Exclusive: A Big Brother-Palooza on The Bold and the Beautiful

Donny Thompson

He's not just "America's Favorite," he's also a soap star! Big Brother 16 contestant Donny Thompson wasn't named champ on last night's season finale of the CBS reality hit — he was evicted from the house weeks ago — but at the end of the show, the North Carolina groundskeeper did bag $25,000 in a viewer popularity poll.

Now he's off to the CBS daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful, where he'll appear in scenes on Oct. 30-31 with Emmy winner Scott Clifton (Liam) and Aussie beauty Ashleigh Brewer (Ivy) that'll riff on the paranoia Donny caused on Big Brother — he was so humble and down-home nice that the other houseguests suspected he was really a genius doctor from Harvard or an undercover super soldier.

New Season in Review: Black-ish a Truly Modern Family

Black-ish

Comedies with an actual point of view are as rare as they are welcome — especially in a fall awash in mediocre new cookie-cutter romantic comedies. Even in a better season, ABC's provocative and very funny Black-ish (9:30/8:30c) would stand out for its broad and biting satire of an uneasily post racial society seen through a very modern-family prism. (It's also about time ABC scheduled a smart family comedy after its multiple-Emmy-winning champ Modern Family.)

Aaryn Gries

Even after getting booed during her eviction interview and being fired from her modeling agency for making prejudiced comments, Big Brothercontestant Aaryn Gries explained to TMZ that those comments don't make her racist.

Aaryn, who warned houseguests they might not be able to see bi-racial contestant Candice in the dark and told Asian-American houseguest Helen to "go make some rice," said she's been making racial jokes for years, but never knew they were offensive because "no one had expressed that I was taken that way."
