It’s All in the Family for ‘Big Brother 8’

September 23, 2007 9:00 PM

The “Big Brother 8” season finale, held Tuesday at CBS’ Studio City, Calif., stages, revealed “Evil” Dick Donato as winner of the first-place $500,000 prize, with his daughter Daniele coming in second. The once-estranged father and daughter, unwittingly placed together in the Big Brother house as part of a plot twist, managed to beat out 12 other contestants to make it to the final remaining spots. Fans and family members showed their support for the winner by sporting “I Love Dick” and “Got Dick” shirts—phrasing some worried (correctly) could and would be misinterpreted. The greenroom tent backstage was filled with Hollywood-hungry former “Big Brother” contestants returning to bask once more in reality show glory. However, the brightest spotlight remained on Mr. Donato, who said he plans to use his earning to travel around the world. —Stephanie Robbins
