Big Brother Wiki

Jerry MacDonald was a houseguest on Big Brother 10 (US).

At the age of 75, he is the oldest contestant in the show's history. He was known for his heated arguments with Libra and Renny, calling Dan Gheesling out for swearing on the cross and going back on his word, and comparing Dan to Judas. Despite his old age, he managed to reach the Final Three. He placed 3rd and became the seventh and final member of the jury after Dan Gheesling cast the sole vote to evict him.
