Jessie Godderz (April 23, 1986) also known as Mr. Pec-Tacular is an American actor and professional wrestler previously signed to Impact Wrestling. He is a former two-time TNA World Tag Team Champion with Robbie E as The BroMans. Also, Godderz trained in TNA's developmental territory Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), where he is a five-time OVW Southern Tag Team Champion. He has also appeared as a contestant on two seasons of the reality competition program Big Brother.
Godderz was born in Rudd, Iowa. When he was 19 years old, he worked as a conductor for the Union Pacific Railroad. He eventually became a professional bodybuilder with the World Natural Body Building Federation.
In the summer of 2008, Godderz appeared as a contestant in the 10th season of Big Brother. During week 1, Head of Household Jerry nominated Godderz and fellow contestant Renny for elimination. He, however, won the Power of Veto and was able to remove himself from the chopping block. In week 2, Godderz won the Head of Household competition and nominated Steven and Dan for elimination. He was again nominated for elimination in week 3, but survived the eviction. Godderz was eliminated in week 4 by a 4–3 vote after he was nominated for elimination by April with fellow contestant Memphis. He returned to the house for one day only on Day 60 as part of a luxury competition.
The following summer, Godderz returned to Big Brother for the 11th season. The twist for the season was that the HouseGuests would be split into four cliques. During the first Head of Household competition on the premier episode, Godderz entered the house after his clique, the athletes, won the competition. Godderz was therefore named the first Head of Household of the season. On Day 19, Godderz once again became Head of Household. On Day 40, Jeff exercised the power of Coup d'État and named Godderz and fellow contestant Natalie as the nominees up for eviction. He was evicted on Day 40 by a vote of 3–2, becoming the first member of the Jury—a group of former HouseGuests that decide the winner of the competition.
Godderz returned during three other seasons as a part of the Pandora's Box twist. During Big Brother 12, he offered Head of Household Britney fitness advice after she opened the box.
During Big Brother 13, Pandora's Box offered the HouseGuests a shopping spree with Tori Spelling. However, Rachel the Head of Household, was locked inside Pandora's Box with Godderz for a shopping spree of "Mr. Pec-tacular" merchandise, while the rest of the house earned the shopping spree with Spelling.
He made another appearance on Big Brother 14 when Head of Household Ian opened Pandora's Box. As a result, Godderz came into the house as Secret Santa and replaced all of the HouseGuests' junk food with healthier food.
He made another appearance on Big Brother 17 to host the Veto Competition "Bowlerina".
He made another appearance on Big Brother 18 to host the Luxury Competition "Dunk a Hunk".
