Guy: Thoughts After Leaving the House

What expectations did you have about entering Manor House?
I expected that it would be a challenge but I also thought it would be fun.

Do you think that taking part has changed you?
I think it has because I used to play on my electronic things all the time and this has taught me how to have fun without game boys and other stuff.

Has anyone said that you have changed since you have returned to the 21st Century?
Yes I've grown up a lot.

What do you feel you've learnt?
That life without computers sucks!

Have you remained friends or stayed in contact with anyone from the household? Why?
Yes Edgar came to our house and I wish to keep in touch to all my friends back there.

What did you enjoy most?
Mostly I enjoyed having my pony Tony

What did you like least?
I missed my friends back home.

What did you find the hardest aspect of the role you assumed?
I found the etiquette very hard to keep to.

What did you miss most from the 21st century? Did you ever give in to temptation?
My game boy. - No.

Do you think that the 21st century can learn anything from the Edwardian era?
No I like it as it is because otherwise it would not be the 21st century, it would be the 21st/Edwardian century.

Any other stories you want to tell?
When I fell off Tony because of a plane flying over
