On last Thursday's installment of Big Brother 5, 26-year-old yoga instructor Lori became the second houseguest to be evicted by her roomies. But don't feel too badly for her — the blow was softened by that $10,000 she opted to take instead of stocking the house's pantry. (Anyone still wondering why Lori got the boot?) TV Guide Online caught up with the Boston babe shortly after her ouster to get the skinny on her brief stay in the house that Orwell built.
TV Guide Online: Were you shocked to be nominated for eviction so soon?
Lori: No, only because Marvin won Head of Household and I knew he was going to nominate me.
TVGO: Do you regret choosing the $10,000 windfall over food for the household?
Lori: I don't regret it, but I definitely do think that it had something to do with the fact that I was nominated. It made me a target immediately.
TVGO: Marvin said he nominated you because you were the strongest player in the game. Do you think he meant it?
Lori: I do think that he meant that. I think that he's pretty sincere. I think that I was the biggest threat to him, so I think he meant it.
TVGO: Might "Nakomis" and Michael's family ties affect the game down the line?
Lori: No. I've spoken to Nic and I've heard her say a few times that she will vote him out if she has to. I think she's more solid with the girl alliance.
TVGO: What do you think about the twist with Adria and her twin, Natalie, playing as one person?
Lori: I could not believe it. I'm totally shocked. I think that if they make it to Week 5, the two of them in, it's gonna depend a lot on who gets Head of Household. If they get it, they have a strong chance [of going far in the game].
TVGO: Do you think the other houseguests will hold it against them?
Lori: I think that the guys will. I think that the girls will use it to their advantage.
TVGO: Do you think anyone will be able to stop the Four Horsemen?
Lori: I think that if Will gets Head of Household next week, he has the guts to put them out. I think that Karen — I hope — has the guts to put them out. Definitely Adria. There's a few people that I think will definitely put them out.
TVGO: Is there a weak link in that foursome?
Lori: Drew. Something's starting up [emotionally between him and] Diane; I don't know where it's going to go, I'm not really sure, but that could possibly make him the weak link of that group.
TVGO: What did you miss most about home during your stay in the BB house?
Lori: I can't believe how much I missed food. I was having dreams about food... Pizza — I was craving it.
TVGO: With no TV, no radio, no newspapers, no books, what did you do all day?
Lori: It was absolutely the most boring thing I've ever done in my life. I think we started going crazy. We would just talk and talk and talk, and then everyone just went a little bit crazy. I think that that was our amusement.
TVGO: Who was the most annoying house guest?
Lori: Jase and Scott. It was a tie.
TVGO: Who was the messiest?
TVGO: Anything you'd do differently if you could do it all over?
Lori: I think I would just try and stay a little bit more low-key and not make myself seem as powerful as everyone thought I was.
TVGO: After eating it for a week straight, how do you feel about peanut butter and jelly?
Lori: Hate it. Never again. The thought of it makes me want to throw up!
