The Sarah Scoop Show chatted with Big Brother legend James Huling about his experiences on seasons 17 and 18 of the show. James gave us the scoop on of why he turned down the current season of All Stars and shared some big names who were also meant to be in the original cast. He even told us about his current plans to run for mayor!
Catch up on all the juicy details and watch the full video interview below:
Returning to the “Big Brother” House
Tensions in the Big Brother house may be high, but James truly kept it lighthearted during his time in the house. Viewers enjoyed watching him so much, that he was voted America’s favorite houseguest. This recognition gained him a spot in the season 18 cast. It was easy for James to re-enter the house, after he was so close to winning the half a million.
“There was no way they were going to pick me for it (America’s Favorite). I was very surprised…knowing Johnny Mac was a loveable character on there as well. I sent America’s favorite couple out of the house, so I thought I was America’s most hated houseguest”
James Huling for Mayor
Many Big Brother stars take on new endeavors after leaving their shows, but never has one become a mayor. This past year James has started campaigning to become the mayor of Wichita Falls, TX.
“One of the questions on the poll was why should people trust me. Now trust is a big word. Go watch seasons 17 and 18 of Big Brother. You will know what type of person I am, and how I present myself.”
