Jury Vote: VOTED FOR DERRICK

  • 0% Approval Rating: A lot of people in the house found Victoria completely annoying and intolerable. The only people in the house that seemed to like Victoria were Nicole and Derrick. During the week that there were no Have Nots and all of the beds were going to be free to use, Zach had said that nobody in the house wanted to sleep in the same bed as Victoria. Brittany commented that she didn't like Victoria because she found her to be a Drama Queen who was incredibly high maintenance and a ton of work to be around. Amber didn't like Victoria because Victoria was always catty and jealous towards her. Hayden wasn't a fan of having Victoria around because she seemed to display Clingy Jealous Girl tendencies around him and he was in a romantic relationship with Nicole. Christine hated Victoria because she found her annoying and useless in the game. Frankie used to like Victoria at the beginning but he started to see her as nothing more than a pawn to be put on the block repeatedly. Zach despise Victoria on a personal level and a game related level (even though they had plenty of sweet moments together). He has repeatedly stated how much he dislikes Victoria because she's useless and dumb. It didn't help matters when Victoria ended up cutting up Zach's pink hat in order to get revenge against him for the way that he treated her. Caleb just found Victoria annoying and a nuisance. Derrick was probably one of the only people in the house that genuinely liked Victoria and treated her like a younger sister. Despite this, it's clear that he was just using her for his game and he was manipulating her.
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Seems to be one for Derrick. Victoria seems to have a major crush on Derrick, but Derrick doesn't like Victoria in that way. He sees her as more of a sister. Plus, it is obvious that in some of their interactions with each other, Derrick gets downright tired of Victoria. However, it's later shown that she doesn't have a crush on him; he's just her only friend left (as she hates Cody), and is largely upset that their alliance doesn't have a name.
  • Action Fashionista: Victoria loves makeup, dressing up and she is also proven to be a strong competitor.
  • Action Girl: See Action Fashionista.
  • Action Survivor: She is more this than an Action Girl since Victoria is not that strong at competitions. Let's also not forget that she was put up on the block an insane TEN times in a row, practically bench-warming the eviction block the entire season, and it took that long to finally get her out of the house.
  • Adorkable: Victoria can be very endearing at times.
  • All-Loving Hero: If you see her as a hero. Despite Frankie targeting her at every turn, and constantly being used as a pawn, and that associating with Nicole could hurt her game, she's forgiving and nice to everyone. Except Christine. Joey's video after leaving the house confirms that Victoria is genuinely sweet and nice.
  • All Women Love Shoes: Victoria loves shoes, especially high heels. She even joked she wanted her Eve costume to come with 4-inch heels when Caleb said they had to go barefoot for 48 hours as part of the getup.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Has shades of this. Sometimes Victoria can come off as aloof and out of it.
  • Anti-Hero: Seems to be a Type II and Type III.
  • Arch-Enemy: Christine. Part of Victoria's hatred is because of Christine's hateful personality and obnoxious laughing, but another part of the reason Victoria has disdain for Christine is because Victoria doesn't like Christine's close friendship with Derrick. Meaning that Victoria felt threatened by Christine in regards to Derrick.
  • Ascended Extra: Is Out of Focus for the majority of the season. Yet lately seems to be gaining more screen time as of Week 9 thanks to destroying Zach's favourite pink hat and also falling ill from dehydration and wisdom teeth issues.
  • Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Her interactions with Zach. They seem to have a love/hate relationship.
  • Axe-Crazy: Victoria cut up Zach's favourite pink hatnote  to get back at him for teasing her. The edit she got while doing this was rather negative and made her look crazy, vengeful and psychotic.
  • Badass Adorable: Victoria has her moments. She can be very endearing and feisty at the same time when she wants to be, although in terms of the game, she is actually one of the weakest by far, especially in comparison to the other female houseguests who are stronger such as Nicole, Amber, and Christine.
  • Badass Boast: She has her moments. Victoria has been seen to stand up for herself when she has to and she has made some threats, in particular against Zach. Victoria threatened that if Zach didn't stop teasing her, she was going to take the pink hat that she had given to him and destroy it. Turns out that she lived up to her threat and destroyed Zach's pink hat to get back at him.
  • Badass Israeli: Subverted. Victoria is originally from Israel and she is also one of the weakest female competitors in the game alongside Jocasta. Victoria likes to think that she is a very strong competitor and has made it far in the game because she believes she is a competition beast, but the reality is that Victoria has made it far in the game because she has been carried by Derrick and is basically looked at by the audience as a major floater.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Victoria wears clothing and tops that reveals her midriff.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me:
    • Her reason for wanting to take Derrick to the final two. Derrick also wants to take her to the final two, but for less kind reasons.
    • She also becomes friends with Nicole before her second eviction; being friends with Nicole seemed suspicious to the others, but she got along well. This is likely because they were both ostracized from the rest of the house bar Derrick, as most non-Detonators are. Or because they both hate Christine.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Zach. Many fans notice their obvious chemistry in their interactions with each other.
  • Berserk Button: DO NOT mess with Victoria by personally attacking her or crossing her. She will go off.
  • Betty and Veronica: Is set up to be the Veronica to Nicole's Betty and Hayden's Archie via Manipulative Editing. In reality, Hayden cares more about Nicole, and Victoria just wants friends. This aspect is quickly dropped after a couple of episodes.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Victoria is generally nice, but she is definitely not to be underestimated.
  • Big Applesauce: Victoria is originally from New York.
  • Big Eater: Victoria loves eating.
  • Big "WHAT?!": Victoria pretty much did and said this when she found out that Frankie was the brother of her fave singer and mega pop star Ariana Grande.
  • Birds of a Feather: With Zach. Both are Jewish and are from Florida.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: One of the meanest girls in the house along with Christine.
  • Braids of Action: Victoria sometimes wears her hair in a braid.
  • Break the Cutie:
    • Victoria was constantly nominated and put on the block and had to keep fighting to stay in the game. Victoria was constantly being used as a pawn. But ultimately, she subverts this after vowing to keep positive and not go out negatively.
    • Subverted at one point; after Derrick forsakes her, she goes crying to Frankie about it, softening him up and getting him to guilt Derrick. The confessionals reveal that she was just faking it.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Victoria is the weakest competitor and a much less bigger threat than some of the other houseguests who are considered to be very mentally and physically strong, yet some houseguests were very afraid and fearful of taking Victoria to the end of the game out of fear of her making it all the way to the Final 2 in a chance that she could possibly win the game. Players like Cody, Caleb and even Derrick often felt fearful of dragging Victoria to the Final 3 or Final 2, because they all felt that the jury might be on the bitter side and would actually vote for Victoria to win the whole game out of bitterness and spite.
  • Butt-Monkey: Victoria is repeatedly used as a pawn or nominated, and (as with most non-Detonators) is mostly isolated and locked out by the others. The producers also love to give her bad edits to make her look weaker and dumber than she actually is.
  • Can't Hold Her Liquor: When Victoria gets drunk or consumes too much alcohol, she becomes very out there and weird.
  • The Chew Toy: See Butt-Monkey. Victoria is never taken seriously by anyone in the house or even the viewers.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Showing shades of this in regards to Derrick. She has even openly stated that she hates Christine's friendship with Derrick and that she hates when Derrick hangs out with Christine. Victoria almost sounds like a clingy, jealous girlfriend or wife.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Victoria is very out there, offbeat and quirky.
  • Cool Loser: Shows shades of this, even though she comes off as a spoiled and rich princess.
  • Cool Shades: Wears sunglasses.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Victoria comes off as dumb, ditzy and useless, but she could very well make it to the end unless she gets picked off. Nobody is really particularly targeting her.
  • Cute and Psycho: Many fans, especially those who watch he live feeds, find Victoria to be obsessive, overly clingy and even a bit stalkerish in regards to Derrick. See Yandere, Abhorrent Admirer, and Stalker with a Crush.
  • Cute, but Cacophonic: Many fans say that Victoria's voice can be very annoying especially during her DR sessions.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: Shows shades of this in the first week.
  • Cute Mute: Victoria can be very endearing but she can also be super awkward.
  • The Cutie: Along with Nicole, Victoria is rather loveable.
  • Daddy's Girl: Victoria has said that her dad would do anything for her.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She has her witty and humorous moments. One example, Jeff said that he never thought she'd make it to the final three. She responds that he might be jealous because he never made it to the final three, and he had two tries.
  • Death Glare: Gives many of these to those she either hates, dislikes, or is jealous of.
  • Delusions of Grandeur: Victoria thought she got far in the game by being a strong competitor and good player. The reality is, Victoria got where she was in the game solely because of Derrick dragging her that far.
  • Desperately Craves Affection: Victoria seems to need constant attention from others. She grows out of this near the end, as she remains content in the fact that a) she's making it to the end, and b) Derrick is still nice to her.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Did this when she evicted Amber, Brittany and Zach.
  • Distaff Counterpart: Could be considered the female version of Spencer Clawson of Big Brother 15. Both were floaters and useless in competitions and both made it all the way to the Final 3.
  • The Ditz: Victoria comes off as rather shallow.
  • Dogged Nice Girl: Victoria is starting to display shades of this in regards to Derrick. She has shown that she is rather clingy and possessive of Derrick and has even downright admitted that she hates Christine's closeness with Derrick. See Clingy Jealous Girl.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": Victoria hates to be called Vicky.
  • Drama Queen: Victoria can be rather dramatic at times and she will resort to using the sympathy card when she has to. Ironically, as the Detonators turn on each other and self-destruct, she mostly just stays out of the drama.
  • The Dragon: Could be seen as this for Derrick.
    • Co-Dragons: With Cody, Frankie, Caleb and Christine for Derrick.
    • The Creon: Had no desire to take over Derrick's role as she's happily okay with following Derrick around and following his orders.
    • Noble Top Enforcer: She's arguably much nicer and less ruthless than Derrick. However, she doesn't have a rather mean and catty side to her personality.
    • Number Two for Brains: Victoria is not very smart and is actually rather useless in the game. It's safe to say that Derrick is the brains of the operation and that he has in fact carried Victoria in the game.
    • Villainous Friendship: Victoria has a close relationship with Derrick, due to him being the only one in the house who doesn't isolate her.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: Victoria feels that she never has the respect from the others in the house and that she is looked at as a joke.
  • Entitled Bitch: Sometimes acts very spoiled and bratty when she doesn't get her way.
  • Establishing Character Moment: When Victoria destroyed her own hat to get back at Zach then showed the torn up hat to Zach in her goodbye message to him.
  • Extreme Doormat: For Derrick. Victoria seems to be blindly loyal to him and she does everything that he says. Though when Derrick is about to throw her on the block, she very clearly tells him she lost trust in him.
  • The Fashionista: Victoria is very girly and loves fashion.
  • Fake-Hair Drama: Victoria admits that she wears long hair extensions because she has a hair condition in which her hair has fallen out. Her real hair is actually shoulder length.
  • Faux Action Girl: Victoria calls herself "Competition Princess" when she is by far, one of the weakest female competitors of the season along with Jocasta.
  • Feigning Intelligence: It's obvious that Victoria is not very smart and that she needs Derrick's advice in the game to make her look the least bit competent.
  • Foil: To Christine. Both are accused by the other guests as being useless (Christine) or floating (Victoria), and are often used as pawns for The Detonators. But Christine is generally mean, while Victoria is generally nice. Victoria also had darker hair, skin and clothes, while Christine has lighter hair and skin, and will wear brighter colors.
  • The Fool: Victoria is rather clueless in regards to the game and is also useless as well. The main reason that Victoria is still in the game is because of Derrick.
  • Forgot About Her Powers: She works as a photographer, which requires a a degree of memorizing backgrounds and details. Despite actually being very talented as a photographer, she utterly fails at competitions that require those details.
  • Genki Girl: Seems to be very upbeat.
  • Genre Blind: Does Victoria know that as a female, you never put all of your devotion and trust into a guy (Derrick) who probably has an alliance with the other guys and the house and would choose them over you? Did she not watch Britney's season of Big Brother 12?
  • Girl with Psycho Weapon: Victoria seems to handle a lot of sharp objects, in particular knives.
  • Girly Bruiser: Has shown that she is a tough competitor.
  • Girly Girl: Victoria is very girly and feminine.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Victoria can be a nice girl but do not mess with her or cross her. She will kick your ass.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Victoria has a jealous and catty side.
  • Graceful Loser: Even when she's on the block and facing elimination, she's always respectful of whoever is also on the block, and lets the people voting know that she isn't holding it against any of them.
  • Hair Decorations: Victoria is always seen wearing a headband.
  • Hat Damage: Victoria destroyed her pink hat, which was worn by Zach all season, to get back at Zach for teasing her. Too bad the Jury gifted Zach with one of his very own for his birthday, leaving poor Victoria hat=less.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Becomes this with Nicole.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Consistently has blind trust in Derrick despite the fact that he is running the house and has side alliances with everyone.
  • Hot-Blooded: Victoria is passionate, spunky and feisty.
  • Hypocrite: Victoria criticized Christine, who is married, for flirting with Cody constantly, yet Victoria doesn't seem to have a problem flirting or showing inappropriate behaviour towards Derrick, someone who is also married. Though according to some in the house, Victoria is more of a hanger-on who seeks his approval, rather than trying to flirt.
  • The Idealist: Very gullible and naive, that Victoria.
  • Idle Rich: Averted. Although Victoria comes off as a princess who is spoiled and entitled, she actually works as a photographer for a living.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: Originally talks a big game about her looks, how she was the hottest girl in the house, and how she could ride on her looks. After Dark specials reveal that her hair used to be longer, but "it all fell out" in the shower one day. It's a major source of insecurity for her, and possibly why she's always looking at herself in the mirror.
    Victoria: I can't look at my hair without extensions. I hate myself.
  • The Ingenue: She's innocent, but also a bit of an airhead with a penchant for becoming a pawn.
  • Irrational Hatred: For some reason, Victoria really hates Brittany, Amber, Jocasta, Christine, and Cody but especially Christine. One could assume that Victoria hated Amber and Brittany because she was jealous of the fact that they were both attractive and beautiful women. Victoria hated Christine because she felt threatened that Christine was trying to come between her (Victoria) and Derrick's friendship and Victoria even admitted that she was jealous of Derrick and Christine's relationship. Victoria also hates Cody because he is very close to Derrick and she has said that she doesn't like that he flirts with all of the women in he house.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Victoria says that she would sacrifice her own game for Derrick or so that Derrick would go far.
  • Jaw Drop: Victoria dd this when she discovered that Frankie was related to Ariana Grande. She also did that when she learned Derrick lied about being a smoker just to tease her.
  • Jewish American Princess: She fits all the qualities; spoiled, rich and entitled.
  • Jewish and Nerdy: Averted. Victoria appears like she is a rich princess but if you really observe her in the house, she is kind of socially awkward and doesn't really "fit in" with the others. Many go the houseguests kind of shun her, so she does come off as a nerd who doesn't fit in. Not to mention that physically, Victoria has a nerdy look to her.
  • Jewish Complaining: When Victoria is not complaining about something, she's either shown eating or crying.
  • Joke Character: Her strategy mainly seems to be a floater, despite the strategy becoming more and more difficult to use when there are less and less targets to hide behind.
    • Lethal Joke Character: And yet she made it to the final three. Dr. Will says that she's probably one of the best floaters out there. Multiple houseguests stated how they would have voted for Victoria if she made it to the final two.
  • Kawaiiko: Victoria displays childish and cutesy behaviour. She comes off as very immature and child like in her behaviour, attitude and actions.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Victoria destroyed her own pink hat which she had give to Zach to get back at Zach for teasing her. And she did this when Zach was on the block and already going home.
  • Last of His Kind: Victoria was the last remaining female houseguest standing.
  • Like Brother and Sister: Her relationship with Derrick.
  • Living Prop:
    • Basically for all 10 weeks of the game. What exactly has been Victoria's purpose on the show other than being Derrick's lap dog or puppet?
    • Eating. Most episodes would only show token glimpses of her, usually just eating cereal. It's lampshaded later on.
  • The Load: As much as she tries, Victoria has not won a competition on her own. Her only "win" was in a POV reward competition in Week 6 in which Caleb traded the Power of Veto medal to Victoria (allowing her to remove herself from the eviction block) in exchange for a $5,000 prize. Victoria's worst performance came in the Week 8 POV, in which she was unable to match all of the comic book covers within the 35-minute time limit.note  Despite the fact that she had no chance of winning (or perhaps, because of it), she hasn't been a true target by the other houseguests (mainly being used as a pawn if anything); Derrick has even said that he wanted Victoria to stick around to the final three.
  • Long Hair Is Feminine: Victoria wears long hair extensions. Her real hair is actually shoulder length.
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: Victoria is a bit of a spoiled princess.
  • Master of None: Victoria has a weak social, strategic and competitive game and it is very surprising that Victoria has made it as far as she has, considering that she is not particularly good at anything in the game.
  • Minion with an F in Evil: Victoria may be a puppet for Derrick and she may be intense;y loyal to him but she is not as immoral as the others who work for Derrick, such as Christine, Caleb, Frankie, Cody, etc.
  • Morality Pet: To Zach. Victoria has told Zach that although Zach tries to play the part of the villain, she can see that it is nothing but a facade and that deep down, she believes that he is a genuinely good-hearted person.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She was very attractive in the outfit she wore in the season finale.
  • My Greatest Failure: Victoria says that her biggest failure in the game is her inability to win a competition single handedly.
  • Odd Couple: With Zach.
  • Odd Friendship: With Derrick and Zach.
  • Only in Florida: Victoria currently resides in Florida.
  • Out of Focus: To the point where it's become common to say "Who's Victoria?" Plus, she hasn't been targeted since Week 1, simply because nobody has mentioned her name.
  • The Pawn: It is very clear that Victoria really is nothing more than Derrick's puppet.
  • Perky Female Minion: To Derrick.
  • The Pig Pen: Victoria doesn't wash her hands after using the washroom, has poor eating manners and etiquette, and doesn't shower too often. Gross.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Her favorite color is pink.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Derrick.
  • Playing the Victim Card: Victoria's role in the game seems to be playing the victim. She eventually weaponizes it to pull off a Wounded Gazelle Gambit.
  • Plucky Girl: Victoria is very optimistic and idealistic.
  • The Pollyanna: Victoria is upbeat and positive.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Victoria is strongly aligned with Derrick, but isn't anything to balk at when she's not following his orders. She does exactly everything Derrick tells her to do and essentially, Victoria is actually rather harmless.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: Seems to be developing a bond with Nicole.
  • Sanity Slippage: Victoria had a major one when she decided to destroy Zach's favorite pink hat (which she had given to him) all to spitefully get back at him for constantly teasing her.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Victoria is the Energetic Girl to Derrick's Savvy Guy.
  • Ship Tease: With Zach and Hayden.
  • Silk Hiding Steel: Appears aloof and ditzy most of the time but when she is crossed, she is not to be messed with.
  • The So-Called Coward: Victoria is often looked at as useless in the game because of her inability to win competitions.
  • Spoiled Brat: In the beginning, she went on a tantrum about hair extensions.
  • Stalker with a Crush: In regards to Derrick. She seems to follow him everywhere around the house.
  • Tag Along Kid: The youngest houseguest in the house during this season, along with Nicole.
  • Take That!: Gives one to Caleb, saying "You make big moves, and you go after me."
    • She says the game is about loyalty. "It’s not like back-stab you one day, then tell everyone your sister’s a superstar the next day and everything is fine."
  • Tender Tears: Victoria gets emotional quite often when she thinks people don't like her. Derrick indicates that he puts up with her crying a lot and acting like her older brother as a shoulder to cry on so it will help build trust between them. This comment is mixed in with scenes of her whining and sniffling in the outdoor hammock with him.
  • Those Two Girls: First with Nicole and later on with Christine.
  • Token Good Teammate: Of the Detonators. Some members of the Jury expressed thoughts about voting for her if she made the Final 2, because she didn't backstab or lie constantly.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Derrick.
  • Upper-Class Twit: Victoria comes off as very ditzy but she seems like she comes from a well off family.
  • Vanity Is Feminine: Victoria constantly looks in the mirror.
  • When She Smiles: When Victoria smiles, it is rather infectious.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: Victoria is very idealistic and ditzy with her head in the clouds.
  • Yandere: Seems to be a minor one for Derrick. She constantly follows him around the house and obviously has a major thing for him, despite Derrick being married.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Victoria is seen wearing long, knee high socks.

Jury Vote: VOTED FOR DERRICK

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Amber feels this way about Caleb. Although Caleb strongly likes Amber, Amber has made it clear she doesn't like Caleb and is even annoyed by him.
  • The Ace: Caleb is huge physical threat and has won a total of four HOH's this season.
  • Action Guy: Caleb is very competitive and has won multiple HOH's this season.
  • Adorkable: Sometimes Caleb's awkwardness, especially around the opposite sex, make him somewhat endearing. Plus, he has some very funny moments.
  • Agent Peacock: Caleb is strong, muscular and physically competitive, but he is very metrosexual and takes care of his physical appearance. Definitely not on Frankie's level though.
  • Aggressive Submissive: Caleb is shown to be very aggressive when it comes to pursuing the opposite sex but when it comes to the physical aspect of a relationship, Caleb admits he's a huge softy and a big romantic.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: In regards to Caleb's feelings for Amber. Caleb likes (more like obsessed with) Amber, but Amber only sees Caleb as just a friend at best.
  • Alpha Bastard: "I'm the King of the house."

  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Caleb thinks he's the king of the house in his own words.
  • Asshole Victim: Caleb is his own worst enemy.
  • Attention Whore: Definitely not as much as Frankie, but Caleb can be very attention seeking and he seems to yearn for fame and recognition. He's even said that he links himself to Frankie because his sister Ariana is both hot and famous.
  • Ax-Crazy: The way Caleb was portrayed in regards to his relationship with Amber. The show edited Caleb to look stalkerish, psychotic and insane. Some fans even said that they felt scared for Amber born in the house and outside the house.
  • A God Am I: Caleb seriously thinks that he is the best player and that he is the "king" of the house.
  • Badass Boast: Probably the biggest braggart in the house.
  • Bald of Awesome: After he shaves off all of his hair due to a BOTB punishment.
  • Bash Brothers: First, with Devin and later on with Frankie, Derrick, Cody and Zach. Caleb's biggest ally in the game is Frankie.
  • Beauty Is Bad: Despite his awful personality, Caleb is physically attractive. However, he can also be a little vain, as shown during Week 7, when he seemed to dislike the thought of having to shave his head (as part of a Battle of the Block competition in which the nominated houseguests had to knock down dominoes with assigned punishments in order to win, in which he and Victoria also had to wear Adam and Eve costumes) maybe a little more than having to be handcuffed to Victoria for one week.
  • Believing Their Own Lies: Caleb seriously believes the stuff that is coming out of his mouth.
  • Bespectacled Bastard Boyfriend: Caleb has also shown that he is controlling, aggressive and a dominant male who likes to have control over Amber. One can assume that Caleb is this way outside of the house with the opposite sex as well. In addition, he also wears glasses or spectacles from time to time as a fashion statement.
  • Berserk Button: Amber rejecting him.
  • The Berserker: Caleb seems to throw himself in competitions with everything that he has, even if it hurts him.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Has this towards Zach and Cody. He has a close brotherly relationship with the both of them considering that he was in an alliance with the both of them since the beginning. He also views them as younger brothers that he looks out for and protects in the game.
  • The Big Guy: Not in a height sense, but he is very muscular and built.
  • Birds of a Feather: With Devin. They are both muscle heads with big egos.
  • Bishōnen: Caleb is very attractive and has model features. He is a cross between this and a Hunk.
  • Bastard In Sheeps Clothing: Caleb has a not so pleasant side which is very arrogant, cocky and full of himself.
  • Blood Knight: Caleb has shown that he has a very strong competitive side. Also seems to have an affinity with hunting.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Caleb is very bold, cocky, arrogant, and brash.
  • Brainless Beauty: Caleb is very physical attractive but he doesn't seem to have that much of a brain or any smarts.
  • Brutal Honesty: Caleb says exactly what he feels, even at the expense of others' feelings.
  • The Brute: Caleb is big in a physical sense which makes him on the intimidating side, especially with his controlling personality and his competitive nature.
  • Butt-Monkey: Caleb is constantly made fun over is obsession over Amber.
  • Cannot Convey Sarcasm: Everything that Caleb says, whether it is a joke or meant to be sarcastic, comes off as serious.
  • Cannot Talk to Women: Have you seen his interactions with Amber and when he tried to tell Amber that he likes her as more than just a friend? Awkward.
  • Can't Take Criticism: Whenever someone calls Caleb out or makes remarks about Caleb's behaviour, he doesn't take it to well. Especially when Amber calls him out.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Caleb likes to think he can charm the ladies, but he really only comes off as an obsessed stalker instead.
  • Catchphrase: "At the end of the day", "Jamoke", "Judy Chop!" and "Heard dat."
  • The Champion: For Amber. Caleb even said early in the game that he would sacrifice his game for Amber.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Caleb is kind of ....out there.
  • The Comically Serious: Caleb is really serious when he is trying to be either sarcastic or funny.
  • Compensating for Something: Many fans think that Caleb has a huge ego or constantly brags about himself is because he is very insecure and has "short man syndrome".
  • Competition Freak: Is becoming this as he has won 3 HOH titles. Caleb seems to take competing and every competition seriously.
  • Conspiracy Theorist: Caleb always believes that everything interesting is a conspiracy theory. He even creates his own conspiracy theories about life.
  • Control Freak: Caleb is very controlling by nature, probably just as much as Devin. Hell, he even thought that he had control over Amber and the fate of her game.
  • Consummate Liar/Blatant Lies: Caleb seems to have a habit of either embellishing or exaggerating about things in general, especially about his real life stories.
  • Cool Shades: Caleb wears sunglasses from time to time.
  • The Corruptible: Caleb is very easily manipulated, especially by Derrick.
  • Cowboy: Well, Caleb is from the South and wears a cowboy hat. Let's not forget that his nickname is "Beast Mode Cowboy".
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Oh dear, when it comes to Amber, Caleb gets very jealous of any guy who so much as either looks at or talks to Amber.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Caleb comes off as stupid and not so smart, but he is actually a solid competitor and has made it rather far in the game despite the houseguests not caring for him in the beginning. Caleb's social game has also taken a turn for the better as well.
  • Cute and Psycho: Caleb isn't exactly stable.
  • The Cynic: Seems to be rather cynical about life in general, especially about romance and love, even though he's rather idealistic when it comes to romance.
  • The Dandy: Caleb takes pride in his physical appearance. He is very metrosexual.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Caleb can be highly sarcastic and snarky.
  • Death Glare: Caleb gives these to any guy who so much as looks at Amber.
  • Deep South: Caleb is originally from Texas.
  • Delusions of Grandeur: Caleb is the most delusional houseguest of the season, along with Frankie. Caleb believes that he is actually Superman.
  • Desperately Craves Affection: This should just be changed to "Desperately Craves Amber's Affection".
  • The Determinator: Caleb is very persistent when he wants something, including winning competitions or trying to get the object of his obsession.
  • Did Not Get the Girl: Caleb is infatuated with Amber, but his feelings for her are unreciprocated as Amber has no romantic feelings for Caleb.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Caleb was evicted and finished in 4th place.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: When Caleb found out that Amber did not reciprocate her feelings and that she was in fact targeting him, Caleb encouraged Frankie to backdoor Amber. Not only that, but he also happily voted to evict her.
  • Distracted by My Own Sexy: Caleb thinks the world of himself.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Early in the game, Caleb's entire game was AMBER, AMBER, AMBER.
  • The Ditz: Definitely not the smartest houseguest and seems to lack in the logic department.
  • Does Not Like Spam: Caleb HATES pickles. But because Amber made a deal with him that of he ate one pickle, she would go on a date with him, Caleb ended up chomping down a pickle so that he could get a date with her. But Caleb said that it was one of the most unpleasant things to do.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Caleb resented Amber for repeatedly rejecting him so he pushed for Amber to get nominated. On top of it, Caleb voted her out.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: Almost veering into stalker or obsessive territory in regards to Amber.
  • The Dragon: At first, Caleb was seen as this for Frankie, the Big Bad. But as of recently, Caleb has become this for Derrick.
    • Co-Dragons: With Frankie, Cody, Christine, and Victoria for Derrick. Although Frankie seems to be Caleb's closest friend and ally in the house, in the grand scheme of things, Caleb has actually shown that he has more loyalty to Derrick than Frankie.
    • Devour the Dragon: Derrick orchestrated Caleb's demise so that Derrick could increase his chances of making Final 2.
    • Dragon Ascendant: Caleb was directly responsible for Frankie's demise in the game. He did win Head of Household and did nominate Frankie for eviction. Frankie is then evicted and Caleb gives his undying loyalty to Derrick who would end up stabbing him in the back the following week.
    • Dragon with an Agenda: Has shown many times that he has planned on betraying Frankie by wanting to backdoor him.
    • Dragon Their Feet: For most of the game, Caleb has been The Dragon to Frankie's Big Bad. Frankie was Calebs closest ally. But Caleb turned on Frankie and chose to be more loyal to Derrick and Cody. Frankie is evicted after Caleb wins the Head of Household at final 5.
    • Noble Top Enforcer: Arguably, Caleb is a little more noble than Frankie and has repeatedly showed that he would be willing to betray Frankie due to the fact that Caleb has openly said that Frankie rubs him the wrong way and pisses him off.
    • Number Two for Brains: Caleb has shown that he is not the sharpest tool in the shed and that he doesn't always think logically. It is Derrick (and Frankie) that are the intelligent ones who are the strategists.
    • The Starscream: Has completely turned on Frankie and has confessed his Undying Loyalty to Derrick (and Cody by extension).
    • Villainous Friendship: Caleb is friends and allies with Derrick.
  • Driven by Envy: Many of Caleb's actions in the house have been driven by the fact that he is jealous, especially in regards to Amber.
  • Drunk on the Dark Side: Caleb seems to be completely and undyingly loyal to Derrick that there is no point of return.
  • Drunk with Power: Caleb thinks that he is the strongest player in the game.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: Caleb always saw Amber as ungrateful, because she refused to reciprocate his feelings and always felt that she didn't appreciate that he tried to help her in the game as much as possible.
  • Dumb Jock: Caleb sure can lift weights and look all muscular but he sure is not the sharpest tool in the shed.
  • Dumb Muscle: Caleb has his dumb moments.
  • Emotional Bruiser: Comes off as cocky and arrogant but he is sensitive and emotional and a HUGE romantic.
  • Enigmatic Minion: Was this for the majority of the game in the beginning, but Caleb has shown his loyalty to Derrick and Frankie, although he is more loyal to Derrick than he is to Frankie.
  • Entitled Bastard: Definitely shows strong shades of this, especially in regards to Amber. Whenever Amber doesn't pay attention to him, he throws a fit and throws Amber under the bus.
  • Entitled to Have You: In regards to Amber. Caleb believed that Amber should have reciprocated his affections for no good reason and he often felt that she was a prize to be won.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Caleb did not take it too well when he found out that Amber does not like him, and that she has bad mouthed him to other houseguests. It gotten worse when he learned that Amber wanted to nominated.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: Frankie has repeatedly said that Caleb is physically attractive.
  • Everything Is Big in Texas: Caleb is not a tall guy but he is very muscular.
  • Fearless Fool: Tried to throw a BOTB competition while he was on the block alongside Frankie, all so he could lose, remain nominated so that Frankie would be sent him. Unfortunately, it backfired, since Frankie singlehandedly won the competition by himself.
  • The Fighting Narcissist: He is a cross between this and an Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy. Caleb takes pride in himself and is rather metrosexual.
  • The Fool: This was a guy that was willing to throw away his game away over a girl (Amber). Plus, Caleb is very easily manipulated.
  • Fool for Love: When it comes to love or Amber, Caleb is completely irrational and foolish.
  • Four Is Death: Caleb finished in 4th place.
  • Gentle Giant: Caleb appears to be The Brute and The Napoleon, but he's actually quite a softy and a huge romantic at heart.
  • Glass Cannon: Caleb has proven that he is a very strong physical competitor but he can't always take a lot of damage or pain.
  • Glory Seeker: Caleb seems to like glory and attention. He seems to be very fame seeking and desires to have fame once he is out of the game.
  • Good Ol' Boy: Averted. Caleb is from Kentucky.
  • Goofy Suit: Caleb had to wear an Adam and Eve costume for 48 hours along with Victoria as a punishment from a BOTB competition.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Caleb is a very jealous person by nature.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Has a quick temper when he is angered, irritated or provoked.
  • Handsome Lech
  • Hates Being Alone: Probably why he was so obsessive over Amber and having a romantic relationship with her.
  • Heartbroken Badass: Was repeatedly rejected by Amber.
  • Hellhole Prison: Was put through one - not as a prisoner, but as a guard. He mentions in his interview that many people he had to watch were goading him with taunts like "I killed five of your friends". He is surprisingly well adjusted.
  • Heroic Build: Caleb's physique is highly noticeable.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Devin, Zach, and Derrick.
  • Hopeless Suitor: In regards to Amber.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Caleb trusts people that he really shouldn't and is very easily manipulated. He didn't have a good read on Amber and believed that she didn't confess her feelings for him because she was scared of being targeted. Seriously, Caleb?
  • Hot-Blooded: Caleb is definitely on the crazy and impulsive side, and he is rather emotional.
  • Hunk: Caleb is one of the more physically attractive and appealing male houseguests of the season along with Cody. He's fit, muscular, with an athletic Heroic Build. Plus, he has nice bone structure, good facial features and he looks like a male model. Facially, he's a mix between this and a Pretty Boy.
  • Idiot Ball: In Week 3, despite being one of the biggest targets in the house, he volunteered to go on the block and threw the Battle of the Block competition. Also, during the POV reward/punishment competition in Week 6, Caleb (who was eliminated from the competition and therefore eligible to choose between keeping his prize or trading it for a prize already claimed by another houseguest) traded the Power of Veto medal to Victoria in exchange for a $5,000 prize, allowing Victoria to remove herself from the eviction nominations. Cody, who was the HOH that week, was so ticked off by Caleb's decision not to take the POV that he considered putting him on the block.note 
  • If I Can't Have You...: Amber didn't reciprocate Caleb's feelings, therefore, Caleb became vengeful. Caleb basically said that Amber's game is in his hands. When Amber refused to reciprocate his affections, Caleb openly stated that he wouldn't care if Amber ended up nominated or was evicted. When Amber was on the block for eviction, Caleb ended up voting Amber out simply because she rejected him and showed no interest in him.
  • I Just Want to Be Loved: Only by Amber of course. He seems to be obsessed with being loved by someone.
  • In Love with Love: The dude's favorite movie is The Notebook.
  • In-Series Nickname: "BEAST MODE COWBOY", which was coined and given to him by Derrick.
  • It's All About Me: Caleb has a huge ego, is selfish, narcissistic, self absorbed and constantly brags about himself to other houseguests.
  • Innocent Bigot/Innocently Insensitive: Caleb makes some comments that aren't meant to be offensive but can be slightly controversial.
  • Insufferable Genius: Caleb is very cocky and full of himself. He believes that he is likeable and that he is one of the best players of the season.
  • Jerkass: An unlikeable jerk. Highlighted when he decided to throw the football challenge. Sometimes Caleb would act like a jerk in order to protect the people that he was closest to or the people that he cared about in the game. However, Caleb's intentions were still good despite his jerky behavior.
  • Jerk Jock: In opposition to Hayden, who's a more Lovable Jock. Caleb is highly athletic and fit, but he's incredibly cocky, arrogant, and egotistical with regards to athletic ability. However, even though he started off as unlikeable, Caleb mellow out and becomes more likeable and humble later on in the game.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Later on in the game after Amber is evicted, Caleb becomes way more likeable and light hearted. He becomes a much nicer person and lets his guard down. He genuinely cares about his alliance members and will do anything to protect them and keep them safe, even if he has to sacrifice his game to do it. With all intents and purposes, Caleb may have his problematic moments, but ultimately, his heart is in the right place.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Caleb only put his game on the line repeatedly for Amber, so that she would eventually reciprocate his feelings and get her to date him. Every time that Caleb had openly said that he wanted to throw his game away for Amber, it wasn't because he was genuinely trying to be a genuinely selfless, nice person, but because he simply wanted something in return and that was Amber's love.
  • Joke Character: Many people did not take Caleb seriously. He seemed to be the houseguest that was easy to make fun of because he came off as very oblivious. He also got a stalker edit on the show, with him obsessing over Amber. The fans seemed to treat Caleb as a joke and would often laugh about his antics, especially about his over the top infatuation with Amber. However, this is an Averted Trope later on, as Caleb starts to become more competitive and takes his game more seriously. It doesn't stop Caleb from being funny though. Jump over to Survivor, and Caleb is incredibly competitive and no joke at all!
  • Knight In Shining Armour/Knight in Sour Armour: Saw himself as this for Amber.
  • Lack of Empathy: Didn't feel sorry for Amber when he voted her out.
  • Large Ham: Caleb can be over the top at times.
  • Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places: Caleb doesn't seem to understand the concept of when a girl is just not that into him.
  • Love Hungry: In regards to Amber. In general, he seems to fall for a pretty face pretty quick, considering his reaction when he saw photos of Cody's equally attractive sister (whom he quickly finds out in a letter Cody reads, already has a boyfriend) and Ariana Grande (after Frankie revealed that she was his sister) in the HOH room, when Cody and Frankie became HOHs in Weeks 6 and 9, much to their dismay.
  • Love Hurts: Poor Caleb. Just could not get Amber to love him back.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: Does borderline stalking Amber in the house count?
  • Meaningful Name: Caleb means "faithful" in Hebrew. Ironically, it showcases Caleb's strong loyal streak.
  • Mighty Glacier: Caleb is very strong physically but he is not overly quick.
  • Miles Gloriosus: Caleb likes to act all tough and even coins himself as being "Beastmode Cowboy", but in reality, he is very cowardly when it comes to the game.
  • Mistaken for Racist: Many fans have said that Caleb was racist because he made a racial comment on his Instagram about President Obama by calling him a "Muslim Monkey".
  • Motor Mouth: Caleb has a habit of talking way too much, especially when he shouldn't.
  • Mr. Fanservice: One of the more physically appealing male houseguests of the season, along with Devin, Zach and Cody.
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: Caleb uses his muscles and his Heroic Build to his advantage competitively.
  • The Napoleon: Caleb is very muscular but he is on the short and stocky side. Going by his attitude, it's apparent that he suffers from a serious case of Little Man Syndrome.
  • Nice Hat: Caleb is almost aways seen wearing a cap or even a cowboy hat.
  • Not Good with Rejection: Caleb DOES NOT handle rejection well, especially from Amber.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Caleb appears to be a stereotypical Dumb Muscle, but he won a Math competition doing better than even Zach (who's an Economics Major). Whether this was just pure dumb luck or if he's genuinely smarter than he looks is hard to say.
  • Odd Friendship: With Frankie. Frankie is a Camp Gay who's an effeminate, flamboyant, flaming homosexual Liberal while Caleb is a Rated M for Manly, bible thumping, gun-loving Republican or Conservative. In all fairness though, their relationship isn't completely out there or odd considering that Caleb is actually a metrosexual cowboy that takes pride and care in his physical appearance.
  • Ominous Music Box Tune: Whenever Caleb is interacting with Amber in a stalker-ish or obsessive manner, the background music changes to creepy musical box tinkling.
  • Only Known By His Nickname: It's easier to count the number of times that the other houseguests have called Caleb "Beast Mode Cowboy," than the number of times Caleb has called himself that... and it's a lot!
  • Pet the Dog: Yeah, he's probably the biggest Jerkass this season, but recently, he did have some nice things to say about Victoria after being chained to her for a while.
  • The Pig Pen: Many houseguests complain that Caleb has body odor and has bad hygiene.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: If his Instagram is to be believed. There is a post in 2012 of him saying "fag" and calling President Barack Obama a "Muslim monkey". Fortunately, it has been averted in the house.
  • Prince Charming Wannabe: Saw himself as this and a Knight In Shining Armour for Amber. However, Amber on the hand saw Caleb as obsessive a bit of a stalker.
  • "Psycho" Strings: Episode 10 saw these being bust out by production when Caleb had a pervasive conversation with Amber about throwing the block for her (against her wishes and under Derrick's manipulation as HOH to backdoor Devin) while wearing her bunny slippers. As he mentioned he'd be upset if she got voted out, the music went to a chillingly cool percussion mix. Later, when Amber and Cody were having a conversation with Caleb in earshot, it went to pseudo-Jaws music as Caleb shot them a Death Glare and then stomped in looking all pissed and Cody got silently unnerved.
  • Real Men Love Jesus: Caleb is a Christian and comes from a religious family.
  • Reality Show Genre Blindness: Plays the game way too personally.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Caleb is the Red to Derrick and Frankie's Blue.
  • Religious Bruiser: See Real Men Love Jesus.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Has been shown wearing pink bunny slippers.
  • Selective Obliviousness: Caleb has been repeatedly told by other houseguests that Amber is not romantically interested in him, yet Caleb seems to constantly deny this fact by trying to say that she is just hiding her feelings for him in the game because Amber is scared and doesn't want to become a target.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: He's an Iraq war veteran.
  • Shipper on Deck: Oddly enough, Caleb seems to be a Zankie (Zach & Frankie) supporter.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Caleb has the biggest ego in the house.
  • Smug Snake: Caleb is really smug and egotistical.
  • Southern Gentleman: Comes off as this at first, but this can now be averted as he has revealed to have some not so pleasant qualities.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Towards Amber, and that's just the first two weeks in the house.
  • Those Two Guys/Those Two Bad Guys: With Devin earlier on in the game. However, Devin became the house's biggest target and ended up evicted. Caleb even threw Devin to the wolves because even though they were "boys" and allies, Caleb saw Devin as a huge liability to his game. Later on after Devin is evicted he becomes this with Frankie. Frankie pretty much becomes Caleb's closest ally in the game.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Decided to waste his head of household going after Nicole, who delivered a very well deserved Take That! in her eviction speech about how Caleb is too cowardly to try and make any big moves. Overall, he is considered one of the dumbest overall players this season if not the entire game.
  • Troubled, but Cute: Caleb is cute but the boy sure does have some serious emotional issues. The guy is extremely needy and clingy and needs constant affirmation from other people which only indicates that he has serious self esteem issues even though it appears that someone like him wouldn't battle such a thing.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Derrick, Frankie and to a certain extent Cody. However, out of the three, the one whom he had the most loyalty towards was Derrick. Caleb had loyalty to Frankie but once he realized that Frankie was the biggest competitive and overall threat in the game Caleb turned on him and wanted him out of the game.
  • Yandere: DEAR LORD, he's this for Amber so much to the extent that he could be the Trope Codifier! In regards to Amber, Caleb was Not Good with Rejection and he veered into Crazy Jealous Guy and If I Can't Have You... territory! He got very jealous of Amber flirting with the other male houseguests, notably Cody and because of this, Caleb actually wanted Cody out of the house in order o get him out of the way. The CBS live show editing of the Caleb/Amber relationship made it come across as though Caleb's attraction to Amber was on Fatal Attraction levels. He became a Stalker with a Crush, following Amber all around the house and constantly trying to get her to say yes to a date with him in the real world. Caleb talked about Amber non-stop on the live feeds as well as on the live show. In fact, Caleb talked about her so much that it seemed as though the only word in Caleb's vocabulary was AMBER, AMBER, AMBER. Many of his allies, such as Devin, Cody, Zach, Derrick and Frankie, felt that Caleb's obsession with Amber was costing him his game and putting his alliance in jeopardy because he was completely blinded by his infatuation for her. What made Caleb come across as even more pathetic with regards to his feelings for Amber was that Amber didn't even like him or reciprocate his feelings. So his obsession with Amber was completely one sided and came across as more creepy and stalker-ish.

  • 0% Approval Rating: And how! Frankie is one of the most hated houseguests, if not, the most hated houseguest of the season (along with Christine). Frankie is not liked by the viewers and he is very, very unlikable. He is ranked very low on popularity polls, such a Jokers Updates Houseguests Ratings for example, and there are many, many people who have said that they hate Frankie just as much if not more than Aaryn Gries, Amanda Zuckerman, GinaMarie Zimmerman and Andy Herren from last season. Much of the disdain that fans had towards Frankie was because he was very arrogant, smug and narcissistic. He has also said many problematic things about the other houseguests. For example, he made a rape joke about Victoria about how one of the other male houseguests should take her virginity while he's drunk or out of it. He's also incredibly misogynistic and has bashed all of the other women in the house. The fact that Frank was instrumental in getting his closest ally Zach out of the house and was the one that had a strong influence on Zach's demise in the game did nothing to help Frankie's popularity. Frankie was also incredibly disloyal and was constantly scheming an plotting against his own allies. Another reason why the fans hated Frankie was because he was a mega Attention Whore who constantly tries to gain attention and hog the camera. Overall, Frankie was just a completely hate-worthy houseguest and literally none of the Big Brother fans liked him. The only people that did root for Frankie were a very vocal minority of the fan base and most of them were Ariana Grande fans.
  • Above Good and Evil: Frankie doesn't care whether what he does is right or wrong, it's about what he wants in the end. Frankie seems to think he is above it all, including morals.
  • The Ace: Frankie is the strongest male competitor this season along with Donny. He has won a total of nine competitions.
  • Action Fashionista: Just because Frankie is the strongest male competitor doesn't mean that he doesn't have time to pay attention to his wardrobe and clothing.
  • Affably Evil: Frankie can be very polite and friendly to your face but will have no problem with stabbing you in the back.
  • Agent Peacock: Frankie wears makeup and glitter yet he is the strongest competitor and one of the most strategic players in the game.
  • Aggressive Categorism: Frankie has a tendency to judge people way too easily. He seems to be particularly prejudiced about lesbians, saying that lesbians are not born gay and that they choose their lifestyle. Frankie, despite being gay himself, does not seem to talk all that highly about homosexuals and he displays homophobic behaviour. This could be seen as internalized self hatred on Frankie's behalf. Frankie has also made some hateful and unpleasant comments about women and he seems to be highly misogynistic. When you really look at it, Frankie has disliked almost every single female houseguest of the season and has said something negative about them.
  • The Alcoholic: Frankie has mentioned that he has had alcohol and drinking problems in the past.
  • All Gays Are Promiscuous: Frankie constantly brags about how many partners he has been with.
  • All Gays Love Theater: Well, Frankie does perform in broadway.
  • A God Am I: Frankie thinks he's the best player in the entire house and that he is very powerful because he is the half brother of a famous sister. His ego is so gigantic, it's the size of the U.S.
  • All Men Are Perverts: There is not a single male houseguest with the exception of Donny, that Frankie hasn't hugged, touched, fondled, caressed or flirted with.
  • Alpha Bitch: A gay male version.
  • Ambition Is Evil: It is clear that Frankie endlessly winning competitions isn't about protecting his allies, but all about protecting himself. Frankie is very greedy, selfish, egotistical and power hungry.
  • And There Was Much Rejoicing: Many viewers were very happy, elated and ecstatic when Frankie was evicted.
  • Anti-Villain: Type I. Frankie seems to openly admit and embrace the fact that he is the villain of the season.
  • Anything That Moves: Frankie will fondle and touch any male houseguest that is in his orbit.
  • Arch-Enemy: Nicole. Frankie has had beef with her since early in the game.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Frankie is a strong competitor but he constantly brags about and is very full of himself.
  • The Atoner: Since his time on the house, Frankie has mellowed out into a nicer guy. In his guest appearances on other CBS shows, Frankie is a lot more beloved and his celebrity relations with sister Ariana have helped him gain a lot of love as well as sympathy, especially after the terrorist attack on one of her concerts. Frankie even shows massive alarm when one of his fellow former competitors plays mean on a Big Brother crossover-themed episode of the The Price Is Right, which is meant to be a very good-spirited and fair show, protesting, "We're not in the house anymore!!"
  • Attention Whore: THE BIGGEST ONE OF THE SEASON. Frankie seems to enjoy being the center of attention and can't stand it when someone else is getting attention. Frankie openly admitted he was jealous of Zach and all of the attention he gets from Julie Chen. Which is probably why Frankie ended up backstabbing and betraying Zach and having him evicted. There's only room for "one star" of the season. After the Donny boot when America voted "no" on Frankie's play for Team America, he immediately got upset and openly scolded America for not liking his play.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: Frankie's full name is Frank "Frankie" James Michael Grande Marchione. Try saying that three times fast.
  • Badass Gay: Frankie won the Battle of the Block single handed. Although he is slight in frame, he is still a very strong competitor and has out competed all of the male houseguests such as Caleb, Cody and Donny.
  • Badass Boast: Frankie is constantly seen bragging. There is never a time when Frankie is not either boasting about how smart he is, how strong of a competitor he is or making threats about how much of a beast he is in the game.
  • Badass Bookworm: Frankie triple majored in university and is book smart.
  • Badass on Paper: Nobody would really expect skinny and gay Frankie to win the most competitions of the season.
  • Bait the Dog: Frankie appeared as though he would be a likeable, upbeat and happy gay houseguest. Turns out that he is really extremely narcissistic, hateful, vile, attention seeking, and self absorbed. Shouldn't we have all remembered Andy from last season?
  • Batman Gambit: Frankie eventually told the house he was related to the pop star Ariana Grande, and that if he wins the game, he plans on donating the prize money to charity. Zach rages about this in his DR session, feeling betrayed and feeling like he has no shot to win the game or America's Favourite, knowing he's planning to donate the money to a charity and that his sister has many fans who would vote Frankie to win the America's Favourite Prize.
  • Believing Their Own Lies: Frankie believes that everything he is saying is the truth, when he lies the most out of everyone.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Arguably with Zach throughout the season. Interestingly enough, Frankie and Zach didn't like each other in the beginning.
  • Berserk Button: Attacking Frankie personally or attacking his family doesn't make Frankie too happy.
  • Big Applesauce: Frankie hails from New York although he is originally from Florida.
  • Big Bad: Frankie openly admits that he is the villain of the season. However, in the grand scheme of things, Frankie is actually really The Dragon to Derrick.
    • Big Bad Duumvirate: Could be considered to be this with Christine, as both are being portrayed as the villains of the season.
    • Big Bad Friend: Ultimately to Zach. He acted like he legitimately loved Zach and enjoyed his company, but he then stabbed him in the back and got him evicted.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Has some towards Caleb, Zach and Derrick.
  • Big Eater: Frankie seems to have a huge appetite. He snacks and eats a lot, even though he manages to stay so thin.
  • Big Ego, Hidden Depths: Frankie has openly said that he has always felt that he lived in Ariana's shadow. This could be the reason why he constantly tries to build himself up because deep down, he is very insecure. Still not an excuse for his narcissistic, attention-seeking and arrogant personality and behaviour though.
  • Birds of a Feather: With Christine. Both are very hateful, sneaky, cunning and manipulative and both of them are the biggest liars and gossipers in the house.
  • Blatant Lies: Frankie has exaggerated and embellished many of his life stories.
  • The Bluebeard: A Ho Yay version between Zach and Frankie, known as Zankie. Frankie was often sen as being in a sort of showmance with Zach. They were initially very close and had a strong bond and relationship both on personal and game level. But Zach started to act sketchy die to his chaotic, aggressive and irrational gameplay and behavior. This caused Frankie to start to distrust Zach and he eventually turned on him. When Frankie won HOH, he backdoored Zach after having Caleb taken off the block with the POV. Zach was evicted afterwards. Frankie also showed little to no remorse for backstabbing his once closest ally and "showmantic" partner in the game. Frankie received a lot of criticism, hate and backlash for turning on Zach and whatever popularity Frankie did have went down the drain.
  • Boomerang Bigot: Frankie has openly shown disdain for female homosexuals or lesbians. Although he is a male homosexual, he is still showing prejudiced views about his own group, which is the LGBT community.
  • Born Lucky: Has won a total of five HOH comps, a BOTB comp and three POV's, and is probably one of the strongest strategic players. He had only been nominated twice as well.
    • Born Unlucky: His luck during this season trickled over to Celebrity Big Brother in the UK. He also makes note in an interview about the upcoming Big Brother 20 that he has been on many game shows and lost on every single one (Celebrity Big Brother, The Price Is Right, Candy Crush, etc.).
  • Break the Cutie: Did this to Zach when he backdoored him and betrayed him. On top if it, he basically told Zach that if he tried to campaign and stay in the house, he would make his time miserable in the house.
  • Brutal Honesty: Frankie is actually very frank and honest.
  • Camp Gay: It's pretty obvious just by looking at him.
  • Cam Whore: Frankie seems to always hog the camera and is always looking at the cameras to make sure they are on him.
  • Cannot Keep a Secret: Part of having a Motor Mouth. Frankie always spills info that is given to him.
  • Can't Take Criticism: Frankie loves criticizing other houseguests but hates when others make negative comments about him.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Has openly said that he is being portrayed as a villain.
  • Catchphrase: "Go Grande or go home!"
  • Category Traitor: Frankie is a homosexual man and hence, a part of the LGBT community, yet he has made some very prejudiced and homophobic comments about lesbians and seems to have a disdain for them.
  • Character Overlap: Frankie is the only houseguest from the US version of Big Brother to compete on the UK edition of Celebrity Big Brother due to his status as the brother of a mega celebrity.
  • The Chessmaster: One of the more strategic and smarter players of the game along with Derrick. However, in the grand scheme of things, Derrick is still the puppet master and mastermind of the season as Derrick is even controlling Frankie.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Had zero problem with throwing his number one ally in the game, Zach, under the bus and trying to get him evicted since week two.
  • Classic Villain: Frankie seems to have some of the criteria of this trope such as Pride, Greed, Lust and Envy. He is Pride because Frankie is very arrogant, cocky, smug and constantly brags about himself and his accomplishments, indicating a very self absorbed, selfish, narcissistic and vain personality. He is Greed, because he seems to only want to look out for himself and puts himself before anyone else; he is also in the game for the money and openly says that he doesn't really necessarily care about making friends. Frankie is Lust, because he has shown that he is very sexually perverted and lustful in that he is always touching, fondling, caressing the other male houseguests (whom are straight and much to their discomfort), displaying highly sexually perverted nature. And finally, Frankie exhibits traits of Envy since he has openly admitted that he is a jealous person by nature; he has shown that he is possibly jealous of his sister Ariana due to living in her shadow and her having fame and fortune while he doesn't. Frankie also admitted that he was jealous of Zach, his popularity and the attention he receives from Julie Chen as well as Donny for being popular with the viewers.
  • Clingy Jealous Guy: Frankie gets visibly jealous whenever Zach talks about girls or whenever he hangs out with girls in the house such as Nicole and Victoria.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Frankie plays rather dirty and ruthless.
  • Competition Freak: Frankie has won a total of nine competitions and is by far, the best competitor this season along with Donny.
  • Condescending Compassion: Frankie doesn't seem to show any actual remorse and compassion for others in the game and he comes off as highly condescending to those who are in trouble. He displayed this behaviour towards his closest ally in the house, Zach and even threatened that he would make Zach's life miserable if Zach even attempted to campaign to stay in the house. But then almost immediately after, he would apologize to Zach and tell him he is sorry that this is happening to him and that he loves Zach.
  • Conflicting Loyalty: Had to choose whether to be loyal to his number one ally and "best friend" Zach or be loyal to Derrick and Caleb. He chose the later and backstabbed and betrayed the former.
  • Constantly Curious: Frankie is always interrupted other people's conversations, similar to Andy.
  • Consummate Liar: If Frankie is talking, then he is most likely lying or being deceitful.
  • Contrived Coincidence: He once made a YouTube video with Nick Uhas (from Big Brother 15).
  • Cool Shades: Like many of the other male houseguests, Frankie wears sunglasses.
  • The Corrupter: Frankie brings out the worst in everyone around him and he brings the vibe of the house down.
  • Cowardly Lion: Frankie seems to be afraid to make big moves or seems to be afraid of pissing people off so he resorts to sneaking around and lying instead.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Frankie is always scheming and strategizing.
  • Crazy Survivalist: Frankie primarily puts his own safety in the game before others, hence why he consistently goes out of his way to win absolutely every single competition he wins. He likes to make it seem that he cares about the safety of his allies, but Frankie openly said that he believes that he has "carried" all of his "allies" this far in the game with winning so much.
  • Cute Bruiser: Frankie may be gay, be small in stature and may have pink hair but he is one of the most dangerous players in the game along with Derrick.
  • Dead Guy Junior: Sadly, this became the case when Frankie's grandfather, Frank, passed away in the middle of the competition, whom Frankie (given name Frank) is named after.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Frankie is very witty, sarcastic and snide.
  • Death Glare: Gives many of these to others whom he is jealous of, annoyed with or angry at.
  • Delusions of Grandeur: Frankie definitely brags way too much about his game and what a great competitor he is.
  • Depraved Homosexual: His prey seem to be straight men and he seems to have a very highly sexual and even perverted nature. In fact, Frankie's outwardly sexual behaviour and uncomfortable flirting has made both viewers and the male houseguests alike very uncomfortable and some viewers have even outright said that Frankie is committing sexual harassment. Frankie has tried to come onto or has inappropriately flirted with Zach, Cody, Derrick, Caleb, and Devin, all of whom are heterosexual and quite a few of them have expressed how it makes them uncomfortable.
  • Desperately Craves Affection: It seems as though Frankie's constant touching of the other male houseguests show that Frankie is desperate to gain attention.
  • The Determinator: Frankie is one of the most persistent players in the game and he NEVER GIVES UP. Hence why he has won so many competitions to keep himself in the game.
  • Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead: Numerous fans were very happy and elated that Frankie was finally evicted.
  • Disability as an Excuse for Jerkassery: Frankie says that he cannot be a Have Not because he suffers from a disease called Reynaud's Disease, which means that he can't handle cold climates. He uses his disability to be selfish and gain sympathy so that he does not have to be a Have Not, therefore, subjecting others to having to be Have Nots for him.
  • Dirty Coward: Threw his number one ally (Zach) under he bus and backdoored him all while being petty about it. What makes it worse is that Derrick is the biggest threat in the game, yet Frankie decided that backdooring his ally was his best game move. What an idiot.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Frankie's demise finally came, thanks to the manipulation and strategizing of Derrick and the competitiveness of Caleb and Cody.
  • The Dragon: Is one for Derrick. Frankie is the Big Bad and a Big Bad Duumvirate with Christine, but in the grand scheme of things, he's actually being controlled by Derrick throughout the game.
    • Co-Dragons: With Cody, Christine, Caleb and Victoria for Derrick.
    • Demoted to Dragon: Frankie, who is thought of the Big Bad along with Christine, is actually The Dragon to Derrick.
    • Devour the Dragon: As of Week 12, Frankie's game is coming to an end. And who orchestrated Frankie's demise? None other than his "Master" Derrick, whom wants Frankie gone so he can be stronger and remain the biggest threat in the game. Although not as dangerous as Derrick, Frankie was still Derrick's biggest competition in the game by far and was his number one obstacle to getting to the end, even though it was a possibility that Frankie would take Derrick to the Final 2.
    • Dragon Ascendant: Frankie has now taken over the role of Big Bad now that Christine has been evicted. Derrick is still the The Man Behind the Man though.
    • Dragon-in-Chief: Averted. Frankie is thought to be more dangerous than Derrick in terms of winning numerous competitions. However, Derrick is still way more dangerous than Frankie since he is very brilliant and intelligent, is the puppet master and is controlling everything and everyone in the entire game, including Frankie.
    • The Heavy: Frankie (along with Christine) is considered to be the most prominent "villain" and he is the source of the major conflict.
    • Mouth of Sauron: Frankie is basically a Supporting Leader to Derrick and when Derrick is not taking an active role, Frankie is always picking up the slack, especially when it comes to Team America tasks.
    • Villainous Friendship: Frankie is allies and a fellow team member of Team America with Derrick.
  • Drag Queen: Frankie has been seen dressing up like a woman on occasion.
  • Drama King: Frankie thrives on drama and he is very dramatic at times. He often uses it as a sympathy card.
  • Driven by Envy: Every thing that Frankie does is probably driven by envy and jealousy, including his need for attention, compliments and affirmation from others.
  • Effeminate Misogynistic Guy: Frankie has made many problematic comments regarding the female houseguests. Frankie even made a comment that Jocasta should kill herself and that Brittany looks like a transvestite. Frankie also hated Amber and constantly bashed her and has repeatedly said how much he dislikes Nicole. He has also said that he wanted to punch Nicole in the mouth and he has also called Nicole the "C" word. Let's not forget that he made a horrible joke about Victoria being gang raped. He has even made hateful comments about Christine, his former number one ally. Frankie is probably the most misogynistic houseguest of the entire season.
  • Entitled Bastard: Whenever something doesn't go Frankie's way, he acts bratty and pouts.
  • Everyone Can See It: His relationship with Zach. Everyone in the house notices how close Frankie and Zach are. Even Cody and Caleb have commented that they might be in love with each other.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Frankie doesn't understand why America would love a kind, loyal, loving and noble person like Donny.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Well, he obviously loves his sister Ariana and his family, but probably not more than he loves himself.
  • Evil All Along: Came off as if he was one of the the better houseguests in the beginning, but his true colours came out and Frankie has proven that he is very unlikable.
  • Evil Counterpart: Ultimately could be seen as this to Zach.
  • Evil Feels Good: Seems to have little to no problem being hateful, backstabbing and manipulative, just as long as he gets what he wants.
  • Evil Former Friend: To Zach. Turns out that he is a huge liar, backstabber and preferred to place his loyalty with Derrick and Caleb instead of Zach.
  • Evil Gloating: Frankie is always bragging about something that has to do with his sister, his fame, his intelligence, his popularity, etc.
  • Evil Has a Bad Sense of Humor: Frankie's jokes are not very funny and can be rather offensive. Such as his joke about Victoria being raped.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Frankie is very dramatic and over the top in everything he does.
  • Evil Is Petty: Frankie has made negative comments about many houseguests including Amber, Zach, Donny, Nicole, Victoria and Jocasta. Many of Frankie's attacks are also very personal.
  • Expressive Hair: Frankie's hair is very ...noticeable.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: Don't be fooled by Frankie's "innocent" face. He is very hateful and unlikeable.
  • Fallen Hero: Started out as a decent and likable House Guest but as the season progressed, he showed his true colours and became more hateful, unlikable and more of a villain.
  • False Friend: Ultimately to Zach. Frankie had been pretending to be friends and allies with Zach when he had been plotting Zach's demise since Week 2.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: Constantly tries to paint himself in a heroic light by saying that he has looked out for all of his allies and has been undyingly loyal to everyone. The funny thing is, it's all in Frankie's mind that all of his allies are loyal to him and love him when they secretly can't stand him and want to get rid of him.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Frankie pretends to be nice, friendly and sociable but he is really the biggest liar, rat and schemer and he is very hateful.
  • Fighting Clown: Frankie looks and acts weird and out there, but he plays very normally and is a solid competitor.
  • For the Evulz: Creates lies about spreads rumours about other houseguests for his own amusement and enjoyment.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Many of the Frankie's allies (i.e. Cody, Zach, Christine, Derrick, Donny, Caleb) have commented how much Frankie rubs them the wrong way, despite being aligned with him.
  • Gay Best Friend: Seems to be this for Caleb, Zach, and Derrick, all of whom are straight.
  • Gay Guy Seeks Popular Jock: His relationship with Zach could count as this, since Zach is an athlete albeit also a nerd.
  • Geek Physique: Frankie is of the skinny type.
  • Genius Bruiser: Frankie isn't muscular or built but he is still very athletic and he is also smart.
  • "Get Back Here!" Boss: Frankie wins many competitions that it is really hard to get him out of the house.
  • Giftedly Bad: Thinks that he is very talented and great at what he does in the real world and is very delusional about it, but in reality, he is pretty mediocre and lives in his famous sister's shadow. It's clear that there is is only one talented Grande and their name isn't Frankie.
  • Glory Hound: Frankie wants glory from others and he is willing to lie and manipulate in order to get it, even garner sympathy.
  • Glory Seeker: Frankie is always seeking constant affirmation and glory from others.
  • Gossipy Hens: Frankie is one of the biggest gossipers in the house.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Frankie shows strong streaks of jealousy.
  • Graceful Loser: More like flamboyant loser. He didn't mind losing, but Frankie took a long-ass time to get the hell out of the house when he got evicted, giving a goodbye statement to everybody before he left the building, and then glitter-bombing the front entrance as he walked out onto the studio.note 
  • The Hedonist: Pleasure is everything to Frankie. His entire life seems to be based on fun and pleasure.
  • Hero Killer: Was responsible for Zach's, who is a fan favourite, eviction when he backdoored him.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Frankie pressed the Big Brother Rewind twist button which not only undid his entire week as HOH, but ended up giving someone else power (Caleb for HOH and Cody for POV) and making him go from power to out the door.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: Frankie constantly brags about himself and has said that he has always felt that he lived in Ariana's shadow. It could be assumed that Frankie seeks affirmation and compliments from others because he always felt inferior to his younger sister.
  • Insufferable Genius: Frankie consistently brags about his sister, his fame and how smart he is.
  • Insult Backfire: His magnificent comeback to Zach upon winning a Battle of the Block comp all by himself:
    Zach: LIAR!
    Frankie: Well, guess what, I'm a safe liar.
  • Internalized Categorism: Frankie has made some very prejudiced remarks about homosexuality and homosexuals, especially about lesbians. This could be portrayed as internalized self hatred on behalf of Frankie.
  • Invincible Minor Minion: Frankie seemed to have proven that he was unstoppable for a long period of time due to the fact that he won endless competitions to fight and stay in the game. This is now subverted as in Week 11, Frankie was tempted into pushing the Big Brother Rewind button which activated the twist which would rewind the entire game by a week. This twist that Frankie (and everyone else) activated ended up being Frankie's ultimate undoing in the game since not only did he lose his power completely (of being both the HOH and POV holder), but his nominees (Cody and Victoria) came off the block, there was no eviction, Frankie lost HOH to Caleb, Caleb turned his back on him for Derrick and Cody and nominated him for eviction and Frankie lost POV to Cody. And to top it all off, Frankie's demise was all manipulated and orchestrated by his ally and own fellow Team America member, Derrick. Guess Frankie was not so invincible after all.
  • Irrational Hatred: Frankie really hates Nicole, Victoria, Amber and Jocasta.
  • It's All About Me: Frankie seems to love talking about himself.
  • Jerkass: Definitely not one of the nicest people in the house. In fact, Frankie was the BIGGEST jerk in the house and he was extremely unlikeable. It's no wonder why he was one of the last popular houseguests of the season as well as one of the most unpopular in Big Brother history.
  • The Juggernaut: Frankie is a competition beast and so far, it has been extremely hard for the other houseguests to take him out. Whenever Frankie happens to be in danger or happens to be huge target for eviction, Frankie ends up winning a competition which would ensure his safety. For example, the week when Frankie was nominated alongside Caleb, Frankie manages to win the BOTB competition singlehandedly without Caleb's help, ensuring his safety. Or during the Double Eviction, Derrick as HOH wanted to take Frankie out of the game, yet Frankie managed to pull off a POV win. On top of it, Frankie ended up winning the Final 5 Ho H, although due to the BB Rewind twist/button being pressed or activated, Frankie's HOH week will be deems dull and void. Whether or not Frankie will find himself vulnerable down the line is yet to be seen.
  • Keet: Frankie is very upbeat and positive.
  • Kick the Dog: Not only did Frankie frame Zach for stealing people's clothes and let him take the fall for being accused of being the Saboteur but he also planned on backdooring him. Frankie even said that he was going to euthanize Zach, stab him in the heart and bathe in his blood.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: Many of Frankie's "fans" or followers are young teens who are fans of his sister, Ariana.
  • Knight Templar Big Brother: To Ariana. He is very protective of her. It might be his one redeeming quality.
  • Know-Nothing Know-It-All: Frankie likes to believe that he is knowledgeable about a variety of different things, including past Big Brother seasons with him calling himself a "super fan", but the truth is, he really doesn't know anything at all and he is actually very incorrect or misinformed when it comes to his Big Brother facts. This is the guy who said that Janelle didn't make it to the end of the game when Janelle has made it to the Final 3 twice.
  • Lack of Empathy: Frankie showed zero guilt or remorse for betraying Zach and stabbing him in the back.
  • Large Ham: Some of Frankie's expressions and actions are over the top.
  • Lean and Mean: Frankie is not a nice person whatsoever and he is rather hateful.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Frankie is quite strong and he is also very quick, fast and athletic. It is probably because he is the smallest and slightest male houseguest in comparison to the likes of Caleb, Cody, and Derrick.
  • Light Is Not Good: Frankie wears primarily lighter colours.
  • Like an Old Married Couple: His interactions with Zach. Zach and Frankie often act like they are married including doing domesticated things together such as laundry, folding clothes, etc. Not to mention the fact that they constantly tease each other and bicker.
  • Love Makes You Evil: An interesting case in regards to himself and Zach. After Frankie backstabbed and betrayed Zach openly, this is when Frankie started to reveal his true character and did a Face–Heel Turn. Before, Frankie seemed like he was somewhat likable especially around Zach, but after he betrayed Zach, Frankie took such a 180 degree turn in his character and fell to The Dark Side. By betraying Zach the way he did openly, Frankie was basically letting everyone, including Zach, know that his true loyalties lied with Derrick (and Caleb) instead of Zach. Some fans are suggesting that Frankie betrayed Zach because he was in love with him and couldn't handle being in love with a straight guy and/or he was equally jealous of and threatened by Zach and how much attention he received, knowing that he could be the potential star of the season.
  • Magical Queer: Frankie is the sole gay houseguest of the season and he often uses his sexuality to make himself stand out and be treated differently in the house.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Frankie has shown that he's the biggest liar and schemer in the house.
  • Marathon Boss: Frankie is arguably the hardest houseguest to get rid of just because he is a very strong competitor and has won almost 50% of the season's competitions alone (5 HOH's, 3 POV's and 1 BOTB).
  • Meaningful Name: His last name "Grande" could be used to describe Frankie's gigantic and enormous ego.
  • The Mole: Frankie seems to be a personal one for Derrick as he always gathers info and tells Derrick.
  • Morality Pet: To Zach. Frankie keeps Zach from going over the edge.
  • Motor Mouth: Frankie talks a lot especially when he is nervous or excited.
  • Multicolored Hair: Frankie has a combo of pink, blonde and brown (or dark blond) hair.
  • The Munchausen: Frankie is constantly bragging about all of the events that have occurred in his life. He also doesn't stop talking about how famous he is, how popular he is and how Ariana is the best pop star ever. Some fans even think that when Frankie constantly talks about himself, they question whether or not he is lying or exaggerating.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: Frankie is very skinny but he dominates in competitions.
  • Never My Fault: Frankie never takes any responsibility for anything wrong that happens and he always chooses to put the blame on someone else other than himself.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Villain: Frankie, along with the help of all of the other houseguests, activated the Big Brother Rewind twist by pressing it, which would ensure that Frankie's HOH week will be useless.
  • Noble Bigot: Frankie is somewhat of a homophobe, a racist and a sexist. He seems to have a disdain for lesbians, makes jokes about black and Hispanics, and seems to have a dislike for women in general. Yet, Frankie has shown that he is very loyal to his allies.
  • Odd Couple/Odd Friendship: With Zach. While Zach is straight, Frankie is a flaming homosexual.
  • Opportunistic Bastard: Takes advantage of other people's plans in order to advance himself in the game.
  • Oh, Crap!: Played for Laughs: He hammed up his reaction to his eviction like he didn't see it coming and went all googly-eyed.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Christine.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Despite being unlikable, Frankie has his funny and humorous moments.
  • Plucky Guy: Frankie is very upbeat and positive about everything.
  • Poisonous Friend: Oh boy, Frankie sure had a very horrible and toxic influence on everyone around him. And he most certainly wasn't the most trustworthy or dependable ally on the block.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Has made many misogynistic and sexist comments. But then again, he's gay, and a lot of it comes from a skewed view of the sexes because he favors the company of men.
  • Real Men Cook: Frankie often cooks for the house.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Forget his wardrobe. His hair is pink.
  • The Resenter: Seems to have a disdain for Zach and Nicole.
  • The Reveal: Frankie reveals that he is the half brother of Ariana Grande to his fellow houseguests.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: He tried to campaign that he would introduce people to Ariana if they kept him in the game after betraying them and that his winnings would go to charity, which made Zach tear up in the Diary Room- but made Victor, Natalie, and Michelle laugh their butts off and mock the whole ordeal in Big Brother 18.
  • Shameless Self-Promoter: When is Frankie not promoting himself? It's obvious that Frankie did the show to promote himself, his fame, his sister and the fact that he is a "social media mogul".
  • Sissy Villain: Frankie outright calls himself the villain and says that he wants to be hated. Sure, Frankie.
  • Slave to PR: All Frankie seems to care about is upholding his reputation and his "popularity" (which is really his sister's popularity, considering that he rides Ariana's coattails for fame and popularity).
  • Slimeball: Frankie has a huge ego, is manipulative, is opportunistic, and is always trying to manipulate situations around him in his favour to get others to view him favourably.
  • Slowly Slipping Into Evil: Frankie seemed like he was a decent and likeable houseguest in the beginning but as time progressed, Frankie showed his true unlikable colours and he became more and more of a villain.
  • The Smart Guy: Frankie is super smart and is one of the most strategic players in the game.
  • Smug Snake: Frankie has the biggest ego in the house next to Caleb and he is very narcissistic.
  • Smug Super: The SMUGGEST houseguest of the entire season times one hundred.
  • The Social Expert: Frankie's social game is rather good, although many of the houseguests cannot stand him.
  • The Sociopath: Frankie shows zero empathy or remorse for others and he is completely ruthless.
  • Spoiled Brat: Frankie gets upset and pouty when things don't go his way.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Frankie probably receives the most screen time along with Zach. Comes along with being a Creator's Pet.
  • The Strategist: Frankie is probably one of the strongest strategic players in the game.
  • Stuck in Their Shadow: To his sister, Ariana Grande. While Ariana is a mega pop star who os a huge celebrity and has massive popularity, Frankie is nothing more than a mere YouTube personality and broadway star. Frankie even admits that he will always live in Ariana's shadow and that he will never be as great or famous as she is.
  • Token Gay Houseguest: Going by Big Brother tradition, Frankie is the sole gay houseguest of the season.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Frankie pressed the Big Brother Rewind button saying that "America wants him to press the button". What Frankie doesn't realize is by pressing the button, he just completely voided his HOH reign and rewound a week's worth of game where he will also be dethroned as HOH and his nominations will be null and void. There will also be no eviction as both nominees with be coming off the block. This move may be Frankie's undoing.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: When Frankie learns that his grandfather, Frank, has lost his battle with cancer, it breaks his heart and radically changes how he views the game because it puts into perspective that being cutthroat in the house is not all it's cut out to be. Following this, a lot of Frankie's unpleasantness starts to die off and he manages to slowly mend his game reputation, though his newfound compassion doesn't change the fact that he's still very much a dangerous player.
  • The Unapologetic: Frankie shows no remorse for betraying people and hurting others in the game.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Frankie never really appreciates everything that he has. He takes everything for granted, including those who are loyal to him (such as Zach for example).
  • Why Won't You Die?: The other houseguests have been trying to get rid of Frankie for weeks, but he just keeps winning endless competitions. Subverted as of Week 12, when he doesn't win either HOH or POV and ends up nominating with being the target for eviction.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Frankie says that he has carried all of the guys in the game because he has won so many competitions. The power is definitely getting to Frankie's head and his ego is most certainly exploding.
  • Worthy Opponent: Many housguests view Frankie as a threat due to being a strong physical and mental competitor.
  • You Gotta Have Pink Hair: Justified. He dyes it.

Prizes/Punishments Taken: None
Finished: 6th Place (EVICTED 3-0), JUROR #6
Jury Vote: VOTED FOR DERRICK

  • 0% Approval Rating: ASTRONOMICALLY SO. Christine is the most hated houseguest of the season and she is very unpopular. She is constantly at the bottom of approval rankings, such as Jokers Updates HG Ratings, where she was in the bottom five of least liked houseguests (along with the rest of The Detonators). It was further solidified when she was booed heavily upon her eviction. Later, this changed to Frankie... which resulted in the viewers singing Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead when the latter was evicted. Much of the hate towards Christine by the fans was because she was constantly talking badly about the other houseguests (primarily Nicole, Zach, and Donny, who were known to be the favorites of the audience) and she played very petty and personal. Her scandalous flirtmance with Cody, as a married woman, did nothing to help her image with the fans either. It is argued that Christine is one of the most hated houseguests in Big Brother history along with Jessie Godderz (from Big Brother 10 and Big Brother 11), Natalie Martinez (from Big Brother 11), Andy Herren, Aaryn Gries, GinaMarie Zimmerman and Amanda Zuckerman (all from Big Brother 15). She is also the most hated female houseguest of the season and the most hated houseguest of the season next to her ally Frankie Grande. This is the opposite of Donny, Zach and Nicole, who have near 100% Adoration Rating and are huge fan favorites of the audience.
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Could be seen as this to Cody. Although Cody didn't openly reject her, it could be assumed that Cody was not attracted to Christine whatsoever and was probably using her or flirting with her simply for strategy. Cody obviously used flirting as a strategy in the game as he was seen to be constantly flirting with all of the other female houseguests. Cody even admitted in the DR that he only saw Christine as a friend and did not see her in a romantic sense. Christine herself admitted that she would use her sexuality and flirt with the male houseguests as a strategy in attempts to get farther in the game. Cody contemplated putting Christine on the block and voting her out. He ends up following through when he votes Christine out on Double Eviction, showing that his relationship with Christine was nothing more than game and that he did not have any loyalty to her over his boys.
  • Action Girl: Used to be The Load early on in the game when she didn't prove herself competitively, but as of lately, Christine has stepped up her game and has been winning more competitions as of late, especially after she was first nominated. Her fellow Detonator alliance members even commented that they feel that Christine is a huge threat competitively. Christine is particularly strong at mental competitions and physical competitions. Christine showed how much of a physical threat she was when she almost beat Caleb in the Week 10 Endurance Competition, which involved slipping and sliding and gathering liquid to fill up a large jar (other notable past houseguests who have won this competition have been Jeff Schroeder, Shane Meaney, and Becky Burgess). The guys felt threatened by Christine's strong mental and physical prowess and even called her "a beast". Hard to believe that the girl that the alliance saw as useless in the game became one of the stronger female competitors and players along with Nicole.
  • Affably Evil: Appears polite to your face, but is one of the meanest and most ruthless people in the house. She often engages in the trash talking of other houseguests like it is no hard task for her.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: Christine was evicted by the people she considered her allies (i.e. Derrick, Frankie, Cody, Caleb), the same people whom she chose to be loyal to over her own best friend (Nicole) and her alliance. Let's not forget that when Christine is evicted, she is booed by the audience. Although the boos may have been warranted due to Christine's cheating and her hateful behavior, a small minority sympathize with Christine.
  • Alpha Bitch: Christine is definitely the meanest female houseguest of the season and she has trash talked all of the houseguests, especially the female houseguests. Nicole was her Beta Bitch in the earlier part of the game.
  • And There Was Much Rejoicing: There were many viewers who were beyond elated that Christine was evicted. Even her fellow houseguests were all happy that Christine was gone and evicted, and after they heard the boos, they acknowledged they picked the right person to evict.
  • Annoying Laugh: Christine's laugh is very intolerable and unbearable to listen to, especially when she laughs so often.
  • Arch-Enemy: Donny. For some reason, Christine has an Irrational Hatred towards him and has hated him since the beginning. She has targeted him throughout the game and constantly trash talks him to other houseguests behind his back in attempts to make the target on his back significantly bigger.
    • She's also the main enemy of a lot of houseguests. Joey's YouTube videos reveal that she hates Christine, and Victoria has been very vocal about hating her for a long time.
  • Ascended Fangirl: The token one.
  • Asshole Victim: Christine was evicted by her own allies in the game (i.e. Cody, Caleb, Frankie and Derrick). The funny thing is that earlier in the game, Christine chose the boys over her own best friend Nicole. And to make it worst, Christine is evicted almost immediately after Nicole in a Double Eviction and gets a howling reception from the studio audience on her way out. Oops.
  • The Baroness: Of the Rosa Klebb flavour.
  • Bastard Wife: Christine says she loves her husband, yet she consistently flirts with Cody without any shame.
  • Believing Their Own Lies: Christine consistently tells herself that she is not doing anything wrong by flirting with Cody even though she is married.
  • Berserk Button: When any other girl so much as looks at Cody or flirts with him.
  • Big Bad: Christine is considered to be the villain this season. This is in opposition to Donny, who is the Big Good.
    • Big Bad Duumvirate: Could be considered this with Frankie.
    • Big Bad Friend: Turned out to be one for Nicole since she had no intentions of being loyal to Nicole.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Originally had this towards Nicole.
  • Birds of a Feather: With Nicole. Both are nerdy girls who are "super fans" of Big Brother.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Appears to be a nice nerdy girl, but she is one of the cattiest female houseguests.
  • Blatant Lies: Christine told a lot of unnecessary and hateful lies in the game that were personal in nature.
  • The Bully: Christine may have not displayed intimidating behaviour outwardly towards other houseguests but her behaviour and attacks against other houseguests were very hateful and personal.
  • Butt-Monkey: Everyone (even Cody) talks about how she's either useless, or that they want to backdoor her when she stops being useful. Being booed and jeered by the audience after her eviction and the remaining houseguests acknowledging that she was the correct person to evict solidified this stance.
  • Brutal Honesty: Christine spews a lot of hatred about other houseguests.
  • Can't Take Criticism: Christine constantly talks behind others backs yet she has a problem when someone says something about her.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: In regards to Cody. She gets jealous when Cody hangs out with Amber or any other girl really.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Has zero problem with throwing her own allies, including Nicole, under the bus.
  • Conflicting Loyalty: Christine had a hard time choosing between her loyalty to Nicole and her loyalty to Cody and the boys. She chose the later and in turn, backstabbed the former.
  • Consummate Liar: Everything that comes out of Christine's mouth is most likely a lie.
  • Cowardly Lion: Christine is afraid of going against the boys alliance, so much that she nominates her own ally in Nicole. Not to mention that when Zach was HOH and asked Christine to take one for the alliance by going on the block because she had never been nominated, she refused to do anything for her alliance which only showed how untrustworthy she was.
  • The Corrupter: Christine is a toxic influence and brings out the worst in everyone.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Christine appeared to be The Load, someone who was useless to her alliance and couldn't win any competitions, but as the game progressed, Christine became significantly more badass and competitive.
  • The Cynic: Christine is very negative and pessimistic by nature.
  • Dark Action Girl: Christine has proven that she can be strongly competitive when she wants to be.
  • The Dark Chick: Of The Detonators alliance.
  • Dating Catwoman: Christine made it look like she was humoring Cody to take a pass at him, and Cody was harshly criticized by the other houseguests and viewers alike for being flirtatious and overly touchy with one another.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Christine is very sarcastic and snide.
  • Death Glare: Gave many of these to Donny, Zach, Amber and Brittany.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Around Cody, she loses her bitchiness.
  • The Determinator: Christine was very much a competitor and a fighter, even though she appeared to be weak in the beginning of the game.
  • Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead: Many fans (and the houseguests) were absolutely elated when Christine was evicted. To top it all off, Christine was booed upon her eviction.
  • Disc Two Final Boss: Christine is evicted by a 3-0 vote. She was the person at the helm of the Detonators after the Bomb Squad fell when Devin got evicted, but her hostility made her an eventual target when she finally snapped at her own allies.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Christine obviously had a huge crush on Cody.
  • Dirty Coward: Tried to throw the final Battle of the Block to eliminate Donny.
  • Driven by Envy: Everything that Christine does or says is driven by the fact that she is jealous.
  • Dogged Nice Girl: Despite being married, Christine can't seem to hide her infatuation for Cody.
  • The Dragon: Could be seen as this for Derrick, even though Christine is the obvious villain or Big Bad of the season along with Frankie.
    • Co-Dragons: With Frankie, Cody, Caleb and Victoria for Derrick.
    • Demoted to Dragon: Although Christine (along with Frankie) is perceived to be the Big Bad or the villain of the season, she is actually The Dragon for Derrick.
    • Devour the Dragon: Derrick nominated Christine during Double Eviction and is evicted. Therefore, Derrick is directly responsible for Christine's eviction.
    • It's Personal with the Dragon: Christine's major enemy in the game was Donny, who is considered to be The Hero of the season. It is uncertain as to why Christine has such a strong Irrational Hatred towards Donny but it seems to be a personal or petty vendetta against him that doesn't really have anything to do with the game. Christine has mentioned that she thinks Donny is a lot smarter than he lets on and that he is trying to hide who he really is with strategy. She has been actively targeting him since the beginning. Donny is also not a fan of Christine because he has stated that he does not respect Christine and the way she played the game, which is a game that lacks morals and integrity.
    • The Heavy: Christine shares this role with Frankie but to a lesser extent.
  • Entitled Bitch: Christine comes off as entitled and feels that she deserves to be there over other people.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Christine doesn't understand how anyone can like such a good person like Donny.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Nicole. Nicole and Christine are basically the same person and have a lot in common (i.e. both wear glasses, both are gossip girls, both are nerdy girls, both are super fans of Big Brother, both are Girl Next Door types), although heir personalities are inherently different. Nicole is a Nice Girl with shades of Lovable Alpha Bitch while Christine is more of an Alpha Bitch.
  • Evil Gloating: Christine is always bragging and gloating.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Christine's laughing was over the top.
  • Evil Is Petty: Christine's backstabbing and hatred towards other houseguests are very personal.
  • Fag Hag: Christine has a close relationship with Frankie. Other than Nicole, Frankie was Christine's closest ally.
  • Fair Weather Friend: In regards to Nicole, Christine didn't seem to show any remorse for backstabbing her and turning her back on her when Nicole was in trouble in the game.
  • False Friend: Ultimately to Nicole. Christine was allies with Nicole since the beginning but she backstabbed and betrayed her when she ended up choosing the boys club aka The Detonators over her. Nicole was ultimately hurt over this and she no longer trusted Christine in the game.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Christine pretends to be nice and friendly, but is actually a complete bitch.
  • Femme Fatale: Christine is using sexuality and flirting with Cody in order to progress herself further in the game.
  • Foil: To Victoria. Both are accused by the other guests as being useless (Christine) or floating (Victoria), and are often used as pawns for The Detonators. But Christine is generally mean, while Victoria is generally nice. Victoria also had darker hair, skin and clothes, while Christine has lighter hair and skin, and will wear brighter colors. Christine is more of a Tomboy while Victoria is more of a Girly Girl. Christine dresses more casually while Victoria tends to dress up (Christine seems to favour more casual clothing while Victoria favours designer and trendy clothing).
  • For the Evulz: Likes to spread lies about other houseguests for her own enjoyment and pettiness, including the lie that she had created about Hayden and Victoria kissing.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Christine was originally seen as a floater and as useless by her own alliance. But after she is nominated, she unleashes the beast inside of her and becomes more aggressive, competitive and edgy.
  • Freudian Excuse: A really sad one. This podcast reveals Christine had an awful experience in the fifth grade with girls talking behind her back. It became her Berserk Button to the degree that It's Personal. Basically, when that happened in the house, out came the menacing side of her.
  • Functional Genre Savvy: Christine is a Big Brother super fan after all. She correctly identify the POV competition was the counting game at the Final 8.
  • Genki Girl: Christine is very high energy.
  • Giggling Villain: Christine laughs and giggles over everything.
  • Good Adultery, Bad Adultery: Of the Bad Adultery type.
  • Gossipy Hen: By far, one of the biggest trash talkers in the house.
  • Graceful Loser: By far, the most gracious jury member and was very kind to both Derrick and Cody, congratulating both for their games. She also said she wasn't bitter at all.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Christine openly admits she is jealous of pretty girls.
  • Happily Married: To her husband Tim.
  • Hates Everyone Equally: Christine seems to hate or dislike all of her fellow houseguests with the exception of Cody. Though she makes it clear to the audience that she's only using Cody to help her own game.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Nicole early on in the season. This is now subverted as Christine had turned on Nicole and betrayed her.
  • Hot Guy, Ugly Girl: In regards to her relationship with Cody. While Cody is physically attractive and is a model, Christine is very homely looking and below average in looks.
  • Humiliation Conga: Betrayed by her own alliance (who were all too happy to see her out in the end) and was booed upon leaving the house. Then enters the jury house to find Donny (of all people!) making fun of her laughter, and everyone is happy to see her because she's not in the game.
  • The Hyena: Much to Victoria's extreme annoyance. We even get a montage of Christine laughing at the most random things.
  • Hypocrite: Tried to spread lies about Hayden kissing Victoria, calling it disgusting. Yet, she was openly flirting with Cody.
  • Ice Queen: Christine is cold, mean and icy. She is not a nice or likeable person.
  • Irrational Hatred: For some reason, she really does not like Donny, Zach, Brittany, Jocasta, and Amber.
  • It's All About Me: Christine is very selfish and entitled.
  • Jerkass: Not as much as Caleb or Devin, but she's still extremely unlikable.
    • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Christine is one of the meanest people in the house and she is very unlikeable.
    • Took a Level in Jerkass: As the season progressed, Christine displayed very unkind and jerkish behavior and became more and more unlikeable.
  • Karmic Death: Christine is immediately evicted right after Nicole is evicted, the same person that Christine backstabbed earlier in the game, and gets booed by the audience and immediately disowned by the house. Christine was also a very mean, vile person whom was incredibly unlikeable so her eviction could be seen as deserved after the way she backstabbed Nicole and talked bad about her fellow houseguests.
  • Knight Templar: One of the most ruthless people in the game.
  • Iconic Outfit: A dyed pompadour (more recently preferring gold) a touch of glitter around the eyes, and a sequined hashtag tee.
  • Lack of Empathy: Showed no remorse for stabbing Nicole in the back and being very hateful about other houseguests.
  • The Lad-ette: Christine is clearly one of the boys.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Christine is evicted by her own allies during a Double Eviction....right after Nicole is evicted, the same person that Christine had backstabbed and turned on for her allies (Cody, Caleb, Frankie, Derrick). Ouch.
  • Laughably Evil: When is Christine not laughing about something?
  • Lazy Bum: Spends most of her day lounging around with Cody.
  • Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: Christine is the Dark Feminine to Nicole's Light Feminine.
  • Light Is Not Good: Wears lighter colours but does not have good intentions.
  • The Load: Doesn't seem to be all that good at competitions. Her alliance also complains that she really does not do much for their alliance. Overlaps with Obfuscating Stupidity - Christine admittedly threw challenges.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Christine is one of the biggest liars and schemers in the game.
  • Meganekko: She wears glasses.
  • The Mole: Christine had a secret alliance with Nicole and Hayden but she was also aligned with the Bomb Squad and fed them information.
  • Morality Pet: Cody is one for her.
  • Nerd: Christine's glasses give it away.
  • Nerd Glasses: This is an obvious one. Zing-Bot taunted her that they didn't make her look any better, and considering that they mask her eyebrows and exemplify her nose, she looks almost like a gender-flipped Skrillex!
  • Odd Couple: With Cody.
  • Odd Friendship: With Cody.
  • Pet the Dog: Her moments with Cody. Towards everyone else, she is a bitch and she is very catty.
  • The Pig Pen: Christine doesn't bathe or shower often and has bad hygiene.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Cody and Frankie.
  • Poisonous Friend: Christine has no problem backstabbing her allies to further her game.
  • The Resenter: Towards Donny and Zach. She has an Irrational Hatred towards both of them.
  • Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: Christine was betrayed by the people she helped to eliminate Nicole and was booed upon being evicted.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: Formerly with Nicole. This ends when Christine nominates her for eviction, albeit at the suggestion of her Detonators alliance members (and partly, in order to avoid becoming the alliance's next target).
  • Running Gag: Her ridiculous laughing. It was even a segment on the show.
  • Shadow Archetype: For Nicole.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: Her glasses are part of her signature.
  • Smug Snake: Christine is very arrogant and full of herself.
  • The Smurfette Principle: She is the only girl in The Detonators alliance.
  • Sore Loser: Upon being evicted, she simply got up and walked out the house without saying anything to anyone. She was clearly bitter about her eviction. The horrid reaction the audience gave her when she walked out the front door virtually told her this, and she sucked up when she returned for the finale.
  • Spoiled Brat: Acts very entitled.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: The way Christine acts or behaves all depends on who she is interacting with.
  • Tattoo as Character Type: Has various tattoos all over her body.
  • The Farmer and the Viper: The Viper to Nicole's Farmer.
  • Those Two Girls: Formerly with Nicole.
  • Tomboy: In comparison to the other female houseguests, Christine is more tomboyish.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Christine is the Tomboy to Nicole and Victoria's Girly Girl.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Christine nominated her original ally Nicole and trusted the guys over her. She also stood by as one by one, the only people who would take her past the final six were evicted.
  • Took a Level in Badass: After Christine was nominated for the first time, she began to become more competitive.
  • Toxic Friend Influence: Christine was extremely hateful and even made Nicole come off as catty whenever they interacted with each other.
  • Tsundere: Type A, particularly towards Cody.
  • Villainous Crush: Has a huge one on Cody. Her infatuation with Cody is so obvious that both the houseguests and the viewers have commented on how inappropriate their relationship is.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Christine used to be best friends with Nicole before Christine backstabbed and betrayed Nicole for the all boys alliance.
  • Yandere: Christine is this for Cody, because it's clear that she had a strong infatuation with Cody. She was a Clingy Jealous Girl towards him and became a borderline Stalker with a Crush when it comes to him. She is always in Cody's space trying to cuddle with him and she follows him around the house whenever possible. She was also noticeably jealous when other female houseguests would interact, flirt or act friendly towards Cody. Whenever Cody would flirt with Amber, Brittany, or Nicole, Christine would end up being in the background and giving all of the girls interacting with Cody extremely dirty and petty looks. Her infatuation with Cody isn't anywhere near the same level as Caleb's infatuation with Amber was, but it was pretty close. Also, considering that Christine was married and was acting jealous and clingy towards Cody made their relationship come off as more unfavorable.
  • Your Cheating Heart: Although she's married, she continuously flirts with Cody. Other houseguests have pointed this out, even Nicole, who criticized Christine's flirting in a conversation with Victoria for this reason. Christine later stressed in a diary room entry that she's "not doing anything stupid," and that her flirting is merely a way to help him get her further in the game.

Jury Vote: VOTED FOR DERRICK

  • 100% Adoration Rating: Nicole is one of the most beloved contestants this season next to Donny and Zach, and ranked third in overall popularity at the end of the season. Unfortunately, it was too good to last, because Season 18 introduced us to a meaner and tougher Nicole who made moves more like Christine would.
  • Action Girl: Has won multiple competitions and is the strongest female competitor of the season.
  • Action Girlfriend: Could be seen as this with Hayden. Nicole was much more active and competitive than Hayden while they were both still in the game and she won many more competitions than he did.
  • Adorkable: Her thick-rimmed glasses really really make her look like this.
  • Arch-Enemy: Frankie. Nicole has been after him throughout the game due to the fact that he has targeted her and also the fact that he is a strong competitor.
    • Christine. They used to be best friends but Christine betrayed and backstabbed Nicole when she chose the boys over her.
  • Ascended Fangirl: She's a superfan of Big Brother.
  • Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Her moments with Zach. Despite Nicole and Zach constantly teasing each other in the game, Nicole and Zach also admit to liking each other on a personal level. Nicole even admitted that if she were a fan watching the season at home, she would like Zach.
  • Badass Adorable: Nicole being badass doesn't lessen her adorableness.
  • Badass in Distress: Nicole hwas nominated a total of six times and evicted twice.
  • Back from Eviction: Nicole barely beat out Jocasta for the chance to re-enter the game. Unfortunately for her, like all other re-entries so far in the US run, she gets the revolving door treatment very soon afterward and only manages to bump up her final standing by two more places.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Nicole wears tops that reveal her stomach.
  • Battle Couple: Averted with Hayden. If Hayden had stayed in the game longer than he did, they might have qualified for this trope.
  • Beta Bitch: Was this to Christine's Alpha Bitch in the earlier part of the game. Along with Christine, Nicole was one of the catty girls of the season and trash talked about all of the houseguests, especially the other female houseguests (in particular Amber).
  • Betty and Veronica: Is the Betty to Victoria's Veronica and Hayden's Archie.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Nicole may be a "nice girl" but she definitely has a catty side when provoked.
  • Birds of a Feather: With Christine. Both are nerdy girls who are "super fans" of Big Brother.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Along with Christine, Nicole is one of the cattiest girls in the house. She has talked crap about almost all of the other female houseguests, including Christine.
  • Break the Cutie: See Born Unlucky and Butt-Monkey.
  • Broken Pedestal: Thought Derrick is an amazing person and player, yet he was the reason why she was evicted from the game twice.
  • Born Unlucky: Nicole has been nominated six times, has been a Have Not back to back, has had her closest ally (Hayden) evicted, had her best friend (Christine) backstab her, has had to wear a costume as a punishment twice and was evicted from the game twice. Poor Nicole.
  • Butt-Monkey: Nicole has been nominated a total of six times, has been a Have Not back to back, and was evicted twice.
  • The Chew Toy: See Butt-Monkey.
  • The Chick: Could be seen as this of the season.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: In regards to Hayden and sometimes Cody.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Nicole is rather quirky and offbeat.
  • Competition Freak: Nicole won multiple competitions and was the strongest female competitor of the season.
  • Cry Cute: Nicole looks really adorable when crying.
  • Cute Bruiser: Nicole is cute but not to be underestimated.
  • Cute, but Cacophonic: Many fans complain about Nicole's voice and it sounding whiny and annoying (it should be noted, though, that Nicole has a very noticeable Midwestern aah-ccent).
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: Nicole shows spades of this.
  • The Cutie: Nicole comes off as idealistic, cute and innocent.
  • Damsel in Distress: Nicole sometimes needed the support of Hayden, although she could stand up or herself.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Nicole can be witty at times.
  • The Determinator: Nicole is one of the most persistent and determined players in the game and she NEVER quits or gives up.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: In regards to her relationship with Hayden.
  • The Ditz: Is highly naive and gullible.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Nicole loves being barefoot, and wears shoes and socks next to never. She's a country girl, after all! It extends to her real life outside the house, as on her Instagram, she posted pictures of herself and Hayden fooling around a basketball court in their bare feet together. She stayed this way in Season 18 as well. And this post of her on a horse pretty much seals the deal.
  • Down on the Farm: Nicole is a farm girl from a small town in Michigan.
  • Dude Magnet: All of the male houseguests liked Nicole as a person including Hayden, Zach, Cody and Donny.
  • Dumb Blonde: Didn't know that Oregon was a state.
  • Everyone Loves Blondes: Nicole was well-liked by all of the male houseguests in the house, including Hayden, Zach, Cody and Donny. She seemed to be a romantic interest for Hayden, Zach and Cody, although Hayden was the only one who was really serious about his interest in Nicole. Zach had repeatedly said that he was attracted to Nicole and that he would date her outside of the house. And Cody flirted with Nicole while in the house, although Cody's interest in Nicole was more of a friendship and a flirtmance than any actual romantic interest on Cody's behalf.
  • Farmer's Daughter: Nicole seems to be a farmer's girl. In her intro of the season, Nicole was shown to be driving a tractor on a farm, indicating that she comes from a farmer's background.
  • Foil: To Christine. Although they are very similar in some ways and share a lot in common (such as being blonde, being super fans of Big Brother and wearing glasses), Nicole is likeable and Christine is unlikeable. Nicole is more of The Ditz, while Christine is not. Nicole was aligned with the good side while Christine was aligned with the bad side. Nicole loved Donny while Christine hated Donny. Nicole hated Cody while Christine loved Cody. Nicole is a Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold and Dumb Blonde while Christine is an evil blonde.
  • The Fool: Continuously trusted Derrick and Cody instead of seeing or understanding that they were the biggest threat in the house. It ended up costing her the game. However, later on, when she returns to the game, she had a chance to strike against both Derrick and Cody, however, as suspected, she fell under Derrick's spell once more and was completely mystified by him once again, which ultimately caused her demise a second time.
  • Fun Size: Nicole is one of the smallest girls in the house, but is the strongest female competitor. The fact that Nicole is the smallest girl in the house makes her more loveable.
  • Genius Ditz: "What does El Cuatro mean?"note 
  • Genki Girl: Can be very upbeat and positive, especially when she is passionate or excited about something.
  • Girly Bruiser: Nicole is very girly, but she is the strongest female competitor. Nicole is probably the strongest female competitor of the season along with Amber and Christine.
  • Girly Girl: Very girly and feminine, despite having some slightly tomboyish qualities. Nicole could be described as a very girly tomboy.
  • Girl Next Door: Hails from a small town in Michigan. She seems to be a sweet, friendly girl whom everyone would want to befriend. She also seems to be a farm girl who comes from very humble beginnings.
  • Glurge Addict: Nicole loves anything that is sweet and cute. She is shown to like things that are adorable and cute and she has also shown that she seems to like sugar and sweet things.
  • Good Counterpart: To Christine, her Evil Counterpart. Although Nicole and Christine are both nerdy girls who are super fans of Big Brother, Nicole is a nice girl and Christine is a mean girl. Which is interesting because earlier in the game, Nicole and Christine were very close and they were best friends. However, that all changed when Christine decided to turn on Nicole in favour of being with the boys alliance (who eventually threw her to the wolves) and as a result, did a Face–Heel Turn.
  • Goofy Suit: Nicole has had to wear two suits or unitards as punishments; the first one being a Frog Suit and the second one being a Germatard. Nicole wearing the suits only added to her adorableness and her likability.
  • Gossipy Hen: Nicole is one of the biggest gossipers in the house alongside Christine. She along with Christine have talked and gossiped about almost every single houseguest in the house, mostly the female houseguests in particular. Nicole and Christine have both gossiped and have stated that they hated Amber and constantly trash talked her.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Nicole shows traits of jealousy towards Victoria's friendship with Hayden. Although it is interesting that Nicole was jealous over Hayden and Victoria's relationship, because Nicole at the time had thought of Hayden as just a friend and really had no romantic feelings for him.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Nicole is generally a good hearted person. She is sweet, loving and caring although she does have a bit of a catty side to her.
  • Heartbroken Badass: Her showmantic partner Hayden was evicted. And then implied in real life when Hayden and Nicole didn't work out and became Just Friends.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Christine and Victoria, although it is subverted in the former's case as Christine had turned on Nicole. After Christine had turned on Nicole, Nicole became significantly closer to Victoria and bonded over their mutual hatred or dislike of Christine, their mutual like and respect for Derrick and their mutual feeling o0f being ostracized by the rest of the house.
  • Hospital Hottie: Is a nursing student. It is uncertain as to whether she is working as a nurse yet.
  • The Idealist: Nicole is extremely idealistic in the way that she thinks.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: One of her physical defining features and it matches her Hair of Gold.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Donny. Nicole was very close with Donny and had a strong bond with him in the house. She had even said that she saw Donny as an uncle.
  • Just Friends: In regards to Hayden. This is later subverted as Nicole starts to reciprocate Hayden's affections and after the season is over, Nicole and Hayden admit that they are dating and are going to pursue a romantic relationship.
  • Kawaiiko: Nicole has some very child like and innocent qualities about her.
  • Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: Nicole is the Light Feminine to Christine's Dark Feminine.
  • Like Brother and Sister: Nicole's relationship with Zach came off as this. Zach and Nicole often teased each other playfully.
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: Nicole is catty but also likeable.
  • Manic Pixie Dream Girl: For Hayden.
  • Meganekko: A super-fan of Big Brother with thick-rimmed glasses.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Many male viewers find Nicole endearing, cute and appealing.
  • My Greatest Second Chance: Won the Jury competition that gave her a second chance at winning half a million dollars. This was subverted as of Week 10. Not subverted, however, with her second chance in Big Brother 18, where she actually won in the second time playing the game (though at the cost of her nice girl reputation).
  • Naïve Everygirl: Nicole is incredibly trusting and loyal to her friends.
  • Nerd/{Nerds Are Sexy: Nicole is a nerdy girl and she wears glasses.
  • Nerd Glasses: Part of Nicole's signature, which makes her look like the female version of Ian Terry.
  • Nice Girl: Is well-liked by the majority of the house.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Nicole comes off as dumb but she is actually rather strategic.
  • Odd Couple: With Hayden.
  • Odd Friendship: With Hayden and Zach.
  • Piñata Enemy: Even though Nicole seemed to have been a competition beast during her first time in the game, Nicole was very easy to take out during her second chance at the game and when the opportunity struck, Derrick took his shot.
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: One of the smallest females in the house and also he strongest female competitor of the season.
  • The Pollyanna/Plucky Girl: Nicole is very upbeat.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: With Christine until she put her on the block.
  • Running Gag: She always gets put in costumes.
  • Sacrificial Lion: Zach wanted Donny to stay in the house, so he pushed for Nicole to be put on the block so that Nicole would go home over Donny. It worked.
  • Secret Keeper: Originally, for Victoria's hair loss. She covered for her while Victoria took off her extensions to shower.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: Nicole looks rather different when she dresses up.
  • Ship Tease: With Hayden, Zach and Cody.
  • Shrinking Violet: Usually doesn't speak unless directly spoken to.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: In regards to Hayden.

  • Those Two Girls: Formerly with Christine.
  • Token Good Houseguest: Nicole is considered to be the last likeable or "good" houseguest left in the house after Hayden, Zach and Donny were evicted.

Jury Vote: VOTED FOR CODY

  • 100% Adoration Rating: Everyone loves Donny and he is very popular. He is a huge fan favourite amongst the viewers. Out of over 10 million votes for America's Favourite, Donny had over half of them. The only people who came close to him were Nicole and Zach.
  • The Ace: Donny is the strongest male competitor of the season along with Frankie. He has won a total of 6 competitions within a span of 8 weeks.
  • Action Guy: Donny has won multiple competitions.
  • Actually Pretty Funny: Thought Devin's suspicions of him being ex-military were this.
  • Adorkable: Donny is very endearing and lovable.
  • A Father to His Men: Donny genuinely cared about all of his housemates regardless of whether he was aligned with them or not. He was the most empathetic of the bunch by far and was always extending kindness to everyone. This was shown when he won Power of Veto and used it to save Jocasta from the block and also, when Donny comforted a crying and distraught Nicole after Hayden was unexpectedly evicted during the first Double Eviction.
  • A Friend in Need: Donny is always there for his friends, especially for Nicole after Hayden was unexpectedly evicted.
  • All-Loving Hero: Doesn't seem to really hate anyone in the house.
  • Arch-Enemy: Christine. Aside from the fact that Donny doesn't personally like her, he also doesn't like how she has targeted him since the beginning of the game and has repeatedly trash talked him behind his back to other houseguests. Donny also said that he does not respect Christine nor does he respect the way she played the game.
  • Ascended Fanboy: Donny claims he has seen every single episode from every single season.
  • Audience Surrogate: Most of the viewing audience saw the show through Donny's eyes.
  • Badass Adorable: Donny being a beast in competitions does not lessen his cuteness.
  • Badass Beard: He sports a large and impressive one.
  • Badass in Distress: Donny has found himself targeted and nominated on numerous occasions, yet he always fights to win when he has to.
  • Bad Liar: Donny is terrible at lying, probably because it goes against his nature.
  • Bash Brothers: With Frankie and Derrick (his fellow Team America members) and Hayden and Zach.
  • Battle of Wits: Often with Derrick. Donny had been onto Derrick's game since the start and Derrick had realized that Donny was onto him, so Derrick had struck first against Donny and had him evicted from the house.
  • Beard of Sorrow: Considering that Donny was constantly ostracized by the other houseguests, Donny was shown to be rather lonely and every single one of the people he did become friends with, ended up being evicted.
  • Being Good Sucks: Donny is the kindest and nicest houseguest yet he is consistently ostracized by the other houseguests.
  • Berserk Button: Being lied to and betrayed doesn't make Donny very happy. Also not treating others with kindness.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Donny is a very Nice Guy.....but NEVER underestimate him. Donny is very smart and he can throw out the snark to others like no other.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: Donny is very shy, socially awkward and introverted but he is probably the biggest mental threat in the game next to Derrick.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Although he is significantly older than almost all of the houseguests, Donny had this towards Jocasta, Frankie, Hayden, Nicole, Derrick, Cody, Zach, Paola and Amber.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Donny himself would probably deny it, but after winning the veto competition for week 3 on behalf of Jocasta, who had been nominated but ill and unable to play, AND being the one to knock Devin (who was the main target) out of the competition...judging from the other houseguests reaction to the whole thing, Donny was all over this trope.
  • Big Good: Donny is most definitely the kindest houseguest of the season. Could be seen as this in opposition to Christine, who is the Big Bad.
  • Birds of a Feather: With Jocasta. Both are from the South and both are religious.
  • Bittersweet Ending: Even though Donny took steps to indicate he was going to be on Big Brother, he lost his job as groundskeeper at Cabarrus County School District in North Carolina- a job he held for a steady six years- simply because he was gone too long and a new school year started and they needed new help accordingly, but ended up with $25,000.
  • Born Lucky: Has been targeted since week one yet he continuously wins competitions when he has to.
  • Breakout Character: Won America's Favourite Houseguest (Fan Favorite) at the end of the season.
  • Break the Cutie: Was constantly ostracized by the other houseguests and targeted from week to week. All of the houseguests also talked badly sabot him behind his back and his fellow Team America members (Derrick and Donny) threw Donny to the wolves and decided to not have his back in the game. Poor Donny.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Was apparently offered jobs at NASA and is one of the smarter (on paper) Houseguests this season. Yet he works as a groundskeeper.
    • Made funnier by winning the first Power of Veto simply by walking through the obstacle course to reach his letters.
    • YMMV on that one; several other contestants were trying for longer words than Donny ended up spelling, only to either misspell them or not have enough letters, allowing Donny to win. On the other hand, Donny's slow and steady pace might have benefitted him vs. everyone else's frantic scramble.
  • Broken Tears: Donny often cries when he talks about feeling shunned from the rest of the house.
  • Brutal Honesty: There are times when Donny won't hesitate to spill the truth tea as much as possible.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Donny is very innocent looking and actually very friendly, but many houseguests were very intimidated by him and thought that he was a huge threat because many thought that not only was her a competition beast but that he was an actual genius. They also believed that Donny wasn't really who he said he was.
  • Butt-Monkey: Donny has been targeted since week one because he is an outsider.
  • The Cape: He's The Hero, the Big Good, an Ideal Hero and an All-Loving Hero all rolled into one. Donny is just the epitome of a good person through and through. There is not a bad or mean bone in his body.
  • Cartwright Curse: A friendship version. Every single friend that Donny made in the house ended up being evicted week after week, including Paola, Amber, Brittany, Jocasta, Hayden, Nicole, and Zach.
  • The Cassandra/Cassandra Truth: Donny tried to inform many houseguests including Cody and Christine that Derrick was the puppet master and that he was controlling the game since the beginning but nobody listened to him and instead, decided to target him constantly.
  • Catchphrase: "FEAR THE BEARD!"
  • The Chew Toy: Donny was constantly targeted and ostracized by the other houseguests.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Donny has the constant need to help others, especially his friends, in the game.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Only In-Universe. Outside of the show and to the audience, Donny is seen as the Only Sane Man who says and thinks almost exactly what they are thinking.
  • Competition Freak: Donny has won multiple competitions and always wins when he has to.
  • The Confidant: Was this for Nicole, Hayden and Zach. Donny would give them advice about game related things and non-game related things.
  • The Conscience: Donny has the most morals and values in the game. He often reminds other players, in particular Zach, of being overly impulsive and doing something before thinking.
  • Contrived Coincidence: He is the groundskeeper of a school that Rachel Reilly (Big Brother 12 and Big Brother 13) and Elissa Reilly (Big Brother 15) attended - what an odd convenience. Singer Kellie Pickler had also attended the same school.
  • Cool Loser: Donny is very likeable yet he is an outsider and does not fit in with the other houseguests.
  • Cool Old Guy: Donny's not that old (he's only 42), but he's pretty amusing.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Donny isn't a moron, but looks and acts a bit dopey. However he's proven himself one of the strongest competitors this season, winning multiple competitions and surviving multiple weeks on the block.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: The "America's Favorite Houseguest" contest ended up being this; with 16 houseguests to choose from, over 10 million votes were cast, and more than half of them went solely to Donny.
  • The Cutie: Donny is so loveable that it is hard not to root for him. For a 42 year old man, he's actually very adorable and without his beard, he's very handsome.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Donny is actually pretty witty and funny.
  • Deep South: Donny hails from North Carolina.
  • The Determinator: Has been a target since the beginning of the game but has fought hard to stay in the game.
  • Doomed Moral Victor: Despite it being him vs. the rest of the house, Donny always finds the willpower and the strength to keep going and win when he has to.
  • Embodiment of Virtue: Compassionate, loyal, loving, respectful and empathetic? Donny definitely fits the bill.
  • The Everyman: Donny doesn't seem to have charisma or star quality, but he is very popular with the viewing audience and people sympathize with him the most.
  • Everything Trying to Kill You: Everyone in the house was trying to get Donny out. This is either because they saw him as unhelpful or too untrustworthy.
  • The Fettered: Donny plays the most noble game and has the most integrity.
  • Fire-Forged Friends/Friendly Enemy: With Derrrick throughout the game. Donny and Derrick were aligned with each other because they wee both members of Team America along with Frankie. Because of this they both had a degree of loyalty to each other. But at the same time Donny was onto Derricks game and knew that he was the head of the snake, the puppet master manipulating everyone and pulling all the strings. Because of this Derrrick wanted to get Donny evicted because Derrick knew that Donny was into him. Derrick kept Donny in the game for as long as he could but eventually had to have him evicted because Donny was onto Derricks game.
  • For Happiness: Donny wants everyone, especially his friends and allies, to be happy.
  • Four Is Death: Donny is the fourth member of the jury.
  • Genius Bruiser: Donny is very strategically smart and brilliant.
  • The Good Guys Always Win: Subverted Trope. Donny was evicted during Week 9 by a unanimous vote. Donny did end up winning the Americas Favorite Houseguest prize at the end of the season though.
  • Good Counterpart: Could be seen as this to Derrick. Although both were aligned due to being part of Team America, Donny is more noble, loyal and honest while Derrick is more manipulative, scheming and backstabbing.
  • Good Is Not Dumb: Donny may be the kindest houseguest but he is also very smart.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Donny is the kindest but he's also intensely competitive.
  • Good Is Old-Fashioned: Donny is from the South and he seems to have very traditional values as well as traditional ways of thinking. It doesn't make Donny any less cooler though.
  • Good Ol' Boy: Donny is Southern from North Carolina.
  • Good Samaritan: There is never a time when Donny is not helping someone.
  • Graceful Loser: Took losing rather well, although he was upset that his fellow Team America members (Derrick and Frankie) did not have has back.
  • The Heart: The kindest houseguest of the season by far.
  • The Hero: Many people say that Donny is the hero of this season. Considering his actions, they're not that far off.
  • The Hero Dies: After several trips to the block as a pawn, Donny is evicted by a 5-0 vote.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: Donny is the nicest and kindest houseguest and he is very nice to everyone yet all of the other houseguests label him as a schemer, as a liar and as someone who doesn't have good intentions in the game.
  • Heroic Spirit: Donny is a fighter and he has fought the hardest to stay in the game despite the obstacles, everyone being against him and being targeted from week to week since day one.
    • Heroic Willpower: Every single houseguest has been against him since the beginning and he has always been a number one target. However, he keeps fighting through it by winning competitions when he has to to stay in the game.
  • He Cleans Up Nicely: Donny is actually handsome without his beard and looks completely different.
  • Hidden Depths: He is very surprisingly good at puzzles.
  • Honor Before Reason: Donny plays with the most morals, honesty and integrity.
  • Hope Bringer: Always tries to make other houseguests feel better and believe in themselves.
  • Ideal Hero: Donny is The Hero of the season. He represents loyalty, honesty and integrity.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Donny has the kindest and purest heart out of all the houseguests.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With the majority of the house. Special mention to Paola, Hayden, Nicole and Zach.
  • The Last DJ: Donny played with the most honour and integrity in the game and because he didn't always want to follow what his fellow houseguests wanted (primarily his fellow Team America members), Donny was blacklisted and thrown to the wolves. This is evidenced when both of his fellow Team America players, Derrick and Frankie voted him out and had him evicted.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Doesn't seem to have that many clothes.
  • Magnetic Hero: Donny is very loved by Big Brother viewers.
  • Memetic Badass: invoked He became one in-universe for a short time. Devin and Caleb somehow got it in their heads that Donny was lying about his past and who he really is, and an observation about the hair growth on Donny's legs (It Makes Sense in Context) lead Caleb to theorize he was some sort of ex-military or secret agent. Donny lampshades in the diary room "they all think I'm more dangerous than I seem. *beat* And I'm not."
  • Morality Pet: Donny is one for Zach.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: Donny is not athletically built and muscular like Cody, Hayden, Zach and Caleb but he is still a very strong competitor and won multiple competitions, even out competing the younger, athletic guys.
  • Nice Guy: The nicest person in the house by far. Especially when he's able to calm down a very emotional Nicole after Hayden's eviction. His reasoning for using the Power of Veto in Week 4 on Jocasta (so she could recuperate after becoming ill during the Battle of the Block, and not have to worry about being up for eviction) also shows his noble side.
  • Nice Hat: Always wearing a cap.
  • No Social Skills: Donny is very socially awkward and doesn't seem to fit in with the rest of the houseguests.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Zigzagged. Many houseguests quickly became suspicious that his somewhat goofy demeanor was a put-on, and this was further bolstered by his competence in competitions. Nothing about Donny's way of talking or dealing with people was fake. But of course, as more and more houseguests started trying to evict him, he had to feign a lack of suspicion so as not to incite his fellow players. He also had to go along with Team America's missions without revealing their existence in the game. And yet also, he was generally oblivious to Donny's and Frankie's plans to dispose of him. But when in moments of doubt about that alliance, he acted unconcerned to them.
  • Only Sane Man: When you compare Donny with the rest of the other houseguests, Donny is the most logical and rational thinker.
  • The Paragon: Donny is the epitome of virtue and nobility.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Jocasta.
  • The Pollyanna: Donny is very positive and hopeful by nature.
  • Shrinking Violet: Donny is shy and introverted.
  • Socially Awkward Hero: Donny is very socially awkward which only makes him more endearing.
  • Southern-Fried Genius: Many of the houseguests thought Donny was very intelligent and a genius.
  • Southern Gentleman: Donny is from North Carolina and he is the kindest gentleman.
  • Too Good for This Sinful Earth: Donny was without a doubt, the kindest and most noble houseguest of the season...and he ended up being evicted because everyone thought he was a schemer, a liar and a big threat.
  • True Companions: With Nicole.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Despite being willing to work with Devin, Devin had absolutely no plans to work with Donny, trying to get the Bomb Squad to turn against Donny. However this failed, and after Devin turned on the Bomb Squad he went back to Donny to try and mend fences.
  • Younger Than They Look: Donny is only 42 but looks rather older mostly due to his beard. If you see him without his beard, he actually looks fairly attractive.

  • 100% Adoration Rating: Zach was very well liked and popular with the audience. He had a very large fan base. He gained the most followers out of all of the houseguests of the season. Zach was not only very popular with the fans, but he was also liked by numerous past Big Brother alumni. He was also in the Top 3 for America's Favorite Houseguest along with Donny and Nicole.
  • Adorkable: Zach is quirky, offbeat, intelligent and a math nerd. The fangirls also think that Zach is very loveable, adorable and super endearing, especially in his interactions with Frankie, Donny, Nicole and Victoria.
  • Affably Evil: Zach sometimes crosses between this and Faux Affably Evil, since there are plenty of moments in which Zach is genuine in his interactions with others.
  • Affectionate Nickname: "Rancey Pants". Julie Chen calls Zach by that name. It's even his Twitter and Instagram username, as he mentions in his speech on Week 9 live eviction show.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: Zach is consistently ostracized by the other houseguests. Even his own alliances talk bad about him behind his back and are always plotting to have him evicted. Basically, if something bad happens in the game or in the house, the easy thing to do is to #Blame Zach. Taken up several notches in Week 8 when Team America blamed Zach for hiding other people's belongings and accused Zach of being the Saboteur. The mob mentality with all of the houseguests ganging up on Zach and making him look bad is veering in bullying territory.
  • Always Second Best: Zach says that he believes that everyone else in the game is smarter than him and a better competitor than him.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Zach has a lot of Ho Yay with Frankie, Cody and Caleb. However, Zach stated that he isn't gay but if he was, Frankie would be his man. Zach's sexuality is a hot topic within the fandom, to the point where many fans want him to be in a romantic relationship with Frankie. Many fans often question whether Zach is really straight, bi curious, bisexual, gay, pansexual, "heteroflexible" or "Frankiesexual". Zach has also openly expressed how he finds both Cody and Caleb physically attractive. Zach also open told Jeff during his Big Brother Live Chat interview that Jeff was very good looking and that Jordan was lucky to have him.
  • Anti-Villain -> Anti-Hero: Ultimately, Zach is a Type III Anti-Hero with traces of Type I. He's only calling out other houseguests on their Jerkass behavior, but the way he's doing it is very extreme. He's not a complete Jerkass either. He's fairly noble.
  • Arch-Enemy: Victoria. Zach has hated Victoria since the beginning of the game.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Definitely shows shades of this at times. Zach can sometimes come off as too arrogant and cocky.
  • Ascended Fanboy: Might be the token male super fan of this season. According to his mom, Zach has been a fan of Big Brother since season one and has watched the show with her since the beginning. It was evident that Zach was a super fan of Big Brother when he was the only houseguest who knew who Dr. Will Kirby was and had watched season two of Big Brother. There are some fans who speculate that Zach actually downplays his super fan status. Zach has mentioned that his all time favourite Big Brother houseguests or players are Doctor Will Kirby, Mike Boogie and Dan Gheesling. Zach has also read Dan's book.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Zach openly admits he suffers from ADHD. He was diagnosed with it when he was 9 and he said that the diagnosis changed his life. Zach has said that his ADHD didn't affect his performance in school as he got A's and B's but that he did have a problem focusing or concentrating for long periods of time. Zach says that he does take medication for his ADHD but that he stopped taking it a couple of months ago because he struggled with some side effects of the medication. Zach also says that his ADHD medication also dramatically alters his personality.
  • Attention Whore: Averted. Zach could seem like he comes off as this but in reality, he says that he gets bored easily and that he needs constant entertainment to be content. He is definitely not as much of an attention whore as Caleb and Frankie and he doesn't seem to even want fame once his Big Brother experience is over.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: His last name Rance is really cool to pronounce cause it is easy to make rhymes out of it.
  • Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other:
    • His moments with Nicole and Victoria. With Nicole, he would often tease her about many things, especially about her "relationship" with Hayden. Nicole and Zach would often act like they don't like each other and they would bicker and argue with each other. Zach openly humiliated Nicole when he nominated her when in his nomination speech, he called Nicole "a Fruit Loop Dingus". And when Nicole nominated Zach, she called Zach out on not being a super villain, to which Zach had said that he was offended. Despite their on and off bickering, they had some very nice and tender moments where they show that they really like each other and they are sometimes affectionate with one another. Nicole openly said that outside of the game, she would love Zach and would be a fan of him. Zach said that he really likes Nicole and that he would date her outside of the game.
    • Zach's relationship with Victoria is very complex. Zach has repeatedly said how much he hates Victoria and even said to the cameras that while he is int he game, he has every intention of making her life in the house miserable. Zach constantly bad mouths Victoria to other houseguests and complains about how she is dumb, shallow and rude. Victoria says that Zach is loud, obnoxious and a jerk and that he doesn't treat girls with respect. However, Zach and Victoria actually have the most heartwarming and tender moments and interactions in the house. They often have deep and meaningful conversations about life, especially about the fact that they are both proud to be Jewish. Many fans think that Zach and Victoria have many things in common and that they have a very strong chemistry despite both Zach and Victoria trying to deny it.
  • Badass Adorable: Zach is highly loveable and adorable due to the fact that he is a silly dork who likes to have fun, make silly jokes and pull endless pranks. Yet at the same time, he is very gutsy and does not hesitate on calling out people. He has also shown that just because he is the silly and dorky prankster that he is, it doesn't mean that he can't be taken seriously and that he cannot be competitive when he wants to be.
  • Badass Boast: Zach has no problem with calling people out whenever he wants to. In fact, he has made many speeches calling people out whom he thinks are acting silly. He has called out and stood up to Devin and told him how much he sucks and how much he dislikes him. He also called Devin out on being a terrible ally and treating everyone in the house terribly. Zach has also called out Frankie and Christine, calling them the biggest liars in the house. If someone rubs Zach the wrong way in any form, Zach won't hesitate to call them out whenever he wants.
  • Badass Bookworm: Zach is intelligent, a math genius, is an Economics graduate and practically got all straight A's. He also admits that he reads a lot of books and goes to the library a lot. Zach also appears to be very knowledge about a variety of different subjects such as religion, politics, etc and he seems to be a very good speaker. Zach also admitted that if he were to chose a profession, he would want to be a lawyer.
  • Bash Brothers: With Cody, Derrick, Frankie, Caleb and Donny. With Cody, he had a very close friendship with him and bonded with him in the very beginning. However, as the game went on, Zach became more distant from Cody as many lies were being told to Cody about Zach by Frankie. This caused an extreme distrust between the two and the two drifted apart in the game. Zach was also close to Derrick and looked up to him. Derrick would often give Zach both game related advice and personal related advice. Zach even told Derrick that if he made Final 2, he would vote for him to win in the end (and he did). Zach's closest ally in the game used to be Frankie. They had a very close friendship and bond in the house and they had a Final 2 alliance in which they called themselves "Zankie". However, things took a sour turn for Zach and Frankie when Zach found out that Frankie betrayed him and threw him under thus along with Christine. After that, Zach and Frankie never trusted each other in the game again. Zach and Caleb became close as well and they bonded over fun times. Caleb has said that one of the houseguests he would miss the most if they left was Zach. And finally, Zach developed a very heartwarming friendship with Donny in the later weeks of the game. Zach has said that he really loves Donny as a person and that he felt really bad for Donny that he was so alone in the game. Zach and Donny bond over being left out and being the outsiders in the house and Donny and Zach had told each other that they will have each other's backs as much as possible. Although Zach had a relationship with all of the guys, in the end, the person whom Zach trusted the most was Donny.
  • Beauty Is Bad: Oh so much. Although, this is later averted as Zach's jerk behaviour is very much a facade and Zach is actually a really nice guy.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Victoria. Many fans notice their obvious chemistry in their interactions with each other.
  • Berserk Button: DO NOT betray Zach in any way, shape or form. He will become ruthless, never forgive and forget and will get revenge.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Zach appears to be a prankster, witty and humorous but he is actually rather dangerous and unpredictable in the game. This is because while Zach may not be the best strategic player in the game, he is very unpredictable and he has the potential to blow up people's games at any time. Also, he may be a jokester but Zach is a lot smarter than he seems.
  • Big Applesauce: Although Zach is currently living or residing in Florida, he's originally hails from New York.
  • Big Eater: Zach actually gained about fifteen pounds while he was in the house. He seemed to snack a lot. His favourite thing to make while he was in the house was M&M pancakes and also, he seems to love baking chocolate chip cookies. Everyday, Zach was in the kitchen baking chocolate chip cookies and he would be seen eating 20 cookies at a time! Frankie had even made comments that Zach had gained a lot of weight and used to be a lot thinner at the beginning of the season.
  • Big, Stupid Doodoo-Head: Zach gets a thrill out of calling other houseguests "Fruit Loop Dinguses". Let's not forget Zach calling Caleb a "lovestruck dingus fooligan" or a "Fruit Loop dingus busta fooligan".
  • Birds of a Feather:
    • With Victoria. Both are Jewish and from Florida. Although, just because Zach and Victoria share those few things in common, doesn't mean that they have been the best of friends throughout the game. In fact, despite having many similarities, Zach has repeatedly said that he dislikes Victoria and Victoria seems to dislike the way Zach picks other constantly.
    • With Cody. Both are frat boys who are athletic. They have similar backgrounds and they also speak very similar in the fact that their vocabulary consists of the F-Bomb, "dude" and "bro". In fact, Zach and Cody were very close friends very early on in the game because they had many things in common. Unfortunately, their friendship fell apart due to game reasons and many lies being spread about each other.
  • Bishōnen: Zach is one of the most attractive guys this season. While Devin, Cody, Caleb and Hayden are more of the Hunk type, Zach is more on the "pretty" and "delicate" side. Probably because Zach has more effeminate traits or qualities than Hayden, Caleb and Devin whom are all significantly more masculine than Zach.
  • Blood Knight: Unlike Frankie, who generally avoids getting blood on his hands if he can, Zach loves to get blood on his hands. Best seen when he put up Christine and Nicole together on the block and Frankie was attempting to go low-key with his nominations.
  • Born Lucky: Has been nominated twice and has managed to not be evicted without even campaigning to the house to stay. During his first time being nominated, Zach stood up to Devin, the HOH, and told him openly that he wanted Brittany to stay, which put a target on Zach's back. Zach then told Devin to nominate him if the POV was used. Zach was backdoored by his own alliance member, called Devin out in front of the entire house, blew up his own alliance (the Bomb Squad), and still managed to stay by a 10-2 vote. During his second time nominated, Zach lost HOH, was nominated, lost BOTB, and lost POV. Zach was public enemy #1 and was planning on being voted out by his own alliance (Derrick, Cody, Frankie, Christine, Caleb) yet Caleb managed to save Zach and convince everyone to keep Zach in the house. So even though Zach was the number one target both times he was nominated, he still ended up not going home. Zach was nominated a third time but won the POV and will save himself from the block. In week 8, Zach was prevented from being nominated by a Skittle draw. Zach definitely seems to have nine lives in this game.
  • Born Unlucky: Despite having quite a bit of luck in the game, Zach has also had the worst luck and the hardest road in the house. He has been thrown under the bus repeatedly by his allies, comes in second (just shy of winning) in almost all of the competitions, had his number one ally in the game (Frankie) not only backstab him but nominate him by backdooring him, and has repeatedly been chosen as the scapegoat for Team America tasks which only puts a bigger target on his back. Zach is also frequently targeted from week to week and is always public enemy number one. It doesn't help that although production seems to love Zach for entertainment purposes, they also hate him at the same time.
  • Breakout Character: There are many fans who consider Zach to be the "star" of Big Brother 16. Many fans flat out say that Zach is Big Brother 16. Zach's star status is not surprising considering that not only does Zach have a very large fan base but that he has the support of many Big Brother alumni, winners and greats such as Dr. Will Kirby, Janelle Pierzina, Rachel Reilly, Elissa Reilly, Andy Herren, Hayden Moss, Britney Haynes, Danielle Reyes, Jeff Schroeder, Evel Dick Donato, James Rhine, Kaysar Ridha, Daniele Donato, Dan Gheesling and Ian Terry (just to name a few). Survivor alumni Russell Hantz and Spencer Bledsoe are also fans of Zach. Even pop stars and celebrities LaToya Jackson and Ariana Grande are Team Zach. Zach was in the top three for America's Favorite Houseguest at the end of the season, solidifying the fact that Zach was one of this season's fan favorites and most popular houseguests.
  • Break the Cutie: See The Chew Toy, Born Unlucky and Butt-Monkey. Zach had been endlessly targeted since the beginning and every single houseguests whom Zach thought of as an ally had thrown him under the bus and wanted him to be evicted. The week when Zach was the main target for eviction was the most brutal for both Zach and the viewers as the mob mentality behaviour against Zach in the house veered in bullying territory.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Zach is actually very smart but many of the houseguets think he is lazy and just sleeps all day.
  • Brutal Honesty: Zach is very frank, blunt and sarcastic. Perhaps a little too much, because he outright gave away his vote before casting it and Julie scolded him for it.
  • Buffy Speak: Fruit Loop Dingus or Busta Fooligan, anyone?
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Zach is eccentric and quirky, but many people in the house are very intimidated by him because he is a huge mental threat in the game and he also has the potential to expose people's lies and blow up people's games.
  • Butt-Monkey: Zach always seems to be chosen for Team America tasks, which only makes the target on his back even bigger. He is also constantly trash talked by his own allies behind his back. He is also endlessly targeted from week to week and is always public enemy #1.
  • Camp Straight: Zach is straight but he displays some effeminate qualities. He seems to have no problem cuddling with men, wearing pink and showing emotion.
  • Cannot Keep a Secret: Comes with being a Motor Mouth.
  • Can't Evict You, Still Need You: While Zach has several trips onto the eviction block for being annoying, he gets saved a few times because Derrick sees him as a useful number. Unfortunately, when Zach shows Derrick that he's an uncontrollable troublemaker, Derrick doesn't have to do much to convince his own allies to finally toss him out.
  • Can't Take Zings: Was more than alright with zinging everyone else, including calling Nicole a "Fruit Loop Dingus" and calling Christine a floater. When Kathy Griffin comes in and zings him, his response is to sit down and cover his head and talk about how much that hurt.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Comes out and flat out admits he might try and be the villain. Averted. Turns out that Zach is not even close to being a super villain but instead, may be more of an Anti-Hero.
  • Catchphrase: "Don't get me turnt up!", "Zach Attack!" and "Fruit Loop Dingus".
  • Chaotic Stupid: Zach does silly and irrational things or acts in a crazy, unpredictable manner just for the fun of it. Even though he knows deep down that he shouldn't resort to conducting out of control behavior and his wild antics, he still ends up doing it anyways. Some of his other allies are always confused about why he keeps acting silly just to cause unnecessary chaos.
  • The Charmer: Zach is very likeable, charming, charismatic, witty and entertaining.
  • The Chessmaster: Likes to manipulate the other houseguests by using them and getting them to turn on each other for his own amusement and in order to create chaos. For example, Zach managed to manipulate both Caleb and Amber and turn them against each other. Zach managed to get Caleb to dislike Amber enough so that he wouldn't care if she were to be nominated. Zach's plan of manipulating Caleb into disliking Amber and turning against her managed to work as Amber was successfully backdoored by Frankie with Caleb's encouragement. Because Zach distrusted Christine, Zach manipulated both Derrick and Cody into distrusting Christine and also got them to see that Hayden was a huge threat. Zach successfully turned the entire house against Frankie & Christine, getting everyone to hate them and to target them. Zach also manipulated Christine, who hates him to begin with, into nominating and backdooring her once closest ally in the game, Nicole and also got Nicole to be target for eviction all because he wanted to keep Donny in the game.
  • The Chew Toy: See Butt-Monkey.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Aside from the people who he is loyal to, Zach has zero problem with throwing everyone under the bus. He even openly admitted that he will gladly blow up people's games and backstab others in order to further himself in the game.
  • Class Clown: Zach is known to be the funny and humorous guy of the season.
  • Clothes Make the Legend: His signature Florida Gators shirt and his pink cap.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Zach says the F word a lot.
  • Complexity Addiction: Nothing Zach plans, says or does is ever simple and is always completely complicated.
  • Conflicting Loyalty: Zach had a hard time choosing between Derrick & Cody and Frankie & Christine in regards to his allegiance. He ended up choosing the former and turning on the latter.
  • Confusion Fu: What made Zach stand out in the game was the fact that he was highly unpredictable and unreadable. It also made him incredibly intimidating to the other houseguests.
  • Cool Loser: Definitely has shades of this. Zach is very likeable, charming and funny, yet he was consistently ostracized by the other houseguests and many of the houseguests constantly threw him under the bus and talked bad about him. Zach himself even admitted that he is a bit on the anti social side and that he doesn't have that many friends in real life.
  • Cool Shades: Zach wears sunglasses from time to time.
  • The Corruptible: Zach is very easily manipulated and easily corrupted, particularly by Frankie and Derrick.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Zach can be downright out there, spastic, unpredictable and wacky. Many of the houseguests do not take Zach seriously whatsoever. See The Klutz, Cute Clumsy Guy, and Keet.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Zach can come of zany and spastic and most of the house thinks he's nuts, but he actually has rather good instincts and is rather strategic when he wants to be.
  • Crutch Character: Zach was seen as a liability to his entire alliance and they felt that he would cause problems within the alliance.
  • The Cuckoolander Was Right: Zach may be out there and zany, but he is actually one of the most logical houseguests in regards to the game and has very good instincts.
  • Cute Bruiser: Zach is very adorable and loveable but he is also very competitive by nature.
  • Cute Clumsy Guy: Zach is very spastic and hyper by nature, which raises his probability for clumsiness.
  • The Cutie: Have you seen Zach's interactions with Frankie, Victoria and Donny? Adorable. Especially for someone who is "trying" to get everyone to hate him.
  • Deadpan Snarker: By far the most witty, sarcastic and humorous houseguest of the season.
  • Depending On The Viewer: To some viewers, Zach was seen as an overly aggressive, misogynistic, mean spirited, and cody person who displayed intimidating and bullying behaviour and to other viewers, Zach was seen as a silly, fun loving, loveable, entertaining, dorky character who just wanted to entertain the audience and who was the jokester and the Plucky Comic Relief of the season.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: When Zach gave his "The Reason You Suck" Speech at the veto ceremony after Devin nominated him.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: When Zach voted out Devin and nominated Christine when he was HOH.
  • Didn't We Use This Joke Already?: Many fans think that Zach constantly using his Catchphrase of calling others "Fruit Loop Dingus" can be overused at times.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Christine was totally untouchable and was sitting pretty until Zach won HOH and nominated her after telling her to take one for the alliance.
  • The Dragon: Was this for Derrick. He was close allies with Derrick in the game as he was part of The Detonators alliance.
    • Co-Dragons: With Frankie, Christine, Cody and Victoria for Derrick. Even though Zach was aligned with Frankie, Zach had shown that he seemed to have more loyalty to Derrick and became closer to Derrick in the game after Zach discovered that Frankie had threw him under the bus.
    • Devour the Dragon: Frankie nominated Zach because of Derrick's influence and Derrick voted Zach out and Zach was evicted.
    • Villainous Friendship: Zach was allies and friends with Derrick. In fact, although Frankie was Zach's closest ally in the game, Zach had a stronger friendship and bond with Derrick later on after Zach found out that Frankie betrayed him.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: In-Universe, Zach whooped it up when Kathy Griffin zinged the other houseguests,note  but when the tables were turned on him, Zach gave a stone-faced expression when this was zinged at him (complete with a "Zing, Motherf***" by Kathy right to his face afterward; in fairness, Zach admits in his diary room entry that he wasn't prepared to be zinged by a comic the likes of Kathy Griffin):
    Kathy Griffin to Zach: "What do you call someone who's not afraid to cry, wears pink and cuddles with men? You call them Zach."
  • Entitled Bastard: Comes off as this at times.
  • Et Tu, Frankie and Christine?: Zach did NOT take it well when he found out that Frankie and Christine lied to him and threw him under the bus. As a result, Zach has turned his back on The Detonators, including Frankie and Christine.
  • Even Jerkasses Have Loved Ones: Zach has a very heart-warming relationship with his younger brother, loves his dog Tiger and cares about a select few people in the house, primarily Frankie, Cody, Derrick, Donny and Victoria.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: Frankie is clearly attracted to him and even admitted that "he was falling in love with him". Even past LGBT Big Brother houseguests such as Andy Herren (Big Brother 15), Ragan Fox (Big Brother 12), Marcellas Reynolds (Big Brother 3 and 7), Lawon Exum (Big Brother 13), Wil Heuser (Big Brother 14) and Will Wikle (Big Brother 5) all think Zach is attractive and endearing. He also seems to be highly popular with gay men.
  • Everyone Can See It: His relationship with Frankie. Everyone comments that they believe Zach and Frankie are in love with each other.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Zach seemed to be very accepting of the fact that he was a target and that he was going home when he was on the block.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: Zach looks cute and is pleasant to look at, but don't be fooled by his cute face.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Can be completely polite to your face but will throw you under the bus hardcore without any regrets behind your back.
  • Faux Yay: Although Zach had a lot of Ho Yay moments throughout with game with Frankie, Zach had said in one of his interviews that his flirting and cuddling with Frankie was all strategy in the game. He did still say that Frankie was his friend.
  • Fighting Clown: Zach is known to be a highly humorous and silly character but is also highly competitive. He is known as the jokester of the season.
  • The Fool/Fearless Fool: Zach is a Cloudcuckoolander and a Motor Mouth still being in the game might have to do with a little bit of luck considering how much he blows up his game and other people's games.
  • For the Funnyz: There is never a time when Zach doesn't want to tell jokes and play pranks.
  • Friendless Background: Openly admits that he only has a few friends he is really close with but that his best friend is his younger brother Peyton.
  • Fun Personified: Zach tried to come off as a villain but he is actually a loveable dork who is very funny.
  • The Gadfly: Zach LOVES causing trouble in the house. He is the ultimate loose cannon and a enjoy getting his hands dirty. It is so bad that Frankie makes several Diary Room statements fearing that it is going to ruin his game to keep Zach around until he finally gives up on him and turns against him. When Derrick takes note that Zach is a shit-stirrer and gets him to admit out in the open that he told a lie, it convinces Derrick and the other Detonators to send him packing.
  • Gay Bravado: See Have I Mentioned I Am Heterosexual Today?? Zach has made homoerotic comments regarding Frankie and his relationship with him. Zach even said to Cody that he wanted to sleep with Frankie. Whether that was true or a joke on Zach's behalf is unknown.
  • Gay Moment: Has plenty of these with Frankie. Yet, Zach frequently reaffirms that he is straight.
  • Genius Ditz/Ditzy Genius: Zach comes off as a wildcard and zany but he actually has good logic, understands the game rather well, has good instincts, has a quick sharp memory and is rather strategic when he wants to be.
  • Genius Bruiser: Zach plays many sports and is easily one of the most intelligent houseguests this season.
  • Genki Boy/Keet: Zach is very hyper, eccentric, spastic and upbeat...when he is not sleeping, that is.
  • Good All Along: Said during the start of the season that he straight up wanted to be the villain of the season but it turns out that ultimately, Zach was one of the good guys.
  • Good Counterpart: Ultimately could be seen as this to Frankie.
  • Good with Numbers: Zach is very intelligent and is excellent at math. He can calculate math on the spot with ease.
  • Graceful Loser: Despite being betrayed and backstabbed by his best friend (Frankie) and being ostracized by the rest of the houseguests, Zach took his eviction very well.
  • Hates Everyone Equally: At least he tries to say that he hates everyone. But so far, he seems to be failing to live up to what he says.
  • The Heart: Arguably shares this role with Donny. Zach was very likeable and popular with the viewing audience. Many fans felt that once Zach left the game, the show became less exciting and became more boring.
  • Have I Mentioned I Am Heterosexual Today?: Consistently says that he is straight and that he is not gay, but if he were gay, he would be with Frankie. All of the times that Zach mentions that he is straight could easily become another one of his catch phrases.
  • Heavy Sleeper/Sleepyhead: Zach is known for sleeping many hours in the house. Many feed watchers often criticize Zach for sleeping so much and always wait for Zach to wake up so that he could possibly entertain the live feed watchers.
  • Heroic BSoD: He had a really hard time coming to terms that he had lost in the comic book Veto competition. Has another major one when he finds out his number one ally in the game, Frankie, stabbed him in the back.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Cody. Although this was later on subverted as Cody turned on Zach and wanted him out of the house.
  • Hidden Depths: He is actually a really nice guy as shown with his interactions with Frankie, Victoria and Donny. Hayden, Nicole, Donny, Derrick, Victoria and Frankie all admit that Zach is a ultimately a good person but that he tries to play up the villain facade.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Zach may come off as a jerk, but it is very clear that has a good heart. Many houseguests have frequently mentioned that Zach's jerk or villain act is a facade.
  • Hollywood Nerd: Zach is on the nerdy side but he is very attractive.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: While Zach is quite smart and generally has good instincts regarding the game, his downfall in the game seems to be trusting the wrong people, including his own alliance (Frankie, Cody, Derrick and Christine). Zach has been seen to be very loyal to his alliance however, he has zero idea that his own alliance has been targeting him and throwing him under the bus for weeks and are even planning on voting him out and blindsiding him.
  • Hot-Blooded: Zach is very hot headed, impulsive, brash and a little on the cocky side.
  • Iconic Item: His blue Florida Gators shirt in which he wears every live eviction. Well, every one except Week 9, when he was evicted. He did not react well when he found out it was hidden in the trash bin (along with clothing items from the other houseguests) during the Week 9 Team America challenge carried out by Derrick, Donny and Frankie.
  • If It's You, It's Okay: Zach has mentioned that he is definitely straight but that he sees Frankie as his boyfriend and doesn't mind others labelling them as a "showmance".
  • Innocently Insensitive: Zach is a naturally sarcastic person and he warns others that everything that he says should not be taken so seriously.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Donny.
  • In-Series Nickname: "ZACH ATTACK" and "Hurricane Zach".
  • Irrational Hatred: For some reason, Zach really, really dislikes or hates Victoria. He has repeatedly said that he doesn't like her and her personality and he has constantly clashed with her in the game.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Whenever he's calling out people on their hypocrisy (particularly Devin, Caleb, Frankie and Christine), he's 100% correct. Astonishingly so.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Zach openly admits he's a jerk, owns it and is even proud of it. However, Zach has moments where he is actually very nice to other houseguests. His interactions with Frankie, Donny, Victoria, Derrick and Cody show that he is actually a good-hearted person deep down despite his villain or jerk facade. Zach tries to come off as a jerk but there have been moments where we see moments of tenderness from him, such as Zach crying over missing his brother and feeling compassion and crying for Frankie when Frankie's grandfather died. Both Nicole and Victoria have managed to see right through Zach's facade, saying that underneath the walls that he puts up, he is a good, sweet person. Nicole even told Zach that she didn't really see him as a super villain and that he was too cute and innocent.
  • Jewish and Nerdy: Averted. Zach is a bit of nerd as he is smart, offbeat and quirky.
  • Kick the Dog: His goodbye message to Paola was extremely rude. He was equally mean to Devin and Brittany but they weren't exactly the nicest people to him and in the latter's case, Zach still had some positive things to say about Brittany despite the fact that Brittany threw him under the bus repeatedly. Also the aftermath of Hayden's eviction, he teases Nicole however, he does manage to be cordial and friendly with her afterwards.
  • The Klutz: Zach can be really brilliant and smart when he wants to be but he always seems to make a mistake by either blowing up his game or blowing up someone else's game.
  • Knight Templar: Zach can be absolutely ruthless and has no problem with throwing people under the bus, calling people out and blowing up alliances and people's games.

  • Loveable Rogue: He's not called Zach Attack or Hurricane Zach for no reason.
  • Manchild: Zach definitely comes off as very immature and childish at times.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Zach loves mind screwing with people in order to create chaos and drama. If he manages to make it to the end of the game, he might cross over into Magnificent Bastard territory.
  • Motor Mouth: Zach definitely talks way too much at times. He even openly admitted during his post-eviction interview in Week 9 that this was responsible for costing him the game.
  • Morality Chain/Morality Pet: Victoria, Frankie, Donny, and his little brother, Peyton.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Zach is super popular with the Big Brother female fans.
  • Nerd/Nerds Are Sexy: See Jewish and Nerdy.
  • Nice Hat: Zach is known for his infamous pink cap, which he actually borrowed from Victoria on Week 1 and never gave back. Victoria saw fit to destroy and hide it after he left it in the kitchen to get Zach's goat in Week 9, and taunted him with it in her goodbye video to Zach when he was evicted. When Zach got to the Jury House, his fellow jurors gifted him with a brand new pink hat of his very own. Zach's reason for always wearing his hat is simple. Underneath his hat is a very bristly hairdo that he's a little embarrassed at showing off, and Zach complains nobody in the house gives a decent haircut.
  • Nice Jewish Boy: He has his moments.
  • The Nicknamer: Zach has nicknames for many of the houseguests.
  • Noble Demon: Zach admits that he knows when he crosses the line.
  • No Indoor Voice: Zach can give Dan Gheesling a run for his money with how loud he is in the diary room.

  • Odd Couple/Odd Friendship: With Frankie. He's straight and Frankie is a flaming homosexual.
  • Only in Florida: Zach originally hails from Florida.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Zach Attack or Hurricane Zach.
  • Only Sane Man: Although Zach is zany and out there, Zach is often the one who makes the most sense in terms of strategic moves in the game. For example, while his entire alliance (The Detonators) were against getting Caleb out, Zach (along with Donny) was the only one strongly advocating for Caleb to be nominated to benefit Cody's game in the long term. Turns out that Cody chickened out and nominated Donny, someone who had a good relationship with Cody to begin with, instead of one of the biggest threats in the house (Caleb).
  • Open Mouth, Insert Foot: Zach sometimes talks when he shouldn't talk and says things when he shouldn't be saying them.
  • Opportunistic Bastard: Zach goes back and forth between this and The Chessmaster.
  • Opposites Attract: With Frankie.
  • Pet the Dog: His moments with Victoria are genuinely heartwarming. While he does make it clear that he's using her, he's still the only one who cares about protecting her.
  • Plucky Comic Relief/The Funny Guy: Zach is very witty and is one of the funniest houseguests.
  • The Pollyanna: Zach seems to be very optimistic and upbeat by nature.
  • The Prankster: Zach loves to conduct pranks on other houseguests for his own amusement.
  • Reality Show Genre Blindness: Acting like an Entitled Bastard is a great way to get yourself either evicted early or no votes at the end.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Zach wears a signature pink cap.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Has given one to Devin of all people.
  • Refuge in Audacity: He is being interviewed by Rachel Reilly. He literally says he doesn't like her and calls her out on bullying to her face.
  • Sacrificial Lion: For The Detonators. All of Zach's allies, including Frankie, Derrick, Christine and Cody, all wanted Zach out of the house.
  • Ship Tease: With Frankie, Nicole and Victoria.
  • The Smart Guy: Zach graduated with a degree in Economics from the University of Florida. Plus, he has shown that he's mentally quick, can do math on the spot, and can recall a variety of things rather easily. He can also be rather strategic and has pretty good instincts.
  • The Snark Knight: Could easily be the Trope Codifier.
  • Sore Loser: Totally subverted and Played for Laughs, but you could tell he was a mite annoyed when he knew everybody in the house was gonna bump him out. When it was his time to leave the house and he knew it, Zach dumped on everybody and then got up before Julie confirmed he was evicted, grabbed a bag of Fruit Loops, and began pelting everybody with them (though Frankie enjoyed playing along with the bit and even opened his mouth). Otherwise, Zach gleefully walked out the door and received a big set of cheers all around.
  • Spiky Hair: His signature hairstyle.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Aside from getting the most screen time along with Frankie, Zach is also the houseguest that gets asked the most questions by Julie Chen every live eviction. Some of the houseguests have taken notice of Julie Chen's favouritism of Zach and have even admitted to being jealous of Zach because of it, such as Frankie and Cody.
  • Stupid Sexy Flanders: Zach has said that he isn't gay but that he feels that Frankie is his boyfriend due to the genuine bond that he shares with him.
  • Take That!: Says Nick Uhas (from Big Brother 15) sucks in his interview.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: Zach is very physically appealing.
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky: He is very sarcastic and snarky.
  • Those Two Guys: With Cody. They even called their alliance "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody".
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Zach loves M&M's pancakes and chocolate chip cookies.
  • Troperiffic: Do you see how many tropes he has compared to everyone else? Its enough for an entire page.
  • Tsundere: Type A.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Frankie. Though lately, he has started to branch out a bit.
  • Unluckily Lucky: See Born Lucky and Born Unlucky for the full detail.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Nicole and Victoria.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Zach is almost always shirtless 90% of the time, along with Hayden and Cody. Nobody is complaining, seriously.

Jocasta Brittain Odom (Juror #01)

Born: Aug 10th, 1980
Age: 33
Hometown: Griffin, GA
Current Residence: Lovejoy, GA
Occupation: Minister
Number Of HOH's Won: None
Number Of POV's Won: None
Number Of Battle Of The Block's Won: 1
Number Of Times Nominated: 4
Number Of Eviction Votes (Against): 6
Number Of Times As a Have-Not:None
Prizes/Punishments Taken: None
Finished: 11th Place (EVICTED 6-2), JUROR #1
Jury Vote: VOTED FOR CODY

  • Action Mom: Subverted. Jocasta is one of the most useless competitors and players in the game. The fact that she only won a competition, which was a Battle of the Block, because of Amber qualifies Jocasta was the worst female competitor and overall, the worst competitor of the entire season. And not only is Jocasta physically weak but she was also socially and strategically weak.
  • Adorkable: Her signature bow ties make her rather endearing. She is never not seen wearing one; she even chooses to wear bow ties with formal clothing. Jocasta is also incredibly offbeat, quirky sand downright zany.
  • All-Loving Hero: Saw herself as this. She always tried to see the good in everyone and everything. Maybe it is because she is a minster for a living, maybe it is because she depended on God and her faith, maybe it was because she was aligned with and best friends with Donny,m who was the most moral person in the entire house. Unfortunately for Jocasta, she didn't display such kindness towards Derrick when she was casting her vote for the winner of the season.
  • Badass Preacher: Subverted. Jocasta was very useless and sucked at competitions. In fact, without the help of Amber,m she would;t have won a single competition during the season. However, despite the fact that competitively and physically, she is useless, Jocasta is very spunky, sassy and feisty and she says exactly what is on her mind. Jocasta is really no pushover.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Jocasta comes off as generally nice but she is very sassy and not to be messed with. She seemed to show much bitterness towards Derrick, claiming that he was "fake praying" with her during the game. She managed to say that she would be bitter over it and that it would cost Derrick her jury vote. Do not mess with Jocasta and take her faith for granted.
  • Bi the Way: Used to be bisexual before she got married. She had said that a combination of God and counselling helped to cure her of her bisexuality.
  • Black Best Friend: To Donny and Paola. Jocasta did not have that many friends and allies in the game but she was the closest with Donny and Paola.
  • Black Woman Gets Evicted First: Although Paola, Amber and Devin, all the minorities of the season, had already been evicted earlier, Jocasta ends up being the last minority left in the house. Jocasta is evicted by a 6-0 vote and she is the first member of the jury this season.
  • Brutal Honesty: Jocasta is very sassy, feisty and honest. She is highly opinionated and speaks exactly what is on her mind. She did not hesitate to tell Derrick while she was voting for the winner that she did not appreciate him "fake praying" (whatever the Hell that means).
  • Butt-Monkey: Jocasta had been nominated almost every week and was used as a constant pawn on the block. Not to mention that she was not a good competitor. She also repeatedly falls ill every single week and had endless issues with her health such as bowel problems, heat exhaustion, muscle injuries, etc. Amongst the audience, Jocasta is also repeatedly looked at as a joke and many question why the hell she was even cast on the season in the first place as many believe that she really served zero purpose.
  • Chirping Crickets: Used in the confessional during the Battle of the Block competition with Victoria.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Jocasta is very wacky, zany, bizarre, and out there. A lot of her actions and mannerisms are completely out there. This is a woman who makes bizarre facial expressions out of no where, cries at the most unnecessary time, and starts speaking in tongues when she is emotionally overwhelmed to the point where she seems like she is possessed. Jocasta is a very, very strange lady.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Jocasta was very funny and witty, especially in her Diary Room sessions.
  • Death Glare: Gave one to Derrick after she rolled her eyes upon finding out he had nominated her.
  • Deep South: Jocasta originally hails from Georgia.
  • Egocentrically Religious: Jocasta depended on religion, God and her faith in the game.
  • The Fundamentalist: Intends to avert this trope in the game.
  • Genki Girl: Very enthusiastic and high spirited.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Jocasta can be nice but she is also incredibly sarcastic and sassy.
  • Good Shepherd: Likes to think of herself as this, especially due to the fact that she is a minister for a living and strongly believes in her faith.
  • Graceful Loser: If God intended for her not to win, Jocasta can deal with that.
  • Happily Married: Is one of the three houseguests who are married this season along with Derrick and Christine.
  • Hiding Behind Religion: She used God and her faith as a shield in the game. She even voted for the winner of the season based on religion.
  • Hidden Depths: Mentions having to go to counselling at one point in her life. Also, Jocasta admitted to being a former bisexual.
  • Holier Than Thou: She has this in spades.
  • Ill Woman: She came down with an illness (possibly, heat-induced) before the third POV competition.
  • In-Series Nickname: "Mama J".
  • Joke Character: Jocasta can never be taken seriously and she is seen as a joke by many of the viewers. Many question why she was even cast on the season to begin with.
  • The Klutz: Jocasta is definitely not the most graceful in her movements.
  • Large Ham: Jocasta's actions and mannerisms are very over the top.
  • The Load: Completely useless in competitions.
  • Motor Mouth: Only when Jocasta starts speaking in tongues.
  • Nice Lady: One of the nicer female houseguests of the season.
  • Non Action Woman: Jocasta is not a strong competitor whatsoever.
  • Out of Focus: There wasn't much focus on Jocasta during the shows.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Donny.
  • Plucky Girl: She is very optimistic, positive and happy go lucky.
  • The Pollyanna: Jocasta is very enthusiastic and positive.
  • Preacher Woman: Jocasta is a minster for a living.
  • Real Women Love Jesus: Well, Jocasta is a minister for a living and she is strongly religious.
  • Sassy Black Woman: Has shades of this like during a confessional about the fifth Battle of the Block.
  • Suddenly Bilingual: Turns out that aside from English, Jocasta can also speak in tongues.
  • Sweet Home Alabama: Jocasta is originally from Georgia.
  • Team Mom: She and Brittany were the two mothers of the season.
  • Tears of Joy: When Donny saves her with the Power of Veto and comforts her to get better while she's recovering from being sick, uttering a happy praise.
  • Token Minority: One of two black women cast this season.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Everything that Jocasta did (or did not do) in the game was either stupid or irrelevant. Even the fact that she voted for the winner of the season based on religion and her faith. Jocasta voting the way she did made her come off as bitter.
  • True Companions: With Donny and Paola.
  • Worf Had the Flu: A very genuine case of Real Life Writes the Plot. In week 3, Jocasta got a stomach bug. She went on the block as a pawn at the worst possible time. During the Battle of the Block Competition, it was too hot and she didn't have anything to drink and was suspended mid-air in a harness, which only helped make her feel worse, and lost the challenge. She complained she was about to throw up after the competition ended, and needed a little help from Donny to steady herself. Caleb had to help her back into the house, and Caleb helped rush Joscasta to the toilet, where she finally puked up. Donny suggested they could put a new liner on a trash can and have it by her bedside, and in her accompanying Diary Room session, she looks like and sounds like hell. She took ill, remaining bedridden and too sick to compete for the veto, so Derrick nominated someone on her behalf to compete (not on the block- as a stand-in) and Donny took her place. Fortunately, the plan to backdoor Devin fell into place when Donny won.
