Audrey Middleton – Big Brother 17 Eviction Interview – Update: Big Brother After Dark Q&A Sneak Peek

Audrey Middleton became one of the most stand out Houseguests in the early stages of Big Brother 17, but unfortunately standing out in the crowd isn’t always the best for a player’s long game.

Voted out this week by near unanimous vote Audrey had become the common threat among the Houseguests unifying them with one goal. When her own allies found she had started to undermine their trust in a bid to better position herself between them the players came together from both sides to end her run as the game’s official pot-stirrer.

“I said I was going to go in there stealthy like Dexter Morgan, but I came in like an Acme anvil.” – Audrey Middleton.

Update: Tonight on Big Brother After Dark Audrey will be answering fan questions sent in via Twitter. Here’s a preview clip but you can catch more later tonight on Pop.

Talking with Audrey today confirmed that there was no chance of her returning to the Big Brother house as once we’re allowed free conversation anything can be said and details revealed which would give her an advantage upon return. So this was her one shot.

What was the beginning of the end for Audrey’s game?

Audrey Middleton: The second I opened my mouth. It was fun, and you know what? You only live once. I know I’m a Big Brother fan so I know there are fans that are disappointed in me and rightfully so. I just have to own it.

What was her favorite pot-stirring the moment of her stay?

Audrey: How could I possibly pick one? Um, one thing that kinda worked was when I brought Da’Vonne and Austin and Liz to the Hammock Room and made them confront each other. I feel like that one didn’t totally blow up in my face. At least it went for a solid 24 hours before it did.

Audrey tried to warn the “other side” about Shelli & Clay’s mega alliance, but James just went and spilled the beans back to Clay. Was there anyone else she should have told instead of was no one going to trust her?

Audrey: From the inside, I didnt’ feel like there was. Jason already blab’d when I said I was the Day vote. Steve was so calculated on who he’d be seen with and for how long so I’m the last person he’s going to talk game to. Johnny Mac threw me under the bus so many times. I had been working on James for a few days and I thought we were getting somewhere. He was close to Clay and I thought this would have to feel like a betrayal. I’m just not a good sunshine salesman like Clay is.

Was Audrey on to the Twin Twist and keeping quiet or was it a surprise when she was were told?

Audrey: I was definitely one of the last to find out. I had heard about the speculation, but hadn’t put much thought in to it because I was fighting a different battle every day. In the last, last moments before my departure it was confirmed that this was happening.

If she could rewind and start over at Day 1, which allies would Audrey want to play with?

Audrey: I naturally gravitated to Shelli but would stay away from Da’Vonne.

Audrey didn’t attend the Power of Veto Ceremony and became the first HG to do so. Does she regret that decision?

  1. Giver her credit for owning up to some faults. I’m willing to bet CBS has some very smart PR people who work to educate these people before exit interviews as to what the smart plays are. Some heed the advice and some obviously don’t.

    But going to the “I don’t know if that was game play on her part or what, but I totally went for it and I shouldn’t have” (in regard to Becky’s bringing her food) feels like a bit of a cheap excuse.

    I know Becky is a recruited HG who knows nothing of the game but I can’t imagine she’d risk a possible penalty herself out of game play.

    Credit to Audrey for taking most of the heat/responsibility though. It would have been VERY easy to shift blame.

    • Don’t they have a rule book in the house? That part felt like an excuse to me, too. Otherwise, glad she owned it. Wish her well. :)

      • I doubt there’s a rule book. If so we’d invariably see people studying it around the clock trying to find a broken rule they could use to get someone booted. It would be a form of entertainment (a book) I think.

      • Thanks, Who cares. I had no idea. Apologies, bbadboy! (I’ve no memory of ever seeing a player use it before.)

      • So….you’re not a feedster, or not a true fan. MANY HGs have read the BB rule book, out loud, over many seasons. Eating was not Audrey’s only offense. Having BR lights on in daytime was another. Not attending the veto meeting….another. Sleeping on the floor instead of the dental chair….another. For her to blame Becky for giving her food….simply another delusion.

      • Okay, Judy, no need to get catty about it. There are a great many of us who are indeed big fans who don’t subscribe to the feeds or have the time to devote to watching them 24/7. That doesn’t make us: “Not true fans.”

        Once it was pointed out that it does exist (the rule book) and is kept in the back room I thanked the poster and admitted that I’d never seen it used before and apologized for making the mistake.

        Apologies for not being as focused.

      • There’s a version of the BB rulebook available online, although it’s not specifically that of BBUS but of the franchise itself. I’ll see if I could find it for you (hopefully it’s in English).

      • Very cool, James. That’s very kind of you but please don’t trouble yourself. I’ll do a search myself. (Thanks for your kindness!)

      • I’m 100% wrong, bbadboy. Sorry. (It’s not the first time and it certainly won’t be the last I suspect.)

  2. I’m sure she’s a wonderful person IRL. Not gonna say anything else… you already know it.

  3. This Audrey character is societal waste. . .and should be shunned pitied and . . .NEVER HEARD FROM AGAIN. .thanks

      • What did Jerry do? I think Audrey is the worst bc since she is transgender, all she had to do was lay low, and slide all the way to the finish line. She was on nobody’s radar, bc she is transgender. They were all scared to send her home, bc nobody wanted to be the person who sent the transgender home. But Audrey continually kept shooting herself in the foot. Even after she was given 2 “get out of jail free” cards, by Shelli and Vanessa. Worst player ever. Even worse than Devin, bc Devin was able to win comps.

      • She is not the worse player ever, she played it too hard too fast. Even her friend Dalton said he knew she would stir the pot before they cut back to Julie last night. Something to think about.

    • I’ve seen worse players in the last three seasons since I started watching BB regularly and Audrey is not one of them. She’s an average player at best who played too hard too fast too early like many early boots.

      • Who was Victoria? There was a player named Victoria? I keep hearing rumors she was on last season but I don’t remember a player with that name. ;-)

  4. That was an interesting read. I wonder how she would answer the same questions after watching what’s happened over the past few weeks.

  5. Audrey said that if she started the game over she would gravitate towards Shelli and stay away from Da’vonne but that still would have been the same outcome. Shelli will always pick Clay and Da’vonne had Jason and when she thought she could trust Audrey she was with her. The only downfall to Audrey’s game was Audrey. The talking, the lies, the deceit, the manipulation are all apart of the game but the thing is to not get caught and she got caught. I think Audrey and Da’vonne would have killed the game together if they trusted each other but Audrey threw everyone under the bus two seconds after giving her word and Da’vonne let her emotions get the better of her.

    I had high hopes for Audrey pre-season but she burned out fast.

  6. Audrey, love you girl. certainly an interesting person, and if only that translated into the Big brother game, but sadly that never happened and it has proven to be quite disappointing, I honestly hope this season picks up and it stops being the ‘Shelli and Clay’ show, oh how lame. more people need to stop throwing comps just for the sake of being off the proverbial radar, I honestly look forward to when the pawns are thinning out and they have to turn on each other, I been watching BB in what seems like forever and it always tends to become more interesting as it goes on. I just wanted to share my thoughts on it, considering this is easily my fave BB site. keep it coming.
