Drew dumps Diane for Cowboy.

Drew dumps Diane for Cowboy.
The final two houseguests on Big Brother 5 are Drew and Cowboy, fifty percent of the group known as the Four Horsemen. Pleading with Drew, the winner of the HOH competition, to take them to the final two, Cowboy professed his love (…”whatever decision, I love you. You are a brother to me.”) while Diane only said she cared (“…I care about you more than anything in the world. You know that and whatever decision you make, I respect you.”) Drew chose love and went with Cowboy, Diane left the house in tears, and then Drew and Cowboy started hugging and crying. After the jury vote, one will win $500,000, and the other will get $50,000. Either way, Drew has bills to pay–to his agent. As John Powell points out in his recap, on the live feeds shortly after the eviction, “Drew admitted to Michael that an agent from a twin casting agency made him aware of the opportunity to be on ‘Big Brother 5′ and he probably owes her 10 per cent of his winnings.” The finale airs Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
