Tiffany Rousso is one of the houseguests on Big Brother 18. She might have an advantage over the others for two reasons: one, she’s smart (she’s a high school math teacher), and two, she the little sister of Vanessa Rousso, the poker player houseguest from Season 17. During her pre-premiere interview with Jeff Schroeder, Tiffany plays coy with Jeff when he prods her about her favorite seasons. She doesn’t say Season 17. So Jeff prods more and asks who she knows from past shows. Finally Tiffany blurts it out that “yes, yes, Vanessa is my sister.” Jeff sighs and says, “You’re a tough nut to crack.”
Tiffany goes on to say she plans to play a less emotional game than Vanessa. Her big challenge will be to keep her identity secret from the other houseguests. Might not be easy: she looks and sounds just like Vanessa. Big Brother premieres Wednesday, June 22 at 8pm and Thursdays, June 23 at 9pm on CBS.
