In Big Brother 12, Enzo became well-known for his use of his moniker "the meow-meow" and was a member of The Brigade, an alliance which helped him make it to the final 3. He ultimately placed 3rd after Hayden Moss cast the sole vote to evict him, thus making him the seventh and final member of the jury.
In Big Brother 22, Enzo found himself in a comfortable position as an affiliate of The Committee alliance. He was particularly close with Committee members Cody and Memphis, having a final 3 deal with them called the Wise Guys, and a final 2 alliance with Cody called The Root. He proved to be better in competitions this time around, winning 2 HoH's, 1 PoV, and 1 Safety competition. He overall made very safe moves, nominating obvious target Kaysar and also keeping Nicole F over David in final 8. He made it to the final 3 without being nominated. After Cody won the final HoH, he brought Enzo to the final 2. He had a dislike towards Kaysar and successfully backdoored him in Week 4, and clashed with Janelle over conflicting personalities, but developed friendships with Bayleigh, Nicole F, Dani, including stronger ones with Cody, Christmas and Memphis forming a final 2 alliance called “The Wise Guys”. However, Enzo's subtle game wasn't respected for Cody's dominant and aggressive game, and he gave poor answers to the jury's questions, causing him to finish second to Cody in a unanimous 9-0 vote, making Enzo the second ever houseguest to receive 0 jury votes, after Memphis. Enzo's decision to keep Nicole over David in final 8 has been viewed as one of the weakest moves in Big Brother history.
