Michelle Maradie was a houseguest in Big Brother 4.

Her ex-boyfriend David Lane was also in the house, as part of the X-Factor. In Week 2, Michelle was nominated by HOH Jee Choe as a pawn to send Erika Landin home. But the Elite Eight alliance had other plans and blindsided Michelle, sending her home in a 6–2 vote. She placed 11th.


Michelle Maradie (born 1984) was a 19-year-old college student from Boca Raton, Florida. Her ex-boyfriend, David Lane, appeared as a houseguest this year as well, due to the "X-Factor" twist.
