Another summer, another second place finish for Big Brother houseguest Paul Abrahamian.
“[The jury votes] honestly surprise me a little bit,” Paul tells ET. “I think everybody was pissed. I was the only vet in the house. I don't know what they expected me to do, just roll over and give them the game? But I wasn't going to do that, so I think when they got to jury, ‘Oh. Paul beat us. Well, I hate him now.'”
ET caught up with the two-time runner-up in the Big Brother backyard after Wednesday night’s finale, which saw the jury vote 5-4 to give the $500,000 grand prize to Josh Martinez. Paul says he was most surprised by former allies Alex Ow and Jason Dent’s votes go to Josh, as well as sworn enemy Cody Nickson’s vote.
“I didn't think there would be anything on planet Earth sitting next to Josh that Cody would vote for,” he jokes. “But apparently, I’m it."
While we had Paul, we also got his take on the news that his season 18 pals, Victor Arroyo and Nicole Franzel, are dating. The former houseguests reconnected at the season 18 premiere party earlier this summer.
“I thought that was a joke,” Paul admits. “He's like, ‘This is my girlfriend.’ I'm like, shut up, Victor. What's up, Nic -- and then they kissed and I was like... alright, well, that's happening now. I wish them luck. That's super bizarre. I hope a weird baby comes out of it that'll be slightly hairy and slightly nerdy all at once. I'm into it.”
