Who is the best (and worst) Big Brother winner ever?

You can always expect the unexpected when it comes to Big Brother. The show has proven over its 20 seasons — which includes last fall’s Over the Top installment on CBS All Access — to have more twists and turns than a pretzel. But one thing has remained the same: At the end of every season, one person is crowned the champion and presented with a $500,000 prize.

But that doesn’t mean all Big Brother winners are created equal. So who is the ultimate Big Brother champ? Is it the Evil Doctor (Will Kirby) or is it Evel Dick? Is it Lisa Donahue, who did not vote her showmance boyfriend back into the game because it would have made her a target, or is it Derrick Levasseur, who was never a target all season long? Is it Dan Gheesling, who used

Another Mega Deal Lost

You can probably pack a potential mega deal between Verizon and The Walt Disney Co. along with all the other wished-for-but-never-realized mergers gathering dust in your media Hope Chest. But don’t throw away the key just yet.

Fox Business Network got a chance to shout out a question to Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam from behind the barriers at the Allen Co. summit in Sun Valley, Idaho, Wednesday asking the phone company chief if he was pursing a deal to buy the Walt Disney Co., to which he simply responded, “No.” 

The Allen conference is the annual retreat for media giants and has been a veritable petri dish for some of the biggest deals in the space – Disney CEO Michael Eisner hatched the plan to buy Cap Cities ABC after bumping into Warren Buffett, who was on his way to the golf tees at the conference,

Verizon Backs Off

Less than a month after he goosed the stock by saying he was open to a mega deal with Comcast, Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam turned down the hype notch a few ticks at Verizon’s much anticipated Analyst Day Monday (May 8), claiming the telco is under no pressure to do transformative MA.

Verizon has been dogged by analysts and investors that have insisted the telco has to do a big deal along the lines of rival ATT, which in October announced a $108.7 billion merger with Time Warner Inc. That deal, still pending, came just a year after ATT purchased DirecTV for $48.5 billion.

Verizon has focused instead on smaller deals – after much agita, it expects to close its $4.5 billion purchase of former internet icon Yahoo in the second quarter – but some analysts have called for the
