Big Brother – Sam
We’re getting down to the final few on Big Brother!
Loudmouths, backstabbing, and twists…oh my! I mean let’s be real, it wouldn’t be BB without it right? Every week someone gets shown the door, they’ll be hanging out on Beach Mornings to fill us in on what went right, what went horribly wrong, and more!
Sam is one of a kind isn’t she? That’s why we love her! She was one of the most refreshingly unique cast members on the 20th season of Big Brother and she did what she wanted in that house without a care in the world. From bold statements, to big moves when it involved her HOH reign, she will not soon be forgotten as many who play this game easily are. We caught up pre-jury to pick the brain of the one and only Sam and it went a little something like this:

Welcome to the show Sam! You were such a pleasure to watch this season, even though the odds were stacked against you for much of your time in the house. How did you stay calm while trying to navigate the game and move ahead week by week?
I would take three hour long cold showers and took it one day at a time and if I could not do one day at a time, I did it one hour at a time. I allowed myself to experience a full range of emotions. I did not hold back a damn thing.
You were like the house mom, lending an ear when needed, and always cleaning up when most others didn’t lift a finger to help. Is who we saw inside the BB house the same girl outside?
Yes, sir! I have always chosen to lead by example and I am a very nurturing and caring person. My service to others is one of my strengths. I hope that I was an inspiration to all the women out there who do the same jobs and get the same amount of credit. The only difference is I was on TV.
When you look back on this experience, as on most seasons, houseguests must have to bite their tongues on occasion especially during some of the big blowups in the house. Who do you wish you could have pulled aside and spoken with to help calm them down when they were going wild, and who do you wish took time to talk with you honestly in an effort to align with you?
I was the house therapist. I provided a sounding board. A safe place to share and to voice some of those angry thoughts and frustrations. That was part of my comfort. If I was helping other people with their problems I could take a break from trying to fix my own.
What was it like being an actual robot early on in the season? That was one of the weirdest twists I’ve ever seen in all the years this show has been on the air.
I thoroughly enjoyed becoming a faceless figure free to speak candidly without the consequences of backlash.
What we see on TV is only a fraction of what goes on in the house since you guys are pretty much ON for most of the day. What was the hardest part of the game for you and what did you do in the house to avoid going stir crazy?
The hardest part in the game for me was no music. So I would just sing in my head and make stuff to occupy my time.
Out of all the laughs this season what one moment did you enjoy the most and why?
I think I laughed the hardest when JC dropped his drawers in his quote un quote blind spot. There are no blind spots in the Big Brother house.
You made one of the biggest moves in YEARS laying down the law about people not being allowed to hang in your HOH room. It was epic! Also when you put up Haleigh and Kaitlyn you made sure they knew you weren’t cool with the way they played using their flirting style to get ahead. Do you hold true to that statement or do you wanna clear the air?
Hell yes. I say what I mean and I mean what I say.
What do you hope people remember about Sam on Big Brother’s 20th season?
I was true to my word. I was true to myself. Beep boop beep.
