Bayleigh Dayton Says She & Husband Swaggy C Were Typecast for 'Big Brother'

Bayleigh Dayton is opening up about her time on CBS’ Big Brother, where she revealed that the show typecast her and future husband, Chris “Swaggy C” Williams.

The 26-year-old former Miss Missouri spoke on The Challenge Mania podcast about appearing on the long-running show’s 20th season.

“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,’” Bayleigh shared. “I know I’m the only black girl that’s going.”

She added, “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.”

Bayleigh was able to become the first member of the jury that season before going on to secure a Head of Household win. Swaggy, however, was one of the first people to leave.

The duo faced a lot of racist remarks on the show as well.

During their time on the show, Bayleigh revealed she got pregnant in the house, but suffered a miscarriage.

During the podcast, Bayleigh also addressed her Challenge co-star Dee Nguyen comments about Black Lives Matter.

“Never once did I send it to MTV or anything like that. I wasn’t really expecting for all of this to happen,” she says. “But with the number of complaints that they received, they decided to make a decision that was best for them. I’m not, like, malicious. I’m not trying to rub it in. I just felt like enough was enough and we had to actually use our platforms for something positive.”
