Jameka is best known for her rivalry with Dick Donato, being vocal about her faith, and being a member of the Late Night Crew Alliance. Jameka was a Christian and also believed that during Week 4, if her ball was drawn to play in the Power of Veto, then she was meant to use the Veto on whoever had chosen it. She was known for giving up eligibility to play five consecutive HOH competitions in a Veto competition. Jameka had close friendships with Amber and Dustin. When her ally Dustin was evicted in Week 6, Jameka and Amber were both blindsided by his eviction and feared they'd be the next targets. The two managed to survive one more eviction until Amber was evicted. She was nominated three times in a row after Amber was evicted, and managed to survive. In Week 10, she was the replacement when Daniele decided to take Evel Dick off the block. She was evicted by the sole vote of Dick after he was vetoed by Daniele. She placed fourth and became the sixth member of the jury.
Jameka is the first, and currently the only, houseguest to give up her rights to compete in multiple Head of Household competitions. Despite doing this, however, she survived all five weeks and made it into the Final Four.
Jameka is tied with Daniele and Jen for the most nominations in Big Brother 8, with 4.
