Poker pro Vanessa Rousso has become the most controversial cast member on the current season of Big Brother. She looked destined for eviction short weeks ago, but has rebounded to claim “Head of Household” three times and now stands as one of the favorites to emerge victorious from the CBS reality show.
But the powers-that-be at CBS aren’t entirely pleased with the way she’s been playing the game.
Rousso has allegedly been trying to make off-air side-deals with other contestants. As PokerNewsDaily wrote, “Allegedly promises of divvying up the $500,000 prize pool, cars and other items were mentioned by Rousso” to twins Liz and Julia Nolan.
While that sort of side-deal is commonplace at the poker table, evidently it’s not supposed to be in the cards (pun intended!) when it comes to Big Brother; side-deals of that nature are expressly prohibited by the show’s rules.
Rousso claimed that her offers were made in jest, but that’s somewhat difficult to believe. The 32-year-old, who has 14 career cashes in World Series of Poker events, didn’t get to $3,500,000 in career earnings by playing fast and loose.
What, if any, repercussions come from her alleged transgressions remains to be seen. Don’t expect an eviction from on high; but also look for Rousso’s tactics to be scaled back in the weeks ahead; if she’s smart – which we know she is – she’ll tread lightly to avoid angering the Big Brother gods any further.
