The fitness trainer, who beat Shievonne Robinson in last week's public vote, has been revelling in his surprise victory.
Speaking in the Diary Room, Conor told Big Brother: "I'm feeling good, saved by the public feels good!
"I'm hoping I have a good following. For me personally seeing Deana's face when I was saved was priceless, I'll be a happy man if she goes before me."
Big Brother attempted to bring Deana and Conor closer together this weekend by punishing them for discussing nominations and forcing them to wash dirty laundry together.
However, Conor refused to engage Deana in conversation while washing.
"I haven't done anything to you to make you say you hate me. You are just a nasty man, that's what you are," said Deana.
Conor replied: "Yes, 100%."
Later, he told Sara McLean: "I don't trust Deana, she's talking s**t about me. If I say something around her I don't know where it's going to go."
Big Brother continues daily on Channel 5.
