Precedent Ragan: We 'BB' fans have ourselves an online activist

by Jeremy Hooper

Ragan Fox is a slampoet, author, LGBT activist, podcaster, blogger, and assistant communications professor. And this year, he's the LGBT community's representative in the "Big Brother" house:

Big Brother Cast - Ragan
Ragan Fox-1

Name: Ragan Fox

Age: 34

Current Residence: West Hollywood, Calif.

Occupation: College Professor

Three adjectives that describe you: Funny, genuine, intelligent

Favorite Activities: Writing and performing poetry. My podcast is my biggest hobby. The show features my comedic take on pop culture and politics. I discuss everything on it.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: There is a lot of fighting and I tend to hold a grudge.

Strategy for winning Big Brother: Don't rock the boat until I have to. Float until war is declared and the floaters align with strong players who are perceived to be bigger threats. Form a secret alliance about two weeks into the game. Don't win too many competitions but don't obviously throw them.

What types of people would you NOT choose to live with you in the house: Homophobes, 18-23 year-olds (the ages of students I teach), ultra conservatives
Biography [CBS.com]

Gee, wonder if they'll put an "ultra-conservative" in with him.

*But first: A taste of Ragan (NSFW):

**Update: Another incoming houseguest, Britney, lists "gossiping with the gays" as one of her fav activities.
