HOH Evicted Under: MCCRAE (in Week 1)

  • Adorkable: David is very quirky and offbeat. It seems as though David completely out of it most of the time, but this quality about him makes him much more endearing and loveable. His exit interview after he was the first one evicted shows a genuinely nice guy.
  • Badass Adorable: David is endearing because he is very quirky and upbeat. But he is also very adorable when he is being competitive and showing off his skills. He did this during the Have Not competition when he was trying to show off his water skills to Aaryn in attempts to impress her. It worked.
  • Boy Next Door: David is the classic all American nice guy. He is the classic Surfer Dude who hails from California and he seems to be very friendly, sociable and outgoing.
  • Brutal Honesty: David is very honest and opinionated and doesn't hesitate to say exactly what he thinks. Have you seen David's Twitter? It is Truth Tea Central.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: David is really offbeat and quirky. To many viewers, David came off as downright weird and some couldn't even understand his mannerisms, his speaking manner and his general personality. Interestingly enough, many of the houseguests didn't think David was too weird in regards to personality, they just saw him as a huge physical threat.
  • Deadpan Snarker: David is pretty funny albeit in a strange way.
  • The Ditz: A male version of course. David has shown that he is not the sharpest tool in the shed and seems like he is constantly out of it or completely unaware of what is going on most of the time.
  • Dumb Blonde: He spent so much time trying to spell a long word (the word in question being "Competition") that he ended up not spelling anything in the Veto. He seems a lot more intelligent outside of the house during interviews.
  • Dumbass Has a Point/Genius Ditz: In all fairness, that word would have been more or less a guaranteed win. He just was so fixated on trying to find the letters for it (rather than getting every letter you can and trying to make the biggest word out of it) that he wound up making an Epic Fail.
  • Dumb Jock/Dumb Muscle: He fits all of the criteria of a jock who doesn't have that much in the way of brain matter. Not only is he completely unaware of what is going on in the game, but the guy could not even find the proper letters during a spelling competition. It could be assumed that even if he did find the appropriate letters to spell the word, he probably would have spelled the word competition incorrectly anyways. David is not the sharpest tool in the shed.
  • Expressive Hair: David's hair is rather noticeable. Some even questioned whether or not David owned a comb or hairbrush, his hair was always wild and all over the place. The only time when David's hair looked normal was when it was wet.
  • The Fool: David had no idea what was going on in the game and was complete unaware of everything that went on around him. He was even unaware of all the racist things Aaryn said according to interviews.
  • Genki Guy: David is very upbeat. He seems to also be highly energetic and athletic and seems to like moving around a lot. David is also a Motor Mouth and cannot seem to stop talking; he is also very animated when he talks.
  • Genius Ditz: David is a very strong competitor but he seems to lack in the brains department. David would probably ace physical competitions in the game such as endurance competitions but if he had to compete or win mental competitions (such as the POV comp which was a spelling competition), then David is most likely doomed.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: David clearly dislikes Judd because Aaryn had become close with Judd in the house. David bashed Judd on his Twitter although one probably could think that David was doing all of that for attention.
  • Hair of Gold: David has blond hair and is generally a Nice Guy. He is a little on the odd side, but ultimately, his heart is in the right place. Unfortunately for him, David does have a rather Horrible Judge of Character, especially in regards to Aaryn.
  • Heroic Build: David is not as built as Howard or even Jeremy, but he is definitely athletically built and he is rather ripped.
  • Hollywood, California: David originally hails from San Diego, California.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: He thought Aaryn was a sweet Girl Next Door from the South. Yeah, that was totally off. Perhaps not so horrible a judgement in that he never really saw most of her comments in the house. And who would ever have thought that a 22 year old college-educated, "sweet" Southern girl could behave like this? We were also surprised at the beginning.
  • Hunk: David is physically attractive and is one of the manlier houseguests along with Howard and Jeremy.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: To match his Hair of Gold.
  • In-Series Nickname: "Ken".
  • Keet: Is this during interviews. In the house though, he seemed to be much quieter and more introvtered. Although, maybe he was this way so that he wouldn't be a target or come off as too brash, cocky or unlikeable.
  • Like Is, Like, a Comma: David says the word "like" a lot when he is talking.
  • Lovable Jock: David is athletic as he swims and surfs.
  • Messy Hair: David's hair is very...interesting.
  • Motor Mouth: Once David gets going, he can't stop.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Along with many of the male houseguests of the season, David is physically appealing.
  • Nice Guy: Despite his association with mean girl Aaryn, David is generally a nice guy.
  • No Indoor Voice: David sounds pretty loud during his DR sessions.
  • The Pollyanna: David is very positive, enthusiastic and upbeat.
  • Romance on the Set: With Aaryn.
    • Ship Sinking: Aaryn and David never got back together after she was evicted, and Aaryn instead fell in love with a man named Nick Williams.
  • Shocking Elimination: David was completely blindsided when he was voted out over Elissa by a 7-5 vote. The entire house wasn't even expecting it so much that the house was completely in shock and went quiet after David left.
  • Shonen Hair: See Wild Hair, Expressive Hair and Messy Hair.
  • Surfer Dude: David is a lifeguard for a living.
  • Tall Poppy Syndrome: The Moving Company wanted him out because he was a physical threat.
  • Too Dumb to Live: David: got knocked out right away because he just had no clue how the game worked. He also had the bright idea that there would be only one person on the eviction block this summer when Julie mentioned a twist. If that were the case, voting wouldn't matter at all, because whoever was on the block after the Veto meeting would automatically be out.
  • Totally Radical: David talks like the typical California Surfer Dude. Some question whether or not David has any other vocabulary other than the word "like".
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: David was shirtless at least 90% of the time.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: First houseguest eliminated and hardly got any screentime without Aaryn by him. However, he got to appear on TMZ when they did an expose on Aaryn's Innocent Bigot comments and David was there to comment on his disapproval and his unwillingness to put up with Aaryn in a relationship.
  • Wild Hair: David's hair approaches Frank Eudy's levels of wild.

HOH Evicted Under: AARYN (in Week 2)

  • Adorkable: Nick had some endearing qualities and his quirkiness added to it.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Much like Shane from the previous season. He tends to push away GinaMarie's advances while subtly flirting with Andy and David.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Some of the house guests question Nick's sexuality and whether or not Nick is gay.
  • Anti-Hero: Type III.
  • Ascended Extra: Crossing into Retroactive Recognition territory. Nick may not have had much chance to do wonders in the Big Brother house, but simply performing mad science experiments in guest spots as a chemist, Nick is very beloved. He managed to really give us a fine showing on America's Got Talent with an awesome nitrogen explosion onstage along with the classic trick popularized by Adam Savage of Mythbusters fame of demonstrating the effects of voice-lowering gas sulfur hexaflouride during Season 12 in 2017, and you might mistake him for just another contestant on the show due to his smattering run on Big Brother not sticking in memory. But ironically, Nick also got eliminated when he was passed over on judge cuts (neither strategic wits nor his real life skills got a win in a competition, poor guy!), yet he managed to go out on a funny note. He also appeared on The Today Show. You can also check him out on Nickipedia, his very own YouTube channel!
  • Attention Whore: (Sorry Nick!) He is one of the people of this season that will lengthen his 15 minutes of fame. One of his apex is that he created a tour (which is baffling and solid at the same time) that will begin after the finale of Big Brother (because one of his tour consists a date with GinaMarie, who made it to the jury).
  • Badass Normal: Not many houseguests know how to cause crazy feats of science. One can only wonder if he had lasted longer on the show or had ended up on a season with America's Player missions what kind of mayhem would have ensued in the house if he orchestrated scientific pranks!!
  • Bash Brothers: With Howard, Spencer, Jeremy and McCrae, his fellow Moving Company allies.
  • Big Applesauce: Nick is from New York, New York.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Had this towards Jeremy and McCrae.
  • Bishōnen: See Hunk, Mr. Fanservice, Tall, Dark, and Handsome and Pretty Boy.
  • Camp Straight: Nick is clearly heterosexual however, he does seem to display some qualities that make others question his sexuality or whether or not he is gay.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Nick comes off as really offbeat and quirky.
  • The Charmer: Nick had some endearing qualities. The online clip of his first performance on America's Got Talent even calls him the "Charming Scientist".
  • Chick Magnet: Both GinaMarie and Jessie were attracted to Nick.
  • The Chessmaster: Was shaping up to be one until McCrae and Spencer betrayed him.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Nick was always scheming and strategizing and he always had a plan of some sort regarding the game.
  • The Dandy: Nick seemed to care a lot about his physical appearance. Some fans described Nick as metrosexual.
  • Deadpan Snarker: His DR's tend to be rather sarcastic and humorous.
  • Death By Genre Savvy: Unfortunately, his genre savviness resulted in Helen and Candice immediately figuring out that there was an all boys alliance... and causing him to go out.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Nick is the second evicted houseguest and finishes in 15th place. Yet, he was set up as one of the most dangerous.
  • Embarrassing Last Name: Nick's last name is Uhas, which could easily be mistaken for Uhaul, which is the name of a moving company (ironic, considering that Nick created the alliance called The Moving Company).
  • The Face: Of the Moving Company.
  • Foreshadowing: Unintentionally provides some.
  • Genius Bruiser: Nick is athletic but he is also vert intelligent.
  • Guile Hero/Manipulative Bastard: A cross between the two. Nick depended on strategy and his intelligence during the game.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: Andy has commented that he thought that Nick was the cutest or most attractive boy in the house.
  • Hero of Another Story: These days, Nick is more known for being a YouTube personality over his time on Big Brother, and most recently, for his epic performance on America's Got Talent. He was lucky in that he escaped the infamy of this season in that he went out so early and actually found much more fame by dazzling people with stuff like blowing up Howie Mandel! (Not really, Nick simply concocted a harmless dry ice vapor burst) Oh, and he also rollerbladed across the globe! Maybe he and Cameron Heard (microbiologist who biked cross-country) should get together sometime!
  • Hunk: One of the more dashing men in the cast this season.
  • I Coulda Been a Contender!: Nick was a favourite to win preseason but unfortunately, he didn't live up to expectations.
  • In-Series Nickname: "BIG".
  • In Touch with His Feminine Side: Andy comments that Nick wore pink underwear and showed it to him. Also, Nick is a bit of a metrosexual. Part of the reason why many of the house guests constantly question Nick's sexuality.
  • Keet: While in the house, he appeared to be rather icy, emotionless and stoic, because he was trying to hold back his personality and avoid giving people too much of a read on him. Outside of the house, however, Nick has been seen to be highly energetic, enthusiastic and even manic to some fans, especially in his interviews. He also tells fans in his "how to" guide for auditioning to be on Big Brother that you have to be yourself times ten in your audition, which he did. And on America's Got Talent, he was hamming it up like crazy.
  • Knight Templar: Nick can be rather ruthless.
  • Large Ham: Especially during his DR sessions. He is so over the top in his actions and his expressions.
  • The Leader: Of The Moving Company.
  • Lovable Jock: Nick is very athletic but is also a generally nice guy. The opposite of Jeremy, who is more of a Jerk Jock.
  • Mad Scientist: In real life, Nick loves to do all sorts of mind-blowing experiments, like microwaving objects, dry ice, and more.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Nick is much more sensitive and laid back while Gina is more aggressive and outspoken.
  • Mistaken for Gay: Some of the houseguests often questioned whether Nick was really gay or not considering that Nick used to openly flirt with some of the male houseguests such as Andy and David.
  • Morality Pet: For GinaMarie. She has a soft spot for Nick and he prevents her from going over the edge.
  • Motor Mouth: Once Nick starts talking, he can't shut up. He almost sounds manic when he talks.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Nick is appealing to the Big Brother female viewing audience.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: Nick is not as athletically built as Howard and Jeremy.
  • Nice Guy: Nick is a nice guy albeit being a bit offbeat and quirky.
  • No Guy Wants to Be Chased: Nick didn't like it when Jessie was chasing him in the house.
  • No Indoor Voice: Nick sounds extra loud during his DR sessions.
  • No Social Skills: A very mild version of this. Nick is not anti-social but he can be rather socially awkward around others at times. Which bite him in the ass as Elissa (who was weighting him and Kaitlin) decided to MVP nominate him, because he didn't give her a clear answer to vote off Kaitlin.
  • Odd Couple: With GinaMarie.
  • Odd Friendship: With GinaMarie.
  • Perma-Stubble: Always seemed to have a 5 o'clock shadow.
  • The Pig Pen: According to Elissa, Nick hardly showered.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With GinaMarie.
  • Pretty Boy: See Hunk and Tall, Dark, and Handsome.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Nick has been seen wearing pink items of clothing.
  • Sacrificial Lion: Leader of the most powerful alliance in the house, one of the biggest physical competitors of the season, evicted week two. His eviction would also lead to the collapse of the Moving Company and a complete switch-up of the power in the house.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: The Savvy Guy to GinaMarie's Energetic Girl.
  • Scars Are Forever: In his audition for the show, he displayed his scars from wiping out while rollerblading on numerous occasions.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Nick is the Sensitive Guy to Howard and Jeremy's Manly Man.
  • Ship Tease: With GinaMarie, oh so much. Those two were attached at the hip, and his elimination sent GM spiraling into madness, and is one of the reasons why she became such a monster in the game. In fact, Nick's very belongings were treated as TragicKeepsakes and GinaMarie got very upset when Aaryn coveted them just to aggravate her. Finally, Nick chose to enjoy a date with GinaMarie at the end of the game.
  • Shocking Elimination: He and Helen topped early game predictions.
  • The Smart Guy: Nick graduated with a 3.92 B.S. Biology (Pre-Med Major), Minor in Economics at Yale University.
  • Spiky Hair: His signature hairstyle. Goes with the whole Mad Scientist vibe.
  • The Stoic: Nick never showed much emotion. According to Andy, Nick came off as cold and icy.
  • The Strategist: One of the most strategic players in the game. Unfortunately, it came to bite him in the behind.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome/Tall, Dark, and Snarky: He's physically attractive with dark hair and eyes, and is quite sarcastic.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Nick let McCrae sweet-talk him into dropping out of the first HOH competition on the grounds he wouldn't be put on the block or backdoored in the next week. Well, GUESS WHAT?
  • Too Powerful to Live: Nick was incredibly well-rounded and one of the biggest intellects in the house, but he got backstabbed when he was seen as far too powerful for his own good.
  • Unfortunate Name: His last name Uhas could easily be mistaken for Uhaul.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Nick would walk around shirtless from time to time, giving the female Big Brother fans a treat to view.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He had the potential to be a strategist that would make Dan Gheesling proud, but he was evicted before he could even try to dominate the game.

HOH Evicted Under: HELEN (in Week 3)

  • 0% Approval Rating: Downplayed. Jeremy is nowhere near as hated as many other contestants this season, but he earned a ton of dislike in the house for shamelessly stealing all the wine from the Have-Nots and drinking it and showing a no f**ks given attitude about it. He is directly responsible for ruining David's, Nick's, and Kaitlin's games as their ally, and was the third boot of the season just to be rid of him because of how selfish he was.
  • Abusive Parents: On the live feeds, Jeremy confessed to Elissa and Helen that his father used to punch him in the face when he was younger.
  • Affably Evil/Faux Affably Evil: Jeremy is capable of being fake polite to your face, but talking behind your back and plotting your demise.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Many of the female house guests, most notably Kaitlin, Aaryn, and Jessie, were drawn to Jeremy, who was this season's resident bad boy.
  • Alpha Bastard: Jeremy is very egotistical and cocky.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Jeremy's ethnicity doesn't appear to be totally Caucasian, however, this could be due to the fact that Jeremy has tanned complexion. Jeremy also says that he is 1/16th Cherokee Indian.
  • Ambition Is Evil: Jeremy was highly determined and competitive.
  • Anti-Villain: Type I or Type II.
  • Anything That Moves: Jeremy has said that if it were up to him, he would want to sleep with every single female houseguest in the house.
  • Arch-Enemy: Elissa. He hated her and constantly targeted her since the very beginning.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: He doesn't practice kung fu or any martial art, but he's got the personality down to a tee.
  • Asshole Victim: Jeremy was his own worst enemy and the reason why he was evicted. If he was nicer to people, he probably would have lasted longer in the game.
  • Attention Whore: Jeremy loves being the center of attention.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: Jeremy's full name almost seems like he's been named after the character, Jerry Maguire (who Tom Cruise portrayed).
  • Bad Liar: Jeremy is one of the worst liars in the house.
  • Beauty Is Bad: Jeremy is attractive but he is a Jerkass, very egotistical, cocky and arrogant.
  • Believing Their Own Lies: Jeremy would lie quite a bit. Problem is, Jeremy believed his own delusions.
  • Berserk Button: Attacking him personally is a sure way to get Jeremy angered. Also attacking Kaitlin will make Jeremy go off.
  • Big Eater: Jeremy was the biggest eater in the house.
  • The Big Guy/The Brute: Jeremy is the tallest houseguest this season at 6'5", towering over all of the girls and being comfortably taller than almost all of the guys.
  • Big Man on Campus: Jeremy thought of himself as this but it was only in his own mind.
  • Blood Knight/The Berserker: Jeremy is very competitive and always wants to win every competition.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Jeremy is outgoing, brash, bold, and cocky.
  • Brutal Honesty: Jeremy's honesty often gets him into trouble, hence why he was evicted so early in the game.
  • The Bully: According to many houseguest, primarily Helen and Andy, Jeremy displays bullying behaviour.
  • Can't Take Criticism: Comes with having an overblown ego and being too cocky.
  • The Casanova/The Charmer/Chick Magnet: Jeremy is a womanizer and seems to enjoy lots of women.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "My dude" and "FLABBERGASTED!"
    • Don't forget "Cherokee Wonder."
  • Celebrity Resemblance: To Taylor Lautner, as pointed out in the very first episode. Not only that, but in episode 2, Jessie mentioned how she liked both Nick and Jeremy, and explicitly compared it to Twilight, with Jeremy as the Jacob in this scenario (and Nick as the Edward).
  • Combat Pragmatist: Jeremy is the type to play or fight dirty in order to win.
  • Commitment Issues: Jeremy openly said that he is not good at serious, long term romantic relationships.
  • Competition Freak: It's not that Jeremy has won tons of competitions, but it's that Jeremy is extremely competitive by nature and even calls himself a "champion at heart".
  • Condescending Compassion: Showed this towards numerous houseguests.
  • Control Freak: Jeremy likes to be in control of everything and everyone.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: According to Jeremy, he comes from an abusive household.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Jeremy is very sarcastic and witty.
  • Deep South: Jeremy hails from Texas.
  • The Determinator: Jeremy is one of the most determined and persistent people. He is not the type to quit or give up and he is very much a fighter.
  • Dirty Coward: Stole wine and hid it from the Have Nots so that he and his friends (i.e. David, Aaryn and Kaitlin) could drink it all. When the Have Nots discover the situation, Jeremy decides to lash out and bully the Have Nots.
  • Distracted by My Own Sexy: Jeremy thought a lot of himself and he was rather egotistical.
  • Does Not Know How to Say "Thanks": Jeremy's ego is too big for him to show or give gratitude.
  • The Dragon: For Aaryn. Aaryn was the Big Bad and the main villain of the season and Jeremy was basically following her orders and doing what she wanted.
  • Drunk with Power: When Jeremy gains any kind of power, he becomes very cocky and arrogant and resorts to bullying behaviour.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: Constantly demanded others to respect him, yet did nothing to warrant respect from others.
  • Dumb Jock: Doesn't appear to be overly intelligent or logical in his thinking.
  • Dumb Muscle: See Dumb Jock.
  • Entitled Bastard: Definitely comes across as this both on the show and on the feeds.
  • Enraged by Idiocy
  • Everything Is Big in Texas: Everything about Jeremy is big. Everything from his height to his ego.
  • Even Jerkasses Have Standards: Didn't like the racist comments said by Aaryn and Gina Marie.
  • Face of a Thug: Jeremy's face is rather intimidating.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: Jeremy likes to dub himself as the "Cherokee Wonder" but he doesn't really live up to his own hype.
  • Fool for Love: In regards to Kaitlin. It was clear that Kaitlin and her influence brought out a much gentler and softer side out of the normally cocky, macho and arrogant Jeremy.
  • For the Lulz: Jeremy often made comments or committed actions which might have been deemed inappropriate to others for his own amusement. An example was Jeremy wiping his butt with Elissa's hat.
  • Freudian Excuse: He was beaten by his father according to him on the live feeds.
  • Gentle Giant: Only when he was around Kaitlin. Around everyone else, he was definitely more of a brash and cocky individual.
  • Glory Seeker/Glory Hound: Jeremy has a huge ego and seeks constant glory.
  • Grumpy Bear
  • Heel–Face Turn: Jeremy became slightly nicer before he was evicted.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Nick.
  • His Own Worst Enemy: Jeremy's mistreatment of other house guests has lead to his ultimate downfall in the game.
  • Hot-Blooded": Jeremy is very impulsive and hotheaded.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: The Huge Guy to Kaitlin, Jessie and Aaryn's Tiny Girl.
  • I'm a Man; I Can't Help It: Jeremy blames all of his poor actions and decisions on the fact that he is male so he can't help himself.
  • Implausible Deniability: Jeremy pretended or denied at first that he didn't take the wine to drink with his friends, even though the other houseguests knew that Jeremy (and by extension Aaryn) was behind it. Jeremy did later confess that he did take the wine though.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: Often talks about himself and how awesome he is probably because deep down, Jeremy has a lot of issues and is actually insecure.
  • Innocent Bigot/Innocently Insensitive: Jeremy says some comments which are deemed highly offensive which he believes to be said in humour or sarcasm.
  • Insufferable Genius: It's not that Jeremy is overly smart or a genius by any means, but he constantly brags about his skills and how great and talented he is.
  • In-Series Nickname: "CHEROKEE WONDER" and "The Sailor".
  • Irrational Hatred: Had this towards Elissa. Jeremy really hated her.
  • It's All About Me: Jeremy can be very selfish ("Red Wine-gate" for example) and self-centred.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Even though Jeremy knew that his game was pretty much done, he still wanted Kaitlin to do well for herself, go far in the game and bring the money home.
  • Jerkass: Jeremy can be very arrogant, selfish and cocky towards others.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Despite being a jerk, there are times when he has been actually rather logical and strategic.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Although he displays highly jerkish behaviour, he seems like he has enough humility and heart to admit when he's in the wrong and that he needs a lot of growing up to do. He also seems to genuinely care for Kaitlin. Too bad when the time that Jeremy started to become nice, his first impression and his competitive nature made himself evicted.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: He wiped his naked butt with one of Elissa's hats. That action was considered so revolting by production that they actually pulled him aside and told him he was going to be expelled if he tried anything as bad as that again.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Jeremy's abusive upbringing makes it easy to shine a sympathetic light on him.
  • Jerk Jock: Jeremy is very cocky and arrogant. He is the contrast to Nick and Howard, who are Lovable Jock's.
  • Kick the Dog/Kick Them While They Are Down: As if Elissa wasn't picked on and targeted by all of the other houseguests enough, Jeremy took one of Elissa's hats and wiped his butt with it.
  • Knight Templar: Jeremy can be rather ruthless.
  • Ladykiller in Love: With Kaitlin. Despite being a womanizer, Jeremy genuinely cared about Kaitlin.
  • Large Ham: Jeremy has a very big personality and overblown ego.
  • Lazy Bum: Although Jeremy was competitive, he also showed that he is rather lazy around the house and spent his days either eating, sleeping or lounging around with Kaitlin.
  • Love Redeems: His romance with Kaitlin. Jeremy openly admits that his relationship with Kaitlin managed to change him as a person and influenced him to be a better individual.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Jeremy is actually rather cunning and manipulative.
  • Manchild: Jeremy is rather immature. He even admits that he has a lot of learning and growing up to do.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Jeremy is almost always shirtless.
  • Narcissist: Comes off as self-interested and in love with himself. He could give Jessie from Big Brother 11 and Big Brother 10 a run for his money in terms of who has an overblown ego.
  • Never My Fault: Puts the blame on others for his behaviour and his actions.
  • Nice Hat: Jeremy is always wearing a cap.
  • Noble Demon: Especially later on before he was evicted.
  • Odd Couple: With Kaitlin. Their showmance was just really weird and over the top at times.
  • One Head Taller: With almost every single female houseguest, especially Jessie, who is the shortest girl in the house. Jeremy basically towers over every female houseguest, even the ones who are on the taller side.
  • Open Mouth, Insert Foot: Sometimes Jeremy talks when he shouldn't.
  • Passive-Aggressive Kombat: Jeremy often resorts to being passive aggressive towards others in order to gain something from others or a situation.
  • Pride: Jeremy admits that his pride is his biggest vice.
  • Rated M for Manly: Jeremy is one of the most masculine houseguests of the season.
  • Really Gets Around: Jeremy is heavily flirtatious with all of the ladies including Aaryn, Kaitlyn, and Jessie, but he ended up setting his sights on Kaitlyn in the end and they became a short term showmance.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Jeremy is the Red to Nick and McCrae's Blue.
  • The Resenter: To Elissa. He has had it out for her since the beginning of the game.
  • The Rival: To Elissa and Helen.
  • Romance on the Set: With Kaitlin. They were in a showmance in the few short weeks that they were together in the house.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Jeremy is the Manly Man to Nick and McCrae's Sensitive Guy.
  • Sickeningly Sweethearts: With Kaitlin. Shows the most PDA out of any couple this season.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Jeremy curses and swears a lot.

When she's evicted, she even admits that she didn't agree with the behavior of those she was aligned with and even said that she chose the bad or wrong side.

HOH Evicted Under: AARYN (in Week 5)

  • 100% Adoration Rating: If there is anybody from this season who actually has a chance of being invited back someday, it's this guy. Howard is very well liked both inside of the house and outside of the house. He was one of the fan favourites of the season and he was even in the Top 3 houseguests to win the America's Favorite Houseguest prize. Howard was so well liked that all of the houseguests felt sad when he was evicted. And unlike so many others, ironically the quietest of the cast walks out of the house and is met with DEAFENING cheers and applause because the studio audiences loves him that much, and some are even shouting out his name in support!
  • 100% Heroism Rating: Howard was The Hero of the season. He was very nice and kind to all of the houseguests, even if they treated him poorly.
  • Adorkable: Howard's shyness is very endearing and makes him more loveable.

  • All-Loving Hero: Howard never showed any hate or malice towards any houseguest, even those who have hurt him or bothered him.

  • Arch-Enemy: Amanda. Amanda had been targeting Howard for weeks.
  • A Father to His Men: Howard cared about all of his allies, including his Moving Company members and even those outside of his alliance. Howard was often the one who kept his Moving Company allies in check.
  • A Friend in Need: For Candice. Howard was a support system for Candice and was there for Candice when she went through a rough time.
  • Bad Liar: Howard is the WORST liar ever. Probably because lying goes against Howard's morals and values.
  • Badass Baritone: Has a very deep voice.
  • Badass Beard: A combo between this and Badass Mustache.
  • Badass Mustache: Howard doesn't have a full moustache but it's somewhat noticeable.
  • Badass on Paper: Howard seemed like he would be a strong physical threat in the game but it turns out that he was a huge disappointment on a game play level.
  • Bash Brothers: With Spencer, Jeremy, Nick and McCrae. Howard, along with all of them, were part of an all guys alliance called The Moving Company. Spencer was Howard's number one ally in the game other than Candice.
  • Being Good Sucks: Howard is the nicest guy ever, yet he was ostracized and looked down upon by the majority of the other houseguests.

  • Black and Nerdy: Howard may be athletic but he does have spades of nerdiness, especially with how intelligent and articulate he is.

  • The Bore: While Howard is a good and nice guy, most live feeders found him very boring and dull.
  • Brains and Brawn: Howard is the Brawn to Spencer's Brains.
  • Bruiser with a Soft Center: Although Howard is an athletic and muscular big guy, he's very gentle and shy.
  • Butt-Monkey: Howard was ostracized in the house because of his connection to Candice, who was basically the house target.
  • Chick Magnet: All of the female houseguests in the house, including Elissa, Jessie, Candice, Helen and even Aaryn and GinaMarie either like, love or respect Howard. The only exception is Amanda, although the reason why Amanda didn't care for Howard is because she saw him as a huge threat in the game for her. Not only did Howard have all the love from the girls, but he is was also loved by the guys as well (Judd, Nick, Spencer, McCrae, Andy, Jeremy, etc).
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Howard constantly felt the need to help others.

  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": Howard hates to be called "Howie".
  • Doomed Moral Victor
  • Elimination Or Eviction By Racism: Averted. Aaryn's nomination of Howard as well as his eviction wasn't motivated by race but there are quite a few viewers who would view it this way with Howard being evicted under Aaryn's HOH reign.

  • Ensemble Dark Horse: One of the most popular house guests of the season.
  • Epic Fail: His speech to the other houseguests was so bad that even Spencer called him out on it.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: McCrae admitted in the DR that he's not gay, but if he was, he would want to "tear Howard apart."
  • Extreme Doormat: Howard lets others walk all over him. The major reason for this is because Howard openly says that he has a major anger problem and that he doesn't want to lose his temper in the game.
  • Genius Bruiser: Howard is The Big Guy and very athletic, but he's rather intelligent and articulate.
  • Gentle Giant: Howard is the most muscular guy in the house but he is very kind, noble and good hearted.
  • Genre Blindness: Knowing that Big Brother is a game about having good social skills, Howard doesn't seem to understand that not being sociable is definitely one way to guarantee that you make yourself an easy target.
  • Good Is Not Dumb: Howard is actually very intelligent and well spoken.
  • Good Samaritan: Howard is always lending a helping hand.

  • For Great Justice/For Happiness: Basically Howard's motto in life.
  • Foreshadowing: When the nicest guy in the house and The Hero of the bunch got evicted fifth, you could tell viewers were in for one hell of a season.
  • Friend to All Children: Howard councils young people for a living.
  • Friend to All Living Things
  • Get Out!: On the live feeds, this happened. His scariest moment in the house was a tense emotional breakdown in front of one of the mirrors after he got blindsided and holed himself away from everybody. Feeling broken and betrayed, Howard wept and held himself over the dresser, chanting several quiet prayers, shaking, and panting angrily. He was holding back a ton of anger, and when someone walked in to check on him, his immediate response was an almost murderous "GET OUT."

  • Heroic Spirit: Has it more than anyone in the house and it is something that motivates him in the game.
  • Heroic Willpower: Despite all of the racist behaviour and comments which was occurring in the house, Howard still manages to keep calm, cool and collected without blowing up on all of the houseguests or those who were spouting racist comments (i.e. Aaryn, Kaitlin, GinaMarie, etc).
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Spencer. Spencer was Howard's number one ally in the game. See also Bash Brothers.
  • Hidden Depths: Howard actually has a huge anger problem and had problems controlling his temper in the past. Who would have thought that Howard, who is so calm, cool, collected and stoic, who have an anger management problem?

  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness/The Conscience : Howard is BY FAR the nicest, kindest, noblest and most genuine houseguest of the season. He never got corrupted by the dark side or gave up his morals and values.
  • Iron Woobie: After the mattress fight between Aaryn and Candice, Howard is calming both Candice and himself down, knowing the Howard himself have anger issues in the past, it is hard to see someone like him struggling and holding on.
  • In-Series Nickname: Howie", in which only Candice calls him.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: For Candice. Howard was always there for Candice whenever she needed someone or whenever she was going through a rough time emotionally.

  • Last of His Kind: Howard was the last houseguest to be evicted before Jury began.
  • Lawful Good: Howard is the most noble houseguest by far.

  • Magical Negro: Seemed to be one for Spencer.
  • Magnetic Hero: Outside of the house, Howard was very popular with many viewers.
  • Manly Tears: Whenever Howard cried, a thousand hearts would break. Much of his crying in the house would come after he or Candice were being severely mistreated by some of the other houseguests due to their race and the both of them being the Black houseguests.
  • Messianic Archetype: Howard was seen as the Big Good of the season because he had strong morals and values. It helps that he's strongly religious and is a man of faith and God.

  • Mr. Fanservice: Howard is very physically fit and often walks around the house shirtless.
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: Subverted. Howard is very athletic, fit and muscular but his muscles did nothing to help him in physical competitions or when he needed to win competitions to secure his safety. One would expect such a fit and athletic dude like Howard to win tons of competitions especially comps of a physical nature.
  • Nerves of Steel: Howard always kept his cool and never lost his temper, despite having anger issues in the past.
  • Nice Guy: OH SO MUCH. Howard could he the Trope Codifier. Howard is kind, caring, compassionate, understanding, empathetic and non judgemental. His good personality and his kindness was one of the many reasons why everyone in the house loved and respected him as well as why he was very beloved and popular outside of the house.
  • Nice Hat: Howard is sometimes seen wearing a hat of some kind.
  • No Social Skills: Many people, primarily live feed watchers, find Howard to be incredibly socially awkward and boring because of it. But considering the horrible manner in which he and Candice were treated, it's to be expected. His only true friend in the game was Spencer and that's because Spencer was his ride or due and his #1 in the house.
  • Only Sane Man: Out of the houseguests this season, Howard was definitely one of the saner and more stable ones.
  • The Quiet One: He's quite the opposite of Dan, Joe, and Peter - even in the diary room he speaks with a rather quiet tone! His voice is very soft and peaceful.
  • The Paragon: Howard was the most moral and upstanding houseguest.
  • Perma-Stubble: Always sported some hair on his face and never had a clean shaven face.

  • The Stoic: Doesn't show much, if any, emotion in the house and always keeps his emotions in check.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality
  • Taking You with Me: Is more than willing to become a Have Not just to see Aaryn and Gina Marie suffer. Too bad that Mc Crae is amazingly horrible in that challenge.
  • Those Two Guys: With Spencer. They were Bash Brothers and Heterosexual Life-Partners who were each other's #1 ally in the house.
  • Too Good for This Sinful Earth: Oh Howard. He was mistreated so badly in the house, mostly because of racial issues and tension, and when he left, it was so incredibly sad to watch. The fact that he left under the HOH of Aaryn the openly racist houseguest, makes it even worse.
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension/Will They or Won't They?: With Candice.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Much like his fellow Moving Company members Nick and Jeremy, Howard is often seen shirtless.
  • Where Da White Woman At: Howard has admitted that in most instances, he is more drawn to white women.
  • Women Are Wiser: Subverted. Howard is male but he's one of the most sane and stable people in a house filled with crazy and emotionally unstable women such as Amanda, Aaryn, GinaMarie and even Candice, who was significantly more impulsive and irrational than Howard.
