Janelle Pierzina was a houseguest on Big Brother 6 with her secret partner, Ashlea Evans. Janelle is remembered for being a part of the Sovereign Six alliance and her conflicts with The Friendship. She finished in third place, being evicted by the sole vote of Ivette Corredero over the eventual winner Maggie Ausburn.

Pierzina returned to the house in Big Brother All Stars, being reunited with three of her Sovereign Six allies. In this season, Janelle set the record for most individual competitions won in a single season. Once again she placed third. At the finale of the season, Janelle was awarded $25,000 as the winner of the Fan Favorite Award.

Janelle returned along with three former Houseguests for Big Brother 14, as part of the coaches twist. During Week 3, Janelle re-entered the game for her third time. Janelle was the fourth Houseguest evicted, placing twelfth out of sixteen, after Mike "Boogie" Malin convinced Danielle Murphree to nominate Janelle.

Because of her competition prowess, she is regarded as the greatest female houseguest and one of the greatest players in the history of the show.
