Alex was the "soulmate" of Amanda Hansen, and they were evicted by a unanimous 3-0 vote in Week 2. Later, Alex was voted by America to be the "Mystery Houseguest" and was able to return to the game if a majority of the houseguests voted for him over James Zinkand. Alex only received three of the eight votes needed to return to the game, losing to James. Both Alex and Amanda finished in 12th place.
