Big Brother’s Braden Bacha showed his penis, inability to act on gay TV show Dante’s Cove

Less than a day has passed since the Big Brother 11 cast was revealed, and we already have our first nude video of a houseguest. Braden Bacha, who is a surfer, actor, and model, has lots of stuff about him online, like modeling photos and this bikini.com profile, but he has only two credits on his IMDB resume: the homoerotic horror movie The Brotherhood 2: Young Warlocks and episode 205 of Dante’s Cove, a sort of supernatural gay soap opera that airs on here!. In that episode, which is on YouTube, he appeared naked, showing his ass and penis and everything else. There’s an extended scene showcasing his acting talent, but here are the impressive and obviously not-safe-for-work goods as he strips in a hallway.

Update: The video with Braden’s nudity has been removed from YouTube (although you can still watch his acting), but Dudetube grabbed screen shots of the good stuff before it disappeared.
