A major pre-season “Big Brother 22: stars ” rumor was Nicole franzel was the reason the former winners Derrick Levasseur and Dan Gheesling not playing this season. Well, Janelle Pierzina confirmed that this is more or less the case.
During a morning conversation with Nicole Antoine Friday on live streams Janelle spilled tea as she expressed shock that Nicole F. worked with Cody Calafiore, aka the right-hand man of Derrick’s Hitmen in Season 16.
“Well, it’s very weird that she’s working with Cody because from what Dan told me, she’s the reason Derrick isn’t here,” Janelle said. ” Then I do not know. I do not understand. Like, what did she do? How did she do that? I am so confused. But that’s what Dan told me.
Janelle: Well, it’s very strange that she (Franzel) is working with Cody because from what Dan told me, she’s the reason why Derrick isn’t here … what did she do? How did she do that? I am so confused. But that’s what Dan told me. # bb22 pic.twitter.com/N45NklfuBR

She added that she doesn’t think Cody even knows what Nicole F. did. And honestly, no one at this point except the parties involved knows what she’s done. But the rumor was that Nicole F. was upset that she was not invited back and subsequently made a deal with the production to denounce the guests who performed before the game in exchange for being chosen. She allegedly infiltrated a group chat that included Dan and Derrick, then told the production they were strategizing, and boom, Dan and Derrick left.
Derrick denied that Nicole F. had anything to do with her absence, but made it clear that all is not well between the two of them at the moment.
” I’m not going to
I won’t lie – Not happy with Nicole right now. But there was never a group chat that I was involved in. https://t.co/nWtWdaJAWy

My business with my friends is between us.
But I’ll say this: There is ZERO truth to the rumor that Nicole had something to do with me not being on the show.
So all my supporters: Please don’t blame her.
I did what was best for my family.

Dan also denied the rumors, tweeting that “none of them are close to the truth.”
Has been tagged in # BB22 rumors about my participation… none of them are close to the truth.
I understand that the thirst for casting ☕️ is insatiable at the moment but tomorrow we find out who the players are!
Everyone relax and be nice to the HGs (and to each other)

The truth is probably somewhere in between. Rumor has it that TPTB took out Derrick and Dan for devising a prior strategy, and the point is, they really would? They’re two legends of the game, and fans have been claiming that they’ve been playing together ever since Derrick demolished everyone to a win in Season 16. And seeing as their two sidekicks / runners-up – Cody and Memphis garrett on season 10 – are on the show and the fact that Julie chen moonves Asked Cody if the Hitmen or the Dan and Memphis Renegades were the best alliance on Wednesday, looks like the show wanted a Hitmen vs Renegades head-to-head. What is more likely is that Dan and Derrick found out that Nicole had denounced them and the two of them decided to make peace.
Hopefully someone (Janelle?) Will ask Nicole the question soon and we can watch her try to get out of it.
