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.
