He was best known for his friendship with Christmas Abbott, banging pots and pans through the house, his DR confessionals, and heated arguments with several houseguests. At the first HoH competition, he took the golden apple which granted him immunity for the week because he believed he was a target. He then proceeded to lash out at Megan Lowder and call her a snake. He got into several heated arguments with Cody Nickson, Jessica Graf, Kevin Schlehuber, Elena Davies and Mark Jansen. On several occasions, he banged pots and pans which was a strategy Dick Donato used in BB8. The latter two combined with his emotional outbursts made him a target early on, but he eventually got his foot in the door and started working with Paul Abrahamian and Christmas. For the most part, he followed Paul's orders, but eventually, he realized Paul was making everyone else do his dirty work, and he saw how dominant Paul's game was. He then began using his goodbye messages to expose Paul's lies and, ultimately, thwarted his attempts to shift all blame onto him and Christmas. During the final weeks of the game, he contemplated turning on Paul several times, especially after winning the Final 5 HOH, but never actually did it. When he won the final HoH, he made a risky decision to take Paul to the final 2, believing that the jury disliked Paul more than either himself or Christmas. His risky decision paid off as he was awarded the win in a 5-4 vote.

Retrieved from CBS.com Age: 23 Hometown: Miami, FL Current City: Homestead, FL Occupation: Hair Care Sales Three Adjectives: Ambitious, courageous and passionate Favorite Activities: I enjoy playing sports, going to the gym, reading, hiking, traveling, meeting new people, being an adrenaline junkie and having new experiences. What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house?
The hardest part of living in the house will be being away from my family and not hearing from them. We are so close and my siblings are my best friends, so it will be really hard not having contact with them. However, they know that I'm living a dream and playing for them. Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most?
"Evel" Dick Donato from Season 8 is hands down my favorite Houseguest. He always spoke his mind, was an a-hole when he needed to be, didn't care what others thought of him, and, even though he didn't have a good relationship with his daughter, he always defended her, which is kind of the dynamic with my family. Overall he was himself, spoke his mind, and did not give a sh*t about being on anyone's good side. I see a lot of his gameplay in the way I'll play. Do you have a strategy for winning the game?
I have a huge strategy to playing the game and it's simple: lie, cheat, and manipulate. Lie and deceive all these meatballs (aka losers) into doing what I want as I win comps and make them think we're best friends. Also, find that one Houseguest I can completely trust and make it all the way to Final 2. My life's motto is… Play hard, work hard, and live your life the way you want. Always work for what you want, but enjoy your life and live life to the fullest. Never care about anyone's opinion, as long as you're living your life. What would you take into the house, and why?
- My cell phone because I could stay connected with the world
- My mom because she could cook and clean for me
- My brother or sister because we would raise hell together Fun facts about yourself:
- Down for new experiences
- I'm an adrenaline junkie
