Big Brother fans who watched season 19 of the reality TV show surely remember Cody Nickson and Jessica Graf, who quickly coupled up in the house. Here’s what happened between Jessica and Cody on the show and where they are now.
‘Big Brother’ stars Cody Nickson and Jessica Graf went on to win ‘The Amazing Race’
Jessica Graf and Cody Nickson made their reality TV debut on Big Brother season 19, which aired in 2017. Cody, a former US Marine, dominated early competitions, placing a target on his back. He was evicted on week 3, only to immediately battle his way back into the house through a series of competitions against other previously eliminated houseguests. Jessica was eliminated in week 6, and Cody was eliminated for good in week 7.
Although they were eliminated back to back, the timing meant Cody had to stay in the jury house without Jessica for the rest of the season. He cast the deciding vote for Josh Martinez to win the season, ensuring Josh defeated Cody’s greatest enemy in the house, Paul Abrahamian. Cody was voted America’s Favorite Houseguest and won $25,000.
After Big Brother, Jessica and Cody competed in season 30 of The Amazing Race, which aired in 2018. They won the season and the $1 million grand prize, making them the first team previously cast on Big Brother to win The Amazing Race.
