James Zinkand was a HouseGuest on Big Brother 9. After he was successfully backdoored during Week 4, James was voted back into the game only minutes after leaving the house. He was the first male player since Kaysar Ridha to be voted back into the game. However, like Amy Crews, James was voted back in by his fellow HouseGuests. The vote was between him and fellow HouseGuest Alex Coladonato (whose identity was a mystery to the other HouseGuests).

James became a huge threat upon his return, winning one Head of Household competition and three consecutive Power of Veto competitions. He ultimately placed sixth, becoming the fourth member of the Jury. James won the $25,000 America's Choice Jury Prize at the end of the season.

James's "soulmate" in the game's twist was Chelsia Hart. Although they were attracted to each other early in the game, they eventually had a falling-out.

Single
Riding Bicycle around the World
Sarasota, FL

James, a high school graduate, is currently on a mission to ride his bicycle halfway around the world with no money in his pocket. He has also lived in Buenos Aires where he dressed mannequins for a living.

He describes himself as insane and crazy and has a few very different personalities, depending on his mood. He grew up in a broken home and had to learn to be different to get the attention he needed from others. He was the "freak" in high school who wore costumes to school when it wasn't Halloween. He is close with his mom and has one sister, both recently divorced.

His favorite movie is "Fight Club" and his favorite music is by The Clash. James has seven tattoos. He is currently single, but was engaged to an older woman at one point. His birth date is November 21, 1986.[1]
