Jeff Weldon became the third Houseguest of Big Brother 17 to walk out the front door following the closest eviction vote yet of the season. Now that Jeff is out he’s ready to tell us about the experience and what he’s got planned next.
After relentlessly campaigning for his life in the Big Brother house we saw Jeff voted out 7-4 which left a frantic house desperate to figure out how things ended up so close. So who surprised Jeff the most in those extra two votes? Read on for more.
Update: Big Brother After Dark has an exclusive clip for us from tonight’s upcoming BBAD on PopTV. Fans sent in their questions and they’re not pulling any punches. Check out the clip below and then catch tonight’s episode for even more peppered in all night:
I asked Jeff if he was surprised by getting four votes as many of us thought he was look at three max, or if he had felt confident about his chances.
Jeff Weldon: Honestly I thought I had a pretty good shot at winning [the vote]. I do have a way with words and manipulating people to convince them to do what I need them to do. I unfortunately failed this time.
Along with the expected votes from Jackie and John we saw Steve and Liz cast votes of support for Jeff. So who surprised him the most from those extra two?
Jeff: Liz’s vote all the way. I say that because Austin is such a psychopath that I’m surprised she’s not in fear of her life right now.
Speaking of Austin, I was curious if he sensed just how bad things had gotten between him and Austin to even include jealousy over the women in there.
Jeff: Oh absolutely and at the end I started rubbing it in his face. It was hilarious.
We saw Jeff and Austin supposedly bury the hatchet for a bit before it was dug up again, but how sincere was that? Was Jeff willing or interested in working with Austin in the later part of his stay?
Jeff: No, I didn’t trust him at all. The problem with Austin is he thinks he’s a smooth operator, but all of his efforts went completely noticed and not in a good way. I knew that he was slandering my name and dragging it through the dirt.
There were red flags very early in the game when he threw his “bro” Jace under the bus then he shunned him. Then he did the same to me. To me he was always a snake in the grass, but when it came to physical challenges I knew he might win them so I didn’t want to be on his bad side. I wanted some rapport, some fake rapport. I wanted to keep him close, but not too close. So no, I was not sincere and I was going to get rid of him.
Since it was such a hotly, albeit briefly, discussed topic I had to ask for his reaction to the story run by the likes of TMZ. You can Google it if you want.
Jeff: I was repulsed by even the idea of it. I’m not that guy. That would not occur ever in my world.
Things didn’t work out for Jeff, but what does he think of the chances for his former TAR partner Jackie Ibarra?
