Kaitlyn HermanWelcome to our Big Brother 20 houseguest spotlight series! In these articles, CarterMatt will be giving you a first look at all of the contestants taking part in this epic season premiering on Wednesday, June 27 on CBS.

There’s one thing that stands out about 24-year old Kaitlyn Herman right away and it comes via her profession: Life Coach. What does that even mean? If she’s just a life coach we’ll actually buy into it; the people we don’t buy into are the ones who list off around twenty different jobs and that just happens to be one of them. That typically just means you have no job and zero idea what you want to do. That being said she actually does seem fairly focused on it, judging from her Twitter, which will in turn lead you to all of her other channels.

Houseguest comparison – She’s basically what happens when you merge Ashley from Big Brother 14 and “love revolution” Anick from Big Brother Canada 2 into a single person. No more really needs to be said on that. 

Have they seen the show before? – Questionable. She claims that Victor Arroyo is her favorite houseguest, and yet acts like that’s some sort of controversial opinion to like someone voted America’s Favorite Player. Yet, she does know that he and Nicole are together. Jury’s out there.

Fun facts – There’s this story from her bio, for starters:

“Years ago, I went to a psychic medium with the hopes of connecting with my deceased grandfather, but the medium surprised me by revealing I would soon be one of the most influential self-help women in the world.”

That almost says all you need to know about her. She’s spiritual, she’s out there, she loves crystals (the love of crystals this season is astounding), and she has elaborate rituals that she does with sage and essential oils. Basically, she’s in the wrong decade.

Early assessment – The problem with Kaitlyn is that through her bio, it’s hard to view her as anything other than a character that you’ve seen in a sitcom who loves spirituality. There’s not enough dimension there and if she does this in the house all the time, it’s going to be off-putting. She’s not lasting long.
