One of the highlights of the “Big Brother 14” cast is Willie Hantz, the younger brother of Russell Hantz, famed the fan-loved (and fan-hated) “Survivor” contestant. Willie tells Zap2it that the only difference between himself and Russell is that he’s going to win.
“My strategy is I just want there to be as much drama and chaos, but I don’t want it to be on my part. But I’m not going to be mean,” says Hantz. “I just want it to be where I can cause it but they don’t know what’s going on. And I’m going to try to keep as many of the crazy people in the house as I can possibly can for the longest amount of time, ’cause the more that goes on, the more it’s off me.”
Willie also tells us that he’s willing to do anything to win the money, including use his charms on the ladies even though he has a girlfriend at home.
“I’m willing to do whatever it takes to win half a million dollars. Whatever it takes. If my mama was on the island with me, or on the show with me, I would vote her out first because she would get sympathy votes,” laughs Willie. “I’ve got a girlfriend, but I’m willing to do whatever it takes. She knows that too. I told her. I said look, whatever I gotta do, you get mad, you just get mad because if I come home with half a million dollars I’m pretty sure you’ll still be here.”
But he says no to a possible showmance.
“The reason I’m not going to have a showmance is not because of any other reason than I think it puts a target on the guy’s back more than the girl’s back,” says Willie.
What do you think, “Big Brother” fans? We have to say – we think Willie could be a strong competitor. He’s smart and savvy like Russell, but he’s more likable, which was Russell’s big problem on “Survivor.”
