Corey Brooks was a HouseGuest on Big Brother 18.

He was known for being in a showmance with Nicole and for being a member of the 8-Pack alliance. Corey was in a comfortable position until the first half of the Double Eviction where Zakiyah Everette was blindsided, thus leaving Corey, Nicole and their ally Paulie Calafiore on the bottom, though the three regained power during the second half of the double eviction when Corey won the HoH and PoV. However, he and Paulie were nominated the next week, but Corey survived eviction and Paulie was eliminated. Despite being on the outs along with Nicole, both of them manipulated HoH Natalie Negrotti into targeting Paul Abrahamian and Victor Arroyo during week 9. When Paul won the PoV, Corey was made the replacement nominee. However, James Huling, who was the deciding vote, spared Corey and evicted Victor. When Victor returned by winning the jury buyback and Nicole became the HoH, Corey and Nicole flipped on James and made a final four deal with Paul and Victor. However, when Corey became the HoH at the final 5, both he and Nicole flipped on Paul and Victor and worked with James to evict Victor for the third and final time. However, when Paul became the HoH at the final 4, he nominated Corey and Nicole. When Paul won the PoV, he kept the nominations the safe. Ultimately, James obeyed Paul's wish and cast the sole vote to evict Corey. He finished in 4th place and was the eighth member of the jury.

Three adjectives that describe you: Extraordinary, passionate, and lovable.
Favorite activities: I love to travel. Recently, I went to San Francisco to watch my best friend, Ross Stripling, make his MLB debut for the L.A. Dodgers. I like sightseeing, hiking, getting sick bro pics, playing sports, going out and meeting people, trying out new restaurants, playing PS4, and just being active, in general.
My life's motto is... Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get!

Post Big Brother

  • On November 23, 2016, Corey was featured in one of Tomi Lahren's Final Thoughts: "Millennial Voices Make America Great Again" [1]


  • Corey is the third houseguest to win HOH and POV within the same week in Big Brother 18. The others to do this were Paulie and Bridgette (and later Victor, Nicole, and Paul) respectively.
    • He is also the second houseguest to win the POV twice in Big Brother 18, following Paulie.
  • Corey is the only newbie from the Freakazoids to make it to the jury phase in Big Brother 18.
  • Corey is tied with Big Brother 11 HouseGuest Michele Noonan, Big Brother 15 HouseGuests Helen Kim and Elissa Slater, and Big Brother 19 HouseGuests Mark Jansen and Josh Martinez for the most weeks spent as a Have-Not in a single season with four.
    • He is the first male to hold this record.
  • Corey is the fourth HouseGuest to win the Power of Veto in all three situations (as HOH, as a nominee, and as a picked player). The first  HouseGuests to accomplish this were Daniele Donato, Shane Meaney & Paulie Calafiore respectively.
  • Corey is tied with Paulie and Paul for the most PoV competitions won in Big Brother 18 with three wins each.
  • Corey, along with Da'Vonne, Tiffany, and Bridgette (until finale night) always voted with the majority.
    • He is the only male that has always voted with the majority
    • Out of all HouseGuests who always voted with the majority, he casts more votes than any other HouseGuest, with 8 (9 if the finale is included).
  • Corey created controversy for making homophobic comments on his Twitter account, and later on the live feeds by making jokes about some of his friends taking part in animal abuse.
    • Frankie Grande (who is also a controversial HouseGuest) reacted to Corey's homophobic tweets by saying, "I hope one day someone sticks it in you [to accept the gay community] and you figure it out [to accept others for who they are]."
