Born in New Britain, Connecticut, Matthew Fahey is the youngest of six boys. He caught the acting bug from his brother Jozef, who was performing on Broadway at the time. Fahey booked his first acting job in New York, playing Rory Culkin's friend in the film, "It Runs in the Family." Wanting to make acting a priority, Fahey moved to Los Angeles in 2003.
Fahey was an instant success on the big and small screen. He has been on a slew of hit television series including "Without a Trace," "Dexter," "Cold Case," "Miss Guided," "Justified," and "The Secret Life of the American Teenager." Among his most memorable guest spots was a role on Greys Anatomy, where he played Dr. Shephard's patient in the season seven opener. Fahey debuted on the big screen as 14-year old Kinsey in the film Kinsey, starring Liam Neeson and Laura Linney. He then lent his voice by playing a bully in Monster House starring Steve Buscemi.
Arguably, Fahey is best known for his role on MTV's #1 scripted and critically acclaimed show, "Awkward." as band geek Ricky Schwartz. Despite his "King of the Geeks" status, Ricky was also the undercover playboy. Whether or not Ricky stays the good guy remains to be seen. "Awkward." returns for its second season in 2012. Fahey recently did a high profile guest-starring role on TNT's hit crime drama "Rizzoli & Isles," portraying Detective Vince Korsak's son.

Hi everyone! My name is Helen Kim, and I am so excited to participate in this year's Reality Rally to support Michelle's Place. The 2013 year was big for me, because I was blessed with the opportunity to be a houseguest on my favorite reality TV show, Big Brother (Season 15) - I love politics and nothing is more political than the game of Big Brother.
Sadly less than two months after the show ended, my father passed away from a yearlong battle with cancer. I was overwhelmed by the love, support and help my family received during my father's illness, and I am so excited to participate in this year's Reality Rally to give back. Support by others, including from organizations like Michelle's Place which provides support and resources to women battling breast cancer, is so important for any individual and their families when facing cancer.
I have worked in politics throughout my career. Prior to my time on Big Brother, I was the Government Relations Manager for a large health insurance company during one of the most transformative times in our country with the passage of the Affordable Care Act (health care reform). Additionally, I have worked in government relations for the oil and gas industry and on numerous campaigns for a state official and several Members of Congress.
I received my Masters degree in political management from George Washington University and Bachelors from Washington and Lee University.
Since the show, I now appreciate the little things in life – including going out to dinner! I am happily married to Michael Fitzpatrick, and we have two wonderful boys, Henry (4) and Charlie (3). I hope to add to my growing family soon!
Thank you for visiting my profile. I am excited to be part of such a wonderful event. Last but not least - "I Vote To Evict Cancer".
My name is Kaitlin Barnaby and I am 23 years old. I was a contestant on Big Brother season 15 and was voted out pretty early in the game. I am from Minneapolis Minnesota. I now currently live in Orange County California where I attend school and occasionally bartend in Newport Beach. my experience on Big Brother was a wild ride and I'm now ready to use to my recognition and my big heart for a good cause. Especially Reality Rally, so lets all work together and raise money for breast cancer and have fun while doing it!
I was the first blonde on Big Brother Canada history, I know, that's not really interesting- but it's all I've got! I am from a small Northern Alberta oil city, Fort McMurray, and was part of the glitter gang with the well known Gary "Glitter" Levy and Suzette Amaya. I am known for volunteering myself as a pawn that ultimately lead to my eviction as the second house guest sent home-smart move-and you're welcome for the all-too-dramatic exit! I'm the one who cleaned day in and day out (clean freak!) and had the best late night party rants on after dark! If you don't remember me from Gary's infamous fashion show, I strongly suggest doing a retake! I also have some pretty serious dance moves and some outrageous kicking abilities that were nicely highlighted during my hot-headed moments in the house! I am glad to have provided some laughs as I know I had more than a few during my time on the show! I feel blessed to be part of such a unique experience and I can't wait to be part of such an amazing cause, that is very close to my heart, and take part in Reality Rally 2014!
