Get To Know Hira Deol
Name: Hira Deol
Hometown: Brampton, Ontario
Relationship Status: Married
What is your strategy going into the house? At the start of the game, I want to gain trust from as many people as possible and rely on my social skills. I want to get to know everybody on a personal level and be a listening board. Then, as the game progresses, I’ll rely on my physical and competitive skills to take myself further.
Why do you think you were selected to be on BBCAN8? As the first turban-wearing Sikh houseguest, I believe I represent one of the many different sides of Canadian multiculturalism. I’m also a big fan of the show and can be very competitive.
What part of the Big Brother Canada experience do you think will be the hardest for you? I’m going to miss my wife and my two-year-old daughter – I’m going to miss them to pieces! Being detached from the outside world and disconnected from my family will be hard.
How do you want people to remember you as a player on BBCAN? As one of the best players in Big Brother Canada history who played an honest and integral game. I also want to be someone that had a hand in many decisions and be that wing-person to the HOH.
If you win Big Brother Canada, how would you spend the cash prize? I would save and invest it in my family and give back by contributing to a charity.
