Big Brother 16 introduced the world to Cody Calafiore.

Cody finished second place to Derrick Levassuer that season and was invited back to play on Big Brother: All-Stars 2 (BB22).

Cody almost made Big Brother look too easy in his second attempt. He was part of a strong alliance and had several deals that helped him to the end.

The BB22 jury unanimously voted for Cody to become the Big Brother 22 winner.

The final days of the season were a bit rocky, though. Cody made it to finale night with two people he had promised loyalty to.

Cody was working closely with Enzo Palumbo, but he was also close with Nicole Franzel. Cody and Nicole appeared on BB16 together and had a friendship in the real world.

But when Cody chose to take Enzo to the end over Nicole, it gutted the Big Brother 18 winner.

Sharon Tharp conducted a new interview with Cody where he talked about Big Brother, The Challenge, and Nicole.

Cody noted when the season was over, Nicole said she needed time to get over what had happened. He said he understood that.

“There was Enzo and Nicole. I couldn’t tell you who I was closer with on that season. I loved them both equally,” Cody told Sharon.

He added that he didn’t think Nicole would ever cut him.

Later, Cody notes that they still haven’t talked yet, and he mentions Nicole talking about him on a recent podcast.

Below is a clip from the interview where Cody talks about Nicole.
