Cody Christopher Calafiore is the runner-up of Big Brother 16 (US) and the winner of Big Brother 22 (US).

Originally a member of the Bomb Squad in BB16, Cody found himself more loyal to contestant Derrick Levasseur. Together, they formed a Final Two deal called The Hitmen. Cody was initially seen as one of the weaker HouseGuests by viewers. However, as the game progressed, Cody began to play more aggressively winning 3 HoHs and 3 PoVs, and thus making him the fifth male in Big Brother history to win 6 competitions overall in a single season. After he won the final HOH, he chose to infamously evict Victoria Rafaeli and take his fellow Hitmen partner Derrick with him to the Final Two, only to lose in a final Jury vote of 7–2.

His decision to evict Victoria has been considered one of the worst moves ever by the viewers because they believe he could have easily won against Victoria. Most of the jurors have even admitted that Cody would have beaten Victoria.

Cody began BB22 by winning the first HoH. Following his win, both he and Memphis Garrett formed a final 2 alliance called The Commission, and the two brought in other houseguests into their alliance called The Committee. The Committee controlled the season, which kept Cody safe. Cody had several alliances and deals, such as separate final 2 deals with Memphis, Enzo Palumbo and fellow BB16 castmate Nicole Franzel, as well as a final 3 alliance with Enzo and Memphis called The Wise guys. Cody had a hand in evicting several players, including his own allies. He was a competition threat again, winning 4 HoH's and 4 PoV's. Cody managed not to be nominated throughout the season. After winning the Final HoH, he became the first ever houseguest to make it to the final 2 without ever going on the block. Cody's dominant strategic and social games, and competition wins earned him the win in a unanimous 9-0 vote. By having no eviction votes cast against him and receiving all the jury votes, he became the second ever houseguest to play a Perfect Game, after Dan Gheesling and the fourth houseguest overall in Big Brother North American History.

In both of his appearances he has placed 2nd and 1st, which is currently tied for the best result in two appearances in the game. He is the the third player to make it to the Final Two twice.

Current City: Howell, N.J.
Occupation: Sales Account Executive
Three adjectives that describe you: Outgoing, happy-go-lucky and empathetic.
Favorite Activities: I love going on runs, working out and going to the gym.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: From watching previous seasons, not having communications from the outside world seems like the most difficult part, it causes all sorts of paranoia about twists in the game. Also, I always have the TV on to fall asleep; it will be difficult to not have one.
Do you have a strategy for winning Big Brother?: No! Thinking about all the different ways to get to the end is enough to make my head explode! It will be a game time decision for me once I get into the house.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most: Jeff - he was an extremely smart player and was just a genuinely good person.
What are you afraid of: Losing family, snakes and being in the pitch black is pretty freaky.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of: Being picked up by a professional soccer team.
Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… Don't be afraid of falling; be afraid of not having the will to get back up.
What would you do if “Big Brother” made you famous: Continue to watch every season of Big Brother and try and get back onto another season! Cody is a Seventeen Magazine “2014 Hot Guy Panelist,” where he gives young female readers advice on dating and fashion. He was drafted to a pro soccer team in college, but was cut from the team after getting injured. Chick flicks are his guilty pleasure.[1]

Current city: Howell, New Jersey
Occupation: Soccer coach
Previous season: Big Brother 16 (runner-up)
Three adjectives that describe you: Loyal, confident, and caring.
Favorite activities: My favorite activities include golfing, soccer, and video games.
Why do you want to play Big Brother again?
I want to play Big Brother again because of money, money, money, and monayyyyyyy.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house?
The most difficult aspect this time around will be playing the game with people that have already watched me and know exactly who I am.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most and why?
I like Jeff Schroeder, because he's a stand up guy that played the game straight up and wasn’t fake in the slightest way. I also like Boogie, because he was wacky, funny, extremely clever, and witty when it came to the game.
What is your strategy for winning the game?
My strategy is to be myself. I want to be friendly and honest so people feel comfortable opening up to me. I will find one person in the house that I will go through information and stories with, to cross check if people are lying. I don't want to be too close to my closest ally, because I do not want people using our names in the same sentence. I want to win as many competitions as I can to keep myself and my closest allies safe.
How does this strategy differ from the last time you played?
It doesn't differ in the slightest. Don't fix what isn't broken.
Have you changed/evolved since the last time you were on the show?
I have grown and matured a ton since the last time I played. I am able to listen and flag misinformation much better than the first time I played the game. Reading people isn’t my strength, but listening to people is, so I am able to use that to my advantage this go-around.
My life's motto is…
"Don't worry, be happy."
What would you take into the house and why?
-A photo of my family and girlfriend, as a reminder as to why I am playing this game.
Fun facts about yourself:
-I am nasty at video games! (Nasty is a good thing).
-I can solve a Rubik's Cube in under two minutes.
-I can juggle a soccer ball over 1000 times.
-I apparently have a serious problem chewing my food quietly.
-I play the drums.
-I'm a sucker for soda.[2]
