Big Brother fans were celebrating Thursday night, not because Brandon "Frenchie" French was evicted (although that was great news to some), but because history was made following the live eviction, when Xavier Prather won this week's Head of Household competition.

Xavier winning HOH is a big deal because it is the first time in Big Brother history that two Black contestants won the coveted title back-to-back. Last week being Kyland Young's HOH.

As you can imagine, Big Brother fans, who have already been celebrating the most diverse cast yet, were absolutely thrilled over the historic moment.

Not only does this season feature the most BIPOC contestants in the series' 21 years but, thus far, Season 23 seems to be breaking a lot of traditions. A pleasant change from seasons past, where BB has been slammed and criticized for its notorious reputation for controversies regarding race and predictable alliances and wins.

All five Season 23 Black BB contestants — Azah Awasum, Derek Frazier, Tiffany Mitchell, Kyland, and Xavier — have formed an alliance called "The Cookout," which seems to be one of the strongest alliances, if not the strongest alliance, in the house. And with Travis Long and Frenchie evicted, this season is shaping up to be one of the most fan-rewarding seasons yet.

Big Brother airs Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. on CBS.
