Big Brother Canada Exit Interview: Todd Clements

todd clements big brother canada exit interview season 12

Todd Clements, the 32-year-old general contractor, from Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador, was the latest houseguest to be evicted on Big Brother Canada. We caught up with Todd before he joins the jury to discuss if not being familiar with the show was an advantage or disadvantage, what he’s looking forward to discussing with jury members, and what qualities he’s looking for in crowning a winner in tonight’s finale.

Do you feel that your lack of Big Brother Canada knowledge was an advantage or disadvantage?

I think an advantage because I had no expectations going in, or what the outcome is going to be. I never had anything to overthink. It was trial and error, and I just went with the flow. Once I found something that worked, I went with it because why fix what’s not broken. So, that’s the route that I decided to take.

Being unfamiliar with the show, what surprised you about being inside the house the most?

I don’t really know what surprised me the most. I guess maybe what surprised me was how well everyone actually got along! Despite having so many different personalities and different type of people, I feel like everyone weirdly flowed pretty well together, which was nice.

We all finished off basically as great friends and I’m sure we’ll be friends outside of the house.

How helpful were your other housemates in explaining some of the show elements and All-Stars?

I actually learned a lot from Victoria, Anthony, Bayleigh, and Donna. We talked throughout the game and there’s been a couple of things that have stuck with me.  Those were the four main people that I asked a lot of questions about the game.

That’s why I always acted a little dumb and oblivious to things and asked them for reassurance all the time! A lot of it, I just didn’t care about. But then there were also some questions that I’d throw in there because it was information that I wanted to know. And it worked.

But then, there came a point where I just knew what to do with myself and do it well. That’s when I started playing a different type of game, or when I had to because I almost got evicted! That hit a little too close to home, so after that, I thought, “Oh, I’d better get started at winning some things and start playing.”

Are you hoping that Kuzie is wrong and that Donna still remembers you?

[Laughs] I think I’m a hard person to forget! I guess we’ll see on finale night if she still remembers me!

Did you and Bayleigh try to work with Lexus to flip her loyalty towards Anthony?

Yes, we did. I think that if Lexus got Anthony out, it would have been a big move for her game. She did with a Veto and then she wasted her HOH by getting somebody no one even knows out.

Anthony has already come second and didn’t touch the block until, literally, yesterday. So, yeah, I think [getting Anthony] out could have been the bigger move on her part and could have paved the way [forward] for her. Who knows, she could still win. But I think that move could have definitely helped her in the end with the jurors.

What are you the most excited to discuss with the other jury members?

To discuss how their experience was and getting to see and meet them outside of the house and find out what was actually going on in the house – because I’ve speculated a lot of things! I want to know if I was actually right or wrong about some of the things that I had observed.

As a member of the jury, what qualities are you looking for in terms of crowning a winner?

Someone who is well-rounded and has played a game that I can respect. Someone who wears their heart on their sleeve. Someone who showed up and showed out.

What was your favourite memory from inside the house?

There wasn’t one particular moment but there have been multiple, like the film festival. It’s also the small things, like meeting everyone [for the first time]. It was the whole experience for me, because I didn’t know what to expect when I came in.

So, everything as a whole. It’s just a beautiful experience for me. It’s something that I’ll cherish for a lifetime.

The season finale of Big Brother Canada airs Wednesday, May 8 at 9:30 p.m. EP/8MT on Global.
