Last night we learned that Megan Lowder had quit Big Brother, but the pieces of the puzzle weren’t all there. A few more were revealed today when Paul Abrahamian sat down for a camtalk and explained a little of what led up to the issue.
What we knew secondhand from Christmas & Raven’s talk was that a big fight over claims of things said led Megan to the Diary Room where she left by the back door instead of returning to the game. Later we heard that Jessica had been informed that Megan had told Alex of allegedly racial comments made by Jessica against her. Stack a big layer of “allegedly” here because all of these things happened before we got to start watching the Live Feeds. Grab the Free Trial now so you can watch too.
So how’d that all get started with this game of telephone? Well according to Paul, Paul got that ball rolling. Gulp. Not sure I’d be relaying this information if I thought I lit the fuse that led to someone dropping out since that’s a pretty big deal and not what I’d consider conventional strategy.
Note: Since there’s some confusion in the comments below, let me rephrase. Trying to get DORs (drop out request) to progress your game is unconventional. Getting someone to hit you so they are ejected instead of getting that person nominated and evicted, is unconventional. Messing with someone’s head to create drama is perfectly normal, entirely conventional, and not what I was noting here.
Paul is privately explaining his strategy for this season to the camera as he describes his plans to get the women to turn on each other. Case in point, here’s what happened when he pitted Jessica vs Alex vs Megan.
Megan told me that… you know Jessica… I overheard Megan said that Jessica had dropped a racist comment. I don’t know what it was about. But I know that Jessica doesn’t like me and the comment was about Alex. And I know that Jessica doesn’t like Alex and she’s threatened by her.
So I casually just dropped that, I said, “hey, Jess, you know I heard that you were being a little racist. I don’t know, it’s going around.” This f**king pissed her off. She went straight to Alex, straight to Megan, caused a fiasco, and Megan left the game because of it.
So that’s one person out just because I dropped that little thing. Stirred the pot. One person left the game and the other person is now on the Block… and it ain’t me. That’s f**king crazy.
I am not blaming Paul for any decisions Megan may have made to leave the game. She’s a grown adult and can make her own choices. And we still don’t know exactly what happened and probably never will. Megan is out in the wild today and has posted online that she’ll be releasing a statement, but as of now I haven’t seen anything other than a few denials over the suggestion that she quit.
CBS has yet to make a statement either but we’ll probably see something in Sunday’s episode since they had to redo the nominations. When we know more we will continue to share. In the meantime, what’s your reaction? Share your thoughts below.
