Bridgette Dunning is a ‘traveling nurse’ and, like many other Big Brother cast members past and present, also an aspiring model and actress. Even though it looks like she may be yet another CBS recruit among the houseguests this year, we still kind of like her anyway. Although we’re pretty sure sit will be a miracle if she even makes it to jury, much less win the whole game.

According to her CBS profile, Bridgette considers herself “goofty” and “super-cute” — traits she thinks will work to her advantage in the Big Brother 18 house. She says what people won’t expect from her is that she is “extremely smart” and believes she “can–and–will outwit others with my gameplay and strategy.”

Bridgette Dunning is most recently from Ventura, CA, according to her CBS profile, but also calls herself a ‘traveling nurse’. We’re not sure exactly what that means. Her LinkedIn profile shows her as still being a nursing student at Samuel Merritt University, although it may be a little out of date. Her resume also says that she is certified in basic life support, advanced cardiovascular life support, and pediatric life support. So she’s definitely someone you want around in an emergency, that’s for sure.

Prior to her studies at Samuel Merritt University, Bridgette attended Holy Names University, which is apparently a Catholic school founded by nuns in the 1800s. Before becoming a nursing student, Bridgette worked as a waitress at Denny’s, and volunteered for several healthcare organizations. She lists human rights, health, civil rights, humanitarian relief, and education among the causes she cares about.

Bridgette’s profile on lists her as an actor/model/musician with film & stage crew experience, but we haven’t found any actual evidence of her working in the entertainment industry before being cast on Big Brother 18. She also looks younger in her photo from the casting site, so it looks like something from at least a few years back.

Before going on Big Brother, Bridgette was wise enough to lock up most of her social media accounts, so we weren’t able to dig up much else about this nurse turned reality TV contestant. We’d like to hope that Bridgette’s sweet nature and bubbly attitude will get her far in the game, but usually those things are screaming red flags that someone is likely to get a pre-jury boot. Especially when they admit outright in their preseason interviews that they are very bad liars.
