Annie Whittington

Annie Whittington of Big Brother

Annie Whittington, a 27 year-old bartender from Tampa, FL, found herself the first houseguest to be eliminated from the 12th season of Big Brother last week.

Not only did Annie get the boot, but she was also revealed to be the Saboteur, so her elimination also took away the big BB twist this season.

In a new interview with PEOPLE, Annie opens about her sexuality, her downfall, what she would have done differently, and why Rachel is getting her “sloppy seconds.”

Excerpts from Annie’s interview below -

Did being the Saboteur hurt your game and cause your eviction?
I was really stressed out all the time. I was always worried about getting caught or someone calling me out or someone discovering I was the Saboteur. It probably changed my mental approach to the game and made me more emotional.

Going in, what was your game plan? Why would you align yourself with a showmance like Brendan and Rachel?
My strategy was to lay low and not be dramatic but I did the opposite the second I entered the house. I did not think I was actually aligning myself with a showmance and I would have never entered into that alliance had I known. That was a mistake on my part. I did my best to try and get them out of the house.

You said in your exit interview with Julie Chen, that Rachel could have your “sloppy seconds.” What exactly, did you mean by that?
Nothing ever happened with Brendon. He came onto me early on in the game and I denied him. I am very happy in my own relationship. But I don’t think Rachel knew any of that. But in all actuality, he wanted me, not her.

What would you have done differently?
I would not have played so hard so fast. I would have not trusted Brendon as much as I did and ultimately that is what led to my demise in this game and the biggest reason why I am gone. I should have laid low.

How does it feel to not only be the first one evicted, but to also be the first Saboteur?
I’m honored to be the first Saboteur as I am a big fan of the show and now I guess I am also a part of BB history. And I’m honored that people had enough confidence in me to pull it off. But I’m a bit embarrassed to be the first person to leave the house. But maybe I can take it as a compliment that people thought I was enough of a threat to get me out so early.

You opened up to Ragan, who is openly gay. Why weren’t you more open about your sexuality? Was that fear or game-play?
I opened to Ragan because I needed to tell someone. I was keeping it all bottled up inside and it was effecting me emotionally. That was hindering my personality from coming out during the game. I had a strong relationship with the guys and I knew they were attracted to me so I didn’t reveal it to them. I wanted to be able to play off of that and use it to my advantage.

You had such a strong argument in your final plea, where you surprised by the landslide vote against you?
Honestly I wasn’t shocked, but surprised by the vote of ten to zero. I thought some of the other house guests would rally for me. It hurt my feelings, but I understand it is a game.

Besides your alliance with Rachel and Brendon, were you aware of any other alliances?
Yes, I know Britney, Monet and Kathy are in one. And maybe Hayden made deal with Brendon and Rachel. Everyone else seems to be swaying back and forth, but alliances are being made.

A new episode of BB12 is set to air tonight.  Rachel nominated Britney and Monet for eviction on Sunday, and tonight we will find out the POV winner, and whether or not the nominations will change.

TELL US: WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON ANNIE’S INTERVIEW AND TONIGHT’S EPISODE OF BB?

Annie Whittington of Big BrotherRachel Reilly of Big Brother

Tonight’s episode of Big Brother will bring the first elimination of the new season.

On the block are Annie Whittington, a 27-year-old bartender from Tampa, Fl and Rachel Reilly, a 26-year-old chemist/cocktail waitress from Las Vegas.

Judging from last night’s episode, it seems Annie will be the first house guest to leave. The other HGs have revealed they simply deem her a bigger threat than Rachel. Also not shown on TV, Annie has been wrecking major havoc in the house since being on the block, and it seems the other HGs are simply tired of her.

Also tonight, the ‘Saboteur‘ will finally be unveiled! It’s anyone’s guess who it is. The HGs seem to suspect Andrew.

Another twist revealed this week was that two of the HGs are lifelong friends. Britney suspected Brendon and Kristen because she didn’t buy their reactions, while Kristen suspected Matt and Annie because they hadn’t interacted but had more in common than any of the other house guests.

The only thing that’s clear is that this season of Big Brother is one to watch! The new episode airs tonight at 8:00 pm Eastern on CBS.

My Thoughts So Far: Big Brother is indeed my favorite reality show and I must say this season has been great thus far. I wasn’t that impressed with the Saboteur twist, but this lifelong friends twist however has me very intrigued. Now that’s the kinda twist I like!

Saboteur – I really have no clue on who the Saboteur is though I highly doubt it’s Andrew, that would simply be too obvious right? He is too reminiscent of former America’s player Eric. I truly believe (and hope) it is a woman this time around. I suspect Kathy, Annie or Monet. Plus if you notice, the physical stature of the Saboteur seems to be of a smaller stature, similar to that of a woman. But then again, perhaps Big Brother is just screwing with us and has altered the size of the Saboteur. Must say I can’t wait to find out who it actually is tonight.

Lifelong Friends – This is such a great twist, similar to the Twins twist they had in the past. There are a lot of theories as to who these could be. The biggest one is that it is Kathy and Britney, and that they are mother and daughter. Remember during the message to the HGs, the Saboteur said: “And if you think about it, it’s actually quite easy to figure out.” Well Kathy and Britney are both from Arkansas, plus the Saboteur did put Xs on both of their names earlier on, perhaps as a clue to the HGs. Another theory is that if they are not mother and daughter, they are at least related.  Another theory is that Matt & Ragan might be brothers.

Brigade Alliance – The Brigade, yikes! This could possibly be the dumbest alliance in BB history. Enzo nicknaming himself Meow Meow? Priceless. There are so many flaws with this alliance. For starters, they will be discovered by the other HGs any minute now. Two, one thing I’ve learned from watching BB is that joining an alliance too quickly is always a bad idea, plus the number of people in the alliance, four, is one too many for the time being. And finally, there are simply one too many idiots in the alliance aka Enzo, Hayden. I am really hoping someone not it the alliance wins HOH tonight and hopefully puts up two people from the alliance.

Showmance – How hot is Brendon by the way? But in all seriousness, it seems Brendon and Rachel are getting way too caught up in their showmance and it is without a doubt affecting their game play. Rachel saying she would have saved Brendon had she won POV was very adorable, but really, has she forgotten her reason for moving into the BB house? These two being so open with their showmance, so soon, is also a bad idea. People are not going to want to go into an alliance with them because they know Brendon and Rachel will always be loyal to each other and put the other first. With that said, I really do like Brendon and am rooting for him.

TELL US: WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON BB SO FAR? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE SABOTEUR? NEW TWIST, BRIGADE & THE SHOWMANCE?

Big Brother 12

CBS has now unveiled the cast of the best reality show ever hit reality show Big Brother. The 13 houseguests that will be taking part in the 12th season of what CBS is dubbing the “Summer of Sabotage,” include a model, a bartender, and a chemistry graduate student who is also a VIP cocktail waitress.

But what everyone wants to know is what is the big twist this season? Well according to executive producer Allison Grodner, a mole has been planted among the houseguests to do the viewers’ bidding and disrupt the players’ lives during this season which debuts July 8 at 8 p.m. ET.

The mole, who will be revealed to viewers during the July 15 episode, is being called the Saboteur and isn’t eligible to win the $500,000 grand prize.

“For the first time ever, we have someone in the house who, in a way, is playing their own game,” said Grodner, who stressed that the operative is not an actor but a real person who was picked alongside everyone else. “They’re playing for a cash prize, if they make it a certain amount of time in the house. If they don’t last, they’re out, and their cover is blown.”

The Saboteur is similar to season 8′s introduction of “America’s Player,” which allowed one contestant, Eric Stein, to complete viewer-voted tasks for cash, unbeknownst to his house mates. The main difference this time however is that the cast will be made aware of the saboteur’s existence beforehand.

Julie Chen returns as the show’s host.
