By greatbritton

Taylor Hale has made history after she became the Big Brother house champion and $800,000 richer.

According to The Detroit News, Hale’s victory on Sunday night meant that she became the first Black woman to win the CBS reality show since its first premiered over two decades ago. Hale’s houseguests delivered a vote that earned the 27-year-old winner a $750,000 cash prize and an additional $50,000 for being named America’s Favorite Houseguest, a fan-voted award. Hale became the first Big Brother winner to win America’s Favorite Houseguest prize.

Hale defeated personal trainer Monte Taylor and Matthew Turner, a thrift store owner from Massachusetts.

During her impassioned pitch to the nine-member jury, Hale talked about her resilience during her 82 days in the Big Brother house. She mentioned the numerous evictions and the bullying she faced at the hands of her housemates earlier in the season.

“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 is what we have to do to get to the end,” Hale explained, according to the Daily Mail.

“I’m more than my wins in this game. I have overcome so much in this game and I have come to understand that I am not a shield, I am a sword,” she added.
