The Big Brother 19 cast is here and 16 brand-new houseguests will be entering the house this summer for a shot at $500,000. Before the action begins, we’re breaking down each of the contestants to analyze their strengths and weaknesses.

BB19 Twist Revealed: The Summer of Temptation>>>

This is Alex Ow, a 28-year-old eco-friendly marketing rep from Camarillo, California.

Her Backstory

Alex describes herself as “hyper” and that’s an understatement. In her interview with Jeff Schroeder she spoke a mile a minute and her bio is filled with an eclectic group of hobbies, from knitting to video games to hiking to watching Netflix to spending time with her family.

Her Strategy

She’s relying on the fact that she’s only 5 feet tall will make her seem like a non-threat so she can fly under the radar. However, her official strategy is filled with contradictions. She wants to prove her strength, but stay weak.

Other Fun Facts

Her favorite player is season 18 winner Nicole Franzel. Alex somehow claims that Nicole was both the most honest HG, but also did some shady things. It seems likely that last year is the only season she actually watched.

Her Chances

The fact that her bio is all over the place and she can’t stop talking, Alex isn’t likely to win or even last long. She may think that being short will help her fly under the radar, but her personality is impossible to hide. She’s very reminiscent of Paola from season 16, which isn’t a good thing.

Big Brother 19 premieres Wednesday, June 28 at 8/7c on CBS.
