At bb9dish, we cover the Big Brother Live Feeds, so much of what we write could be considered a spoiler for those who only watch the broadcast on CBS. Now, we don't understand why anyone would choose to do that, since it's like forming an opinion based on 1/10,000th of the information, and they could at least try the feeds for free, but what do we know?!

Interview with BB9's Amanda Hansen

As you can tell from the title of this post, Amanda Hansen is our first evicted houseguest interview of the Big Brother 9 season. Amanda was a pleasure to talk to, and I hope you enjoy the read. :)

As always, please do not take the liberty of copying and pasting this interview elsewhere. You are quite welcome to link to it. Here's the direct url:


Carolyn: Thanks so much for taking the time to talk with me. I really enjoyed you on Big Brother 9, and I was very bummed when you and Alex got the boot. Way too soon, in my opinion.
Amanda: BUENO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Okay! I agree, I am home way toooooo soon, but now it is time to make it happen.

Carolyn: How does it feel to have your life back, after a couple weeks of BB Sequester/Purgatory?
Amanda: It feels crazy to be home. Sequester, aka, lol purgatory was okay. I loved tanning, LOL.... Now you can totally tell I'm Italian..

Carolyn: Are you back home in Minnesota already? If so, have you spoken with the other Minnesota BB alums: Janelle and Nick?
Amanda: I am in Minnesota, and Nick reached out to me. Carol has also reached out to me...I hope to get in touch with Janelle....

Carolyn: I was surprised when you said "Alex and I do not get along" on the live show last week...
Amanda: I will never utter a bad word about Alex, but he and I did butt heads. We are so much alike that we should be brother and sister.

Carolyn: What was it like being in sequester together?

Amanda: It was hard being in sequester for 2 weeks, but as you can tell, we made it through...

Carolyn: Along that same vein, during your stay on BB, you went from liking Alex to liking Parker and then it seemed back to Alex again... How much do you feel the couples twist messed with your mind and your game?
Amanda: I think the couples twist messed me up big time. I could have flirted with the boys, and cooked with the girls. The "hook ups" were not a good idea, but it brought something totally different to BB. I just wish it was singles from the start... I had to like my partner because he was my partner, but flirt with everyone else, and my partner didn't like that.

Carolyn: Were you able to reconnect with Parker at all after you were released?
Amanda: Parker and I will always be friends...

Carolyn: How about the rest of the HGs?
Amanda: I have talked to every single evicted house guest. I talk to Parker and Jen the most, then Allison, then Jacob, and I have only spoken to Alex one time.

Carolyn: Getting back to your time in the BB house... If you could go back in time and do some things differently, what would they be?
Amanda: I would not have flirted with other guys. It upset my partner, we started to fight, and others in the house started to hate me for it.

Carolyn: Anything else?
Amanda: I would have never told people what others said about them. It all came back to bite Amanda in her big fat rear! LOL

Carolyn: Incidentally, for what it's worth, Matt told a few more people about him and Nat under the covers (to be delicate) the other night, and it spread pretty quickly throughout the house, so your name has been cleared (in terms of spreading false rumors) in that respect... FYI, Not that it matters, but they've recently continued those activities.
Amanda: I noticed. I guess they should do whatever makes them happy, but as you see from tonights episode, Matt is gone, and Nat will not be feeding his needs. LOL

Carolyn: Do you hold a grudge against anyone in the house? Josh for the horrible things he said? Chelsia for same? Anyone else?
Amanda: I am upset for what they said, but forgive and forget... I always remember that its better to be hated for who you are then loved for who you are not. So, I will always live by that motto.

Carolyn: Can you clear the air for us about the situation with Alex & the inappropriate behavior in the bedroom?
Amanda: Sorry- I wish I could address this more, but I don't want to speak badly about Alex... He knows what he tried to do...

Carolyn: The night of the strip show and pool free for all, you abstained from the pool part of the evening, opting to stay inside with Allison and Sheila. How come?
Amanda: Outside of BB I have a career, friends, family, and most importantly, integrity. I did not participate because I respect myself. Why would I just bounce from person to person????? Plus, yuck, I don't know where people have put their mouths, and I don't want any STD's, nasty!

Carolyn: How is your health? You gave us all quite a scare that night when you collapsed! (Most of us anyhow... some were sure you were faking... Chelsia even said as much as soon as you dropped - that "guaranteed, she's faking." Most of the BB loving world turned on Chelsia completely that night... they'd already started with the noose comments, but that was the final straw... for about a week.)
Amanda: Good- She should have never said that.... I am so much better. I have to keep checking my blood sugar daily, but I eat good, so I don't ever worry. SLOP IS NASTY!

Carolyn: You have quite a lot of fans.
Amanda: That is awesome to hear that I have a lot of fans.... That makes my day!

Carolyn: How can they stay in touch with you?
Amanda: I will be setting up a myspace shortly. I have a fan forum, (Amanda Hansen Fan Forum) and everyone can keep in touch via that site...

Carolyn: Any chats coming up soon?
Amanda: I am doing a chat this evening! Spread the word, doll.
Carolyn: Spreading ;) Here's the link: Amanda Chat Info.

Carolyn: Of the remaining 8 houseguests, who would you most like to see as the ultimate winner?
Amanda: I hope Adam wins... He is a really nice guy, kind of crazy, but really really nice... I would love to see him win... I would not mind if Nat won either.

Carolyn: Given the chance, knowing what you know, would you do it all again?
Amanda: I would do it all over again and play the game so much differently.

Did Amanda tell you what city they were held in sequester? It looked like Palm Springs, CA.

Amanda didn't get a fair edit on the show, tbh. She may have been too involved in dramatics, but isn't that why we watch anyway?

I agree Amanda got an unfair edit, but really it was a lot of other peoples dishonesty and not owning up to what they said!But alas it is a game and she got evicted! I would rather had Amanda win than Natalie or Sheila!!! And of course... BUENO!

Thanks for the interview!

When are going to get Alex?

I may have had a dream about the man, but it's nothing like that... he's a cutie, but I think he got a rotten deal (twice) and would love to read what he has to say.

Thanks again!

Loved Amanda!! Wish she was able to make it back on the show!! She cracked me up with all her gossip.. sad to say but I know I would have fell victim to that as well!! Haha

She is sweet. I voted for her, Alex and Parker to come back and none did.;-)


Alex is out of the country for some vacay... in Aruba for now. Check his MySpace. I am sure Carolyn will 'hunt' him down when back.

I really don't believe that Alex did anything to her. I think I read somewhere that there was video footage of the event in question, and that his hand was in the vicinity, but he didn't go too far. I can't remember where I saw that, to be fair. As much as I like Amanda, I feel like she might have embellished things to make a story out of it. Alex is a good guy, and I know for fact that not many of the people in the house really believed her story. I can understand why she's only talked to Alex "once" since sequester, and why they didn't get along while they were there. She cast doubt on his character in there, and I know I myself wouldn't forgive that easily.

Yes I am well aware of where Alex is and I was only kidding :D

Hey Carolyn,

Great interview!! I do LFU over at BBQ and seen the interview posted in a thread there....in it's entirety. Right along with your request not to post the interview but rather the link!! The link is there also but I thought that w/ the interview posted there is really no need to come to your wonderful site to look at it. I just wanted to give you a heads up!!

I'm not even sure if it matters to you...I just wanted your site to reap full benefits!!! It is just a poster over there and not any of the mods.
