How would close friends and family describe you?: Athletic,Funny,Positive,Joyful, Disciplined, Competitive and Empathetic
What is your strategy going into the game? For starters, I'm going to be very genuine, kind, and make a connection with every single person in the house. I'll position myself as this happy go lucky person just excited to be there! Next, I'm going to identify my ride or die and present that deal to them. I will ensure that this ride or die, however, has a bigger target on their back in the house. That way if shit hits the fan, they'll go first while I figure out damage control. I'll also let the inevitable larger alliance fall into place as I vote with the house while the numbers are still high. For the rest of the game, my biggest strategy is to be loyal and flexible. You never know when something might change and so being able to pivot my strategy will be crucial!! In terms of games, I'll want to win when necessary but not out myself as a competition beast. I work in marketing and so I pitch myself to clients every week. If I get in a sticky situation or am on the edge of being voted out, I'll use this skill to schmooze my way back in. Beyond that, I'd hope that my strong friendships and friendly personality take me to the end!.
What type of personalities would you describe as opposite of yours? I'd say people who are rude, LAZY, unmotivated, ignorant, mean spirited and overall just a debby downer.
Favorite Sequester player: I LOVED Ceejae from Season 2!! To be honest she was just very entertaining to watch but she was also a smart player. She made an alliance with some strong players early on and won competitions when she needed it. It was unlucky how she went out during the final 4 but overall I thought she was a great player and could've easily won if the conversation went another way!
What would you say your biggest weakness is in a game like Sequester? My biggest weakness would definitely be that I always try to see the best side of people! This could get me into trouble in Sequester since people aren't always truthful and could easily backstab me. Going in I will need to make sure that I am conscious of this and remain skeptical no matter how convincing they may seem.
What do you think is the most common mistake that people make in a game like this? The JURY!!! These are the people who are voting for the winner and it blows my mind how many times people get into a last minute screaming match or make a side comment to them as they leave like WHAT!? I would make sure that I'm managing my relationships with all of the people leaving. Even if I vote them out, I'd try to make sure I make amends before they are gone to get them on my side (or maybe stir up trouble with them and some bigger players) ;)
