Big Brother: All-Stars featured Enzo Palumbo being crowned the season's new Head of Household and nominating Kaysar Ridha and Kevin "KC" Campbell for eviction during Sunday night's Season 22 episode on CBS.
During the Nomination Ceremony, Enzo chose to put Kaysar and Kevin on the chopping block together heading into the fourth live eviction of Big Brother: All-Stars.
The season's fourth HoH competition dubbed "Carnival Quick Shot" required the participating All-Star players to compete in two groups of six.
The first group was comprised of Nicole Franzel, Da.Vonne Rogers, David Alexander, Ian Terry, Enzo and Kaysar. Each person had three balls to roll up a ramp in attempt to sink them in three holes in the middle of the ramp.
The first three houseguests to achieve that goal would advance to the final round and compete against the three winners in the second heat.
"This is the very first time I've been in this house without Janelle. They're coming for me next. I've been hunted like a dog since I first stepped foot in this house. Everything is riding on this right now. I have to win," Kaysar told the cameras.
Kaysar managed to score two balls on his very first attempt down the ramp, which blew Tyler away.
Tyler Crispen, the outgoing HoH, explained he didn't want to see Kaysar win because he would definitely be on Kaysar's radar. After all, Tyler had been responsible for sending Janelle out the door.
Nicole said Janelle leaving took a lot of weight off her shoulders and she now feels like she can play the game to the best of her ability.
Meanwhile, Enzo had never won a Head of Household before, and he hoped to become "the King of the Castle." Prior to this competition, Enzo had won a Power of Veto and "Safety Suite" comp, so he wanted to add to his resume.
Kevin wanted to win the competition because he said he didn't trust anyone in the house, and Da'Vonne and Christmas were desperate to win in order to see photos of their children, whom they missed terribly.
Memphis hoped to win the Head of Household competition in order to stay in power and target David again. Memphis knew he wasn't safe in the game with David gunning for him.
And Bayleigh set out to win in order to prove to her alliance she can win comps and isn't afraid to make a big move to support and benefit them.
But Kaysar was the first person to advance in Round 1, and he competed against David, Enzo, Cody, Dani and Kevin in the final heat.
In the final round, Kaysar was the first person to sink two balls, when Enzo only had one ball in a hole. However, Enzo came from behind and was crowned the season's new Head of Household.
"Ten years I waited for this opportunity! I don't care who is in this house, I am coming after everybody. I want blood all over me, yo! I here to cause chaos and win this thing!" Enzo bragged.
Kevin swore on his life and his family's lives he did not vote for Kaysar to go home, and that's because Enzo was the other vote.
Cody then sat down and talked to Enzo. The boys were like "blood brothers," according to Enzo, who said he's always have Cody's back in the game.
Cody shared with Enzo how Dani had asked him to vote for Kaysar with her in order to throw two people under the bus, and so Enzo pointed out it must have been Dani who voted for Kaysar.
Cody told Enzo that he didn't believe Dani, and the guys questioned whether they could trust her going forward.
After Kaysar and Da'Vonne had a powerful conversation about racial discrimination and having the courage to rise above the hate, it became time to pick new Have Nots for the week.
Tyler volunteered to be a Have Not, and then Cody asked Da'Vonne to be one. And finally, Bayleigh picked Dani, who announced, "I'm coming after you!"
"Listen, swing, but don't miss," Bayleigh advised Dani.
Dani, however, had Nicole by her side because the girls are good friends inside and outside the Big Brother house. Dani said she never had to worry about Nicole talking behind her back or backstabbing her, and she trusted Nicole 100 percent.
Nicole also told the cameras she wanted to go far into the game with Dani and so she'd protect her. Nicole hoped for protection in return.
Enzo then admitted to Cody he was thinking about nominating Kaysar for eviction as well as a pawn like Kevin. Enzo said Kaysar hadn't talked any game or strategy with him and so he didn't trust Kaysar.
Prior to the Nomination Ceremony, Kaysar did make an attempt to form a connection with Enzo.
Kaysar told Enzo that he wanted to play against competitors, not floaters. Kaysar said he respected Enzo for winning comps and would like to play with him going forward.
Kaysar felt "cautiously optimistic" after their conversation, but Enzo explained to home viewers Kaysar had talked "no game" with him for four weeks.
Enzo seemed to like Kaysar as a person, but he vented, "What am I going to do?! He hasn't talked any game with me, so I can't trust him."
Enzo and Christmas then promised loyalty to each other, with Enzo predicting Christmas was going to be like his "pitbull" in the game. Enzo also considered nominating Ian for eviction given he didn't talk much game and seemed like a straight-shooter.
Christmas told Enzo not to underestimate Ian in the game because he's won the game before and also performs well in competitions. Christmas and Enzo also agreed Kevin is a floater, and Christmas warned Enzo that Nicole was close with Dani and Ian.
Enzo shared with the cameras how putting Kaysar on the block was "a done deal" and he just had to figure out whom to nominate alongside him.
At the Nomination Ceremony, Enzo announced he had decided to nominate Kaysar and Kevin for eviction.
"It's nothing personal. I just feel like it's been four weeks in this house and we really haven't game-talked at all. Let's fight for this PoV. If you win it, I'll congratulate you guys. And that's it. Good luck!" Enzo announced.
