Big Brother’s Victor Arroyo: Did He Consider Backstabbing Nicole Franzel and Corey Brooks? (Exclusive)

Three strikes and you’re out. Big Brother’s Victor Arroyo was kicked out of the house for the third and final time Tuesday, September 13 — after one heck of a fight. The L.A. resident and competition beast opens up to Us Weekly about his time during the CBS series.

Victor was finally booted for good when Nicole Franzel nominated him for eviction against his BFF Paul Abrahamian. The decision was a shock to both Victor and Paul, who aligned themselves with Nicole and Corey Brooks. Victor said that he never would have put Nicole and Corey on the block — and is sticking to his word.

“It was a thought that was running through Paul’s mind, but I didn’t want to entertain it because I wanted to be loyal to the final four” he explains to Us.

Following his eviction, Victor admitted to host Julie Chen that trusting others too much was ultimately his downfall. He tells Us: “I played the game how I am in real life: loyal, strong and goofy.”

Victor may have not won the $500,000 grand prize, but he did come away with a new bromance. “Paul now feels like the guy that was your best friend in high school,” he says. “We have a lot of inside jokes, played a lot of pool and we just always hung out together. My best moments with him were friendship time in the safari room, beating him in pool and cooking together.”

For more with Victor, read the rest of his Q&A below:

US WEEKLY: What was the easiest and toughest competition to get through during the Battle Back competition?

VICTOR ARROYO: The easiest would have to be the tennis comp that I played against Jozea [Flores]. The toughest comp was the puzzle, the 52-piece puzzle against Tiffany [Rousso]. They were all quote-unquote, life-and-death situations, so they were all hard.

US: What was going on through your head during the Jury Battle Back?

VA: I was solid on the wall while Paulie [Calafiore] was on the wall. When I saw him start to shake I got even stronger. When I saw him fall, that was when I started to shake because I knew I was back into the house.

US: Who did you trust the least in the house?

VA: I guess Paulie was the one I trusted least because he back-doored me and when I started getting some trust in him again, I found out he had a final three behind my back.

US: Would you do another season? What would you do different and similar?

VA: I would definitely come back for another season. I would still compete in each of the comps as strong as I did this season. The only thing I would do differently is not trust people as much, use my loyalty to my favor and possibly do some backstabbing.

US: Would you consider getting into a showmance?

VA: Yes, I would be open to a showmance if I played again — if the right girl is involved.

The next Big Brother airs on CBS Friday, September 16, at 8 p.m. ET.
