There have been rumors about a “Legends” season of Big Brother, featuring some of the most iconic houseguests to play the game. And after watching Big Brother 24, there’s no doubt that Taylor Hale should be considered among that group of players. However, the winner has some conditions regarding her return to the game.

Taylor won ‘Big Brother 24’

Big Brother 24 began with most houseguests bullying Taylor for simply existing. Notably, Paloma Aguilar, Alyssa Snider, Indy Santos, Jasmine Davis, and Ameerah Jones created an all-girls alliance with Brittany Hoopes that excluded Taylor because she wasn’t a “girls girl.” They wrongly assumed that she would work with the guys and unfairly judged her for being a “pageant girl.”

Soon, a false narrative about Taylor’s personality spread throughout the house, along with multiple microaggressions, and she became the number one target in week one. As the Head of Household, Daniel Durston put her on the block. But Paloma later quit the game, and production canceled the eviction.

Taylor skated by eviction one more week, and in week three, she joined an alliance called the Leftovers. Their dominance in the game gave Taylor the time to work on her relationships and perfect her social game. And by the time the Leftovers broke up, Taylor was in a good spot.

She survived until the finale, and Monte Taylor brought her to the final two. Taylor gave one of the best speeches in Big Brother history, and the jury crowned her the winner in an 8-1 vote.

Would Taylor play ‘Big Brother’ again?

Following her win, Taylor spoke with Entertainment Weekly about returning to Big Brother in the future.

“OK, I need like a couple years. I need a handful of years,” Taylor explained. “I know All-Stars just happened, and I know we need some space between that. So maybe All-Stars.”

She added, “But I’ll have to wait and see if Michael [Bruner] is on that season because that might color if I’m coming back or not. I’m trying to actually win comps. I played nine veto comps, and I didn’t win a single one. I need Michael to not be around so I can win a veto.”

Michael broke the record for most Power of Veto wins in a single season in Big Brother 24 with six wins. He was dubbed the “Veto King,” so it makes sense that Taylor doesn’t want to compete against Michael again. Plus, Taylor experienced a lot of trauma in the Big Brother 24 house. No one could blame her for wanting to take some time before returning.
