Pegged as a dark horse to win his season, Bruno surrounded himself around big targets in the game, such as Graig Merritt, Bobby Hlad and Zach Oleynik. Bruno is noted for his under-the-radar manipulation of his allies and his use of targeted players as shields (such as saving Zach during Triple Eviction with his POV). However, he was also prone to paranoia and scrambling whenever a close ally was in jeopardy, a flaw that led to his downfall. Bruno ultimately lost the game after a heated argument with the Fembots (Sarah Hanlon and Brittnee Blair). Unbeknownst to him, Brittnee won a Coup d'Etat like power, and overthrew Ashleigh Wood's nominations and replaced them with Zach and Bruno. Bruno was then evicted in a unanimous vote.
