To some, she might seem like another sleeper contestant like Season 18’s Zakiyah, riding on the waves of her showmance with Cody, a.k.a. what some fans might call the new Paulie in training. But Jessica’s Instagram before Big Brother 19 shows how much fun the houseguest is in real life. Maybe Big Brother is also real life, but this is outside the confines of the BB19 compound.
If you pay attention to what she talks to Cody about, you’ll see that instead of wanting to play this mysterious and almost secretive game like he is, she’s about holding their alliance together and being as strong as possible. Now, I don’t know how I feel about an alliance that’s almost exclusively made up of showmances and encompasses nearly half the house, but she definitely seems like a strong player when she’s not snuggling up to Cody in the HOH room.
And since Jessica’s Instagram is a testament to how much fun the BB19 houseguest actually is, it kind of makes you want to see that side instead of the showmance over everything else side currently going on. The 26-year-old VIP concierge clearly knows how to have fun and live it up in the best way possible.
Her most recent party trip was to Coachella in April, but it looks like it was more of a friend trip than a work thing. And judging by the plethora of photos, including one of Jessica and her friends recovering with IV drips, I’d say it was a successful party week.
It should probably come as no surprise though that outside of BB19, Jessica is friends with a bunch of really ridiculously good looking people. And she’s nothing if not devoted to her very strong Instagram game. She even said in her Big Brother bio that one of the things she would take into the house would be "Instagram. How do I go three months without spying on people?!" For most of us though, that’s a legitimate concern.
It hasn’t really been a big surprise that Jessica quickly became part of the "cool alliance" on BB19, since she and Cody matched up pretty quickly and he became the first Head of Household this season, making him the most powerful person on the show right now. But can he handle her outside of the house? Her Instagram before Big Brother 19 shows how much fun she has, sans responsibilities or attachments, which doesn't exactly seem like Cody's scene.
Even though it feels like this season has already been on for a good month, we’re only creeping up on the first official elimination, which means that Jessica’s place in the BB19 house and her game in general could still drastically change. But if her Instagram teaches us anything, it’s that she’s definitely a people person and she could potentially have an incredible social game this season.
