‘Big Brother’ Houseguest Kyle Capener Blasted By Fans For Dividing Housemates By Race

Kyle wants to turn against his own alliance but his intentions appear to be motivated by race.

(Fwrd Axis) — Have the leftovers already spoiled on Big Brother? They will if houseguest Kyle Capener has anything to say about it.

The leftovers alliance formed during week three, leading to that epic blindside of Ameerah Jones and most recently, sending Nicole Layog home. However, it now seems one of the members of the alliance is now wavering and debating turning against one of their own but their intentions appear to be motivated by race.

Note: The rest of the article contains spoilers about upcoming episodes of Big Brother. You have been warned.

During the late night hours of August 5, Kyle spoke to Head of Household Michael Bruner about wanting to work with Michael, Brittany Hoopes, Matthew Turner, and his showmance Alyssa Snider. Kyle doesn’t want to go against Monte Taylor or Joseph Abdin, so he rather they go sooner rather than later. What has fans seething is that Kyle grouped the POC houseguests, suggesting they are all in an alliance similar to the Cookout from Big Brother 23.

“I would not mind if Daniel goes. He has not been someone that I’ve trusted in this game,” Kyle said. “But that possibility of those six with that background, I mean, it looks very similar to the Cookout with a very diverse background. They’ve all expressed why they’re in this game. Joseph, more Middle Eastern representation in TV. Indy, there’s never been a Brazilian contestant or winner.

Everyone has those strong ‘why’s’ that all coincide. I look at our alliance and it’s like, it was great because it was based out of necessity and our backs were against the wall and that’s what brought us together. Take away that necessity or the fear of a bigger alliance out there … I don’t know. That’s my biggest fear right now.”

Kyle wants to form an alliance with Alyssa, Turner, Brittany, and Michael would mean it is an all-white alliance, leaving them going after the minority housemates. So far, three of the four evicted housemates on the current 24th season of Big Brother have been POC and it has fans worried the trend will continue.

Over the past 24 hours, fans have expressed their anger and disappointment on social media with “Kyle” “KKKyle” and “Cookout” all trending topics in the United States.

“They share very common purposes for being in this game,” Kyle told Michael about the POC houseguests in the house.

On Saturday, he added more fuel to the fire in a conversation with Michael and Brittany in the Head of Household bedroom, suggesting Monte has a final two with every POC houseguest despite having no evidence to support his claims.

“Monte and Ameerah from Day 1 had a final two. His reasoning was she is a strong African American woman that’s intelligent that he wanted to help and represent the season,” Kyle said. “Hearing his reasons why…he might view a Terrance final two, a Jasmine final two, an Indy final two, a Taylor final two, a Joseph final two…that’s where my concern kind of stems from is his reasoning why he partnered with Ameerah in the first place.”

The news is just the latest scandal to hit the Big Brother house this season. Last month, the show made headlines when fans called out the housemates for bullying Taylor Hale, an African American woman who had been ostracized from the house by her fellow housemates.

Hale, a former pageant queen, had been the target of Paloma Aguilar and other houseguests. Hale has been repeatedly referred to as “aggressive” and others have said they fear she will have a tantrum if she doesn’t get her away.

Host Julie Chen Moonves responded to the accusations in a series of interviews, calling out the toxicity of Big Brother fans.

“Microaggressions are real and they happen. I don’t think most people when they are committing it, that they are even aware of what they’re doing. I think that with the live feeds it is easy,” Chen said. “I think what we need to do is ask ourselves, ‘Who am I — who is anyone — to judge somebody else?’”

“We haven’t been in that pressure cooker situation. And a lot of times when someone is feeling insecure about themselves, or seeing another individual as a threat to their game, that’s when you see classic ‘Big Brother’ ‘I’m going to trash talk someone behind his or her back,’” she added.

Big Brother continues Sunday at 8/7c on CBS and streams on Paramount+.
