On Big Brother 3, she was known for her strong, competitive nature, and she managed to create a successful two-person alliance with Jason Guy and made it all the way to the final three, where Jason was evicted. Unfortunately for her, the jurors were aware of her cocky Diary Room confessionals and she was named the runner-up, only receiving one vote from the Jury. This sparked much controversy, as many fans believed Danielle should have won the game which also changed the Jury format for later seasons.
Reyes returned for All-Stars and was immediately targeted for being a strong strategic player. Throughout the season, Danielle was often campaigning to get out the Sovereign Six alliance. She was also a member of The Legion of Doom alliance that consisted of herself, her ally James, Mike and Will, with the goal of evicting Janelle. When her closest ally James was evicted in Week 7, the Legion of Doom was no more as Danielle vowed to go after Chilltown for their betrayal. When her ally Erika won HoH in Week 8, it seemed like Danielle was safe. Unfortunately for her, Mike and Will convinced Erika Landin that Danielle was a major threat which resulted in her being backdoored by a unanimous 3-0 vote during the first half of the fast forward week, placing 6th and becoming the fourth member of the jury.
Because of her social game and strong strategic abilities, she is often regarded as one of the greatest houseguests in Big Brother history, and named "Greatest Player to Never Win" by fans and many previous players including Will Kirby.
Danielle Reyes was a 30 year old media buyer from Fairfield, California. Danielle became a teenage mother while in high school, and later had another child.
Danielle is the first African-American female to win a Power of Veto competition.
Since Big Brother 3, Danielle, along with Jason Guy and Derrick Levasseur, are the only houseguests to never be nominated as their keys were pulled at every nomination ceremony, and they were only nominated by default during the final three. They were later followed by Paul Abrahamian who did not touch the block until the final 3 in Big Brother 19 despite getting nominated in week 1.
She is the first houseguest to make it to the final two with no eviction votes cast against her.
