Bayleigh Drayton is savoring her status as Head of Household for Week 5 of “Big Brother.” She won the title a few hours after the eviction of Kaitlyn Herman on July 26. Bayleigh has been busy throughout the day on Friday (July 27) considering which of the two houseguests she will nominate this evening for the live eviction vote on August 2. We’ve been watching the live feeds and have all the juicy details of her various discussions with the other remaining 11 contestants. (Keep reading for spoilers about the possible eviction nominations.)
Two of the dozen players — F.O.U.T.T.E. alliance members Haleigh Broucher and Angie “Rockstar” Lantry — were each up for elimination in Week 4 at one time or another alongside Kaitlyn. They are enjoying their newfound status as #BB20 jury members and staying out of the way of Bayleigh.
Bayleigh and Tyler Crispen have bonded after the elimination of their frenemy Kaitlyn. The Week 5 HoH was quick to assure the Week 1 winner that he is safe. Tyler is playing the game masterfully, manipulating Bayleigh by using their shared feelings about Kaitlyn.
Bayleigh is eyeing Brett Robinson, who was up for eviction in Week 3 (when Winston Hines went), as a target. She has told most of the remaining women as well as Faysal Shafaat that she thinks his stay in the house is up. However, when it came time to talk to Brett, she lied to him and said that she was just going to pick the two nominees by lots.
As for the second nominee, Bayleigh is torn between three houseguests: JC Mounduix, Scottie Salton and Rachel Swindler. While Faysal made a strong case to keep his buddy JC, Bayleigh was less than convinced and he is the likeliest of the three to fill the second slot.
With regards to Rachel, Bayleigh told her friend Kaycee Clark that she is willing to strike a bargain to keep her off the chopping block, but she expects something substantial in return. Scottie, who was HoH in Week 3, also appears to be safe for now. However, if the Power of Veto winner saves one of the nominees on Monday, Bayleigh has said that she could well swap him in their place.
