Evel Dick -- REMOVED From 'Big Brother' House

MAJOR shakeup in the "Big Brother" house -- CBS confirms Evel Dick Donato had to leave the show for "personal reasons" ... and will no longer compete this season.

The network wouldn't specify the exact reason for Evel Dick's departure. 

Dick -- who won the $500,000 grand prize on "Big Brother" Season 8 -- was invited back on the show this season, along with his estranged daughter Daniele.

Daniele will continue to participate in the show -- and because of Evel Dick's departure, she was given a "golden key" ... which guarantees she can not be eliminated in the next 4 weeks.

CBS states, "His departure will be addressed on the episode to be broadcast on Wednesday, July 13. "

So many naive people in this world . . . . it's all a ploy for attention and to get people to watch. It's all scripted. Those of you tha*****ch this crap and believe in any of it are brain dead. The network/producers are grabbing a hold of your little pea brains right now and you're all buying into it. Google "publicity stunt" for crying out loud. How many of you actually think with your own brains?

He's the ONLY reason this season might have turned out to be worth watching and/or interesting. That guy in the green jacket has to go first or I'm just OUT! Talk about bloody annoying!

Actually it is "Evel" (as in Knievel, a "daredevil" pop-icon from the 70s for those of you too young to remember). That's the way he chooses to spell it.

I for one am gonna miss him. He really knows how to shake things up but yeah, I agree, there's more to the story.

hey @Ralphie, guess what? Porsche and Keith were the two that were nominated, the players in the POV comp are rachel/brendon, porsche/keith, and jeff/jordan. Right now the house wants to evict keith.
