Three adjectives that describe you: Joker, hilarious, and confident.

Favorite activities: Music, food, and working out or playing sports.

What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house?
I guess missing and not having communication with family.

Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most?
Victor Arroyo! He played every challenge like it was his last and won his way back in multiple times.

Do you have a strategy for winning the game?
Finding a loyal person or two. Use my social game and let my physical gameplay show at the end more than beginning. Don’t let the other Houseguests know I’m a powerhouse from Day 1.

My life’s motto is… 
Everybody dies but not everybody lives. Live every day like it’s your last.

What would you take into the house and why?
– iPod.
– My dog, Cooper.
– Stuffed-crust cheese pizza.

Fun facts about yourself:
– I wet the bed until the age of 10, which helped me be skilled at laundry at an early age.
– I secretly love Taylor Swift. I’ll listen to her while I work out and my favorite line is, “It’s a love story, baby just say yessss.”
– I have a blue-nose pitbull who’s my world and I treat him like my child.
