Lolo Jones knows a thing or two about competition, winning world championships in both track and bobsledding while appearing in both the summer and winter Olympic Games. But will those athletic accomplishments help her as a contestant on Celebrity Big Brother (which premieres Jan. 21 on CBS)?
Jones thinks so. “I have a potential to win this game because I love competing,” Jones told us. “I thrive off of it. I get a thrill out of challenges.” Jones’ physical prowess could give her an advantage in physical competitions in the house, but whether it will assist her in the strategic and social aspects of the game remains to be seen.
Check out the video above to watch Jones talk about her path to victory in the game, as well as the thing she fears the most about being locked in the house.
