Morning of Jackie’s DE eviction you joked that Steve would win, nominate your alliance, and then evict Jackie. Why do you think he ended up doing that for real?
Meg: Looks like I should never make a joke again! Looking back on everything now, I think that Steve had been working with Vanessa or Austin and the twins and that was their plan of attack all along. It was a way to break up James, Jackie and I which really was a turning point in the game.
How did your strategy going in to the game stand up with how you ended up having to play?
Meg: My strategy coming in was to lay low and make friends with everyone in the beginning. Then, I would try to make big moves later in the game. Within the house, there were a lot of people that started the game off way stronger than I expected so I felt like I had to adapt to this. I do feel like I succeeded in becoming friends with everyone and having a strong social game.
Fans have asked, were your knees an obstacle for you in competitions?
Meg: Honestly, I wanted to do my best to never have that come in play in any part of my game. I knew coming in, my surgery would be challenge but I’m a strong girl that really did my best out there.
What is the biggest mystery you’re anxious to have answered once Big Brother 17 is over?
Meg: The mystery votes at the beginning of the season. There was always one vote that was off. Also, I’m dying to watch Audrey’s blanket days!
