Big Brother's Lara addresses the 'pillow flip' controversy

Big Brother housemate Lara has broken her silence over the infamous 'pillow flip' situation.

Video transcript

- I was thinking about that. When I watched the show, when I was watching it, I heard everybody say, call it, call it. And I was saying to myself on the television, call it.

But at that time, I was so in my head with emotions. I was so-- I can't even tell you the upset. I felt like I needed to do a poo. I wanted to vomit. I didn't know what to do.

I felt like my dad was like watching me and having like been saying, I told you not to give your word of honor. And I was so up in my head. And I knew what I was going to do and I just flipped the cushion.

And I think, yeah, in hindsight, now when I look at it, I was calling out to myself, call out heads or tails. But I didn't think to say that, do you know what I mean, at the time.

If I was playing tactically, and like, I could have said, I'm going to do this strategically, and I'm going to put Joel up because Joel will beat Drew, like, that would have been the strategic thing to do. But I just-- I was caught up in my head, to be honest.

It's funny watching it though, isn't it? [LAUGHS] I'm going, Lara, call it. Like, I wasn't even-- it wasn't even in my head. Ah! Anyway.
