During the Week 1 Food Competition, Lori discovered the Lobster ball, which she was told to keep. She was told to open the ball, which held a key. Lori unlocked a box and found $10,000 inside. Julie Chen informed Lori that she was allowed to keep the money if and only if she put everyone on PB&J diets for the week. Lori agreed.
This decision came back to bite her as Marvin Latimer held a grudge and nominated her in the second week, resulting in her eviction.
She is the first houseguest from Massachusetts.
After Big Brother, Lori had a supporting role in The Scorned.
