The cast of Celebrity Big Brother has been revealed and the 11 houseguests will compete for three-and-a-half weeks to win the grand prize.

Meet the Cast of Celebrity Big Brother>>>

One of them is Shannon Elizabeth, a 44-year-old actress who is originally from Texas, but now lives in South Africa.

Who Is Shannon?

Shannon Elizabeth is best known as an actress, starring in the American Pie films and she had a recurring role on That '70s Show. More recently she also started to play poker professionally. She's also a vegan and a vocal advocate for environmental and animal rights issues.

Reality Competition History

Ten years ago she was a contestant on Dancing with the Stars season 6. She finished in sixth place with her partner, Derek Hough. Interestingly, fellow Celebrity Big Brother HG Marissa Jaret Winokur competed on the same season of DWTS, but she finished in fourth place.

Shannon on Celebrity Big Brother

Shannon, like Ross, is a legitimate super fan of the show who claims to have seen every season at least once, if not twice. Her favorite players are Dr. Will, Dan, Evel Dick and Janelle, a true all-star line-up.

Her strategy is to lay low and hope that bigger personalities make themselves targets while she forms her alliances. She also talks about needing to adapt her strategy as the game unfolds and she wants to use her skills as an actress to play whatever role she needs to play.

How do you think Shannon will do on Celebrity Big Brother?
