Three adjectives that describe you: Funny, outgoing and creative.
Favorite Activities: Anything outdoors, skateboarding, drums and making YouTube videos.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: Not being able to talk to family and friends. Not seeing or hearing from them for that amount of time will be really difficult.
Do you have a strategy for winning Big Brother?: Yes, my outer personality will be a perfect cover for the secret competitor that I truly am. I am the funny guy, I’m young and immature which will play to my advantage; but I’m also a marathoner, a former college hockey player and a very smart and creative thinker. I will never throw a competition and I won’t lie about who I am or my life, but I’m willing to backstab people. I will seek an alliance very early on with the guys, and I am not considering a showmance. I know I can win this game with my charm and underlying physical and mental talent.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most: Hayden because he resembles me in just about every way possible. He was the west coast, flippy-haired, chill, attractive dude with the same first name. Also, he played the game very smart and always managed to find the middle ground between not being a floater and not being a super competitive threat.
What are you afraid of: Not living up to other people’s expectations.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of: I moved to California all by myself. Also, I ran a marathon. It’s a toss-up.
Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… To always get my laugh out of it.
What would you take into the house and why: iPod: to listen to music, it would bring me back to reality whenever I feel like I’m going crazy. Guitar: I don’t play, but I assume there’s a lot of free time so maybe I could learn. Camera: unlimited Big Brother selfies to post on Instagram when I go back home.
What would you do if “Big Brother” made you famous: I would exploit my fame for money and success like any other reasonable person would.
Hayden is a Pedi Cab driver who recently moved to Los Angeles without knowing a soul. This self-described “Player” plans on using his “surfer dude” exterior to his advantage while in the Big Brother house.
