Big Brother[edit]

Lisa was one of 12 contestants on Big Brother 3. Lisa eventually succeeded in being one of the final two houseguests that season, with Danielle. Some of the evicted houseguests later became angered by the comments Danielle had made about them and Lisa was voted as the winner. She received $500,000 for winning the competition by a vote of 9–1 (with Danielle receiving $50,000).

Lisa engaged in a romance with fellow contestant Eric during the show, but she surprised her houseguests when in a later game twist, chose not to bring him back into the house when given the chance.

After Big Brother, Lisa pursued an acting career. In 2004, she had a small part as Lauren in the film Jekyll. In the same year, she had a repeat guest role on the TV series Entourage. Still in the same year, she had another guest role in Dr. Vegas. In 2006, she was one of 20 finalists vying for a spot on Big Brother: All-Stars, but was not invited back into the house.
