What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house?
Lack of privacy. I actually enjoy a lot of alone time and I don't believe I will get that in the house.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most?
Helen Kim from Season 15! She was smart, knew how to work the people in the house, and people knew they needed her.
Do you have a strategy for winning the game?
Use my ability to read personalities and know what people need emotionally, so I can almost be a mentor.
I will also stay under the radar as a threat or drama queen. The physical and mental games are the easy parts.
My life's motto is… Every day you wake up with the opportunity to change your life.
What would you take into the house, and why?
