“Big Brother” host Julie Chen shocked viewers during this week’s live eviction episode when she announced that next Thursday will feature a special Jury Battle Back showdown. “On Thursday another houseguest will be evicted, but they are not necessarily headed to the jury house,” Julie teased. “That’s right, it’s time for a Jury Battle Back. You don’t want to miss this epic competition when Bayleigh Dayton, Rockstar Lantry, Scottie Salton and next week’s evictee face off to get back into the game.” Who do YOU hope returns to the “Big Brother” 20 house? Vote down in our poll below.
When Bayleigh was evicted two weeks ago, she told Julie in her exit interview, “I do love [the houseguests] but they get on my last nerve. Being in that house with those people drove me insane!” Bayleigh later said that her biggest mistake in the game was not her showmance with Chris “Swaggy C” Williams, but that she told Rachel Swindler about her power app. Because of that, news of her power app spread through the house like wildfire and Bayleigh was seen as a huge threat.
Rockstar was sent packing last week thanks entirely to the hacker twist. After Kaycee Clark won the hacker comp, she secretly nominated Rockstar for eviction. Since Rockstar’s alliance was not allowed to vote (Haleigh Broucher was HOH and Faysal Shafaat‘s vote was canceled) only one person ended up voting for her to stay: Scottie. Unfortunately, Scottie’s decision would come back to bite him the following week.
After Faysal won HOH this week, he decided to nominate Scottie and Brett Robinson because they both took credit for the sole Rockstar vote. Unbelievably, even though Scottie was a member of Faysal’s alliance who voted to keep Rockstar, he was still put on the block and ended up being eliminated by the first unanimous vote of Season 20. “Fes is a hypocrite and doesn’t realize that he betrayed me first,” Scottie told Julie after his eviction.
Who will be the fourth jury member to play in the Battle Back: Tyler Crispen, Sam Bledsoe, JC Mounduix, Angela Rummans, Brett, Haleigh, Kaycee or Faysal? We’ll find out next Thursday, August 30 when the house votes live to evict one of the two nominees. In the meantime, cast your vote in our poll for which of the jury members you want to see return to the game for another shot at the $500,000 prize.
