I don't know about you, but I love rooting for people from Minnesota. If you're a fan of CBS's 'Big Brother' hosted by Julie Chen, then get excited!

Minnesota native, Janelle Pierzina, is on 'Big Brother' All Stars!  She lives in Minneapolis now as a Realtor with Edina Realty but she's originally from Grand Rapids.

This is actually her 4th time competing on the reality show. She's considered one of the best Big Brother players who has surprisingly never won.

If you're not familiar with the show, 16 house guests live in isolation, completely cut off from the outside world. Each week they compete for power and safety in hopes to make it to the end of the game. The house guests vote out one person each week. The winner receives $500,000 and the runner up gets $50,000.

My husband and I are super fans. We were both worried that maybe Janelle wouldn't be the same player we knew from previous seasons ... but, so far, she's owning it in!

When season 22 premiered last week, she posted from her personal Facebook account, "Surprise ******* ... I bet you'd thought you'd seen the last of me. Special shout out to my beauty team." She gave a shout out to several Minnesota businesses.

Her involvement on the All Star season was a complete surprise to fans. No one knew who would be joining the Big Brother cast until the live season premiere back on August 5.

The All-Star season just started, so you can still root for Janelle to win. You can watch Big Brother live on CBS Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays now through at least October or maybe even early November.
