'Big Brother' spoilers: Who won the third Head of Household competition? And who is the new target?
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 07/14/2017
Big Brother live feed spoilers have revealed which Season 19 houseguest won the third Head of Household competition of the summer, and which players the new HoH is targeting this week.
After Cody Nickson was evicted from the Big Brother house instead of Ramses Soto and Alex Ow with seven votes, Thursday night's live eviction episode concluded with all the houseguests -- minus Paul, who as the outgoing HoH was deemed ineligible to compete, and Christmas, who was in the hospital -- fighting to win the Head of Household competition.
For the competition dubbed "Space Cadets," each houseguest was required to stand on a small ledge or perch for as long as possible as he or she was repeatedly tilted forward and sprayed with cold water as well as green slime.

According to Big Brother's live feeds, the Head of Household competition ended about one hour and 40 minutes after it began live on television Thursday night.
And the new HoH is Alex, a 28-year-old eco-friendly marketing representative from Thousand Oaks, CA who currently resides in Camarillo, CA.
Alex apparently had to make deals to keep both Elena Davies and Jason Dent safe so they would drop out of the competition before her and give her the crown.
After the competition, the new Head of Household said she was ready to "make a huge move."
Alex discussed possible targets with her fellow houseguests and determined Jessica was going up on the chopping block no matter what. Alex therefore needed one more nomination, and players were bouncing around different ideas.
Alex talked to Paul Abrahamian -- who used Alex as a pawn on the chopping block for this past eviction -- about nominating Jessica and Dominique for eviction, with Christmas Abbott being the replacement nominee if necessary.
Paul agreed with those decisions, and then Alex told the cameras her target is actually Dominique this week, with Jessica as the backup option.
It's a little surprising Alex isn't gunning for Jessica full-steam ahead since the girls weren't getting along when Cody was still in the house. Jessica was jealous of Alex's relationship with Cody and how he tried to keep her safe when he previously served as HoH.
