The first Hacker Competition was held on Friday. While the results won’t be revealed till Sunday’s episode of “Big Brother,” we’ve been watching the live feeds and have all the spoilers. This new twist in the game was teased by Julie Chen on the live August 2 episode of #BB20. The Hacker Comp winner can rescue one of the nominees from the eviction vote and name a replacement. In addition, they can choose one of the houseguests to vie for the Power of Veto. And they can nullify one of the votes for eviction.
Each of the remaining 11 houseguests had a chance to win by doing the best in an individual timed test to solve a series of word puzzles. Haleigh Broucher won this first-ever Hacker Comp and quickly set about deciding what to do with her newfound power. This 21-year-old student from College Station, Texas did not have to disclose her win to the rest of the house.
She opted for altering the Week 6 nomination evictions of Head of Household Angela Rummans. She saved Scottie Salton, and substituted in Tyler Crispen. This 23-year-old lifeguard from Hilton Head, South Carolina will face Angie “Rockstar” Lantry in the live eviction vote on August 9.
Because Haleigh kept the results of the Hacker Comp to herself, speculation is running high that Scottie won and chose to save himself. Haleigh’s next task will to pick one of the houseguests to play in the Power of Veto competition on Saturday against Angela, Rockstar and Tyler.
Rockstar, a 34-year-old homemaker from Columbia, Maryland had been up for elimination in Week 4 but won a landslide victory over Kaitlyn Herman. Tyler has never been on the chopping block. Vote in our poll below as to which of these two you’d like to see evicted on August 9. Or do you like them both so much that you want to see a substitution in the nominations at the PoV ceremony? And be sure to sound off in the comments section with your thoughts on #BB20 so far.
