Starting on Big Brother 20 (US), Ross and fellow CBB finalist Marissa will be hosting a new post-eviction talk show on Facebook Watch known as "Off the Block with Ross and Marissa," where they will interview every houseguest the day after their eviction, up until finale night, where they would then interview all houseguests of the season, replacing Will Kirby, who had taken over for Jeff Schroeder during Big Brother 19 (US).
Ross also replaced Jeff during the pre-season, as he interviewed the BB20 houseguests on the live feeds.
Ross competed on an episode of The $100,000 Pyramid that aired on September 23, 2018.
Ross and Marissa are the second/third houseguests to make a cameo in one season before being cast in another, following Paulie Calafiore. They were followed by Kato Kaelin.
