The Cookout consists of Azah Awasum, Derek Frazier, Hannah Chaddha, Kyland Young, Tiffany Mitchell, and Xavier Prather. And as it stands, the double eviction puts them all in a tough spot.
If one of them wins the Head of Household competition in Week 9 during the first double eviction, they could put Alyssa Lopez on the block. But if she wins the Power of Veto, the Cookout will be forced to put someone up from their own alliance on the block.
On the other hand, if Alyssa wins the HOH, she will have the power to out one of the Cookout members immediately. Whichever way you play it, in Week 10, during the next double eviction, members of the Cookout will be forced to turn on each other.
The best-case scenario is that someone gets Alyssa out of the Big Brother house during the Week 9 double eviction. At the very least, this gets the entire Cookout alliance to the final six, as they wanted all along.
The only caveat is that they’ll have just a week to figure out who gets booted from their own alliance (and the house) first, as they go right into the next double eviction the following week.
