You told Julie that you didn’t campaign to stay and picked a fight with the HOH because “I just gave up.” Do you regret that and wished you had kept your game face on in those final days?
If I learned anything from this season, it was that no one was going to do anything for me, outside of Cody. If I was going to stay in the house, I had to win competitions. I needed to win veto for myself and when that didn’t happen, I knew it was a pretty much a done deal. Constant negativity is hard to deal with. I gave it my all. Being a target for six weeks is really exhausting. At the end, I lost and I have to accept that.
Fan favorite Janelle Pierzina returns to BIG BROTHER for the third summer. She first competed on BIG BROTHER in Season 6, when she finished in third place, but she took home “America’s Favorite Player.” She also finished in third place in season 7, BIG BROTHER: ALL-STARS. This very physical and competitive player sees returning as a mentor as a positive. According to Janelle, she’s “good at keeping people together and getting people on my side… the coaching dynamic is perfect for my gameplay.” While this 32-year-old is returning as a mentor to play her own game, she hopes to make it past third place this time. Her strategy to do so: “try and keep my team together as much as possible and possibly pick up some other alliance members along the way.” You can be sure that her husband and baby girl home in Minnesota will be rooting for her this summer. 
The second time? Jessie was totally running the house. His side was steamrolling things. He had at the very least Lydia, Natalie and Chima all as massive toadies of his that would have done anything he wanted, and he easily would have all beaten in the end. He also had Russell and Kevin on his side. I think without the coup de tat the guy essentially runs the game as much as Paul did this season. he was no questions asked one of the most screwed players of all time. I feel real bad for him as the entire week leading up to his eviction he was pissed off about not getting to play for veto and figured he'd be backdoored through a twist and that's exactly what happened.
