Angie Swindell

I was reading about Korean American Angie Swindell who is going to be on this season of Big Brother and it occurred to me that for some odd reason it really doesn't matter to me how long Julie Chen has actually been hosting the show, or that she's probably the only Asian American that I can think of right now that's actually hosted a reality T.V. show for this long, and I think it really has to do with the fact that it's because the show she's been hosting is Big Brother.

I mean it's not like she's hosting Survivor or The Amazing Race - it's not even Dancing With The Stars - it's Big Brother - and while I think in some ways I should care, I don't know if I really can even if she did have the nickname Chenbot and does CBS' The Early Show.

To be honest, I don't even care enough to post a picture of Julie Chen for this post when normally if it was anyone else for any other show I would.

And while I think in some way I should feel guilty for that, I just can't seem to muster up enough guilt to really care.

Anyway - here's some more info on Angie Swindell who'll be on that show starting July 13th:

Age: 29
Hometown: Orlando, FL via Virginia Beach, VA
Occupation: Pharmaceutical Sales Representative
Marital Status: Single

Angie is a smart and sexy, Korean-American tomboy who can mix it up with the best of them. She is a recent divorcee who is happy to be single again.

Angie graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor's Degree in Advertising and is currently working in pharmaceutical sales. She has a good relationship with her parents who have been married for almost 30 years though she thinks her dad understands her better than her mother. She is a devoted sister to her mentally disabled brother. Angie is very protective of him and stands up against anyone who makes fun of her brother.

She describes herself as wild, entertaining and funny and loves to hang out with friends. Her favorite activities are working out, socializing, boating and traveling - basically anything that's fun to do. She is proud that she was the Guinness-chugging champion for women at Irish Kevin's bar in Key West. She enjoys watching college football and is a dyed in the wool Gators fan. She's also crazy about her miniature Dachshund whose name is Dixie.

Angie's ideal romantic partner is an alpha male, confident and muscular. She prefers dark hair, likes tattoos and has a few herself. She really wants to be with a guy's guy. That said, she's a romantic at heart and her favorite movie is "The Notebook."

Her birth date is July 2, 1979.
