Where do I begin with Christie? Let’s just jump right in with her strategy. She plans on using her sexuality as a social advantage by being an openly feminine lesbian. However, because she’s a lesbian, she’s going to pose no threat to the other girls who are trying to hook up with the dudes, and she’s also going to be a shoulder for the girls.
There is so much going on there, so let’s try to break it down. She’s going to somehow be flirty with the guys and/or girls yet be unavailable to the guys because of her sexuality. All this while remaining close with the girls so she can support them if needed. Does she really think the guys are going to fall for a flirty lesbian who shares her sexual stories?? She does, and… well, she’s right! The guys are going to eat that shit up and be putty in her hands. I think that’s a very solid social strategy and may carry her quite a bit into the game.
Christie also claims to be athletic with a photographic memory, so she’s apparently going to turn all that on when needed and cruise to victory? Sure, maybe. I doubt it, but maybe. If her memory is as good as she claims and she is really athletic, she is beginning to sound like a threat and will have to actively work to stifle that persona or she’s going to find herself watching the show with the rest of us.
It sounds like Christie has a fairly solid strategy heading into the house and it’s one she can likely keep up for a bit. The big question will be if she’s able to contain it enough to not appear as a threat but win comps when she needs to. I can see her in the top 8 or one of the first evicted depending on how strong she comes off early on in the game.

Three adjectives that describe you: Outgoing, overachiever, and edgy.
Favorite activities: I love to go to the park with my dog, I like to do basically ANYTHING in nature, specifically waterfall hikes, and I also like to try new food and restaurants with friends.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brotherhouse?
I think for me, the most difficult part would be not being able to talk to whoever is running my store. Obviously, I’ll hate not speaking to my friends and family as well, but by nature I’m a controlling person, so not knowing what’s going on at Mystic will be challenging! Also, no music. I’m such a musical person! I’m the “whistling girl.” I’m always either singing or whistling… so I’m definitely going to miss music!
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most?
I really loved Jeff and Jordan, and I really love the dynamic they had and the game that they played together. Gameplay wise, I think Paul is incredible. I think he was a master at manipulating, and also a competition beast. Do I think he should have toned it down a little bit with the lying and playing everyone in the house? Yes. But I think he was savvy and strong! I also love Dan, but who doesn’t?
Do you have a strategy for winning the game?
Yes! I do! I plan on using my sexuality as a major social advantage. I’m going into the house as the openly feminine lesbian. I will use my femininity and charm to easily persuade and subtly manipulate the men, while also being the emotional shoulder and best friend to all the girls. I also won’t pose as a threat to the women, because I won’t be after any of the men. At the same time, I won’t be a physical or athletic threat to the boys. Little do the guys know though, I am super competitive, and an extreme overachiever and I plan on winning a lot of the competitions! I have a photographic memory and I’m also killer at puzzles!
My life’s motto is…
“If you want it, picture it, write it down, and envision yourself getting it, manifest the sh*t out of it… and it’s yours. Simple.” The power of INTENTION, man!
What would you take into the house and why?
– My dog Beans, first and foremost.
– My iPod with all my favorite music.
– My journal. I journal every day, so that’s tough to part with.
Fun facts about yourself:
– I take a bubble bath like a six-year-old almost every night!
– Anyone I’ve ever dated would say one of their pet peeves about me is that I whistle too much.
– I dated men for 9 years before discovering I don’t like them anymore, LOL.
– I did pageants from age 8-12 and actually took the New York crown against 200+ girls.
– I skeeve dirty feet, so ya better keep those nasty dogs out of my bed!
