Also, Godderz trained in TNA's farm territory Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), where he won the OVW Southern Tag Team Championship five times.

Early life[edit]

Godderz was born in Rudd, Iowa. When he was 19 years old, he worked as a conductor for the Union Pacific Railroad. He eventually became a professional bodybuilder with the World Natural Body Building Federation and currently resides in Huntington Beach, California.

Big Brother[edit]

Season 10[edit]

In Week 1, Jerry nominated him and Renny; then he won the Veto and took himself off the block. He was the HoH for Week 2 and nominated Steven and Dan. He was nominated with Angie by Keesha in Week 3 and survived the eviction. He was nominated yet again in Week 4 with Memphis by April, and was evicted by a 4-3 vote. On Day 60, he made an appearance in the house as part of a luxury competition, dressed as a gorilla.

Season 11[edit]

Godderz was given the opportunity to join the Big Brother 11 houseguests at the first head of household competition. His clique, the athletes, won the competition, so Godderz became the 13th houseguest of Big Brother 11.

As part of this seasons twist, Godderz was allowed access back into the House after his clique, the Athletes, won the first Head of Household competition. Despite not competing for the title, Jessie was automatically named the first Head of Household of the season. On Day 19, Godderz became the third Head of Household of the season, making him the first person this season to hold the tile of HoH twice. On Day 40, Jeff exercised the power of Coup d'État and named Jessie and Natalie the nominees up for eviction. He was then evicted on Day 40 by a vote of 3-2, finishing in ninth place and becoming the first member of the Jury. Despite his close friendship with Natalie in the House, he surprisingly voted for Jordan to win Big Brother 11.

Pandora's Box[edit]

Godderz returned briefly during Big Brother 12 after HOH Britney opened Pandora's Box offering free advice from a past houseguest. The twist was that the free advice was not gameplay advice but fitness advice and the past houseguest was revealed to be Godderz. The two then spent an hour locked inside Pandora's box while the other houseguests were given a luau party in the backyard. He then returned the next season on Big Brother 13 again with a Pandora's Box offering a shopping spree with Tori Spelling. However, Rachel, was locked inside Pandora's Box with Godderz for a shopping spree of "Mr. Pec-tacular" merchandise, while the rest of the house earned the shopping spree with Tori Spelling. Since she was locked in Pandora's Box, Rachel didn't get to meet Tori or get the free clothes. He made another appearance yet again on Big Brother 14 when HOH of the week, Ian opened Pandora's Box. Ian got to spend Christmas Day in Pandora's Box while the other houseguest had to see Godderz came into the house as Secret Santa and replacing all of the HouseGuests' junk food with healthier food.

His appearances made him the only HouseGuest to appear on Big Brother five years in a row.
