Bronte D’Acquisto was voted off Big Brother 18 last night after a surprise house flip sent her out instead of the expected target, Tiffany. Now she’s on the outside but still has a chance to get back in the game next week.
Bronte became an outspoken Houseguest but unfortunately she was most often speaking out on the wrong side of the house when it came to who was in control. We asked her an apparent lack of campaigning, her tearful “secret nerd” reveal, who she’d target, and more in our Big Brother eviction interview below.
Big Brother Network: You asked your allies if you should be campaigning. Why did you decide not to campaign even without someone telling you to do that?
Bronte D’Acquisto: I decided not to campaign because at the time, Tiffany really was the true target. Too much campaigning in the house can work against you at times because people will feel you don’t trust them.
BBN: Why were you concerned and emotional about revealing your “secret nerd” status inside the house?
Bronte D’Acquisto: Since I was the last female on the rocket I became known as a physical threat. If the houseguest saw me as a mental threat it would have put a big target on my back. The reason I was emotional was because you don’t get no dang sleep in the Big Brother house. I think I’ve been getting three hours of sleep for the last 30 days.
BBN: You mentioned wishing you had seen more of Big Brother. What did you not feel prepared for once inside the house?
Bronte D’Acquisto: The amount of lying people are willing to do. I did not expect so much aggressive gameplay right out of the gate. I consider myself a feisty person, but I learned there’s a difference between being feisty and being cutthroat.
BBN: If you win your way back in, who do you target & who can you still trust?
Bronte D’Acquisto:I know I can trust Natalie. She’s my ride or die girl. My full attention would be on getting Paulie out of the house because I know he’s the puppet master.
BBN: Thank you, Bronte.
Pretty solid answers for these. That strange and awkward “I’m the secret nerd” moment didn’t make a lot of sense, but a lack of sleep can explain a lot away. I’d also be interested in seeing her go after Paulie considering she had previously planned to inform him post-season of her romantic interest in him. I’d guess that desire has been extinguished.
Get ready for more Big Brother with Sunday’s episode at 8/7c on CBS when the nominations ceremony is revealed and Roadkill takes another victim to the Block.
