Tomorrow night, the first four evictees compete for a chance to return to the Big Brother 20 game. We love Battle Backs because they bring excitement and adrenaline. We’re also particularly excited about this year’s Battle Back players, because they all have the potential to create some waves. All four evictees exited the house in a dramatic way.
Bayleigh Dayton left the game after being falsely accused of being the Big Brother hacker. She also got into a huge confrontation with Tyler Crispen, and she got a mean message from Brett Robinson. Angie “Rockstar” Lantry’s eviction was a blindside. Then Brett and Angela Rummans both left her mean goodbye messages, after Brett pretended to be her ally all week. Scottie Salton got sent back by his Hive teammate, Faysal Shafaat. He didn’t know who to trust. Faysal is most likely leaving this week after Angela broke their deal.
One way or another, we’re in for a dramatic Big Brother 20 return. Going into tomorrow’s night highly anticipated return, we’re going to look at the first four evictees’ potential going back into the game, and how they can stop from being the victim of a revolving door eviction.
Bayleigh is probably the returnee that strikes fear in Level 6 the most. She has an issue with all four of them, and not afraid of confrontations. Bayleigh could be a ticking time bomb ready to destroy Level 6’s game. The only way for her not to leave next week is if she wins Head of Household, and then tries to form a new group with JC Mounduix, Sam Bledsoe, and Haleigh Broucher.
The only problem with this idea is that JC doesn’t like her. It’s hard to see any scenario where these two can settle their differences and become allies in the game.
Rockstar’s eviction benefited no one, because she isn’t really a game threat. She hasn’t won any competitions, and sadly, she isn’t respected enough in the game to win five votes. Of the potential returnees, Rockstar has the most longevity possibility. We just don’t see players ever seeing her as a game threat.
The best way for Rockstar to actually make some game moves is to get a new group of misfits together, and then she needs to take on the leader role. Rockstar needs to get it into their heads about thee danger of the other side, especially Tyler. We worry that Rockstar will be too preoccupied about getting petty revenge to get strategic revenge, and she’ll focus all her time and energy on getting out Angela or Brett instead of focusing on Tyler.
Scottie has the least chance of going very far in the game without winning a bunch of competitions. He still doesn’t really have an ally, and after being scorned once, he’s likely to not trust anyone in the game. Scottie’s best chance to make some moves is to comp beast his way to the finals, and he has that potential. He also needs to fully trust Haleigh, and then try to form a threesome with her, him, and Brett.
If the three of them can find a way to truly trust each other, they have the potential to go far. They’re all have competition capabilities and strategic potential. We are just worried that Brett won’t leave Level 6 until it’s too late, and Scottie will never trust either of them. He also might try to form something with Tyler, which will be his kiss of death.
Faysal or Haleigh
If Faysal returns, he needs to let Haleigh be the brains. He can be the muscle. He also needs to fully gets his head into the game. No emotional stuff, just gaming until the end. Faysal will also need to comp beast his way to the finale, because otherwise, he’s going out the minute he has no power. We just worry that Faysal can’t fully commit to the game. He’ll always be more worried about outside factors, like being America’s Favorite or his relationship with Haleigh.
Haleigh isn’t likely to leave on Thursday, but there is always a chance of a last minute vote flip. So if Haleigh is evicted and returns, she needs to weaponize Faysal against the other side. Unleash his potential beast, and become the brains behind the duo. She needs to get him to listen to her, as she makes the strategic decisions. The duo also need to trust each other completely.
