[Spoiler alert: Spoilers for Big Brother 23 episode that aired on Aug 8!]
Tiffany accidentally exposed the Royal Flush Alliance
Tiffany has many connections in the house. One of them was the Royal Flush Alliance, which included Team Queens (Tiffany, Claire Rehfuss, Kyland Young), Team Kings (Xavier Prather, Alyssa Lopez, Sarah Beth Steagall, and Christian Birkenberger), and Derek Xiao. They’ve been doing a good job staying under the radar until now.
The Aug 8 episode showed Derek X winning the wall competition. He talked to Tiffany and Hannah Chaddha afterward about his plan. Tiffany told him he needs to consider putting up Christian because he’s a strong competitor. But then there’s the option of sticking with the Royal Flush. This was the first time Hannah has heard about the Royal Flush.
Tiffany left, and Hannah asked what the Royal Flush is. Derek X said it’s an eight-person alliance that was fake and just a cover. Hannah later asked Tiffany about it, and Tiffany asked her who told her about it. Hannah simply said she did, and Tiffany started laughing.
Hannah realized this is why she was on the block last week. She also figured Derek X was offered to be part of the alliance instead of her because he has won competitions. Hannah she was going to keep this information in her back pocket.
‘Big Brother’ fans accuse Tiffany of ‘overplaying’ after exposing the Royal Flush Alliance
It’s usually a good thing to keep alliances a secret. When people outside of them find out about it, then you break trust, and Tiffany recently said she wants to be a final two with Hannah.
“Tiffany is overplaying way too much. #bb23,” one fan wrote. “Tiff is great to watch but her mouth gon get her in trouble #bb23,” another fan tweeted. “Tiffany is running the house which I love, but she’s really doing too much #bb23,” a third fan tweeted.
It’s a tough balance of playing enough to make sure the majority of the people in the house won’t put you on the block. But when you have a lot to juggle you might make a slip like Tiffany’s.
Who did Derek X choose to put on the block?
The episode showed Derek X meeting with everyone in the house. He asked multiple houseguests if they would want to be a pawn this week.
He decided to put Sarah Beth and Britini D’Angelo on the block. Derek X is considering taking out Christian if the veto is used because he’s a huge threat. But either way, it looks like the former Kings are being weakened this week.
Sarah Beth and Christian talked about being shocked about the nominations. It looks like the Royal Flush might be done after all.
