Who is Cody Calafiore?
Cody Christopher Calafiore was born December 13, 1990, in Hackensack, New Jersey. He attended Monmouth University and later transferred to Temple University. He graduated from Fox School of Business and Management with a Bachelors in business administration. Calafiore first competed on Season 16 of 'Big Brother' back in 2014, where he was the runner-up to Derrick Levasseur.
What has he been up to after winning?
Post his Season 16 TV appearance, Calafiore became a model and signed with New York-based modeling agency Soul Artist Management. He has appeared in several publications such as Winq Magazine, Men's Fitness, LOVE Magazine, Risbel Magazine and The Fashionisto. He also acted in an independent film, 'What Happened Last Night' in 2016.
Calafiore is currently a full-time Twitch streamer. ScreenRant reports that he goes live on the platform every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, where he talks to fans while streaming video games. He is also active on TikTok, seeing that he has 66k followers on the platform.
Fans of the show might want to keep an eye out for Calafiore, seeing that he has teamed up with Season 16 winner Derrick Levasseur to start a YouTube channel where they discuss all things 'Big Brother'.
During their season, the duo was known as 'The Hitmen', having created an alliance early on that allowed them to dominate the show and ultimately win, seeing that they both walked away with cash prizes.
As reported by Showbiz CheatSheet, the channel is called The Winner's Circle and was created a week before the 'Big Brother' Season 23 premiere. The channel will most likely see the two discuss gameplay, cast members, recap moments from Live Feeds and possibly interviews post evictions.
When Calafiore won Season 22 of 'Big Brother: All Stars', he took home a pretty hefty cheque of $500,000, which added to his net worth. Plus, back in Season 16, he won $50,000 as the runner-up. As a result, his current net worth is an estimated $1 million, as reported by Glamour Fame.
However, there are a few conflicting numbers, seeing that Idol Celebs lists his net worth as $1.5 Million - $5.5 Million.
'Big Brother' Season 23 premieres on July 7 at 8/7c on CBS.
