Natalie lied about her age, her engagement and countless other things in the Big Brother house and all it got her was $50,000. But she also earned something even more valuable: hatred. Based on what I’ve seen from the fan reactions, Natalie is easily the single most hated Big Brother HG of all-time, which isn’t easy since she has some major competition.
In our interview, Natalie talked about being the most hated HG in Big Brother history, how she predicted and saw almost everything that went down in the house, why she wasn’t surprised by Jessie’s vote for Jordan, and why Michele is NOT invited to her wedding.
Listen to the full interview to hear Natalie’s defense of herself and her actions in the game, then judge whether you still hate her. Here are some of the highlights:
-Natalie wasn’t surprised at all by Jessie voting for Jordan because she knew she had burned that bridge. In fact, she correctly predicted the way all the votes would go down.
-She also says, despite what Jessie may have told his fellow jurors, that she did have influence in who went home in the beginning.
-Natalie was a student of Big Brother and came in to play a game, immediately changing who she was as soon as she entered the house. She also says she saw how everything was unfolding, including the fact that Jeff was running the house as far back as when Ronnie was evicted in week 4.
-Despite playing a game, Natalie still let personal grudges play a part, and she says that wasn’t an act. She genuinely dislikes Michele as a person, announcing that Michele is definitely not invited to the wedding. She also says that, if Kevin had won the final HoH and evicted her, Natalie would’ve voted for Jordan to win purely out of spite.
-Natalie also says that, while she had gone ring shopping with her boyfriend before, the engagement was still a surprise and that it was definitely the best moment she had in the house.
-She also strongly defends Chima as someone who simply made a mistake, and Natalie, unlike all the other HGs based on last night, still considers Chima one of her closest friends from the game.
-Interestingly enough, after Jeff left, Natalie also became good friends with Jordan and seems to genuinely like her as a person.
Basically, here’s my verdict after talking to Natalie: she may have lied a lot during the game, but what we saw from her during her diary room confessionals was 100 percent the real Natalie, so love her or hate her, but there’s no denying exactly what and who Natalie is.
