Michelle Meyer wanted to leave Big Brother with a bang — literally. The season 18 contestant, who was evicted during the September 1 episode, jokes to Us Weekly about taking Paul Abrahamian’s beloved duck floatie on the way out the door.
“I will never regret taking his duck. I hope he never gets it back,” Michelle, 23, tells Us exclusively. “I was contemplating popping it on stage with my earring. It was his companion and I snatched it away with me.”
The Michigan native and self proclaimed Big Brother “superfan” didn’t just steal Pablo the pelican during her exit. She called out Nicole Franzel for playing a dirty game.
“We were best friends in the beginning,” she says. “But things started turning sour when she lied about Da’Vonne [Rogers] going home, and the next week cast to evict me. She also distanced herself and was with Corey [Brooks] 24/7.”
Michelle won’t only be remembered for her outbursts. She, perhaps, proved herself to be the most emotional player in BB history. She notably cried when she learned she was headed to the jury house, when she hit Paul too hard with an apple, when Victor Arroyo put her on the block and even when she projectile-vomited during an HOH competition.
“I’d say I cried maybe 40 times,” she tells Us, surprisingly adding: “I am not emotional outside the house.”

US WEEKLY: Who came up with your nickname and did you actually like it?
MICHELLE MEYER: Zakiyah [Everette] started it, and I liked it. I loved when I walked into a room and the boys would yell out "BIG MEECH." I was disappointed the audience didn’t scream it louder when I came out. If anyone sees me out, scream out "Big Meech" and I’ll be happy.
US: What do you wish you did differently in the house?
MM: I wish I could convince people to go after the couples more, split up the duos more. I hope to God I get called back for another season.
US: Did you want to say more to Nicole when you left the house? What would you have said?
MM: Heck yes, I didn’t have time to fit it all in. I would say that you guys better not take Nicole to final three because she’ll definitely be sitting in a final two seat. Victor/Paul, you gotta blow through this. Natalie/James, you gotta do your thing.
US: What did you like best about Frank Eudy?
MM: Frank is hilarious. He’s a superfan. Season 14 was one of my favorite seasons — he got to play with Ian [Terry] and Dan [Gheesling].
US: Do you hope you stay in touch after the show?
MM: I was hoping it would be in jury house to hang out. I hope he wants to hang out outside the house, though I didn’t use the veto on him. I could have saved him.
US: Do you still have a crush on him?
MM: No, the crush dissipated. He was really gassy, and he has a girlfriend.
The next Big Brother airs on CBS Wednesday, September 7, at 8 p.m. ET.
