Name: Howard Overby

Age: 29

Hometown: Hattiesburg, Miss.

Occupation: Youth Counselor

Marital Status: Single

Three adjectives that describe you: Observant, trustworthy and reliable.

Favorite Activities: I love playing city league flag football and softball. I love to mime and do drama skits at church. I love to read and take walks in the park or just be outside. I love to fish and hunt and shoot guns at the gun range. I love love love board games, especially Monopoly.

What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the “Big Brother” house? Nothing except being away from my church on Sundays.

Strategy for winning “Big Brother”: I will use intelligence without showing I’m as smart as I am and I will befriend people to get to know them and use their strengths and weaknesses against them - no matter how or what I have to use to get what I want to make my plan work.

Which past “Big Brother” cast member did you like most or least? Jason from season 2 because he was representing for the men and played a great game to the end. I didn’t like Lisa from season 3.

What are you afraid of? I hate spiders and big birds.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? I was the first person in my immediate family to graduate from college after receiving a full athletic scholarship.

Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… to conduct myself in a manner that is worthy of “Christ” and to live abundantly and share it with others.

What would you take into the house and why? 1. My Bible, because it’s my guide on how to live and love 2. My head phones and iPod because I have to have my music and 3. My XBox because it keeps me competitive and calms me.

What would you do if “Big Brother” made you famous? Man, I would share it all on some level with the less fortunate and my family because I’m tired of them struggling. We would get some businesses started. Plus, I finally want my mom and sisters to ride a plane and go somewhere beautiful where there are no mosquitoes.

He seems like a nice guy but we might have a God Player on our hand. To bad we don't have any gay guys in the house...I mean that would have been actual social interaction...but Allison is more interested in hook up, fights and meatheads.

Hey, anyone remember when this show was a social experiment?

DIBS. Just gonna get her before Sphinx!

He seems nice yeah, not sure how knowledgable he is. He seems alright, on the fence but CORRRRR, I wouldn't play a good game if I was in the house with him...

Don't really understand his likes and dislikes for the past contestants...

06-20-2013, 01:07 PM
Yeah I'm not sure if Sphinx will love the bible thumper...

And wow...Jason was representing for men...Didn't even see that before..WTF does that even me?

Okay I'm changing me vote...I call arrogant D-Bag.

Adorable. And those shoulders/arms. I will enjoy watching him :)

Nice eye candy, and he really seems nice.

One word.... YUMM!

There is a gay guy this season, so expect quite a few controversial discussions on the live feeds.

Social experiment? That went out the window a long time ago.

I know a black guy that would have been more entertaining if they had to cast the token black.

Nice guy but, BORING!

06-20-2013, 07:55 PM
Totally on the fence with this one... I really want to like him, but his plan for winning by playing the game straight & not lying will be VERY hard to do!! I can see him doing well, and he is def eye candy for me!!!

I don't care for this one. Turned on the video and heard mumble mumble mumble blah blah blah.

06-21-2013, 03:53 PM
I feel the same, TK. He's fairly boring. Not very enthusiastic when he talks. Sheesh. But he does seem super nice.

I can't follow him talking because he has no voice inflections. IF he tries to play this morally as he claims, I'm down watching because it could get interesting when he realizes he can't play it morally.

He could either be a Jameka, someone religious who play for God, a Whamber, a psychopath who uses God as an excuse, a Dan..someone who uses religion to manipulate people or one of those religious people who force their views on others...

I hope he isn't a nice religious person...BORING haha

As much as I dont really care for this guy, it's hard not to root for him since he lives 30 minutes away lol. I'm actually interested to find out if he lives in the city of Hattiesburg or a surrounding little town. At least I can relate to someone on the feeds when they talk about where they're from I guess.

Ooo wow. So close? That's cool!

That's like Dan - who lives 30 minutes from me, too.

I really hope Howard can get out of the dog house before he gets evicted. Seems like a pretty good guy...

I hope Howard wins HOH tonight and puts Amanda on the block! Drama!

That would be interesting ... we would get to see the real Howie, and I assume Candace would move into the HOH Room with him. And there would be a lot of scrambling. Spencer would become even more of a pig knowing/thinking he's safe.

I would like Howard to leave, but he could add entertainment on his way out the door. Who would he nominate, Amanda and Elissa?

Sad to see Howard go. He was finally coherent at his exit interview.
