Thanks to last week's surprise double eviction, James Rhine wasn't the only houseguest asked to pack his bags; Beau Beasley also was told to take his stylish duds to the jury house. The 25-year-old personal shopper's elimination seemed to be purely strategy on the part of then-Head of Household Howie, whose goal was to break up "Beau-Beau" and Ivette, the last pair with a chance to win double-the-$500,000 prize. Since Beau was already snugly tucked away in the (really nice) sequester house without telephone access, TVGuide.com e-mailed our questions to the tidy fashion maven and was surprised to find out that he loved getting dirty.
TVGuide.com: What was your favorite article of clothing you brought into the house with you?
Beau Beasley: I never leave home with out my Juicy Couture and my Lacoste jumpers. They are so comfy.
TVGuide.com: What was the one thing you missed the most from the outside world?
Beau: I'd have to say either my laptop or my Sidekick! I'm always connected with my friends, family and clients.
TVGuide.com: Did you have a favorite challenge?
Beau: Yes! "Playing Dirty" [where houseguests had to retrieve keys from a mud pit] was so much fun! Running through the mud and [pushing] it around was the biggest laugh.
TVGuide.com: Why did Ivette pick you to be her partner?
Beau: She picked me because we had great chemistry before we went into the house. Plus she trusts me and knows that I am a competitor.
TVGuide.com: Did you think you had a good chance to make it to the final two with Ivette?
Beau: Totally! Ivette and I were the most outspoken people in the house. We got along with almost everyone, and were never a threat until we were the last couple standing.
TVGuide.com: Do you feel betrayed by the Friendship alliance since Maggie didn't use her POV to save you or Ivette?
Beau: Not at all! Things happen for a reason. If it wasn't meant for me to win... maybe there's something better waiting for me when I get home. Besides, she made a promise to April, and I'd never want her to break a promise.
TVGuide.com: What was the worst thing about living in the house?
Beau: Not knowing what was going to happen next. We were always on edge in the house because SOS [the show's "Summer of Secrets"] always threw us another curveball.
TVGuide.com: Will you stay in touch with anyone besides Ivette when the game is over?
Beau: Definitely! I'm already making plans to go see Jen and April in Dallas, and Cappy [Eric] and Maggie in Vegas. Plus Howie lives 20 minutes away [from me] — we're going to [watch] the show together, because his friends TiVo'd the episodes.
TVGuide.com: Were you happy with the way that you played the game?
Beau: Totally! I stayed true to myself and I never lied! I made great bonds with Jen, Maggie, April, Ivette and Howie.
TVGuide.com: What do you plan on doing when this is all over?
Beau: I have my shopping clients that I need to shop for! Then I plan to take a few acting classes.
TVGuide.com: What do you think Ivette's chances are of winning without you around?
Beau: Slim to none! I'm not there to calm her down when she gets upset.
