Keesha Smith is currently a houseguest on Big Brother 22 (US). She also appeared on Big Brother 10 (US).

Best remembered for her close friendship with Memphis Garrett, Keesha was known for starting The Coven alliance along with Libra Thompson and April Dowling which dominated the first few weeks of the game by orchestrating Brian Hart's blindside for overplaying and the eliminations of the two people that were linked up with him Steven Daigle and Angie Swindell. However, after April won Head of Household, she wanted to target Keesha's friend Memphis, but Keesha and Libra grew irritated by Jessie Godderz's arrogant personality and after a fallout between her, Libra, and Jessie, Keesha and Libra flipped on April's plan, siding with Memphis' Renegades alliance in blindsiding Jessie. Keesha stuck with The Renegades as the alliance dominated the rest of the game despite losing Libra during Week 5 and this put her in a strong position to win at the end. However at the Final 4, Dan Gheesling and Memphis saw Keesha as a bigger Jury threat than the sole remaining outsider Jerry MacDonald, and she was betrayed by Memphis when he cast the sole vote to evict her, making her the sixth member of the jury. Keesha also won the $25,000 America's Choice Jury Prize at the live finale.
