Donny Thompson

Age: 42
Hometown: Albemarle, NC
Occupation: School Groundskeeper
Three adjectives that describe you: Honest, funny and witty.
Favorite Activities: I love to work, eat and watch TV.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: I’ve lived alone for over 21 years so living with a large group of people would be a huge adjustment.
Do you have a strategy for winning Big Brother?: Lay low in the beginning, befriend all, constantly observe others and make wise decisions on who I align with.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most: I liked Spencer because he was nominated so many times without going home. He was a likable person that I could relate to.
What are you afraid of:  Heights, mice, and public speaking.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of: I paid cash for my house.
Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… Leave everyone with a smile on their face.
What would you take into the house and why: My favorite pair of overhauls, my favorite hat and chewing tobacco.
What would you do if Big Brother made you famous: I would try to be the same person I have always been. Only, more people would know me.

Donny is a small town guy whose claim to fame is that he was the janitor at Kelly Pickler’s high school.  He’s never been on a plane.  He may look like a hunter, but he hates killing animals.

    My favorite player from day one.

    Sadly, he didn’t bring any game, and will most likely get evicted soon.

    I keep hoping Donny will win, but unlikely after this week’s HoH. Dang Donny, I really hope you can stay, u’r like the nicest player out there! I hate the rests of the house, they are all dumb dumb dumb and Derrick’s puppets. You’ll win more than $500k, u’ll always be the winner in our hearts!

    Donny seems to be a sweetheart for sure but this is a game. They all want to win. I wish Donny would win but I doubt it as no one would want to sit next to him at the end cause he will win. Pretty safe to say he will be AMERICAS FAVORITE HOUSEGUEST/PLAYER !!! no doubt there. I am hoping he shaves for the last show cause I have a feeling there is a very handsome guy under all that hair
