Tyler insisted to the group he voted for Kaitlyn although they had been close in the house, and then Brett suggested to JC, Tyler, Angela Rummans, and Kaycee Clark that Scottie Salton was likely the person with the rogue vote.
JC was so proud of himself because no one suspected him to be the culprit. Even Bayleigh told Sam that she thought Scottie was the random vote for Rockstar.
"I think it was Scottie and he was just trying to frame Tyler," Bayleigh said in a confessional.
However, the competition was about accuracy, not about being the fastest, as each person had to try to make the trip in exactly eight seconds. It didn't matter whether the houseguests were over or under eight seconds.
The winner of the competition came down to the person who landed closest to eight seconds, and that person was Bayleigh.
Tyler was especially disappointed by the competition's results because he was hoping someone from his "Level 6" alliance was going to win. Rachel feared Bayleigh was going to put two members from her alliance on the chopping block.
After the competition, Tyler chatted with Bayleigh about how upset he was to vote out Kaitlyn when he was trying to be loyal. He faked some tears to make Bayleigh think Kaitlyn was his "No. 1," but in reality, Tyler admitted in the Diary Room she was ninth or maybe even tenth down on his list.
Bayleigh understood where Tyler was coming from, and she thought he was a "wounded" lone wolf and "free agent" with "great loyalty." As a result, Bayleigh decided she wanted Tyler on her team and they should work together going forward. It also helped Tyler is a competition beast in Bayleigh's mind.
Bayleigh then spoke to Haleigh Broucher about how Brett and JC were probably targeting her and so it made sense to nominate them for eviction.
"And Scottie has been acting real shady. I definitely think it was Scottie who flipped the vote," Bayleigh told her gal pal, later telling the cameras Brett was the obvious choice and her second nominee was a bit of a wild card.
Scottie promised Bayleigh that he didn't flip on the Kaitlyn vote, and so he wasn't on her immediate radar. Bayleigh also noted everyone trusted and loved JC, so it was important he wasn't making deals with everyone in the house.
Despite their differences in the past, Bayleigh had no intention of making JC her target. She did, however, consider using him as a pawn.
At the thought of Bayleigh using him as a pawn, JC complained to cameras, "Are you crazy girl? Is this how you want me to start working with you? You must be out of your mind right now. I came here to play, not to be some kind of puppet."
Faysal worked closely with JC in the game and needed him to stick around, so he attempted to make sure Bayleigh's plan was going benefit himself. Faysal argued JC was a valuable, loyal ally and asset to keep around while Rachel was working for the other side of the house.
It was clear Faysal was "sticking his neck out to save JC," and Bayleigh didn't know what to think about that. Bayleigh needed Faysal to be "Team Bay and Hay" and not question her HoH reign and decisions.
Afterward, Bayleigh talked to Rachel about how Brett had to go, even though Rachel insisted she had him wrapped around her finger and he was easy to control. Bayleigh told Rachel that she might need to go up as a pawn but should trust her.
While Rachel typically wouldn't trust Bayleigh, the HoH let her know that the second Power App of this game belongs to her. Bayleigh also explained how she will be able to change nominations once that time comes.
It then became time for the Nomination Ceremony, and Bayleigh nominated Brett and Rachel for eviction.
Bayleigh told Brett he's the easiest one to put up because it wouldn't get blood on her hands and Rachel had a chance to play for the veto. Bayleigh added her decisions were not personal, and nominating JC would've just given her a headache.
