We’ve made it now to our final spotlight article before the start of “Big Brother: Over the Top,” and it is someone in Kryssie Ridolfi who is hopefully going to be entertaining to watch. She’s probably the Paul of this season: She’s alternative, plays in a rock band, and loves to be loud and speak her mind. We’re not sure how that is conducive to playing a great game, but we said the same thing about Mr. Friendship before the start of his season, as well.
Below, we’re going to try our best to analyze Kryssie’s game, but it is challenging given that we don’t even know everything about the format just yet.
Bio – She’s a 31-year old waitress from Schaumburg, Illinois, which is a suburb of Chicago. Judging from a somewhat-popular video that is out there of her, she seems to work in one of those restaurants where you’re deliberately supposed to be mean to people. For the record, we don’t get those — we want our servers to be nice! She’s also in a rock band named Evil Engine, and judging on how she’s got a hyperlink to them in her bio, it feels like promoting them is one of the real reasons she is appearing on this show.
Strengths – She’s very chatty, and we think that there are times in this game where that could be an asset. She’s in a job where she deals with a wide array of people, and we think America will be on her side. With the public controlling so much of this game, we do think the fact that she’s older and outside of the typical casting pool for women will make her popular with many of the feed fans. These aren’t people looking for the typical good-looking southern guy to vote for.
Weaknesses – She references Casey Turner from season 11 while also mentioning Jessie, which leads us to think that season 11 is the only season she’s seen. We do like season 11, but there are other seasons of the show out there! We do worry that she’s a little too different from most of the other players, who seem to be largely from the south and younger. She’s going to stick out like a sore thumb, and could be in danger so long as America doesn’t help her.
Prediction – Unless she shouts out her band constantly, we do think she’s got a chance to go pretty far just because we think feeders will appreciate having her around. She should have fun stories and will be a burst of energy on the feeds.
