When Bayleigh Dayton and Da’Vonne Rogers sat on the block next to each other in Big Brother 22, Tyler Crispen tearfully offered to leave for them because they were “standing for a bigger cause.” However, the BB20 star seemingly changed his mind, upsetting viewers who accused him of performative activism. After his eviction, he reflected on his decision and noted he “feels good” about his choice.
Tyler Crispen offered to leave for Bayleigh Dayton and Da’Vonne Rogers
During the first week of Big Brother 22, Tyler Crispen joined a six-person majority alliance “The Committee” and made a final two pact with member Christmas Abbott. He, Dani Briones, and Nicole Franzel, who are also members of The Committee, subtly convinced Christmas to target Bayleigh Dayton when she won Head of Household because they didn’t want to nominate her.
However, the three wanted Bayleigh out of the house before the jury phase because they believed she would vote emotionally instead of who played the best game.
When Christmas became HOH in Week 5, she nominated Bayleigh alongside her “untouchable,” Da’Vonne Rogers. However, Tyler felt bad for their position and offered to leave because he saw they were “standing for something bigger.”
The BB20 runner-up then talked to Christmas, but she refused to send him home during her HOH, so he had to rescind his offer, and Bayleigh went home as planned.
Tyler became the sixth member of the ‘Big Brother 22’ jury
After trying to leave during Week 5, Dani put him on the block a week later because David Alexander saved himself with a Disruptor power. Even though he stayed on the block until eviction night, The Committee evicted Ian Terry over their ally.
Tyler then sent Dani home a couple of weeks later during the unprecedented triple eviction. However, he attempted to flip the vote to send Nicole Franzel home, a shot that came back to bite him the following week.
Her closest ally Cody Calafiore became the outgoing HOH and nominated him alongside his final two partner.
Although Tyler threw a few hail mary’s in an attempt to stay in the house, the remaining houseguests deemed him as the biggest threat due to his competition wins and sent him to the jury.
Tyler ‘feels good’ about offering to leave for Bayleigh and Da’Vonne
While Tyler has been a fan-favorite, many fans didn’t like him offering to leave for the Black Lives Matter movement only to reverse his decision. They felt like it was “performative activism” and believed he pretended to be an ally for the cause for the Live Feeders as he knew Christmas would not send him home.
After leaving the house, Tyler did a few post-eviction interviews where the reporters asked him about his offer to go home. The BB20 runner-up refused to answer for Entertainment Weekly but told Parade his heart wasn’t in the game at the time.
He also wanted to “repair” his relationship with Bayleigh because they got into a heated argument during their original season. Additionally, Tyler noted he prioritized his friendship with Bayleigh over the game. Therefore, he doesn’t “have any regrets.”
Tyler closed by reiterating that he “feels good” about his decision to offer to leave and insisted he never changed his mind. However, the fan-favorite realized it wouldn’t make sense for Christmas’ game to backdoor him. Therefore, Tyler decided to wake up and start playing.
While he wishes he “could have done more,” ultimately, the BB20 runner-up still “feels good about everything that happened” and is “proud” of himself. Big Brother 22: All-Stars airs Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 8/7c on CBS.
