Time of ‘Hacker-secret-death’ for Haleigh is 5:50 PM BBT on Tuesday. We can now pronounce Tyler as the only Big Brother 20 HG who seems capable of keeping a secret this summer. Yes, it’s happened. Haleigh has decided to spill the beans and reveal her position as this week’s Hacker after winning Friday’s comp, renom’ing Tyler, and taking on all the guilt for something that wasn’t really her fault.
Haleigh and Bayleigh are alone in the Lounge when Haleigh tells her she needs to apologize to Bayleigh and wants her to understand that she would “never intentionally make anything bad happen to you in this game. I owe you an apology because I won the Hacker competition.”
Bayleigh is in disbelief and asks Haleigh if she’s serious as Haleigh nods then cuts in, “I need you to listen to me.” She explains her motive to Bayleigh saying, “I wanted to take a shot at Tyler, and I thought the only way to do it without any of us getting caught would be to not take Rockstar off. I would never, ever have done it if I had known you were going to get caught. And I can’t stand to watch you do this, so I’m going to call a House Meeting…”
Bayleigh stops Haleigh and tells her not to call that meeting. She says she’s “so pissed” but doesn’t want her to do the meeting. At this point, Haleigh really starts to cry and Bayleigh comforts her telling her it’s okay. They hug and cry and hug and cry.
“I’m so pissed,” repeats Bayleigh but she promises Haleigh it’s not directed at her. Instead, Bayleigh is upset that HGs turned on her so quickly yesterday. But here’s the thing, it didn’t happen just yesterday and it didn’t happen because of this Hacker accusation.

Angela and L6 didn’t really think Bayleigh was the Hacker nor did they care. They knew about Bayleigh’s Big Brother Identity Theft power after Bayleigh told Rachel who told her allies (who then voted her out). Then Bayleigh explained precise details of how it worked and when it could be used. She drew them a roadmap to their need to evict her. Now Bayleigh is going out the door and wants to blame this Hacker story which was nothing but a cover and an excuse for Angela’s renom. It’s Bayleigh’s own fault she’s being targeted. Plain and simple.
Haleigh told Bayleigh she’s going to delay telling the rest of the Big Brother 20 house until Wednesday. I’d say, “if she were smart she wouldn’t at all,” but I think Haleigh has remedied us on that one. Telling anyone at all was a terrible idea. Even if Haleigh doesn’t hold her meeting Bayleigh is likely going to repeat this before she’s gone. It’s going to spread and for what? No good will come of this.
If L6 catches wind of Haleigh being the Hacker then Tyler will know where to aim his focus should he or any L6 member or ally gain power. All the while Haleigh will have gained nothing but the temporary relief of confession. It won’t help her game and can only hurt her at this point.
Now, of course, I hope she does hold that House Meeting. I want to watch this blow up the Feeds and keep us entertained, but my chance at a half million dollars isn’t on the line here like it is for Haleigh. Maybe she’ll reconsider if it isn’t already too late.
