Big Brother 14 cast houseguest Willie Hantz, 34, can primarily lay claim to fame as the brother of villain Russell Hantz from Survivor: Samoa and Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, the uncle of Survivor cast member Brandon Hantz, and brother to Shawn Hantz of flipped off.
Willie, who lives in Dayton, Texas and works as a tankerman, is willing to do whatever it takes to win Big Brother 14 and gain his own level of Reality TV fame. He said in one preseason interview that he would vote his own mother off to make it to the top. He actually thinks he can overshadow his famous brother Russell and be an even better reality TV show player. Big shoes there Willie, big shoes!
Vinton, Louisiana born Willie is also gross. Let me just say that. He told our buddies over at BigBrotherNetwork.com he thinks it would be a great trademark to leave a “deuce” in the toilet each time he takes a dump. Disgusting. He’s apparently really fond of his own excrement, as his Twitter feed tagline is “everytime i take a sh*t i blow up the toilet.”
Mr. Hantz is also allegedly still Tweeting to his fans, despite CBS not allowing contestants to do any such thing. Obviously it is someone else is having a great deal of fun playing Willie — probably his brother or nephew I’m thinking. (There was a rumor Willie got thrown off BB14 before the premiere because he had smuggled in his phone, but I’m not believing that until I see it.)
Also on his alleged Twitter Feed profile, Willie Hantz notes he is “not the glass house” — ha ha, yeah. Very cute. Willie’s Facebook page has been restricted to friends only, which is no fair because we just love reading all the wacky stuff on the Facebook pages of the new houseguests.
Willie, who says he can barely read, enjoys stupid movies like 21 Jump Street and reality shows (duh!) like Survivor and So You Think You Can Dance. He also listens to Celine Dion, Michael Bolton, and Lil Wayne. That makes me wince.
Willie says his strategy in the house is to help stir up drama and chaos, but not be in the center of it so he doesn’t look like it’s his fault. He also wants to keep all the crazy people in the house as long as he can to keep the target off himself. He has a girlfriend, but he’ll lay it on thick with the ladies if he thinks he can get ahead by doing it. However, he thinks showmances are a bad idea because the guy usually ends up a target. Also, he has said he would NEVER open Pandora’s Box unless things were seriously bad.
Decently knowledgeable about Big Brother, Willie’s favorite player is Dani Donato and he really wished Rachel Reilly would be on the show to cause the ultimate amount of chaos possible. He also said in his CBS profile, however, that he would have had to shoot himself if he’d been in the house with her last season. Willie admits he is a gambler and likes to take big risks, but he has lost more than he has won over the years. That could end up being exactly how he plays Big Brother.
Eviction: Willie defied all predictions, especially those placing him in the top three, by self-evicting when he was thrown off the show for getting violent with Chef Joe Arvin. He became the third person to leave Big Brother 14.
