Natalie is one feisty Latina who will stop at nothing to win the game. She has no qualms about lying, cheating and stealing just to emerge victorious. This World Champion bronze medalist in Tae Kwon Do learned how to protect herself at a young age, and can handle whatever anyone throws at her.
Confident about her skills, Natalie is also a big poker player who shouldn’t be underestimated. She invites her opponents to “bring it on” because she isn’t afraid of a good challenge.
All that bravery of hers can be attributed to her father, who she describes as her rock. The man’s unselfish nature has left a mark on Natalie and is something she’ll always remember. One thing she finds really difficult about being on Big Brother is the separation from him. She can’t stand losing contact with her dad for such a long time, but she’s willing to persevere.
As a contestant on the 11th season of Big Brother, she competed against 11 other aspirants and a mystery houseguest. While in the house, she became known for lying about her age. She was in the Athletes clique and was true to her alliance, until she was eliminated during the finale. She became the runner-up, winning $50,000. In 2011, she was asked to appear on Big Brother season 13, where she and several alums returned to play doubles with eight new houseguests for a chance to win the grand prize of $500,000.
