Big Brother 23: Josh Martinez Calls Xavier ‘Villain Of The Cookout’
Big Brother 19 winner Josh Martinez is calling Xavier Prather “the real villain of the Cookout” within the BB23 game. Fans were introduced to Josh on BB19, where he competed as a 23-year-old haircare salesperson from Miami, Florida. During the show, Josh got involved in the Misfits alliance alongside Paul Abrahamian and Christmas Abbott. All three of them got to Final 3, with Josh and Paul advancing to Final 2. At the grand finale, Josh beat out Paul by a jury vote of 5-4.
In 2021, Xavier was chosen to compete on Big Brother 23. He introduced himself to fans as a 27-year-old attorney from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but he never told his fellow co-stars about his legal career. Instead, Xavier has pretended that he’s a working model. In turn, Xavier formed the Cookout alliance on BB23 along with Azah Awasum, Derek Frazier, Hannah Chaddha, Kyland Young, and Tiffany Mitchell. Some fans have seen Xavier as the glue that’s keeping the Cookout together, but other viewers and former players have different opinions.
As seen below, Josh has shared a tweet claiming that Xavier is “the real villain of the Cookout” alliance. The BB19 winner apologized to some of the producers that he personally knows from being in the Big Brother community for so long, but he still made himself heard. Josh then poked fun at himself and his reality TV reputation. “This is coming from someone you may consider a villain [wink emoji] [laugh emoji],” he wrote. Meanwhile, it now seems like the Cookout is fracturing inside the BB23 house, but all six alliance members might still get to Final 6 together.
A lot of fans shared their own thoughts in response to Josh’s tweet, with responses varying between agreeing and disagreeing. Many within the fandom are seemingly convinced that Xavier, Kyland, and Tiffany will get far into the season. On the other hand, Hannah has a lot of fans, while other viewers believe that Azah and Derek F. have the potential to go further on the show. Otherwise, certain fans criticized Josh’s BB19 journey, claiming that he only won the show due to a bitter jury that passionately disliked Paul. There were commenters that also threw shade at Josh’s Big Brother hot takes.
Xavier is still extremely well-positioned to go far on Big Brother 23 and perhaps even win the game. With that said, Xavier is a competition beast with an incredible social game, which is prompting certain houseguests to want to send him to the jury house sooner rather than later. Alas, only time will tell if Xavier will beat his fellow Cookout allies.
Big Brother 23 airs Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 8 p.m. EST/PST on CBS.
