At the Nomination Ceremony, Angela nominated Scottie and Rockstar for eviction.
However, Haleigh Broucher subsequently came into power as the "BB Hacker" this week, and she in turn secretly decided to remove Scottie from the chopping block and put up a big threat, Tyler Crispen, who has been playing an excellent game under the radar.
The Big Brother broadcast began on Day 44, with Angela being crowned the new Head of Household.
Brett Robinson bragged about how his speech worked perfectly, calling Rachel Swindler out for having been a part of an all-girls alliance called "Maneaters."
Footage then flashed back to 45 hours before Rachel's eviction. Angela was shown suggesting to Brett that he throw Rachel under the bus for disclosing Bayleigh Dayton's Power App to others in the game.
Bayleigh said Brett did nothing but piss her off and make her want to target him even more. Bayleigh was so mad at Brett, but he didn't understand why he was the bad guy given Bayleigh had put him on the chopping block in the first place.
Since everyone was "looking at [Bayleigh] funny" due to her Power App, she wondered whether she should use it right away just to flush it out of the game.
Meanwhile, JC Mounduix was playing both sides of the house, and Rockstar was crying because she missed her family terribly.
Bayleigh was set on finding out the truth about whom had voted for Brett vs. Rachel, and one thing was for sure -- she didn't trust Rockstar.
Tyler Crispen and Kaycee Clark were then shown celebrating Rachel's ouster together, with JC soon joining the celebration. Tyler was so proud of himself for how his plan had worked out perfectly, but he needed to seem confused in front of Rockstar and Faysal Shafaat.
The next big twist of the summer was then announced to all the houseguests.
For the next two weeks, a new "Hacker Competition" will be played following the Nomination Ceremony. Everyone would compete, but only one person would secretly win, becoming the "BB Hacker."
"This houseguest will secretly hack the game all week long. First, the BB Hacker has the ability to hack the nominations after the Nomination Ceremony by removing one nominee from the chopping block and replacing them with a houseguest of their choice," declared a voice coming from the houseguests' living room television.
"Next, the BB Hacker will secretly choose one houseguest to play in the Veto Competition. And finally, the BB Hacker will secretly eliminate one houseguest from casting a vote on eviction night. So, will you be hacked or be the one doing the hacking?"
Scottie noted this new Hacker Competition was going to be "a game changer," and Angela realized her power as HoH this week had just plummeted.
Both sides of the house discussed how they needed to win this Hacker Competition, especially since Brett was sitting in "a pot of boiling water."
Sam Bledsoe, however, had an idea about how to "keep the peace." Sam's "brilliant" idea was that all of the houseguests should forgeit the competition to Sam and then she'd vow not to use the power.
Everyone smirked when Sam suggested such a plan, and it was clear nobody took her seriously.
Angela was annoyed Sam was trying to run the house during her HoH reign. It also became clear that the houseguests couldn't trust each other, and with "snakes" in the game, according to Angela, Sam's initiative would never come to fruition.
Tyler, Angela, Kaycee and Brett then talked about the upcoming nominees.
Angela considered nominating Rockstar and Scottie and then "rolling the dice" from there. Kaycee and Tyler; however, declared Bayleigh "the leader of the pack," so the pair mentioned Bayleigh should go up on the block if someone in their own alliance ending up winning the Hacker Competition.
Angela hoped they could get Bayleigh -- "the brains behind the other side of the house" -- out before she even received had the chance to use her Power App.
Bayleigh then explained to Angela how she had to decide whether to use her Power App before Angela announced her nominations, so she couldn't exactly veto one of Angela's choices.
Angela's goal was therefore to make Bayleigh feel safe so she wouldn't play her "Identity Theft" Power App this week. Angela told Bayleigh exactly what she wanted to hear, which included the fact Faysal was going to be safe as well.
At the Nomination Ceremony, Angela revealed she had decided to nominate Scottie and Rockstar for eviction only because it didn't make sense for her to have much strategy this week since multiple twists and Power Apps were floating around in the game. (Tyler still had the other "Cloud" App, which could be used to keep himself safe if nominated).
Angela was relieved Bayleigh did not use her Power App, but Rockstar cried in the Diary Room, saying she felt like she was "getting beat up" and her "ass kicked" in the house.
It then became time for the players to compete in the Hacker Competition. Each houseguest was required to unscramble aBig Brother word, such as "Showmance."
The first three players to correctly unscramble a word in each round would earn one point. The player with the most points after seven rounds would win the Hacker power.
Scottie, Haleigh and Tyler were tied for first place with three points each after the sixth round. And once the competition concluded, Haleigh learned she had become the season's first "BB Hacker."
Haleigh began thinking about the biggest threat in the house who was going unnoticed. Angela thought Scottie won the competition because "he's a genius," but she was obviously wrong.
The BB Hacker decided to hack nominations by removing Scottie from the chopping block and putting up Tyler in his place.
"You cannot ride the fence or play the middle in this house and not get noticed. I think Tyler has played the middle; he has played both sides, and he is getting away with it. So, if I don't make this move now, I don't know if it will ever be made," Haleigh said in the Diary Room.
Angela called the turn of events "a nightmare" and said her goal was to win the Power of Veto, save Tyler, and then throw Bayleigh out of the house.
Tyler was proud of the BB Hacker for making a big move, admitting it was about time someone else in the house -- other than himself -- executed one.
