Jean Jordan was a houseguest on Big Brother 1 (US).

Jordan initially hid her past as an exotic dancer to her fellow houseguests, and often found herself struggling with it throughout her stay in the house. Although forming bonds with Curtis Kin and William Collins, she most notably found herself in a love triangle with Brittany Petros and Josh Souza. After being nominated for the second time, Jordan received 78% of the vote from America, becoming the second person banished from the house.


Jean Jordan Biography

Retrieved from
Born in Roanoke, Virginia on August 2, 1973, Jordan is a student majoring in sociology and filmmaking at Minneapolis University of Minnesota.

Jordan has had some interesting jobs. She once campaigned door-to-door for an environmental agency and worked as an exotic dancer for two years to pay for her education. She back-packed through Central and South America and considers finishing the Ironman triathalon her greatest accomplishment.

Serious-minded and disciplined, Jordan's principal interests include training for and participating in triathlons, studying homeopathy and alternative medicine, creative writing and reading. As books go, though, the one that earns the place of honor on her shelf is Webster's Dictionary.

A film buff, Jordan confesses she has too many favorites to mention, but admits a preference for documentaries and films with social commentary.

When not exploring the crisp, cool lakes of Minnesota, Jordan opts for the warmer waters of the tropics. Shes not particular about the destination, "just as long as there are palm trees and I can scuba dive."
