James Allen Rhine was a houseguest on Big Brother 6 who returned to the house in Big Brother 7.

In BB6, James was known for being Sarah Hrejsa's partner, a member of the Sovereign Six, being betrayed by them in Week 5, and winning 4 PoV's which was the record for most PoV wins at the time. He was ultimately backdoored in Week 8 by a unanimous 4-0 vote, placing 7th and becoming the third member of the jury.

In BB7, he was a part of the Sovereign Six again, but after Janelle's decision not to nominate Chilltown member Will Kirby during Week 4, James betrayed the alliance and became a part of The Legion of Doom along with Will, Mike Malin and his closest ally Danielle Reyes. He was nominated during the first half of the Double Eviction but managed to save himself by winning the PoV. He was nominated and evicted during the second round of the double eviction in a 3 to 1 vote. Once again he placed 7th and was the third member of the jury.

James formerly held the record for the most Power of Veto wins with 4 in Big Brother 6, but the record would be broken by his Sovereign Six ally Janelle Pierzina the following season in Big Brother 7 (US) who won 5 Power of Veto competitions.

Trivia

  • James originally had a different partner for Big Brother 6 (US), however he backed out last minute, so James chose Sarah Hrejsa as the replacement, which likely explains the imbalance between men and women in the season.
  • James and Sarah Hrejsa are the first pair of houseguests to be dating when entering the house. They would later be followed by Jen Diturno and Ryan Quicksall.
    • Of the four, James is the only one to be on the jury and the only one to return for another season.
  • James is the only male to win a Power of Veto competition in Big Brother 6.
  • James is the first houseguest to win 3 POV's in a single season and later, the first houseguest to win 4 POV's in a single season.
  • James is tied with Shane Meaney, John McGuire and Jackson Michie for the second most POV wins out of any male houseguest in one season with 4. While Paul Abrahamian has the most POV wins in one season with 5.
    • He is the only one among the four that did not end up in the Final 4 of his season.
  • James is the first houseguest to be taken off the block with the POV three times in a row.
  • James voted in the minority the most in Big Brother 6, doing so four times.
  • James, alongside fellow Season 6 players Howie Gordon, Janelle Pierzina, and Kaysar Ridha are the first houseguests to play in back-to-back seasons. They would be followed by Jessie Godderz, Brendon Villegas, Rachel Reilly, James Huling, Da'Vonne Rogers, Paul Abrahamian, David Alexander, and Nicole Anthony.
  • James is the first of four returning players to win their first Head of Household on their second season. He would be followed by George Allen Boswell, Memphis Garrett, and Enzo Palumbo.
  • James is one of four people (Janelle Pierzina, Kaysar Ridha, and Paul Abrahamian) to finish in the same placement two seasons in a row (7th place).
  • James is the only contestant to have an eviction vote against them nullified after it had already been cast. In future seasons, contestants who had lost their ability to vote for the week never got to cast one.
