Hometown: Las Vegas
Current City: Las Vegas
Occupation: Professional poker player
Vanessa is the No. 2 female poker player in the world when it comes to online and live tournaments. She’s been pro for the past 10 years and has won $4.5 million dollars since she began. She’s a tomboy who has always been extremely competitive, whether it’s playing lacrosse in high school or beating men and women all over the world at the poker table. Being in a male-dominated industry, Vanessa isn’t easily intimidated and is used to keeping her emotions in check, which will help her keep her eye on the prize. She’s perfected the art of bluffing and knows that she can manipulate her Houseguests however she sees fit while living in the Big Brother house.
My Take: Well, we had the poker dealer, and now we have the poker player. It should be interesting how Vanessa handles her occupation because I’m sure a poker player will be an instant threat. If Da’Vonne happens to recognize her, she won’t have a choice to reveal.
