‘Big Brother’ 20 eviction predictions: Will Steve Arienta or Sam Bledsoe be first player evicted from the #BB20 house?

The first eviction for “Big Brother” 20 is set for Thursday, July 5. Up for elimination are retired cop Steve Arienta and welder Sam Bledsoe. As of this writing, Steve is the overwhelming favorite to be the first of the 16 houseguests to be eliminated from #BB20. Our exclusive “Big Brother” odds peg him at 7/5 to be booted compared to 12/1 for Sam. Who do think will be the first houseguest voted out on this live episode and who do you think is the early frontrunner to win the game? Be sure to update your predictions in our season-long event.

Steve and Sam were tapped for possible eviction by Tyler Crispen who won bragging rights to being the first Head of Household. The 23-year-old lifeguard lasted the longest in an endurance test. He had been considering swapping in one of his last-standing rivals in that contest, Bayleigh Dayton, should either Steve or Sam be saved by the Power of Veto. But Faysal Shafaat, who won the PoV competition, decided not to switch out either of those up for eviction with another houseguest.

We know that Sam has a secret weapon. After she was turned into a robot at the end of the HoH competition, America decided to reward her with the “Power App,” which gives her a bonus life in the game. If Sam or a player of choosing gets booted in one of the first four live evictions, she has the opportunity to save them.
