I’d call my mom #okasan. She don’t celebrate holidays and her religion broke our family apart and they don’t accept me…but like I still love hurrr. Look how tiny she is. I loved embarrassing her so she’d laugh while covering her mouth and shooing me away. #blackanese #japegro #blasian

He even runs a company in his name ‘Campbellicious Video Productions’. In addition to professional responsibilities, the artist has a very active life. Surprisingly, he seems to an outdoorsy kind of a person by looking at his pictures of him skating, running marathons and creating wall arts, yet he admits to being a “homebody.”
Big Brother Journey
To reach the Final Three in a popular show like Big Brother as the first openly gay male contestant is an achievement in itself. He, unfortunately, got eliminated on the finale night, and the loss still stings him till date. He did manage to win HoH (Head of Household) once, Power of Veto twice and brought home a satisfactory amount of $10,000. He acknowledges that it was difficult to be the winner of a reputed show like BB for “a person like him” and also considers underestimating Jordan, his competitor, a huge mistake. Still, he celebrates the fact that he made it all the way to the end.
