If people stuck with their pregame strategy, I’d rank this guy 14th at best. He is planning on playing an absolutely terrible game with the ‘I need to get floaters out soon!’, ‘I refuse to be a pawn’, ‘I will always be part of every conversation’.  You know what that creates?  The annoying guy who is a physical threat and unwilling to bend at all for his alliance. Once an alliance is secure, there is absolutely zero reason to keep him around as he’s going to be the guy to boss people around, complain about strategy, and freak when things don’t go his way.

Then again, not everyone actually follows their pregame strat. Once the game starts, most of the stuff written below gets tossed out the window and the good players adjust on the fly. Will that be Cody?  Hard to tell. He has the standard profile of someone you’d expect to be.. less than smart.. but then he tosses in the solving a Rubik’s Cube in less than a minute.  What’s up with that? Two people this season who love the Rubik’s Cube?  Weird.

Solving a Rubik’s Cube in under a minute doesn’t guarantee him being smart, but it does mean he has the ability to study and learn ways to solve problems. I’m not sure people are aware of it, but there is a strategy to solve the Cube. I’ve never bothered learning it, but there is one. It’s why people can solve it in seconds behind their back while blindfolded and using their feet or some shit (don’t ask me how they can use their feet behind their backs).

Also, bragging about never taking a selfie?  Please. I don’t know what’s worse, the fact that he’s either lying or that he’s telling the truth. If he’s telling the truth, that means he has gone through his life actively stopping himself from taking a selfie and keeping track of it. He puts far too much thought into actively not taking a selfie or wearing a suit that he’s possibly going to be a lunatic. Maybe that’s a good thing?  Maybe I’m analyzing him too much?  Perhaps he’s going to end up my spirit animal

Official CBS Bio

Three adjectives that describe you: Confident, charming, and sweet

Favorite activities: Surfing is my No. 1 activity. I started surfing when I was stationed in North Carolina and now I take surfing trips to North Carolina or California when I get the chance.

I also took a trip to Hawaii to surf. I enjoy riding my motorcycle, too.

What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house?
I think if a bunch of people are on a different sleep schedule and making noise while I’m trying to sleep, it will be difficult. I like my eight hours of sleep a night.

However, if I need to be in the mix, I will stay up with everyone to always gain the appropriate intel.

Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most?
“Evel” Dick Donato from Season 8. I LOVE it when someone plays the game in a way that has never been seen before—and it works!

Do you have a strategy for winning the game?
Yes. First off, the overbearing Houseguests will expose themselves, which should create a nice divide. The ones talking their game out loud, I would shoot for them first.

After getting rid of them, the floaters go next. If you float, you’re getting voted out. I want to face warriors and champions to the end, not some tagalong.

After that, [I’ll try to] win every competition, which I have the ability to do, if it’s individual. If there’s a way to accomplish these things through influence and by causing someone else to execute my moves, I’ll make that happen.

If I have to gain the HOH position and do it myself, I will absolutely do that, too.

I will never put myself in a pawn position. I will always be a part of every conversation I can and ask questions, but avoid inserting my opinion directly. I’ll always do it in a roundabout way, making people believe it’s their opinion.

My life’s motto is… Semper fidelis.

What would you take into the house, and why?
– My silkie shorts, the short Marine Corps PT shorts
– A frisbee
– My canteen coffee cup

Fun facts about yourself:
– I can solve a Rubik’s cube in less than a minute
– I have never worn a suit
– I have never worn cologne
– I have never taken a selfie
– I have never been offended—not once
