Blonds don't always have more fun. Take Big Brother 5's latest evictee, Holly King, whose platinum hairdo and painfully high-pitched voice inspired loathing in her female housemates (especially Diane). Many of the guys seemed enthralled with her, but Holly's budding romance with cuddle-buddy Jase caused friction among his testosterone-fueled allies. (They suspected she was manipulating his decisions using her feminine wiles.) Here, the bubbly Holly defends the Jase thing and discusses her "blondness" and her future plans.
TV Guide Online: When Julie showed you the twin twist with Adria, you looked stunned. Had you any clue?
Holly: I was really in shock. But when I watched the show on TV, I remembered things... I should have caught on! Like when they had that whole mole twin conversation and they accused me of being a twin. If I had been part of that [conversation] — and not just gone to bed — I probably could have put it together. Me being the smartest blond and all. The mastermind, obviously. [Laughs]
TVGO: With a 7-1 vote against you, the housemates must've perceived you as a big threat.
Holly: They did, but for the wrong reasons.
TVGO: You think it was solely based on your relationship with Jase?
Holly: It was definitely my relationship with Jase. I knew that my days were limited. I got a weird fortune out of a fortune cookie before I came in [the BB5 house]. It said, "You will have a lot of things stirred up next month, but it won't turn out exactly as you thought in the end." So I went in there thinking, "These people aren't going to give me a chance and I'm going to have to prove myself like crazy." And I was right.
TVGO: Is it just the perky blond thing or did something else make the other women instantly dislike you?
Holly: I kind of thought that I could just be everybody's friend — and not push people into making alliances with me — so that I wouldn't be a threat. But I got roped in with Jase because I got really homesick. I really felt he was somebody that I could feel comfortable around and not think about the outside world. And it helped me, but it hurt me at the same time.
TVGO: So do you regret hooking up with Jase?
Holly: I wish I had made friends with the girls and maybe tried a little harder. But I think just the way that me and Jase clicked, it would have happened eventually. I told Jase, "I don't want to sleep in your bed and cuddle with you because people are getting the wrong idea." He just wouldn't have it. He would be mean, and he wanted it his way or no way.
TVGO: It's almost like he was obsessed with you.
Holly: Yeah. He was like that — and because I didn't want to feel alienated from him in the house, I kind of just gave in to what he wanted me to do. I lost the game because of that.
TVGO: Diane made some nasty comments during her goodbye to you. Were you surprised?
Holly: No, I was not surprised whatsoever. The girl told me when she came in the house that she was not liking me and not liking the blond thing. Which is weird because her two favorite people are Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson. So for her to not like me? I mean I play Jessica in this little show that I do. I'm that type. The guys were saying it was a pure jealousy thing.
TVGO: Think you'll stay friends with anyone from the house?
Holly: No. Well, Jase if anyone, and maybe Lori. But the rest of them? Nope.
TVGO: What's next for you?
Holly: I'm going to try to continue to save money, and I'm going to try to work towards my cat-rescue center and hopefully get some sponsors. Or if I can get my own sitcom, that would be super!
TVGO: How many cats do you have?
Holly: Well, there are 75 on the property where I live, two are indoors and the rest I have outside.
TVGO: So you'd like to build some kind of shelter?
Holly: I definitely want to. I have to get a place that is zoned for it, and then I want to live there, too, so that I can be hands on with the cats at all times. And I want to know who they are going to, because we don't want any weird scientists or anything.
TVGO: Who cared for your cats while you were on Big Brother 5?
Holly: That would be Johnny Creepy.
TVGO: Um, Johnny Creepy?
Holly: Yeah, my ex-boyfriend Johnny Creepy. He's still like my best friend in the whole entire world. He took care of my kitties because he is used to them and he knows what to do and he did a great job.
TVGO: Did he take care of your mannequin, too?
Holly: Yes, he was taking care of Madam. She doesn't require any food, though, and that is how she keeps her slim figure.
TVGO: She would have done well in the house with the lack of food.
Holly: Yeah. She would have done fine. I just worry that Scott would have taken her arms off and played football outside with them or humped her leg or something.
