BB17 Shelli

Shelli is one of three HouseGuests to employ this strategy and not win.

The Collaborator social strategy involves a houseguest attempting to join an alliance and help that alliance make it as far as possible into the game. The Collaborator's goal is to keep his or her alliance intact, while simultaneously not appearing as a threat as the Leader. Many houseguests have employed this strategy, including Maggie Ausburn (Big Brother 6), Mike Malin (Big Brother 2, All-Stars, & 14), Matt Hoffman and Hayden Moss (Big Brother 12), Shelli Poole (Big Brother 17); Sindy Nguyen (Big Brother Canada 3 & 5).
