Welcome to the continuation of yesterday evening's post and more of my very unscientific snap judgments on the new Big Brother Hamsters! One week from today we're going to see the new Big Brother 12 houseguests in action on our big and small screens. I'm getting more and more excited as the hours pass and I hope you are too. So let's get on with their bios shall we?
Kathy is my pre-season favorite. She is a 40-year-old Deputy Sheriff in Arkansas and is an ovarian cancer survivor. She seems fairly down-to-earth with a little thrill for adventure. I actually don't see anything about her bio that I don't like.
Now some (outside of the house) won't like the fact that she's with law enforcement but I have a feeling that those in the house will be intrigued by it. I just hope that she's not asked too many questions about it because that will only mean one thing (fish or five or whatever the hell else it'll be called this season) on the feeds. I can't see any other things that people could NOT like about her at this point although I'm sure we'll hear the standard hick jokes about her shooting guns and goin' muddin'.
I'm pretty sure that Kathy will find herself in the house mother role rather easily and because of her age and her job she'll probably get along with everybody pretty well. So put me down for Team Kathy!
Scott, one of my fellow bloggers here, is already pretty taken with Kristen. She is a gorgeous young lady and seems to have a decent head on her shoulders according to her bio. I appreciate that she's been on her own (financial and otherwise) since the age of 18. Yeah, she's only 24 but that seems to be more and more abnormal nowadays so good on her! A boutique manager from Philadelphia, Kristen enjoys going to the gym, meditating, and shopping. I find it interesting that Braden (BB11) was her favorite just because of his looks. Something tells me she'd never heard of Big Brother before and was probably cast for the show. What a shocker right? Ha!
Overall, I like Kristen so far and I hope that the word 'like' isn't used too often when she speaks. She's also going to be great eye candy for the guys both in and out of the house.
If Kristen is looking for a romance (or even a showmance), Lane seems like a perfect match for her. An oil rig salesman in Texas, he considers himself funny, outgoing, and athletic. Lane enjoys riding motorcycles, working out, and hanging with his friends. OK, this guy's entire bio should just be put up on any one of the various online dating sites. He sounds like a petty swell guy outside of the house but I wonder how exciting he'll be to watch inside the house.
Oh, and being afraid of electric fences? That's a little weird but understandable I guess.
Matt is another hamster with an almost perfect-sounding bio up. 32 years old, he's a web designer that enjoys playing and writing music, hockey, and annoying people for his own amusement. Matt considers himself intelligent and a sweet-talker who says that while he's in the house it's going to be all about the game. Let's hope he's not one of those that makes up stupid little lies about himself. I can't stand those types!
He's a fan of Will (BB2, All-Stars) and Dan (BB10) and seems to have a little cockiness about himself. I can't try to even guess how exciting he'll be to watch on the feeds but his bio sounds more exciting than Lane's. Not by much though.
Monet seems interesting. She's a 24-year-old model in Illinois who still lives at home with her parents (according to one of the videos from The Early Show). That's something that automatically gets on my nerves - especially when she's referred to as a princess. However, she seems like our typical young beauty put in to have America fall in love with.
She says she's the coolest person you'll ever meet (gag) and considers herself exotic and active. Monet says she's not a fan of "ditsy, stupid girls or guys who think they're all that" but is a fan of Jordan (BB11). Now before all of you Jordan fans get up in arms and storm the comments with pitchforks, I never thought that Jordan considered herself 'all that' but come on, she was a ditz.
Monet's proudest accomplishments are being on 'The Young and the Restless' and having a great drivers license photo. She also says she thinks that Big Brother's had too many trashy bimbos on the show so let's hope she doesn't find herself falling into that role.
Rachel is another hamster that seems like she'll be interesting to watch. A 26-year-old VIP cocktail waitress in Las Vegas and a Chemistry graduate student? Hmmm. She considers herself bubbly and effervescent and everything about her bio says that about her as well.
She says she's going to hustle the hamsters in the house like she does at work (to get them to buy her champagne) and I can see that about her. I think she'll definitely be one of our top schemers this season and I can't wait to see what she does. Will she start scheming too early and burn out or let it simmer. Something tells me this girl is not the simmering type though.
Ragan is a guy I'm just really not sure about. He's a 34-year-old college professor in California who considers himself funny, intelligent, and genuine. His voice got on my nerves like nothing in a long time in the Early Show videos and he seems to be quite exuberant.
His strategy for winning Big Brother is the perfect one as a combination of it has worked in just about every season. Whether he can do it or not is another story. As a gay man, he says he'd rather not live with homophobes (well duh). He also says he'd rather not live with ultra conservatives or 18-23 year-olds. I can understand that since that's the ages of the kids he teaches at school. But isn't that kind of stupid at the same time considering the show he's going on?
I could crack jokes on his silly bow tie but I won't because it wouldn't surprise me if Big Brother made him wear that for his picture. At least I hope so! I think Ragan is going to be quite the hamster to watch. I'm just not sure if it's going to be in a good or bad way. Regardless, I'm sure he'll bring some conversation topics to the table more important than the latest fashion crazy or Twilight movie.
So that's the rest of the hamsters this season! What do you think about them? Do you have any that you like or dislike so far? I can't wait until they get into the house and our pre-season opinions change of them. That's one of my favorite things each season!
