Cory Wurtenberger On Big Brother 25
Cory despite being the youngest has some training when it comes to being strategic. He said this and a lot more in his pregame interview. In an expose from ET Canada, Cory describes himself as a “social butterfly.” Cory then described his “straightforward” strategy. He said he is going to play the game by lowering his threat level as much as he can. He said he will try to win the first HOH and if that does not happen, he will be entering full “I’m a child. Help. Lead me. What do I do? Where do I go? I don’t know how to do laundry. Do you know how to fold a shirt?” So, what did actually happen once he was on Big Brother 25?
On the Season 25 premiere, Cory was introduced along with three other competitors to play the “Hold On Fright” game. They were made to hold on tight while grotesque monster hands tried to drag them into the “Nether Region”. The person dragged in first was put up for potential eviction, and was also made to disappear from the rest of the house. The host of the show was also seen teasing that the loser would be gone for the rest of the episode.
Cory was immediately dragged behind a dark curtain and was actually gone for the rest of the episode, presumably banished to the Nether Region. Yet, shortly after the episode aired, Cory posted a story on social media stating that he “escaped the Nether Region”.
