The Aug. 4 episode showed the houseguests having to vote Taylor or Nicole Layog out. Taylor addressed how she’s been treated in her speech.

“To my friends and family at home, I know it’s been difficult watching my experience in this house,” she said. “Thank you, and I promise you it ain’t over until it’s over. Nicole, to quote a Big Brother super fan, Rihanna, ‘You look so dumb right now.’ Choosing me as your Festie Bestie you thought was your security blanket. But here you are. Both of us sitting on the chopping block because your closest ally in the house, who thought you would still be safe.” 

“To the houseguests, if you keep me in this game, you always understood where I stand,” she continued. “I never covered any tracks. I never tried to misguide or mislead any of you. If you keep Nicole, you’ll have someone that thinks they can manipulate your game and wrap you around their finger to get what they need. It’s not the game I choose to play moving forward. You’ll always know where I stand. I love you all, including you, Nicole, and I wish everyone the best.”

Nicole was evicted with a vote of nine to one. Daniel Durston was the sole vote to keep her.
