'Big Brother' Season 22: Cody Calafiore wins title and $500K prize while Enzo Palumbo finishes as runner-up
'Big Brother' Season 22 came to an end with Cody Calafiore winning the competition and Enzo Palumbo being crowned as the runner-up. The season finale came to a shocking end when Cody decided to take Enzo to the finals instead of Nicole Franzel. Cody was ready to take on the game ever since he stepped into the house.
He was the first one to win the Head of Household competition and showed the people that he is in it for some serious business. He managed to win many other competitions while making sure he continued to be in a good relationship with others. However, the most important part of the finale was convincing the jury that he deserved to win.
The jury had some burning questions prepared for both of them, and it was upon them to convince them with their answers. During the questions, Cody explained he was trying to play the game differently this time because he did not want to repeat the mistakes he had made before.
He admitted his game had evolved and looked into his past season to make sure he did things that he never did in the first season. He managed to understand what would be the best position for him to target others while ensuring he was safe. Cody also thought coming to the game with more maturity helped him make decisions better. He added it helped to target people he knew would be a threat to him in the future.
At the same time, Cody took ownership of taking out some of the strong players in the house to make sure he could come to the finals. He further added that one of the reasons for him to throw Ian Terry out of the game was because he knew a beast was about to be unleashed by him.
Cody also highlighted he chose to take Enzo in the finale instead of Nicole Franzel because he thought it would be best for his game. After hearing Cody mention all these things and delivering a speech that seemed impressive, the jury finally crowned him as the new winner taking home the $500,000 prize.
The season finale of 'Big Brother' Season 22 aired on October 28 at 9 pm ET on CBS.
