‘Big Brother 18’ finale: Nicole Franzel – CBS backyard interview highlights

Nicole -Tonight, “Big Brother” ended with what you could certainly call one of the most polarizing decisions in the history of the show. Nicole Franzel won, and while you can certainly argue that she made some good moves, at the same exact time there’s a sentiment among some that Paul played better. Personally, we would’ve voted Paul, but we recognize that she did make moves and had some friends on the jury.

Following the big win, Nicole spoke with Jeff Schroeder in the CBS backyard, and we’ve got an assortment of quotes for you below.

On her reaction to the win – “I thought I’d have some votes. I didn’t know if it was going to be an emotional vote from the jury, or the strategic vote. I didn’t know how they were voting.”

On her strategy – “I had to play super-hard this season … I fell asleep thinking about it, I woke up thinking about it.”

On her turning point in the game – “I don’t know yet. I just can’t believe that me and Corey got me out of the situation with Natalie and Michelle.”

On her future with her and Corey – “I don’t know.”

Yeah, that was really about it. Nicole was the last person Jeff interviewed on the night, and they were running out of time. We’ll talk about this more in the coming days, but for now we will say that Nicole did some very good moves at times this season. Personally, we would have voted for Paul just because we admired his fight and his hustle, but we also have the benefit of live feeds and seeing things from the outside.
