Cody Calafiore was the runner-up of Big Brother 16.
Originally a member of the Bomb Squad, Cody found himself more loyal to contestant Derrick Levasseur. Together, they formed a Final Two deal called The Hitmen. Cody was initially seen as one of the weaker HouseGuests by viewers. However, as the game progressed, Cody began to play more aggressively winning 3 HoHs and 3 PoVs, and thus making him the fifth male in Big Brother history to win 6 competitions overall in a single season. After he won the final HOH, he chose to infamously evict Victoria Rafaeli and take his fellow Hitmen partner Derrick with him to the Final Two, only to lose in a final Jury vote of 7–2.
His decision to evict Victoria has been considered one of the worst moves ever by the viewers because they believe he could have easily won against Victoria. Most of the jurors have even admitted that Cody would have beaten Victoria.

Three adjectives that describe you: Outgoing, happy-go-lucky and empathetic.
Favorite Activities: I love going on runs, working out and going to the gym.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: From watching previous seasons, not having communications from the outside world seems like the most difficult part, it causes all sorts of paranoia about twists in the game. Also, I always have the TV on to fall asleep; it will be difficult to not have one.
Do you have a strategy for winning Big Brother?: No! Thinking about all the different ways to get to the end is enough to make my head explode! It will be a game time decision for me once I get into the house.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most: Jeff - he was an extremely smart player and was just a genuinely good person.
What are you afraid of: Losing family, snakes and being in the pitch black is pretty freaky.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of: Being picked up by a professional soccer team.
Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… Don't be afraid of falling; be afraid of not having the will to get back up.
What would you do if “Big Brother” made you famous: Continue to watch every season of Big Brother and try and get back onto another season!
Cody is a Seventeen Magazine “2014 Hot Guy Panelist,” where he gives young female readers advice on dating and fashion. He was drafted to a pro soccer team in college, but was cut from the team after getting injured. Chick flicks are his guilty pleasure.
