Bravotv.com: What do you want people to know about your family as they start watching the show?
Ben: I want everyone to see how exciting and funny my blended family is. Each family member is like a cartoon character. I also think as people watch the show they will see themselves in one of us. I also want to [use the show to] reach out to long-lost loved ones and say "I love you and we are thicker than water."
Bravotv.com: What did you think of Cyrene's would-be-suitor Josh?
Ben: He reminds me of myself when I was his age: tall, intoxicating smile -- and maybe a little too handsome. His long arms concern me: I hope he does not turn out to be an "octopus" with Cyrene. Keep your hands to yourself, juvenile! (LOL!)
Bravotv.com: Do you always ask so many questions and challenge potential suitors to basketball games?
