Azah Awasum in Big Brother, Her Thoughts

Like every other contestant, Azah is coming to the house with competition in mind. When asked about her strategy to win the game, she talked about spotting the power players early on and “annihilate or divide them one by one.”

“Play for MYSELF, not the house. I’m hoping my amiable appearance will cause the guests to let their guards down with me. I want every Houseguest to feel like they have me in their pocket. Finally, I make really good decisions as long as there is no romance involved. NO SHOWMANCES!” - Azah Awasum on her CBS bio

Apparently, Azah is not fond of showmances at all. Instead, she has a soft spot for duos. Her favorite duo in the history of Big Brother is Alison and Jun from BB4 who “dominated the house with loyalty only to each other.” Azah also hopes to find a powerful partner in the house and hopefully be with them in the final two.

While she has planned her strategy, Azah is also aware of the things that might bring a certain level of difficulty while living in the house, like being without her phone and not having her close ones there with her. “I’m lucky to have most of my family in the area with me,” she said. “I’m going to miss them and my seven best friends.”

Azah also has some favorite moments from Big Brother throughout the season. When asked, she said that “Keisha’s birthday in BB10 is hands down one of my favorites!” For her, there were too many iconic moments like “Libra screaming her accolades to Jerry, Jessy instigating, Dan staying out of trouble, that sad “Happy Birthday” after everyone just finished screaming at each other.” Azah called it classic.

Most noticeably, Azah is looking forward to getting to compete in OTEV, since she claims herself to be a beast at musical chairs. 


  • Azah loves cooking, claiming it to be one of her favorite pastimes. 
  • She loves to travel and has counted down 26 countries on her list.
  • Her life motto is “You haven’t started living until you’ve started living for others.”
  • Her name “Azah” means “able to make friends.”
