‘Big Brother 20’ spoilers: Behind-the-scenes of the Week 4 eviction vote on July 26

Wednesday’s episode of “Big Brother” concluded with a big reveal: Power of Veto winner Faysal Shafaat rescued his pal Haleigh Broucher from the chopping block and Head of Household Sam Bledsoe then replaced her with Angie “Rockstar” Lantry. Rockstar now faces off against Kaitlyn Herman in the Week 4 eviction vote that will be held on Thursday’s live installment of #BB20.

The PoV ceremony that culminated in this shocking switch was on Monday and the house has been buzzing about the upcoming vote ever since. We’ve been watching the live feeds and have the full rundown of all of the intrigue that has taken place over the last 72 hours.

Right after the tense ceremony, Sam went to Kaitlyn and then Rockstar in a vain attempt to get them to absolve her of any blame for putting them forward for elimination. She also looked to be let off the hook by her pal JC Mounduix, who she had openly considered as a replacement for Haleigh. To atone for this sin, Sam promised JC that if the 10 houseguests split evenly as to who should go, she would break the tie by casting her vote for JC’s frenemy Kaitlyn.

Tyler Crispen, who was HoH in Week 1, is working hard to save Kaitlyn. She had used him to backdoor Chris “Swaggy C” Williams in Week 2. Since then, their friendship has flourished and he is determined to keep her in the game, believing her to be a weak opponent in the final. However, he has been having a hard time corralling the necessary votes.

He has run up against a concerted effort by Angela Rummans to oust Kaitlyn, who she believes to be too closely aligned with the men in the house. To that end, Angela has recruited Kaycee ClarkBayleigh Dayton and Rachel Swindler to her side. In addition, Brett Robinson, Haleigh and Faysal are leaning toward casting their votes against Kaitlyn.

However they are worried about the consequences, especially in light of the revelation by Sam that whoever loses the vote will get a chance to win her way back into the house. As Sam didn’t use her Bonus Life Power App in the allotted time, it now goes to this week’s evicted houseguest. We don’t know yet whether this Battle Back will be part of Thursday’s live show or if we’ll have to wait to see the outcome on Sunday’s episode.
