Adam Jasinski was the winner of Big Brother 9.
His "soulmate" in the game he was partnered with was Sheila Kennedy. Adam was a controversial figure; for example, he made disparaging remarks about disabled children during the first competition of the game. Nevertheless, Adam defeated his ally Ryan Quicksall by a jury vote of 6 to 1, winning the $500,000 grand prize. Adam was a member of the Team Christ alliance and remained in the game by being a fun and friendly guy whom everyone nicknamed "A-Baller."
