Openly gay Joshuah Welch, 25, of Dallas, will be among the new batch of 16 Houseguests conniving their way through CBS' Big Brother 9
Welch is an advertising media buyer who graduated from the University of Texas at Austin. His starkly candid CBS mini-bio says he "came out when he was 18 years old. He says he was a gay man who played straight growing up, playing football and having long term relationships with women.
"Things changed when he slept with his sister's cheerleading coach -- ruining her cheering career -- and (he) claims that his family has never forgiven him. He's a bit of an exhibitionist, currently considers himself to be a bisexual and doesn't care what people think of him."
Obviously not. Welch also supposedly has a "huge fear of snakes and thinks they are the spawn of Satan."
Big Brother 9, which premieres on Tuesday, Feb. 12th, also includes a contestant named Jacob from Dallas, GA.
Here's some video on Welch, who clearly doesn't have an inferiority complex. In his view, "I'm a walking soap opera."
