BBCAN6: Ryan Ballantine
« on: March 03, 2018, 03:11:29 PM »


Name: Ryan Ballantine
Age: 39
Hometown: Calgary, AB
Occupation: Fire safety technician and department manager
Relationship status: Married

Describe yourself in three words:
Sarcastic, lazy, and a troll.

There are many sides to Big Brother. Letís pretend youíre him! What kind of Big Brother would you be?
I think you start out with tough and then you have to realize whether or not everybody can handle ďtough.Ē If they canít handle tough, then sometimes you need to be a bit more free flowing to just make things work.

Do you have a strategy to win Big Brother Canada?
If you donít have a strategy at this point, youíre dead. Iím trying work something thatís never been used on BBCAN, which is the opposite alliance. So where you find somebody on the other side of the house thatís your ride or die, theyíre not in your alliance, theyíre on the other side and you can protect each other from the outside in until you get to the finals. Then you flip in the last six weeks or so and reassemble everything together, but in the mean time youíve stayed pretty far apart, and nobody knows youíre working together until the very end.

What are you known for?
Iím known for a couple things. People who know who I am Ė I do MMA commentary, Iíve got a CFL podcast Ė Iím kind of very specific to specific things famous, and the hard-core diehard CFL maybe knows who I am. So Iím known for a lot of my broadcasting projects. In my day-to-day life Iím known as the sarcastic troll. I like to make fun of people, and thereís a way to do it so that people understand that youíre saying what youíre saying because itís funny, and thereís no malice behind it.

What part of the Big Brother Canada experience do you think will be hardest for you?
First and foremost, Iím going to miss my family. I canít believe what kind of person wouldnít say that first when they have a family at home. Iím going to miss my wife and son. My son is crazy funny and makes me laugh every day. And I couldnít imagine a better wife for me, she fits everything that I lack, she makes up for it incredibly and puts up with a lot. Also, being separated from the outside world (I live on Twitter and Facebook), Iím on social all the time, so being disconnected is going to be really, really weird.

Who is your Big Brother Canada idol and why?
Kevin is really good because he just came at the game so aggressively the first time and the second time it was a different kind of aggression, it was more of a muted aggression. He manipulated the house into doing what he wanted them to do without them knowing, which was far more successful for him.

What do people from Calgary have that gives them an edge to win Big Brother Canada?
Calgary is an industrious place, we do whatís needed to succeed. Thereís a ruthlessness to Alberta that is different than other places in the country. Saskatchewan has natural resources but theyíre known as friendlier people. Out west, Alberta I think stands alone as more of an aggressive place, and that wears on you. You get what you want, you get what you need, and do what you have to do to get there.

Rapid Fire:
Good guy or bad guy?
Bad guy

Competition beast or floater?
Thatís not a yes or no question.

First HOH or first nominee?
First HOH

First out or first juror?
First out, first juror sucks.

No sleep or no food?
No sleep

Math skills or language skills?
Both

Gut instinct or pure intellect?
Pure intellect, but thereís room for both. Itís your gut that feeds your brain.

Showmance or Nomance?
Nomance, bromance
