'Big Brother': Da'Vonne reveals her round trip ticket plan
The good news for Da’Vonne Rogers is that she finally got her nemesis Frank out of the Big Brother house. The bad news for the 27-year-old poker dealer is that she was the next to go, voted out by her housemates on Thursday’s live episode. We caught up with Da’Vonne on her way to the jury house with a few Big Brother burning questions, like what she would have done had she reentered the house with the coveted round trip ticket. (Also check out our weekly Q&A with host Julie Chen.)
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You were assured you were a pawn but then sent out the door. How surprised were you when you were voted out?
Da’VONNE ROGERS: I wasn’t surprised. At all. I knew all week that I was going home. In the house, you can sense when it is your time.
You were able to keep your emotions in check for the most part this season yet still became a target of the house. Were you too aggressive?
Possibly. I don’t feel I was called back to play a low-key game. I love this game too much to just not play hard.
Why after being voted out did you tell Victor that they were planning to get him out in a double eviction?
Because I didn’t want to just leave. I had to drop a bomb before I left. Just a final farewell from Da’Vonne. That was in my mind all week: If you all are going to send me home, I’m snitching before I leave. Also, because I know other than myself, Victor is the only person that will take a swing at Paulie.
I’m sure you had some time to think about what you would have done had you gotten the round trip ticket. What was your plan in terms of whom you wanted to play with and what you wanted to do had you reentered the house?
If I reentered the house, the goal was to win HOH and put Paulie and Nicole on the block next to each other. I wanted to team up with Victor and try as hard as I could to get him on my side. I feel like everyone in there had a partner except me. Granted, we never ever would have had a showmance, but we could have been partners.
If you could send one person out of that house right now, whom would it be?
That is a good question. Maybe Paulie, because I don’t think anyone is going to make the effort to try and get him out. He is someone, with his social game and how competitive he is, he can take this thing to the end. That would suck because it is almost like people in the house are handing him the win.
Does making it to the jury offer any sort of satisfaction considering your early exit last time?
Yes, I have to tell myself that granted I didn’t win, I wasn’t the first person evicted, and I wasn’t the first vet evicted, and I made it farther than last year. Even though I didn’t win, I still did better than I did before and that feels good.
I think we know the answer to this but whom are you rooting for to win at this point?
This is probably going to shock a lot of people, but I would like to see Paul, Zakiyah, and James go far.
