It’s been a tumultuous two weeks in the “Big Brother” house thanks to the new Hacker Comp. First Angela Rummans‘ Head of Household reign was threatened when Haleigh Broucher became the hacker and switched up Angela’s nominations. Then Haleigh became the HOH and the tables turned as Angela’s ally Kaycee Clark became the second hacker and messed up Haleigh’s game. Haleigh initially nominated Angela and Kaycee for eviction, but Kaycee removed herself and put up Rockstar Lantry instead. Did Wednesday’s Veto save either Angela or Rockstar, and did Haleigh’s true target Tyler Crispen save himself with his Cloud power app?

8:00 p.m. – “Previously on ‘Big Brother’!” In Sunday’s episode everything was going fine for Haleigh’s alliance until Kaycee won the Hacker Comp. The power gives Kaycee three advantages this week: to switch up the nominations, to name a person to play in the Veto competition, and to cancel a vote at the live eviction. How did the threat of Kaycee’s hacker power affect the house this week, and was Tyler given the chance use his power app? Let’s find out!
8:10 p.m. – Following the hacker meeting, Haleigh is upset but still hopes to backdoor Tyler. Kaycee thinks she can keep it under wraps that she’s the hacker, but it’s sort of obvious. Kaycee then confirms with Angela that she should pick Tyler to play in the Veto rather than herself. If Tyler wins the Veto he can save Angela AND keep himself off the block without using his cloud app. Meanwhile, Brett Robinson has successfully infiltrated the other side of the house through Haleigh. He’s in a great position and really isn’t anyone’s target anymore. Rockstar thinks the hacker is either Scottie Salton or Brett. They also think Kaycee is a possible culprit. They’re just determined to get SOMEONE from Level 6 out of the house at this point.
8:17 p.m. – Sam Bledsoe feels like she is starting to lose her mind in the house. She’s concerned that she’s set her up to look really stupid at the end of the game. Sam doesn’t feel Tyler is genuine when he tells her that she’s his number one alliance. Tyler reassures her she is fine, but moments later she tells him she has this gut feeling that he’s lying to her. Has she absorbed Kaitlyn Herman‘s clairvoyance? Tyler is just trying to keep her under control at this point. Moments later Tyler heads up to the HOH room to make sure Haleigh doesn’t think he’s the hacker. She reassures him everyone thinks it’s Kaycee. Haleigh will feel terrible if Rockstar goes home on her HOH. Meanwhile, she tells Tyler that Angela is her target. Haleigh claims she won’t backdoor Tyler but she’s lying and he knows it.
8:22 p.m. – Rockstar is salty about being on the block again and confronts Kaycee. Kaycee denies being the hacker, but the argument continues. Kaycee reminds Rockstar that Scottie was taken off the block last week and he wasn’t the hacker. Kaycee walks away. I think this relationship is over. Oh wait, Rockstar follows Kaycee to the bedroom to argue some more. Rockstar is upset they didn’t try to take a “bigger shot.” It was actually smart to put her on the block because she’s not a strong competitor and isn’t likely to win the Veto.
8:25 p.m. – It’s time to pick players for the Veto competition! The hacker (Kaycee) chose Tyler to play. Haleigh then pulled two chips to determine who else will play. Rockstar was drawn and she picked Faysal Shafaat to play. Angela was drawn next and she picked Kaycee to play.
8:30 p.m. – Angela, Kaycee and Tyler are determined to win the Veto and prevent two Level 6 members from being on the block at the same time.
8:42 p.m. – The houseguests head out to the backyard and discover the Veto competition is the legendary OTEV game! OTEV will ask for a “medicine” that contains the names of two evicted houseguests. They will slide down the waterfall and search through the forest for the “medicine” that meets his description. They must then return by climbing up the slide and give OTEV the correct medicine. The last person to complete the task in each round will be eliminated. After the first round, Kaycee was eliminated. The next to be eliminated was Angela, leaving Tyler to fight alone for Level 6. Next to be eliminated was Fessy. During the next round, Tyler grabbed the wrong answer, but Rockstar made the fatal mistake of comparing her answer with him at the finish line. He realized he was wrong and ran back out on the course to keep looking. He found the correct answer, returned and eliminated Haleigh. WOW! Rockstar deserves to go home for that. The final round all comes down to Rockstar vs. Tyler.
8:50 p.m. – Rockstar and Tyler are searching for the final answer. Rockstar thinks she has the answer, climbs up to meet OTEV and celebrates like Rocky Balboa. Minutes go by and Tyler finally climbs up to meet OTEV as well. When they reveal their answers, it turns out Rockstar was wrong! Tyler won the Golden Power of Veto! Rockstar screwed up TWICE. Humiliating.
8:55 p.m. – Haleigh and Fessy are in the HOH room. They can’t believe Rockstar showed Tyler the answer during the Veto competition. They’re debating if Kaycee will go home over Rockstar. Who will Haleigh put up if Tyler saves Angela?
8:59 p.m. – It’s time for the Veto meeting! As expected Tyler pulls Angela off the block, returning the favor after she did the same for him last week (even though he technically won that Veto too). Haleigh decides to put Kaycee back up on the block next to Rockstar. Will Kaycee or Rockstar become Juror #2 on Thursday night? Find out tomorrow on “Big Brother”!
