We’re in the midst of spotlighting many houseguests for the upcoming season of “Big Brother Canada” this week, and we’ve got for you now a first look at someone in Kelsey Faith who does stand out somewhat in the crowd of the people taking part this season. She openly admits to not really knowing much about the show, which is something that many people are brave to do (likely in fear of drawing “ugghs” from fans); while this may hurt her in terms of game knowledge, she also does have a very social job that suggests that she could be good at the making-friends portion of the game.
Will that be enough? We got a chance to speak with her briefly this week, and have at least a few impressions as to who she is as a person and potential player.
Tell us about yourself: Your name, where you’re from, your age, and what you do for a living.
My name is Kelsey Faith, I’m 25 years old, I’m from Calgary, Alberta, and I’m a flight attendant.
What made you want to try out for Big Brother Canada this year?
I really have been looking for the adventure aspect of it. I saw it as something completely different and a unique experience, so I wanted to go step out of my comfort zone and try something different.
So what’s your knowledge base? Are you a big fan of the show?
No, actually. Pretty much the opposite. I’m not one of the people who is a super-fan and knows every season; I pretty much know the smallest amount. (Laughs.) I’ve watched a few episodes of the first season.
What’s something about you that would surprise people?
I think that people may be surprised in general about my physical game. People may underestimate me about that a little bit, just because I’m like a little blonde girl. People will likely stereotype me like that at the very beginning, and then be surprised at how physical I can be.
Do you have a specific strategy entering the house?
My strategy since I’m not really a super-fan and haven’t analyzed everything is to just go in, take everything in, and have fun with it. I think I’m going to work hard on my social game and try to make some really good friends, and I’m going to kick butt at some challenges.
What makes you think that you’ll be able to make it all the way to the end and win?
I think because of my positive energy. I think people will want to keep me in the house because I’m fun and I think people are going to like me. I’m going to work the social game a little bit.
What do you think your biggest weakness could be?
In my everyday life, I don’t like to lie or surround myself with people that are like that. I get that it’s a game, but that’s going to be hard for me to wrap my head around [being deceitful].
Other than winning the money, what’s the one thing you’re hoping to get out of this experience?
Just the whole experience in general. I get to take a break from my life and come out here for a while and meet some awesome people. It’s been crazy so far, so I’m excited for the rest of it.
In closing, what do you want to say to Canada? Why should they be excited to see you this season?
I just want to say to Canada that they should be excited to see me because of my positive energy and happy personality. I think they’ll be excited to see me in that way a lot. I’m going to have a lot of fun with it.
Overall impression – Kelsey probably will go far this season, but we don’t get the sense that she can win. Jon Pardy is a great example of how people can win this show without having seen it, but we don’t get the sense that she has the same zeal and charisma that he did, or the willingness to think strategically when she needs to.
