‘Big Brother 23’ champ Xavier ‘may be the best ever,’ Julie Chen Moonves says

Not only is Xavier Prather the first Black winner of “Big Brother,” but he’s only the third houseguest to win with a unanimous vote after crushing Derek Frazier 9-0 in the Season 23 finale last week. The other two to do so in a regular “Big Brother” season are Dan Gheesling in Season 10 and Cody Calafiore last year in the second all-stars outing. And if you ask Julie Chen Moonves, X may just be the “BB” GOAT with his quietly dominant game and well-liked personality.

“He’s only the third player to ever get an unanimous win… and in my humble opinion, he may be the best ever to do so,” she told “Entertainment Weekly.” Think about it: The first houseguest to ever do that was Dan Gheesling in season 10 (back then, the jury was only made up of seven people and he got all seven votes). The next time was only last summer when Cody beat Enzo [Palumbo] in ‘All-Stars.’ Cody won in large part because he is a competition beast. The kid is unstoppable and so impressive.
