The Traitors US season 2 star Janelle Pierzina compared her fellow contestant, Peter Weber, to her Big Brother best friend and legend of the game, Kaysar Ridha, after Peter’s brilliant plan. During episode 5, Peter decided that he and Janelle should pretend to have won shields, while the actual winners, Bergie Bergersen and Trishelle Canatella, kept their shields a secret. Peter then told the people he suspected as Traitors—Dan Gheesling, Parvati Shallow, and CT Tamburello–that he and Janelle won. The goal was to block the next murder and expose a Traitor. As the episode ended, Dan seemed as though he were about to fall right into Peter’s trap and murder Bergie.
In an X post, Janelle praised Peter for his incredible Traitors US season 2 plan and even compared him to Kaysar.
In Big Brother terms I will lay it all out for you. Peter is just like Kaysar. ( yes my number one ally always) 🏻Loyal, strategic, and a leader. You won’t even believe what he’s capable of 😘 #TheTraitorsUS The Traitors should have never underestimated him. https://t.co/GJoyXLxNtV

Janelle Pierzina’s Traitors US Season 2 Journey
Unfortunately, Peter’s plan didn’t save his ally, Janelle, who was banished at the round table. He and Bergie were livid about her banishment because they were convinced that Dan was a Traitor and voted to banish him instead. Janelle played The Traitors US the same way she played Big Brother–with loyalty, fearlessness, and fire. She always put herself first in order to win shields for immunity, even though some of her fellow Faithfuls thought that she was being selfish. However, her philosophy was that if she didn’t have safety, she might not be in the game to win the grand prize at all.
Janelle’s Traitors US season 2 banishment was yet another mistake for the Faithfuls, who’ve yet to banish one Traitor. However, it seems that Peter is on his way. Janelle’s comparison of Peter to Kaysar is very true. Both Kaysar and Peter are calm and collected. They’re loyal to their allies, and very strategic as well. It’s a high compliment for Janelle to compare Peter to Kaysar, so he must have really impressed by her.
Janelle and Kaysar, affectionately known as “Jaysar” by fans, played Big Brother together three times (seasons 6, 7, and 22). They’re one of the most beloved duos in the history of the show, and they’re still good friends today. In The Traitors US season 2 episode 5, it was becoming clear that Peter could’ve been a similar ally to Janelle. However, she was unfortunately banished before they could really dominate the game together. Peter has been extraordinary to watch so far, and hopefully his plan will work so that, not only will the Faithfuls expose a Traitor, but he can take revenge on them for Janelle as well.
