'Big Brother: All-Stars' evictee Ian Terry talks 'Big Brother' and reveals whether he'll attend Nicole Franzel's wedding

Big Brother: All-Stars evictee Ian Terry has revealed whether he plans to attend Nicole Franzel's wedding although she betrayed him in the game and which All-Star would have been his next target had he stayed in the Big Brother house.
Ian became the first member of Big Brother: All-Stars' jury under Dani Briones' Head of Household reign after his best friend in the house, Nicole -- who originally campaigned for Ian to stay -- voted to evict Ian.
Had Nicole voted for Ian to stay, there would have been a 4-4 tie with Dani responsible for casting the tiebreaker vote.
Nicole, who was also close to Dani in the house, didn't want to put Dani in that position or turn on her The Committee alliance, which had the numbers in the Big Brother house and preferred keeping Tyler around.
"Obviously, I respect the game play, that she was in a larger alliance without me," Ian, 29, toldUs Weekly in a recent video interview.
"Am I curious as to why I wasn't invited into that larger alliance? I mean, yeah. I am definitely a little curious about that."
Ian, however, insisted he has no hard feelings toward Nicole, who got engaged to Big Brother alum Victor Arroyo in Summer 2018.
"I really, really respect that everything that we went through in the last week and I think she's still a great friend," Ian said.
On Nicole's upcoming wedding to Victor, Ian confirmed he "was invited" to the wedding "before the season" began filming.
"Anything that happened in the game has no effect on that, just to make that very clear. It just depends on what my schedule's like. I obviously appreciate the invite. Nothing in the game will affect that."
Ian and Tyler only became eviction nominees last week after Dani's original nominations managed to get saved.
David Alexander used "The Disruptor" power he had won on himself, and Da.Vonne Rogers won the Power of Veto and used its golden power to take Kevin "KC" Campbell off the chopping block.
"Had I stayed and won Head of Household, I would have targeted [Christmas Abbott]," Ian disclosed.
"When I was campaigning, she kind of let me down a little bit because I felt like we had a good relationship. And the fact that she wouldn't give me a vote sort of disappointed me."
Ian therefore reiterated, "Based on where things were going, had I stayed in the house, Christmas would have been my target. She's a good competitor as well, so it seems like a good use of an HOH."
Looking back on his game as a whole, Ian apparently wishes he could have been aligned with other people, with Kaysar Ridha being the "obvious" choice.
"I think everybody, at this point, knows -- I did want to work with Kaysar. The problem is that Kaysar never had power," Ian explained to Us.
"I can't magically flip the entire house to keep Kaysar if he's getting nominated multiple weeks in a row and is the house target. I wanted to work with Kaysar. The stars just never aligned for that to happen."
