Lolo Jones (athlete, 36)
Strategy: My strategy will continue to evolve as I continue to understand more about the game and the players. Whenever you go into a race, you can calculate all you want but the races always change depending on the environment and who you are competing against. I will try to be as fluid as I can and be calm and not easily offended.

Difficulties: Getting along with all the different personalities and backgrounds. I think I’ll be able to adjust to changes in the elements (i.e. schedule change, temperature change, etc.), but the human interactions are what make me the most nervous.

Favorite “Big Brother” contestant: I loved watching Ross compete.  I think Ross and Omarosa were the most entertaining cast members.

Kato Kaelin, (actor/host, 59)
Strategy: My strategy is just being me. I think that’s my strength.

Difficulties: Not using a cellphone, because it feels like it’s a part of my body, as if it’s a vital organ. Now I have to see if I can live without this organ.

Favorite “Big Brother” contestant: Chuck Liddell.

Joey Lawrence (actor, 42)
Strategy: Nope.

Difficulties: No TV, music or being outside.

Favorite “Big Brother” contestant: I don’t have one.
