When we left the house - Enzo/Cody/Nicole(who were all finalists last time they played finishing 3rd/2nd/1st respectively) were reminiscing about this season. NOW we get into the final HOH! Let's go to the house.

We review the path of each of the three finalists and how they got there. First is Enzo(who hasn't seen the block all season) then Cody(who won 7 comps and also never saw the block), then Nicole(who let her Committee allies do all her dirty work for her and the Triple Eviction)

We also see the first 5(Keesha/Nicole A/Janelle/Kaysar/Bayleigh) and their thoughts on the final 3 and what the jury will do. They talk about Enzo, Cody and then Nicole. They feel Cody has the best game, but Enzo making it to Final Three WITHOUT being in The Committee. Enzo is the most likeable. And Nicole making it through the Triple Eviction was respectable.

We head to the backyard and our final three are zombies. Well, some people online might think they are based on gameplay, but our final three have been made up as zombies.

For those who do not know - this is a three part HOH. The winners of Part I and II compete in the final Part III. The final HOH will determine who he or she takes to the finale.


The three finalists will hang on a disk and rope combination. They will be swung around(and tossed into a huge crescent moon and haunted house to knock them off. They also get sprayed with "witches brew" from the cauldron. The finalists also get rained out and soaked through). The last zombie standing will automatically go into the finals.

Enzo is OUT first

Cody is OUT next.

Nicole WINS PART I. She is in Part III. Enzo/Cody face off in Part II.

Who win the 2nd part of the HOH? Who will be the final HOH? Who will they take to the final vote? And who will win the $500,000 and be crowned the winner of BB All Stars(BB 22) Find out on the season finale!

Disney+: season 1 available
Host: Yvette Nicole Brown with CLIVE (Rhys Darby)
Official WebsiteFacebook

Episode 17 features Emi, a 10-year-old whose favorite animal is worms. She's a tap dancer, which could have come in handy on the episode prior.

(C-Note: a propos of nothing, but YNB's shirt is a glittery Disney+ logo).

SILLY WARM UP ROUND: Joe helps restaurants choose what cheese to serve. Elise owns a catering company and is affecting an atrocious French accents. Both says they're an expert on cheese. Only one is the cheesiest, the other... has a cheesy accent and is ironically allergic to dairy.
- Emi says that Elise is the cheddar cheater, and très bon, she's indeed a big fat fibber. Joe Barron is a cheesemonster at Saxelby Cheesemongers and a cheesemaker in Vermont.

Now that that's out of the way, Emi is going to get a brief lesson on penguins. That's important, because of who's on deck next.

MAIN GAME: Amanda is a penguin keeper & researcher. Dyan is an aquarist & conservationist. Both claim to be an expert on penguins.
- CLIVE's Clue #1: looks like he's on his way to a formal event. Amanda says it's an Adélie penguin, which is endangered.
- CLIVE's Clue #2: it's a jar of rocks. Dyan says that these rocks from a penguin's nest.
- HOT SEAT: Each panelist gets 40 seconds from Emi. After that, she will have to make her final decision.

THE MOMENT OF TRUTH: Emi says that Amanda is the Big Fibber.
- THE BIG FIBBER IS... AMANDA! Amanda doesn't know who Iceberg is and couldn't point out an Adélie penguin if you paid her (it was a Galapagos penguin), but we all know who Dyan is today. Dyan is Dyan "The Penguin Lady" deNapoli is a penguin expert, TED speaker, and author of The Great Penguin Rescue.

Next time, get wrecked.
Season 1 available in its entirety on Disney+. Another recap follows tomorrow.

Last week, Vernon Davis was sacked as he & Peta Murgatroyd were voted out. Now we move to the top 10, and since it's #SpookySZN, we have our annual Halloween spectacular. This year, you'll have to be really good at being really bad in our salute to villains!

Going into tonight's dances, we have a logham at the top with four couples in first with 27. Skai Jackson & Alan Bersten are alone at the bottom with 18. Okay, let's make like Michael Myers and kill the scores.

LINEUP (with scores from Carrie Ann/Derek/Bruno)
- Jeannie Mai & her partner Brandon Armstrong as Clarice Starling & Dr. Hannibal Lecter - PASO DOBLE to "Maneater" by Nelly Furtado - 8/9/8 - 25 out of a possible 30
- Johnny Weir & his partner Britt Stewart as Dracula & Lucy Westenra - VIENNESE WALTZ to  "Creep" by Vincint - 9/9/9 - 27
- Chrishell Stause & her partner Gleb Savchenko as Maleficent & Prince Philip - PASO DOBLE to "In the Air Tonight" by VonLichten - 9/9/8 - 26
- Monica Aldama & her partner Val Chmerkovskiy as Nurse Ratched & Charles Wainwright - JAZZ to "Fever" by Beyonce - 7/8/7 - 27
- AJ McLean & his partner Cheryl Burke (head) as Norman Bates & Marion Crane - TANGO to "Psycho" by the Intermezzo Orchestra - 9/8/9 - 26
- Nelly & his partner Daniella Karagach as Freddy Krueger & Nancy Thompson - ARGENTINE TANGO to "Can't Feel My Face" by The Weeknd - 9/9/9 - 27
- Justina Machado & her partner Sasha Farber as Carrie White & Tommy Ross - TANGO to "Take Me to Church" by MILCK - 9/9/8 - 26
- Nev Schulman & his partner Jenna Johnson as the Black & White Swans - PASO DOBLE to "Swan Lake Remix" by District 78 - 10!/10!/10! - PERFECT 30!
- Skai Jackson & her partner Alan Bersten as Tiffany Valentine & Chucky - ARGENTINE TANGO to "Everything I Wanted" by Billie Eilish - 9/9/9 - 27
- Kaitlyn Bristowe & her partner Artem Chigvintsev as Cruella de Vil & a Dalmatian - PASO DOBLE to "Disturbia" by Rihanna - 7/9/8 - 24

To review, Nev & Jenna scored the season's first perfecto with 30. Monica is in the bottom with 22. Pretty straight forward, but that's only half of it. The other half comes from the season's ultimate villain.... YOU.

- Jeannie Mai & Brandon Armstrong
- Monica Aldama & Val Chmerkovskiy

The final decision belongs to the judges. Remember, they're voting to save a couple.
- BRUNO: Jeannie/Brandon
- DEREK: Monica/Val
- CARRIE ANN: Jeannie/Brandon

Looks like the nurse is going to need a doctor. Monica Aldama is eliminated.

Going into week 8:
- 30 - Nev/Jenna
- 27 - Skai/Alan, Nelly/Daniella, Johnny/Britt,
- 26 - Justina/Sasha, AJ/Cheryl, Chrishell/Gleb
- 25 - Jeannie/Brandon
- 24 - Kaitlyn/Artem
- 22 - Monica/Val (ELIMINATED)
Nine couples left. Next week, double the dances... and DOUBLE the eliminations.

JEOPARDY! ROUND: We Are the Champions, It's Hyphenated, Bones, A Quiet Place, Historic Lasts, Words That Are in Comprehensible

Brian starts with $400 It's Hyphenated. At the TV timeout, the champ is in front with $400 to $3000 for Jonathan. Ariel is on $1400.

Brian finds the Daily Double under $800 A Quiet Place. He wagers $3200 on this: the phrase "silent running" originated wtih this type of vessel going quiet to avoid detection. "What is a submarine?" RIGHT for $9600. He ends right there to $4600 for Jonathan. Ariel on $3000 gets the board to start...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Composers, Airplane Mode, Fill in the Animal Movie Quotes, A 5-Martini Library, Sonunds Like Money to Me, On Its Western Border

... with $400 On Its Western Border. Ariel finds the first Daily Double under $1200 5-Martini Library. She fronts $2200 on this: in a Kurt Vonnegut novel, Bonnie, a cocktail waitress at the Holiday Inn, calls martinis this, the book's title. "What is... Holy Water?" No, it was "The Breakfast of Champions", dropping her to $2400. Jonathan finds the other under $1200 Airplane Mode. He flies in on $4000 on this: this WWI fighter plane from the Sopwith Co. got its name from the hump-shaped gun housing in front of the cockpit. "What is the Camel plane?" RIGHT for $12,600! He ends up wtih $9000 to $13,200 for Brian. Ariel is on $2800, which is precisely the amount of money left on the board.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Ancient Texts": developed in the 18th century BC & named for a ruler, it aimed to "settle all disputes & heal all injuries". Correct response: what is the Code of Hammurabi?

Jonathan is right... as is Brian to win $18,200, giving him a two-day take of $35,401!

The Voice

Host: Carson Daly with Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Blake Shelton & Gwen Stefani

How do you do a Blind Audition without an audience? We're about to find out as Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend & Gwen Stefani do it one more time on ... The Voice!

First of all, the coaches will be appropriately seated six feet apart, and they will be masked whenever they're not on camera. And the auditionees will not be COMPLETELY without an audience, as we bring out a virtual Zoom audience, or as we call it, "the wall of the world".

Tamara Jade (30; Bowie, MD) is the daughter of a music teacher whose career was beginning to take off when the pandemic hit. She sings "Cuz I Love You" by Lizzo, which she sang backup for at the American Music Awards. After the first note, Kelly and John make a play. Gwen and Blake eventually follow suit. So the choice is up to Tamara, and she picks... "Uncle John".

Lauren Frihauf (16; Byers, CO) grew up on a farm, where she had time to work on her music. She also attended the actual School of Rock in Aurora, CO. She sings "Come to My Window" by Melissa Etheridge... John and Gwen turn their chairs. She picks... GWEN.

Joseph Soul (34; Hana, HI) grew up living the simple life... He didn't even have electricity. After DJ gigs and a residency in Las Vegas, he went with "Is This Love" by Bob Marley. Near the end, Kelly and Blake FINALLY turn their chairs. Joseph goes with... KELLY.

Ian Flanigan (30; Saugerties, NY) lives in a motorhome with his family and travels gigging in various states. His tour came to a screeching halt with the pandemic. He sings "Colder Weather" by the Zac Brown Band. Blake makes a go... and no one gets in his way.

Hailey Green (14; St. Martin, MI) is a student who loves to play football. She sings "Soulshine" by the Allman Brothers Band. With nerves giving way, she still fails to find a man downfield. No chairs.

Jim Ranger (38; Bakersfield, CA) is a third-generation pastor who traveled the south, preaching from church to church. He even tried out for Idol back in season 9. Now based as a campus pastor, he sings "Blue Ain't Your Color" by Keith Urban. And it's the color of everyone except Kelly. Jim passes over the slams from John and goes with Blake.

Eli Zamora (25; El Paso, TX) emigrated from Mexico as a child, where he competed on "La Voz". Today, he's a gondolier in Vegas who says that music helped him learn English. He sings "Ya Lo Se Que Tu Te Vas" by Juan Gabriel. Kelly's willing to take a chance. She's the only one who is.

Next up, something we haven't seen in a while, a truly blind audition, as we don't see her face until someone turns a chair. Singing "Call Out My Name" by The Weeknd is Payge Turner (27; Trinidad & Tobago). Blake is the first, followed by Gwen. Payge goes with GWEN.

Corey Ward (34; Hartsville, SC) played music since he was 13. His mother was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer. As he dedicates this journey on the show to her, he sings "Way Down We Go" by Kaleo. And down he goes. No chairs.

Marisa Corvo (33; Staten Island, NY) has played piano since she was 2, moving to Nashville when she turned 19. At 21, she came out as a lesbian. Her family sent her to conversion therapy, and, shocker, it didn't work. They soom came around to her thinking, as she sings "Perfect" by Pink. Everyone but John wants in. Marisa takes... KELLY.

Finally, another blind audition with "Misty" by Ella Fitzgerald. John wants in... and we meet John Holiday (35; Rosenberg, TX). Kelly and Gwen too want in. But guess what, Kelly... BLOCKED! John sounded like a woman for a while, because he is a trained soprano. John, meet JOHN!

After one night of Blinds...

TEAM KELLY: Joseph Soul, Eli Zamora, Marisa Corvo
TEAM GWEN: Lauren Frihauf, Payge Turner
TEAM LEGEND: Tamara Jade, John Holiday
TEAM BLAKE: Ian Flanigan, Jim Ranger

The Blinds continue tomorrow.Going into week 2 of the Blind Auditions....

TEAM KELLY: Joseph Soul, Eli Zamora, Marisa Corvo, Madeline Consoer, Ryan Gallagher
TEAM GWEN: Lauren Frihauf, Payge Turner, Liam St. John, Chloe Hogan
TEAM LEGEND: Tamara Jade, John Holiday, Cami Clune, Sid Kingsley
TEAM BLAKE: Ian Flanigan, Jim Ranger, Taryn Papa, Aaron Scott

Team Kelly is in front with five artists, while everyone else has four.

Rio Soumba (28; Detroit) works as a production assembly tech for Chrysler. He'll try and put together a winning performance of "Cruisin'" by Smokey Robinson. Gwen's the first to hit, followed by John and Kelly. Blake will sit this out. John is REALLY digging the performance, but is Rio digging him? ... Yep.

DOUBLE BLIND! He sings "Waiting on the World to Change" by John Mayer. After Gwen & John hit their buttons, we meet Ryan Berg (27; Dallas). But wait! John's been BLOCKED! So he goes straight through to Team Gwen.

Becca Kotte (33; Fargo, ND) grew up in a musical family and performed in "Rock of Ages" in Las Vegas. After a stint as a Rod Stewart backup singer, she strikes out on her own as an "American Woman" by The Guess Who. But the coaches... stay away from her.

Jus Jon (30; Newport News, VA) comes from a church background. His mom is his biggest fan. In 1998, she was diagnosed with MS, so he takes care of her. He sings "Talk" by Khalid... no one? Really? It's a last second save from Blake.

Ben Allen (42; Estero, FL) is a cyclist who picked up his first guitar at age 30. Now he's proving that it's never too late to shine. He sings "Red Dirt Road" by Brooks & Dunn. Blake makes a play instantly, followed by Gwen and John. Ben makes the obvious go with Team Blake.

Kelsie Watts (29; Nashville) sings & dances on a showboat. She sings and dances through Kelly's "I Dare You"... and Kelly and Gwen take her up on it. Gwen just gives her to Kelly.

James Mays (27; Memphis) is a big fan of Kelly's. He's also a big fan of leopard print. The pandemic has hit his family hard, having lost both of his grandfathers to COVID. Appropriately, he performs "The Show Must Go On" by Queen... and ... ouch. Nobody turns their chair as James completely destroys the vocal and not in the good way.

DOUBLE BLIND! The song is "Before You Go" by Lewis Capaldi. The singer... Carter Rubin (14; Long Island, NY). His grandfather was part of Jay and the Americans. He goes with ... Team GWEN.

Casmé (39, New Orleans) is the oldest of eight children. She is also a mentor who focuses on women. Now she wants to focus on her singing with "Baby I Love You" by Aretha Franklin. John is the only one feeling it, so he gets a freebie.

Michelle Moonshine (28; Salt Lake City) always felt like an old soul. She first tried out for "The Voice" 10 years ago, but that was interrupted by a pregnancy. Her son is with her for this second chance at "Carolina on My Mind" by James Taylor. Unfortunately, she'll have to be third-time lucky, because no one turns.

Finally, Desz (30; Houston) was shy as a child, especially given that she lost her mom ast 11. She's since performed with Kanye West, the Houston Symphony, and the Houston Opera. She closes out with "Unbreak My Heart" by Toni Braxton. Kelly hits first... followed by John, Gwen, and finally Blake. After a hard fight, Desz picks....


TEAM KELLY: Joseph Soul, Eli Zamora, Marisa Corvo, Madeline Consoer, Ryan Gallagher, Kelsie Watts
TEAM GWEN: Lauren Frihauf, Payge Turner, Liam St. John, Chloe Hogan, Ryan Berg, Carter Rubin
TEAM LEGEND: Tamara Jade, John Holiday, Cami Clune, Sid Kingsley, Rio Soumba, Casmé

She is related to a witch from 1692. Delilah Walker from Henderson, NV is a real estate agent. Craig Watkinson from Van Nuys, CA runs a tutoring business. He is married with a 9 yr old daughter, Samantha. He and Samantha go on game picnics.

The $2,000 Tossup is ON THE MAP. Craig has $2,000 with DEADWOOD SOUTH DAKOTA. He starts TITLE and picks up the WC with 2 $500 R's but misses after doing some work. Margaret misses. Delilah Bankrupts. Craig solves TALES FROM THE CRYPT for $4,350 and the WC. He has $6,350 and the WC! We move on to...

The Prevagen mystery round which is started by Margaret. It's BEFORE & AFTER. She hits 4 $500 Free Play N's but misses. Delilah hits 5 $500 T's which also gets her the $1,000 Mrs. Prindables GC but hits Lose A Turn. Crag hits 4 $3,500 H's, uses the WC and adds another $10,500 with 3 G's for a total of $24,500! After a couple of spins after that, we get a nasty trick of a $24,250 Bankrupt. BOO! Margaret hits a $500 Free Play B, a $3,500 P and solves THINGS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT VISION for $7,400. She has $8,400. We move on to...
