Poor, sweet Bridgette doesn’t have any clue what she is getting herself into. By her own admission, she doesn’t lie, doesn’t have a mean side, and thinks she will be loved by America. When Bridgette gets out of the house, she’s probably going to learn about this thing called “the internet” where no one is loved by America.
Most of Bridgette’s interview was her giggling while Jeff asked hard-hitting strategic questions like, “What do you think of people who jog in place at stop lights?” I wish I was kidding. Unlike nearly every other contestant who quoted their “life motto” from a stupid motivational poster with a picture of an eagle or a sunset on it, Bridgette (likely unknowingly) gained some extra points by taking inspiration from Napoleon Dynamite.
The first thing I noticed in Jozea’s interview was his positioning on the couch in relation to Jeff. He was seated in a way that almost said, “I don’t really want to be talking to you right now”. I think Jeff took that as Jozea playing hard-to-get, because he started kind of hitting on Jozea – telling him how fantastic he looked and saying how cool it would be if they had the exact same outfit on. Polite laughter ensued from Jozea, and although this was one of the worst interviews content-wise, the dynamic was intriguing.
Glenn from the Bronx is going to be so jealous when he sees how much more Jeff was into Jozea than him. Jozea is also the fourth Latin American cast member this season, so props to CBS on their diversity efforts…and my apologies on the network’s behalf to Donald Trump who had to cancel the Big Brother series recording that he had set on his DVR for the summer.
The second of two siblings cast this season, Tiffany is the sister of Season 17’s third place finisher Vanessa Rousso. While I’m sure the Vanessa connection helped get Tiffany’s foot in the door, I did appreciate the fact that she was a long-time fan of Big Brother.
She definitely shares both the voice and mannerisms of Vanessa, and I can’t imagine this one won’t get called out pretty quickly…but she also has the conversational skills of a pineapple, so maybe she just won’t talk enough to get busted. It took Jeff literally 90 seconds of very obvious prying to get Tiffany to explain who her sister was in relation to the game. I love myself a good, sloppy, catastrophic, mess of a player, and Tiffany’s lack of charisma seems like a dull watch and a setup for a pre-jury boot.
