Jozea was a member of Team Big Sister. He had an overall disdain for the veteran players and wanted to get rid of them right away. However, his mistake of telling his plan to veteran player Da'Vonne as well as Victor telling Jozea's plan to Head of HouseholdNicole led to him being blindsided in the first week by a 7 to 4 vote. He defeated Glenn Garcia in the first round of the Battle Back Competition, but lost to Victor in round two which resulted in his permanent elimination, placing 15th.
Jozea and Jason Roy from Big Brother 17 were announced to be part of a viewer poll to determine which of them would be the final HouseGuest on Big Brother: Over The Top. However, Jason got more votes than Jozea, so Jozea did not enter the house.

Jozea's birth name is Jossie.
Jozea created some controversy on the live feeds by saying that the Fourth of July should not be a holiday. Returning HouseGuest and army veteran James Huling confronted Jozea over his comments. James told him "a lot of Americans died for our freedom," to which Jozea infamously replied back "Ain't nobody told them to do that."
Jozea was ridiculed by fans and his fellow HouseGuests for making a variety of bombastic claims, such as proclaiming that he was a "messiah" for the new players. He also stated that he had connections to host the Grammy Awards after he was done with the show. He was also lambasted for lacking any knowledge of the mechanics of the game, in addition to making remarks about Da'Vonne and Zakiyah that some fans found offensive.
Jozea is the second contestant to not have an interview with Jeff Schroeder after the finale since that trend started. The reason being, he was sent back into sequester for Big Brother: Over The Top, as he was a potential HouseGuest and was only released for finale.
