I admit that until Big Brother, I didn't know who Dirk Benedict was. But I am so glad that he went into the house for I fear I may not have discovered this wonderful man.
He was the only one who entertained me in this rather hard to watch series.
What first attractted me to Dirk was his honesty. He said what was what and you knew exactly where you stood with him. Next, was his intelligent wit that was wasted in that house due to the fact there was no one there to banter on the same level as him. His one liners has me in stitches such as 'My house is brown, my clothes are brown..... My shit is brown.' Also, I found him to be a true gentleman - even when he was about to do his eviction interview, Davina told him to sit down, he goes to the chair but being a gentleman that he is, waited for Davina to sit first. There's not many men like that left in the world. I also loved that he fell for the classy Shilpa. Carole has written that he is a woman hater (she also says that those 3 girls have done nothing wrong :shock
but I think she thought he was serious with some of the comments he made when he was trying to get himself up for eviction. I found him to be a woman lover. I think he likes his women to be ladies (don't know about the rest of the country but ladies are a dying breed around where I live), hence the attraction to the beautiful inside and outside Shilpa. I think he was appalled by the very un-lady like women of the house and their disgusting 'man' ways. Like his comment on Danielle talking like a truck driver.
Dirk was on BBC Breakfast this morning and said he will be writing a 3rd book. I hope he's a fast writer, I am looking forward to reading it
Dirk is the type of man that many ladies are looking for (as recent goss has proven). He is a dying breed.
There's lots of fans over on the BB forum who would love it here. Should we invite them over?
Anyone here who knows Dirk? Did I do an accurate character summary? :wink:
