Warning! The following contains spoilers from the Big Brother All-Stars live feeds as of Monday, September 7. Read at your own risk!
Big Brother All-Stars has been on a predictable run since Cody Calafiore formed a majority alliance in Week 1, largely because "The Committee" has slowly picked off folks outside their fold week by week. Week 5 looked to be the same story when Christmas Abbott nominated Da'Vonne Rogers and Bayleigh Dayton and won the veto to prevent anyone using it to save them, but now some unexpected moves by other players may have convinced her to use the power after all.
In a shocking turn of events, Tyler Crispen approached Bayleigh and Da'Vonne on Sunday night in tears and upset about the way he's played his game. Big Brother fans may remember Tyler and Bayleigh famously had a massive fight when they competed on Season 20 of Big Brother, and the event was traumatic enough for both parties that it's no surprise it has reared its ugly head again, despite seemingly having been quashed outside the house. As houseguests chattered about the potential building feud between them in the house, Tyler finally approached Da'Vonne and Bayleigh with kind words and a surprising proposition, noting,
You are an amazing person, Bay. I dont like to see you down like this. I know you (Da'Vonne) are a single mom, you are a competitor, you have never made it as far as you deserve. I'm going to ask Christmas if one of you can come off the block and I can go.
Tyler Crispen then went to Christmas Abbott's Head of Household room and talked with her for over two hours. Unfortunately, Big Brother All-Stars' production team kept live feed viewers out of the conversation, likely to save some drama for Wednesday's episode. If the plan discussed is what it sounded like, Tyler asked to be put on the block and hopes to be voted out of the house as opposed to Bayleigh Dayton or Da'Vonne Rogers.
As of this morning, it sounds like the plan is going to happen, which will come as a shock to the unsuspecting (unless a wall yeller already spoiled it) Committee. Dani Briones suspected Tyler was trying to convince Christmas to put her on the block, so if it ends up Tyler gets nominated, I'm expecting a wave of confusion to wash over the house. Tyler was in about one of the safest positions in the game, so there's certainly going to be some confusion all around on this decision.
The real question is whether or not The Committee will vote Tyler Crispen out regardless of whether or not he wants to stay. Losing one of their own will decrease their numbers and take out one of the strongest physical competitors in their alliance. The Committee was already down a threat for physical competitions due to the injured Memphis Garrett, which leaves Enzo Palumbo and Cody Calafiore with some weight on their shoulders to win. With Christmas Abbott unable to compete in the upcoming HOH competition (unless Dani uses her recently acquired the power to allow it), the other side of the house could easily snag another win and shift the momentum of the game.
There's also the fact that we don't know exactly what Christmas Abbott and Tyler Crispen discussed. We know what he told Da'Vonne Rogers and Bayleigh Dayton before entering the room, but a lot can happen in a conversation that exceeds two hours. It's possible the two worked up a plan to nominate another houseguest which would save Bayleigh and Da'Vonne but also keep Tyler in the game. Remember, Tyler is Christmas' "Final 2" buddy in Big Brother All-Stars, so this loss would likely impact her heavily as well.
Tyler Crispen requested Christmas Abbott not share whatever plan they worked up until it's time for the veto meeting, but things like this always manage to work their way around the house. The veto meeting is typically held on Mondays, so unless it's delayed due to holiday, we'll know the response and potential fallout from the decision by Monday evening. Even then it's a long way to go until Thursday's vote, so who knows what drama may unfold by then?
