Three adjectives that describe you: Complicated, balanced and confident
Why did you want to be on Big Brother Canada?
I’ve always liked the show and really got into it once I saw Dr. Will on the American version. Dr. Will is my role model – this guy’s dope. Watching him compete so masterfully in season two inspired me to pursue a career in social psychology. I love getting into people’s minds – this is where I should be.
Do you have a strategy going into the house?
I don’t want to be perceived as a threat – I want to fly under the radar – but that’s just not me. So, who knows? I want to find one person that I’ll be entirely loyal to, probably one of the dumb people in the house because they’re more bound by loyalty and honour – creative and intelligent people can’t be trusted.
Will you hide anything about yourself from the other houseguests?
Nothing. I won’t have as much fun if I’m hiding anything.
Do you think that the physical or mental challenges will be more difficult for you?
Neither will be difficult for me. I’ve watched the show and there really isn’t a challenge I’ve seen that I wouldn’t excel at.
Describe your perfect day.
I’d go to the gym and then head to school to meet with my profs. We would have had a manuscript published so we’d be celebrating. We’d talk about research and then I’d play poker with some grad students and faculty. I’d win, so with $90 in my pocket, I’d call up a few buddies, we’d play Halo at my house and drink. Then we’d call on a few ladies and head to the bar for a night of drinking. Then I’d go home to sleep – the ladies can come, too.
What’s your biggest pet peeve?
Snoring – get a nasal strip, man. There’s no excuse. Seriously, I will turn on people if they snore.
