Were you surprised that Claudia originally nominated Daniel and Anika instead of Ty? Or was there a plan to backdoor if him he hadn’t won the Power of Veto?
Yes! There was 100% a plan to backdoor Ty!
In retrospect, it seems silly now, but we believed that if we didn’t put Ty up on the block from the beginning, it might save some face with him moving forward if we weren’t able to backdoor him. We talked about it the day before and right before the nominations ceremony.
What went through your mind when you, Claudia and Renee were initially kept out of the library by the rest of the house?
Oh my gosh, well it seems so ridiculous to have such a big reaction to be left out of a room, but it was truly such an awful feeling. It made us so paranoid that everyone in the house was working against us. It was another event in the house that we felt left out of. It was really devastating.
I’m someone who wears my heart on my sleeve, and I pour so much into my relationships and connections with people. At that moment, it really broke my heart to know that there were people in that room that didn’t want me as a part of something.
It was so sad and devastating. It made me so angry and hurt. When that door wouldn’t frickin’ open, it would just remind me of every moment in my life where I felt excluded or left out. It truly felt like we were the kids on the playground that nobody wanted to play with.
It seems silly but everything in there was so heightened and it was a really heartbreaking moment for us.
Who are you rooting for to win the game? And if it came down between Claudia and Renee? What qualities are you looking for in a winner?
This might come across as a shock to some people, but I’m actually rooting for Daniel C to win the game! I don’t know if that’s because I’m feeling a little bit bitter toward the girls, but if it came down to them, as of right now, I would choose Renee as the winner, but so much can happen in the next couple of weeks that it would really come down to what moves were made, who was the mastermind behind those moves, and who was the strategic force between Claudia and Renee.
As it stands right now, Renee’s journey is the one that really sticks out for me. She has been through the wringer! She’s my dead-last duo! I knew what it was like to be in that position, and she has fought her way to this spot and that is something that I truly respect. Between the two, I’d pick Renee. Overall, in my heart, I am rooting for Daniel though.
Was seeing your mom during the competition this past week your most emotional moment? Was it also your most memorable?
Oh my gosh. Straight off the bat, I can tell you that it was not my most memorable simply for the fact that I hardly remember it! My adrenaline was so high at that moment that I felt like I blocked half of it out.
But it was my most emotional. Seeing my mom ripped my heart in half because it made me realize how much she is willing to do for me and how supportive she is, and how lucky I am to have her as a parent. She flew across the country to see me for maybe 30 seconds! It’s so cool to share that experience with her and if she has a shred of knowledge of what I’ve experienced in this as well.
Most emotional? It was up there. Look, your girl is emotional every day in that house! Most memorable? Definitely not. [Laughs] Because it’s all hazy up in there!
Who are you looking forward to connecting with the most in jury, socially? Who are you looking forward to talking game with the most?
I’m sure it comes as no surprise, but I can’t wait to see Dan. I think seeing him is going to make the jury experience so much easier for me. I really am feeling all types of ways right now and I can’t wait to sit down and talk it through with him.
Game-wise, I’m really looking forward to talking to Kuzie. Ironically, we both got evicted a little dirty by our trios! So, I think actually sitting down with her and talking about all the details of the game in an environment where we don’t have to keep things behind closed doors is really going to be good for both of us!
