"Big Brother 13" ended for the season Wednesday night, when veteran houseguest Rachel Reilly took home the $500,000 grand prize. While Rachel found love with fiancé Brendon Villegas on the show last year, this time she emerged with love and money, making her one of the biggest winners in the show's history.
Now, with 13 seasons of the voyeuristic reality show completed, here's an update on some of the show's most memorable past winners.
Dr. Will Kirby- "Big Brother Season 2," 2001
He's a doctor in real life, but he plays a reality star on TV. Or not. While Dr. Will is one of the most well known "BB" winners of all time, don't expect to see him on an upcoming all-stars episode. After competing on two seasons of "Big Brother," Kirby posted a statement on his website this summer declaring that he has "officially retired from competition based shows." If you want to see more of Dr. Will, you may have to schedule a consult at his dermatology practice.
Jun Song- "Big Brother 4," 2003
It was the year of the "Ex Factor" twist, when Season 4's Jun Song was sequestered with her ex boyfriend, Jee Choe, in the "Big Brother" house. Despite that unexpected diversion, Jun won the jackpot-even putting her ex on the chopping block in the process. These days, Jun dishes about "Big Brother" on her website, Jundishes.com. The native New Yorker is now married and living in Belgium.
Evel Dick Donato- "Big Brother 8," 2007"
Bar manager, name dropper, call him what you want, but Evel Dick Donato is one of the most notorious players in "BB" History. After winning the jackpot in 2007 (beating out his own daughter, Daniele) Donato has become somewhat of a de facto "Big Brother" expert. His RTV Zone website has become the place to go to get the scoop on the hottest reality TV shows on the air and he's popular enough to peddle a line of tee-shirts with his name on them. He returned to "Big Brother" for six days this season before leaving due to personal reasons.
Adam Jasinksi- "Big Brother 9," 2008
He was the winner in the "Big Brother" house, but now, sadly, this former "BB" champ is in the big house. Earlier this year, Season 9 winner Adam Jasinski was sentenced to four years in prison for drug and tax evasion charges.
Jordan Lloyd- "Big Brother 11," 2009
Fans of Season 11 winner Jordan Lloyd got a double dose , when she and her and boyfriend Jeff Schroeder returned to the "BB" fold this summer. While Jordan didn't win the jackpot this time, her "BB" fame has garnered her an extension to her reality resume. With two summers of "BB" and last summer's stint on "The Amazing Race" under her belt, what will next summer bring?
