|“||Sooo, I hate BotB, like I REALLY hate it. Worst twist ever. Nothing fun about it and it's such a bother having to work a way around it. I ended up winning HoH again, and knowing that whoever I nominated that just gonna win against Dallas' noms, I decided to nominate my own allies, Julia and CJ in order to grant them safety this week. I know it's a risk to purposely lose the BotB, especially when these bitches (Isaac, Ella) were trying to get me out last time, but if the plan works, then hopefully CJ, Julia (if either of them get picked to play POV), or I can win the veto and take me off, leaving all 3 of us safe for the week.||”|
|“||so my plan was a success colonthree emoticon I was safe, Julia and CJ were safe, and we were able send something Marco packing. It was really a toss up between Marco and Isaac, but Marco had better connections with Ella and Johnny so he had to go||”|
|“|| Hey! Before I start I just want to thank you guys for making this such a fun (and stressful) season. These 100 days of hell wouldn’t have been as torturous if it weren’t for yall heart emoticon
Now I want to give a special shout out to a certain individual. This person fucked us in a way that no one should ever be fucked, but for some reason we kept coming back for more. *looks at CJ* So thank you Marish for introducing this twist that was probably made by Satan himself, The Battle of the Block!!
Coming into this season, I was expecting to play just as I did the last time, but BotB completely changed how I had to play this game. I think we were all in agreement that throwing the first few HoHs was probably the best thing we could do, because I know it was for me. The only little hiccup in my plan was when I turned in a shitty score during Week 4 instead of abstaining like I had done in the previous weeks. As it turned out, everyone else turned in a shittier score and I ended up with an HoH I didn’t want in the first place. But I took this HoH and ran with it, targeting Lucas and rallying the votes for him to go in a unanimous vote. Through all my complaining and bitching, I believe I was able to successfully navigate myself throughout the season while making the best out of a bad situation.
One thing I wasn’t able to do last season that I did this time was get myself into a solid alliance. That’s where Devil’s Threeway comes into play. Ash, CJ, and I teamed up back in Week 2 and were able to control a significant portion of the game, either through HoH wins or our combined influence with the other contestants. Both Ash and CJ were strong players and I’m lucky that I was fortunate enough to able to play with them instead of against them. We kept each other safe, no matter if it meant exposing ourselves as a threesome. It was my connection with them that got Ash to use the PoV on me when people *cough* Ella *cough* Isaac *cough* were telling her that they wanted me out during Week 10. And in turn I protect them by nominating both CJ and Ash so that they could snatch themselves some immunity during Week 11 while I purposely put myself in danger. People can misconstrue that to think I was blindly loyal and will picture me as a sheep because of it, but at the end of the day I ended up voting both of them out. Not because I was manipulated into doing so by Dallas or Ella, but because I knew both of them stood between me and winning this game. They were my closest allies and my best friends in this game, but they were also my biggest competition. I took absolutely no pleasure in doing voting them out , but I knew it was something that needed to be done because we’re all playing a game where the objective is to win.
And while I was in cahoots with them the whole time, I wasn’t afraid to venture out and make other allies and play my own game. Week 5, Ella comes up to me and Patryk asking if we could throw the BotB if she nominated us so that she could get Ahad out. I didn’t want to, but in order to gain favor I agreed. Isaac was also one of the people I considered my closest allies. When we were both on the block against Patryk, I kept the vote from becoming a 6-6 tie which would have allowed Ella to vote him out. We were as thick as thieves until I learned that my own husband wanted me out *cries*
I will admit that I wasn’t as social with some of you as I should have been and if that keeps me from getting your vote I understand, but I believe my strategic game should be enough to earn me the title of Secret Story All-Stars Champion. I was the deciding vote in numerous evictions and each one got me one step closer to the end. I was more ruthless and cutthroat this time around and I had held my fate in my own hands. There were times I wasn’t afraid to go against people’s wishes because I knew that there were no benefits for me. I took out the biggest threat in Julia (I now hang her head on my mantle) and if you wanna count comp wins, I did win 3 HoHs, 2 PoV, and 4 fucking Battle of the Blocks.
Thanks for taking the time to read this monster of an Opening Speech. This is longer than an essay I had to write for my History class omfg. I’m looking forward to reading what you guys have to say and answering any questions you may have. Unless you write mean stuff about me. ;-;

|“||well right now there's really not much to go off of for people to start thinking that i'm the saboteur i have some good relationship with some people so I hope I don't get too many accusations lol||”|
|“||I'm so happy I was able to win HoH lol Looking at the scores everyone got, I feel like i really didn't need to go all out for this challenge and hopefully it doesn't paint a giant bullseye on me after this week is over. As for targets, I'd really love to go after people like Jamie or Nathaniel, but for now I think it's best to just go after week players||”|
|“||Norbert and Daniel are some of the people who have never talked to me in the game which makes this decision very easy. Also, they're some of the weaker players so I know they couldn't come after me even if they wanted to. I really wanted to put up people like Jamie and Nathaniel who are strong challenge competitors, but I'd rather stay out of their crosshairs for now. They're people I'd rather backdoor than nominate right off the bat."||”|
|“||I want hunter to go cause I know he's onto me. But Nathaniel has proven to be very good in competitions. I'll be happy if ether of them go tbh||”|
|“||I think every week is my final week but I think I'll be targeted this week for sure. Which is why I decided to scare one of the strongest challenge players here, Tyler M.||”|
|“||I feel like I now made a mistake in not using the POV on Gavin. Tyler M literally told me that he thinks the sab is either me or Gavin so this is bad. But the harm is done and now I don't think I can save Gavin. But for my individual game, all I need to do is win HoH (which is probs not gonna happen because accusations) or POV. Patryk staying is better cause he has that penalty and with me being able to scare somebody and give them a penalty that gives me a 1/3 chance of winning POV. so ya||”|
|“|| Hey guys! Before I start I just wanna thank all of you for making this such a fun season and Marish for having the patience to bear (hehehe) with all our nonsense in the main chat. This has been a long season and I'm as ready just as the rest of you for it to end, but I'd like you guys to hear me out as to why I think I deserve to be the next Secret Story Champion.
Fortunately, I was able to sit and relax for the first five weeks of the game since the HoH's were all controlled by my allies as well as myself. I'd say my first HoH was pretty non eventful as I just wanted to get through with it with as little blood in my hands as I could. I did have my eyes set on some big targets, namely Nathaniel, but I knew that making a big move only on Week 2 was going to put a huge target on me.
It was Weeks 5 and 6 where I felt my game took a huge turn for the worst. At that time, Hunter came up to me for the first time in this game and began asking some questions relating to the Saboteur. I knew the jig was up and it was only a matter of time before the whole house found out. It was also Week 6 where I foolishly tried to go for the PoV and ended up with automatic accusations against me as well as being unable to vote for the next three evictions. Because of that I was helpless as I saw my closest ally, Tyler R, get backdoored in a close vote.
I made Jury, but this was the point where I felt like I was completely alone. The next week, I was able to win the PoV where I was faced with a huge decision. I knew Kevin was the target and saving him with my veto was probably my better option, but at that point, Kevin had continuously been accused meaning that I couldn't rely on him to win HoH and essentially I'd be fighting with him for PoV. I knew Kevin was a comp beast so for the sake of self-preservation I had to let him go.
As it got closer to the F5, I knew that my goal as Saboteur was closer in sight. For some reason, people thought Gavin was the Sab so I just played along with their theories. I was nominated for the first time at the F6 and luckily I was able to win Veto and guarantee myself a spot in the F5, reaching my goal. From then on my actions were pretty self-explanatory as I was the main decider of who went home for the next 3 evictions.
Now that I sit here in the final two, I want to prove to you guys that I deserve to win the title. I won 3 HoHs and 5 PoVs and I never sat on the block on eviction night. I'll say I wasn't a huge fan of the Salem thing, as basically all I did the the Sab power was to scare people I didn't want to see becoming HoH, and even so i failed at scaring people half of the time.
I'm ready to answer and questions you guys have, and once again thanks for making this a fun season
