Victoria Rafaeli's favorite color is pink and she thinks she’s the hottest girl in the Big Brother 16 house.
That much fans learned during her first episode. But did you know that the 22-year-old photographer doesn't usually watch the U.S. version of Big Brother? In her CBS bio, she said she watches the one in Israel. Her hometowns are Brooklyn, N.Y., and Holon, Israel, although now she lives in Weston, FL.
She described herself as "exotic, bold and empowered." Her favorite activities are "Shopping, capturing moments with my camera, belly dancing, blasting music and sing along, Zumba and salsa dancing."
Weirdly enough, her biggest fear is "animals, especially birds." So we're guessing she's not much of a nature photographer. She is very much the girly girl, and she said she'd love to take hair extensions into the Big Brother house because she doesn’t go anywhere without them. She'd also take makeup, because she always likes to be presentable. And she'd take her camera, since she started her own photography business at age 19.
Here's something else you might want to know, if you plan on proposing to her someday: "Raised by Orthodox Israeli parents, Victoria is expected to live at home until she’s married, and once even rejected a public marriage proposal." So that's a good tip: Don't propose to her in public, and if you plan to propose at all, first be 100 percent sure where she stands.
How will she get along with people on BB16? In her CBS video, she said she’s nice but other girls can be mean. (Funny how no one ever thinks it’s them.) She also thinks she’ll be underestimated because she looks naive, but she’s not, and she’s actually very physically fit. She said she plans to manipulate everyone with her smile. Even Jeff thought she could’ve put that better, but … she believes she’ll be loved. Frankie Grande loved her right away, so we’ll see if she can keep the lovefest going.
