Being born and raised in Dana Point in California, Branden has quite a passion for surfing. He’s also worked as an international model and an actor, even though he enjoys sleeping most of the time. This bachelor is also fond of talking to girls, but one subject he’ll probably shut up about is his fear of drowning. However, he does like the color blue (because he claims it compliments his eyes) and lists sushi as his favorite food.
The cocky 28-year-old perpetually boasts about his charm and desirability, even going so far as calling himself a fashion icon. He designs his own jewelry, but isn’t really willing to hang out with “fashionistas who think they are too cool for school.” He also believes that he’ll go places with his self-perceived looks and intelligence. Despite his pride, Braden is pretty laid-back and mellow. He worries about stressing out so much on Big Brother, but he’s hoping it’ll teach him to be patient.
Known for making up his own words, Braden’s strategy to win it all is to become a two-faced personality in the house. As a contestant on the 11th season of Big Brother, he competed against 11 other aspirants and a mystery houseguest. The show is hosted by Julie Chen, and is executive-produced by Allison Grodner, Rich Meehan and Scott Einziger. Unfortunately, Braden was the first to be eliminated on the show.
