The thirteenth season of the hit American reality shows Big Brother has now premiered. A total of twelve housemates entered the Big Brother house in California on July 2, 2011. Season 1 aired on CBS from July 7 to September 14, 2011.
There is some continuity with past seasons in Big Brother 13, however, there are also significant gameplay changes. Eight brand-new housemates were introduced at the start. They were told to find a partner and work together. Six previous Big Brother houseguests entered the house in pairs later.
Housemates compete each week to see who will be named Head of Household and receive immunity from elimination with their chosen partner. Another pair must be chosen for elimination by the HOH. After the HOH has named a nominee, a Power of Veto competition is held later in the week, and either member of the duo can be saved from eviction.
The 13th season of Big Brother has been released, and here is the cast of Big Brother 13:
Who Were the Big Brother Season 13 Cast Members?
Shelly Moore is currently 43 years old and was born in Centerville, Ohio. She is currently living in Prairieville, La, and is Outdoors Industry Executive by profession.
Big Brother 13 has Shelly Moore as a HouseGuest. She and her duo partner, Cassi Colvin, were very successful. After Cassi was booted in the second week, she received a Golden Key. Her later duo partner, Adam Poch, was responsible for releasing the duo twist back on the house. She was voted off in week 8 with a 2-1 margin. As the sixth-place finisher and fourth member of the jury, she had an important role to play.
Porsche Briggs currently lives in Miami Beach, Fla. She was born on October 27, 1987, and is currently 34 years old. She is a VIP Cocktail Waitress by profession.
Her early-on pair partner was Keith Henderson. Porsche’s partner, Keith, was voted out of the house in the first week, and Porsche was nominated by the Veterans alliance to win the competition and the Golden Key. She was the last member of her alliance to advance, and Rachel was the one to bring her to the final two. The final vote was close (4-3), and Porsche ended up in second place.
Lawon Exum is currently 50 years old and was born in Urbana, Ill. He is currently living in Inglewood, Calif., and is a Legal File Clerk by profession.
On Season 13 of Big Brother, Lawon Kehinde Exum was a HouseGuest. Kalia Booker was his companion in their partnership. He asked the other housemates to vote him out in week 5, and they did so by a count of 6-0; his plan was to return to the competition with “special powers” if he was successful. He lost 10th place because he never made it back to the house.
Keith Henderson was born in Bolingbrook, Ill. He was born on April 8, 1966, and is currently 56 years old. He is a Human Resources Manager.
The 13th season of Big Brother featured Keith Henderson as a HouseGuest. When he was in a pair, his partner was Porsche Briggs. He took the brunt of the jokes during Week 1 since people assumed he was the toughest of the new recruits. When the houseguests found out that he was trying to split up the HOH veterans, they all sided with the veterans, and he was voted out by a vote of 6 to 4.
Kalia Booker is currently 41 years old and was born in Allen, Texas. She is currently living in Nashville, Tenn., and is a Model by profession.
Kalia Lynne Booker participated in Big Brother 13 as a HouseGuest. Lawon Exum served as her companion in the pair. Kalia and her partner were one of the more formidable newcomers, and they started off by playing an “under-the-radar” game.
Dominic Briones was born in San Mateo, Calif. He is currently 36 years old and was born on April 17, 1986.
On season 13 of Big Brother, Dominic Phillip Briones participated as a HouseGuest. Adam Poch served as his companion in the duet. Dominic rose to the position of leader of the Regulators alliance, which ultimately proved to be doomed. As soon as his threat to the overall strategy was recognized, he became the focus of attention. He was eliminated in week 3 with a vote of 7-1, ultimately coming in 11th place.
Cassi Colvin was born in Allen, Texas, and is currently living in Nashville, Tenn. She was born on July 5, 1985, and is currently 37 years old. She works as a Model.
On Big Brother 13, Cassi Lynn Colvin was a houseguest. To complete the combo, she teamed up with Shelly Moore. A majority of the house turned against Cassi after she and Shelly were nominated as substitute nominees in Week 2 by Jordan Lloyd and then got into a disagreement with Rachel Reilly. After receiving zero votes from the jury, she was eliminated and placed 12th.
Adam Poch was born in East Brunswick, N.J., and is currently living in Hoboken. He is a Music Inventory Manager.
For Season 13 of Big Brother, Adam David Poch was a HouseGuest. Dominic Briones was his companion in their combo. It was with Shelly Moore that he formed their second partnership. Adam’s approach paid off, and despite being labeled a floater for much of the game, he made it all the way to the last three players.
Jordan Lloyd is 35 years old and is a winner of season 11. He is currently 44 years old. According to the rules, Jeff is the only houseguest to ever win Head of Household and then be ousted the following week. During the Big Brother 13 double eviction, Jeff won Head of Household in the first round but was ultimately voted out in the second.
During their time in BB13, Jeff and Brendon Villegas are the only two houseguests who consistently voted with the majority.
Daniele Donato was born on August 20, 1986, and is currently 36 years old. Before Big Brother 19, Daniele had previously appeared on Big Brother 8 with her father, Dick Donato, in the rivals twist.
The two Heads of Household competitions she won and the five Power of Veto competitions she won during the season were what propelled her and Dick to the final two. She got 2 votes and finished second.
Bar manager and podcaster Richard Louis Donato (born June 24, 1963), better known as Evel Dick, hails from Los Angeles, California. When season 8 of Big Brother came to a close, he was declared the victor.
American TV host, actress, and reality show contestant Rachel Eileen Reilly Villegas was born on October 16, 1984. Reilly competed in and won Season 13 of the American version of Big Brother in 2011, after competing in the show for two seasons.
Brendon and Rachel’s showmance in Big Brother 12 was a major highlight of the season. In Week 5, Rachel was eliminated, making Brendon the last remaining original cast member. He made it through the next two elimination rounds by winning the Power of Veto and the title of Head of Household in Week 7.
A Double Eviction occurred in week 7, and despite using the PoV to save himself, he was voted out in the second half of the episode by a score of 3-0. He was the fourth judge because he came in sixth.
