Big Brother Wiki

Adam David Poch was a houseguest on Big Brother 13 (US).

His duo partner was Dominic Briones. His second duo partner was Shelly Moore. Adam was viewed as a floater for the majority of the game, though his strategy was successful as he made it all the way to the final three. Adam was criticized by fellow player Daniele Donato for playing the game "for Jeff and Jordan". He finished in 3rd place and became the seventh and final member of the jury after Rachel Reilly cast the sole vote to evict him.
