Tiffany Rousso found herself evicted this week without the support that saved her the week before but even an extra chance to get back in the game with the Battle Back twist wasn’t enough to keep her Big Brother 18 run alive. Now she’s out of the house and telling us what she thought of the season and the Houseguests she played against.
The bar was raised high for Tiffany after last season’s performance by her sister Vanessa Rousso and that really crippled her chances. I asked Tiffany why she took heat for her sibling connection while Paulie didn’t, who is playing the best game, which HG she wanted to join her at the end, and more.
Big Brother Network: What proved to be the biggest challenge you encountered but didn’t anticipate going in to BB18?
Tiffany Rousso: How hard everybody was playing right out the gate.
BBN: Why do you think HGs treated you differently than Paulie despite you both were siblings of former HGs?
Tiffany: Vanessa was a stronger player than Cody and they were afraid of me playing the same game.
BBN: Who is playing the best game right now?
Tiffany: Right now Nicole and Paulie are playing very strong games. Unfortunately Frank has been caught in Da’Vonne’s web of lies so he has been made a target by a lot of Houseguests. Had he not, he would be coasting to the finals.
BBN: If you had won your way back in to the house, who would you want to take to the F2 with you?
Tiffany: In the beginning I wanted to go with either Day, or Paulie. But that changed quickly as the weeks went on. Right now I wouldn’t have minded going with Bridgette. She’s a strong enough player but not as strong as me… she didn’t talk much game, other than to Frank.
BBN: Thank you, Tiffany.
Tiffany definitely got a raw deal due to her connection to Vanessa, but she also got the chance to be on Big Brother 18 because of her connection to Vanessa so it’s hard to have it both ways.
I do wonder what kind of game she could have played without the Rousso name behind her as it made other HGs nervous and her own self-imposed expectations guided many of her game decisions like her own personal albatross. Tiffany certainly had her moments this season, but now her game is done.
