Sheryl Braxton was a houseguest on Big Brother 2 (US).

A popular houseguest with her housemates, Sheryl was nominated in the first week by Head of Household Mike Malin as a pawn in an effort to oust Nicole Nilson Schaffrich. This backfired when Nicole made a strong campaign to the other side of the house to turn the tables on Mike and his Chilltown alliance, blindsiding Sheryl in a close 5 to 3 vote. She became the first member of The Jury and is the first houseguest to be evicted by her housemates rather than be banished by America's vote.
