Our early picks for Big Brother frontrunners -- We place bets on Dustin, Eric, Kail, and Daniele

Our early picks for Big Brother frontrunners

Dustin
Stats
An affable 22-year-old who peddles shoes in Chicago.

Pros
As one of six houseguests forced to live with their enemies (this season’s big twist), he immediately garnered our sympathy when housemate/ex-lover Joe announced that Dustin gave him the clap.
Cons
Anyone who can’t defend himself in the face of Joe’s STD accusations might be too weak to stick around for long.

Eric
Stats
A 27-year-old class clown who works as a talent-agency assistant in New York.

Pros
Clearly this season’s sharpest contestant, Eric was selected by the BB producers to be ”America’s Player” — meaning he can secretly earn a quick buck by doing what the viewers tell him.
Cons
If he lets his secret status slip, Eric could face a swift eviction when it’s discovered he’s cashing in early.

Kail
Stats A cunning and conservative 37-year-old working mom from McKenzie Bridge, Ore.

Pros
Named the first Head of Household, BB’s oldest woman is both friendly and shrewd.
Cons
Her homophobic comments in the diary room could turn off Dustin fans. And she may second-guess her decision to play, since she has a husband and three kids back at home.

Daniele
Stats
An emotionally fragile 20-year-old waif who waits tables in Huntington Beach, Calif.

Pros
She scored pity points when it was revealed that her dad, Dick — a tattooed tool whom she hadn’t spoken to in two years — was moving into the house.
Cons
If blood really is thicker than water, she could end up teaming with Pop, and we all know how the house abhors alliances.
