‘Big Brother 16’ exclusive: Caleb Reynolds on eviction, Amber, ‘Beast Mode Cowboy’ label

Caleb -Whether you loved Caleb or hated him on “Big Brother 16,” there is little questioning that the man was a big character. He told a variety of tall tales, fell crazy in love for a woman who didn’t love him back, and eventually came up with a variety of different nicknames to go along with “Beast Mode Cowboy,” which became almost synonymous with him by the end. (Just don’t look it up on Urban Dictionary.)

Caleb may have been reeling still from the shock of his eviction when answering our email questions today; he went into detail once or twice, and then resorted to yes / no answers at other points.

CarterMatt – How are you feeling now that you are out of the game? Are you proud of how far you went, or disappointed you were eliminated so close to the end?

Caleb Reynolds – I am very proud of myself for making it to the point that I did. It is not often that you see a big competitor with 7 or 8 wins make it to the end. So the fact that I made it to the final 4 with two of my closest friends in the house, I’d say I accomplished a lot this season. But, it does suck a little to get evicted so close to the end. But my motto is: everything happens for a reason.

Looking back, is there anything you think you could have done this week to save yourself, other than win the Power of Veto?


If you had won the final Head of Household, would you have taken Derrick over Cody 100%?


I know you haven’t seen Amber for a while now, but do you still have the same strong feelings for her that you did when she was in the house with you?

Yeah, I miss her.

Finally, let’s talk about ‘Beast Mode Cowboy.’ What’s the origin story of the nickname? Did you come up with it, or did someone else?

Derrick actually gave me that name after my first HOH win on the [spit].
