Get ready for your head to spin, America. You’re about to meet Paola Shea, a 27-year-old DJ from New York City. And consider this your warning: She is quite the personality. This funny, crazy, and extremely outgoing gal is a contestant on Big Brother 16 and is ready to form an all-girl alliance — even though she admittedly doesn’t get along with girls. (Oh, boy.)

“As a DJ, you have to be able to read a crowd, so I’m good at that. And a crowd usually comes toward me because I’m a magnet, so it’s going to be easy,” Paola said in her CBS video. “I’m very unique. I don’t think there’s ever been a female DJ in the house before, so I have a very dynamic personality.”

A former Maxim model who is also a top-ranked video game player, Paola is a lady of many talents. That being said, homegirl is going to try and play herself down when it comes to her efforts to win $500K by the end of the summer, admitting that she’s going to “try not to be myself as much.” (Again, yikes.) So what exactly is her strategy?


“Being in a male-dominated field, I do have more guy friends than girl friends,” Paola admits. “But I am hoping to challenge myself and be friends with more girls than guys. Girls hate each other, so already that’s going to be tough. I want to form an all-girl alliance. I want to take the best four girls to the Top 4 because I don’t think it’s ever been done before.”

We sure hope this chick can keep her giant personality under control while in the house. Going strong very early in the game can get yourself kicked out right off the bat. We think Paola has the opportunity to stir up some major drama this season — be it with a showmance or just in general — so hopefully she sticks around for a while.

What do you think about Paola? Are you supporting her game or hoping she gets voted out? Hit the comments and sound off!
