Big Brother 8: Dick is the winner

Commentary with a Co-Ed
by Ashley Gouveia

If you asked me two days ago who I thought would win Big Brother 8, without a doubt, I would have said Daniele. Surprise, surprise! Dick, the patriarch of the Donato duo, took home the $500,000 prize. Silly me, I actually thought the best competitor was going to win. That’ll teach me for thinking logically when it comes to reality TV.

Is it wrong to have been more excited about the America’s Player reveal than finding out who won? I was dying to see the look on every houseguest’s face when Eric was exposed as this season’s twist. I loved watching everyone’s mind race as they anxiously waited for Julie Chen to spill the beans. I could only imagine what they were thinking the big twist was this year. I laughed out loud when the cat was out of the bag.

It was strange, that through the entire episode, I was actually finding myself agreeing with Jen. I know, weird. Dick treated her horribly and she wasn’t going to give her vote to him. I don’t blame her; I wouldn’t either. No way! If you’re basing your vote on game play, Daniele is definitely a better player. She was honest, in her unique Jen way, for the reasons on voting for Daniele. I have to give her a little bit of credit for that.

Nick and Daniele were reunited for the first time since his eviction. I’ll describe the moment using the BB8 catchphrase: “Awkward!” I wonder if those two are going to put their showmance to the test in the real world. I know that Eric and Jessica will probably try to make it work. But after the America’s Player revelation who knows how Jessica really feels about it.

So with some of our favorite Big Brother houseguests in attendance, (Janelle, Kaysar and Howie), Dick was named the winner of Big Brother 8. That’s the end of another season of backstabbing, betrayal, crying and cursing. What did you all think? Were you happy with the winner and the season as a whole? Let me know your thoughts.

It’s practically the end of the summer season. You all know what that means! Fall is finally here and our TV favorites are returning along with some new potential tube obsessions. I can’t wait to comment on my likes/dislikes of fall season. ‘Til next week.
