Big Brother spoilers coming from the live feeds in the overnight hours reveal who the new Head of Household is going to nominate for eviction.
An intense Endurance Challenge helped determine who would become the new HOH, and it certainly showed which houseguests wanted to emerge with the power this week.
After close to 90 minutes perched on a wall in the backyard, Derek Xiao was named the endurance champion. He beat out Xavier Prather and Alyssa Lopez, who were the rest of the final three people left in the competition.
By becoming the Week 5 HOH, Derek X also guarantees that he will make it to at least the BB23 jury, joining Claire Rehfuss as the only two people who already have safety for the week.
Who is Derek Xiao nominating for eviction?
The plan from Tiffany Mitchell worked. She succeeded at convincing other people in the house that Sarah Beth Steagall was going to become a threat that they needed to get out of the BB23 house right away. Tiffany was very vocal to Derek about Sarah Beth going after Hannah Chaddha, and Derek X is not going to allow Hannah to become a target.
Derek X is now going to have no problem nominating Sarah Beth and Britini D’Angelo for eviction on August 6. Those are his two pawns in an effort to backdoor Christian Birkenberger. Derek X is also confident that Christian wouldn’t use the Power of Veto if he wins it, as it would mean Alyssa Lopez becomes the replacement nominee.
A busy weekend in the Big Brother house
To summarize, Derek Xiao plans to nominate Sarah Beth Steagall and Britini D’Angelo for eviction. He wants to backdoor Christian Birkenberger and he plans to let Britini know that she is a pawn. If Christian wins the POV, Sarah Beth is going to be the BB23 cast member meeting with Julie Chen Moonves next.
Unless something big changes things on Friday, those are going to be the nominees and targets. The nominees and HOH will then be joined by three additional people to play in the Veto Competition on August 7 (Saturday). If Sarah Beth wants to make sure she survives the week, she needs to win the Power of Veto. Everything else is out of her hands.
