2 of Big Brother’s All-Stars Are From New Jersey
Big Brother All-Stars 2020 debuted last week on CBS and 2 of the reality show's contestants are from New Jersey.
If you're not familiar with Big Brother, this is the 22nd season of the long-running reality show where contestants are put in a house and secluded from the rest of the world. One by one, contestants are voted out until just one person remains. That person walks away with a $500,000 prize.
Traditionally, Big Brother has started in early July, but this year due to the coronavirus, production was pushed back to August.
Season 22 features 16 contestants and all of them have appeared on at least one previous season of the show.
The first New Jerseyan in this season's cast is Cody Calafiore. According to his bio on cbs.com, Calafiore is from Howell, NJ. The 29-year old finished in second place on Season 16 of Big Brother.
Calafiore attended both Monmouth University and Temple University and according to his Facebook page, he now works as a real estate agent in Monmouth County.
