Jeffrey Ridgway (born January 22, 1989), mostly known as BigBrudda and referred to as Psycho Brother or JT, is Jesse Ridgway's older brother. He serves as the main protagonist of the BigBrudda Series and the secondary/main antagonist turned deuteragonist of the Psycho Series. He used to have a long rivalry with his brother Jesse that involves a long history of pranks, filming, and destruction. Following the divorce of their parents, the two have reconciled and have developed a better relationship. As of May 2016, Jeffrey has moved to an undisclosed location.
Verging Christmas 2012, Jeffrey decides to humiliate Jesse by filming his father coming back from work to find out that Jesse had been playing Xbox on his TV. On Jesse's 21st birthday, Jeffrey destroyed Jesse's camera in a fit of rage. From then on after his laptop was destroyed by his father on May 26, 2014, Jeffrey became a primary cause for a series of catastrophic events. On February 5, 2015, Jeffrey broke up with his partly antagonistic girlfriend Kate Diogo.
On March 30, 2015, Jesse and Jeffrey put a big plan into action for revenge after their father destroyed the McJuggerNuggets 100,000 subscriber play button by smashing Jeff Sr.'s childhood trophies. This backfires, which leads to having Jesse exiled from The Ridgway Residence. For a few days, Jeffrey and his mother had allowed Jesse to use his laptop to upload vlogs onto YouTube.
BetrayalOn April 7, 2015, Jeffrey finds Jesse raiding the house to get some games for his gaming lair. Jeffrey seizes this chance to betray Jesse and call out his father just before Jesse barely escapes. The next day, Jesse gets a warning shot from his father because of the previous events.
Rise of BigBrudda
On April 12, 2015, Jesse's gaming lair is flattened by his father & is humiliated when Jeffrey gets two views of the destruction on camera. That same day, he creates a YouTube channel and Twitter page. His YouTube channel, BigBrudda gets subscribers right off the bat, making it the fastest growing channel on YouTube, beating Wiz Khalifa.
On April 25, 2015, Jeffrey ambushes Jesse and Larry Abraham - having Jesse finally take residence at Larry's after having his gaming tent flattened - with a paintball gun, but it backfires and vows revenge on the two. A few days later, Jeffrey's channel is hacked by a Juggie purporting to the internet activist group Anonymous, replaced by a video threatening Jeffrey if he does not back off. This lasted for a few days until he regained control of his account.
Jeffrey thought it was Jesse behind this so for revenge, he hooked up the RV that Jesse was staying in and drove it to his house so Jesse would have to confront his father. Jeffrey's plan backfired when Jesse showed his father his trophy smashing video. Jeff Sr. in turn destroyed Jeffrey's camera and Jeffrey silently walked away sulking. He tries to make an effort to anger Jesse during their talk with Dr. Nelson and partially succeeded. He has continued to make videos and skits on his own channel therefore after, despite recording Jeff. Sr's attempt to bury Jesse's video games.
"WEEK OF TERROR"
Jeffrey, after the Kung-Fu Freakout is punished by not going to the Ridgway's North Carolina family trip. As a result of his punishment, in a fit of rage, he starts a "WEEK OF TERROR", which revolved around destroying both Jesse and Larry's items.
The Pitfall Prank
Jesse and Corn set up a prank in which they would get Jeffrey Ridgway Sr. to dig a hole unknowingly for Jeffrey to be pushed into.
The Pink Car Prank
Jeffrey told Jesse he was going to get a new sound system for Jesse's car, however instead of this he had the car spray painted pink. This turned Jesse to a blind rage, yelling at the top of his lunges and to his friends, ordering them to push Jeffrey's motorcycle into the hole, which was previously used to push Jeffrey in.
Jeffrey made a deal with Jesse, which was if he gave back Jesse's XBOX One, he would get to use the room in the Morton building for his Halloween party. Jesse at first objected to this, but eventually gave in. The night of the party was at first going along as planned, however once Jesse dressed as the Joker approached Jeffrey who was dressed as Batman with fireworks, everything spun out of control with their father coming in as the Hulk smashing the tables, drinks and anything he saw, enraged at how Jesse could be so reckless with fireworks near explosives and the fact that the two brothers were always fighting. The two ended up pushing each-other and yelling, with Jeffrey spray painting a penis on the side wall of Jesse's room. The party never ensued.
After the devastating conclusion to the Halloween party, Jeffrey and Corn planned for Jesse to be pranked once more with Jesse being hung up in a net after trying to retrieve his Playstation 4. After this happened, Jeffrey took it a step too far, stomping on Jesse's glasses and cackling like a mad man afterwards, this was the final straw for Jesse, attacking him and fighting him until Corn took over, which would lead to Jesse knocking him out with one of Uncle Larry's bottles.
Picking up where Final Prank left off, Jeffery's unconscious body is taken by Jesse and Corn, and lock him in the dog cage. After regaining consciousness, Jeffery Jr. is shocked that Jesse hit him, explaining that he could've been seriously injured. Remaining silent for hours, Jesse explains that he wants to be on good terms with him and is tired of their fighting, but Jeffery says this is the last straw, and that they'll never be on good terms about this. When Jesse complains of his problems to him and how Jeffery Sr. had been to him, he snaps that Jesse had it easy compared to him, saying that long before Jeffery Sr. went crazy on Jesse, he "tested it" on him, being forced to have a part-time job at twelve years-old and do sports and cross-country in high school, and go to college for accounting, which he hated, saying that he wanted to go to get into what Jesse ended up going to college for: filming. But he was the older one and Jesse was the younger one, so he got all the special attention while he was put through Jeffery Sr.'s hardship, and it wasn't until Jesse graduate college until Jeffery Sr. took his craziness out on Jesse instead of him. Jesse understands what he means that he has had to put up with him too for the past two years, and offers to team up with him and act against their crazy father for everything he's done to them, but Jeffery still remains negative but manages to reconcile with Jesse as well as giving some advice about how to handle their dad a little bit better.
As Jeffrey returns back to the Ridgway residence, he finds that in Jesse's room the furniture has been cleared out, confused, he asks his father where Jesse is, leading him to go down into the basement where he finds Jesse has been imprisoned, revealing a gun (supplied by Zachary Cornatzer), pointing at Jeffrey, forcing him to film the confrontation between him and Jeffrey Ridgway Sr.. After a heated argument, Jesse shoots Jeff Sr. while Jeffrey attempts to stop him, but Jesse proceeds to tell him to back. Before Jesse leaves, Jeff Jr. reminds him that he has five minutes to leave before he will call the police. This is the last time Jeffrey and Jesse see each other, before Jesse flees to Switzerland.
Psycho Kid Vs Psycho Dad
Jeffery is first shown at his new house when his thought to be dead dad showed up. Jeffery is relieved and they debate on where Jesse is. They figure it out and Jeffery brings the camera and films Jesse's beat down and uploads the video titled "PSYCHO DAD THROWS BIG SCREEN TV AT PSYCHO KID". When they return Jeffery complains how he is the only one without super powers he than turns into a werewolf. Jeffery is not shown again until later when his powers wear off and he defends Jesse and tell his dad to back off Jesse then knock his dad out cold.
Jeffrey is generally a mischievous trouble maker who often orchestrates the conflicts between his father and brother. Jeffrey is a cunning masterful planner as demonstrated by his elaborate attempts to prank his brother. Jeffrey is a brilliant manipulator, managing to get Psycho Dad to cause destruction on many occasions. Even getting Jesse's best friend Zachary Cornatzer to assist him when it comes to putting together a good video. Jeffrey generally maintains a cool personality during most videos, often laughing at the events happening around him although he is known to have sudden fits of rage like his father as shown in Psycho Brother's Kung-Fu Freakout.
Jeffrey is shown to be rather cruel at times, such as bullying his younger brother, when he took Jesse's TV as revenge for falsely shattering his YouTube Play Button. Even after getting his button back Jeffrey still destroyed Jesse's TV.
After the events of PRISONER OF WAR! *PSYCHO UPDATE*, Jeffrey started to act completely differently than how he usually was. Most notably is that he became very quiet and miserable. Though it was shown in BIGBRUDDA'S BULLSHIT! and FAN MAIL ANNOUNCEMENT, he seems to go back to his normal self, however less mischievous. He has also not committed any antagonistic acts against anyone, not even Jesse.
From the start of the 2016, he becomes more of a brotherly figure towards Jesse, trying his best to help him during difficult situations, for example when his father took his money, he manages to calm Jesse down. However this didn't stop him from committing a few minor pranks such as during the Haunted Series he secretly stalked Jesse, Corn and Uncle Larry whilst wearing a Guy Fawkes mask.
Jeffrey and Jesse's relationship has greatly improved as of early 2016, Jeffrey used to enjoy watching his younger brother suffer as he was always quick to film his outbursts and laughs when Jesse's things are destroyed. The two had a temporary truce after the events of Psycho Dad Shatters Youtube Play Button when Jeffrey Sr. destroyed their play button. This truce ended quickly afterwards in Psycho Dad Grills Wii U when Jeffrey betrayed Jesse by making him take the fall for destroying the trophies. Following this incident, the Jesse/Jeffrey Jr. rivalry escalated greatly. Jeffrey tried to prank Jesse with a paintball gun, when that failed he destroyed some of his fathers trophies and made Jesse take the blame. After Jesse moved back into the house, the relationship continued as it was previously with Jeffrey taking joy in watching Jesse losing his belongings.
It's implied during PRISONER OF WAR! *PSYCHO UPDATE* that Jeffrey Jr. is jealous of Jesse's achievements that Jeffrey Jr. wanted to achieve and never gotten to due to Jeffrey Sr. and Jesse's upbringing during his childhood not exposed to their father's harsh tactics while growing up (until Jesse graduated from College). Ever since his mom left in Psycho Mom Divorces Husband, Jesse and him have grown a lot closer. It shows that in SPLIT THANKSGIVING *PSYCHO UPDATE* when they hug it out. Also showing in ENEMIES CLOSER, they're getting into an argument about previous events, but have also appear to have repaired their relationship to some degree. Most recently, in SAFE AND UNSOUND! *PSYCHO UPDATE* and CONTROL YOUR ANGER!, Jeffrey Jr. has been attempting to help Jesse in resolving his conflict with Jeffrey Sr., showing that their relationship has improved even further. He had said that, "I want to be the big brother that I never was," and they hug it out when he says, "bring it in."
Jeffrey lately has been attempting to protect Jesse from himself, and has been treating Jesse with respect, while still acting like himself.
Jeffrey's relationship with Jesse would get into a significant downfall in Psycho Kid Kills Father, threatening to call the cops on Jesse for killing Jeffrey Sr.
Jeffrey appears to have a much better relationship with his father compared to Jesse. This is most likely due to the fact that Jeffrey Jr. actually has a real job as an accountant. This relationship is especially apparent as Jeffrey tends to receive little to no punishment from his father whenever he steps out of line (with one example being in Psycho Dad Launches Wii, where he lets Jeffrey get away with destroying Jesse's couch and Larry's Larry's Lounge sign because, in Jeff Sr.'s words, they "provoked him"). However, despite Mr. Ridgway apparently favoring Jeffrey, Jeffrey has no problem with destroying something of his father's to get back at Jesse (as seen in JESSE SMASHES TROPHIES! (Broken Lens Revenge)), to which Jeff Sr. has likewise displayed similar aggression towards (as seen when he discovers Jeffrey's lie in Psycho Dad Reacts to One Million Juggies). In PRISONER OF WAR! *PSYCHO UPDATE*, the true nature of their relationship is revealed in which his father forced him to do things he wanted him to do, including becoming an accountant, which is a job Jeffrey never actually wanted. Years of being raised by Jeffrey Sr. has also given Jeffrey Jr. understanding of his father to keep on his good side, most of the time. There relationship as of early 2016 has degraded slightly, as Jeffrey Jr. has been visibly been on Jesse's side more lately, to Jeffrey Sr.'s obvious dismay.
Theresa and Jeffrey Jr. seem to maintain an okay relationship, as they aren't seen together frequently and don't seem to be particularly close or at odds with each other. She has scolded him on several occasions for his pranks on Jesse (with one example being Psycho Brother's Frozen Lockout), and has also cooperated with him to help bring Jesse supplies he needed during his exile from the Ridgway Residence. However, it is shown that Theresa does care about Jeffrey Jr., just like she cares about Jesse. When confronted by Jesse because he doesn't like the BigBrudda T-Shirts, Theresa states that Jeffrey Jr. is her son as well, and she also became very angry at Jesse for what he did to Jeffrey in the Pitfall Prank. She also states that when Jesse shattered the glass door with the Wii U that he shouldn't have done it because Jeffrey was standing next to the door and could've been hurt by the glass. After his parents separated, Jeffrey liked to see his mother, however after the event's of Theresa living at Melissa's and the the house situation with Jesse, he had not seen his mother for months. They met again in THE DIVORCE PAPERS!
Jeffrey's relationship with Larry was not very stable, as Larry views him as disrespectful and selfish for the pranks he pulls on Jesse (and by extension Larry himself), and his unwillingness to cooperate with him on certain projects (as seen in Psycho Brother's Kung-Fu Freakout). After the events of Kung-Fu Freakout, Larry demands an apology from Jeffrey which enrages Jeffrey as he was expecting an apology from Larry. This led Jeffrey to break into Larry's house in WEEK OF TERROR - DAY 3 UPDATE and steal his Larry's Lounge sign. Jeffrey burned the sign and Jesse's couch later that week. After these events, it likely Jeffrey and Larry's relationship will further deteriorate. However by Stage #3 - The Gamble when Jeffrey reveals his t-shirt design idea and reflects how they used to be much closer during his childhood they seem to have slightly stabilized their relationship.
Jeffrey and Larry now appear to be on good terms with each other. This would later be confirmed in AROUND THE FIRE!, as it is shown that the two are capable of interacting with each other very well and comfortably.
- "That cost me half a fucking grand!"
- ―Jeff Jr.
There has been little interaction between Jeffrey and Jesse's girlfriend. They have been seen talking and being around each other some time. Jeffrey has, however, shown an unwillingness to prank her, showing that he has some dignity. She has, however, been involved in a prank against Jeffrey.
Melissa and Jeffrey Jr's relationship hasn't developed much other than the fact that she creeps him out with the constant touching and calling him "a hottie with muscles."
In PERSUADING MOM, he purposely avoids Melissa because she creeps him out and even has Georgie Stahlberger create a diversion so that Jeff Jr. can sneak out of the house without Melissa knowing.
- Batman on his upper left shoulder, formerly a tribal tattoo.
- Family emblem on his forearm.
- Emblem on the right side of his chest of a sun with his maternal grandfathers face in the center.
- Tattoo under his right arm for his friend who passed away.
