Suzette had close friendships with HouseGuests Gary and Danielle. She clashed with HouseGuest Tom, who she nominated for eviction on the first night. On Day 1, Suzette became the first Head of Household of the season, and was told that she had to make nominations that night based solely on first impressions; she chose Emmett and Tom. When Tom saved himself with the Power of Veto, she chose Kat to be the replacement nominee. Kat was evicted that week, receiving eleven out of twelve votes. After Danielle's eviction in week 2, Suzette and her only other ally Gary were target number one for anyone who won Head Of Household. During week three, Tom nominated Suzette. However, on Day 22, she was removed from the block by Canada's vote. Suzette came to find herself on the block a total of three times during the game, and was eliminated by a vote of 6-1 in Week 5, with the only person opting to save her being Gary.
