Fans of CBS reality series BIG BROTHER will see a very familiar face in an upcoming episode of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL when ousted contestant Jessica Graf appears on the soap! In real life, she is a VIP concierge, so it shouldn’t be too much of a stretch when she plays a hostess at Il Giardino! According to Entertainment Weekly, she’ll be appearing in scenes with Kimberlin Brown (Sheila), Heather Tom (Katie), and Darin Brooks (Wyatt).

This isn’t the first time that a BIG BROTHER alum has appeared on B&B — the CBS soaps often play host to guest stars from reality series like that and SURVIVOR. A number of contestants from the 16th season of BIG BROTHER appeared in a Halloween episode of B&B, and Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas made multiple appearances as wait staff at the Bikini Bar. And at the beginning of August, former housguest Jessie Godderz appeared as a bouncer on B&B sister soap THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS!
Los Angeles-based Graf was eliminated on day 51 of the reality show competition after her romance with fellow contestant Cody Nickson led to them both being perceived as threats in the house and they were both evicted by the other houseguests. In fact, Cody followed right behind his girlfriend, being sent home the following week. We’re sure there will be some references in Graf’s dialogue to Cody, roommates, or something along those lines, so be on the lookout!
B&B has welcomed many different guest stars to its cast over the years, and some even became recurring roles on the soap! Check out the gallery below and see how many you remember!
