Zachary "Zach" Joseph Swerdzewski was a houseguest on Big Brother 8.

Zach was a member of the ill-fated Mrs. Robinson Alliance which crumbled early on. By the end of Week 5, he was the only member of his alliance left. Despite being alone for most of the second half of the season, he wasn't a target. He placed 3rd and became the seventh and final member of the jury after Dick Donato cast the sole vote to evict him.


Zachary Joseph Swerdzewski (born April 17, 1977) is a graphic designer from Tallahassee, Florida. Zach graduated from Florida State University, where he was a member of the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity. He owns a company called Dolphin Crash.
