In BB17, she was best known for her loud personality and devoted loyalty to Jason, not being afraid to confront fellow houseguests about lies and rumors in the house, and having multiple blowups in the house. However, her multiple fights and blowups made her a target. She was evicted in week 2 by a vote of 7 to 2 placing 16th.
Despite this, however, she was brought back for BB18, viewed as a fan favorite, forming many alliances and leading the charge to get rid of big targets, but ultimately was deemed one herself. She was ultimately evicted in week 6 by a vote of 6 to 2. She finished in 11th place and became the first member of the jury.
Da’Vonne comes from an extremely religious family. Her mother was a minister and her uncle is a pastor, but she has always gone against the grain. While her family was in church and Bible study, she was at the beach or out with her friends. Her grandmother was the person who understood her best and the one with whom she would watch Big Brother. She encouraged Da’Vonne to apply for the show and the 27-year-old is ready to play! As a poker dealer, she has studied the game and done the competitions along with the Houseguests while watching the show. She knows she needs to learn each person well, even though she doesn't like to team-up with people. She knows she can only trust herself. A super tomboy growing up, she is a strong woman and a single mom. Not worried about the opinions of others, she is doing this for her daughter, hoping to win the money for her future!
