Rebecca "Becky" Burgess was a HouseGuest on Big Brother 17. Becky initially played a quiet game, slowly building trust with most of the HouseGuests. She was considered a major competition threat, often placing high in many physical competitions, and winning 2 HoHs and 1 BoB. When she became the Head of Household, she chose to target puppet master Vanessa, proving her strength as a strategist. However, her pawn Shelli became evicted instead.
Following Shelli's eviction, Vanessa began to target Becky the following week. After surviving the first Double Eviction, Becky was nominated and evicted by a unanimous 6-0 vote. She placed 9th and was the third member of the Jury.
Becky is notorious for surviving a train collision that left her in poor physical condition but recovering in less than eight weeks.

On the outside, Becky is the "All American" girl next door who the men will fall in love with, and the girls will want to befriend, but inside she's a strategic and aggressive competitor they should fear. Having grown up in Denver, she's always been athletic and outdoorsy. She's not afraid to get dirty and has been known to out-climb her dates while hiking 14,000-foot mountains in Colorado. She knows her looks give her an edge in life but doesn't rely on them because she's the total package.
