The Gist:

  • He has never seen Big Brother, but he thinks his season of the CBS show was “boring” and “terrible.”

That would be Eddie McGee, who made it to the very end of Big Brother’s only viewer-controlled season. “I was a 21-year-old snot-nosed kid from Long Island, so just that was able to just be who I was, and hold what integrity I had,” Eddie told Entertainment Weekly in 2022, reflecting on his time on the show. “I was the same person from the day I went in until the day I got out.”

Where is the first ‘Big Brother’ winner now?

Eddie has been acting on screen since his time in the Big Brother house. He landed an agent in New York after winning Season 1. 9-1-1 viewers have seen him play Frank, the therapist of Jennifer Love Hewitt’s character. “I’ve done a couple of episodes for them on the show, which is fantastic,” he told EW.

The Big Brother 1 winner also filmed a recent TV pilot called Eddie’s. “It’s kind of like a modern-day Cheers, starring me and George Wendt, who was Norm on Cheers,” he explained.

Eddie’s IMDb filmography shows he also scored roles on Law & Order, Desperate Housewives, NCIS: Los Angeles, Elementary, and Chicago Med after Big Brother. He also guest-starred in episodes of FBI: Most Wanted, Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens, and The Equalizer.

“The next project I have coming out is called The Creepy School Bus,” Eddie said. “It’s based on this viral video series that I did with a buddy of mine, Paul Hough, on my YouTube channel, called Don’t Turn Around. We’ve been doing these little horror stories. Our targeted audience is middle school and high school kids. It’s kind of like a Goonies meets Aliens. The Creepy School Bus audiobook comes out later this year. It’s actually going to be in every school library in the country.”

What does Eddie McGee think of ‘Big Brother’ now?

As of the time of that EW interview, Eddie hadn’t seen an episode of Big Brother, despite being the show’s inaugural winner. “I never watched my show, never mind somebody else’s f–king show. My show was like watching f–king paint drying, man. My show was boring. It was f–king terrible, from what I heard. I don’t know. I never watched it. And it’s funny, people asked me, years later, like, ‘You never watched it?’ I go, ‘No, I lived it!’”

Eddie also revealed there’s “no f–king way” he’d be a Big Brother houseguest again… unless producers pay him the big bucks. “If they said they were doing all-winners, I’d be like, ‘No problem, but I’m going to need $100,000 upfront.’ Without sounding like too much of an a–hole, I was the first one, I was the first winner, and everybody’s going to be f–king gunning for me, man. I go in there, I know I’m a dead man. I’m first one out. So I’ll do it, but I got to get $100,000 upfront.”

We break down the video below.

A woman calls the police after finding little kids left in a car.

The video takes place in a parking lot with Domi addressing us directly and the words on the screen read, “bro… PLEASE STOP LEAVING YOUR LITTLE CHILDREN IN THE F—— CAR UNATTENDED!!! IT IS DEAD ASFF.”

Article continues below advertisement

The video opens with Domi passionately stating, “This is f—— ridiculous… There is a child left in the f—— car. I’m literally right next to the car right now. Left by herself in the f—— car seat.”

Domi explains that it is cold outside, probably only 45 degrees. Domi then notices that there’s another kid in the car as well. While we don’t see the children for privacy reasons, there’s a baby in a car seat as well as a toddler.

Domi tells us that she called 9-1-1 because she isn’t worried about anyone’s kids being taken away. She explains that if the parents were worried about their kids being taken away, then they wouldn’t have left them in the car by themselves.

The police show up and while we don’t see the interaction, we can hear Domi explain the situation to them. She turns the camera around so that we can see the police start to get the kids out of the car.

The video ends with Domi sitting in her car talking directly to the camera and saying that she doesn’t care if anyone calls her a “Karen,” and that she would never leave her kids in the car, “especially with sex trafficking going around.”

Domi also tells us that the dad shows up. He had taken the oldest child, a 14-year-old, into the store with him. He didn’t even know that the toddler was in the car until the police were there. Talk about bad parenting!

The caption for the video reads, “istg idgaf what y’all gotta say innem comments — DO NOT LEAVE UNDERAGED KIDS IN THE CAR ALONE‼️ if you’re under the age of 13, you shouldn’t be in a vehicle unattended. idc how quick your parents run into the store to grab some rice, STOP TS. people dgaf about what you doin’ when they’re breaking windows and kidnapping CHILDREN. STOP THAT S—.”

While Domi was expecting people to call her out for being a Karen, the people in the comments actually support her. One person wrote, “You did the right thing and I’m really proud of you for it,” while another said, “You are NOT a Karen you did the right thing!!!”

We agree with Domi. A lot of people would have seen those kids and have been concerned, but wouldn’t have done anything. She did something, and many people are thankful for her swift action, especially those kids.

Why Did the Eagles Change Their Logo? Fans Aren’t Happy

Published

on

The Philadelphia Eagles updated the wordmark on their logo and fans weren’t happy with it. Here’s a breakdown of the drama surrounding the change.

The Gist:

  • The Philadelphia Eagles changed the font on their logo in 2022.
  • Fans weren’t pleased with the change.
  • The new logo has a more modern look, but fans prefer the classic font.

Like all NFL teams, the Philadelphia Eagles logo is synonymous with their brand. Established in 1933, the Philadelphia Eagles, hailing from Pennsylvania, have made their mark in the league. The team has won three NFL championships and one Super Bowl trophy. With almost nine decades of football history, the Eagles command a massive and dedicated fan base.

In addition to being known for their boisterous fans, the Eagles logo is iconic. However, the team made some changes to their beloved wordmark. In June 2022, the Philly-based football organization announced that they were changing the font used for their classic logo.

“The Philadelphia Eagles will be adopting and implementing a new, refreshed wordmark,” read a statement from the team, per Philly Voice. “Moving forward, it should replace the old Eagles wordmark in all forms of media and public-facing materials.” The statement explained that the Eagles head, that’s synonymous with the brand, will remain untouched.

For fans of the champion football team, the change came as a shock. Following the announcement, Eagles enthusiasts took to social media to express their concern and question why the change was made in the first place.

The new Eagles logo has a more modern look.

In the previous logo, the word “Eagles” was arched, and featured sharp edges extending from the “E” and “S.” The new logo takes a different approach and has a sleeker design. The “Es” have an inward pointed arrow, but the other letters are untouched. Gone are the shadow and arch that gave the watermark a 3-D appearance. The animated eagle head remains on the team’s logo, although it is now placed above the text.

The Philadelphia Eagles will begin to switch out their player’s jerseys in the 2024 football season, but fans aren’t happy with the change. “So ugly and basic and boring, I don’t want to wear this,” one person tweeted. While another added, “Man they must have done this with their eyes closed.”

The Eagles have made brand changes in the past.

Fans of the Philadelphia Eagles aren’t always opposed to changes made to their beloved team. In March 2022, the team announced the return of their classic kelly green jerseys, which haven’t been worn since 2010. “I’m here to announce that beginning in the 2023 season, we’re going to have the kelly green, classic Eagles jersey and matching helmet and do it the right way,” Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said, per NBC Sports Philadelphia.

Jalen Hurts, Jason Kelce, and the other birds rocked the vintage gear for two games during the 2023 season, and fans couldn’t get enough of it. “Those should just be the regular set. So much better,” a fan tweeted. Meanwhile, others suggested that the Eagles, along with the Seattle Seahawks, should consider making their throwback jerseys the permanent alternative for home games.
