Allison Grodner Interview: Wasted Bonus Life, Next Twist, & ‘Most Improved’ Houseguest

Julie Chen hosts Big Brother 20

It was another solid week for Big Brother 20 as the Houseguests delivered in the chaos department thanks to yet another blindside eviction vote that boiled over in the live show. Adding more to the situation was Sam’s decision not to use her gifted power, but was that the right move? And now that the App Store twist is done, what’s next? Okay, we knew EP Allison Grodner probably wouldn’t tell us much there, but we had to ask! Read one for what she had to say for this round of Big Brother.

Big Brother Network: Sam decided not to use her Bonus Life on the Bros. Now it could go to anyone next week. Do you think Sam made the right choice and what would you have done in Sam’s position?

Grodner: I think Sam could have been more strategic with the bonus life and used it to gain two new allies by promising it to the bros this week. That being said, by saving it until she needed it, Sam has protection for this week if she becomes the target.

BBN: The BB App Store is done, but surely that’s not the last twist of the season, right? What do you have coming up for us next?

Grodner: If I tell you, I will have to kill you. Jk

BBN: Now in Week 4, which HG has surprised you the most in improving their position in the game?

Grodner: JC. It may appear he is a floater and everybody’s friend but JC is playing hard. He is in good with both sides of the house but clearly aligned with Level 6/6 and in a side alliance with Tyler.

BBN: Thank you!

You’ve heard the EP’s take on this week, now what’s yours? Do you think Sam made the right move? And what about the most improved HG for you? Share your thoughts below!
