It's a rough choice because I'm not a big fan of the Donato's, but I'd have to say Dick out of the two. I think I'd die if Dani won, I can at least thing of some times where I've liked Dick/he's made me laugh.

Dani.. why? She won the most comps. I think that should count for something!

Anonymous Anonymous said...


She won a buttload of competitions and was the brains behind the operation.

I must be a whiney-ass brat myself, cuz I'm not really all that annoyed by her. I think people pushing for her to be more responsive to her dad's affection have no comprehension of their life outside the house and can really pass no judgment on her. Also the way she acts after losing competitions isn't towards anyone but herself. She's a competitor and (to me) it's understandable that sometimes you tend to beat yourself up over what you could've done.

Daniele's personality isn't as bubbly as Janelle's, but her comp play was just as good and her strategic play was way better. Personal feelings aside, Daniele was the strongest player in the game this year.

...if their marketers are *thinking* they can continue "the fairy tale ending" and then segue right into "The Amazing Race"... Dani's already mentioned it.

We don't have to vote until the 15th, right? The feeds are really really good right now... and getting better by the minute! Over the next 48 hours - hopefully I'll have it figured out. Yikes, but...

Dick all the way.
Here's why- he, I believe, was the first player in BB history to use the veto to take the *other* nominated player off the block. That left him extremely vulnerable. Her "returning the favor" at F4 was a nice symbolic gesture, but it didn't take the guts or risk that his did. She would have been GONE that week had he not done that, thus he "carried" her to this point .

She may have won more competitions, but he won the ones that really counted- that veto, HOH to evict Eric, final HOH parts 2 and 3. She never would have lasted the bunny hop. He lasted for her, and only got down when she told him he could- so yes, they were a team, but he has played for her all along and would sacrifice himself for her. I doubt she would do that for him to the same degree- esp. not in the first half of the season- and his dedication was touching to see beneath the gruff exterior.

Also, I agree w. the PP that Dani is here now because Dick saw the danger in Nick- both a threat to her personal life and her game. That was a protective father move, but she didn't start playing until Nick left.

Dick will probably spend a lot of money on buying rounds for his friends at his bar than making any big charity gift, but Dani would be far less responsible with the money, and probably less generous in sharing with Dick.

I like Daniele, I'm glad they are in the F2, but Dick did the dirty work for her (yelling insults on her command, fighting and generally making himself a bigger target), Dick took the risks, Dick sacrificed, and Dick has tried to heal their relationship and make amends for his mistakes. Dick deserves it all the way.

I can't stand creepy Zach and his "I found God" stunt with Jameka, but I have to say, the guy left with a LOT of class and his parting words were kinder than necessary. I wish D&D had had enough insight to be a little more graceful with him in their victory/goodbye... It'll be interesting to see if they do start working the jury a little against each other.

Dick's inclination will be to defer to his daughter, but I really hope he will make a good case for himself with the jury, and I hope they respect him and his gameplay enough- dirty tactics and all a la Richard Hatch and Dr. Will-- to not let personal grudges get in the way of his well-deserved victory.

I thought about that too Carolyn. They should both get $500k. Hell, they were going to do that for the twins in BB5 and anyone who made it with their secret partner in season 6. Why not do it for someone who was an obvious target/pairing from Day 1 this season? I'd say it's much harder to do, being a known pair, than having a "secret" 2nd half.

They worked some witchcraft all summer-long and should be rewarded for it.

If I had been able to vote, I would have chosen Dani. She deserves it. She's won so many comps and BB threw her in a spin when they put her dad in the house. But she did what she had to do and now look at her!

Plus, she wants to use the money to go to college, I think thats great!

I think Dick should win. He does deserve it being the mastermind behind everything.

It was amazing how he ended up saving themselves from evictions 3 times.

Either way the money goes into the Donatos family.

I can't tell you how happy I am that they both made it to the f2. I agree with Dick that they are the best team ever to walk into the BB house and kicked ass.

Collectively they won 5 HOHs and 6POVs. NOw that's some stats for you Donatos.

I hope they have a good accountant because the check will be made out to one of them and you can't just give that kind of money to someone. They have to be careful not to be taxed twice. (I'm a lawyer - can you tell? LOL).

The National Enquirer also published an article that Drew Carey fought to keep Amber off Power of 10.

Anonymous Beth said...

I'm confused as to where, in the BB rules, that it states if two people are related, the winner of the 500k is obligated to give the person in 2nd place, money. This gets old reading comments from people stating Daniele is selfish, won't give her dad a dime, blah blah blah. Do you REALLY know this as fact? No, you don't. The reason it hasn't been discussed on the feeds is because it IS against the rules to give another HG money. If you watch the feeds you would see this- because they go to FOTH when it's mentioned. Let's get one thing straight, we don't know any HG on a personal level. We have seen each in an element way outside the norm of society. They have lived this for 3 months- we haven't. Each season HGs bash one another, this season being no different. In fact, when someone makes a comment about Dick and Daniele bashing other HGs- I want to say, "What are you doing? You're bashing as well." And why do any of you care who gives whom in regards to money? It isn't like it's YOUR money they're winning. I can assure all of you- next year I'll read updates but refrain from reading comments. Most of you are more brutal than those playing the game.

My vote went to Dick. They got there TOGETHER as a team and I don't think they would have made it solo, but I think Dick will be more fair with the money. CBS, solve this problem and give them both $500,000. That way maybe it won't be a source of contention for them.

Great comments everyone. I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed how similar D&D are. I was watching Dani pop her knuckles outside the other day and said outloud, ohmygosh, she does it just like her dad; I wonder if she even realizes that-LOL!!!

I'm a first year addict and I'm so not ready for this to be over. And yes, I'm with everyone on the hangover and I'm waiting for major withdrawal to start kicking my fanny :-)

Now, what I would really like to see is the HG's watching the tapes of how things went down in the house this season. I think the looks on their faces would be priceless and almost as good as the 3 part HOH comp.

Anyway to get the truth out of the rumors about Amber and her job? Yep, I don't put alot of stock in what the National Enquirer says. I do, however, have great concerns about both mental health and stability (Amber) and physical altercations (Dick) after everyone gets cut loose. I think Dani has the right idea.........leave town for a month-LOL!!!

I'm so glad I taped the last 3 shows. At least when I'm going through withdrawal I can get a fix by watching them.

Good day all. Thanks again Carolyn - you rock.

You're right Beth, there's nothing in the rules that state you have to share. However, they've been a team all along so it's a safe assumption that they will split it. Even when Dick won yesterday he said 'WE did it' and when Dani was making her POV speech she said she didn't think they would have made it without the other. So, not in the rules at all, just a safe assumption.

The reason I think alot of us pick Dick over Dani is because he's the dad and his love for his kids will keep him from going back on his word, whereas Dani's is still a bit iffy for some of us.

Anon 9:01 I think people that way about watching more so this season because of all the rule breaking and things that cbs let slide. Like the racist comments/ abusive statements and nudity, thats what has people up in arms about this season. I have continued to watch even tho my fav left weeks ago. We also saw alot of creative editing on cbs part and the drama music when praying if a fine example or when Dick droped his key the valor music behind him. That set people sometimes in bad and good light.

I am waiting for Dick get out and have some woman punch him square in the face for what he did its coming.

Beth i am not trying to be rude but apparently you didnt watch BBAD last night?? Dani asked" how do you feel" and he said "how do you think i feel i just won 275,000" do the math thats half the prize money hes been saying it for forever. Pretty much proves they are splitting the money right??
The point is that they should not be allowed to share it period. none of the other contestants can... But in this world they can bending rules for the D&D they have all season.
After how many times hes thrown himself on the sword for her and tied himself in knots for her ( even though i believe hes big reason why she is how she is) he should get it at least he will be made sure to see some of it.

Hes doing it today driving himself crazy trying to please her i can't wait to see how long it will take for him to drive her crazy in the house perhaps there should be a poll how soon before Dani cracks and goes off on him being locked in the house alone with Dick. That would be priceless :)

Have been reading for days on how the jury of "good people" probably will vote personally and not strategically (that was before the F2 was official).

And that is strategic how?

WLA @ 2:22 PM

I have no idea how it's strategic- that was my point when I commented on why people feel as if it's an unwritten rule that the prize money has to be split since a father/daughter team won. So many are making assumptions that Daniele won't- hence giving them reason not to vote for her as the AP choice. Yes Dick has said he wanted to split the money and Daniele has hinted around but never outright said= because it's against the rules to do so. This is why I think so many people are off base when they say she's selfish when it comes to the prize.

Carolyn, not hungover -- just very very sad.

I do believe CBS slanted and played up the good vs. evil (evel) this season. Not that they did anything illegal or really even wrong. It is their right and their show and they have the right to prompt players to do/say things to help their ratings.

However, since they did play and promote the show on this premise, they also promoted and helped the outcome. Evil won. That is a statement on America and it makes me sad.

Can't wait until next season and hope it plays out so that my whole family can enjoy the game again.

WLA- the "strategic" voting is over because the game is over. Voting strategically for evictions etc. is to benefit the other game players. Since they are all out of it, their only job is to decide the winner. No more strategy. And I still think some of them will vote for Dani because she was "nicer" (personal reason), but some will vote for Dick because he was a true game player, and that is arguably a strategic vote because it means they are overlooking personal upsets (again, a la Dr. Will and Richard Hatch- remember Susan's rat and snake speech? Ok sorry, wrong reality show :)

Aeona- just because D&D talk about getting $275k each doesn't mean that they are "allowed" to, kwim? I believe the rules say that you cannot promise a player that you will split with them- i.e. you can't offer part of your winnings to collude with each other or advance in the game. However, there isn't anything preventing a winner from sharing their winnings with their family- it's their money to spend how they like, so that's why D&D probably aren't admonished for it. Plus it was clear they were going to help each other to the end without having to bribe each other :).

The fact is that other seasons didn't have anyone close enough to WANT to share money (though maybe Dr. Will and Boogie bought each other a few presents when they won? ;). CBS will cut its checks for $500k and $50k, but if D&D WANT to share it after that (which apparently they do) what can CBS do to stop them? If there's that tight a restriction on what can be done with the winnings in the immediate future, then the winner can slowly gift $ to the other $10k at a time, or can buy a nice car but let the other person drive it etc. There are lots of ways around the rules/tax laws etc.

Forgot who suggested it but I LOVE the idea of replaying seasons on Showtime- I'd watch the live feeds for season 2 all over again in BBAD 3 hour segments. That would be a nice way to get through the withdrawal of another year... And wouldn't it be interesting to see an earlier season now that players have gotten more sophisticated about how they manipulate each other etc?

Carolyn- I've been a BB fan since day 1 season 1, but I just recently discovered BB8 dish- wish I'd found it earlier. I love the format and being able to post without having to formally register etc. Good job with the updates and screencaps etc.- I'll be back next year!
