  • No Indoor Voice: Dan frequently shouts in the DR.

  • Raised Catholic: Dan is raised Catholic.

Voted For (Jury): DAN

  • The Ace: Despite being the oldest houseguest of the season and the oldest houseguest in Big Brother history, Jerry still managed to make it all the way to the Final 3. Jerry is the oldest houseguest to make it that far in the game in the history of the game. That is pretty impressive.
  • Action Dad: Despite Jerry's age, Jerry was very competitive and won many competitions.
  • Badass Baritone: Jerry has an intensely gravelly voice.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: The Reason he voted for Dan to win.
  • Bald of Awesome: Has the least amount of hair.
  • Born Lucky: Managed to make it all the way to the Final 3, beating out many of the younger houseguests. This is considered to be very lucky considering that Jerry is significantly older than all of the houseguests.
  • Breakout Character: Jerry was one of the most popular houseguests of the season and was second place for the America's Favourite Juror prize.
  • Brutal Honesty: Jerry is not afraid to tell the truth, even at the expense of others feelings.

  • Deadpan Snarker: Jerry is very witty and funny.
  • Dirty Old Man: Memphis accused Jerry of being perverted for touching April's breasts.

  • Large Ham: Jerry is over the top and overly expressive sometimes.
  • Nice Hat: Jerry is always wearing a red cap.
  • Not So Different: He always went after players who went back on the word, like Dan, whom he considered a Judas, yet Dan removed his Catholic cross when he was going to go against those principles, very reluctantly and for the first time in his life. Whenever Jerry had to go against principles, he would not wear any military apparel like his hat to show he was not swearing by the Marines or serving as an example of how they would act.
  • The Resenter: Towards Dan and Memphis. He has tried to get both of them out of the game.
  • Retired Badass: Jerry used to be in the military plus he is retired.
  • The Rival: To Dan. Ever since Dan had voted out Jessie (due to America's player), Jerry held a grudge against Dan and consistently targeted him and tried to get him out of the game.
  • Screw Politeness, I'm a Senior!: Sometimes Jerry would come off as grumpy and get into fights with the other houseguests.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: Jerry used to be in the military.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Jerry started out as a sweet old man, but eventually, he started to show unpleasant behaviour.

  • Action Mom: She has her moments.
  • Arch-Enemy: Jessie. She and Jessie have never gotten along since the beginning.
  • Attention Whore: Renny seems to thrive on being the centre of attention.
  • Berserk Button: Renny absolutely hates it when somebody disrespects her age, her word, or her womanhood.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Don't piss off Renny. She will call you out big time.
  • The Big Easy: Renny is originally from New Orleans, Louisiana. It's very easy to tell that she's from there because of her very heavy New Orleans accent.
  • Catchphrase: "Dawling". Considering that she's from New Orleans, her accent makes complete and total sense.
  • The Cheerleader: Renny used to be a cheerleader and was a dancer for the NFL Saints when she was younger.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Renny is very zany, quirky and offbeat.
  • Cool Old Lady: Is the oldest female houseguest of the season.
  • Crazy Awesome: Renny is very zany, wacky and out there to the point where she comes off as completely crazy and unstable. However, her kind of crazy is of the light hearted and harmless kind and she comes across as more of Plucky Comic Relief or Joke Character than anything else. Plus, her crazy antics and behavior made her very popular with the audience.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Especially in her DR sessions.
  • Drama Queen: Can be very dramatic and blows things way out of proportion.
  • The Fashionista: Renny loves fashion and clothing.
  • Fiery Redhead: Renny is very passionate and feisty.
  • The Fool: Renny is a Cloudcuckoolander who pretty much had no clue what was going on in the game for the majority of the time.

  • Hot-Blooded: Renny is very feisty, passionate and outspoken.
  • Hysterical Woman
  • Impossibly Tacky Clothes: Many people thought that Renny's choice of clothing and fashion sense were highly questionable.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Dan, Keesha and Memphis.
  • Large Ham: Renny is very over the top.
  • Like a Son to Me: How Renny saw her relationship with Keesha. Renny openly admitted that Keesha was very much like a daughter or kid to her and she had a very maternal instinct and bond towards her. Keesha in return had seen Renny as a surrogate mother figure and she would always turn to her during times of need to whenever she needed comfort or advice.
  • The Load: Renny showed that she was very useless in competitions.
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: Renny is very loveable but she definitely has a bitchy and catty side.
  • Mama Bear: Renny is very protective of Keesha.
  • Morality Pet: Is one for Keesha. Penny would often be the one to calm an overly emotional and hot headed Keesha and give her advice. Keesha, having a close bond with Renny, would always listen to Renny and would take her words of advice to heart. Next to Dan, Keesha had the closet bond with Renny and that is why Renny had one of the strongest influences on Keesha and how she behaved.
  • Motor Mouth: Renny talks a lot.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Renny is beautiful and physically attractive, despite being an older woman.
  • Mum Looks Like a Sister: Renny looks really young to be a mother to grown up children.
  • Nice Lady: Although Renny does have a very passionate, spunky and fiery personality, she's still one of the nicest houseguests in the house. She has treated everyone nicely unless she's provoked into anger somehow.
  • Older Than They Look: Renny looks significantly younger than someone in her 50's.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Renny. Her actual name is Lorenza.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Renny is definitely one of the funniest houseguests of the season and provided much comic relief.
  • Silver Vixen: Because Renny looks so young and attractive, it's hard to believe that she's a woman who's in her 50's with two grown adult children.
  • Team Mom: Is one of the mothers of the season along with Libra. Being the oldest female houseguest of the season, she easily took on the mother/maternal role of the house. She would treat the younger houseguests, in particular Dan, Keesha, and Memphis like they were her surrogate children in the house.
  • Two First Names: Renny's first and last name could be first names.

  • Action Girl: Michelle is very competitive and even admits to being competitive as she is a Passionate Sports Girl and is highly athletic.
  • Alpha Bitch: Michelle is one of the loudest female houseguests and she can be very confrontational.
  • Arch-Enemy: Libra. The major reason why Michelle has beef with Libra is because she is one of the main reasons why Jessie was evicted. Michelle got revenge against Libra when she nominated her and was responsible for Libra's eviction.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Girl: Michelle definitely displays arrogant and cocky behaviour. She could basically be the female version of Jessie.
  • Badass Boast: Can call people like no other and is not afraid to do so.
  • The Baroness: Michelle shows spades of this. She is classified as more of the Rosa Klebb type.
  • Berserk Button: DO NOT betray Michelle in any way. Also, blindsiding and evicting Jessie was a HUGE no-no. Michelle did NOT take Jessie's eviction well at all and she ended up getting revenge and avenging Jessie's eviction.
  • The Berserker: Michelle is never afraid to get involved in an argument, a fight or in drama and she doesn't seem to care about the consequences either.
  • Big Applesauce: Michelle is originally from Rhode Island.
  • The Big Girl: One of the bigger girls in the house. She's not only tall and on the heavier set side, but she's also a very physical and athletic person.

  • Blood Knight: Has no problem with throwing herself into a fight and she is always willing to compete.
  • Braids of Action: Michelle is a highly athletic Action Girl who's a tomboy. Although she commonly wears her hair down in loose girls, she has been seen wearing her hair in a braid from time to time.
  • Brawn Hilda: Michelle is very strong, built and athletic, but her athleticism is not perceived to be appealing or attractive. People have commented that Michelle's strength and athleticism comes off as very mannish. Michelle has been frequently been called "Manchelle" because of her very unappealing, masculine physical appearance and attitude such as her masculine face, her deep, husky voice and her muscular, athletic physique. See The Lad-ette and Lady Looks Like a Dude.
  • Brooklyn Rage: Understandable considering that she is from Rhode Island. Plus, she also fits the stereotype because she's Hot-Blooded with a Hair-Trigger Temper.
  • Brutal Honesty: Michelle says exactly what is on her mind and she speaks nothing but the brutal truth.
  • Can't Take Criticism: Michelle doesn't react well when someone calls her out on her behaviour. Which sort of make her a hypocrite, because she is constantly trying to call other people out whenever she disagrees with them or doesn't like their behavior.

  • Chewing the Scenery: Really got carried away chewing out Libra. Jerry even chimed in.
    Michelle: You're a liar! You're a liar! Begone, liar!

  • Contralto of Danger: Michelle has a very deep, raspy and husky voice, which solidifies her being a tomboy. She's also highly competitive by nature as well as someone who is not to be messed with on a personal level as she's extremely passionate and Hot-Blooded and can get very carried away when she's enraged.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Michelle says the F word so much. it is part of her regular vocabulary.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Michelle is very sarcastic.
  • Drama Queen: Michelle can be overly dramatic and she has a habit of blowing things out of proportion.
  • Entitled Bitch: Michelle comes off as very entitled and everything has to go her way.
  • Female Misogynist: Considering that Michelle is One of the Boys and is a major tomboy, she has stated that she doesn't really like associating herself with other women. She's also called some of the other women in the house some very vile and derogatory names. When Libra had taken a trip from Michelle in exchange for a leotard punishment during a POV competition, Michelle went on a misogynistic rant against Libra in the DR, going as far as to say she was a bad mother who's a "slut whore skank".
  • Femininity Failure: Even though Michelle is a tomboy, she does seem to have a bit of a girly streak which would make her more of a Tomboy with a Girly Streak. However, it seems that no matter how hard Michelle tries to be feminine, she still comes across as mannish in her looks, attitude and mannerisms.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Michelle is an avid animal lover. She has numerous different pets including a dog, a couple of cats, a rabbit, a bird and three fishes.

  • Passionate Sports Girl: Michelle is highly athletic and is into sports. She also loves to watch a variety of different sports such as baseball, football, boxing, basketball and track and field. She's so passionate about athletics and sports that she even boxes and wrestles in her pastime.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With both Jessie and Memphis.
  • Protectorate: For Jessie. Jessie would often look out for her and protect her as much as he could in the game, despite the fact that Michelle was perfectly capable of taking care of herself or standing up for herself.
  • Regal Ringlets: Michelle has naturally curly hair although she does straighten it from time to time.
  • Sir Swears Alot: Michelle cursed and swore a lot. She had a rather foul mouth.
  • The Snark Knight: She's extremely snarky and sarcastic. Almost everything that comes out of her mouth makes her come across as a Deadpan Snarker extraordinaire.
  • Sore Loser: Michelle HATES to lose. When she does, she reacts like a Spoiled Brat and doesn't take it well. When Jessie ended up being blindsided and evicted, she threw a major temper tantrum, even after she won HOH. Michelle got into a fight with almost every single houseguest just because she was lashing out over being bitter about Jessie being evicted.
  • Spicy Latina: Michelle is of Portuguese-American descent, therefore, she's considered to be Latina. She most definitely fits the stereotype of Latina women since she is fiery, Hot-Blooded, tough, and passionate. However, Michelle doesn't really use her sexuality despite having a flirtmance with Jessie.
  • Spoiled Brat: Whenever Michelle loses, she acts like a child.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Her obsession with Jessie was beyond strange. She would constantly follow him around the house like a lost puppy.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Can be sweet to some people and icy to others.
  • Tomboy: Michelle is the tomboy of the female houseguests this season. While the majority of the other females in the house are more girly and feminine, such as April, Keesha, Renny, and Libra, Michelle definitely stands out from the rest of them in that she is more masculine and is One of the Boys.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Michelle is the Tomboy to April and Keesha's Girly Girl.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: If Michelle isn't seen wearing her hair down in loose curls or in a braid, then she's seen more often than not wearing her hair in a ponytail or in a sloppy, loose bun.
  • Tomboyish Voice: Michelle is a tomboy and she also has a noticeably deeper, raspier voice than the majority of the other houseguests. In comparison to other more girly and feminine houseguests like Keesha and April, who have high pitched voices, it's apparent that Michelle is much more masculine
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Although Michelle is 100% a tomboy, she does have s girly streak in that she wears makeup and likes to dress up and wear high heels.
  • True Companions: With Jessie and Memphis.
  • Tsundere: Type A. Her default personality is on the harsher side, but when she's interacting with someone she likes, then she brings out a much softer and gentler side.
  • Unkempt Beauty: Michelle wears less make up than all of the other female houseguests such as April, Keesha, Renny, and Libra. She also dresses up much less than the other girls.
  • Yandere: She seemed to show spades of this in regards to Jessie. Although, she wasn't overly psychotic or crazy over him but she was definitely veering into this territory at times. She is much more of a Clingy Jealous Girl though.
  • Younger Than They Look: Michelle is 28 but she looks much older.

  • All Women Love Shoes: April loves her high heels and stilettos.
  • Alpha Bitch: Definitely the biggest bitch in the house.

  • The Baroness: April is of the Sexpot variation.

  • Big Breast Pride: April takes much pride in how big her breasts are and does use them to her advantage.

  • Evil Counterpart: To Keesha's Good Counterpart.
  • The Fashionista: She is into fashion and clothing and loves to dress up.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Can be polite and sweet to your face, but will throw you under the bus behind your back.
  • Femme Fatale: April uses her sexuality as strategy in the game.
  • Girly Bruiser: April won a rather tough endurance HOH competition.
  • Girly Girl: April is the girliest out of all of the female houseguests.
  • It's All About Me: April is selfish and self absorbed and everything always has to be about her.
  • Ice Queen: April is very cold, aloof and icy.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: Her blue eyes are very noticeable.
  • Impossibly-Low Neckline: Most of April's clothing, in particular her tops and dresses, have a tendency to be highly low cut to the point where he cleavage is exposed.
  • Jerkass: April is a BIG TIME bitch and one of the cattiest girls in the house.
  • Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: April is the Dark Feminine to Keesha's Light Feminine.
  • Manipulative Bitch: April is very cunning and manipulative.
  • Ms. Fanservice: April is physically attractive and appealing to the male audience.
  • The Narcissist: April is very snobbish, narcissistic, arrogant and stuck on herself. All she seemed to care about was her looks and appearance. She would also use her looks and her sexuality to get what she wants. She was pretty much the female counterpart of Jessie except she doesn't seem to realize it.
  • Proud Beauty: April is very proud about her physical appearance and her looks. She likes to use her looks and her assets to garner attention and get what she wants.
  • The Rival: To Keesha and Libra.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: With both Libra and Keesha before she ended up turning on both of them and stabbing them in the back.
  • She's Got Legs: Her legs are part of her physical appeal.
  • Ship Tease: With Ollie. They had a showmance while they were in the house. Unfortunately for them, their relationship ended after the show ended and April ended up getting married to someone else.
  • Show Some Leg: There was never a time when April wasn't wearing clothes that didn't reveal her legs. Hell,it was a rare occurrence to see April wearing pants that covered her legs.
  • Sickeningly Sweethearts: With Ollie. They were into a lot of PDA, which actually turned off a lot of fans especially the live feed watchers who were seriously grossed out by their romance.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: With Ollie. Ollie comes from a very good, solid religious family and he was seemingly a nice guy. This could be considered subverted later on in the game since it turned out that Ollie wasn't exactly the nice guy that he presented himself as in the beginning.
  • Sixth Ranger Traitor: April turned on both Libra and Keesha, her two biggest allies in the game along with Ollie.
  • Smug Smiler: Whenever April would receive something that would benefit her, she would end up having a snotty, snobbish and smug smile on her face.

  • Sugary Malice: April is good at being sweet to one's face but bitchy behind others back.

  • Waif-Fu: April is petite but she is actually a reasonably strong and tough competitor.

  • 0% Approval Rating: Downplayed. Although the majority of the house doesn't like Jessie because of his arrogant and cocky personality, Jessie did have two major allies in the game at the start: Memphis and Michelle. However, the others such as Renny, Steven, Dan, Keesha, and Libra especially hated Jessie because of his arrogant attitude and they couldn't wait to get him out of the house. April, Ollie, and Jerry all voted to keep him during the week that he was going to be evicted, but not because they liked him on a personal level but instead because they all disliked Memphis and saw him as a huge threat that had to be evicted.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: He's the youngest houseguest of the season and he seriously got on everyone's nerves. People were happy to see him finally leave the house because of how much of a nuisance he was.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Jessie fits the trope strongly. He is very cocky, arrogant and full of himself. He thinks that he's the strongest competitor in the house because he's an athlete that has huge muscles. Unfortunately for him, his arrogance is what got him sent out of the house so early.
  • Ascended Extra: Like it or not, Jessie has become like a mascot for CBS, reappearing over and over and over in Big Brother for various shenanigans. He's even shown up on The Talk. Need perspective? Jump ten years ahead to Big Brother 20 and he's still there! Once a Season!
  • Asshole Victim: During Week 4, Jessie was nominated by April as a pawn against Memphis, who was supposed to be the actual target. The house was completely divided when it came to those who wanted to keep Memphis (Keesha, Libra, Renny) vs those who wanted to keep Jessie (Michelle, Jerry, Ollie, April). However, Jessie's fate was entirely in Dan's hands as Dan was also the swing vote for that week. On top of it, he was also America's Player and instead of casting his own personal vote, his vote would be America's choice. Dan ended up evicting Jessie in a blindside vote and eviction which caused Jessie to be completely shocked and stunned by his unexpected elimination. Many say that his eviction was well deserved because of his arrogant and cocky he was throughout the game.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: Jessie thought that he was the king of the house and the big bad wolf who was running and controlling everything in the game (especially when he was in power) but in reality, he was nothing more than an egotistical fool who had no clue about how much of a target he was. He also seemed completely oblivious to the fact that most of the people in the house didn't even like him personally and didn't want to work with him. Plus, he had no clue that he was going to be evicted in a blindside vote (which was cast by America by the way). So his instincts regarding the game were way off and he got outplayed. His ego sure couldn't handle it going by his eviction interview with Julie.
  • The Big Guy/The Brute: Although not tall (he's definitely more of The Napoleon trope), he is on the larger side in terms of his physique due to the fact that he is a bodybuilder.
  • Boisterous Weakling: Likes to walk around and pretend that he's so powerful and egotistical, but whenever someone calls him out on his bad behavior, he never owns up to it and decides to blame others instead of taking responsibility. Even with all of those muscles and that giant ego, Jessie is one giant weakling who just boasts and brags about how strong he is because he clearly suffers from an inferiority complex.
  • Can't Take Criticism: Jessie is so egotistical and narcissistic that he can never take it or handle it whenever someone calls him out on his bad behavior. He'll end up ignoring it or he'll just continue the exact same poor behavior. He's definitely got a strong case of little man syndrome and he never wants to admit that he may be int he wrong.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Can be very sarcastic and humorous, especially during his DR sessions.
  • Dirty Coward: Jessie constantly tries to act tough and put on a act of how strong and powerful he is, but as soon as he's called out for his stupid behavior, he never wants to admit that he's wrong or he's the one causing trouble. Jessie did this when he was eavesdropping on Libra and Keesha's conversations while he's sleeping and absorbing info and then spreading that info to other houseguests in order to cause problems and chaos. When Libra and Keesha confronted Jessie about what he had done, he couldn't even find a proper rebuttal for his stupid actions. He was instead left to be made to look like the fool he was. The guy is clearly all muscles but he actually has no courage or actual strength to face up to challenges because of his cowardly nature.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Jessie was being pushed as the villain or Big Bad of the season and he was evicted in a blindside vote of 4-3 with the swing vote being cast by America.
  • Dumb Jock: Jessie isn't the sharpest tool in the shed.
  • Dumb Muscle: Definitely not too intelligent or brainy and comes off as a meathead.
  • Emotional Bruiser: Jessie has proven that although he is a meathead jock, he does have a sensitive and emotional side as seen in his moments with both Dan and Michelle. When Dan (although acting for an America's Player task) was crying over missing his girlfriend Monica and believing that she would leave him because he was still in the house playing the game, Jessie tried to comfort Dan, assuring him that things will be okay with his girlfriend back home. Jessie even hugged Dan and comforted him. Also, when Michelle was made to wear a red unitard and was going to lose her number one ally in Jessie, Jessie comforted Michelle and assured her that everything was going to be okay.
  • Evil Gloating: When is Jessie not gloating or bragging about himself? Even if he's not making a big impact on the game, he will try to make himself seem more important and influential than he really is. Unfortunately for him, his importance is all in his head and because of his enormous ego.
  • Evil Is Petty: Jessie has a very mean and petty streak to his personality. Sometimes he likes to cause problems and drama just for the hell of it. He seems to get off on starting drama and provoking fights between the houseguests such as with Libra and Keesha by telling them that he could hear their conversations while he's sleeping because they talk so loud and spreading lies about what the two of them were saying about other houseguests in order to cause trouble. Jessie will not pass up the opportunity to act petty when it will suit him or benefit him somehow.
  • The Fighting Narcissist: Is there a time when Jessie doesn't think of himself and how perfect he is?
  • Four Is Death: Jessie is the fourth evicted houseguest and he is evicted by a 4-3 vote on top of it. A vote decided by America.
  • Gender-Blender Name: The name Jessie could be considered unisex and used for both boys and girls.
  • Handsome Lech: Jessie tries to come off as someone who is smooth with the ladies, but he's really just a try hard. He tries to be flirtatious with Michelle. However, it seems that he honestly cares more about himself and the way he looks than about flirting with her.
  • Heroic Build: He is a bodybuilder after all.
  • Hunk: Sure, Jessie is unlikeable but he is still physically attractive.
  • It's All About Me: Jessie is very entitled, selfish and self absorbed.
  • Jerkass: Jessie is very arrogant and full of himself.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Although he often displays jerkish and immature behaviour, he has shown that he has good intentions and his heart is in the right place.
  • Large Ham: Everything about Jessie is over the top.
  • Manchild: Jessie has been frequently called "immature" by his fellow houseguests, namely Renny.
  • Meaningful Name: His last name Godderz has God in it. Jessie definitely has a God complex and has the biggest ego out of anyone.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Jessie is physically appealing, despite his unappealing personality.
  • The Napoleon: Jessie may be physically built but he is short in height.
  • Narcissist: Jessie expects everyone to respect him and worship him even if he doesn't deserve it.
  • Never My Fault: Blames everything on others instead of himself.
  • Odd Friendship: With Michelle.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Michelle. Michelle was Jessie's closest ally in the game.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Has the biggest ego in the house by far.
  • Smug Snake: Oh so much. Arrogance and smugness could be Jessie's middle name.
  • Smug Super: Jessie clearly thinks he's Superman.
  • Tagalong Kid: Jessie is the youngest houseguest of the season.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Is shirtless at least 80% of the time.

  • 13 Is Unlucky: Brian was the very first houseguest evicted of the season and he finished in 13th place. Brian's game had blown up when the rest of the house had realized that he had been playing way too hard and that he was trying to make a lot of deals with the other houseguests that he didn't intend on keeping.
  • The Ace: Subverted. Brian had relationships and deals with everyone in the house but unfortunately, he got caught and was evicted as a result. If Brian didn't get caught, one could assume that Brian would have made it very far in the game.
  • Badass Bookworm: Brian is very articulate and intelligent.
  • Bash Brothers: With Dan and Ollie in the beginning.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Towards Dan.
  • The Charmer: Brian is very charming.
  • The Chessmaster: Brian was playing the entire house in the beginning.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Brian is very witty and funny.
  • The Determinator: Seemed rather determined and persistent when he really wanted something.
  • Genius Bruiser: Brian is athletic but he is also very intelligent.
  • Guile Hero: Brian often used his intelligence and his strategic sense to try to get far in the game. Unfortunately for him, the fact that he tried to use his manipulation tactics and his smarts to create alliances with many of the others managed to backfire and blow up in his face disastrously.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Dan early on.
  • Hollywood, California: Brian is originally from California.
  • Hunk: See Mr. Fanservice. Brian is very physically attractive and many of the female viewers agreed.
  • Idiot Ball: Brian played too hard, too fast by making alliances and deals with every single person in the house. Plus, it didn't help that he talked to the wrong people and he trusted the wrong people. If Brian didn't try to play the entire house and stuck to his small alliance of himself, Dan and Ollie, he could have made it very far in the game.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Jerry.
  • I Coulda Been a Contender!: Brian could have been a dark horse to win the game if he did not play too hard, too fast.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Brian is very physically attractive and he's strongly appealing to the women who watch the show. Take one look at him. Can you blame them for drooling over him?
  • Nice Guy: Despite being a manipulative and cunning strategist, Brian is a genuinely nice and good person. He just played a little too hard too fast.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Was in a very good position in the house and even had the trust and admiration of the HOH of the week, which was Jerry. But he decided to play his hand too hard and too fast and he got caught. As a result, the entire house with the exception of a couple of people went to Jerry, told Jerry about Brian playing the entire house and asked for Jerry to nominate Brian in Jessie's place.
  • One Steve Limit: Brian shares a first name with Ollie (which is Bryan), although Ollie prefers to go by his last name.
  • Perma-Stubble: Brian looks like he never shaves his face.
  • Ship Tease: With Angie.
  • The Smart Guy: Brian is very smart and he is in communications.
  • The Strategist: Brian was always strategizing while he was in the house and always scheming or planning his next move. Unfortunately, his scheming was his downfall.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: Brian is attractive with dark hair and light eyes.
  • 13 Is Unlucky: Brian is the first evicted houseguest of the season and finished in 13th place.
  • True Companions: With Dan, Ollie, Angie, and Steven.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: The first evicted houseguest of the season.
