Mark Jansen is still in the running for the $500,000 grand prize on Big Brother's nineteenth season. Mark is a 26-year-old personal trainer from Grand Island, NY, who has a tough-guy persona yet considers himself a teddy bear. Mark has managed to dodge bullets so far in the Big Brother game because he has yet to become a target although he continues to turn his back on alliance members and betray them. Mark ditched Cody Nickson when the U.S. Marine needed him most, and he also voted his pal Dominique Cooper out of the house in order to save himself. More recently, Mark also got into an argument with Josh Martinez over a silly round of pool. However, Mark is loyal to his showmance partner Elena Davies and seems to be holding strong in his alliance with Paul Abrahamian, Matt Clines and Raven Walton.
