Paola Shea was a houseguest on Big Brother 16. Paola was nominated Week 1 because she was the first eliminated during her HOH competition. She survived eviction by sitting next to Joey Van Pelt who was a bigger threat to the Bomb Squad. In Week 2, Paola was nominated again by HOH Devin Shepherd. After the Bomb Squad alliance had a fallout, Devin nominated Zach Rance alongside Paola. However, Devin's plan backfired and on Day 21, Paola was evicted by a 10-2 vote, placing 15th.

Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… When you love what you do, you’ll never work another day in your life.
What would you take into the house and why: I would take my DJ equipment so I can play music and have a little party in the house. I would take my swords and my numchucks so I can show it to the cast members. I would take my laptop because I am addicted to social media.
