Getting along with all the different personalities and backgrounds. I think I’ll be able to adjust to changes in the elements (i.e. schedule change, temperature change, etc.), but the human interactions are what make me the most nervous. What moment in your career do you think prepared you to live in the BIG BROTHER house? The fact that I have lived in the Olympic training center has prepared me to be around different personalities from all over. Experience in the Olympic village with people from all different cultures with different interests all trying to live in harmony and also compete at your most stressful competition at the same time. Which past BIG BROTHER cast member did you like most? I loved watching Ross compete. I think Ross and Omarosa were the most entertaining cast members. Do you have a strategy for winning the game? My strategy will continue to evolve as I continue to understand more about the game and the players. Whenever you go into a race, you can calculate all you want but the races always change depending on the environment and who you are competing against. I will try to be as fluid as I can and be calm and not easily offended. My life’s motto is… Keep trying. When all odds are stacked against me, I just keep going and keep pushing myself no matter how hard it gets. What would you take into the house and why?
