What is your strategy going into the house? Enter the house and have great conversations with four or five people before the first HOH – which I want to cream and win! Then if I win, I’ll have the pick of the litter for the season and have a lot of say in how the season plays out. I also want to fool everybody. As a fisherman, I believe people won’t see me as a mastermind manipulator. I want to use that to my advantage, gain trust from the houseguests and get them on my side.
Why do you think you were selected to be on BBCAN8? For starters, no one from P.E.I. has ever played Big Brother Canada so I think that is a big part of it. I’m so excited to be the first person from my island to play! Also, I live a different life than most people being a female lobster fisherman in a male dominated industry. I also work on cruise ships and travel the world, so I think that makes me stand out.
What part of the Big Brother Canada experience do you think will be the hardest for you? If I don’t win!
How do you want people to remember you as a player on BBCAN? As the person who surprised everybody and was able to fool them into thinking I’m one type of person, when I’m much more than that.
If you win Big Brother Canada, how would you spend the cash prize? I just bought a house last year and live alone so I would put a lot of it towards my mortgage and go on a really cool trip.

My biggest pet peeve is: people that shush me.

Most spontaneous thing I’ve done is: when I first got my job on a cruise ship, I had never flown or travelled before. I left on Christmas morning at 6 a.m., so that was pretty spontaneous.

I get along best with people who: are loud and intense like I am.
