‘Big Brother’: Bayleigh Dayton Makes Claim About She and Swaggy C’s Casting on the Show
Big Brother is not the only reality television series that married couple Bayleigh Dayton and Chris “Swaggy C” Williams have appeared on. With both of them on The Challenge, Dayton recently revisited her time on Big Brother in a new interview.
Bayleigh Dayton and Swaggy C were buzzy on their season and are rumored for All-Stars 2
Both Williams and Bayleigh Dayton were on the 20th season of Big Brother. On the show, they were a popular couple duo even though Williams was voted off early in the competition. The two were also subject to racism and microaggressions in the house. They also received a lot of racist attacks online and on social media from people who viewed the show. After Willams left the show, Dayton was able to stay for several more weeks, winning a Head of Household competition and becoming the first houseguest to become a member of the jury.
After the show, they remained strong since the conclusion of the show. As you know if you watched their season, they got engaged during the season finale. After getting engaged, the duo secretly got married. They also made the move from Kansas City, which is Bayleigh’s hometown, to Los Angeles.
Following in the footsteps of many other alumni from Big Brother, the two participated in the 35th season of MTV’s The Challenge. Dayton still remains on the show but Williams exited from the show in the twelfth episode.
Both Dayton and Williams have been rumored to participate in the upcoming All-Stars season of Big Brother, though Williams has denied that he will be on there.
She opened up recently about being a Black contestant on ‘Big Brother’
On a recent episode of The Challenge Mania podcast, Dayton was a guest and talked about her experience on Big Brother. She talked about how Black contestants are cast on the show due to how casting producers perceive, insinuating that people are cast on the series with stereotypes in mind.
“That’s the whole point. When I got called for Big Brother, the first thing they said to me was like, ‘Hey, you’re top 25, but that doesn’t mean top 25 black girls so get ready to go,’” she said. “I know I’m the only black girl that’s going.”
She continued, “They have to fill certain roles. On top of that, there’s certain black people that they don’t want to cast in these roles because they’re gonna be put in situations that might make them feel uncomfortable. So I had to make sure to communicate that, ‘Hey, I’m used to being in uncomfortable situations, it’s OK.’ But that’s not something somebody should have to communicate.”
Despite the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Big Brother‘s latest season is expected to premiere sometime later this year on CBS.
