I honestly had forgotten that Big Brother was still a show, but hey, the 16th season kicks off on Wednesday, June 25 and Tucsonan Christine Brecht, a 23-year-old Starbucks shift supervisor who enjoys Settlers of Catan, will be one of the contestants trying to win the $500,000 prize in exchange for competing in various stunts and games and having her life broadcast 24 hours a day.

Brecht seems like a great choice for the show, since she told a CBS interviewer that she's watched every episode of the series, subscribed to the online feeds and has in-depth strategies about how to survive the show through alliances. Also, she hates moths and would buy a car with her winnings.

Best of luck, Christine (although she's current under "sequester" and can't see this anyhow)! We'll keep an eye on her progress on the show.

Below the cut, two interviews with Brecht about the show and her plan to win.
