What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house? Missing my family and missing work. Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most? I don't know all of them, but it would be Mike "Boogie" Malin. He made me laugh and was a strategist.
Do you have a strategy for winning the game? Honestly, no. I believe that anyone that goes into the game with a set strategy is set for failure. [There is] too many twists and turns, so it's hard to create one without knowing the players involved.
My life's motto is... Rock on.
What would you take into the house and why? - A family picture to see my family. - My wedding ring to think about my wife. - A cell phone to call my family.
Fun facts about yourself: - I ran for office for Passaic County Freeholder. - I MUST take baths at night. - I was called "The Hammer" in college. - I was my state wrestling champion in high school and also earned a football scholarship to Northwestern University. - After college, I put my muscle to use in the NYPD and became a lead in their OCID (Organized Crime Investigation Division).
Not too many more tidbits from the Ross interview that aren't in the official bio. He will be telling everyone he is a mechanic, and there has already been a cop winner and a college professor winner. He is a fan. He would rather win and be hated than lose and be loved.

I don't like him. He thinks he is smarter than everyone else. I think it is hilarious that he is not getting over on them like he expected. All of his conversations are manipulative. They seem to involve him talking about what a good man he is, how normal he is compared to the others, how inferior this house makes him feel, constantly talking BS. Too much IMO, someone's gonna sniff it out.
I just never like the full-blown liar type. They have a cover story that they are sticking with and don't give you any accurate information about themselves. Maybe it is a good strategy (it worked for Derrick, whom I also hate) but it makes me dislike them greatly.
