Look who got backdoored! EW.com talked to Big Brother's Michelle Costa, the 28-year-old real estate agent from Rhode Island, about Dan's devilish deal with Ollie, the red leotard, and what she hopes to say to Libra once she goes to the jury house.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Before I begin, I have to ask: Your bio says you were the only one to object at your brother's wedding. Did it work? Did you stop the ceremony?
Michelle Costa: No, it didn't work. They said I was the crazy sister who was upset at losing her brother, so they actually took me out of the church. Let's put it this way: I didn't like the girl, but they separated three years from the day they got married, so I was right on the money.
You don't know who was evicted after you last night, right?
No! I can't wait to see their face! I'm hoping it's either Dan or one of the two girls so I can say, "I told you so!" They whisked me away, so I didn't get to see anything.
You seemed really worked up while talking with Julie Chen. Did you sleep okay last night?
I didn't get much sleep last night. I'm trying to put everything in perspective. I'm hoping it's a big dream, and I'll wake up and still be in the house. I just didn't like the way I was put out of the house because of someone else's deal. If they want to take me out, be man enough to say they wanted me out. They were honestly afraid of me. I wish they had the cojones to tell me that.
You thought that Dan was a plant in the house. So who planted him?
I thought he was a plant like America's Player... but not really. The entire house thought he was. They just thought he couldn't be that weird. He's a Catholic school teacher — at least, I think he is. I don't think he will be one when he's done with the show.
That deal he made with Ollie was too good to be true. Shouldn't your anger be directed toward Ollie for believing someone would basically hand all their HOH power to someone else?
When Ollie told me, I was like, "Shut up, you made this deal?" If this deal goes through, it will be the biggest ever in BB history or the biggest flop in BB history. I don't know if Dan planned it from the beginning. I'm confused with Dan because he did a lot of things from the beginning of the show that were questionable. I should have put in him up when I was HOH, but I had other agendas.
How did you feel when Jerry started to call Dan a Judas? Was that fair?
I absolutely thought it was fair. Anybody can say whatever they want in the house. He swore on the Bible and on the cross to Jerry. I'm Catholic, and I don't believe in doing something like that, to give your word and not go through with it.
Explain your connection to Jessie. Why did you find him so relatable?
Me and Jessie got into [an] alliance probably on day 2. He brought in Angie, and I brought in Memphis. We thought they were little shady, so we thought we had to be careful. We looked at each other and said it was just us two. We talked about a lot of personal stuff. It was strictly platonic. I tend to get along better with guys than girls, and the girls in the house definitely proved to me I'm right. Girls are just crazy, feisty, and jealous. I like to be brutally honest, and I don't think a lot of women can handle that.
You looked good in that red leotard.
Oh gosh, yeah. Well I guess maybe it was a little better than going to Hawaii. I'm still trying to decide that.
Boy, did that piss you off. In retrospect, do you regret hammering Libra about being a bad mother for not picking the letter? Or do you still think she made a bad decision?
I still think she made a bad decision. She should have taken the $10,000, the letter, or the POV, especially being the mother of three kids. They are learning to do stuff like crawling. She spent a whole week upset about wanting to see her kids. She could have taken the money and taken her whole family on a Hawaiian vacation, but I don't think she'll take her family or her husband to Hawaii. I think it's a bunch of crap, she's an absolute idiot, and I can't wait to tell her.
A 75-year-old retired Marine and a 53-year-old beauty salon owner have outlasted you. How does it feel?
Oh, she's a salon owner? I knew she was lying. She told us she was retired. I'm pissed off. It shows me they must be really scared of me. They had to backdoor me to get me out. I'm angry that they are keeping them around. It just kind of makes me wonder: Are they tough competitors?
If Dan is in the final two, will you vote for him?
Absolutely not. We don't [know] what's going to happen, but honestly, I think he threw the money out of the window with that whole Russian roulette thing. He threw everybody under the bus. I already knew he was a piece of work and should be watched. I definitely think he will be out this week, if not next.
Ollie and Michelle decided last night that they're going to work on creating doubt in Keesha and Renny's mind about Dan. They also plan on calling him out for being a plant when they're locked in the HOH together tomorrow. Michelle just put some garbage in Keesha's ear, and she's now asking Memphis what he thinks. They both agree, though, that Michelle and Ollie are just grasping at straws.
Just moments after Jerry claimed that they've been nothing but nice, Michelle has to open her big mouth. "How is he a football coach? He's a fucking liar. He ain't no fucking football coach. He's a fucking cheerleader. That's why he's always got to be there because he has to go cheerlead. Dan don't know how to suck a pussy. But he knows how to suck a dick. Some other guy probably has his pussy now." Ugh. They've spent their entire time playing pool talking about what terrible people Memphis and Dan are.
Oh yeah, and Michelle added that Memphis would probably like a little "Brokeback Mountain action".
and a big ole FU to Fay. My internet went out yesterday morning at 8:30 am, and all I could think of was nooooooooooooo today is POV! Still storming bad, with tornadoes and flash floods, but I'm back on and now caught up.
So thank you for the posts and vids, it kinda makes up for missing it all. :(
All I could think of when watching the vids, especially of Manchelle throwing her hissy fit about the cameras, was how the crew must be laughing their asses off. Talking back at her, mocking her. I would love to have been a fly on that wall.
Speaking of Manchelle, does she not remember a deal she made, where Jessie was to be the "protected" one? How could she have felt safe I don't know. And why these type of things are never brought up I don't know.
Oh well, I'm all caught up now and turning on the feeds. Again, TY!
Before Jerry walked in, though, Ollie said that the reason Dan made such a big deal during the HOH competition about seeing Monica was so they'd see the "phony" picture. Michelle is now pissed that she was put up instead of Ollie. "It just doesn't make sense." Yeah, right.
We had 20 minutes or so of fish after Ollie called Dan a "faggot", and we've returned to Renny visiting Dan in the HOH. Dan asked if he did the right thing today, and Renny said "yes". She does question if it had to be done in such a dramatic, controversial fashion, but they now all have to just move forward. She also asked him why they don't believe his pictures are real, and his only answer is that he appears slightly bigger in his football picture.
Dan also asked if Michelle has approached him for a vote, and Renny confirmed that she had. She says that she just told Michelle that she's too tired to talk right now, but she says that it was hard to look at the desperation in her eyes. The both agree that as the numbers dwindle, they'll have to start evicting people that they really care about. "I like Michelle but she is a fierce competitor, like April was."
With grieving time over, Michelle is now trying to work for a vote. She woke up a sleeping Memphis, and went on about how she's done nothing wrong and doesn't deserve this treatment. She thinks that Dan pressured Memphis not to use the veto, and she's even offered Memphis the same deal next week that Dan and Ollie made (yeah, that will work...and it was the plan that Ollie and her came up with a few minutes before). My favorite line of the one-sided conversation? "I didn't even know about all of the deal until the veto."
And please, BB, can we turn off the mics of those eating. Between Keesha chomping on candy, and Ollie's open-mouth chip munching, I'm annoyed beyond belief.
