Ivette was the first and, so far, remains the only houseguest in Big Brother history to cast a tiebreaker vote at the Final Five, then cast the sole vote to evict at the Final Four, and then win the final Head of Household competition and cast the sole vote to evict at the Final Three.
Ivette was the first openly gay houseguest to reach the Final Two in Big Brother.
She would later be followed by eventual winner Andy Herren.
Ivette was also the first Hispanic-American houseguest to reach the Final Two.
