Kemi Fakunle didn’t have an easy time on Big Brother. That’s because some of the most powerful people in the house turned against her. One of those people was Jack Matthews.

Jack’s comments had people so worried for her safety that they created a petition to get him removed. “Jack Matthews has said numerous racist things and has been very aggressive towards the only black woman in the Big Brother house, including saying he wants to ‘stomp a mud hole through her chest.’ He needs to be expelled for Kemi’s safety and to show that it’s not okay to be racist in 2019, especially on tv,” read the petition.

The petition wasn’t successful. He went on to have another uncomfortable interaction with Kemi by putting her on blast for having her shaker bottle in the refrigerator.

Eventually, Jack was evicted and he was asked to address his comments about the other houseguests. He claimed that his problem with Kemi wasn’t about race.

Jack said it was “because she said some bad stuff about my both Jack–Michie.” He also addressed the mudhole comment.

“OK, well, I will say that the ‘stomp the mud hole’ comment is based on something that Sam [Bledsoe] said last season when she was frustrated, and I don’t think there was any personal vendetta behind saying that,” he said.

He continued, “I think my statements were playful in a group of people. I do apologize for what I said, and that’s very sincere. I think Kemi was, and is, a great person.”

Fans wanted to vote Kemi for America’s Favorite Houseguests

The winner of Big Brother winner gets $500,000 and America’s Favorite Houseguest voted by the fans gets $25,000.

Many fans this season wanted to rally behind Kemi because of how she was treated by the other houseguests. They also were often talking about her even after she was evicted from the show.

The online campaign to have her win the title continued for some time. However, there seems to be another strong contender for the title now.

Fans now want Nicole Anthony to win

Nicole Anthony really gained some steam at the end of this season. That’s largely because of her alliance with Cliff Hogg III. They made a final four deal with Jackson Michie and Holly Allen.

The preschool aide also started winning more competitions on her own. It looked like she could win the entire season. Her chance lowered when Jackson won the first round of the final week meaning there is just one more spot in the final.

Fans are now switching their strategy to voting for Nicole to win. We will have to wait and see if either of them wins the title in the end.
