Allison Grodner Interview: Bayleigh’s Downfall, Familiar Faces, & Season Highs

Bayleigh Dayton on BB20

Another week in the books for Big Brother 20 and this has been an amazing season of twists and turns that fans deserve in so many ways. But while it’s working out great for us someone has to be evicted each round and this time it was Bayleigh’s turn for that. So what brought down her game? Big Brother’s Executive Producer Allison Grodner generously took the time again this week to chat with us about Bayleigh’s downfall, familiar faces, and what’s been her own top moment of this fantastic season so far.

Big Brother Network: Bayleigh went from riding high as HOH to out the door the next week. She seemed fixated on blaming the Hacker confusion for her eviction. What do you think sent her out the door?

Allison Grodner: I really believe that the main reason Bayleigh is sitting in the jury house today is that she told Rachel about her secret power. She only became Tyler’s main target and therefore the target of Level 6 once it was known that she had a game changing power. Had she kept it a secret, she would probably have survived the week.

BBN: Jessie Godderz made his annual trip to the Big Brother house this past week following an earlier appearance by Rachel Reilly. Are there more familiar faces from Big Brother’s past heading to BB20?

Allison Grodner: You will definitely be seeing more familiar faces before the season ends. It has been nice to pay tribute to the past 20 summers of BB by bringing back some of the most memorable players.

BBN: This season is so good I’m worried I may have died and gone to Big Brother Heaven. What’s been your top moment of this season so far?

Allison Grodner: HA! I am glad you are enjoying the season. I think the week-to-week power shifts and blindsides are definitely making this a summer to remember. One of the highlights was last week when Rachel went out and was so stunned she couldn’t even talk for the first few moments with Julie.

BBN: Thank you!

I’m seriously thrilled with this season. The power shifts and utter confusion throughout the house have made this such an entertaining ride. We’ve got so much more to enjoy and we’ll get to see some more familiar faces along the way.
