Jessica Graf Big Brother | Jessica Graf Big Brother 19
She appeared on the 19th season of Big Brother. On the first day, Graf received a “friendship” bracelet from Paul Abrahamian resulting in being safe from the first eviction.
During the first week of the competition, she started a showmance with fellow contestant, Cody Nickson and voted to evict Christmas Abbott after Nickson, Head-of-Household at the time, nominated her for eviction.
In the second week, she was named as a recipient of the Ve-toad curse after Abbott accepted a temptation offer voted by America, meaning she was required to wear a toad costume and jump between lily pads drawn on the floor of the house. After the pair was isolated from the house by an alliance led by Abrahamian, Nickson was voted out.
In week 3, Alex Ow nominated Graf for eviction alongside Dominique Cooper, but Graf was spared from being voted out after Cooper started to get into fights with the other houseguests.
In Week 4, Graf won the third and final temptation from America and she chose to accept the Halting Hex, allowing her to cancel any of the four subsequent evictions, resetting that week.
In week 4, she won the Head-of-Household after Nickson, her showmance partner, won the Battle Back Showdown and reentered the house. Graf chose to nominate Ramses Soto and eventual winner Josh Martinez for eviction, expecting for Martinez to be evicted.
She then won the veto competition and chose the keep the nominations the same, but was blindsided when the remaining houseguests chose to evict Soto over Martinez.
In week 5, Abrahamian nominated both Graf and Nickson for eviction, but Graf used the Halting Hex that same week, sparing the duo from eviction.
In week 6, Martinez won the Head-of-Household competition and managed to win the Temptation Competition, gaining immunity for the week.
Graf intentionally lost the same Temptation Competition to automatically become the third nominee, providing her with a chance to win the Power of Veto later in the week, saving her from eviction. Graf was unable to do so, and was evicted by a vote of 7-1-0 to Raven Walton and Elena Davies, respectively.
Throughout her stint on Big Brother 19, Graf had many conflicts with the other contestants, most notably Abrahamian, Martinez, Abbot, Walton and Ow. Eventually, she became a fan favorite after being one of the few to recognize Abrahamian’s dominance early on in the competition.
After Nickson reentered the house, the duo (Graf and Nickson) were infamously bullied by many other contestants led by Abrahamian.
On the night of the finale after Martinez was crowned the winner, host Julie Chen asked Graf who she would have voted for in the Final between Martinez and Abrahamian. She said that she would have voted for Abrahamian as she felt he orchestrated nearly every move throughout the game.
The vote was revealed as 5-4 in favour of Martinez, with Graf’s showmance partner, Nickson, casting the deciding vote in favour of Martinez. In post-game interviews, Graf appreciated the irony that Abrahamian sought to eliminate her before Nickson, when it would have benefited him to eliminate Nickson first as he would have won
Graf also appeared in the series premiere of the Big Brother spin-off Celebrity Big Brother for a special appearance during the first Head of Household competition.
She then appeared on Big Brother 20 alongside Cody Nickson of to host a Power of Veto Competition.
Jessica Graf Amazing Race
Graf and her fellow competitor from Big Brother 19 Cody Nickson were sought out to compete on the 30th season of The Amazing Race while Big Brother 19 was still airing.
The Race eventually started filming on the 1st of October, just eleven days after filming for Big Brother wrapped up. The two quickly bonded with fellow competitors Jen Hudak, and Kristi Leskinen and Alex Rossi and Conor Daly.
After placing 2nd to Kristi and Jen in the first leg, Cody and Jess managed to win the 2nd leg and a $5,000 cash prize.
The pair conflicted with Brittany Austin and Lucas Bocanegra and considered targeting them in the 6th leg but when they discovered that they were second-to-last, they decided to U-Turn Chris Marchant and Trevor Wadleigh, the only team behind them resulting in the latter’s elimination.
In the 8th leg of the race, Brittany and Lucas chose to U-Turn Cody and Jessica, but they were able to still make it to the pit stop before Eric and Daniel Guiffreda, narrowly avoiding elimination.
Despite coming in 2nd place for most of the Final Leg, Graf was able to finish the ultimate Road Block Challenge before the two other remaining teams, and ultimately taking out the entire season and winning the $1,000,000 grand prize.
Throughout the entire race, Graf and Cody managed to never place below 6th, achieving the 2nd highest average placement, behind Kristi and Jen. The two are the first Amazing Race team from another CBS franchise to win The Amazing Race.
