Who Is Brian Benni? What to Know About the Winter House Season 3 Cast Member

After spending three seasons of Family Karma in Miami, Brian is ready to take on Steamboat Springs.

By Casey Suglia

Brian Benni is trading the sunny skies of Florida for the much colder climate of Steamboat Springs, Colorado in Season 3 of Winter House. The Family Karma cast member is normally seen traipsing around south Florida with his close friends while wanting to find "the one" and settle down.

How to Watch

Watch Winter House on Peacock and the Bravo app.

But, boundless possibilities await him in Colorado, where he will be interacting with Bravolebrities from five different shows as they live together under one roof in the cold, cozy environment. Who knows? This could finally be the successful combination to bring Brian the love that he has been waiting for — or rather, the love that his parents have been waiting for him to finally have.

Those who aren't familiar with Family Karma or who need to know more about the 31-year-old Florida native should read on, because this is (pretty much) everything that you need to know about Brian Benni while watching Winter House Season 3.

Who is Brian Benni of Family Karma?

Brian has been a cast member on the Bravo reality show, Family Karma, for the past three seasons. In case you haven't seen the show, per its description, it is "an intimate look at seven Indian-American friends navigating life, love, and careers, while balancing the cultural traditions and expectations of their traditional parents and grandparents."

In the first episode of Season 1, Brian is referred to as a "player" by his friends, but constantly facied pressure from his parents (with whom he lives) to find a wife, move out of their family home, and give them grandkids. Too bad he can't find the right person for him.

Who has Brian Benni dated on Family Karma?

Over the past three seasons, viewers have watched as Brian has entered into relationships, exited them, and flirted with his best friend, Monica Vaswani, all while avoiding the question whether or not they would actually ever date.

While Monica ended up putting up Brian in the friend zone at the end of Season 1, by the start of Season 2, Brian was in a relationship with another Monica, Dr. Monica Shah. According to him, was the longest relationship that he has ever been in. But, the couple faced challenges, like living in different cities and having different demanding jobs.

During a July 2021 appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Brian confirmed the status of his relationship, proclaiming that he was single. "We tried to get through all of the ups and downs and, in February 2021, I broke up with her," Brian told the show's host, Andy Cohen. "It is what it is, and yeah, now I'm single."

What does Brian Benni do for work?

In Season 1 of Family Karma, Brian — who graduated from Florida State University — worked in IT and liked the things that it affords, like a brand new BMW. Brian's career path in technology has continued to grow since then. He is currently the Emerging Enterprise Account Executive for UiPath, according to LinkedIn.

UiPath, according to Brian's LinkedIn, "streamlines processes, uncovers efficiencies and provides insights, making the path to digital transformation fast and cost-effective. It leverages existing systems to minimize disruption."

It also allows for him to take a little vacation and appear on Winter House, which is a nice perk, too.

What does Brian Benni do for fun

When he isn't filming Family Karma or appearing on Winter House, Brian is very much enjoying his life. Brian's Instagram account shows that he still hangs out with his close friends and Family Karma cast members off screen, has adopted the most adorable dog, and enjoys playing pranks on his family members.

And even when he isn't playing pranks on them, Brian is still as close as ever with his family, including his mom, Dharma, his dad, Raj, and his brother Nick Benni.

What happens to Brian Benni on Season 3 of Winter House?

On this season of Winter House, Brian is looking for a cuddle buddy. 

Per Brian's cast profile for Winter House Season 3: "Feeling the steady pressure from his parents, Brian Benni is ready to meet 'the one' and settle down. In the hopes of living out his very own rom-com in a winter wonderland, Brian casts a wide net, but his unique way of flirting doesn't seem immediately reciprocated by the women in the house. Will he be able to find the girl of his dreams to keep him warm?" 

Fingers crossed.

What the Season 3 trailer (which you can watch at the top of this post) does show is Brian up to some pretty fun antics that could only happen on vacation with a bunch of strangers. In one scene, Brian can be seen wearing a tank top and captain's hat in the snow while gathering snow balls and shouting "That's how we do it in Miami." Hilarious.

In another, Brian shows off the clothes that his mom got for him, while Summer House's Danielle Olivera pushes them to the side and tells him "don't bring your mom into this."

Brian Benni will be on Season 3 of Winter House.

You can see Brian and the rest of the Winter House Season 3 cast members when new episodes of Winter House air on Bravo every Tuesday at 9/8c. New episodes stream the next day on Peacock
