One-half of the dangerous duo known as The Hitmen from Big Brother season 16, Cody Calafiore is a tightly focused Big Brother player. He’ll verbalize his gameplay, then execute it perfectly, but he’ll never be the wildest guy in the BB house. That’s probably why he joined up with the extremely extra Frankie Grande on Big Brother Reindeer Games. With the women, especially Taylor Hale, aware of Cody’s threat level he’ll need a wingman to watch his back. Cody is also known for maintaining good relationships with his housemates and has never had a high-profile rivalry. All of these attributes make him an odds-on favorite to see his Christmas wish realized. But in between his two seasons on the show and now, what happened to Cody Calafiore?

A proud resident of Hackensack, NJ, Cody has had a few high profile modelling jobs since competing in season 16. He is represented by Soul Artist Management, and has done work for magazines including Men’s Fitness and LOVE Magazine. He’s been featured a few times in Seventeen magazine as part of their Hot Guy Panel. Cody has done some runway work for designers Malan Breton and Ricardo Seco. Today, however, he works as a realtor for Keller Williams Realty, and hosts a podcast with his Hitmen partner Derek Levasseur. “The Winner’s Circle” is primarily dedicated to Big Brother analysis, and both members are season winners. Derek won season 16 while Cody was the runner-up, and Cody returned on the All-Star season 22 and won.
Cody is a former soccer player and has played for the Temple Owls team in Philadelphia for two years. He tried out at the professional level for the Columbus Crew, but had to end his career because of an ankle injury. However, he has made a return to the pitch recently playing with Kingdom FC. Cody will be celebrating his birthday in the Reindeer Games house this year, because he turns age 33 on December 13. This makes Cody an emotionally intelligent and born leader Sagittarius. Cody is primarily found on Instagram online, with an outstanding 424,000 followers. In October of last year, Cody proposed to his longtime girlfriend Cristie Laratta. The two dated for seven years before deciding to tie the knot.
What Happened To Cody Calafiore? Family & Social Media
Cody maintains a Facebook profile and a Twitter/X profile. He’s also a promoter of 1stphorm vitamins and supplements. We know that he has two siblings. Older brother Paulie, who has also competed on Big Brother season 18, and is an actor and producer. Younger sister Angelina maintains a much lower profile, but has been connected to fitness guru Shaun T. Paulie shares his name with his father and his sadly deceased grandfather, Paulie Sr., who passed in 2020.
We also know that Cody’s reality time has not been limited to Big Brother, as he competed on The Traitors and opened up about how grueling it was. He clashed with Cirie Fields, saying, “‘She wants to get her way. This is her way of trying to do it.’ I was like, ‘OK, you can have this one.’ But at that point, I was like, ‘I’m done. I don’t wanna work with either of you.”’
Unfortunately, Cody got jingle bell rocked in Episode 2 of Big Brother Reindeer Games. If he can go down this early, it’s anyone’s game.
