Hayden Garrett Moss was the winner of Big Brother 12.

During the early stages of the game, Hayden was targeted for being in a showmance with Kristen Bitting. His presence in the dominant Brigade alliance and his ability to win four Head of Household competitions allowed him to ultimately stay in the Big Brother House for 75 days and receive four of the seven Jury votes to be crowned the champion over fellow Brigade alliance member Lane Elenburg.

Hayden's promotional photo with Kat Edorrson for Survivor: Blood vs. Water

  • In 2013, Hayden competed on Survivor: Blood vs. Water as the loved one of his girlfriend, Survivor: One World castaway, Kat Edorsson. Kat was eliminated in 14th place, while Hayden was eliminated in 7th place. Although he originally made it to the final five, he had his placement dropped due to the Redemption Island twist. Hayden was on the Tadhana tribe, comprised of the loved ones against the returning players, and he remained on that tribe after the tribe switch. Hayden was still present in the game when the tribes merged, and so he was then placed on the merged Kasama tribe. His biggest move was convincing Ciera to force a 3-3 deadlock and an eventual rock draw, where Hayden was immune per Survivor rules since the rival alliance targeted him.[2]
  • In 2014, Hayden and Kat ended their relationship.[3]
  • On July 4, 2014, an app called Devvie was released for creating and sharing mobile videos in which Hayden was co-creator.[4][5]
