Warning! The following contains spoilers from the Big Brother All-Stars live feeds as of Sunday, October 25. Read at your own risk!
In a surprising twist of fate, Cody Calafiore did not capture the first part of the Head of Household competition. Nicole Franzel's clutch victory put the pressure on both Cody and Enzo Palumbo, who knew it was either win or be the one on the sidelines watching the final competition on finale night.
Enzo and Cody went head to head, but which one will take on Nicole on finale night for the Head of Household? Here's who won, what it means for this final week of Big Brother All-Stars and what we should expect.
Cody Calafiore Won Part 2 Of The Final HOH
Cody Calafiore has won so many competitions across Big Brother All-Stars, it seemed silly to suggest he wouldn't take another before the season's end. He and Enzo Palumbo went head to head Saturday night in part 2, and Cody is now primed to take on Nicole Franzel on finale night.
From Enzo's own admission, the competition wasn't even close. Cody blew him out of the water, and Enzo was clearly pretty frustrated about that. This must've been an all-out dominant performance for Cody and one that has to make Nicole a little nervous as she's waiting for her next showdown.
Does Cody Vs. Nicole Mean Game Over For Enzo?
Enzo Palumbo's dour mood following the competition was one part disappointment and the other part knowing he has absolutely no control over how the game ends. Nicole Franzel and Cody Calafiore had a Final 2 and, if both intend to honor that, the odds are that he will exit the game and cast his vote for the winner amongst the rest of the jury.
The best Enzo can hope for at this stage is runner-up, and it would take a couple of different things for that to happen. If Nicole wins the Final Head of Household, she would actually win if she takes Enzo to the Final 2 and cuts Cody. Nicole is clearly aware of that but isn't going to even hint that's a plan of hers out of fear she doesn't beat Cody in the Final Head of Household.
Enzo could potentially convince Cody that the vote may be closer if Cody took Nicole to Final 2, though I'm not sure even the folks in the house believe that at this point. I don't think it matters who will be sitting next to Cody at this point, it'd have to be an insanely bitter jury for them to gift Nicole or Enzo the win over him. Unless he gets cut by Nicole, there's just no way Cody will lose.
Who Would Cody Take To Final 2?
In the event that Cody Calafiore does win the Final Head of Household, he has a big decision to make. While there is a very slim chance either beats him, the runner-up will be awarded $50,000 of prize money for their troubles. It's not nearly as much as the winner gets but, hey, that's enough for someone to take a year off of work if they wanted to.
As Enzo Palumbo would say, "Nicole's won her money, yo." Not only has she won Big Brother before, but she also recently pocketed $10,000 in one of the worst luxury competitions the show has aired. $60,000 on top of the alleged $40,000 all-stars were paid to do the season at the start is some good money and money that Nicole may expect as a friend of Cody Calafiore.
On the other side, Enzo has stated he's trying to put everything he makes towards his kids. He's a family man and, by his own admission, his financial situation is not nearly as great as some of the others in the house. If we're going solely based on who needs the money more, I would say it's Enzo. Whether that will factor into Cody's decision at all, I have no idea, but I would expect it'll be brought up a couple of times by Enzo this final week.
