Big Brother's Frank Eudy on Why He Cheated

Did you have any idea your eviction was coming this week?
All week I felt as though this were déjá vu. It was Joe and I on the block against each other and I had to trust Dan and Danielle. But last time they were not honest with me and I couldn't help but think they were lying to me again.
Do you ever think of toning down your "mourning" of Mike once he was eliminated?
We were both just so alike and we got along so well – especially when you think of the random circumstances. Here are two people who have such trust between each other. When you know that someone has your back 100 percent, it means so much in the Big Brother house. I did not expect to come out of this game with someone I feel is a new best friend in my life.
Did you ever contemplate throwing a competition to be seen as less of a target?
I don't think it mattered. They were always after me more than him. So at that point Mike was out and I was just giving homage to my friend Boogie. I don't think keeping his spirit alive in the game hurt me at all.
What made Boogie such a good ally and friend in the house?
As I entered the house I absolutely was in the mindset that I didn't want to win competitions unless I had to. But, as it turned out this summer, I had to win as much as possible. One thing I wish I had done was send Dan and Danielle home week two and/or I would have kept Wil over Joe.
You were eliminated for cheating during an important power of veto competition. Did you know what you were doing when you whispered the answer to Britney?
I wanted her to get that one right so badly, that I almost vocalized it unintentionally. I knew that if she guessed it right and didn't take the punishment that I would win the veto.
What do you think of Ian?
Ian's definitely a peculiar kid and I appreciated his love for the show. But after what transpired, Ian has become a disappointment to me.
What are your criteria for voting for this season's winner?
Honesty and integrity. Overall, just somebody who deserves it. I am a big fan of the show so I don't want to see someone win in the end if they don't deserve it.
