Donny Thompson was a leading fan favorite and definitely ruled our popularity polls for the past several weeks. It was a loss for fans to see him walk out of the Big Brother 16 house on Thursday, but even Donny admitted his challenge was insurmountable.
Now that he’s out of the house and free from the Team America mission I wanted to get his thoughts on the season’s twist and its impact on his game. Plus we also asked Donny who he would have targeted, who he hopes to see win it all, and much more.
Matthew Boyer – Big Brother Network (BBN): As a superfan of Big Brother, how did the experience compare with your expectations?
Donny Thompson: It was all I ever thought about and then some. It was a lot better than you can think and a lot worse than you can think.
BBN: Your social game was often quiet and reserved. Was that always your plan or a result of an early incident in the season?
Donny: If you would have polled everyone in the house on who they liked, I would have probably been on the top of most of their list. Just because I wasn’t loud and talkative doesn’t mean I wasn’t playing a good social game. I was going in trying to be likable and let people come to me, so that was my plan.
BBN: If you had stayed and won the next HoH, which two HGs would you have nominated?
