Big Brother 22 Cast Reveal: Meet Your All-Stars

  • Group 1:
  • Nicole Franzel
  • Daniele Briones (Donato)
  • Da’Vonne Rogers
  • Christmas Abbott

Julie Chen reveals a new comp twist for the night. These four HGs will face off in the first comp of the season where the first two to complete their discovery of an answer hidden in the house will move on to an HOH comp later tonight. The pressure is on!

This group has just FOUR minutes to complete the challenge and it’s a big wobbly ball maze puzzle. Christmas finishes it first and second is… no one. Dani, Nicole F., and Da’Vonne failed to complete the challenge so only Christmas moves on to tonight’s HOH comp. So now they have to go hide while the next group of four arrives.

  • Group 2:
  • Tyler Crispen
  • Ian Terry
  • Kevin Campbell
  • Enzo Palumbo

Enzo is the first to the wobbly boards, but Ian is the first to finish. Who will join him? Kevin! Ian and Kevin will go up against Christmas and the winners from the next two groups.

  • Group 3:
  • Janelle Pierzina
  • Bayleigh Dayton
  • Nicole Anthony
  • Keesha Smith

And they’re off! Janelle is the first to the wobble board, but she doesn’t complete the challenge. Only Nicole A. beats the buzzer and she moves on alone in this group to the HOH comp coming up. One last group to go…

  • Group 4:
  • Kaysar Ridha
  • Cody Calafiore
  • Memphis Garrett
  • David Alexander

It’s comp time! Memphis is the first to complete it and Cody follows right behind him So that’s 2x the guys versus ladies in the HOH comp tonight.

HOH comp players: Christmas, Ian, Kevin, Nicole A., Memphis, and Cody.

HOH Comp: Star Steppin

HGs must race across a proverbial mine field of steps with some of them springloaded and wobbly. Imagine the perfect opportunity to break your ankle, if you will. Oh, and here comes Christmas…

  • Memphis: 1m12s
  • Cody: 22s
  • Christmas: times out
  • Kevin: times out
  • Nicole A.: times out
  • Ian: times out

Cody wins HOH! Congrats to Cody. Now get ready for a twist coming up…

Twist Time

HGs who lost in the HOH comp had to pick an envelope. Julie reveals they will either have a cash prize or a Have-Not punishment for the week.

  • Ian: HN
  • Christmas: $5K cash
  • Memphis: HN
  • Nicole A: HN
  • Kevin: HN

The HNs can’t access their new punishment room yet but soon they will. On the flip side, there’s a new twist, “Safety Suite,” and we’ll learn more about that one Sunday’s episode. Get ready!

Sunday night will deliver the second episode of the season starting at 10/9c “but first,” tonight around 10:30 PM PT the Live Feeds start! Grab your Free Trial now and be ready to watch!
