As the award for America's Favorite Houseguest was announced, it was revealed that Haleigh finished in the top three in votes received for the award, but lost the contest to Tyler. Haleigh and her showmance partner, Faysal Shafaat continued a relationship post big brother.

[13] On Day 86, JC was nominated alongside Sam by Tyler, the HOH during the second portion of the Double Eviction (JC's nomination ensured that all Houseguests this season have since been on the block at one point or another in the season). JC was saved from eviction by Angela using the Power of Veto, in which Brett went up in his place and was evicted. On day 91, JC won the Head of Household competition and nominated Tyler and Angela for eviction.

On Day 17, she nominated Scottie and Winston for eviction. On Day 20, Kaitlyn named Swaggy C as the replacement nominee after POV winner Tyler removed Scottie from the block. On Day 31, she was nominated for eviction (alongside Haleigh) by Sam (the HOH). On Day 37, Kaitlyn was evicted by a vote of 9-1. Due to Sam's B.B. Power App called Bonus Life, she was given the chance to return to the game. However, she failed to complete the task and her eviction was sealed.

KayceeEdit

Kaycee Noelle Clark (born December 26, 1987), 31, is a pro-football player for the San Diego Surge and entrepreneur from Tempe, Arizona. Originally from San Diego, California, she describes herself as fun, positive, and athletic, and enjoys playing sports, working out, and personal development.[15] On Day 52, Kaycee was nominated alongside Angela by Haleigh, the HOH. On the same day, she won the H@cker Competition. She removed herself from the block and chose Rockstar as the replacement. On Day 53, she chose Tyler to play in the Veto competition. When Tyler won the Veto he used it on Angela, then Haleigh nominated Kaycee again as the replacement nominee. She was nominated again the following week as a replacement nominee when Brett won Veto and used it upon himself, landing on the block against Scottie. On Day 67, Kaycee won the Veto. On Day 69, Kaycee decided to not use the veto, leaving Angela's nominations of Faysal and Haleigh intact. On Day 76, Kaycee chose not to use the Veto, keeping Tyler’s nominations of Scottie and Haleigh intact. On Day 79, Kaycee won HOH. On Day 80, Kaycee nominated Haleigh and Sam. During the same week, Kaycee won her third consecutive Power of Veto, tying the all-time consecutive veto wins record. She ultimately opted not to use the veto, leaving Haleigh and Sam to face that week's eviction vote (which would turn out to be the first eviction of that evening's Double Eviction). Kaycee won her fourth veto during Week 12, and again opted not to use the veto, leaving Angela's (the week's HOH) nominations of JC and Sam intact. On Day 91, Kaycee won her fifth veto of the season (which also happened to be the final Power of Veto competition for the summer), tying the all time record of veto wins in a season. As she was the sole houseguest not on the block or HOH that week, the Veto was not used. Kaycee thus held the balance of power that week as she held the sole vote to evict, opting to evict Angela. On Day 99, Kaycee won the Final HOH and chose to evict JC, taking Tyler to the Final 2. Kaycee won Big Brother 20 by a vote of 5–4 over Tyler, and became the first openly lesbian winner of Big Brother.
