From his bio, Mark probably won’t be the most entertaining player this season on Big Brother, but we can probably expect him to do well in competitions. As for his chances at the next big BB showmance, we’ll have to see.

Three adjectives that describe you: Fun, strong and thoughtful

Favorite Activities: Lifting weights, hiking, watching movies and relaxing on a beach.

What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: Seeing the same people every day but I’ve been through a similar experience studying abroad.

Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most: Brendon. He basically said “it’s me and my girl vs. the house, let’s go.”
