Big Brother 2014 cast member Zach Rance is quite the character. He looks like a dirty stoner in half his photos, and a clean cut attractive guy in the other half. He obviously adores his little brother and sometimes seem more like his younger bro’s age than his own. On the other hand, he’s a graduate of the University of Florida with an Economics degree. So he’s a strange mix of kid and grown-up, silly and serious. We kind of like it.

Zach did not take down his Facebook page before going on Big Brother 16, which means we got to see a lot of who he is before the cameras turn on. He seems like a relatively normal guy with perhaps a bit of a quirky sense of humor. He’s obviously got some growing up to do, as we can see from his enjoyment of beer bong photos and possible infatuation with the word ‘swag’. Overall, however, we think he could be a fun guy to watch.

More on Zach Rance:

Before coming on Big Brother 16, Zach mostly seemed to be sporting a pretty long haircut until recently. We aren’t quite sure when he cut it, but we’re guessing CBS probably would have asked him if he hadn’t. Otherwise he would probably kind of remind people of McCrae from last season.

Zach grabbed his degree in Economics, but says on his Facebook wall that he is “never going back to school. F**k that sh* I’m over it.” In fact, he said shortly before graduating that he still hadn’t actually learned anything from being there. Oh, and he loves Thai food. In particular, Talay Thai Cuisine.

We’re still wondering what Zach meant when he posted back in 2012 the simple status update that “My President is black.” Was it just a simple observation, something that pleased him, or a statement of disappointment?

Our Thoughts on Zach Rance:

Zach doesn’t have much of a strategy going into the Big Brother house and that might not be a bad thing. With all of the crazy twists this season, keeping it loose and adapting as you go along may be the best way to go. He does hope to make all the other Houseguests love him.

We don’t know about that, but from watching his pre-season interviews, we think he might be able to put together a posse of like-minded folks for an alliance. We think he could get in a strong group and coast along to midway or even late in the game. Heck, he could even be a sneak attack winner in the making. Especially since he is not looking to use a showmance as a strategy move, even if he is single. Although he did say he would not totally rule one out.
