We gotta be honest: There’s nobody on “Big Brother: Over the Top” who screams immediately “possible winner of the show.” We’d say the sisters have a good shot, but given that we don’t see Morgan and Alex being able to hide that, the other players will probably target them. Meanwhile, we imagine that people like Cornbread and Monte aren’t going to be that popular with many of the viewers watching at home, and we know they’re going to have a big role to play.
In a way, we’re feeling like we might as well pick Justin Duncan ironically to win this season, mostly because he’s probably the person we’re most interested in seeing on the live feeds and we haven’t really had someone like like him. He’s almost like the combination of a “True Blood” character and Chef Joe from season 14.
Bio – He’s a 27-year old seafood restaurant owner from New Orleans — and we gotta say, there’s nothing more we love than Cajun food! We’d probably keep him around because of that alone. The dude speaks French and apparently loves to sing, which could be awkward for him in the house given that’s not really allowed.
Strengths – We do think he’s fun, interesting, and a little bit odd. It’s a good thing that Jozea’s probably not in the house this season thanks to the vote, since we do think there are some personality clashes that would prove rather troublesome. He wants to cook a lot for the other players, which could prove useful provided he’s not burning through all the food. He’s probably not going to be perceived as a major threat and we don’t see America hating him more than the other guys who are there.
Weaknesses – If this was a standard season, we’d be a little more worried about the fact that it feels almost like a producer just found him selling seafood and cast him on the show right away. He’s completely clueless, but he may be able to figure it out since Paul seemed to over the course of this past season. He also may need to tone his personality down here or there if he realizes it is starting to irritate other people.
Prediction – As we said, we want to pick Justin to win just because he’s interesting — but in reality we’re probably going to say Jason Roy just because America already likes him and they’ve got a key role to play this season. With the current cast and the structure of the game being what it is, we do think that he’s one of those people who will either be out week 1 or go very far.
