Historic night on ‘Big Brother’ as the season’s Black contestants become the final six

It was an epic and historic night on Big Brother Thursday, starting with the live eviction of Claire Rehfuss, the last remaining white houseguest. With Claire evicted, for the first time in the history of Big Brother, the top seven houseguests were all people of color. However, it didn’t stop there. Thursday’s episode was also a double eviction night, so yet another record was broken, when the season’s longest-standing alliance, “The Cookout,” which is made up of all the Black contestants this season since day one, managed to evict the only remaining non-Cookout houseguest, Alyssa Lopez. With Alyssa evicted, The Cookout survived the entire season with their alliance completely intact and officially became the final six houseguests. On top of achieving the incredible feat of never having a Black contestant evicted the entire season, all of the final six contestants being Black ensures that Big Brother will have its first-ever Black winner. It just took 21 years and 23 seasons to make it happen. This is a huge deal for CBS’s long-running reality show, which is notorious for facing race-related controversy every season. In years past, the show has failed to cast a balanced and diverse group of contestants, and minorities have historically been among the first houseguests to be evicted. However, after CBS vowed in November of 2020 to cast its unscripted reality shows with at least 50 percent BIPOC contestants, Big Brother saw the most diverse cast ever. Twitter was overjoyed Thursday night, with the entire fandom declaring The Cookout the best alliance in BB history, while also recognizing the milestone achievement that Big Brother U.S. now has an entirely Black house for the first time in 21 years.
