Last week, fans watched the season premiere of CBS‘ Big Brother 14, where Jodi Rollins, in a new twist, was eliminated the very first night. After the show, Jodi shared her thoughts, and revealed that she feels she was booted because she is an “older black woman.” Uh Oh, is she accusing the show or contestants of racism? Read on to find out and hear more of Jodi Rollins’ thoughts about her short time on the show!
Jodi Rollins was eliminated on the season 14 premiere of Big Brother, and Jodi shared that she is certain she knows why she was booted off first. Jodi told Zap2it after her elimination: “I have a theory as to why I’m not in the house…older people never win this game and black women never win this game and I’m an older black woman.” Uh oh, is she accusing the show of being racist? Not necessarily, as she explained: “I’m not saying anybody’s racist at all. When it comes to money, you have to make a decision based on what you think people will do. If you’re looking at who’s going to win the game, I’m not who you’d want. In this case, I think Dan didn’t choose me for those reasons.”
Hmm, while Jodi may not feel that there was any racism going on there, we can’t help but think there could be, I mean, why not give the older black woman a chance? In any event, Jodi is disappointed in her elimination, but she did reveal of Dan: “He made the wrong decision, but no, not bitter to him at all. But I knew he didn’t believe in me from the get-go. I was last chosen, so… that didn’t feel good either.” Jodi Rollins, who has been a Big Brother fan since the very first season, also said that being on the show was a dream come true for her.
So now that she is gone, who does she think are the strongest players? “Definitely Shane is the strongest. I feel like he could be a force to be reckoned with. Frank, because I’m suspicious of Frank, still waters run deep. He didn’t give off a lot of information. I think those are the main two.” The weaker players, Jodi Rollins thinks, are the girls that were on her team.
