Bridgette Dunning joins the Big Brother 18 cast of Houseguests with a lot of strategy as she gets ready to head inside and build a team to reach the finale night.
Bridgette is a traveling nurse who enjoys yoga, fitness, baking, and hanging out with friends. That last part is what she expects to be her biggest challenge in going away for the summer as Bridgette loves to talk with friends and isn’t anxious to be cut off from them for several months.
Looking back over the seasons Bridgette most enjoyed Johnny Mac last year because of he was “hilarious and seemed like a very fun guy to hang out with. He was smart, but hid that pretty well.” Could that be hinting at what we’ll see from her personality type?
As for winning Big Brother 18, Bridget has clearly thought this out for a long time so maybe we’ve got a real Big Brother fan here. She says the cornerstone to her approach will be that people tend to underestimate her since she looks young, can be gullible and oblivious, and also goofy and playful. Bridgette hopes that lets the other cast members underestimate her along the way.
Alliances are going to stay tight and small for Bridgette with a three person team including an athletic player to cover those comps plus a minion that she can manipulate to the end. She is looking to hold the secrets close to her chest but then “spread small bits of doubt and leak rumors… Plus, I’m super cute and awesome, so who wouldn’t want to pick me as the winner anyway?”
