CBS has finally released the cast bios for 12 of the 16 houseguests for Season 18 of "Big Brother," providing plenty of information for us to prematurely speculate about who will be swiftly eliminated and who will make it to the end.
Natalie Negrotti, 26Occupation: Event coordinator
Natalie asserts in her bio that "women suck at this game." That's factually incorrect, and makes her plan to align herself with women extremely confusing.
Victor Arroyo, 25Occupation: Gym manager
As a likely physical threat, Victor might be able to make it on his strength in challenges alone. But on the other hand, he describes his strategy as "I’m not entirely sure what I will do," which does not bode well.
Bridgette Dunning, 24Occupation: Traveling nurse
Bridgette says in her bio that her life motto is "follow your heart," which is a decidedly poor strategy for "Big Brother."
Paul Abrahamian, 23Occupation: Clothing designer
Paul describes himself as "sneaky" and "observant," two traits that could definitely come in handy if his plan to start "jam sessions" with his housemates doesn't immediately backfire.
Jozea Flores, 25Occupation: Make-up artist
Jozea seems to have the social skills to do well, and his plan to use "love and caring" for other houseguests is a good one. But he also picked Frankie Grande as his favorite player, and Frankie Grande was the worst.
Bronte D’Acquisto, 26Occupation: Student
Bronte wants to be known as the "girl-version of Derrick," the winner of Season 16. Given how he completely dominated his season, that's a tall bar to clear, but points for ambition.
Glenn Garcia, 50Occupation: Dog groomer/former police detective
Older contestants typically find themselves at a disadvantage on "Big Brother," but if he's able to play the right social game, Glenn's past as a police detective will definitely be an asset.
Paulie Calafiore, 27Occupation: DJ
The older brother of Cody Calafiore, who managed a second-place finish on Season 16, Paulie seems to be counting on the hope that "Big Brother" success runs in the family.
Zakiyah Everette, 24Occupation: Preschool teacher
Zakiyah's job as a preschool teacher suggests vast amounts of patience, which should come in handy when the other houseguests start acting like children.
Michelle Meyer, 23Occupation: Nutritionist
The token "Big Brother" super-fan, Michelle's plan to take on punishments and stir up a showmance to make herself look weak is solid. At the very least, it's good TV.
Corey Brooks, 25Occupation: Baseball coach
His job as a baseball coach suggests Corey's a natural leader, which could come in handy in the "Big Brother" house, and his strategy of being a "floater" might just be a winning one.
Tiffany Rousso, 32 Occupation: High school teacher
As long as Tiffany can avoid crying as much as her sister Vanessa did on Season 17, she might be able to do better than third place.
