With this season of Big Brother getting its first female HoH, things have started to stir in the house! As the HoH, Sarah Beth set her eyes on Derek X, Alyssa and Xavier as her targets, determined to eliminate them. However, due to the Chopping Block Roulette that would be played this week and along with veto, she had to choose her nominations carefully. She ultimately nominated Claire and Derek F, both of which were pawns. For her, the goal was to get Derek X out of the game.

With Sarah Beth Steagall at the helm of power this week, she has her eyes set on her targets. However, due to the High Rollers Room, she's had to play her game most unexpectedly. But, it might just work out in her favor, by the looks of it.

Seeing that most people didn't have enough money to play, save for Derek X, who wanted to save his money for next week, Alyssa won the game and secured her safety for the week. But as per the game's rules, a random player was selected to go up for elimination. While Alyssa took Derek F off the block, she ended up putting Xavier in his place, much to her dismay. Now, it all boils down to who wins veto, seeing that Sarah Beth's plan is to backdoor Derek X. Should he go up against Xavier, there is a good chance he will get eliminated, as Xavier has the cookout looking out for him.

Fans seem to dread what might happen next week. "My hands are sweating worrying about this mans safety #bb23 #bigbrother23 #BigBrother" tweeted a fan. "Fuck the whole house for targeting DX. And DX for being so trusting and not socializing/talking enough with the hoh #BB23" added another. "If Derek X leaves this week, I will NOT emotionally recover. Fix this, @CBSBigBrother. FIX IT. #bb23" tweeted a fan. "I really need Derek X to make the right choices this week because right now he's the only thing keeping me from bailing on this season. #BigBrother" said a fan. 








While Derek X has won the hearts of fans, many viewers want him on the show seeing that he is possibly one of the only people in the house who has managed to piece together the possibility of a secret alliance, which is the cookout. Should he survive this elimination, it would be interesting to see how the situation would play out, especially since he considers Hannah a close ally. Still, her first loyalty lies with the alliance.

"Really hope DX stays, he's the only one who's slowly piecing together the existence of the cookout…. And if he does shits gonna get pretty interesting," tweeted a fan. "Going into this season, I really had a good feeling of DX. Not playing the high roller's comp is probably gonna cost him 750k. With that being said, we really need to appreciate the cookout, as it is probably one of the strongest alliances we've seen in big brother #BB23," tweeted a fan. 

"Derek X's path on the season was enjoyable to watch. From someone nearly a victim of one of the worst Big Brother players we've ever seen to becoming as essential of a player to alliances as anyone non-Cookout could be this season, he should consider this season a success," added a fan.
