Britney Elizabeth Godwin (née Haynes) was a houseguest on Big Brother 12 and Big Brother 14.

In BB12, Britney was memorable for her close friendships with Monet Stunson, Lane Elenburg, and Ragan Fox, and for her rivalry with Rachel and Brendon. She was also noted for being unaware that she was helping The Brigade alliance. When she failed to win HOH at the final 4, she became the target for being the only non-Brigade member left. After failing to win the POV, Enzo cast the sole vote to evict her. She placed 4th and was the 6th member of the jury. On finale night, she won the America's Favorite Houseguest award.

In BB14, she was known for returning as a Coach, being a member of The Quack Pack alliance, and her big sister relationships with Ian Terry and Danielle Murphree. Her game came to an end at the final 8 after the target Dan Gheesling managed to miraculously get himself off the block which resulted in HOH Frank Eudy blindsiding Britney and her allies minus Dan by putting her on the block. She was evicted in a 4 to 1 vote, with Ian being the sole vote to keep her. She was the third and final coach to get evicted. She placed 8th and was the second member of the jury.

Britney is also known for her snarky sense of humor and quick wit. She garnered widespread attention and praise for her Diary Room commentary, with one of her comments making the Emmys. Her natural ability to make everyone laugh helped her become a fan favorite and one of the most beloved players of all time. She is also highly intelligent, well-spoken and considered one of the show's greatest social players.

What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: Sharing a bathroom and pretending to laugh at dumb comments
Strategy for winning Big Brother: Pretending to be nice and always a bit elusive - people want what they can't have!
What types of people would you NOT choose to live with you in the house: Egomaniacs and old people
A recurring theme on Big Brother is "expect the unexpected." How would you handle "the unexpected:" I think I can handle anything. I wouldn't like the forced alliances, though.

Finish this sentence: "My life's motto is:" Never regret anything that made you smile. Is there anything else you want the fans to know about yourself: I am so much more than meets the eye!

Big Brother 14

Britney Haynes, the hilarious and sometimes naive Pharmaceutical sales rep, was famously evicted in Season 12 by Enzo, Matt, Lane, and Hayden – “The Brigade.” In Britney’s own words, “I got really badly burned… it was not smart.” This fourth-place finisher has learned from her mistakes and is excited to return as a coach. Her plan is to very carefully and deliberately give her team members just the right amount of information. She knows that playing an emotional game isn’t always the best strategy and she is going to make sure that her team isn’t playing too emotionally and sees the big picture. Since BIG BROTHER 12, Britney got married, moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma and bought a house. This 24-year-old newlywed is looking forward to another summer in the BIG BROTHER house and is hoping to make more memories, like her favorite from season 12: “when Kathy got stuck in the caramel.”[2]
