While there are still lingering tensions between the housemates, Kirk says that there were significantly fewer explosive moments between them. He says even Gus and Jerimiah managed to keep their arguments to a minimum.
“There weren’t any fights between them like there were before,” Kirk said. “It was, I would say, cordial at least, you know. Nothing really bad. They just kind of just knew they had to exist in the house with each other. And that’s it.”
Nilsa’s pregnancy also meant the house had to be a bit tamer than in previous seasons. “We couldn’t really turn up as much and we had to be quiet at certain times of the night to respect her,” he says “It’s kind of hard because usually, we’re pretty rowdy and turn up and get loud and fight, but we had to hold back a lot just to make sure she had a healthy pregnancy.”
But the calmness was welcomed this season, Kirk says. After so many explosive fights over the years, he welcomed a chance to let things blow over a bit better.
“I want to get back to how it was the first couple seasons where everyone got along and had fun,” he says. “You know, this time has been kind of stressful, people have been fighting and holding on to grudges, life’s too short for that bulls–t.”
