Congratulations to Chapman at Sea family member Shane for making it into the cast of Big Brother Over the Top on CBS!
Shane is Joe's younger brother (or rather Joe is Shane's actual big brother) and he's always been really supportive of what we're doing here with Chapman at Sea. He recently joined the cast of BBOTT and we're super happy for him. This season of the show is completely unique because we get to watch the houseguests 24 hours a day on CBS All Access.
Like a good brother, one of the first things Shane said when he found out he was going was that he wanted to wear his Chapman at Sea shirt on the show but of course BBOTT production doesn't allow that. Still we're excited to see him getting out there and making the most of all the experiences and opportunities that come his way.
Shane currently works full time at his family's roofing business in Western North Carolina. Before that he did some modeling for a couple years and lived in California. It's been fun watching the BBOTT fans dig up his old modeling photos and share them around web. They're really thorough. They did a impressive job and pretty much found all his old modeling pics.
Here's some stuff they won't have found though - a few family shots. This little clip is from the summer when we were all together in Florida. Shane had never been on a surfboard before, so here's his very first time on a board, first time paddling, first time catching a wave...
Here's a clip from a few weeks ago with a few guys getting some nice rides. There were lots of friendly long boarders out this day and plenty of good rides to be had.
