SouthCoast resident Matt Turner has landed a spot on the 24th season of the reality show "Big Brother" and his girlfriend has his back.

Turner recently left Massachusetts to film the cut-throat competition, which documents the interactions of 16 strangers living under one roof as they vote one another out in the quest for a big cash prize. We can now follow the 22-year-old North Attleboro native's journey to becoming "Head of Household" on CBS.

While he's gone, his girlfriend Megan Belmonte is holding down the fort at the couple's new thrift store, The Rug Shack, in Bridgewater. Turner and Belmonte are Bridgewater State University graduates.

Belmonte, a Dartmouth native, is not allowed to communicate with her boyfriend while he is in the house, which could be up to several weeks. Contestants typically aren't allowed to have any contact with the outside world.

"If he does, in fact, win the $750,000 grand prize, he will receive a letter from me," Belmonte told Fun 107.

Belmonte said she does know what Turner wants to do with the money if he wins. Turner loves "van life" and will most likely buy another van to make more travel dreams come true.

Turner and Belmonte discussed his approach before he packed up for Los Angeles.

"His main strategy is to build trust with the majority of the houseguests to seem non-threatening, but when the moment is right he will make big moves," Belmonte said.

Seems like a sound strategy if you ask me.

Of course, Belmonte had some great advice for her man.

She told him, "If you can dream it, you can do it."

It'll be fun to watch.

"Big Brother" airs Wednesday and Sunday at 8 p.m. and Thursday at 9 p.m. on CBS.
