Tanisha Thomas Interview – Queen of the House of Villains

Q: You were in shock when you won. Did you have any backup plans in case Bananas took the crown?

A: (Laughs) Bananas and I were neck-and-neck the whole game, so I had mentally prepared for either outcome. But when Anfisa’s vote broke the tie, it was pure disbelief. My heart was pounding like a drum solo!

Q: You say you played with integrity, but surely some lines were crossed in the House of Villains. Any regrets?

A: Playing a “villain” requires strategic jabs and calculated moves. I might have ruffled some feathers but never stooped to manipulation or personal attacks. My conscience is clear on that. There were some tough choices, though. Voting out Bobby still stings a bit, but it was a strategic risk I had to take.

Q: Speaking of Bobby, your “Gospel Truth” showdown got heated. Was it genuine tension or just good TV drama?

A: (Winks) Let’s just say that microphone shadows cast long reflections. We had our differences, but there’s respect there, too. He’s a fierce competitor, and that clash made for some explosive television, wouldn’t you say?

Q: You mentioned redefining the “villain” image. What do you hope viewers take away from your win?

A: I want people to see that being a “villain” doesn’t mean you’re heartless or evil. It’s about playing smart, owning your truth, and not being afraid to challenge the status quo. You can be cunning and ambitious while having integrity and staying true to your values. That’s the kind of villain I wanted to be.

Q: Now that you’re the reigning champion, what’s next for Tanisha Thomas? World domination… or a cozy reality TV retirement?

A: (Grinning) World domination sounds exhausting! But seriously, this win opens so many doors. I’ve got some exciting projects in the pipeline, including a possible talk show where I can dish the dirt on reality TV from the villain’s perspective. Stay tuned!
