Big Brother contestants Dani and Dominic Briones know each other from the house – so when did they meet?
The All-Stars series returned to CBS on Wednesday, August 5th for its 22nd season to date.
From Janelle Pierzina to Cody Calafiore, some of the show’s favourite stars have returned for the post-lockdown series.
Returning to the popular reality programme is Dani Briones who made her first appearance on Big Brother 8. Dani has received backlash from some viewers which led to her husband Dominic Briones deleting his Twitter account.
But despite the online trolling, they are still going strong in their relationship.
When did Dani and Dominic meet?
Dani and Dominic know each other from Big Brother 13. They met and competed on the series back in 2012.
The two became close friends during their time in the house but didn’t become an item until they both left the series. At the time, Dominic was evicted on day 27, while Dani left on day 55 of the game.
Outside of the house, they started dating and got engaged in 2012 before getting married in 2013.
Dani and Dominic had a bohemian-style marriage in Huntington Beach and the two welcomed their daughter Tennessee on August 20th, 2018.

“Life isn’t about winning or losing, about money and what you can get from people, it’s about enjoying the moments, doing what you love, and chasing dreams no matter what the outcome is. You may not have won, but I’m proud of you for shooting your shot and playing your heart out.”
He concluded: “Now come home, daddy needs a damn nap. Your biggest fan. In life and on the show Dom.”
