I have missed this for too long and can not wait for August 5th! I have written what I would do if I won the first HOH of the summer. Although the cast is not confirmed by CBS, I have heard from multiple sources (including BigBrotherJunkies) that the two names below are coming back. With that said, enjoy the article!
As the first HOH, I put up Hayden and Bayleigh. Hayden supposedly has no one from his season to support him in the veto competition. On the other chair sits Bayleigh. She is the pawn nominee. She might have the support of old Season 20 members and she is a smart and physical player. In fact, it might make more sense to eliminate her instead of Hayden. So why is Bayleigh the pawn? When Bayleigh feels hurt, her emotions can lead her to an epic meltdown targeting another player (look at S20 with Tyler, and The Challenge with Kaycee). That is exactly what I want to have happen. If it happens, she becomes uncomfortable to be around for everyone else in the house. Then, if she can alienate herself by the end of week 1, she becomes the target of the house for week 2. Therefore, she takes all the heat off of me.
But let’s go back to Hayden. Hayden won S12. That right there is enough to get him nominated any week this season. He is a clear physical threat and is not given enough credit for his social game. He supported the decision to backdoor Matt out of the Brigade on S12. He saw the benefits there and felt no regret. Plus, there is not supposed to be anyone else in the house from his season to support him. With all that, Hayden is an easy nom to evict on week 1 without disturbing the house. If Bayleigh hits the road, it’s not a loss because a strong competitor leaves the game anyway.
Anyway, those are my thoughts. I am, as I said before, excited to be back. The BB community is always great! We haven’t had this in 15 seasons! Please share your thoughts and opinions in the comments and be nice to each other. If you haven’t seen season 7, yet I recommend watching it. Thank you for reading.
