Steven Daigle, A Big Brother
Trust me, Big Brother, the 10th season (!) of which debuts on CBS July 13, is one reality TV show we won't cover. Instead, we'll just introduce you to the contestant getting the most buzz in preview pieces: Dallas resident Steven Daigle, whose CBS bio describes him as "a geographic consultant by day and a rodeo cowboy by night."
And, sure enough, in 2006 he was the bull-riding champion at the Cowtown Rodeo, one of the major events on the Texas Gay Rodeo Association circuit. He was also profiled in The Dallas Morning News in November 2005, after the University of North Texas grad moved back to his native Texas from New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina and competed in the International Gay Rodeo Association finals in Mesquite. In short, the dude's a terrific story. Which, alas, still ain't enough to get us interested in Big Brother. Nothing is. Not ever. Swear. --Robert Wilonsky
