Kaitlyn Sara Herman[2] was a houseguest on Big Brother 20 (US).

A major presence in the game, Kaitlyn was seen as an erratic and emotional person by her fellow houseguests. Early on, Kaitlyn co-founded the FOUTTE alliance with the people she felt closest to in the house. However, in the same week in which her alliance was formed, she flipped on them after Tyler Crispen convinced her that her alliance did not trust her. She later successfully backdoored former ally Swaggy C during her HOH reign.

When Sam Bledsoe won HOH during Week 4, Kaitlyn became the target for eviction. Caught in a love triangle with Faysal Shafaat and Haleigh Broucher, Kaitlyn was blindsided when Faysal used the veto to save Haleigh instead of her. Kaitlyn would later be evicted in a 9-1 vote that week, due to her fellow houseguests seeing her as a bigger threat over replacement nominee Rockstar Lantry. Kaitlyn did get a chance to return to the game due to Sam's Bonus Life power app. However, she failed to complete the puzzle she was given and was officially evicted. She came in 13th place.


Kaitlyn Herman Biography

Age: 24
Hometown: Plainview, NY
Current city: Encino, CA
Occupation: Life coach
Three adjectives that describe you: Personable, intuitive, and dramatic.
Favorite activities: Taking Pure Barre classes, meditation, and watching reality television.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house?
Not having my crystals, essential oils, yoga mat, books, or my journal. I have my daily rituals for self-love and I would have to come up with new ways to make time for myself.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most?
My favorite Big Brother Houseguest was Victor Arroyo from Season 18. I know that's kind of shocking. But I was just always rooting for him—especially when he got back in the house after winning the Battle Back. He was such a good competitor and had such a beautifully sweet side to him. I just loved his energy so much as a human being and genuinely enjoyed watching his journey. Plus, he and Nicole are literally a match made in heaven.
Do you have a strategy for winning the game?
I do. I'm going to use my intuition, my sensitivity to energy, and my messages from my guides to help me direct which way to move throughout the house. I plan to be that person that creates a sense of calm in the house, instead of bad energy.
My life's motto is...
Everything is happening for the highest good of every person.
What would you take into the house and why?

  • My crystal.
  • Essential oils/diffuser.
  • My journal. All of these things have transformed my quality of life so much. I'm all about good vibes and positive energy and all three of those things help me feel zen.

Fun facts about yourself:

  • I'm often caught sleeping with my eyes open, which is terrifying for those I live with.
  • Years ago, I went to a psychic medium with the hopes of connecting with my deceased grandfather, but the medium surprised me by revealing I would soon be one of the most influential self-help women in the world.
  • If I sense bad energy with family or friends I will (without invitation) start to sage them until the negativity is cleared.
  • I have a blog called From Betches To Buddhas.[3]
