There was a big blow-up fight on Wednesday night between fan-favorite contestant Taylor Hale and not-so-fan-favorite, Daniel Durston.
For those who haven’t kept up with the house’s 24/7 live feeds, there has been a lot of controversy over the cast’s treatment of Taylor as viewers have taken to social media with accusations of micro-aggression towards her from the other side. . house guests. However, TSWT never aired any of the cases. That’s until Wednesday night’s episode, when Nicole misinterpreted Taylor’s genuine kindness for passive aggressiveness and then shared that false story with other house guests.
Nicole went to this week’s Power of Veto competition and had a plan to pitch the competition so this week’s HOH, Matt Turner, could replace his eviction nominees with Nicole and Taylor (currently called “Festival Besties” ) to Taylor and send her home. However, Nicole said the only bad thing about her plan was that she hates giving a contest, even if it means winning her. That inner struggle for her eventually led to her sobbing in a room alone.
Not knowing why Nicole was crying, the house guests began to think that Nicole had received some bad news about her mother’s cancer. Taylor, the empathy she is, started to feel sad for Nicole when she shared, “I don’t know the details. She doesn’t have to tell me the details, but I know she’s in pain. I just want her to understand that if I see she’s in pain, the game doesn’t matter to me. I only care about her well-being and what’s best for her.”
Still assuming that Nicole’s tears were related to personal news at home, Taylor entered Nicole’s room to advise her on what to do and what was best for her, even if that meant “staying out of the fray.” ‘. This didn’t sit well with Nicole, who thought Taylor was “passive-aggressive” and “projected negative energy” onto her, while also trying to sabotage her game.
Nicole immediately went to Daniel and told him that Taylor told her, “If you decide you want to quit, it’s fine,” to which Daniel replied, “Oh great. I won’t talk to her. She can get off. I’m “I’m mad. Taylor tells her she can leave this game whenever she wants. Taylor tries to manipulate and capitalize on this moment while Nicole is in a vulnerable state.”
Taylor then walked into the room and told Daniel, “Just stop. From this point, just stop. Don’t talk to me until the final.” She thought he was joking and played along, until Daniel escalated and yelled, “You can get away with it right now. Don’t you think America is watching all this? Don’t you think so? Talk to me.” Taylor was super confused, so she followed Daniel into another room to clean up, but Daniel wouldn’t even allow Taylor to speak.
“No, stop. I’ll never forget what you did to Paloma. Do you think she didn’t spiral because of you? You didn’t add anything to that? And now you’re trying to do it to Nicole, the brain games? So don’t talk to Nicole, never again,” Daniel told Taylor.
As you can imagine, BB fans were outraged by Daniel’s aggression towards Taylor and many of them found it hard to even watch.
But most of all, everyone just agreed that Taylor doesn’t deserve to be treated this way, including some of the house guests, who later pulled Taylor into the HOH room to tell her they think the rest of the house bullied her and that they are ready to put an end to it.
“Just because you’re strong there’s no reason for us to test how strong you are,” Joseph Abdin told Taylor as the alliance now known as “The Leftovers” united, including Taylor.
Big Brother broadcast on Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday at 8 p.m. TSWT.
