Previous Season Appearance: Big Brother 14 (Finished 7th)
Finished: 12th Place
Evicted: 9-0 VS. BRIDGETTE
HOH/POV Evicted Under: JAMES (HOH), MICHELLE (POV)

  • Action Survivor: Frank was less competitive this season than on his original season (Big Brother 14). Sure, he won a couple of Roadkill Competitions, but he was no where near his competitive level on his original season. Frank didn't even manage to win one HOH or POV and he ended up being evicted really early on (before Jury).
  • Badass Family: Frank's father is famed WWF wrestler Sidney "Sid Vicious" Eudy.
  • Big Bad: A de facto one, as the unofficial leader of the 8-Pack and a constant schemer that both constantly plotted against everyone, whom in turn everyone seemed to be plotting against from the beginning.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Frank is very loud, brash, cocky and opinionated. Some of the other houseguests (such as Da'Vonne, Zakiyah, Tiffany, etc) found his brash personality to be intolerable.
  • Cannot Keep a Secret: Frank reveals to Bridgette that he won the Week 3 Roadkill Competition, essentially outing himself as the one who nominated Bronte as the third potential evictee. This ultimately placed a target on his back from Bridgette, considering her close friendship with Bronte and her frustration that Bronte was put up for eviction.
  • The Chessmaster: Frank sure manages to get what he wants in the house, every which way he can.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Is constantly making contradictory side-deals and betraying his original allies.
  • Control Freak: Frank's dominating behavior this time around was exemplified when he practically stewarded Bridgette's nomination decisions when she was the Week 3 Head of Household, only to backstab her by nominating Bronte for eviction that same week after winning the Roadkill Competition.
  • Deep South: Frank is originally from Marion, Arkansas. Marion is a city located in Crittenden County, Arkansas. Frank currently lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, which is the largest city in the state of North Carolina. Charlotte is also the second largest city in the southeastern United States behind Jacksonville, Florida. Frank is also a Good Ol' Boy who is Southern to the bone.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: It was originally thought that Frank would be the Big Bad or the major villain of the season, but before he could invoke anymore damage and control the house, he was evicted before Jury started with a 8-0 vote.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Bridgette, her Good Counterpart. Frank essentially used Bridgette's status as HOH in Week 3, as a move to try to get Bronte (Bridgette's alliancemate in the Spy Girls) out of the house.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: In his original season debut, Frank had a massive shock of curly hair like that of a partygoer. Now he's a bit Older and Wiser and has mellowed and matured somewhat, but not a whole lot. He still manages to repeat some of his old mistakes and is quickly embroiled in fights with other houseguests just like the big blowup he had with Willie Hantz early on in Season 14, which is why he lost even earlier than before because this season had a lot more uncompromising contestants who got mad at him for being selfish.
  • Irony: Each time Frank was evicted during the seasons he participated in the game, the Veto comps that were needed to take him off the block were Otev comps. The curse of Otev strikes again!
  • Jerkass: Even with the Took a Level in Kindness below, he is openly manipulating Bridgette and causing Ship Tease between the two of them so she will "trust" him and be an Unwitting Pawn. He also told Da'Vonne and James to not use their respective children as strategy to make it jury, with no proof that they ever planned to even do this.
  • Never My Fault: Whenever he's accused of something, he claims he wasn't the reason for it. For example, during his goodbye message for Bronte when she got evicted, he states he nothing to do with her going. Sure, Roadkill winner...
  • Not So Different: Claims he's turned over a new leaf since last time even when it's become apparent he's just as bad as he was last time. Also has similarities to Mike Boogie from Season 14 having a condescending and power hungry attitude, while also having a rivarly with a returning female houseguest.
  • The Rival: Becomes this to Da'Vonne very quickly.
  • Straw Misogynist:
    • As seen on the live feeds, Frank made sexually harassing and misogynistic comments toward Zakiyah and Da'Vonne, having told Zakiyah that "she was getting chubby," attempting to trip Da'Vonne multiple times, calling her a slut and telling her "shut your damn mouth woman" after she told him to move out the way when exiting the HOH room; slapping Da'Vonne on the butt (an act that Frank also did to Zakiyah), forcing Da'Vonne to tell him not to do that. This ultimately became a storyline in the Week 3 nomination episode, which featured a montage of Frank's jokes, which included the aforementioned "slut" comment toward Da'Vonne; saying that Nicole needed to shave her mustache; that Natalie needed to be a have-not and eat slop for a week, calling her a "fatty-boom-a-latty" (pinching the side of her stomach as well); and calling Zakiyah a "hussy" after telling her to pull down her shirt; along with several of the other aforementioned incidents.
    • The comments directed towards Da'Vonne in particular greatly upset her, who expressed concern about her daughter growing up to think such behavior is acceptable. Later in the same episode, before apologizing to Da'Vonne for the incidents, Frank mentions that pinching someone's butt is his way of showing he feels close to a person, and admits to doing it to his mom and grandmother (the former of whom he also reveals does it to him)!
  • The Man Behind the Man: As Da'Vonne said, he's basically the true HOH of Week 3 as he is influencing Bridgette to get what he wants.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Of the 8-Pack alliance. While some of the others have their moments, he is the most obviously flawed and outright villainous.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: He mellowed down from being the explosive Frank from Season 14 for sure. At least, he mellowed down before he got Drunk On Power. This is later subverted when he gets his power, starts sexually harassing other houseguests (especially Da'Vonne), and manipulates Bridgette into getting rid of one of her spy girl allies.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Frank's tendency not to wear a shirt in the house is lampshaded by Michelle in a DR entry following Category Four's assignment of their pixel punishment, stating that he and Paulie practically walk around the house nearly naked anyway.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: His attitude toward the 8-Pack after evicting Victor.

     Tiffany Alexis Rousso (Evicted HG #04) 

Tiffany Alexis Rousso (Evicted HG #04)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tiffany_5.png

Born: Apr 19th, 1984 (age at time of competition: 32)
Hometown: West Palm Beach, FL
Current City Of Residence: Palm Beach Gardens, FL
Occupation: High School Teacher
Number Of HOH Wins: 0
Number Of POV Wins: 0
Number Of Roadkill Wins: 1
Number Of Times Nominated: 3
Number Of Times As Have-Not: 1
Prizes/Punishments Won: $2,500
Team: Freakazoids (Nicole, Corey, Tiffany, Glenn)
Finished: 13th Place
Evicted: 8-0-0 VS. DA'VONNE and NATALIE
HOH/POV Evicted Under: PAULIE (HOH), COREY (POV)

  • 0% Approval Rating: Nearly everyone in the house couldn't stand Tiffany. They found her to be extremely annoying because she would have constant emotional breakdowns. She became an early target for the other houseguests because many feared that she was playing a near identical game to her older sister Vanessa. They also hated Tiffany's constant paranoia which she happened to spread around the house. Houseguests, such as Paulie, Paul, Frank, Da'Vonne, Nicole, and Michelle, found Tiffany intolerable because she would constantly get overly emotional and have a constant Freak Out!. Because of Tiffany's over the top emotional and crazy behavior, she became a target very early on in the game and she was an early boot. The only one who had any degree of compassion and empathy for Tiffany was Natalie and even she admitted that she got annoyed with Tiffany's behavior behind her back. Later on the live feeds, in an assessment of who would be easiest to live with, Paul rated everyone. When he got to Tiffany, he started with "Dear God" and from there it just got worse as he talked about her outbursts.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: Most of the people in the house have gotten sick of her or are actively conspiring against her. Case in point, when she enters a room, it's common to see most of the people that were already in there get up and leave to avoid talking to her.
  • Alpha Bitch: Tiffany has a very domineering, controlling and petty side of her personality that managed to rub many of the other houseguests the wrong way. Her constant freak outs, emotional outbursts and incessant paranoid behavior didn't do her any favors either. She was rather rude and aggressive to others when she didn't get her way and it's justified why the other houseguests didn't like her and wanted her out of the house so early.
  • Always Someone Better: Her sister is Vanessa Rousso, a Big Brother player who's credited as being one of the strongest and best players to never win. Tiffany probably felt a lot of pressure to live up to her older sisters reputation as a player. Unfortunately for Tiffany, that pressure to live up to her sisters expectations caused her to crumble and she ended up failing because she was a pre-jury boot. It's assumed that Tiffany may have been an early and easy target simply because she's Vanessa's sister and the other houseguests had an immediate fear that she would play just like her sister and get to the end like her sister.
  • Bi the Way: Has dated both men and women in the past. She acknowledges that this, along with her sociability, could be an advantage in the game, allowing her to flirt with houseguests of either gender to try and get ahead. Likewise, her sister Vanessa is bi.
  • Brainy Brunette: As mentioned in her intro package, Tiffany has an IQ of 145 and she's clearly a very smart girl. It seems that brains and intelligence run in the Rousso genes since her older sister Vanessa was also a very brainy and intelligent person who has been regarded as one of the best strategic players of Big Brother.
  • Break the Haughty: After almost getting evicted and losing a vital competition, only evading eviction because of the girls' (as well as James and Corey) plan shifting to try and sabotage Frank, she's visibly broken. This is a far cry from the seemingly arrogant and boastful Tiffany in the beginning.
  • Cool Teacher: Tiffany works as a high school teacher, and looking at her alone seems to show she exudes this trait.
  • Cute and Psycho: Tiffany can be very nice and endearing at times, but underneath that is someone who has a lot of emotional issues brewing. She's Hot-Blooded and has a Hair-Trigger Temper and she's easily set off when she's provoked into anger. When she gets paranoid, she ends up creating conspiracy theories about how everyone in the house is against her or coming after her. She has had a Freak Out!'s frequently and has had a few emotional breakdowns to the point where it seemed like she was having a Sanity Slippage. Going by Vanessa's behavior in the previous season (Big Brother 17), it's obvious that crazy runs in the Rousso genes.
  • Evil Teacher: GOOD WORD. She's intelligent, she teaches high schools... and snaps at the drop of a hat and makes the whole house shake with her temper tantrums...On second thought, she's too good for high schoolers... animals...
  • Expy: An even more chaotic version of her sister Vanessa Rousso, a career poker player. Both Vanessa and Tiffany are highly emotional people. The only difference between the two is that Tiffany is no where near the strategist or manipulator Vanessa is. Vanessa is chaotic and manipulative while Tiffany is just chaotic period.
  • Hysterical Woman: Very much like her older sister Vanessa, Tiffany was highly emotionally unstable. She would get emotional, cry or blow up at the smallest thing and she would dramatize everything. Tiffany's outbursts and emotional hysterics drove most of the house nuts to the point that people would often go out of their way to avoid being around Tiffany so that she wouldn't talk to them. Some of the houseguests such as Frank, Paul, and even Paulie have commented on Tiffany's mental and emotional instability. They have frequently called her crazy and said that in many ways, her personality and her behavior is identical to her older sister.
  • Jerkass: Acts very rude, irrational, and hateful to the other Houseguests for "playing the game" and tries to emotionally manipulate them constantly and when confronted about it accuses everyone of being bullies or planning against her.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Yes, Tiffany can be very catty, bitchy and overly emotional at times. But she's still ultimately a good person at heart. She does have a very aggressive and bitchy side to her personality and she also mistreats many of the houseguests. It seemed that Tiffany let her emotions and her paranoia dictate all of her actions in the game and it made her come across as unstable, but that didn't make her a bad person, just severely misguided. Let's just say that Tiffany is a much nicer person in comparison to Vanessa who was very much a mega Alpha Bitch.
  • Only in Florida: Tiffany hails from the Palm Beach area of South Florida.
  • Prone to Tears: Like her elder sister Vanessa, Tiffany is highly emotional and temperamental. She could easily lose her cool and start crying the water works. Tiffany is an extremely sensitive person and doesn't handle being rejected, neglected or abandoned by others.
  • Sanity Slippage: OH DEAR. Poor Tiffany had a complete emotional and mental meltdown during the week that she was nominated. She was completely paranoid that everyone was out to get her and that she was being targeted by everyone. Her lack of sanity and her mental instability caused the other houseguests to feel extremely uncomfortable around her. She had felt that Paulie as the HOH was trying to backdoor her because he didn't like her and that he wanted her out of the house. But she didn't even realize that it was actually Victor who had won the Roadkill Competition that was the one that nominated her, not Paulie. Paulie even lampshades Tiffany's Freak Out! during his DR saying that Tiffany is acting way to crazy and paranoid over the fact that she was put on the block. Due to Tiffany having an emotional breakdown and being excessively paranoid, the other houseguests comment that she really is no different than her older sister Vanessa.
  • Tall Poppy Syndrome: Especially after losing the initial three-part competition, Vanessa worries about being targeted solely because of her relation to Vanessa, which ironically results in her revealing the fact that Vanessa is her sister to Da'Vonne.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: Invoked by Michelle in the season premiere, who immediately figures out that Tiffany and her sister, Season 17 finalist Vanessa Rousso, might be related due to their fairly strong resemblance.
  • You Go, Girl!: During the Week 4 eviction night, Tiffany in her last-ditch effort speech, stated she wasn't planning to go after her fellow Houseguests... except Frank and Bridgette, referring to them as "the dictator and his little Cabbage Patch kid". The second of these remarks actually resulted in the inspiration for Bridgette's BB Comic cover.

     Bronte Anne D'Acquisto (Evicted HG #03) 

Bronte Anne D'Acquisto (Evicted HG #03)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bronte_2.png

Born: May or June 1990 (age at time of competition: 26)
Hometown: San Diego, CA
Current City Of Residence: Denver, CO
Occupation: Student
Number Of HOH Wins: 0
Number Of POV Wins: 0
Number Of Times Nominated: 2
Number Of Times As Have-Not: 0
Prizes/Punishments Won: Immunity 1st and 2nd Evictions
Team: Team Unicorn (James, Natalie, Bronte, Victor)
Finished: 14th Place
Evicted: 5-4-0 VS. TIFFANY and PAUL
HOH/POV Evicted Under: BRIDGETTE (HOH/POV)

  • Adorkable: Bronte is very "out there," if you will.
  • Alpha Bitch: A seemingly unlikely one, though she manages to avoid hitting Insufferable Genius territory because of her affability with some of her fellow houseguests. She has made insults (with some aimed at James that could be considered borderline racist) about other houseguests.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Bronte appears to be a nice and kinda nerdy girl, but has emerged at times as one of the cattiest female houseguests; this fact, though, isn't shown so much in the television episodes.
  • Brainy Brunette: Although she describes herself as a "stereotypical California girl," the fact that Bronte works as a tutor (for SAT, ACT and mathematics) makes her both the aforementioned trope and a subversion of how she describe. Affirmed in her BB profile, in which she states that she loves solving math problems "consisting of calculus, statistics and probability". Made somewhat awesome by the fact that during her revealation to Bridgette and Natalie that she is studying to be a mathematician, Bronte states that her dream is to use prime numbers (for reasons not specified) to help the National Security Administration fight computer hackers. Ironically though, she's more adept at solving math problems with a pen, paper and calculator than calculating them in her head, as evidenced by the fact that she's the first one eliminated from the Week 3 POV competition, which involved having to remember the order of certain ingredients that explode in the face of those who get the order incorrect.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Despite her mannerisms, she is shown in her intro package tutoring calculus to a group of students.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Bronte's meditation session in the Diary Room during the season premiere definitely gave shades of this.
  • Cute, but Cacophonic: Bronte has a very high-pitched voice, which she lampshades in her intro package makes her sound like a 5-year-old. Later in Part 1 of the season premiere, Paul even describes her voice as sounding "like she's been sucking helium balloons her entire life".
  • Deadpan Snarker: Bronte is very snarky and sarcastic and when she's irritated by something, she really brings out the sarcasm in extreme spades. She had Snark-to-Snark Combat with Paul often and they often came off Like an Old Married Couple who endlessly bickered with each other.
  • The Ditz: Subverted. Bronte comes across as someone who is a major airhead and has her head in the clouds, but she's actually The Smart Girl and a Brainy Brunette who is extremely intelligent and very good at math. Many people are fooled by Bronte's ditzy persona and think that she doesn't have any intelligence because of the way she speaks. Bronte is definitely Obfuscating Stupidity and many people mistake her as the dumb girl who's shallow and has no depth.
  • I Have Boobs, You Must Obey!: Bronte attempts to get information from James about the secret Natalie's been keeping from them regarding Frank's Roadkill win, doing so whilst changing her clothesnote  in front of James. Whether or not it was a conscious move on Bronte's part, the plan didn't work either way, as James didn't spill the beans.
  • Irony: One of the token geeky girls ends up being one of the most catty.
    • Also, the week before, given the occupation she owned, Bronte was considered to have the Roadkill challenge that involved math in the bag. Instead, Victor, whose job makes him look like a brawn instead of a brain, won instead.
  • Jerkass: Regularly seen on the live feeds insulting the houseguests behind their back with Paul in the first week. After getting mad at James, she even said, in slightly different variations, that she was going to ‘kick James’ little Asian ass back to Hong Kong or wherever he's from'.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: As Glenn did, Bronte lied about her profession to help herself in the game, claiming to work in childcare while in the house. In actuality, she's an aspiring doctoral student in mathematics; a pretty understandable lie considering that could be used against her.
  • Pet the Dog: While she has made a few off-color comments about James and a few other houseguests, she has formed a genuine connection with Bridgette and Natalie and revealed her secret to them before she was evicted.

     Jossie "Jozea" Flores (Evicted HG #02) 

Jossie "Jozea" Flores (Evicted HG #02)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jozea_6.png

Born: Feb 26th, 1991 (age at time of competition: 25)
Hometown: Bridgeton, NJ
Current City Of Residence: Los Angeles, CA
Occupation: Makeup Artist
Number Of HOH Wins: 0
Number Of POV Wins: 0
Number Of Times Nominated: 1
Number Of Times As Have-Not: 1
Prizes/Punishments Taken: None
Team: Big Sister (Da'Vonne, Paul, Zakiyah, Jozea)
Finished: 15th Place
Evicted: 7-4-0 VS. PAULIE and BRIDGETTE
HOH/POV Evicted Under: NICOLE (HOH), PAUL (POV)

  • 0% Approval Rating: Jozea was heavily disliked by the fans because of his cockiness and controversial comments regarding the 4th of July. He was also in the bottom 5 for Joker's Ratings for almost every day on the poll. Even an anti-bullying charity called Bullies Reailty (which his fellow houseguest James (and later on Natalie and Victor) are part of) did not like Jozea. He even lost a chance to go back into the Big Brother Over The Top house losing to fan favorite Jason Roy.
  • A God Am I: He calls himself a "messiah of the newbies", which displeased Da'Vonne, both because of its blasphemy to a certain higher power and the cockiness of the statement.
  • Alpha Bitch: Definitely one of the cattiest people in the house. Several of Jozea's Diary Room entries feature him expressing disdain about the other houseguests (especially the returning ones), and in one case, even telling Julie Chen one entry to "hit the road," which also happens to be the name of the second competition that decides which team would be forced to choose which of their teammates gets evicted.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: He viewed himself as a messiah, but him getting evicted second goes to show how it was too good to be true. He was trying to pass himself off as a serious threat, but he was nothing but talk. Jozea was viewed as the villain by the majority of the audience, because he was so arrogant and cocky about everything.
  • Break the Haughty: Was visibly crushed when he was evicted... as evidenced by the expression on his face when he found out before his name was even announced as the first evictee-by-vote that he was voted out in a 7-4-0 decision over Paulie and Bridgette.
  • Brutally Honest: This fact, particularly telling Nicole that she was his target and that he was gunning for the veteran houseguests, was ultimately what caused his undoing. He acknowledged this fact in his exit interview.
  • Camp Gay: It's pretty obvious just by looking at his mannerisms and how he talks.
  • Cassandra Truth: He claimed that James and Nicole were going to be the masterminds of the season; even though James was not even close to a mastermind he is correct about Nicole being a mastermind even though this did not happen until Paulie was evicted. Jozea also encouraged the house to get rid of Paulie which went ignored until Week 8 when Jozea's ally Victor evicted him under his second HOH reign.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Many of the things that Jozea has said have been utterly ridiculous, among them his expectation that the Power of Veto would be used on him, completely oblivious that he was the target of the first formal eviction; his belief that he controlled the house with no evidence supporting it (even saying that he is a CEO of the house in his mind), and even comparing himself to President Obama ("I'm preachin' like Obama"). He also had the gall of saying that Independence Day should not be a holiday, a comment that obviously ticked off James (an Army vet) and many live feed viewers. When James confronted Jozea over his comments by telling him that "a lot of Americans died for our freedom," Jozea flippantly replied, "Ain't nobody told them to do that."
  • Dumbass Has a Point: He's clearly seen the first season which had newbies competing alongside returning players, and the second. In spite of how foolish he was, he clearly seems to know about lucky turns of events that returning players often get.
  • Fighting Your Friend: States in the 2nd phase of the Battle Back that even though Victor was his friend, he was still coming at him with full force.
  • Foreshadowing: Jozea has called Nicole a "snake" many times throughout the season believing that's who she really was on her original season. Jozea turned out to be correct on foreshadowing what Nicole's new gameplay was. Michelle even admitted it in her second final plea speech on the double eviction saying "Nicole's a snake! Jozea was right."
  • Gay Best Friend: Apparently was this for Victor, who is the straight one of the duo. This was evidenced following Jozea's eviction, when Victor cried in a DR entry, after losing his closest ally in the house.
  • Reality Show Genre Blindness: Jozea showed throughout his first two weeks in the house that he is completely clueless about the game and some aspects of the show itself (among them, confusing former finalist Rachel Reilly with Rachael Ray; believing (along with Paul) that the live eviction occurred on Sundaysnote  instead of Thursdays; not knowing who Zingbot is; and inventing the final three Veto, despite the fact that there aren't enough houseguests at that point in the game to warrant a Veto competition). In addition, he also failed to realize that acting like an egotistical Entitled Bastard is a surefire way to put a target on you for eviction early in the game.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Jozea's ego is off the charts, which plays a big part in his undoing.
  • Token Gay Houseguest: Jozea is the sole gay houseguest this season, and the only other LGBT houseguest when Tiffany is factored in.
  • Too Dumb to Live: He tried to win "Dizzy Dog" by constructing the "most stable of all structures... a doggy heart". Paulie called it an "arts and crafts project". Paul ended up winning with the Boring But Effictive strategy of just wedging dog bones in place like a caveman.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Paul and Victor.

     Edward "Glenn" Garcia (Evicted HG #01) 

Edward "Glenn" Garcia (Evicted HG #01)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/glenn_69.png

Born: 1965/1966? (age at time of competition: 50)
Hometown: Bronx, NY
Current City Of Residence : Bronx, NY
Occupation: Dog Groomer/Former Police Detective
Number Of HOH Wins: 0
Number Of POV Wins: 0
Number Of Times Nominated: 0
Number Of Times As Have-Not: 0
Prizes/Punishments Won: $2,500
Team: Freakazoids (Nicole, Corey, Tiffany, Glenn)
Finished: 16th Place
Evicted: NONE (No Vote)
HOH/POV Evicted Under: NONE (Lost Comp/1st OUT)

  • 100% Adoration Rating: Glenn was beloved by the entire house and they felt very sad to see him go. It was upsetting on many levels to see him leave because a lot of houseguests wanted him to stay over Nicole and Corey. Nicole was first to finish the last part of "Hit the Road" and Corey was last to survive, who would go on to become the most unlikable pair in the house, foreshadowing of the awful things to come.
  • Action Dad: Averted. Glenn was the sole father of the house, but he was definitely not a competitor by any means. He was such a bad competitor that he ended up losing the competition and being the very first houseguest evicted of the season. The only subversion came near the end when he actually did a decent job at the last Hit the Road challenge with the coconut oasis, nearly managing to set down all his coconuts to spell out "SOS" and raise his flag at the same time Corey did.
  • Bald of Awesome: Glenn has a visibly bald head..and he's very much a decent and good person.
  • Big Applesauce: Glenn was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. It's evident that he's a hardcore New Yorker going by his very strong New York accent.
  • The Big Guy: Glenn was the only heavy-set male houseguest of the season whose build was not entirely muscular.
  • Born Unlucky: And how! First, Glenn was chosen last when it came to the veterans picking newbies for who they wanted on their teams. Although he did manage to garner some luck when his team (The Freakazoids) ended up winning $10,000 ($2,500 for each team member) for coming in second place. Unfortunately, his luck ran out there because his team ended up losing the second and third competitions which meant that all of the team members of Freakazoids had to compete against each other for safety and to prevent themselves from being evicted. He ended up losing the competition to Corey and coming in last by a photo finish, which resulted in him being eliminated and evicted from the game. And if that wasn't bad enough, he lost in the first round of the Battle Back Competition to Jozea of all people and was then eliminated from the game permanently. For someone that wasn't in the game that long, Glenn sure had a lot of bad luck. The Big Brother Gods most definitely weren't a fan of Glenn! Glenn himself stated in his non-traditional elimination that he hated all of the twists in the first day of the game because they kept him from taking charge and doing his own thing and he didn't want to be a team member as opposed to a leader.
  • Cool Old Guy: He's a former police detective. This is to be expected. Incidentally, at 50, he is the second oldest houseguest to appear on the show since "Evel Dick" Donato, right behind Jerry MacDonald.
  • Do Not Go Gentle: He struggled for a very long and difficult time against Corey in Hit the Road, with the loss hitting a lot of people hard and bringing a few other houseguests to tears. Paul gave him respect and a lot of love for his performance.
  • Fair Cop: Glenn mentioned that he didn't want to reveal the fact that he used to be a New York detective to the houseguests in order to help him in the game, only choosing to reveal he is a dog groomer. However, on the live feeds Michelle did not believe he was a dog groomer and in her first Periscope watching the first episode of the season her suspicions were right that Glenn used to be a cop.
  • Foreshadowing: Glenn said he liked Paul as a person and would love to have a drink with him sometime, but Paul in the house is on "one hundred" all the time and that can get annoying after a while. In the next season, Cody Nickson blew up at Paul for always being so obnoxious. Also, Glenn noticed Victor was very close with the ladies and also could get on people's nerves and expected it to blow up on him quickly, and it did, as Victor was the third boot of the season and they competed in separated heats in the Battle-Back Competition. What Glenn did not expect, however, was that Victor would be extremely tenacious and win his way back into the game repeatedly, while Glenn himself would do so badly that he lost to the guy who made a mockery of Dizzy Dog.
  • Older Than They Look: Glenn surprised many of the houseguests when he said he was 50.
  • Picked Last: For the first challenge. Poor guy... Lampshaded by him in a confessional. Ironically he was also the first evicted.
  • Poor Communication Kills: He was very annoyed that the other Freakazoids were not listening to him when they were building a sandcastle.
  • Sore Loser: Glenn's photo-finish loss to Corey in the final round of the Hit the Road competition didn't sit well with him, as stated in a TV Guide post-eviction interview, when he stated that he would have preferred to have been evicted by a vote, because "then at least I am playing the whole aspect of the game."
  • Team Dad: Glenn is the only one of the "newbie" contestants this season who is a father.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: And he looked to be one of the more interesting newbies. He lost to Corey in the SOS competition deciding the season's first evictee by only a few milliseconds, after Corey pulled out his flag at almost the same time as Glenn. As such, Glenn is the first houseguest to have been evicted because they lost in a competition. He also did not get to exit out of the house the normal way- he was just left behind in the competition room without his bag or anything, and the other houseguests came back to his picture grayed out, shocking them even more. Softening the blow, though, is the fact that he won $2,500 in the Hit the Road immunity challenge when the Freakazoids finished the round in second place. His chance to re-enter the game in the Battle Back competition doesn't go well, either, as he loses to Jozea in the first round... after losing his lead to Jozea in the competition.
