In Big Brother 7, both she and her returning ally Diane found themselves on the outs after failing to vote with the majority at the first eviction. The two were nominated alongside each other in Week 2, and Nakomis was ultimately evicted by a vote of 8 to 2, placing 13th.
Jennifer Jeannene "Nakomis" Dedmon (born April 25, 1983, in Houston, Texas) was a restaurant waitress from San Antonio, Texas. Though her real name is Jennifer, she requested to go by the name "Nakomis", a name she claimed she got when she was fifteen. The name "Nakomis" means "the daughter of the moon".
In Big Brother 5, Nakomis became the second person to have their Diary Room chyron display their nickname alongside their real name. She was initially referred to her real name, "Jennifer", in her chyron, with her nickname displayed alongside from Weeks 1 to 4. Her name was officially changed to "Nakomis" starting in Week 5. She would be preceded by Chiara Jude Berti, and followed by Jackson Michie.
Nakomis became the first female houseguest to win more than two Head of Household competitions.
