On the fourth nominations, Mesquita was one of the most voted by her fellow housemates and was put on the block, alongside Marcello Zagonel and Princy Cavalcante, who later was evicted with 68% of public vote. With strong attitude, she did not let go unchallenged the action of confinement she considered wrong. Also she did not let issues in the air. When she discovered that some of the other housemates had said something about her, she was to confront them. Because of that, she had arguments with Letícia Santiago and Franciele Almeida and fought with Cássio Lannes, who become her biggest rival in the game for some weeks.
