'Big Brother' Housemate 'Evel' Dick Donato Has Left the Show

If you can't stand the heat, get out of the 'Big Brother' house.

'Big Brother 13' premiered just last night, and already, one of the show's most polarizing players has left the house.

CBS has just announced that 'Evel' Dick Donato -- the love-him-or-hate-him winner of Season 8's $500,000 prize who returned for this season as a dynamic duo with his estranged daughter Daniele -- has left the building.

During the premiere, Donato promised to keep things in the house "interesting" but, as seen on Showtime's 'BB: After Dark' feed, he disappeared into the Diary Room and never came back out. His daughter Daniele seemed concerned, but his whereabouts were still a giant question mark.

Now we have an answer ... sort of. Here's the statement from CBS:

"Due to a personal matter, 'Big Brother' houseguest Dick Donato had to leave the game unexpectedly on Thursday. His departure will be addressed on the episode to be broadcast on Wednesday, July 13."

The CBS summer hit returned for another season of strong ratings, winning in total viewers Thursday night with 7.7 million, up from last year's premiere.

Will you miss Evel Dick? Will his departure make this season better or worse?

I already knew this from watching Big Brother After Dark but it's still pretty lame that you put a giant spoiler in the title of the post.

Have to admit it; with him gone things will be a little less stressful for the other players. Too bad - some of them could really use his insults to arouse their personalities.

Maggie Furlong, in case it was unclear, I was talking to you... How about an answer? You seem to want to shoot your mouth off, why not explain why this was done? Because it's indefensible? There's about another day or two that I'll wait, but then I'm gone if you can't even muster an explanation for this stupidity.
