ESPN has a new Q&A online with “Big Brother” Jessie Godderz. Below is an excerpt:
So that’s why you did the show?
“Money was tight, so I was there on ‘Big Brother’ to win a half a million dollars. That’s a great payday for anybody. That was my goal. My dream was to get into wrestling after that, and one thing led to another. I didn’t think I could acquire that kind of superstardom. I talked to wrestling legend Ric Flair while at the Venice Gold’s Gym, and he told me I should really go to Florida because that’s where the wrestlers are. I wanted to take that leap. That’s what I did. I keep getting brought back to ‘Big Brother’ because I make such a positive impression. I’ve been back even more than those people that America loves.”
