The day after Sarah Hanlon was named the winner of Big Brother Canada 3, I headed to the backyard to do extended interviews with the entire cast. I caught up with Ashleigh Wood to discuss her time in the house. I talked to Ashleigh about Godfrey’s decision to evict her and whether she had any ill feelings toward him (as he also ultimately ended up losing to Sarah because of the decision). As Ashleigh didn’t get a chance to see the jury’s reaction to her eviction, I asked her if she got a sense that they felt like they had lost the person they were planning to vote for when she left (as it appeared to the live audience in attendance). Ashleigh and I chatted about the stereotypes she faced in the house and in real life with people sometimes assuming that she is just the ditzy blonde and I asked the Calgarian if her stellar performance in the show’s memory challenges might have surprised some people. I asked Ashleigh to share her feelings about the makeshift Coup D’Etat that happened during her reign as the HOH where Canada voted and gave Brittnee the power to replace Ashleigh’s nominations. I asked Ashleigh to discuss whether she felt like the Diaper Alliance were the heroes or the villains of the season and we also chatted about her decision to vote for Sarah to win. I talked to the first runner-up about why it almost seemed like fate was against her from the start as all of the twists seemed to adversely affect her from the Triple Eviction (where she lost Kevin) to the aforementioned Coup D’Etat where her nominations were saved to the Double Eviction where she lost Zach and Pilar, it almost seemed like every twist only added to Wood’s woes. Ashleigh also reveals who she would have taken if she had won the final HOH and Zach and Pilar were still in the game. Ashleigh also discusses how Zach managed to win her heart and gives a checklist for potential future suitors. Check out the video above!
