Jeremy McGuire is one of the new “Big Brother 15” houseguests and he seems very sweet. Whether or not he can get his head in the game remains to be seen.

“I have a plan of four — two girls, two guys. That’s my plan. That’s all I’m gonna tell ya,” Jeremy tells Zap2it. “I want to have a lot of laughs in the house, so I want to see an Ian.

He’s also not against finding a lovely lady to keep company with all summer.

“I’m not opposed to finding a beautiful lady. I’ve seen a lot of beautiful women on the show. I am excited to see the females that they picked,” says Jeremy. “I do believe you need a female to go far in this game, so a showmance could be what takes me there.”

But he does recognize that he may have to play down ‘n dirty to get to the end.

“I do realize that this is a game for $500,000 and I plan to play as ruthlessly as possible to get to the end. I’m going to try to plan a clean game, until it gets dirty — and then I’m gonna jump head first into the mud. This is a game and I’m here to play it,” says Jeremy.

As for the first Head of Household competition, Jeremy says he doesn’t want to win it, but that he might not be able to help himself.

“I am a champion, I don’t like to lose, so I want to win it, but I’m not gonna try to. Throwing it is a horrible word, but I might just lose on purpose. You don’t want to put a target on your back right off the bat. You’re nominating two people and one of those people is coming back. They’re not going to have any vendettas except against the person that put them up, at least in week one,” says Jeremy.

But he adds, “You never know. I don’t like to lose. I could get up there and be like, ‘I can’t lose this!’ Ego could be a downfall for me, so we’ll see.”
