ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: First off, did you ever see yourself saying the words, "You are now a Big Brother zombie"? And what kind of reaction did you get in person from Cameron and Jared after you gave them the news they would be heading back into the house and have a chance to reenter the game?
JULIE CHEN MOONVES: I've been waiting 25 seasons to finally say those words! Jared looked like he was about to jump out of his skin. He was so pumped. Cameron was more chill. We quickly whisked them off stage. It takes some time to become a zombie!

Either Cameron or Jared will get another shot in the game. What do each of them need to do differently should they make it back in to avoid being sent right back out again?
They need to make amends, and Jared needs to stop talking so much. Cameron needs to find a way to get in good with anyone willing to buddy up with him and build from there.

Out of Cameron and Jared, which person do you think the Houseguests would rather reenter the game?
I think they would rather Jared. At some point, the remaining Houseguests were tight with him. They can at least see if there's anything to redeem there.
CBS Jared and Cirie Fields on 'Big Brother'
Finally: Earlier in the week, Cirie told Jared to put her on the block if Cameron won the Veto. That didn't end up happening, but did that offer from Cirie surprise you?
Yes. It totally surprised me. It surprised me that she felt confident enough that Jared could do well in the house without her guidance. But then again, he hasn't exactly been taking her advice!
