Joe Arvin shouted and shouted and shouted his way through Big Brother 14 but after surviving multiple nominations he finally fell to the numbers game. It was time for him to go this week after Ian secured the Veto in the second PoV competition of the double eviction night. I had the chance to put a few questions to Joe about his alliances, the biggest mistake he made, and who he wants to see at the finale.
Big Brother Network (BBN): Your allegiance in the game seemed to shift quite often. Who do you feel was your closest, most trusted ally in throughout the game?
Joe Arvin: Shane was the ally that I picked to stick with to the end. Side alliances just seemed to be a part of this season. Not many people stuck together as power shifted. With the coaches I was unable to make my real choices till week three.
BBN: You made it the farthest in the game out of the entire “Team Janelle.” Do you think your team would have survived longer if Janelle had stayed?
Joe Arvin: No – I think that there was too much gossip spread throughout the house about Janelle. I won’t know till the end what was true or false. For now I will believe in my coach.
BBN: If you had one do-over in the game this season, what would it be and why?
Joe Arvin: I sure would have never told Dan (I thought Shane) my conversation with Dan.
BBN: Who would you like to see in the Final 2 and, if different, who do you think it will be in the Final 2?
Joe Arvin: I would like to see Shane and Ian and I think if allowed Dan will make it far.
BBN: Thank you, Joe.
Well Joe managed to get through the season without winning a single competition. As he assured Julie on Thursday, that was not part of his plan, it was just how things turned out. As an alternate this season I did not have the chance to interview Joe beforehand so it was hard for me to accept him as an official houseguest. Eventually though his style of stirring the pot and causing trouble made him an enjoyable player even if his consistently low popularity poll earnings showed most of the audience didn’t feel the same way.
Now Joe will head off to Jury House where he’ll relax, cook, and SHOUT to his fellow jury members until we see him again on finale night.
