Big Brother 2014 cast member and Seattle native Joey Van Pelt is an activist, environmentalist, makeup artist and hairstylist. But don’t let her granola ways fool you, she was also the mascot, homecoming queen and senior class president back in high school. This girl has mad skills!
Jody also kind of reminds of us a troll doll in the getup she is wearing for her official CBS Big Brother 16 cast photo. That is not meant to be insulting. We love troll dolls and we are digging Jody and her crazy blue hair equally as much.

More on Joey Van Pelt:
Joey apparently plays the guitar, since she mentions that she will miss it in her CBS bio. In her ExploreTalent.com profile, Joey shows off that she doesn’t always rock blue hair, and states her ethnicity as “mixed” without further detail. We are liking the diversity this season. BTW, Joey’s hair actually now even has it’s own spoof Twitter feed. Don’t expect it to stay the same though, because apparently she has several other colors of hair dye with her in the BB16 house.
We don’t have a lot more about Joey before she was cast on Big Brother 2014, but we do know that she is apparently a big fan of Paint Dancing. Oh, and she is yet another ‘recruit’ for season 16. She was approached to be on the show while she was doing someone’s makeup. (She has not specified whose makeup, as far as we know.)
Big Brother 16 Eviction:
Joey Van Pelt was eliminated first on Big Brother 2014.
