Let's Skip Down Memory Lane with Drew Daniel

Some of you may remember this picture from the Big Brother 5 memory wall.  Drew Daniel won Big Brother 5 by shrewdly taking the snaggle-tooth halfwit "Cowboy" with him to the live finale, rather than his showmance victim, Diane Henry.

I think I actually cried for Diane a little, seeing her genuine shock when Drew cruelly evicted her without any advance notice on the live show.  And it didn't get any better for Diane sitting on the Eviction Couch with Julie Chen, holding back sobs as she realized what just happened.

 Big Brother 5 was famous for the Twin Twist, where twin sisters Adria and Natalie were able to switch in and out of the house without being detected for the first 7 weeks of the game.  To complicate matters even more, there were two houseguests who each had identical twins, Drew and Diane Henry.  Here is a picture of these twins in the Big Brother backyard after the end of the BB5 season.
That's Diane with  the Getty Images overlay on her pink poncho (sorry about that) and Drew and Ben Daniel standing over them.

Such happy days.  Except for Diane getting dumped and all...

Drew pursued a career in acting.  Back in those days, the entire Big Brother cast actually thought it would be easy to have a show business career.  That was before reality TV was on every network and cable channel, every night.  Drew appeared on The Bold & The Beautiful.  Here he is with his script.

And here he is with some handsome men who must be members of the cast.  I do recognize the guy on the left as Ridge Forrester, who was one of the Big Cheese Actors on The Bold and the Beautiful.  I think Ridge called the shots on that show.
And here is our Drew with Quentin Tarantino, and some other guy, taken in 2009 per IMDB.  Drew still looks all shiny and hopeful here.  Unlike Quentin, who appears to be on the far side of a few six packs.
So how did we get from there, to here?  It's only been three years, and Drew is only 30 years old.  What could have gone so wrong?

If you don't know, Drew was arrested for 'domestic violence' by assaulting a man in his home on July 2, 2012.  He didn't go quietly, however, and required a good stiff tasering before they could cuff him up and corral him in the squad car.  Unfortunately for Drew, this is the most publicity he's had for a long time.  He even made TMZ--you can read about it here.

Drew picked a bad time to be naughty.  It just so happens that all of the Big Brother fans are online at least 25 hours a day right now in anticipation of the BB14 premiere tonight.

Does anybody know what happened to Drew?  Here is his IMDB page.  It looks like he dropped out of sight after working on the movie "He's Such a Girl".  Hmmm.  I'm not familiar with that film, are you?

Being the nosy FeedWatcher I am,  I also poked around for some information regarding Ben Daniel, Drew's twin brother.  Other than Ben's own rather sparse IMDB page, I came up with nada.

Looking on the bright side, at least Drew didn't chew that guy's face off or anything.  Who knew Drew knew how to fight like this, and was so agro?  I know I might go to hell for saying it, but it's kind of hot.  Big Mean Tasered Drew is kind of hot in a sweaty, Shut-Up-or-I'll-Slap-You way.  But I've always had a thing for the Bad Boys.


  1. Another gay meth user. Yawn.

  2. How good does anyone look early in the morning? He has to study all the time. He has a cute smile with dimples which you wont see in this mug shot. Hes clean and not a drug user. He still reads his Bible. He isn't gay although he has had pictures taken with them. He is so nice he would stand with anyone for a picture. I know him very well. This is the price you pay for fame. The truth will come out. Please dont judge him. This is so painful for the people who know him so well and love him.

  3. So diane and him aren't dating anymore? They were so cute. Well good for her cause he turne out to be a loser!
