BBCAN4 - Tim Dormer
« on: March 10, 2016, 07:48:39 PM »

Unique and energetic, Tim's greatest challenge will be keeping himself out of mischief and off the chopping block.

Age: 31
Hometown: Bondi Beach, Australia
Occupation: TV & Radio Host and Social Media Influencer

Describe yourself in three words:
Unique, Energetic, Annoying

Do you have a strategy to win Big Brother Canada?
Play nice. Which is hard because I usually play mean! In Australia, itís different. Itís all viewer voted, so even if youíre mean but youíre entertaining, you stay in the house. Whereas, here if people hate me in the house, Iím out. Iíll have to hold my tongue. My goal is to think before I speak or act. Itís going to be a challenge.

If you could take one thing inside the house, what would it be and why?
My dog! I have a French Bulldog called Meat Loaf and I love him and I miss him! Heís the only thing Iíve ever loved. That even includes human beings!

Brain vs. Brawn. Which challenges, physical or mental, do you fear most?
Iím very determined so if I decide I have to win, Iíll sit down and kind of meditate on winning for hours and focus in on it, and it works! I am really smart at mathematical puzzles Ė I have a thing for patterns or numbers. In terms of physical challenges, Iím so uncoordinated but nothing scares me. I might not be the strongest or the fittest but Iím definitely one of the most courageous.

If you won, how would you spend the winnings?
On something stupid like a pet dolphin? No, I wouldnít Ė I donít believe in keeping dolphins as pets. I would buy another dog! A girlfriend for Meat Loaf!

Many of your soon-to-be competitors will likely know you and may have even studied your BB strategy. Do you have a plan to use this to your advantage?
If theyíve watched me in Australia, theyíll probably know me as quite loud and overbearing. That said, Iíll just work to remind everyone that this is a very different type of show and competition, so I wonít be coming in with a leg up at all. Theyíve got the advantage Ė Iím the new guy! I think Iíll just win them all over with my Aussie charm!

What is your favourite or most important Big Brother memory from your experience in your prior season(s)?
Ooh. Good question. We had a challenge once where we had to nominate people for eviction and I wanted to do something to show everyone I wasnít afraid of them and didnít care whether they put me up for eviction so I nominated myself for eviction. That way I controlled my own fate. I knew that Australia would save me. And I was saved! I knew at that moment I could win. Like wow! People are rooting for me. It was a moment where I was doing something different, and thatís what I like to do in life: look at things differently. In my opinion the way to approach things is that you arenít going up against your houseguests, you are going up against Big Brother the whole time. The other houseguests are just my toys to play with while Iím in Big Brotherís house.

What do you think the most significant differences between Canadians and Australians?
From who Iíve met so far, Canadians are lovely and polite and probably donít really rock the boat. Peaceful. Australia is a country built basically by convicts! We arrived on a boat, rebelled against the government at the time and built a nation. Wild people in a wild, dangerous land. Aussies rock the boat. Weíre nice and genuine, but thereís no politeness needed.

Why should Canadians choose you to enter the house this season?
As a fan of the show, Iíve always played in a way that I think will be interesting to watch. I donít want it to be boring for people. Iím something different. Iíll add a totally new flavour to the mix. Itís a very strong flavour but it wonít be bland. Whether you like or hate me, youíll always have an opinion. Thatís what I want Ė I donít really care if you like or hate me. I enjoy making people think differently about things.

I only saw Tim on Celebrity Apprentice Australia and I really didn't like him there lol.

But he's actually decent in BBCAN, his BFFmance with Nikki <3
"But I got smarter, I got harder in the nick of time
Honey, I rose up from the dead, I do it all the time
I've got a list of names and yours is in red, underlined
I check it once, then I check it twice (oh)"

ĎBig Brother Canada 4í pre-game exclusive: Tim Dormer from ĎBig Brother Australiaí vies to enter house

While weíre mildly familiar with ďBig Brother Australia,Ē weíll be the first to admit that it is not a version of the show we watch regularly. Therefore, it took a little bit of research to learn about Tim Dormer when we learned he would be a cast member on ďBig Brother Canada 4.Ē He won the tenth season of the show Down Under, and there he used his ability to stir things up and be a big personality in order to get some voters on his side. Heís a super-energetic guy, and itís easy to see why he would do well in that game.

With that said, can he succeed in the American game? That was something we were eager to uncover in our pre-game interview with him. For those who missed it, Tim is one of four international contestants vying to enter the game this season. Two of them will enter, and the choice for Canadian voters is between Tim and ďBig Brother 5Ē / ďAll-StarsĒ contestant Jase Wirey. (Vote here!)

For those who didnít see you previously on Big Brother, how would you describe your experience?

Okay, so Iím a bit of a troublemaker. I like to get up to mischief, and Iím like the annoying younger brother. Iím like little brother! But I think I have a good heart and Iím very honest and real. Thatís what Australian audiences liked about me; I was very genuine and authentic. While I cause a little bit of trouble youíre always going to know what Iím thinking; Iím a bit of a wild card. Iím not very predictable. I wear my heart on my sleeve, but I do mix it up when it comes to strategy. Some people call me a really sort of manipulative puppet-master gameplayer, but I think thatís because they never knew what I was going to do strategy-wise. I always kind of kept them guessing. That is how I like to play! Never let the enemy know what youíre going to do next.

Whatís something about you that would surprise people?

Hm Ö That Iím actually a really nice guy. That I like to hang out with my grandmother. Sheís 95 years old and I like to have tea and scones with her every fortnight, so I canít be that bad! Iím a bad boy, but my grandma loves me. (Laughs.)

Do you have a specific strategy entering the house?

The ĎBig Brother Canadaí format, the game is so different than what Iím used to in Australia. The public actually votes for who they want to evict out of the house, and who they want to win the show. ĎBig Brother Canadaí is all about the other houseguests voting for you, and itís going to be a totally different strategy for me. Iím going to have to play the social game, Iím going to have to make alliances, and of course after winning a series before the Canadian houseguests will probably think Iím a threat. I have to make them believe Iím not a threat and get them when they donít expect it.

What makes you think that youíll be able to make it all the way to the end and win?

Look, I wouldnít want to be doing this if I didnít want to win again. I definitely do. I think Iím just gonna win them over with some Aussie charm and make them think Iím not a threat. Iím gonna stay true to myself, but I think I can play a bit sneaky and stay true to myself Ö though I am sneaky! (Laughs.)

What do you think your biggest weakness could be?

Thatís a good question! I canít tell you that! (Laughs.) Thatís like Superman advertising his Kryptonite. Iím used to people not liking me. In a competition I always like it when people think that they have to beat me; Iím not used to people wanting to people be on my team. Iím not used to teamwork, and Iím not a very good team player.

My weakness might be working with an alliance. Iím like a lone wolf; Iím like a one-man show! I donít need people to help me with my strategy, so maybe my weakness is gonna be the fact that I need to have an alliance to work together. Iíve never had that play out.

Other than winning the money, whatís the one thing youíre hoping to get out of this experience?

Iíd like to make some Canadian friends! Hopefully whatever happens, if I get in there, Iíll have some friends and if I come and visit again, I can stay at their house! Hopefully Iím not expelled by the nation and Iím not stopped at the airport, like Ďyou canít come in.í

In closing, what do you want to say to Canada? Why should they be excited to see you this season?

I think Canada should vote for me to get me into the house because Iíll keep it interesting and Iím the wild-card. Iím the crazy guy from Down Under. I donít know what people in Canada think of Australia or what their views of Australia are, but itís a pretty wild nation. Weíve got some of the most dangerous animals down there, but they donít come more wild than me.

If you want an interesting season of ĎBig Brother Canada,í then put me in that house.

Overall impression Ė Tim is fantastic. We really wish that the show wasnít making you choose and was just putting all four international players in instead, since thereís something so fascinating about a guy like Tim doing this game and seeing what he can learn about himself in a different environment. Heís going to have a tough time since we figure many people in Canada already know Jase and could vote for him, but Tim has so much charisma and is a really interesting, funny guy. He was a really great interview to do.
