Big Brother Season 23 is in full swing, so if you're behind, don't read through on all the details in this piece!
Big Brother Season 23 was set to have its first blindside of the season, and it had the potential to be huge. Brent Champagne had the idea that the entire house would flip on Xavier Prather's wishes and send Britini D'Angelo home instead of him. He thought the vote would be unanimous, and while he was right, it wasn't in his favor.
Fans were prepared for a massive reaction from Brent, and it would appear the Big Brother staff was as well given time set aside for an extended interview. Yet when the announcement came down, Brent seemed to be so calm, so I had to ask him during our interview why he wasn't shocked when the big blindside came.
Brent Champagne indicated to me that there was no specific person in the house that told him his eviction was coming, but that he knew his time in Big Brother was up based on the body language of other Houseguests around him. Brent referenced that paranoia and constant awareness that Brandon "Frenchie" French and Travis Long both mentioned to me when we spoke about the game, which is to say it's hard to shake the feeling something is off when it actually is.
While Brent Champagne may not have vocalized it the past couple of days in Big Brother episodes or on the live feeds, he had a good feeling ahead of time that he would be the person who was going home. This led to the lack of surprise during the live eviction, which Brent addressed and offered a bit of an apology to viewers for.
Truthfully, Brent Champagne has had about the best attitude towards leaving Big Brother 23 so far. Sure, he's disappointed, but he's looking on the bright side of things, and seemingly not too worried about what he could've done to stay in the game or otherwise. He may not have given America the reaction they wanted, but he did go out with honor and grace, and didn't try to torch anyone's game on the way out of the house. For that, the Houseguests really should be grateful.
Big Brother airs on CBS Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 8:00 p.m. ET. Stay in touch with the game and all that comes after here at CinemaBlend, especially with the big advantage the Kings just got that will certainly impact the house in a major way.
