BFFs for life! Big Brother’s Bridgette Dunning never saw her costar Frank Eudy in a romantic way — or so she says. The traveling nurse opens up exclusively with Us Weekly about her connection with the show vet following her eviction on Thursday, August 11.
“My relationship with Frank is an unexpectedly awesome, genuine friendship,” Dunning, 24, tells Us. “Who the heck knows,” she adds, on whether they could have had a showmance. “We’re not single, I never thought of it like that.”
Eudy, 32, was previously voted out during the July 28 episode. If still in the house, the two had plans to go after three big competitors. “We had a game plan where we would get Da’Vonne [Rogers] out, then Nicole [Franzel], then Paulie [Calafiore],” she says. “I guess I was hoping we could win comps and intimidate the house until the very end.”
For more with Dunning, read the rest of her Q&A below:
US WEEKLY: What was going on through your mind when Corey nominated you in the double eviction?
BRIDGETTE DUNNING: No shock there. I knew if he won I was definitely going to be on the block.
US: Were you surprised by the vote 5-1?
BD: I was a little surprised…
US: Who would you have nominated in the double eviction night?
BD: The plan was to nominate Nicole and Corey [Brooks]. Probably Corey would win the veto, use it on himself, nominate Paulie and get his butt out the door.
US: What’s your perspective on the Paulie and Natalie Negrotti drama?
BD: I feel that the Paulie and Natalie drama could have been completely avoided if Paulie’s ego and pride didn’t get the best of him. He could have avoided the whole situation with an apology. It absolutely went too far. It was heartbreaking to be the only person to come to Natalie’s defense, and I was severely disappointed by everyone else who was too afraid to voice their opinions and defend an innocent, honest and genuine human being.
US: Do you think Paulie and Paul’s bromance is done?
BD: Bromance with Paul is 100 percent over. I hope that Paul is able to remain close enough to him to know what Paulie is up to and has the balls to take the shot at Paulie the first chance he gets.
The next Big Brother airs on CBS Friday, August 19, at 8 p.m. ET.
