RFWill here you go I typed up the interview but left out the headline trivia stuff because I don't think that you really care about it.
Julie: I'm sitting here talking with Dustin the first member of the jury of seven for BB8. Alright, do you know anything that has happened in the house since you left, like who won HOH last night?
Dustin: I have absolutely no idea what is going on in the house right now. I'm sure it is utter pandemonium for several houseguests and some houseguests are cheering with glee.
Julie: Well I can tell you because you will be find out that Daniele won HOH last night. (Dustin is disgusted and makes a noise) OOh dear what are you thinking?
Dustin: Well...ummm, for Dick and Daniele to continue their streak in this house that's exactly what needed to happen. Daniele. If for the two of them to continue to remain in this house together for Daniele to win HOH was the best for them. I can't say what she will do with that, but interesting to know.
Julie: You were HOH once, how did you like it?
Dustin: Being HOH is not all that it's cracked up to be. I'll be honest with you there is a lot of pressure, you create enemies, you have to make deals, and there's a lot of work on all sides. To make not only everybody happy, but to keep yourself happy as well and staying true to your alliance, staying true to the house and to the house goals while trying to furhter yourself in the game at the same time. It's not easy.
Julie: Were you closest to Amber in the house?
Julie: She was the closest friend that you had?
Julie: Now she cries very easily and a lot. How did you deal with all of that?
Dustin: Amber being the emotional person that she is began to wear thin on me, but you can't hate somebody for the fact that they care. So it was kinda a mixed bag, but for the most part I was definately always there to support her but at the same time I was, I was always the one to crack the whip and say keep you head in the game because this is a headgame it's not a game you want to play with your heart you want to play this game with your head.
Julie: What drew the two of you together?
Dustin: Honestly it was the very first night. Coming down the stairs was a major feat and I have to give credit to Jessica, Dick and myself for being able to do that with such poise.
Julie: We should just explain that when you came down the stairs that is when it was revealed that you were part of the twist this year, where you were forced to live with your quote unquote enemy, your ex-boyfriend Joe. That relationship did not end on a good note. What did you think when you saw him and saw what you had to deal with?
Dustin: When it was revealed to me that Joe would be in the house I reacted exactly how I knew I would react and that was playing off of his reaction. Joe's a very
Julie: He snubbed you.
Dustin: He's a very good character we shall say he...
Julie: Why that is not really how he is?
Dustin: Well no I am saying that Joe puts on a show and that he is very lively. He is a very lively individual and so by taking more of the backseat approach cus he was very aggressive in his approach to trash talk me and to say bad things about me and to set me up to sort of be an evil person. By taking the higher road between the two of us I feel like it set me apart from him and I lasted a lot longer than him in the game because of it.
Julie: You admitted that you were a little bit greedy in the POV com where you got the $5000 and the trip to Barbados. Did you even think that might make some of your housemates upset?
Dustin: Absolutely. I knew going into that POV that if it was one where prizes were going to be offered that I would take it and I have no qualms about it. You know it was my HOH reign and I would do with it what I please. And at that moment in the game it did not matter who went home. I had Kail and Jen on the block and if either one of them came down and another one went up it really didn't hurt of affect me as far as my game went. And also at that point, I felt that if I didn't win this thing then I am going to at least walk out with something.
Julie: So you are twice as glad now you made the right move.
Dustin: I did, yep. There were only a handful of regrets that I have.
Julie: What are they?
Dustin: You know honestly I would say...
Julie: Volunterring to go on the block..
Dustin: Volunterring to go on the block number one and the behaviour I exhibited over the past week. I was really disappointited in myself by taking the low road. And by treating Dick and Daniele in the manner in which they wanted me to. I had better expectations of myself and the way I would handle myself under those situations and I...
Julie: What do you think of them, Dick and Daniele?
Dustin: Not to highly.
Julie: Why, why her?
Dustin: She has a very...Daniele has a very negative attitude in the house and she chose to...and you know life is all based on choices and the choices that you make in this game are no different. And she chose to isolate herself with Nick in the first four weeks and once he was out of the game she chose to isolate herself with her father. And her relationship building skills are poor. And she chose not to utilize the time wisely to make strategic relationships with people and it was just her negativity in the house that has drawn her to the position in which she is in right now.
Julie: And Dick?
Dustin: Dick is a 44 year old child and, you know, I can't say it enough. Excellent job in casting because I would never find a person like him on the streets and consider him to be even an adult let alone a parent.
Julie: Do you think his behaviour is strategy though?
Dustin: Absolutely. Dick's strategy is fear, to implement fear. But fear does not beget respect and Dick lost my respect early on in the game by ummm....
Julie: Does it work?
Dustin: It apparently works with alot of people and that's what sad, is that a lot of people fall for it and I believe I went home this week is because the duo of...the pairing of Dick's fear tactics and Daniele's strong strategic competition is probably what ended me in the house.
Julie: Was being in the house and playing the game as hard as you thought it was going to be? Was it what you had imagined?
Dustin: It was not what I imagined. It was much more different. You know being in that house and actually living with these people as opposed to just seeing them on television is much more difficult in the house, but it is also a different experience because there is a whole foundation of relationships built with these people based on body language, facial expression, and let alone how much you enjoy the individual so there is a lot more to it than you see on the show. I will say that much.
Julie: What do you say will missed most?
Dustin: Oh what did I missed most windows and trees and a breeze once in a while. Not even seeing as much as another person's face aside from the 13 houseguests got really old.
