When we were first learning about the cast for Big Brother Canada 5, we’ll be the first to admit that we were shocked to hear the name Dallas Cormier said to us as someone we’d be speaking to. No offense to the season 4 alum, but he was a fairly early exit, and someone who was mostly known for being belligerent with Tim Dormer over the gummy koalas. He did become somewhat popular around the time that he left the game, so that may be in part one of the reasons why he’s back. Also, Dallas is going to stir the pot, and that seemed to be something that producers were going for with many of their players.
So how is he planning to win the money this time around? Take a look at our exclusive Dallas Cormier pre-game interview below!
CarterMatt – What made you want to come back and do this again?
Dallas Cormier – Honestly man, I didn’t feel like I got to play as much as I wanted to the last time around. I feel like I didn’t reach my potential, and there was a lot more I wanted to show to Canada. When I was asked to play again, I didn’t really have to think about it. 100%, right on the spot.
What was the biggest thing you learned about yourself from the first time you played?
Maybe I’m a little too trusting at the beginning. Last time maybe I aligned myself too much with people who didn’t have my back; this time around I think I’ll definitely take some time to get to know the people. Maddy and Ramsey sold me down the river last year, and they had my 100% loyalty. They kind of burned my a– a little bit. This time around I’ll be a little more cautious about who I’m going to pick for my team.
How are you going to change your strategy from the first time?
I’m definitely going to play a lot more cool, calm, and collected, you know? I got a little high-strung last year and I flew off the handle. Big Brother is a patient man’s game, so I’m a lot mentally stronger, I feel better physically. I think this time around you’re going to see a much better Dallas Cormier.
Even though people saw your game the first time, do you think you’ll still be able to surprise people in any way?
I do! Just because they saw my game the first time around, there weren’t too many flaws. I’m very honest, I’m very loyal, I’m very truthful. If anyone wants that in an alliance, that’s more of a pro than a con.
One other thing that you can say is that I don’t know every player from every season. I may be able to play a little dumb in certain situations.
What do you think your biggest weakness could be this time?
As much as I hate to say it, it could be over-trusting. I had some trust issues from last year. Maybe I’ll get fooled again, but I’m really going to need to have my guard up this time around. A lot of people have a lot of hidden agendas in that house. They can tell you one thing, but they may have a whole another thing up their sleeve.
I also can’t be too emotionally attached to anybody, because at the end of the day, there’s only one winner, right?
Is there anything that you’re nervous about entering the house?
No, I’m not nervous! I’m excited. If it was my first time around I’d be a lot more nervous, but since I am fortune enough to have this opportunity to play again, I think I’m a lot more settled, I’m a lot more calm and cooled.
Other than winning the money, what’s the one thing you’re hoping to get out of your second experience?
The memories, man! The money’s first — I’m not going to bulls–t you — but the memories are definitely second up to bat. Most of the time, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so I get to cherish every moment, every opportunity. The game can go by really quick — you can be gone the first week or in the second week. You really have to cherish the moment you go in that door.
Our snap judgment
Dallas makes some good points here. Who’s going to be going after him in the early going? He’s not a major target, he’s fairly trusting, and he’s someone who you can hide behind because sometimes he doesn’t know when to be quiet. We don’t think that Dallas can make it to the end (he’s a little too much like a bull in a china shop — last season we said he would burn down the house if he was to ever get into power), but we wouldn’t be shocked to see him as a jury member.
