Jason Tyler Roy[2] is the runner-up of Big Brother: Over The Top, who previously competed in Big Brother 17.

In BB17, Jason was known for his sassy personality, his sense of humor, and his tendency to spread things throughout the house. His best friend in the house was Da'Vonne Rogers, and they both were members of The High Rollers alliance. Throughout the season, Jason was a very strong competitior, winning 1 HoH and 2 BotB competitions within the first three weeks. During Week 5, he was backdoored by Vanessa and went out earlier than many had hoped. His big mouth made him an instant target to The Sixth Sense alliance, who blindsided him, which resulted in his eviction by a vote of 7-2. He placed 13th. His eviction caused the power couple Clelli to be evicted during the following two weeks after his eviction. On finale night, Jason, along with John and James, was revealed to be in the top three to win America's Favorite HouseGuest, but he lost to James.

On finale night of Big Brother 18, Julie announced that Jason was eligible to be the final houseguest in Big Brother: Over The Top, along with Season 18 houseguest Jozea Flores. Jason ended up receiving the most votes, so he got to re-enter the house. After entering, he was immediately targeted by the rest of the players. In week 1, HoH Monte Massongill made him the target. However, he managed to survive by winning the veto. After that, the target came off his back and he joined the Late Night Jamboree. Throughout the season he was known for his rivalry with Shelby Stockton. He was also a competition threat, winning 2 HoHs and 3 PoVs. His strong strategic play and competition wins allowed him to make it to the end. However, his rude and vulgar comments about several members of The Ballsmashers alliance, particularly Shelby, ultimately cost him the win against Morgan Willett.


Big Brother 17

Birthday: August 13, 1989

Jason may be short and skinny, but this Massachusetts boy has got a big mouth on him. Never one to shy away from conflict, Jason admits he's not easily intimidated. As a child, Jason was always picked last for team sports but would then surprise his classmates with his unwavering determination and shocking speed. Still living at home with his mother, Jason has always got along better with women and plans on having an all-female alliance upon entering the Big Brother house. He thinks the strong men should be targeted immediately and winning challenges will be a crucial part of his strategy. Jason wouldn't be caught dead lounging around the Big Brother house in his pajamas all day; he's got too much style and sass for that.
