Audina is in the Big Brother house interviewing this yearâ€™s winner Politoed.Audina: Hello Politoed.
Politoed: *excited* Hi!
Audina: How does it feel to have won Pokémon Big Brother?
Politoed: Surreal, I canâ€™t quite wrap my head around the fact that I wonâ€¦ this was not part of the plan at all.
Audina: Well you quite famously came into this saying that doing a reality show was all about getting yourself noticed in the job marketâ€¦ do you think you achieved your goal?
Politoed: Well yes. I mean, I think even getting evicted at the first opportunity would have been enough butâ€¦ I actually won this thing.
Audina: It has been interesting seeing you develop in the house because in the beginning you were a lot more confrontational than towards the end, why do you think that was?
Politoed: Iâ€™m a bit of a neat freak and I think that will have probably come across. So, when there were messy housemates I was constantly on edgeâ€¦ and then there was Voltorb. But when they all were evicted things were manageable so I was able to relax. Plus it was then when I was able to really get to know Chimecho or Chingling as she was previously.
Audina: How was it when friends got evicted? It seems that you took it the hardest.
Politoed: Well yea, I mean it felt like the moment I was able to get really close to another housemate that they would then get evicted out. I think the worst was Purugly because then we noticed how fragile our friendships were.
Audina: What would you say was the best bit of being in the house?
Politoed: Wellâ€¦ I guess it would be the evening of my birthday. I mean the rest of the day was a total bust but in the evening where the others just pulled together for my sakeâ€¦ it was truly touching. Then they gave me this item of jewellery right here as a gift, for the first time in my life I felt special.
Audina: Any tasks that you especially loved?
Politoed: Well seeing Medicham strut his funky stuff to Rednex was pretty awesome but I think a really great task was that last one we did where we had to ignore the obvious. That was fun.
Audina: It was also when we discovered that Chimecho was fluent in Dutch.
Poltioed: Really? Well that girl sure is full of surprises.
Audina: So, what is next for Politoed?
Politoed: A vacation I hope. Thenâ€¦ who knows. I really hope to get a decent job out of this; possibly in education.
Audina: Well I would like to thank you for being a great contestant.
Politoed: Thank you for having me on.
Audina: Well thatâ€™s it for Pokémon Big Brother. Stay tuned as in a few minutes we will have a message from the showâ€™s creator with some behind the scenes insights into the show and the process behind it. So please do stick around. As for now, this is Audina saying goodbye and Iâ€™ll be seeing you real soon!
