Caleb Matthew Reynolds was a houseguest on Big Brother 16.
Caleb was a co-founding member of the dominating alliance called the Bomb Squad. However, his obsession with fellow contestant Amber Borzotra led him being on the bottom of the alliance, without him knowing. He was also often criticized for his "blindly" loyal game to Derrick Levasseur and Cody Calafiore, being used by them whenever he had power. They used him to evict Nicole Franzel, because she was going after The Hitmen, and Frankie Grande, who genuinely wanted to take Caleb to the final 3, as opposed to Derrick and Cody who had no plans to do the same. When Caleb no longer served a purpose, he was blindsided and evicted by Cody at the final 4.
He was also known for his absurd stories about his life outside the house and went by the nickname Beast-Mode Cowboy.

Occupation: Adventure Hunting Guide
Three adjectives that describe you: Loyal, talented and charming. Favorite Activities: Horseback riding, rock climbing, going to the gym, riding bikes, hunting and fishing.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: The most difficult part is being watched at all times because everything I’m doing my family back at home is watching. Also, throwing a sexy girl that likes me under the bus will be hard but I will do what I have to do, so kiss me, lay with me, have sex with me, tell me you love me, I’m still in it to win.
Do you have a strategy for winning Big Brother?: Yes I have a strategy, I will make sure I have the ladies in my pocket.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most: I liked Hayden because he has the same mindset that I would have had in the house. He plays his cards right even if he has a bad hand and he makes his cards work to his advantage.
What are you afraid of: I’m not a fan of clowns, but other than that I’m pretty fearless. What is the accomplishment you are most proud of: My military service.
Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… If you want something bad enough, do whatever you got to do to get it; no matter the consequence.
What would you take into the house and why: My Bible just to get my daily word in and scriptures to give me guidance and peace. I would take my iPod to put me to sleep, to jam out and to listen to when I hit the weights in the yard. Also, my hair products and hygiene kit so I smell good and look good for the ladies.
What would you do if Big Brother made you famous: I would give back to the people that have helped me and held my hand through my struggles, and I would try my best not to turn into another Justin Bieber.
Caleb joined the army after high school and was a prison guard in Iraq. He and his family run a hunting business, and his favorite movie is The Notebook.
