Audrey didn’t attend the Power of Veto Ceremony and became the first HG to do so. Does she regret that decision?
Audrey: Yes, as a Big Brother fan, I do. But only people in that house understand, I was so overwhelmed. What a lot of people don’t see about me, in my real life I’m actually introverted. This whole experience was really hard for me, but something I really wanted to do. I wanted to exemplify the courage for other people to step out and do courageous things like this.
In my real life I deal with things internally and alone. You don’t get that time and space in the house and I know that’s part of the deal. I was just so overwhelmed with the stress of mourning over the inevitable that I just couldn’t physically make myself. I know it’s an excuse and it cheapens it. That’s all I can say. I apologize to Big Brother fans.
Fans thought Audrey could have been laying low in preparation of a Dan’s Funeral type game move, but it didn’t happen. Was there any strategy in hiding or was it the stress?
Audrey: At that point I felt so defeated. After the blow-up with Clay, Vanessa, and Shelli I was thinking “how can I turn this around.” I tried everything. I went to James, the only person I thought I could go to. I thought that if this didn’t put a fire under James’ buns then I’m done.
I was spent. I was drained. I stayed in the Have-Not room for days. People started bringing me food. They started bringing me food. Which was also confusing because Becky’s a Have-Not and she’s the first person to bring me food.
She brought me Slop. It was very nice of her. I took a few bites of it and then she took it back and brought me pizza. I don’t know if that was game play on her part or what, but I totally went for it and I shouldn’t have.
There were a lot of Have-Not rules broken this week. What was going on?
Audrey: That was news to me. That was totally news to me. I can’t describe it. People who had experienced it can maybe empathize but in that moment. Becky was being nice to me and she said, “you can have this” and I’m like okay and I ate it.
What did Audrey think of Vanessa telling HGs that she wouldn’t nominate her since they were both members of the LGBT community and she wanted to see Audrey go far because of that?
