Eleven celebrities are participating in the first ever Big Brother: Celebrity Edition. In the first week, the ladies outnumber the men by just one. And five of the six women are actresses, if you count reality stars as actresses. They Big Brother: Celebrity Edition women are: Keshia Knight Pulliam (The Cosby Show), Marissa Jaret Winokur (Tony winner, Hairspray), Brandi Glanville (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills), Omarosa (The Apprentice, Trump White House), and Shannon Elizabeth (American Pie).
In addition to playing the sexy Nadia in the American Pie movies, Shannon Elizabeth is also known as an animal rights activist. The native Texan is currently living in Cape Town, South Africa, where she is launching her non-profit organization Animal Avengers to help save rhinoceroses and other animals including elephants from poachers. (South Africa is home to 87 percent of the world’s rhino population.) Shannon Elizabeth moved to Cape Town in November 2016. She says when she’s in Africa “I somehow feel more connected. More connected to the animals, their problems & closer to finding solutions.” Photos below.
