Big Brother Wiki

Dustin Simon Erikstrup was a houseguest on Big Brother 8 (US).

After managing to oust his rival and ex-boyfriend Joe Barber from the house, Dustin became part of the ruling Late Night Crew alliance. In week 6, he offered to be a pawn against Dick Donato, believing that his alliance had the votes to secure Dick's eviction. To his shock, however, he would end up getting blindsided in a 4-2 vote on eviction night, becoming the first member of the jury. The voting was controversial as it was decided by America's Player, Eric Stein, who has gone on record stating that if he had the power to cast his own eviction vote, he would have voted out Dick instead of Dustin.


Dustin Simon Erikstrup (born January 21, 1985) is a shoe salesman from Chicago, IL and is of Danish decent. He is openly bisexual.
