Meet Ray and Kim Hardin, the parents of Big Brother 25 contestant Cameron Hardin.
Speaking of joining the show, Cameron had previously said, “Being a part of Big Brother history is incredible. Being part of the 25th season, Silver Anniversary, I can’t wait to see how nuts this gets. It means more to me that I’m a part of something in 25.”
No matter how jumbled up things get in Big Brother, Cameron was ready for it all. However, the most recent episode in September 2023 says otherwise. Cameron was taken by surprise by the housemates. His housemates eliminated Red Utley with an 8-2 vote. However, Cameron and Bowie Jane were the only contestants to vote against the other contender Jag Bains.
On Thursday, the housemates participated in a memory competition in which they had to recall color sequences that were displayed in various movies (the topic was absurd, so let’s not even bring it up). The winner of Head of Household was Cameron Hardin, who was obviously furious with his fellow residents for surprising him with the Red Utley vote.

Who Are Big Brother Star Cameron Hardin Parents?
Big Brother star Cameron Hardin was born to his parents Ray Hardin and Kim Hardin. Born in March 1988, he is 35 years of age as of 2023 making him the youngest of their three children.
In 2023, CBS, Big Brother revealed the 16 brand-new house guests for its 25th season, one of whom is from Central Georgia. On Wednesday, a stay-at-home father from Eastman named Cameron Hardin joined 15 other house guests in the live, 90-minute premiere of Big Brother.
Cameron intends to stay in the house for the remaining 14 weeks in order to win the $750,000 grand prize. The cast for this season comprises an Australian DJ, a Deaflympics gold medalist, a brand strategist, a geriatric doctor, a professional flutist, and an exterminator. Because he views himself as athletic, intelligent, and able to forge bonds with others, Cameron is convinced that he can win the game. While he is upbeat about what he can do in the game, he does have one area where he believes he might have trouble once he gets inside the house.
Before joining The show, Cameron was a stay-at-home dad.
Meet Ray Hardin, Big Brother Star Cameron Hardin Father
Big Brother star Cameron Hardin’s father is called Ray Hardin. Ray was born to his parents Mr. Roy “Bud” Hardin and Sarah S. Hardin.
Ray lost his father on 17 February 2014 at the age of 88. Other than Ray, Roy was also survived by his daughter, Betty Hilliard; stepsons, Randy Smith (Cindy) and Bruce Smith (Amy). He was preceded in death by his son, Royal Douglas Hardin.
Talking about Ray, he is 63 years old and went to Dodge County High School and then Cameron University. He is working as a head football coach at Dodge County High School. He has four decades of experience and teaches health, P.E., and Drivers Ed.
Ray has served as the head baseball coach and is presently serving as assistant head coach and linebacker coach for the Indian football team.
Ray also served as the head football team strength and conditioning program and he will be an assistant track coach.
After serving on numerous staff and managing an athletics program at a middle school, Ray didn’t land his first head football coaching position at a varsity high school until he was 61 years old. When he was hired as Dodge County’s head coach in early June 2021, he had a strong resume.
The happiness persisted despite the pressure and annoyance brought on by seven losses by fewer than ten in two seasons. But after almost 40 years of coaching, the wear and tear began to show, and part of the wear and tear was the amount of time required.
“I’m home,” he said. “I just feel honestly it got to the point where I want to step back a bit. That’s really it for me.” After much deliberation, Ray felt it was time to focus on his family and submitted his resignation as the head coach of Dodge County in February 2023.
“I’m still not sure I’ve decided, to be honest with you,” Ray said. “It’s just a difficult move. You do something for almost 40 years, and one of your philosophies is ‘don’t quit, don’t quit, don’t quit.’ So it’s hard to, you know, quit. It’s hard to say that word and do it.”
