The Big Brother 22 house is down to its final four: Christmas Abbott, Cody Calafiore, Nicole Franzel, and Enzo Palumbo. Palumbo won his second Head of Household this season for week 11 and nominated Franzel and Abbott for eviction.
Calafiore then won his fourth Power of Veto and chose to keep the nominations the same — which makes sense because he is the only option for a replacement nominee. There has been a little chatter in the house about Calafiore evicting Franzel, who is his closest ally in the game. It is who Palumbo and Abbott are pushing him to evict, but we would be very surprised if Calafiore did that. He seems set on taking Franzel to the final two with him if he gets to choose.
Follow along below with our live eviction and Head of Household competition recap, but BE WARNED OF SPOILERS. Don’t keep reading if you don’t want to be spoiled. Also, get all the information on the Big Brother 22 live finale here.
All times Eastern.

8:05 — The recap tries to make it sound like Cody might send Nicole packing, but that would be astounding, honestly. Cody has to know what a good position he’s in and he doesn’t need to make any enemies by evicting Nicole. Evicting Christmas doesn’t make anyone mad except maybe Christmas.
8:10 — We have to spend a while talking about how long Nicole has been in the Big Brother house, which is 230 days. Well, it’s her third time playing, so that helps, but she has managed to hang around a pretty long time all three times. She also wants to be the first two-time winner, but there’s no way. There’s no way she beats either guy left at the end.
8:15 — Then there’s a whole big kerfuffle about Enzo talking about himself, Cody, and Nicole in the final three, and Christmas overhears it. Well, she has to know she’s probably going home this week. She thinks Enzo is in her corner, so she feels betrayed by him, but it’s not Enzo’s call this week, it’s Cody’s call. Enzo has been trying to get Cody to boot Nicole because that is what is in Enzo’s best interest, but Cody knows that’s not what is in HIS best interest, so he’s not keeping Christmas over Nicole.

8:20 — Christmas pleads her case to Cody to keep her, which is all she can do at this point, even if it is moot. But she swears up and down she would take Cody to the finals if she won the final Head of Household. However, I do not think that’s true. If Christmas had any brains at all, she would NEVER take Cody to the finals — nobody should! He should have to win the final HOH to get to the finals, but nobody seems to understand that.
8:30 — Jury segment. Memphis walks in like a bit of a BMOC, which is not a great look, but everyone welcomes him anyway. They’re all pretty surprised he’s there. When they watch the tape from the past week, the jury confirms what we’ve been saying for weeks — Cody is playing a great game, and evicting him is the big move someone else needs to make to have a move to point to for the jury. NO ONE can beat him! Someone has to evict Cody or it’s Cody’s game to lose.
8:40 — The pleas to Cody for his vote are pretty congenial. Nobody seems overly bitter right now. After everyone takes a turn saying goodbye, Cody votes to evict Christmas. No big surprise there. In her exit interview, Christmas is not bitter at all and it sounds like she’s pretty proud of her game. She did play a pretty good one.
8:55 — Everybody gets a video message from home, awwww. Also, voting is open for America’s Favorite Player.
Don’t forget — no Big Brother on Sunday anymore. It now airs on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific on CBS. Also, it’s not too late to sign up for the season 22 live feeds to follow along with who wins the final HOH competition.
