Friday night during a dramatic double eviction episode of “Celebrity Big Brother,” Tom Green went from Head of Household to evicted houseguest after Lolo Jones won HOH and sent him packing. Just moments earlier, Lolo’s closest ally, Natalie Eva Marie, was evicted under Tom’s reign. Despite Lolo seeking revenge against Tom, there is no animosity. “I think I’m voting for Lolo,” Tom says to host Julie Chen Moonves when asked who he’s rooting for. “I mean rooting! Sorry I just can’t even believe I’m outside right now.”
Julie reminds Tom that he was on quite a roll after winning recent HOH and Veto competitions, so how did he end up next to her outside the house? “I felt like the odds were a little against me in the beginning,” Tom admits. “I made a close alliance with Anthony Scaramucci and Kato Kaelin and then when the Mooch suddenly left, me and Kato were on our own. I had to fight for those competitions. I think that’s pretty cool I can say I’ve been on ‘Big Brother,’ I’ve won HOH twice and I’ve won two Vetoes. But I think that kind of caused a little bit of drama in the house. When they know you have that HOH power, it really made some people scared.
In a season that has proven to be dominated by women, Julie questioned why Tom and Kato seemed to be targeting all the men in the house. “Hindsight is 20/20,” Tom explains. “I’m not sure I would do that knowing what I know now. Everyone goes off into their little clicks. When Anthony left, I kind of realized Joey [Lawrence], Jonathan [Bennett] and Ryan [Lochte] were off in their little section. It seemed like they were in an alliance with some other people, but not with us. So it kind of felt like they were against us, so we went against them.
With all the drama that happened in the “Celebrity Big Brother” house, Tom did take away an important life lesson. “I just think that I learned a lot about the way humans behave,” he says. “We really change very quickly on a dime. When somebody wins a competition, all the sudden your best friend one day is your worst enemy the next. I think it’s sort of a sad thing to learn, but also I think I’ll carry that with me in life.”
