Meet Zach Rance, one of the newest “Big Brother 16” houseguests. He tells Zap2it that his main strategy is to be beloved in the house.

“I don’t really have a set strategy going into the show, but I’m going to make every houseguest love me and they’re not going to want to send me home,” says Rance. “As soon as I come into the house I’m going to be real reserved, but very
passive and let people make their moves. I’m going to throw the first
Head of Household competition. I’m not going in guns-blazing, I’m not
going in too hot. I’m going to make people laugh and make them not want
to send me home.”

Now, you may watch this short video and think, “Yeah, right. Good luck, buddy.” But we will say this for Zach — the longer we spoke with him, the more we liked him. So he might actually have a pretty shot at being a well-liked houseguest, plus it sound as though he’s ready to rock ‘n roll.

“There’s nothing that I’m worried about. My social game is through
the roof,” says Rance. “If I have to eat slop every single day, I will. I’m here for
500,000 reasons and nothing more. I will lie, cheat, steal and kill to win this game.”

Rance also says that while he is “very single and even more ready to mingle,” he’s “not looking for a showmance.”

“I don’t want a big target. I’m going to do everything in my power not to have a showmance, but if it happens, it happens,” says Rance.

“Big Brother 16” premieres Wednesday, June 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT and Thursday, June 26 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
