Big Sister Says:
Biggest positive - Sister of former winner Rachel Reilly.

Biggest negative - Sister of former winner Rachel Reilly.

Yes, Elissa is what CBS meant when they said there would be a familiar face. That's a bit of a stretch.

I admire her stated intention of trying to make it to the end with an all-girl alliance. It would be a first.

But I'm not holding my breath.

I expect there will be some guys involved and she'll go back and forth with the all girls - all the time goal.

She seems like a very religious person. That always concerns me because people often use the "if it's meant to be" or the "it's in the Lord's hands" excuses.

God isn't playing Big Brother for you. You're playing it. Either play it to win or go home.

Some of the cast has made it clear they are not a fan or Elissa's sister.

Will Elissa let them know? Will they figure it out on their own?

I don't think she has much of a chance. But I thought the same of Rachel.

Elissa's Strategy:
"My strategy for winning Big Brother, is to be laser focused on forming the first all girl alliance in BB history to make it to the end. And whether it's two, three or four women, isn't going to matter, as long as I'm the last woman standing."

Name: Elissa Slater

Age: 27

Hometown: Concord, N.C.

Living: Kannapolis, N.C.

Occupation: Nutritionist

Marital Status: Married Mom

Three adjectives that describe you: Effervescent, ambitious and intriguing.

Favorite Activities: I love to do Yoga. I practice every day. I also run frequently as well as play tennis. I travel a lot and I love seeing the history of other countries. I like to go to the movies and cook.

What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the “Big Brother” house? Not talking to my husband or son. It will be difficult because I’m not away from both of them at the same time ever. I’m with either one or the other.

Strategy for winning “Big Brother”: I am going to bring qualities to the table that the house will like and want to keep around. I’m going to try and keep to myself and not let my emotions get the best of me. I’ll be more of a listener so I can feel out what’s going on in the other houseguests' minds.

Which past “Big Brother” cast member did you like most or least? Rachel Reilly rocks!!! I am biased. Rachel is fun, entertaining, plays the game, didn’t lie very often to get ahead and she is so hilarious. Monet was my least favorite because she was so bad at the game.

What are you afraid of? I’m afraid of heights and planes.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of: I am most proud of my son. He is so precious and such a beautiful boy and loves the Lord. It makes me feel amazing to know I contributed to his personality.

Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… Live life to the fullest and have no regrets. Thank God for each good day he gives you and learn from the bad days and try not to repeat what caused them. Make no mistake twice. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

What would you take into the house and why? A bible, yoga mat and spray tan. What would you do if “Big Brother” made you famous: Use it to minister and help others.
