Why do you think you were selected to be on BBCAN11?
Because I’m not afraid to be myself and to get a little embarrassing. I love to have fun and bring people together and I feel that’s reflected in my outgoing personality.
What is your strategy going into the house?
My strategy is to make as many friends and allies in the house as possible, have a toe in every pool so to speak. I want to use my humour as a distraction and manipulate from the side lines.
What part of the Big Brother Canada experience do you think will be the hardest for you?
Missing my friends, family and my little sweet kitty. Also, my electric toothbrush!
How do you want people to remember you as a player on BBCAN?
I want people to remember me as a worthy, but kind competitor. Someone who dominated the game but not in a malicious way.
Fill in the Blank:
My biggest pet peeve is: flaky people and egomaniacs.
My happy place is: my bed snuggled with my kitty.
My biggest fear is: ending up alone… or the scary lady from The Ring.
My greatest strength is: my empathy and ability to persevere.
My dream vacation is: backpacking through Southeast Asia or a Lord of the Rings tour of New Zealand.
My most prized possession is: my laptop – I have all my photos stored on it!
My favourite hobby is: scuba diving.
Most spontaneous thing I’ve done is: getting a tattoo on my butt!
If I could only eat one thing in the house, it would be: baby carrots.
A fact about me that surprises people is: I have my scuba dive master certification.
I get along best with people who: are open-minded and don’t take themselves too seriously.
My friends/family would describe me as someone who: cares very deeply about others and probably someone who worries too much.
A personal accomplishment I am most proud of is: starting my post-secondary education seven years after high school and being on Big Brother Canada!
