Played by Kaivon McClain


Kaivon is a southern born military man and a lover of the arts.  He currently enjoys volunteerism, writing music, and even exploring screenwriting in small doses.  He is normally a quiet and reserved person other than his small circle of friends and family.  But this quiet and reserved person occasionally expresses himself quite artistically.  He had got his feet wet in a few community and school stage productions but desired to try a more challenging role when he moved to the DC Metro area.


Kaivon auditioned for BAIT during the casting of Season 1and was approved to join the team as Production Assistant.  Lee Hayes later found an on-screen role for Kaivon as "Carlos" and gave him a chance to prove his ambition.  Having been behind the scenes on the production team for BAIT Season 1, Kaivon gained more insight on becoming his character for Season 2.  Lee Hayes and Maurice Graham trained, molded, and encouraged the new actor and let him go forth on his first, but definitely not the last, on-camera experience.
