Dick Donato, a 44-year-old bar manager from Los Angeles, won Big Brother's eighth-season winner during last night's live finale broadcast of the CBS reality show.

"I'm taking a trip man!" said Dick when Big Brother host Julie Chen revealed the jury's vote. "I'm getting the hell out of here away from some of these people. I'm going to relax, I'm doing an around-the-world thing... for sure."
