daniele dominic big brother 13 'Big Brother 13's' Dominic Briones: Daniele 'is the best player in there'Dominic Briones was the third houseguest evicted from “Big Brother 13.” He got swept up in Daniele’s plan to backdoor Jeff and was taken out. He tells Zap2it that he should’ve aligned with the Veterans sooner.

Are you glad you went on “Big Brother”? Was it everything you hoped it would be?

“I am def glad I went on Big Brother. It was everything and more than I thought it would be. It was a blast and I wouldn’t change anything about it.”

Do you regret aligning with Daniele, now that her aggressive game play got you eliminated?

“No, not at all. Dani wasn’t afraid to make big moves and kind of mixed the game up as well which is the kind of player I am. The two of us could be standing in very different situations if our plan had worked out.”

How come you never pointed out to Jeff that Brendon and Rachel were considering backdooring him?

“There was no point for me to go against Brendon, Rachel and Dani at that point. Playing with Jeff and Jordan weren’t as strong as playing with the other three, and I wouldn’t want to turn against the plan that was already in motion and that Brendon, Rachel and Dani were all committed to at the time. And going through with that plan, would have still kept me behind three huge targets in Brendon, Rachel and Dani.”

If you could do one thing differently, what would it be?

“Play with the veterans sooner and not stick with the newbies during the first two weeks of the game. I would have aligned with the vets and started cutting newbies from the beginning.”

Was it harder than you expected?

“Definitely harder than I ever expected. The twists of having the veterans and newbies together was tough, and then having the pairs on top of that!”

Who are you rooting for now that you are out? Just Daniele?

“Dani – 100% I think she is the best player in there and is one of the only ones actually willing to play the game and go against what is going on in the house and risk everything she’s got.”

Any messages to your fans?

“Thanks for your support – I love all of you guys! If you ever see me, please don’t hesitate to come up to talk to me. I love people, especially my amazing Big Brother fans. Hit me up online because I will definitely respond.”
