PARTING WORDS

What was your first reaction when you saw Justin walk in the House?
Oh, I was like, "Damn, that hurt! I might have just become single." That was what I was thinking. 

Did you play the game as you hoped you would, or did the ex-factor change your strategy?
No, I went in playing how I had hoped. I knew there wasn't going to be that much that could throw me off my track so I was prepared for anything. 

Is there anything that you would have done differently?
No, I think I did well. 

What personality trait is important for being in the BIG BROTHER House?
I would have to say you have to be manipulative. That has to be the most important for this game. 

Looking back, is there anyone you wish you had formed an alliance with?
No. 

Which alliance do you think was the strongest?
Jun and I had the strongest alliance. 

Which HouseGuest was the greatest threat to you, and why?
Dana was the biggest threat to me, because she came after me. She told me she wanted to punch me in the face, but we won't go there. She was the biggest threat. 

What was your favorite moment in the BIG BROTHER House?
Walking out that door a couple of minutes ago and seeing my parents. 

What did you think about when Jun went to the MTV Video Music Awards?
I was like, "There had better be some red carpet that I can walk on, because this is not fair!" [laughs] 

What will you miss most about being in the House?
I will miss being lazy, and not really having anything to do. No schedule, no one to guide me--I could do my own thing. 

Did you think having an ex in the House was an advantage or disadvantage?
For me it was an advantage because he and I formed a non-scoping alliance, and because it was a HouseGuest I knew, I kind of knew his personality, I knew his traits, I knew his weaknesses, so I walked all over him. 

What advice would you give to future BIG BROTHER HouseGuests?
Lie! Lie your face off. Lie, make sure your alliance lies for you, make sure everyone lies for you, otherwise you're not getting any money. 

What are your plans after BIG BROTHER is over?
I just want to call up my boyfriend and be with him. I'm also doing an episode of YES, DEAR.

PARTING WORDS

What was your first reaction when you saw Scott?
Shock, and then nervousness. 

What was the most difficult aspect of being on BIG BROTHER?
Trying not to be fake, because it is almost impossible. 

Did you play the game as you hoped you would, strategy-wise?
I played the game the way I wanted to, but it didn't work for me. 

Knowing about the X Factor now, is there anything you would have done differently?
I maybe would have tried to align with Scott a little more to keep him settled. 

What personality trait is most important for winning this game?
A total disregard for people's feelings. 

Which alliance is strongest, and why?
Jack, Nate, Dave and Erika. That's if Jee doesn't put them up for nomination.
Which HouseGuest was the greatest threat to you, and why?
Dana. I think she had a lot of influence over people initially. 

What was your favorite moment in the BIG BROTHER House?
Probably spending time with Dave. 

Was there instant attraction when you met Dave?
I was initially attracted to Dave. But with Scott being in the House and them being friends, it wasn't something that I was going to pursue. 

Would you like to see Dave win the game?
Yea, I would: Dave, and then probably Jack. 

What advice would you give to future BIG BROTHER HouseGuests?
Just go in and don't take it too seriously. If you take it too seriously, you can kind of burn yourself out.

PARTING WORDS

What was the most difficult aspect of being on BIG BROTHER?
No contact with my real friends or my family. 

Did you play the game as you hoped you would, strategy-wise?
For the most part, yes. My only regret was not nominating Nathan alongside of Alison. 

What personality trait is most important for winning this game?
The ability to be phony! Obviously not one of my strong points. 

Knowing what you know now, with whom should you have formed an alliance with, or do you think that you should have stayed with the Elite 8?
I think that my alliance of 5 (Jee, Jun, Justin, Robert and myself) was the strongest and coolest alliance, by far! I truly didn't want to be part of the "elite 8" after the first few days, and was totally happy to leave that group. 

Which HouseGuest was the greatest threat to you, and why?
Personally, I didn't feel like any one HouseGuest was a real "threat" to me. Alison had a reason to put me on the block because I nominated her the previous week, but she shouldn't have made it past that point. 

What was your favorite moment in the BIG BROTHER House?
Winning HoH and getting my personalized "welcome basket." The notes from my friends and family put everything into a new perspective for me. That was truly the greatest moment in that crazy House. 

Who do you think will win, and why?
Any member of my alliance, really. Jun, Justin, Robert or Jee. They are all great players but most of all they are great people and deserve to win. 

What advice would you give to future BIG BROTHER HouseGuests?
Don't get too close to anybody once inside the House. My mistake was that I really started to "like" people and that made the game personal--which is a big no-no. 

Who do you think will win?
I think Justin has a great chance of winning, but he's the first one the original alliance wants out. They'll be coming after him right away. I'm hoping that Jun can sneak her way through to the end. 

What was your first reaction when the exes walked in? Were you relieved that you did not have an ex? Did you feel the couples had an advantage or disadvantage?
I was thrilled when my ex didn't walk through that door. Too much emotion was brought into the House with the Exes, and I'm already an emotionally charged individual. Having to deal with my ex would have killed me. 

The Exes were at a total disadvantage. Personal opinions and stories were being told all over the House, leading people to form different opinions than they would have on their own. 

Who was your favorite person and least favorite person in the House?
There's a tie for my least favorite person in the House. Nathan is one of my least favorite for using the veto on Alison. Alison is my least favorite because she's just not my type of person. 

There's also a tie for my favorite person in the House. Jun was my fave because she's just so cool. She's just like me, and we had so much fun and so many laughs. I can't wait to see her outside of that House and back in New York! 

Justin was also my fave because he just really reminded me of all my guy friends back at home. He was my breath of fresh air in that House, and I look forward to being friends with him as well. 

I could say that Robert and Jee have qualities that would make them my faves too! Those four really are quality people and I look forward to knowing all of them!

PARTING WORDS

What was your first thought when you saw Michelle walk in the house?
Thank God it was Michelle and not some other exes that I have. 

What personality trait is most important for winning this game? 
I don't know if it's a personality trait, but definitely you have to be able to adapt to any situation that comes up, because everything's changing in there. If you get set on one thing, that could cost you the game. 

What was your reaction when you got evicted?
I was kind of happy I got evicted, because I knew that I was going to be now or in the next couple of weeks, and I'd rather start my life outside the world than be sequestered hanging out with those dorks for another eight weeks. 

Which of the alliances is strongest, and why?
I think the strongest alliance right now is the Three Stooges with Dana and Jun, because they have the numbers, and even if one goes down this week, then they're still pretty good at competitions. But both sides of the House are going to be equally strong after this week. 

Who do you think will win?
I think a dumbass like Jee would win because it takes a bunch of luck and being in the right place at the right time. Why would someone smart win, like Jack or Erica? It ends up being someone who gets lucky. That's my take on it. 

Who would you like to see win?
I hope Jack or Erica will win because I think they're definitely the smartest in the house, and I feel that the smartest should win. I think if you handle everything, do everything right to win it, you should be rewarded the money.

Is there anything you would have done differently, knowing what you know about the alliances?
One thing I would have done differently was not let Jun always come up and rub up on me. I thought that by doing that it would get her closer with me, but I think she is the reason I'm out of the House, so obviously that plan didn't work. Regrets in the House? I really don't have any. Oh, my first regret is having my knee slip on the first Head of Household Competition. I could have knelt on that thing forever. I could have outlasted everyone, but because I was so confident, "Man, I can do this," I took my mind off the game. I started thinking about if I locked my front door or something, and I ended up slipping off the stupid button. 

What was the most difficult aspect of being on BIG BROTHER?
Not being able to listen to music.I definitely like a lot of music, it helps me sleep at night. 

Do you have a favorite moment in the House?
Yeah, I have a lot of favorites. I liked how Amanda always cracked me up, and she'd always make fun of me when we'd play cards into the wee hours of the morning. Being with her definitely made it more of a fun time there, and made things easier to handle. 

What advice would you give to future BIG BROTHER HouseGuests?
I don't have any advice. 

What's next for you?
I don't know, I'm just going to keep doing whatever makes me happy at the time. If I'm approached to work in the television field, I'd probably use the opportunity just to get some cash so I can keep surfing and working on cars.

PARTING WORDS

What was your first reaction when you saw Robert walk in the House?
Oh my God--that was it! I felt very betrayed, like, "Wow, this isn't what I signed up for, how could they have done this to me, I don't want to be here with him." Anything you could possibly think of that was negative I thought that. 

Was that the most difficult aspect of being on BIG BROTHER, or was there something else?
That was one of them in the beginning, that he was there. Then I said, "I'm here, I have to put my game face on. I can't let this one aspect of the game tear me down." The isolation, the boredom, the downtime, it was excruciating. It was very, very, very difficult. 

Did you play the game as you hoped, strategy-wise, or is there anything you would do differently?
I have no regrets; I think I played exactly how I wanted to play. I didn't want to lie a lot, though in the last few weeks it became kind of difficult not to because there's no one around to cover you. I think I played exactly how I thought I would. 

Is there anyone you wish you had formed an alliance with?
No, I think I aligned myself with the people I wanted to, and I thought I had it pretty good. 

What personality trait do you think is most important to survive on BIG BROTHER?
I think you really have to be very cutthroat in this game. You can't let personal feelings about people determine what you're going to do, because that becomes very difficult. 

Which HouseGuest do you think will win?
I think Alison will definitely win this game. 

Who would you have liked to see win out of everyone?
I would have loved to see David win. David or Jack. 

And out of the three remaining, who would you like to see win?
Gosh, I would love to see Robert win, or Jun. I think all three of them played a great game. 

What did you think about Jun going to the MTV Video Music Awards?
I thought it was kind of very unfair, I felt like, "My God, she gets to go there." It was hard to watch. 

What are your plans after BIG BROTHER is over?
I plan to go back to work teaching my classes, and appreciating my life, and my dog. 

What was your favorite moment in the BIG BROTHER House?
In the second week, when we pulled that big shock on Robert and Justin where I didn't go and Michelle left. That was probably my favorite. 

Is there anything you'll miss about the House?
I don't think there's anything I'll miss. I really love my life and being able to play with my dog, and use the phone and watch TV. 

What advice would you give to future BIG BROTHER HouseGuests?
Don't do it. Be careful what you wish for. It's not what you think it's going to be, it never is. It's very difficult psychologically. It's very hard. Have a thick skin.

PARTING WORDS

What was your reaction when you got evicted?
I was surprised and stunned that I was evicted; I really thought I was going to stay. Robert and Jee had given me assurances, the most assurance you can get in the House, that I was going to stay. I thought they could control their votes. They wanted to evict Erika, and have me stay. I didn't want to have Erika evicted, but I wanted to stay. I was surprised and shocked--I really wanted to stay! I thought I was doing well, then the last two days, I began to get uneasy. Alison and Jun were running around the House, and I didn't know how the vote was going to go. 

What did you think when you saw all the exes at the beginning of the show? 
The HouseGuests were in there, the original eight, a couple of hours before things started to fall apart emotionally. Five of the eight realized they had exes coming in, and they didn't like it! Since I didn't have an ex coming in, I was thinking, "Isn't this a real kick! Won't this be fun!" 

Did you think it was an advantage not to have an ex in the House?
I thought it was an advantage for me not to have an ex. For those who did have exes there, they initially didn't like it, but then they would get together and talk and iron things out. I know Jee and Jun helped each other a lot, more so I think than any of the other exes. I am just glad I was in there on my own, without someone who knew too much about me. I could wheel and deal and feel free about it. It was an advantage for me. 

What was the most difficult aspect of being on BIG BROTHER?
Psychologically, the long periods where we did not do anything. We wanted to compete--I was with a very young, young group, so it was difficult for me to adjust my strategy to fit the energy of the House. There was a 19 year old, there were a bunch of 20 year olds in there that were all great atheletes. They were gym rats, in terrific shape and they knew about nutrition, and I didn't want to run circles around them. I wanted to keep up with them, but I didn't want to be an authoritative figure and try to give them orders of any kind. They would have evicted me. But initially adjusting to the age of the House was tough, but I did it and I felt comfortable with it. 

Did you play the game as you hoped, going in?
I played the game exactly as I wanted to play it, but here I am evicted, so what went wrong? 

Do you have any regrets? 
I don't have any regrets about the alliances I was in. I think had I won HoH last week that my alliance with Erika would have gone really far toward the finals. I don't have any regrets in that way. My strategy from the very beginning was to lie low, not try to be a target, not to win a lot of competitions early, because those people get voted off. That happened in this House. I wanted to be perceived as the kind of person who could help you get to the finals, but who could be in the finals. That was my strategy. 

Which HouseGuest was the biggest threat to you?
Justin. Justin to me is the most effective, skilled player ever to play the BIG BROTHER game, and I knew from the second or third day that I had to take him out. I tried for six weeks, and Erika and Jun finally did it. 

What personality trait is most important to have in the BIG BROTHER House?
I think to get along well with a variety of personalities. That's what you need to do--you need to chill out and mellow, which some of us didn't do, and not make a fuss. You need to be in an alliance, but you don't need to be in people's faces. I treated everyone with courtesy, I liked everyone, I was friendly, I talked to the other alliances a lot. I didn't just seclude myself with the people I was aligned with. I liked all of them. 

What was your favorite moment in the BIG BROTHER House?
My favorite moment was when I made a fool out of myself as a strawberry. I thoroughly enjoyed that because I knew how silly I looked, so I was shaking my butt around, and dancing. I got into some cereal, and Erika poured milk all over me! That's a great deal, isn't it? [laughs] 

Who would you like to see win and why?
I would like to see Erika win. I have great respect for her, she's a savvy, sophisticated, intelligent, witty, glamorous woman. She was wonderful to talk to; she was like another daughter to me. We were very close in our alliances, and worked very smoothly and coherently together. I would love to see her win. 

Who do you think will win?
I think Erika has a good shot at it. I think Jee, if Jee can survive this week after the food mess. We all felt Jee would be unbeatable in the finals because he's such a sympathetic, honorable guy. But I would like to see Erika and Jun in the finals. 

What will you miss most about being in the House?
I will miss talking to Erika, I'm very fond of her, I'm very close to her. I hope that I can maintain our friendship and she can visit Alabama, and I hope to visit her in California. I had a great respect for the way she played the game, we helped each other a lot, and I'll miss her. 

What advice would you give to future BIG BROTHER HouseGuests?
Be prepared for anything. They will absolutely fool you and surprise you. Don't think you know what's going to happen tomorrow in the BIG BROTHER House because you will be wrong. 

What are your plans after the show?
I'm going to return to Birmingham, Alabama, be with my family, who I miss very much, and resume my writing career. I retired from the FBI so I could write, and I want to go back home and write.

PARTING WORDS

What was your reaction when you got evicted?
I wasn't surprised, I knew it was coming. I came to terms with it, of course--the fact that yes, I will be the one to be evicted, most likely. So I was actually looking forward to it in a weird way. I lost out on the chance for $500,000, and of course that is devastating, and it does disturb me a bit. But at the same time I think I played the best that I could, and that was all I could ask of myself. Right now, I don't have any regrets. I'm happy about everything. 

Would you have done anything differently knowing what you know now?
There are a lot of ifs. What if I had taken the proposal from Jack when he said, "How about you veto off Erica and put Allison up on the block, we'll get her out and we'll go after the floaters." Of course, throughout the week I said to myself, "Man, maybe I should have taken that veto--maybe I should have agreed." But I can't think about that now. The way I played this game, I'm not going to look back. I'm going to move forward and do the best that I can. I can't have any regrets or else I'll just be going crazy with myself at this point. 

What was your first reaction when you walked into the House and saw Jun? 
Oh, God, when I saw Jun the first day when I walked into the House, my jaw just dropped to the floor and I felt like leaving. I was this close to just saying, this is bulls***, I want out right now and I want to go home, because this is not what I was coming here for. I knew my experience would be so horrible because she was there, but things have worked out between us and it was all right. I had a great time, it was a great experience. 

Who did you think had the stronger alliance, The Dream Team or the Desert Room?
Of course I'm going to be a little biased about this question. I would like to say the Dream Team alliance is stronger because of the fact that we were always loyal to each other, not that the Desert Room alliance wasn't. It was the Trio, The Dream Team, the Three Musketeers, whatever you guys like to call us, the Three Stooges--we were very tight and I have never questioned them. They were always loyal to me and always had my back and I returned that to them. So I think we had the stronger alliance for sure. 

Who would you like to see win?
Right now, it's tough. I would like to see Robert win because he is the remaining member of the Dream Team. I know he has a daughter, is a single father and is divorced. It would be great for him to win that money, but I don't think that is going to happen. If that does not happen, I would rather it be Erica or Jun at this point. 

What personality trait is most important to have in the BIG BROTHER House?
You have to be obviously likable, you have to be very blunt and honest. That carries a lot of weight in this game. You can be manipulative and conniving--we all do tell lies in this game. But when it comes down to the nitty gritty, if you are going to make some bold moves you have to be very honest even if it does hurt the opponents. I think that is the most important trait: honesty. 

What was your favorite moment in the BIG BROTHER House?
When Justin won the HoH and we were fighting the alliance we knew was going to go after us, that was seriously one of the best moments for me in the game. But at the same time, when I won HoH for the second time and I was the first player to ever do so in this game of BIG BROTHER 4, I got some really sentimental and loving items from Carmen, so that was probably the best time. 

What advice would you give to future BIG BROTHER HouseGuests?
I would probably tell them keep your cards very close to you, and be careful who you align with. If you do align, keep it to maybe one person, do not make a bigger alliance than two. Have faith in that member and be honest to people when you have to even if it does mean that you will make enemies, because in the long run, it can help you out and you'll be benefiting from that.

PARTING WORDS

What was your first reaction when you saw Jee walk in the House?
My first reaction was, "I am very angry." I was angry because I felt like Jee was stealing my spotlight; this was supposed to be my thing. I had been really trying to get rid of him, and he was out of my life for a good three years, and he just popped right in to my show. 

Is there anything that you would have done differently, even having won the game?
I think I did a great job playing the game. I regret having had some confrontations with people. Not because I feel bad as a person, but because I think people got to see the nasty side of Jun sooner than I wanted them to.

What do you think is the most difficult aspect of being in the BIG BROTHER House?
No privacy, no contact with the outside world, bright lights all the time--a number of things. You never sleep comfortably because you have to sleep with one eye open. 

What was your first reaction when you were told you'd be going to the MTV Video Music Awards?
First of all, just getting out of the House was something I never thought would happen, and so I was so happy I think tears started forming in my eyes. Then when I found out I was going to New York, that was even better, then when I found out it was the VMAs, I was dumbfounded. I just couldn't believe it was happening to me, so when they led me out and it was for real, I had to have someone pinch me. 

Was it hard not to tell your friends you were in New York?
It was horribly hard because where I was staying for the event was literally 20 blocks from work, 20 blocks from home, 40 blocks from my parents' house. If I had picked up the phone I could have been talking to someone, and I couldn't let anyone know where I was. 

What personality trait do you think you have to have to win the game?
You definitely have to be numb to people stabbing you in the back. You can't come in here naïve; you have to be very, very worldly. 

Which HouseGuest was the greatest threat to you?
The biggest threat to me was Alison, and that's why I needed to align with her. 

What was your favorite moment in the BIG BROTHER House?
I think my favorite moment was when I ate all the gefilte fish in time during the clambake. 

What do you think you'll miss most about the House?
Security, stability, knowing that I'm on some sort of schedule. In the outside world, the craziness is what I've always loved, but now that I'm going to be thrown back into it, I might want to crawl back in the House. 

Was cooking part of your strategy to win?
Cooking was a huge part of my strategy to win, because I was able to get people on my good side, and also to make people feel like I was always there. They didn't have to worry about food or groceries, or know where to put what. I took on a lot of the burden that would have been split up between three or four people. 

Who were your favorite and least favorite HouseGuests?
I think Justin was my favorite HouseGuest because he really cleaned up after himself, he was funny, he was always respectful to me. My least favorite would probably be Nathan. Boys will be boys, but he was a boy, and he did not clean up after himself, and he was rude and did not help around the House at all. 

What advice would you give to future BIG BROTHER HouseGuests?
Make sure you know that you're giving up a lot of rights, and I'm not just talking about privacy. People will say bad things about you, people will stab you in the back, they will betray you, they'll lie to your face. Just be ready for all that and make sure you can do it yourself, otherwise don't walk in that door. 

What are your plans now that BIG BROTHER is over, and what will you do with the money?
I am going to look into buying an apartment. Nothing too extravagant, just something that I'll be happy with, with plenty of closet space. I'm going to probably go shopping, take a little vacation, a real one, and then try to open up a business.

PARTING WORDS

What was your reaction when you first walked into the House and saw Alison?
My heart dropped. When we walked into the House, they said, "Welcome to BIG BROTHER 4, THE X FACTOR." I thought it was going to be maybe X-treme sports, or something like that. I walked in and my first thought seeing her was, "Oh my God, I wonder if they know we know each other," I thought it was just coincidence. But then I saw Robert's face, and Jee's face, and they were all bummed out. I was like, "Oh my God, your exes are here too." It was a horrible feeling. 

Do you think it was an advantage or disadvantage to have an ex?
In the beginning it seemed like an advantage. It was somebody that you knew, somebody that you could read, but at the same time it was somebody that could read you. If you wanted to go in there and be the nice guy, you couldn't do that if it wasn't the real you. If you weren't acting like yourself, they were going to call you out. They're the kind of people that would call you out, because they're your exes, that's the kind of thing they do. 

What was the most difficult aspect of being on BIG BROTHER?
The fact that we had to pass so much downtime. There's no television, no internet, no telephone, and even with the people in the House that you talk to, your ex is there. It was hard to find things to keep yourself busy. That was probably the hardest thing. 

What personality trait is most important for winning this game?
I think that honesty is going to go a little way in saying who's going to be the winner. That's a lot different than saying who's going to take second. I think you can take second if you're going to be a little like a snake--you can definitely get that far, but you won't get the loot in the end. I'd say that honesty and being easy going, easy to get along with are most important. 

Who do you think will win?
I honestly think its going to be Robert, Jee, Jack or Erica, because I can't see anyone voting for Alison and Jun if they make it to the finals. 

Who do you want to win?
I would like to see Robert or Jee win, obviously, but if its somebody from the other team, I'd like it to be Jack. 

Which alliance in the House do you think was the strongest?
We were definitely the strongest alliance in the House. I think next to that thought was Jack and Erica. 

What was your favorite moment in the BIG BROTHER House?
I had a lot of favorite moments in the House. A lot of them were just goofing around at 3 or 4, 5 in the morning with David. David was always good for some memories. But competitions, they were very memorable times as well.

What was the worst moment?
Either when I was fighting with Ali, or when we had that nasty food competition. 

If you were to go back and start over, would you have made the same alliance?
Absolutely. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change anything that I did. 

Who was your greatest threat?
I think my greatest threat was Nathan, just because he was on the other team, and he was very, very competitive. He had the potential to win a lot of competitions, so that's why it was very nice for me to get him out of there. 

So you don't regret anything?
No, not one regret. 

What will you miss most about being in the House?
I will miss not having to go to work every day, I will miss not having any worries, I will miss not having to make any important daily decisions, and I will miss not having to be serious. 

What are your plans after the show?
My plans, I don't really know. I have school to finish up, but after that I really don't know. Just wherever it takes me. 

What advice would you give to future Big Brother HouseGuests?
I would say to be honest with yourself, to pick your alliances very carefully, don't piss anyone off, and choose a side. 

Are you excited to see Dana?
Absolutely, I can't wait to see Dana.

PARTING WORDS

What was your first thought when you walked into the House and saw David?
I was kind of happy, just because I knew someone from home, and it was kind of a comfort to know I could maybe trust this one person. 

Did you think that he would be part of your strategy?
Yes, I did. I though David and I definitely would form some sort of alliance, because we do have history. 

What was the most difficult aspect of being on BIG BROTHER?
Not knowing who I could trust was very stressful. 

What personality trait is most important for winning this game? 
I think that being a manipulative backstabber and liar are the exact traits that you need in this game, especially to win. 

Knowing what you know now, whom should you have formed an alliance with?
I don't know. I was just unlucky, I think, because people went against Jee. I think that if I hadn't been put up as the pawn, things would have been a lot different, and I wouldn't have had to worry, because nobody really viewed me as a threat and wanted me out of the House. 

Which of the alliances is strongest, and why?
I think that Erika, Jack and David have the strongest alliance. 

What was your favorite moment in the BIG BROTHER House?
My favorite moment was at night with Jun, joking with Nathan and me all the time. She was very hilarious. 

Who would you like to see win?
I think I would want to see Jee, Justin or Robert win. 

Who do you think will win?
I'm leaning towards Jack. 

What advice would you give to future BIG BROTHER HouseGuests?
Be careful. Don't be out of the loop. Listen to people's conversations Don't trust anyone, and good luck!

PARTING WORDS

Were you glad you didn't have an Ex in the House?
You know, at first, I was very glad, but I think as the weeks went on, honestly, I can say I would rather her be there. I think a lot of the competitions were geared toward that--knowing your ex--and I feel like in Ali and Justin's situation where she kind of killed me, I feel like you're always going to have that emotional bond with someone you date seriously. I feel like it could have honestly helped me out, so the answer is yeah, I really do wish she was there. 

What was the most difficult aspect of being on BIG BROTHER?
The most dfficult aspect--I would have to say that I had to learn to adjust to everyone's personality in the House. We're not all the same, and I had to get along with everyone in the House because you can't go anywhere. You have to learn to live with them. 

Did you play the game as you hoped you would, strategy-wise?
You can always adjust your strategy, and I think you have to improvise every once in a while. But the strategy I had going into the game is pretty much the strategy I used throughout the game. 

What personality trait is most important for winning this game? 
I would definitely have to say, sly, like a snake. I'll make no comment on who that is in the House. 

Who do you think will win, and why?
I would say the person with the best opportunity to win the game would be Jee, or Jack. 

Who do you want to win?
I would love to see Jack or Erica win. 

Which alliance in the House do you think is the strongest? 
I would say I'm confused with what's going on in there, but I would say the strongest alliance in the House presently is the Three Amigos 

Would you have formed an alliance with them had you known they were going to be so tight?
I feel like they had to form an alliance because their backs were against the wall coming in the House. We had the Original 8 alliance, and one person had to leave because of a penalty, and two defected, and so I would say I was happy with what I got. 

What was your favorite moment in the BIG BROTHER House?
When Ally and the beautiful Michelle came out in lettuce bikinis. That was pretty nice. 

What will you miss most about being in the House?
The friendships and the bonds that we all formed with one another. At times we all fought, and we didn't get along, but for the most part, all we had was each other. I enjoyed hanging out with everyone in the House. 

What are your plans after the show?
That's a good question. I'm hoping I'm going to come out LA and try to pursue a modeling and acting career if possible. 

What advice would you give to future Big Brother HouseGuests?
The best advice I can give to anyone in the House would be to play with no regrets and don't burn your bridges with anyone because it could come back and get you in the end.

PARTING WORDS

What was the most difficult thing about being in the BIG BROTHER House?
Being away from Elena. 

Did you have any idea Elena would greet you when you were evicted?
I had no idea that she would be there. I just couldn't believe it. 

How did you feel about winning three America's Choice questions?
Each America's Choice I was very surprised, and I was very grateful. I cannot believe America chose me for the three questions, and I'm really grateful and shocked by it. 

Did you play the game as you expected to going into it?
I played the game that I expected to play. Everything that I played is the way that I am, so it was exactly the way I wanted. 

What was your first reaction when you walked into the House and saw Erika?
My first reaction seeing Erika was that my whole game plan was shot to hell because Erika was in the House, but it didn't work out that way. 

Do you think you'll keep a friendship with Erika after the game?
I think Erika and I will keep a friendship. 

Would you have done anything differently knowing what you know now?
No, I would not change a thing. I loved my alliance, the Dream Team, I liked everything I did. I wouldn't change a thing. 

What was your favorite moment in the BIG BROTHER House?
The clam bake from hell was really, really fun. Seeing Justin, it was really the best thing out of the whole show. 

What personality trait is important for winning the game?
I think you have to be forgiving; you have to be able to understand people, understand where they're coming from. Everybody in this House is totally different, you have to understand that. If you can understand that, you can talk to them and react to them. 

Is there anything that you will miss?
I won't miss anything. I really won't. I am going to miss the friendships with Justin and Jee, but they were gone a long time ago. 

Which HouseGuest do you think will win?
I hope Alison wins. I think Alison will win. 

What are your plans after BIG BROTHER is over?
Spending a weekend with my daughter, and then starting my restaurant. I'm going to do that for sure. 

Who was your favorite HouseGuest?
Justin. 

What advice would you give to future BIG BROTHER HouseGuests?
My advice is don't make an alliance at the beginning. Don't get close to anyone, and don't win competitions in the beginning. You'll last a good eight weeks, and after that, you start playing the game. 

Would you do this again?
I would absolutely not do this again. No matter what the prize was, ever.
