About Him

Overview… certified magician and all-around “boss.” At least, so claims this Treblemaker – i.e., a member of Barden University’s all-male a capella group. To be honest, Benji is a bit of fanboy, although he insists: “I’m not a total nerd.” Nevertheless, the freshman is a talented performer when finally given the chance. He’s good friends with fellow Treblemaker Jesse and likeable to most (minus former Treblemaker leader Bumper) in spite of, or perhaps because of, his quirks.

Personality… awkward, earnest, and enthusiastic. When Benji really likes something or somebody, he shows it. Unfortunately, he can go overboard with his effusiveness. Consequently, his sophomore year courtship of the similarly awkward Emily Junk, a Barden freshman and a legacy of the Treblemakers’ all-female counterpart the Barden Bellas, is a sight to behold. Benji usually has a few tricks up his sleeve for the ladies, but alas they are literally magic tricks.
