Who’s got gigantic muscles, a killer smile, and an adorable baby girl? That would be none other than Big Brother 16 contestant Devin Shepherd. If anyone is well-rounded this season, it’s definitely this guy. Read on to learn more about the 26-year-old former Minor League Baseball player!

Devin, who was born in California and currently resides in Texas, used to play for the minor league team associated with the St. Louis Cardinals. Unfortunately, Devin’s athletic career came to a halt when he quit so that he could take care of his adorable daughter. Now the 6-foot-3 stud can be found working as a sales manager for Harley Davidson, so he’s kind of a biker dude.

How will this well-built guy master the Big Brother game and walk away with the $500K grand prize, you ask? “It’s all about making friends and not enemies at all cost,” Devin said in his CBS bio. “Not everyone will like you, but you have to try to bond with your housemates to build trust. Also, you have to rule very politically if you’re at the top so it may be beneficial to lay low in the weeds until the final five.” Not too shabby of a plan, if you ask us!


Devin is admittedly afraid of rats — and we’d imagine this all-American guy means both the animal as well as sneaky people. That being said, he is a total gym rat, which is how his muscles are so big! We suspect he’ll be out in the backyard all summer pumping iron and will emerge as a superhero who could go head-to-head against The Hulk and emerge victorious.

This guy will definitely dominate the physical challenges and stands a good chance to win even some of the mental ones. Hopefully his great social game and ability to take his housemates down in a fight will help him bring home the bacon at the end of the summer.

If you haven’t swooned yet, get ready to. When asked what three things he would take in the Big Brother house, Devin said: a shaver, a toothbrush, and a photograph of his daughter. There you have it, folks.
