Howie Gordon (also known as Big Boy and Hurricane Howie, born January 7, 1971), was a contestant on the sixth and All-Star seasons of the American version of the CBS reality show Big Brother.

Biography[edit]

Gordon was born at Illinois Masonic Hospital in Chicago, Illinois. He was a typical child and enjoyed the outdoors and animals. In the summer before 8th grade, he injured his hand playing with fireworks; his father had warned him the day before to be careful with explosives. Most of his life he lived in Chicago. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, his mother and father took him to California and Florida.

In his early 20s, Gordon attended Southern Illinois University as a student. During this time he also became a stripper for a short period of time. A year later he attended the University of South Florida in Tampa. After college, he went into sales. Ultimately he hopes to become a meteorologist.

Howie Gordon graduated with a degree in Meteorology in 2010 and is presently applying for positions in Meteorology. He currently works in sales and lives in Chicago, Illinois. Howie can do 80 pushups at a time, and once he caught up to a bus that skipped a stop. He was able to help save someones life by telling them not to drink a gallon of whole milk in one sitting.

Big Brother[edit]

In 2005 Howie was one of fourteen contestants in the American Big Brother 6. His secret partner in the game was his long term friend Rachel Plencner. Both Gordon and Plencner were part of the popular Sovereign Six alliance that battled with The Friendship alliance throughout the summer. Howie openly expressed his hatred for the other alliance, nicknaming them 'The Nerd Herd,' and often tried to unsettle them in the house, in particular April Lewis. Howie was evicted on Day 68 following a tie break vote from HoH, Ivette. Howie eventually had to choose between two friendship members in terms of who won the prize money, and he voted for Maggie, telling her of his regret that he had to choose between America's two most hated houseguests, instead of their two favourites - his friends Janelle Pierzina and Kaysar Ridha.

After reaching the final five in Big Brother 6, Howie was one of the eight housemates that America voted into the Big Brother house to be part of Big Brother: All-Stars. Howie was evicted when George became HoH and joined Marcellas Reynolds as the second member of the jury.

Howie was named Second most wanted house guest to appear in Big Brother 8 by the Big Brother fan community in 2007[1] In 2006 he was chosen the third place as "Reality Blurred's Sexiest Reality Star"
