Fun Interesting facts:
• I was a collegiate mascot for TCU
• I am weirdly flexible and can touch my head with my foot in various positions (this sounds so sexual but not meant to be)
•I sing a mad rendition of 'Love on Top' by Beyoncé (I act like I can sing really well and definitely don't but I roll with it and have a good time)you don’t take”
How would close friends and family describe you?: COMPETITIVE, passionate, caring, hardworking, and outgoing
What is your strategy going into the game? I honestly have zero clue. I feel like if I go in with this huge strategy then it's going to be completely shaken up once the game actually starts. What I would like to do is find 2 or 3 close allies who are going to have my back no matter what. If I can find those few people who will absolutely tell me what's going on and if my name is being thrown around then I will be in good shape for the game. I would definitely be going in with the "anybody but me" attitude because there can only be one winner. Friends are for after the game. I want to use my social abilities to maneuver around and make everyone think I'm this sweet guy who is their best friend, but in reality I have zero problem stabbing them in the back and holding their hand while I do it. I don't want to come across as a challenge beast, but I know I can win a battle match. Hopefully my social skills will be able to keep me away from battles matches, but if I have to battle then I will. You never know what is going to happen in Sequester so it's really hard to say exactly what I'd do until I see the people I'm up against and hear the twist for the season. What type of personalities would you describe as opposite of yours? Someone who is fearful, trusting, loyal (to a fault), comfortable, impartial
Favorite Sequester player: Honestly, I wasn't a fan of Jake (S2) at first but as the season aired I became a fan of him. I saw so much of myself in him. Once he was put at the bottom, he continued to fight his ass off in battle matches and socially. Nobody really gave him a chance once he was on the bottom but he never stopped fighting. He did anything to survive and that's really how I see my game turning out to be. I could totally see people throwing me into battles matches and then trying anything to keep me in matches, but I'd hope that I would be able to shake up the game to put myself in a better position.
What would you say your biggest weakness is in a game like Sequester? My biggest weakness would be recovering after something doesn't go my way. I am such a perfectionist in my daily life and if something doesn't go like I want it to, then it bothers me until it's right. Playing season 3, I would need to make sure to bite my tongue when it's appropriate and not freak out when a vote doesn't go like I planned or if my name is thrown out by someone. I just need to put on my "big boy pants" and go to work given the situation.
What do you think is the most common mistake that people make in a game like this? I believe that a lot of people open up their mouth when it's not necessary and it's bites them in the ass. If you're caught in a lie then the people who you are actually with may not trust you anymore due to what you're telling others. Also, people wait too long to take their shot at someone who they want out and the other eliminates them first. In a game like Sequester you can't be afraid to make big moves or to be put in a battle match. You should be ready for whatever's to come at all times.
