Memphis Takes "Big Brother" for a Ride

9/18/2008 8:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Memphis, the "Big Brother" contestant who won a 1969 Camaro the show didn't even own, has decided he doesn't want the car anyway.

After setting up a test-drive to see if he wanted the classic car -- which "Big Bro" would've had to purchase from the rightful owner -- Memphis realized the gas-guzzler wasn't for him and chose to pocket an undisclosed amount of greenbacks instead.

It probably works out better for Memphis anyway. He can buy a better car for the cash and it will have a warranty to cover repairs for a few years.

I don't think he's buying a new car with the money. He's going to use it for business.

They'll have to rent a car for the Vegas trip.

That's crap. BB should have given him the car, thats what he won. Memphis should NOT have been able to choose between cash or the car, that was not the prize in the comp. he won. But since BB gave him cash-money, we should know how much he got.

Good for him, Big Brother is stupid for even having the car as an option if they didnt own it. I wonder how much he got, probably $25,000. Oh and according to other houseguest, the car he chose was messed up anyway. The interior was torn up and the vents were messed up.

Oh and they were supposed to be in Vegas but BB has them doing interviews and things like that (including wrap party). Plus Dan and Memphis assumed they got their checks that day but they dont get them for 3 wks so who knows.

Can you worthless morons please tell your pathetic stories using proper grammar? I don't understand what you are trying to convey. Society has no use for you whatsoever. Go get a life. Wait, there goes Britney's sister's boyfriend, we would really like to get the scoop on him.
