Derek Xiao’s Biggest Regret
After getting evicted by Sarah Steagall, he revealed what he would have done if he’d survived. This is also some kind of a message to Christian Birkenberger.
According to Derek X,
“This will not come as a surprise to anyone, but my biggest regret was not playing that stupid roulette wheel. I should’ve spent my BB Bucks while I had a chance. But, at a larger level, I think my regret is that I ended up feeling too safe. I thought I had a good handle on the game but in Big Brother you have to be constantly questioning your assumptions and trying to ask yourself what is going on in the house. I think I stopped asking myself that question and that’s when I ended up getting evicted”
