Big Brother Season 9 was filmed in 2008. It was twelve summers ago. This is the first year that Big Brother wasn't able to air during the summer since 2000, due to the Pandemic. Rewatching previous seasons is a good way to cover the down-time. Which season will you watch again?
Season 9 included 16 contestants. Learn more about them below...
Adam Jasinski was a 29 year old Public Relations Manager from Delray Beach Florida when he was crowned the winner of Big Brother Season 9 in 2008. He as awarded with the $500,000 prize.

Another houseguest, Matthew McDonald (pictured below) was also charged for allegedly participating in the drug ring. Allegedly, Adam was sentenced to 4 years for masterminding a prescription drug ring. I don't know about you, but I would have found other was to multiply the $500K, perhaps by making investments?
