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. "
