Tanedra Howard in Saw VI

Howard hit the horror-movie jackpot when she landed a role as a banker in a tough spot in this popular franchise after winning VH1's Scream Queens reality contest. In the film's opening scenes, Howard and her colleague are asked to give up a pound of flesh each to atone for their loan sharking. She survives, costing her a limb.
