Big Brother All-Stars awarded one guaranteed spot in the Final 3 to a lucky competitor in Week 11 in just about the most important Head of Household of the season (though Memphis Garrett may think otherwise). With a guaranteed spot in the finale and the ability to control nominations, this is a highly coveted spot that can make or break a player's game.
Suffice to say, it's hard to believe everyone who was eligible didn't want to win it. Who was clever enough to reign supreme on the return of Knight Moves? Here's who won the Head of Household, and what they may do in terms of nominations in shaping the end of this game.
Enzo Palumbo Won The HOH
This Head of Household win came at just the right time for Enzo Palumbo, as Nicole Franzel had just tied him in overall comp wins the past week. Enzo's victory in Knight Moves was a huge win for his game, and provided he makes the right move, puts him back in the conversation to win in the finale week.
Enzo is guaranteed to get there, but will he make the right moves in order to secure his victory? It's tough to say at the moment given Enzo's relatively low-risk game in Big Brother All-Stars, but with so little time left in the game, it may happen.
How Enzo May Run His HOH
Enzo has a Final 2 with Cody Calafiore, but recently cut the same type of deals with Nicole Franzel and Christmas Abbott. He knows the move he should make, considering the only duo left in the house is Cody and Nicole. Nominating both of them leaves a chance one will go home, or it could backfire and cost him a spot in the Final 2 for his betrayal.
While this week's Head of Household may be the most coveted, the veto is what really makes all the difference. No matter who Enzo's target is, someone can win the veto not only to save themselves from eviction but also to be the sole vote in which of the other two competitors goes to the jury house. Enzo may play it safe and say Christmas is his target, hoping either Nicole or Cody will pull him for Final 2 when the time comes next week.
The other play here is to make Cody Calafiore the target, which is a good strategy. Cody is the clear favorite to win at the moment, and everyone inside the house knows they'll lose a Final 2 matchup against him. If Enzo were to nominate Cody, you'd have to think there will be 3 people competing with the goal of sending Cody home before next week. Nicole and Enzo have played a loyal game with Cody to this point, but would both really go the honorable route when a victory is just around the corner?
The truth of the matter is that it's a real toss-up who wins if Cody Calafiore leaves the house next week. Enzo has the most Head of Household wins currently, but Christmas has two veto wins in addition to the safety suite victory on top of her HOH. Nicole had a recent clean sweep week of an HOH and veto win, and as a former winner, she can always argue she conned everyone into dragging her to the end.
They all have to see that they have a solid shot against each other, provided Cody isn't around to wave his dominant strategy and comp wins in their faces. For Enzo, eliminating Cody is a move he must make to win, but his gameplay so far has me doubting he'll make that play.
