Heading into Sunday’s all-new “Big Brother,” 15 houseguests still remained in the house after Steve Arienta was evicted by a 7-6 vote over Sam Bledsoe. Earlier during the live Head of Household challenge Kaitlyn Herman lucked out by scoring the highest salary with the “Land a Job” ball-launcher, so she succeeded Tyler Crispen as the second HOH of Season 20. After consulting her third eye, the universe, and her grandfather’s spirit within Lou the bird, who did Kaitlyn ultimately decide to nominate for eviction?

8:00 p.m. – “Previously, on ‘Big Brother’!” On Thursday’s eviction episode Kaitlyn betrayed her FOUTTE alliance and instead sided with the Level 6’ers to vote out Steve. If she continues working with Level 6, that means Tyler, Angela Rummans, Brett Robinson, Kaycee Clark, Rachel Swindler and Winston Hines will all be safe this week. But knowing how unpredictable Kaitlyn is, it’s anyone’s guess who she’ll decide to nominate for eviction. Let’s find out!
8:06 p.m. – Kaitlyn’s mind is spinning after she flipped on her alliance and immediately won HOH. Swaggy C Williams is furious and his showmance Bayleigh Dayton is trying to keep him calm. Swaggy and Faysal Shafaat confront Tyler in the pantry to ask who flipped. Tyler wants to protect Kaitlyn and suggests the “Super Power” must have gotten Steve evicted.
8:12 p.m. – In the kitchen, Swaggy and Faysal start to suspect Kaitlyn flipped but ultimately think she’s still on their side. But when discussing possible nominations, Swaggy thinks Bayleigh and himself may be on the chopping block. Despite voting against FOUTTE last week, Kaitlyn seems legitimately unsure which side of the house she’s playing for. She tells Rockstar Lantry, Haleigh Broucher and Faysal they are safe, but hasn’t ruled out Swaggy or Bayleigh as potential nominees.
8:16 p.m. – Out on the hammock, Swaggy and Bayleigh discuss their relationship. Bayleigh says she is trying to convince herself not to like him, but moments later they’re making out. They’ve decided they should now consider themselves a power couple: “Swayleigh.”
8:20 p.m. – Kaitlyn continues to tell FOUTTE they are safe, but in the Diary Room she confesses she will listen to them but ultimately needs to play her own game. Down in the bathroom, Rachel is shaving JC Mounduix‘s back. Sometimes people just need to pass time in this house! Back in the pantry, Tyler is filling Sam in on his master plan that saved her game (flipping Kaitlyn). Now Tyler wants to subtly influence Kaitlyn to nominate Swaggy. After telling her Sam has the power, Kaitlyn gets excited and asks if she can put Winston and Angela on the block. Tyler refocuses her on backdooring Swaggy and suddenly Kaitlyn seems poised to make a power move. She also seems to love doing whatever Tyler tells her to do.
8:30 p.m. – Sam confesses to Kaitlyn that she holds the secret power. Kaitlyn already knew this, but like any good psychic, she pretends she sensed it herself. Kaitlyn then goes to Winston and tells him she is putting him on the block this week so she can backdoor Swaggy. She then tells Scottie Salton he will be the other pawn, but he’s far less receptive to this plan. To calm his fears, Kaitlyn tells Scottie that Winston would go home if nobody comes off the block. If this gets back to Winston, Kaitlyn may be screwed! She then tells Swaggy her plan to nominate Winston and Scottie, and he is so clueless that he laughs with glee. He doesn’t even suspect she’s trying to send him home on Thursday.
8:40 p.m. – Faysal gets another “Hamazon Delivery” and is notified his subscription has ended. Finally his gluttonous vegan ham binge over! That means the “BB App Store” is open for business once again. Rachel is distraught to learn she is America’s LEAST trending houseguest. The “Crap App” of her choice is called “Yell!” For the next 24 hours an Angry Reviewer will be unleashed into the house at random times to loudly give feed back on Rachel and her game.
8:43 p.m. – Swaggy is convinced nobody in the house is bigger than Swaggy C! Clearly he should have won the first week, but since he didn’t, Week 2 must be his time, right? No! And Swaggy is fuming. Tyler has in fact won this week’s “Power App.” He chooses “The Cloud,” which will keep himself from going on the block at any one nomination ceremony or Veto meeting. If he is worried about being nominated, he will sit on the cloud and he cannot be put on the block. He has a two month subscription to the cloud. Wow! That’s huge. Over the next eight weeks, Tyler can keep himself safe one time using the cloud.
8:45 p.m. – Swaggy is still fuming that he lost the Power App. In the pantry, Scottie tells his pals Swaggy and Faysal about Kaitlyn’s plan to use him as a pawn this week. It makes no sense to them and Swaggy is determined to change Kaitlyn’s mind about using Scottie as a pawn. Faysal tells Scottie that he will try to talk some sense into Kaitlyn. But will it work?
8:55 p.m. – Faysal plops down next to Kaitlyn and Tyler in the bedroom. He convinces Kaitlyn that Scottie is not doing well and she needs to go speak with him. Kaitlyn runs to speak to Scottie, leaving Tyler and Faysal behind. Those two are discussing what the super powers could be and Tyler plays dumb, pretending to know nothing. Kaitlyn continues to reassure Scottie he will not be going home, but she can’t tell him Swaggy is her actual target. She then pulls Faysal aside and asks him, “Who has the power? Scottie or Swaggy?” Her senses are telling her that it is one of them, but her senses seem to be failing her. Faysal changes the subject and wants to understand the purpose of putting Scottie on the block if she is targeting Winston. Kaitlyn can’t keep her mouth shut and says he shouldn’t worry, whatever she is planning will be for the greater good of everyone. That sends Faysal into a complete state of paranoia!
8:59 p.m. – It’s time for the Nomination Ceremony! As expected, Kaitlyn nominates Scottie and Winston for eviction. Her plan to backdoor Swaggy is still in full swing, but a lot can change in the “Big Brother” house. Who will win the Power of Veto on Wednesday? And who will be sent packing on Thursday? Stay tuned, the drama is just beginning!
