Dustin Erikstrup was a houseguest on Big Brother 8.

He was evicted in Week 6 by a vote of 4 to 2, placing 9th and becoming the first member of the jury. The voting was controversial when Dustin offered to put himself up as a pawn against Dick Donato. The vote was decided by America's Player, Eric Stein. It has been argued that if Eric 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 Portland, Maine and is of Danish decent. He is openly bisexual.
