You might see a face you recognize when flipping through the channels this week. Louisvillian Wil Heuser will appear on Season 14 of CBS’ Big Brother, which will begin airing this Thursday at 9 pm. This is not Heuser’s first time in the spotlight however; the 24 year old tried out for American Idol Season 8 and his audition was briefly shown on the show.
Heuser also has his own channel on Youtube where he airs episodes to his show, The Wil Show. The Wil Show features Heuser singing, dancing and, most importantly, trying to make viewers laugh. It is obviously working, as his channel currently has 1,486,619 views. He also has his own website, www.thewilshow.com, where he further promotes himself and his show.
Tune in on Thursday and watch this Louisville native search for fame and maybe give Louisville a shout out or two while he’s at it. On his profile on CBS.com, Heuser shows he’s proud of his roots when answering the question, “What would you take into the house and why?” Heuser’s answer? “ A bottle of Woodford Reserve… I'm from Kentucky – Bourbon -- it’s in my blood.”
