Big Brother Wiki

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

A popular figure with her houseguests, Sheryl was nominated in the first week by Mike Malin as a pawn in an effort to oust Nicole Nilson Schaffrich. This plan 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 5-3 vote, placing 11th, and becoming the first member of the jury.
