Jessica Graf (‘Big Brother’ 19) ditches reality TV for an acting gig on ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’

It looks like being voted out pre-jury was a blessing in disguise. EW reports that recent “Big Brother” evictee Jessica Graf will film an episode of CBS’s “The Bold and the Beautiful” on September 5, as her remaining houseguests continue trying to win the reality TV show’s half-million dollar prize. The VIP concierge from Los Angeles was evicted early because of her toxic showmance with Cody Nickson, but Graf is now getting the last laugh. Will you watch Graf on “Bold and the Beautiful”? Sound off down in the comments section.

Graf will star alongside “Bold and the Beautiful” regulars Kimberlin Brown (Sheila Carter), Heather Tom (Katie Logan) and Darin Brooks (Wyatt Spencer) as a waitress at the Il Giardino restaurant. It’s the first acting gig for Graf, who said in her “Big Brother” exit interview that she essentially just gave up on playing the game.

“It took half the season of just being attacked, lied to and back-stabbed for me to just give up,” she told “BB” host Julie Chen. “I put a lot of heart into certain relationships and friendships that I had with people in that house, and they lied to me several times and stabbed me in the back and let me down every chance that they had. So I just gave up.”

Does Graf acknowledge that she threw away her chance at the $500,000 prize for a relationship with Nickson? “It wasn’t that I gave up my game for Cody. We just thought alike. And because we thought so much alike, he was my partner in this game.” Jessica has admitted that she loves Nickson, so all eyes will be on the two lovebirds when the reunite at the “Big Brother” finale on September 20.
