Recall that Laycon was verbally attacked by Erica for refusing to address claims he made about her some days ago.

Erica who seemed to be under the influence of alcohol rained curses on Laycon and also body-shamed him. The angered lady also went as far at issuing threats to his life and urging viewers not to vote for him because he has been manipulative in the house.

The 26 year old earned more than 3 strikes already and a very last warning last weekend. This automatically led to Erica’s disqualification from the show., making her the first head of house to be disqualified in the history of Big Brother house.
