David Alexander was a houseguest on Big Brother 21 (US) and Big Brother 22 (US).

In BB21, David was banished by Camp Director, Jackson Michie on the first day of the game and lost the Hit the Road competition resulting in his eviction. When he moved back into the house because of the Camp Comeback twist, David proved to be a strong social player with a good read on the house. He even managed to pull Kathryn Dunn over to his side as a number. However, he lost the Camp Comeback competition and did not get a chance to reenter the game.

BB22 proved to be a better run for David. Despite being nominated as the target alongside fellow BB21 castmate Nicole by HoH Memphis in week 2, he survived eviction. In week 5, he earned the disruptor power, which allowed him to remove himself or anyone from the block following any one of the three next nomination ceremonies. In week 6, he was nominated, but he removed himself from the block by using the power. In week 8, David made a risky decision by taking $10,000 at the PoV competition, despite being nominated, which resulted in him being eliminated first, and caused several of the houseguests to think about evicting him, including a lead to his massive running-feud with Memphis, after his HOH win in Week 7 with a plan to backdoor him, and getting disliked by Dani, and slightly disliked by Cody. However he developed friendships with Tyler, Kevin, Christmas, Da'Vonne, Bayleigh and also retained his friendship with Nicole A. Surviving the previous eviction vote, it seemed that David would outlast some members of The Committee alliance until his enemy Memphis won HOH, which saw almost surviving eviction in a close 3-2 vote over previous winner Nicole F. He placed 8th and became the fourth member of the jury.  


David Alexander Biography

Age: 29
Hometown: Atlanta
Current city: Atlanta
Occupation: Photographer
Three adjectives that describe you: Positive, charismatic, and high energy.
Favorite activities: CrossFit training, professional photography, and traveling to new locations.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house?
A complete shift in my routine and having to be around people with no escape, but it is also an adventure that I would love to explore.
Do you have a strategy for winning the game?
Absolutely! I plan to watch two seasons to get a feel for the show and then further look into strategies that have worked and the type of individuals that typically win. My gift of gab and memory could be an advantage if I play my cards right.
My life's motto is...
JUST LIVE as much as you can before you can't anymore.
What would you take into the house and why?
- My camera because I love photographing in a documentary style. To capture pure moments of joy, happiness, and sadness.
- A device with a music playlist. I heard music calms the savage beast, so this would help those tough moments in the house.
- I would love to bring a habit-building book to jumpstart better discipline before returning to regular civilian life.
Fun facts about yourself:
- I can control my tear ducts (cry on command).
- I went to school with the mega rap group Migos.
- My birthday started a decade (the '90s), and it is always a celebration (Jan. 1, 1990).
- I have perfectly aligned teeth even after my wisdom teeth came in. This is very rare, and I am one of 8-10 percent of the population to have perfect teeth with wisdom and no braces.
- I've never owned an automatic vehicle. I have been keeping it old school with manual transmissions.[1]

Previous season: Big Brother 21. David played a good social game during his short time on the show, but didn't have the whole BB experience because his game was cut short due to a surprise opening night twist.
Three adjectives that describe you: Observant, logical, and compassionate.
Favorite activities: I enjoy functional fitness, photography, hiking, and traveling.
Why do you want to play Big Brother again?
I think we can all learn something from failure. Last year was very tough to have a once in a lifetime opportunity go the way that it did. I'm looking forward to competing in an HOH, to actually voting, and just playing this very interesting social game.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house?
Missing out on the acknowledgement and change that's occurring in American society for African-Americans. Adapting to the stressful social game, constantly being 'on' for extended amounts of time, and manipulating and lying to the other houseguests.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most and why?
From my limited viewing, I would have to say Tyler again. I wasn't a fan of the Level 6 alliance but respect his gameplay and ability to build trust.
What is your strategy for winning the game?
Utilize my multiple competition failure from last season to show myself as a non-threat. Observe the Houseguests for alliances and manipulate others through a smooth social game.
How does this strategy differ from the last time you played?
Very similar strategy as last year except I'm not volunteering for ANYTHING!
Have you changed/evolved since the last time you were on the show?
I've learned how to listen and communicate better since last year. I learned a lot during COVID-19 earlier this year and it's been a game-changer.
What would you take into the house and why?
-Chill music to help during the stressful moments of the game.
-A rig to do pull-ups in the yard.
-A watch to keep track of time.
Fun facts about yourself:
-I was born on New Year's Day.
-I was selected to participate on Season 21 of Big Brother.
-Broke up with my high school sweetheart and we lost "cutest couple" in the senior yearbook.
We eventually got back together, but talk about timing.
-I can cry on command.[2]
