In BB6, James was known for being Sarah Hrejsa's partner, a member of the Sovereign Six, being betrayed by them in Week 5, and winning 4 PoV's which was the record for most PoV wins at the time. He was ultimately backdoored in Week 8 by a unanimous 4-0 vote, placing 7th and becoming the third member of the jury.
In BB7, he was apart of the sovereign Six again, but after Janelle's decision not to nominate Chilltown member Will Kirby during Week 4, James betrayed the alliance and became a part of The Legion of Doom along with Will, Mike "Boogie" Malin and his closest ally Danielle Reyes. He was nominated during the first half of the Double Eviction, but managed to save himself by winning the PoV. He was nominated and evicted during the second round of the double eviction in a 3 to 1 vote. Once again he placed 7th and was the third member of the jury.
