Adam Jasinski should be used to being under constant surveillance 24 hours a day so prison might not be that big of an adjustment.

The former "Big Brother 9" winner was sentenced to four years in prison Friday for using his winnings on the reality show to become a drug dealer.

The Delray Beach resident won $500,000 from the CBS reality show in 2008, but was promptly busted in 2009 when he tried to sell 2,000 oxycodone pills in a drug deal in Boston. Unfortunately, the buyers were actors of a sort - undercover cops.

Jasinski had faced 14 years, but has been cooperating with authorities.

He was also found guilty of tax evasion because he never paid the government its fair share of the "Big Brother" prize.

Let's hope Jasinski gets along better with his new housemates this time around.
