As a superfan of the game, Michelle quickly found herself aligned with the returning players and became a member of the 8-Pack and Fatal Five alliances. She was able to fly under the radar for many weeks, not becoming a target until being blindsided by Da'Vonne's eviction during Week 6. During Week 7, Michelle became the target but managed to flip the votes forming an alliance with Natalie in order to stay over Paulie's showmance partner, Zakiyah. Michelle with Natalie and James then allied with Paul and Victor to take out Paulie. Natalie and James then had a change of heart and decided to target Paul and Victor instead of Nicole and Corey, Paulie's remaining allies. Betrayed, Paul and Victor (after winning a 2nd jury buyback) formed a new alliance with Nicole and Corey. Nicole then targeted Michelle, and Michelle was ultimately evicted in Week 10 by a tiebreaker, placing seventh and becoming the fifth member of the Jury.

Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most?Ian Terry [from Season 14]—because he is so freaking attractive to me—played the type of game I would play, acted like how I would act in the Big Brother house (e.g. taking everything in, doing weird stuff around the house, etc.), and beat Dan [Gheesling]. He had great strategy in taking punishments and seeming weak in the beginning. I plan on having a four to six-person alliance that I will stick to. I also plan on letting other people blow up their own games and egging them on in the shadows. Do you have a strategy for winning the game? To win as many competitions as I can and, when I win HOH, to take out someone I see as a threat. I plan on being friendly with everyone and pretending this game doesn't mean the world to me. I plan on passively manipulating people and giving them reasons to follow my suggestions. I will also potentially be in a showmance, if I think it helps in the game. I want to take on all the punishments I can and appear weak while still winning competitions. I want a solid alliance to take to the end, but, secretly, have a better relationship with a few of the people. My life's motto is... "Be underestimated." I want to be smarter than people think I am, stronger than people think I am, etc. It gives you the upper hand! What would you take into the house, and why? My FitBit to get in those 10,000 steps a day, my favorite stuffed animal, which is a basset hound beanie baby, and a heated blanket because I'm always freezing.
