Time to go, Jas

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

BIG Brother’s three-times nom­i­nated house­mate Mikkayla should start to see her for­tunes rise ac­cord­ing to the show’s lat­est evictee, Jas­min Aguil­era.

Mikkayla, nom­i­nated for the first two evic­tions on the lat­est se­ries of Chan­nel 9 show, was on both oc­ca­sions was saved from a pub­lic vote.

On Mon­day, she faced evic­tion but sur­vived when Aguil­era made her exit.

Aguil­era re­ceived just 6 per cent of view­ers’ votes, while Mikkayla col­lected 15 per cent.

Aguil­era says most house­mates keep their most an­noy­ing per­son­al­ity traits sup­pressed dur­ing the first few weeks of the re­al­ity show – ex­cept Mikkayla.

‘‘She’s an easy tar­get be­cause in the first week she was the only one who an­noyed peo­ple in the house . . . she was a lit­tle bit bossy,’’ Aguil­era says. ‘‘She has set­tled in and she doesn’t an­noy peo­ple as much.

‘‘I think other peo­ple’s bad habits will start to over­take hers and she won’t be up each week.’’

Be­fore en­ter­ing the Big Brother house, Aguil­era quit her job as a flight at­ten­dant with Vir­gin Aus­tralia.

Now she’s been evicted af­ter four weeks in the house, the 24-year-old says she does not have a job and has no idea what she will do next. ‘‘I tried to get leave but couldn’t,’’ Aguil­era says. ‘‘This was a once-in-a-life­time op­por­tu­nity and I would re­gret it more if I hadn’t done Big Brother than keep my job, so I re­signed. I have no plans or ideas and I’m just go­ing to have to wing it.’’

Aguil­era says be­ing in the Big Brother house, sit­u­ated in­side Dream­world theme park on the Gold Coast, was like be­ing on hol­i­day.

It took her just a few days to ad­just to be­ing shut off from fam­ily and friends and hav­ing to ac­quaint her­self with a bunch of peo­ple she had never met.

She has no re­grets about kissing Ed in the spa, which led to a break­down in her friend­ship with Jade.
