Zach Rance was a houseguest on Big Brother 16. He was a part of The Bomb Squad until Devin Shepherd put him on the block, leading Zach to blow up The Bomb Squad. He was a member of The Detonators alliance that formed in the wake of The Bomb Squad, as well as Los Tres Amigos. In week 8, he was betrayed by his closest ally Frankie Grande and backdoored in a unanimous 5-0 vote for giving his alliance the feeling he didn't trust them. As a result of Nicole Franzel returning to the game, he placed 9th, and was the third member of the jury.

On finale night, Zach, along with Nicole and Donny, was revealed to be in the top three to win America's Favorite Houseguest, but lost to Donny.

Zach became quite popular with fans for his zany behavior and seemingly romantic relationship with House Guest Frankie Grande.

In week one, Zach began wearing a pink hat that was actually owned by Victoria Rafaeli. It soon became his trademark. When their friendship turned sour, Victoria took the hat while Zach was napping and cut it up. While in the jury, Zach got his own hat for his birthday.
