Victoria was known for playing a lazy, quiet game, not engaging in game related moves and not making any definite alliances. Despite being the most nominated houseguest in Big Brother history, she managed to get off the block twice with the help of her partner when nominated as a pair by winning the Battle of the Block competition and once saved herself by winning a Power of Veto competition. The other occasions she was on the block, she was saved once by her houseguest pick veto player, Hayden Voss who used his PoV win to remove her from the block and by the other nominees being voted out. She had a final 2 with power player, Derrick, and he protected her throughout the game. She made it to the Final 3 with them.
She placed 3rd when Cody Calafiore infamously decided to take Derrick to the final two instead of her, becoming the final person evicted and the final member of the jury.

I would promote my photography business as well.
Raised by Orthodox Israeli parents, Victoria is expected to live at home until she’s married, and once even rejected a public marriage proposal. She started her own photography business when she was only 19 years old, without any formal training.
Victoria, along with fellow houseguest Brittany Martinez, are the first houseguests (and first female houseguests) to win Battle of the Block.
On Day 66, Nicole Franzel found Victoria on the bathroom floor. She nearly passed out due to tooth pain and dehydration and was given an IV. It was later revealed on the feeds that she had low blood sugar. She is the 3rd person to receive medical attention inside the BB house, behind season 9 contestants Amanda Hansen and Allison Nichols.
Her infamous eviction by Cody is often seen as one of the worst moves in Big Brother history.
In the live finale interviews, Derrick revealed that during the jury phase of the game, several houseguests made a pact to vote for Victoria to win if a member of the pact took her to the Final Two, in order to discourage players from going for the "easy win" against Victoria.
However, if Cody had evicted Derrick, she would only receive votes from Derrick and Frankie.
Victoria currently holds the record for most times being nominated in a single season, at 10 times.
Victoria also holds the record for most consecutive nominations with 6 in a row.
