Why do you think you were selected to be on BBCAN11?

Because when you need someone who’s smart, charming and athletic, and will get the job done, YOU CALL TY! I’d like to think I’m decent looking too 

What is your strategy going into the house?

Don’t be first, don’t be last. But once my cover has been blown as a physical player, dominate and pick up the outcasts as allies. Maybe even get into a showmance to make people think I’m distracted.

What part of the Big Brother Canada experience do you think will be the hardest for you?

Not being able to tell my mom, “good morning, I love you and have a great day.”

How do you want people to remember you as a player on BBCAN?

I want to be remembered as the player who said he was going to do something and did it. A man of his word – whether good or bad.
