Is it over for Big Brother’s first trans houseguest?


Big Brother 17 first trans houseguest audrey middleton

It looks like Thursday might be the last day in the house for Big Brother’s first trans houseguest, Audrey Middleton.

[EDITOR’S NOTE: The remainder of this article may contain Big Brother 17 spoilers, please read ahead with caution at your own risk!]

Audrey came out to her houseguests as trans the moment she met each of them, and some of her fellow players seem to think it helped her game. Her former ally, Da’Vonne Rogers, even said that was why some in the game were afraid to evict her from the Big Brother 17 house.

Audrey and Da’Vonne formed an all-girl alliance with Shelli Poole on their first day in the house. That alliance quickly fell apart when Audrey got busted lying by Da’Vonne, but Shelli chose to protect Audrey over Da’Vonne sending “Mama Da” packing early in the game.

Shelli even formed a new alliance with five other members in the house including her showmance Clay Honeycutt, the twin twist Liz and Julia Nolan along with several other power players.  They didn’t rope Audrey into the #sixthsense alliance, but they did try and protect her. Until she went too far.  Their main goal seemed to be to use her as the target that everyone was gunning for as long as they could, but her actions keep getting more and more volatile.

Over the past week, Audrey’s paranoia set in and really made the super alliance nervous.  She even had a very public fight with Clay who seems to be Shelli’s King each time she is crowned House of Household.

When another one of their alliance members, openly lesbian player Vanessa Rousso, won the Power of Veto this week and used it to say openly gay player Jason Roy… Shelli replaced him on the chopping block by nominating Audrey for eviction.  For the first time in history, the presumptive nominee chose not attend the Power of Veto meeting.

Since she realized she was being evicted, Audrey has laid so low that she has has hardly been seen on the 24/7 live feeds from within the house.  When she does leave her hiding place (which seems to be the have-nots room), she is covered with a blanket, hoodie and sunglasses.

Many have suspected that Audrey’s absence means she has quit the game, but since she has not officially walked out the door…. so she’s still a houseguest.

The interesting thing is that this all could turn around for Audrey by Thursday night’s eviction vote.  So far, most people have agreed to keep her in the house since she has a big target on her back.  Using her when needed could really benefit many of the player’s game, especially the #sixthsense alliance.  That means tonight, they could decide to vote out the other nominee for eviction, John McGuire (aka Johnny Mack), who has also helped the #sixthsense alliance by throwing competitions whenever asked.

This could be a nail biter or it could be the quick end to the first trans player in Big Brother history.  No one will know until Thursday at 9pm EST when Big Brother 17 airs live on CBS.
