Ragan Fox is an assistant professor of communications at Cal State Long Beach. He's also the host of a popular podcast (Fox and the City,) a performance artist, a poet, an author of two books and a gay man with a PhD in communications. In short, he's the perfect reality show cast member.
Dr. Fox is set to put his myriad skills to the test in CBS's 12th Big Brother season.
But wait, there's a twist! This season will feature a super secret saboteur whose only goal is to ruin everyone else's shot at the prize money. It's seems highly unlikely that the man with neck- accessory tastes similar to Winston Churchill will be the spoiler. Then again, crafty Fox did have this to say, in his interview with the Long Beach Press Telegram:
“I will use my gayness for good and evil.”
If his Rate My Professor reviews are any indication of his popularity potential, then Dr. Fox stands a chance of schooling the other 12 housemates and making a grab for the half a million dollars. The man has a 4.4 out of 5 in his overall rating, even though he's only a 2.4 on the easiness scale.
Add the indication that the professor is “eye candy,” according to one ex-student's ratings, and it appears that Dr. Foxy has this one in the bag.
Big Brother premieres at 9 p.m. Thursday on CBS.
