1. Prior to Big Brother, things were rocky between him and his ex-girlfriend.
Austin didn't deny having a girlfriend prior to entering the Big Brother house; however, during his chat with Jeff, he revealed that things weren't going too well for the pair and he should've ended things with her before the show. The romantic wrestler admitted that he never meant to have a showmance, but he took a chance, and ended up falling in love.
"[My ex and I] both knew Big Brother would end things between us and I should have ended it before entering the house," Austin admitted. "If I hadn't opened my heart up to Liz, I know I would have regretted that, too. I hate the circumstances in which that happened, but I followed my heart, and Liz got me through this. I wouldn't have been able to do this without her."
