San Diego's Kaycee Clark is not a houseguest on new season of Big Brother

Kaycee said she does not have COVID-19 but wouldn't discuss details about her absence from the all-star season of the show.

SAN DIEGO — The CBS hit show "Big Brother" premiered Wednesday by revealing 16 returning all-star contestants, but one famous houseguest from San Diego wasn't invited. In this Zevely Zone, I spoke one-on-one with Kaycee Clark.

"What's up, Jeff? It's good to see you via Zoom," said Kaycee.

After a two-hour live premiere, some Big Brother fans and I couldn't help but comment on who isn't on the show. 

"So there is an elephant in the room. How can there be a 'Big Brother All-Star' show without the biggest all-star of them all - Kaycee Clark?" I asked. 

"Yeah, that's a huge elephant," Kaycee said. "You know I had my chance and I had my time and I am very thankful to be able to play the game that I absolutely love and then to win the whole entire thing."

Kaycee won Big Brother and $500,000 in 2018, which made us wonder why the show would invite 16 All-Stars back including Kevin Campbell from Chula Vista but not her?

"People think I'm currently sick, I am not sick," said Kaycee. 

"You don't have COVID-19?" I asked.  

"I've been checked by the doctor, the doctor says 'you are A-OK, you are not currently sick,'" Kaycee said. 

Kaycee said she's not ill and she's not living her life with regrets either. 

"I am grateful for what I do have. I already played the game. I already won the game," she said. "I got other things going on. I'm very busy so I was just not supposed to be in there. I truly believe that everything happens for a reason."

Kaycee wouldn't talk about the show's selection process and insisted she is on good terms with Big Brother. 

"Everything happens for a reason. I will say this: 2020 has a sense of humor. 2020 does have a sense of humor and I am excited. I watched the first episode last night and it was amazing. I am sure a lot of 'Big Brother' fans did and I am super excited about it," said Kaycee.

I asked Kaycee who she thinks will win. 

"Tyler. Tyler Crispin is going to win Big Brother 2020," said Kaycee.
