Jacob's "soulmate" in the house was Sharon Obermueller. Jacob and Sharon were the first couple evicted from the house by the first Power Couple in Big Brother history, Jen Diturno and Parker Somerville. However, Sharon was selected by Joshuah Welch to come back into the game over Jacob after his soulmate Neil Garcia walked, so Jacob finished in 16th place.
