Faysal Shafaat is savoring his status as Head of Household for Week 8 of “Big Brother.” He won the title just minutes after the eviction of Angie “Rockstar” Lantry on August 16. Faysal was busy throughout the night and into the day on Friday (August 17) considering which of two houseguests he will nominate for the live eviction vote on August 23. We’ve been watching the live feeds and have all the juicy details of his various discussions with the other remaining eight contestants. (Keep reading for spoilers about the eviction nominations.)
He told his pal Haleigh Broucher that two of the other remaining houseguests — past nominees Kaycee Clark and Angela Rummans — were weak competitors who weren’t worth wasting a nomination. Rather, his first impulse was to nominate Tyler Crispen and Brett Robinson. He regards them as two of the strongest players on #BB20.
Tyler was also in the firing line before but managed to avoid being in the final two when the vote was taken. In Week 6, Angela won the Power of Veto and swapped him out with Bayleigh Dayton who ended up being bounced. In the end, Fessy fessed up that he was not going to tap Tyler.
However, he did nominate Brett, a 25-year-old cybersecurity engineer from Massachusetts. Third time might not be the charm for Brett, who won close votes in Weeks 3 and 5 over Winston Hines and Rachel Swindler respectively.
The second nominee is a shocker: Scottie Salton, a 26-year-old shipping manager from Chicago. Faysal sees him as a rival for Haleigh and has decided the best way to deal with this is get him bounced from the house.
