BBCAN3 - Graig Merritt Exit Interview

April 9, 2015

You told both Arisa and some of your fellow houseguests that you are unsure if you want to return to the house. Why is that and has your mindset changed at all in the very short time since your eviction?

Graig: Yeah, my mind has definitely changed in that short time. I was overwhelmed. Even though I knew I was being evicted, I just got caught up in the emotion of it all. When you know you are being evicted, you kind of shut your game off. You want to go home, back to real life. I’m a bit homesick. I miss my family, I miss my dogs. I did get a tad claustrophobic in the house, knowing that you can’t just open the front door and go out. With that all being said, I cannot wait to try to get back into that house and create some drama for all of the Big Brother fans.

If you returned to the house, who would you align with, who would you like to target and why?

Graig: Great question. I would have to go in the house and feel the energy of the house first and foremost. I have ran this exact question through my head a million times. Would I go back with the original Chop Shop? Would I go after Zach and try and get Zach out of the house cause he is playing a very strong game and running the house at the moment. I don’t really know the answer to that question right now. I hope I can get in the house and discover that answer but, yeah, I’d have to go in and see what’s going on and get a read on a few people before I made that decision.

You told Willow yesterday morning that you were considering blowing up some games but ultimately decided against it. What exactly were you considering doing and why did you decide not to do it?

Graig: I was considering blowing up the Chop Shop. They weren’t really fighting for me. I understand that was hard for them because there was two Chop Shop members on the block, so they were ultimately fighting for one person on the Chop Shop. I decided not to do it because of this exact scenario. Not being a Big Brother superfan but having some knowledge of the show, I knew that they do bring people back. It was in the back of my mind, and if I would have blown up the house and then got myself back in it wouldn’t have been very good for my game. I wanted to go out with some professionalism and class, so I decided not do it. After Arisa told me there is a chance to go back in the house, I’m sure glad I didn’t.
