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 Olivia Riemer, a student from Guelph, Ontario who wants to make the world a better place. (There’s not often a lot of this that happens in the Big Brother house.)
Take a look at the pre-game interview below.
CarterMatt – Tell me about yourself — your name, your age, and where you’re from.
Olivia Riemer – I’m Olivia, I am 21 — I’m going to turn 22 pretty soon. I’m from Guelph, Ontario.
What do you do for a living?
I’m a full-time student. I’m at the University of Guelph, where I am studying political science to become a human rights lawyer. And, I do cosmetics on the side.
What made you want to be on Big Brother Canada this season?
First and foremost, I’m a huge fan of the show and winning 100 grand wouldn’t totally suck. Also, I don’t want to have a boring life; I want to challenge myself and push myself out of my comfort zone.
What’s your strategy for winning this season?
My strategy will probably depend on who is in the house with me, but going in I want to lay low and form some good relationships. I want to establish who’s in my alliances and then go from there and start winning competition.
Who are you most like from past Big Brother seasons, US or Canada?
I would say that I’m a little bit of a few different people. I’m a little like Jillian in that I want to play a clean game and I’m very competitive and I have a good chance of winning a lot of competitions. I’m also a little like Cassandra because I can be a little high-maintenance sometimes and a bit of a diva. I’m also a little like Maddy because I’m sporty and pretty down to earth.
What’s the one part of your life at home you’re going to miss the most in the game?
I’ll probably just being able to schedule my days because I like planning out my days. I love having a routine and here I’ll have surprises in front of me front and center.
Who is your biggest idol in life and why?
Probably my dad would be my biggest idol. He’s such a nice guy, always thinking about other people. He’s super-super smart but he doesn’t come across as arrogant.
How are you going to keep live feed viewers at home entertained?
Probably having a lot of conversations with people. Getting to know people is often really interesting to see. I hope people are entertained watching me day to day and not get bored.
Besides the money, what are you hoping to get out of this season?
I feel like it’s inevitable that I’m going to make friends because it’s such a unique experience. In going through this with such a small group of people, you are probably going to make friends.
Outside from that, probably just the experience. I want to experience self-growth as cheesy as that sounds. But, that can only happen if you put yourself in uncomfortable situations and push yourself to the limit.
She’s making it pretty far in the game because she shouldn’t stand out one way or another as any huge danger — with that, she could be a darkhorse since people may underestimate her. Her being so young is a little concerning but she wouldn’t be the first young person in this game to do extremely well.
