Big Brother Wiki

Jacklyn Isabel "Jackie" Ibarra was a houseguest on Big Brother 17 (US).

Jackie first entered the house with her Amazing Race partner, Jeff Weldon. Throughout the game, Jackie was loyal to her alliance members, Jeff, Becky Burgess, James Huling, Jason Roy, and Meg Maley. She played an under-the-radar game and was able to get a good read of the house, until the second half of the first Double Eviction, in which she was nominated alongside Meg by Head of Household Steve Moses. After losing the POV, she was evicted in a 6-1 vote, receiving only Becky's vote to stay. She finished in 10th place, and became the second member of the jury.

Occupation: Professional Dancer
Three adjectives that describe you: Passionate, adventurous, and fierce.
Favorite Activities: Dancing, working out, cooking, and hiking.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: Being away from the outside world for so long would be extremely difficult, especially with no form of communication. I am a very adventurous person who loves the outdoors, so I fear being stuck in a house for a long period of time may get to me after a while.
What are you afraid of: Being buried alive.
Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… Life is better when you're laughing!
What would you take into the house and why: I would bring my phone to keep in touch with family and friends. Also, I would bring my best friend, Stacey, and my French Bulldog! And In-n-Out burger! I could eat that every day

This self-proclaimed "Kim Kardashian" look-a-like is used to a fast-paced lifestyle. She's been a Miami Heat Dancer, a magician's assistant and danced professionally for 10 years. She hustles to get every job she gets, beating out hundreds of other girls in the process. She knows she's sexy and isn't afraid to use it to get ahead. Typically, she can fly off the handle during a conflict, but her strategy for Big Brother is to keep as cool and calm as a cucumber. Most recently, she competed on the 26th season of “The Amazing Race” with a blind date partner she met at the starting line. Together, they raced through four countries and placed seventh. With a loss under her belt, Jackie has something to prove this time around, so America is going to see the softer side of her.[1]
