Why was Travis Long eliminated? 'Big Brother' Season 23 star blames his 'White guy abs'
Travis Long is the first to get eliminated on 'Big Brother' Season 23 and incidentally, he blamed his 'White guy abs' for it
It's always the White guy with the abs who leaves first. Those aren't our words, but Travis on Season 23 of 'Big Brother' seems to feel that's the way elimination works on the show. Travis found himself out of the 'Big Brother' house where he was questioned on his tactics in the house, including not forming any alliances, and what he would perhaps do differently.
Travis, who is a tech sales consultant, had described his strategy on 'Big Brother' Season 23 earlier as: "Forming close one-on-one relationships with people behind the scenes, limiting yet utilizing my charismatic personality to connect with people but also not going too over the top with my friendliness and openness so I can cruise a bit under the table in group settings." However, his strategy clearly didn't work. Fans were quite surprised by Travis' White guy with abs comment. If you're a fan of 'Big Brother', then you will probably enjoy other elimination reality shows such as 'Love Island'.
One fan tweeted, "HOLD UP...TRAVIS DID NOT JUST SAY THE REASON HE WAS EVICTED WAS "THE WHITE GUY WITH ABS ALWAYS GETS THE FIRST BOOT"...... #BB23."
Another fan concurred tweeting, "Excuse me but where did you hear the white guy with abs gets targeted first #BB23."
Another fan couldn't believe that Travis actually believed what he was saying tweeting, "now travesty you know damn well “the white guy with abs” rarely ever goes first #BB23."
It seems like fans weren't the only ones surprised by this comment. Some fans picked up the surprise on host Julie Chen's face as well. One fan tweeted, "White guy with abs always goes first” *Julie Chen Moonves:* #bb23 #BB23 #BigBrother."
Fans didn't seem to be exactly heartbroken over Travis' exit and they had even more reason to cheer when Kyland became head of the household on the show this week. One fan tweeted, "KYLAND WENT FROM BEING ON THE BLOCK TO WINNING HOH AND SAFETY FOR HIS WHOLE TEAM HE IS THAT MAN!!! #bb23."
Another fan tweeted, "This is the first time a black person has won HOH since Bayleigh in BB20! #BB23."
With fan favorites such as Kyland, Tiffany and Claire safe and another elimination looming next week, the question is who will be the next to be axed from the 'Big Brother' house. To find out you can tune in to the next episode of 'Big Brother' next Thursday on CBS.
