BB23 fans react to ‘The Cookout’

Viewers are still heavily impressed by how the cookout went, and are more bothered about the strategy used for it to be a successful alliance.

Looking through Twitter, many have been getting creative with memes to respond to Big D claiming he started the entire thing.

One shocked fan said: “Did Big D took credit for the cookout!?!?!?!?!?”.

Another wrote: “Correction the cookout carried you (DF) and Azah this far.”

“Congratulations to the first African American Winner of #BigBrother Xavier! The Cookout Alliance controlled this game since Day 1.

“All 6 African American Members made it to the Final 6 and put the goal before themselves. What an outstanding season!”, said a happy fan.

What was BB23’s The Cookout?

The goal this year was to have the first ever Black winner on Big Brother, and was created during the first week of the season.

To keep the alliance a secret, the majority of its members would pair up with someone who was not part of the alliance.

Pairing up meant safety, as there was never a time where two members went on the block, and the alliance had enough numbers to keep them safe in the case of one member being nominated alongside their pair.

They won most of the HOH’s (nine HOH wins), influenced every eviction and nearly every nomination, and evicted all non-members.

So it was definitely what you would call a success – as they accomplished their goal of guaranteeing the first ever Black winner!
