Julio entered the house with his real life girlfriend, Aly. Together they both managed to hide their secret from the other houseguests for the first few weeks, although a few houseguests had suspicions. All attempts to fly under the radar were thrown out the window when Julia won the first Badge Battle and granted Julio immunity alongside her, sparking rumors of them knowing each other or working together. When Nicolas won the Head of Household competition during Week 2, he nominated Julia and Julio. Once Julia won the Veto and saved herself, Corey was nominated as the replacement nominee as well as the target. When the votes flipped against Julio, he was voted out by a vote of 6 to 5. Julio was in pre-jury for four weeks and in that time, figured out that Renee had flipped her vote on him and he came back for vengeance when he won the Buyback Competition. Entering the house with immunity, Julio aligned with Aly as well as the underdogs in the house and helped to evict Connor during the Double Eviction. Julio and Aly put all of their trust into their Fruit Basket alliance with Corey and Andie but were betrayed when Andie nominated Julio and then named Aly as a replacement nominee, leading to Julio's unanimous 4 to 0 vote. At the jury round table, Julio tried his best to flip votes for Aly to win the game, but was unsuccessful.
