Big Brother 13 Houseguest Profile: Brendon Villegas

Before they came to Big Brother 13 as one of the three returning ‘dynamic duos’, Brendon Villeges and Rachel Reilly, otherwise known as Brenchel, were the power couple of Big Brother 12. Brenchel managed to use each other quite nicely on Big Brother 12 for a number of weeks before their backstabbing and way too annoying selves got booted out by the rest of the house. Now they are trying to take over the Big Brother 13 house and make it all the way to the end this time.

Big Brother 13 Houseguest Profile: Brendon Villegas

Brendon Villegas - BIG BROTHER 12 (CBS)

Brendon Villegas, 30, is a High School Swim Coach from Riverside, California. He describes himself as “fun, driven and intelligible” and enjoys “running, basketball, swimming and cycling.” The most difficult part of living in the Big Brother house for Brendon, he said before season 12 started, would be the lack of privacy. Oh, and he hates mean-spirited people and bigots.

Oddly enough, the thing that Brendon ended up doing to himself on Big Brother 12 was giving himself absolutely no privacy at all. Once he hooked up with Rachel, the poor guy ended up without a moment to himself without her bossing him around, demanding his attention or otherwise getting all up in his face. Kind of the same thing she is doing to him this season on Big Brother 13!

More Tidbits About Brendon Villegas:

Brendon may appear to be a jock – and he said that would be the way he was going to play it up on Big Brother – but he also claims to have brains. (Which sometimes we wonder out despite his degrees due to his relationship with Rachel.) In addition to his job as a swim coach, Brendon is also working on a PhD in physics. 

Brendon described himself as “very much a nerd,” according to and said before BB12 that his goal is to “not intimidate the guys and to be flirty with the girls.” Brendon all geared up and ready to have “showmance” with another houseguest before even getting into the BB12 house. So it wasn’t much of a surprise when he hooked with Rachel pronto the minute she threw herself at him.

Sleuthing Brendon:

Brendon’s Facebook profile can be found here and we love how he makes sure all those education degrees are right up front where everyone can’t fail to see them immediately. He apparently hopes to be graduating with that biomedical physics degree in 2014. We wish him luck now that he’s planning on getting married to Rachel! You can also check out his Twitter feed over here, where his last pre-Big Brother 13 Tweet is, of course, direct at Rachel.

Brendon still also has an old profile on – an Internet radio site – On the profile, he lists his school as California State Long Beach and his employer as “Top secret laboratory”. This seems to be a standing joke for him, as on his Facebook profile he lists that he previous worked at “Area 51”. On his Pandoor profile, Brendon says he likes all music except country and includes songs such as “Purple Rain,” “My Prerogative,” and “Message in a Bottle” as among his favorites. His favorite online radio stations include: The 80s Radio, No Doubt Radio, Harry Connick Jr. Radio and Duran Duran Radio.

Brendon Villegas, being a very athletic guy, is listed as a participant in numerous charity marathons and races, including the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, the 20th Annual Harbor Heritage 5K Run and the Valley Crest Half Marathon.

Bredon kept dating Rachel after Big Brother 12 finished, which frankly we found a bit surprising. He did, however, cheat on her in quite a nastily public fashion. Brendon was caught sending naked penis photos to some random girl via Skype and engaging in cybersex. Rachel at first would have nothing to do with him after that. Then, like a pansy, he posted a weepy public apology video about the whole thing. After which, she forgave him and then got engaged to him on Valentine’s Day. Seriously. These two are totally screwed up.

Our Thoughts on Brendon:

We were kind of fond of Brendon from the information we gathered before Big Brothe 12 started. He seemed like a pretty stand-up guy. The whole relationship with Rachel – and the nastiness with his “friend” Andrew – kind of killed that image though. Let’s not forget, the nastiest backstabbing often comes out of the people you originally think are the ‘good’ ones.

It’s obvious Brendon had a huge target on his back through much of the Big Brother 12 season – mostly because of Rachel. Now that Rachel is ramping up the drama once again in the new season, we could easily see that happening again.
