What is your strategy going into the house? It depends on the people in the house. It’s a social game so I want to get a feel for the houseguests first. But ideally I want to form an alliance with three other people who are loyal and who I can rely on.
Why do you think you were selected to be on BBCAN8? I’m a pretty unique person and I was myself. I wasn’t trying to be anybody else, and I think they appreciated that.
What part of the Big Brother Canada experience do you think will be the hardest for you? Not having any privacy and being filmed 24 hours a day with a mic on – it’s jarring and daunting. But I’m willing to take on the challenge!
How do you want people to remember you as a player on BBCAN? As a very smart, cunning, and strong competitor.
If you win Big Brother Canada, how would you spend the cash prize? I’m definitely going on a few trips because I love to travel. I also want to start a business – so I would invest in myself and take a few courses. Oh! and get my driver’s license. [laughs]
