What might she have done differently on her own? And who would have been her F3 if she had stayed this week? Read on to see what Julia told us.

What proved to be the hardest part about pretending to be your sister in the first few weeks?

Julia Nolan: The most challenging part was knowing the right information in such a short amount of time. There were a lot of smaller details we didn’t always go over. We always spent too much time talking about the game and alliances. Not being able to be my true self and having to act like Liz was also hard.

If you had been playing alone without your sister, what different moves might you have made?

Julia: If I played without Liz from the beginning, I think my social game would have been different because I wouldn’t be worried about people discovering I’m not who I say I am, and could be myself. I probably would have been friends with the same group and my alliance would still take me far into the game.

Since you and Liz decided Liz was the stronger competitor and had a better chance of winning, why do you think the rest of the house agreed then to let her stay over you?

Julia: I don’t think it was better for their game for her to stay, especially Vanessa since Liz is a stronger competitor but everyone in the house respected us and our decision and followed through with the plan.

You and Liz discussed trying to disrupt Vanessa’s plans by letting John know about her F2 deals. Why even then did you feel Steve was the better target instead of Vanessa for Liz next week?

Julia: I felt Steve was a better target because he had a hand in sending one of us home. If Vanessa won HOH, I don’t think she would put up Austin or Liz. She would target Steve and Johnny Mac.

Had Liz been evicted and you stayed, who would have been your ideal F3 & F2?

Julia: My ideal final three would have been Austin, Vanessa and myself. Final two would be Austin and myself.

Who do you most hope to see sitting next to Liz in F2?

Julia: I would hope that it’s Austin or Vanessa.

What is the biggest mystery you’re anxious to have answered once Big Brother 17 is over?

Julia: If Audrey was America’s player and the culprit behind the mystery votes.

Well she called it on why Liz should stick with Vanessa for the immediate future as it looks like John and Steve will be heading to the Block this round. Also interesting to hear she would have preferred Austin by her side over Vanessa. Of course we know that would have been her better shot at the win, but it’s interesting to see she knew that too.

  1. No updates on Jokers’ since before 10am. I do believe they are doing Noms and Veto today, since there is an eviction this Tuesday. And this shall alert the HG’S something is up

  2. Julia smacks her hands together loudly and often as she speaks. It’s irritating. She’s irritating. Liz’s name is Elizabeth. She said it was too hard to spell. I wonder if Julia’s is Julian.:(

  3. Did anyone see Julia ‘ s interview with Jeff? Julia referred to the trio as Oustwins, not Austwins. She’s too funny. Now professing her fondness of Austin. He’s going to make a good boyfriend to Liz. Right.
