A Red Deer man will be a houseguest on the upcoming season of Big Brother Canada.
Kyle Moore, 26, will compete on the ninth season of the Global reality television show, which will feature 14 people sharing an isolated home, while they try to avoid being evicted by their housemates.
“I want Canada to think of me as the guy who would do anything it takes to win,” Moore said on his video bio on www.bigbrothercanada.ca.
“I don’t take myself seriously at all. I think like is kind of just one big party. What are you doing with your life if you’re not up for a fun time?”
The winner will take home a grand prize of $100,000. The show premieres Wednesday at 5 p.m.
Moore, an unemployed hockey coach, said his strategy going into the house is to be likeable and develop connections with every other contestant.
“You need friends to win the game, you need a good jury management. I know I can come in and dominate (competitions). When I win Big Brother, it’s going to be a party,” he said.
“I want to find that one ride-or-die houseguest and stay true to that alliance. I also want to dominate in the competitions.”
In his video bio, the Red Deer man said 2020 was a “wreck” for him.
“I live with my parents, I’ve got no job and I’ve got no money,” he said with a smile before holding both thumbs up.
“Being a 26-year-old living with you’re parents, … I’m a single guy and you can’t really live that single life. So I’m glad to have a new full-time job living in the Big Brother Canada house.”
Moore said being in the Big Brother house is just like being on a hockey team.
“You’re going to have people you hate, people you love,” he said.
“I think I was chosen because I am a charismatic and athletic guy, who loves taking risks and has lived an interesting life.”
Other houseguests on this season of Big Brother Canada include a Newfoundlander with a background in graphic design, a police officer from Ontario, an Indigenous radio host from British Columbia, and a transgender social media influencer from British Columbia.
The houseguests will compete in two teams at the beginning of the season. On night one, two team captains, who will be selected by online voting, will choose their teammates.
