I caught up with Matt today via email and got his thoughts on Ragan, the brigade, and the diamond power of veto. Check out what he had to say of Big Brother 12:
AR: Had you not put up Kathy with the diamond power of veto who would it have been and why?
MH: It would have been Britney and I actually said I would use her and talked myself out of it and choose Kathy. I would have picked Britney because she was a strong competitor and I wanted to stack the house with strong competitors in hopes to get Brendon out. It didn’t work.
AR: Do you think you overplayed the wife sympathy card with the fake illness?
MH: I don’t think I overplayed it.
AR: Do you think Britney questioned your loyalty after you threw Ragan under the bus?
MH: I think Britney had my loyalty in question prior to that and I think throwing Ragan under the bus may have increased that distrust. I think she had it out for me before that though.
AR: Last week you told everyone Ragan was the most loyal guy in the house, why then trust the brigade over him when they seem so disloyal to you?
MH: Because in this game you have to play with your head and not your heart. My head was telling me that this was a numbers game and I needed to be with the numbers. The Brigade was loyal enough that they never would have put me up on the block, but not loyal enough to not vote me out if someone else put me up.
AR: If you could give any one HG advice on winning, who would it be and why?
MH: My advice would be for Ragan. I would tell him not to trust the Brigade and to align with Britney.
AR: What are your future plans with the band Shooting Blanks?
MH: The band has been broken up for two years now at least. My plans were nothing, but if I come out of this and find out that there is a resurgence of demand then we’ll see what happens. We are all still friends so there is the possibility of a reunion tour.
I was surprised to see that Matt would have chosen Britney over Enzo if he hadn’t put Kathy on the block with the DPoV. I don’t understand why there’s so much loyalty to the meow meow but whatever lol.
