Big Brother Wiki

Keshia Knight Pulliam was a houseguest on Celebrity Big Brother 1 (US).

Keshia managed to steal the first Head of Household of the season from Shannon Elizabeth, during the gift bag twist, and nominated James Maslow and Chuck Liddell for eviction, with the intend of evicting James. However on eviction night she and Omarosa Manigault were blindsided by their allies, who sent Chuck home. Despite the fact that the house had plans to backdoor Shannon, Keshia begged to be sent home due to personal reasons and was evicted in a unanimous vote, becoming the second houseguest evicted. She placed 10th and was the second member of jury.
