After a dramatic summer in the “Big Brother” house, reality TV lovebirds Cody Nickson and Jessica Graf are now gearing up to run “The Amazing Race” Season 30. Cody, a former Marine, and Jessica, a VIP waitress, made a name for themselves on “Big Brother” with their constant flirtation and cunning game play. And America fell in love with them. Jessica won the Halting Hex early in the game, while Cody was named America’s Favorite Houseguest during the Season 19 finale.
According to exclusive Gold Derby predictions, Cody & Jessica will come in third place on “The Amazing Race” 30. The showmancers have 11/2 odds to prevail, just behind lifeguards Lucas & Brittany (9/5 odds) and classical musicians Trevor & Chris (4/1 odds). Meanwhile, competitive eaters Joey & Tim are most likely to be sent home first as they have 21/20 elimination odds.

Cody and Jessica are hardly the first “Amazing Race” team to get their start on fellow CBS reality show “Big Brother.” Former couples Jordan Lloyd & Jeff Schroeder and Rachel Reilly & Brendon Villegas also went on to take part in the race. Conversely, “Amazing Race” blind daters Jackie Ibarra & Jeff Weldon later became “Big Brother” houseguests in Season 17, though neither lasted very long.
On “Big Brother” 19, Jessica came in 12th place while Cody came in 11th place. Since Cody was the first member of the jury and had to be sequestered in the jury house, that meant “Jody” didn’t get to reunite until the live “Big Brother” finale.
