Recent evictee Dominique Cooper shares her take on who is going far in Big Brother season 19.

We already know that Julie Chen is very bad at picking potential winners in Big Brother. But one of her bets, Dominique, who was voted out of the house last week, has her own pick for who could win the whole thing.

Speaking to Us Weekly after her eviction, Dominique shared that she thinks Kevin, the 55-year-old stay-at-home dad, could be the one to win the game.

Sure, he has his work cut out for him. The showmances of Jody — Jessica and Cody — and Marlena — Mark and Elena — are strong and Paul remains a powerful puppet master. But despite Jessica’s interest in picking off floaters, Kevin’s odds look good. If he can make it to the 60-day mark, when alliances hit the fan, he could very well win it all.

As Dominque put it, “Kevin will go far. His memory is impeccable and his social game is lit.”

Curiously, live feed viewers report that Kevin spoiled this Thursday’s blindside on Wednesday by telling Jessica that the house planned to vote out Ramses instead of her target and choice, Josh.

His reason for telling her, per Big Brother Network, is because she’s from Boston, which is a very Boston reason:

"Kevin: Listen, the reason I’m telling you is because you’re from Boston and we’re pals. You hear me? Just be cool. Don’t freak out. You’ve gotta keep your composure."

The man is slyly doing something, but his true allegiance — if he’s loyal to anyone — is still to be seen.

Kevin was one of our early picks to do well on Big Brother season 19 and so far he’s lived up to expectations. Viewers were introduced to Kevin as “caring, humorous and charismatic” and the former (1986) Mr. Massachusetts and dunk champion of Boston (1981) has masterly navigated the choppy seas of the temptation theme.

What do you think? How far do you think Kevin will go in BB19?
