American contestant on a TV game show called Big Brother, a show set in "real time." It is not scripted and is not intended for younger audiences as the language and situations have the spontaneity of real life. Ten young adults, strangers to each other, were selected to live for three months in a closed environment in order to observe their interaction, entering their Big Brother house on 7/04/2000. After voting one of their housemates off every week, the last remaining contestant wins $500,000 on 9/30/2000.
Eddie is a 21-year-old student, 6' 3", 163 lbs. He is the youngest of the Big Brother House Guests. A student at the University of Texas, Eddie is on a wheelchair basketball scholarship and once coached a kids' basketball team. A cancer survivor, Eddie's proudest accomplishment is teaching children that being disabled doesn't mean that you can't live a rewarding life.
Eddie is a good guy to have around the house. His favorite pursuits include landscaping and home- improvement projects.
Eddie counts the Candlelight Diner in Commack, New York among his favorite restaurants. As for books and movies, Eddie's tastes can best be described as eclectic. The best films he's ever seen range from the 'SCTV'-inspired silliness of "Strange Brew" to the dramatic magnetism of "The Shawshank Redemption," to the dark intensity of "American History X."
His reading tastes lean to such literary classics as Jules Verne's "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea," Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island" and William Shakespeare's "Hamlet," offset by his appreciation for a well-told horror story like Stephen King's "It."
When it comes to vacations, Eddie likes to keep it simple and close to his home on Long Island. His idea of the perfect getaway is a camping trip with friends and family at Smith Point County Park in Shirley, New York.
Eddie was the final contestant and winner of the B.B. contest, leaving the experience richer by a half million dollars. He had a celebratory party at Applebee's in Manhattan on 10/30/2000
His media exposure included a guest-shot on "Hollywood Squares" game show (which aired November 23 and 24, 2000), and he began work on an autobiography.
