The Yak’s Interview with BB13 Evictee Jeff Schroeder!
By Kasey Olmstead – August 26, 2011
The Yak had the pleasure to interview the latest victim of elimination, Jeff, following a grueling double eviction night in the Big Brother House! Keep reading to see what he had to say to our members questions, before being driven off to the jury house!
The Yak: We have a lot of fans of yours over here at YakkityYaks! We fans can see what a pressure cooker the Big Brother House truly is, but we never had the chance to experience it of course. Can you tell us, first hand, how it feels to be trapped in the house with mostly strangers, and how stressful it really is?
Jeff: The “strangers” part you get over quickly. I like meeting new people – that wasn’t stressful. The daily grind is stressful…very stressful. The fun part is meeting everyone…the stressful part is living with them.
The Yak: Had you met Dick, Daniele, Rachel and Brendon outside the house previous to this meeting, and did you like them?
Jeff: I spoke with Dick several times before coming back on the show. I liked him…you know what you are getting with him. I never met Brendon and Rachel or spoke with them and I had met Daniele one time before briefly at a party.
The Yak, from Forum Member TheKdd: It was very ironic that both you and Daniele agreed that there were many players in the game that never stood up and did something for themselves, rather you both had to get your hands dirty. Many of us were hoping you two would have teamed up. Looking back, do you think there was anything you could have done more of that would have put you two on the same side of the house?
Jeff: I would have loved to team up with Daniele. I think we think alike, but after she tried to backdoor me for no reason, I could never trust her again. It would have been stupid on my part to take that chance.
The Yak, from Forum Member KaysarRocks and CR: You and Kalia were discussing the Harry Potter book, and the fact that, originally, he was written to be a gay character, and your reaction to that. Can you clarify for the fans what you meant as it didn’t seem you were able to really express what your views on that was.
Jeff: My hesitation was not regarding the fact that he was gay…my point was that you cannot send your 8 year old kid off to a magical fantasy land…regardless of whoever is in charge. I would not send my kid off to a fictional, magical land. It came off wrong and I apologize for that, but again, that was not my intention.
The Yak, from Forum Member Hapyhouswf: Unfortunately, you got got again. Anything you wish you had done differently?
Jeff: Yes – lots of things. I wish I wasn’t painted as a target. I wasn’t comfortable with that role and it ultimately led to my demise
The Yak, from Forum Member SassyGal: What was the best thing about returning to the Big Brother House? Other than eviction, what was the worst thing about returning?
Jeff: Best thing – 2nd opportunity at a once in a lifetime experience.
Worst Part – how stressful it is and how your mind plays tricks on you. You feel yourself changing while you’re in the game. A lot harder this time around.
The Yak, from Forum Member Kristin: Will you remain friends with Shelly outside the house? Will you pursue working with her?
Jeff: I thought I would be and I want to say that it’s all just a game, but for Shelly to do something like that to me really hurts — past the game level. Right now, it stings, but we’ll see how I feel at the finale.
The Yak: If you had stayed and won HoH last night, who would you have put up and why?
Jeff: Kalia and Porsche – because I wanted to get floaters out of the house. Shelly might have been in the mix because of what went down, but likely Kalia and Porshce.
The Yak: Who at this moment would you like to see join you next in the jury house?
The Yak: If you have the chance in the future, would you do it all again?
Jeff: You have to give me at least 6 months before I can even talk about BB.
The Yak: If you could start this season over again, what would you do differently?
Jeff: Wish I wouldn’t have been a target.
The Yak: Thank you Jeff! You are most loved over at YakkityYaks! Our fans are hoping to see you soon!
