Brandi Lynn Glanville[2] was a housemate on Celebrity Big Brother 20 (UK) and a houseguest on Celebrity Big Brother 1 (US).

She is best known for her friendships with Ariadna Gutierrez and Ross Mathews, her rivalry with James Maslow, and her loud mouth. Brandi was never afraid to tell it how it was and was always brutally honest which ultimately painted a target on her back. Despite her reputation, Brandi still played the game hard as shown when she suggested to backdoor ally, but huge threat, Shannon Elizabeth and her willingness to cut allies when needed. On the 3rd eviction night of the season, she threw a sympathy vote for Shannon, the target, to stay which led her allies to mistrust her. In Week 3, HOH Mark McGrath targeted Brandi for her rivalry with James and she was ultimately evicted during the first half of the Double Eviction, placing 7th and becoming the fifth member of the jury.
