Andrew Gordon, a 39 year-old podiatrist from Miami Beach, FL, found himself the latest house-guest to be eliminated from Big Brother12.
In a new interview with PEOPLE, Andrew aka Captain Kosher, discusses his elimination despite being a pawn, his eviction speech, finding out about Matt‘s lie, and why he thinks Rachel is an “idiot.”
Excerpts from Andrew’s interview below –
What do you think was your biggest mistake in the house was? I shot myself in the foot with the speech that I gave during the veto meeting and couldn’t recover.
During that speech, you lied and said you were coming after Rachel and Brendon. Had you stayed in the house and won HOH, who would your targets have been? I would have targeted Kristen and Hayden with the intent of getting Kristen out of the house.
Julie Chen called [your speech] “the best plea speech I’ve ever seen.” I think it was on of the top eviction speeches ever. I hope people don’t take it to heart after the show is over with. If I had more time, I would’ve liked to have exposed the Lane and Matt connection.
You lied about your profession but now that you know the truth about Matt, do you feel he went too far? It’s part of the game. Some people in the world believe he did go too far. I believe that when you go into the house, it is a game and you should never take anything personally.
What did you think of Rachel’s goodbye message when she accused you of trying to get between her and her man? Rachel is an idiot. I think if anything I saved her man and now she repays me by sending me out. I want to ask her that when she gets out as well.
Nominated for eviction tonight are Hayden and ‘girlfriend’ Kristen, as Britney did not use the POV to save either of them. The plan by HOH Rachel is to get Kristen out, but we will find out tonight if that works.
TELL US – WHO DO YOU WANT TO SEE LEAVE THE SHOW? WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE?
It is the fourth week in the Big Brother household as Andrew Gordon, the 39-year-old Jewish podiatrist from Miami Beach, Fl, found himself the latest houseguest to be ousted.
Andrew however did not leave the house quietly. In what is being called one of the most memorable eviction speeches ever, Andrew made sure to out Kristen and Hayden’s secret showmance, much to the shock of many of the houseguests.
And in what seems like deja vu, the fake boobed wonder known as Rachel is once again the reigning HOH.
It also seems the not so brilliant folks behind BB12 have realized this season has been a tad boring, especially when you add in the failure of the Saboteur twist. It was announced on Thursday’s live show that the Saboteur twist will be returning, but this time it will only be for 2 weeks and America will get to choose which houseguest we want as the Saboteur. The chosen HG will however be given the opportunity to decline. If they choose to accept the challenge, they will receive $20,000 if they survive the 2 weeks. Something tells me Matt will be the perfect man for the job.
Below are spoilers for this week, and is it just me or has this season of BB been lackluster thus far? There aren’t really any likable people to root for. The brigade is annoying, Brendon seemed somewhat likable in the beginning and I even deemed him to be this season’s Jeff but his ridiculous showmance with the bimbo has taken away from him, Britney is annoying, Kristen is boring and only seems to want to ride Hayden‘s coattails, Ragan is a floater and Kathy who?
Plus it’s the fourth week and the house is still unaware of the Brigade alliance? How is this even possible? Do they not see the meetings these four seem to have a lot of? Sighs.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON BB12 SO FAR? WHO ARE YOU ROOTING FOR?
Life goes on in the Big Brother household just days after the biggest fail in the history of BB twists.
Annie Whittington, 27, was revealed as the Saboteur last Thursday. Only one major problem. Annie was also the first house-guest to be evicted from the Big Brother house, basically ruining the “big twist” this season.
While Big Brother deserves major kudos for at least picking a woman to be the moleAmerica’s Player Saboteur, one has to ask, what the heck were they thinking in picking Annie? She was a terrible choice to be the Saboteur as she simply talked too much, did too much, and annoyed her housemates to no end. A lot of TV viewers are wondering why Annie got sent home over Rachel, and it was simply because her housemates found her obnoxious and annoying. The TV editing for some reason did not touch on the fact that the HGs didn’t like her. To sum it up, Annie was simply the wrong person to do the job, and the fact that she couldn’t even last a week in the BB house speaks volumes. Someone like Kristen or Kathy would have been better suited. The Big Brother Saboteur twist equals a MAJOR FAIL.
Zap2It is however reporting the first eliminated HGs, including Annie, will be sequestered. This means there’s a very good chance one of the first 3 – 5 eliminated HGs will be brought back into the game. Plus we still have the lifelong friends twist, so perhaps all hope is not lost for Big Brother 12.
Moving on to this week’s happenings. Rachel surprisingly won HOH, which means “her man” Brendon is safe. Also coming up in tonight’s episode, we get to see Rachel’s nominees and the HGs will find out Annie was the Saboteur.
In today’s spoilers, we reveal the nominees and the POV winner, plus it seems a certain someone isn’t being so true to his Brigade alliance. Find out who below!
TELL US – WERE YOU DISAPPOINTED WITH THE SABOTEUR TWIST? PLUS WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE?
It’s just week 1 in the Big Brother household and a lot is starting to unfold already!
The premiere episode ended with housemate Hayden winning the Head of Household, while Andrew, who volunteered to sit out the HOH competition was declared ineligible for eviction.
The biggest surprise comes in the form of a new twist. The Saboteur delivered a message to the houseguests informing them that two of their cast members are lifelong friends and already had an alliance before entering the BB game. No word yet on who the two HGs are.
In this week’s spoilers, the two nominees are revealed as well as the POV winner. A showmance is also brewing between two of the housemates, can you guess who?
Tonight is the long awaited premiere of CBS’s summer hit reality show – Big Brother!
Big Brother 12 debuts tonight at 8 p.m. EDT. As usual, the show will air three episodes a week. This season will be on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. The uncensored nightly broadcast will continue to air on Showtime as well.
13 contestants are vying for the $500,000 prize this season but it wouldn’t exactly be Big Brother without a big twist. The twist this year is that there is a Saboteur who has been planted among the houseguests to do viewers’ bidding and disrupt the players’ lives throughout the competition.
However the ‘Saboteur,’ who will be revealed to the viewers on July 15, isn’t eligible to win the $500,000 prize. According to the show’s producers, the inside man/woman isn’t an actor, but a real player who went through the same casting process as the rest of the houseguests.
And though the show has yet to premiere, the houseguests have already moved in and are already playing the game as we speak. You can click below to get a free sneak peek at what’s going on in the house!
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.
This season’s SurvivorHeroes vs Villains is being hailed by many as being one of the best ever. The ratings also proved to be great, as they were up from last May with over 13 million viewers tuning in.
There is however some controversy over Sandra Diaz-Twine being crowned the winner. Some feel Parvati Shallow deserved to win, while others feel fan favorite Russell Hantz should have won. One person who agrees with the later is none other than Russell himself. In a new interview with ET, Russell, 37, feels he won in his head and also believes he played a good social game despite what his Survivor peers believe.
Excerpts from Russell’s interview below –
ET: Do you feel robbed? This is the second time you made it to the end and didn’t win?
Russell Hantz: When I win the Player of the Game, the MVP of the game, then my argument is legitimate. I am not just saying it. I am not being cocky. It is fact. The fans think I played the best twice. They voted me the fan favorite. I won twice. It is amazing that people get so bitter and can’t vote the way they are supposed to vote. All these weak people who play this game.
ET: All season the voted off survivors told me that they didn’t think you had a good social game. You didn’t receive a single vote last night. Do you think that is why?
Russell Hantz: They are saying I have a strategic game, but not a social game? Look what I did at Tribal Council. People say that, but they get their feelings hurt so much because my social game is so good. Look how I switched the vote at Tribal Council. It was supposed to be Rupert, and Danielle went home. I looked at Jerri and said, “Danielle.” If that doesn’t say right there that my social game was brilliant… How can you get somebody to switch their vote just by looking at them and saying the other girl’s name?
Russell Hantz: She trusted me. She believed me. That is why. She believed me the entire time. They could have ganged up on me. I was one person out there. If I was that weak and they couldn’t take me out, it makes me look even better. If I am that good at intimidation, I am even better.
ET: Was it harder playing this the second time with survivors who had played before?
Russell Hantz: It was really hard. The first time was a piece of cake. It was laughable. The second season was tough. There were really tough players out there. Parvati was really good. Boston Rob, Cirie, Candice and Amanda are all really good players.
ET: Do you think you were at an advantage because they didn’t see your game?
Russell Hantz: I think it was equally the same. Everybody thinks I have a huge advantage, but they were all friends. They all went to events together and know each other. I am sure they were calling each other on the phone before it all started. I didn’t have that advantage. Also, my disadvantage was that I had just played 39 days of a very strategic game. Also, I was physically whipped because I had just played 39 days in a very physical game. You can definitely say I was at an advantage because they didn’t see me play, but you also say, I had a disadvantage because they had advantages on their side, too.
