Three adjectives that describe you: Multifaceted, charming, and charismatic.

Favorite activities: Making, building and creating things, fishing, swimming, kayaking, and dancing.

What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house?
Using the bathroom.

Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most?
Daniele Donato. She’s a smart girl who happens to be pretty, not a pretty girl who happens to be smart.

Do you have a strategy for winning the game?
I think I’m starting off with many natural advantages. My personality is perfectly suited for this social experiment.

My strategy is to draw on my experience working in small-town restaurants. I’ll come in and genuinely be myself and just lay low until I have an exact reading on everyone.

I’m extremely perceptive and intuitive, a master of the “mirror” technique. I create a connection and genuine sense of security. As a hairdresser and bartender, I am an excellent listener. People just want to tell me everything for some reason, and I have a steel-trap memory. I don’t forget.

I will “lay low,” at first, and just have fun!

As far as the competitions, I will do what I can to throw them but I want first HOH. I’m a natural leader and I want to establish myself as such and, from there, influence the other Houseguests by means of gentle persuasion and manipulation, which is another terrible talent of mine.

I will more than likely find several alliances but pick just one to take with me, and I will inevitably have to abuse them in some way to hide our bond from others.

As the game progresses, I will have to keep making decisions on the fly, so I can’t say exactly how I’m going to win, just that I am going to win.

My life’s motto is… 
Never give up.

What would you take into the house and why?
– My rooster, Pooch. He is my cuddle buddy.
– My wood burner and some wood. It’s a hobby of mine and it’s relaxing.
– A picture of my family and loved ones because I’m going to miss my people.

Fun facts about yourself:
– I used to be a hair stylist before becoming a welder fabricator.
– I raised honeybees.
– I catch critters, like snakes and racoons, with my bare hands.
