PS: How did it feel to receive every vote last night?
Angela: Obviously it's not a nice feeling, but I knew my time was up. I was a challenge beast, I had rubbed some people the wrong way, so I knew — and you probably did see me scrambling — I knew my time was up. I was going to leave that house that night. It didn't shock me. I wasn't disappointed. I actually went out feeling well-accomplished. I don't hold any grudges because I knew it was a game and they outplayed me. Much respect for all of them.
PS: Were your last fighting words to the house before everybody voted a kind of scorched earth policy or did you think the tactic might save you?
Angela: I never take the easy way out. I'm always a fighter, so there was no way I was gonna say, Save me and not save Kieran because of da-da-da. I said what I had done in the house and I just brought it to the surface. So whether it was gonna save me or not, it was up to them, but I needed to let them know exactly how I was feeling.
PS: How frustrating was it to watch people seemingly coast through the show and not even try to eliminate people who to you appeared like contenders?
Angela: It was a bit disappointing obviously because I wanted us to play the game. Myself and Kieran and Melissa, we would put ourselves out there every challenge. It was a bit disappointing but everybody had a gameplay. Some people's strategy was to stay under the radar. I can't stay under the radar with my personality, and that got me out. Maybe if I would have changed and flown under the radar, it would've been different, but I wouldn't change it — that's who I am.
PS: Being unapologetically yourself meant that people watching along at home really loved you. How have you found the public's response to you on the show?
Angela: Really positive. It's overwhelming! It's just humbled me a lot. I'm just a nobody, you know? I just applied for the show like any other person. It could've gone either way. To come out and just have all that support and love, it's overwhelming. That's all I can say — it's overwhelming and I appreciate the love. It's been amazing. The last 24 hours was just filled with positive messages and support. I'm hoping they're gonna extend the same to the rest of my housemates, because it was a Big Brother family. It was a functioning dysfunctional family, but we still love each other outside of the game.
PS: Yesterday a housemate group chat was leaked. Is it real?
Angela: It is real, yeah. Everything is real. But you know, as you can see, I don't do low blows. I try to stay positive, because if you go low then it becomes personal and then people are spoiling it for the fans. That's why I try to take the high road really.
PS: Do you have a better relationship with the other contestants than those leaked messages or the way that they have spoken about you on the show would imply?
Angela: A lot of us are really good friends now, now that we are home with our families. Back in the Big Brother house, it was a pressure cooker and we were all in a game to win $250,000. So now that we don't have that pressure, and we can actually settle with our families and in real life, we're actually better friends. We are probably better friends than we were in the house.
