There has been a shake-up in the Big Brother house.

Claire won the Coin of Destiny becoming the new HoH. Since she is working with Tiffany though, Claire decided not to change the nominations.

Sarah Beth, Kyland and Xavier remain on the chopping block.

As part of winning the Golden Power of Veto, Hannah got to pick three houseguests to come see a movie with her. She picked the nominees.

“You already provide your own entertainment. Big D, please don’t be mad,” laughed Hannah as she spoke to a disappointed Derek Frazier.

“Big D is about to tear me apart,” Hannah joked to Kyland as she exited the bedroom and saw him in the front room relaxing.

“I won the Golden Power of Veto! I actually won something! Now, I have the power to send Sarah Beth out the door and I am so excited about it! Plus, I can use this to take Xavier off the block and get myself further in this game. It is getting down to six people and it is all going according to plan. I get to watch a movie!” said an excited Hannah to the cameras in the bathroom.

Hannah confirmed to Tiffany that she beat Sarah Beth by 23 seconds in the veto competition.

“You and me are sending her (Sarah Beth) to jury,” said Hannah to Tiffany.

Big Brother 23 Spoilers: Who Won The Veto, And Will It Be Used In Week 8?

CinemaBlend 30 August, 2021 - 04:10am

Derek Xiao's eviction provided a big advantage for The Cookout in maintaining their goal to make Big Brother's Final 6, and Tiffany Mitchell's Head of Household win only made it more assured. Tiffany's nomination plans for Week 8 were evident well before she ever won, and it would seem a bulk of the house is still on board with her plan. Of course, there was a hitch in that plan , as the Coin of Destiny was used, and Tiffany's HOH was effectively usurped by the winner.

Claire Rehfuss won the Coin of Destiny, but thanks to Tiffany's loyalty, Claire has decided to keep the nominations the same, with Kyland Young, Sarah Beth Steagall, and Xavier Prather as the third nominee as part of last week's punishment. The Cookout was lucky that Claire stayed loyal to Tiffany's wishes, but there's still a chance for plans to go awry with the veto. With that being said, here's who won the veto and what the plans are for it in the coming week.

For the first time since Big Brother Season 23 started, Hannah Chaddha has won a competition in earning the Power of Veto for The Cookout, which prevented the nightmare scenario of Sarah Beth Steagall winning and taking herself off the block. Hannah apparently only beat Sarah Beth by less than 30 seconds, so there was almost a reality where The Cookout was at risk of losing one of their own. Of course, it didn't happen, and Hannah even got an additional prize by way of the chance to watch a movie with a couple of Houseguests.

Hannah Chaddha has the power of veto and could use it on fellow alliance members Xavier Prather and Kyland Young. At the moment, she's suggested using the veto on Xavier, which would remove the third nominee and give The Cookout an additional person to vote between Kyland and Sarah Beth Steagall. It's a move that would make Alyssa Lopez happy as well, and could keep a target off Hannah's back if Alyssa happens to win the next Head of Household. Overall, not a bad game move, and one that will do little to impact the vote either way.

Sarah Beth Steagall has a snowball's chance in hell of surviving eviction this week, but could this move expose The Cookout to the remaining Big Brother Houseguests outside the alliance? Claire Rehfuss joked with Derek Xiao prior to his eviction about the possibility of an all-Black player alliance, but the two laughed it off. Alyssa Lopez openly mentioned a couple of days ago that the house was almost completely rid of "the White players," which could be an indication she thinks something is up to.

The truth of the matter is, I'm not sure it would matter one way or another if Claire or Alyssa did figure it out. Claire was informed by Big Brother producers after her Coin of Destiny win that she can play in the Head of Household, but she must throw the competition, since she cannot actually win back-to-back Head of Household competitions. This means that Alyssa is the only non-Cookout member that can win HOH in Week 9, and if she doesn't, there's a good chance she could see the block and go home.

At this stage, it would seem keeping The Cookout secret is more or less a formality than anything else. Sure, there is a small chance Alyssa Lopez and Claire Rehfuss could win the Head of Household or save themselves with a veto win, but the odds that both will do that over the next two weeks are incredibly slim. The Cookout has the numbers to snipe both of them systematically and then see their goal of making the Final 6 down to the end. It's pretty damn impressive given their alliance members have only had control of the house for half the game, and they will surely be remembered one of the more historic alliances in Big Brother history.

Big Brother airs on CBS Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 8:00 p.m. ET. Continue to stick with CinemaBlend for more on Season 23, such as our recent conversation with Derek Xiao about all his regrets in the game to that point.

‘Big Brother 23’ episode 23 recap: Who did Tiffany Mitchell nominate for eviction? [UPDATING LIVE BLOG]

Gold Derby 30 August, 2021 - 04:10am

When we last checked in with the “Big Brother” Season 23 houseguests, Tiffany Mitchell had just claimed victory in the Head of Household competition. Her win meant that the Cookout alliance would likely be safe for another week … that is, unless the High Roller’s Room shook up her game. So who did Tiffany nominate for eviction, and who won the all-important Coin of Destiny competition?

Below, read our minute-by-minute “Big Brother” recap of Season 23, Episode 23 to find out what happened Sunday, August 29 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT. Then be sure to sound off in the comments section about your favorite “BB23” houseguests on CBS’s reality TV show, who annoys you the most and who you think will ultimately join the “Big Brother” winners list and win the $750,000 grand prize. The remaining players are: Alyssa Lopez, Azah Awasum, Claire Rehfuss, Derek Frazier, Hannah Chaddha, Kyland Young, Sarah Beth Steagall, Tiffany Mitchell and Xavier Prather.

8:00 p.m. – “Previously on ‘Big Brother’!” In the 22nd episode, America’s favorite player, Derek Xiao, failed to sway enough votes to keep himself in the game. He was evicted by a 5-2 vote over Claire, with only Kyland and Hannah voting to keep him. Speaking of Hannah, Derek X. told Julie Chen Moonves that there might be a romantic future between the two of them. “Expect the unexpected,” he teased. The episode ended with Tiffany becoming the second female (after Sarah Beth) to become HOH. How will tonight’s episode play out?

8:03 p.m. – We were all stunned when Tiffany didn’t vote to evict Derek X. on Thursday, but she explained tonight that she wasn’t willing to risk The Cookout by trying any harder to keep him. And with her new win, she has secured herself safety and seemingly safety for Claire, Azah and Hannah who all celebrated with her privately in the pantry. Kyland was not as celebratory, but more because he felt guilty about Derek’s eviction. That being said, while he was crying on Derek F.’s shoulder about it he also doesn’t regret that he had to go.

8:05 p.m. – Sarah Beth also had tears from the nerves of Tiffany’s HOH win, but more because Derek X.’s “hurtful” comments prior to eviction where he insinuated that SB is a huge threat in the house and playing a “Nicole F.” game. That she formed a new alliance, called The Monarchy, with Alyssa, Xavier and Kyland gave her a little more assurance that she could be safe this week anyway.

8:09 p.m. – Based on their original plan to have Cookout members pair off, Tiffany approached Kyland to ask who should go on the block this week and he instantly replied SB and himself, as she hoped. It must have been comforting to Tiffany to know that Kyland would be a willing pawn, but she cooly played it off by asking him again if he’s sure and whether she should do SB and Alyssa instead.

8:12 p.m. – Joining the emotional parade, Hannah checked in with Tiffany about the guilt over sending Derek X. home. It gave Tiffany a chance to assure her that he’ll forgive her and that the pact they made was to choose The Cookout over every other personal relationship in the house. She also reminded her that Xavier, Kyland and herself will also go through the same guilt when they sent Alyssa, SB and Claire home, respectively.

8:15 p.m. – Because he’s one of the people she thinks has the money to win the Coin of Destiny challenge, Tiffany checked in with Derek F. to make sure he knows that she wants him to play and win it. The two of them have had a tough time seeing eye to eye all season and so the conversation made Derek think she might be considering putting him up. Next, she chatted with SB who told her that she could possibly be playing and would play to win. It doesn’t sound like SB will have enough money to play, but she wanted to keep Tiffany on her toes in the hopes that the threat would make her second guess putting her and Kyland up. Tiffany took the opportunity to more or less reprimand SB for sending Derek X. home, saying that the move “cut off my legs” because Derek X. was the only male in the house fighting for Tiffany’s spot. SB was surprised at Tiffany’s reaction while also privately admitting that she did know that Derek leaving would be a blow to Tiffany’s strength in the house.

8:23 p.m. – After sharing her new HOH room with everyone, Tiffany entered a follow-up chat with SB where SB made arguments to get her look at other people as nominee options. She exposed Alyssa for telling SB about Tiffany’s strong (negative) reaction to SB winning last week. Tiffany called the throwing of Alyssa under the bus as “very convincing” and that she might consider following that path instead.

8:30 p.m. – At the nomination ceremony, Tiffany revealed the names of her nominees: Kyland and Sarah Beth. Those two joined Xavier, who was an automatic third nominee based on the results of the prior week’s POV comp. Tiffany explained her decision away by calling them out as a powerful duo and to put her own personal game first. Privately, she said that she couldn’t be swayed from finally taking a shot at SB in order to target Alyssa instead.

8:34 p.m. – In their third meeting of the episode, Tiffany told SB that Kyland is her actual target. It was an active lie aimed at getting SB to not fight as hard for the Coin of Destiny or, eventually, the POV if it comes to that. SB received the bad news pretty well, and told Tiffany that she appreciates her being up front about the decision to put them up and her reasons.

8:36 p.m. – Prior to competing for the Coin of Destiny in the final High Rollers comp, Tiffany announced that the winner of the comp would earn the chance to dethrone her as HOH in anonymous fashion and replace her two nominees with two of their own. She also clarified that she would be safe from being one of those nominees and that Xavier’s punishment nomination must remain as well.

8:42 p.m. – First to enter the High Rollers room today was Azah, who earned an additional 50 BB and 50 more in her card, amounting to only 200 BB so should didn’t have enough to play. The amount Xavier and Alyssa earned from the vote and the cards didn’t allow them to play either. Prior to going in, Hannah told Tiffany that they should try to get Claire as the only one to play Coin of Destiny so that she takes over for Tiffany and will be ineligible next week, and thus available to be nominated. Hannah and Tiffany met with Claire who immediately said she plans to play. Hannah went into the room and had a total of 300 BB, enough to play the 250 game, but declined the chance to play. Xavier’s 200 BB total wasn’t enough and neither was Tiffany’s 225. SB had a slim chance of earning enough money, but the 150 BB she added to her total today wasn’t enough. Tiffany’s attempt to stop Derek F. from playing in the comp by saying he needs to be able to play HOH next week didn’t work because he wasn’t going to let his 425 BB go to waste and because he wanted to show that he tried to win.

8:47 p.m. – In the Coin of Destiny game, Derek had to roll oversized coins down a ramp into one of three slots in an attempt to get the most in within 2 minutes. But while he did want to play, Derek did not want to actually win, showing that he does in fact have faith in Tiffany and the plan to keep him available to play in HOH next week. As the last to enter and a close ally of Tiffany’s, Claire wanted to play as well in order to protect Tiffany’s reign from anyone else’s meddling. Unlike Derek, she was playing to win, but as far as we saw in her first attempts, she couldn’t get more than one coin in.

8:53 p.m. – Finally, just before her time ran out Claire was able to get two more in, for a total of three. Good thing (for The Cookout) that Derek decided to really throw it by only making one! Because the comp would result in a secret HOH, the results of the comp and who played in it couldn’t be revealed. Instead, the houseguests were informed that there was a winner and that she’d have to flip the Coin of Destiny to determine if she’d be overthrown.

8:56 p.m. – The coin flip determined that Tiffany was dethroned, and only Claire knew that it placed her in the chair. Immediately, SB and Kyland’s faces disappeared from the nomination screen to be replaced instantly by Claire’s nominees. Claire’s nominees appeared: Kyland and Sarah Beth. With that, the High Rollers Room closed and the nominees for the week, prior to POV, were locked. To SB, that meant that either her or Kyland would be going home this week.

'Big Brother 23' Week 8 Spoilers: Who Won the Power of Veto, and Will They Use It?

After losing one of her closest allies outside The Cookout, Tiffany Mitchell became the following Head of Household. However, the Coin of Destiny winner threatened her plans as the holder could anonymously overthrow her nominations, putting up whichever two houseguests they wanted next to the third nominee, Xavier Prather. Who won the Power of Veto, and how does it affect Tiffany’s target?

Even though Tiffany Mitchell believed keeping Derek Xiao served her game the best, her allegiance lay with the Cookout, who determined the biggest physical competitor remaining threatening their games the most.

After losing a close ally, she regained control of her game by winning Head of Household.

However, the remaining power left in the High Rollers Room, Coin of Destiny, which allowed the holder to overthrow Tiffany’s nominations anonymously, jeopardized the Cookout’s standings.

Following the HOH competition, the houseguests randomly chose envelopes that contained $50 – $100 BB Bucks to help boost their account for the final power.

Tiffany has wanted to target Sarah Beth Steagall for the past two weeks, but her close ally, and Cookout member, Kyland Young, won HOH, followed by SB the following week.

Therefore, Tiffany couldn’t wait to take her shot, nominating Sarah Beth alongside Kyland with Xavier Prather as the third nominee due to a punishment he accepted in exchange for the Power of Veto last week.

Although Hannah Chaddha, Derek “Big D” Frazier, and Claire Rehfuss had the money for the final power, the latter is seemingly the only one who played. She ultimately chose to keep her allies’ nominations the same.

Even so, Tiffany had to give up the HOH room and wasn’t automatically eligible to participate in the POV. However, she can compete in next week’s HOH competition.

The three nominees and randomly selected players, Alyssa Lopez, Claire, and Hannah, faced off for the POV, with the latter pulling out the win. With the medallion still around her neck, the youngest houseguest began detailing her plan for the end, describing how she planned to cater to everyone in the Cookout to ensure they would take her to the final two.

She explained she knows Xavier cares about loyalty, so she wants to take him off the block. Additionally, she doesn’t feel comfortable with two Cookout members available for eviction and ineligible to vote.

However, Kyland prefers Hannah to use the POV on him, hoping the move would boost his “resume.” She also talked to Claire about her Veto plans, explaining she wanted to use the gesture to put the guys against each other and “fracture” their working relationship. Therefore, Hannah will likely use the POV on Xavier.

Tiffany, Claire, and Hannah, who were Derek X.’s close allies, swept this week’s competitions to all but guarantee Sarah Beth’s eviction. Big Brother 23 airs Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 8/7 Central on CBS.

'Big Brother': Da'Vonne Rogers Thinks Her 'Paranoia' Would've 'Ruined' The Cookout

Showbiz Cheat Sheet 29 August, 2021 - 04:33pm

During the first week of the competition, Derek “Big D” Frazier, Tiffany Mitchell, Azah Awasum, and Xavier Prather agreed they had the same goal: to see a Black person win for the first time in the history of the original franchise.

They also noted they wanted to finish what Da’Vonne Rogers started last season. The group later included Hannah Chaddha and Kyland Young, calling themselves The Cookout “for the culture.”

Initially, their plan only included not gathering in the same room to avoid detection. Wanting to advance the group as far as she could, Tiffany Mitchell came up with an idea to pair up with someone outside of the Cookout so if anyone nominated one of them; they would go up alongside their “person.”

The alliance would then control the votes and save their members. It has worked so far as no one has fully caught on to the group yet.

Last year, the three-time competitor often spoke about the Black Lives Matter movement and aligned with Bayleigh Dayton, creating Black Girl Magic.

She also attempted to advance the other Black players in the competition, including David Alexander and Kevin Campbell, as she refused to vote either out, even when it benefited her game.

However, they had a hard time getting on the same page due to mistrust. Following Bayleigh’s eviction, the three attempted to work together and flip to save Ian Terry.

But, they didn’t know another houseguest they counted on, Nicole Franzel, had more loyalty to the dominating alliance, The Committee. Ultimately, they were picked off as they didn’t have the numbers.

Still, Da’Vonne used her exit speeches to highlight the lack of Black players and winners, inspiring The Cookout.

Replying to a fan who thought she and Tiffany would’ve performed well in Big Brother 23 together, Da’Vonne claimed she’s not the best BB player and is happy the Cookout member is “on her season.”

Additionally, reigning America’s Favorite Player admitted, “my paranoia would’ve ruined everything.” After naming Tiffany, Hannah, and Azah as her top houseguests, she shaded another Cookout member in another tweet.

A user tweeted her a transcript of a conversation of Xavier and Hannah discussing which “BB legend” could return to host a competition. When Hannah suggested Da’Vonne, he repeated “BB legend,” seemingly implying she isn’t one. The three-time competitor quote tweeted it, noting, “I’ve been holding my peace about this man and his dry lips, but this is strike two.”

She later congratulated the alliance for making it to Week 8, tweeting a clip of the entire group meeting for the first time of the season. The fan-favorite said her “heart is full” as well as “this is what I’ve wanted and waited for” before encouraging the group to “get this win.”

Responding to backlash for her remark, she insisted she’s “still rooting for him, for the cause.” Big Brother 23 airs Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 8/7 Central on CBS.
