Big Brother Wiki

Brandon "Frenchie" French was a houseguest on Big Brother 23 (US).

Frenchie started his game on a high note, becoming captain of the Jokers team, drafting his group, and winning HoH. When presented with a “double or nothing” opportunity to earn himself and his team safety for the first two weeks, he declined. Frenchie spent the first couple of days shifting through his nomination options, all while making promises to various houseguests. Though he settled on a “meathead” first boot, he went back on his word of not nominating women, intending to aim at Christian Birkenberger and Alyssa Lopez, believing that the two of them were forming a showmance. When people were understandably furious at his choice, he brought them into The Slaughterhouse alliance and attempted to target Derek Xiao, who happened to go on and win the veto. He got a final target in Travis Long, but this target also proved to be a difficult choice for him, as he had also promised him safety in the very first minutes of the game.

When Kyland Young won HOH the following week, Frenchie knew that he was in trouble. Feeling like all eyes were on him, Frenchie decided to sell out his “Slaughterhouse” alliance to everyone not involved. They, in turn, threw him under the bus, and Kyland returned the favor after being nominated by Frenchie last week and nominated him alongside Britini D'Angelo. He continued to make promises, like saying he would use the veto to take Britini off the block if he won it. When he lost the Veto competition, he was ready to go home right then and there, before realizing that he could attempt to make even more deals to avoid going out. Unfortunately for him, none of the houseguests were interested in keeping him after his disastrous HOH week. Frenchie was then evicted by a 11-1 vote, placing 15th.


Brandon "Frenchie" French Biography

Brandon “Frenchie” French
Age: 34
Hometown: Camden, Tennessee
Current City: Clarksville, Tennessee
Occupation: Farmer

Three words that describe you: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, compassionate, and exuberant.

Favorite activities: “Yes” days with the kids, fishing, playing with the baby animals, and grilling out.

Who are your favorite Houseguest duos?
Definitely Britney Haynes and Rachel’s hair extensions!

What are you most excited about living inside the Big Brother house?
Living out my dream of being here. I learned life is way too short with the passing of my son so just being able to live out this dream. I’m here to WIN, not to get famous!

What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house?
For me it’s being away from my kids and the farm.

What is your favorite past moment on Big Brother?
Dan’s funeral on my daughter’s birthday was legendary!

What is your strategy for winning the game?
Building relationships with everyone, not just your alliance. Being a farmer, no two days are the same. You never know what to expect. I always have to evolve and change gameplans on a daily basis and I have got really good at it. Set strategies are overrated and crumble, so my lifestyle fits perfect with the Big Brother house.

My lifes motto is…
“You will always go through rocky times, but together we can crush those rocks into fine sand and create our own paradise!”

What would you take into the house and why?
A picture of my son who passed away because it motivates me like no other. A fishing pole because it would be fun catching other Houseguests from the HOH balcony lol, a voice recorder because everyone in that house lies and then I’d have proof of what was said.

Fun facts about myself:
-At 13 I won the NFL national punt pass and kick competition.
-We have a two-time grand national champion show bull that lives better than most humans.
-I’m a proud member of the NAACP.
-I’m prior military.
-The only thing that I’m scared of in life is our devil rooster.[1]
