Big Brother Season 20 Swaggy C & Faysal Shafaat Are Staging A Huge Event This Weekend
Hey, fellow Big Brother fans. We’ve got some pretty exciting news for you guys in this article. It turns out that we’re about to see some big personalities from the recent 20th season of Big Brother hit up the basketball court this weekend to help raise funds for season 19 Kevin Schlehuber.
We previously reported that Kevin just had surgery back in late November 2018 to remove cancer from his prostate. The surgery went well, but I’m sure he has huge medical bills as a result of it. I’m guessing that’s what this charity event is helping to raise money for.
According to a recent report from the folks at the Orlandosentinel.com , Chris “Swaggy C” Williams and Faysal “Fessy” Shafaat are about to go head to head in a 1 on 1 basketball game to see who is the best, and you guys will be able to watch it live!
That’s right, guys. Faysal and Swaggy C actually went through the trouble of setting up a special website for you guys to watch it live! It’s scheduled to take place this Saturday, afternoon, January 5, 2019 at 4:30 pm eastern standard time. Unfortunately, it won’t be free to watch. It looks like they’re charging $15.00 to watch the game through the LIVE feed, but it’s for charity and Kevin. The website for the game is swaggyvsfessy.com. You guys can view it by Clicking Here.
Swaggy C actually made a 13 plus minute long video about the event on Youtube. It features him promoting the hell out of the event like only he can. In the video, Swaggy C constantly says there’s no question that he will absolutely smoke the hell out of Fessy in this basketball game. Then he goes on to show video footage of him practicing for the game. His skills do look pretty nice.
However, I have seen footage of Fessy playing basketball, and he’s not bad at all. One difference I really noticed between these two in their videos is that Fessy appears to have some serious jumping ability. His videos show him doing all kinds of crazy dunks. It’s insane. He also has a pretty good jump shot. As for ball-handling goes, Swaggy appears to easily beat Fessy in that department without question. Swaggy’s jump shot also appears to be cleaner than Fessy’s jump shot. So, we’ll see. You guys can view Swaggy C’s promotional video for this event over on Youtube by Clicking Here.
Additionally, Swaggy C said that the entire Big Brother season 20 Hive crew consisting of: Haleigh Broucher, Scottie Salton, Bayleigh Dayton, Steve Arienta and Angie Rockstar Lantry will be showing up to the basketball game. He said Scottie and Steve are actually going to be wearing mics and doing commentary for the game. There’s also a good chance that Big Brother castmembers from other seasons will be there. Kevin is going to , of course, be there since the charity is for him. The Orlando Sentinel mentioned that Da’Vonne Rogers from seasons 17 and 18 will be there.
Swaggy encouraged past Big Brother houseguests from any season to show up by saying he has hotel space reserved for them if they do. Any Big Brother alumni gets in for free.
The Orlando Sentinel also talked with Faysal,and he discussed his time on the show. He stated, “You live with somebody for three months, you really know that person. When you get out of the house, you know them to a T. Once you get off the show, it’s like you’re in this ‘Big Brother’ family. A lot of people like to help out others who were on the show.”
The Orlando Sentinel article also pointed out that this charity event will help support the nonprofit “Zero-The End Of Prostate Cancer” charity. Faysal talked about the charity saying, “We reached out to Zero. Their mission is to raise awareness. They want the first generation in our country with zero deaths from prostate cancer.”
Zero stresses activism to end the disease, education to save lives and support so men don’t face the diagnosis alone. Fessy also talked about how his Fessy Fitness app got lots of negative reviews from angry Big Brother fans when he did something wrong in the house.
However, Faysal says that all the negative attention ended up helping the app by making it more relevant. He explained, “I guess what happened was when people didn’t like something I did in house, they would go on my app and write negative reviews. That ended up making the app more relevant. It actually helped us out.”
Fessy also confirmed that Big Brother is not scripted saying, “I tell everyone the same thing: None of it’s scripted, but they can edit things the way they want.” During the interview, Faysal also explained how he refused to watch his season of Big Brother. He stated, “I wasn’t going to watch 30 hours of me and torture myself. I’m in pretty good standing with everybody from the show. I have no problems with anybody.
If I were to watch the show and see all the trash people were talking behind my back, I might get mad. It’s just TV in my opinion. So, I don’t really care. It’s a game show for your entertainment. I know I had a target on my back because I was the biggest dude in the house. I just wanted to be as real and as upfront with everybody as I could.”
For those of you who are wondering if Fessy and Haleigh are still dating. Their relationship looks pretty solid. They constantly visit each other and go on trips together. Fessy mentioned a little bit of why Big Brother may be better at hooking people up than ABC’s “The Bachelor and Bachelorette” shows. He stated, “Big Brother is not a dating contest, but it offers a more natural process to meet someone than The Bachelor. You have feelings for someone, you can pursue them. Nothing is forced.”
Fessy wrapped up his interview with a very sweet sentiment about Haleigh. It turns out that Fessy nearly ended up on season 19 of Big Brother, but he’s glad he didn’t, and here’s why: “Everything happens for a reason. If I had been on 19, I would not have met Haleigh.” Awww. I’m sure Haleigh will love reading that.
Again, the Swaggy C vs Fessy charity basketball game is taking place this Saturday afternoon,January 5, 2019 at approximately 4:30 pm eastern standard time. It’s scheduled to last three hours. However, the event could run much longer. Who knows? If you’re in the Orlando, Florida area, the event is at the TNT Elite Hoops gym, 1914 Edgewater Drive, Orlando,Florida. Tickets for people going in person are $25.00, and it’s $30.00 if you wait to buy your tickets at the door.
