PostSubject: Vanessa Rousso   June 16th 2015, 9:33 am



Age: 32
Hometown: Las Vegas
Current City: Las Vegas
Occupation: Professional poker player
Three adjectives that describe you: Eclectic, maverick, and adaptable.
Favorite Activities: Making music, listening to music, DJing, going to the drive-in movie theater, working out, playing strategy games, solving riddles, traveling and exploring, people-watching, anything on the water, learning something new, training my dogs (they each know over 20 commands), hiking, fine dining, hanging out at home with my beautiful girlfriend, watching Netflix, throwing parties, imitating accents, dancing, meeting new people, road trips, camping, sky diving, photography, and more!
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: Not being able to communicate with my girlfriend will definitely be the toughest part of the entire experience. We are very, very close and I rely on her as a teammate in life. I know I will miss her terribly. Also, not being able to use a computer to produce music or be able to browse the net will be insanely difficult since I'm definitely spoiled by the Internet and modern technology—not to mention that making music is my go-to stress reliever! Not having access to technology will certainly be a challenge!
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most: Dan Gheesling, by far. He is not afraid to make big moves, he has a great social game to complement his strategic prowess, and I'm inspired by the fact that he never ever gives up!
What are you afraid of: Flying insects/bats, death, being out of control, and being humiliated publicly.
Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… From a blog I wrote in my early 20s: I find my calm not at the finish line, looking back at the distance I've traveled, but in the moment, on the run, out of breath, looking forward. I don't know where I'm going, and I guess I hope to God I never get there—I'm happy as I am: Chasing something eternal and ethereal. The world is not—will never be—enough for me and that's just the way I like it. Also, I live by a code of, "Do right, be fair, have heart."
What would you take into the house and why: First would be my iPod/headphones to listen to music because music greatly impacts my emotions and can help me keep a level head when I'm stressed. I listen to music when I play poker and it would be awesome to be able to use it similarly during Big Brother. I’d also bring hair bleach. I highlight my hair and three months is a hella long time to go without doing my roots #vanity!! Finally, my journal since I love to write. It helps me process my emotions and make decisions with a clear head.

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.

As posted, her ex-husband died last year:

http://www.bluff.com/news/chad-brown-poker-pro-dies-at-52-58101/

Someone on SS posted this:

It'll be interesting if Vanessa brings up her marriage at all in the house. There was speculation that the reason Vanessa and Chad broke up was because Vanessa came out to him as a lesbian.

Chad died last year, so the only one who knows for sure is Vanessa.

She says in the KFROG interview if someone recognizes her she hopes to keep it on the down low, comes to her first, and make an alliance with the person. If rest of house finds out, will tell them she was a poker player in the past, now a DJ.

Says this will be her biggest battle.

I notice she is very accomplished (talks about her achievements a lot), so I wonder if she may rub others the wrong way.

She reminds me of Gina Marie, but thank goodness it's only in looks. I like her.

She has a girlfriend.

PostSubject: Re: Vanessa Rousso   October 1st 2015, 7:09 pm

Just finished watching her interview with Reality Recaps and liked it a lot, but I'm also biased lol! It will probably be posted tomorrow.

She did offer a Jason a job to work for her and Mel with a DJ business she is setting up. She said she was sincere when she told him she would help him.

She also explained her Liz vote and said it wasn't made because she was bitter. She knows how to handle losing large sums of money so walking out and losing $500,000 wasn't a big deal for her. She went more to play a game and having fans tell her she played the best game means more to her than people realize.

She was hurt by something Austin said at the jury house about "how hard it was to be her friend".

She didn't feel she bullied Steve in the have not room. She was truly hurt because before that she really felt she was his #1 and vice versa. I believe her with this because I thought the same thing when it happened.

If I remember anything else, I will post. It was too short.

A point to add to the interview....Steve tweeted the host after the topic of Vanessa possibly bullying Steve was brought up. Steve tweeted that at no time did he feel like Vanessa was bullying him. This is at least the third time Steve has mentioned this in interviews, and I thought it was nice of him to tweet during the broadcast to make it clear once again, how he sees that situation.

Vanessa was still talking so fast during the interview. I had a hard time keeping up.

Oh yes! I forgot about that and yes she does talk fast, but in this interview, it was okay because Eric's voice can be just annoying at times.

Also, she explained her skittles chart and it was still confusing as hell lol!

One thing I will add is that her way of explaining was the same way she did it in the house. Not sure if that is good or bad.
