During an interview with Parade right after the big brother 24 Finale shared his thoughts on his gameplay with Turner.
“I feel like I got into a lot of good situations and a lot of bad situations. And I had to make up for it. And I’m just happy to be here at the end of the day,” Turner said. “However, there were some tougher days than others, like when Alyssa was voted out and the whole explosion happened with Brittany. I don’t know what’s shown, so I’m just going by what I can remember. That was a tough day.”
He continued, “Being a have-not was a tough day. Jasmine’s birthday was terribly boring. But I did my best. And even when I failed, when I was beaten, when I was in third place, I was like, ‘Well, I’m not mad.’ I got further than I thought! I thought there was a chance I would have been out in the first week. So the fact that it wasn’t me and made it onto the jury and made it into the last three? I can not complain.”
