Sarah plans to watch the live feeds all day

After being evicted from the house last week, Sarah Hrejsa is apparently going through withdrawal. She tells TV Guide that she plans to “have the Internet [feed] on all the time, to keep an eye on what everyone is doing, what James is doing. I just want to know what was going on when I was in the house, and I’ll want to know what goes on now that I’m out of the house.”

Strangely enough, Sarah also identifies April and Maggie as two of her closest friends from the show. She says “April was probably my first friend in the house.” As for Maggie, Sarah says she “was an enemy of mine almost the entire time I was in the house and the night before the eviction we had a heart-to-heart where we both said, ‘It’s just a game.’ We came to an understanding, and I think she’ll be someone who I’ll talk to outside the house. She’s a great girl.”
