Chad Michael "Cornbread" Ligon[2] was a HouseGuest on Big Brother: Over The Top.

Starting off the season, Cornbread joined the Boys Alliance on the first night. Though he was declared safe from the current HOH's nominations, he was later revealed to be America's Nominee. After losing the veto, he attempted to lay low. However, because of his annoying habits and words spoken the house flipped and he was evicted in a 9-1-0 vote.

Do you have a strategy for winning the game? Go with the flow, make plenty of friends, be strong in competitions.
Which Big Brother Houseguests do you like the most and least? Donny Thompson from Season 16. He’s just a good ole boy. He’s funny and outgoing and he’s real. Least favorite is Devin Shepherd because he was deceitful. He changed like the wind and lied a lot. Basically, I don’t like people who are arrogant.
What would you take into the house, and why? I don’t really have an answer for this question. I don’t really need anything but myself.
Fun facts about yourself:
1. I’m a three-time Redneck Olympic champ.
2. I’m a very good problem-solver. When something’s broke, I can fix it with whatever’s laying around.
3. I have over 3,000 friends on Facebook and I use it as a way to get laughs.
4. I am the president of a canoe club.
5. I have little videos I make called “Cornbread’s Redneck Mobile News” on YouTube.
