Wooooooo! The new season of Big Brother in underway and for Season 20 they’re pulling out all the stops! The houseguests come from all corners of life, the house itself looks amazing, and the twists thus far have been incredible! Each and every week a houseguest is shown the door, we’ll pick their brain to find out what went down. First up, former under cover cop, Steve Arienta!
20 seasons deep. Incredible isn’t it? How long have you been a fan of this show?
Man I’ve been a fan of this show since Season 2 with Mike Boogie and Dr. Will. I go way back. It’s such a rush bring in this game playing it instead of sitting at home and watching it, analyzing it, thinking what would it be like to walk in and give it a shot. Getting that key was everything. It’s an incredible show and I’m honoured to have been a part of this season.
Your personality was one a lot of viewers were looking forward to watching as the season progressed but your time got cut short. We’ll get to that in a sec. Every season there’s a wide cross section of people in that house. You guys are pretty much stuck with each other til you either win or are shown the door. How did you deal with all the loudmouths in there?
Haha bro I just watched and observed and stayed out of trouble in there and let everyone else try and blow up each other games. It gets pretty real in there.
Every year, a few players usually stand out above the rest and most times it’s because they’re super loud and obnoxious. Swaggy C seems to be that dude this season. How did you hear yourself think with him around?
Haha Swaggy’s a great guy, lemme tell you, we got along fine, he’s a good kid and quite the character. We had a lot of characters in there, you just have to navigate your way to conversations that matter and plug away for a few more days and a few more days.
You left the house on a 7-6 vote. It was so close! Why do you think things went they way they did?
You know in this game, the chips fall where they may and I guess there was some flipping that went on and it didn’t work in my favour, it worked against me. There are definitely gonna be people wondering what the hell happened for sure.
Being an elder statesman in the house, did it blow your mind the showman’s amongst the youngins were brewing almost immediately?
Bro! These kids in the house, God love ‘em, they should know better if they’ve watched this game but you know what you’re in their 24/7 with people you think you can trust and you favour being around certain people more than others, things can happen. Not the smartest move that’s for sure.
Any word of advice for everyone else in the house working towards the win?
Trust no one haha! Listen more than you speak and work the angles. It’s the only way to play this game and even then nothing is guaranteed.
