Howie Gordon was a houseguest on Big Brother 6 and Big Brother 7.

On Big Brother 6, his secret partner was Rachel Plencner. He was known mostly for his loud mouth, making Star Wars references, heated arguments with members of The Friendship Alliance, most notably April Lewis, and being manipulated by The Friendship alliance leader Maggie Ausburn into targeting his alliance members James Rhine and Sarah Hrejsa during his HoH reign in week 5. Howie was nominated alongside his last remaining ally, Janelle, during the second half of the second Double Eviction, and when Janelle won the PoV and took herself off the block, Howie became The Friendship's new target. He was evicted when HOH Ivette Corredero cast the tie-breaker vote against him. He placed 5th and was the fifth member of the jury.

Howie was chosen by Big Brother fans to return for Big Brother 7. He stuck with his Sovereign Six alliance, being the only one of the four to not win HOH. He was also remembered for his obsession and playful banter with housemate Will Kirby. In Week 7, Howie was betrayed by his "Jedi Padawan" George Allen Boswell, the current HOH, and was evicted during the first half of the Double Eviction by a vote of 3 to 2, placing 8th and becoming the second member of the jury.
