The Big Brother 2021 finale night is coming up very quickly and that’s when we find out which member of the BB23 cast wins the $750,000 prize.

There are only three people left in the running and they are Xavier Prather, Azah Awasum, and Derek Frazier.

For one of them, their life is about to change in a big way.

Second place still walks away with $75,000 this summer, so just making it to the final two comes with a hefty prize. And there have also been numerous Big Brother rumors about everyone in the top five getting bonuses this year.

On top of those prizes, there is also the $50,000 award going to America’s Favorite Houseguest. Voting is still open for Big Brother fans to help reward their favorite player of the summer.

What will happen on the Big Brother 23 season finale?

A lot is going to take place on the Wednesday, September 29 episode of Big Brother 23. CBS gave the show two hours since there is so much ground to cover. It means host Julie Chen Moonves also won’t be rushed to get through the content in that allotted time.

At the beginning of the episode, Julie will welcome in Big Brother fans and then we are going to find out who won Part 2 of the final Head of Household Competition. We saw on Big Brother 23, Episode 36 that Xavier Prather won Part 1, so this is a battle between Azah Awasum and Derek Frazier.

For readers who want to jump ahead, here are the Big Brother spoilers about Part 2.

As the show rolls on, we are going to get to see the first seven members of the BB23 jury taking part in the jury roundtable for the summer. This is where the members of the jury debate about who should win the show and who played the best game.

During the jury roundtable, we will get to see Kyland Young join them, as he is now the eighth member of the BB23 jury. He didn’t go to the jury house this summer, so the jury roundtable will be the first time that many of them learn he has been evicted. The debate will then continue about how the season progressed.

Later in the episode, Julie will invite the first eight members of the jury to come to the stage and she will ask them questions about the season.

The first five members of BB23 will also return, possibly through live video again. That’s when Big Brother fans will get to see Whitney Williams, Brandon “Frenchie” French, Christian Birkenberger, Travis Long, and Brent Champagne for the first time in quite a while.

The first five evictees will also get to talk a bit about the season, but that segment typically ends up feeling really rushed.

At some point, Part 3 of the final HOH Competition will be played, with the winner then deciding who they want to sit with them in the final two. The person finishing in third place will then go out to join the BB23 jury.

Time to name the Big Brother 23 winner

Once there are only two people left, the BB23 jury will take turns asking questions of the two houseguests. After that, the final two people will give statements about why they feel they deserve the $750,000, and then the BB23 jury will place votes for who they think should be the Big Brother 23 winner.

In the final segment of the episode, Julie will read off the votes and confetti will drop on the Big Brother 23 winner. And in the final moments of the night, Julie will reveal who has been named America’s Favorite Houseguest this summer.

The above list of events that will take place on Big Brother 2021 finale night won’t necessarily go in that specific order, and there could be some bonuses worked in, but it is going to be two hours that are jam-packed with content.

Big Brother 23 finale airs Wednesday at 9/8c on CBS.

  1. ANY alliance solely based on skin color targeting another skin color is racism and entirely unacceptable. By definition this is racial discrimination. Period.

    As for the first black winner, first of all, it was the US media, literally the entire media, rejoicing over Tamar Braxton winning BB USA in 2019. Do a search and see for yourself, the headlines in 2019 were the same as they are today in 2021, and I quote: “Tamar Braxton Wins ‘Big Brother,’ Becomes U.S. Version’s First Black Winner”. Not my words, but the words of the the very same media networks that are sensationalizing this absurdity again today. Big Brother is Big Brother is Big Brother, “celebrity” or not, they’re playing the exact same game, same house, same rules, same host and runs every year. Bottom line, it is absolutely ridiculous to claim a first in history twice. Only in America.

    Secondly, Big Brother is not a US show. CBS does not own Big Brother, they license it. If looking at the entire BB franchise history, indeed there have already been hundreds of black winners. Women. Asian. POC. Whites. Gay. All of the above. I personally watched the Canada and Australia versions in 2021, both of which had black winners. Neither of which achieved the win based on any racist alliances, “victim” sympathy votes or even so much as a mention of skin color – they did so on their own individual merit – the way the game is meant to be played.

    CBS clearly has violated the BB franchise as well as their very own rules for this season and this season only. Why is that? It is a disgusting double standard and this is why people are ticked off. Also, if a white man ever called a black women “F**k that B**ch!”, not once, but multiple times and then proceeded to confront and threaten her, he would have been yanked from the show immediately (they have done this in past seasons already) and the black community as well as US media would have gone completely bonkers over it. But because the perpetrator is black and gay, none of that happened did it. In fact, nothing at all was said or done about it! Somehow he is immune to accountability. This is even more reason why people are ticked off.

    Ultimately, this season, which has the lowest ratings of any season of BB USA, has set a new precedent, a dangerous one, opening the door to race wars in future seasons that inevitably will be the downfall of the US version of the game and further damage race relations in America. If that is even possible, considering just how bad it is today. Lets face it, racism is big business in America. People, majority of which are dark skinned, are going to propagate and profit from it to no end. Pathetic as it may be, without anti-white racism, tens of millions would have no income and no purpose in life.

    You seem to think black people are owed something here, lets look back at history in America, African American “Buffalo Soldiers” are equally responsible for the extermination of native American indians, as well as discriminating against white immigrants in the early 20th century and therefor are not immune to accountability for their actions. They did to others precisely what they claim whites did to them. The epitome of hypocrisy. And now that CBS is claiming “diversity”, where are the native Indian cast members then anyway? I digress.

    Big Brother US and CBS are despicable for not only allowing, but encouraging such reprehensibly disgusting behavior.

    100% impartialence!
