Natalia Mercedes "Natalie" Negrotti was a houseguest on Big Brother 18 (US).

Natalie began the game in the minority, along with her close allies Bronte D'Acquisto and Bridgette Dunning, who together formed the Spy Girls. To survive in the game, Natalie had to dumb down her personality and intelligence, and it evidently worked as she became the least of everybody’s worries. Shortly after, Natalie grew a close bond with James Huling, who then became her showmance partner. Together, they managed to sit in the middle while the two sides of the house went at each other. After weeks of Paulie Calafiore running the house, Natalie decided to make a move and use her social game to flip the vote to evict his showmance Zakiyah Everette and keep her ally Michelle Meyer. Her plan was successful as Zakiyah was evicted by a vote of 3-2. Despite Bridgette being taken out in the Double Eviction, Natalie’s new alliance that she had created to take down Paulie won power the following week and evicted him. Natalie’s game began to crumble after her and James decided to side with Paulie’s old allies Corey Brooks and Nicole Franzel to take out Paul Abrahamian and Victor Arroyo during Natalie’s Head of Household reign. This move proved poor as neither of the duo were evicted as Victor immediately re-entered the game after his eviction. Additionally, this move also destroyed Natalie and James’s position in the middle of the house as Corey and Nicole made a deal with Paul and Victor the following week to evict Michelle. After Victor won Head of Household in week eleven, he put Natalie and James on the block. After both remained on the block come eviction night, Natalie was evicted by a vote of 3-0, placing 6th and becoming the 6th member of the jury.

Because of her bright and bubbly personality, Natalie has become one of the most popular contestants of her season, at times even earning the most votes to win America's first care package. On finale night, Natalie, along with Victor and James was revealed to be in the top three to win America's Favorite Houseguest, but she lost to Victor.

Age: 26
Hometown: Caracas, Venezuela, South America
Current city: Franklin Park, NJ
Occupation: Event coordinator
Three adjectives that describe you: Altruistic, athletic, and beautiful.
Favorite activities: I love painting, cooking, baking, eating, napping, shopping, online shopping, doing makeup, doing hair, tanning, pageants, dancing, going on dates, playing with puppies, looking at puppy videos on Instagram and online, party planning, decorating, having tea time, getting dressed-up, doing my nails, and bargain shopping!
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house? Living with men because I have never lived with a man in my house, not even my own father!
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most? Donny Thompson (from Season 16) because he was the sweetest and most genuine human.
Do you have a strategy for winning the game? Yes! I'm super-girly and athletic, and will fake everyone out with my kindness. I’ll act very innocent, stay low-key for the first week, and won't win the first challenge. Then, I will start showing I'm a powerful force not to be messed with. I will have an alliance with only three women because women suck at this game and I was an NFL cheerleader for the New York Jets and know how to deal with large groups of women. I will also add men to our alliance, since everyone will want to be in an alliance with me. I'm very kind, but I'm very tough and have street smarts because I was raised by a single mother. I've had to work my whole life and helped my mom pay her bills when I was in high school. People won't expect how much adversity I faced and how tough I am because I'm so pretty.
My life's motto is... Work hard and play harder!
What would you take into the house, and why? I would take makeup because I can't live without it; self-tanner because I can't live without a tan; and my glitter hair spray to keep my hair on-point.[1]
