Robert "Memphis" Garrett is the runner-up of Big Brother 10 (US) and was a houseguest on Big Brother 22 (US).

In BB10, He was a member of The Renegades alliance, made it to the Final 2 but lost the finale prize to his alliance member Dan in a unanimous 7-0 vote, placing 2nd and becoming first of four finalists to receive zero jury votes to win in Big Brother North American history.

In BB22, Memphis began by forming a final 2 alliance with Cody called The Commission, and becoming the creator of the dominant The Comittee alliance. He was close with Committee allies Cody, Enzo and Christmas, having a final 2 alliance with Cody, a final 3 alliance with Cody and Enzo called the Wise guys, and a second version of the wise guys with Enzo and Christmas. He was a competition threat this time, winning 3 HoH's and 1 PoV. At the final 5, Committee ally Nicole became the HoH and nominated him as the target alongside Christmas, though he believed he was the pawn. When neither won the PoV, they stayed on the block, with Memphis still believing he was the pawn. However, he was evicted in a unanimous 2-0 vote for being seen as a bigger threat. He finished in 5th place, and as the 7th member of the jury.

He can sometimes be petty, and rude, especially towards David, whom he had a massive running-feud with, as he believed that he was the rookie of the house, resulting in a plan to back door him during his Week 7 HOH. He also had unwanted clashes with Tyler, due to the latter refusing to use the veto for protecting his rival. Despite this, he developed a friendship with Kaysar, including stronger ones with Christmas, Cody and Enzo.

Trivia

  • Memphis won the first competition in Big Brother 10 winning a new car. Although Steven won the rock, paper, scissors competition against him, Steven jumped out of the car with time running out. However, as it turned out, Big Brother couldn't give Memphis the car because it already had an owner. The car was almost immediately returned to that owner and Memphis got an undisclosed amount of money as consolation.
