Jeff Schroeder was a houseguest on Big Brother 11, and later returned for Big Brother 13, partnered with Jordan Lloyd.

In Big Brother 11, Jeff was best known for his bond and showmance with Jordan, being the second person to hold, and the first to use the power of the Coup d'Etat, leading to the eviction of Jessie Godderz and arguably causing the meltdown and ejection of Chima Simone, and his alliance/rivalry with Russell Kairouz. In Week 8, Jeff was nominated by HOH Kevin Campbell and Kevin ultimately cast the tie-breaker vote against Jeff, thus sending him out of the game. He placed 5th and was the 4th member of the jury.

He returned in Big Brother 13 with Jordan. They joined The Veterans Alliance on the first night, but the coalition splintered after Dick Donato left. In Week 2, he aligned with Shelly Moore. In Week 7, Jeff was nominated by HOH Kalia Booker during the second round of the first Double Eviction. Shelly voted against Jeff thus making the vote a 2-2 tie, and Kalia then cast the tie-breaker vote on Jeff, sending Jeff out of the game. He finished in 7th place and was the third member of the jury.

He is currently the only houseguest to win America's Favorite Houseguest in two different seasons.

Big Brother 11

Jeff, this single advertising salesman, hopes one day to find his perfect mate, and is looking for someone who is fun, beautiful and looks great just hanging around the house. He wouldn't mind a "showmance" with one of his fellow Houseguests if she fits his criteria.

Jeff is a guy's guy who loves to be outdoors and play sports. He especially likes competitive football, which he played in college. To date, the accomplishment he is most proud of is playing running back for Benedictine University.

He describes himself as curious, adventurous, spontaneous, witty and outgoing. If he ran for office, he would like to be Mayor so he can be his own boss and, to some degree, get his own way. He lives by the motto "treat others as you'd like to be treated," and hopes others in the house will live by that too.

Jeff is ecstatic to be selected for BIG BROTHER but hopes not to do anything on television to embarrass himself or his family. He has a big heart, and he wants that to be the thing the audience notices most about him.

Jeff’s birth date is June 5, 1978. [1]
