A huge thank you to all the monsters and all the makers who took part in Monster Big Brother 2009.

It has been a lot of fun to write and hopefully it has been entertaining to read.

Hector's Eviction Interview

Monstrochaussette, Hector is the winner of Monster Big Brother 2009. After a triumphant exit from the house yesterday, Hector spoke to Duleea McChen:

DM: Ladies and Gentlemonsters, the winner of Monster Big's Hector!!!!!
H: Merci, merci beaucoup, thank you all
DM: Hector. Did you ever think you would win Monster Big Brother?
H: I thought there was a chance, but I did not think about it. It was my intention to have good times in the house and I think that is most important.
DM: It certainly seems to have worked for you. How did you manage to stay so calm, it seemed as though you never lost your temper?
H: This is not true, I was angry with Ganymede during the hug task, for which I am sorry.
DM: And you did upset some housemates
H: But I always am sorry, I never mean to be upsetting, I did not understand about Cthulhu and the tentacles, but now I do.
DM: Awww, I'm sure he doesn't mind really. So what do you think you will do now?
H: I intend to return to France and otherwise I have made no plans.
DM: Is there anything you'd like to say to all your fans?
H: Yes, thank you very much, you are all my friends and thank you to all my housemates who have made this so much fun. You are the best.
DM: Actually, Hector, you are the best. You've been an international sock monster of mystery and a fantastic winner. Thank you.

Ganymede's Eviction Interview

Ganymede was the penultimate monster to be evicted from the Monster Big Brother house. He spoke to Duleea McChen as soon as he left the house:

DM: Ladies and Gentlemonsters, it's Ganymede!
G: Hello, good afternoon everyone.
DM: Ganymede, it's great to see you, you're so fluffy in person! Do you think your housemates understood how fluffy you are?
G: Good question Duleea. The Monster Big Brother house is an alien environment for me, I'm usually quite a shy monster. My social skills are not great.
DM: You had a bit of a bad start
G: I did, I suppose I fell into a bad crowd with Morris. But being up early in the morning with Kelvin helped me to put some perspective on that.
DM: You must have done something right, you came so close to winning!
G: I know, it's very perplexing.
DM: What was going through your head just now when you and Hector were waiting to hear who had won Monster Big Brother?
G: Everything from the last 25 days, everything. It's an extraordinary amount of pressure.
DM: What was your favourite moment in the Monster Big Brother house?
G: When Marvin thought the house had been moved in to space. What a leap of imagination! There were so many great monsters, with so many great skills, it makes me proud to be handmade.
DM: We're proud of you too Ganymede, you've been an early morning philosopher and a great housemate. Thank you.
G: Thank you Duleea.

Terrence's Eviction Interview

After a triumphant exit from the Monster Big Brother house yesterday Terrence joined Duleea McChen for a chat about his time in the house.

DM: Ladies and Gentlemonsters it's Terrence
T: Woooo! Hello!
DM: That was quite a reaction from the crowd.
T: Wasn't it? I'm so surprised.
DM: Well you shouldn't be, you've made quite an impression out here, you have plenty of monster fans. Did you have fun in the Monster Big Brother house Terrence?
T: I certainly did. It's quite an experience and I've learned a lot about myself and about the way I deal with other people. I'm very glad I did it.
DM: Any regrets?
T: No, not ever.
DM: Not even that you didn't steal any socks
T: (laughs) No I didn't in the end. Funny though because I think someone else was stealing shoes.
DM: Nothing gets past you does it Terrence? It was Morris and I'll tell you all about it later. What was your favourite part of being in the Monster Big Brother house?
T: Meeting all the other monsters, what a great group of creatures.
DM: Well, I won't delay you any longer Terrence, I know that Maisy is waiting for you in the green room. Thank you Terrence, you've been a brilliant monster housemate.
T: Thank you for having me

Kelvin's Eviction Interview

Kelvin was the third most popular Monster Big Brother housemate this year, he spoke to Duleea McChen as soon as he came out of the house yesterday.

DM: Ladies and Gentlemonsters, it's Kelvin! (pauses for applause) OK Kelvin I know you're desperate to know about Morris and it's been awful watching you struggle through the last week without knowing what happened. So I'll just sum up for you.
K: Yes please
DM: As you know Morris is a Sock Brownie with a speciality in magical cobbling and not a miserable old sock monster at all. Well now everyone knows, Morris' magical powers have disappeared and he's looking forward to living a more normal and cheerful life. Oh and he fixed my shoes. Genius!
K: Wow, er...I thought his secret identity needed to be protected, I had no idea he wanted a normal life, imagine deciding that in front of an international readership of millions.
DM: And there you go again, Kelvin, thinking about other people first. Aren't you in the least bit annoyed that you got dragged in to this. You had to lie for him.
K: It was my fault, if I hadn't seen what was in his shed at home I would never have known. Plus I was lying to protect his magic and all the good it does for people, as well as him.
DM: You really are just as sweet in person as you are on the blog. OK, moving on...Swannie, she's nice isn't she?
K: Yes she's very nice.
DM: Do you think you'll see her again, now you've left the house?
K: I hope so. I really do.
DM: Awww. So Kelvin what was your favourite moment in the Monster Big Brother house?
K: Playing cards with Swannie on that night when she was really upset. I felt like I was helping her out.
DM: Thank you Kelvin, you've been a super softie special monster housemate.

Swannie's Eviction Interview

Swannie was the first of the final five monster housemates to be evicted yesterday. She spoke to Duleea McChen straight out of the house.

DM: Ladies and Gentlemonsters, it's Swannie
S: Hello, hello everyone
DM: So what was it like being the only girl monster in there for the last week.
S: I didn't notice actually, I was still having so much fun.
DM: You weren't having too much fun earlier in the week. You seemed quite upset.
S: Yes, I really missed Mabel and Madeline after they were evicted
DM: Are you sure you weren't upset about Hector?
S: No, I don't know what you mean
DM: OK, moving on. We noticed that you've got closer to Kelvin in the last few days. He's nice isn't he?
S: He's lovely, so helpful and kind.
DM: Do you fancy him?
S: Duleea! I'm not going to talk about that.
DM: Oh alright then. What was your favourite part of being in the Monster Big Brother house
S: The Karaoke Party, it was brilliant fun and we really felt like a proper house full of friends that night.
DM: Aww. You've been a beautiful girlie pink monster housemate. Thank you.
S: Thank you Duleea.
