Big Brother 2020: Evicted housemate Ian Joass glad he was voted out for strategy

Big Brother 2020: Evicted housemate Ian Joass glad he was voted out for strategy

Quirky and lovable character Ian Joass was given the boot out of the Big Brother house last night, but he says at least it wasn’t because he wasn’t liked.

The 25-year-old who is a waiter at Lucky Chan’s in Northbridge fell victim to Big Brother’s twist, which saw Angela Clancy become a master of the puppet strings, making strategic moves from the secret “bunker”.

“At least I was taken out for a strategic move rather than because people didn’t like me,” Joass told AAA.

“I’m not angry at Angela though — it’s a game and she played it better than me.”

Joass, who had formed an alliance with the “alpha group” which included Daniel Gorringe and evicted contestant Talia Rycroft, is shocked at the show’s portrayal of the pair.

Rycroft was labelled a “mean girl” after targeting Perth’s Hannah Campbell and calling her a “bitch”.

“Poor old Talia got the rough end of the stick,” Joass said.

“She didn’t even get a chance to redeem herself in the public eye. She was just portrayed badly all the way through.

“Honestly those guys have been nothing but lovely to me the entire show. I don’t think Dan rubbed up anyone too badly, we’ve all been a bit shocked about he’s been portrayed.”

Since the show’s filming Joass has been catching up with fellow Perth contestants Campbell and Casey Mazzucchelli.

“We actually caught up a few days ago with Casey and her boyfriend, and Hannah brought one of her mates around,” he said.

“Hannah is amazing, that’s probably one of my bigger regrets that I didn’t get to know Hannah on the show.

“I wish I had taken the time ... At least she’s in Perth so I can make up the ground work.”
