This evening, things officially got a little bit more interesting in the Big Brother 20 house courtesy of the hacker comp, especially since this twist could actually raise the odds of a big threat going home.
Nobody would fess up to having the power going into the second nomination ceremony this afternoon, but when the feeds came back, it was Tyler who was officially on the block! That’s a huge move since Tyler could not really shield himself using his power app — he has to use it before nominations. Now, he’s in a position where he really does need to use the Veto in order to save himself.
Let’s think for a moment here about voting possibilities right now: There are eight potential voters this week in Faysal, Haleigh, Bayleigh, JC, Kaycee, Brett, Sam, and Scottie. (The Hacker removed Scottie from the block, and replaced him with Tyler.) If Tyler has the votes of JC, Kaycee, Brett, and Sam, he could tie the vote and Angela could break the tie. Yet, if the Hacker Comp winner cancels a vote, that means that Tyler is reliant on getting Bayleigh’s vote — something that is not guaranteed.
Tyler is smart enough to realize that he has to win the Veto in order to secure his stay, but here’s the other thing about this twist: Haleigh is going to probably pick Faysal to play in the Veto, hoping that he’ll win it and keep noms the same. While Tyler has for sure Angela fighting for him, his fate all depends on what the competition is and whether or not it is one that he can win.
Here’s another interesting twist here: The Hacker Comp winner isn’t safe. That means that if Tyler gets off the block, it’s certainly possible that, if this person gets found out, they are sent home.
