LAST NIGHT MARKED THE END OF A ROMANCE ON THE HIT CBS SHOW “BIG BROTHER”… OR AS THEY LIKE TO SAY “SHOW-MANCE”. APRIL DOWLING WAS VOTED OFF AND WHEN SHE WALKED OUT SHE LEFT BEHIND TWO THINGS.. A CHANCE TO WIN HALF A MILLION DOLLARS AND HER NEW BOYFRIEND, OLLIE. OUR JULIE CHEN, WHO ALSO HOSTS BIG BROTHER 10, SPOKE WITH APRIL MOMENTS AFTER HER EVICTION.
April: I’m April. And I know how to handle men.
April: I honestly think of you as a best friend.
Ollie: Is it bad to be sexually attracted to your best friend?
April: No, that’s perfect.
Ollie: My relationship with April is far beyond what some people might call a showmance. It’s something that’s real.
Dan: It’s been my goal in this game to break up April and Ollie. That twosome is going to be broken up no matter what.
April: I’d look really stupid to America if I sat here and went, Oh, I’m not going home. I’m a realist.
Julie: By a vote of four to one, April, you are evicted from the Big Brother house.
Julie: You said once in the diary room, You gotta play the game, don’t let the game play you. Yet here you are. Did you get played?
April: I think there was parts of the game I definitely got played. I trusted too many people in the game. Kind of put my fate in their hands. Which obviously in turn left me here.
Julie: Let’s talk about Ollie. How serious is this relationship?
April: Obviously, living inside of a house and being with someone 24-7, and getting upset, and not being able to walk away, or even lock yourself in the bathroom because there’s no lock on the door, you can’t even do that, so, it’s very very difficult. So I think once we get into the real world, and things might change a little bit, that’s where we’re really going to find out more about each other and how we can interact with each other on a dailybasis.
Julie: Do you want it to be serious?
April: You know, I’m, I just stuttered there for a moment, um, no, I guess. No, I’m hoping that things work out, but I can’t forsee the future. If I could, I’d be winning a half-million dollars right now, so, obviously I can’t forsee the future. But I hope so. I hope so.
Julie: Was this game everything you expected it to be or was it ten times harder?
April: It was completely different than what I expected. But at the same time I loved every single minute. I would never take back a minute that I spent in that house.
Julie: April, we thank you.
April: Thank you, Julie.
