This Big Brother recap is from Episode 12, airing on Wednesday, September 2. It’s an important episode as we all find out who won the Power of Veto, and if they used it to save someone from the block.
The last episode revealed that Enzo Palumbo had won the HOH Competition. As the new Head of Household, he decided to nominate Kaysar Ridha and Kevin Campbell for eviction.
The nominations didn’t exactly live up to the billing that Enzo had predicted, as he said he was going to end up covered in blood this week.
But who would be in the most danger of following Janelle Pierzina out the door?
Previously on Big Brother All-Stars
Footage showing Enzo discussing the biggest targets in the house was given to viewers – right before he said that if he has to come up with a replacement nominee that everyone should be watching their backs.
Jumping into the episode, Enzo spoke from the Diary Room first, saying that Kaysar was a target because he had never spoken game with Enzo. It was a quick departure from What Enzo said he was going to do this week.
Kaysar was next up in the DR and he was not surprised about his nomination. Then, Kevin said that he was completely blindsided and he wanted to know what was going on.
Enzo pulled Kevin aside after the Nomination Ceremony and told him that he was just a pawn this week. Enzo also promised him that he is good this week, which drew some eye rolls from Kevin in a later DR session.

Christmas Abbott and Nicole Franzel were then acting like they felt bad that Kevin was nominated.
When Kaysar was shown going to Enzo, the HOH said he didn’t want to ruffle any feathers. What? That’s not what Enzo told everyone who watches the show…

David Alexander tries to save his game
Ian Terry was also shown going to chat with Enzo after the new HOH had asked people to do that at the Nomination Ceremony. The editing made it seem like Enzo was ready to target Ian as soon as he possibly could.
Mornings with Memphis
In the nomination chairs, Memphis Garrett invited Kaysar out for a mock talk show. Kaysar was asked to guess about headlines in the world. He guessed that the U.S. travel ban was still on, that Janelle Pierzina had entered the presidential race, and that Donald Trump was watching the live feeds.
Veto Competition time
At the Veto Meeting, Enzo randomly picked Tyler, Kaysar randomly selected Bayleigh Dayton, and Kevin asked David to play. The six people would play for the Power of Veto a bit later in the episode.
When Kaysar had a minute to sit down with Bayleigh, he asked her about what her plans were going to be, but she tried to sidestep every question. In a DR session, she said she would not use the POV to save Kaysar.
Memphis hosted the Veto Competition, which required the houseguests to hold on to ropes in the air as they were pulled in various directions. It was basically an endurance challenge for the six players.

Flexibility was key to this competition. The older guys — Kaysar and Enzo — were the first ones to drop.
Tyler was the next one out, followed shortly by Bayleigh. That left just David and Kevin battling it out.
David fell and Kevin won the Power of Veto.
Veto Ceremony time
Ahead of the Veto Ceremony, Christmas volunteered to go up on the block. She spoke in a DR session about how confident she was about Kaysar going home.
Daniele seemed to out her alliance with Bayleigh and Da’Vonne Rogers (Slick Six) by talking about it with Nicole in the room. It was then time for Enzo and Tyler to start talking about possibly backdooring Dani.
At the Veto Ceremony, Enzo put Christmas on the block next to Kaysar (after Kevin took himself off the block). Those are the two people who will be on the block for eviction night.
That brings an end to the Big Brother Season 22, Episode 12 recap.
