‘Big Brother 22’ episode 33 recap: Did the Veto save Christmas or Nicole on October 21? [UPDATING LIVE BLOG]

When Enzo Palumbo won the “Knight Moves” Head of Household competition earlier in the week, he secured himself a place in the final three of “Big Brother 22.” The “Meow-Meow” later nominated Christmas Abbott and Nicole Franzel for eviction, but as we all know, this is the week where the Veto holder is actually the most powerful player in the game. Not only does this person automatically advance to the top three, but he or she also gets to cast the sole vote to evict. So who ended up winning the final Veto comp of Season 22: Enzo, Christmas, Nicole or Cody Calafiore?

8:00 p.m. – “Previously on ‘Big Brother’!” In the 32nd episode, Cody tried to eliminate Christmas during the “Knight Moves” HOH comp and ended up handing Enzo an easy victory. Christmas later called out Cody for his actions and he played dumb, saying he only came after her because she was the first person to move — realistically, Cody is gunning for Christmas to be sent to the jury house. Enzo briefly considered naming Cody as a nominee to end his streak as never having been nominated, but in the end he chose to put up the two women instead. Will tonight’s final Veto shake up at the game at all? Let’s go!

8:10 p.m. – Following the nomination ceremony, Enzo confirms that he would like to see Nicole go home this week because he thinks Christmas would take him to the final two. Meanwhile, Christmas is sobbing even though it makes absolutely no difference whether it is her or Cody on the block. The Veto is all that matters. What is wrong with her? She sulks at the table while Nicole awkwardly peels potatoes. Then she moves into the bedroom and continues crying. What a mess.

8:25 p.m. – The final four are excited to learn they are about to experience a luxury competition: “Clash of the BB Comics.” Each player will have to draft four “BB” comics, after which the comics will face off in head to head battles. These battles will rage on until just one “BB” comic is left standing. The All-Star who drafted that comic will win $10,000. Random draws decide which comics face off and which comic wins each duel. Despite there being absolutely no skill or strategy involved, it was kind of fun to watch these weak animations fight. In the end, Nicole took home $10k when two of her draft pics ended up making the final. The official winner was Memphis Garrett’s comic, “MemFist.” Naturally, Christmas ran away to be alone with her tears.

8:35 p.m. – Things are getting pretty slow in the “Big Brother” house. We’ve been reduced to watching Christmas wax Cody’s and Enzo’s eyebrows. Later, Cody heads into the HOH room to focus for the Veto competition. He knows if Christmas wins he’s going home this week. Enzo is secretly hoping Christmas wins because he believes he could convince her to evict Nicole. Enzo does not feel comfortable going to the end with Cody and Nicole (he shouldn’t).

8:53 p.m. – It’s time for the final Power of Veto competition of the season. In this contest, players will be given an event that occurred in the “BB” house. It’s their job to decide which day it happened. They have to use a giant hamster wheel to land on the correct day. If they’re last to land on the correct day, they get one strike. After three strikes, they’ll be eliminated. Enzo is first to be eliminated, followed by Christmas and Nicole. Cody has won the Golden Power of Veto and will sail into finale night for the second time in his “BB” career. He will also get the sole vote to decide if Christmas or Nicole is evicted on Thursday. Bye Christmas!

8:59 p.m. – Obviously Cody is keeping himself safe so there’s not even a Veto meeting. Unless there’s some type of miracle, Christmas will be evicted on Thursday and she knows it. Cody is heading into the final three as the best competitor in the house with two people he has final two deals with. He’s sitting pretty. The only way his game could end now is if Enzo or Nicole win the final HOH and wake up and realize they can’t beat him. Or could they? Crazier things have happened. But judging by how predictable this season has been, I can’t see Cody losing.
