Big Brother Wiki

Carmela Carolina Fernanda "Carmen" Russo was a housemate on Grande Fratello VIP 6. She previously competed on Grande Fratello VIP 2.

Carmen entered the House in Grande Fratello VIP 2 on Day 36 after the season was extended. Because of her late entry, and despite being a well-known TV personality and reality star, she was not able to impress the public or her housemates: she was quickly nominated against Aida Yespica, lost the public vote and was eliminated after only 15 days, finishing in 13th Place.

As her previous game was considered as 'wasted potential', Carmen was given a second chance to play in Grande Fratello VIP 6, and she redeemed herself on many fronts. While still remaining relatively under-the-radar in the main house dynamics, Carmen became an early fan favorite thanks to her hilarious facial expressions, love for dance and family history. She developed an early conflict with Katia Ricciarelli and later with Nathaly Caldonazzo, but she was quickly able to solve both of them. Unlike her previous appearance, Carmen managed to survive multiple public votes, until Day 124, when the public decided to shield fan-favorite Soleil Sorge and newcomer Federica Calemme at her expense.
