It was double eviction week last Thursday on Big Brother 13, as two of the strongest players left in the game were voted out.
Veterans Danielle Donato and Jeff Schroeder were evicted, joining fellow veteran Brendon Villegas in the jury house. In new interviews, both Danielle and Jeff speak out on their evictions, what they would have done differently and their thoughts on being able to play the game twice.
Below are excerpts from Danielle’s interview with Reality Wanted –
Q. RealityWanted: What prompted to you to turn on your alliance with the veterans so early in the game?
A. Daniele: I knew that Jeff was going to be really hard to get out later on in the game. I had a really tight alliance with Brendon and Rachel. They were the perfect alliance member because they were strong competitors and huge targets. I knew that with Dominic the four of us could run the house. Period. Also, Brendon and Jeff walked around the house just bullying everyone, including me. I didn’t want any part of that. I am my own person and wanted to make my own moves and not base things on what Brendon and Jeff told me what to do.
Q. RealityWanted: Did you expect to be backdoored by Jeff? He has said in the past that that’s not how he plays.
A. Daniele: Jeff walks around that house preaching integrity and honesty. The reason I didn’t backdoor Jeff was because he accused me of attacking him on a personal level in week three in trying to back door him. I wanted to prove that it wasn’t personal. The only reason he backdoored me was because he held a personal grudge and wanted to make a big move.
Q. RealityWanted: Your relationships with Kalia and Porsche seem genuine. Are they friendships that you will carry outside of the game?
A. Daniele: I never came into this house expecting A. to make friends and B. to make friends with girls. I cannot wait to have real friendships with these people outside of the house. Kalia and Porsche are both amazing women. Those friendships were real and they will last forever.
Q. RealityWanted: What was the best part about getting to play the game a second time?
A. Daniele: I think the best part is knowing what I’m getting myself into and being able to appreciate the whole experience more.
Below are excerpts from Jeff’s interview with Reality Wanted –
Q. RealityWanted: What was the fight this week with Shelly about? Is it because she told Rachel that you threw the cornhole challenge?
A. Jeff: It was just to call Shelly out. She made three deals with other people in the house. That might have been my demise, but it happened the way it happened. I wasn’t scared of anyone in the house, but ultimately, that was my demise. Either way, I’m out and they are in.
Q. RealityWanted: Are you surprised that she suddenly turned on your alliance?
A. Jeff: Shocked. I thought I would be friends with Shelly after the game – and I want to say that it is all just a game – but for Shelly to do something like that really hurt. Right now, it stings, but we’ll see how I feel at the finale.
Q. RealityWanted: Playing a week’s worth of Big Brother in one night might be great television but it seems pretty terrible if you’re a player and end up on the wrong side of things. Could things have gone differently if tonight’s events took place over the course of a week?
A. Jeff: I don’t know what I could have done to prepare even if I had known, but I definitely would not have had it out with Shelly yesterday.
In other BB news, TMZ is reporting today that Shelly Moore’s family has met with the FBI over the death threats they had been receiving following Jeff’s eviction. Some deranged fans were apparently leaving frightening calls and emails for Shelly’s loved ones.
Fortunately, the FBI has determined that none of the threats were “credible.” Sources close to Shelly’s family also reveal that the threats have essentially stopped in the last couple of days. Good.
And finally, a new live eviction episode of Big Brother airs tonight on CBS. HOH Porsche was forced to put up two of her own alliance members after opening up the Pandora box and unleashing the pairs twist back on the house. Up for eviction are Shelly and Adam. It appears Shelly will be the one getting the boot unless she is able to pull off a last minute miracle. The episode airs tonight at 9/8c.
