A brash Walnut Creek man will be among 13 house guests of "Big Brother 11" when the popular reality show returns to CBS next week.
Russell Kairouz, 24, known to his friends as "Russell the Love Muscle," joins a group of total strangers in the "Big Brother" house, where their every move is continuously watched by prying cameras.
Unfortunately, it's against newspaper policy to speculate on nicknames of local reality show contestants ... as of today.
A short biography released on Wednesday by CBS describes Kairouz as a commercial real estate broker who also engages in mixed martial arts. The bio claims. "Loud and brash, Russell holds nothing back and is always ready for a fight."
Let's hope so. Why else would anyone watch reality TV?
The bio says Kairouz's biggest pet peeve is "people who don't think before they act, but only because he's made mistakes while doing just that." In college, he was in a motorcycle accident while trying to impress a group of girls, leaving him temporarily paralyzed .
Kairouz, who is single, has previously lived in Southern California and Lebanon. Among the 11 other roommates announced by CBS were a Tae Kwon Do champion, a neuroscientist and a special effects makeup artist. The identity of a 13th "mystery house guest" will be announced later.
