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 William Kenny, our contestant representing Newfoundland this year. He has a fairly thick accent but also an enthusiastic personality — unfortunately, he often doesn’t express that enthusiasm for longer than just a few words when answering questions in an interview setting.
Take a look at the pre-game interview below.
CarterMatt – Tell me about yourself — your name, your age, and where you’re from.
William Kenny – I’m William, I’m 24 years old and from Trepassey, Newfoundland.
What do you do for a living?
I work offshore in the oil rigs.
What made you want to be on Big Brother Canada this season?
Just the overall experience, really — the social aspect is really cool. I mean obviously the big grand prize — I gotta bring the title back to Newfoundland!
Are you a fan of the show?
What’s your strategy for winning this season?
Going into the house I know I have to play a social game and try to get along with everyone. Hang on through the first half of the game before making some big moves.
Who are you most like from past Big Brother seasons, US or Canada?
The closest I can think of would be Jon Pardy because he’s also from Newfoundland, but we’re all different. That’s why we’re all cast.
What’s the one part of your life at home you’re going to miss the most in the game?
It would definitely be my son for sure.
Who is your biggest idol in life and why?
I look up to my dad the most. For sure.
How are you going to keep live feed viewers at home entertained?
I’ll have no problem with that — just be myself.
Besides the money, what are you hoping to get out of this season?
Hopefully just walk away with some new, genuine friendships. No regrets.
This was probably the worst overall interview because he didn’t really offer explanations for anything. Very short answers. Most of the appeal so far comes from him via the super-thick accent. He’s such a unique person in terms of how he sounds and where he’s from that he won’t be a threat early; yet, there’s not much about him that screams “watch out for me winning the game.”
What’s your take on William?
