Spencer Pratt shed a tear as the Celebrity Big Brother 2013 housemates enjoyed their last supper yesterday, claiming that his and Heidi Montag’s bad behaviour has been an act.
As is customary at the end of the series, Big Brother laid on a slap-up dinner for the remaining five, as they celebrated making the final and looked back on their time in the house.
After they’d eaten, Big Brother prompted each housemate to stand up and make a speech as they toasted each other. But the best was kept for last, when Spencer – who has been at the heart of most of the drama – astonished the group by claiming that he really does like them.
“I truly retired reality television, and no matter what anyone had said I had said I would never go on reality TV again. I thought I had made my impact,” he begun.
“After seeing Big Brother I thought, oh that would be fun, I could go in there and stir it up and be the villain I’ve always dreamed of being. I got here and at first I told Big Brother, you gave me the wrong cast, these aren’t the people I was prepared to go to war with.
“I don’t know if that’s an American thing in the sense that I’m used to battling Americans who enjoy it. I got around British people and an an Australian and I was like, this is gonna be way harder than I planned.”
He continued: “I’ve never taken reality television as a real person, which it’s supposed to be, but I look at all forms of entertainment as entertainment, and it’s my opportunity to make conflict and drama. This was the most challenging experience of my life as in my heart I really do care about everyone, and it was so hard to dig deep and say a negative thing to be the bad guy.
“Usually it’s so easy to do because people deserve what I’m saying. I got here and I was like, these people don’t deserve what I’m saying, but I’ve gotta do what I was cast to do and what they wanted me to do.”
He begun welling up as he finished speaking. “It’s a hard position because I would have loved to have come on this experience and just been normal, but that’s not what they paid me to do, so it’s been very difficult for me to be awful but you know, I’ve gotta be the bad guy.
“I had to step up to pay my bills. I can’t come all the way from America and play the good guy, that’s not what they cast me for. I’m very thankful for this experience.”
Razor was the first to respond. “Well done. I hope you ain’t fucking acting!” he said. “Even baddies cry. It’s been a tough three weeks.”
“It’s been an emotional experience for everybody in here,” agreed Ryan.
“I’ve never seen my husband cry!” exclaimed Heidi.
“Well done Big Brother. They sure bring a party down don’t they?” quipped Claire. “Congratulations to every single one of us.”
However, it seems Razor and Rylan didn’t quite buy Spencer’s words, going outside for a bitch as soon as Big Brother opened the door. “Are they crocodiles for votes? Or does he truly mean it?” pondered Razor. “They’ve come too far to breakdown on the last night surely.”
“I can’t believe anything that comes out their mouths,” Rylan sniped. “If that was genuine then I feel for him, but I could see it in her face, she was like, ‘yes’. I ain’t got time for it.”
“He’s just said we’re not friends, were acquaintances, and now he’s crying over us,” concluded Razor.
