Zingbot 3000 is a robot visitor that is featured on the American version of the television show Big Brother,[1] which airs on CBS.

The robot, which is actually a human in a robot costume, is a form of comic relief and offers one line insults ("zingers") to each of the house guests in an annoying, mechanical sounding voice.[2] Each insult is followed by the comment, "Zing!", which has entered the popular lexicon, particularly within the house.

Appearances[edit]

Zingbot 3000 made its first appearance on Big Brother 12 during one of the Power of Veto competitions. During Big Brother 13, its appearance coincided with a veto competition where the house guests raced to build the "Bride of Zingbot;" in Big Brother 14, the theme was to build a Zingbot baby during one of the veto competitions. The Zingbot 3000 also made a cameo appearance at the Big Brother 12 season finale. Zingbot 3000 attended Comic Con in 2011. Zingbot is scheduled to make a return on August 28th, 2013 during Big Brother 15.
