Daniele Donato


7/8/11 – Daniele became the first golden key holder when her father Dick Donato left the show.  She is now guaranteed to be in the top 10


When she joined Big Brother, Daniele Donato worked as a Hooters waitress from Huntington Beach, California. She likes to play soccer and her hobbies revolve around her dog, Disneyland, shopping and photography. She enjoys eating junk food, Dippin’ Dots and Rubio’s Fish Tacos and her favorite actors are Kirsten Dunst, Jude Law and Edward Furlong. Daniele is single.

She joined Big Brother 8, along with her father, Dick. The two of them ended up being the final two contestants that season, and Daniele emerged as the runner-up. Since then, she became the co-host of Housecalls on Mondays with Gretchen Massey and has since worked towards her college degree. In 2011, she was asked to appear on Big Brother season 13, where she and several alums returned to play doubles with eight new houseguests for a chance to win the grand prize of $500,000.

  1. dani i’m really sorry your dad is such a dick. hence his name. you turned out to be a smart, witty, funny, strong, confident woman. FYI this bandar act is just that an act. i wish your dad did what i did because it is so important for a young girl to have their dad involved in their life. i changed my entire life to get custody of my daughter when she was 7 and she turned out great. 2nd year at a university getting good grades. i’m so proud of her. anyway, i just wanted to give you an “atta girl” you did great on the show. you were hadicapped from the beginning and considering you rocked. best wishes to you.

  2. I could not stop laughing when racheal made it to the final 2, the look on danieles face lmao. I hope when she looks in the mirror she sees a sore loser, actually lets not give her that much credit after all her vocabulary doesnt go past shocker!

    1. faith you stupid dumb asshole. dani has more class in her little toe than rachel and breden could ever have combined. dani didn’t meltdown bawling in the bushes when she didn’t win a competition. you can go to hell, faith.

  3. I am glad that Daniele mentioned about the ‘personality’ part to Rachel publicly. I know that she and Rachel will not stay in contact.

    If I was her, I would forget Jeff and Jordan too and move on with better friends like Porsche and Kalia.

  4. Dani has always irked me the wrong way from day one on BB8. I gave her the benefit of the doubt tho on BB13, thinking its just game play. The last straw was when she tells Brendan that she “isnt used to being in the jury house, like you loser.” They have no more contact with guests in the house at this point. Thats not game play, that is her true character. She really is just like her father Eval Dick. Thats as bad a comment as I can make about her.

  5. Dani really knows this game inside and out. I will give credit where credit is due. The only mistake she made was playing too hard too quickly and turning on her alliance. she probably would have made it further had she stuck with the vets a little longer and not burned bridges with them. Oh well, she tried, it didnt work out – now she can retire from BB once and for all….

  6. Danielle is a loser and made nothing but mistakes in this game. She has no skills in this game and in the season with her dad, her dad took her to the end because she would have never been able to do it on her own. If she was half as good as people think she is, she wouldn’t have been given the boot. Kalia and Porchia were her puppets and were floaters throughout the whole game as is Adam. Daniele is a two faced bitch who uses everyone to get what she wants. She criticizes other team mates for the same things she does and whines when things don’t go her way. The game is much better without her and I was disappointed she made it as far as she did, but some people are gullible. As her dad said, she is making stupid moves, SHOCKER!!

  7. Sexy, down to earth, and natural born fighter. Even though I hated that she was evicted, at least she left good friends like Kalia and Porsche to take control of the Big Brother House.

    If she and Dominic do hook up, I would want to see some pictures.

    1. i think dom is a latent homosexual momma’s boy. dani would not waste her time with him. i am saddened that jeff backdoored her and broke their deal. dani was playing solo and definately the best game player in the house. i think if cassi would have stayed longer they would have been an unstoppable duo.

    1. Are u for real? That’s ur daughters? In my opinion..She is playing better than everybody else,are just as good… Which is good and bad.. Why? Because she has gamesmanship skill(which is a good quality)But also make her a target in the game. But I have real issue with this yr game(CBS)Reason: The cards Deck is stacked against the new players….the The two couples have a fan base already established that would even include my fav Daniele. If not Brendon would have never even been vote back in house.Y or N
