The Zingbot 3000 first appeared when he visited the Big Brother 12 house. He is a huge robot that emerged from the Diary Room and hosted a Power of Veto competition. It continuously insulted or 'zinged' each of the houseguests as well as flick houseguests in the nipple, which is called 'zinging' them in the boob. He did not flick Dick in the boobs because he did not want him to get the wrong idea that he was going to kiss him. The Zingbot 3000 also made a cameo appearance at the Big Brother 12 season finale. He also appeared in Big Brother 13, Big Brother 14, and Big Brother 15 to host Veto competitons. There is also the Bride of Zingbot created in Big Brother 13 and Baby Zingbot created in Big Brother 14, Baby Zingbot returned in Big Brother 15 for its first birthday. In Big Brother 16, Zingbot 3000 returned to the house, but only to compliment houseguests and give them 'props'. Kathy Griffin then entered the house to zing 4 of the houseguests, and hosted the veto competition. Zingbot 3000 was fixed, and proceeded to zing the remaining houseguests. Many had sore boobs afterwards.
