Azah Awasum On Big Brother
Big Brother season 23 premieres and Azah Awasum is one of the 16 houseguests who will compete for the grand prize of $500,000. The show included houseguests from different backgrounds such as a flight attendant, a start-up founder, a kindergarten teacher, an attorney, and a forensic scientist.
She has been a fan of the show for a very long time. In her interview with Heavy, she noted that “I can’t stand showmances! I love duos. My favorite ‘Big Brother’ player (Jun) was part of a duo. Alison and Jun from BB4 dominated the house with loyalty only to each other! I hope to get a powerful partner in the house and sit with them in the final two.”
As for her strategy to win the show, Azah shared that, “Spot the power players early 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 Ethnicity
The reality star Azah Awasum and her family are of African-American ethnicity.
Azah Awasum was born to her father Tobias Awasum and her mother Jeannette N Awasum in Baltimore, the United States. Her father attended Sacred Heart College Mankon and graduated in 1980. Later on, Tobias studied Geotechnical Engineering at Howard University in Washington, D.C. He serves as the CEO of Zoe LLC.
As for her mother, Jeanette N Awasum was the former owner of a Home Health Care provider. She was sentenced to prison for 8 months for falsifying records involving a Federal Audit- Audit Involved Medicaid/Medicare Payments in July of 2013.
According to the report on the website of Justice.gov, a statement of offense, signed by the defendant as well as the government, in early June 2010, Awasum, the Chief Executive Officer and owner of Tri-State Home Health and Equipment Service were informed that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services requested the physician-signed plans of care for 130 of its patients. These plans of care are what authorize providers like Tri-State to provide home healthcare services to Medicare and D.C. Medicaid beneficiaries.
Awasum knew that Tri-State lacked plans of care for 62 of these 130 patients. Tri-State received approximately $1,879,853 from Medicare and D.C. Medicaid for treating these 62 patients during the period for which plans of care were missing. Awasum directed her employees to fraudulently create plans of care for the services that these 62 patients received, making it appear as if the documents had been created before the services being provided. In total, the employees created 81 plans of care for these 62 patients.
Awasum instructed one of her employees to take the 81 fabricated forms to a doctor whom Awasum knew never examined these patients. Even though this doctor never examined these patients, he signed the plans of care in June 2010, making it appear as if he authorized these 62 patients to receive home healthcare services before the time that Tri-State provided these services. The employee, at Awasum’s directions, placed the fraudulent 81 plans of care in Tri State’s file so that the forms would be present when the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services audited the services provided to these 62 patients.
