That was fast. After only one day in the “Big Brother” house, 29-year-old photographer David Alexander was eliminated from the game. This Atlanta, Georgia resident ended up falling victim to the BB Camp Director twist, in which Jackson Michie banished David, Cliff Hogg, Jessica Milagros and Kemi Fakunle to the wilderness. While the other three all found their way back to Camp BB, David got lost in the woods and was eliminated … at least “for now,” as Julie Chen Moonves hinted that he may get the chance to re-enter the game at a later point.
While David didn’t get an official exit interview with Julie like all of the normally evicted players, he did say a few parting words in the Diary Room. “I don’t want to go home,” he declared through tears. “The reason I wanted to win and the reason I wanted to compete and be on this show? I wanted to be the first black person to win ‘Big Brother.'” While earlier this year Tamar Braxton won “Celebrity Big Brother” Season 2, David is correct that no black person has ever won the main series.
David continued on, “I wanted to represent African-American culture in a different light. I wanted to show that.” He then remarked how “there’s still some hope” that he can return to the house because of Julie’s ominous message.
At the end of the episode, Julie teased more about what might happen with the eliminated houseguest, announcing, “David may be out of the game but you haven’t seen the last of him. Something that has never happened before on ‘Big Brother’ will happen live next Wednesday.” She’s referring to the live July 5 episode that will feature the first official eviction of Season 21. Might the remaining houseguests be voting David back into the house at the same time they’re voting someone out?
David was originally told by Jackson that he was going to be banished as a pawn, but David was hesitant to go along with the plan. “The fact that he’s considering me as a pawn, it’s not cool,” David noted at the time. “How many times has a pawn gone home?” Jackson banished him anyway and then pleaded in secret that he wouldn’t be able to find his way back to Camp BB because he’d have revenge on his mind. The good news for Jackson is that things seemed to have worked in his favor … for now.
