Bryan Ollie (called by his last name, Ollie) was a houseguest on Big Brother 10.

Ollie was known for his intimate showmance with April Dowling, deal with Dan Gheesling to throw the HoH to Dan, but in return, Ollie controls the nominations, only for Dan to go back on his word and nominate Ollie's ally Michelle Costa at the PoV ceremony which caused Ollie to engage in multiple arguments with the other houseguests. He was evicted during the second half of the Fast Forward week by a unanimous 3-0 vote, placing 6th and becoming the fourth member of the jury.

As the son of a preacher, Ollie grew up in a strict Pentecostal family where, in his father's church, faith healing and speaking in tongues were practiced. His father is his hero because he totally supported his entire family - his mother, three sisters and two brothers for two decades. Ollie fondly calls his family the "Black Brady Bunch." To this day, Ollie does not drink, smoke or curse; staying true to the values he was raised with as a child.

Ollie describes himself as animated, energetic and good looking. His proudest accomplishment is receiving a full athletic scholarship to college where he played football. He's a real sports fan and likes to watch football, basketball and the World Series. His favorite activities are working out, skiing and hanging out with friends and he listens to hip-hop, R&B and gospel music.

His ideal mate is classy… but sassy. He says he pierced both of his ears while in college to impress a girl. The things he would like to accomplish are financially oriented, i.e. earning enough money to be set for life by making a smart investment, creating the next best invention and/or winning the lottery. He's not into politics though he says he votes every four years.

Ollie attended Iowa State University in Ames, IA, and graduated with a Bachelor's of Arts degree. He was a sociology/communication studies major.

His birth date is October 22, 1980.[1]
