    Victoria Rafaeli - BB16 **Live Feed Spoilers**


    Victoria Rafaeli
    Big Brother 16 Houseguest

    Age: 22
    Hometown: Brooklyn, N.Y. and Holon, Israel
    Currently Living: Weston, Fla.
    Occupation: Photographer

    --------------------------------------------------------

    Raised by orthodox Israeli parents, Victoria is expected to live at home until she’s married, and once even rejected a public marriage proposal. She started her own photography business when she was only 19 years old, without any formal training.

    Three adjectives that describe you:
    Exotic, bold and empowered.

    Favorite Activities:
    Shopping, capturing moments with my camera, belly dancing, blasting music and sing along, Zumba and salsa dancing.

    What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the “Big Brother” house?
    Not having communication with my mom. I speak to my mother multiple times a day. I call her every time I arrive and leave a place and I like to tell her about my day. Also, I live with my parents so if I’m not talking to her on the phone I am talking to her in person.

    Strategy for winning “Big Brother”:
    In it to win it! I don’t take no for an answer. I will manipulate people with my looks; I am very strategic and always get what I want. The word CAN’T is not in my vocabulary.

    Which past “Big Brother” cast member did you like most?
    I don’t watch Big Brother in the states; I watch the one in Israel.

    What are you afraid of?
    Animals, especially birds.

    What is the accomplishment you are most proud of?
    At the age of 21, I ran and owned a successful photography business. I am so thankful that my clients trust me and allow me to capture their special and most precious moments!

    Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is…
    …live everyday as if it’s your last.

    What would you take into the house and why?
    Hair extensions, I don’t go anywhere without them. Makeup, I like to be dolled up and presentable no matter where I am going. My camera, it’s my passion and capturing moments is what I do best.

    What would you do if “Big Brother” made you famous?
    Go along with the ride and enjoy every second of it. I would promote my photography business as well.

    I haven't seen her be nearly as "princess-y" on the feeds as they've shown her on the TV show. I'm pleasantly surprised, so far.

    Is Victoria still mad at Frankie for nominating her? Anything about this on the live feeds? She seemed to be "done" with him from what I gathered on the show Sunday.

    I think they're okay (as friends) now -- he's been there for her when she's had her meltdowns (there have been several), although she's not in the Bomb Squad.

    I like Victoria now. I haven't seen the meltdowns. I do think she is pretty when she's not putting on the ritz.

    People on Twitter are saying she just learned English? Is this correct?

    And is it true that you don't say please in Hebrew when you ask for something, as she says to excuse her bossiness? There must be at least one Hebrew speaker on here!

    Most educated Israelis know English pretty well I think, but it's one thing to learn it in school and another to speak it with natives. In her case I don't even recall being struck by an Israeli accent though. Maybe she mostly grew up in Brooklyn in the Orthodox community, where not much English might be spoken, but went to public school with native English speakers...?

    I also heard Victoria describe business transactions where she just says, "sign this." She believes this is standard business language and please is not necessary. I disagree.

    Well, she's saying it is, in Hebrew, that they don't use "please" the way we do, and she is just translating in her head.
