Big Brother 18 cast member Zakiyah Everette, 24, hails from Charlotte, North Carolina and is a preschool teacher of three year-olds.  She is familiar with the game as she has been watching the show since Big Brother 3.

One of the first things Zahikyah mentioned during her “Meet the Houseguests” interview was that she is “ready for a showmance” and wants it to be like Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd.  Besides the fact they ended up with a fairy tale romance, I think most of us can envy their relationship.  While she plans to use her looks and flirty ability to her advantage, if she falls for one and finds him genuine – they will go to the end together.

Zakiyah sounds like she is in it to win it as she knows she will have to lie, manipulate and do whatever she has to do.  She considerers her strongest threats are her cognitive abilities.  She wants to think before she acts and be a good mental player.  Although, she says her mouth could be her downfall.

If a fellow houseguest tries to come at her, or step on her toes, she will speak her mind in return. However, in her interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she says she is not a confrontational person, but will handle issues when they come to her.  Time will only tell if she’s a fire bomb or a teddy bear.

Zakiyah’s end goals for being on Big Brother 18, besides winning the $500,000, are to meet some good people that she connects with and relates to, and getting herself a “boo”.

As a teacher and a student, Zakiyah needs the money and therefore, would rather “win and be hated by America” rather than “lose and be loved by America”.  Tune in to tell whether or not she will make for good game play or at least good TV.
