The Big Brother cast of season 19 has just been released and the show premieres in just over a week on June 28. Before you begin watching, of course you will want to know as much as you can about each cast member! Check out these fun facts about each member of this very eclectic cast!
As if her name wasn’t fun enough, Alex is full of interesting facts! She has had plastic surgery five times, but only one of which was done by choice, breast implants. She also sews, crochets and knits all sorts of things, including bikinis and blankets. Apparently, too, she has a knack for winning money of slot machines. Makes me wonder if she will be winning the big bucks on Big Brother!
This guy has to be wicked smart as a microbiologist. If that isn’t cool enough, Cameron is one of the best Halo Wars players in the world, at one point ranking #32 in the world! He has also biked 600 miles in a matter of 10 days. I bet that will come in handy during those physical challenges!
If simply her name wasn’t awesome enough, these fun facts about Christmas are incredibly amusing. She “enjoys being creepy” and is a CrossFit Games athlete (something actually on my bucket list). She has released two books, one of which was a best-seller AND was the first female in the NASCAR Sprint Cup pit crew member.
Cody not only looks the part of a surfer but actually is one! He also has a long list of “nevers” including never worn cologne, never worn a suit, never been offended, and never taken a selfie, which is actually quite refreshing! Cody seems pretty cool!
This doll is a government engineer and is just as sweet as she looks. Dominique is a Christian who continues to seek and learn and love. I also really appreciate her explanation of being a “seasonal fitness freak” saying “I NEVER, EVER turn down a free meal.” I’m right there with you, Dominique!
I find Elena’s quote to live by very amusing: “Don’t go anywhere without beer koozies and a phone charger.” There is some truth to that, isn’t there? She is a radio personality (super cool) and enjoys shaking her booty.
JASON IS A RODEO CLOWN. Yes, you read that right! Typing that made me giggle and I love it. I think he will be extremely refreshing on the show and I am excited for his story-telling which he says are extraordinary and infectious.
Jessica loves travel and has actually lived in 8 different states. Wow! She is also a VIP concierge and loves making people laugh- pretty cool if you ask me!
Jillian Parker is a Timeshare sales representative so she is actually used to being on television quite a bit! Fun facts about her include that she has swam in a bioluminescent bay in Puerto Rico (bucket list, check!) and met Aaron Carter. I’m a little bit jealous, it’s true.
Josh is in haircare sales so I’m sure the lady houseguests are just going to LOVE him. He also is a self proclaimed adrenaline junkie, so I can certainly see this being a huge benefit to him during some of those more difficult challenges!
Kevin is 55 and a stay-at-home dad of seven kids, which I find pretty interesting but there is MORE. Kevin was Mr. Massachusetts in 1985, he was on The Geraldo Rivera Show and won a hunk contest. He was the dunk champion for the city of Boston in 1981, wow! Despite all of these awesome accomplishments, Kevin stays humble, praying with the Rosary and journaling. I have a feeling he will be a fan favorite!
Mark is a personal trainer a body builder. Nice! He also played Division 1 football and went to an NFL regional combine. Don’t be fooled into thinking he’s all brawn and no brain, Mark is an amazing chess player and loves it!
Matthew has been naked in the Planet Hollywood Las Vegas hotel lobby (would love to hear this story some time) and is “seriously the only person who really took 21 shots on their 21st birthday.” He also looks like Brett Favre, in my opinion.
Megan is a dog walker who can swear in five different languages, including Bosnian, German, French, Spanish, and English. She has also seen every episode of South Park and is in the process of getting her racing license so she can do rallycross.
Ramses is the youngest player at 21 and is a Cosplay artist. He loves drinking wine and pampering himself with face masks (he really does have nice skin!) while wearing his kangaroo onesie pajamas. He is also a Big Brother superfan and is from the Dominican Republic. I love it!
This has to be a favorite of mine: Raven is the leader of an all-female ghost hunting group. What!? I’d love to talk with her and learn more about this super unique hobby. I wonder if her ghost hunting skills will come in handy during the show…
Okay, is anyone else super pumped for the Big Brother season to begin now?! I know I am. It will be super interesting to see all these personalities in a house together! The season premieres next Wednesday, June 18 at 8/7 Central Time.
