Gay Cowboy, MTV Bodybuilder Among Big Brother 10 Housemates

Big Brother, one of my summer guilty pleasures, is back for season 10 this Sunday at 8, and CBS has announced the cast. Among them is Steven Daigle, a 35-year-old gay cowboy from Texas who describes himself as unique, random, manipulative, and likable:

Steven"Steven is a geographic consultant by day and a rodeo cowboy by night. He is a champion bull rider in the gay rodeo circuit. He attended the Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, TX as well as the University of North Texas in Denton. He earned a Bachelor's Degree in General Agriculture/Marketing and lists graduating from college as his proudest accomplishment. He also worked on a master's Degree in Applied Geography. In the past, he has hauled horses across the country, taken people on horseback riding treks in the Colorado Rockies and served as a camp director at a children's camp. Steven describes himself as spontaneous, outgoing and outrageous. He describes his perfect romantic partner as strong and masculine, financially secure and smart. His favorite activities are being outside with his dog, Payton, a one-eyed miniature Daschund, watching television and working out. His favorite television shows are 'Heroes,' 'Project Runway' and 'Nip/Tuck.' His hero is Chris LeDoux, a former rodeo cowboy who is now a country music star."

Here's a profile of Daigle from the International Gay Rodeo Association.

Also among the players is a 22-year-old bodybuilder named Jessie who seems more than eager to show off:

Also among the cast is a 75-year-old retiree from Texas.

  1. Flared bikini shorts?! Anyone?

  2. SO it's a gorgeous evening, and we're going to 1) stay inside and watch a television show that is 2) about 10 people we have no interest in where they are 3) hermetically sealed inside a television studio sound stage.

    How about this: turn off the television set and visit the real reality.

  3. How bout we all choose what we want to do and leave the negativity behind?

  4. Or we could grow thicker skins, enjoy each other's suggestions, and put the "a" back in front of "a-bout."

  5. i used to watch BigBrother, mostly because it's the only show on during summer... but the last season thrown together during the writers' strike was absolutely more dreadful than just trash... it sucked so bad i'm not watching BigBrother again.
    and i won't be missing that camel-toed kooze Julie Chin either.

    BUT FIRST!

  7. I don't know, I liked James a lot during the winter season. Can't wait to see the rodeo cowboy and the catholic school teacher interacting, with the staunch Obama supporter throwing in her grain of salt... should be interesting.

    Then again, I'm Canadian... like the rest of the world, we learn about Americans by watching Big Brother.

  8. Did anyone else get a cold chill at the thought of reality contestants being seen as examples of Americans?

  9. I've seen most seasons of BB but this year I think I'll pass. This cast does not seem interesting.

  10. One hopes that the gay cowboy on Big Brother 10 doesn't end up being another token gay man, one who's there simply so that straights can pat each other on the back and say "there, we're not afraid to have gay men in our midst". I'm personally sick of us being the useful pity class on permanent exhibit.

  12. Mais oui, mes enfants! Place your bets for how long it takes until:

    1. A straight houser uses the word "fag" or "faggot" and doesn't get 86ed by the network Chenbot's stolen husband runs.

    2. A white houser uses the word "nigger" and doesn't get 86ed by the network Chenbot's stolen husband runs.

    3. Pix/video surfaces on the Net of one of the housers nude or in soft or hard porn; extra points if it's a houser claiming to be straight in flagrante delicto with another man. Not grounds for 86ing per se but further evidence that the show is an exercise in how eager America is to deep throat trailer trash phoneys. [Toi has not lived until one has seen the gay porn vid of the troll with the retarded tattoos and watermelon Jello Mohawk from last season.]

    4. Two or more housers are caught in the overnight feed feeding each other their nether regions while the actual broadcast includes more pixilated butt cracks/nudity and highly suggestive massages/hot tubbing/ad nauseum because the bar continues to be lowered on how soft prime time porn needs to be.

    5. Daigle will be asked to give one of the girl housers style tips; one of the straight male housers will pretend to be considering going bi for him; or he'll express admiration for John McCain.

    6. Some white houser uses the word "nigger"/some straight houser uses the word "fag" or "faggot" and doesn't....What? I said that already? Go on, bet against me. I dare ya!

    10....9....8....7....6..........

  13. Is the bodybuilder going to be able to take his dose of steroids while in the house? It would be funny to see those phony muscles deflate over time...

    Posted by: Mike | Jul 8, 2008 11:29:12 AM


  14. I used to watch the show until it became the best scripted reality show on t.v.. It's way to fixed to be taken seriously.

  16. Yeah, thanks Michael for ruining the whole season for me. Now that I don't have to anymore, I'll have to spend my summer doing something else, like enjoying the sun or something. Bra-vo!

    On a serious note though, I must reiterate I liked James (the watermelon Jello mohawk kid). He was a prime example of a guy who didn't have to act like a big macho idiot to be respected in the house. He was picked on for not being a typical male, yet he stayed true to himself. Loved him.

  17. @ Mike - Jessie is actually a pro natural bodybuilder.

    Posted by: Toby | Jul 8, 2008 12:23:18 PM


  18. Does anyone find the bodybuilder's body attractive? It looks like a cartoon.

    Posted by: Paul R | Jul 8, 2008 12:39:46 PM


  19. Paul R, I don't find it attractive at all. When I saw that an "MTV bodybuilder" was going to be on I hoped it was the one from 'True Life' who wanted to be a model. He was fairly hot.

    I don't know if I'll be watching anyway, because as others have mentioned, last season was so bad with the most absolutely unlikable and dull people you could even imagine. Hope they fired their casting agent.

  20. I didn't think I would ever see the day that I would be typing these words but...

    THANK YOU, MICHAEL BEDWELL!

  21. I find him devastatingly hot.

    Posted by: Toby | Jul 8, 2008 1:30:27 PM


  22. Ummm...
    Side note about Daigle's hero.
    Chris LeDoux, the former rodeo star, is not "now a country star."
    He is now (and has been for a while) DEAD.

    Wonder if he wrote his own bio?

    Posted by: john | Jul 8, 2008 1:41:45 PM


  23. Hell,yeah, I find the bodybuilder's body to be hot hot hot! Not every bodybuilder takes steroids. You shouldn't prejudge. This guy is not so large as to be cartoonish to me, though some bodybuilders are.

  24. That gay cowboy is adorable. Check him out:

  25. He might be hot, but like most white gay men, he's racist. Watch the latest Towelroad link for the video!
