1. What was it like to know you made it on season 2 of The Totem Pole?
So exciting!! I wanted it so bad, but I knew that so many other great candidates would apply. I was genuinely shocked when Wesley offered me a spot. I don't want to disappoint, so I want to get the game going immediately.
2. Who was your favorite from Season 1?
Tim the terror!! He had a great game! Allison played well too. Mason was definitely a surprising winner to me, but he played a good, sneaky game.
3. What is your strategy to win?
I want people to trust me. If I can get as many people as possible to feel comfortable with me, I won’t have to worry about getting low totem pole placements. I don’t want to isolate myself in one group, and I never want to stay in one room too long. I want to be in everybody’s ear all the time.
4. If you had a warning label, what would yours be?
Warning: she knows more than you think
5. What character trait might be your downfall?
People might not be able to understand where my head’s at. I spend a lot of time thinking through things, and that might make some people nervous
6. Why will you be the winner of season 2?
Because I’m a secret threat. I am a great debater, strategist, and I'm good at getting a sense of social dynamics. I’m constantly on alert, and I have analyzed the games of BB contestants-- I know what makes a good player.
7. What is your enneagram?
An explanation of that personality type: TYPE 7
8. What do the viewers need to know about you?
I’m here to play. I’ll be intentional with every move and social interaction, but if you blink, you’ll probably miss it. It’s all about the details.
Season 2 of The Totem Pole airs Sept. 15 on YouTube!
