It’s been quite an eventful Big Brother 20 week, and it might end with nobody actually going home this week. Big Brother 2018 so far is the gift that keeps on giving, but where does everyone stand going into the fifth week of the game?
Let’s kick off our Big Brother power rankings for this week.
The vote is somewhat up in the air but Kaitlyn Herman is very much in trouble of going home. She’s been all over the place this week, and I think her flirting with Faysal Shafaat, Tyler Crispen, and Brett Robinson is really what might sink her ship. That said, Kaitlyn has a pretty good chance of coming back, and the vote could still flip back, but Kaitlyn will continue to be a target. She is almost always the center of all the drama.
Angie “Rockstar” Lantry has had somewhat of a downward spiral this week after Brett’s eviction speech, which led to pots and pans, and a week long vendetta against Brett. Rockstar apologized and has coming around, but people were ready to write her off, including her own allies like Bayleigh Dayton. That said, if she does stick around, by either the vote or winning her way back in, Rockstar will probably be less of a target than Faysal, Kaitlyn, and maybe even Scottie Salton.
Faysal’s continued Power of Veto dominance is not great for his longevity. And he continues to get himself surrounded in drama with Kaitlyn, Haleigh Broucher, and Bayleigh. While he’s certainly capable of winning competitions, it will make a target out of him. Faysal is making more inroads but mostly with the other men and they are outnumbered. I think he’s highly at risk of being backdoored in the coming weeks if the Level Six side wins power.
Most of the houseguests, Rockstar notwithstanding, like Brett but he’s also seen as a major threat. The women have the numbers, which makes him more of an obvious target than any of the women from the Level Six alliance. Tyler is also a potential target but I think he may be better insulated than Tyler, and not to mention the fact that Tyler has a power that he could use to protect himself, that leaves Brett as a glaring obvious target.
Sam Bledsoe‘s actions this week could catch up with her. She’s put herself on the radar at least temporarily, with Kaitlyn and Haleigh in particular. Sam might stick around through it all, but she’s pretty disposable to all of them, so she could end up going home if people decide on saving a bigger target for later. Sam could easily be a pawn that they’d all be okay with going in the next few weeks.
Scottie slipped beneath the radar this week, but he’s still very much someone that Rachel Swindler, Angela Rummans, and Kaycee Clark are looking at him as a possible target. Scottie doesn’t really have a ride or die, or anyone really looking out for him. Similar to Sam, he’s seen somewhat disposable, and I think he’s one of the easier outs.
It’s sort of been JC Mounduix‘s coming out week, he’s been playing the game and playing hard. He’s pushing his agenda way more than before and not holding back. I think JC is in a decent spot, but as he continues to get his way, and get more aggressive, he might put himself more in the spotlight and become a target for someone. What he should do is continue to ride the middle and relax, but JC is letting it be known what he wants and he might actually get his way.
Rachel has sort of been more in the spotlight this week too. Her attitude on slop, and her pushing for Kaitlyn to stay, has sort of made her more of a name that’s been tossed around for some people. JC and Rachel in particular have a somewhat ongoing feud that might eventually come to a head. She’s gone from probably being the safest Level Six female to the one most at risk just because she’s been attracting more attention to herself than Angela or Kaycee.
I think Tyler pushing for Kaitlyn to stay might not be a great look for him. First of all, she will likely return, and second of all it makes him look like he’s more loyal to her than he really is. Tyler has sort of taken a step back from being in the center of the action, and that’s a good place for him. He needs to let other people feel as though they are getting their way sometimes, or else Tyler will be at the front of people’s radars. I also don’t think that Tyler is as high up on the Level 6 heirarchy as he thinks.
Haleigh is well-liked for the most part, but I do think some people don’t know where she stands or who she’d nominate. Haleigh obviously is invested in keeping her closest ally Rockstar around but she’s not being aggressive about it. If Haleigh can sort of fade into the background for a few weeks, she’ll be looking good, but the more FOUTTE members that survive evictions, the better for her.
Bayleigh has stepped up her game hardcore this week, and she has worked her way into a spot in the middle. It’s sort of a dangerous game and Bayleigh needs to remember her original allies, but if she can keep everyone happy, she’ll be sitting pretty and not need to use her power for a while. But Bayleigh needs to not stretch herself too thin because that’s where things could get dicey for her.
I know it’s shocking but Angela is there! And actually, I’ve been seeing her actively playing the game much more this week and I’m liking what I’m seeing. She has a good perspective on the game and is very calm and measured in her decisions. I think Angela is maybe slightly more out in front than Kaycee because she’s stand-offish, and seen as a good competitor, but really she’s not at any risk right now. Angela might be subtly pulling the strings behind the scenes, and doing what she can to advance herself the most.
Kaycee and Angela really are neck-and-neck but I think Kaycee is more well-liked, and not seen as a big threat as much despite her performing better in the endurance Head of Household competition. She’s in a good spot, positioned between Tyler and the Level Six females, and also has good connections with Bayleigh and some of those outside her alliance. Eventually she’s going to need to play for herself, but for now she’s probably positioned the best out of everyone.
