Big Brother scored a hat-trick last night to fill three more seats on this year’s jury. Kevin, David and Danielle saw their All Stars dreams turn into nightmares as Big Brother USA’s first-ever triple-expulsion took effect.
For 58 days, the trio wrestled with the remaining six guests. Now that they’re on the jury, who do they think is playing the best? Danielle and Kevin gave us their answers.
Danielle: “I would like to see Cody at the end even though he betrayed me but like I said, I’m a good sport. I think Cody plays the best game. I really do. I think a lot of them need to step up. I want to see Cody at the end. I really do.”
Kevin: “I’d like Enzo to reach the end of the game. I’m not going to get angry about Tyler getting to the end of the game. Even Nicole F is at the end. Can I say Zingbot too? (Laughs) Can he reach the end of the game and win? I don’t know, I don’t know. At the end. Any of these people. “
The new jury members also talked about their unique experiences at the Big Brother All-Star House. For Kevin, Cody has been a thorn in his side throughout the season. They never got along from the start and Kevin thinks he knows why.
“Cody and I really didn’t agree with this season because he nominated me the first week and kind of gave me a fake answer as to why and then made it look like I had to make an effort to get to know him. He, himself, didn’t have to put in much effort either. I was not a fan of how he knew Nicole. I felt this was an unfair advantage. On top of that, he always played with cameras. He was always “working” and not really himself. I wasn’t a huge fan of that. Did you know what’s great? You don’t have to. You like everyone.I wasn’t like him and maybe he wasn’t like me.
A big part of Kevin’s journey this year was that there were times when he never felt accepted by any group at home. Even other African Americans dismissed him as one of them in the talks he was a part of. Now that the game is over and he is free to express his opinion without his game suffering any consequences, Kevin has promised that he will speak to David and Da’Vonne on the jury about how he will be treated.
“Being bi-ethnic, I sometimes feel unacceptable on either side. The African American community does not accept me as fully and Japanese society does not recognize me as a part of them. So, where am I appropriate? Most of the household was Caucasian and would not accept me as part of them. I felt a kind of“ other ” It wasn’t painful, because that sounds crazy. I had a deep conversation with David and Da’Vonne and will have another jury conversation with them about it. About how African Americans at home often don’t consider me a part of them. I felt like if My community was not counting me as part of it, so who does? It made me feel different and sometimes this just doesn’t feel good, ”he said, his voice choking as he fought back some tears.
David was a home ally of Kevin to the best end but they couldn’t take any steps against the commission. They couldn’t win the competitions and they couldn’t wreak any cracks in this alliance. David could see how things were developing but he couldn’t stop him.
“Ultimately, there are a lot of house guests this season. I knew that. If I had had a chance to win, I would have changed that, but when Tyler and Enzo kept telling me I had to win HoH so you could do something he was pretty much saying they were throwing the competition. Because they don’t need to win. That’s what I took it. I got it. I didn’t win the contests that I needed in order to change the balance at home and win them as stronger allies instead of being a person in the mix but it’s not there throughout the game. “
Daniel was the last victim of the grueling triple evacuation, the first committee member to be targeted by its allies. Of all, Daniel Cody bears the greatest responsibility for that betrayal.
“I feel totally betrayed by Cody. I try not to take things personally. It’s all a game. I feel like Tyler is outmatching me. I feel like Christmas is overtaking me. Kudos to them. I never got hurt because Cody got hurt in the game. I feel so betrayed. I feel very sad about it. “
Danielle didn’t seem to be a big fan of Christmas either. She didn’t acknowledge or hug her when she left the house last night. After spending the night sleeping on things, Danielle somewhat regrets what happened.
“I’m really sorry I didn’t hug her last night. I got stuck in things. You were a hiccup for me. I thought I would stay. I didn’t think I was going. I was a bad sport about it. They got me. Tyler and Christmas got me. Good for them! If they do! I could have come back I’ll hug her. I’m a good sport. I think Christmas plays an excellent competition match. If it’s all about competitions, then Christmas does a great job. However, throughout the whole season you never knew what was going on at home. Never. Never. Never .. Never. So, do I think she’s playing a good, well-rounded game? I no. What do I think of her as a person? I don’t know her as a person outside of Big Brother so I can’t really judge her. How did I feel hanging out with her? She was a rollercoaster. I hated her at first and then loved her. Then I couldn’t stand her .. Then some days I loved her. I really don’t know how I feel about her. It’s nice to walk away from her though! She said with a smile, “I’m not going to lie.”
