Shelly Moore

Name: Shelly Moore
Age: 41
Hometown: Centerville, Ohio (living in Prairieville, La.)
Occupation: Outdoors Industry Executive
Three adjectives that describe you: Dynamic, tenacious and giving
Favorite activities: I like to play with my family.  We play wall ball and Super Mario is hilarious.  We like to ride bikes and scooters and swim a lot.  I also like collecting all the junk mail, then saving it, and then putting all of it in a postage paid junk mail envelope to send back to one of the senders.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the BIG BROTHER house? (Dealing with) the filth of people who don't clean up their stuff.  The other hard part would be sleeping in a room with people who snore.  Also, popping a zit in front of America would be a new challenge.
Strategy for winning BIG BROTHER: I'm a leader, a ring leader and a team builder.  I would try to pull a good group of people together that could mutually benefit from the arrangement.
Which past BIG BROTHER cast member did you like most or least? I loved Jeff and Jordan.  They were genuine and real.  They were also extremely classy and represented themselves very well as human beings.
What are you afraid of? Snakes and really tall buildings.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? My daughter.  Every smile, every hug, every word... she is part of her daddy and me.
Finish this sentence: My life's motto is... It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man in the arena... Teddy Roosevelt
What would you take into the house and why?
My husband and daughter smiling in a picture, Monster Blue (energy drink) and ear plugs.
What would you do if BIG BROTHER made you famous? I would make a bee line to St. Jude's hospital with my little girl and do all we could for those kids.





Shelly, a 41-year-old outdoors industry executive originally from Centerville, Ohio, is one of the houseguests on the 13th season of "Big Brother." Shelly on her favorite twist: "I love the Coup D'etat. I loved it! I thought it shook things up. I'd be happy to see that again, and I'd be happy if people voted for me to get it. Having those kinda things in your back pocket allows you to play a little bit differently."

What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the BIG BROTHER house? Not having my dog for three months.
Strategy for winning BIG BROTHER: Try not to blow up at too many people.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most or least? Natalie Martinez - I love that she straight up lied to everyone and it worked.  We are around the same age so I hate that she had the idea and chance before me.
What are you afraid of? Sharks
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Taking care of my father after his heart attack.
Finish this sentence: My life's motto is... fear is stupid, so are regrets.

Porsche, a 23-year-old VIP cocktail waitress originally from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is one of the houseguests on the 13th season of "Big Brother." Porsche on her lying skills: "I am a good liar [laughs]. I mean not even just a good liar. I know how to definitely put on a façade. My job requires me to upsell $200 bottles of champagne for $1,000. And if it's that easy for me to sell a drink, I'm sure it's going to be easy to sell myself."

Lawon Exum

Name: Lawon Exum
Age: 39
Hometown: Urbana, Ill. (living in Inglewood, Calif.)
Occupation: Legal File Clerk
Three adjectives that describe you: "Handsomexy" (handsome and sexy, because I am inside and out) and clever.
Favorite activities: My favorite activity is exercising because it keeps my mind sharp and me looking "handsomefied."  I also like to travel with friends to experience different cities and cultures.

Strategy for winning BIG BROTHER: I will use my personality, style, gift of gab and cleverness to win Big Brother.
Which past BIG BROTHER cast member did you like most or least? I love Will from the second season.  I loved how he was upfront and honest from the beginning of the game.  He used his looks and personality to win votes and the game.
What are you afraid of? Roaches.  Ever since I was a child I have been afraid of them.  I presume because they represent filth.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? There are so many!  If I have to pick one it would be losing 54 pounds and maintaining my weight loss for the last 15 years.
Finish this sentence: My life's motto is... some people got IT and some people don't.  Now go get it.
What would you take into the house and why? My face clippers so I can always stay camera-ready, a treadmill to stay in shape and a laptop so I can stay in touch with my family and friends.
What would you do if BIG BROTHER made you famous?
I would show the entertainment world that there are still normal human beings in Hollywood and give back to my hometown, Urbana, Illinois.





Lawon, a 39-year-old legal file clerk originally from Urbana, Illinois, is one of the houseguests on the 13th season of "Big Brother." Lawon on his all-time favorite houseguest: "Evil Dr. Will! He was who he was. He didn't have no cut cards. When he walked into the house he was just like, 'I'm playing the game. I'm gonna do what I gotta do. Whatever.' That's me. I can't play a charade. I can do twists and turns and all that, but all in all, I am who I am."

Keith Henderson

Name: Keith Henderson
Age: 32
Hometown: Bolingbrook, Ill. 
Occupation: Human Resources Manager
Three adjectives that describe you: Charming, adorable and kiss-ass
Favorite activities: Working out, hanging out with my friends, dancing, writing poetry, going to church and doing anything spontaneous.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the BIG BROTHER house? Nothing - I deal with human capital (people) on a regular basis.
Strategy for winning BIG BROTHER: I'm going to use my HR charm to get people to trust and love me and then I will stab them if I need to.  I'll have the women swooning over me and the guys wanting to be on my team.  It's the perfect strategy.
Which past BIG BROTHER cast member did you like most or least? I loved BB2 Chill Town, first-ever alliance. 
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? There are too many to mention, but I would say "Genuine Ken" (on Hulu) and being a successful HR professional.
Finish this sentence: My life's motto is... Professional Keith would say: You can't believe in a dream if you can't believe in yourself.  Playboy Keith would say: Work all day, grind all night! 
What would you take into the house and why? My toothbrush, because my smile is key, and a Bible to keep me grounded.
What would you do if BIG BROTHER made you famous? Share the cash prize with my family and hope that it would open doors for me to do more acting.



Keith, a 32-year-old human resources manager originally from Bolingbrook, Illinois, is one of the houseguests on the 13th season of Big Brother Keith on his key to winning: "I've got a foolproof strategy. I'm going to align myself with three girls, Keith's Angels. Within that alliance, each of us will have our own mini alliances. And between the four of us, we'll determine — each week — who we want to take out. It's not about winning every single challenge; it's about the power of persuasion, and women are more manipulative and persuasive than men."

Kalia Booker

Name: Kalia Booker
Age: 30
Hometown: Philadelphia, Pa. (living in Los Angeles)
Occupation: Writer
Three adjectives that describe you: Anyone who can describe themselves in three adjectives is pretty boring but if I have to: dramatic, adventurous and gregarious
Favorite activities: I love singing, going to the beach, shopping, writing and going out with friends.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the BIG BROTHER house? Not being able to talk to my family and friends.  I'm really close with my mother and sisters.  I talk to them almost every day.  Also, being cut off from the world is going to be hard.  There are so many modern day technologies I'm addicted to my blackberry, email, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
Strategy for winning BIG BROTHER: None.  Everybody loves me!  I'll be there until the end.
Which past BIG BROTHER cast member did you like most or least? I loved Dr. Will.  He played the crap out of everyone and no one knew the wiser.  I loved James for the same reasons.  I also love Janelle because she was super cute, but could back it up by winning competitions.  She should have won the game.
What are you afraid of? Snakes, snakes, snakes and more snakes!  I can't see them on television, movies or think about them.  I checked my bed for snakes for a solid 12 years because my dad told me there were snakes in the woods behind our house and I assumed they could make their way into my bed.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? I've done a lot that I'm proud of but I feel really great about my recent financial independence.  I was really proud of myself when I paid my rent all on my own for the first time.
Finish this sentence: My life's motto is... Live life and laugh hard while you do it.
What would you take into the house and why? My BlackBerry but I'm pretty sure that won't be allowed, and my iPod because I need musicÂ…and because it would drown people out when they are annoying me.
What would you do if BIG BROTHER made you famous? Probably be famous... hang out with Lindsay Lohan or something.





Kalia, a 30-year-old writer originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is one of the houseguests on the 13th season of "Big Brother." Kalia on the challenge of living with her fellow houseguests: "I hate living with people. I hate dirty people. I hate sharing things … I hate dumb people [laughs]. There are so many things I don't like!"

Name: Dominic Briones    
Age: 25
Hometown: San Mateo, Calif.
Occupation: College Student at San Francisco State
Three adjectives that describe you: Funny, outgoing and good-hearted
Favorite activities: Riding motorcycles and mountain bikes.  I'm a speed freak.  I love the rush of flying on land.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the BIG BROTHER house? Not being able to leave or go outside of the house.  It will be tough not being able to go where I want, when I want.  Also, not being able to talk to my family and friends.
Strategy for winning BIG BROTHER: Build trust, build alliances and make friends.  Together we are strong, apart we fall.  Also, I don't want to be too strong too soon.  Flying under the radar in the beginning is key.
Which past BIG BROTHER cast member did you like most or least? I like Jeff for sure.  He seemed like a cool dude and played the game well.  Even though he didn't win, he was well liked and won "America's Favorite Houseguest."  I didn't like Jesse because he was too cocky.
What are you afraid of? I'm afraid of STDs.  Everything else, I can adapt to.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Having amazing relationships with my family and close friends.  Honestly, at the end of my life, that's what is most important to me.  How many people can say they really love their family?
Finish this sentence: My life's motto is... don't worry about a thing cuz every little thing is gonna be alright.
What would you take into the house and why? My iPod, some speakers and my video camera.  I would have some crazy dance-offs listening to some JLo and I'd love to capture it all on camera.  I can't live without my tunes.
What would you do if BIG BROTHER made you famous? Try to be a good example for people and make a difference of some sort.





Dominic, a 25-year-old college student originally from San Mateo, California, is one of the houseguests on the 13th season of "Big Brother." Dominic on speaking his mind: "That's going to be my weakness in the game. That's what's going to kill me. I talk too much. It's hard for me to bite my tongue; it's hard for me to hold back. And not only will I tell you if you're annoying, I'll probably tell you to shut up, eventually. It's probably gonna be my downfall."

Hometown: Allen, Texas (living in Nashville, Tenn.)
Occupation: Model
Three adjectives that describe you: Stubborn, sincere and funny
Favorite activities: My favorite thing to do is to sit around (preferably outside and with men) and have a couple of beers.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the BIG BROTHER house? It will be hard to be cut off from the world for (hopefully) three months, but what are a few months in the grand scheme of things?  
Strategy for winning BIG BROTHER: I'm going to play the same way I live - be sweet and kind to everyone but always remember it's a game and everyone's in it for themselves.  My plan is to stay neutral, fly under the radar, don't be a threat and play well in competitions.
What are you afraid of? Heights!  I don't care for insects or snakes, but for the sake of the game, bring them on.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Having a successful career.  I've made it happen through persistence and devotion and I haven't let it change who I am.
Finish this sentence: My life's motto is... go hard or not at all.  Suck everything you can out of life and live with no regrets.  Never treat anyone as if they're less than you because you haven't walked in their shoes.
What would you take into the house and why? Music because it is a powerful tool that can literally alter your mood, books because they're a relaxing escape and lotion because I need it.
What would you do if BIG BROTHER made you famous? Fame has never been something I've actively sought out, but if it happened through the show I would absolutely exploit it to the fullest.  It would be a reward and blessing to know I have the tools to always support my family and myself.





Cassi, a 26-year-old model originally from Allen, Texas, is one of the houseguests on the 13th season of "Big Brother." Cassi on who she prefers to hang out with, girls or guys: "I've got a couple of really great, awesome, cool, down-to-earth girlfriends that are my best friends in the world. But, generally speaking, I get along with guys. I'm not much for the drama and the backtalk … I don't necessarily prefer guys, they just tend to be more in-tune with my personality."

She was gorgeous, until she opened her mouth. But now I have a girlfriend at home. I love her to death. She is my motivation to win this game."
