America’s Big Brother 9: Till Death Do Us Part has only been on air a few weeks, but already the hope for the first ever gay “showmance” seems to have been dashed.

Sexy Neil Garcia was forced to leave the show-and his partner Joshuah Welch because of still unnamed personal reasons outside of the house.

However, there may still be a possibility of a gay hook up on the show, as it was recently revealed house mate James Zinkand is an ex-stripper who has appeared in several gay adult videos.

Zinkand entered the house as a straight man looking for love in the special matchmakers addition of Big Brother, but earlier this week Dirtyboyvideo.com revealed Zinkland’s gay porn past when it began promoting videos of him on its home page.

The videos are being promoted with the tagline: “If you’ve tuned into CBS’s Big Brother 9 this season then you’re already familiar with ‘Crazy James’. This sexy, tattooed mega-hottie was smoking up our screens long before his TV debut! He biked across the nation straight to our doors and straight into the asses and mouths of a few of the lucky boys in our porn stable!”

Sporting a mohawk in the videos, James appears with several other male partners, an interesting contrast to his profile on the CBS saying he is a single straight man who was recently engaged to an older woman.

CBS and Endemol Productions, who do extensive background checks on participants, have so far made no statements about the contestant’s interesting past.

As for Garcia, there has still been no official reason given why he left the game. Garcia thanked viewers for their support on his website, but has revealed no further details about his sudden departure.

Gay or not, James Zinkand has already caused quite a stir in the house, and this most recent bit of information will no doubt foster further intrigue about Big Brother’s special winter edition.
