Big Brother Wiki

Stephen Russell "Steve" Arienta[2] was a houseguest on Big Brother 20 (US).

A low-key player, Steve fell victim to a last minute blindside. After his group was not chosen to be immune by Swaggy C, Steve was nominated by HOH Tyler Crispen alongside Sam Bledsoe. Since Tyler had a better relationship with Sam, he managed to convince his Level Six alliance, with the help of JC Mounduix and Kaitlyn Herman, to blindside Steve in 16th place after a 7-6 vote.
