Brendon Villegas was the eighth eviction from the “Big Brother 12” house. He tells Zap2it about his experience and what is next for his romance with fellow hamster Rachel Reilly.
Are you glad you did “Big Brother”? Was it a good experience overall?
Absolutely, it was an amazing experience. It’s something that people will never understand until you are inside that house. Incredible experience.
Why did it seem like you had no social game? Why did you cut off everyone in the house and just stick with Rachel? Do you think you would’ve had a better chance if you weren’t aligned with her right away?
Honestly, I probably would have had a better chance [not being aligned with Rachel], but even knowing that, I would still have aligned with her. Wouldn’t change anything about that.
What is next for you and Rachel? Do you truly believe she might be the girl for you?
I think a lot of fireworks and a lot of growing. It will be nice to be together outside of the house and maybe sometime in the near future live in the same city.
If you could have dinner with any three people (real of fictitious/ from any time period, dead or alive), which three people would you choose and why?
Albert Einstein – one of the greatest minds ever. He was a brilliant scientist and an amazing humanist.
Ghandi – his motivation was always peace (even in times of war) and that’s what I want to be about.
Queen Elizabeth 1 – one of the first (if not the first) female rulers and she was a trend setter.
Who are you rooting for to make it to the final 2 now that you are out of the game?
Ragan because he fought really hard to be there. And Enzo.
Do you think that everyone dislikes Rachel because she was perceived as annoying or because they were genuinely afraid of her game?
I think they were definitely afraid of her game – but also afraid of her as a person. She never backed down to anyone in that house. A lot of people in the house walk on egg shells and that just wasn’t her style.
“Big Brother” airs Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday nights at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. Check back here later tonight to find out who the latest HOH has nominated for eviction.
