Finale week is finally here (some fans may say it couldn't come soon enough), and the Final 3 of Big Brother All-Stars has been decided. The stage has been set for Cody Calafiore, Enzo Palumbo, and Nicole Franzel to make a run to win the game, and the next three competitions will be key in deciding just who that person will be.
Part 1 of the final Head of Household competition is, without question, one of the biggest competitions of the game. The winner gets immediately advanced to Round 3, where they will compete against the winner of Round 2 for the Final HOH title. Here's who won the competition, and what an advantage that will be for them in this final week of Big Brother All-Stars.
Nicole Franzel Won Part 1 Of The Final HOH
Nicole Franzel just had a sweep week as Head of Household two weeks ago, and yet somehow I all but assumed her comp wins were capped for the season. It was certainly surprising to see that Nicole was the victor in this first stage of the competition, especially considering it's historically an endurance challenge. Nicole is known for many things in Big Brother, but it's safe to say physical strength is not one of them.
In either case, Nicole Franzel just completed a major move that will certainly make her a contender to win this game. The question now is whether or not she can clutch out another victory in Round 3, and be the person to make the moves necessary to win Big Brother All-Stars.
How Nicole Franzel Could Win Big Brother All-Stars
At this point, I would say that Nicole Franzel is in a decent position to win Big Brother All-Stars. The next key to winning will be to successfully capture the Final HOH in Round 3 and then cut her Final 2 partner Cody Calafiore from the game. Nicole and Enzo Palumbo are about equal in accolades in the game to this point, but cutting the season's most dominant player in the final stage would almost certainly earn her the win with the jury.
With that being said, I think this is the only scenario where it's assured Nicole wins. If Nicole chickens out and decides to take Cody to the end, the jury is going to vote for Cody. He's essentially carried both Enzo and Nicole to the end of the game with him and has had control of the house since his first Head of Household win back in Week 1. If Cody's in the Final 2, he's going to win Big Brother All-Stars, end of the story.
I also think that, with Enzo Palumbo and Nicole Franzel as close as they are in accomplishments this season, it's going to come down to who wins the Final Head of Household for the winner. If Enzo were to win Round 2 and 3 and cut Cody, I don't see any situation where Nicole beats him out with the jury. Enzo played a tremendous social game, and Nicole made more than a few enemies during her time in the house.
Plus, as a former winner in the game, there will be a bias against making Nicole Franzel the game's first-ever two-time winner. If she does secure Final Head of Household and cut Cody Calafiore, I'm not going to sit here and pretend like she didn't earn it because let's face it, she won when it mattered. It may not have been her strategy to start playing Week 9 of the game, but it's working out for her now much better than other people in the jury house who never started playing.
