Last clue -- $1600 Playbill -- belongs to India. She goes for $5000 on this: this musical's "American Dream" ended on Brodway after 4097 performances--& a lot of helicopter flights. "What is 'Miss Saigon'?" RIGHT for $18,200! With Robin on $8800 to Babu's $6000, it was India's game to lose.

|Big Brother All-Stars
by Chico Alexander & Jason Block
Host: Julie Chen Moonves
Cody won the first HOH - tonight is nomination night! Ian, Kevin, Nicole and Memphis are the Have Nots.
Julie teased the "Safety Suite" as a new twist.
Cody didn't want the target - but he is happy he is the new HOH. Da'vonne is starstruck. Ian wanted the HOH - but he can get through the game. Janelle is the first 4 time player. Janelle wants to work with Kaysar again. All the players are touring the house. Nicole(podcaster) feels strange.
Enzo is happy. Meow Meow is back. Nicole(influencer) is indebted to Da'vonne for the final vote in her winning season. She wants to return the favor.
Have nots head to their room (Finally). They aren't impressed. David wants to be the first black winner and speaks to Kaysar about it. Kaysar talks about the evolving of the game.
Cody/Nicole(influencer) want to work together. Cody wants to nominate Keesha. They want to make alliances based on boys/girls. Cody knows about the Janelle/Kaysar duo. Tyler is pumped for Cody being HOH. They bro-bond cautiously.
The next day - Day 2
Cody tells everyone to meet them in the living room.
HE READS : AS JULIE TOLD US, EVERY ONE IS GOING TO GET ACCESS TO A NEW MYSTERIOUS ROOM - THE SAFETY SUITE. IT'S TIME TO FIND OUT HOW THIS TWIST WORKS.
Cody hands out VIP Passes to all the players.
HE CONTINUES: FOR THE NEXT THREE WEEKS, THE SAFETY SUITE WILL BE OPEN UP FOR A SPECIFIC AMOUNT OF TIME BEFORE THE NOMINATION CEREMONY. INSIDE THE SUITE IS A ONE AT A TIME COMPETITION WHERE THE WINNER EARNS SAFETY FOR THE WEEK. THE VIP PASS ALLOWS ACCESS TO THE SUITE - BUT BE CAREFUL, YOU CAN ONLY ENTER ONCE. JUST TO BE CLEAR, ONCE YOU ENTER THE SUITE AND USE THE VIP PASS YOU CAN NEVER USE THE PASS AGAIN. WHETHER IT'S A STRATEGIC MOVE OR YOU ARE PLAYING FOR SAFETY, WHEN YOU ENTER THE SUITE IS UP TO YOU. THE CURRENT HOH(CODY) CANNOT ENTER THE SAFETY SUITE DURING THEIR HOH REIGN. AND, THERE IS MORE TO WINNING THAN JUST SAFETY FOR YOU - THE WINNER OF THE COMPETITION CAN NAME A +1 (MEANING A 2ND PERSON WILL BE SAFE). THE SAFETY FOR THE PLUS ONE COMES WITH A PRICE - AN ALL STAR PUNISHMENT WHICH THEY MUST ENDURE FOR THE ENTIRE WEEK. BIG BROTHER WILL ANNOUNCE WHEN THE SUITE IS OPEN. GOOD LUCK.
Enzo, Bayleigh, Cody react to the twist. Keesha reacts to it as well. She's stressed.
Kaysar needs to talk to Cody. They chat and Cody is playing it cool. Kaysar is insulted by his cool response.
Big Brother announces the suite is open and they have one hour to decide if they want to play.
Cody/Enzo chat. David is deciding what to do. Janelle chats with Cody. She raises a red flag with Cody. Janelle feels something is in the works. She isnt buying Cody's story. Cody chats with Memphis. Memphis wants to join forces - Cody wants Janelle/Kaysar up due to their history. They go over old school/new school players. The clock ticks down to zero. Kaysar/Janelle play the Suite. Janelle is like "Sorry I ruined your nomination plan!" Kaysar goes into the suite first and it looks like the hip VIP room of a club.
THE SAFETY SUITE COMPETITION IS CALLED BB DJ.
KAYSAR AND JANELLE WILL STEP BEHIND A DJ BOOTH. THE BB DJ WILL PLAY A TRACK AND THEY HAVE TO RECREATE IT BY PRESSING THE BUTTONS IN ORDER AFTER HEARING THE TRACK. FASTEST PERSON TO DO THAT WINS SAFETY FOR THE WEEK. IF THEY MAKE A MISTAKE, THEY HAVE TO START OVER.
The remix is Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Kaysar presses the blue button to hear the remix in it's entirety. Then he goes around the DJ Booth pressing one button at a time to hear the individual tracks. Kaysar completes it. The houseguests discuss the safety suite players. Next is Janelle who completes it.
- Winner of the safety suite - Kaysar 7:55 over Janelle - 16:36.
KAYSAR is safe. He takes Janelle(Naturally) - and
Cody is pissed that he has to take two new nominations.
Kaysar is ready to take the young people out. Kaysar is so happy. Cody/Nicole F talk Kevin/Keesha. Janelle gets to wear an "All-Star Mascot" costume as punishment for the week. Kevin asks to talk to Cody. He's intimidating to him. They talk and Cody/Kevin hug it out. Cody is stressing about the nominations. He needs to separate emotions from playing the game.
NOMINATION CEREMONY #1:
1st - Keesha
2nd - Kevin
Keesha is shocked to see herself on the wall. Kevin is saying he's coming for Cody after beating Keesha. Cody says nominations arent personal. Kaysar is so happy that he derailed Cody's nomination! Who wins the POV? Will they use it to take Keesha or Kevin off the block? Find out next time on BB All Stars!
