I stole a few minutes out of Dillish’s very busy schedule to catch up with her a day after her Big Brother victory and this is what she had to say:

Taz: Can you describe the kind of house you are going to buy?

Dillish: I want a little comfortable home. I want to make sure each one of my siblings have their own rooms finally. Give my mother the kitchen she’s always wanted and get myself that 62 inch television set I’ve always wanted. I am going to make it a comfortable house for everyone and not lavish at all.

Taz: How many siblings do you have?

Dillish: Four, I am the oldest.

Taz: Are you planning to throw a huge party when you get back home?

Dillish: (screams) Amen! Yes! I hope to do it and I sure will. I’m just not sure about inviting EVERYONE.

Taz: Is there any housemate you won’t invite?

Dillish: I will invite all housemates. I loved all of them. If they don’t love me that’s their story, but I want everyone there and I will invite them.

Taz: So you didn’t have a least favourite in the house?

Dillish: There are people that I didn’t get along with like Hakeem and Bolt but in the long run you forgive each other and move on. I really loved everyone and had no problem with them, I was just a princess (laughs)…

Taz: Who was your most favourite housemate?

Dillish: Uhhhmm, definitely Bassey, Cleo, Elkem, Melvin, Maria and Betty.

Taz: Are you planning on keeping in touch with these guys?

Dillish: Yes definitely. Elikem and I are planning to work together on a movie.

Taz: What are you looking forward to most about going home?

Dillish: I just can’t wait to see my siblings; I can’t wait to see my family, the Namibian people and have those random chats. I just can’t wait to go back to my normal life.

Taz: Is Maria going to get anything out of your winnings since you entered together? 

Dillish Interview Large

Dillish: We had an agreement when we went into the house. We had no idea any of us would win and we agreed that if any of us wins we’d share some of the money. So I have to live up to the promise - I am a woman of my word, so I’ll honour it. I owe her a little something.

Taz: Did you have any housemate you thought was your biggest competition in the house?

Dillish: Uhhhmm for me, I didn’t even think I’d take the money so I didn’t even see anyone as competition until we became 14 or so. At some point I thought Oneal, Elikem or Sulu would take the money based on their characteristics. I even thought Natasha would win as she would wake up at 4am to clean the house.

Taz: If you didn’t win, which of the finalists would you have preferred to win the prize?

Dillish: Definitely Cleo. She deserves it just as much as m. I wish there was some for her too - it’s sad that there’s only one winner.

Taz: Why do you think Africa fell in love with you?

Dillish: I don’t know hey. I really don’t. I’m still shocked that they chose me, you know?I mean after all I’m just a princess (laughs) - nothing much. They kept on saving me time and again and I was like maybe I am doing something wrong? I didn’t understand how someone would stay all night and vote for me. I don’t know why they were in love with me, I’m all goofy and I was always minding my own business. I wasn’t controversial, coniving or backstabbing in order to win. So this year it’s like Africa changed their minds.

Taz: Who do you have to thank for all this?

Dillish: Definitely God. Big Brother, Maria and everyone in Africa who voted for me.

Taz: Did you have a game plan and did it work?

Dillish: I didn’t. I just jumped into the game and brought myself. If someone enters next year and asked me what to do, I’d tell them ‘be yourself’, don’t try be someone else or copy someone else’s game plan, it helps being you - all the time.

Thanks Taz, weitse I had no idea she and Maria were friends until the finale. I watched very little of the show this year.Congrats to Dilish...I still don't know how it came down to her as I thought, Natasha,Sulu,Feza,Angelo deserved to win but when it came down to the last 5 I voted like crazy for her.Mainly because she is sweet and her story...Glad it came down to the Southern part again.Now we wait for BigBrotherSouthAfrica.

Thanks @Taz, lovely interview n very honest answers too...... Wish Dillish all da best in all she does n hopes her family bonds even tighter dan ever b4. I see Bev is out of her fav hsmates; also very honest as Bev was da escorty of MDEC. Hope da MDEC's maintain their bond n i wish them all da best in everythin. Also, kudos to Dillish 4 promisin to give Maria a lil smthg, dats very good.

Its a pleasure apparently this is what happened, Maria suggested to Dillish that they should enter  Big Brother but the delicious didn't take it seriously even though she wanted to enter. So Maria went to fill up the application forms alone and she filled up both forms for herself and Dillish...the auditions came and they went together and that's how they got in...

28 Aug 2013 09:19

Any idea when BBSA is starting Tazz??

28 Aug 2013 09:45

@boogy-babe BBSA will start in January 2014. I will confirm the exact dates for you...Apparently they are going to use the same BBA houses and Production company. So it'll be like BBA, only now with SA contestants...

Something tells me Big Bother is one of the cash cows for dstv, that's why they will be running BBA and BBSA consecutively...

28 Aug 2013 10:07

@Tazz I think its always been like that i.e using the same production company and same studios,the only difference will be the sponsors. I wonder how many housemates will be in there considering we have 9 provinces...khona,will they select according to provinces???... will housemates come in pairs?!? Anyhooooo lets wait for the BBSA advert AND you ofcoz,where we will get all the details..

28 Aug 2013 15:04
