Kevin Martin Biography
Retrieved from Global
Hometown: Calgary, AB
Occupation: Professional Poker Player
Describe yourself in three words:
Funky, fresh, and fabulous. I know my brand.
What have you been up to since being on your season of Big Brother Canada?
I have been working full time as a professional poker player. I got a major sponsorship with a poker company, I run a full time Twitch stream and I am coaching. I’m all over the poker world. It’s awesome. Big Brother Canada was a huge thing that got me going, and since then I’ve just kept building. Not to pat myself on the back but I’m very proud of the career I’ve got going on right now.
Is your strategy to win Big Brother Canada different going in for a second time?
Yes absolutely. I can recognize the mistakes I made the first time. I let my feelings get the better of me. I truly just fell in love when I was in the house. But being the strong physical player in a romantic pair is not a very good idea because when that pairing gets targeted you’ll always go first. The first time I played I thought having good social game was just getting along with everyone, but it turned out to be a little shallow. This time I want to get to know people deeper on a personal level.
If you could call one former houseguest from your season for advice, who would it be and why?
Oh my goodness! Could I get a couple phone calls? I mean the thing I want to focus on most is my social game. So I would call Sarah Hanlon. Her social game was so strong and so genuine in my season. She cut people and we all still loved her after.
What element of Big Brother Canada did you not have a chance to try before, that you’d like to experience this time around?
The end game! I went home 9th out from the end. The game changes so drastically in those final weeks, the decisions get so much more intense. I want to stick around all the way through to the end.
What perk within the game means the most to you: a letter from home, a luxury party, a season’s slop pass, or a vote from Canada?
A vote from Canada! Forget the letter from home. I mean, I care, I’m a softy, but a vote from Canada can be the real change-maker. In our format that is a huge element of how we play – in every season there’s been a massive shift caused by Canada’s vote. I need to be on the right side of that.
Which Big Brother Canada past competitor would you like to channel this season and why?
I’d put together a few. Sarah Hanlon’s (BBCAN3) social game obviously, Emmett’s (BBCAN1) physical and mental ability, and Neda’s (BBCAN2) strategic thinking. If you put that together it’s just an insane combo.
If you could travel into the future or the past which would you choose and why?
The future is way more exciting. We are on the edge of some major technological advances. I love the future and technology. I would love to know what that will be four generations in the future.
What do people from Calgary have that gives them an edge to win Big Brother Canada?
I mean, we’ve got a lot of grittiness. There’s been four seasons and no one from Western Canada has won. It bugs me – I really want to bring the title out West. People work hard in Alberta so maybe that’s how I’ll do it.
