The KING of BBAU22 👑. You played against some huge OGs who are deeply loved and yet you managed to cut through and be a HUGE player well deserving of your grand finale spot and arguably the more deserving winner. Imo you are now one of the “greats.”
I loved watching you and your game develop. You are fun and quirky. A bit of an oddball who doesn’t fit into any particular stereotype. Not the typical gym junkie muscle meat head and yet you were a massive CHALLENGE BEAST. Not a typical ‘pretty boy’ yet you certainly had your fans on here for your looks haha, or even a typical nerd or geek.. Early series I said you were someone I’d like to be mates with, OR someone I’d actually watch a reality show about their life. I feel like you have great self awareness and come across as super comfortable in your own skin and in who you are as a person. I think this games DEMANDS strategy but requires high emotional intelligence and social prowess and you were able to balance it all masterfully. You obviously had a great social game, making it through to the end and you owned your strategy in a way that I think should have been HAILED as a hero.
Also huge props for actually fulfilling the standards you set for yourself and your game in your intro video package. You stayed in the background to cement yourself in the game then came out swinging and landing targets left right and centre when needed. For me, you are the quintessential game player that I LOVE to watch. I mean that so so much.
I could keep going on but you asked for questions, not praise haha. I just honestly feel like you were robbed of a little bit of the experience (not even just talking about the win). Due to a range of circumstances you have been undervalued. Unfortunately I think almost exclusively due to reasons that were outside of your control.
I truly would have been a massive fan even if you didn’t visit us here, but I do want to say thank you so much for coming online and engaging with us. I’m aware that this forum can be a scary place for ex-housemates to engage with a small but fervent group of dedicated BB lovers who passionately love and dislike certain HMs. It’s happened so rarely if at all since channel 7 BB I was so impressed with the way you’ve come, opened yourself to some severe criticism and been able to engage with fans and critics alike. I won’t lie and say it didn’t help me love you even more.
Anyway, I have a couple of questions.
1. The Tully vote. Reading between the lines, you hinted that Tully was not actually your target. I assume that meant Johnson actually was? Can you tell us more about what went on behind the scenes and why you couldn’t land your target (if I am reading between the lines correctly)?
2. Can you talk us through how you came to the finale decisions? You held so much power. With great power comes some pretty heavy and huge decisions. Why did you choose to bring Reggie and Johnson through to the finale and why not Brenton?
3. Where did your SPARKLY suit come from for the finale? You looked amazing!
I do hope that you are able to take an emotional and mental break from the heaviness and depth of all the social media and just media in general about you over the last few months. So importantly….
4. R U OK?
I so hope you can walk away from this experience with your head held high and know that there are people who saw through the villain edit and see an interesting, strong, socially aware, emotional, diverse person who is a little bit of a cheeky munchkin also.
