It was a day of studying for the Big Brother 23 Final 4 as they all went over the days and events for the season in preparation for the final Power of Veto comp of the season. They have been speculating that the Power of Veto would take place at some point on Friday inside the Big Brother house and they wanted to make sure they were ready.
8:30 AM BBT – Xavier is up studying, everyone else is sleeping.
10:15 AM BBT – HGs are waking up.
11:25 AM BBT – Derek and Azah are talking about a talk he had with Xavier and how it made him realize that he can’t take Kyland to F3 over Azah.
11:40 AM BBT – Azah is telling Derek about how she told Kyland before the first eviction that she was going to vote out Tiffany. He told her that if she wanted to tell Tiffany that it’s all his idea, she can. Azah decided to tell Tiffany the truth that this was her decision and it was game related. Tiffany told Kyland this and Kyland was upset and that’s why he used the Veto on Xavier during her HOH.
11:41 AM BBT – Xavier comes in to tell Azah and Derek that breakfast is done and Derek tells Xavier that he told Azah that he was going to stick to the F3 that they (Azah, Derek, and Xavier) have.
11:46 AM BBT – Xavier tells Kyland that Azah probably feels like she is on an island now that she knows that Derek has F2 deals with Xavier and Kyland.
11:48 AM BBT – Derek tells Xavier that he had to tell Azah (about sticking to their F3 with her). Derek tells him that he needs to have a clear conscious before the Veto. Xavier is concerned about what’s going to happen if Kyland wins and Azah tells Kyland that Derek was going to cut him?
11:51 AM BBT – Xavier tells Derek that Kyland will think that Derek is just trying to play it up to Azah. Xavier tells him that he (D) has to stop talking so much game.
12:00 PM BBT – Not much going on inside the house right now. Azah and Xavier are in the kitchen and Derek is sleeping.
1:30 PM BBT – Xavier is in the HOH studying alone while Kyland is in the HN room re-reading his HOH letter and looking at his pictures.
2:25 PM BBT – Xavier and Derek are trying to remember how to play Spades (they got a deck of cards from somewhere). They also talk about Rummy and other card game options.
2:53 PM BBT – Derek goes up to the HN room to try and talk to Kyland and clear the air with him. Derek talks about how everyone’s games are in each other’s hands at this point and he was just trying to be honest with Azah.
Could Azah find herself in the F3 on Big Brother? It all comes down to who wins the final Power of Veto for Big Brother 23. The houseguests are expecting the Veto to happen at some point today, but we don’t know if that’s been confirmed or if they are just expecting it because everything happened a day early this week. Either way, we will have spoilers for you as soon as it happens.

Tonight On Big Brother 23: Special Schedule – HOH & Nominations
Big Brother 23 Episode 32 Recap: Xavier Makes Final 3
17 September, 2021 - 08:52pm
First up, let's talk about the second eviction of the double-eviction night. Azah won the HOH and promptly explained to Hannah that she was putting her on the block alongside Xavier, and that it was going to be easy to get Xavier out of the house. When Hannah started asking her about potential veto plays, Azah was confident that if Xavier came off the block, she'd just put Kyland up and all would be well.
All of this stems from Azah thinking she has a tight bond with the guys, one that's stronger than her relationship with Hannah. But it's a disastrous misreading of what's actually going on in the house. So rather than seeing Xavier or Kyland go home, Azah ends up sitting on the sidelines as Xavier and Kyland control the two votes for eviction and unanimously send Hannah to the jury house, securing their final 3 deal with Big D.
Moving on to some more fallout, we get some news that was, at least to me, rather surprising: Xavier has a final 2 deal with Big D, and he's more loyal to that than the one with Kyland. I honestly don't remember this being brought up at all during the season, so their chat about the veto and Big D being worried about their final 2 deal was shocking to me. To be fair, I do think Xavier will win no matter who he's sitting next to. I think he can beat any of the other three players left, and that those players should be doing everything they can to send Xavier to the jury house if they want a chance at winning this whole thing.
That brings us to the biggest chunk of the episode, which is the veto competition. Because there's only so much footage to use for this episode, this veto takes up a lot of the episode's runtime. It's incredibly repetitive watching each of the players go through the same set of CSI: Vegas-inspired evidence, trying to put all the clues together in the fastest time. It's a fun competition, just a little lengthy. Anyway, after Big D and Kyland clock in with pretty similar times, Xavier comes in and absolutely destroys them. Like I said a few episodes ago, Xavier has played this season perfectly. He sat back, made friends, threw competitions, and now when it matters he's beasting out.
As far as the rest of the game goes, this win all but assures that Xavier is going to win this whole thing. He's guaranteed final 3, and I wouldn't be surprised if he wins the final HOH competition as well. Still, there's more game to play, and Xavier has nominations to make.
He sits down with everyone to chat about the nominations, and what he's starting to think about is the possibility of sending Kyland out of the house. He talks with Big D about it, and Big D is conflicted because of the deal they have. Meanwhile, Azah is trying to get a sense of things, asking Xavier if he has a final 2 with Kyland. He says no, and when Azah asks if he'd tell her the truth if he did, he says "maybe." She's just a few steps behind, and it might cost her.
At the nomination ceremony, Xavier puts Azah and Kyland on the block. But as Xavier says, the nominations only mean so much, because whoever wins the veto this coming week is the one who holds all the power. So now we wait, and let the anticipation build.

HANNAH CHADDHA: He was basically saying that he's okay with going home. We know where his stuff is located in the house, so we can pack that up for him. It's been a pleasure knowing all of us! He was essentially acting like he was going home, but the fact that he wasn't campaigning after Kyland took X off the block told me everything that I needed to know. It let me know that Derek F. is very comfortable in the house and did not mind being on the block in the final five. That just kind of solidified the possibility of the guys working together. I don't think Ky and X were ever going to keep me, especially not Ky. So I just wish that Derek F. would have been a little more candid with me. Like, 'I'm so sorry, but this is what we have to do' instead of acting like he was going home when he knew that he wasn't.
I'm not angry with Azah at all. I don't have any bitterness toward the four people who are left in that house. I don't believe that Azah using her HOH as an opportunity to send me home was the smartest thing for her game. I think that she should have taken a shot at Kyland or Xavier because I don't think she's going to be brought to the final two by any of those guys. It wasn't the most rational and prudent game move. But I can't be mad at her for it. I just think that you know, she's going to follow me real soon.
Maybe Tiffany deciding to win that second HOH comp made it easier for people to evict her, but I think their plan was always to evict her at number six. Tiffany is a strong competitor. She's very intelligent. She was kind of the lead strategist of the Cookout. I'm going to give her that credit and that accolade because she deserves it. She came up with the master plan and truth be told, I don't think anyone wanted to sit next to her in the final two. So I think Tiffany was always supposed to go first and then me and then that would leave the guys in the final three. I think they used her second HOH as kind of a crutch to justify that.
I'm not sure if we had too many conversations surrounding race and other forms of social inequality in the house. I definitely think that the other houseguests knew that there was something that they were missing, but maybe they didn't have the tools or the words to express what that was. We did kind of use that to our advantage because maybe they assumed that the six of us were working together, but if they couldn't express that explicitly to each other, then there was really nothing they could do. The Cookout tried not to draw attention to ourselves and what bonds us, which is our Blackness. It is something that I'm very proud of, but again, we went out of our way to kind of keep the scent off of us. Like for example, whenever I would walk into a room, if there were more than two Cookout members in that room, I would leave. Toward the end, that was a little harder to avoid. But we did try to be conscientious about drawing too much attention to ourselves.
In order for Azah to win this game, she would have to win out her way to the final two. If she's able to do that, then mad props to her. But Kyland, X, and even big D are all very fierce competitors. So I don't really see that happening for Azah. I believe that Azah has a final three with Xavier and big D, but I do believe that Kyland Xavier and big D are more committed to each other than they are to her. So I suspect that Azah is going to follow me to the jury pretty soon.
