Favorite Activities: Weightlifting, videography and video editing, boating with friends, going to the dog park with my dogs Jeter and Piper, and going to Siesta Key beach to watch the sunset.
Who are your favorite Houseguests duos? Those who became best friends in the Big Brother house or had a showmance?
My favorite house guest duo is 100% Jessica and Cody from Season 19. Jessica is my all-time favorite player on Big Brother because she played her own game not Paul’s game like the rest of the house. I think if Paul didn’t have that secret power, she and Cody would have gone far in the game. She stood up for herself and Cody and I can relate because I always say what’s on my mind and I always get myself involved in situations where people mess with any of my close friends and/or family members.
What is your favorite past moment on Big Brother?
My favorite past moment on Big Brother was on season 11, the first season I ever watched, when Jeff used his secret power to put Jessie and Natalie on the block. I loved that the power shifted to him and Jordan.
What is your strategy for winning the game?
My strategy for winning the game is to win the very first HOH. I think the first HOH is the most important one. I would then be able to align myself with powerful physical and mental players, but I’d also try to make a final 2 alliance with someone outside of that. That way I can see the game from all angles. I think my social game is what will help me the most. I am very out-going, understanding and comforting. Houseguests will want to talk to me about their thoughts on other house guests and I will use that to my advantage by having a lot of people trust me. I won’t speak my mind too much on weeks that I am not HOH but put ideas in their head to get rid of certain people I think would hurt my game. Just like Tyler played on season 20.
My life’s motto is: “Invest your energy in things you can control.”
What would you take into the house and why:
- My dogs Piper & Jeter because just thinking about leaving them for 3 months makes me want to cry.
- My best friend because we talk and are with each other 24-7. I tried to see if she can fit in my suitcase, but there isn’t enough room.
- A DVD of all the seasons of The Office. Other than Big Brother, The Office is my favorite show. I have re-watched the show 5 times so why not make it 6.
