Big Brother 24’s Brittany ‘Was So Confused’ by Michael’s Speech

Brittany HoopesStill has questions following her eviction Big BrotherSeason 24 will begin on Thursday, September 22.

The 32-year-old hypnotherapist was evicted at four by the veto winner Monte Taylor, is reflecting upon where she went wrong in her game.

“I wish I would’ve been able to – when I had kind of what I would consider ‘bogus conversations’ or conversations that were kind of fluff – I wish I would’ve gone back to the people that I worked with and said, ‘Hey, so-and-so said this. It’s bogus. Don’t believe it, but I want you to know,’” Brittany exclusively tells Us Weekly. “I think I did that occasionally, but there [were] some times that I’m recognizing that people believed other people over me because I just didn’t give them a heads up.”

Brittany was there the week before with her closest ally Michael BrunerDuring the double eviction. She was a little irritated by his eviction speech, but he did the most surprising thing.

“I literally in that moment had no clue what was going on,” Brittany says. “I had no idea that the house felt any sort of type of way against me. Michael was aware that I had conversations with other houseguests and even about him. So, the fact that Michael was kind of throwing my under the bus in this moment, was so confusing to me, and I completely trusted him with my entire gaming game. And I just was very confused to hear that he was kind of, you know, using elements of my game that he was well aware of and OK with sort of against me in that moment.”

She adds, “As far as talking to him and jury, I have so many questions. I consider him a lifelong friendship. I just want to understand why he felt the need drag me down with his. I would’ve thought he had the self-awareness to know that if we were on the block together, there was nothing he could say or do that would save him. Why not keep it clean? That was what was surprising to me.”

Brittany tells me what Brittany would do differently about the game. Us, “I think I would make sure that when I’m having conversations with other houseguests – maybe that I’m not as closely aligned to – even if I know they’re bogus and they go to the spam filter of my mind, I would’ve brought that information back to the people that I was working with and said, ‘Hey, so-and-so approached me about this. It’s not real. Sure, I told them yes, whatever, but you know, just know between us that I’m working with you.’ I would’ve reassured the people that I was working with a little bit more, so there couldn’t be any sort of miscommunication. For me, I just kind of put it out of my mind, didn’t think much of it, but you know, word gets around occasionally and sometimes people don’t confront you and you aren’t able to explain yourself.”

The Big Brother 24Finale will air on CBS on Sunday September 25th, at 8 p.m. ET/PT
