The music producer, who branded Aaron as a "massive gameplayer" following his exit tonight, argued that only Jem Palmer would be able to dent his popularity with the public.
"Aaron beat me, [I] hold my hands up, and now this house is his," he told Emma Willis on Big Brother's Bit on the Side. "Jem, she might try and stop him, but it's over. He's fooled everyone, Aaron's won."
Anton also brushed off suggestions that Aaron had garnered the "womaniser" role he coveted, arguing that the 30-year-old's conquests of Faye Palmer and Maisy James were "not a hard feat".
On why he neglected to nominate Aaron this week, Anton explained: "I was playing a game. I didn't want to be up against him because he was too popular on the outside.
"I wanted to go up against him next week, I was ready next week, I was lining him up. He would have just destroyed me [this week]."
He added: "[Aaron] outsmarted me. I underestimated him, I think he'll go down as a Big Brother legend."
