Donny Makes the Big Time.....on TMZ #BB16

Well, if there is some bad news surrounding any of the Big Brother contestants, we all know TMZ is first in line to report it.

According to TMZ, Donny returned home to find his previous position as a high school groundskeeper still open, but he had to re-apply for it.

Cue the sad music.....Donny didn't get the job. Instead, he got a part-time janitorial job, presumably with the same school district.  (You might recall that Donny used to be "Kelly Pickler's janitor", as was mentioned numerous times on the BB16 live feeds.  Perhaps Donny's new position is a similar one....)

You can read the TMZ article here.

For some reason, Donny decided to tweet out this information on Sunday night, as follows:


I don't follow Donny on Twitter....but I found out about this tweet because Derrick tweeted about the situation only seconds after Donny did, as follows:


You might recall that Donny doesn't like Derrick......if that is true, and I was Donny, Derrick's tweet would piss me off in the worst way.

But I digress.....

Why did Donny lose the position that he loved so much?  I seriously doubt it had anything to do with his behavior (or lack of behavior) on Big Brother this summer.  I don't recall him doing or saying anything that would cast a bad light on the fine people of North Carolina.  But I used to work for a huge Fortune 100 company, and it is common for businesses to try to cut costs by "regrading" positions to standardize the qualifications or pay ranges.

If this is the case with the school district, it could be as simple as them trying to refill the position with someone at a lower pay rate.  After all, Donny had been in the same position for over six years, and based on what he said on the live feeds, he worked for the NC school systems for years before that.

So maybe his pay rate was too high, after years of raises.  Or maybe the Powers That Be at Cabarrus County were jealous of Donny's TV time?  Or maybe they thought Donny's presence would be a distraction?

Or maybe they found someone better at the job than Donny was?  I know that won't be a very popular opinion among Donny's many fans, but if you watched the BB16 live feeds, you know that Donny often had a different view of his own performance than we, the viewers did.

Anyway, I'm sure Donny will get some full time employment soon.  He might try applying with vacation property rental agencies....there are a lot of vacation rentals in North Carolina, and if the owners live out-of-state they need someone to keep the grounds up, and also to perform maintenance tasks.

A job like that would allow Donny to have the solitude he needs on a daily basis, and the view might be very nice.  I've vacationed a few times on the North Carolina beaches....and once in the North Carolina mountains.  It would seem like a nice gig to me....

***ALSO***

1.  In Donny's tweet, he says that he's #Unemployed, but TMZ says he has part-time work.  Which is true?  I can't imagine TMZ has a fleet of roving reporters on the ground in North Carolina...

2.  When Derrick was masquerading as a Parks and Rec Coordinator last summer, I heard him tell Donny he could get him a job.  I think Derrick knew Donny didn't care for him, so maybe he was just sucking up.  But I think Derrick does have a good heart---maybe he can put in a call to the Parks and Rec people in North Carolina and hook Donny up with a State Park gig.

3.  I wonder if Big Jeff is somehow to blame for this?  As you recall, Big Jeff visited Donny's hometown and wore Donny's school uniform and even did a little mowing on camera for the CBS show.  Did Jeff run over an azalea bush or something?  Did CBS not get the proper approval for this stunt?
