History was made on the reality television show Big Brother.
Taylor Hale, the 2021 Miss Michigan USA champion, won the competition becoming the first Black woman to do so in the show's 24 seasons.
Hale, will take home the $750,000 grand prize, and she also won America's Vote for favorite houseguest, taking home an extra $50,000.
“I am someone who has won three competitions, but I am so much more than the wins I’ve had,” Hale told the jury as she stated her case as to why she should win. “Monte may have more blood on his hands than me, but as someone who has sat on this eviction block six times on eviction night, I have bled out the most in this game, but I have bandaged myself together every single time and gotten up and continued to fight because like so many other women in the world, that’s what we have to do to get to the end.”
