Welcome to our Big Brother Canada 6 pre-game interview series! We recently had a chance to speak with the houseguests leading up to the start of this new season, premiering on Global on March 7, as we’ve done years in the past. The goal this year was to find out a little bit about these players strategically, but also a little more about them as people. We want to know why they’re going to be interesting personalities to watch over the coming months and where they are coming from.

In this article, the focus is on Andrew Miller, one of the 14 houseguests in the game from the jump. He’s a big guy with a big personality who loves food and finding ways to give back.
Take a look at the pre-game interview below.
CarterMatt – Tell me about yourself — your name, your age, and where you’re from.
Andrew Miller – I am Andrew, I am 36 years old and I’m from Scarborough, Ontario.
What do you do for a living?
My brother and I have a charity so I would be happy if you had me as ‘charity founder.’
What made you want to be on Big Brother Canada this season?
I’m a big fan of the show — I also represent a demographic that you can’t see on the show in that I’m a large back man. It’s a little bit different. I just wanted to go out there, represent, do something different, and win 100K bro.
What’s your strategy for winning this season?
I’m a very social guy — I got the gift of gab and I talk a little trash. I think my social game is definitely my strong point. I’m going to go in there, make friends, chat up a few people, blend in. If I gotta give out some back massages I’ll do that! If anyone wants me to cook up some Jamaican cuisine I’ll do that as well. I’ll do what I gotta do to stick around — make some friends and then stab them in the back when they’re not expecting it.
Who are you most like from past Big Brother seasons, US or Canada?
I like Donny, he was very nice and positive. I like that kind of energy. In terms of social game I’m kind of like Sarah Hanlon. She was really good at her social game and making alliances and striking when the time is right.
I’m a little bit of a mix. I’m also trying to be more of a comp beast, but traditionally competitions with bigger guys don’t really go that well. We’ll see if I can break that trend.
What’s the one part of your life at home you’re going to miss the most in the game?
I’ll be married two years in May, so I’m definitely going to miss my wife. We don’t have any kids yet, so I’m going to be missing out on some good practice time, if you know what I’m saying. Definitely going to miss my mom’s home cooking. Meals are something that you definitely take for granted in the Big Brother house, so I’m definitely going to miss my mom’s oxtail with a little rice and peas, a little bit of gravy.
Plus, I’m also a big basketball guy and I’m missing the second half of the NBA season. That’s a bit of a drag but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do.
Who is your biggest idol in life and why?
It varies! Kanye West is definitely guy that I love [for] his creativity and his energy. I also align myself with guys like Martin Luther King and Malcolm X. Growing up I was a big basketball fan and I’d wear #32 in honor of Magic Johnson — I love what he’s done in terms of philanthropy in Los Angeles.
How are you going to keep live feed viewers at home entertained?
I talk a lot of trash and I like some good banter. I’m on Reddit on [the down-low] so I know what the streets are looking for. I’m definitely going to be breaking that fourth wall and speaking with fans.
Besides the money, what are you hoping to get out of this season?
I’m sure there are some people saying that they’re fans but I’m a real fan. I’ve been lurking in the corners for far too long and now’s the time to step forward and make my presence felt.
Fantastic personality. He’s smart, funny, and while he’s a little bit of an outlier in terms of the rest of the house we do still think that he’s going to figure out a good way to fit in with just about any audience. His size may cause him trouble in some competitions but his likability more than makes up for it.
