Evel Dick Donato
Richard Louis Donato, known as "Evel Dick" Donato (born June 24, 1963), a bar manager from Los Angeles, California, is the winner of the reality game show Big Brother 8. He and his daughter, Daniele Donato, are the only family member pair to win the American Big Brother program's top two prizes in the same competition. Dick holds the record as the show's oldest winner (age 44 at the time), and Daniele is the youngest person (having turned 21 during the competition) ever to win one of the American program's top two prizes. Donato was a stand-in for Keith Richards in the motion picture Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. Because of Donato's claims to have met, known, or even dated various celebrities, he has been accused of lying just to drop names. However, Dizzy Reed of the rock band Guns N' Roses says that Donato is not a name dropper, that people drop his name. The nickname "Evel Dick" originated with an email address Donato once made up.
