Red Utley On Big Brother 25
Growing up, Red and his family watched Big Brother religiously. No wonder, he couldn’t contain his happiness when asked about the experience of being on the show. To Parade.com, he said, “It’s something you watch on TV, and you can sit down and you can holler this and holler out about what you’re going to do.”
Beyond the financial incentive, Red chose to be on the show to prove to himself that he can do challenging things. “I mean, it isn’t just some TV show, Big Brother is mentally and physically very, very challenging. And for me, just to put myself through that test, to show for even myself, not just my kids, that I can do it, is something big for me,” Red told Parade.com.
