At the beginning of the game, Jessica became a member of the Late Night Crew Alliance that ran the game for the first couple of weeks. She also had a romantic relationship with fellow houseguest Eric Stein. When the Late Night Crew Alliance crumbled, Jessica and Eric teamed up with Dick and Daniele. The alliance of the two pairs dominated the middle portion of the game with Daniele and Jessica being able to win 4 HoHs back-to-back. However, the alliance's dominance ended when the outsider Zach won HOH and nominated Jessica against Jameka. When she remained on the block, the Donatos decided to blindside her during the first half of the Double Eviction, by voting to evict her. She was evicted by a 2 to 1 vote, and became the fourth member of the jury, placing 6th.
Jessica proved her ability to be a game player by winning 2 Head of Household competitions and avoided being nominated until Day 62.
Jessica was selected by the producers to have a chance to return to the house in Big Brother 11 if her clique won the first Endurance Challenge. However, her clique lost and Jessica did not earn the right to return to the Big Brother house.
