How Big Brother 10's Dan Talked His Way to $500,000

After a long summer of manipulation, betrayal and all the other underhanded adjectives that go along with Big Brother, Catholic school teacher Dan Gheesling was crowned the game's winner by a 7-0 vote from his evicted peers. We caught up with him to learn his plans for the cash after besting his "Renegade" ally, what he believes was the defining moment of his game (which might surprise you), how he really feels about Keesha and when he'll be heading to confession. TVGuide.com: Congratulations! What are your plans for the $500,000?Dan Gheesling: It's very overwhelming. I do have some plans, but I'm not sure how immediate they will be. My girlfriend Monica is probably going to be getting a gift that fits on her left ring finger, but when that's going to happen, we still need to talk about. Other than that, it will probably be some smart investments. I want to stay in teaching a read more

September 16, 2008 (Finale Night!)

Like last season, Krista and I decided to have a little post-winner crowning chat about the finale episode and the season in general. Below is our conversation. We have so enjoyed blogging this season and want to thank all of you for your very active participation. Share all your final thoughts (and questions for Memphis and Dan) in the comments. We'll see you next time! — AdamAdam: Dan!!! Was there ever any doubt?Krista: No there wasn't! I thought it was pretty obvious after the jury questioning. Though, after Ollie was ousted I thought he'd never win, but it really turned for him in the end.Adam: A well-deserved win in my opinion.Krista: People were impressed with his play. You are right — well deserved! 7-0: That was a bit surprising.Adam: Yeah, but again, it make sense I think. Could April have been more a mouthpiece for Memphis before the interrogation?Krista: I know, she has him by the short ones. She looked like she was summoning Catwoman in that outfit when they w... read more

Big Brother 10's Jerry: "I Don't Have to Apologize"

Jerry MacDonald made history before he ever walked through the Big Brother house's front door by being the oldest person ever cast for a reality TV show. And then the 75-year-old made memories by fondling a fellow houseguest two-thirds his age and being in the middle of several of the season's most heated shouting matches. Even so, the great-grandpa from Texas worked his way to the Final 3 before being evicted just short of the prize money. In our chat he tells us why he was so grabby, why he makes no apologies for his behavior in the house and the real reason behind his problems with Dan. TVGuide.com: Getting booted just short of the money can't feel good.Jerry MacDonald: It was a great ride, and I played as hard as I possibly could. I don't feel I have to apologize for any of my actions. I felt good about the people in the end, and in the last half of the season, I tried to play nice to improve my image. To get to the Final 3, I think, was qui read more
