Elena Davies was the second Big Brother houseguest to be evicted on Thursday’s (August 17) episode. We spoke with Elena before she went to the jury house about Jason’s cowardly decision not to put up Paul and what it was like competing during the veto competition with her ally Mark. (Click here to read the exit interview with Cody.)
Despite being the one who ended up being evicted, do you think Jason made the right decision by putting you up or did he take the easy way out?
Jason absolutely took the easy way out. He stated in the orange room to Mark that if it was a double eviction and he was HOH he was going to go after Paul. Which is a maverick move and something that would have been fun to watch and be a part of. But it was easier and cowardice to go after Mark and me and I think that I’m not discounting my Big Brother game or capabilities in that house, but Paul would have been a more successful evicted houseguest I think. I think that move would have been a more badass move, but I guess Jason doesn’t want to be a badass!
What do you think it will take for the house to finally turn on Paul? Who do you think will turn on him first?
Probably, Alex and Jason — Kevin has no idea where he is. I think and hope that Mark makes some big moves in the house this week. If it’s not him, it will be Alex and Jason that do it. Matt, Rave, Christmas and Josh just kind of float around and exist. So, if anything happens it’ll be by the hands of Alex, Jason or Mark. I’m rooting for that.
What was going through your mind during the veto competition? How hard was it? Did playing the competition during a double eviction make it harder to concentrate?
The second Julie said double eviction, I forgot who was President. I knew I was going home that night, I just knew. So, playing in the veto comp was especially challenging. I had more adrenaline than I think I’ve ever experienced in my life. I was nervous and it sucked being up against Mark because I knew that if I won the veto he was going home and that was hard for me. There was a lot going through my head.
