Howie Gordon// Big Brother 6

I was born at Illinois Masonic Hospital in Chicago, Illinois on January 7, 1981. I was a really cute kid with blonde hair and brown eyes. I always was into the beach and animals, so for fun I would catch frogs, snakes, and turtles. Most of my life I grew up in Chicago enduring the cold winters. In the late 70s and early 80s, Mom and Dad took me to California and Florida. I was always envious of the ocean and palm trees. As a young kid I would catch lizards in Florida and sneak them back to Chicago on the airplane. By 5 years old, I was a baseball fan and an excellent t-ball player. LOL! Quite often I was able to attend Cubs and White Sox games.
I always had many friends, and I have always been pretty loud! I hung around all walks of people. While I was into playing hide-and-go-seek in a cornfield, I was also always into sports. I loved going to Six Flags, the zoo, and video arcades. In 6th and 7th grade, I played a lot of golf. I loved being less than 16 years of age without a license and able to drive a golf cart.
In the summer before 8th grade, on August 8th, I was playing golf with my dad. He told me that he was aware I was playing with explosives. He did not want me playing with fireworks anymore. I should have listened! The very next day I injured my hand with fireworks. As long as that remains the worst thing to ever happen to me until the day I die, I don’t have any problem with it. I still played organized and unorganized sports very well.
High school was fun, and I continued having lots of friends. While I went to many parties, I was a huge non-drinker, non-smoker, and non-drug user. It was kind of difficult fitting in as a sober non-Jedi. By my early 20′s, I went to Southern Illinois University and became a student/stripper! I was a stripper for a short time because, believe it or not, I was into my studies. I could not dance, but my great looks and awesome body more than made up for it. My development as a young Jedi had begun.
A year later, I was in Tampa at the University of South Florida where, while working out in a gym, I met by buddy Super Dave. He possessed it all: Intelligence, enthusiasm, persona, confidence, as well as all the intangibles to become a fabulous businessman. I was quite amazed at how powerful of a Jedi Super Dave had already become.
Super Dave helped develop my raw materials and untapped talent that probably molded me into the great looking Beefcake I am today. After college, I went into sales. I have never forgotten about my meteorology dreams, and I will become a weatherman one day. At the same time, my destiny and calling should be presented all around the world. Blind Date and Elimidate were great in February and March of 2005. My Jedi skills took over in both shows. On Big Brother, the Force was with the Sovereign 6+2, just not strong enough. I was still only 3-4 HOH’s and POV’s away from winning it all! My Jedi skills are complete, and I will get to hone them again in the VERY NEAR FUTURE!

Age: 26
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 More…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.

Lawon Exum// Big Brother 13

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.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the BIG BROTHER house? The most difficult part will be adjusting to housemate’s More…hygiene habits.
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.
