You know Big Brother 16’s Jocasta Odom wears bow ties religiously — she even rocks one in her CBS swimsuit photo — but there’s a lot more to learn about the mama minister.
Jocasta, 33, lives in a town called Lovejoy, Georgia. So you know she has to be a positive person! However, in her CBS bio, she admitted she once got into an argument with a churchgoer for complaining about her not wearing pantyhose. (Ha! Team Jocasta on that one.) She also said she would swear on the bible to win Big Brother and plays pranks on her husband when she’s angry with him. (Amber Borzotra also loves pranks; they should plan one together.)
Jocasta described herself as “Intelligent, motivator and outspoken” and her favorite activities are skating and bike riding. She said being a mother (to "two awesome boys") is the accomplishment that gives her the most pride. “I know this sounds cliché, but getting my degrees weren’t as hard as both of my pregnancies,” she said in her CBS bio. “During my first pregnancy I had to overcome a lot of obstacles. I was on bed rest for 5 months and was fired because of it. I had to fight for my job and the fight put me back in the hospital, but ultimately I got my job back. I was also on bed rest for 3 months during my second pregnancy.” Yikes!
In her CBS video, she said her biggest strength is that she's a people person and very outgoing. But she also very competitive and "jumps over women at baby showers" to win at all costs. She said she didn't really have a downfall at all (so maybe pride) and she's willing to be hated by America to win. She said her favorite past BB Houseguest is Rachel Reilly “because she had drive and fight. She was making the best moves for her game and although she had a target on her she was able to persevere.” Truth.
