Big Brother USA champion Xavier Prather made history by beating Derek Frazier in the final this week.

Now $750,000 richer, the show's first-ever African-American winner spoke to Us Weekly about his accomplishment.

"To be the winner of Big Brother is already a tremendous honour. So to be not only a winner of Big Brother but now the first Black winner in BB US history is an amazing feeling," he said.

"I came in the season having my own personal reasons to win, but I also wanted to crown a Black winner for the culture," he went on to add.

"And to be that person, that representative, for the game and the Black community is amazing. It's a great feeling and something I'll never forget."

Further along the interview, Prather revealed how he plans to spend that great big wad of cash.

"First and foremost, I want to set some money aside for my nephew," he said. "That was my big motivation coming into the season outside of helping crown the first Black winner. I made a promise to my brother that I would always do what I can to look after my nephew, if ever I could.

"And with him gone, this helped me kind of keep that promise."
