Amanda Zuckerman was a part of the Big Brother 15 cast that played the game in the Summer of 2013.
Sixteen houseguests took part in that season, with Andy Herren emerging as the Big Brother 15 winner.
Amanda finished in seventh place, putting her on the BB15 jury and giving her a vote on finale night. Her vote went to Andy, who beat out GinaMarie Zimmerman for the $500,000 prize.
Since her time in the Big Brother house, Amanda has gotten married to Mike Zachman and has had two children. Ford Alexander Zachman, their second child, was born in May 2021.
This past winter, Amanda had a vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG), which is a surgery to reduce the size of the stomach. Since then, she has kept her followers in the loop on her weight loss and just provided a new update.
