Big Brother’s Talia Says The Housemates Were Told Not To Have Sex

Another big personality on Big Brother was evicted last night, after Talia left in a landslide elimination.

Talia was a challenge beast and a divisive character in the house, who quickly positioned herself as the alpha female — with ex-footballer Daniel by her side. With Talia and Angela both leaders of two different factions forming in the house, it was not surprising that when given the chance Talia was nominated by Angela.

Talia did not take the news well, and in the eviction room tensions were at an all-time high. Talia even straight-up refused to hug Angela before she left the house. It was savage and we simply had to find out all the goss.

We spoke to Big Brother’s latest evictee Talia to get all the tea from house.


On why she refused to hug Angela after being eliminated:

“Purely for the fact that she had lied to me, she said she’d never put me up for eviction. Then she won that challenge and it was ‘Goodbye Talia’. It was good gameplay, but it wasn’t very nice. In my mind, I thought, ‘I don’t want to hug you because you’ve wanted me out for such a long time, I don’t want a fake friendship with you.’

“We were really close in the house. Like ten minutes before the challenge, she said to me ‘You don’t have to worry about me. I’d never put you up.’ Because I was winning heaps of challenges, I feel like she was just saving herself in that moment.

“She was friends with us, and then she betrayed us and went to Marissa’s side. Marissa was really pissed off that Sarah and I put her up for eviction and got really nasty about it. She wanted to side with Marissa and get rid of us, and that’s a mistake as it will put her [Angela] in the firing line.”

On not being surprised to be evicted:

“I knew that I was going. From the moment Angela said my name, I knew I was 100% going. I was very dominant in challenges and won a lot, so I was more of a threat than anyone else up for eviction. It was the smart thing to do.”

On herself and Dan receiving villain edits:

“I was nice like 98% of the time and they just showed my bad edit. People say to me that you can’t take back what you say, but what was said on TV everyone was saying, it wasn’t just me. Big Brother knows what they want to portray.

“The thing with Dan is that if he’s in [the show] for the long run, it [his edit] will affect him and his game. If he’s in the final three, it could affect him. The Dan I knew was the most loving and caring guy ever, and they’re making him look like he’s bad.”

On her relationship with Dan:

“At the start of the show, I had no clue who this guy was. I just thought he was a cool, good looking, lovely guy. Then as the days went on, I realised that Dan is someone who I want to hold in my heart forever, and our friendship is amazing, and I wouldn’t want to ruin it.

“He used to talk to me about his girl problems all the time, he talked to me about the girl he likes on the outside, and I’d talk to him about boy problems. We’re just a couple of best friends.”

On rules on housemates sleeping together:

“You can sleep with whoever you want. I’m pretty sure I slept with Casey one night, you can definitely sleep with whoever, but I think people just chose [not to], you know they’re on national TV, they don’t want to be seen doing that.

“There wasn’t any rules [from production] about getting intimate with each other, you’re allowed to do that but they just advised you to not have sex on TV. They said you can kiss and cuddle but they said that cameras are watching and they can get in any area they want to get, so they just advised that we not do that.”

On the new Big Brother format:

“If it wasn’t an edited TV show and it was a live TV show, then Australia would have chosen differently, trust me. Not with just me, but with Laura, Allan, and SooBong. People get scared of the bigger personalities because we are threats.”

Big Brother returns tonight at 7:30pm on Channel Seven.
