It will be

hard to have everyday, every minute, every second of my life on the air. I think at times I will want to crawl into a hole and hide.

Strategy for winning "Big Brother"?

I plan to use my cooking skills to help get me to the end. Every one loves to eat, never get rid of the cook!

Which past "Big Brother" cast member did you like most or least?

My favorites were Chicken George, because he was able to move around undetected for much of the time, and Will, who won by acting like he was crazy. Come on that's talent.

What are you afraid of?

I am not a big fan of being alone. I love to have people around me at all times. It comforts me. It makes me happy. I would also say heights. I get upset and dizzy.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of?

Never giving up, my will to win and being a mentor to my kids.

Finish this sentence: My life's motto is…

... Inspire, dream, cook. That's how you become great!

What would you take into the house and why?

A football to remind me everyday that it's a game and I will win. A cookbook since I'm always studying my art and a family photo because I never forget where I come from and who I am fighting for.
