RC: What made you want to be a part of Big Brother? Were you a fan of previous seasons?
Carol: Honestly, I had never watched a season before the whole audition process. To be frank, I had no intention of ever being on a reality show. I just wanted to finish my degree, get on with my whole, and be an adult. This was never something I intended to do.
RC: Was it hard to adjust to being confined to a house & cut off from the rest of the world?
Carol: It wasn’t necessarily being confined that was hard. It was being followed by cameras, having no privacy, and being paranoid the entire time
RC: When you heard housemates had rivals in the house, did you think you would be the one to have a rival?
Carol: I had no idea that I would be one of the ones to have a rival. I couldn’t think of anything that would be entertaining, in my opinion, about a conflict in my life. I really did not think it would be me.
RC: What is the main problem between you & Jessica, besides you once owed her five dollars?
Carol: I have no idea what the cause of the conflict would be. We were best of friends in middle school. In 8th grade, we got into a fight about I don’t know what. Apparently, five dollars. It was 7 years ago, I was 13. It had to be something so pathetic & petty that it wasn’t even significant. I just remember a fight on my front porch, we were yelling at each other, and I went in the house & slammed the door. We went to school the next day & ignored each other.
RC: You handled yourself well sitting with host Julie Chen last night watching the nasty things Jessica said about you. What was going through your mind?
Carol: When I saw the things that Jessica said about me, at first, I was angry. I was like, “Are you kidding me?” I never said one thing about her while I was in the house. I gave her the benefit of the doubt. I felt bad for her, she showed America how immature she is, and that’s sad that that’s how she wants to show herself.
RC: What friendships did you form in the house during your time on Big Brother?Carol: I had a great time with Jen & with Kail. I think those two girls are amazing & I wish them the best of luck. I’m so excited that Jen is HOH. I hope she kicks Jessica outta there! The boys were sketchy though, not so much friend-types.
RC: You only received 1 vote to stay in the house. Were you hurt or were you just up against a tougher competitor, Amber?
Carol: I did not think that Amber was a tough competitor at all! Nobody wants to be the odd man out, nobody wants to cause that vote that would make them a target for next week. Everyone wanted to vote me out because they didn’t want to stir up competition or make it a close vote, like a 5-6.
RC: What do you think contributed to you being the first one evicted from the Big Brother house?
Carol: It was simply the fact that, to the other players, I was willing & able to go home & okay with it. Amber was crying every 5 minutes saying, “Please, please, I can’t go home” where as I was saying I was homesick. I was ready to go home the minute I walked out my front door. It’s okay, I didn’t go for the money, I went because I thought it would be fun.
RC: Have you watched any of the show yet & were you surprised to learn anything once leaving the house?
Carol: I have not been able to watch any of the shows until after my interviews. You can call me back after I watch them & I’ll tell you what I think!
RC: What are your future plans?
Carol: I am going back to college. I’m on summer vacation so I didn’t have to take a break. I’m going back to University of Kansas, then I’ll get a job, and be an adult. I’m a business/marketing major. I have a dream of becoming an executive CEO of a marketing firm & dominating!
A new episode of Big Brother airs this Sunday on CBS
