Warning! The following contains spoilers from the Big Brother All-Stars live feed as of Friday, October 2. Read at your own risk!
Big Brother All-Stars' Triple Eviction cut an unprecedented three houseguests from the game in one night, and before the house had too much time to breathe, they were already competing for another Head of Household. Not to be outdone by Memphis Garrett snagging his third HOH of the season, Cody Calafiore got his third as well, despite potentially poisoning three jury votes very recently.
Now, Cody's back as head of the house, and he had to put two people on the block to potentially join everyone else waiting at the jury house. Here's who Cody picked, and who's likely the target as this elimination will bring the house down to its Final Five.
Tyler Crispen took one Head of Household in the triple eviction and finally managed to end the feud between him and Dani Briones by sending her home. He also nominated Nicole Franzel who, as any good wall yeller will tell you, is in a Final 2 with Cody Calafiore which could've been seen as a shot at him as well.
Truth be told, Cody isn't all that worried about the nomination of Nicole (he has good acting skills though). She absolutely is though and will be campaigning hard for Tyler to be evicted this week. Will Nicole be able to sway the right people to get Tyler out of the house? She may not have to, but that doesn't mean she won't try all the same.
Christmas Abbott is back on the block, and yes, it may have something to do with the fact she has a Final 2 with Tyler Crispen. Christmas is also a strong competitor who aligned with one version of the "Wise Guys" alliance, and Cody Calafiore is part of the second version that excludes her.
Cody knows that in clipping Christmas, he has a good chance of indirectly weakening Memphis Garrett's position in the house. Plus, he'll have to commit to the iteration of the Wise Guys that includes Cody, which is a double bonus. Tyler Crispen might be a comp beast, but is taking out Christmas the better play?
Who Is The Target?
I reckon Cody Calafiore is going to play the back-and-forth game all week, but I think that unless the veto forces his hand he's going to pick Christmas Abbott to go home over Tyler Crispen. Regardless of whether or not he's a comp beast, Tyler is good with Cody and Enzo, and someone that can go after Memphis without them needing to do it themselves. Getting out Memphis is a priority for Cody, though one that he seemingly won't carry out himself.
Cody is really going to play up the attempt by Christmas and Tyler to flip the vote and save David Alexander over Nicole Franzel in the Triple Eviction, but I don't think he's really that mad about it. Losing Nicole would've been a blow to his game, but at this stage, not all that big of one. The point being, a lot of talk regarding that will probably be mostly to protect Nicole's ego, and keep her from complaining too much when she figures out Christmas is the target and not Tyler.
With that said, this is ultimately going to come down to who wins the veto competition. Tyler winning the veto would likely assure Christmas goes, and Christmas winning the veto would probably spell curtains for Tyler. Cody isn't going to backdoor anyone if he wins, and I don't think Enzo will use a veto to save anyone. I could see Memphis pulling Christmas down from the block to protect both versions of his Wise Guys alliance, but I also think he could be swayed to cut her loose. The true target won't be set in stone until the veto competition, but it seems like in the ideal circumstances for Cody, he sends Christmas packing.
