Daniele Donato Then & Now

Season 8 had the most successful and heart wrenching twist in BB history. Not only did it reunite bitter exe’s and high school rivals, it also brought together estranged Father/Daughter Dick and Daniele Donato. ‘Evel’ Dick and his 20 year old daughter had a surprise reunion in the Big Brother house thanks to Big Brother’s ‘Unfinished Business’ twist, which brought their 2 year split to an end. Once in the house, they shifted quickly from the ‘Duelling Donatos’ to the ‘Dynamic Donato Duo’.

Not only were they struggling to work out their relationship in the confines of the house, they were also under constant pressure from the other houseguests. Frequently on the block, together they won 11 competitions. Daniele won two HOH`s and a whopping five Vetos, while Dick won three HOH`s and a veto that he used to take Daniele off the block, rather than himself. She returned the favor and saved him from the block weeks later, which assured them spots in the Final three. Dick summed it up rather well (with only a little bias) during the finale saying that they made up `the best team that`s ever played this game`.

You Play To Win The Game

We are on Day 24 of Big Brother 13, and already we’ve seen game playing the likes of which you don’t normally get this early. There has been backstabbing, hinky voting; the game has kicked into high gear.  Normally it’s tough to judge the game being played this early on. However, as a feedwatcher and fan it is my Grodner-given right to play armchair houseguest and calls ’em likes I sees ’em! Here’s my take on the Big Brother 13 houseguests’  games so far:

BB Vultures

After watching the first show of the season, I have to say I think this will be a great cast. Along with the usual spitfires Allison Grodner seems to manufacture in a back closet somewhere, we were shown three duos consisting of past players. Evel Dick was in that mix. Declaring himself the only winner, despite the fact that Jordan was standing just a few feet away, he had already set a tone of dominance that would have, no doubt, been challenged many times in the next few months. But it wasn’t meant to be. Dani said she would get rid of him first chance, and whether or not it was her doing, the fact currently is, Dick is Dead. Or course as you know nothing in BB is set in stone. Things change. Players do come back.

Like many, I am happy to see Jeff and Jordan returning to the house. No one can forget the season these two battled between Natalie and her bestie Kevin. J & J provided much fun to a sometimes hostile house of lies and shouting matches. Ronnie, Chima, Lydia, Russell, and Michele were also part of that friction, yet Jeff and Jordan kept cool in the hammock with delightful talks peppered with laughter and romance. All while playing a smart game.

I remember the day when Jordan was counting fingers for mismatched convos Ratboy had conducted, and suddenly a light bulb went off. She really gave it to him that afternoon. She had guts and wasn’t afraid to take a stance. The entire house was unified, and I loved her for that. When she finally won HOH and received a letter from home stating her family had found a place to live, that was a beautiful moment. Despite some erratic, and let’s just say, dumb actions (can we say q-tips in the wall folks?) I think Jordan and Jeff could do really well this summer just as they did in BB 11.

But they need to watch their back, because Rachel and Brendon will rip these two apart like vultures later in the game and the rest of the house will smile and lick the bones clean. That’s just the nature of the game. Something tells me it won’t be long before we see the evil lurking within the newbies.

Big Brother Gets Dicked

The feeds snapped on last night at 10 PM Pacific / BB time, without Dick Donato. During the three hours of the Big Brother After Dark episode we got no information, other than he was missing and the other houseguests were clueless. Immediately after that show ended the feeds went to FISH for three hours. When they came back, at about 4:20 AM BB time, Dick was gone and Dani Donato had been given a golden key, a free pass to the final ten. So far, the only official explanation is that he left for “personal” reasons.

There once was a dick
Who played a good trick
On AG the BB producer
He showed up & smiled
Took the money & ran
F her F you & F me
