Xavier Says He Doesn’t See Him and Kyland Being BFFs
Heavy: Kyland rubbed numerous followers the incorrect means with each the way in which he left the home and the way in which he doubled-down on these feedback final evening. How are you feeling about Kyland now?
Xavier: I spoke with Kyland briefly on finale evening simply letting him know that hey we must always speak and he was like, “Yeah, we must always have a chat man to man” … to debate how I understand what you mentioned and what your intentions had been behind what you mentioned. We ought to have a dialog and focus on it as a result of regardless that I took offense with what he mentioned … Kyland is anyone who I do not know if I make it to these last two chairs with out him. He did assist all members of the Cookout make historical past and that is not one thing I need to simply throw away with out at the least having a dialog, making an attempt to get some form of reconciliation or be capable of transfer away in additional of a constructive gentle.
At least attempt to get some understanding after which our relationship might be what it’s. But we made historical past collectively, as did all members of the Cookout, and I do not wanna simply throw away that relationship. Honestly, I do not anticipate us being BFFs, however I believe we must always have a dialog simply man to man.
Why Did Xavier Work With the Men Over the Women?
Heavy: Let’s discuss alliances. The Cookout was superior and I’m so glad you guys made it to the ultimate six, however why was your sub-alliance all males?
Xavier: The sub-alliance which means my last three with Big D and Kyland? I additionally had a form of unofficial last three with Tiffany and Hannah, after which one other last three with Big D and Azah. I had a last three with nearly each member of the Cookout. Big D and I knew that by preserving Kyland shut, if he received competitions, he would have a look at different individuals moreover myself and Big D was my last two, so my high precedence was preserving him secure.
But I had offers with Tiffany, Hannah, Azah. I used to be completely fantastic working with anyone. That was simply how the playing cards had been dealt when Kyland received HOH at [final] 6. I wanted to ensure he took out arguably the largest risk moreover myself and that was Tiffany. Even although I’m positive the followers would’ve beloved to see doubtlessly Tiffany and I sitting within the last two chairs to duke it out — which the fan in me would’ve beloved that — simply to see what occurs. Because I believe Tiffany performed a superb sport, as did Azah and Hannah. But while you’re in there and also you’re making an attempt to win the sport, [Tiffany] was the largest risk and Kyland was keen to take that shot, in order that’s simply form of what wanted to occur. But it was by no means like “I’m solely gonna work with guys,” I had offers in place with the ladies too, it is simply they did not win so I could not act on that at the moment, at [final] six.
Heavy: Did you throw the ultimate six HOH competitors? I am unable to keep in mind.
Xavier: I simply did not win that one … not my comp. If I had received that, I used to be in truth fascinated by taking an enormous shot. I knew Tiffany was coming for me and I additionally had purpose to get Kyland out, I used to be doubtlessly fascinated by placing each of them up, and let’s examine what occurs? But Kyland received, so at that time, it was form of the deal that I’ve to maneuver ahead with to guarantee that Big D and I get slightly nearer to the ultimate two.
Was Xavier Surprised That Tiffany Won America’s Favorite Player?
Heavy: Were you shocked that Tiffany was America’s Favorite Player?
Xavier: No, in no way. Tiffany is a legend. Tiffany and I, from a aggressive standpoint, we had been going at one another. But we’re two aggressive Michiganders. That’s what we do. Either we’re gonna find yourself on the last two or I’m gonna get you otherwise you’re gonna get me. That’s just about the way it goes. But I do know from a sport standpoint, we respect one another’s sport sufficient to know, hey this individual’s an enormous risk to me. The means she performed the sport, her character, Tiffany is 100% a legend and he or she received two HOHs again to again. She’ll ceaselessly be a “Big Brother” legend.
Heavy: I’d’ve beloved to see you two within the last two. I want I might ballot the jury to see who would’ve received!
Xavier: I have never actually seen social media, however I felt like individuals both wished to see myself and Tiffany [in the final two] or possibly myself and Kyland? But I really feel like individuals wished to see myself and TIffany extra as a result of from an general sport standpoint, I believe it will’ve been extra of a toss-up. I believe Tiffany undoubtedly might’ve received or I might’ve received, however I believe it will’ve been extra of a detailed race than me sitting subsequent to Big D. And I do know Tiffany has even mentioned this, I do know she felt like if she took me out and he or she made it to the ultimate two, she was just about assured to win and I felt the identical together with her. So it is simply form of a state of affairs the place if we’re not gonna be a last two, I gotta get you earlier than you get me.
From an general sport perspective, I like the sport she performed.
Xavier Says Alliances Gotta Stop Putting Themselves On Blast
Heavy: What was most spectacular in regards to the Cookout was the way you performed the sport like a sport of phone. It was so beneath the radar.
Xavier: I gotta say, in previous “Big Brother” seasons once they do the entire “OK, let’s get all eight of us within the room,” while you’re in the home, that is simply silly! Everyone in that home can see hey, half the home is not right here! Someone’s in HOH proper now … that idea to me is simply not helpful to anybody’s sport. You put your alliance on blast or you need to meet at ungodly instances and I used to be identical to no. Let’s simply — I’ll speak to you, you speak to them, after which we’ll all get collectively and evaluate notes and ensure we’re all on the identical web page and it labored fairly successfully all through this sport.”
Would Xavier Return To ‘Big Brother’ Or Has He Reached the Pinnacle?
Heavy: Would you come to “Big Brother” in the event that they requested you?
Xavier: Uh, I believe I’ll undoubtedly take a break for a short while … future seasons, we’ll should see. I’ll come again in the event that they did like a season 14 coaches factor. I’d like to come back again and possibly be a coach with Tiffany, have us each be coaches in the home. I believe that will fairly cool. … I’m a coach, TIffany’s a coach after which we now have our groups assault one another. It can be a lot enjoyable.”
“Big Brother” returns this winter with a 3rd movie star version, then season 24 ought to return in the summertime of 2022.
