Sarah Beth Steagall was a houseguest on Big Brother 23 (US).

A member of the dominant Kings, Sarah Beth is best remembered for her close relationship with Kyland Young and her brief villainous run. Sarah Beth began the game in a good position in The Royal Flush alliance until Week 4 when she pushed too hard for Hannah Chaddha to be targeted. This along with her relationship with Kyland made her a target for the majority of the house, most notability Tiffany Mitchell. She was nominated by Head of Household Derek Xiao in the following week, but survived when Christian Birkenberger was backdoored. Sarah Beth was then spared for the next two weeks when she and Kyland won consecutive HOHs, in which he convinced her to backdoor Derek X. Her luck would run out in Week 8, when Tiffany won HOH and nominated her and Kyland. Despite being removed from the block due to the Coin of Destiny, the duo was once again nominated when Claire Rehfuss decided to keep Tiffany’s nominations in tack. When Sarah Beth fell short of winning the Power of Veto, her fate was virtually sealed. She was evicted by a 5-1 vote, placing 9th and becoming the 3rd member of the Jury.


Sarah Beth Steagall Biography

Sarah Steagall
Age: 27
Hometown: Boiling Springs, South Carolina
Current City: Ft. Myers, Florida
Occupation: Forensic Scientist

Three words that describe you: Sweet, quirky, and self-driven.

Favorite activities: Shopping, partying with friends, reading manga/watching anime, sewing, and singing.

Who are your favorite Houseguest duos? Those who became best friends in the Big Brother house or had a showmance?
Frank and Bridgette, Britney and Ian.

What are you most excited about living inside the Big Brother house?
I’m really looking forward to interacting with the cameras and venting in the Diary Room!

What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house?
I’ve heard the house is really cold and has an ant problem. The only thing I hate more than being cold is dealing with ants!

What is your favorite past moment on Big Brother?
Everything Zach Rance did on BB16.

What is your strategy for winning the game?
I plan to float! I want to make everyone around me feel at ease and convince them I’m a non-threatening, loyal person. Once they realize I’m only playing for myself, hopefully it’ll be too late to stop me.

My life’s motto is…
“Life is chaotic and mostly out of your control, so just do your best!”

What would you take into the house and why?
-An mp3 player with all my favorite songs, because I’ll miss having music in my life.
-Chewing gum, because it helps me concentrate.
-Japanese language textbooks, because I’ve been studying really hard and I don’t want to forget anything while I’m away.

Fun facts about yourself:
-I had a severe speech impediment and was unable to communicate clearly until I was seven years old.
-I am a horrendous cook. As a chemist, I’m pretty ashamed that I can’t figure it out. Even if I follow a recipe, somehow it always turns out wrong.
-I have a crippling phobia of moths/butterflies. I despise them and would kill them off if I could, regardless of the effects on the ecosystem.
-I really like to cosplay, and because of that I’ve become quite the seamstress. I can also style wigs, make jewelry, and create prop armor/weapons.
-Despite being a forensic chemist, I’ve never seen Dexter or Breaking Bad.[1]
