BB12: Ragan Fox

(1/3) > >>


Name: Ragan Fox
Age: 34
Current Residence: West Hollywood, Calif.
Occupation: College Professor
Three adjectives that describe you: Funny, genuine, intelligent
Favorite Activities: Writing and performing poetry. My podcast is my biggest hobby. The show features my comedic take on pop culture and politics. I discuss everything on it.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: There is a lot of fighting and I tend to hold a grudge.
Strategy for winning Big Brother: Don't rock the boat until I have to. Float until war is declared and the floaters align with strong players who are perceived to be bigger threats. Form a secret alliance about two weeks into the game. Don't win too many competitions but don't obviously throw them.
What types of people would you NOT choose to live with you in the house: Homophobes, 18-23 year-olds (the ages of students I teach), ultra conservatives
A recurring theme on Big Brother is "expect the unexpected." How would you handle "the unexpected:" I'd roll with the punches.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most or least: Most: Janelle, because what you saw is what you got. Least: Boogie. White rappers are too much of a paradox for me. And Chima, she was a poor sport and bad game player.
What are you afraid of: Heights, flying, homophobia
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of: I've had 2 poetry collections published: Heterophobia and Exile in Gayville
Finish this sentence: "My life's motto is:" The Golden Rule: Treat others how you want/expect to be treated.
Is there anything else you want to tell the audience about yourself: I love to make people laugh. In my world, there's nothing a well-placed fart joke can't cure. Humor is how I roll with the punches.

TV GUIDE take:

Ragan Fox

Age: 34

From: West Hollywood, CA

Occupation: Professor at Cal State Long Beach

He does not plan to admit he has a doctorate in communications. "I'm obsessed with BB and I know how to talk game," says Fox. "That and a PhD would get me bounced from the house in a second even I would evict me!" A part-time slam poet and author of two poetry collections on gay life (2005's Heterophobia and 2009's Exile in Gayville), Fox won't fret if there's homophobia in the house. "I grew up in very conservative Cypress, Texas," he says. "I know how to navigate through that sort of thing extremely well." The day Fox found out he was a BB finalist, he spotted Season 10's flamboyant Rennie at his local grocery store. A good omen?

I like him thus far and I hope he's not too over the top.
