PostSubject: Joe Arvin   July 5th 2012, 11:10 am



Name: Joe Arvin
Age: 41
Hometown: Lexington, Ky. (living in Schererville, Ind.)
Occupation: Chef
Three adjectives that describe you: Leader, performer and entertainer.
Favorite Activities: Watching my kids play sports, compete and see them have that drive to win.
Most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: 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.

This is interesting, from bigbrothernetwork:

Also, due to a last minute change we won’t have an interview video for one of them. Other than that start enjoying and keep coming back this afternoon as we roll out the interview videos over the next few hours.

Since Joe's pic doesn't look like the others on their site, I'm guessing he was the last-minute addition. This kind of thing happens more often than not, but I wonder what the story is?

Mike, a sailing instructor, was listed on examiner.com as a cast member, but obviously not any more. Anyone have info?

almost all of them say they love to cook, hopefully he won't feel like it is his kitchen and upset the other players.

bergen, he sure sounds like a preacher to me.

It's interesting that when I watched the interviews yesterday almost all the newbies love to cook for a change. Now we have a chef. I predict some drama about who will cook this season.

SmashMouth Burgers founder heads to 'Big Brother' as houseguest

Joe “Chef Joe” Arvin, a founder of SmashMouth Burgers and Pizza in Schererville, has left the kitchen to become a houseguest on the 14th season of “Big Brother” on CBS.

Brian Brundage, who opened SmashMouth with Arvin two years ago, said Arvin sold him his interest in the business several months ago to pursue a career in reality TV.

“It looks like it happened,” Brundage said.

Brundage said about a year into the business Arvin “felt maybe his heart was a bit more in reality TV than running a restaurant.”

“Big Brother” will premiere Thursday. Arvin will be competing with 11 other houseguests including the brother of “Survivor” participant Russell Hantz and Jenn Arroyo, a former bass player for the female metal group Kittie.

Four top players from previous seasons also will join the cast and will be revealed later in the season.

According to a CBS news release, this season’s guests will live in a house that will feature an arcade room, a Zen garden-inspired backyard and an oversized chess game. If Arvin cooks, he’ll find a kitchen with white, open cabinets showcasing “pops of bright colors inside.”

The house will be outfitted with 53 cameras and 98 microphones to capture every move 24 hours a day.

Each week the guests vote someone out of the house until the last person remaining receives a prize of $500,000.

“Joe’s got a heck of a personality,” Brundage said. “Generally people with good personalities end up doing well. We wish him the best of luck.”

In the “Big Brother” cast bio page, Arvin said his strategy for winning the reality show is to use his cooking skills to help get him to the end.

“Every one loves to eat; never get rid of the cook,” he said.

Arvin also says on the website his favorite “Big Brother” cast member was Chicken George because he was able to move around undetected for much of the time.

Arvin also said he’d bring a football into the house to remind him every day it’s a game and he’ll win; a cookbook because he’s always studying his art; and a family photo because “I never forget where I come from and who I am fighting for.”

Joe annoys me... and he's not photogenic at all.

And why y'all dashing his dreams? You don't think CBS will offer him a ton of opportunities like they did JoJe and Brench? I mean, he does look up to Jeff. Y'all haters. Razz

He already did. At dinner last night they were going on and on how good his slop burgers were.
He seems to have made a real hit with the rest of the houseguests.
I thought I wouldn't like him, but I do. He seems really nice.

I like him too ... cooking has always been a good addition to any HG's game play. (Mainly because you have a reason to be centrally located for long periods of time and you can see who's talking to who and where everybody is in the house.) Both Jun and Nicole used it to good advantage.

I dont like that this dude yells at us in his DR, but I'm surprised by how much of a gamer he's trying to be. Now, if he has any comp skills, he'll be the best older male character/competitor we've gotten since Jerry. Of course, that's not much of a compliment when one realizes he's the only older male character we've gotten since Jerry.

I don't agree with people calling him a male Shelly though. Just because he lies (unnecessarily a lot of the time) doesn't equate him to Shelly. Shelly used a lot of social skills to groom people, stroking their egos, getting people to trust her as a way to gain, maintain, and contain information before using it for her or others' benefit. Joe, thus far, is not doing that, choosing instead to put stuff into the air, hoping that it sticks, to push people into doing his will. Sometimes, his lies end up being truths hours after the fact.

I like Joe too. He is not fooled by Willie, he is loyal to Janelle and his team, and he is trying to play the game.

IMO Joe is more loyal to Boogie than he is to Janelle. He's almost as paranoid as Willie and I expect him to blow at any time or do a Ronnie.

Me too boots! lol!

Joe is getting on my last nerve on the live feeds too. shoot_me

He never shuts up and talks so loud. I'm tired of him constantly stir the pot. I hope he gets caught soon. He just admitted to Kara on the feeds that he instigated the fight between Willie and Frank. I'm beginning to think he's Shelley 2.0.
