Brent Highly Respects Hannah, Says He and Hannah Are ‘Close’
In Heavy’s exit interview with Brent, we needed to ask about his relationship with Hannah as a result of they’d a considerably tumultuous relationship in the home. Here is what he needed to say about her and the opposite ladies in the home:
Heavy: How do you suppose your relationship was with the ladies in the home?
Brent: We have been all very shut. We butted heads a number of instances. We clearly had totally different views on sure issues, however that is human nature … we have been all very flirty. I stayed away from quite a lot of the opposite gents with all of the cuddling and all that, simply thought it wasn’t actually one thing I wished to actually do as a result of I already had a goal on my again. Showmances have been type of out the image while you’re on protection mode the entire time. But I’m a really flirtatious particular person, female and male, I prefer to have enjoyable and joke round.
But so far as the narratives I needed to painting that Frenchie left so far as me to make use of as ammunition an all-girl alliance and such … It was a story to attempt to get Derek X off of Christian — Christian was within the Slaughterhouse and to get Hannah off the scent of possibly we have been working with different folks and the one folks outdoors the Slaughterhouse have been 5 females and Derek X, so it made sense.
And sadly, Britini’s title obtained dragged by means of the mud due to Frenchie saying she was the pinnacle of an all-girl alliance and Claire as properly. It was reiterated down the road from individual to individual. I did clarify to Britini at one level when she requested why we have been each up on the block and I mentioned it did in all probability stem from Frenchie and the reiteration on my finish of her being the lead of an all-girl alliance. … But it was roughly one thing to make use of in addition to far as two gents went residence the primary two weeks and now the third gents went residence. It does come all the way down to numbers generally. Christian and X, I do not know if they do not understand that however the ladies will all flip in opposition to you and take you guys all out. And Hannah’s a mastermind. She’s lovely inside and outside, she’s sensible, I’ve nothing however variety phrases to say about her and he or she’s taking part in an ideal lowkey, silent recreation and I respect her extremely as a result of I obtained a bit of bit extra of the feist on the finish as a result of I used to be difficult quite a lot of the issues that she was making an attempt to guard, so it is sensible.”
Heavy: Hannah’s goodbye message was notably savage. How would you describe your relationship along with her?
Brent: We’re shut. Like I mentioned, we do not see eye to eye on every part. Obviously, now we have totally different views, however we did have quite a lot of mental and in-depth conversations that I loved and I do know she loved or she would not have entertained them. As far as her goodbye message, now we have had a public dialog in entrance of the opposite houseguests when she has introduced the phrase up ‘smug’ earlier than. It was subtle by different folks saying it was confidence, probably not vanity as a result of vanity is extra on the road of shoving folks’s noses in issues and belittling folks and making them really feel like they’re much less or actually being extra on the facetious finish of me being extra assured and guaranteed that I do know who I’m and I do know my strengths and weaknesses, however I can see the place you’ll be able to confuse it for cockiness … I do know there is a distinction between when the digital camera is on and it is go time and also you’re within the Diary Room and you must give a show to America. I feel there’s an enormous distinction between the 2. It’s not necessary for the general public to see that, however for me to realize it. I do know the reality and I do know the bonds that have been created in the home. … we’re all gonna get into a gaggle chat, we’re all gonna keep buddies, we’re all gonna giggle about nonsense once more, so no onerous emotions.
Brent Blames Frenchie For Not Being Able to Play His Own Game
Heavy: Would you do something otherwise in case you may return and begin over?
Brent: I went in with a goal on my again due to the way in which I appeared and Frenchie made that very recognized. I feel if that wasn’t the case and there was no Frenchie, I might have undoubtedly went in with my authentic technique, which was staying a bit extra lowkey, little bit extra within the shadows, being extra observant, utilizing the allure, and all that later. But the allure was what ended up getting me off the block within the first place. It was simply the hand I used to be dealt. I can not complain about it, it is a part of the sport, it is a part of life and I performed it to the perfect of my capacity till I had no extra choices. So yeah, if I may do it another time with out Frenchie being on me so fast, I might undoubtedly be the extra reserved, passive route. … It’s onerous to fathom that I may have performed something otherwise to start with as a result of both manner if I did do one thing totally different, I would not have made it to week three.
If I challenged Frenchie, if I went in opposition to him or I mentioned no to the ultimate two or the alliance, the Slaughterhouse, although I disagreed with it within the first place, I might’ve been put up and Travis would’ve stayed. So it was roughly simply adapting and doing what I needed to do week by week. But that paint that was placed on me, that crimson paint dried and that concentrate on remained and I feel it was going to stay to subsequent week if I made it. So that Veto, although I might’ve beloved to win it … I might’ve simply went residence the subsequent week. I might’ve simply been prolonging the inevitable. I actually wished for the sake of my crew and myself, to grasp who was really behind us and who was not.
But yeah, so far as gameplay, my fingers have been tied. There’s not a lot I may say I may’ve did otherwise since you by no means know what’s gonna occur, who you are gonna be with.
Who Does Brent Think Are within the Best and Worst Positions In the House?
Heavy: Who do you suppose is in the perfect place in the home proper now?
Brent: Hannah as a result of legit you’ll by no means count on it. She simply seems within the mirror and dances all day. She’ll stroll by a mirror and do little TikTok dances and it is simply sensible. She’s doing her personal factor, she’s staying lowkey, however she’s very analytical and he or she thinks strategically and he or she runs issues [through in her head] earlier than she does them. She’s not impulsive.
But on the alternative finish, I feel Christian deserves to win as a result of he is profitable every part and he is taking part in so naive and he is making octopus hotdogs and doing all this stuff that will make him appear so harmless and never a menace, however but he is gained a contest each week … and nonetheless everybody determined to eliminate me, one of many solely folks that X believes could be the largest menace to them? They nonetheless removed me? I imply, I might’ve performed the identical actual factor if I used to be of their footwear was to eliminate me. It was the fitting play, that is why I’m not upset about it or shocked. But I’m shocked that nobody can see that Christian is completely crushing it and I used to be extra of a menace than he was after I have not had an oz of energy.
So Hannah is unquestionably gonna win it, Christian deserves to win it.
Heavy: Who do you suppose is within the worst place?
Brent: That’s query. I feel Kyland and possibly Derek X simply because I do not actually know what is going on on behind the scenes with each of their alliances that they are part of that I’m not part of. … They already removed three gents. If they actually have been frightened concerning the numbers being skewed, it is type of too far gone at this level … Kyland has a powerful bond with quite a lot of younger women in the home. They belief him, they’re receptive to him, he is very candy, he is very nurturing, he is very caring, He’s simply total an ideal particular person. And then Derek X is his right-hand man, they’re type of good. So I would not be shocked if it is Kyland and Derek X [on the block].
Heavy: I feel Whitney and Britini are possibly in hassle this week.
Brent: I might be blissful if Whitney went residence. Me and Whitney by no means obtained alongside. She was very pretend to me and I may inform from the very first dialog I had along with her that she would be capable of dish however not take and I’m an enormous persona, in order quickly as I might bust her up a bit of bit, growth. She would flip crimson, full shutdown mode … it was irritating as a result of she took every part to coronary heart and it makes it onerous to construct one thing when you aren’t getting together with somebody in your crew.
And I do not consider she’s taking part in any sort of recreation. I actually do consider that everyone else is taking part in the sport and he or she’s type of simply chilling as a result of quite a lot of the time she’ll say, ‘Oh, you understand, I’m not speaking recreation as we speak.’ … in case you do not feel like speaking recreation as we speak, c’mon, you simply wanna coast by and let everybody else do all of the work. It’s little issues like that … she was extra preoccupied with the social interplay and hanging out and cuddling than the precise recreation, so I’d be blissful if she goes residence.
