Big Brother Wiki

This article is about the Contestant from Big Brother 12 (US). For the Canadian Contestant, see Andrew James Gordon.

Andrew Ian Gordon was a houseguest on Big Brother 12 (US).

A poor social player, Andrew quickly found himself on the bottom of the house alongside his ally Brendon Villegas and his showmance Rachel Reilly. After being nominated as a pawn to backdoor one of them, the plan backfired and Andrew remained on the block come eviction night. Despite his campaigns of trying to throw Hayden Moss and Kristen Bitting under the bus, his plan failed as he was evicted by a vote of 8-0, placing 11th.
