Big Brother 2013 HouseGuest Howard Overby is a youth and family advocate/counselor, a very noble profession in our opinion. He’s quite the soft spoken guy despite his athletic kind of tough guy build. He thinks the Big Brother 15 casting crew picked him because of his “realness” and because he is not fake at all — but you never quite know what he is thinking, so he’s also hard to predict. Normally that kind of “I’m so real” speech puts us off, but from him, we kind of believe it. We’ll see what happens when the cameras go on! He could quickly evolve into being insufferable.
Howard calls himself a “black southern gentleman” and an “intellectual.” He loves people and he has a “big great spirit” and loves God. He would like to play the game morally and be the first African-American to win Big Brother. We hope he gets that “morals” and “winning Big Brother” may be two totally incompatible concepts. Howard says he was a hardcore fan the first three seasons of Big Brother but he’s just been too busy to really be as big a fan as he used to be. We’re somewhat fond of Howard so far, so we’ll let him nickname himself for now as our Big Brother 2013 “Southern Gentleman.”
“My basic plan for winning Big Brother 15 is to form a secret alliance of four or five strong people. I also want to have another, more public alliance, that I’m not as loyal to, so either way, I’m playing the numbers game.”
Will you be voting for Howard as the first Big Brother Most Valuable Player?
