figure out and she says if she does then she knows she has this. Hannah is next and she says it is important for her to win veto to guarantee her safety. She has Oceana Hannah and her tagline is she will serve up a hot bowl of Chaddah. She needs to make the most out of each zip line trip. Hannah thinks she has the order and she starts looking for the differences. Travis’s comic is Cow-Abunga. She says that image might haunt her nightmares for a few months. Hannah hits her button and she is correct. She is proud of herself. Big D finished with a time of 14:05. Hannah finished with a time of 14:06. Big D is in the lead. Xavier finished with a time of 20:56. Big D is shocked because he is never in the lead. He might actually win! Tiffany finished with a time of 40:00 because she timed out. She hopes Azah can win this. Azah finished with a time of 20:22. Big D is still in the lead. Ky would love to see Big D get a win but it is too important for him not to have the power. Ky finished with a time of 11:44 which means he has won the POV! He says he is keeping all the power in his hands and this feels nice. Hannah says it sucks she lost but she needs to figure out how to keep herself, and hopefully Tiff in the house. Tiff is hoping she can talk Ky into keeping her in the house. Big D is very proud of himself for getting second place but he does not want people to start seeing him as a threat. He does not need to become a comp beast and make people worried. Ky and X is talking and Ky says obviously he has to put him up and send him home and they chuckle. Ky says winning veto gives him a chance to look at his options. Ky says next week X or Hannah would be more likely to win HOH. Ky considers taking Hannah down to get in her good graces. They discuss putting up Big D or Azah. X would prefer Ky to leave nominations the same and he does not want to lose numbers if Big D were to be a replacement nominee. Ky needs to consider all options. Tiff is talking to Ky and making her pitch. She says she did not just lose the veto, it was a wakeup call. She is sorry where she got them to a point where she has to ask him to trust her again. She says she does not have a life in this house without him. Tiff says if she has any chance of staying in the house is if she can get Ky to turn around. She says if she stays, then she would work with him and only him. She says she will always have his back and he goes wherever she goes. Ky tells her he believes she would be loyal to him in the game. He tells us that promise is enticing because she is a strong player. However, she leans towards her own self interests and that is not someone a partner or teammate can count on when it matters. Hannah is talking to Ky. She says she will offer him whatever she can so maybe she can work something out to keep Tiffany here and they can both stay at the end of the week. Hannah offers not to come after him next week and she would use the veto on him. Hannah says if she were to win veto at F4 she would use it on him or make sure he makes it to the F3 if she can. She tells him she would really like to not to go home. Ky says Hannah has proven herself to be a strong competitor, but can he trust her to vote Tiff out. It is time for the veto meeting! Ky has decided not to use the POV and he is sorry for any pain this has caused and he wishes them both the best of luck. Ky says he takes no pleasure in being the first person to send a member of the Cookout home. Ky says Tiff going home is the best strategic move to get himself and Xavier to the final two. Hannah hates that she is next to Tiff and it is scary to play this game without her, but she is not underestimating Tiff to not get those votes. Big D says he has waited so long to get her out. He says Tiff is a queen, but he is a joker and jokers get the last laugh. Tiff says she understands why they are afraid of her, but she came to play and she will work to come up with something to stay.

  6. Previously, on Big Brother, the Cookout had a plan from the jump to make it to final six, and Claire was poised to be their next casualty. Before the live vote, Julie unleashed some double trouble, so after the Cookout took out Claire, only Alyssa stood between them and their goal. With Comics week unleashed, the power was up for grabs and Hannah was the HOH hero, so she put up X next to the Cookout’s final target. At a puzzling POV, Xavier excelled and he officially sealed Alyssa’s fate. After the second eviction of the night, the Cookout made history. Tonight, with only the six remaining, the Cookout finally goes to battle against each other. Plus, a new HOH will be crowned as BB Comics week continues. And who will be nominated for eviction? Find out right now on Big Brother! We pick up on Day 65 and the Cookout is celebrating their achievements. Tiff says they made it. They did it. All of their hard work, perseverance, and determination, they stuck together. Azah says final six. The Cookout made. They have made history. Hannah says she is so happy right now. She could cry and it is very surreal. She is not only part of the final six, but she is part of the historic season. Hannah says they had to win HOH and veto to get there. Hannah says things should have been smooth sailing, but she had to put up Kyland and that is where things got messy. Hannah says Kyland was frustrated but she does not understand why he was fighting her on it when Alyssa was going home. Tiffany did not want Hannah to put up Ky and she told Hannah she did not think Ky would go after her this week. Tiffany wants to talk to Ky and he does not understand why they need to talk and she says to keep up appearances and he says why? Ky tells us this is annoying. Tiff says Ky is steaming and she is not sure what he is upset about. She says this is not the time to freak out and Ky says he is just irritated. We see Alyssa get evicted and Derek F still celebrating and he says it is amazing they made history. Tiff says the best alliance to ever do it and Hannah says day one. Tiff says they had each other’s back, but now it is an individual game and she is willing to do what it takes to get to the end and win. Xavier says BB23 will crown the first African American winner and he says he put in a lot of time and effort into this season. He stays this starts phase 2, the BB end game, and he needs to do what he can to make sure he is sitting in the F2. Tiff is talking to Ky and she tells us double eviction went so fast and she wants to make sure she and Ky are on the same page so they do not have any issues moving forward. Ky says he just did not understand why they were keeping up appearances. Ky says she was frustrated earlier because it felt like Tiff was more worried about Alyssa’s jury vote over their relationship. Ky and Tiff hug it out. Tiff is talking to Xavier and she tells him she feels relieved and she will always remember this moment. Tiff says putting Claire on the block was a tough week emotionally and she knows people were upset. Xavier says she kept her word. Tiff says she feels like they are all threats in different ways. Tiff wants to make sure if Xavier wins HOH, he will not come after her. Tiff says Xavier is beasting through HOH competitions and if she wins HOH she will go after him because he could win the jury over if he makes final two. Xavier says this is buttering his biscuits and he might need to take a shot at her first. Ky and Hannah are talking and she wants to do damage control before this festers and gets bigger. Ky says he is probably not looking to work with Hannah long term. Derek F and Xavier are talking and DF wants Tiff out. He is praying he can win this comp and he asks X to throw the comp to him so he can take the shot at Tiff and put her on the block with Hannah. If Hannah comes down he would put up Ky. Ky and X have a private convo and hug and congratulate each other. X says this HOH is going to be important. Ky and X agree they have each other’s backs. Ky says he now has to make true final decisions on who he wants to sit next to and that person is Xavier. Ky says he only wants to go to the end with the best, and this point it is Xavier. X says this F2 is good for his game and he thinks if he sits next to Ky in the final two, then he can win. He says a strong competitor working for you is beneficial. Tiff wants to win this HOH because she does not trust anyone and she is not sure who is taking a shot at her. Ky says this is the first time they actually get to play and this power is more important than ever. Hannah says she cannot play and she is hoping whoever wins will not have her high on their list of targets. Derek F says it is down to the Cookout and it is every man or woman for themselves. It is time for the HOH competition! The five HG are in an “electrical cage” and they have grab eggs and work them up a fence and then put them on a board to roll them down a ramp and knock over power levers. The first one to knock down all three wins HOH! Azah says she has no comp wins and she would love to see pictures of her parents and get that letter from her family. X says we have seen him throw comps, but since it is now final six, throwing competitions will cease. Hannah is cheering them on and they are all moving at a decent pace but there are several eggs dropped as well. DF says he is going to have to take his time so he does not drop his egg. X says if he cannot win, then he wants Ky to win. Tiff says she braids all day and she thinks this will not be a problem. But getting the egg down the ramp and knocking down a lever is challenging for her. Ky slides an egg down and it stops right in front of a lever but does not knock it down. Azah says she is doing an awesome job with the eggs, but the ramp is messing her up. She says she cannot get the egg rolling under control. Big D is talking to his eggs to make sure they take their time and walk down the runway. DF gets his first lever knocked over. Azah, X, and Tiff are still struggling. Ky says carefully dropping the egg from one hand to the other can save him some time and the faster he gets the egg to the slot gives him more time to figure out the ramp. Ky knocks down his first lever. Tiff says she sees Ky doing well and she feels good about that. She says a few days ago, she, Ky, and Hannah made a final three deal. Tiff says with that F3 they can keep numbers and run this game. Hannah does not want Xavier to win so he can go this week. Hannah is rooting for Tiffany to win because she is her number one ally, but if Tiff cannot win, then she is cheering for Ky. Ky slides his egg down and he now hits the second lever. Ky has 2 levers and DF has 1 lever. Xavier is working and he finally gets his first lever. Ky has an egg rolling down the ramp and it breaks right in front of the third lever. DF gets his second lever and he is now tied with Ky. Big D says these eggs better get it together and listen to him. Ky says he almost is inclined to let Big D take the win. Big D slides his egg down and it slides off the side. He is getting very frustrated with the eggs and he is about to give them a whooping. He tells them to focus and listen to his voice and hit the levers. Azah slides an egg down and she knocks down her first lever. Ky is working another egg down and he is waiting for Big D but his best bet is to go ahead and win. Xavier just misses his second lever. Ky hits the third lever and he wins HOH! Ky says having three HOH wins in one summer is pretty cool. Big D says he cannot do anything but shake his head because it was right there and he could have won. He is ok with Kyland winning, but he is bummed. Ky says this is a complicated spot to be and a dream come true. He says the key feels heavy because he is the first to take a shot at an alliance member. Tiff feels really good about Ky being HOH because they made a deal to work together until the end. Hannah says even though she threw Kyland on the block, she is confident she can smooth things over with him and she says neither she nor Tiff should see the block this week. Big D says one egg. Just one egg. He cannot win in this house. He says he is frustrated. He does not want to skate by, he wants to be a threat. He is trying to figure out how he is going to continue in the game and fight for his position. Ky says he knows how bad Big D wanted to win an HOH but it did not happen and now he has to make a very difficult position. Big D says he does not know how he can walk into the final week with no wins. Xavier says he just finalized a final 2 deal with Ky and then he won. He hopes Ky takes a shot at Tiff so he does not get any blood on his hands. Ky and X talk and they talk about Hannah maybe being able to win veto and she might need to sit next to Tiff. Tiff is going to talk to Ky and she needs him to see there are bigger targets in this house. She says X will win this game if he moves forward. She needs Ky to stay true to the F3 with herself and Hannah. She tells him she is still committed to their deal. Ky asks Tiff if she has a preferred F4. She says she feels like X and Big D should go first because she does not want to compete against him. She says Ky is the only competitor she would take to the end, even if she loses. Ky says he might not be safe next week. Tiff reminds Ky that Claire is in jury convincing them to vote for Xavier to win. Ky says she has a point and Xavier is a tough competitor and is someone who could be tough to beat. Hannah is not sure if she smoothed things over with Ky, but she is not sure she can trust him. She is hoping he sees there are bigger targets in the game and if he does not nominate her, then she will vote however he wants. Ky wants to know what offer is on the table if she has to be nominated. She says he is an information collector and she thinks he is trying to gauge how close she is to Tiff and she needs to show her cards. She tells him X would be her target this week. Ky says he has made multiple deals but they have reached a point in the game where lines have to be drawn and this is not a decision he takes lightly. It is time for the nomination ceremony! Ky’s first nominee is…Tiffany. His second nominee is…Hannah. Ky says this decision has nothing to do with loss of respect or love, but a loss of trust. Ky says Tiff has repeatedly said and done things to break his trust and she is someone he does not feel safe having in this game. Xavier says after four straight weeks, he has not been nominated and Tiff is the biggest threat to his personal game. Hannah is shocked and sad and it absolutely sucks she is next to her number one ally. She is not giving up because she can win veto. Tiff says Ky is the smartest idiot she has ever seen and now she has to go out and fight for her life.
  7. Previously, on Big Brother, the Cookout had one mission, to make it to the final six. After hand picking who left week after week, Claire was their next target, but Claire’s best friend and HOH Tiffany had a different plan so she targeted Alyssa instead. At a micro veto competition, Alyssa got a big victory, leaving Tiffany caught between a cookout and a Claire. Knowing what needed to be done, Tiffany made a heartfelt confession to her closest confidant. At the veto meeting, Tiff chose the Cookout over her best friend. Tonight, Claire or Xavier will be sent to jury, but they wont be alone. It’s double eviction night baby! Will the Cookout make history and accomplish their mission? Find out right now on Big Brother! Julie greets us and we are less than three weeks away from finale night. We pick up after the veto meeting and Alyssa is shocked that Tiff was comfortable enough to put up Claire and she is confident her and Xavier can get the votes to blindside Tiffany. Claire says she knows she has an uphill battle and it sucks that Tiffany put her there. Tiff says this sucks, but before there was a Claire, there was a mission. Derek F, Xavier, and Azah are talking about next week, Azah asks Xavier if Alyssa wins HOH, who does he want to leave. Azah wants Kyland and Derek F wants Tiffany and Xavier is leaning heavily towards Tiffany. Xavier says he and Tiff were close allies, but more and more things are adding up and it might be in his best interest to take that shot at Tiffany. Alyssa is talking to Derek F and Azah and she says that if Claire goes home, everyone left will be minorities. She says that has never happened. We then see Alyssa talking to Hannah too. Hannah is talking to Azah and she wants to throw Claire a sympathy vote and she has something else planned. Hannah says she can blame the vote on Kyland so if Alyssa wins HOH she could target Kyland for them. Hannah wants to make sure her, Tiff, and Azah are safe. We see Hannah talking to Alyssa about Ky maybe voting out Xavier. Alyssa says it is scary to think this could be a double eviction. She says everyone should be prepared to leave the house Thursday. It is time for the first eviction of the night! Julie informs the HG that the jury will be a little fuller than just one more joining them. They will experience a week worth of Big Brother in one night. Xavier does his shoutouts. Xavier says he has discussed with them how keeping him in the game, but if they believe it is better to keep Claire then he understands. Also, if he is eviction, he is taking Lucious with him. Claire does her shoutouts. Claire says HG she finds herself out of words because Xavier is loyal and trustworthy and in three weeks he will be $750,000 richer because he is playing a good game and she will make sure jury knows that as well. It is time to vote! Alyssa votes to evict Claire. Hannah votes to evict Xavier. Derek F sadly evicts Claire. Azah votes to evict Claire. Kyland sadly votes to evict Queen Claire. By a vote of 4-1, Claire has been evicted from the Big Brother house! Claire says she will give everyone hugs on finale night and she wishes them luck. Julie asks Claire about Tiffany’s decision to nominate here. Claire says she understands her decision and a lot of times POC are not looked out for in the game. Julie asks Claire about her speech and she says she was trying to show people Xavier is a threat to win and she wanted to look out for Tiff and Hannah. Claire’s final thoughts are the game has so many highs and lows and she has no regrets but she wishes she could have gotten a little further. It is time for the new HOH! This HOH is called Crash! Boom! Pow! The HG will be shows images and then they will be asked a question and they will answer using one of the six tiles in their phone booth. They get one point for each correct answers and most points wins. The first image is up and the question is which word was seen the most? Derek F answers Boom! Everyone else answered Wow! Everyone gets a point except Derek F. The second image is shown and the question is which word was seen exactly twice? Azah answers Boom and everyone else answers Zap. The correct answers is Zap and everyone gets a point except Azah gets a point. The third image is up and the question is Which word was seen in the top right position? Azah and Alyssa answer Pow and everyone else answers Crash. Kyland, Xavier, Derek F, and Hannah each get a point. The fourth image is shown and the question is which words was seen exactly once? Derek F and Hannah answer boom. Azah answers pow. Ky answers wow. Xavier answers zap. Alyssa answers crash. The correct answer is boom. The fifth image is up and the question is which words was seen the most? Azah and Ky answer pow. Derek F and Xavier answer zap. Alyssa answers boom. Hannah answers crash. The correct answer is pow. The sixth image is up and the question is which words was surrounded by zap? Alyssa and Hannah answer wham. Xavier answers zap. Ky answers crash. Derek F says wow. Azah says power. The final image is up and the question is which word was missing? Everyone answers boom except xavier who answers zap. The cforrect answer is boom which means Hannah has won HOH! It is time for the live nominations! Hannah says she loves every one of them and this is not personal, just what is best for her game. Hannah nominates Xavier and Alyssa and she says Claire was right, Xavier is a threat. It is time for the POV competition! Kyland will be sitting out. This competition is called Logo, Let’s Go. They will race to complete their BB Comics logo puzzle. They have to put their puzzle together at the end of the lane. The first HG to assemble their puzzle win POV! Xavier is making quick work of his puzzle and is smoking everyone. Tiffany and Hannah are doing well, but Xavier is too far ahead and he has won the POV! It is time for the live veto meeting! Xavier has decided to use the POV on himself. Hannah must now name a replacement nominee. Hannah nominates Kyland. It is time for the second vote and eviction! Kyland says he respects their decisions for their personal game and Alyssa is beautiful. Alyssa says people who would have voted for her to win left pre-jury and if they kept her, she might get one vote and if they keep Ky, then they can keep doing what he says. It is time to vote! Azah can not win a comp but she can vote to evict Alyssa! Tiffany votes to evict Alyssa. Xavier votes to evict Kyland. Derek F sadly to evict his best friend and co-host Alyssa. By a vote of 3-1, Alyssa has been evicted from the Big Brother house! Julie says Alyssa did not looked shock and she figured this was the plan last week and it was not a surprise. Julie asks Alyssa if she got betrayed by anyone and she says Hannah, but she thinks Claire planted ideas in her head. Julie asks Alyssa if she trusted anyone besides Xavier and she says no. She says the Kings were always a target. Julie asks if she would have taken Xavier to final two and she says she would have taken him to final three but not to final two. Alyssa’s final thoughts are she was glad to be on the Kings team and she is proud of herself and just being on the show is a win for her. Julie reminds us that next week is another double eviction as we go from 6 down to 4 and the jury becomes a little larger.
  8. Previously, on Big Brother, the Cookout alliance masterfully stayed hidden because they were each working with duos outside the group. After Kyland said goodbye to his pawn partner, the Cookout planned to takeout Claire next and Tiffany seemed on board with not winning HOH so they could target her BFF. But at the HOH competition, Tiffany refused to throw it, giving the former queen once again and her plan was to keep her non-Cookout companion safe. The Cookout was not happy with Tiffany going rogue and knowing his friend Alyssa would be targeted, he was especially PO’d. At the nomination ceremony Tiffany officially set her sights on Alyssa. Tonight, will the POV help Tiffany complete her plan? Or will one of the nominees be able to save themselves from the block? And the Cookout is about to be roasted! We pick up on Day 59 after the nomination ceremony and Tiffany has nominated Alyssa and Xavier. She knows the Cookout wanted to target Claire, but since this is her HOH she is not targeting Claire, so Alyssa is out the door. Alyssa is not surprised but she does not know where Tiffany’s head is and she needs to win this veto. Claire says this is ideal and they will get to split up another duo and she will be safe. Xavier says Claire was the intended target, but Tiffany took it upon herself to win HOH and her selfish motivation has him seeing the block for the third week in a row and he is not happy. Alyssa and Xavier are talking about who they might pick if they get Houseguest Choice. Alyssa thinks he should pick Hannah and he says she is close with Tiffany. Xavier thinks it is better to pick someone he can beat like Big D or Azah. Xavier says he is making Alyssa think he is the target to protect the Cookout. He says he should not have to do this because it should have been Claire and Tiffany, but now he has to work hard to rectify this. Hannah tells Tiff that she did great on her speech and Claire is there and she says if Alyssa comes down? Tiff says she does not want to nominate a third person. Tiff tells us Alyssa cannot win POV or she will be in a tough spot because the only person outside of the Cookout is Claire. Big D is talking to Alyssa and she asks him if he would compete for her in veto if she chooses him. We see that she took him off the block when she won chopping block roulette and she says it is time for her to collect some favors. Big D tells Alyssa he would use the veto on her if he wins, but that will not happen because he could not risk Tiffany putting someone else up in the Cookout. He just does not trust Tiffany to do what needs to be done. Big D is talking to X and X says this is an individual game. Big D says everyone knows what they have to do and X says Tiff made him mad. He says he has thrown competitions and sacrificed things and he has been a team player. X says what if he wins POV and takes Alyssa down and forces Tiff to either put up Claire, which would ruin her game, or put up someone from the Cookout, which also ruins her game. X feels like his kindness is being taken advantage of. Big D and Azah are talking and Big D is cleaning and Azah is cleaning. She likes singing at home, and it helps in the song. We see random singing from Azah, Hannah, and Big D. It is time to pick players for the POV competition! Tiffany draws HG choice and she chooses…Hannah. Xavier draws Big D. Alyssa draws Azah. The HG are lounging or sleeping or talking and they hear Zingbot say good morning you idiots! Zingbot calls the HG to the BY. Zingbot says well look at this bunch of losers. He says usually his job is hard, but they make it very, very easy. Alyssa…you are from Florida the sunshine state which is ironic considering you’re so dim! To be clear, he is calling her dumb! Xavier, he is going to reveal his secret…you have a crush. All season long you’ve been getting lost in their eyes, watching their body, and staring at their ass. Wait…that is your reflection. He has been zinging for over a decade and it never gets old. But you know what has…Tiffany! Four score and seven zings ago. Big D says Tiffany is old. OMG, nobody move, we are all in danger. I’ve spotted bigfoot. My bad, that’s just…Claire! Houseguests, he has a joke for them. Knock knock! Who is there? Hannah! Hannah who? Exactly! Booor-zing. Azah says she forgot she was in her alliance but that doesn’t mean anything. Big D has made quite a mark on the Big Brother house this summer…too bad it is in the toilet. Tiff says the only thing he does is get on her nerves. As a robot, he can accurately predict the future. The following things will never happen, time travel, teleportation, Xavier going on a date with…Azah! Kyland! Listening to him talk is like sitting next to a brooke. An endless babbling brooke. Shut the F*ck up! X says the more he talks the more people wonder what he is saying. Big D says he never shuts up but he is so cute. Zing has decided to become a Zingfluencer on Zingstagram. The HG must stack 21 cocktails on a table in a pyramid. But it is not so easy. They are huge, the cocktails are micro sized. Tiffany needs to win to make sure Alyssa stays on the block so she does not have a difficult decision to make. Alyssa knows she needs this so she is making sure her cocktails are in a perfectly straight line. X wants himself or Alyssa to win so Tiffany is forced to choose between Claire or a Cookout member. Big D wants to win to make sure nominations stay the same because he does now know what Tiffany might do. Hannah wants to win this to build her resume and make sure Alyssa does not win so they can send her home. Azah says if she wins she can take Xavier down or leave noms the same to make sure Alyssa goes home this week. Alyssa is close and on her top couple of rows but they fall. Tiff says she is a phlebotomist and her hands are as steady as they come. Big D has one cocktail to place and he knocks everything over and he is frustrated. X says it looks like a college frat party with cocktails everywhere. He says everything is going so badly you cannot help but laugh. Alyssa gets close and she is knocking stuff over. She says if something falls she is just going to start from scratch. Hannah says she has always wanted to be a surgeon but since she cannot hold these tweezers still, there is no way that will be her career. Alyssa is so annoyed because it falls every time she gets close. She needs to focus and not get discouraged. Tiff and Alyssa are both very close and Ky and Claire are watching and Ky says this is wild. Tiff knocks her stack over and Alyssa places her last mini cocktail and she has won the POV! Tiff says this is the worst predicament for her to be in. X says that is what you get Tiffany. And he did not even have to win the POV. He says that is what she gets. Zingbot thanks Alyssa for helping him go viral and tells them goodbye morons! Big D and X and Azah are talking and Big D is nervous he could be a replacement nominee. Big D says Tiff could make a selfish move and put one of the boys from the Cookout on the block and send one of them home. X tells Big D if Tiff were to do that she would be losing four votes if she were to make final two. Tiff says Murphy’s law is the story of her life. She says she knows people think that is what she deserves. Tiff says if Claire has to go, then she has to go. Tiffany says for her own personal game she would choose Claire over the Cookout, but she made a commitment to the Cookout and now she just has to figure out how to tell Claire. Hannah does not want Tiff to tell Claire about the Cookout. Big D and X are talking about Tiffany and her selfish move and if she does not put up Claire they are going to tear the house down. Hannah comes in and tells them Tiffany is fine and she knows Claire has to go up. They do not want Tiff to expose the Cookout. Xavier is glad Tiff will name Claire the nominee but he is concerned how she might go about it. He does not want the Cookout exposed because if Alyssa finds out and considering she can compete in the next HOH, she might be upset with him. Tiffany has a talk with Claire and she says her target was Alyssa. And she cannot be the person to put up Hannah, Kyland, Derek F, or Azah. She does not want to be the one to sit them beside each other. Tiff says she wants to be as honest as she can but not jeopardize anyone else’s game. She wants Claire’s respect and she has the utmost respect for Claire. Tiff says she cares about Claire and she does not want to lie to her. Claire asks Tiff if she is an alliance with them. Tiffany tells Claire that she had her own personal feelings about how she wanted to play the game. Claire says she understands where Tiff is coming from and she cannot fight her on this. Tiff says this was the hardest decision she ever had to make in the game and Claire says she understands. Claire says she has so much respect for Tiff and Tiff says she wants her to fight and come out guns blazing. Claire says she will fight in case there is a chance. It is time for the veto meeting! Alyssa has decided to use the POV on herself. Tiffany must now name a new HG as a replacement nominee. Tiffany says this is a very difficult decision, but she is choosing her nomination with Claire. Alyssa is so proud of herself and she wants to keep up this momentum and win next HOH. Tiffany wanted to keep Claire safe and remain loyal to the Cookout, but we cannot always get what we want. Claire says she may have gone on the block like a lamb, but she will go out like a lion and do what she needs to stay. It is that time of the year! Will the Cookout complete their mission and make the final six? Find out tomorrow on Big Brother!
  9. Tonight, the acts will be competing in the semi-finals for the final five spots. Terry greets us and the audience and the judges. 1aChord is our first act of the night and they are a trio of singers. Tavis, Julian, and Christoff take the stage for their performance and they sing Every Breath You Take by The Police. Howie says 1aChord was great and it had more dynamics and he loved the production and they stepped it up. Heidi says this was so amazing! She loved what they did this to song and the buildup blew the roof off the building and she thinks they did a better job than Sting. Sofia says 1aChord was spectacular. They took it to another level and it was amazing and she loved them. Simon says the vocals were insanely good and they just laid down a marker for what they are looking for in the final and that performance could change their life. UniCircle Flow is up next and they dance on unicycles. They take the stage for their performance. Heidi says it was amazing and they showed how diverse they can be and they had so much fun. Sofia loved the change of music Unicircle Flow because it was more modern. Simon says he thought their last performance was boring, because of the music, and this was a different act and they gave themselves a chance. Howie totally agrees but America has to vote. Lea Kyle is our next act and she is a quick change artist. She takes the stage for her performance. Heidi says she proved again today that she is the best quick change artist they have ever seen and she is a million dollar act. Sofia says this was the best and she looked amazing. Simon says that performance from Lea Kyle defined what the show was about. He says it was a million dollar act and this could be a huge act in the Vegas. Howie says what she did was a show stopper and she deserves a stage in Vegas. Kabir Singh is a comedian and is ready to take the stage for his performance. Simon buzzed him part way through the act and when he did that he thinks it made the act better. Howie says comedy is hard and there is a lot of pressure and it did not go as well as he wanted. Heidi says Kabir has delivered every time and the audience enjoyed him and he is so cute and likable. Sofia says she did not like today. He was amazing and she loved him so much before and she was so excited but there was something weird in his energy. The Northwell Nurse Choir is our next act to take the stage and they sing Don’t Give Up on Me by Andy Grammer. Howie says with that song he just touched ten million people and they are healing everyone. Heidi says the Northwell Nurse Choir spoils us by healing them and then performing for them. Sofia says that song was amazing and it was perfection. Simon says he did not like it, he loved it. He says they make people feel so good and the songs define them. Next up is Peter Antoniou and he is a mentalist. He takes the stage for his performance. Heidi thinks he has the total package and he is perfect for Vegas. Simon says something went wrong with Sofia and Howie says he should not have left Howie out. Simon asks Peter if something went wrong and Peter says things can go wrong and it is scary being on AGT. Simon hits his X and Terry says Peter will need some luck to get through to the next round. Victory Brinker is next and she is an opera singer. She takes the stage for her performance. Simon says that song is like climbing the tallest mountain and she conquered it. She loves that she is talented and fearless and they need that in the finals. Heidi says Victory is amazing and they are so proud they found her. Sofia says that song was a great choice and it was spectacular. Howie says he watches her and it does not make sense and she has a powerful voice and she has a good chance of winning. Chapkidz is the next and they are dancers. They are 35 individuals but when they are on stage they become one. Heidi says wow, wow, wow, wow, wow. She says each move they do is precise and perfect. Howie thinks they are going to the finals. Simon says he thinks Chapkidz has been the best performance of the night so far. He says they are so talented and so amazing and they have worked so hard. He absolutely loves them. Sofia says this was such a treat because this is the kind of music she listens to all day. Next we have Rialcris and they are a strength act from Colombia. They take the stage for their act. Simon buzzes them during one of their stunts. Sofia says she thought it was creative and very exciting and dangerous and contemporary. It was amazing. Simon says the production was great, but he thinks Rialcris has shown the same act every time. He does not see an improvement. Heidi says his family must be proud and she liked it. Howie says they took strength, trust, and danger and made it work. Josh Blue is up and he is a comedian and he takes the stage for his set. Sofia says he is so funny and every time he comes he makes them laugh. She says he is brilliant and so inspirational. Simon says he is just funny and very naughty and he loves him. Howie says this is not just the year of comedy, it is the year of Josh Blue. He loves how he was live in the act by reacting to the audience and that is comedy gold. Our final act of the night is Brooke Simpson. She takes the stage and performs Bad Habits by Ed Sheeran. Simon says this had a shaky start but the second half was spectacular and she is an amazing singer and she deserves to be in the finals. Sofia says Brooke is so confident and she was born to do this. Heidi says she loves her too and she shines so bright it is almost blinding. Howie says it may have started shaky but she ended with a bang and she took America back.
  10. Previously, on Big Brother, after taking a punishment, Xavier was on the block as a third nominee and HOH tiffany gave him so me company. With the coin of destiny in play, Tiff plotted with Hannah to have her unsuspecting ally take the crown. After Claire won the game changing coin in the high rollers room, destiny was on her side as the power was flipped and Claire made sure Tiffany’s nominations stayed in place. With the power of veto back on the line, Hannah was the head of the class. Although Kyland tried to get himself off the block, Hannah opted to save her other cookout cohort. Tonight, either Sarah Beth or Kyland will be evicted. Plus Britini and Derek X start to piece together what led to their demise. And an epic battle of endurance for power began. Julie greets us and it is Day 58. We pick up after the veto ceremony and Hannah did not pull Kyland down so he could not campaign for Sarah Beth and Xavier is all about loyalty and hopefully she can build trust with X and Alyssa. Tiff is excited and wants to send SB to jury so she can tell DX that it was Tiff, Claire, and Hannah who sent her there. Ky says this is going to be a tough week sitting next to SB, but it needs to be done. SB is hoping she can work on staying and she just hopes she is not the target. Alyssa, X, and Claire are talking and Alyssa mentions if SB is evicted, Claire would be the last white person in the house. They also note there are no white males on jury. Xavier says yeah, that is exactly what is happening but no one outside the alliance needs to know that. X is talking to himself and he says why would Alyssa point that out. And the only way to get Claire off that scent is for Alyssa to go. X says frustration. Azah says it is a beautiful day in the house and she and Claire are making dinner and it is a surf and turf night. Hannah, Derek F, and Tiffany are outside and there is a beetle flying around and DF freaks out and flips the hammock and Hannah hits her head on the wood. While they are tending to Hannah and making sure she is ok, the stove is still on. Tiff is explaining that DF ran from a beetle and DF is sorry and the something is smoking in the oven. Claire opens the oven and smoke flies out and the smoke detector goes off. Azah realizes what is in the oven is on fire and she runs for the fire extinguisher. She sprays inside the oven and there is still smoke and the detector finally goes off. Everyone else is heading inside and they note the smoke and say Hannah is getting a concussion. Xavier says everything is going wrong. There is a fire in here and a medical emergency outside. Hannah has ice on her head and DF wants to help and Hannah tells him it is not his fault at all. Tiff recaps the events because DF is scared of a tiny beetle. Hannah says part of the reason the Cookout has been successful is because the six of them have not been in a room together. We then see Hannah, Tiffany, DF, and Azah talking and Kyland comes in and then they wake Xavier out and make their alliance official. X says even though the Cookout has been official since week one, it is nice to make it finally official. However, only one of them will be winning. X, Ky, and DF are talking about who they might target next and they want to lose a woman and they mention Alyssa and Claire. X says he sees a benefit in bringing Big D and Ky to the final three, but he also sees benefits in bringing Tiff and Hannah because he can beat all of them. Ky says he is keeping his eye on Big D though. Big D says he knows Ky will not take X and vice versa. He says he has a mouth that can debate and he knows he could win that money as the only option left for those two to take. Tiff is talking to Ky about taking Big D. Tiff says Ky is the biggest target and she is the next biggest target. Ky says he thinks they would both lose to X. So they think getting rid of Big D and then X would be the best idea. Ky says his true final two is with Tiff. Ky says he cannot afford to be on the block after this week so he needs to set himself up for the long game. Tiff says Ky would take her to final two and that works, but she would for sure take Hannah with her. Time to check in with the jury! Britini says getting evicted was bittersweet but she still has a role in the game. She gets a vote for a winner. She thinks the next juror will be Alyssa, Sarah Beth, or Kyland. Derek X enters and Britini is surprised. Derek X says he felt like he was playing a decent game and there were things he should have and could have done to save his game. Britini did not want to see him come in and she asks who was HOH and he will show her. Derek X shows the DVD and Sarah winning the HOH comp and how close DX was to winning. DX did not think it was that bad that she won. We then see SB’s nominations and Britini says he was a backdoor. DX explains the turning point was not playing in the high roller comp. We then see Alyssa taking down Big D and then spinning the roulette wheel. DX explains why he did not play in the roulette competition. He wishes he had used his BB bux but he did not think his reason was invalid. Britini sees who wins veto and then the veto ceremony and the eviction. DX was confused why his arguments were not going through but when he seen the goodbye messages and Ky told him he was working with a group of people. DX thinks it was Tiff, X, Azah, and Ky, and then DX is not sure Hannah would be in it and not told him. Britini is not sure Big D is in it. Derek X has figured out Tiffany’s plan for them having a duo and then evicting them. Time for the live vote and eviction! SB does brief shoutouts and she asks the HG to reconsider keeping her for tactical reasons. She thinks they will eventually look back and regret their decision and she wants them to consider what is good and safe for their game. Ky does his shoutouts to his family and friends. He says HG they had a great conversation during one on ones and he hopes they were not too long because he talks a lot. He hopes they keep him but if they keep SB because she is a wonderful woman he understands. Time to vote! Derek F gladly to evote Sarah Beth. Claire casts her tie breaking vote for Sarah Beth. Alyssa votes to evict Sarah Beth. Tiff out of sympathy for SB votes to evict Kyland. Azah votes to evict Sarah Beth. Hannah votes to evict Sarah Beth. Xavier votes to evict Sarah Beth. By a vote of 5-1, Sarah Beth has been evicted from the Big Brother house! She gives hugs to everyone in a line on her way to the door. Julie says SB went from being HOH and then nominated twice and evicted. Why does she think 5 out of the 6 votes were to evict her and Ky. SB says she thought she might have been the bigger threat because Ky might be by himself. Julie says it seemed SB regretted evicted DX and she says she does not regret that so much, but she regrets for appearing too loyal to Ky instead of Tiffany and Claire. Julie asks how hard this week was to sit next to Ky. SB says it was very difficult but he was an easy person to play with and neither she nor him took it personal that they campaigned for themselves. Claire does tell SB that she was the secret HOH and she wanted to break her and Ky up. Hannah says she could not move forward with SB in the game. Azah says she had to get rid of SB to further a mission that is close to her heart. Ky tells SB that he did mean it when he said he would take her as far as he could in the game but he was in an alliance that he could not tell her about. SB says that was great game play on their part and she guesses Azah is in that secret alliance. It is time for the HOH competition! Claire has to throw this competition because she is not eligible to win. This competition is called “The Flying BB-inos”. They will stand on a disc and they will spin. Last HG standing wins. The first three HG to fall will be have-nots for the week. They will be slammed into Bubbles the elephant. They all get on their disc and they are raised up and DF is immediately struggling. The spinning begins. Everyone is encouraging Big D. Bubbles are coming out of the elephants bum. Big D is leaning back. Hannah is holding tight and so is Tiff. Ky seems to be spinning quite a bit. When we return from commercial, Big D has already fallen off the disc and has been eliminated. Julie tells us Zingbot will be back this week and next Thursday will be double eviction night, and then they will do it again the following week. Julie says Big D looks very relaxed and she hopes everyone else is having fun. Alyssa has fallen off right as circus performers begins spraying something at them. The HG are yelling goodnight and doing shoutouts.
  11. Previously, on Big Brother, with Tiffany seizing power, her goal was to take out Sarah Beth and bring the Cookout one step closer to the final six. After taking a punishment in the previous veto competition, Xavier was on the block as a third nominee and was quickly joined by a pawn, and the target. With the high rollers room back open for a final time, the powerful coin of destiny was up for grabs. A plan was formed to convince Tiffany’s ally Claire to try and win it. After Claire won the chance for a game changing coin toss, a flip of fate took power from Tiffany putting it in the hands of the new HOH and she immediately put up the same nominees. Tonight with Claire controlling the house completely from the shadows, how will her anonymous reign shake up the game. Plus the POV is back up for grabs and will it be used to save any of the nominees from the block. All this right now on Big Brother! We pick up after the coin of destiny flip and Tiffany has lost her HOH room and the secret HOH kept her nominations the same. She still has a great chance of getting Sarah Beth out of the house this week. Claire says it is amazing to be the secret HOH and she nominated Ky and SB and that is what Tiffany wants. She knows the target is SB, but honrestly any of them can go to jury and she would happy. Ky says he is ok with the nominations because he knew about the plan for Claire to win HOH. Ky says he prepared for it, but just because you prepare for a bat swing to the face does not make it hurt any less. Xavier says he took the punishment to be a third nominee this week and even though he knows the plan, he would prefer not to sit on the block come eviction night. SB says it sucks to sit next to Ky and does not want Ky to go home, but she does not want it to be her. Tiffany is going to the HOH room to clear it out and Hannah and Claire are with her. She wants to insinuate that she played the Coin of Destiny and that way no one can get in Claire’s ear. Claire says she will not say anything. Claire is thrilled that Tiff wants to get the blood on her hands, but she also wants credit for getting the HOH because she does not want it seen just as Tiff’s move. SB is talking to Ky and she does not understand why they are being targeted and she says they are not likable. Ky is trying to comfort SB. SB says someone had a secret opportunity to nominate people and they were targeted. Ky says it is hard to lie to SB. SB says she and Ky got nominated twice this week and if that is not a house target, then she does not know what is. She says their best chance to survive is for one of them to win the veto. It is time to pick players for the veto competition! Xavier will compete with the two other nominees and three random draws. Xavier draws Alyssa. Sarah Beth draws Claire. Kyland draws Hannah. Claire and Tiffany are talking about who could potentially win veto. Claire says she is not sure if she wants to share she is the secret HOH and Tiff says she did not want SB badgering her. Claire has to decide if going after SB is what she wants to do. Claire prefers Xavier to be the one to go home, but she knows Tiffany wants SB out. But she needs to make a decision for her game and maybe she needs to make a move for her own game. Ben Platt is sharing a sneak peek of his movie Dear Evan Hansen. The winner of the veto competition will also win a chance to see Dear Evan Hansen. They will compete one at a time. Claire is out first and they have to arrange photos in chronological order and when they think they are correct they hit the button to lock in their time. The player who places their photos in the correct order in the fastest time will win POV. Claire hits her button and she says it is crucial to win the veto comp. Claire puts up all the photos and then starts looking for clues to rearrange them in order. She sees Christian with a cast with signatures and then one that is blank and that has to go first. She sees Brent with a black eye and then him getting hit with a dodge ball and she realizes that is what caused the black eye. She rings in to check things and she is wrong so she is rearranging things. She makes a few adjustments and rings in again and she is wrong. Claire tries again and see an Derek X with an apple and in one photo the apple has a bite taken out of it. She makes another adjustment and she rings in and she is correct and says of course it would be DX that messed her up. Ky is up next and he says he is going for speed and he puts up all the photos and rings in and he is wrong. He starts making adjustments. He hits his button again and is wrong and has to move things around again. He knows he was moving fast, but he did ring in a lot. Alyssa is up next and she wants to win to take Xavier off the block and keep herself safe. She is excited to see Christian but she is upset he did not have her sign his cast. She is getting frustrated because she does not know what to look at. Xavier is up next and he says there is strong incentive to win this veto to stay safe. He puts the photos all up and then he starts to assess what to change around. Xavier rings in and seven wrong and has to try again. He says his brain is just not clicking. Hannah is up next. She says they are in the second half of the game and she needs to start winning things and she would love to see an advance screening of Dear Evan Hansen. She starts focusing on elements that are in more than one photo. SB is up next and she says it is impossible to know who the target is so she wants to win veto so she knows she is safe. She does not want to put all the pictures out because she might get confused by the storyline. She rings in and she is correct. Time for results! Kyland finished with a time of 5:25. Claire finished with a time of 6:27. Alyssa finished with a time of 8:14. Kyland is in the lead. Hannah finished with a time of 4:59. Xavier finished with a time of 8:29. Sarah Beth finished with a time of 5:22. Hannah has won the POV! Hannah has also won the advance screening of Dear Evan Hansen. Ky is bummed he did not win but he is glad Hannah did. Claire is frustrated she did not win, but let us get SB out and regroup. SB is emotional and she says she tried her best and she was hoping it would be enough. She tells Ky it sucks to be so close. Ky says Hannah won veto and he is happy for her but he feels beyond confident. He just does not want to be on the block on eviction night. SB does not think she can convince Hannah to take her off the block, but maybe she can convince her to take Ky off the block and that would maybe give them a chance to both stay in the game. Hannah calls everyone to the living room and she gets to select three people to go to the movie with her. She has chosen SB, Ky, and Xavier. Derek F says Hannah did him dirty because he wanted to watch this movie. Hannah heads to the HOH room for the movie and she is so excited. They have movie candy, popcorn, and drinks. They settle in to watch the movie and they are excited to be watching a movie. Xavier says this movie has a lot of messages and it is great. Hannah loved and adored the movie and every single song was a 10. She says that was the coolest prize ever. All four are emotional over the movie. Ky is talking to Claire and he is questioning of Claire thinks the veto would be used on him and Claire thinks Ky may believe she is the secret HOH. Claire says it is not a good look for him to want to save SB. Claire is talking to Tiff and she is telling her about Ky and Tiff says he asked her to put him up next to SB and he wants to come down? She says everyone knew the plan and he needs to be quiet about being on the block. She says he has the six and he wants the veto used? Ky is pitching to Hannah about using the veto on him. Hannah says the plan has always been to save Xavier and she is confused why he wants her to use veto on him. Ky says Hannah could do what she wants for her game and he wants to be able to give SB a sympathy vote. Hannah says she gets the feeling that Ky is working with the Cookout but playing his own individual game and he may want to try and flip the vote to save SB. She says it does not make sense to want to get veto used to just to give someone a sympathy vote. It is time for the veto meeting! Hannah has decided to use the POV on Xavier. Hannah says there will be no replacement nominee since he was there as a punishment. Hannah says in no universe would she ever have used veto on him and it is sketchy he asked. Ky has conflicting emotions because he loves and cares for her, but this is the move that has to be made. SB says she did not come here to hang out with her best friend and she came to win a game so she is going to do what she needs to do to make sure she stays. Tiff says trying to get veto used on Ky was a selfish move and she will keep her eye on him.
  12. Terry greets us and then the judges and we get ready to kick off the first semi-final competition. Our first act of the night is Peter Rosalita and he is a singer. He takes the stage and has chosen the song Without You by Harry Nilsson. Heidi says his voice is as powerful as he is adorable. Sofia says he had command of the stage and that was spectacular.

Aidan Bryant is the next act to take the stage and he is an aerialist. Sofia says he gets better and better. Sofia is so amazed by what he does and that was so smooth. Simon says this was a gold medal performance. Howie says Aidan was so impressive. He was a little critical last time and this was so smooth and he took previous criticism and turned it into a wow moment. Heidi says he continues to impress everyone and she thought that was hands down his best performance. The next act is Tori Vagasy and she is a singer. She takes the stage and sings Can You Feel the Love Tonight by Elton John from The Lion King. Simon says she may have struggled following Aidan. He says it might have been too safe for the semi-final. Howie agrees with Simon about Tori. He says she is an amazing singer and voice, but he thinks this show needs more. Heidi says any Broadway stage would be lucky to have her, and she as flawless. Sofia says she definitely belongs on Broadway and she stepped it up. World Taekwondo Demonstration Team is up for their performance and they perform martial arts. Howie says they are his favorite act so far tonight and this was the best act of the night and he could watch that for two hours straight. Heidi says she loved World Taekwondo Demo Team and she thinks people will want to learn what they do. Sofia says their performance was more dramatic and spectacular and amazing. Simon says they came back and tonight was the best performance they have given. Madilyn Bailey is up next and she is a singer. She sings an original called Red Ribbon that is honor of her grandmother and how to move on after a death. Howie says she is very lucky and he did not think that was special. Heidi says this was a hard song and she nailed it. Heidi also says Madilyn won her over. Simon says Howie is an *ss and he is talking out of and Madilyn did a great job and that was a beautiful song and he is so proud of her. Sofia agrees with Simon. Dustin Tavella is ready to take the stage, and he is a magician. He gets an ovation from everyone in the audience and the judges. Sofia says he is nervous each time and she thinks he performed better than ever before. Simon says Dustin is a born storyteller and that is what makes him unique and he is so special. Howie says he loves him and he is amazing and magical and he loves orange yogurt and Dustin is the orange yogurt of entertainers. Korean Soul is up next and they are singers and they take the stage to sing You Say by Lauren Daigle. Simon says the song choice was a million times better than last time, but some of the song sounded out of tune. Sofia says Korean Soul sounded amazing and better than the last time. Howie says he thinks they are great, but he liked last time better. Heidi says she liked it better this time because they each had a moment to shine. Gina Brillon is a comedian and she is next to take the stage. Howie says this is the first season four comics made it into the semi-finals and he is so happy and proud of her. Heidi says with or without spanx, she is fabulous and she deserves a spot at the finale. Sofia says she is funny and relatable and she is her cup of tea. Simon says she loved the fact that she acknowledged the competition and he was critical last time and he will be the first to admit, he was talking out of his *ss. Jimmie Herrod is our final act of the night and he is a singer and he has chosen to sing Glitter In The Air by P!nk. Sofia says he is unbelievable and this is how a semi-final performance should be. Simon says that was a master class from Jimmie and he is an amazing singer. He is incredible. Heidi says she is waiting for his album to drop. Howie says he is by far the best singer in this competition and what he does is perfection and he could listen to him day or night.
  13. Previously, on Big Brother, the powerful Cookout alliance was operating completely undetected, and each had an oblivious partner outside the group to get them further in the game. At the veto competition, Xavier won power and punishments. After X pulled himself from the block, HOH Sarah Beth backdoored Baby D. Before the live vote, Derek X put SB on blast, but it was not enough to prevent a Derek Exit. With the power back up for grabs, Tiffany got her first win of the summer and everyone got a BB Bux bonus. With only nine remaining for the win, who will Tiffany target for eviction? But with the Coin of Destiny end the former queen’s reign early? Find out right now on Big Brother! We pick up on Day 51 after the HOH competition and Tiffany says she feels amazing! She finally won something in this house. Ultimately, it was not worth risking the Cookout to save Derek X even though she really wanted to. Tiffany, Azah, and Claire are celebrating in the SR and Hannah joins in. Claire says yes! She is so proud of Tiff and she is so excited. She has been on the block for two weeks and now her tightest ally in the game is HOH. She can take a deep breath. Kyland is emotional and Derek F is comforting him and Azah is as well. DF says Derek X will understand once he sees everything. Ky tells us that DX was a genuine guy and he does not regret sending him home because he was a threat, but he is still sad. SB and Xavier are talking and she asks if he heard the speeches and X says he did not say anything. She is emotional and she cannot lie and she says his speech was hurtful, but she has to stick to her guns and remember what she came here for. SB has to pretend she is happy with Tiff winning. She never thought of Tiff as an option when she was HOH and hopefully that means something. X says he will already be a nominee. SB was hoping Alyssa, X, or Ky would win because they created an alliance called The Monarchy. Alyssa joins X and SB and she thinks either Ky and SB or herself and X. X is already on the block. X says with Tiff being in power, he does not like his odds this week. Just joking! He says anyone who is not a member of the Cookout has to go. Alyssa says the Coin of Destiny is a huge power because you can overthrow the HOH. Tiff says she is going to need Ky’s help. She says he should expect to go up next to SB and sending her home has been on her mind because she has no loyalty to anyone. Ky does not want to go on the block and he suggests Alyssa and SB and Tiff says what if Alyssa pulls herself off? Ky says he is at a point in the game where he can no longer protect SB. Hannah is talking Tiffany and Tiff says she did this for DX and Hannah says she feels so guilty. Tiff says she is not alone because X, Ky, and herself are going to go through it. She says they chose themselves before anyone else. Tiff says people will be hurt but he was a great person and he will still be Hannah’s friend. She hopes he will forgive her. She says she feels awful and guilty for sending him home. She says if it was not for the Cookout, DX would be in the game because he had her back. Derek F is in to talk to Tiff and they are talking about the Coin of Destiny. Tiff thinks DF and a few other people who can get that opportunity. She is hoping if someone wins that she is close to, then her nominations will not change. Tiff says she and DF may fight like siblings, but she wants him to play and potentially win. DF does not trust Tiff because they have been going at it all season and if it was not for the Cookout, then he would make sure she was gone. Tiff is talking to SB and she asks about her ability to play for the Coin of Destiny and she can only play if America gave her 100 BB Bux and she had a 100 BB Bux in her envelope, but Tiff does not need to know that. Tiff tells SB she does not understand why she went after DX and she put her in a tight spot because it was DX and Claire and that indirectly affected her game. Tiff says she does not have anyone fighting for her. Tiff says she will run scenarios in her head. Who wants to see Tiffany’s HOH room? The HG all head in and check out Tiff’s pictures. Tiff reads her letter and her family is proud of her and they love her so much and she is missed. Her letter was from Mama Pat, her grandmother. Tiff is talking to SB again and SB has been thinking about her conversation. SB says Tiff made it clear she might target SB and Ky and SB throws out Alyssa’s name and mentions Alyssa noticed Tiff was disappointed when Baby D did not win the previous HOH. Tiff says SB is very convincing and she ran Alyssa over with a bus. Alyssa is in the ICU right now, that is how hard SB ran over Alyssa with the bus. Tiff says with the Coin of Destiny, she may need to look at other options. It is time for the nomination ceremony! X is an automatic nominee from the punishment he took in the last veto competition. Tiff’s first nominee is…Kyland. The second nominee is…Sarah Beth. Tiff nominated Ky and SB because they make up a very powerful duo and this week she needs to make an optimal move to excel her own personal game and she wishes them both luck. Tiff says SB is her target and Alyssa is safe until next time. But nothing is set especially with the coin of destiny. Ky is not surprised and he knows it made the most sense for him to be next to SB. He watched Azah lose Britini and Hannah lose DX, but this is painful. SB says she cannot sit here and act butthurt, but unlike last time she has another chance to maybe come off the block, and maybe Ky could come off because of the Coin of Destiny. Hope is not completely lost. Tiff is talking to SB and tells her that Ky is a threat to her and SB made the most sense to put next to Ky so she would not fight to take Ky down. SB says she is glad that Tiff is candid and she appreciates that. She would rather it be Ky than her, but she is in danger. The High Roller’s room is open for the last time. They will play for a chance to flip a coin and win HOH and take over her powers for the week and the new HOH will be anonymous. Xavier cannot be removed from the block. Tiff will be safe. Azah is first in to the High Roller’s room. She received $50 from America and she had $50 in her envelope and her total is $200. She cannot play. X received $75 and $50 in his envelope and his total is $125. Alyssa received $75 and she has $100 in her envelope so her total is $175. We see Hannah and Tiff talking to Claire about Claire playing for the Coin of Destiny and that is good so Claire cannot play next week. Hannah got $100 from America and $50 in her envelope. She has $300 and she declines to play. Ky got $50 and $100 in his envelope for a total of $200. Tiff got $100 and $50 and her total is $225. SB says there is a chance here. She received $50 from America and $100 in her envelope for a total of $200. Tiff tells Derek F she is ok if he does not want to play so he can still play in the next HOH. Derek F received $75 from America and $100 in his envelope plus the $100 he won in the veto competition and he has a total of $425 and he is going to play. He does not need to play so he can show he tried to win. On go, they will throw gold coins into slots and whoever has the most after two minutes will win. Derek F is going to take his time because he is definitely throwing this competition. He gets a score of one and he thinks that is the perfect throwing score. Claire received $100 from America and $50 for a total of $250 and she is going to play. Claire is going fast and furious and she only has one in the slot and she is concerned she might not get anymore. Claire finally hits two more but she is concerned three is not a great score but she really does not want anyone messing up Tiff’s HOH. Tiff calls everyone to the living room. The game has been won with a score of 3 and now we will flip the coin. Tiff places the coin on the flipper and the winner chose heads for the coin flip. Tiff flips the coin and the coin has landed on heads and Tiff has been dethroned. Alyssa says they now have no idea who has all the power and she knows she and X did not have enough to play. Tiff is eligible to vote and compete in the next HOH. Ky and SB are off the block for now. The secret HOH’s first nominee is…Ky. The second nominee is…SB. The secret HOH’s nominees are locked and the High Roller Room is officially closed. SB thinks her or Ky will be going home this week. She does not see a way out of this because an anonymous HOH is still targeting them. Tiff says whoever dethroned her did not change her noms so the only thing that can ruin things is if SB wins veto. Claire says yes, yes, yes! She says this is not how her first HOH win would go, but she will take it. She finally has some agency here. She kept noms the same because she respected Tiff’s HOH. The power is in her hands.
  14. Previously, on Big Brother, Sarah beasted her way to power so looking to protect his secret cookout alliance her bestie Kyland pushed her to target Derek X and SB put up two pawns with her sights set on a backdoor. The high rollers room re-opened and DX turned down a chance to compete for safety, but Alyssa seized the moment and won chopping block roulette. With the swimwear designer saving Derek F, a spin on the roulette wheel put another member of the cookout on the hot seat After DX had a chat with SB about her plans, he finally realized he was in trouble and his worst nightmare came true when he was not picked to play veto. At the veto competition, X claimed the power and three punishments. After X saved himself at the veto meeting, SB stuck to her backdoor plan. Tonight, with the Cookout divided on who should be the target, will it be Baby D or Claire sent to jury? And who will capture the next HOH? Find out right now on Big Brother! Julie greets us and it is Day 51 and we pick up after the veto meeting and X says DX does not realize he was the biggest target after Christian left. Claire says thinks the house wants DX out. SB says DX is on the block and she can breathe a sigh of relief and he can pack his bags. Tiff says Claire is her girl, but DX is a comp beast and he might be able to get her further in the game. DX is frustrated because he barely lost to SB in the HOH comp and now he is on the block with Claire and he needs to fight to stay this week. Tiff is talking to Azah and Hannah and they are discussing maybe flipping the votes. Hannah talks to X and she tells him she thinks Azah and Tiff want Baby D to stay and he says he is being handed to them on a platter. X says why would they keep the strongest competitor outside of the Cookout around. Azah is telling X that DX’s target would be SB. X says they are getting too late in the game to keep a threat around. X says Azah is back on board, but he does not think Tiff will be as easy to convince. Ky talks to Tiff and Tiff says she is not going to let Ky guilt trip her about DX. X wants to talk to Tiff without Ky. X asks Tiff is Ky getting on her nerves and she says a little. Tiff says they never thought SB would be the one to take DX out so he is not untouchable. X says Tiff seems on board to get DX out and Tiff says the conversation is over, but the game is still on. Tiff is talking to Azah and they are discussing Ky might be the first of the six to go. They talk about the guys have too much on their resume and they want to take credit for everything. Tiff says it is time to start planning on how the ladies can take the wheel. SB gathers everyone in the living room. X will be locked in the have-not room for the next 24 hours and he is not allowed to come out until he is called to vote for eviction. He is told to grab food and water and head upstairs. He says goodbye to everyone. X has a limited amount of food, a toilet that is a bucket in a tent, and water. He says please let the Cookout keep it together for one vote. Tiff is telling DX that he is going to have to argue his case because she needs him here. Tiff says Azah could give DX a pity vote. DX says he needs four votes and right now he is counting on Tiffany, Hannah, and Kyland and he thinks he might be able to get Azah’s vote. DX says this is the most optimistic he has felt all week. DX is pitching to Azah and he says he knows if he stays in the game he will not be there long, but he wants to try and level the playing field before he leaves. Azah says she will think long and hard about it and it is a convincing argument. DX gets emotional and Azah comforts him. Azah says Baby D willing to stay and be a shield could be a game changer. She says he could be an ally she could value and love. Azah says she needs to figure out if this is the best game play this week. Azah says she was so certain until 30 minutes ago because he brought up good points. It is time for the live eviction! Claire does her shoutouts. She says it has been such a pleasure and this is an individual game and if she can be an asset to them then please vote to keep her here. She is not a veto queen or king, but she would like to stay. Derek X does his shoutouts. He says in BB there are inflection points that can change the game. He says he made a move that was not great for his personal game, but it was better for the house. He sees that point again and he can take out someone else for balance. It is time for the live vote! Alyssa votes to evict Derek X. Hannah votes to evict Claire. Ky sadly votes to evict Claire. Derek F sadly to evote Derek X. Tiff with a very heavy heart votes to evict Derek X. Azah sadly votes to evict Baby D. Xavier is released from solitary confinement and heads directly to the diary room to vote. Xavier votes to evict the swagadelic Derek X. By a vote of 5-2, Derek X has been evicted from the Big Brother house. He hugs everyone and tells SB no hard feelings. Julie says DX lost a week ago he lost to SB and then he did not play chopping block roulette and then did not get picked for veto. How does he feel? DX says he was thinking about long term game without realizing his short term game was at risk. Julie asks what he has to say to America and he loves America and he thanks people for voting for him and he apologizes for letting people down. Julie asks about Hannah and he says she is amazing, but he was focused on the game and not a showmance. Julie asks if dating outside the house could happen and he says expect the unexpected. When we come back the HOH competition will begin! The HG are sitting around and the memory wall says BB NFT’s will be dropping soon. They see gifs of themselves such as Alyssa getting slimed and Ky kissing DF. They see Brent from the bowling comp and Christian doing backflips. The HG know these will be important for the HOH comp. They are laughing and watching the gifs. Tiff loves seeing the NFT’s, OTEV, the facemasks, but this is not all fun and games. She needs to memorize these videos in order to win the HOH comp. It is time for the HOH comp! There will be 7 true or false questions. If they are correct they stay in the game and if they are wrong they will be eliminated. Then they each have a chance to get BB bux and will grab an envelope to open in the high roller room. True or false: In the masks NFT, Christian was wearing the veto medallion. X, Azah, and Claire answer false and everyone else says true. The correct answer is true and X, Azah, and Claire are eliminated. True or False: In the slippy slidey NFT, Britini was seen searching through the orange jelly. Hannah, Tiff, and Alyssa answer False and the others answer true. Hannah changes and then changes back. The correct answer is False and Ky and DF are eliminated. Tiff, Alyssa, and Hannah remain. True or False: In the flippin’ NFT, an inflatable pink flamingo was visible. Alyssa seems unsure but all three answer true and they are all correct. True or False: the spin NFT was shown in sequence before the moonwalk NFT. Tiff answers true and Hannah and Alyssa answer false. The correct answer true and Tiff wins HOH! The HG need to grab their envelopes with BB bux on their way back into the house. The HG are hugging and Tiff wants a group hug. Tiff is looking forward to pics and a letter. Claire is grateful to be there. There will be no have-nots this week.
  15. Previously, on Big Brother, the powerful Cookout alliance was secretly running the game, but when Sarah Beth won power the Cookout scrambled to keep their alliance safe. So Sarah Beth’s ally Kyland steered her towards a target outside the six and a backdoor plan was put into motion and once again, two pawns found themselves on the block. The high rollers room was back open and unaware he was in danger Derek X chose not to play turning down a chance at safety leaving Alyssa as the only one to spend her BB bux. Alyssa’s win gave her safety and the right to remove a nominee. Then a fateful spin of the roulette wheel chose the replacement and Alyssa was left in tears as her closest ally hit the block. But Sarah Beth had bigger plans. Tonight, who will win the POV? And will it be used to save Claire or Xavier? And if it does, will it mean Derek X will be backdoored? We pick up on Day 45 after the chopping block roulette meeting. Alyssa feels really bad. She says Xavier has looked out for her and she put him on the block. If he goes home, then she will feel so bad. X says he was working so hard not to get nominated, but then a roll of a ball gets him nominated, and his closest ally outside of the Cookout. He says it is almost funny how bad his luck was. Claire says she is still on the block but she is against X and he is the ultimate physical specimen. SB says this is perfect because that power is out and she does not have to worry about it and she can still backdoor Derek X. Derek X says he feels good with SB and he got to save his money. And now that the wheel has been spun, he is glad it was X and not himself. Alyssa is crying and X says it is not her fault and she says it is her fault and X says it is alright. Claire is talking to SB and SB tells us Claire is not her target, but she is close with Derek X and she cannot tell her that. Claire asks what SB wants done with veto and SB says it would put her in a tricky spot. Claire believes SB when she says she is not the target. Claire does not think SB would want X out. Claire says Ky and SB are joined at the hip so she does not think it is him. Which leaves Derek X as a big target and a backdoor option. Claire goes to talk to Derek X and tells him about her convo with SB. Claire is telling Derek X that she thinks they are the targets. Derek X is a little concerned and he wants to talk to SB and see if he is potentially the target. Claire and Derek X are concerned about X winning the veto and Tiffany joins them and they fill her in. Tiff says Derek X needs to win the veto and he says he needs to get picked. Tiff says it is upsetting that DX is a backdoor option because she is not ready to let him go, but she knows the Cookout will not save him. Alyssa is talking to SB and she is telling her she wishes she had never played. She wants to see what SB is thinking with he upcoming veto competition. SB says she never intended for Claire to go home and she clues her in on Derek X as a backdoor option. Alyssa says she is so excited because she wants to target DX because he backdoored Christian. She wants to get picked to play even more than she did before so she can take a role in the backdoor plan. SB says if DX does not get picked to play, he is definitely going home. Derek X is going to talk to SB and try and find out who her target is. DX asks if SB would want the veto used and she says she is hoping she wins because she does not know what she wants to do and she wants options. Derek X says he should have played the stupid wheel because now his game is on the line. He needs to summon the veto king energy and pray his name gets drawn for the veto. Derek X is talking to Hannah and he is feeling her in on his conversation with SB. Hannah says if X or Claire win then he will go up. She says he needs to win and he says completely. Hannah feels guilty for keeping DX from playing and she does want to protect him. It is time to pick players for the veto competition! SB draws…Azah. Claire draws… Derek F. Xavier draws…Alyssa. Derek X says his name did not get drawn and it is a week straight from hell. He says he does not know what karma he did but it is hitting him now. Derek X is talking to Claire and he says how did his name not get picked? Claire says these were the worst picks she could have gotten and her biggest fear is Xavier could come off and Derek X will go up. She does not want to sit next to him. She needs to win this veto. For the veto competition they have to set up dominoes to complete a chain reaction. They can go for the veto but they have to knock down three red punishment dominoes. But if they give up veto they can include three green dominoes for a prize. Alyssa is up first and she chooses BB Bankrupt, which means she would lose her BB bux, solitary confinement, and solo have-not. She feels like she did pretty good and she hopes her time is fast enough. Derek F is going to go for the prizes because he is safe anyway and does not need veto. He starts knocking his dominoes down but they get stuck and he has to reset everything. He gets it on his second attempt. Azah wants to win the POV so she can keep herself safe and take Xavier off the block. She says the difficult part is the log at the end. Azah has to reset once also and she begins again and she completes the task. SB says she sees the prize blocks and it is tempting to win another 10k, but she did not have complete control over HOH so she wants to go for the veto. She goes for the same punishments Alyssa did. She completes the task on the first try. Xavier is up and he is going to go for the veto. X says he has thrown previous comps but he has to go for this one. The fastest path will be strategy shutdown, bb bankrupt, and solitary confinement. Claire is up and she thinks SB is trying to backdoor Derek X and that is the worst case scenario so she needs to win this veto so she can take herself off. She does not want to be a third nominee so she goes with veto disadvantage and hope it does not impact her time. One person went for prizes instead of the veto. With a winning time of 16:29 and they walked away with 100 BB Bux and $7500 cash. Everyone knows it was Big D. Now it is time to find out who won the POV. X says he feels good but he is hoping his time was fast enough. With a time of 3:05, X has won the POV! The punishments he got are BB Bankruptcy, Third Nominee, and Strategy Shutdown. X says he will take all the punishments. Claire is upset because she really wanted to win. She does not want to be sitting next to Derek X on Thursday and now the odds of that are pretty high. SB is happy and X can take himself down and she put Derek X up and send him home this week. Claire is in the shower crying and DX says she is ok. She says she should have gone for the third nominee and DX says it is fine. She feels like she let him down. Tiff comes in and asks if Claire is ok and she wants to talk to her for a second. DX does love Claire and it hurts him because he could have played the wheel and kept himself safe and maybe saved Claire but he cannot dwell on the past. Tiff tells Claire not to beat herself up and keep it together. Tiff says this is a tough situation because Claire and DX are her closest allies outside of the Cookout. She needs to try and figure out a way to keep him off the block. CBS has partnered with the Red Cross and the HG will donate time and assemble emergency kits to be used in emergencies. Tiff is excited to be doing this because it is important. Ky says there are food rations and flashlights and they are important things to have in an emergency. He says if you are failing to prepare, then you are preparing to fail. Azah says this was a great break from the strategy of the game. Derek X says he needs to figure something out because if he does not, then SB will backdoor him. Tiff pitches DX suggesting Hannah go up and then they get rid of Claire. Tiff says Claire is her girl, but DX is more valuable to her game. Tiff says the Cookout would never vote Hannah out and if she has to lose Claire to keep DX that is ok with her. SB was targeting Hannah at one point so this might be an opportunity to take that shot. DX says it is a hail mary but he does not have any other options. DX goes to make his pitch to SB and he is offering a form of guaranteed safety. He says she does not have to be the one to take the shot at him. DX offers two weeks of safety. He says putting Hannah on the block would be a favor to him. SB asks if he thinks Hannah would go home over Claire if she hit the block and DX says yeah. But really she would not but he is going to tell SB what she needs to hear. DX says with Hannah gone he would needs SB as an ally and he would not target her. SB does think Hannah is a dark horse and she would not be surprised if she was throwing comps and she is smarter. SB wants to make the best decision for her game and getting rid of Hannah it could weaken DX’s game. It is time for the veto ceremony! X has decided…to use the POV on himself. SB has to name a replacement nominee and she nominates…Derek X. She thinks if she did not take this shot it would show reckless overconfidence on her part. SB says DX is a huge obstacle for her to get to F2 and he is too dangerous. She is winning this game, not him. Claire says this just sucks. If she were next to someone she did not like, then she would be scrapping, but his is the worst case scenario. Hannah says she made a commitment to the Cookout on day 3, but DX is good for her game and she does not want to see him leave. DX is emotional and he apologizes to America for letting them down because he did not spin that roulette wheel. DX says he is going to fight like hell to stay this week and if he is successful, then all hell is going to break loose. Find out tomorrow who will be evicted live!

  17. Previously, on Big Brother, the six person alliance was secretly dominating the game, and they all had unsuspecting partners outside the group. Kyland had Sarah Beth, Hannah had Derek X, Tiffany had Claire, Xavier had Alyssa, and Big D and Azah had Britini. With Britini’s fate seemingly sealed, the Cookout started looking towards their next targets, and Derek X’s days seemed numbered. After the HG called it a wrap on the rapper, the HOH was back on the line and Derek X came within one second of sezing glory. But he wasn’t fast enough to stop SB from ascending to power. Tonight, who will be nominated? And the High Roller’s Suite is back open! We pick up on Day 44 after the HOH competition and Sarah Beth and she is the first female HOH and she is so excited and she thinks it will completely change how her going. She wants to win so bad. Derek F says it feels great to still be here and the got a kiss from Kyland, but then his parade ended when Sarah Beth won the HOH. He says Kyland is on the inside, but it is time for someone else in the house to be a pawn. Hannah says SB is the last person she wanted to win because they do not trust each other. She says this sets the Cookouts game further back. SB and Kyland celebrate in the SR. Kyland says his top priority is keeping the Cookout safe, but he cannot reveal that. Kyland says he knows if SB mentions one of the six as a potential target, then he has to put a stop to it. SB asks what she should do and he throws out Derek X and Claire, but he says it is her HOH and he will support her. Azah is emotional and she hated seeing Britini’s picture turn to black and white. If she was not in the Cookout, she would have wanted Britini in the final two with her. Azah and Tiffany are talking about Kyland not throwing the previous HOH to them. Tiffany says of all the people who could have won HOH, SB was the last person she wanted to win. She wanted to be HOH and put SB on the block and now she is probably going on the block. Xavier and Derek F are talking and Big D is nervous. Kyland comes in and tells them to trust him. X tells Big D not to blow a gasket until they see what happens. Xavier feels like he has a good relationship with SB, but he is not feeling confidence the Cookout is safe. Derek X is talking to Alyssa and he says things could have been so different. Alyssa asks how he is feeling and he says ok. Alyssa says SB’s head is probably where Ky’s head is. Derek X is nervous because he put SB up during his HOH. Derek is nervous who she would target. Alyssa says you can never feel safe. She says the Roulette Wheel can really help this week. Tiff and Big D are talking and Tiff says they never talk game. Big D says they have been butting heads and he wants to make sure they are good so they can look out for the Cookout. Alyssa comes in and Tiff and Big D head to the SR. Big D says he and Tiff are cut from the same cloth and she says no they are not. Big D tells her that Brit did not feel comfortable talking to her alone and she says he rolled up on her and intimidated her. Tiff says they are not on the same page and he has not apologized. Tiff says the Cookout with Big D is all good, but that chapter of her book will be closed. She does not owe him anything if he does not have respect for her in the house. She says it was disrespectful and he apologizes and she says do not apologize if you do not mean it. SB is talking to Kyland and she tells him she is happy and he says she has to be. SB is thinking in her gut whether she trusts DX more or Alyssa more. She feels good with Claire and Tiffany. She says she used to be on the Kings team with Alyssa and Xavier. SB says she always felt on the bottom of the totem pole of the Kings alliance and sitting next to Christian did not help their relationship at all. Ky says X is one of his strongest allies and he is going to do what he can to ensure X is safe. SB wants to nominate someone who may use the power. She says she will be very vulnerable next week and she has to get one power used because two next week will be risky. She says she finally has power! SB is talking to Alyssa and they are talking about the High Rollers Suite. Alyssa says she would play for the power this week. Alyssa says other than Xavier she has no one she can trust so she wants to play in the twist competition his week. SB is then talking to Claire and Clarie says she has no money and she cannot play for the power. DX asks if she is going to make him spend the money and she says she does want the power used this week. SB asks Big D about the power and he says he wants the power used because he does not want it floating around another week. Big D says he is not telling anyone he still has BB Bux left. Derek X and Claire are talking about who people might be working with and they think Xavier would be a huge target. DX says you cannot help but be paranoid in this house. The toss out the idea that Tiff, Big D, X, Ky, Azah, and Hannah are working together. Big D and Azah are talking and they are concerned over what SB might do for nominations. Azah says she has absolutely no idea where SB’s head is at and now she has power and everyone is scared. SB and Ky are talking in the HOH room and she thinks everyone in the house would put one or both of them up. SB says Baby D, Alyssa, and X are the ones who scare her, but she is not sure who should go. Ky wants to convince SB to take out DX, but not pressure her. SB says she wants to get rid of someone who is a threat to her and Ky says he does not think X is because they were in the Kings. SB is discussing if DX were to win and she does not like that. She wants to get a target out and use the power for the week. SB says she is considering putting up two pawns because she cannot really decide on a target until she sees the power get used. She wants to leave the option open for a backdoor. It is time for nominations! SB’s first nominee is…Big D. Her second nominee is…Claire. She says this week was complicated because of the Chopping Block Roulette in play. It is not personal. SB says neither of them will be her real target. SB is looking at Derek X because he is smarter and more athletic. Claire says with the veto and the roulette game in play she could still come off the block. Ky says there is no way for two members of the six to be on the block on Thursday. Big D is not going to let SB dictate what he is going to do in this game and he is not going to let anyone force his hands. Claire is talking to Tiff and she is not stressed about it. Tiff says she is not ready to let Claire go but she does not have any BB Bux. Hannah and Derek X are talking and Hannah feels like DX could be SB’s target. Hannah is not ready to let him go, but her primary loyalty is to the Cookout. She wants to play to stay safe and try and keep another Cookout member off the block. DX says he could play this week but if he does, then he might not have enough money next week which is more powerful. He says if he gets backdoored, then he might not even make it to next week! The high roller’s room is now open! The winner of Chopping Block Roulette will remove one nominee and spin a wheel to see who the replacement will be. Claire is in first and she has $100 and she feels better about herself but it is not enough to play. Azah has received $50 and she now has $100 and she cannot play either. Hannah has received $75 and she now has $150 and she is not going to use $125 to play. Xavier has received $75 and he has $150 and he is not going to play this week and save it for next week. SB has been given $50 and that is all she has and she cannot play. Tiff gets $50 and she now has $75 and cannot play. Alyssa has received $75 and she has $125 and she wants to play. On go, she will use her body to move a ball around a roulette table as many times as she can in two minutes. The HG with the highest score will win and they will be safe and remove one nominee. Alyssa begins the competition and she says the table is flimsier than she thought and she has to stay as close to the middle as a possible. She scores 19 in two minutes. Ky received $50 and that is all he has and he cannot play. Big D has won $100 and his total is $150 and he is not going to play and save it for next week. DX has received $100 and he has a total of $200. DX has no idea if he wants to play or not. DX has decided not to play so he can play next week and maybe make a huge move. The HG are in the living room and SB says the game was played and there was a winner. With a high score of 19, Alyssa is the winner and she is safe for the week! Alyssa hopes the spin will land on a target she has her eye on. She wants to take Big D down because he is seen as the ultimate pawn. She does not want to land on Xavier and see him on the block because of her. Alyssa has decided to take Big D off the block and she loves Alyssa for that. It is not time to find out who will be replacing Big D on the block. All eligible HG has an equal number of spots on the wheel. Alyssa gives the wheel a spin and everyone says this is crazy and the ball lands on Xavier and Alyssa is very upset. Xavier is the replacement nominee on the chopping block. Claire and Xavier are now nominated for eviction. Alyssa says she was at such a high point but now she is at a complete low. She says X is sitting there because of her. Claire says this is unexpected but now she is next to a big threat, but she needs to win veto. Xavier says it never feels good to be on the block. He is going to go for the veto and everyone is going to have go through him. SB says if one does come down then she has a backdoor plan for Derek X.
  18. Previously, on Big Brother, the Cookout alliance was well hidden and each of them had a partner outside of the group. With Kyland winning power, he only had three possible targets. Brit tried to strike a deal with Ky to be safe, and Big D offered to be a pawn to protect her as well, sending him to the block net to Claire. Tiffany did not want her close ally to go, so she convinced Kyland to change targets. A new twist called the high rollers room allowed HG to gamble for power and Kyland, Big D, Sarah Beth, and Claire all got to place bets on the veto players to win a second veto. With veto on the line, both Alyssa and Kyland scored big. Derek F pitched to backdoor Derek X, but Kyland had his sights set on Britini and when Brit found out she went on the offensive. Tonight, will Kyland go through with his plan to put the blackbelt on the block? And with two vetoes in play, it is anyone’s guess who will be sent to jury. Plus, HOH is on the line! Julie greets us and we pick up on Day 41 at the veto ceremony. Alyssa leads the meeting, but Kyland gets to deal with his veto first. He has decided to use the POV on Claire. Now he has to name a replacement nominee and he names…Britini as that replacement. Alyssa is up with her veto and she has decided not to use the POV. Alyssa says other than Xavier she feels like everyone is against her and she did not want him backdoored. Big D says he volunteered being a pawn but he cannot campaign against Britini. Claire says Ky was dangling her over a cliff and saved her at the last minute. She is not going to say thank you, she wants to know why he put her there in the first place. Ky says as long as everyone sticks to their plan they can save Big D and Britini will go. Britini is crying and she is saying she knew it and Azah and Big D are comforting her. Britini says they are all obsessed with her. She says she made a deal with Ky and he went back on it. She is so sick of being picked on in the house. Azah says she knows that their friends will be sent home, but it still sucks to see Britini up there and it breaks her heart. Britini says she is so frustrated and Big D tells her to let it out. Claire is talking to Tiffany and she says she does not have a great relationship with Big D but she can beat him at anything, but he will keep skating by. Claire says everyone will want to take Big D to the end, but that means people are not thinking about taking her. Claire wants to pitch getting rid of Big D this week. Tiff says Claire is her girl and she wants to entertain her ideas, but Big D is part of the Cookout and Britini will be going home. Derek X and Hannah are talking about taking Big D and Hannah says no one will go over him and Derek X says he is the most protected guy in this house. Derek X says keeping Britini would be good for their game because she would go after Ky and X. Hannah says she cannot come up with rebuttals, but she is part of the Cookout. Derek X talks to Claire and Tiff and he tells them he thinks Britini should stay and says she would be loyal to them and she could take shots for them. Tiff tells Derek X that she and Claire would put up Ky and SB and Derek X says Britini is another person who would also take that shot and she could also be a shield for them. Tiff says Claire and Derek X will not let this go and they need to stop coming at the Cookout. Xavier is talking to Tiff about a plan for the next week. She tells him her two favorite people outside of the six want Big D gone. X says one of them has to go. Claire says she loves Claire and Derek X but the Cookout is a priority for her and they are both smart players. Claire would be really sad to lose either one of them, but for the sake of the Cookout, she has to accept that. X says then he needs to gun for the HOH hard. Tiff says Derek X asked her if there were anymore white guys left. X says they are low key putting it together. Xavier and Kyland are talking and they think it is best case scenario for X to win. X says Derek X is a big threat to not just him, but to the Cookout. They want to talk him into throwing the HOH competition. Derek X, Ky, and Xavier are talking and Derek X says they kind of have to work together otherwise the strong guys will just get picked off one by one. X says they need to show trust with one another and X says if he throws it to him, he promises to keep him and Hannah safe. Derek X is talking to Claire and he is talking about his conversation with Xavier. Claire says he does not see those two working together and you can never trust what people are saying. She says people are telling you something for a reason. Time for the eviction! Britini has another rap that includes a shoutout to her family and then she says she would appreciate them voting for her if they think she can advance their game and she respects their decisions. Big D does his shoutouts and tells the HG if they want to have their stomachs full of food and lots of laughter and a clean living environment, then they should keep him here. It is time to vote! Xavier votes to evict Britini. Hannah says with a great amount of sadness she votes to evict Britini. Claire votes to evict Britini. Derek X votes to evict Britini. Azah votes to evict Big D. Tiffany votes to evict Britini. Sarah Beth votes to evict Britini. Alyssa votes to evict Britini. By a vote of 7-1, Britini has been evicted from the Big Brother house! Britini hugs everyone and says she loves them and wishes them luck and heads out to meet JC. Julie says Britini was on the block four out of six weeks, why does she think they chose now to evict her. Britini says with the underdog story she had that no one would want to take her to the end and she takes it as a compliment. Julie says America gave her $100 BB bux but she did not play in the high rollers room. Why not? She says she wanted save them for the roulette wheel and she thought she was ok with Ky. But he is a liar. Julie asks if she only feels betrayed by Ky and she says she feels betrayed by Claire and Tiff also and Tiff did not fight to keep her. But it is a game and she understands people not wanting to make that big of a move. Azah says she did every thing she could to keep her in this game and she is sorry it had to end this way. X says she fought her fight and she is a big burst of sunshine and that will be missed. Claire says Britini staying would have been best for her game, but the group did not see that. Big D says he will miss her and she is special in every type of way and he loves her so much. It is time for the HOH competition! This competition is called Dash to Dinner. They have to navigate balance beams and hit a buzzer. But the beams are different sizes and they are on a timer. Fastest to get to the end will win HOH! Julie sends everyone but Claire behind the wall and Claire is first and she begins moving. She tries the narrow beam and falls and then goes to the other one. She is moving pretty well and she is close to the end and rings in with 34.97 seconds. Alyssa is next and her time begins. She immediately goes down the big beam and travels the same path Claire did. She is moving quickly and she is on the final beam and rings in and falls at the end and she hits the ground as she hits the buzzer and she is eliminated. Big D is next and his time begins. He moves down the big beam and is moving pretty quickly, but he is wobbly. He is moving the well and is on the last section but he just misses the time but a couple of seconds. Sarah Beth is up next and her time begins. She almost runs the first section and she is moving very quickly. She finishes with a time of 21.03. SB is the new leader and Claire has been eliminated. Azah is next and her time begins. Azah moves down the narrow beam and is wobbly and she has to begin again. She moves the bigger beam and her time expires not even halfway through and she is eliminated. Hannah is up next and she moves quickly on the first second. She is moving pretty well. She is on the last section, but clearly behind the leader time and her time expires and she is eliminated. Tiff is up next and her time begins. She tries the narrow beam and is wobbly and slow but she makes it. She moves faster on the next beams and hits the last narrow beam but does not make it and she is eliminated. Derek X is up and he starts on the narrow beam and falls and has to reset. He moves quickly on the next sections but he is behind. He tries the final narrow beam and makes it but just misses the buzzer by a second or two and he is eliminated. Xavier is the final HG to compete and he is moving quickly but he falls on the second beam and eh tries the narrow beam and tries to move quickly and jump and falls. X is eliminated and Sarah Beth is the new HOH!
  19. Previously, on Big Brother, the secret Cookout alliance was sizzling and each member was sauteing with a side dish. With only eleven players left, a callout comp had the Cookout at odds. In the end, Kyland got his second HOH of the summer! Wanting to keep the Cookout along with his partner Sarah Beth and Derek X safe, he had limited options. Big D offered to be a pawn to protect Britini. And after Claire indicated that members of the Cookout were on her radar, she inadvertently made herself Ky’s top target. A new twist called the High Roller’s room was open and America gave HG either 50, 75, or 100 BB Bux to gamble for powers. With a chance to bet on a veto player and possibly win a second veto on the line, Kyland, Sarah Beth, Big D, Tiffany, and Claire played. Tonight, will a second veto be unleased on the game. Plus OTEV is back and he is jacked! All this right now on Big Brother! We pick up on Day 38 and Kyland, Derek F, Claire, and Sarah Beth get to bet on who will win veto. Kyland says this twist is huge, so both of his nominees could get pulled off the block. He needs to win one of these vetoes so his HOH week does not get screwed up. Claire is going to get a chance to bet on another player so she is doubling her chances. Derek F says even though he volunteered to be the pawn, he is acting like he is the real target and he does not want to be on the block on Thursday. Britini says she did not play in the veto derby because she felt safe because she made a deal with Kyland for two weeks of helping each other. Kyland says those terms are ones he can agree to. Britini wants to save her BB bux so she can play in future weeks. Derek F goes to the HOH room and he says it is hard pretending he does not like him. He asks why Kyland he played and he says he wanted the power to get used while one of them is HOH. Derek F says that was a smart play and he wants to know who the target is. Kyland says there could be two vetoes in play and he wants to keep his options open. Claire is his target, but he could also target Alyssa or Britini. Derek F says Kyland does not know what is on his mind, he just hopes he is not the target or one of the Jokers. Derek F is talking to Britini and Azah and he says he thinks he is the target. He says it is hard to keep up the act to the girls but he wants to keep them calm. Azah thought Britini would be Kyland’s target and after the HOH comp she thought she would be next to her. Azah is confused because Derek F is saying he is the target. She says Kyland is in the Cookout, but she does not fully trust him. Britini says veto picks is very important so maybe two of those vetoes can be held by Jokers. Tiff is trying to figure out if she can get Claire out of danger, because even though she is not in the Cookout, she is not ready to lose her yet. Ky tells Tiff that Claire is the target and tells her who Claire said her targets were. Tiff does not think that is true. Tiff says Claire! What are you doing?!? You do not tell people who your targets are if you do not know who they are aligned with. Now she has to dig Claire out of this hole. Tiff says Claire will listen to her and she can divert her attention on to someone else. Kyland feels Tiff is confident about what Claire is going to do. Kyland says now he has narrowed down his targets to Britini and Alyssa. He says he has to see how this veto goes before he can lock in on his target. It is time to pick players for the veto competition! Ky draws Alyssa. Claire draws Azah. Derek F HG choice and he selects Britini. Britini says this is best case scenario. Alyssa is glad to play because she does not feel safe. The winners of the veto derby will place their bets on who will the veto. They get a clue on the upcoming veto competition and it says veto backwards. Derek says this is a quintessential comp and he is mad he is not playing on this veto. Kyland gets to place his bet first and he bets on Alyssa. Derek F is second and he bets on Britini. Claire bets on Kyland. Sarah Beth bets on Azah. Derek F says no one had faith in him or Claire. Claire says with this veto derby, it is about to be intense. 6 players, 4 bets, and 2 vetoes up for grabs in the one and only OTEV. It is about to be on. Let’s go! We have OTEV the jellyfish and he is jacked. He needs special jelly to get even more jacked. They are supposed to bring him his jelly with the names of two evicted HG. The last HG standing wins veto. Derek F wants to win veto, but it will be better if Britini wins veto to keep the Jokers safe. Claire says she bet on Ky so if he wins, she gets the second veto. Ky wants to take Claire off the block and replace her with Britini or Alyssa and he is going to play savage. Round 1-he needs the jelly of the HG who were evicted the week veto was used. Claire knows it is Travis and Christian so she is looking. Alyssa wants to win POV to make sure she is not backdoored next. She gets her jelly and she starts to head up the ramp. Alyssa is first back and everyone is still looking. Britini has it and runs for the ramp and Azah is behind and Kyland is with them. Azah struggles and face plants. Kyland is cheering Azah on and she makes it up. It is between Big D and Claire and he falls and he falls hard. He keeps fighting to get up there but Claire makes and everyone is cheering Big D on and he makes it to the top, but he is last. They all have brought Honey Christian and Mint Travis Jelly and they are all correct and Big D has been eliminated. He says it sucks but all he can do is pray that Britini wins so he can get a veto too. Round 2-he needs the jelly of the evicted HG who were on a team together. Kyland knows it is Whitney and Brent. Claire is up first, then Alyssa, and Kyland is going up. It is now between Azah and Britini. Azah throws Britini the right jelly and Tiff is bothered by it. Tiff says Azah is obviously throwing the comp and it does not surprise her at all. Britini and Kyland are up with Alyssa and Claire. Azah finally finds another right answer and makes it up. They all brought Walnut Whitney and BoysenBrent jelly. Azah has been eliminated. Round 3-he needs the jelly of the evicted HG who competed in the Massive Cocktails competition. Alyssa knows it is Frenchie and Travis because she competed against them in that competition. Alyssa is the first to the top with Claire right behind. Kyland and Britini hit the ramp at the same time and Britini is the last to the top. They all brought Tangerine Travis and Mango Frenchie jelly. Britini has been eliminated and she is devastated. Round 4-he needs the jelly of the evicted HG who were not team captains. Claire says she is the last team captain remaining. She knows she is looking for Travis and Brent. Kyland finds it and is first to the top. Claire cannot find the right answer. Alyssa is up second. Claire is the last to the top. They have all brought Blackberry Brent and Goji Berry Travis jelly. They are correct and Claire has been eliminated. Claire is disappointed because she wanted to win, but if Kyland wins she can still win the second veto. Final round-he needs the jelly of the HG were evicted on even numbered days. Alyssa tells Kyland she will do whatever he wants with it if he lets her win. Kyland wants to save Claire so it builds trust and he is going to throw it to Alyssa. Alyssa says Frenchie was evicted day 16 and Whitney was evicted day 30. Claire is frustrated because she can tell Kyland is throwing and she says he is a real jackass right now. Alyssa has brought Wild Whitney and Frenchie Berry jelly. Alyssa is correct and she has won the POV and Kyland has won the second POV for betting on her. Alyssa is so excited to win on an OTEV and she hopes Christian is excited. Kyland says even though he lost the competition he still won veto and he flushed the power and now he can lock in Britini as his target. Big D is not happy because he wanted all the Jokers to be safe. Claire is so upset because she has no opportunity to take herself off the block. Britini says she is a little nervous because she has no idea what will happen. Claire’s Duke of the Deck punishment is over. We then see Kyland’s jackass punishment is over. Kyland is in the hammock with SB and they are talking about nominations and she would target Big D and if one came down Britini would go up. SB is glad they agree that Britini is the target because she targeted her in the HOH comp and then did not talk to her about it so she needs to go. Kyland is telling Big D that Britini is the target and he is trying to stay calm, but he is not really calm. Big D says he needs to come up with a plan to get her out of this. Kyland says it will be better for Britini to be against Derek F because then he would not have to campaign. Big D says he is just scared of who Derek X would target if he were to get HOH. Kyland says there are plenty of reasons to go after Derek X because he is intelligent and a competitor and could figure out The Cookout. He says this would be a good backdoor, but he is a good friend and he does not want emotions to cloud his judgement. 10 minutes before the veto meeting Ky wants SB to give Britini a heads up she might be a replacement nominee. She likes this idea so maybe if she is in final two she can get Britini’s vote. SB tells Britini about her being a potential replacement nominee and she goes to find Ky and says he is a liar. She wants to talk to Ky and he tells her there are reasons. She says she has been honest. Ky says he is trying to get his game as far as possible. Britini asks who she will be sitting next to and he says it will depend on if Alyssa uses the veto. Britini says he is going to go back on their deal? He says he is trying to get rid of an unpredictable variable. Ky says she does not show her cards and she says she could not because she was on the block three times and it is about to be four. She says their deal meant something to her. Ky says he is just trying to do what is best for his game. Britini says they had a deal and he went back on it like an arrogant little b*tch and he apologizes as she walks away. Ky says he feels heartache for her and he wonders if there are other options. Ky says there are people who would like to see him backdoor Derek X. He needs a second. Britini says she will fight like hell to stay in this house but they are about to see her fourth degree blackbelt come out. No way is she going out silent.
  20. Terry greets us for the second week of the lives. 12 acts will perform tonight and 7 will move on. Our first act is T3 and they received a golden buzzer in a box as a replacement for Simon’s golden buzzer who is no longer in the competition. They take the stage and perform good 4 u by Olivia Rodrigo. Howie says T3 was all in harmony and it was good. Heidi preferred them a capella and she thinks they were better than that. Sofia says she loved it and enjoyed it, but liked their previous performance better. Simon says he agrees with Heidi and he thinks they blew it. Dukteuk Crew is next and they are a Korean dance group. Heidi says she really likes these guys and they are in sync and they feel like they are doing special effects and it elevates the dance. Sofia says Dukteuk Crew was a little too orange for her but she loved the dance and she would have preferred it to be a little less orange. Simon says they lost the group in the backdrops and colors. Howie says he loved it and the synchronicity was great. Next is Johnny Showcase and he is an entertainer. He takes the stage and performs an original song. Simon and Howie hit their buzzers. They get an ovation from Heidi. Sofia says there was so much going on and they lost their essence and it did not click. Simon says Johnny Showcase was horrific. He says they were so good the first time, but this song was horrible. Howie says he did not get the joke. Heidi says she loved it and she is totally on overdrive and it was hilarious and she loved it. Tory Vagasy is our next act and she is a singer. She takes the stage and performs Heart of Stone by SIX. Howie thinks she is an amazing singer and she deserves to be on Broadway, but he thinks in this lane on this season and he does not thinks he has a chance. Simon says Tory Vagasy knows who she is and where she wants to be and that started off as a good performance and ended up a great performance. Heidi thought it was a flawless performance. Sofia says there is nothing bad to say about her and it felt so real. Shuffolution is a dance act who is ready for their performance. Simon says their audition was one of his favorite this year but that was a huge step back for him. It felt like something he seen a million times. Heidi says she loved their energy and music, but it did seem repetitive. But they were fantastic. Howie says there is a lot of pressure this year and they are truly deserving of being here. Sofia did not like the song but today felt like a cheerleader thing. Next up is Aidan Bryant and he is an aerialist. He gets an ovation from three of the judges. Heidi says he is an inspiration and it is insane how good he is. Sofia says he looked like a professional. Howie says he has always been impressed by Aidan Bryant and he loves what he did, but the resets were too long between tricks. Simon says this so far has been the best live performance by a mile. He says he is a star in the making and he is the one to beat. The Northwell Nurse Choir is next and they take the stage and perform You Will be Found from Dear Evan Hansen. They get an ovation from everyone. Howie says he feels so emotional and that was a beautiful moment. Sofia says The Northwell Nurse Choir was spectacular and it was emotional and spiritual and fantastic. Simon says he believes America and the world needs them right now and it was better than the first audition. Heidi says they touched her and it was beautiful. Positive Impact is up and they are a strength act. They begin their act that involves basketball goals and Simon buzzes halfway through the act. Simon says the buzzer was about the act being a mess and he would call that No Magic Mike. Howie does not agree with Simon, but he loved Positive Impact’s previous performance better. Heidi says this is the only place you can see this type of act. Sofia says she thinks everyone loved it, but these guys are fresh and different. Our next act is Peter Antoniou and he is a mentalist. He takes the stage with Howie, Sofia, and Heidi. Howie says that is kind of unbelievable and he came through with flying colors. Heidi loves how there are so many layers to Peter Antoniou’s act and it is super engaging and special. She loved it. Simon says Peter is a wizard. Next up is Korean Soul and they singing I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing by Aerosmith. Heidi says it was a different version but I was all about them. She missed them being more intertwined but she loved it. Sofia liked Korean Soul’s outfits and she thinks they are getting better. Simon says he likes them. He missed the harmonies and he thought the song was a bit predictable and he thinks they need to do something different. Howie says that was his favorite of the night. Josh Blue is up next and he is a comedian. He takes the stage for his set. Howie says he is amazing and funny and informative. He says he checks every box and he is a superstar. Sofia says Josh Blue is funny, disabled or not, he is amazing and inspirational. Simon says he is very naught and he has a great edge about him. He says there is a buzz before he comes on and he adores him. Heidi says he is truly one of a kind and he is very funny. Our final act is Victory Brinker and she is a singer. She takes the stage and performs opera. Simon says he remembers Carrie Underwood and he knew she would sell millions and he predicts Victory will be one of the biggest stars to emerge from one of these shows. Sofia says Victory Brinker amazes her because she is so young and singing like someone who has done it for years. Heidi says she has the most amazing gift. Howie says she is amazing and people have to vote.
  21. Previously, on Big Brother, the team twist was over, Derek X was in power, and Christian was in trouble. The Cookout was a secret and powerful alliance and each member was working with a partner outside the group. Two new punishments were revealed, and soon after Christian’s fate was revealed, and he had to kiss the house and Alyssa good-bye. With everyone now in jury, Julie unleashed a huge new twist. Tonight, find out who America awarded with the most BB bucks. Plus a new HOH will be a crowned and two more HG will hit the chopping block. All this now on Big Brother! It is Day 37 and it is time for Name that Croon! Derek F thinks it might be a dance battle and he has the moves. Derek X says he made a huge move, but with twist maybe he can win a power. Two at a time, HG will face off at the podium and they will hear a short BB lounge song that will be about a competition they have played. First to ring in with the right answers stays in the game and names the next two to face off. Alyssa says it is so crucial to win HOH because she is a lone wolf right now because she just lost her best ally. Kyland does not want to win HOH because Sarah Beth might be the next target and he does not want to send her out. The first song is up and Claire rings in with HOH, but she is wrong, it was a veto competition. Claire has been eliminated. Britini selects SB and Kyland. Song 2 is going and Kyland rings with HOH and he is correct. SB has been eliminated. Kyland selects Britini and Azah. Song 3 is playing and Azah rings in with Wildcard and she is correct. Britini has been eliminated. Azah selects Kyland and Alyssa. Song 4 is next and Kyland slaps the veto button and he is correct. Alyssa has been eliminated. Kyland selects Azah and Big D. Song 5 is up and Azah selects veto and she is correct. Big D has been eliminated. Azah selects Tiffany and Hannah. Song 6 is up and Tiffany hits HOH and she is correct. Hannah has been eliminated. Tiffany selects Azah and Kyland. Song 7 is ready and Kyland hits Wildcard and he is correct. Azah has been eliminated. All that is left is Xavier and Tiffany. Song 8 is playing and Xavier hits Wildcard and that is incorrect. Xavier has been eliminated. The final round is Tiffany vs Kyland and song 9 is playing. Tiffany wants a letter from home and to see her son. They are both thinking. Tiffany finally picks Wildcard and she is incorrect. It was an HOH competition and Kyland is the new HOH! Azah says she is happy she is safe because Kyland is part of The Cookout, but she thought he would throw the competition to her. Tiffany is upset because Kyland tried to throw it to her and she missed the question and he will not nominate Sarah Beth. Azah says she knows they have to let people go but she is crying because she is afraid it is Britini and Xavier is comforting her. Xavier says keeping The Cookout together is one of the toughest jobs he has had in his damned life. Big D is talking to Kyland and he tells him to be smart about his power. They are talking about how to adjust to the powers that are available and they also talk about all the girls still being in the house. Kyland mentions Claire, Alyssa, and Britini as the three targets. Kyland says Claire is a great player, and Britini was targeting him during that competition, and Alyssa is outside of the alliance of six. Tiffany says Kyland winning means SB is not going home and she is concerned about Claire. Xavier says the longer you are in the house the closer you become with people and it makes it hard for emotions not to cloud judgement. Tiffany does not want anyone in the house think their connections are not real, but she knows it has to be done. Kyland is talking to Azah and he asks how she is doing and she says she is ok. Azah wants to discuss the HOH Competition and why he kept picking her. He says he did not know what other allies Britini might have had. Kyland and Azah are both feeling like there is an attitude between them and they decide to reset and discuss things further. Kyland says Azah is not a great communicator and she explains that him on throwing the comp made her question things. Claire is in to talk to Kyland and she says these nominations are so pivotal. She is not confident who his targets are this week. Claire tells him she would help do what is best for his game. She mentions Xavier or a joker would be a good target. Kyland says he is asking about targets and Claire is tossing out names of The Cookout. She may have to go sooner that he thought. As she is leaving the king wants to be entertained with a game of 52-card pickup. Kyland is talking to Big D and Kyland says he does not want to upset the wrong people, especially with new powers being available. Big D is discussing Britini being lost, and Claire being a potential threat and they discuss Alyssa. Big D pitches SB as a pawn. Kyland pitches putting up Azah and maybe Big D as a pawn so they can figure things out. Kyland says he would take Big D down if he won veto. Big D wants to protect Azah and Britini so Ky can figure out who he wants to send home. Big D agrees. It is time for nominations! Kyland’s first nominee is…Claire. His second nominee is…Big D. Kyland has nominated because actions taken during the HOH competition caused him to reevaluate his position in the house and he wishes them luck. Kyland says Claire told him all her targets were members of The Cookout and Big D is a pawn. Claire says what is Kyland doing? She needs to get herself off the block somehow, some way this week. Azah is a little surprised and she thought she would see herself on the block. She has no idea what is going on in Kyland’s mind. Big D is not telling Azah and Britini that he is a pawn and he does not want them to say something to ruin the plan. Tiff and Claire are talking and she is telling Claire she has her vote. Tiff says Claire has been close since day one and losing her this early would not be good for her game. The HG are sleeping and they hear music. The High Roller room is now open! Xavier says the room has a good vibe to it. They are welcomed and they all have the opportunity to gamble for greatness. For $50, they can play a game to win a chance to bet on who will veto and if they are correct they will win a second veto. For $125, they can play a game to win the power to remove a nominee from the block and a replacement will be named via a roulette wheel. For $250, they can play to win the power to overthrow the HOH. No one will be able to play anything but veto derby first. They can play or save their money. And there will be other opportunities to win BB bucks. Kyland says it is an interesting twist but he is not a fan. Sarah Beth has received $50 and she is going to play. She will press a button to start the clock and then select a mint julep to slide down the table and after three shots she stops the clock. The sum of her total will be her final score. SB’s first hits 2, her second falls off. and her third hits 2. Her total is 2. Hannah has $75 and she decides not to play. Xavier also has $75 and he saves his bucks too. Britini has $100 and she is excited and she saves her money. Azah has $50 and she has chosen not to play. Alyssa has $50 and she saves her BB bucks. Kyland receives $50 and he chooses to play to keep all the power in his hands. His first shot his 4, his second hits 2, and his third hits 3 and he scores 9. Claire tells Tiffany not to play because it is not worth it. Tiffany gets $75 and she wants to play. Tiffany says she still needs Claire here. She hits 1, then 1 again, then her third shot knocks all of them off. Her score is 0. Derek X has $100 and he decides to save his bucks for next week. Big D gets $100 and he decides to play. He scores a 1, then a 2, then a 2, for a total of 5. Claire has $50 and she decides to play. Claire scores a 2, then a 2, then the last one falls off for a score of 4. Everyone is told to gather in the living room. First place is Kyland with 9 points. Derek F scores 5 points. Claire is third with 4 points. Sarah Beth is fourth place with 4 points. There are no fifth or sixth place finishers. So only Kyland, Derek F, Claire, and Sarah Beth will get to bid on who will win. Kyland wants to make sure he wins so he can protect his HOH. Claire has the chance to get a second veto which has doubled her odds to come off the block. Tiff says Kyland saved SB last week and he is saving her this week. She wants to save Claire and get her off the block this week.
  22. Previously, on Big Brother, with the team twist done, the Cookout was the most powerful alliance in the house. But cracks in the Cookout were beginning to form. After Derek X won power, he formulated a plan to take out a blue chip player. So Derek started by putting two pawns on the block. With the veto on the line, punishments were given, and power was won. Before the veto meeting, Derek X came clean to Christian’s showmance, sending ChrisAlys and their allies scrambling and leaving Christian to plead for his life in the game. Tonight, will Derek X back down or back door? Plus the last HG before jury will be evicted tonight. And a huge new twist is reveal where America will have a huge impact on the game. All this live, right now on Big Brother! Julie greets us and it is Day 37 and we revisit whether Derek X will backdoor or not. It is the veto meeting and Britini has decided to use the POV on herself. Derek X must name a new replacement nominee and he nominates…Christian. Derek X says it is no secret that Christian is a large competitive threat to everyone. He is sorry. The veto meeting is adjourned and Christian says Derek X is a coward for putting him up on a week when he could not compete for his safety. Christian says he already two votes with Xavier and Alyssa, he just needs two more votes. And he is going to go get them and he is staying. Derek X says everything is going perfectly and they just need to get Christian out the door this week. Sarah Beth says Christian is perfect to sit next to on the block and she just has to lay low. Alyssa tells Christian she tried and she asks what he wants to do. Derek F comes in to give Christian a hug, but he wants to give him his privacy. Alyssa says it is not smart for Derek F’s game to leave a girl in the game and get rid of another guy. Derek F says he has to check in with the Jokers and the Cookout and see where everyone’s head is at. Christian calls for the Lord of the Litrine and he thinks Sarah Beth is the reason he is on the block. He tells Derek X that SB was selfish by pleading for him not to take the $5000 and not taking the veto. Christian says they are each other’s shields. The Duke of the Deck has to entertain and Claire heads to the DR. She has dressed as a carditard and she has to wear it all week long. And when the king demands to be entertained, she has to play 52-card pickup all week. Kyland and Derek X are playing chess and Kyland is the jackass and he has to make club sandwiches for everyone in the house when the kings demands it. He has a jackass of clubs costume and he has to wear it all week. Kyland says his first round of sandwiches took him an hour or an hour and a half and this is the first of seven days. He says next time he will just take the $5000. He did not even know what a club sandwich was before. Tiffany tells Christian that the nomination was a shock to everyone and she says SB was very relaxed. Christian says she does not bother him, but Claire and Tiffany worry him. Tiff says she hates to see him in that seat and she does not know where the house is. Tiffany says she will vote with the house and Christian says she and Claire are the house and they could be the swing. Christian says he is their shield and he would be fighting for them. Tiff says she has a soft spot for Christian, but she knows he needs three votes. Tiffany wants to tell Britini and Azah they have to tell Christian they are not voting for him to stay. Azah says that puts Britini in a difficult spot and Tiffany says she is in a difficult spot and if he asks again she will tell him she is not the swing vote. Britini likes Christian more than SB and right now she does not really know where her vote is going. Derek F says he wants to tell everyone he does not want to be part of the alliance anymore and Azah says please do not say that. Derek F does not want to work with Tiff anymore because she tries to tell everyone what to do. Derek says she is not his mother or God and she does not need to tell people what to do. Derek F says she is trying to play puppet master and he does not have a clown face. Tiffany is talking to Christian and she tells him he does not need one vote. He needs three. She says not one of those Jokers is voting for him to stay. Christian believes he has two votes from the Jokers and Tiff says she is not lying. Christian says him staying makes that entire side of the safe. He says who beats Baby D? Tiffany says he does. Tiff says it might be more beneficial to keep Christian and get rid of Sarah Beth. Tiff is talking to Xavier and she thinks if she pushes hard enough that Christian will stay. Xavier agrees and wants to know what the argument is to take him out. Tiff says they have X who can take Christian out later in the game. Tiff says Xavier and Alyssa are on board to keep Christian and she would only need two votes. She thinks she can make that happen. She goes to talk to Claire and they both agree it is beneficial for him to stay. Claire says it is better for everyone except DX. Claire says she does not trust Kyland or SB. She and Tiff decide they flip. Tiff tells Xavier to send Britini up to the HOH. She thinks she can convince Britini to keep Christian. Christian goes and tells Britini to go to the HOH room and Azah wants to know who needs her. Azah and Derek F are going to go with Britini and Christian says no just Britini. Derek F does not want Britini manipulated, especially after she was a pawn for three weeks. Derek says she wants them there. Tiff says she will wait. Britini goes to talk to Xavier and Hannah and she tells them what Derek F just did. She says he and Azah came in like Britini’s body guards and she is mad. Hannah and Xavier are talking and they say they had one job to stick together and now they are yelling at each other. It is time for the live eviction! Christian does shoutouts and he says he played a loyal and competitive game and he understands it is a game and he wants to be friends when they are done. SB does shoutouts and she says she is on the block against a phenomenal person but she is not ready to go home and she promises she would give an objective vote if she made jury and she loves and respects them all. It is time to vote! Hannah votes to evict Christian. Kyland sadly votes to evict super competitor Christian. Xavier votes to evict Sarah Beth. Alyssa votes to evict Sarah Beth. With two votes each, we will have to see how the other five votes go. Britini sadly votes to evict the incredible Christian. Derek F sadly to evoke Christian. Tiffany sadly votes to evict Christian. Claire votes to evict Christian. Azah votes to evict Christian. By a vote of 7-2, Christian has been evicted from the Big Brother house! He gives hugs and dips and kisses Alyssa. Julie says that was quite a kiss and Christian says it was a goodbye kiss. He does not know where they stand so they will see what happens after the show. Julie asks why he could not get the flip and he says he had the numbers against him with his comp wins. Julie says Derek X told him he would not put him up as a replacement nominee, but he was gunning for him all along. Does he respect the game move? Christian says he respects the game move because he did what was best for his game, but it was not a smart decision. Julie asks Christian his final thoughts and he says he did not come for the money, he just came for some good friends and he was disappointed he did not get to compete in the wall comp. Julie goes to the living room for more news! They are all on jury at this point. The next big twist is America involves a new room, the high rollers room. Inside are three unique BB casino games and three game changing powers. How would they like to take themselves off the block? Or win a second veto? Or flip the ultimate power to their favor? America will vote to give them BB bucks and the top three HG with the most votes will get $100, the next three will get $75, and everyone else gets $50. The better the power, the more it costs to play, but they do not have to spend their cash immediately and they can bank it for later down the line.
  23. Previously, on Big Brother, with outgoing HOH Christian unable to compete, an epic battle of endurance was on, and after a seaside showdown, Derek x promised safety to both Alyssa and Xavier, allowing the former Ace to take the crown. Post competition Xavier tried to sweeten the safety deal for his entire former team, but Derek did not feel comfortable with that arrangement. Although Derek X had been working in the Royal Flush alliance with the former Kings and Queens he was considering taking a shot at one of them. So Derek x needed pawns and Derek’s top ally Hannah pushed hard to get Sarah Beth on the block. At the nomination ceremony, Derek x got his pawns and Hannah got her wish. Tonight, will the POV save one of the nominees and allow Derek x to successfully backdoor Christian? Plus what punishments will be unleashed on the HG? We pick up on Day 31 after the nomination ceremony, and Derek X tells us Britini and Sarah Beth are pawns so he can backdoor Christian. He is a comp beast and he is positive he would go home. Sarah Beth is surprised because she didn’t think he would take a shot this early and she is in survival mode. Britini is frustrated because she was only safe for seven days and she is upset because no one knows what it feels like. Derek F is comforting Britini and she is crying in frustration. Britini says if she does not win the veto, this is so bad. SB is talking to her team and she asked if any of them knew. Alyssa says this is stupid and Christian says this makes no sense. Christian says what was Derek X thinking nominating a member of his own alliance. It does not make any sense. Christian promises he will fight for Sarah Beth in veto. SB says the kings say they will fight for her but she wants to talk to Derek X and see what is going on. Derek X is talking to SB and she looks very angry and there is an awkward silence. She thinks he will not tell her what is going on and she needs him to be honest. So her plan is to sit in dead silence and let him sit in awkwardness. Derek X says he does not want SB to go home. He says he made a deal with Xavier and Alyssa so she was going to go up and he talked to the Jokers. SB says if she is not his target, what happens if she comes off the block? SB says if she does not come off will he put up a joker and he says no. He tells her if she picks Christian to play and he wins he is going to tell Christian that he will put up Alyssa. SB says she is not surprised he is taking a shot at Christian, but it is early. SB says she loves her team but she has been playing an individual game and if that means betraying them then that is ok. Christian, Xavier, and Alyssa go to talk to Derek X. Derek X has to convince them SB is not the target. Derek X says putting up two Jokers would have been bad for his personal game and he had to nominate someone from the Kings because Hannah is smart and it takes suspicion off their alliance. Xavier says to be clear Britini is your target this week and Derek X nods. Xavier says what happens if a nominee comes off the block? Derek X says then another Joker will have to go up. Christian thinks Derek’s explanation makes sense and at this point he still trusts him. Alyssa says she will fight for SB too. SB says if Alyssa wins veto then her best ally will go home, but she is going to have to let her make that mistake. She tells Alyssa she appreciates that she would fight for her. It is time to pick players for the veto competition! Derek X picks Alyssa. Sarah Beth picks Claire. Britini picks Kyland. Derek X says the backdoor plan could still happen. It is time for the veto competition! It is a gym set up and they will have to do reps on some equipment. Whoever does the fewest reps will be eliminated and open a locker for a prize. Derek X does not want win veto. SB says she is not the target but she would still like to win veto and she will fight for it. Britini says she wants to win to get herself off the block. Alyssa wants to win to get SB off the block. Round one is up and they have to hit two chairs with their hips while squatting and they are both moving. Claire says she does AI engineering and the most squats she does is down to her computer chair and up for a snack. She is safe until jury so she can throw it. Round 1 is over and Claire has been eliminated and she gets the sixth place locker and she has the Viceroy of Veto. Claire says she knows that will go very soon. Round 2 starts and now they have two minutes to get their butts off the block as much as they can. It is down to SB and Britini and Britini passes her at the last second. SB is eliminated and gets the fifth place locker. She gets Baroness of Bling and it gives her $5000. SB chooses to keep the $5000. She says she could have taken the veto but Britini is still in the game and she would take it from her. No reason to risk getting a punishment. Alyssa says she is annoyed that SB thinks her and Kyland will work their butts off to get it. Next they have to scoot their booty’s around in a circle. Kyland has been eliminated and he gets the fourth place locker which has Duke of the Deck which is a unitard and he has to entertain the king with a 52-card pickup whenever he asks. Derek X, Britini, and Alyssa are left. Derek X says he cannot let Alyssa win. Alyssa says with her moves maybe Nikki Minaj will hit her up for her next music video. Derek X and Britini are close and Britini wins by 1. Derek X has been eliminated and he gets the third place locker which has Jackass of Clubs, which makes him dress like a jackass and make club sandwiches whenever he wants it. He was going to take the money but he could not take it from he and instead takes veto. Alyssa and Britini are up and it is the last round. Azah is surprised because Britini looks different. Britini wins and Alyssa has been eliminated and she gets the second place locker which is the Count of Communication. Alyssa gets a phone and a tablet plus a phone call. She can keep it or trade it. She keeps up. Britini gets the first place prize. She gets Lord of the Litrine, which means she will hold the only key to the downstairs toilet and has to open it for the HG and announce it. Britini has chosen to take the veto! She is the first female to win the POV and she is safe this week. SB says Derek X told her that if someone goes down Christian goes up so as long as that is true she is ok. Derek X says this was the best case scenario because when Britini comes down Christian can then go up and go home. Adios Christian! Derek X is in his costume for his punishment and he has to unlock the door and announce who is using the bathroom. We see a parade of HG gaining access and being announced. Xavier is laughing. Derek X says he has to get up no matter what time it is, even if he is sleeping. He says it was fun for the first six hours and now he is over it. He announces someone in the middle of the night and he has to announce it louder and he does not look happy. Derek X informs Alyssa about the backdoor plan because he wants to take a shot before Christian can. She assures him that they are not going after him and Derek X says Christian is the biggest threat to his game. Alyssa says he was going to make her look like a fool if she had won veto. She then tells Christian and he says he could have backdoored Derek X last week but he did not. And Derek X is a coward for not giving him a fighting chance. Xavier is talking to Derek X and he says so it is definitely a King going home? Derek X says yes. Xavier says Christian is a close ally and if he gets a chance to take a shot at Derek he will and he will not miss. Derek X is talking to Alyssa and SB and he says he is considering other options. SB tells him to do what is good for his game. That is what you are supposed to when you are HOH and she does not want him changing his mind. Alyssa gives Derek X a guarantee and Christian joins and he says it has to be a Joker. It could be anyone really, it does not matter. SB tells him he has to take the shot after Alyssa and Christian leave. She says they are coming after him either way. Derek X says there is a lot of risk and if he misses he might as well pack his bags the same night and go home. Xavier says someone has gotten in his ear and if Christian goes, then Derek X lost his shield. Christian says this is the worst position anyone could be in at this point and he has to find a way out of this or he is going up as a replacement nominee. It is time for the veto meeting! Christian wants to talk to Derek Real quick and Hannah is in the SR with them and he wants to convince Derek X to put up Big D. He says he would a shield for Derek X. He says they have to come after each other eventually, but not now. Derek X says what is happening here? He says the repercussions of this one move will affect his entire game this summer. Now he is questioning if backdooring Christian is the best move for his game. Will Derek X backdoor Christian? And who will be evicted? Find out tomorrow night on Big Brother!
  24. We are at the Dolby theater for the live shows for AGT! Terry greets us and welcomes the judges. Up first is The Canine Stars and it is the dogs who are supposed to be like the judges and using their voices and then we see some other dogs some tricks. Howie thinks The Canine Stars stepped it up. Heidi says they were so amazing and she loved it. Sofia says what a way to open the show. It was so much fun and it was a unique dog show. Simon says this was better and clever than the first audition. Our next act is Peter Rosalita and he is a singer. He has decided to sing I Have Nothing by Whitney Houston. He gets a standing ovation from everyone in the theater. Heidi says Peter is amazing and he makes her so happy. Sofia says she cannot believe that voice is coming out of him and it is unbelievable. Simon says he is gutsy and has determination and will sail through, but next time to choose a song that does not sound like his mother chose it. Howie says what a professional. Beyond Belief Dance Company is up next. The group of seven girls are featured on the stage dancing and they get an ovation as well. Sofia says she thinks they are getting better and better and that was spectacular. Simon says Beyond Belief Dance Company is so good and they have so much talent and personality. Howie says these kids are amazing and have so much energy. Heidi says this was everything and they were fantastic. Next is Madilyn Bailey and she is going to sing Titanium by Sia. She gets an ovation from Simon and the audience. Simon says he thought that was absolutely brilliant and a great performance. Howie says Madilyn was good but he responded better to the quirkiness of the internet. Heidi thought she looked beautiful and she was surprised to hear her sing a cover. Kabir Singh is a comedian and he is ready to take the stage for his set. He gets an ovation from the audience. Howie says he is so authentic and real and relatable and loveable and he is proud of him. Heidi loved Kabir too and his set made her thinks about her mom.

Dustin has Howie on stage with him for his act. He gets an ovation from everyone. Heidi says his kids have the coolest dad and she feels all warm and fuzzy inside. Sofia says Dustin has his own special kind of magic and it’s beautiful and he is a storyteller. She thinks he is at the right place. Simon says he was amazing and the way he tells stories during his act is what makes him unique. 1Achord is up next and they are a trio of singers who just recently met. They take the stage and perform Everybody Hurts by R.E.M. They get an ovation from everyone. Sofia says that was spectacular and she thinks they are going to do so well. Simon says 1Achord has been the best performance of the night so far. He thinks they are just magic. Howie says he thinks they created a lane that does not exist right now and he would buy a ticket to their concert. Heidi says it was heavenly. We have another comedian, Gina Brillon, and she takes the stage for her set. Simon says she is very funny, but he sensed a lot of nerves with her and everyone else disagrees. Simon did not think it was better than the first audition. Howie thought Gina was as good as last time and he thought tonight paid off. Heidi says she loved her and she laughed the entire time. Sofia says she was having the best time and she is so funny and she was feeling represented. Gangstagrass is up next and they are ready to take the stage. Howie says this is what America needs, but the idea is so much better than the actual music. He thought that was underwhelming. Heidi thought Gangstagrass was a lot of fun. Sofia thought it was amazing and they are unique and they are in the right place. Simon says he has liked every act, but a previous act had a moment, and this group did not, but they are likeable and talented. Sethward is up next and he is back as the peacock. Simon buzzes him. He goes to fly and there are fireworks and he falls down the stairs on fire. We see him covered and rises as a phoenix. Sofia is confused about Sethward’s act. Howie says it is amazing how he makes nothing out of so much. Heidi says she was laughing but she does not know at what. Simon says it was absolutely, bloody awful. Matt Johnson is up next and he is a danger act. He has to unlock himself from a door to avoid a saw. He is successful. Simon says that was very scary, but he thought the noises were a bit over the top. Sofia says she is glad Matt is ok. Every time he comes it gets worse and it is horrific. Howie says he taught them not to give up. Heidi says it did not make her warm and fuzzy inside. The final act of the night is Sofia’s golden buzzer, Jimmie Herrod. He takes the stage and sings Pure Imagination by Gene Wilder. Sofia says she looks like a star and that was spectacular and she does not have words for what he makes her feel. Simon says Jimmie is one of those singers who will not be forgotten. He thinks Jimmie is an artist who is headed straight for Broadway. Heidi says Jimmie is the million dollar act. Howie agrees with them and he thinks Jimmie is the singer to beat. That was perfection.
  25. Previously, on Big Brother, the secret royal flush alliance of the kings and queens and a single ace were the dominant force in the game. But a seemingly more powerful group was operating undetected, and Tiffany had a master plan to get the Cookout to the end. With Whitney and Hannah as possible targets for HOH Christian, the cookout worked to protect one of their own which Sarah Beth pushed back on putting her in Tiffanys line of fire. At the final wild card competition, Claire secured safety until jury. It was Hannah vs Whitney at the live eviction, and the house made the makeup artist take a powder. With the team twist terminated, it was every HG for him or herself on the quest for power. Who will win this epic battle of endurance and who will be put on the chopping block? Find out right now on Big Brother! We pick up on Day 30 at the start of the Head of Household competition. Britini is excited that teams are over and the wild card comp is officially banished. Christian says his HOH went exactly as planned and he is stoked and he would love Alyssa to win so he knows he is safe. Xavier says he does not need to win this HOH, but he cannot make it look like he is not going for it. Alyssa says this is her comp and Christian is her ride or die so she has to win to secure their safety. Derek F wants to win this HOH competition so badly and he knows this comp is for him and he slides off after 9 minutes. He hopes someone from the Cookout wins so he can feel safe this week. Derek X says the worst part of this by far is the rain because it is so cold. He says there is a big target on his back so for his own game he is going to hold on. Tiffany is working to get the cookout and their pawns and Alyssa is not part of that group. Azah says this competition is going to be difficult because she does terrible in the cold. Some passengers above are getting seasick and we see green goo fall on their heads. Hannah says it is a mess and she cannot see anything because stuff is filling her goggles. Claire says it is so cold and it hurts and she is not going to stay up there because she is safe until jury. She falls at 29 minutes. Sarah Beth says everyone else is flat and calm and she thinks she is safe because the former Kings will protect her. Hannah falls right after Sarah Beth at the 42 minute mark. Hannah is rooting for Derek X or any member of the Cookout. Kyland says this is crazy difficult because the wall will not stop leaning forward and the handle grips are slippery. Kyland falls after 57 minutes. Tiffany, Azah, Xavier, Derek X, Alyssa, and Britini are left. Britini wants to win because she is tired of being a pawn. She is sore and in pain but she is trying to keep her mind right. She falls at 1 hour and 4 minutes and she is disappointed. Tiffany says Alyssa is looking strong and that is making her nervous because that could jeopardize her plan. She is hoping Alyssa will just fall. Azah falls at the 1 hour and 15 minute park and she is hoping Tiffany or Xavier win this. Derek X does not think he is a big risk this week but he does not want to take any chances and he wants control. Tiffany falls at the 1 hour and 16 minute mark and she is upset. Alyssa, Derek X, and Xavier are the only ones left. Xavier is not here to win this competition, he is here to win this game and he had to throw this at the right moment. Alyssa promises Derek X and Hannah safety, but he does not want to give this HOH to Alyssa. The wall tilts and Derek X says let us get through this. Alyssa says she cannot let go and she does not know how much more she can offer Derek X. Alyssa starts to struggle and she falls at 1 hour and 20 minutes and she is so disappointed because she really wanted it. Tiffany says she is excited. She thought she was going to go have to push her off the wall. Xavier and Derek X start talking and Derek X says Xavier already had it. Xavier says it is time to officially throw the competition, but first let us make sure Xavier is safe. Xavier falls after 1 hour and 23 minutes. Derek X wins HOH and Hannah is so excited! Derek X says this is the best he has felt in this house and it feels amazing. Xavier made a deal with Derek and he will try to make the rest of the former Kings safe. Alyssa is so defeated. She feels good about Derek X winning and she thinks he knows the best move is to keep taking people out who are not part of the Royal Flush. The HG head inside and Derek X is excited he has the power. He has to decide to go the easy route and put up two jokers or take a shot at the Kings. Alyssa is crying and she says she sucks at comps, but she feels good with Derek X. Hannah and Derek X are in the SR and they celebrate and jump and hug. Hannah could not be more thrilled. She is over the moon so happy. She knows her name has been in Sarah Beth’s mouth and Christian put her on the block. She wants to be in DX’s ear. Derek X tells Hannah about the deal he and Xavier made and then he tells her that Xavier says after they fell that the Kings should stay safe. Christian says he would not go up but he might go up as a backdoor. Alyssa says she made a deal with him. Sarah Beth does not think DX will put any of them up and she says she cleared the air with Hannah. She is pretty sure Hannah knows about SB saying her name last week and she pitched to her about maybe working together. She thinks Hannah is a smart player. Xavier tells Christian that he told Derek that the Kings should be safe. Christian says he feels good about that. Derek is talking to Tiffany and Claire and he explains the deals he made with Alyssa and Xavier. Tiffany says things could get a little tricky this week. Derek X is talking to Hannah and she says they can talk. DX is thinking about going after Christian because of his competition wins. He needs to take a shot before Christian comes after him. DX says he wants to backdoor him and Tiffany mentions the Royal Flush. Hannah says what is the Royal Flush? Talk continues about taking a shot at Christian and Tiffany says they will figure it out. DX says he cannot have Christian in the veto competition so he has to figure out nominations. When Tiff left, Hannah asks about the Royal Flush. DX tells Hannah the flush is over and that it was just a one week thing to keep them safe. DX says he did not even reveal that, Tiff did! Hannah is talking to Tiff about the alliance and Tiff is realizing she made a mistake and she has to downplay the alliance. Azah and Derek F are talking and Azah says her flaw is her face. Her face reveals all her emotions and she needs to work on that or it could affect her game. Derek F says her face is a book and he is teaching her to put a book covering on her book. DX and X are talking and DX says he made a deal with X before he fell and then after he tried to make a deal to keep the Kings safe. DX wants to clarify the deal and X says he would like to keep his former team safe, but it is DX’s HOH. X is confused because the former Kings are part of the Royal Flush so he does not understand why they are even options. X tells DX that nominations would affect the Royal Flush and DX asks what he would do if he were HOH and he tosses out Britini. DX asks SB who she would like to see safe and she says the Royal Flush obviously. She says she also had a great conversation with Hannah this week. DX asks if he guarantees safety to SB what could she do for him and she says she is tight with everyone in the alliance. DX pitches SB as a pawn and asks how she would feel and she would not be ok with that and she wanted to make that clear to him. DX says putting up SB as a pawn could do more harm than good and he is not there to make enemies this week. Big D is asleep in the lounge. Xavier says he can sleep anywhere. Any place you can lie down, Big D has slept there. If there is a sleeping competition, Big D is winning it for sure. Big D thinks he can break a world record for napping. Big D is talking to DX and he says he is nervous. DX is not sure if putting up SB is a good move and he wants to backdoor Christian. He needs to figure out the best combination of pawns that will not blow up in his face after this week. Big D says he needs to take his shot. DX asks Big D if he would be willing to go up as a pawn. Big D says his worst fear is that someone would take advantage to get him out because of his social game. We see Azah says she would not be willing to go up as a pawn. DX asks Britini if she would go up as a pawn. Britini says her luck might be running out so she is not crazy about that. DX does not know what he can do. He asks Britini who she would be comfortable sitting next to and she says any King. DX is talking to Hannah. He says he has a target and he is just trying to figure out pawns. Hannah says he and Christian are the two biggest competitors and she thinks Christian would come after him. Hannah’s goal is to strongly consider SB as a pawn. Hannah says if Christian were to stay and SB were to go, that would actually be more beneficial for her. DX says this decision is impossible to make and maybe he should have stayed on that wall. He says this could be a big move and he has no idea what the right answer is. It is time for nominations! Derek X’s first nominee is…Sarah Beth. His second nominee is…Britini. He nominated them because he believes this is the best move for his personal game. Sarah Beth is mad and she did not think he would take a shot this early but she will try her best to win veto. Britini says she is the only person that has been on the block three times and she wants to win veto so bad to prove she can win a competition. DX wants to backdoor Christian and if it does not go according to plan, he is ok getting SB out. Christian does not understand why SB is on the block and he could have put up anyone not in their alliance and he took the shot.
