Below is a list of 5 facts Reality TV World has compiled about Steve Arienta:

- Steve does not have a strategy for Big Brother, because he believes anyone with a set strategy on Day 1 is destined for failure.

Due to unexpected twists and turns, he thinks it's difficult to create a plan without knowing the players involved.

- His favorite activities are motorcycle riding, fishing, and playing golf.

- Steve is definitely a family man. If he could take any three items into the Big Brother house with him, he would choose a family picture to see his family, his wedding ring to think about his wife, and a cell phone to call his family.

- Steve was state wrestling champion in high school, and he also earned a football scholarship to Northwestern University.

- After college, Steve put his muscle to use in the NYPD and became a lead in their OCID (Organized Crime Investigation Division).
