Danielle Marie Lickey[2] was a HouseGuest on Big Brother: Over The Top.

One of the strongest physical and mental HouseGuests of the season, Danielle quickly found herself targeted early in the game, being nominated the first three weeks. After her showmance Shane Chapman's week 3 eviction, she took on an aggressive style of gameplay; winning 2 HoH's and 1 PoV, being a part of several fights, and running the game along with Jason Roy for several weeks. After considering sending home her alliance member, Justin Duncan, during her reign as HOH in the second part of the Double Eviction, he and Kryssie Ridolfi chose to evict her the following week when she found herself nominated alongside Jason, by HOH Shelby Stockton, placing sixth.

Occupation: Pre-school teacher
Three adjectives that describe you: Competitive, sarcastic, and a leader.
Favorite activities: Playing flag-football, cooking, and photography.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother: Over the Top house? Being away from my son. I’ve never been away from him for more than five days. He’s my best friend, my right-hand man, and my motivation.
Do you have a strategy for winning the game? I plan on being a good player in competitions and making myself someone worth aligning with. I plan on finding one or two people I am 100-percent loyal to. I hope to have a good social game and not be afraid to make BIG moves.
Which Big Brother Houseguests do you like the most and least? I’d liked Derrick Levasseur’s gameplay from Season 16. He played a smart, loyal game and was always three steps ahead. I liked Zakiyah Everette from Season 18 the least. She should have used the position more with the guys and played them to get ahead.
What would you take into the house, and why? Picture of my son because I’ll miss him, camera because I would want memories to bring home with me, and someone to thread my eyebrows.
Fun facts about yourself:
1. I am very obsessed with Harry Potter.
2. I have seen EVERY episode of Friends, like, 20 times.
3. I play flag football.
4. I go to Disneyland at least once a month.
5. I am the definition of expect the unexpected!
