Long time Big Brother fans will remember that when Dick Donato abruptly left the Big Brother house on season 13. He went into the diary room and came out saying he was leaving. It’s remained a mystery as to why he left until now. The only statement he made was the video above.
Until today, according to an interview with People, “Donato was competing on season 13 of Big Brother when producers called him into the house’s Diary Room. “They told me that something was wrong with my blood test,” he says. “They had done two HIV tests. One had come back positive and the other had come back negative.” The show’s doctor took more blood. Two hours later, Donato learned the life-changing news. “When they told me, I just went numb,” he says. With little explanation, Donato left the show. “They had a car take me from CBS to my mother’s house. She was the first person I told.”
More from People:
We could all see that Dick looked like he’d aged ten years since Big Brother 13. This explains a lot of things that Dick has been up to lately. Like the fact he moved to Ireland for a while. Where this mysteriously happened to his face. I hope that Dick can finally find some peace now. He’s had a rocky relationship with his family and his two kids. Let’s hope this brings everyone back together. It also explains why he is on the show with an ex. I think Stephanie is a great gal for being there for moral support.
Are you shocked by the news? I assumed it would be a health issue, but I didn’t excpect it to be HIV.
