Warning! The following contains spoilers from the Big Brother All-Stars episode from Thursday, August 20. Read at your own risk!
Another week in the Big Brother All-Stars house has come and gone, but with the arrival of another week comes the reign of another HOH. After Memphis Garrett's run ended in Nicole Anthony going home, the house is up for grabs and there's a chance to really shake things up in a big way if the right person wins.
The "Jaysar" alliance needed a big win this week to feel safe, or at the very least, have a week where one of them isn't sent home. Did they pull it off? Here's what happened with the HOH, and how the new winner may run their week of Big Brother All-Stars.
Tyler Crispen Won The HOH
Tyler Crispen has been playing the low-key game he was known for on Big Brother Season 20, but now he's thrust into the spotlight as a HOH. Tyler ended up being the champ of the beer slide with a score that toppled Ian Terry's already impressive numbers.
Tyler's upcoming week should be an interesting one, because it marks the third week the majority alliance started by Cody Calafiore ruled the house. There's going to be an expectation by the alliance thrust on Tyler, but is he going to risk the backlash that comes with taking a big shot?
How Will Tyler Crispen Run His HOH?
Tyler was one of the many voices in Memphis Garrett's ear last week, wondering why Janelle Pierzina and Kaysar Ridha weren't being nominated or potentially backdoored when the veto was secured. Memphis decided to put up Nicole Anthony and David Alexander to pass the buck to the next person. Well, next week is here, and if Tyler Crispen thinks he's not going to get asked to put them on the block, he has another thing coming.
It's not exactly the worst move for Tyler, because he's about as good with his alliance as one can get. Janelle Pierzina and Kaysar Ridha will need to take down some big players should they ever get control of the house to survive, so keeping them alive is just as much a risk to his game as it is everyone else. This could be the week that he puts them on the block.
With that said, I mentioned Tyler Crispen is not the type of player who does the dirty work. He usually saved the big moves for other players in his alliance, and more often than not frequently acted as mastermind for them. Putting Janelle and Kaysar on the block is a big shot, and if one of them survives, there's a good chance he'll be up on the block. That's not a risk Tyler will like, but it's also possible that by killing that alliance, he all but guarantees a smooth road for his alliance the next few weeks.
And, frankly, it stands to reason Tyler Crispen really has no other choice. Passing the buck once again on Janelle and Kaysar in Week 3 will not be as well-received as it was in Week 2, and some alliance members may begin to think they can't trust Tyler if he hesitates on that. Additionally, we know that Tyler wanted to play the veto last week to save David Alexander, so I don't see him throwing David back up on the block even if it means an easy nomination.
With that said, I think there is a chance Tyler goes rogue with nominations. His alliance has been talking up how they don't trust Da'Vonne Rogers, and quite a few people seem to be noticing Kevin Campbell hustling around the house for Nicole Anthony. There's also an opportunity to nominate former winner Ian Terry, though that would only appease Memphis Garrett and piss off Nicole Franzel. Yes, I left out Bayleigh Dayton, but only because I know Tyler has a heart and won't take that shot against his former house rival from Season 20 unless he absolutely has to. He and Bayleigh are fine right now, so I just don't see that happening.
