BBDish Exclusive Interview with BB10 Dan Gheesling's Sister Kelly
Because of the promos and pre-season interviews, we started the season with all kinds of preconceived notions about the Big Brother 10 houseguests. This statement applies more to one HG than the rest, and his name is Dan Gheesling. We were ready to toss him out with the bathwater before the live feeds even sparked up for the first time...
Now with a week of Dan under our collective belts, we're getting to learn who he really is, and I gotta tell ya, I'm impressed. Tonight's Diary Room session on the Sunday Show makes me even happier I chose to make this the first family interview of the BB10 season.
Without further ado, the Kelly Interview. BBDish-folk, meet Dan's sister Kelly.
Please feel free to post the url to this interview anywhere you like. Copying and pasting, however, is a big no no. Here's the url:
BBDish-Carolyn: Hi Kelly. Thank you for making the time to talk with us. Dan's fast gone from one of the most hated in the house to one of the most loved. Those pre-season promos sure weren't kind!
BB10 Dan's Sister Kelly: You're telling me! :)
BBDishCarolyn: CBS made sure we knew his politics. What would you like the BB loving audience to know about your brother?
Kelly: Dan is very strong in his beliefs and morals. I can't argue that. Quite frankly, I think it is a very admirable trait of his. Of course the pre-show interviews capitalized on his political and personal stance on controversial issues, however, as you can see now in the house, he is definitely not the type of person to judge or push his beliefs on to other people. The more time he spends in the house, the more I see the real Dan. The funny, fun-loving, compassionate, and loyal person that he is. All of that is not show...that is the brother that I know so well. Even though, I have never seen him with a mustache until last night.
BBDish-Carolyn: Had you ever watched Big Brother before this season? Dan seems to be a student of the game...
Kelly: Big Brother has been our family show since Season One. We are loyal feed watchers and forum readers. So you have to imagine what a surprise this was to our entire family. Dan has watched seasons on and off, but I know he is a huge Dr. Will fan.
BBDish-Carolyn: Have you been watching Dan on the Live Feeds?
Kelly: Of course!
BBDish-Carolyn: This week, Dan's on the block, but he's definitely not the target. How are you and your family dealing with it?
Kelly: Watching Big Brother is always intense when your favorite player is on the block.
Its just a little more intense when its someone you are related to. :) But, whether or not he makes it another week or another month, we are so incredibly proud of him. We back him 100% and if this is his week to go, I know he'll come home with such a great experience and amazing stories for us all.
BBDish-Carolyn: What's your take on Dan's game play thus far?
Kelly: Going into the house, I wasn't sure what his approach was going to be. But one thing I knew for sure was he was set on continuing to be a role model to his students and his football team. I think Dan is playing a straight and loyal game with integrity. He's a smart, crafty guy though... he takes in and observes more than some of them might realize. I'm positive many of his moves are calculated. And its good to see that he can do that without compromising who he is or what he stands for. It's kind of a breath of fresh air in the Big Brother house.
BBDish-Carolyn: Last but not least... If you could have a 3 minute uncensored phone call with Dan right now, what would you want to tell him?
Kelly: Right now I wish that I could tell Dan how proud I am of him. And how much I miss him. And how much we all miss him. Dan is such a huge part of our family, its hard not being able to pick up the phone and check in on him. I would ask him what he has up his sleeve, because I know there is a master plan...and of course, I would tell him to get Libra and Memphis out stat....but...something tells me he already realizes that needs to be done.
BBDishCarolyn: Thank you very much for making the time, Kelly! :) We wish Dan the very best of luck, and we hope to hear from you more as the season progresses.
Kelly: Thanks Carolyn!
