Vanessa Rousso - Rodeo style - Twitter photoVanessa Rousso, professional poker player and former member of "Team Pokerstars Pro", was unsuccessful in her attempt to win the 17th season of "Big Brother" earlier this evening.

Vanessa Rousso, who also describes herself as a DJ and music producer, used her strategical planning and strength in the challenges to power her way to the final three. In the end, however, Rousso lost a crucial competition at the end and was subsequently bounced in third place. The eventual winner of the show, Steve Moses, ended up taking home $500,000, while the runner-up, Liz Rolan, pocketed $50,000 for her second place finish.

Vanessa Rousso, on the other hand, ended up walking away empty-handed.


Vanessa Rousso has over $3.5 million in live tournament cashes, with her biggest cash ($700,160) coming at the 25k High Roller Championship at the 2009 EPT Grand Final in Monte Carlo.

Rousso, who is one of the winningest female players of all time, managed to parlay her results into a sponsorship deal with Pokerstars. The two sides decided to part ways earlier this year, however, as Rousso's results have tailed off considerably in recent years.
