Here's the much anticipated blog post from Dan:
Never say die
Current mood: amused
Alright, so I may have left you hanging a little longer than expected, hahaha. Things have been very hectic between getting back to "real-life" and decompressing from the Big Brother house. It has definitely been an adjustment, but all is going well. I appreciate all the fan support, it is STILL overwhelming to have people come up to me in public, but if I can put a smile on someone's face I will do my best to do so!
I have been getting a lot of offers to do everything under the sun, from appearances, to hosting, to things you wouldn't believe! I am taking time to sort through these things and there are some very interesting deals in progress (can't talk about them, yet!). I've had a chance to do some things around here in Michigan, which has been a blast. Thanks to WRIF for having me on the air again, Detroit Metromix for the invite to the Jay-Z After Party, Mooretosay.com, the Dearborn Press and Guide, C & G News, and the MSU Alumni Magazine. The support back in Michigan has been great and it is good to be home!
I am still working through all of the e-mails and letters that were sent to me, thank you to all the fans for sending them, you all are the best!
Speaking of fans, here are the two most prevalent questions that I get all the time so let me answer them:
1) How do I get on Big Brother? Do you have any advice for my audition tape?
My advice is to be yourself in the audition tape and bring a lot of energy! My path to Big Brother was a long and drawn out one, over a few years. A lot of the Big Brother casting has to do with timing, so if you don't make it the first time, don't give up! Also, do not try to do what I did and give the producers what they want to hear! Just be yourself and roll the dice!
2) How can I get an autograph?
Thanks for being patient with this question! If you would like an autograph, send a self addressed, stamped envelope, ALONG with a note saying who to personalize the autograph to (I will not respond to non-personalized autographs, sorry) the following address:
PO Box 2099
Dearborn, MI 48123
As far as the episodes go, I have only had a chance to watch the first few. It is strange seeing what we lived through, edited with background music, and diary room sessions, but it is hilarious nonetheless.
Memphis and are doing an interview together this Wednesday night in Seattle (10/6/08) with Real Player at 9:00 PM EST – tune in to see the Renegades back in action. You will be able to see the Official Renegade gear for the first time!
The Official Renegade Gear launch is this Wednesday! Keep an eye out for the website.
Once again, thanks to all my family, friends, and fans for all the support since I have been out of the house – I truly appreciate it.
Now it's time to play a game…if you want a shot at winning the last remaining Renegade Tye-Dye shirt I made inside the Big Brother house, all you have to do is go to my favorite website to find out the details. What is my favorite website? You want me to give you the web address? The only thing I can tell you is that it "Is a Car Riot."
