Occupation: Rodeo Clown
BBCAN background: This guy is a total clown. No really. Jason Dent joins Big Brother 19 as a Rodeo Clown from Humestown, IA and this might be the thinest profile of the entire cast. Ironically, the man who tells us so little about himself says his special feature is his great story telling.

Occupation: Stay at home dad.
BBCAN background: A stay-at-home-dad from Boston, Kevin Schlehuber is the oldest houseguests this season of Big Brother. The 55-year-old seems to be a bit of a brief and to-the-point person as his only strategy is to be himself. Either he’s holding something back or he knows better than to formulate a whole plan before knowing who you’re playing the game with and what the twists might be.

Hometown: Thousand Oaks, Calif.
Currently living: Camarillo, Calif.
Occupation: Eco-Friendly Marketing Rep
BBCAN background: Alex Ow will be entering the BB19 house from not far away Thousand Oaks, California. The 28-year-old marketing rep plans to use her height (5’0”) and kindness as a strategy to come off as weak and non-threatening. Focusing on the end-game, she plans to fly under the radar until the stronger players are weeded out. She names Nicole Franzel as her favorite player, so that might be why this strategy sounds familiar to you.
