‘Big Brother 18’ finale: Bridgette Dunning on Paul losing against Nicole (CBS backyard interview highlights)

Bridgette -Bridgette Dunning was a fan favorite for many on “Big Brother,” though ironically one of her better moments came during the jury house when she stood up against Paulie. She also brought some humor when it comes to the recap show courtesy of her love affair with basil plant Mr. Jenkins.

Still, we weren’t here to listen to Bridgette talk about Mr. Jenkins in her backyard interview! Check out some of what she said to Jeff Schroeder below about this season, the jury house, and more.

On the jury house – “It was really tense, honestly. It was so awkward … It was mostly be hiding away with Da’Vonne, and also Natalie and Michelle.”

On reconciliation with Paulie – “Gosh no! … The pieces on-camera were super-explosive. We would be fine, but when cameras were on he flipped a switch, and [we had to] be ready.”

On being in the backyard – “I really want to go on the scales! It looks like fun … They can’t stop us if we’re fast.”

On Nicole winning – “I do think that Paul honestly played a better game. Nicole said it herself, things just kind of went her way half of the game and she didn’t have to do much. I just think Paul played more … Honestly, I think it would have been 8-1 if Paul had taken James.”

On seeing Frank again – “It was amazing! I missed him so much.”

On her favorite moment – “Honestly, I just met so many great friends, Frank included … Friends for life.”

For the record, Bridgette’s not making amends with Paulie anytime soon…
